Military phantasmagoria

Out of ideas for mash-ups or the next big thing?

For the A-Z Challenge I'm posting 26 suggestions for new genres. How serious each is I leave you to decide; I have my eye firmly on this debate.

Military phantasmagoria

A tale of the participation of one or more communities in a dramatised, ritual or imagined conflict based on arcane projection technologies. Events likely centre on the fulfilment of roles assigned, tactics and strategy, and refinement in technique. While individuals may or may not be aware of the nature of the conflict, plots and subplots may concentrate on the preservation of the charade, and perhaps at all cost, even if the cost itself is fictional. You could think of it as Catch-22 meets The Truman Show meets Disney's Fantasmic!
