The tutorial was so amazing well designed and easy to understand, but now after that I’m just not sure what to do?
Okay, first of all I will do the Awakening step of the wisdom card, that’s fine!
Then I have to place the Starting Slumber tiles (gained in the tutorial) and place them accordingly, with the Dreamers in one of the two starting places. The red Slumber cards get shuffled and the rest of the other „Slumber cards“ (the grey ones) too?? I don‘t fully understand the difference between those two types of cards. Red Slumber (with the name on the back) and „other slumber cards..? :(
Then, if I‘m instructed to draw a slumber card (I guess from the „Red ones“) I resolve it and if its an Entety, I switch To the Two Starting Sluber cards on the Dreamscape board and resolve the encounter?
And how does the “other“ Slumber cards come into plays (the grey ones), which expand the Dreamscape map??) Sorry, but I really don‘t understand it :(
Next are the Dreamgate tiles. Do I understand this correct, I collect them in one of the envelopes provided and can enter one of them as I wish. As far as I meet the requirements (keys, right location etc.)
If I enter one of the dreams, I get rid of the slumber map and replace it with the Dream?
And then after the dream, I put the two Slumber Starting tiles on the Dreamscape again??
And in the Secret Scripts on page 10, entry 200 there is an error: Add tile II-32 F (Nightmare Janitor) to the Slumber deck. Because such a card does not exist, I guess this is a misspelling and you mean II-37 F !! :)
So now, I‘ve played my first game after the tutorial and a few questions came up!
1) Is it correct that the first four Slumber cards are repeating over and over again..? (after resolving the card I put it at the bottom of the Slumber cards) So the same one enemy is coming over and over again? :(
2) To gain two keys to enter my first dream I have to go to the same locations over and over again (running in circles on the Dreamworld Map, because there is only one location where I can get a key..?) So I have to get there twice to get two keys..?
3) Is the influence market deck all cards in the box? And I draw them from the top if I want to purchase them with a Note?
4) In the beginning there are no available market cards, is this correct?
Its so confusing, because the game is a bit boring at this point, because there is not much happening and to do! It’s always the same in Slumber.. :(
Thanks a lot! I was already blown away from the tutorial and I’m so exited to play the game! It’s just awesome and I want to play it right! :) So, thanks for the help :)
Wow, that was fast :) Thanks a lot for the clarification
So those two Slumber Starting tiles are alway on the board, if I‘m not actually in a Dream? So every Slumber starts from here and is therefore identical (besides the changing Entitys)?
Everything you said was correct! :p
The red slumber tiles are Slumbers - typically entities that you encounter on the slumber map. The grey ones are slumber *map* tiles. Some Fate cards ask you to draw and place a slumber map tile.
Beyond that...you got it all right. Travel around the dreamworld, gathering keys and resolving slumbers, until you meet the requirements to enter a dream gate. Then enter a dream gate (at the green swirl on the correct section of the dreamworld), discard the slumber map, and follow the dream gate's setup instructions.
