Rhewin, would you count an obsolete gaming console or portable console as outdated technology?
In my case a PSP?

Really, really, really strange dreams last night. Anyways, I wondered if I was dreaming in one of my dreams. I was in the live audience for SNL and thought to myself that I always do this in dreams(which isn't true, but meh, dream logic) and I should do a RC. However, I said that it was obviously RL this time, so why bother. And thus DING DING DING!!!

Submitting a short LD where I completed a task from the last LC. Heh I know the task won't count, but it was something I wanted to accomplish.

Completed four tasks, but I wasn't lucid.
-Transformed into a spider (Animal transformation & sprouting extra limbs)
-Wielding a bow in a DCUO mission (Outdated tech)
-Taking out these humanoids that threatened Metropolis citizens (Saving a citizen)

Here in my latest entry. Tasks starting at 7/15/14. (I've got to fix the link)

Quote:
Transform into an inanimate object 30pts: you've got some choices here. No moving!

How long must we remain motionless..?

Same as before. Recall seems to have returned and the dreams seem to be more vivid than the day before... additionally more lucids! :D Still... even though I tried to incubate the tasks into my memory I still tend to be swayed by dream plot and utilize my lucidity to take on what's going on around me. Can't complain though; it's fun. tounge2

Had a short LD last night.

Sadly I got close to a few tasks but didn't complete any. I changed from a wolf into a human, and then later I didn't fully transform into a bird, I just had wings. I saw a woman with a keyboard, but she vanished before I could play it... Sigh. Still... lucid again! Hurrah! ^^

Router is up and running, new task is up soon. Post anything you've got! And again, please post by 11:30pm CST

@HeadInTheClouds: you were definitely rescuing citizens!

@Koharo: I might call some game consoles obsolete, but a PSP still uses current technology. Even if it's been overshadowed by the Vita, I'd have a hard time calling it obsolete or out of widespread use. The bow counts anyway, so you still get the points. To answer your question, you just need to become an inanimate object. Like, unable to move unless you used dream powers to move. But if push came to shove, I'd say just a few seconds are fine. Let me know if I need to update.

@Thorn: come on, you've only got one Task left!

Scores are updated

Fun: 11.1% ( 1.3 tasks per member)

Task 5 - Fiction!
Fiction comes to life in dreams. Anyone who knows me knows my DG is that avatar you keep seeing in my posts. In fact, a lot of dreamers on LD4all love to explore the world of fiction in person. To wrap up this LC, let reality go and let the dream in. To quote Dr. Sidney Freedman: "Ladies and gentlemen, take my advice. Pull down your pants and slide on the ice!"

...I'm not entirely sure what that has to do with fiction other than I wanted to throw in a M*A*S*H reference somewhere.

Oh yes, and welcome back to Creation, Investigation, and Transformation. As the Fun team no longer exists, its members are no longer eligible to claim an opposing Team's task without penalty. Also, the other two teams no longer have to wear party hats to do team-voted teasks tounge2

The Tasks

Do something that defies the laws of physics +20pts: fly, walk through a solid wall, stand upside down on the ceiling. BASICALLY FREE POINTS!
Do something you would never do in real life +20pts: and I mean you specifically. Maybe it's stabbing someone in the shin. Maybe it's giving money to the homeless only to then rob them and take it back. Maybe it's dancing naked on the White House lawn. Maybe it's something I can't even think of. Only you know what you wouldn't do. *Credit to Thorn as the basic premise is an unused idea from LC 42*

Film or star in your own movie +30pts: BLATANT LC TASK THEFT ALERT!!!! Credit to Wyvern for making up this task in LC 41 tounge2. Basically, either film a movie or be filmed while starring in one. And it has to be fiction, not a documentary!
Bring an elemental to life +40pts: this is a venture into the world of fantasy. Turn an element into a living being. You could make a fire beast, a water sprite.. whatever!

