The Deathdream is an illness that spread to the inhabitants of the town in the Forest of Myth, induced upon them by Sleeping Beauty. They would go into a dreamlike state and only be able to speak and see through text.

Saving the other two villagers from the illness will have the mayor award Nier with Faith. The weapon can be bought from The Aerie during the second half of the game, if skipped.

New dialogue will be made available after the town is cured of the Deathdream. The first set appears after the mayor gives Nier the aforementioned weapon, while the next set only shows up while in search of the Memory Tree key after the timeskip:


"Ah! Hello again! You know, I've been trying to figure out a
way to thank you for saving me, and I think I've got it.
We're going to put up a statue of you! It will be ten feet
high and made of pure gold. Oh, and I know you don't own
a horse, but I think we'll put you on one anyway. Horses
just make people look more heroic, you know?"

"How's that? You don't want a statue? Oh. I thought you'd
really enjoy it."
"Regardless, thanks to your tireless efforts, our village is at
peace once more. And at peas. Ah hah hah! That's a little
agricultural joke right there."

"Anyway, I've been thinking about other things besides bad
jokes and statues. I've also decided that we need to start
holding the village festival again. We used to have it every
year, but the last mayor thought it was old-fashioned or
something and he killed it. But since I'm the mayor, I can
start it up again! That's not abusing my power or anything,
is it?"

"What's that? You want to hear about the festival? Well,
the official name is The Feast of the Three Days. We call it
that because everyone sits around a huge table and eats for
three days straight. No sleeping allowed! Oh, and we hold it
on the foggiest days of the year, so it's hard to tell what
you're eating. Some of the dishes are delicious, but some
are really rare and...well, there's some weird stuff in them.
Let's leave it at that. Anyway, you'd be pretty surprised
what you can eat when you haven't slept for a couple of
days."

"I'll make sure that a room is prepared for you so you can
be the guest of hon— What? You can't come? You have to
wash your hair? Oh. All right. Well, I guess that's
understandable. What with the adventuring and all."

"Truthfully, I think this town needs more group bonding
activities like that. It'll help us get to know each other, and
also promote unity in times of crisis and so forth."

Weiss coughed loudly.
"How much longer must we bear the insufferable flapping of
this fool's gums?" he whispered to Nier.
"Ah, let him talk. He just woke up; guy probably has a lot
on his mind."
Weiss sighed.
"This must be what Popola meant by bright and talkative..."

"Oh! It's you! Can I talk to you for a minute? Here, over
here."
"These are my neighbors. I was just telling them about the
dream I had. You know? The one you rescued me from?"

"...They don't believe me. They say I'm making the whole
thing up. Who could invent something like that? I
remember the darkness. I remember the screams. Listen,
you have to back me up here. They think I'm crazy. They
need to understand."

"Tell them how you pulled me out of that cell and there was
water everywhere, and how it was rising so quickly. Part of
me was convinced you had rescued me only to let me
drown, you know? I don't want to drown. People talk about
how it's peaceful, but I think they're lying."
"And tell them about the bodies. The bodies... Oh, gods,
there were so many of them..."

"There was the room with the beds and the corpses. Like
pieces of charcoal... I keep thinking about the fire and how
hot it must have been, but then I don't want to remember it
anymore, so I think about the wine. Only it wasn't wine; it
was blood, and it was still warm. Sometimes I can still
smell it. I'll be eating a piece of pie or something, and all I
can smell is that warm blood mixing with the rising water.
It's hard to eat now.

"When I see a table, I think about that feast, and the
guests, and how the carpet squished beneath my feet when
I walked. I don't know. It's weird. The pictures are maybe
the worst. I keep wondering if they knew they were going to
die, and how they could sit still knowing that each stroke of
the brush is a step closer to death. I think about stuff like
that a lot now. Actually, I have a hard time thinking about
anything else. I don't sleep much. Sleep is hard. I see such
terrible things when I close my eyes.

"Anyway, I was hoping you could tell my neighbors so
they'd... Hmm? Where did they go?"

"They left a while ago," said Nier quietly.
"Doubtless they find your dream a bit...disturbing," said
Weiss. "Perhaps you could find something else to talk about
with them, mmm? Such as the weather. Or kittens."
The villager smiled softly at Nier, but the smile soon faded
from her face. As the two of them slowly backed away, they
could see tears beginning to fall from the corners of her
eyes.

"Oh, hey! It's you! The guy who saved me from that crazy
city! It's great to talk to you again. You're my hero, you
know that? Oh, come on, don't be shy. It's all right. The
mayor even said we're going to build you a statue and
everything!"

"I hear you've been traveling the world. Good for you!
Travel is the key to happiness, you know? Getting out in
the world, meeting your fellow humans face-to-face... It
really changes the way you see things. I think change like
that will be vital in the new world that's coming. How's
that? Me? No, I've never traveled. Never left this village, to
tell you the truth. Still, I'd like to get out someday."

"I think our world is dying. Seriously! Think about it!
You've got the Black Scrawl, the Shades, the mysterious
illnesses like the Deathdream... It's like something is trying
to give us a warning."
"In fact, I'm sure this is a warning. We need to change our
ways before it's too late!"

"I'd like to help change the world, but I'm just a simple
villager. Not like you guys! You're on the front lines of
everything, rushing in with swords and magic spells and
stuff like that. Hey, I know! Maybe we can join forces and
change the world together! I mean, with your experience
and talent and my...uh...well, whatever I have. Anyway, I
think we could really make a difference."

"This world needs a leader; someone who can unite the
people in common purpose. He'd probably have to be kind
of tough, too. I mean, this isn't a world that appreciates
calm discussion, you know? He'd also need to be smart,
and have the ability to look down the road and think about
what's best for the future. I bet you'd be perfect! Whaddya
say!?"

"...Huh? You think I should do it? Oh, no! No, that's not...
I mean, thanks and everything, but no thanks. I'm not a
public limelight kind of guy. I'd rather hang around the
background and help from there. You know! Like an advisor
or a puppetmaster or whatever they're called. Actually, I
think I'd be pretty good at that."

Nier and Weiss left before the villager could hand them a
copy of his pamphlet, "Ten Simple Ways to Save the World."
As they walked, Weiss pondered openly about the man.
"I suppose he is what they call an armchair general."

Weiss: Such a fascinating tale.
Nier: Are you being serious?
Weiss: Of course not.

Nier: ... ...

Weiss: ...Quite.

It was ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ...

.....................! Can you believe it!?

Nier: Um...yeah. That's quite the story.
Weiss: I am impressed! Much of this story had been hidden
from us, and yet you seem to grasp it.
Nier: Don't be an idiot, Weiss. I don't understand a
goddamn thing that's happening right now.
