A lush and stinking amber place of trees and eyed vines and orchids twining round mirror-frames.
Unlocked with one of:
- A mahogany-framed mirror
- Nightmares 8 and 1 x Memory of Light
- Nightmares 8 and Having Recurring Dreams: Is Someone There? 10
Main Quality: Nightmares
Music: Irrigo Below
A waking dream - memories of light or A waking dream - is someone there?
A hot, orange sun hovering low in a real sky. Tangles of green foliage and the sounds of nature; little tickings and chirpings. Here and there, though, are man-made shapes and shiny surfaces; straight lines and right angles - empty frames.
- You have moved to a new area: The Mirror-Marches
A familiar darkness
You look away from your reflection in the mirror, to the familiar darkness of the Neath above and around you. Where have you been? Lost for a moment in a reverie, watching yourself in the mirror? […] You struggle to remember the details.
- You have moved to a new area: your Lodgings
- You've lost 1 x Memory of Light
- Having Recurring Dreams: Is Someone There? is dropping… (-10 CP)
- Wounds is increasing… (+1 CP)
Note that you can leave the Mirror Marches either by reducing Nightmares to zero, whereupon A familiar darkness is triggered; or Step through the mirror in the A familiar scene? storylet. The former costs less in actions and dreams loss, but returning to sanity from the state of some confusion is much more perilous overall.
