LC #27, Winner: Rhewin! Congratulations everyone!

I went to Wonderland in an ND by warping through a book, “Wonderland.” I ended up in an enclosed football stadium and proceeded to solve the mystery of Little Red Riding Hood. What does that have to do with Wonderland? The world may never know…

Also, one long low lucid LD last night. I helped free a small western town from a gang of outlaws. I freed a slave of theres and then ran them off, revealing a large supply of turkey dinners :content:

Good job Rhewin! I guess the ice has been broken now :content: That nets you | [color=#e4ecee]45 task + 30 lucid + 20 early = 95 points! ^[1] | Also, that score can easily raise if you provide a detailed report of what you met :wink: Plus of course | [color=#e4ecee]40 points[/color] | for that LD. :smile:

EDIT: Siiw had a medium LD (told me in chat). So | [color=#e4ecee]30 points[/color] | for you :content:

For everyone else, I’m still waiting! :wink: Show me your will to improve and do your best, be resolute when you go to bed, and be sure to live your dreams to the fullest! :happy:

You’re going to adore this one,

Task #3: Love!

“You must be the change you want to see in the world.” - Mahatma Gandhi

If the world needs more love to be spread around, the why don’t we start practicing ourselves? Be the best person you can be, and spread love around, to friends, to family, to complete strangers, to Nature, love is for everyone and everything! :love:

Find more and more ways to show your affection, make people known that there’s someone loving them! :content: For each act of love, you are awarded +5 points. For every different being you show your love, affection, or compassion to, there’s +10 more points. For each different way you find to do so (be it kisses, hugs, presents, kind words, bringing them to fly with you…) you are awarded +10 points.

Then observe how your actions have produced a positive change, both in others, and yourself! Managing to witness the positive results of your love nets you 35 points.

Plus don’t forget that what goes around, comes around! I’m sure your dream world will be a much friendlier place next time you’re in :content:
Let love be spread within and without :happy:

Awww, what a sweet task :content:

And you’re right, I forgot to detail the creatures. The only one I really remember is the little brother of the big bad wold, the Little Bad Wolf. He actually looked your old avatar, tosxy :tongue: . He asked me to help clear his brother’s name, and then ran off.

Awww, that was so cute :content: Also, I sense someone wants my old avatar back :tongue: :lol: But have no fear, I’ll certainly put it back in its place once I’m done with something important.
Not to forget, | [color=#e4ecee]25 points[/color] | for the report :content:

I think I should post the partial scores st this point. :tongue: EDIT: Done!

It’s time for our Experimental Control week!

[center][title]Task #4: Call your moves![/title][/center]
Ever noticed how cartoon and video game characters have quite the flair for shouting their attacks’ names out loud before executing them? It has almost a religious adherence to it, and there’s no other way they’d be doing that all the time, if that wasn’t the source itself of their power! Well, in this task, we’re going to find out!

Amaze the audience with your incredible moves, and be sure they know what you are doing! There’s no point in keeping the thing secret if you’re the dreamer, showing off is highly recommended!
Or you could just entertain yourself by discovering new moves au solitaire, and maybe see how far your power can be stretched!
This may be not the most subtle of techniques, but hey, it gets the work done :lol:

For your first called move, you get [color=blue]35 points[/color]! For every new move you use (that is not a repetition of an old one) you are awarded [color=blue]+15 points[/color], with a [color=blue]+10 points[/color] bonus if the inspiration for that move was different (like a different cartoon, or tv show)
Lots and lots of bonus points are available for this task! Amaze the other participants and the TM, and you will be awareded up to [color=blue]50 bonus points[/color]!

So go and show us your moves, possibly without stretching it too far. :tongue: Have fun! :content:

Bah, no LD since he last one, feels hard to recall my recent dreams :meh:

A short LD last night:

[spoiler]-I want to go fishing, and pack my equipment. The line is tangled up, and it takes a while to get it loose. I hope it isn’t damaged. On the way to a fishing spot, i stop and pick up a lure that somebody has dropped. It reminds me a little of a dream. The tide is unusually high, and i think "Good that this isn’t a dream, or the waves would grow just from looking at the sea!

I walk through the forest instead of wading through the sea. When i reach the sea again on the other side, a high wave crashes against land and makes moss and sand slide out into the sea. “Oops, it is a dream after all!”, i think. I don’t want to stay in a dream like this, and look quickly away from the sea. Everything looks so normal, apart from the lack of snow. It is mildly disappointing that i couldn’t go fishing for real. I wake up from a train or something.[/spoiler]

Thank you for recording the LD i had while i was away, tosxyChor. :cool:

Still no LDs, great tasks though tosxy. I have been getting interested in hypnosis recently so i tried self-hypnosis last night to try and get an LD. I slept great. No LDs though.

