All Quiet in Music City
The Gauntlet is the barrier that separates our world from the spirit world, and Dreamspeakers are almost the only ones who can detect it (few other Traditions bother with Spirit magic). If a spirit wants to cross into our world or if an Awakened wants to traverse the spirit world, then they must first breach the Gauntlet. Dreamspeakers are particularly careful to repair any holes in the Gauntlet that they cause or that they come across in their journeys. While Dreamspeakers are the Awakened masters of the Gauntlet, there are many other supernatural entities, especially Werewolves, who cross it frequently.
