Just got in there with some writeups.

They are not as full as usual for my own style of diary, but I'll add those when I get the chance.

EDIT: And thanks to the hosts! They were very clear but very entertaining tasks. Happy birthday moogle! I hope it was a fantastic day.

blon NDC 13 IS NOW OVER blon


And the winner is:

EVERYONE!

Congratulations everyone! You did it! You made it here, to the end of the 13th Normal Dreaming Challenge. What an amazing five weeks it has been!

Did you know that (with the exception of a participant dropping out early due to RL), every single one of you managed to gain points this challenge? rechterduim omhoog met knipoog

In fact, during this challenge 249 dreams were recorded! That doesn't include the 82 days that fragments were recorded!

And amongst all this dreaming, 60 tasks were completed! boogie

Wow! You are all so amazing! Give yourselves a hand for being such wonderful participants! applaus

To us, you are all winners and we are so proud of all of you! hurray


"But wait, Eilatan," I hear you say, "Who got the most points?"

Okay, okay, I see you are bored by my moment, but how can I properly express how amazing this NDC has been? Moogle and I set out to create some fun, but we could never anticipate how much you all would enjoy it. We definitely never anticipated so many precogs of the tasks! kiekeboe But this just make things all the more fun! (Or is that "funny"? lach2 )

But now I really am just delaying, so without further ado:

Jump in your transport and let's head over to the scores!

----------- Rhewin ----------- ----------- -----------


Final Scores
  1. EarthlyInspired ------ 822
  2. Susan_Y ----------- 720
  3. Obfusc8 ------------- 625

  10. Majah ---------------- 90
  11. Letaali --------------- 60
  12. Koal ------------------ 25

Congratulations EarthlyInspired, the winner of NDC 13! party3

As per NDC tradition, EarthlyInspired can choose to host NDC14 or pass it on to Susan_Y and so on and so forth.


Moogle and I would like to say a huge thanks to all of you for participating. This has been a great NDC and we hope to see you again in future adventures!

Wow, congratulations everyone! There were so many impressive dreams along the way, reading them was like being subscribed to a short story anthology. And I think everyone completed at least one task in a totally unexpected way. I hope we'll all get together again for the LC, too!

Yayy, congratulations everyone!! I had so much fun in my first ever NDC challenge. These challenges are such a great way to help improve fundamental dream skills such as recall, and therefore help in our quests for lucid dreams as well. And I love the community feel of being part of such an awesome group of dreamers!

I would be honoured to host the next NDC. However, I do have one concern. Currently, real life has become unusually hectic and has been keeping me very busy. I expect to be back into routine by next month though, and would be happy to host then. If the NDC is expected to run sooner, then I would like to offer the opportunity to Susan_Y, provided she is interested. I would not be able to give adequate attention to the challenge in the near future, and I don’t want to provide anything less than the awesome coordination that Eilatan and Moogle have shown for this challenge.

So I guess my question is: When is the next NDC expected to take place?

EarthlyInspired, NDC usually runs on average twice a year (and sometimes once). It pays to plan the tasks and scoring before beginning the sign up topic. So relax and just keep us informed in this topic. grin

I really enjoyed NDC13 .... though a tad disappointed that we didn't get a werewolf in space dream. lach2

Dear all,

I am just back to congratulate the winner and the hosts.

We just had a winner reaching over 800 points while the top three are all above 500.

It's the second NDC from the same hosts. They were the first to initiate the cohosting in NDC. This new NDC shows their experience and how cohosting can work well.

This is officially the most active NDC in history of LD4all.
No other NDC has ever reached 20 pages.
There were 13 participants who had more than zero points, which is also historical.

Congratulations to everyone who participated as well.
This would not reach its results without you.

Thank you.

Congratulations to EarthlyInspired, Susan_Y, Obfusc8 and everyone else, and big thanks to Eilatan and moogle for their effort! My apologies that I seemed to have vanished around week 3, the start of my semester was extremely busy but luckily it's better now.


Current LD goal(s): More space exploration!

So yesterday. Would you believe that I found an old bike in the woods behind an old cabin! I thought FOR SURE it was a dream...

this is wonderful! i hope youll update us on the bike as you spruce it up.


Thanks! She's a rare beauty this one, complete with moss on the handlebars and everything. lach1
I greased up all the chains and bought a little tire pump for it on the weekend. The tires have held air ridiculously well considering they look like that are slowly deteriorating.
I took Incubation Bike out on her maiden voyage that day. I would make it about ten feet before the chain would jump off the gears and jam into the contraption at the back tire haha. I kept putting it back on but the gear shifters don't work (can't figure out why other than age haha) and the chain seems a bit too long. I fiddled around with things and found a nice calibration where if the chain stays on the smallest gear, it wont jump off. It was great! My dog and I went for a couple km, and it sailed like a dream.

You'd think all this bike tweaking would leak into my dreams but no! Still no dream bikes! cry

Hope we get to see a photo of the famous bike grin

By the way everyone, even though NDC is over, feel free to post late tasks in here for fun. smile

As usual, a task showed up in a dream shortly after the challenge had ended: I ride an underground train in this non-lucid dream

For readers who don't know the UK rail network: given that the building across the street from the underground station looks like St. Pancras, the underground station is presumably King's Cross, despite the street sign of the entirely fictional Acadia Street in the dream.

And for readers who don't know the UK rail network but have read the Harry Potter books, this would imply that Kings Cross platform 9 3/4 is just behind me.
