Steve: Are you going to sleep in shifts or keep watch?
Zack: Kurt will try to stay awake watching Headbanger's Ball.
Steve: While Kurt is watching MTV, Left Eye is sleeping quietly. In her dream she sees a man with a body composed of green flame. Everything he touches is incinerated, but it's not terrifying, it's beautiful. Like flowers growing everywhere.
Zack: That sounds about right for a dream she would have.
Steve: She hears a voice calling to her, "Lisa, you are chosen. Lisa, you must kill your friends. Lisa, you must set me free."
Zack: Again, plausible Lisa Lopes dream sequence, is a shirtless Tyrese there?
Steve: Yes, along with hundreds of other people, all writhing in green fire that is swallowing up the world. The nations are united in peace and fire.
Zack: Tolstoy, or whatever his name was, is taking this end of the cold war thing a little bit too far.
Steve: Make a sanity roll for Lisa.
Zack: Oh no! Failed.
Steve: She loses 6 sanity and suffers from pyromania for the next month.
Zack: You mean extra pyromania? Enhanced pyromania?
Steve: She will also be weakened against magic from Tulzcha.
Zack: Fortunately, Kurt is our group's warlock. And he is going to make Timothy Shadow pay for what he is doing.

It's just a little confusing, is all.
