DREAMSCAPES: The Definitive D20 Guide to Worlds Beyond Sleep is an idea for playing dream worlds. There is great potential in the idea. The resource does a good job of fulfilling it.
The main idea in the PDF is that a dream world would be able to be affected by its inhabitants. It?s designed for D20 but because of its small amount of reliance on mechanics it can apply to other systems without too much trouble. I have used this system for a dream encounter and a trip inside a magical item to unlock its power. This resource did the majority of the work, I altered it a bit and reworked a few mechanics, and it all went well. If you know your game and what you are aiming for in your dream world this book will lead you to how to pull it off. If you are drawn to the concept of having a strange encounter or just throwing off your party for a night, get this book.
The Dream use of this PDF I threw at them when they finally found the mystic who could help them find the answer they needed agreed to help them. As the next meeting started they woke up and were not where they expected to be, and then started finding out things didn?t work the way they should, and slowly started figuring out how to use the world they were in (with some help). At the end they defeated the enemy and found out what they needed to know then woke up in the Mystics tent to find out that short-term memory loss was often a side effect of a quest trance. They kind of figured it out about ? through, but they still had a great time.
Be creative and you will get great use out of this resource, and your adventurers will get a very memorable night.
