【书籍搬运】The Dreamstride 梦见之药

Recommended Posts

作者:维耶米拉谜之炼金术师

翻译:花溪流萤

数千年来,维耶米拉祭司们在炼金技能方面都是大师级人物。有关他们炼制的药剂的精巧度和神奇效能,从来都不乏传说。这些炼金史上的瑰宝如此受追捧,以至于在黑市甫一流出便能迅速被哄抬至数万赛普仃。

在众多重现于世的药剂当中,令人印象最深的大概要属维耶米拉的蛰伏。此种粘稠液体只需饮下少许就能将你带入“盗梦空间。”在这种状态下,实验对象可以感同身受的体验他人的梦境,并与梦境完全融合,成为其中不可分割的部分。造梦者很容混淆外来之物与梦境中的固有存在,因此很容易泄露自己的行为习惯,讲话方式,据此实验主体亦可推想出造梦者的部分认知。

对观察者来讲,实验对象饮下药剂之后便会匿形。并且随着梦境的深入,其本体亦会随之移动到现实世界对应地点。药效过期之时,实验对象将会精确的传送到梦境消失瞬间所处位置。很多梦境仅将实验者抛离数步之遥,另外一些则在数分钟内将其带离原地远达数里。

据记载,盗梦空间满布危机,对实验对象来说陷阱重重。某些噩梦中,造梦者将会遭遇诸如疾病,暴力之类的危险,甚至因此丧命。大多数情况下,实验者都能安然归来,但在某些特定实例中,实验者就此消失或者返回后已然死去。而且很多时候,实验者返回现实世界的地点充满了不确定性和危险,尽管梦境中这些地点看上去相当安全。

研制维耶米拉蛰伏的祭司的初衷至今成谜。这种独特传送机制是蛰伏本身的副作用还是维耶米拉的阴谋已不得而知,相对于此,利用梦境穿越天堑的可能性毫无疑问远比其谜样历史来得诱人。

The Dreamstride
by The Mysterious Alchemists of Vaermina
A description of the nature and effect of Vaermina's Torpor


For over a thousand years, the Priests of Vaermina have been masters of the art of alchemy. The complexity and potency of their mixtures are nothing short of legendary. These alchemical treasures are so highly sought-after, that a single draught showing up on the black market can command sums in the tens of thousands of septims.
Of the numerous potions that have surfaced to date, Vaermina's Torpor is perhaps the most impressive. A single sip of this viscous liquid places the imbiber in a state known as "The Dreamstride." This condition allows the subject to experience the dreams of another as if they were actually there. The subject becomes an integral part of the dream, behaving as if they belong. To any other entities in this dream state, the subject will be mistaken for the dreamer; the subject will even find his mannerisms, speech patterns and knowledge expanded appropriately.
To an observer, after the subject has imbibed the potion, they will appear to vanish. As the subject traverses distances within the dream, they will also be traversing distances in the actual world. When the Torpor's effect has expired, the subject will fade back into reality in the exact location projected within the Dreamstride. Some Dreamstrides have transported their subjects a few feet, and some have appeared thousands of miles from their origin in a matter of minutes.
It's to be noted that the Dreamstride is highly dangerous and presents the subject with numerous pitfalls. In certain dreams, subjects have been exposed to life-threatening scenarios such as sicknesses, violence and even death. In most cases, the subject simply fades back to our world without harm, but in some instances, the subject never reappeared and was assumed to have expired or the subject reappeared deceased. It's also quite possible that the subject could reappear in a precarious or hazardous location in reality, even though that location appeared safe within the Dreamstride.
Vaermina's Torpor is as mysterious and elusive as the priests that created it. It's unknown whether this unique transport mechanism is a result of the Torpor itself or simply the odd machinations of Vaermina, but the potential for using the Dreamstride to penetrate seemingly impassible obstacles certainly outweighs its mysterious nature.
