ND Challenge 5
PostPosted: Mon 24 Sep, 2012  Reply with quote

Welcome to the Fifth Normal Dream Challenge of LD4all!

A challenge to test and improve dream recall, quality and clarity of recorded dreams, as well as the ability to incubate non-lucid dreams. It also serves as an encouragement to read others' Dream Journals and vice versa.

History
ND Challenge 1 - TM and Initiator: Dreamjutsu - Winner: Ysim
ND Challenge 2 - TM: Ysim - Winner: moogle
ND Challenge 3 - TM: moogle and Eilatan - Winner: MagykKatte
ND Challenge 4 - TM: MagykKatte and Ysim - Winner: Eilatan
ND Challenge 5 - TM: Eilatan - Winner: Fate

Here are the rules:
-----------------------------

Points:
5 points for recalling fragments
10 points per ND recalled
15 points per LD recalled
5 points per successful chain
25 points per personal challenge incubated dream
25 points per late incubation task dream
40 points per current incubation task dream
15 points per dream of the current incubation task done while lucid
10 points per dream of personal challenge done while lucid
5 points for late task done while lucid


In addition at the end of each task, discretionary points will be given for standards of dream recall and weird incubation.


There will be 7 Incubation Tasks, announced twice a week, with the first and last tasks having each a week of their own. Your goals overall are to recall and record dreams in detail, and to have a dream about the current or past tasks.
You may also choose a personal challenge. Please pre-state your personal challenge upon signup. Once you have completed your challenge you may choose a new one.

Please put a link to your DJ when you sign up. If you do not have a Dream Journal on LD4all, start one, it is a great habit. You may create a temporary DJ in the Dream Journal forum. If you wish to make it truly temporary, just contact a moderator after the challenge to have it removed.
Only dreams had DURING the course of the challenge are eligible for points. It may be a good idea to make a comment in your DJ of where your first ND Challenge Dream begins.

At the end of each task, 15 bonus discretionary points will be given by Eilatan for:
  • Standard of dream recall
  • Weirdest incorporation of task within the dream


Example of Points:

Recall and task: For every ND recalled, you are awarded 10 points. If that dream completes your personal challenge, or a late task, you get an extra 25 points. If you complete the current task, you gain an extra of 40 points.
Please note: A lucid dream recalled will get you 15 points; however, as this is an incubation challenge, creating the task after becoming lucid will only gain you an extra 15 points, 10 extra points for your own personal task, or 5 points for a late task. This is not to penalize you for being lucid, but the ND Challenge is about dream incubation, not lucidity.

Fragments: If you wake up and only recall dream fragments, you will be given 5 points even if all fragments are from different dreams/snippets. The taskmaster, however, reserves the right to double that to 10 points should there be an excessive amount of fragments.

Chaining: If you wake from a dream and immediately re-enter it (regardless of lucidity) you will be granted 5 extra points. This goes for whether you normal dream chain, or lucid dream chain back into a dream you just woke from. This will be counted as a separate dream from the first, and you will be awarded points on recall accordingly.

Overall: If you had 2 ND's, and one completed the current task, you have 60 points (40 for task, 10 each ND). If one night you woke recalling fragments, you would have 65 points (5 points for fragments). If you then took a nap and chained an ND into a LD you would sit at 95 points (10 points for recalling an ND, 5 points for chaining, 15 points for recalling an LD). If for that task, the Taskmaster decided you achieved the task in the weirdest way, you will get an extra 15 points for a total of 110 points.


If you have any questions please ask.

  9. Sandra - Sandra's garden of dreams - vijf - Dream recall

Actually my personal goal would be to get my dream recall back. I haven't put much (scratch that, I haven't put any) effort into that lately so I thought maybe this ND challenge will help me with that too. It may motivate me to keep my DJ up and running.

If that doesn't count as a personal challenge, I would say have a symbolic dream I keep wondering about. The reason I say this is because recently I was reading on the last pages of my DJ here and I remembered how interesting it was. It's interesting to wonder about and they're interesting to record. Obviously many dreams can have this, but some have this more than other. Maybe because this is rather subjective you wouldn't approve of it either.

So if you think these previous two goals aren't specific enough or too subjective, my goal would be to (re)visit/experience death in any form or shape.

p.s. I know the link is missing, it's because the part doesn't exist yet. I will post it in this topic when I create it.

Wow so many people signing up. I will leave this sign up list for a few more days or so, there are regular NDC players that would probably be upset if they missed out on signing up. I am more than happy to take more than 10 participants.

Sandra, I'm not sure that having dream recall as a personal goal would work, as people are awarded extra points for personal goals and already get points for recall. Though, your symbolic dream goal would be acceptable.

Wait. if we win this do we have to host the next one? Not likely I'll win, but if I did, I don't think I would be up to hosting it.