Had my first LD in a long time. It was a DILD, and it seems that my increased awareness in RL made me see an obvious dream sign. Even if the dream is short I’m excited I had one and it boosted my will to have another one.

Posessed cloth(LD;DILD)

I am going somewhere (can’t really remember where). I am walking on the sidewalk of a street near my neighborhood. After walking a bit I look to my right and I see a pole with an LCD TV on it(It’s turned off). “This is going to be stolen soon” I say in my head and I continue walking. I turn left and I cross the street. When I am near the other sidewalk I do a 360* spin (I remember doing this in a dream I also had tonight). After spinning one more time I’ve seen a tanned, h0t chick and I’ve said “Holy shit!”. The chick looks at me and smiles, then walks away. It’s strange that she was walking in the middle of the street. I continue walking forward until I see a girl classmate ahead of me, kind of far away but I can still recognize who she is. I turn right and I cross the small street. I look at my left arm and I see I’m holding a cloth. Not only this, but the cloth starts pulling itself up! I look at it for a second and then It strikes me: “I’m dreaming!”. I wanted to fly or do something but I’ve lost my lucidity as fast as I’ve gained it. Now I think I am awake and I, again, continue walking forwards, until I turn right again. Then I see some kind of forum ahead of me (like a hologram) and a dude who says he had a LD by noticing how a cloth started moving by it’s own. I’m excited cuz’ he had the same dream as me and I want to tell him I had one too. Something weird happens here because I am trying to paint the reply, edit his previous one, change colors and stuff. I wake up.[/spoiler]

Medium LD in which I spent most of the time trying to get inside the TARDIS control room but failed miserably.

Hi-ho, had no LD for a long time, but did manage this night :smile:

I need to re-settle my goal with the Lucid Quest, especially since I didn’t have enough motivation for my previous goal. “Call you moves” looks great !! Especially since I want to fight a ninja in my next LD :smile:

Congrats Siiw, Rhewin, Gothic Fighter and Colors! Your scores have been updated :content: Keep it up! I want to see more LD’s of yours and everyone else’s :wink:

Thanks Dreamjutsu and Colors for your appreciation :content: I’ll leave one more day for this task, so that someone may complete it. :smile:

I’m back!! Done with costuming Peter Pan and can now sleep and dream again. I missed it! had a most amazing dream last night in which I could see a person’s energy body when looking at him. It was amazing! Golden swirls of light and movement, hard to describe. It looked like a condensed miniature galaxy all golden.
Going to read over all the tasks now and see if I can catch up :pharaoh:

It’s time to shake it!

Task #5: Dance!

On a street, on the dance floor, in a ballroom, in your own room, any place is good to make a good show of your dance moves! Show us what you’ve got, and maybe even something you didn’t think before you could stunt! :happy:
There’s tango, liscio, salsa, the robot, the moonwalk, throw some breakdance in between, or just move yourself to your heart’s content, I’m sure you can think of so much else you could do! ^^

So pull yourself up and get the move on! For each style you execute, or were inspired by, you will be awarded +25 points. For each individual move (as in, type of), you will get +15 points. As a plus, there’s 25 points for each type of dance you will get involved in (solo, double, or group).

Not to forget the fact you’re not limited anymore by your body! What could you think up that would impress the jury?.. Pull off a nice one or several impossible feats, and get awarded up to +40 bonus points for each! Be sure to let your imagination run wild :colgate:

So get moving, and be sure to bring back that “King/Queen of the dance floor” back here from your dreams :wink:

Had a short LD of a about 1 minute…nothing task related though, but did race downhill with one foot on a dinkytoy :crazy:

YAY! Finally another LD. And a rather good one at that. I really need to start paying more attention to my dreams again, like I did last night. :shy:

Ok, so summary:
Length: long ~15-20ish minutes
Tasks Completed: Dance, Call your moves?, and personal one Talk With DCs (though I kinda fail on that one)

