Welcome everybody, it is time for [b]Lucid Challenge # 29![/b]
The taskmaster this time is Siiw. Feel free to PM me any questions you have about the challenge.
The LC started back in 2007, as a way to inspire and motivate people to get lucid, as well as inspiring us to do fun, interesting and thought-inspiring things in the lucid dreams. There will be points and a ranking, but most important, there will be room for each dreamer to challenge both their own individual goals and the tasks set by the taskmaster.
The winner of the Lucid Challenge wins the right to host the next challenge, and their name will be added to the list on top of this post.
Over the course of the last few LCs, the rules have been adapted to better provide an interesting and rewarding experience. [b]A couple of things have been changed in this round, and they are marked with red.[/b]
LD points: you get these just for having an LD! You do not have to complete a task to get these, so post any and every lucid experience!
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 (generally 30 seconds or less for most dreamers). + 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/Average LD: You have what you would consider a medium size LD. This should be the average length of most of your dreams up to this point. + 30pts
- Long LD: You have what you would consider a long LD. + 40pts
-If you don’t provide an average length on signup, or has never had a lucid dream before, all lucid dreams over 30 seconds will be considered of medium length.
A dream is considered a single one until you get out of bed and/or write down your dreams.
If you have your first lucid dream while the Challenge is running you will get +50pts.
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. To help you get a definite idea of what your usual duration is, you should post your average (or medium) LD time when you sign up.
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; so, for example, you can have a medium LD, then chain and raise the LD score to that of a long one.
Task points: These are the points you are awarded for attempting, and completing, the various tasks. You do not have to be lucid to complete a task, but you will earn the most points while lucid. Each task will have different ways of rewarding points, and they will be explained as each task is posted.
This challenge will focus on personal goals and creativity. You will earn points for completing the tasks as they are set, but you might earn more points if you do it in your personal style or as part of achieving one of your own goals. I can also award bonus points for outstanding creativity or spectacular solutions, but no more than 10 points pr. night and person.
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. (Example: You earn 50 points on first attempt but only 20 on the second. You will only earn points from the first).
For each task, the following bonuses can be awarded:
+30 lucid points (for any task accomplished while lucid; this is separate from lucid points)
+20 early points (for completing the last task active when you go to sleep)
Base idea for awarding points in each task:
The tasks of LC 29 will vary in how much it is possible to add personal touches and variations to them. Some will have more secondary tasks, while some will maybe have only one basic task. In that case, the basic task will be worth more points. The scoring system of most tasks will look like this:
- Completing the basic task. (30-50 pts)
- Completing secondary tasks. (10-50 pts)
- Points earned per action or variation. (5-20 pts per tick)
The monthly Quest counts as task, and awards 50 points for completion…
When you sign up, also give your personal task(s). That is, a task that is one of your goals for LD’ing. I will award up to 100 pts in total pr. person for completing your tasks.
[color=red]If you submit one personal goal, you will earn 100 points for completing it. This can not be repeated. If you submit several goals, you will get 100 points divided with the number of tasks you submit. For example, if you have three goals, completing one will award you 33 points.
Be careful, personal goals and average LD times can not be changed while the challenge runs.[/color]
Deadlines and calculation
I will attempt to have tasks up by 8p.m. GMT. There will be 5 or 6 tasks total, and each will be up for ten days. I reserve the right to extend time limits for any reason I see fit.
Your dreams will have to be written down to be judged, so either post them here, or post a link to your online DJ entries (preferred).
I will accept entries as late as 8 pm GMT the day after the next task is posted. The reason for this is the variation in timezones between LD4all members. You should all have 10 nights of sleep for each task.
Don’t worry about the points calculation, Siiw will calculate all the scores. (It is required, given the possibility of bonus points)
If you feel I made an error in points, please PM me immediately and I will either explain or correct. We are here to have fun, so if you and I disagree on how many points you have earned, please do not make a scene. If you don’t like how I reward points, then win the LC so you can make up your own rules!
As per tradition, the Challenge will be open to up to 20 participants with a minimum of 10. As long as there are spots still open, feel free to join even if we have already started.
To quote LC 27’s TM: The main aim of all this will be letting the dreamers grow in their ability to explore, use and interact with the dreamscape, plus developing confidence in their actions as well as new techniques, skills, and methods. This is more than a challenge - it is a personal adventure, that will guide you through the world of possibilities that is your dreams, growing better at this awesome and useful skill we call Lucid Dreaming, making it grow steadily, day by day, task by task.
Again, don’t be afraid to ask me anything about the challenge. I can be found in the #ld4all channel as Siiw or PhoneSiiw most of the day.
Good luck everybody, have fun, and sweet dreams! I would love to see you accomplish your goals in this challenge, have new experiences, or simply be inspired to have a lucid dream!
