The Dreamkin


The various creatures that serve the Bloated Moon.

Dreamkin is the generic name for the half-material, half-ethereal creatures created by the Bloated Moon of Locastus.

By tapping the very essence of the spirit world (the Aetherium), and joining it with the essential salts and vapors of the physical world (the Materium), the Moon is capable of creating new forms of life, often bizarre, but occasonally beautiful in its flagrant abnormality.

The Dreamkin all share certain charachteristics, such as a partial resistance for material concerns such as gravity, nutrient intake and physical injury. Since they do not operate under the same rules as a fully Material creature, one of the Dreamkin is stronger, tougher and faster pound for pound than any natural being.

Due to the spirit-matter interwoven with their physical beings, Dreamkin are never particularly intelligent. Their psyche functions more along the lines of instincts and whims than logical thought. This makes them unpredictable, and have to be slaved to their mistress to function properly. The same etherical component reacts violently to psycic energy and makes them supremely sensitive to psionic assaults or strong negative emotions. Unless they are protected by powerful mental shields, a Dreamkin will instinctually panic and flee from an emotional outburst, if its strong enough.

The Moon has been known to come down heavily on those who hurt or destroy her creations, therefore the people of Locastus leave them alone as much as possible.

On rare occasions, the Moon have given power over some of her Dreamkin to other people. Remus Maal, the Wandering Magus, is said to have been able to command the Orbats, and the Mother Superior of the Guild of Whores can, in times of great need, call upon Nightgaunts to defend herself and her flock.

Hello Ouroboros!

This one is not up to your brilliant standards - it is incomplete and there are (shudders!) spelling errors! Can you touch this one up a bit?
April 22, 2008, 4:36
Yeah, val, I agree this one needs a bit of attention. Or perhaps removed altogether...? Its not really necessary...

You could convert it into a stub, then you could come back to it when you wished, but you could still link to it from other subs.

It's neat. I'd like to see this go somewhere.

3.5/5 for now.

Hooper McFin's Two Shot Portal

       By: dudeington

Now, this ol' ramblin fellow tends to walk his talk a bit too far down the train sometimes.. So I'll be brief in my recantin' of how it was my Tavern "came to bein'" on the multiverse as a weave of it's own spell.. And how I'm even alive to tell the story!

You see it's simple really, trust me.. that's my specialty, keepin it elementary. And you can trust this old Bard.

Anyway, this one night these wizards get a ramblin' on about the temporal exististance of space and time and how it could be manifested in a weave of super dimensional space. whereupon the folded space would give rise to an infinite number of entrances and exits to one or many spaces. Now, seein' how my talkin' sometimes get's locked into the way us folks used to talk back in the ol' west. These wizards didn't know I was a master of the word. and I had heard everything they said. They were also a bit over the wagon, while I was steerin' the show.

So that's how it came to pass, I struck a bargain with the wizards. They come to me in the morning and conjure up their idea into reality and I'd pledge them my life, my existance.. in essence my soul. but in a much nicer sense of the word. So they came by in the morning a half remembering our talks the prior evenin'. And I recanted their words verbatum, and that's how it came to be. The spell was complete that afternoon. My tavern would be the super dimensional cube that would exist in this weave of space and time, folks could come and go as they please, knowin in mind some of the rules and limitations set forth.

A few of 'em as follows.

No feller can be causin a ruckus inside any of my fine establishments, as always rule number one god damnit.

n' second the portal works kinda tricky. When ya outside ya cast the spell and lend your will to luck a bit and regardless the doors to the bar will appear, the windows a luminescent amber.. you can hear the chattee but ya can't see in. And the catch is the door might be locked, in which case you chalk it up to lady luck and go walk off and try again in an hour. Now most times the door pops right open and from the outside you always come in the front door, immediately greeted by myself or one of our many fine patrons of Hooper McFin's Ale & Steakhouse.

Now when ya cast the spell from inside the Tavern, another catch comes up. The back door is mainly a secret for the non-initiated staff and the regulars but for sake of the prose let's assume we all know there's a secret door in the back with a portal there. Now when you go on through this one, you got two scenario's you oughta be aware of. One is ya pop outside relative to the same spot you came out. The other is, you walk back on into this one or another of our many Hooper McFin's Ale & Steakhouse.

so it's a clever quantum railroad I got my tavern and my people's caught on. But, Hey the show's sure as always goin. ohhh' rutin tootin skidoodle -

** And that's it.. that's the only notes I found on the spell, apparently out there somewhere is a Tavern caught on the mighty ebb and flow of the multiverse. Well. at least I can put to rest my torment as to the condition now referred to as "Hooper McFin's Teleportation Paranoia".
