Lucidity Challenge 45 - Winner - Thorn!
PostPosted: Mon 15 Sep, 2014  Reply with quote

Introduction

Hullo everybody. Obfusc8 is reporting for LC hosting duty! With a decent amount of luck, some determined dreaming and copious amounts of reality checking, I somehow ended up in second place in the last LC. So I get to take a little break from all the task incubation and come up with some crazy things for you all to do instead. Due to another creative project that runs in November that I wish to take part in, this challenge will run for only four weeks instead of the normal five. Without further ado: Welcome to Lucidity Challenge 45.

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!

Previous Challenges (spoiler tag to control length)

Challenge Structure

The LC will consist of four 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 28 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

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.

Here are the teams:

-Are your dreams like a non stop Action film? Are you always in the thick of it? Do you like overcoming physical challenges, experiencing physical changes and pushing your dream-self to the limit? Are you all out of bubblegum? Then look no further: the Action team is for you.

-Maybe you like to solve Puzzles. Do you fix or invent new things in your dreams? Do you prefer to use your brain rather than fight your way out of situations? This team uses gadgets, inventions and intelligence to solve their problems. If this sounds like you, then the Puzzle team is where you belong.

-Are you an explorer, an Adventurer delving deep into the unknown dream world? Do you like chatting to your DCs? Do you want to get to know them better? How about getting your DCs to help you or helping them solve their problems in return? The Adventure team likes meeting new people, exploring exotic places and improving their dream world.

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. 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 he or she has poor DC summoning skills.

Sign-Ups

The LC will start after we have at least 10 participants.

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:

Tasks

Week 1 - Dungeons and Dragons
Week 2 - Intergalactic
Week 3 - Superhuman
Week 4 - Supernatural

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.

Best of luck everyone!

1. Letaali - Action - Reach the Frozen Planet

I decided to join. I'm unsure how well I can sleep and record dreams with uni and other things that keep me busy. Goal is the same as always, won't change that until it's done. I chose Action team to move away from Explorer/Adventurer :D (and because there usually is action in my dreams). I like change and moving forward. I wish I get my goal done soon...

Well, I'm kind of forced onto the Action team, since I kind of invented it. It's no secret that I'm getting back into transforming myself in dreams (and apparently, so were all of the participants in the last LC by the end). I much prefer the fun options over the easy, point-farming actions, so I expect the team to hate me when the LC's coming to a close and I'm suggesting something ornate while everybody's desperate for a few last points. smile



Current LD goal(s): Get back into good LDing habits

Yay, more LC! I chose adventurer team because it is obviously the best team! My personal goal hasn't changed from the last two LC's, because I'm really determined to do it.

And in case you don't know, "DDR Dream Mix" is just the name of any Dance Dance Revolution games that appear in my dreams. Now, my goal is more than just playing DDR. I have a some extra things that I need to do before I can say that I've accomplished my personal goal. I have an entire incubation for this goal! There are promises on the line here!



Current LD goal(s): Get a real LD; Shoot fireworks out of my hands; Become top idol

Don't underestimate the Puzzle team folks... Trust me, this ain't going to be sudoku or crosswords or any of that boring rubbish! You don't need a genius level IQ to be on the puzzle team. Think of the shiny, shiny gadgets and technology. Mmmmmm shiny. siiw

Soooooo.... I was originally torn between Action and Puzzle, but I went with action cause it's what mostly lined up with what I've been wanting to do (and I'm all out of bubblegum tounge2). But.. since it looks like the Puzzle team needs some love I think I'll just change this...

Hi Jrizzla and welcome smile

To get started you need to pick a team, either Action, Adventure or Puzzle. The descriptions of the teams are in the first post. Basically when the challenge starts, the tasks for your team are worth more points although you can still complete the tasks for the other teams as well.

Second, please choose a personal or dream goal, something tricky or new that you would like to acomplish in a lucid dream. This is worth 100 points if completed during the challenge! :D
