i think we should start. 18 is a fine number. it’s the age i was two years ago.
Well, I’m at school at the moment. Won’t be getting back home until much later today. I’ll start the first task tomorrow. Until then, 2 more people still have a chance to join.
Just signed myself up!
Can I use last night and the night before last LDs in my challenge?
I read this post a while ago and thought I’d give it a try without signing up, and DARN, it actually works to put in mind to do something. hahah
Unless our TM is even more of a pushover than I thought, they won’t count .
Nah. They won’t count. Part of the point of the Lucidity Challenge is to consciously set out to complete the tasks assigned. Using old dreams would completely defeat the purpose and would only be luck if you happened to complete one of the future tasks.
Alright then. You snooze, you lose. In the case of the sign ups anyway.
19 people it is. Let’s get started! Unless someone joins before the first attempts are made. That will be the final exception.
Let’s start with something extremely generic and full of creative potential, shall we? The goal of this task is simple. Fly! Points will be awarded based on creativity! Unlike in the previous Challenge where this task was presented, I’ll just be focusing on the flying techniques themselves and nothing else.
Now for the first time you take flight +30 points
For every technique you use to fly +20 points
If you use a technique that you’ve never used before, +30 points instead
Additionally, if you manage to impress me with your creativity, bonus points may be awarded.
Some examples of techniques: Superman style, Transformation (growing wings or turning into a flying creature), using a substance (ex. magic potion) or object (ex. Jetpack) or vehicle (ex. Plane or broomstick), etc. The creative possibilities are endless!
Useful topic: Different Styles of Flying
Note: Try not to be cheap with choosing different techniques. By that, I mean don’t go use something like “Super Man style” and then the same thing only with your arms at your side instead. Same thing with transformation. Ex. Two different kinds of birds. In these cases, points will only be awarded if it actually affects the way you fly, if there’s a noticeable difference to you.
Oh, and remember have your personally tasks. If your personal task has something to do with flying, don’t worry! You’ll still be awarded for it!

Sorry if I somehow read over it, but how long have we time for one task?
(Just would like to know! )
I have question: I never flew yet, so if i’ll fly for the first time I will get a bonus?(puppy face)
2 days/nights each. After that you won’t get early points.
/me sends lucid vibes to all
And after 2 days there is already a new task?
Or do I just not get the early points anymore?
(Sry if I’m a little bit annoying. )
Bluemoon, there’s a new task each 2 days, but if you missed the first 2 days for a specific task, you can get the early points anyway with a combo, that is, doing more than one task in a single LD. Then every task you attempted will be counted as early.
- Shall I remind everyone that they have to decide their own medium LD durations before any points counting can take place?
As for myself, I think I’ll settle for the medium LD duration on the 1-5 min range. (even if 5 min would be my record so far ), plus my personal task is definitely transforming.
That is amazingly sweet, Wyvern, thanks a lot.
Also thanks for the lucid vibes Wyvern!
Hmm my medium LD duration… Can’t really tell, so I’ll also set it between 1-5 min!
Okay guys. tosxyChor just brought the situation with the Double Quest to my attention. Because there’s a Double Quest going on, it would be too complicated to count points for doing the Quest, so there will be no points awarded for that this time around.
Now everyone go thank Q.
On the bright side, I’m sure this Challenge will give you guys plenty of opportunity to do the Quest at the same time so you’ll be able to get wings.
Hmmm… I guess I would consider a medium LD at 3-5 minutes.
I’ll interrupt my current quest in favor of this one.
Also, I feel sort of behind on LD4all’s quests in general. I have been here for four years and still have not made an attempt to earn my wings.
Thanks! I need all the vibes I can get.
Medium LD: 2 minutes.
Personal goal: Complete transformation
kk, my medium LD-length is also about 2 minutes, and my personal goal is also to complete transformations
Seeing as this is the first time I’m doing this I have a few (probably stupid) questions.
Do I keep a log of things attempted with the scores, and then post them?
Or do I post each task after I’m done and I will get scored by Wyvern?
Do I need to give my personal goals beforehand, or just say what it was I was trying to achieve when posting my LD?
Then as everyones LDs are of a duration I am just wondering if I am totally off on my LD lengths. To me a medium LD seems about 10-15 long seeing as there is always so much happening in my dreams. But maybe it only feels long but isn’t?
1st quest. (medium LD)
I flew, but just my regular way of flying, holding my body still and using my thought to go where I want and I automatically go there. I forgot about using an original techniques, will try again tonight.
I did try 3 of my personal goals last night.
- Told myself to say, “Increase lucidity”, and I did (trying to make that a habit).
- told myself to say , “Stay lucid for an hour” which I said, and hoped that it would keep me lucid without having to work on keeping vividly lucid.
- Told myself to see if I could sing, so that way I can practice when dreaming without bothering the neighbors in WL. I did try but was sorely disappointed. I’m going to have to work on singing in dreams, I sounded terrible.
The I actually had a 4th goal which was that after attempting Wyvern’s Quest I would attempt the double quest that pasQuale had started, which I then did.
PS At the end of pasQuale’s quest a rooster outside my window rudely awakened me (one of the disadvantages of living on Kauai, millions of free-roaming chickens and roosters) so the staying lucid for an hour didn’t work due to outside forces.
Hey, there are no stupid questions.
Post the dream and I’ll add up the score.
You don’t need to post your personal task beforehand but it is preferred. You can just state when you’re writing the dream whether or not you completed a personal task. Remember, only one personal task is counted.
As for the lengths, before or after each LD, just say whether or not it was short, medium, or long. You can’t be off with your times as it’s entirely subjective. If it felt long, then it was probably long.
However, if I see you getting consistent “long” LD’s, maybe you are off. Though maybe not. Maybe just being fortunate.
Wyvern, can i still sign up?
-There is a big party in the city hall. I am at the back of a big crowd, and can’t see anything of what is happening. I know that it is “like this again, why don’t i just fly again?” and relax as deeply as i can. It makes me float slowly up to the ceiling, where i can see everything. The dancing people look very good from above.
:edit: i was low lucid for less than a minute
