"...'Dream', aka 'Sandman, 'Morpheus', 'Oneiros', the 'Shaper', the 'Shaper of Form', 'Lord of the Dreaming', the 'Dream King', 'Dream-Sneak', the 'Cat of Dreams', 'Murphy', 'Kai'ckul' and 'Lord L'Zoril', is the anthropomorphic personification of dreams.

"In the beginning, Morpheus is captured by an occult ritual and held prisoner for 70 years. He escapes in the modern day and, after dealing with his captors, sets about rebuilding his kingdom, which has fallen into disrepair in his absence.

"Set in the 'Dreaming' realm, and the waking world, with occasional visits to other domains, including 'Hell', 'Faerie', 'Asgard' and the domains of the other 'Endless', both the US and the UK are used as backdrops..."
