In Dreamlords players assume the roles of the mystical Dreamlords, magical entities that spawn from the nightmares of the mythic Dreamer himself. Dreamlords may empower forceful methods but their presence is always welcome as they also have the power to provide goals and guidance for a fragmented piece of the old world. A world consisting of shattered pieces of land, called Patrias, home to hardened populations of survivors controlled by a sovereign Dreamlord. The success of each Patria is solely depending on the capability of its ruling Dreamlord. As well as fighting, co-operation is important in Dreamlords. All players belong to a guild, called Convergence, and cooperating within your own Convergence is necessary to be successful.
