I had a DILD with 3 DEILDs chained together for a long ld, where i flew aroung and completed no tasks. After a 20 min wbtb I Had 6-7 more for another long length. I stretched out a butterknife, and played it like a guitar. I flew around a stadium, with my wings playing this guitar for a couple of my friends It played evry note I thought of.

Very short LD. Is the limit still 30 seconds? I'm not sure if it was more than that, or not.

The third dream here is my longest LD ever and has several tasks. I try to bring my plush to life but "fail" when the dream provides an alternate explanation. I later start music in a dreamscape and then change that music to different music. I tame a group of rowdy orangutans when I unexpectedly transform into one and teach them to swim. A human DC turns himself into a hedgehog plush, which I then turn into a miniature version of my avatar, so I brought a toy animal to life and transformed a DC into an animal (and if only one of these counts at a time, I brought a small figurine to life later).

I'm pretty happy with myself. The only thing that frustrated me is, well...
<Thorn> I guess what has me angry or sad or something is that I caught the dream fading and fixed it not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES this morning
<Thorn> but because of DEILD, that's worth nothing; it's actually worth more to let it end and restart it
Saving the dream was a stupid decision on my part. I really should've just let the LD end once and re-entered for the chain bonus and "first time using a technique" bonus, but meh; I'll find those 60 points elsewhere. That, or I'll visit drd and Scipio in their homes and start shaking them when they try to DEILD. Either works. wink

Also, the second ND at that link has my pets being "found" as in the task description, in case the brief glimpse at them I claimed before doesn't count.

Had a short lucid yesterday.. I say short because I can't remember some parts from the way I woke up. I did my personal task of creating stars by singing. Didn't turn out the way I intended it too, oh well. tounge2

@drd: wow, sounds like this was your week! Points, points everywhere!

@Scipio: close only counts in horse shoes and hand grenades tounge2

@Siiw: there are no longer any "very short" LDs, they simply count as short. The only time it wouldn't count as a LD for scoring purposes would be if you woke up while still questioning if you are dreaming.

@Thorn: somehow the image of you as a monkey is fitting lach1

Scores are updated

If you have anything that could count for your team advantage, you have just over an hour to get it posted!

Team Participation*
Transformation: 17.6% (2.1 tasks per member)
Investigation: 4.7% (.57 tasks per member)
Creation: 4.2% (.5 tasks per member)

*Participation rates calculated by the number of tasks completed by a team divided by the number of members on the team. Average number of tasks is then divided by total number of tasks. 100% participation is 12 tasks per member in Tasks 2-4

Medium LD.

Tamed animals in my dream (made them into Nazi bunnies)
Talked with animals (Told them to mate and they responded tounge1)

My second personal task was also kiiinda done, but I'm not satisfied. There were no SQUIDS! Not gonna count that.

Yea, I know Rhewin. Just a little frustrated that I came really close to doing it and was robbed of my chance to swim.

As to today, a short LD, no tasks. It was a very low level lucid and I didn't have a strong grasp of my thinking capabilities to do anything more than run on instinct and follow the plot.

Task 3 - Technology!

Isn't technology great? It's improved our lives in a lot of ways, and it seems like there's always more coming out. Technology in dreams can get even crazier. After all, anything is possible. This week, we're going to explore the world of dream technology. And while it's easy to think of technology as meaning electronics, technology has been around for centuries. In fact, some technology lets us see the centuries.

Also, you'll notice now that team tasks are now worth more in general. No more freebies, you'll have to really work for these.

Use an electronic device (smart phone, computer, etc.) 20pts
Use an outdated piece of technology (steam powered, water powered, etc.) 20pts: to be clear, the power source doesn't matter. It just needs to be something that is now obsolete and not in common use. So yes, an abacus counts. But a TI-83 does not. Don't blame me, blame TI for never updating anything.

Use a 3D printer to make something 30pts: I don't care how you make the printer work or if it's actually a real-life model, just make it happen.
Build your very own robot out of whatever is laying around 40pts: it could be made out of anything, so long as it can move and do things on its own.

Ask a computer the answer to life, the universe, and everything 30pts: ok, it doesn't have to be a computer. Just some kind of sentient technology works.
Go into the internet 40pts: exploring cyberspace is the easy part. Getting in is tricky. I'll suggest going in through a computer monitor.

Turn a DC into a robot 30pts: this should be obvious, but turning a DC into a robot does not count as building one for the creation task.
Use technology in a way it's not intended 40pts: cook some food in the refrigerator, mow the lawn with your TV, sit down and relax while watching the World Cup on the radio. I dunno. Surprise me.

Task 3 Team Tasks

Creation: your team is going to make an invention this round. It's up to you to decide what your invention is supposed to do. You don't need to all use the same components, but all of your inventions should have the same function. Remember to get one of your team mates to help build it!

