We are the dreamers of dreams. We are the people that can make ourselves lucid and we all thrive in that. We have been dreaming for a very long time and none of us truly know why we haven't awoken, but most of us don't seem to care. We live in a world in which we have complete control over ourselves. Some of us awaken some stay for much, much longer. Are some of us dead, or are we all just dreaming? Here are the "rules": We are all lucid dreamers. We can change appearance at will, give ourselves impossible abilities when we feel the need, and we are never truly harmed. Many of us are just sleeping people that happened to become lucid. Some of the people don't even need to be lucid. A player can just portray a character as they might act in a dream. The only catch is that the dreamers cannot always control the world around them. Each dreamer has a personal landscape (created by the player) that they are familiar with, but most dreamers (due to the nature of dreams) find themselves wandering into each others worlds. They often meet other dreamers but due to the irrationality that dreaming can bring, they hardly ever believe other people to be anything more than figments of their own creation. Players' personal design is only limited by their creativity and general etiquette. You can be just about anything you wish to be. Traveling/interacting with another player's world should be a focus here, but players can just have fun expressing how their character would change their own world. As a jump-in might imply, players can simply hop in like a random dreamer who recently put their head down to sleep. I'm hoping that this design fits the section well and allows for plenty of players to be able to hop in and just get creative. This is my first attempt at any sort of RP here, so I'm trying something broad. My goal here is to just have some simple character interaction in any sort of setting a character might "thrive" in. With that, I'm going to start a short bio and describe my character's setting. Bio's aren't necessary and can be posted in this topic, or the OOC. (And here's the OOC thread: https://www.iwakuroleplay.com/threads/we-are-the-dreamers-of-dreams-ooc.56116/ ) ~~~~~~ Name: Mikael Gender: Male Age: (Unknown to Mikael) Height: Shifting between 5'10"-7'0" Appearance: Mikael is a tall and very pale being. His physical features can be simulated by looking through a horribly unfocused camera lens. His features are so blurred that the most that can be made of him is a general shape of a human body. No organs, eyes, or small appendages can be made out. Mikael doesn't appear to be wearing clothes but due to his constant blurriness he doesn't need them. Personality: Mikael is extremely new to the dreamscape and lucid dreaming. He, like all beings of his experience, is almost completely unaware that he leads (or possibly lead) a waking life. He is confused and has barely achieved the ability to control his personal environment. Currently, Mikael is in a very discomposed state of mind and is trying to piece his new setting together. Dreamscape: Mikael's dreamscape in empty. Nothing but a white backdrop as far as the eye can see. This is reflected by his amateur status as a lucid dreamer. Since Mikael is still collecting his thoughts, random ideas tend to form into objects in his dreamscape, or his mind may change part of his setting. These changes often disappear soon after being made up, since Mikael still can't completely focus his mind into making a stable home. ~~~ Mikael had never breathed a more neutral breath of air. Or at least that was how he felt. Breathing was never really something Mikael had ever focused on in his life before, other than when he felt ill. However, this felt off. Mikael has never in his life questioned why he was breathing normally, but after brief contemplation, Mikael discovered why this had irked his interest out of him. Mikael realized that at regular intervals and at far too long of periods, he wasn't breathing at all. So to put it simply, Mikael was breathing normally, but at times he wasn't. That was good. Or bad. But he wasn't dying, so what of it? In fact, Mikael found that he didn't even need to breath which was rather relaxing considering how confounded he was. He also figured that he didn't need to see, mostly because there was literally nothing around him worth looking at. Mikael was surrounded by absolute nothingness, with the exception of light. However, light wouldn't do him much good if there was nothing to look at. So, Mikael thought for an extensive amount of time about what might be worth looking at. He decided that a mirror would do quite nicely and soon enough a small looking glass lightly bumped into what felt like his left cheek. To his disappointment, the mirror had little worth looking at other than a faintly peach (but mostly white) blur.
