Once upon a time, the Dreaming Forest was beautiful, perfect. Fae and Human alike wandered into the Forest in their sleep, walking the maneyed path to the Whispering Tree. Here, at the Heart of the Forest, the Tree whispered all manner of things. But whatever wish you whispered in return, it would come true when you woke up! That is, until the Lightning Beast came, hungry and despairing. Everything is twisted now, dark, and terrifying. Flashes of nightmares roam the forest. But you need this wish to come true, no matter what. And so you venture forth, into the forest twisted by nightmarish beasts, the tree waiting for you…
