Barely Winning A Total War-Like Battle | A Vampire (Vampirism) Virus Pandemic?

Dream 1

This dream took place inside a building in a somewhat narrow area with some shelves, some small old-style (swords, spears, shields, cavalry, et cetera) military-like force being led by a man were trying to escape, and some people were watching as I used a larger old-style military force of cavalry and spearmen (maybe with spears and shields, and maybe they were more hoplite-like but I can not remember) to stop the small military force from escaping.

This was like a battle from a Total War video game except it was taking place in the dream world and I was part of it so it seemed real but still felt somewhat video game-like because some people were watching me, but I was mostly just in command instead of fighting but I was on the battlefield with my soldiers.

I expected this to be a very short fight so I did not think that it was worth me fighting unless things went wrong, I got overconfident because I had a larger force, and it just appeared to be an easy quick win.

I was thrown into this situation suddenly without time to plan really, I wanted to split my soldiers into balanced groups but I did not feel that I had time, and before I could do anything the other army and their leader started to move quickly forcing me to act.

I did something that even I knew was risky but I was overconfident, which is not like me, and I sent all of my spearmen to attack the other army head on.

The leader of the other army was smart, he acted before I could, and he used the narrow space and the shelves to his advantage; and he had several different types of units instead of just spearmen like I sent at his army.

I made a stupid move that cost the lives of most of my spearmen by sending them all in like that, and then I ordered my spearmen to surround the other army but by then their numbers had dropped so I stretched them too thin.

They were having some success but my first command had ruined things, being stretched this thin allowed the leader and his army to eventually push through in some areas, and I made another stupid move by sending all of my cavalry to rush them except for one group that I left behind with me.

My cavalry were too close to get a good charge, the environment still favored the other army, and what was left of my own spearmen probably got in their way and my cavalry force probably was damaged by my own spearmen by accident.

It was some of the worst military blunders that I have ever made because I was making quick overconfident risky decisions, my larger force was now losing and was almost wiped out, but the other army was almost wiped out too.

The leader of the other army was still alive and him and the last of his army were finishing off or had finished off the rest of my army except for me and the cavalry group that I left behind, and the leader and his few soldiers were about to charge to escape through the opening to the hallway that me and the last of my cavalry were guarding.

I felt so stupid, I had failed my soldiers and most of them had died because of me, and so I ordered the last of my cavalry to charge and finish off the leader and his soldiers and I joined them.

They literally ran down the leader with their horses sending him flying, he probably died, and most of his soldiers were dead as I arrived after the first charge.

My soldiers were finishing off the last few survivors as we started checking the battlefield (which was just a room with shelves, they had entered from the other side, and we were guarding the other side which had a hallway with a path to the left and one to the right) for survivors and as I tried to locate the leaders body.

We won the battle but at a huge unnecessary cost, it was embarrassing, I should have listened to my instincts and my usual common sense and cautiousness.

I thought of how this battle could have gone much better with minimum losses, but I woke up.

Dream 2

Some of this dream is confusing because it seemed that it started at a hotel or apartment-like building that I was moving into, I was to get some roommates and / or suitemates, and so I was waiting on them to arrive.

We did not know how many or who would arrive, at least one showed up, and some kind of vampire (vampirism)-like virus was spreading around the world it seemed like some kind of pandemic; and so we were trying to survive.

I think that people were nicknaming the virus or whatever it was that because of some of the symptoms et cetera.

The news probably recommended staying indoors et cetera, and so that is what we were doing and we had some guns.

At some point in the dream we wanted to go outside because we probably needed to go get supplies et cetera, instead of being in a hotel or apartment we were in a small house in the city of D during the day along the road to The BB Grocery Store on Southside probably before you get to the BP School Board Credit Union Bank, and when we walked outside with our guns a male neighbor with light-color skin and his bodyguard was outside.

We were new to the house and the neighbor did not know us and we did not know him, they went to point guns at us, and so we pointed guns at them and we had a standoff.

We managed to talk the situation down, we found out that we were neighbors and that none of us were infected, and we briefly talked before either me and maybe my roommate left.

We went to The D High School, I remember walking through the building seeing some people who were infected, and some were at various stages of the infection.

