Welcome to LC #35! I, Ysim, will be your host this round. I hope this challenge will be fun and exciting for everyone, and will help you all bring your skills to the next level!


The LC is a method that has been carried out in order to motivate participants in their quests for lucidity and provide them with short-term goals that will hopefully be interesting and enjoyable. It is an opportunity for lucid dreamers to improve their dream-skills and creativity, while also competing with other dreamers for the chance to host the next LC.

The following are the rules.


LD Points

You get these just for having an LD! You do not have to complete a task to get these, so post any and every lucid experience!

Points awarded for each dream:
- You wonder if you're dreaming. + 5pts
- You become lucid but wake up shortly after or lose lucidity very quickly (generally 30 seconds or less for most dreamers). + 10pts
- Short LD: You have whatever you would consider to be short according to typical LD's you've had in the past. + 20pts
- Medium/Average LD: You have what you would consider a medium length LD. This should be the average length of most of your dreams up to this point. + 30pts
- Long LD: You have what you would consider a long LD. + 40pts

Everybody is to provide an average length on signup (unless you have never had an LD before), and point calculating will be done accordingly.

For those who have never had a lucid dream before, there will be no short LD option. Dreams over 30 seconds and less than 5 minutes will be considered medium length, and dreams over 5 minutes will be considered long LDs.

A dream is considered a single one until you get out of bed and/or write down your dreams.

If you have your first lucid dream while the Challenge is running you will get +75 points!

If you become lucid through a technique you never succeeded with before, I will also award +50 bonus points to you. If you're about to try a new technique, or are simply new to lucid dreaming and want to find out which technique suits you best, this is your chance. However, these extra points are not awarded for your first ever lucid dream. (Please be clear about this when you report your dream, because I don't want an extra entry in the signup form for each technique succeeded with so far.)

As you can see, this scoring system is very subjective. This is because different people have different average lengths for lucid dreams. What one person may consider short (5 minutes) may be someone else's medium, and so on. This is so people can work on improving their own personal bests. It encourages the more advanced LD'ers to work hard too. To help you get a definite idea of what your usual duration is, you must post your average (or medium) LD time when you sign up.

Chaining and regaining lucidity: Every time you chain or get back your lucidity from having lost it, you are awarded 5 points. However, the new LD is counted as a continuation of the previous one; so, for example, you can have a medium LD, then chain and raise the LD score to that of a long one.


Task Points

These are the points you are awarded for attempting, and completing, the various tasks. You do not have to be lucid to complete a task, but you will earn the most points while lucid. Each task will have different ways of rewarding points, and they will be explained as each task is posted.

You will earn points for completing the tasks as they are set, but you might earn more points if you do it in your personal style or as part of achieving one of your own goals. I can also award bonus points for outstanding creativity or spectacular solutions, but no more than 10 points per night and person.

Any task can be attempted any number of times; however, the scores are not cumulative among the same task. Only the best score is awarded for each one. (Example: You earn 50 points on first attempt but only 20 on the second. You will only earn points from the first.)

For each task, the following bonuses can be awarded:
+30 lucid points (for any task accomplished while lucid; this is separate from LD points)
+20 early points (for completing the last task active when you go to sleep)
+10 creativity points (for using creative solutions in your LDs)



Base idea for awarding points in each task:
Generally, points for each task will be assigned as follows:

1. Completing the basic task. (30-50 pts)
2. Completing secondary tasks. (10-50 pts)
3. Points earned per action or variation. (5-20 pts per tick)


Quest Points

The monthly Quest counts as a task, and awards 50 points for completion.


Personal Goal/Task

When you sign up, also give your personal task(s). That is, a task that is one of your goals for LD'ing. I will award up to 120 points in total per person for completing your tasks.

If you submit one personal goal, you will earn 120 points for completing it. This cannot be repeated. If you submit several goals, you will get 120 points divided by the number of tasks you submit for each one that you complete. For example, if you have five goals, completing one will award you 24 points.

Be careful, personal goals and average LD lengths cannot be changed while the challenge runs.


Deadlines and Calculation

New tasks will be posted on Fridays (exact time TBD). I will accept entries as late as exactly one day after the next task is posted for early points. The reason for this is the variation in time zones between LD4all members.

If you have any questions about deadlines, please PM me.

You have two options for the point calculation process:
You either write whole dreams here or post a link to your online DJ.
Or you can just specify which basic task and secondary tasks and repetitions you completed, and your points will be calculated accordingly. However, by doing this, you will lose your chance of getting creativity bonus points.

Don't worry about the point calculations, I will be calculating all the scores. (It is required, given the possibility of bonus points.)

