 Characters 

Bob
Prisonor in Dreamweave's basement. He responded to an ad for Dream Weaver test subjects. Tom paid him 40000 credits to help test the machine. "The computer got confused and plopped him down on the side of a mountain in Hawaii riding a lava flow." Sam left Bob on the machine all night. When Bob was discovered the next day, his mind was "blown." Tom kept him as a pet to experiement with. He made Bob screw a hornet's nest, get eaten alive by ants, get gang raped, get dropped from the Twin Towers, be drowned, and get his balls crushed, among other tortures. He was placed in an infinite feedback loop of pain in Dream Weaver, which opened a door to Hell.

Carl
President of Amtech. Leo Marks gave him the Dream Weaver technology, which he used to form the Dreamweave company.

Ern
Janitor at Dreamweave.

Dave
Janitor at Dreamwave. He wanted Ern to hurry so they could get to Hillbilly Heaven before it closed.

Joe
Friend of Tom. Tom gave him a tour of Dreamweave and showed him Bob.

Marks, Leo / Leo
Creator of Dream Weaver. He donated the plans to the computer to Amtech. He solved a puzzle cube, was taken to Hell, and made into the Cenobite Leo. When Tom solved the Dreamweave Puzzle, Leo arrived and took him to Hell.

Mars, Crystal
A celebrity. Most patrons of Dreamweave choose to have virutal sex with her.

Sam
A technician at Dreamweave. He left Bob on Dream Weaver for an entire night floating in lava.

Seaman, Jane
A celebrity. Tom preferred her to Crystal Mars.

Tom
A technician at Dreamweave. He recruited Bob to help test Dream Weaver. After Bob was left floating in lava for a night, Tom decided to keep him as a pet to experiment with. He made Bob screw a hornet's nest, get eaten alive by ants, get gang raped, get dropped from the Twin Towers, be drowned, and get his balls crushed, among other tortures. He created a feedback loop in Dream Weaver. Starting with a pin prick on Bob's finger, it grew exponentially into infinite pain. This solved the puzzle buried within Dream Weaver, opened a door to Hell, and summoned the Cenobite Leo. Tom was taken to Hell by Leo.

Dream Weaver
A virtual reality machine that is "capable of all normal human sensations, but is not limited to those" by translating "sensory input into what the subject will believe to be reality." It is "an enigma -- let the man who operates it discover for himself the key that unlocks the puzzle." It was created by Leo Marks and then given to Amtech. Amtech created the Dreamweave company around its technology. It contained a puzzle that would open the door to Hell.
