Frank Frass has been having a bad time lately. His hatred of Cordoba and this whole freakin’ reality has reached a boiling point. He wants to grab the world and shake it like a snowglobe, destroying everything, but every time he tries to express his anger something gets in his way. He’s given this thing a name: it’s called “Reggie.” Just now it happened again. Frank screamed in frustration, and the sky shattered in response.

Chaos ensues. Panic everywhere. “That’s right,” thinks Frank. He then gathers up his Will and issues a psychic command: “Bring me Reggie,” he says. He then heads into a Stop-n-Gulp, where he Lucid Dreams a lucrative transaction for a candy bar and some caffix. Then he heads toward Somnambula headquarters – gathering up an army of giant insects along the way – to await Reggie’s arrival.

Traffic on the freeway slams to a halt, and Nash’s car slams into the truck ahead of him. Hurt but not badly, he finds his phone. Reggie Lucid Dreams to that location, where he appears naked beside the car, pushes Nash over, and takes the wheel. In the distance they see Frank approaching, followed by his army of insects. Trae, approaching this scene on foot, takes a long shot at Frank and hit him, just as a giant murder hornet breaks off from the pack and attacks the car with Nash and Reggie inside.

Trae, having hacked into Somnabula’s HR department, issues an immediate notice to all personnel that Frank Frass is outside and needs to be eliminated. He then issues an APB to the municipal police while Nash shoots at the hornet and Frank sends another wave of giant bugs toward the car. At that moment Reggie pushes himself as hard as he can, and creates a cube outside of spacetime with himself, Nash, and Frank inside it.

Conversation in the cube gets complicated fast, as Frank tries his best to convince Nash and Reggie that the world they’ve called the real one is, in fact, a dream. His assumption is that they’re in a dream state, like he is, and their real bodies are somewhere in tanks, like his. Nash argues that’s not true, but the more Frank talks, the more it becomes clear that they really have *no idea* what world they just came from, or whether it was the “real” one. Franks manifests whiskey for everyone.

Back on earth, the big bugs shrink back down to normal size, and the sky is normal again. Trae runs toward the Somnambula building, hacking as he goes, but the system notices Callista’s signal is out of its assigned area and disconnects him. Use Code Legends10 to get 10% off your order
