All adventures have humble beginnings, and Robert’s voyage is no exception. While on a harmless road trip with his family, he stopped off to have a picnic with some of his wife’s great-aunts. One of the aunts—a known fortuneteller—pulled out her runes, and for some reason Robert felt pulled to her. She read his fortune that innocent day, but his reading would change his life forever.

While crossing a darkened lake nestled in the Wisconsin North Woods, Robert falls into the Otherworld of the Spirit of Man. He leaves his body behind, allowing his spirit to travel freely, with the guidance of a wizard mentor. The balance that keeps humankind from destroying itself has been fatally tipped, and Robert is our only hope for survival. He must search for a Healer who can mend the rift before it’s too late.

The Archipelago of Dreams uses the medium of symbolic fantasy to explore the Waking Dream—the dream that is human life. Robert has found a link to his dream self, and it is in this dreamlike state that he must accomplish his mission. He cannot do it alone. With the help of a wizard, a tree warrior, and an ancient dream Healer, humanity can be saved. But will the rift be mended, or will Robert be trapped in the spirit realm forever?
