Dreams are about processing the day’s interactions as memories are sorted away… is something people say about dreams but which I firmly believe is total BS. If that was the case, why does anyone dream about anything other than the stuff they did that day? Why have I dreamed, multiple times I might add, about walking around the halls of my high school, which wasn’t actually my high school, (but I had that dream knowledge that it was) except instead of lockers, there were glass tanks up and down the walls filled with skinned things. Maybe they were students, maybe they were mutant experiments, the dream knowledge didn’t say. And before you’re like, wow that’s a crazy nightmare – it wasn’t a nightmare. I wasn’t scared in it. I thought it was rad, not because I’m some secret psychopath, but because it was like walking around the set if someone made a live action Splatterhouse movie.

Or, why did I dream about meeting April Ludgate (from Parks and Rec) – not Aubrey Plaza, mind you, but April Ludgate, at a convention, and I told her that when she got married, instead of changing her last name to Ludgate-Dwyer, she should have portmanteaued her last name to LudWire, then tell people that a LudWire is the proper name for a clothes hanger when it’s in abortion configuration, and she said “Oh my god, that’s awesome, babe!”

She said “babe” because she started the sentence talking to me, but finished the sentence talking to Andy, who wasn’t there, because dreams are random nonsense. They have no meaning. Anyone who tells you otherwise is either trying to write a book, or has read a book, or let’s be real, a Facebook post, and is trying to make “knowing things about dreams” part of their personality.

By the way, whenever I dream about going to a convention, which seems to happen about 3-5 times a year, I’m always there on Sunday while all the vendors are breaking down their booths and I realized I’ve missed the convention and everyone I wanted to see. I guess it’s a variation on the “have a test for a class I’ve never attended” dream, which I’ve also had, but thankfully less than the convention dream.

The new vote incentive is up! This is a bit of a weird one as it’s a character that hasn’t appeared in the comic.

It’s my Ifrit Pathfinder 1e monk, Fray! Ifrits don’t really make great monks in Pathfinder, as player characters they get a +2 to Dex and Cha, but -2 to Wis. For monks, Dex is good, Cha is largely irrelevant, but Wis is important as it can add to your AC and also has something to do with Ki points I think. But I didn’t care. I wanted a character with dark blue/gray skin and glowing orange hair, so that’s what I picked. (I don’t think Ifrit even really have dark skin, so maybe she’s 1/4 Drow? Don’t care. I think she looks cool.) Will she show up in the comic? I mean… maybe? Probably in a Dabbler flashback, but who knows?

As usual, Patreon has her in delicto flagrante.
