    1. 17-02-01 Arthur's Castle, Animals Switching Bodies

      by , 02-09-2017 at 06:00 AM
      It was the Dark Ages, and I was involved in a battle for a castle in Britain on a cliff. Kind of reminds me of Tintagel castle now that I think of it. Enemy soldiers were trying to use rope to scale the cliffs and reach the castle. I informed Arthur (or did I simply propose the idea?) of traps we'd installed in the cliff. It's hard to explain, but the edge of the cliffs (on the top) was "on hinges" and acted like a trapdoor. When the soldiers reached the top, it "flipped" down and sent the soldiers falling to their doom. I felt pretty pleased with myself. I thought I could do well for myself in this age, building crazy traps for Arthur.

      The next dream. A weird one. It took place in this "park", some kind of zoo where creatures of various animal species lived... except their souls would be randomly swap bodies! I encountered a man, who was actually a bird living in the body of a human. He said he hated it. In the beginning of the dream, I was in the body of a big ape (orangutan I think). I was climbing a tree (or something resembling a tree, the "branches" were quite thin and straight). Despite having all the ape's climbing abilities, I was not comfortable hanging from that branch fifty feet in the air. I also remember encountering a group of elephants. Later in the scene, I found a group of men (humans, I think I was human myself). I think these men were enemies, or at least rivals in some way. Their "leader" said he knew who I was. He said he knew I was involved with a major battle over a thousand of years ago (he said the name of the battle, I forgot), referring to my previous shenanigans with Arthur.

      I was with *REDACTED*. *MORE REDACTED DETAILS*. I kissed her, a slow and long kiss - and it felt great. My recent real-life experiences augmented this experience. And that's all I say on this subject.
    2. [04-10-2016]

      by , 10-04-2016 at 07:19 PM (Snehk's Dreamlands)
      With younger sister I entered an old and rusted bus. Driver took us through some woods into an old village. We left the bus and wandered around old cottages. It was cold afternoon and it seemed like it was going to rain. I looked at trees all around, they were quite beautiful. I was intrigued by some strangely shaped leaves. Then the forest disappeared and we found ourselves in some chamber, there was a pedestal with many buttons on it. I stared at it, wondering how it works. Then I recalled that I've seen this chamber before and tried one combination. I pushed buttons to try different set, but it turned on traps. Arrows shot from openings in walls that were put in numerous places, then a robot with appearance of black haired woman in red dress moved and tried to hit us, but it had movement restricted to just one track.
    3. #206 - Tomb thing and traps (plus a little bit of adventure)

      by , 03-06-2016 at 06:34 AM (The Oneironaut's Odyssey)
      Me and a friend (I think Daniel?) are in an old Egyptian-style tomb (like something Indiana Jones would be running around in). The place is booby trapped and has puzzles, there are 2 rooms nearby and 1 is much bigger. We go into the big room only to find that the only exit is out of reach and high above us. That's stupid... How would anyone get up there? We decide to go back and step into the small room this time. There's a pit in it that takes up most of the floor, we have to skirt the edges of the room. Scary.
      At the other side of the room we doing something that activates a trap I think, but also a door is opening to our right which leads into the big room. I instantly realize that this is what we're supposed to do, I grab Daniel by the arm and we run into the big room. There's a line that's descended from the opening in the ceiling, and the platform beneath is rising. We have to sprint to jump on or we'll get trapped (or something.. probably?). We jump onto the rope and climb our way up. As we near the top, we reach onto the edges to pull ourselves up, 2 sides have metal bars on them to make climbing up easier. The reason they were there was because the material used to make the edges was some poor quality plaster style like something from the early 1900s. I notice the ledge cracking and had to switch to a ledge with a bar.. Phew, that could have ended badly. Though I felt I would have been fine if I had fallen. I climbed up and we're ecstatic to have made it the room we're in is white and pristine looking (still not noticing the scene change) we run to the room on the left and then back, then to the room on the right. I'm pretty sure we made a huge mess and I told Dan that we should come back and clean it up otherwise the guy in the room lifting weights might get mad. He might be a 'gatekeeper' or something. When we went back to the room I remember there being something to do with a spider though... It was an extremely poisonous transparent white spider that somehow managed to get on me and I freaked out and woke up. I then decided to thrash around and squash any potentially real spiders that may have been crawling on me

