A dream about the mist

You are walking through a forest….

A dream about stormy weather

You dream of walking through a forest. Mist snakes through the trees towards you, and it grows very cold. Fat raindrops fall. Something moves in the forest ahead. You press on. There is a rumble of thunder, far away.

A dream about a cave

You dream you are in a damp, dark space. The walls are clammy; you can feel greasy rock when you stretch out your hand. It is smoky in here, and the only light is flickering firelight.
[Unlocked with Having Recurring Dreams: What the Thunder Said 4]

Settle down for the night

Maybe something will turn up in the morning.

Light a candle to explore with

If you have one.
A matter of luck: it could go either way.
[Unlocked with Having Recurring Dreams: The Burial of the Dead 10]


clouds.png

A dream about a rockfall

You dream that you are trapped in a cave, in the kind of silence that only follows extremely loud noises. A rockfall has blocked the entrance, but you could still go further into the cave. You don't know what lurks there, but it can't be anything you'd want to know about. It seems to be breathing.
[Unlocked with Having Recurring Dreams: What the Thunder Said 5]

Face your fears

Go deeper into the cave. It is your only chance of finding a way out.
A matter of luck: it could go either way.

Curl up into a little ball

So you might die here, trapped and alone? Fair enough. That's still better than facing whatever's lurking in this cave.
(Watchful challenge)

This is the gate of the womb of the earth

I will enter and be reborn.
[Unlocked with Stormy-Eyed 1]

Examine the rocks

Ah yes. Oolitic limestone, always prone to cave-ins.
[Unlocked with Stormy-Eyed 1]


clouds.png

A dream about a gathering

You dream of standing on a clifftop, surrounded by a gathering of familiar people. They murmur softly and pay no attention to you. The weather is getting worse; wind threatens to knock you over, rain spits in your face and there's a constant, ominous roll of thunder.
[Unlocked with Having Recurring Dreams: What the Thunder Said 6]

Listen to the people

Maybe they're saying something important.
A matter of luck: it could go either way.

I will dance in the rain

And the people will dance with me.
[Unlocked with Stormy-Eyed 1]

Ask a question

Why are you here?
[Unlocked with Stormy-Eyed 1]

A dream about shelter (Std)

You dream you are wandering the docks, in the late afternoon. A storm gathers; light rain begins to fall. The clouds above the Unterzee are thick, heavy and grey, like black sheep's-wool. Thunder rumbles, though you saw no lightning. You should not…
Unlocked with having Recurring Dreams: What the Thunder Said 7

Take shelter in the Pale Horse

A grim, unappetising prospect, this tavern, but better than the freezing rain.
   A matter of luck: it could go either way.
Unlocked with Recurring Dreams: Is Someone There? 10

Take shelter in a heap of nets

That pile of discarded fishing-nets may be slimy and stinky, there may be rats or spiders - but burrowing under them is still a more appealing prospect than a Wolfstack tavern.
   A matter of luck: it could go either way.

A dream about a lonely clifftop

Unlocked with having Recurring Dreams: What the Thunder Said 8
You dream that you are back on the windswept clifftop. It's raining so heavily that you can barely see. The people are gone, and the wind is shouting. You turn. You are no longer alone. A young girl, blindfolded, stands near the cliff edge. You look down at your hands. You are holding a stone knife.

Drop the knife and run

Get as far away from her as possible.
   A matter of luck: it could go either way.

Try to help the girl

What else can you do?
   A matter of luck: it could go either way.

I will throw the knife into the sky

The sky will accept my offering!
Unlocked with Stormy-Eyed 1

Examine the knife

What is it made of?

A dream about a storm in a garden

You dream you are in a garden…
Unlocked with having Recurring Dreams: What the Thunder Said 9

A dream about a storm in a garden

You dream you are in a garden, an achingly familiar one. Some things are in the same old places - flower-beds, paths. Some have moved. But the real change this time is the weather. The sky is dark and the air has a rotten orange hue.

Walk the paths

Visit the silver fountain.
unlocked with having Recurring Dreams: The Fire Sermon 10
   A matter of luck: it could go either way.

Take shelter

Stand beneath those trees. A storm is brewing.
   A matter of luck: it could go either way.


clouds.png

A dream about a desert

You dream you are standing alone in a desert. There is nothing here but dry, ochre dust. Hot thirst scratches at your throat. Suddenly the sky darkens and splits. You are drenched, instantly, by a wall of warm rain. The dust drinks it in and turns to mud. Green shoots erupt from the earth, twisting towards the sky, leaves unfurling like umbrellas. In seconds, you are in a rainforest. A tremendous thunderclap sends you scrambling through the trees. Lianas reach for you like hands and twine around your limbs.
Unlocked with having Recurring Dreams: What the Thunder Said 10

Fight the vines

Something terrible might happen if you don't.
   A matter of luck: it could go either way.

I will dance with the vines!

I will let them lead me!
Unlocked with Stormy-Eyed 1

Examine the vines

What species, what variety could they possibly be to grow so fast?
Unlocked with Stormy-Eyed 1


clouds.png

A dream about a storm-tossed clifftop

You dream you are standing on the clifftop once again. The little group and the blindfolded girl stand with you. Thunder rolls and grumbles continually, and the rain falls in stinging sheets. The people murmur wordlessly, but the thunder shapes itself into words that tell of their indifference and subtle malice.
Unlocked with having Recurring Dreams: What the Thunder Said 11

Stand with the girl

The poor thing is all alone here. You can't just look on.

Stand with the group

If something bad is going to happen, you would far rather stay in the background.

