“Who is your dream character?”
“Real people in a dream world”
Imagine the world where our dreams and nightmares are real. Imagine living there.
The Small/Personal Setting
Whatever we come up with as wanting to play, as a group. This could be anything from a spy story to a dungeon crawl to a super hero game. However I am hoping for something that reflects well upon my idea for the Big Setting.
The Big Setting
There is a place where our dreams and nightmares take on a life of their own. What would it be like to slip into that world?
There is a place, another world or dimension, where the dreams of mankind shape the world. Those dreams are alive. They bear children, and they form societies which collect the lore of visioncraft.
However, in this realm, the dreams of a dream are nothing but dreams. The dreams of those who come from Earth, however, are often real.
There is a realm somewhere wherein the dreams of mankind on Earth manifest. They shape the world forever. The people who were given rise by dream go on to have children. If they are cut, they bleed. If they are cut down, they die.
The reason for this is some strange attunement to the dreamstate of people who reside on Earth.
On rare occasion, humans from Earth (wakers) slip into this new world. Those who do so are called many things… outlanders, origine’s, etc. They have varyingly limited ability to dream and shape the world that they now inhabit.
