A dream about a dirigible

You are sitting in the gondola of a dirigible, passing north above a flooded desert. The moon stands in the sky. It will never be day.
Unlocked with having Recurring Dreams: Death by Water 6

It's getting colder. You can't be expected to wait here forever.

A dream about your home

Back on the surface! How charming! The moon is rising outside your window! And all your dear familiar things around you. Warm firelight. Birdsong outside. It's been so long since you've heard birdsong.

The moon shines on a flooded desert. The waters lap around the wreck of a dirigible. The night breeze that flows through the open window is cold and salt and sad. Your stomach growls.
