Lucidity Challenge 49

The Lucidity Challenge (LC) is a fun and competitive series of tasks that challenge your dream control abilities. It serves as a motivator to keep up good lucid dream practices. Whether you you have LDs every night or are trying for your first one, the LC is a great way to get more out of your dreams. If you just want to have fun, or if you'd like to explore deeper into your dream world, this is the place for you!

Tasks
Task 1: A Dream of Thrones
Task 2: Treasure Island
Task 3: Nights of Future Past
Task 4: Party

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. After four weeks, 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 score pages. 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. I highly suggest linking your dream journal or describing relevant parts, as this allows me 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 I am the official scorekeeper. If you feel that I made an error in points, please PM me immediately and I will either explain or correct the scoring. We're all here to have fun, so if I 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
When you sign up please choose one of the following teams. You will remain on this team for the full duration of the LC, so pick carefully.

SKY RANGER
Calling all the adventurers, the scouts, the masters of the wild and unforgiving dreamscape. Versatile and fearless, rangers complete tasks by any means necessary. Expect physical challenges, exploration and action. If you're not into transformations and magic but are looking for some excitement, adventure dreams or just investigating your dream world this is the team for you.


NIGHT DRUID
The guardians of all things natural. They create, change, nurture and of course, transform their bodies into whatever the situation calls for. Expect tasks that require transforming yourself and manipulating existing dream objects or people into what you need. Yup, the transformation team is back.


SPACE MAGE
Magi make stuff happen by willpower and their mental mastery. Do you like throwing spells around and bending the dreamscape to your will? Sounds like you're a wizard! But don't get hung up thinking about your classic fireball throwing RPG wizards though, also remember that 'Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.'(Arthur C Clarke) If you're smart enough to make electricity-bolt firing arc guns or suitable tech to complete a task, that works for me too. You are SPACE wizards after all!


Sign-Ups

The LC will start after we have at least 10 participants. As the TM lives on that small crazy island called the United Kingdom, expect tasks to be posted around Friday lunchtime for the GMT timezone. If that happens to be in the middle of the night for you, don't panic. You can always read the tasks during your WBTB, just don't spend too long staring at a screen - it can mess with your ability to fall back to sleep!

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, team and your personal goal worth 100 points when completed. After the list, you are invited (but are not required to) say a bit about your motivations for lucid dreaming.

Lucidity Challenge 49 Signups (Name - Team - Personal Goal)
  1. Thorn—NIGHT DRUID—Visibly and tangibly increase in musculature
I didn't plan to jump on the transformation team again so soon because the last LC already saw me becoming a magical vampire werewolf cyborg in only three tasks, but since Rhewin didn't post the last two tasks of LC 48, I'll have to continue becoming something crazier on my own! I really do want to do stuff from the other teams as well, though!

My personal goal is designed to make me really focus on how a transformation feels while using the type of transformation I'm naturally good at—big things, such as dragons. I feel that a focus on the experience of a transformed body will help me with my true lucid dream goal of turning into my usual LD4all avatar (before it wolfed out for LC 48 ).

So given that we have rangers, mages, and druids, is there a tabletop RPG campaign accompanying this LC? I'm all for meeting up on roll20.net for this game that probably doesn't exist. smile (Hey, it'd be a nice replacement for the host-self-insert fanfic of the past few LCs if the participants started shaping the story themselves with d20s, haha!)



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

I'll try to actually attend this time rather than just wasting worthwhile space.

As for my PT, I was thinking along the lines of — establish consistant, recurring dreamscape, with consistant, recurring DCs and... more consistant, recurring things?

Woo, I'm back! This is the first LC I'll be actually participating in this year! Hopefully I'll get all my motivation back?!

Anyway, I am a SPACE MAGE because I like both SPACE and MAGIC. What other reason do I need? grin Spaaaace!

Oh, and also I'm going to continue working on the goal I've been working on for quite some time now. Wait, was I supposed to put "Hulk Out" as my goal? It's very important to me despite how basic it sounds. I need to see this through all the way to the end.



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

In a previous LC I tried to take a break from my goal and changed my personal goal to something different. I noticed that it wasn't a good idea. I have been thinking about revisiting that planet for 2 years and my mind tends to gravitate towards it. I have to do it.

I chose team sky ranger, because I love exploration and adventure. However, if I had completed my goal before this LC, I would have chosen the transformation team. I have no strong feelings towards the third team.

That's a very cool idea, but it'd take quite a bit of prep... if only I'd thought of that a few weeks ago. We'll see how long signups take and whether I get time to come up with something decent... siiw

Love the personal goal, as it's something I'm trying too. Sounds complicated though! ^^ Up to you how 'persistent' it needs to be for you to complete it, of course, you could make it as simple as revisiting a location from a previous dream, or having a dream plot continue from an earlier LD, etc.

And @Mew151 - welcome back incubation master! bow

Well, shoot. If I'd known you'd take me seriously, I'd've signed up for the mage team… and then just ported my polymorphing sorcerer from a Pathfinder campaign I'm in to get all of the druid stuff too. smile I don't know about whatever game you play, but Pathfinder's sorcerers can grow and shrink themselves and others at Level 1 via spells while Level 1 druids are just beginning their bonding with bunnies.

I think we all want this, really. I just never thought I had enough LDs to not have my NDs outweigh it, so I never got started. That said, I'm on an LDing hot streak now and might give it a go if it keeps up, so good luck to everybody attempting this sort of thing. smile The LC needs to start before this hot streak inevitably goes away! I'm begging you, please!

C'mon, people, sign up! Don't act like you haven't had a break since the last LC, as that reason won't fly this time! I need competition, dang it!

I'd prefer it if it wasn't something simple as that, really, but I'm also not going for something super complicated — where every crack and brick remain exactly the same. As for revisiting a location, I already absentmindedly did that (first I was in a house in a ND (a house I do not recognize as something in irl), then I was outside supposedly the very same house in a LD...) If I can do that but more, then yay. As for DCs, I have my ideas on who could easily be part. Preferably they'd be people who dont exist in the real
world, as to seperate the two. Like that one planet I visited. Blah blah blah. Typing on a phone is such a pain.

I just like to mention that I did 2 LD tonight and in one of them I dreamed of Sea dove and obfusc. We were a bunch of people meeting for the opening of the 49th LC. Obfusc was busy talking to someone so Sea dove did the opening speech (in german but then I told him to speak english hehe).
Crap this won t make me earn any points... :D

So I'm going with SPACE MAGE cause it sounds like the one of the three teams I'd most like to participate in right now. It was a tossup with the NIGHT DRUID one, but I think I'd rather be doing some magic. tounge2

And for my personal goal, I'll be looking for a recurring DC and try to have another chat with her. smile
