Introduction

Welp, here I am again. I didn't win the last LC, but I'm the highest-placing competitor from it that cares to host, so allow me to welcome you to Lucidity Challenge 44!

The purpose of the LC in its current form is to serve as a motivator for good lucid dream practices, to create an atmosphere of both competition and cooperation, to create a challenge for lucid dreamers of all levels, and to provide fun to all participants. I hope that everybody gets to experience all of these while participating!

Challenge Structure

The LC will consist of five lucid dreaming tasks that are each posted seven days after the previous one. Each task will be broken into many subtasks that are each worth points, and each participant will attempt to accrue as many points as possible via finishing the subtasks in lucid dreams and normal dreams, having long lucid dreams, cooperating with teammates, and other means. At the end of the 35 days, the participant with the most points wins! He or she can host the next LC if he or she chooses; if not, hosting rights go to second place, and so on and so forth until a host is found.

Teams (minor changes from LC 43)

The idea of group work started as a behind-the-scenes activity during LC 37, was introduced into the LC proper in LC 39, was revised again for LCs 40 and 41, and reached its current form in LC 42. The teams give you a chance to personalize your LC experience.

A new LC means new teams. The LC's theme this time will be video games, but will not require much gaming knowledge at all; the LC will largely play off of popular gaming stereotypes and popular franchises. What's more important than gaming knowledge is the observation that both LDs and video games serve as a break from reality and serve to give us some control over a world besides our own. When choosing your team, ask yourself, "Why do I want to have lucid dreams?" or, "Why do I play video games?"
  • If you want to immerse yourself into a world other than your own, the Explorer team is for you. This team is not only about where you go, but also about how you interact with your dream world. A video game has a particular set of mechanics you can use to make a character interact with the environment, and this team will explore both the mechanics of its own dream world and the mechanics of the game franchises used in the LC tasks.
  • If you want to feel important, consider joining the Hero team. Heroes can be people who save the entire world or save only one person, and can be the people who prevent a crime or who score the game-winning goal at the buzzer. This team is about becoming that important person, and this involves both performing the right actions and looking the part; a hero's gotta have a distinctive wardrobe.
  • If you want to be more than yourself, then you're a man or woman after my own heart and the Power team is where you belong. Reality is too constraining sometimes, and lucid dreams and video games provide a way to pretend you're something more than normal. This can mean you're an otherwise normal person with an unusual ability or great strength, or it can mean you're something greater than human.
You can choose your team based on your skills, based on what you want to improve, based on what you've never tried, or whatever metric you desire; you get to decide your LC experience! Remember that you will get full credit for your team's subtasks and for generic subtasks but will only get half credit for subtasks belonging to other teams, and remember that you can't change your team later, although I may make exceptions to this if participants start disappearing and teams become weighed down by inactive members.

Once the need arises, teams will each get their own collaborative workspace to design Team Dreams, which are worth points just as a team's subtasks would be. Team Dreams require participants to come up with a way to fit a given condition in a dream that the team as a whole agrees to. Each team will get 48 hours after relevant tasks are posted to design a dream in its workspace. Unlike previous LCs, Team Dreams will only need to be designed twice; this change was made considering the air of frustration witnessed on overly large teams after several Team Dreams were designed and considering the high interest but low completion rate. Team Dreams will also now create two 40-point subtasks each: one for completing the condition solo and one for completing it alongside a DC of a member of the designing team. This allows participants to attempt Team Dreams even if they have poor DC summoning skills.

Sign-Ups

The LC will start after we have at least 10 participants, but will not start sooner than August 9, as I believe the participants of the previous LC that also want to participate in this one would like a short LC hiatus.

When signing up, please quote the sign-up list from the most recent post containing it and add your entry to the bottom of the list. Your sign up should include your username your desired team, and your personal goal worth 100 points when completed. After the list, you should (but are not required to) say a bit about your motivations for lucid dreaming and your dream desires; if you want Team Dreams to fit your desires and motivations, then you need to be clear about what those are!

Here are our current sign-ups:

Current Scores

The current scores and task information can be found here.

Tasks
  1. Achievement Unlocked!
  2. The Legend of Zelda
  3. Mario
  4. Sonic the Hedegehog
  5. Redux

One last note: I will read anything you want me to read. Feel free to post dreams here or in your DJ. However, I will have a lot to read. I will only read your DJ posts if you link them here. Also, if you do link a DJ post, please also summarize what you did for the LC in words. Not giving a summary or giving task numbers or part numbers that require me to check things only serves to slow down scoring, which is not what anybody wants.

As I said in my previous LC,

May the best dreamer win!

Edit: As Thorn said I should, I'll add some information about my motivation for lucid dreaming and my goals. I chose Explorer because of the first line in it's description. I have been immersing myself in fantasy worlds my whole life. I have also found it interesting how I have a specific way of doing things in a dream. This fits the team's goal of exploring how to interact with the dream world. It's mostly about what you can believe to be possible, but finding those things is a fun task in itself. I also have yet to find a way to the frozen planet that's my personal goal, so I'll be working on that if the tasks won't distract me too much.

Alright, so my personal goal is the same as last time. I felt like I could have achieved the goal if I didn't get distracted from LD'ing about halfway through the previous LC. Again, there's more to the goal than just playing a Dance Dance Revolution game. I have specific details in mind for this goal and I won't consider it complete until I can do it right.

I've chosen the explorer team because I love the concept of exploring and simply interacting with the dream world. It sounds fun! It looks like the Explorer team is already pretty popular (though it's really too soon to actually judge), and if it becomes too big I might want to switch to another team just to give the teams a bit more balance. But exploration is cool.

So.. yea.. I chose the Explorer team based on my responses to Thorn's two questions: the main reason I want to LD is to live, for at least a moment, in fantasy worlds. My biggest influence for this goal would have to be the famous WritersCube DJ. As to the other question, the reason I play video games is to get lost in another world, also for at least a moment.. so the Explorer team is perfect for me.

Like Mew, though, if it looks like things become too cramped on the Explorer team I might switch to the close second (practically a tie) choice of the Power team.. But also like Mew said it's too early to tell for sure. wink5

Additionally, I fixed the list.



Current LD goal(s): To Actually LD Regularly Again... Jeez...

I fixed the list to be even better! I almost went with power, but then I realized I could be the only person on a team :D. That, and I usually end up being the hero in my dreams anyway.

My first instinct was to go Explorer too, but that team seems really popular... And I'm no Hero... Anti-hero maybe ebil So I've gone for Power, hoping to learn some new dream control techniques and ideas.

My goal is to find and speak with the Lord of Dreams himself, from Neil Gaiman's Sandman comics.

Last night, I had a dream where there was a wonderful sense of joy. Then I woke up, and I realized I've been lied to. That sucked. Anyhow, my personal task is a bit 'out there', so I'm not sure it'll be applicable. Oh wells.

Okay, we've got 10 people, even if the teams are weighted pretty unevenly. As I said before, I will start on Saturday so that people have at a week off after the previous LC. If you're not involved yet, know that more sign-ups are allowed!
