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 are sent by the headmaster or headmistress of the day, and they appear to the children as they sleep and leave them a token (usually an inscribed stone), which is found in the child's hand on waking.[1] This method of pupil selection is unique to Uagadou.[1]
