Introduction

It's that time again… welcome to Lucidity Challenge 46!

The purpose of the Lucidity Challenge (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. We hope that everybody gets to experience all of these while participating!

Yes, that's right; we hope. I, Thorn, have hosted too many of these things lately, and some circumstances that occurred near the end of the last LC meant that Scipio, who finished in third place, likely didn't get a fair chance to compete in the eleventh hour. Therefore, the top three finishers from the last LC—Thorn, drd, and Scipio Xaos—are all contributing to this one!

Challenge Structure

The LC will consist of three lucid dreaming tasks that are each posted seven days after the previous one as well as a single long task. 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. When all three week-long tasks have run and the extended task is finished by at least one competitor (or if too much time passes), the LC will end and 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.

Scoring

For the most part, you'll see the points awarded for your actions right on the scoreboard. For those of you who want the fine details, open up this length-controlling spoiler.

Click here to see the hidden message (It might contain spoilers)


When you claim points, please be sure to state the length of any lucid dreams you are claiming, which actions you are claiming for points, and which actions were done non-lucidly and lucidly. We highly suggest linking your dream journal or describing relevant parts, as this allows us to judge your point claims accurately, award creativity points if applicable, or find points that you may not have known you could claim.

You are free to calculate points to check your standing, but we are the official scorekeepers. If you feel we made an error in points, please PM us immediately and we will either explain or correct the scoring. The participants and the hosts are here to have fun, so if we disagree on how many points you have earned, please do not make a scene in public. While it sounds childish to say it, it's been a longtime LC rule: if you don't like how the hosts award points, then win the LC so you can make up your own rules!

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 by focusing on certain dream themes and receiving more points for matching subtasks.

The LC usually has three teams, and we now have three hosts. The only plausible course of action is for each of us to head a team and duke it out!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 we 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. Team Dreams will 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. These are worth big points, so be sure to contribute!

The best team each week, as measured by most recent task completions divided by number of team members, will receive a small reward to help it further. Be sure to motivate your teammates so that everybody has lucid dreams!

You'll also occasionally have subtasks involving getting assistance from your team's host or facing him in a friendly competition. The hosts are out to help both in dreams and in waking life, so don't hesitate to ask for dreaming advice! We're always in the chat room or available for forum PMs!

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 or if you want like-minded teammates, then you need to be clear about what those desires are!

Here are our current sign-ups:

One last note: We will read any dream journal entries you want us to read. Feel free to post dreams here or in your DJ. However, we will have a lot to read, so we 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 us to check things only serves to slow down scoring, which is not what anybody wants.

Best of luck to everyone! Dream hard!

Beautified the signup list!

So, my goals for this LC are to be lucid! Specifically, get lucid and manage to stabilize and control my dreams! Also I will continue to have my long-running goal of playing Dance Dance Revolution in a dream. It's a very important goal to me and I really feel like I need to complete this goal. So yeah. HYYYPE!

  5. stari_maga- Team DRD- fly with wings
  6. Obfusc8 - Team Thorn - Street race in Tokyo


So... I enjoy (abusing) powers and using tech gadgets, but there's a stack of transformations on my list of goals. I'm hoping the Team Thorn tasks will allow scope for experimentation. That list includes shrinking/growing/ transforming into various animals and mythical beasts.

Since I have a habit of saving my more complex personal goals for the lucid challenges, this time it's gonna be a street race in Tokyo. There has to be a competitive element i.e. someone to race against, and it has to be Tokyo. Vehicle wise, whatever whim takes me when I get there - motorbike, sports car, or maybe I'll transform into a motorbike... now there's an idea. siiw

I skipped one LC, but I think I'm ready to join this one. The concept seems like a lot of fun, so I'm looking forward to participating. The previous LCs helped me with learning about lucid dreaming a lot, because they give me something to focus on while dreaming, and also serve as a motivation to write dreams down (and I do need that, since I'm lazy and I lost the habit of writing a dj).

Since I dream about Neverwinter a lot and I love Castle Never, for my personal goal I'd like to visit any part od the castle, but ideally it would be Neverneath.

And since you can't have a great RPG experience without good equipment and reliable spells, I chose team Scipio.

Getting lucid during all the stress got my motivation up. Maybe I can join the LC even though I have a lot of stuff going on in waking life? Yes. Here I am.

Okay, we have ten sign-ups! I checked with the other hosts, and Friday seems like the best day for us to start.

Susan_Y, if you don't mind me saying so, joining a team with shapeshifting in the description and then making your personal goal "shapeshift" seems to give you a slightly unfair advantage. I offer three choices for this situation; you can change the goal to a specific shapeshift, you can change the goal to something else entirely, or you can leave it and know that your first shapeshift will not also earn you points for any shapeshifting subtasks. Do as you will, and if I get no response, I'll default to the last option.

In any case, we're starting soon! As Mew151 would say, "HYPE!"

Sorry Thorn, I couldn't think of a good personal goal this time round. How about I leave the personal goal blank? (So no extra points for me for personal goal).

^ That's silly, though. smile You said you wanted to shapeshift, so surely when you imagine completing that goal, you imagine yourself in a particular shape. What's that shape? As I said before, if you give me a specific shape, it's perfectly fine, as you would have no way of knowing whether or not the LC has it (and if there is overlap, I'll just use the same conditions as before to prevent double point gain). As it stands, your personal goal of "shapeshift" was made with full knowledge that my team would have a shapeshifting subtask at one point.

All budding lucid dreamers need goals. While I appreciate your willingness to sacrifice points for the personal goal because of your inability to think of one, I need to drive you to set one for your own sake.

I want to change my personal goal to "Move with willpower" and what I mean by that is the ability to visualize yourself in another location in the dream and suddenly be there. First it would be just a short "jump" to an object I can see in the dream. Like a shadowstep, voidwalk or blink ability in some games. This will help towards my goal of reaching the frozen planet, since it's important that I can visualize the target location to be on the other side of the door/portal.

Edit: So what I want to learn is dashing/blinking like in the game Dishonored and teleporting like in the movie Jumper.
