I dreamed about Medievia last night. I’m not kidding.

I can’t believe I’m still dreaming about this dumb game. Way too many cycles spent there, that’s for sure. However, I was much relieved that I didn’t dream flashes of colored text on a monitor like I used to when I played all the time. Almost everyone in the dream was present in the flesh (RL as they say). So I dreamed I had this friend who had participated in some special campaign that Medievia had done, where there were these arcade style kiosks scattered around the country(?). You went to these kiosks and basically played against this wizard/fortune-teller figure behind glass (though sometimes on a screen) like in the movie Big . After you won your session against the fortune-teller or whatever, the figure handed you a real physical object, and then at the same time your character on the game got that object in his inventory. The guy who was my friend was the guy responsible for keeping track of when people got physical objects and making sure the game selves got the corresponding objects.

Only this campaign had closed, it had only lasted some (3?) months, as a way to generate interest in the game. So there was this big party at the house of the guy who runs Medievia, who is actually called Mike but who in my dream was called Alan for some reason. And his online persona is named Vryce but in my dream it was Valdo (when I told my husband this part he went for the oh so obvious “Vere’s Valdo” joke. I laughed.) For some reason I was also going to this party. When we got there it was crowded with people, most of them guys. I think I may have been a guy, or at least been genderless. So Valdo/Alan was behaving really salaciously, and kept having very public sexual encounters with other men there, basically just selecting people who were expected to comply with his lustful whims. It was really vulgar and offputting. I was outraged that all these young guys were letting themselves be used so overtly just to get advantages on the game.

I am so tempted to add commentary to this dream, because boy could I analyze and embellish, but that’s kind of against the rules I set for myself, so I’ll just let it go….but there’s quite a bit I could say, you know, if I were so inclined…

I wouldn’t ever let Valdo touch me, not for all the dc’s in the world

I’m really embarrased on your behalf. Don’t worry, I’m embarrassed for myself too–I did log in like under a month ago.

My med dreams always involve TR or eggs. I blame Sevli and Adena. Sometimes I dream about rooms with "your looking at…" written on the walls. For THAT I blame Elaine.
