Urgent Evoke method

Using 'mythology heroes' to engage a 'highschool' group of audience. Have the option to upgrade yourself to be an 'Agent'/Wisdom keeper in a certain domain. At UrgentEvoke.com they did this very well I think.

Using a fictional 'hero' narrative also has the benefit to explain the do's and don't if you start a local chapter.

One can see this as avatars in a computer game you play, they help you raise awareness and help focus your challenge adoption.

This could be an 'overhead relief' if OPENideo is growing, next to 1:1 guidance and involvement from 'senior' members/agents, basics can be wrapped in a play based narrative, making the growth of OPENideo in terms of human resources possible.

All being said, UrgentEvoke came with a price tag I think to make it like this. Inspiration nevertheless I think, for sure on the 'mentor/agent' aspect.

I guess the real challenge is moving beyond the thrill of the game and real-world action. Something for our awesomely creative community to consider if they're building upon this for the upcoming Concepting phase. (Ashley and I would be quite keen for you to design our outfits while you're at it ;^)
