...to sleep, perchance to dream... Ay, there's the rub for in this sleep of death what dreams may come? - Hamlet Distribute 8 points across Willpower, Imagination, Intelligence, and Dreaming. Choose one Downside per skill (the greater the skill, the more dangerous its Downside): Willpower invites Vice Imagination breeds Phobia Intelligence hides Secrets Dreaming shelters Irresponsibility Calculate your Dreamworld abilities: Dexterity = Dreaming * Intelligence Strength = Dreaming * Willpower [*]Legerdemain = Dreaming * Imagination Health = Intelligence * Willpower Perception = Intelligence * Imagination Charisma = Willpower * Imagination [*] dream abilities: flying, breathing underwater, summoning objects... To use an ability, flip a coin. Heads is +1, tails is -1. Flip until you get the other side: Heads, Heads, Tails is a +2; Tails, Heads is a -1. Add that to your ability, and compare it to either the difficulty of the situation (from failproof 0 to impossible 16), or by comparing your roll to the target's: racing Dexterity vs Dexterity, punching Strength vs Health, bluffing Charisma vs Perception. As Dream Weaver, your job is to narrate the Dreamworld. Use Downsides against them to bring their nightmares to life - complete with running in slow motion. A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality. - John Lennon