Investigation: it's time for time! It's Rhewin, you know that I have to do some kind of time travel. Pick what time period you'd like to go to, and, with a team member, check out some of the technology of the time. Getting to the time period is the important part, it's ok if the tech isn't exactly historically accurate. This is especially true if you pick the future.

Transformation: upgrade time. You're going to give yourself and a team mate cybernetic enhancements. Your team needs to pick out what enhancement you want. Then, in a dream, give yourself and a team member the enhancement. You only need to decide what the enhancement does, you can figure out the how in your dream.

Transformation Advantage

Transformation Team! You have won the advantage for Task 3! This week you can create your own task as long as it involves transformation and is based on this phrase: Giant Robots.

You have 48 hours to create the task or I'll make one for you. Transformation can include a lot of things. You can change yourself, DCs, the environment, whatever. Think creatively... or... transformationaly.

ARGH! I used a spinning wheel in a dream, before I had read the task! This is getting ridiculous. 8P

#145:  Author: obfusc8 PostPosted: Thu 03 Jul, 2014
Does this count as taming an animal? From last night (Pre Task 3), normal dream:

I squeeze into a narrow alley, scaring a bird that flutters away. As I continue down the alleyway, which is full of boulders and overhanging trees that I negotiate my way past, the little bird repeatedly flies away as I get close. Eventually I reach the end of the alley and the bird sits on my arm. It looks like the bird is made of ice. It sings in a very high pitched voice.

I also hugged a grey seal... whatsthat

Had a brief 45 second LD here where I ended up in the world of Legends of Treasure Island (cartoon version which aired on CITV in 1993-1994). If you're not familiar with it, here's some nightmare fuel from it that freaked me out when it first aired. :D

-Med LD
-Task 3: Used an electronic device while lucid
-Regained lucidity

#148:  Author: Thorn PostPosted: Thu 03 Jul, 2014
The second dream here is a medium-length lucid dream with no tasks done (unless an automatic door counts as an electronic device, but I highly doubt that~). The third dream at that link is an ND in which I use a computer. I don't think e-mail was intended to be used to communicate with somebody from a distance of 20 feet apart, but I know that's not in the spirit of the task.

@Siiw: eepeth! I've decided you use AP to get on the forum at night and check the task, but then you forget about it the next morning

@obfusc8: sure

@james_uk2008: I wasn't planning on sleeping tonight anyway >.<

@Koharo: O.o that was quick

@ Thorn: no. No it isn't. So there.


Inactive players
A couple of members have not contributed since the first day. These players will be marked as inactive (i) on the score sheet. They will not count toward the team advantage until the become active again. To become active, they only need to get points on the board. LD points, quest points, whatever. They just need to do anything and they'll be back at active status.

Note that this does not mean people with low scores or no points, only people who have not contributed to their teams or to the LC in any meaningful way.

And now for something different
Alright, it looks like all of you are getting the idea of how team tasks work. Now to make things a little MOAR interesting.

This week's winning team will get a bit more than just an extra task. In addition to the advantage task, the winners will have the rules bent in their favor. Indeed, losing this week would be quite... unfortunate.

You see, this week's winner gets to pick from...

gil Rhawin's Wheel of Misfortuneebil

Rhawin laughs at your misfortune

I will bend the rules for this week's winners in one of the three ways below. Before the week is up, your team must decide on one of them (don't tell the other two what you decided! Seriously!). Once Task 4 starts, I will bend the rules however the winners have asked.

If your team does not pick an advantage by the end of the week, or if any of your members tell the other groups what you have picked, Rhawin won't be happy. You don't want to see Rhawin unhappy.

So what are these choices?

1. Players must complete the Advantage Task before attempting any other Team Tasks
This is a great way to slow down your competition. They have to do your own, specially created task before doing anything else. However, this means you also have to do your own, specially created task before doing anything else. But that shouldn't be a problem... right?

2. For this task only, all of the winning team's Team Tasks are worth an additional +20pts.
This includes previous Team Tasks. However, the competition also gets an additional +20pts for doing your Team Tasks.

3. Two Teams trade places
The winning team can trade the places of two of our teams. They could switch the other two teams, or they could switch themselves with one of the others. You could really trip up some people with this. Be careful, you might make things easier on some people too.

It's super mysterious... and fun! Or you could pick this and give it to another team.

Scores are updated

Edit: by Team Tasks, I mean the tasks your team votes on, not the ones I create.

I used a calculator as a gaming device in a non-lucid dream. It kept changing while I used it. It had an xbox logo at one point and two screens like 3DS and the interface was controlled with eyes etc. I found it annoyingly hard to use.
