HYPNAGOGIC JERKS is a rules light coin flipping rpg zine where the setting is the dream of any character you like, and you play as an AGENT of that character's unconscious mind! Escort the DREAMER's INCARNATION along the path to unknown psychological insights, or prevent them from those same insights at all costs. Opposing AGENTS will try to outwit you all along the way, and THRESHOLD GUARDIANS will fight tooth and nail to protect these secrets.
In Hypnagogic Jerks players take on the role of Sleep Agents. Aspects of the Dreamer's deep dark unconscious mind. Your mission, supplied to you by your Sleep Leader, will typically either see you escort the Dreamer's dream avatar to the site of a Threshold Guardian, where they and possibly your Agent, must pass a test to enter into the Temple of the Mind, or a similarly sacred space to gain enlightenment and learn a valuable truth about themselves, OR your mission might be to prevent them from that very same thing, as the truth might destroy their psyche. Either way, your team will have to deal with opposing and competing Agents all along the way, and there's always a chance the Dreamer will go Lucid and run off in a rogue state, or their physical self might wake, instantly pulling their dream selves out of the world for an indeterminate amount of time.