Have a conversation with one of your favorite fictional characters +30:
yeah, just pick whoever floats your boat. I will not count fictional adaptations of historical figures unless they're way off from the source material. Basically, no historical dramatizations. For example: Lincoln in the movie Lincoln does not count. Lincoln in the movie Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter does.
Write the dream as it's happening +40pts: what do I mean? Imagine you just found a typewriter. Everything you write actually happens as you write it. You write that there is a car crash 30 feet from you? It happens. You write your secret crush falls madly in love with you? It happens. Remember, with great power comes a hell of a good time.

Absorb the power of an element +30pts:
find an element and absorb its powers. For example, you might find a fire, suck it up, and then suddenly be able to shoot fire from your hands. And an "element" could be anything, such as rocks or trees or nuclear energy. You only have to absorb it from a source. Look up Infamous: Second Son if you need a better example.
Turn yourself and the world into an 8- or 16-bit video game +40pts for you kids, that means something like the NES or Sega Genesis. OK, fine, I'll also accept things like the Super NES and Sega Saturn... but nothing more! I don't care if the DCs transform, but I do want you to become a sprite.

Task 5 Ultra Team Task
And now for something different...

For this final task, each team will contribute something to a massive Ultra Team Task. To receive credit, you have to use all three parts of this task in your dream. However, you can complete this task with any other LC member, not just your teammates. Do not discuss what your team is choosing with any other team, and do not post in the topic when you have decided. PM me with your team's decision and I will have the Ultra Team Task posted in its total.

In this Task that has never before been attempted, we will create a duel worthy of cinema that, if it were in a movie, would be talked about for all eternity!!! This will not be an easy task by any means. In fact, it'll take a lot of control and good memory for what to do. Because of this, it is worth a TON of points.

What's a ton of points? Can I hear +200pts? I think I can. Obviously this is is a significant number of points and could be game changing. Because of this, I will not award any partial credit. You have to complete all parts of the task at once in the same dream. No visiting the location and then having a duel somewhere else and then TFing in yet another place. All three parts much be present.

The Creation Team will decide how you will duel. Will it be a Jedi lightsaber fight? A wizard duel from Harry Potter? Turn three paces then fire? We'll find out soon enough.

The Investigation Team will decide where you will duel. It must be a world or universe from a work of fiction. The world of Pandora from Avatar? The Island of Lilliput from Gulliver's Travels? World 1-1 from Super Mario Brothers 3? It just keeps getting better.

The Transformation Team will decide who you get to duel as. Obi-Wan and Darth Vader? Sonic and Dr. Robotnik? Sherlock Holmes and Moriarty? You can pick which of the two you become, but you must become one *and* the other must be your teammate transformed.

Transformation Team Advantage

The advantage task will continue as normal. The task must include something do to with transformation and be inspired by the following word: KEY

And, just in case anyone asks,

Final Team Participation
Fun: 11.1% ( 1.3 tasks per member)
Super: 10.4% (1.25 task per member)
Mystery: 8.3% (1 task per member)


Good luck, everyone, and Happy Lucids! Rhewin

Alright cool.

Yea I morphed into a remote control car and took off like a bat out of hades. How I moved? I just moved/drove where I willed myself to go, so I believe I missed that one. I don't believe I used an ability to move.

Edit: Man and I did some of these tasks this morning too haha

Question: For things we would never do in real life, does that also mean things we would never usually do while dreaming? Because the way I interpret it, simply flying would be enough to fulfill the task, as I'd never do that in real life. Could you please clarify?

@HITC: I mean things your personality, morals, or the general rules of society would not normally allow you to do. Check my examples.

Edit: here's a better way to word this. I don't care about things that are impossible to do in real life, I care about things you *wouldn't* do in real life, even if you could.

Rhewin, I had a long LD, and had a conversation with a character from Silmarillion by Tolkien. (The elven captain) And, I teleported, of course.

I had this LD 4 hours after you posted the tasks, but...hadn't read it yet. sadblauw

I had a long LD with a chain last night. I flew with wings, did some naughty things with a random DC, and changed the way a song sounded while it was playing
