As the addicts recover from the initial shock of finding themselves in the Dreamlands, they realize they must flee the ruined city they started in or suffer a fate worse than death. After escaping, they find themselves at a strange city. The citizens there offer to help them find a way home, but only if they first go on a quest to seek out answers from an oracle. The dreamers accept, having no other choice, and they set off on their first mission in this strange new world. Being men from the modern world and lacking certain important skills like sword fighting, can they survive the perils of the wilderness?