      Dream fragment
      Also another dream which I can't be bothered writing up completely... Basically my face got all fucked up and disfigured, it's the most grotesque thing I've ever seen in my life. It was REALLY bad. I look in the mirror and my face had like, scrunched up.. And it had become severely pockmarked and had acne EVERYWHERE. I touched my face and it felt all crusty, and then the pimples would just explode, profusely spewing puss onto the mirror. ... I remember thinking "what the... when, HOW did this happen?" and then proceeded to just pop and pop and pop. Trying to fix my face... God it was so disgusting.
      It was a good dream up until that part, I had been working on some project with school mates and there had been cute girls and stuff.

      I had to check the mirror this morning and make sure that I didn't have any acne or pockmarks . Now that I think about it, my dreams had terrible endings last night :/

    4. 151015: Pieces of Machines and Dreams

      by , 10-15-2015 at 11:15 AM (The Dream Journal)
      Dream 1: Forbidden Rat Trap
      I'm outside and the sun is out, it looks like a late summer or earlier autumn afternoon. It's an open space with some trees out further behind me: I'm on a rock and the flatness stretches forward below me. There is a fenced area on the rocks. I'm with a bunch of young guys and we all try to get over the chainlink fence, there is something in the center of the restricted area we all want to see. I'm able to climb over it with a fair amount of ease after looking at it for some time. Of the around 15 people only two or three can't make it over the fence right away. We look at the thing on the ground, some kind of weird mechanical device.

      We hear people coming and everyone jumps and climbs the fence. I'm able to get over quickly but see that two people can't climb the fence and escape, they're stuck in the enclosed area. I know I can run and dart into the woods like everyone else but I stay, I can't leave these guys behind. A bunch of middle-aged guys come there, fat and mustached, they look pretty ragged, and ask us what the hell we're doing. I nervously say we were interested in the device in the area and nothing more.

      We enter the enclosed space and look at the device. They are about to show one of the guys how to repair it. I quickly take a place by them to see how it's done. It turns out to be a rat trap a long line of wire comes out that is kept mechanically in place with a kind of clip. The rat eats the wire and it triggers a spring that breaks its neck.

      Dream 2: Going to Beat Up a Robot
      I'm in a machine shop with a teacher. He is taking apart a fairly complex machine with many gears and moving parts, I see he is looking at some drawings that have the complex assembly laid out, it is drawn in a dark, shadowy ink like something from Warhammer 40K. His intention is to fix a part that has worn down in it. I look around the small machine shop, it looks like a classroom, the large lathes and milling machines take up most of the space. Students are there also doing work with the machines. I try to get a peak at the drawing and machine the teacher is working on. There is a female student there as well looking at it. He mentions a few pieces need to be repaired and re-machined. I say I want the hardest one to fix, it better my skills. I hope he chooses me.

      There is a robot in the class, is it the programming for the CNC lathe? I only know it is menacing and needs to be defeated. I ask it how to make a mech exoskeleton, as if I was working for it. It says there is a suit in the back room. I enter teh dark, cluttered room and I see an exoskeleton like in Aliens. I see what need to be repaired but it looks of. I jump in and strap myself into it, There is little protection for my body but my legs and arms now control large hydraulic lifts.

      I walk into my class, ready for anything. I see a classmate is also wearing a suit, we fistbump our large metallic fists together. Walking down the class, the robot is gone.

      Dream 3: A Mysterious Machine and a Metro Tunnel
      After not finding the robot I join the rest of my class to a dark, windowless and cramped storage area. There is a caged area to our left. The teacher opens it. There is something there that is mysterious and odd, as if I can't make it out as it is so alien to normal life. I'm not sure if this is the impression I had in the dream or if it's just that I don't remember what it was. I get the sense that is was a mechanical device of some kind, but it was special, unique and weird. Were we to repair it or admire it?

      I leave and go to another class. I knock on the door and my old class is there, they are all by computers. Delicate white sunlight comes from the slightly shaded windows to the left. The computer classroom is also very cramped. Everyone is happy to see me, there are smiles and greetings. Everything is very vivid. I try to see if I can get a computer from somewhere and quietly work on my stuff. The small class has no computers free. A few students I know smile and ask how I'm doing.

