Brace yourselves—it’s time for another trilogy of episodes as we dive into the library for a book of exquisite density. While Isle of the Mighty (our previous three-fer) was long in addition to dense, Dreams and Nightmares is a trim 128 pages with standard-sized font. So why the excessive episodage for it? Because this is the first, last, and thus far only entry in the Changeling canon to give us a thorough look at the Dreaming, whose impact on the world of the game cannot be overemphasized. This week, as we enter the Near Dreaming, we’re joined by (friend of the show, Patron, and host of Mage: the Podcast) Terry Robinson to talk about the overall cosmology and metaphysics of this plane, its connections to broader Mage and WoD cosmology, and specifically the Nearer side of things. Much mayhem ensued!
The book can be purchased from https://www.storytellersvault.com/product/2173/Dreams-and-Nightmares?affiliate_id=3063731, and if the interwebs are a kind of Dreaming, then here are some of our Realms:
