Drug utilized to initiate dream sharing and lucid dreaming



Behind the Scenes
First Appearance


The compound we'll be using to share the dream creates a very clear connection between dreamers whilst actually accelerating brain function.


Somnacin is the name of the drug used to initiate dream sharing and lucid dreaming. The Portable Automated Somnacin IntraVenous Device is designed to deliver it. The brand name version of it is controlled by an international control council.[1]

Yusuf makes his own version of it, which increases the effect of Somnacin so that dreams are more stable and time within the dream is twenty times normal. It will also compound the effect with every new dream level.

    Yusuf: Binds the dreamers tight. Let's them dream as one. Makes it real. Of course, if you'd prefer, you could use Somnacin brand. If you could to explain to the international control council what you wanted it for.