      I'm in the central metro station. It feels like it's morning, many of the kiosks are not open. I walk around, I'm in a three piece suit. I see my dark reflection in a plexiglass window. This is just like my dream a few nights ago, I think to myself. (!) I see others from my class. They are also in suits and dresses, is this some kind of graduation event? Who or what are we all waiting for? I break from the rest of my class to see if there is a good place to put a sticker down, that way I can see it next time I'm here and realize I'm dreaming. (!!) I think of the metro area in the game Yume Nikki.
    5. My brother's forest

      by , 01-15-2014 at 10:32 PM
      There's this guy running from some gang. It's about the patent for something he invented. He can't believe his invention is something anyone would be willing to kill him over, but I remind him it's not the invention they want to kill him over, it's the money. He's got some legal document - not the patent itself, but related to it, possibly he hasn't filed for it yet - which is what everyone's after, and after I get him to reveal it to me, a man who is my brother appears and snatches both the guy and the document away and runs into the forest, just as the gang catches up to us. This was our plan, the woods are my brother's territory. I act like I'm on the gang's side, or at least as if I want to catch that guy as much as they do - they were already aware from past interactions that I have an interest in the guy with the patent, and they've assumed I want the document for my own reasons. So they follow me when I lead the chase into the forest, into my brother's traps.

      The path into the forest that I lead them on - and which my brother appears to be on, we catch glimpses of him now and then, though I'm aware he won't stick to the path - curves back and forth in strange ways, it's disorienting. I see an odd bullet coming - dark green like a beetle's wing - and I make sure I'm out of its path, that it picks off one of the gang as intended. It was fired by one of three men who work for/with my brother, people I know well. Time seems to have slowed down, and when one of the gang starts grumbling about the strangeness of it, a man emerges from the woods, the second of my brother's men. He explains that it's the insect-birds. They're insects which mimic birds and sing constantly, disorienting the birds and causing them to mistake night for day, and for us, creating an illusion of time slowing. They prevent violence being done in my brother's forest. But "their element is in possessing one," he says; that is, the insect enters and controls a single bird.
    6. 8th Oct 2013 Confusing doom level, Saving a dragon

      by , 10-09-2013 at 12:08 AM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream 1(fragments):

      I was in some video game and there was something about villages and then we were traveling long distances through skies and found some leader dude and then there was something about HoMM3.

      Dream 2:

      I was playing doom, deathmatch vs some people and for it i've specially found pretty confusing level with alot of traps including many player activated ones. The level was split into two parts, bottom part with most rooms and player spawns and top part with switches, i was in top part. I was activating traps while everyone was fighting and then one of opponents have found me. I've used minigun and he was waaaaay too tough for some reason, at the same time i managed to dodge all his attacks and used shadows to confuse him, but then i accidentally fell to bottom part. I started running around and picking stuff up and there were mostly soulspheres, megaspheres and turbospheres, which looked different.
      After some time teleporters activated and i've tried to use them to get back to top, but they were pretty confusing to navigate, i also was using minigun and supershotgun to get a few frags. Then i've remembered about some switch that can summon cyberdemons to the map but at the same time someone used one of trap switches which spammed the level with generic female characters that were not doing anything other than getting in the way of player attacks. Server started lagging so i used cleanup command then after some teleport navigation i was in some completely different place and i was trying to find way out.

      Dream 3:

      I was reading some kind of creature list and i was kind of watching as group of people with artifact weapons were trying to attack someone. Then i've found out that they were attacking a dragon and she had passive innate power due to which everyone was seeing her as different kind of creature, often scary for whoever was seeing, and only i was apparently able to see her true form of a dragon of light-blue color. Then i felt her pain, i focused my will and broke people's weapons apart with it(non-lucid dream control?), then dream faded out.
    7. 10th Sep 2013 Fragments

      by , 09-10-2013 at 11:04 PM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream 1(fragments):

      I was playing some video game where i was going through a number of passageways, some were filled with sand, then i was also talking to someone about dragons.

