You fashion dreamstuff from the Shallows to create a dreamborn version of yourself. The dreamborn version looks, sounds, and smells like you, but it is only a dream. It mimics your actions (including speech) unless you direct it to stand quietly (which is a move action) or relinquish control of its senses (also a move action).

You can see through its eyes and hear through its ears as if you were standing where it is, and during your turn you can switch from using its senses to using your own, or back again, as a free action. While using its senses, your body is considered blinded and deafened. When not using its senses, it is mindless (and cannot be affected by mind-affecting effects) and stands motionless. You cannot command it in any other way except for when you take control of its senses.

If you desire, any power you manifest that has a range of touch or greater can originate from the dreamborn version of you instead of from you. The dreamborn cannot manifest any powers on itself. The powers affect other targets normally, despite originating from the dreamborn version of you.

You must maintain line of effect to the dreamborn version of you at all times. If your line of effect is obstructed, or if you purposefully break the line of effect, the power ends.

The dreamborn image of you is hazy and enjoys a 20 percent miss chance from all attacks. If successfully attacked, the dreamborn version of you is exceedingly fragile—if it takes more than 10 points of damage, it is destroyed and the power ends.
