Dreams in Action

The following ultra-tech drug lets you play the dream operatives of Inception in your GURPS Action campaign. To create such characters, you can use the Dream Operative lens with any of the templates in GURPS Action 1: Heroes.

Oneirozine: Developed for military training, this drug opens the user’s mind to the dreams of other users around them. With proper sedation and monitoring, a group using oneirozine can create entire realities within one member’s subconscious. Together, they can explore these worlds, and anyone with the Dreaming skill can change elements of the dream as they go. One dose of oneirozine lasts 24-hours, so most users will require additional drugs to remain asleep for the full period. Injection. $4,750 per dose. LC2.
