Recalling a Dream of Other Places [spoilers?]

Forgive me if this subject has already been opened; I could not place it at a cursory glance. But while on Ladybones Road, I noted the infernal graffiti under the arch at Moloch Station for the first time … since I came to Fallen London, truly. I gleaned some interesting tidbits about recent promotions and demotions in the hierarchies of Hell, as per usual, and then I heard a voice …

Something else will happen soon… don’t worry. All shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.[/quote]

What on earth – or beneath – could this mean?

ETA: And then, by some strange chance, an Infernal Sommelier commented upon a Brilliant Soul I had been carrying –

‘Oh, this is a very old one. From before my time. A hermit of some sort. Time hasn’t touched her optimism at all. She still thinks that things will be well. You can almost feel the sunlight.’[/quote]

I suspect it to be Julian of Norwich.

If you are of the same habit as me in regards to dreams then you might want to check your messages in case you were awake or aware enough to write it down.

I often write down my own but there are times i forget to look at my papers

Thank you – I think I did write something. Something about a garden, or a vineyard, or serpents …

I was just about to ask about this. Quite unsettling, really…

I have some interesting theories here. Some of these theories delve into the technical. I will, therefore, be hiding them all for those who do not wish to see them.

SPOILERS:
[color=#ffffff]These are dreams of /other/ places. When the dream journal option that appears in messages is clicked upon… it reloads the entire site. Why? Nothing else does this, going to nowhere else does this. This is some new functionality for a feature that, I suspect, doesn’t quite exist yet. This even works for the lowliest, newest of new characters.[/color]
[color=#ffffff]
[/color]
[color=#ffffff]Afterwards, in my Recent Events, this is posted: [/color][color=#ffffff](18 minutes ago) IN FALLEN LONDON: I have had the strangest dream…[/color]
[color=#ffffff]
[/color]

[color=#ffffff]…why does it need to specify ‘IN FALLEN LONDON’ if there is not /somewhere else that it could occur/?[/color]
[color=#ffffff]
[/color]
[color=#ffffff]My wild theory is thusly: Soon there will be other places. Perhaps other games entirely, interconnected through the events box and other means.[/color]
[color=#ffffff]
[/color]
[color=#ffffff]Something is coming, my friends. And knowing these people… something /delicious/.[/color]

What dream journal button?

As I told theodor_gylden, a short while after you check that grafitti a message will appear under the messages tab regarding the dream

I actually thought it was a glitch and didn’t even try the action O_o Now I’m on the badwagon too!

EDIT: A proposal: being a new thing and not present on any wiki - why don’t we accord to peruse a different path each, and then tell the results, so to have a chart ov every option? I personally like SPOILER [color=rgb(255, 255, 255)]the Garden one and the Serpents one[/color] SPOILER

"Watchful has increased to 103!"

Why thank you, Dream Journal.

With what choice, if I may?

Serpents. Can this be duplicated by others (or myself? I’m going to try again)? More importantly… is it supposed to do that?! I’m generally not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, but then again this seems rather… gamebreakertastic…

OK, gonna try the Sky…

EDIT: I went for the Vineyard. It gave me [color=rgb(255, 255, 255)]Eyes of Icarus, passed Watchful from 76 to 78 and one Vision of the Surface.[/color]

Egads. I just tried Vineyard as well and went from 103 to 105.

I’ve tried each option once, so it’s time to cycle through again and see if the huge jumps are a one-time thing or not… Hmm ponders and then proceeds to experiment on self

…You can do it more than once? Seems a bit too much of a boon _

Hrmm. I’ve been waiting for a third message a good hour or more. It’s rather frustrating.

just to check something, when one of you got one of the new story quirks by choosing a dream, did you get it at 1 or 5

Have you tried refreshing? I recieved all three messages within fifteen minutes of storyline completion… (However, I’m still waiting to see if a number four will appear or not) Or perhaps it’s random and I’m incredibly lucky.

Got Icarus at five. Fingerwork increased from one to six. Gates of the Garden increased to eight, but I can’t recall what it was before (I gained some when seeing the Rose for the second time; I believe I might have gained it at five that time, so it increased by three? Or maybe eight is just the number it maxes out at.)

Yeah, I’ve been refreshing for the duration. I’m wondering if something’s up, because the other two arrived almost instantly. I even got an email saying it should be there… an hour ago…

I didn’t have Eyes of Icarus and it went to five; I had Gates of the Garden 5 and it went to 8.
