|Not all Dream Invaders|
Even to those in Fianyarr who are lucid dreamers, the dreamscape is that part of us that is most intimate and yet which can never be fully protected. To have one's dreams violated is a terrible experience and thus many superstitious talismans are created and sold in fantasy markets everywhere to aid in such protections. Yet the likelihood of so many of those talismans working are quite slim. But enough about that, let's talk about the dream invaders themselves....
Creating a Dream Invader
There are those Angelics who help protect people within their very dreams inside the dreamscape. The tennin are on such example as they consider themselves to be guardians of dreams. These unnaturally beautiful women always appear dressed in colorful and ornate kimonos, incredibly well-designed jewelry, and long decorated scarves. They are generally seen carrying either a lotus blossom (allows the carrier to pause a dream to speak with the dreamer at length for up to 5 minutes - this time cannot be interrupted by any other), a biwa (playing this instrument causes the dream to invert so that the victim enters the attacker's dream unless one of the targets succeeds on a Power + Occult + Wyrd roll versus the Tennin) or a flute (playing this instrument causes all listeners to regain a willpower point once per minute though they can't assault anyone during this time).

BakuThere are some Dream Invaders that actually devour dreams, both good and bad, and which are renowned for their ability to remove (likely by consuming) other Dream Invaders. This is a shy creature that appears to be a chimera with an elephant's head, tiger's paws and an ox's trunk.

Incubus / SuccubusThese rather famous Dream Invaders are blamed for all sorts of embarressing sex dreams though, alas, more often than not they are not involved. When they are involved, however, the individual loses willpower and slowly grows more obsessed with the pleasures of the flesh experienced in their dreams and desire to make those dreams a reality. This Dream Invader is referred to by the gender seen in the dream though, in truth, they usually don't favour one form or another.
