The Basecamp 33 Forum is the headquarters for Mountaineer activity. It is connected to the Basecamp 33 website and is where most of the puzzle solving occurs.

Overview Edit

The Basecamp 33 Forum was developed by Bash on August 2nd [1] to better facilitate conversations between the Mountaineers. On August 30th, Endri became the main forum moderator, switching places with Eaves. Due to her record keeping and information gathering skills, it was decided that she would be a better fit for that aspect of the Mountaineers' social media [2]. From then on, Eaves would take care of the Weekly Recaps.

The Forum works in tandem with the main Basecamp 33 website. Real-time puzzle solving and character interaction occurs on the forums, while that information is compiled into weekly updates on the blog.

The Forum as a Hub for Puzzle Solving Edit

The Basecamp 33 Forums are the primary location where puzzles are solved. The Fragment Category separates each fragment into its own section, and with most of the legwork being consolidated into a few threads. There are a few notable exceptions - such as Fragment Four when recruits utilized group private messaging to hide their knowledge from The Devoted. In addition to the fragments category, the Exploration Category holds loose threads, often with information spanning multiple fragments or even phases.

In many instances, the Forum has also served as the point of contact for major characters. Cole Sumner eventually joined the forum at the end of Fragment Three and was a 'ground operative' for much of Fragment Four, posting his information on the forum. Similarly, Reader joined the forum to relay information to Mountaineers in secret and Martin Rank posted his audio recording of Fragment Eight's finale.

The Forum as a Movement Edit

After the events of Fragment Four, Itsuki had a revelation - to empower other Mountaineers to create magic through artistic means. In doing so, he created The Campfire Project, a space for Mountaineers to discuss magical endeavors and theorize about the guilds.

One of the most noteworthy projects in the Campfire section is Operation Nepenthe - an endeavor spearheaded by recruit OracleSage to knit scarves in Guild colors for the homeless.

Hidden Categories Edit

Hidden Categories are sections of the forum that don't appear on the main page of the forum. The most notable of these is the CJ Bernstein category, which holds notifications of CJ's vlogs, fragment recaps, and other meta-game related subjects.

The other hidden category is the Cabinet of Otherworldy Wonders - which is the off-topic section of the forum. It holds general discussions like music discussions and other things that might not fit on the rest of the forum.

Hidden categories can be found in the latest section of the forum, or by using a direct link to the category.
