    Hey there! :3
    Would vampires or other highly sensitive supernatural beings be able to use the dream machines too? Seeing that it's functioning with a chemical substence, it'd be possible that their sensitive noses would be rather appalled by the smell, making it impossible to fall asleep?

    Does Wati Corp need a spokesperson?you know, someone to use in advertisements and and live promotions to get people hyped for this thing.

    Because I would love to throw Callie at something like that. She may have lost her idol status upon arriving in Pandora, but she still has the charm and charisthma that got her that position back home.

    As a baku, Madotsuki can enter and eat the dreams of others. What would happen if she tried to eat one of these artificial dreams? Would she even be able to do so?

    I can't see any of my characters wanting to try out such a device, but would it be possible to role-play them as dream versions of themselves in other people's dreams?

    @Steel
    Would you be interested in having someone hack into the network for potentially non-nefarious reasons?

    I'm entertaining the idea of Elliot getting his hands on one, getting addicted to it, and eventually work to hack into the network. His paranoia over one entity, one corporation, having all that power would be extremely high. Monitoring that to make sure it's not being exploited would be his first goal - but the part of him that would latch on to the addiction is really after control over his other half - Mr. Robot.

    And in this line of plotting I'd love for someone to put him in jail for it. (Since that would fit perfectly into some other plots I'm doing).

    If a more evil character wants to hack into it too- perhaps Elliot can get framed for it. Just throwing out ideas - let me know if it fits!

    Yep, they could still use it! I don't know anything about chemical reactions, but I'm assuming that the strength of the odor isn't something that would necessarily negate the chemical reaction. To a human, the odor is fairly odorless and works almost instantly, putting them under in seconds. If a non-human character wants to be impacted differently by the chemical, however, we'll leave that decision up to the individiaul.

    I think that would be a lot of fun, so go for it!

    Yep, she could eat an artificial dream. For all intents and purposes, you can treat any Dream Machine-related dream the same way you would a normal dream in relation to character powers.

    Yep, you can do that!

    I'm cool with you pursuing that as a personal plot. Just as long as Elliot doesn't negate the possibility or potential of a site-wide plot popping up for someone hacking in for other reasons.
