The hotel dream symbols (or dream symbols) are mysterious shapes appearing in a dream sequence at the hotel in Bear Stearns Bravo (First Impact), and alluded to in the Pronunciation Book Countdown video How to Pronounce 36. They are appear on the faces of the dice in the jungle, and seem to be linked to them somehow.
Character list[edit | edit source]
The six shapes that comprise the hotel dream symbols are shown below. Informally, each shape is often referred to, and denoted by, the character that is most closely represents it.
Triplet code[edit | edit source]
In the Bear Stearns Bravo dream sequence that the dream symbols formally appear in, a long series of symbol triplets flashes onscreen briefly. Full code:

Solution[edit | edit source]
Using 77Days.net member noodl's method to decipher the triplet code, the following message is purportedly revealed:
"The Promise The Tragedy The Hope Along Alone Alono The South Pyramid Forest A Revolution Sent Mortgage The Promise Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Fingers The Lights Burning Feel Dim Hate Neon, The Sky A Bubble A Wren A Jar A Ruby Meaning Everything With Glory And The Sound Of The Ocean Cover Us Up And May The Stars Forgive Us All Forgive Us All Forgive Yourself All"
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The hidden message is alluded to in the bravonet's newsbreak section. One of the captions of the images hosted there says: "THE HOPE THE TRAGEDY THE PROMISE, THE PROMISE, THE PROMISE OF A BETTER".
- Horse_ebooks referred to the hotel dream symbols several times in her tweets:
- 12/10/11, "hate the neon"
- 12/10/11, "at the insights you gain about those weird, bizarre symbols in your dreams."
- 27/09/12, "I spotted the real estate bubble well before it popped and exited with handsome" 
- 19/01/12, "The amazing history of the South Sea Bubble has been" 
- 20/12/12, "bubble" 
Speculation[edit | edit source]
- The symbols may represent more complex Dark Dollar arrangements.
- Several portion of the triplet code (The Tragedy, Fingers, and possibly Burning) refer to The Tragedy on Threadneedle Street. Hate Neon likewise refers to Mendoza's speech, in which he says to "hate the neon casino you call time".
- The section "A Wren A Jar A Ruby" could reference Jackie's offer for a betrayal-based bonus to Franco in Impact 1 in the Jinxed Spire - the options available are "a silent wren," "a descending jar," and "an urgent ruby"
