Upcoming Dream Event Infopost
Friday, May 27 - Wednesday, June 1
A potion left behind by former inmate, Anissina von Khrennikov, will be released into the air soon. It will be circulating through the dome and causing the inmates of Marina Asylum to share each others' dreams or nightmares.
These dreams may be more vivid than usual. Your character will also find themselves maybe getting sleepy a little earlier than usual and sleeping more deeply and for longer. Characters can be awakened although it will take more than usual and they won't be dropping in the streets. That evening should seem normal enough to everyone. After all, it's not strange if a couple of people sleep a little earlier than usual. Later on it might be more noticeable as the night owls of the facility start napping, but by then who is still up to even notice? Characters will not fall asleep before Friday (5/27) and they will not wake up completely until Wednesday (6/1).
If you don't want your character to be affected, then they managed to avoid the affects of the potion. Good for them! They won't be able to see any of the dreams, and you'll need to ask permission before having your character wake others. Of course even if they try it the other character is likely to drift back to sleep. At least they don't seem sick!
There will not be an event post for this. You will make a post describing your character's dream (or dreams since it's not uncommon to have more than one through the night) and people tag into them. Much like with real dreaming your character may realize they are dreaming or they may not. The same is true for your guests. The primary dreamer can take care of designing the dream world or the dream can evolve with the combination of minds present. Players will need to work these details out together.
Dreams can be just as average, bizarre, traumatic, or sexy as you'd like. The potion may be amplifying things after all!
When people do finally start waking up on Wednesday it should be very much like waking up from any dream. The memories may be very strong at first and then quickly fade with time. But this did happen. It won't be uncommon for people to realize they shared a dream or saw unusual things. Don't expect other characters to wipe things out completely. Also, don't expect characters to remember everything in stunning clarity.
You can choose to make dreams open to everyone, open to existing CR only, open with permission, or closed to a few people or one person; just make sure there's an OOC note on the dream post. If you provide more than one dream option, they can each have different security levels of involvement. You may also want to provide your preferred contact info for ease of plotting.
Since some dreams will require more collaboration than others, please feel free to use this post to make plans. Completely optional! But for those plotting here feel free to use this:
Use the question thread below for questions, so they don't get overlooked!
Update 1: If bits of memories are in the dreams that involve other characters in the game you should get that character's mun's permission first. For example: If I had Euphie dreaming about becoming geassed, I would need to get Lelouch-mun's permission since that reveals a secret about her character as well.
Update 2: Just to clarify, you don't have control over whether another character remembers your character's dream. You can only control who participates/sees your character's dreams. So, if it is a sensitive dream make sure to add whatever closed/with permission/limited access settings you want as you post!
