Dreamwalkers has the premise that certain people (loosely defined as self-aware beings of various origins) have the ability to "see" more than one reality at a time.
Further, that "The world of dreams" - the collective unconscious - is what shapes and forms our ordinary, everyday reality. Dreamwalkers see "consensus reality" (waking life for most human beings) as being rather like the basement of a house. It's very important, has all sorts of things about it that need to be maintained, but it's not where you wish to spend your free time.
But wait, there's more. Most Dreamwalkers keep their abilities to themselves. Some could be classed as crazy (although most are not as they are sane enough to not call attention to themselves). Some of the most powerful in dreams are barely present in real life, due to some physical or organic mental handicap that limits their "Real World" activities.
What is the world of dreams like? - THAT depends a great deal on the dreamer, and every dreamer has their own, private world of dreams. But there are also huge areas of overlap - the "collective unconscious" and those areas have to be explored, expanded, maintained and - perhaps most importantly - policed.
And that is what Dreamwalkers is about. Policing the collective unconscious.
Since Dreamwalkers deals with the things that crawl up from the Id and try to tempt, torment and screw with us, and such things manifest in ways that Freud and Jung would recognize immediately - it is Not Safe For Work. And you might wish to stock up on brainfloss before reading.
