First, and most importantly, I had a dream last night that involved Shao'Kehn. Here's how it went:
I was me, but I was also an experienced ghost wrangler, basically driving ghosts out of places they were being bothersome. I was in a flea market when my ghost sense prickled and I turned just in time to see some furniture try to kill some children. It didn't succeed, thankfully. Anyway, this led me to try to exorcise an entire family home. I was wandering around the house, trying to find the ghost's primary haunt (I've been reading a lot of Felix Castor books lately), when I realized that it wasn't ghosts at all; it was a demon. I found the demon inside a man of about 70 or 80, and when the demon realized that I was onto him, he tried to fight. I managed to hold the old man down. Now here's the best bit: I was wielding my Shao'Ahn'Dih'Gahn necklace
at him like a crucifix, certain that only my faith was necessary to hurt him (and sure enough, the demon looked pained every time I got it closer to him) and was invoking Shao'Kehn to cast the demon out. I was even using my real ritual phrase "I use Shao-Kehn's Knife to cut you out" against this demon. It worked! After a few minutes of this, the demon gave a sigh of giving up, and disappeared. I commanded him to leave and never return just prior to his leaving. The old man soon recovered, and he seemed to remember everything.
In another, unrelated dream later, I was being made to care for an extremely ugly baby. He was tiny and red and had ears like an elephant's ear (but MUCH smaller) and his skin was saggy. He cried and fussed a lot. Someone finally took him off my hands, and the dream wandered off into something else.
