A person who visit the Dreamlands in his dreams. Dreamers generally remain within the Dreamlands for as long as they are asleep in the Waking World. Time in the Dreamworld is fluid, but generally a dreamer will be in the Dreamlands a week for every hour his Waking body remains asleep. Dreamers live fairly normal lives in the Dreamlands, even those who become adventurers.
They must eat, drink, and sleep just as in the Waking World.

They must have clothing and shelter, all the material goods needed to furnish their home, and armor and weapons if they plan to go adventuring. And for all this, they must have money. Many dreamers become adventurers as the quickest means of acquiring wealth they can turn into money, but there is also every sort of professional and craftsman in the Dreamworld that one can think of.
Many dreamers use the Dreamlands as a refuge from a disappointing or hard life, and many use the Dreamworld as an opportunity to start over or live the lives they want.
Some will even marry and start families, and because of the fluidity of time, many can live for many decades or even centuries. However, the Dreamlands is far from a paradise.
In addition to the need for money, the presence of criminals, monsters, and wicked beings makes it drewmlands dangerous place. Dreamers can be injured and become sick, they will grow old if at a slower rate, and all die at one point or another.
A dreamer whose dream body dies can never return to the Dreamlands. Still, one advantage is that the reverse is not true – a dreamer whose waking body dies can elect to live in the Dreamlands for the remainder of his dream life, provided his dream dreamlamds is still alive. What happens to such dreamers, as well dremalands natural-born inhabitants, when their dream bodies die is as profound a mystery as what happens when a non-dreamer dies in the Waking World.
The ability to dream usually begins with the onset of puberty, but it can appear later or in rare cases even earlier. Certain drugs and poisons can trigger latent abilities while certain magical and religious rituals can direct a non-dreamer to find the Seventy Steps.
Anyone permitted to enter the Dreamlands by Nasht and Kaman-Thah may return on subsequent nights, even if they have no dreaming talent, but they must learn how to find the Seventy Steps on their own. Sign In Don’t have an account? Retrieved dreamands ” http:
