Task 3: Metamorphosis
And so we arrive at our regularly scheduled transformation task. No LC would be complete without such a staple of lucid dreams. And so it’s time to do some shapeshifting!
The task: change some shape! The caveat? I have specific types in mind and you won’t get points for changing shape, no. You’ll get points for using your new form! It’s not enough to just look different. You have to use whatever new form you take on somehow.
Prehensile Tail (2 Points)
Grow a Prehensile Tail and use it to grasp something. Since tails are very common in Lucid transformations this task is only worth 2 points.
Scorpion Sting (4 Points)
Grow a Metasoma, i.e. a Scorpion “Tail” and use the telson (“stinger”) to strike at something, injecting venom!
Crab “Claws” (4 Points)
Grow a Chela and use it to pinch or snap at something! If you like Pokemon maybe try being a Krabby.
Merfolk (4 Points)
Grow a Caudal Fin in place of your legs and use it to swim faster in water.
A Homely Web(6 Points)
Grow a Spinneret and use it in one of two ways: build a web for catching prey or use it to build a cocoon for yourself. I’d be especially interested in any arachnid transformations and how having eight legs might feel.
Shapeless Monster! (8 Points)
Turn into a formless, non-humanoid monster of the grotesque or eldritch variety. I’m thinking either the Cronenbergs of Rick and Morty or any variety of eldritch creature like the Shoggoth from the wonderful mind of H. P. Lovecraft. Use your new form to horrify some DCs! Be the boogeyman you were always afraid of! This is a high-scoring task due to how difficult it should be.
A Maiden in Peril: Part 3
As of this moment, there hasn’t been a Part 2 completion. You can find the third task prompts below for all future Part 2 completions. Part 3 is worth 16 points!