If you feel I made an error in points, please PM me immediately and I will either explain or correct. We are here to have fun, so if you and I disagree on how many points you have earned, please do not make a scene. If you don't like how I award points, then win the LC so you can make up your own rules!

As per tradition, the Challenge will be open to up to 20 participants with a minimum of 10. When the minimum amount is reached, the first task will be posted as soon as possible.

This challenge will last for six weeks, one task per week.

I'll allow signups after the first task is posted, but not if this means we reach more than 20 participants.

3. Mason; About six minutes; (1)I'd like to completely become a dragon, because I like transformation, and (2) to help with my ability to travel, and for something really silly, I think I should attempt to dive into the sun.

I get lucid a lot now, but I haven't gotten much of what I set out to do done. I hope this helps me change it c:

My 2 and 3 are really the same thing. I can't dive into the sun if I have poor travel abilities. You know?

I'm just fixing what I intended my goal to be for... "Help with ability to travel" was never supposed to be different from "Dive into the sun", so I just removed that part of the description.

I may suggest allow competitors with multiple personal goals to share their 120 personal goal points awards according to their preference.
If allowed, I would give myself 40 points for first goal, 30 for second goal, and 50 for third.

I am having super issues with copy/paste and chrome, sorry for no official post, but i will be entering the LC as participant #10!

Goal=Update my DJ

And average LD time is 20-30 min

#16:  Author: DaveTheJoker PostPosted: Fri 17 Aug, 2012

I have no idea how to do this fancy list thing (it's late at night smile) but put me down as #11!

EDIT:

My lucid goal is to ask a DC if I am dreaming. My average LD time is about 10 seconds. (I have had 13 lucids, but all but one of them lasted a few seconds) We can change the average to something bigger if you want I dunno.

Alright, signups are closed. I'll be starting the challenge on Friday, probably in the early afternoon my time (GMT - 5). Will update the first post in just a moment.

This would also be a good time to review your goal. Make sure it's feasible, but not too easy. Also remember that the more goals you have, the less each is worth.

Task 1 - Steal That Hat!

Hats? Who doesn't love hats? But you know what? People rarely have hat's when they become lucid. So for your first task, steal a hat from a DC.

Find a DC with a hat - 5pts
Attempt to take the hat, but fail - 5pts
Successfully take the hat, but lose it soon after - 20 pts
Successfully take the hat - 30pts
Find out it's a special hat - 5pts
(eg: Mario's winged hat, or that there's a key inside the brim)
Use said "bonus"/special ability - 15pts


Where else the hat takes you could be an interesting adventure tounge2

This task will close next Saturday at 18:00 GMT, when the next task is posted.

My first LD since the contest started:
http://ld4all.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=687025#687025
I would classify it as a very short LD. I do not think I made it to a minute of being lucid this time. Neither my grandmother, the insane teenager, or I were wearing hats, and I lost all clothes at some point anyway.

#28:  Author: DaveTheJoker PostPosted: Tue 11 Sep, 2012

WOW I got lucky! I had my first LD in 4 months last night. I didn't even know the LC had started! Put my dream in the Spoiler Tags. This LD is long for ME, I about a minute, but we can mark it as average because it is still short by most standards. This was also my first time using lucid commands, or having any sort of dream control at all (even though it was minimal). Thanks!

All right, cool to see this contest cranked up! Good luck everyone.

Achieved last night:
Short LD

This LD lasted about 3 minutes, just shy of my average of 4. Therefore, I'll classify it as "short".

I wanned to incubate how I meet 11th Doctor and take his "fezz", whatever way it is spelled. But ended up being that Doctor myself. And there were plenty of V. van Gogh's hats there. Finally I made at least 2 dc's to wear it, also did that myself. During dream, I believe, EVERY part of the task happened at least once, except for hat being somewhat magical. And I wasn't lucid, yet, had some control.

Can I still join? tounge1 (I know it already started but I don't mind being a few days behind)

Edit: I find it very hard to judge how long a dream is. I guess my average is about 3 minutes. My personal goal would be to bend the elements in a LD (so like shooting fire from my hand, make a wall of water, let air lift me up and easily throw boulders around.)

Ansie, I can add you in, no problem. You can start with this first task, I'll count anything you post after this as being towards it.

Koharo, just need a goal and average dream length, then I'll add you in. Just try to get that to me before I announce the second task on Saturday.

After this though, no more new entries, I think 15 is a good number

Just under 40 hours left until I post the next task; tallying of scores will come shortly thereafter.

#40:  Author: Koharo PostPosted: Fri 14 Sep, 2012

I couldnt really calculate my LD time I'll go out on a limb and say my average is 4-5 minutes.

My LD goal for this event is to shuffle (the dance).

I became lucid when I saw that my feet were highly distorted. Unfortunately, I got excited and woke up within just a few seconds.

I think this fits the description of "You become lucid but wake up shortly after or lose lucidity very quickly"

#43:  Author: Rhewin PostPosted: Fri 14 Sep, 2012

Task 3: The Dreamternet!

The internet is probably THE marvel of the modern world. It has a virtually unlimited potential to expand, too. So what does the internet in our dreams contain?

Find a connection to the internet (ie: a computer/smart phone/etc)- 5 pts
Connect to the internet - 10 pts
View some webpages, chats, or something - 20
View something above and beyond the real internet's capabilities - 10
Create an internet location (website, chat, other?) - 20

I fully anticipate the internet to be something more than just text and images displayed on a monitor, so terms like "webpage" and "chatroom" may not exactly be the most fitting, but I think they get the idea across. Good luck on your cyber dreams! :D

#61:  Author: Ansie PostPosted: Mon 24 Sep, 2012

Let's ask again, does it make sense point wise to also do the previous tasks?

Yesterday I had a dream in which I questioned reality, and I was convinced it wasn't real, but I didn't realise it was a dream and I lost the realisation that it was not real after 2 min or so. (I am not sure if this scores me points or not, but I wanted to mention it anyways tounge1)

#62:  Author: Ysim PostPosted: Mon 24 Sep, 2012

Oh, sorry Ansie, meant to answer that...

Yes, you can still get points for old tasks, however you miss out on the 20 point bonus for doing the current task.

I'd consider it a medium LD

Sorry i don't know how to link directly to a post, but it's at the bottom, the last dream i had.

also... does the tornado effect thing that happened count as a wormhole? because that's kindof what it looked like.

ah but i didn't sign up... sadblauw

Use the link in front of: Posted date, year, time. It is a small piece of paper at the top left of the post tounge2

E-mail notification on this topic fails for me for some reason, so I never read the 4th task and I also didn´t read this months Quest which I regretted in my LD this night. I did however have a long dream in which I did task 3 and 2. I will post the details later when I have time and when I have my DJ. I am just happy to have this very lucid dream after so many nights of no recall smile (There was also an internet cafe owned by Ysim in the dream XD)

First, an average-length lucid dream from two nights ago.

Next, another average-length lucid dream where I believe that I accomplished the following:
-Travel through space - 20 pts (Note: I exited Earth's atmosphere and made it into space. Once I got into space, I started floundering without traveling very far. I hope that this still counts, but it's of course totally up to the organizer to decide!)

I have not had enough time on a computer to tally up points, etc, for the past several days. HvZ started last weekend and I am now one of the few human survivors. I'll post the new task and hopefully a tally of points Sunday night, after the endgame mission.

To say the least, this game is far more intense than I expected it to be.

I had a short LD and technically completed one of my personal tasks.

By technically completed, I mean I completed the CALD task, but I don't really practice CALD much anymore. However, Kayleigh did try to help me with CALD when I was still doing it, and she does still occasionally try to help me with LDing, so I think this counts, right?

Task 5 - Speak with Nature

Nature can tell us plenty of interesting things, if we just know how to listen. Try to listen and follow what you are told.

Hear animals speaking - 5 pts
Hear plants speaking - 10 pts
Speak directly with an animal - 10 pts each (up to 50 pts)
Speak directly with a plant - 15 pts each (up to 75 pts)


You get points once if you hear them speaking in general, but get points for each individual one you have some conversation with.

I will hopefully finish tallying scores in the morning >.<

I wasn't lucid, and it was by chance, but there was a talking animal in my dream last night. Granted, the person who spoke began the dream human, and ended it human, but the one time he spoke was as a shark.

Probably doesn't count because I had the dream before knowing about the task, but I figure to post it anyway.

I had a short lucid dream:

And an average length lucid dream. In this dream, while unaware of the talking nature task, unintentionally accomplished a couple of additional goals. Since I was unaware of the task before accidentally completing part of it, I of course understand if I can't be awarded points:
Hear animals speaking
Speak directly with an animal

I had like a ten second lucid dream from a WILD where I planned to do my Dive into the Sun task. I acted too fiercely and without stabilizing the dream, so it was very very short.

Edit: And another short LD. http://ld4all.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=690044#690044
I did not attempt any task.
I could probably get a long LD by not trying to do anything and just walk around. :I

In other words my new score is 480 and not 570.
