I haven't done much with Mysticism, yet, but I have been running quite a bit of Dream Magic in my Verenela game. I have been treating it mostly as it's own Otherworld, with its own rules. I see it being a Mixed Otherworld - in a lot of ways it would be very similar to the Mortal World.

I guess I've been running "Dream" like a magical prefix - their are Dream Affinities, Spirits, Spells and Talents.

For example:
In Teshnos, there are dreamers who sacrifice to her as Theleya, Daughter of Somash, and gain Dream Affinities. In Melib there are nightmare hunters that practice a form of Animism. And as villians, there are the Sorcerors of the Black Mirror, who serve the Antigod Adlanari.

"Aum Shanti Shanti Shantih."
