I own this book, and very much like it, but my impression is that a Dreamlands campaign would be closer to a ‘weird fantasy’ campaign, rather than a ‘standard’ CoC campaign. Actually, I’ve wanted to run a “native” DL campaign as suggested in the most current edition from Chaosium. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
