So, to make a character that reacts on its own, you basically have to roleplay with yourself?

I've done that all the time!! But I never thought of actually using them to help me lucid dream... Hmmmm...


Haha, well that's good ^^~
I've met a few people who have already started that part up-- :3~ It's-- I guess it's a form of roleplaying with yourself ^^;~ Interaction between you and your own character-- But the character is more automatic about it's responses, rather than being a puppet... tounge2
So I suppose-- yes, XD That sort of interaction does make them react on your own...

If you start up using them for lucid dreaming induction, could you give us updates as to your progress! I'm sure we'd all love to know ^^~

~Best of luck!

Three random characters (one already appeared to me in an LD long ago) came to mind last night and automatically gave me responses that I didn't force... Their names were Takra, Nemo, and Qual. I asked Qual to help me LD since he appeared in one before, but after I asked him we talked for a while and I pissed him off... so I guess that pretty much lost me my chance last night. lach1

i don't know if this has anything to do with it but...

well last night in HI i saw one of my RL friends, and since i was kinda MILDing although half awake i asked him if i was going to become lucid, and he said "oh, totally"

now i noticed that with my friends i could visualize them almost perfectly, and even match the voices perfectly, so i cycled though all the friends i hang out with a lot and did a bit of a MILD/CALD, although with real people.

I'm going to keep trying this because i feel it might go somewhere, i suppose it is a variation of CALD

if you havn't created your character to the teeth, try using real life people you are around a lot!

Anyway, like i said this method will require further testing but hey, last night was the first night i had good recall in awhile.

This whole dream character thingy kind of reminds me of the movies Paprika. I mean, "creating" a dream character based on your own alter ego.

^^~ Hmmm... i've never seen that movie, perhaps I should go and check it out O-o; :D

I know of one character here that was sort of like an alter ego, but not many past that-- :P But guess I can see the relation XD~

I wonder when i'll have a go-look-see... *Wonders*~ ^^~

Whoa! That sounds... O-o...

I think others on this thread can agree some of their characters might have had a sort of reply like that :3~

^^~ Well that's good, you're conciderate, at least! XD
I wouldn't really say such a thing to my characters purely for the fact that I can't really control them, just have the ability to stop them if needed O-o; XD~

:P Care to share?

XD But anyways-- that has to be the most straight-to-the point post I've seen here XD

Ha... The way characters are made on this thread, tends to lead to that reply, I think :P

Well since asking Emanuel, Felicia and Karma to help induce LDs I have got some pretty crazy dreams appearing. And I have had many moments when I have nearly become lucid.
Emanuel and Felicia have made themselves right at home in the castle. A couple of nights ago I went into Arveyas village, its really neat but totally ancient. Im also surprised at how many people there are just wandering around getting on with their lives in my brain. I can now roam freely in the meadows and hills of Arveya and am no longer always stuck on that god damn cliff. The castle is really huge and is situated in the mountains. Its ever changing and the corridors in it always lead to something new. My favourite room that always seems to be there is a semi circle room with huge windows looking out into the gardens. There a red velvet window seats and a huge fire. My characters and I use it for lucid stuff like trying to get me to LD and stuff.

Wow! Astraea, that sounds amazing ^^~ And I'm so happy to hear about the good progress with Emanual, Karma, and Felicia! ^^~ I like their names as well :D
Your castle sounds absoloutely charming! And the village seems beautiful ^^~ Your world of Arveya is definitely quite impressive, it seems so tranquil and calming~ ^^

I'm glad for all the good things happening! :D Things really seem to be going well ^^~

Good luck! Looking forward to good progress...
~Tal ^^~
