Game and Story Use

  • Nightmares are a perfect device for making player characters (and thus, their players) nervous. They allow the GM to inflict emotional harm on defenseless characters in an acceptable way (since people aren't generally in control of their dreams anyway), without harming them physically (where making the characters defenseless without good reason is generally resented).
