Alexis had a really good one today! Now let me see if I can describe it right.

She was playing some new Zelda game on the Switch. It played out in a book that illustrated itself as the game went on ("it had a really distinct style, with lots of black and brown ink"). There was a lot of talk online that this was finally the game where Link was a woman instead, but as she played it turned out she was playing as Zelda instead. Like, "the fights were a lot more strategic than usual."

A book illustration style like that sounds like the graphical engine used for the Valkryia Chronicles games.

My boardgame group accidentally invented robots with artificial general intelligence.

Fortunately, they were fond of humans (ultimate goal of maximizing human fulfillment, and minimizing variance). Unfortunately, they were a little short-sighted on consequences and decided the best way to maximize human happiness was to fire instant death lasers at every politician, at any level of power, whose policies were impeding action against climate change.

Only after simultaneously disintegrating 98% of the world's politicians, did they realize that other nations might react with hostility. At this point the dream moves into a secret ultra-tech command center the machines built, tracking important events worldwide as they attempt (with mixed results) to avert a disastrous global war. My memory of the rest is fragmented but here are a few noteworthy background events:

1) Some of the machine intelligence scout drones encounter a Xenomorph nest in freezing waters off the coast of Alaska.
2) Bernie Sanders disappears into a secret druidic lair in the forests of Vermont.
3) Elizabeth Warren follows fragmented myths and rumors to a place of power from which she will be able to save the world, only to discover it was a trick by Joe Biden to force her into marrying him.
How fleeting are all human passions compared with the massive continuity of ducks.

I had a part 3 to my dream a while back, but I didn't think it was worth posting because it was literally just me sitting in a (roman) room at a table while Brentai lectured me for failing to overthrow Sharkey and then sat down and demanded I critique TNG and TOS episodes with him but all the episodes were in roman style. Like the episodes were the same but everyone was wearing a toga and they would throw their gladius instead of shooting their phasers.

I commented that if we actually found and watched that one TOS episode where it actually IS like that in real life, we would finally crack the "dreamcode" and be able to live forever inside our own minds. But I couldn't remember the name of the episode and Brentai just kept insisting we watch the TNG Irish episode over and over because he found the ridiculous Irish accents even funnier because they were all in a toga.

The dream ended with Sharkey's voice coming in over a megaphone (complete with that screeching sound at first) declaring that "Birds of Prey" would now be called "Fat Johnsons" and then laughing hysterically.