      Dream 2(fragments):

      I was playing Spiral Knights and there was one room full of spike traps, i was playing with a group of people and we were discussing something about shields, armor and 'newly added' claw weapons.
    8. 4th Sep 2013 School, Video games and Boss fights

      by , 09-05-2013 at 01:40 AM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Sleeping schedule, where are you. First dream was fairly long.

      Dream 1(fragments):

      I was apparently at school and there was some kind of test going on about which i didn't cared. Then there was something about languages and the fact that i have used english everywhere, then i was talking to some people and there was something about some small red mech things. After that i was wandering around through some other rooms.

      Dream 2(fragments):

      I was playing some multiplayer platformer with some people and we were going through some metallic place full of traps and fighting some robot things. We had jetpacks and at some point there was something about falling down invisible stairs.

      Dream 3(fragments):

      I was browsing some illustrated forum game and then joining it, there were three other players and we were entering some building owned by some organization and then our team had to split up a few times and three of us had to fight some humanoid robots and one of them was one of organization's leaders. The fights were done like in RtD and we had lots of potions.

      Dream 4:

      I was playing some game that was made around shmup creation and it was multiplayer. At first i was trying to figure out how to make stuff and there was some coding involved and i have created some simple boss fight. I've been looking through some other creations and fought some grey spaceship-style boss, and then later i joined someone and she decided to show me some other creation which apparently was 3D boss fight. It was kinda chase, spaceship-like playership vs tank-like boss, on the road. At first tank spammed waves of weak enemies in lines while i had to get close enough to be able to attack him, they died in one hid but there were hordes of them and they all flied parallel. Soon second phase started where tank attacked with aimed shots from his cannon and was speeding around trying to ram my ship, at which he almost succeeded at one point, but as i was shooting him the phase went down quickly. Third phase he fired his main cannon which was some kind of huge homing laser, but i point-blank'ed it after it fired and destroyed the phase in seconds.
    9. 1st Aug 2013 Fragments

      by , 08-01-2013 at 11:05 PM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream 1(fragment):

      I had to travel between various villages and cities in search for something, i was really quick.

      Dream 2(fragments):

      I was in some video game and i traveled to the past version of some village, there were metallic houses and some engineer that was making some weird cube item, i had to help him. Also there was some annoying system of points.

      Dream 3(fragments):

      I was in some video game where i had to go through some complex with group of people and avoid various traps. There was one tricky trap that had timing problems.

      Dream 4(fragment):

      I was at home, looking outside, weather was changing rapidly.
    10. 2nd Apr 2013 A challenge, Weird game, Graveyard donation?

      by , 04-02-2013 at 04:08 AM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream recall from today's naps.

      Nap #1(fragment):

      Can't recall much, but there was something related to plants.

      Nap #2:
      Dream 1(fragment):

      There was some kind of challenge where one should manage to go through a bunch of various traps on platforms over the spike pit. Judge, me, and some other dude were on the side of the pit. Dude was about to jump but the judge stopped him and said that he's disqualified, when he asked why, judge said that's because he was partly a dragon apparently, and that's not allowed. Dude was disappointed and left. I was the next to do it and i got some kind of list with rules and it was indeed saying that nothing dragon related was allowed. I was annoyed and i became lucid from that somehow, realizing that i am dreaming, i activate my wings and feel them, i want to look at them but my field of view gets all weird, i do an flip in the air towards the judge and then yell "So what now?", 'What you do now?". He stares at me like an NPC who is not programmed to do something in that situation. Shortly my field of view gets even weirder and dream fades out.
      I wake up but the room is different, though before i can do anything i wake up for real.
      I decide to try DEILDing from there but i drop into unconsciousness.

