The character, or a messenger touched by the character, sends a phantasmal message to others in the form of a dream. At the beginning of the spell, the character must name the recipient or identify him by some title that leaves no doubt as to his identity. The messenger then enters a trance, appears in the intended recipient’s dream, and delivers the message. The message can be of any length, and the recipient remembers it perfectly upon waking.

The communication is one-way. The recipient cannot ask questions or offer information, nor can the messenger gain any information by observing the dreams of the recipient. Once the message is delivered, the messenger’s mind returns instantly to her body. The duration of the spell is the time required for the messenger to enter the recipient’s dream and deliver the message.

If the recipient is awake when the spell begins, the messenger can choose to wake up (ending the spell) or remain in the trance. She can remain in the trance until the recipient goes to sleep, then enter the recipient’s dream and deliver the message as normal. If the messenger is disturbed during the trance, she awakens, and the spell ends.

Creatures who don’t sleep or dream (such as elves, but not half-elves) cannot be contacted by this spell.

The messenger is unaware of her own surroundings or the activities around her while in the trance. She is defenseless, both physically and mentally (she always fails any saving throw, for example) while in the trance.
