I chose the Pokemon task because most people are familiar with Pokemon, and with the recent events on Twitch, there's been a rekindled interest in it all around the web. The series has an anime, several movies, videos games, and a card game. It's been around for nearly 16 years.
This kind of theme is not unique to this LC, like said. There have been two Harry Potter themed tasks as well. Harry Potter has been around for nearly 17 years, so like Pokemon, it's pretty well known.
Even the last LC had a task where you had to have knowledge of horror movies. I hadn't even seen the movie I dreamt of. Hell, I don't even watch horror movies... or much movies in general.

I suppose this was my reasoning in making the task, but yes, in retrospect I can see how the task can be exclusionary. I won't change the theme of the task itself, but I've altered some of the subtasks.
At the end of the day, this task focuses heavily on specific incubation. It was made with the intention of being more difficult to accidentally have a ND about and is more challenging than finding something to ride (which is still worth +10 throughout the competition, the same amount as the first subtask). I will offer additional details for the some of the subtasks.
The next task will still be posted on Saturday 4PM EST, but early points for this task have been extended to Monday 4PM EST.

@demented: theoretically with the knowledge you have, you could have just found a pikachu and told it "attack" and attack another pikachu. Then you could have grabbed that pikachu, ran to another pikachu and whipped the pokemon at the other. Would have completed both Democracy and Anarchy mode. tounge2

... bwahahaha.

Anyhow... I've had two potentially good dreams...

... but I fell asleep before I could write them. This night would probably get me no points either way, but I'd just mention it because I think it may be troublesome later on. :< I really need to learn how to just start writing - even if its notes - and THEN go back to sleep.

Now all I have is this very watered-down blurry mess.

Medium and very boring lucid dream.

I also rode an elevator, an escalator, and a jet ski.

well. I had a ND last night where I was playing with pokeballs... I knew there was a battle going on somewhere in the dream, but I didn't see it, just felt it nearby. But other than that, I missed it...

Oh! and I was flying a spaceship through a giant space-station maze thing.. Does that count as riding?

Oops.

Almost forgot.

Last night I had a short, low quality LD. Again. To be honest, the two are eerily similar. o.o

Aforementioned LD can be found somewhere around here.

Also, the subject of Pokémon seems to crop up quite often, but I haven't managed to complete any of the tasks yet, intentionally or not.

Alrighty, I'm loving this LD streak.

First off, I rode a minecart thanks to playing Minecraft so much.

This next dream is a long LD.
I'm going to a movie theater to watch a Doctor Who special. I don't have any friends with me so I'm worried people will think I'm a loser for some reason. However, I sit with a group of really awesome people and we're excited for the show.

I think that this must be Matt Smith's final episode, but I remember that it already happened, so I figure it must be Peter Capaldi's first episode. However, Matt Smith appears on the screen. I'm a little upset since I figure this must be his last episode which I've seen many times which means I would have wasted money to see it on the big screen. However, it's a new episode we've never seen.


I realize that this doesn't make any sense and must be dreaming. The episode itself is very interesting, quite literally the episode of my dreams. I wake up but DEILD back in. I want to continue the episode but it's in a different part now. Instead, I decide to explore around.

I walk outside and the entire theater is apparently in an old chapel in a park by a lake. There's a forest nearby, and the back of the chapel is on a concrete foundation over the water. I walk down to the water's edge and see a lot of lily pads and plants. I plan on walking underwater to see what might be there, but I remember the task.

I forgot I had to choose specific Pokemon, so I figured I would just try to summon water Pokemon. The first one I thought of was Psyduck. As soon as I called out for one, I saw one swim by under the water. Then I figured Golduck was the next one, and the same happened. Finally, I summoned a Goldeen which jumped out of the water in front of me.

I remembered I had to battle so I called the Psyduck and Golduck to come up. Golduck jumped out of the water and right next to me while Psyduck kind of awkwardly waddled out. I forgot anarchy and democracy had to be two seperate battles, so I had them fight each other at first. They mostly just used bite and scratch.

I then told Psyduck to use psychic. He did and Golduck stumbled around before falling over. I gave Psyduck a high five.

Tried very hard to get a LD so I could finally get to do that Pokemon task, but that didn't happen. However, I was on a ship at one point, so I'd guess that earns me points for 'ride'.

I also fought a lot, mostly with weapons. However, most of the time that happened, I was playing Dishonored. The only reason I say 'I also fought' is because Dishonored is a first person game, and the line between what counts as reality and game in dreams lessens.

So... I wouldn't say I completed my own personal task just yet. Tbf, I would rather do that in a Lucid Dream, myself.

Edit: ... but since I wasn't 'myself' when I was on that ship, does that mean that doesn't count too? Hmmm... Well, now I'm just confused...

Aforementioned dream can be found here.

This is a good task. I can get the last one and my personal task at once I believe. I jump in and out of games lucidly and non lucidly a lot... Now just to remember them. Do I need to be looking at the screen or does going into the dream work? Like if i picked up a GBC and jumped into a pokemon game.

Had a personal short LD and another dream about riding in a car today playing age of empires in the back seat.

I had a medium LD here that attempted my personal goal in an ornate manner, but did not actually manage the part that earns points. I also had an ND in which I would have battled a Pokémon had the dream not switched to another scene right then. sadblauw

Also made two or three small corrections, one based on a request to remove their lucid points.

@Loah: If you're flying a spaceship, you're also riding it, so yes.

@BrandonBoss: You have to be physically there to earn the points, but entering a game is a good way to go about that. smile

Well I'm crossing my fingers and hoping the low recall no LD streak is turning into a higher recall task streak (with some LDs? tounge2 ). Here's another NLD in which I ride a cruise ship (of sorts ).

Rock the Boat ~ Non-Lucid Dream ~ Task 1 Additional Ride

Awesome. Playing a game without physically going there is hard, sounds good to me. :3.

Can I still earn points for first tasks? I finally got in a race last night. Took me a while to get it.

4 LDs last night
3 normal length 1 long.
