”A dream which is not interpreted is like a letter which is not read.”
- The Talmud
It’s been a busy week for Traverse Town. There’s an established tea shop in the Fourth District, a budding potion shop in the Third District, and Riku and Sora have been kind enough to provide a guide to caring for your Dream Eaters. The Moogles are doing a booming business in street clothes, potion ingredients, and popcorn. All in all, even though the sun still doesn’t rise, Traverse Town still keeps busy during its days.
Its nights, however, are starting to get interesting. It turns out “to sleep perchance to dream” is all too accurate here, and you find yourself having the same dream over and over when you go to sleep at night. You dream of locks and keys, places and people and things that have been locked up in your life, and you find yourself trying to open the locks - or maybe you already have, you’ve figured out a way to open up those locks and you’re trying to recover what’s been locked away. No matter who or where or what you’re dreaming of, the dream eventually resolves to one single image: a golden keyhole, floating alone in the black, and though you know you have to unlock it, you simply cannot reach it, no matter how hard you try. Something is preventing you from getting there; you don’t know what, and you can’t get around it, but it is there and it is in your way.
You wake up before you can ever reach that last keyhole.
But maybe you’re not alone in having that dream. Maybe someone else can help you figure out what it means. It’s worth a shot, isn’t it?
Welcome to Week Four! Yes, everyone is now having dreams. In a dream world.
Additionally, we’ll also be having an event mid-week this week. It’ll be combat heavy, so please keep that in mind when signing your characters up.