Awesome ND where we’re on a mid-sized island sized ship, we go exploring into some areas we shouldn’t chain-link fences and lots of overgrown greenery. We get told off and go back to the main part of town. There is an extremely small kitchen/diner there, where there is this girl trying to recreate a lost pie recipe. She tries again and again but fails. I try to help them as they prepare food but there is so little space to even move in the kitchen I am more of a hindrance than help.
Night time in my room on the ship, all the rooms are pretty small despite the massive overall size of the think. Mine happens to be noex to the ery kitchen we were in earlier. There is some woman there too. Monsters begin to appear, the scene zooms out to show other areas of ship and stuff. They don’t appear near people but will devour them if the come upon one. They are starving.
By some trick someone manages to get one to appear in my room, he takes her hostage. I debate weather to shoot it or not (??with laser eyes??) but it has a hold of her with the many tentacles that grow like hair from it’s head. Breaking a bottle of hot-sauce over his head quickly solves that as he devours it greedily. I give him some food and then he curls up in a ball.
Professor video calls, sees the beast and says. “Oh good another specimen.” He is testing a matter transporter. He quickly makes a baby-like monster appear in the middle of my room. He begins the suck on the bottle that appeared along side him.
The professor warns against that because it will cause him to mutate. And so it has the baby-thing’s head had already began to elongate, eyes growing large. I remove the bottle from it’s mouth and it begins to go back to normal.
I have to get it somewhere safe, for all intensive purposes it is a normal baby. I walk along the street in the dark, making sure it doesn’t drink from it’s bottle for too long a time at once. We come to an intersection, and a cop car pulls up, i hold my breath for a minute but stay calm. He moves on, we cross and I remember this massive daycare that my brother helps out at and went to hen he was little. I get to the building and go to the very top floor, it is a madhouse, there is this massive playground that is over 5 stories tall. Kids are running everywhere and the adults don’t seem to care much. I find the room where J is and find that he is still in his PJs…from like a week ago… I decide against leaving the baby here and proceed to leave. Derren Brown?, The mentalist/hypnotist/magician guy, I have been watching a lot of his shows recently. is there and somehow we get into a fight. The baby is near a glass railing that overlooks the floors below, in between the different glass panels the are gaps, and I argue that he will fall through, while Derren thinks not, one of the gaps is bigger than the others and a barely manage to save the baby from plummeting to his death. During this time I have been slowly becoming lucid and now am quite aware that this is a dream.So since we are fighting I struggle to make my swords appear, I manage to make them materialize without too much dificulty. What i thought happened at the time is that i woke up a bit and grabbed a stick so i could hold it like a sword in bed and have the feeling of holding one both in WL and in the dream, now I realize it was an almost false awakening. We proceed to do battle and I leave a nice cut on his neck. Knowing that he is outmatched he runs off and changes his height and appearance to hide from me. I will chase after him later. I remember some of the tasks and proceed to dance, some moonwalking, robot, um disco? all with random spins thrown in throughout. I remember the Wonerland task but decide against it liking the dreamscape I am in now. For some reason I think synthenasia is a task, and try to mix sight and taste but i don’t know much about it so it doesn’t do much. I know i read it somewhere. I decide to take off my shirt since I had never done that in a dream before, I toss it to some girls all sitting in a group by the wall to my right, asking them to hold it for me. While taking off the shirt it got stuck over my head for a moment and I almost lost the dream due to lack of visual input but i managed to pull it back. It slowly reappears later. As I walk around once again I marvel at how real it, if a bit blurry at times. I try to find derren half heartedly but decide to talk with a DC instead, I don’t say much, I was distracted by my shirt slowly reappearing. But she was a young black girl, sitting at some tables doing her homework. There are some other people sitting around at the tables too.
Somewhere in here I decide to dance again.
Suddenly I have a partner as if we are police men and derren is the criminal. He runs everywhere chasing derren. It is at this point I realize that there has been a narration going on as if the ceiling is talking in my voice dictating everything that is going on. I chase him too. After a bit I wake up.

This will be fun once I manage to remember the task :razz:

/me likes dancing, its just that he doesnt do that often in front of people :grin:

Fantastic dream Dreamjutsu! :happy: For the Dance task you did 2 styles (I’m going to assume breakdance and disco, feel free to correct me :smile: ) and 4 moves (moonwalk, robot, generic disco moves :tongue: and spins), so that would total | 25 solo + 50 types + 60 moves+ 30 lucid + 20 early = 185 points! | Also, I can’t spot exactly the part where you called out your attacks, could you point it out for me? :smile: And another question, would you like to consider the personal task completed? And if so, how many people were there when you did it? (It had to be 2+ besides you for the full points to apply). Do not worry, you can always have another attempt at that :wink: And don’t we forget, | 40 points | for your long LD :content:

Nice dream BeRightBack :lol: You can remember your goals more clearly in a dream if you state them to yourself before going to sleep :content: For now, | 20 points | for your LD ^^

GHOSTIE11, you’ll probably see how fun it is to be the center of attention every once in a while, plus with DC’s it’s a free try :grin:

Also KauaiDreamer, sorry if I didn’t see your post before, but amazing dream you had there! ^^ I can see you’re getting closer to achieving your goal :content: Keep going, you may get there very soon :wink:

Good luck and sweet dreams to all participants! :content:

Really weird medium LD with very low lucidity wherein I thought I had lost my dream powers and had to climb a very tall set of brik columns to get it back. First time I’ve ever been afraid of heights in a dream.

What’s funny is most of my low lucidity dreams I’m kinda in a haze or stuck going with the story. In this one I could have sworn I had full awareness and that something had just stolen my powers. Oh well.
