Dream Ticket is a playful art project. You and your friends will need to gather several small slips of paper. On each one, write a short blessing, prophecy, or cryptic message, such as:
the faceless brood sings for you.
the bone tree remembers
whither the abomination of the sands?
meet me at the cenotaph, oh darling blue eyes
Try to write inscriptions that are weird and arcane, and avoid violence and vulgarity. If you're looking for inspiration, the generators at Seventh Sanctum are a wonderful resource.
Divide the prophecies among the players and stash them in your pockets. Over the course of the day, randomly pull notes from your pocket and leave them where others will find them. Slip one between the pages of a library book. Hide some in the pockets of clothes as you go shopping for a new cloak. Leave one tucked away with the camping gear at your local sporting goods store. Follow your heart.
I'd like to offer a special chant of gratitude to Bucky Cutright, who helped birth this game during a lovely spring drive along I-79 and who suggested that I write the words "dream ticket" on a small scrap of paper.
