Lucid Dreams Long Play

James, Spence, Peter Bryant, Mary Lindholm, and Steven Wollett went to TotalCon and played Andre Kruppa's game Lucid Dreams. Lucid Dreams is a d10 pool system geared toward the darker, grittier aspects of roleplaying. It has no particular setting, but is designed to handle anything from the Stone Age all the way to near-future settings. Popular settings such as the world of H.P. Lovecraft will port easily into this game system. Lucid Dreams is meant to be fast paced and focused on the story.

Overall the game has a similar feel to the original role-playing game, but there are a number of differences.
