Welcome to No Books of Men! We are a modern alternate history board set in a magical school nestled in the Columbiana Valley of the Rocky Mountains. Students of the Collegium Illustrata Columbiana (commonly called simply The Academy) are free to explore their wildest imaginations in learning the mystic arts, so long as it does not jeopardize the ongoing Shadow War with the Exarchs. How will you live up to the legacies of Merlin?

Name: Mad Bill, Billy and occasionally OI YOU! Age: 21 Affiliation: Changeling, Autumn Court Occupation: Traveler, Dreamhealer, psychologist. Peronality: Quiet, friendly, and direct. Eager to assist any Changelings but wary of the Mages.
Herb's a student, though he doesn't really go to the Academy much anymore (he's doing his residency at the local hospital), but I could see these two having run into one another, if not by dint of him having to take a psyche class in his undergrad years. Then the fact that he's just recently awakened and has a foot in the collective consciousness of the universe...
I could see these two running into one another in the astral umbra (ie- dream) much to Herb's horror, because well...he's been seeing a thousand points of light and the multiverse of possibilities so...really he's been having a bad time, and hasn't had the misfortune of yet pulling someone else into the real horror of it all.
@ Herbert I like this idea quite a bit but I shall have to do a bit more research on what is being done with the Dreamscape on No Books. I'm mostly based on New World of Darkness so my ideas have to be carefully looked at but after a bit of research I would like to give that a go.
These two would have a great deal to discuss, especially vis-a-vis the realms of psychology and the mind as well as its faculties. Too, she would be curious to hear his theories on navigating people's dreamscapes. In addition to that, I think that it would be neat if her were somehow involved in some of her research. I understand that he is wary of mages, just as Sarah-Maud is wary of changelings, however, I feel if they set aside the social constructs that are supposed to divide them, these two could accomplish a great deal of things.
Bill seems like a particularly knowledgeable sort. I imagine Waverly would have a lot of questions for him and/or would be interested in his help if he is willing. His knowledge of dreams could be very helpful. I can imagine her asking him to enter her Fetch's dreams or seek out his abilities in dream healing. Waverly is also interested in the hedgefruit and would be interested in asking someone to go into the Hedge to gather some with her.
