A tour of the enchanted woods and countrysides of the dreamlands realm, around the river Skai, in the Six Kingdoms.

Three cities are covered in varying levels of detail: Nir, Ulthar, and Dylath-Leen.

One new creature type: the zoogs, with approximate stats.

Two gods are briefly mentioned: Azathoth and Nyarlathotep.

Priests of Nasht and Kaman-Thah maintain a cavern-temple and a pillar of flamethe, where they offer assistance to travellers on their ways to the dreamland realm.

One new potion: moon-tree wine, a zoog delicacy, served in a gourd. The wine is produced from a magical tree that grew from a seed dropped by someone on the moon. Like many wines, it is known to induce intoxication and drowsiness.

There is much more to cover, but this is a good introduction to the dreamlands. We will definitely be returning later.
