ACTIONS

ABOUT

Amid humid hazes and azure sky, lone wasps drift sightlessly through the jungle forest, searching for overly ripe fruit and rotten meat. When a colony of dream wasps comes together, their nature shifts to violent territoriality that drives them to hunt in swarms. These swarms are led by the larger, more cunning drones and the colony’s queen. When colony size reaches into the thousands, the entire collective displays further heightened aggression and strange magical powers, waging war against neighboring colonies and strangers with equal ferocity.

As a dream wasp colony grows, so does their bizarre ability to use magic. Some believe the wasps somehow connect to the Dreamlands and communicate with each other in that strange dimension. Even more puzzling, while large colonies are capable of intricate planning and devious traps, there seems to be no way of communicating with dream wasps either by symbolic language or magic.
