Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These) is a homebrew mini-campaign I’m running for five level 4-6 characters. I anticipate it will take 8 – 12 sessions to complete. This Sweet Dreams series chronicles each session with highlights and lessons learned, while the mystery of the sleepwalking curse unfolds throughout! We’re playing Dungeons and Dragons 5e (D&D 5e)

The Sleepy Owlbear Tavern

The session begins in Somnium, at the Sleepy Owlbear — a well-maintained, dimly-lit tavern with a bar and hot food. The party of five adventurers recently arrived, finding a table reserved for their benefactor, Vargik Tomedelver — but no Vargik, yet. The most interesting feature of the taproom is its proprietor, a narcoleptic awakened owlbear named Godfrey dozing off behind the bar. The patrons don’t seem alarmed by this. Mercifully, the players took my lackluster intro of “you’re in a tavern, maybe you’ve already met each other or not or something,” and ran with it. A rocky start, but I hadn’t DM’d (and they hadn’t played) in months.

The Dungeons and Dragons Group

We’re a group of friends that have been playing D&D 5e together for three years and counting. While we started playing in-person around the same table, we’re now split across two states and leverage technology to connect us. Our group is comprised of three couples and we’re all in our late-twenties to mid-thirties. Sometimes we’re mature, sometimes we’re silly, and sometimes the DM (that’s me) yeets their monster off a cliff because it’s been a long day. It’s been a few months since I’ve run Dungeons and Dragons. This compact D&D campaign is my way of getting back into the groove before we resume our long-running campaign.
