I just made a 2-week time-lapse GIF for the updated map that if you can click on it, it will give you a rapid-fire sequence of events based on positive-neutral-negative outcomes we experienced up to this point. At first, the Lucians appear to be losing ground a little bit from several negative dream outcomes, but after some major encouragement, plus the advantage of using the high ground give them an advantage to push farther north just before reaching snow-capped territory. Autumn is setting in fast from the north, and heavy storms are battering the neutral eastern seaboard that is not my concern.
As of now given the last frame, this is where my dream people need further tactical assistance to either use the mountainous terrain and take the northernmost Soul Tower on the way (A), or a bottleneck one-way main road to attack the enemy capital, taking two of the remaining three Soul Towers with it (B). If they do not take either route within the next month, they will retreat to the continental border and reset the meter to 60/40 due to neutral dream outcomes or delayed reinforcements and supplies.

Looks like one of the high-ranked Chasers,(3rd image) a demon knight wants to challenge me in my dreams after I firmly rejected his offer to betray the Lucians to help my enemy win their soul harvesting movement, it would be high treason followed by automatic waking up with a swollen head. The duel will take place on Rockcrown Cliff (4th image) just not far from the Soul Tower northeast of the disputed continental border, and it will be a fight to the death type of dream starting whenever the next time I become lucid. This the first translated place I deciphered from my map into English. I have no experience in dream combat, so most certainly I will lose followed by waking up unless I get to know what stabilization is. I am advanced with the visualizing, checks, programmed events and story detail, but lack the in-dream techniques needed to survive extended REM stays.
Other high-ranked Chasers may join in to duel with me should I win somehow by luck or self-confidence. This type of dream is just as ambiguous as Madotsuki. I might just soon end up with her (not lethally) too if I cannot win my unintended dream war with beasts without a walk-through. Help would be appreciated, and I will thank you for any advice. The exact names of whom challenged me remains classified, and my dream story is still on going, so all images will just be generic sad faces for now.
why a new thread?
Eh, I have no idea where this comes from; my thoughts are clouded at the moment. This is actually part of the thread that focuses on dreams that catch my interest as of late, and I do not attempt in any way switching them unless necessary. Thanks for coming in!