      Dream 2(fragments):

      I was playing some kind of game where i controlled some cartoonish character, there ere a number of levels coming along the huge zeppelin of come company, then later there was cartoonish child that had to be escorted through levels. Then finally there was a level on the Zeppelin itself, there was another child that was enemy and he tried to confuse me about which child is correct, he was successful and i attacked wrong one, it went berserk and was all red, and was attacking back like crazy, as result character that i was controlling fell from the Zeppelin, on the ground i eventually found the correct child and finished the mission. Dream skips.
      I was near some house that was built in the center of graveyard, there were lots of policemen and i apparently didn't wanted to be caught or something. There was also one friendly policewoman, i explained something to her and she helped me to get through. On the graveyard, i started dropping tons of money all over the place, while saying something about donation( ). Everyone started collecting it and then dream ended.
    11. 21st Feb 2013 Controlling the Traps, Inventory Management, Attacking the Base

      by , 02-21-2013 at 08:47 PM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream 1(fragment):

      I recall something about headache...

      Dream 2(fragment):

      I recall something about some kind of book

      Dream 3:

      There was some area that i was exploring with some people that were some of my classmates from the past and some cartoonish characters. The area itself was grey, industrial-looking. At certain points the view was switching to another myself who was apparently switching traps on, so i guess i was the creator of this place or something. There was one moment where people had to jump down the tube to the floor below and at the point most of people were falling thru the tube i switched to the trap-controlling myself and activated the switch that removed the floor and exposed lava below it, thus screwing most of people up. Though some found a way around that, i especially recall someone summoning some sort of plane.
      Later on i came to the end of area with the bunch of people who were survived, and we were apparently about to attack the enemy base. I had some time to select weapons and equipment and when i opened my inventory it was full of stuff. There were weapons, ammo, power items, though the only items i can recall in detail were the white assault rifle, which i had a few exemplars of for some reason(maybe picked up from people who died to traps earlier on?), so i had to drop some of them to clean up the inventory, and also there were two red battery things that according to tooltip added '10% defense' per one when added to upgrade slots, which i had 5 of, i decided to use both of them along with 3 other upgrade items. Also it was confusing to clean up the inventory because i had some slots having only a single bullet in them, and those bullets were for weapons that i did'nt even had...
      Either way we went to attack the enemy base, but my recall goes downhill at this point, for the most part i recall that i was mostly shooting the enemies with the white assault rifle, which was shooting slow white projectiles. Later on i was talking to some mechanical transforming thing(i am not sure but it may have been 'Ice Element') and suddenly music of my IWL alarm started playing and there was credits roll synced to that music somehow. Dream ended shortly.
    12. Hallway Traps 06/13/11

      by , 07-13-2011 at 07:02 PM
      3:43 AM

      Working in a wide hallway with childhood friend Thad. Note: Thad is now working at an automation company I currently interviewed at. Our task was to take a rolling cart down the hallway. Note: The rolling cart is just like the ones that we used to roll around large machines around at my last job. They are made out of steal beams and large casters. they stand about 1.5' off the ground. Anyway the hallway has a simple yet frustrating set of traps. There are two large gates about 1' apart, then a large area with spikes coming up out of the floor, then two more gates. The gates are times so that as on comes up a little the other one closes and visa versa. We settles on taking either side and going for it. For some reason I used a couple pillow to help me slide underneath. We made it to the other side so we could stand up. the spikes couldn't reach the cart. John an old restaurant owner where I used to work was there and he was our foreman. Behind the next to gates was pitch black, maybe a wall.
    13. 7/7 Bathroom Dungeon

      by , 07-11-2011 at 07:21 AM (Link's Adventures)
      This dream was a few days ago so I don't remember the exact date although I believe it was the 7th. And I can't seem to ever get myself to write down my dreams when I wake up, so I'm gonna try recording it on my phone so all I will have to do is speak then and I can write it down later.

      So I was in a big courtyard, and I head toward this giant glass building that looked like a greenhouse. You couldn't see through the glass at all though and when I entered inside, it was a giant bathroom? This doesn't bother me at all though, and on the inside, the walls were all tiled, but the roof was made of glass(which you still couldn't look through).

      I apparently knew what I was doing though, cause I head toward this small golden thing(I think it was a key) in a cage near the entrance while dodging the traps set up. I then pull out this small hand key(It was silver and looked like a hand at the end, but there were points on the end of the fingertips and the fingers were completely smooth). I align the points of the handkey to the holes on the side of the wall and unlock the cage and grab the key(which seems weird, a key to get a key?). Then I look at the key for a minute and I wake up while looking at it.
    14. 02/20/11 Spiders and shacks and traps... oh, my

      by , 02-21-2011 at 04:32 AM (New Dream Adventures of Raven Knight)
      Plans: I didn't have any special plans for the night, just to have some lucids and remember them. I am continuing to try to make myself do a RC every time I wake up, but I just never think of it… no matter how much I try to focus on it. I will keep trying, I'm not sure what else to do, though.

