First topic message reminder :

Tod and Yoren, on their way to Kevranstown, begin the journey with silence. It was not precisely a silence of discomfort, and it was not precisely discomforting; yet the silence was evocative of suppressed words, and this lent the journey some awkwardness of its own. Neither of the pair exactly wanted to speak -- nor did they need to speak, having nothing to say and not much in the way of companionship at all. Or, at least, that's what the silence between them would suggest. Each occupied himself for a while with some other manner of activity, until the thoughts borne of the silence grew too heavy upon the minds of one of them...

"I suppose that would be wise." Yoren concedes.

Privately, he just hopes he doesn't dream. Or at least doesn't remember them.

Sadly, his wishes are not granted.

When he goes to sleep, his dream opens upon a dark and tangled forest...

[Yoren's dream]

After the dream ends, Yoren wakes up covered in chills, much like before, but the omnipresent feeling of dread that accompanied the other dreams seemed to be absent. If the other ones were nightmares, this one was a cruel joke.

He gets out of bed and starts brewing a pot of coffee.

"No, I just... Eh..."

He's pondering whether to explain the dreams to Tod.

A touch of concern appears on Tod's face.

"Whenever I sleep, usually, it's accompanied by nightmares. Usually. Last night... Was a bit different."

Yoren flushes slightly and explains the dreams he's had so far, in order.

"Do you ward your dreams?"

"Ward my dreams? No. I wasn't aware that you could ward against the mechination of your own subconsious."

"Oh, certainly. Just as there are psychoactive substances which can alter neural sensory input and perception, there are magics outside of potions and salves which can have the same activating or inhibiting effects. Many of these are tied to amulets in some cultures I have studied, often in praise of some great deity who watches over the supposed Realm of Dreams... but I digress. If you have not been warding your dreams, it could mean... perhaps they are being influenced by an outside force. Perhaps not, but I do know of some demons and derived creatures which have historically caused people to experience their worst nightmares again. It's recorded in A Study of Inner Demons by the old Lord Bowen, a psychologist, demonologist, and the brother of a man who went mad after an encounter with some sort of imp. Or, perhaps, you are receiving omens. You said your last dream was different; it could be prophetic. What could it mean, the woman you thought dead appearing to you in your dream? Hm, it depends; did you recognize the setting?"

"Hmm... I'm no expert in divination, nor even aware of how precise a field of magic it is, so I'd better not make any judgments. But - her mannerisms were noticeably different, you said?"

"Do you think you could have been projecting thoughts of someone else you know who is typically frightened and jumpy?"

"...Dreams can be magical. In several reports, people with the rare Talent of Dreamwalking could use dreams to foretell the future, or touch the dreams of others to communicate from afar. Perhaps..."

"Perhaps she is still alive*. You said you never found her body, right? She could easily have been Turrned."


(*for certain values of "alive", meaning "not dead".)

Tod nods understandingly. "Would you like me to make you an amulet against dreams?"
