I have had dreams, but they have been unpostable because of their personal themes involving other, real, people. There was a conversation between me and a DC about how to properly learn several different kinds of magic and actually be able to use both at the same time, but I don't think it includes anything that hasn't been in my dreams earlier.

I've graded everything up until this point. Remember that I'm allowing people to post any dreams that were had before Tuesday, November 26, 2:50 PM EST, but I'll stop accepting submissions 24 hours after this deadline. That said, first-place is looking pretty deadlocked right now.

Scores are updated. Submit whatever you have left!

4. LDbc12 (1153)
5. Scipio Xaos (854)

18. Loah, Faith42 (30)
20. demented (15)
21. Mew151, squoak, Ecila6, Catt, SlyRaccoon (0)

Congratulations to Koharo on his victory! party3 Koharo, you have the option of running LC 40, passing things off to HeadInTheClouds (who can pass things off to BrandonBoss, and so on and so forth), making some sort of collaborative effort between you and the people ranking below you, or whatever you want to do. You have the reins right now! Post and let us know your plans!

I didn't have the grand set-up for a conclusion that Scipio had in the last LC, but I did talk to some people (Scipio and ian1) to discuss the LC in general. If anybody wants to tune in, our conversation is available here unedited. Hopefully this is helpful in deciding how to structure LC 40. I also apologize if we misinterpreted anybody's dreams or thought processes in our conversation; no offense is meant by any commentary. I also apologize for referencing HeadInTheClouds constantly, but to be fair, he did devote himself to the tasks in his LDs almost every time, so he provided the most material.

Thanks to everybody who participated and for all of the feedback! I hope that you all manage the goals that went unfinished during the LC — people even changed their avatars to reflect their goals, and there were so many fun ideas that went untouched that I hope you all get to experience.

HeadInTheClouds, I hope I didn't sound like I was somehow chewing you out for LC 37's format or anything. That's not my intent at all, especially now that I've realized that no matter how it gets scored, an invasion of "proficient" dreamers will skew the scores. I also openly admit that I didn't get everything right this LC on the first try; I hope that given how the last three LCs changed how things worked, the next one will refine it further and improve upon the things that worked.

I do hope to see more adventures of HulkInTheClouds; as I said in the video, it was a definite change from your sign-up saying you didn't have a particular form to use. I half-expect a task to be about gamma rays if Koharo passes along hosting duty. I'll also second what you said about the spreadsheet; while there should be a download link at the top of the LC 39 spreadsheet to let the host make a template out of it, I'll happily pass it along if that doesn't work.

Scores are upd- wait, I don't have to say that anymore!

@HITC Thanks. Your style and creativity has influenced me to change up some of my methods. Pretty BA how you were able to pull ahead by completing the bonus, complete multiple tasks in a single dream on multiple occasions, and pull ahead to the top three with a high task point ratio. Both you and BrandonBoss really gave me a run for my money and kept me on my toes.

@Thorn Thanks especially for making the LC fun and exciting, like HITC said before, and remaining committed pulling the conflicts faced IRL.
The LC was pretty epic. Having a miniature profile, the location and desired form to name a couple, with sign ups to play a vital role in a future task (keeps some guessing), then the group incubations involving other partner/rival LC contestants making it more interactive, and last but not least the potion bonus which was pretty fun. Having to guess the potion's ability while limited to 20 yes/no questions, retrieving a potion in the dream from a limited supply, and having to complete one task to unlock the next requiring you to continue where you left off to some extent and once again keeps the contestant guessing.

LC 40...

Heh...Of the two LC's of which I have competed, or from what I've seen on the list of previous LCs, I don't recall there being multiple hosts for a single LC...
biggrin ...But that decision, if having multiple hosts is possible, I will leave to HITC. With that said, LC 40 is in your hands if you choose to accept. Best of luck to the future contestants.

Well, as it's your win, I don't see why not. I only brought that up because I'd considered it myself in the past. In LC 37, the eighth week started with a near-tie between me, Scipio, and Gwee, with every other competitor way behind. I had decided that if I won, I was going to host three tasks and ask Scipio and Gwee if they wanted to each have two. Of course, Scipio won and that opportunity didn't come, but I don't see why it would be impossible.

In any case, if you're leaving the decision to HeadInTheClouds, then we'll just wait for his post. smile

@Koharo Congrats to the winner! You are a beast Koharo, and I really like your fighting style. I haven't updated in a while because I simply had nothing to update. My lucidity took a dip, so dont think I was lazy and didnt post and you pulled ahead there, you kicked a---butt. tounge2 i am back now though and am going to be doing some major exploring of my dream world, some of the things you have said have inspired me to think of the dreamworld as completely different will clarify in PM. tounge2

@ Thorn. Thanks for running the competition it was awesome fun. I normally dont do goals in dream as often as I did, but when I became lucid last night, my first thought was to find a goal. I was immediately sad that the comp was over sadblauw. I did fight that crazy witch though. This has made me better at doing things, very worth it. I am going to get even better.

@hitc
Holy crap! Good job man! Way to show up man. Keep up LDing.

@everyone
Never stop LDing.

@Siiw Thanks!

@Thorn Alright. If the conditions are right I'll consider doing so.

@BrandonBoss Thanks man! Heh didn't doubt you for a second man it happens. Glad to have you back on the scene, can't wait to see how the new prospective will work for you looking forward to the new reads, and congrats taking care of the witch.

@Thorn
I didn't think you were being overly negative about LC 37; I just wanted to explain why I changed the scoring.

As far as LC 40 goes, I am open to hosting it. I had been thinking of a similar idea to you Thorn should I have won. As the last three LCs were a big departure from LC 36 and earlier, I thought it would be interesting if you, Scipio Xaos, and I hosted the LC together and reformed the rules so that they can be a bit more stable and standardized going forward. I also wouldn't mind Koharo joining and creating a couple tasks, as he is the one who actually one this LC.

Koharo, Thorn, and Scipio Xaos, let me know what you guys think about this idea.

I am very busy for the next week, but I can have the next LC ready in about two weeks.

HeadInTheClouds, my concern is that LC hosting privileges go from the first-place person to second to third, etc. if people decline. If Scipio were to be involved in joint hosting, you'd need to convince BrandonBoss and LDbc12 to let it happen. In the same vein, I'm not sure I should be overly involved twice in a row. I'm definitely willing to help out behind the scenes with things like figuring out a scoring system or touching up shaky wording in tasks, but I shouldn't be inserting task ideas into LC 40.

I didn't think I'd open such a big can of worms with this. I figured Koharo would make a decision and this topic would fall silent.