      Maze of Webs
      I am in the laundry room of our house, looking at the door that leads out onto the back porch. I look back into the kitchen and see that there is no one there, and I am glad there is no one there. I open the door and walk out onto the back porch, closing the door behind me. I almost head blindly down the steps to the carport, but I stop suddenly when I see there is a wall of cobwebs blocking my way. I shudder at the idea that I almost touched those cobwebs… there are spiders crawling all through the webs, they are big, about the size of golf balls. This scares me, even though I am not normally scared of spiders in waking life. I turn to go down the back stairs, but to do that I have to cross the entire porch… which is covered in more cobwebs, walls of cobwebs, everything is covered with cobwebs… and more of those huge spiders. I am momentarily scared into not moving at all, then I snap out of that and I look to the door I just came out of. I go to open the door, but I stop as I see the spiders have already covered the knob with more cobwebs. I need a stick of some kind to pull cobwebs out of the way so I can get out of there… I look around to try to find a long stick, at first I think there is none, but I finally find one. I pick it up, moving carefully to avoid touching any cobwebs or spiders, and use it to scrape the cobwebs away from the doorknob. The cobwebs come easily away from the doorknob, but now there are spiders crawling on the stick towards me… I throw the stick aside and grab at the knob… but it's locked… and I'm out there surrounded by cobwebs…

      Real Life Models
      I am in the yard outside of our house. I am designing a small building, designing it in a 3D modeling software, and the building is forming itself right here in front of me. It turns out that there is someone there building the shed as I am directing. We continue designing the building, which is going to be a part of a new game I am working on, and soon it is finished. I go into the house because I need to get something, though I don't remember what that something was because I go back outside without it. I look at the shed, the man who has been helping me says everything is all done. This isn't good… I am upset with him, I tell him he shouldn't have converted the structure into an editable poly until after I unwrap the UVW map and add the textures to it. He says I need to calm down, there is nothing wrong. I say that there is something wrong, I won't be able to add a texture to the shed now… it will all be the same dull color, which will make it unusable. He says no, all I need to do is add the new modifier to it… then add whatever textures and colors I want. I stand there for a minute, then I realize he is right, I shouldn't have gotten upset.

      Note: An editable poly is a format for 3D objects in 3D modeling software such as 3DS Max, the one I use. UVW unwrapping and a UVW map is a process used by 3DS Max or other software to place the colors and patterns in the proper places on that object… such as coloring most of a door brown for wood and then making the knob silver.

      Death Maze
      I am with a group of people and we are on the run, there are others chasing after us. The people after us are part of the mob or drug dealers or something like that, they are after us because we stole their money. We go into an old abandoned subway system in an attempt to escape our pursuers. We are going through the passages when one of the people I'm with finds a hidden passage, it had not even been visible from a distance. We get inside and head down one of the passages, but we come to a dead end… that's not good… had the entrance closed behind us? No… it hadn't. We head back for the entrance but the people after us are blocking the way, they are standing just inside the passage. Now the entrance slides closed… a lot of good that does now. One of the thugs is trying to figure out how to open the exit, the others are threatening to kill my associates and me. They are pointing guns at us, saying to hand over their money or die. We don't have the money with us. They're going to kill us all? One if them looks like he is about to fire… but he doesn't… and blood starts coming from his mouth… I look and see that a bunch of needle thin spikes are coming from the floor… and all of the thugs have been impaled. The passage is now turning, it is really disorienting… it is rotating around until it looks like we're standing on the wall and the floor is somehow up above us… the ceiling is off to the right… blades come from the walls and are cutting anything and anyone in their path… one of the men with me is caught by surprise… the blade shreds off about an inch from his back… he falls to the ground screaming in pain… the next blade removes his head. The rest of us run down the passage in the other direction, but it's a dead end… I have no idea how we are supposed to get out.