At first people would get sick, slowly they would start to look sickly and different, they would start to get more mentally unstable as their bodies would slightly transform to look slightly different and paler and scarier (somewhat vampire like), as it gets worse they would mumble and talk to themselves and act a bit zombie like and not like themselves (almost like they are possessed), and then during the final stage they will go crazy and just attack people probably biting them et cetera like they have rabies / like zombies / like crazed vampires / like wild mentally unstable people.

I saw a female student with dark-color skin, well she was paler in the face now, who was mumbling to herself and walking zombie-like down the hall and she was about to reach the final stage very soon it seemed.

As I got further up the hallway she probably reached the final stage and I heard her going crazy and attacking people, I kept moving as chaos broke out, and maybe another person started going wild.

Eventually I went to another building where maybe I went to work, my supervisor Ms. JM was there and she was still my supervisor, and she let me borrow maybe some nail clippers that I used and then I cleaned and I gave back to her.

I remember talking to JM after thanking her, we probably talked about various things, including the vampire (vampirism)-like virus, and then I continued working or whatever.

But I woke up.

Three Survival Challenges?

Source: Wikimedia Commons

Last night I had a dream that had at least three parts to it, but I can only remember parts of the dream, so it is not that clear.

Part 1

I think the first part that I remember took place outside in some unknown place near some old ruins that had some water not far from them.

I was with a group of other people and I think we were doing some sort of challenge as part of some new student orientation or something for college.

The ruins had an ancient Roman / ancient Greek style to them and the area was pretty nice for some old ruins and we were split into different sections of the ruins.

We were all placed in a certain part of the ruins based on which country we were citizens of, then we were asked to pick a country, I picked France so I was moved to another section all alone.

There was grass and some other plants in some areas and my area was nice & quiet and closer to the water.

On the ground you could barely see shapes in different colors, which represented countries, and my country France was in blue.

I guess our mission was to try to conquer as many countries as we could or at least defend our country from getting conquered, I am not sure, I just remember the challenge beginning.

It was like the Total War video game series, certain spots on the ground were the game map, and I/we were the leaders making the moves on the board.

We could even enter the game map, like it was a real world, it was interesting.

Since no one was in my area, my plan was to conquer all the countries in my section as quickly as I could and then start preparing to defend or invade some of the other challengers.

I went into the game map and was actually in my country France, but it was a small country and was in an almost Middle Ages (Dark Ages)-like period.

I quickly asked a few of my generals about the country next to us and asked if we could invade them now, they said yes so I told them to start the attack now.

I went back above the game map as the battle started to watch and the other countries army was about the same size, actually I do not think any of the countries near me were actually countries, I think they were just settlements that did not belong to any country.

The battle started and the battle was going pretty evenly, so I looked for an opening on the battlefield and then jumped into the battle to lead my military to a quick victory.

I told the generals about a weak spot I saw and order them to attack there with part of our forces while I attack from the front lines, and so the new attack began.

The other military quickly broke ranks and the front line troops & I forced them to retreat, then I told the generals to finish securing the area and prepare for the next battle, and I went back above the game map.

I wondered if my military was strong enough to conquer our area in time before some of the other challengers came with their militaries, and I worried about a possible battle with the United States (USA).

They had the most challengers and the biggest country that I had seen before the challenge started, and their country was in the area next to my area & I was with their team until they asked if we wanted to pick our own country; before I could scout out the next place to attack, the dream switched to another scene.

Part 2

Now some of the challengers and I were in the field near my parent’s house and our next challenge was to live in this makeshift cabin, and survive or something like that.

I can not remember this part of the dream much at all, I think we all had to work together for food & supplies, but that is all I remember; then the dream switched to another scene.

Part 3

This scene was the worst, me and a few other people appeared to be in a cave out in some snowy & icy area like Antarctica or something.

Our challenge was to survive for a certain amount of time and once again I believe it had something to do with college orientation or getting into college like the other parts of the dream.

I think there was two women, a man, and me at first but one of the women gave up & left.

The weather was terrible it was cold and snowing hard, and we were forced to stay in the cave due to the storm.

I remember going to sleep and waking up with a bad wound on my leg, which caused me to have to walk with a limp, and I had no idea what had happened.

The other guy left shortly after we woke up to go find supplies or something, and so me & one woman were left.

We talked about how we all might not survive and how our situation looked pretty bad, and we had no idea where we were or what had happened to my leg.

We needed food and other supplies, so I started to think about preparing to scout the area outside if the other guy did not return, but I woke up.
