A quote or poem from the opening of the 1999 role-playing video game Chrono Cross:

What was the start of all this?

When did the cogs of fate begin to turn?

Perhaps it is impossible to grasp that answer now,

From deep within the flow of time…

But, for a certainty, back then,

We loved so many, yet hated so much,

We hurt others and were hurt ourselves…

Yet even then we ran like the wind,

Whilst our laughter echoed,

Under cerulean skies…

Being Called To The Stand As A Witness | Knights Talking? | Returning To A Massively Multiplayer Virtual Reality Role-playing Video Game?

Dream 1

This dream involved an accusation and dispute about / of someone saying and / or doing something that possibly involved the George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush.

There was a trial-like situation going on involving this dispute / accusation, and I was possibly one of several people called up to the stand as witnesses to be questioned / interrogated by maybe one or more lawyers.

The male lawyer with light-color skin wearing a suit who questioned / interrogated me did a good job trying to get me to doubt myself and what I possibly heard and saw, and he was so good at this that I really started to doubt myself.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

This dream involved some knight-like characters from maybe the anime television show Overlord talking about maybe some accusations / rumors made about them, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 3

This dream was also inspired by the anime television show Overlord, and this dream involved some characters returning to maybe a massively multiplayer virtual reality role-playing video game.

One or more of the characters were probably real people (probably just one of them), but the others were NPCs (non-player characters) who seemed to based on the friends of the real person or people who had just returned to the video game.

The NPCs seemed to be unstable and seemed like extreme versions of the real people they were based on, and they kept arguing with each other.

The real person started to figure out a way to stabilize them by switching between controlling the NPCs briefly and then talking to them about working together and doing other things to try to counter their extremeness, and this seemed to be working as the NPCs started to stabilize and they started to work together.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

The end,

A Dream Virtual Role-Playing Video Game?

I had more dreams that I remembered and there was more to this dream that I remembered, but I kept going back to sleep without recording my dreams so now I can only barely remember part of this dream.

This dream possibly somehow involved dreaming and a virtual reality role-playing video game, maybe somehow you could go into the video game through a dream within a dream, but I am not sure.

I just know that me and some other people went into a virtual reality role-playing video game dream world, the graphics possibly alternated between graphics like Chrono Trigger and more modern graphics and basically looking like the real world depending on the moment or situation or part of the video game dream world.

Our video game characters had different appearances and gear and armor and clothing and skills et cetera depending on our class I assume, but I have no idea what my character looked like or what class I had.

I remember us going inside a multi-story house that was like a larger and fictional version of my former male classmate SS’s parent’s house, and I remember us going to a second floor and we probably got attacked by some higher level NPC (non-player characters) and / or other players and maybe we died.

We possibly got kicked out of the video game and then maybe went back to sleep or whatever and returned to it, and then we returned to the house.

When we were on the upper floor again in a large room with a balcony some higher level NPCs and / or other players and possibly some summons and / or creatures found us, we were outnumbered and outmatched, and so the plan was to run to the balcony and jump off but some of our team decided to stay and fight oddly so the rest of us stopped and turned to join them instead of abandoning them even though we probably would lose.

I reminded my team that we did not have much of a chance because we were noobs (beginners) and they had us outnumbered and out-leveled and out-geared, but they wanted to still stay and fight oddly and their courage and stupidity inspired me to join in the fun for a good fight that we would probably lose but at least we would go down fighting against all odds.

To make things worse more NPCs and possibly some other players and more summons / creatures arrived to join our enemies, and so now we really did not stand a chance which possibly made the situation even more fun somewhat.

I started talking to our enemies to try to work out an agreement to level the playing field a bit so that this fight would be a bit more fair, and so that if we won that we would get a larger reward than usual.

I managed to get them to agree to fight us in waves instead of all at once, and I got them to agree to give us the house and maybe their gear and some other things if we won; I wanted them to give us their summons / creatures too, but they refused probably because it was a big advantage to them to be able to summon and / or have creatures with them to greatly increase their numbers et cetera.

A female character started talking to us, I remember someone in our group mentioning that the police in this video game were doing a terrible job, and various people on my team agreed and said why they felt this way.

Eventually the female character revealed that her and her team were part of the police force in this video game and that it was true that they have been struggling, but that they actually work hard even though it does not seem like it to us and that they have a very hard job.

I apologized and I felt like maybe we should offer to join or help them, but I woke up before I could talk about this with her and before our battle started.

The end,
