Welcome to LC #34! I, elnaureth, will be your host this round. I hope this challenge will be fun and exciting for everyone, and will help you all bring your skills to the next level!
The LC is a method that has been carried out in order to motivate participants in their quests for lucidity and provide them with short-term goals that will hopefully be interesting and enjoyable. It is an opportunity for lucid dreamers to improve their dream-skills and creativity, while also competing with other dreamers for the chance to host the next LC.
The following are the rules.
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 length 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
Everybody is to provide an average length on signup (unless you have never had an LD before), and point calculating will be done accordingly.
For those who have never had a lucid dream before, there will be no short LD option. Dreams over 30 seconds and less than 5 minutes will be considered medium length, and dreams over 5 minutes will be considered long LDs.
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 +75 points!
If you become lucid through a technique you never succeeded with before, I will also award +50 bonus points to you. If you’re about to try a new technique, or are simply new to lucid dreaming and want to find out which technique suits you best, this is your chance. However, these extra points are not awarded for your first ever lucid dream. (Please be clear about this when you report your dream, because I don’t want an extra entry in the signup form for each technique succeeded with so far.)
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 must 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.
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.
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 per 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 LD points)
+20 early points (for completing the last task active when you go to sleep)
+10 creativity points (for using creative solutions in your LDs)
Base idea for awarding points in each task:
Generally, points for each task will be assigned as follows:
- 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 a 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 120 points in total per person for completing your tasks.
If you submit one personal goal, you will earn 120 points for completing it. This cannot be repeated. If you submit several goals, you will get 120 points divided by the number of tasks you submit for each one that you complete. For example, if you have five goals, completing one will award you 24 points.
Be careful, personal goals and average LD lengths cannot be changed while the challenge runs.
Deadlines and Calculation
New tasks will be posted Tuesday 8:00 PM EDT, or Wednesday at midnight GMT. I will accept entries as late as exactly one day after the next task is posted for early points. The reason for this is the variation in time zones between LD4all members.
If you have any questions about deadlines, please PM me.
You have two options for the point calculation process:
You either write whole dreams here or post a link to your online DJ.
Or you can just specify which basic task and secondary tasks and repetitions you completed, and your points will be calculated accordingly. However, by doing this, you will lose your chance of getting creativity bonus points.
Don’t worry about the point calculations, I will be calculating 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 award 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. When the minimum amount is reached, the first task will be posted on the soonest Tuesday.
This challenge will last for six weeks, one task per week.
I’ll allow signups after the first task is posted, but not if this means we reach more than 20 participants.
