A storyteller, sometimes called a dream warden or fate master, is a creature of the Collective Conscious that roams the Dreamscape. A storyteller prefers to merely observe a dreamer, but may intervene against unnatural threats to the Dreamscape.
Lore Keeper. A storyteller observes the dreams of a dreamer and records it within the Collective Conscious. It will alter the dream to uncover the dreamer’s story to record its deeds and knowledge so that eternity never loses the memory of the dreamer’s influence on creation.
Guiding Spirit. When a creature worthy of interest to the multiverse is at a crossroad, unsure what path to take, a storyteller will alter its dreams to offer guidance on the paths it can take.
Eternal Watcher.A storyteller is a chronicler and as such prefers to never get directly involved with the story other creatures weave. If encountered by a dream actor, the storyteller will be honest but evasive, never revealing truths that could change the course the dreamer is upon. This detachment is sometimes forgone if another creature is attempting to twist the dreams of the dreamer to alter the natural course of the present. A storyteller will aid dreamers when confronted with a creature such as a dreamstalker or night hag, but a storyteller is not well equipped to defeat such creatures alone.
