There is a large movement of people moving around the countryside, looking for work. In order to move safely around the countryside they have to pledge allegiance to a local warlord. A female warlord discovers a group of people moving around the countryside independent of any allegiances. She is very critical of this. She tells them that they will have to camp in the fields outside of the town where it is not safe. By pledging allegiance to her they will have the safety of the town to protect them.
Dream notes and associations
I was not a participant in this dream. It was like watching a movie on the big screen. The setting could have been contemporary or 500 years ago or any era in between. The female warlord looked like the actress Claudia Karvan.
My feelings throughout the dream and on awakening
