If some kind of of magic waking nightmare world you might actually get to make some rolls before the player knows its just a dream.

  1. Mix in some omens (or the notion of omens) and these dark dreams are going to generate some serious player paranoia.

    1. a bad dream area fx cursed fetish might be cool making it impossible to rest properly if not in cult

  2. Creepy: having a bad dream

    Very creepy: having the same bad dream every single night forever
