Last night I did not get out of bed to voice record my dreams and I suddenly woke up from this dream abruptly, and so I can not remember most of my dreams from last night except for barely part of the end of this dream.
There was more to this dream before and during this dream that I can not remember unfortunately, and so this dream will not make much sense because most of it is forgotten now.
There were several different things going on before and maybe during this dream, maybe different layers and/or perspectives to this dream or jumping between dreams or parts of the dream, and this part of the end of the dream possibly took place on another planet but that is just my wild assumption (guess).
This part of the dream was like a live action interactive movie (film) and video game combined with a dream, and it seemed to involve a maybe Viking-like group of assumed humans with primitive/old/ancient technology/weapons/armor/et cetera and some newer technology (I am not sure how new) trying to maybe settle on this planet in a small settlement that was possibly near water.
I am not sure if these assumed human settlers were originally from this planet or if they had just arrived, and they were being led by a maybe warrior-like woman with whitish-colored skin with long yellow hair.
Like a video game I had some control over this dream world, and the goal of this game/whatever was to defend the settlement from what I assumed to be tall muscular strong alien orc-like entities (humanoids) with probably primitive technology.
I am not sure if the alien orc-like entities were native to this planet or not or if they were settlers too, I just know that they kept attacking the assumed human settlers, and this was like a turn-based game where you only had a few seconds to prepare before each random attack.
You could spend those seconds preparing your fence/wall or arming and organizing your settlers or looking for randomly spawned items to help with the defense of your settlement or set traps or you could let the female leader handle things or you could maybe give a speech or you could do nothing or maybe you could share leadership with the female leader et cetera.
I remember playing/going through several turns helping defend the settlement, I tried different approaches and I even let the female leader lead sometimes, and things were challenging and randomized to make each attack feel more unique and stressful.
The assumed humans had better technology than the alien orc-like entities it seemed, but the alien orc-like entities were big and strong and relentless and outnumbered the assumed humans.
I am not sure if I was allowed to directly participate (take part) or not, I do remember possibly physically being there or seeing things like I was there, and the female leader was a good and strong leader and warrior who really cared about her people.
The alien orc-like entities were slowly wearing us down even though we were successfully defending against them each turn, and the battles were pretty action-packed and realistic and interesting.
The assumed humans had probably traveled all of this way and did not want to leave, and so they were willing to defend for as long as they could before considering abandoning the settlement (I possibly talked with the female leader about this, but I can not remember).
I possibly became more involved and I wanted to get directly involved, I am not sure if I got to or not before waking up, and that is all that I can remember of this dream.
