I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you, that look in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
And I know it’s true that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you, I know what you’ll do
You’ll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream
The city is rotten. It becomes more decrepit every year. More neglected, more impoverished. Even the weather seems to be getting worse - the sun never comes out anymore.
All hope is gone. Your life sucks. It’s monotonous, filled with ungrateful coworkers and clients. When you get off work, you return to your shitty home just so you can do it all again the next day.
To make things worse, you’re suffering from a serious sleeping disorder. When you do sleep, you always have the same dream, and it bothers you. It’s a brighter place, with vibrant colors and happy people. There lives a person, a person you can’t quite remember. Someone who talks to you sometimes, but you don’t understand them. You always wake up thinking you’re missing something important. That someone needs you.
Maybe someone encouraged you, or maybe you drove by and signed up on a whim. Whatever the reason, you decided to go to a sleep clinic to deal with your disorder.
There, the nurse let slip something important. Everyone in the waiting room is having the same dream. You all look at one another. Your eyes lock. An epiphany. You know.
Someone is important.
Someone needs you.
[This game is not what it seems. Everything is steeped in deep symbolism, based on Jungian dream analytical theory. It is a game of exploration, and finding the meaning behind the concrete. All strengths and weaknesses must be inner qualities. You may have other skills, but whether and how you put them to use is because of something inside you. Everyone must have a sleeping disorder. If it prohibits you from doing something, or inspires you to do something, you can play the card.]
