    Possibly not Moliate, if Bart Simpson is right about Casper being the ghost of Richie Rich.

        My understanding is that their involvement in Dreams is because of a desire to be able to do something outside the actual underworld. Entering someone's dreams means they aren't in the Underworld anymore, and the Dream Theatres of their Guild aren't in the Underworld either. And they're able to enter some of the greater Dream Realms which also exist outside the Underworld. This is the closest to being alive that they can get. That is a pretty big allure. In all of these places not only are they able to interact with the dream selves of the living, but powerful mortals and creatures who can do the same, and that would include Mages, Werewolves, and Faerie.

            I've never heard that visiting the living in DREAMS violate the Dictum. Since the Sandmen are not one of the Criminal Guilds, I assume the Hierarchy is fine with that provided their dream visits do not harm the living.

              It's messing with the mortal world. They may not be a de facto Criminal Guild but that doesn't mean they get a pass. It's like Keening. Chanteurs who mess with the Skinlands are just as guilty as those who use Outrage, Puppetry, Pandemonium, Alchemy, etc. but, since their Arcanos is equally useful in the Skinlands, they aren't inherently malefactors. (Hells, Alchemcy indicates that it's not just messing with the living that's an issue, since it's just messing with the stuff in the Skinlands. Arguably, Phantasm, as it works directly on a mortal, is a much worse crime when used in that way...)
