Everything shifted abruptly and now I was in what looked like a modern shopping mall, only it was absolutely enormous and mazelike - with corridors and open areas spread haphazardly. The kids I was with had become grown and then the boys (well now men I guess) went into a storefront and came out with my gear. This consisted of some sort of high-tech looking vest with readouts on it and was a dull grey color; it was extremely comfortable and I didn't even notice any weight to it despite it looking a little bulky. There was also a small piece of cloth they wrapped around my throat and a small pin-like device they attached to it that they said would let me talk to them when seperated. Then final piece of kit I was given was a large rifle that looked straight out of Fifth Element. It had switches and counters all over it and some sort of strange holographic looking display that seemed like radar. It was incredibly light as well.
After getting suited up we began to move through the mall. It was filled with people who I felt weren't actual people but more like dream figments; they didn't seem to notice us or really interact with us. We soon ran into what I assume was the enemy. It sounds a little ridiculous, and I thought it was when I first saw them, but they all looked like Master Chief from Halo. These Chiefs were running through the mall shooting people and corralling them into different open areas. They did this with what looked like military tactics; moving to a doorway, covering it while others moved up and into the next area, that sort of thing. They saw my group and started shooting and moving extremely aggressively.
I followed my small group's example and we began to return fire but it was soon clear we were horribly outnumbered. Each of us were incredibly agile and could jump and slide and move like an action movie on steroids but no matter how many of the Chiefs we seemed to kill (I say seemed because when they would "die" they just sort of turned a bluish opaque color and dissintegrated into nothing) we were constantly being pushed back. At one point another group of dream walkers joined us and we were able to push back a bit, with my team moving down a side corridor to flank the Chiefs. I saw in this one central area there seemed to be a groupd of these mall-denizens bowing to a group of Chiefs, which I thought was frigging weird, but we used them as a sort of distraction to get in close and light them up. After some more intense exchanges of fire the Chiefs seemed to retreat down a very large corridor and I knew we had 'won' the fight.
I felt wiped out and as my group began to hoof it back towards where we set out from initially I asked one of the guys if I'd be exhausted when I woke up. He told me that 'no, when you exert youself here it doesn't affect your body and I should feel rested.' As we walked towards the exit of the mall on our end of it (I guess it was, it felt like friendly territory anyway) I remember walking out the door into the sunlight and then everything fading to white as I finally woke up.
So that's it. I just wanted to share it with everyone and maybe talk about it if anyone is interested. It was quite a ride, let me tell you.

I'd be extremely interested in any more information about these dream walkers you can share. Like what sort of interactions your friend had with them, the context of those interactions, etc. Just as much info as you can provide.
It was really a singular and awesome experience. I sort of feel like they were just hanging out in this building and happened to see me create my dog and then noticed and approached me. No clue really just a gut feeling.
Thanks for your interest!
