First off, sorry for the nearly a month long wait. It really couldn’t be helped.
Welcome to Lucid Challenge 24! I, Wyvern, will be your Taskmaster!
This challenge is aimed to test your ability in inducing lucidity in dreams, keeping them under control, and setting and completing goals.
It will be a challenge of will, of originality, of wits and determination, but most of all, I want this to be a challenge against yourself. The sake of this challenge is for personal improvement first and foremost! Yeah, I took a bit of your intro there, tosxyChor.
I really liked the new rules tosxyChor implemented in the last Challenge, but reading over the TaskMaster guidelines topic, I’ve decided to tweak them a bit. If you don’t like 'em, well, more incentive for you to win and change them!
Ah, I’m kidding. I’m open to suggestions.
Points awarded for each dream:
- You wonder if you’re dreaming + 5pts
- You become lucid but wake up shortly after or lose lucidity very quickly + 10pts
- Short LD: You have whatever you would consider to be short according to typical LD’s you’ve had in the past. + 20pts
-Medium LD: You have what you would consider a medium size LD or normal length. + 30pts
- Long LD: You have what you would consider a long LD. + 40pts
Additionally, if you beaten your own person record for longest LD, I will award +10pts. This can potentially happen more than once in the Challenge if you try hard enough to beat your own records.
As you can see, this scoring system is very subjective. This is because different people have different average lengths for lucid dreams. What one person may consider short (5 minutes) may be someone else’s medium and so on. This is so people can work on improving their own personal bests. It encourages the more advanced LD’ers to work hard too.
Chaining and regaining lucidity: Every time you chain or get back your lucidity from having lost it, you are awarded 5 points. However, the new LD is counted as a continuation of the previous one.
Ideas in mind: I will be focusing on lucidity here, creativity as well as originality. There will be good points for everyone, fat points for who can manage a little creativity and resourcefulness, and even more points (if little) for who wants to keep going.
Any task can be attempted any number of times, however the scores are not cumulative among the same task. Only the best score is awarded for each one.
For each task, the following bonuses can be awarded:
+30 points for any task accomplished while lucid.
+20 early points (for completing the last task being given)
Combo points! Accomplishing more than one task in a single LD marks them all as early. So, if you do 2 late tasks in the same LD, you get + 40 pts as early bonus. There will be no late penalties this time around.
Base idea for awarding points in each task:
Around 60-70 points for the basic stuff
+ 30-50 pts for the more advanced stuff (after you finished the basic one)
more (+5-10 points per tick) as repeatable part, for who did all the rest, and want more ^^
Extra occasional points awarded for display of creativity and/or prowess (max 30 per task) by the TM.
Quest points removed LC #24.
If you have set a personal task for yourself that you’ve really wanted to do, and you complete it in one of you LD’s during the Challenge, I will award +30 pts. Limited to one personal task per person.
The task will be short and sweet running for a little over 2 weeks with 7 tasks (granted I can get them up in time ). Each task will run for 2 days, and because of the significantly shorter time to do them within the task period, there will be no late penalties, only bonuses for doing them on time.
So let’s get this going, shall we?