Rescue the girl

She may be the Innocent Princess! It is your duty.
Unlocked with Dreaming Strange Dreams: A Game of Chess 10


clouds.png

A dream about an earthquake

You dream you are in a crowded town square. You recognise the place - you are deep in the heart of the Forgotten Quarter. But the buildings are whole, and the streets are full of colour and noise. You should not be here. People walk past without seeing you. Urchins race by without even attempting to pick your pocket. You spread out your hands, but you can't catch anyone. Cats see you, of course, but they merely ignore you. The ground is shaking as you stand there; the rumbling grows, and buildings start shaking apart. You realise the blindfolded girl is with you. Stones are crashing down around you, now. You need to find shelter.
Unlocked with having Recurring Dreams: What the Thunder Said 12

Leave the girl behind

having Recurring Dreams: What the Thunder Said 12
The square is still full of people, even if they can't see you. One of them will look after her. You need to save yourself.

Drag the girl with you

having Recurring Dreams: What the Thunder Said 12
What kind of person would you be if you just left her?


clouds.png

A dream about a stone knife

You dream you are standing on the clifftop, in the grip of the storm. The blindfolded girl is with you, the knot of people stand a little way off. A hooded figure detaches from the group and leads them in single file to form a circle around you. Their murmuring sweetens into a gentle, tuneful chant, and you can finally make out some syllables. They insinuate their way into your ears and twine around your mind.
Unlocked with having Recurring Dreams: What the Thunder Said 12

I will join in the singing

I will worship the storm and the thunder!
unlocked with Stormy-Eyed 1

Observe the ritual

This is of great anthropological interest, surely.
unlocked with Stormy-Eyed 1

Watch the people

Just stay still and see what happens.
   A matter of luck: it could go either way.


clouds.png

A dream about a violent gale

You dream you are back on the lonely clifftop. The world is still a wall of grey water. But you can hear that far below, a foamy grey sea crashes onto wicked sharp rocks. No doubt in your mind that the rocks are grey, too. The wind rises and rises until its whispering has turned to a shrieking in your ear that you can't ignore. You have to try to understand it.
Unlocked with having Recurring Dreams: What the Thunder Said 13

I will dive into the water!

I will swim in the eye of the storm and reach the heart of the sea!
unlocked with Stormy-Eyed 1

Analyse the way the wind is amplified by the rocks

Those unique sounds must be made by hollows and tunnels, no?
unlocked with Stormy-Eyed 1

Listen hard. Concentrate.

If you can just tune your ear in the right way, you can make something out…
   A matter of luck: it could go either way.

Option 4: Search the horizon

Scan the sea.

A dream about thunder

You dream you are back on the stormy clifftop….
Unlocked with having Recurring Dreams: What the Thunder Said 13

A dream about thunder

You dream you are back on the stormy clifftop. The chanting group is at your back; in front of you, the barefoot blindfolded girl is holding her hands out, but standing still.

I will leap to the centre of the group

I will become the priest of priests!
unlocked with Stormy-Eyed 1

Put a stop to this barbarity

This pagan ritual has gone on long enough.
unlocked with Stormy-Eyed 1

Stand still

Watch and wait. Surely something is about to happen?
   A matter of luck: it could go either way.

A dream about a sacrifice

You dream you are standing in a group of people…

Unlocked with having Recurring Dreams: What the Thunder Said 14

A dream about a sacrifice

You dream you are standing in a group of people, advancing together towards the edge of a cliff. Grey mist swirls around you in rags. The sky is so saturated with rain now that you could almost be underwater. You are robed and hooded, and you are chanting words that you don't understand. Thunder growls, tells you that this is the giving of a gift.

I give myself as the gift

I willingly offer myself to the thunder!
unlocked with Stormy-Eyed 1

Resist the thunder

It is not speaking to you. This is not happening.
unlocked with Stormy-Eyed 1

Wait

Do not interfere.
   A matter of luck: it could go either way.


clouds.png

A dream about appeasement

You dream you are walking in a familiar garden. Each pebble on the path is dear to you, each blade of grass. Sunlight slants in long fingers from between dark grey clouds. The air is fresh and clean. You are wordless, for now; aware, angry, vague and demanding.
You walk over to the edge of the abyss, by the toppled fountain. Look down. A cat's voice, telling you to step forward. A tug of bat-claws, holding you back.
Unlocked with having Recurring Dreams: What the Thunder Said 15

Step into the abyss

What have you got to lose?

Turn back

You are dreaming, not honey-mazed.


clouds.png

A dream about a dark, cold place

You dream you are high above a city, swathed in fog like wet soot. You are no longer blindfolded. You can see all the lights of the city far below, spread out and twinkling like a sky of red stars, the river winding in a path of darkness across it.
Unlocked with having Recurring Dreams: What the Thunder Said 16

Watch the Lights

So beautiful, so serene.
   A matter of luck: it could go either way.

Fix your gaze on the city

Remember that your home lies among those lights. Think yourself away from the thunder.
Unlocked with Stormy-Eyed 1

I have reached the thunder!

I am one with it. I rejoice.
Unlocked with Stormy-Eyed 1

A dream about a fleet of ships

You dream you are watching the shore…
Unlocked with having Recurring Dreams: What the Thunder Said 17


clouds.png

Who is the third that walks always beside you?

You dream you are watching a fleet of ships spread across a sparkling sea…
Unlocked with having Recurring Dreams: What the Thunder Said 18
The fleet was sailing due East, but its course is gradually turning North.

Follow the fleet

Just with your mind's eye. Only a fool would actually go North. [This will allow you to review your dreams in a different light.]
