Choose A Focus
Your focus determines the kinds of arts you can learn. When you begin, you must choose one focus from the four elements. Once chosen, you cannot change. There are 4 Foci:
Known as GateKeepers, disciples can manipulate the fabric of dreams, altering the walls of thought to protect themselves and others from harmful evocations, even prevent or allow access to areas of the Dream City. GateKeepers are the warriors of the Dream City.
Known as DreamSeers, disciples see the true nature of the dreamstate, are able to slip invisibly into its embrace, and have an intuitive understanding of Talismans. DreamSeers are the scholars of the Dream City.
Known as SoulMasters, disciples can transmute essence, the substance all inhabitants of Underlight form to shield their souls, and use this power to help or harm others. SoulMasters are the protectors of the Dream City.
Known as FateSenders, disciples learn to directly change the experiences of others, and are able to alter the movement, sight, and essence of others. FateSenders are the tricksters of the Dream City.
There is another element known as DreamSoul. DreamSoul cannot be a focus. DreamSoul protects the souls of all dreamers from harm.
