Domain Power: Dreamscape

Caster may fall asleep at will (while sitting or prone). Once asleep the caster may send their consciousness into the Dreamscape, enabling them to sense the minds of sleeping targets within 100 yards of the channeller in the physical realm. With a successful search roll, the caster may find and target a specific mind. This provides contact for spells that otherwise require sight. If the dream caster has been within a target’s dreams in the past 24 hours, they will gain a +1/+2/+3 insight bonus to all casts against that target. The caster may awaken at will as a standard action. This will immediately sever contact with sleeping targets.

Unless otherwise specified,

  • Targets must be either be visually seen by the caster (line of sight may not be broken), or the caster must contact them through proximity in the Dreamscape.
  • There is no difference between a target being naturally asleep, magically asleep, or unconscious. The method by which the target has entered this state is not relevant.
  • The caster retains full powers during magically imposed sleep as if naturally asleep
  • The caster is unable to access powers if "asleep" due to being unconscious, such as being in negative health from lethal damage.
