Dream messenger

A future Uagadou student is visited by a Dream Messenger; note the token left on the child's right hand

The Dream Messenger was the method by which students of Uagadou School of Magic in Africa were notified of their selection to the school.[1][2] The Dream Messengers were sent by the headmaster or headmistress of the day, and they appeared to the children as they slept and left them a token (usually an inscribed stone), which was found in the child's hand on waking.[1] This method of pupil notification was unique to Uagadou.[1]
