Lucidity Challenge 15

how many challenges will there be overall?

Sorry Im late with this task, this is a type C task:

DOORS

Everyone knows what a door is, even in dreams, but in dreams anything can be hidden behind a door. It depends how the SC feels to spawn. Your task is to find out whats behind the door and be prepared to confront whats there.

Basic points:

You have a normal dream without ever considering you are dreaming = 0 points
You consider you may be dreaming at least once in the dream, but don’t get lucid = 10 points
You realize you are dreaming, but wake up in under approximately 10 seconds of your realization = 20 points
You realize you are dreaming and have a lucid dream that lasts over approximately 10 seconds = 30 points

Task points:

You remember whats behind the door= 5 points

You open a door to a restricted area= 10 points

You see a locked door and get through= 20 points

Bonus:

You know whats behind= 15 points

JACKPOT:

You see the most wanted behind the door= 50 points.

To make the jackpot harder youll need to have an LD before you can do it :razz:

Good luck and sweet dreams :content:

ooh this one’s gonna be fun. so if i found a locked door to a restricted area and found my heart’s desire behind it, would that add up all the points for all those things?

does that mean that if we go really lucid and know that behind that locked door leading to a restricted area is our hearts desire and remember it we can get 130 points?

exactly, you can count :razz: just kidding. Some days have easier tasks, others not :ebil:

the jackpot can just be taken from an LD and wont be valid next C-task :tongue:

hm… i don’t go through many doors. well i guess i could try and get points for last night. i’ll number the scenes so it makes sense, because in the late parts i refer back to the others:

[spoiler]1) i’m in a shopping centre with my dad when he collapses. i get worried and call out to someone to call an ambulance. when someone runs for a phone he starts convulsing. but not to worry; a young doctor has come, wearing a lab coat, stethoscope, and has messy hair. he does something to make dad concious again and then gives me an injection. no wait… 2. they really hurt too.
2)then i’m in my room playing games on my laptop. i realize what the time is, 1:04am, and decide i should go to bed. i open the door to mums room and my friends are about to go to sleep there. i tell them about scene 1. i leave and notice the light coming in from the bathroom window is brighter than it should be, since it’s the middle of the night. oh well, i go to my room again and see that it’s now 3:04am.
3) next i’m playing a side scrolling videogame with an 8-bit Mario to start off with. i have trouble moving the character but i eventually win the battles and move on. then i play as Sonic and have to save the other characters, but know that if they go too far off screen they’ll die. this happens to Rouge and a green character i don’t recognize, and when i save them a second time they have blood on their foreheads.
4) me and my friends are in a hall with the rest of our classmates. a teacher calls out some names including mine, to come out the front and sit on the chairs. i sit at one of the ends, but when 2 men walk past the doorway i feel uncomfortable so me and a friend swap.
5) i have a FA knowing it’s a dream but i’m still not sure. i think about looking at the clock but decide to try and remember my dreams. (i was very confused here)
6)everyone from scene 4 is walking back to my old primary school. we come across a gate that’s locked and me and a little boy try to open it. our teacher comes and tells us that there’s no way to open it so we climb over. we start walking down the oval and everyone starts talking about their dreams. a guy next to me says he didn’t dream, but i tell him, “everyone dreams, you just didn’t remember yours”. we get down to the playground and almost everyone is crying about the nightmares/dreams they had. i think about telling someone about the dream i had (scene 3) but then a guy i know comes over and sits down on the bench near me. he’s also crying and is repeatedly saying “the apocolypse is coming.” i wonder if it could be true since everyone has had bad dreams. then i reflect on scene 3 again.[/spoiler]

-I am on vacation, at an old farm. My sister’s ex appears every day and nags me with questions about how to grow things. He tells me that he hopes to inherit the other part of the farm. I think: NO!!!

The rest of my family appears after a week, but very little interesting happens. I complain that when i have used so much time on this, there will be no vacation days left for summer! I decide to go back to Bodø immediately.

My father doesn’t worry at all about when the train leaves. I pack quickly and run around looking for Shiva, but nobody notices. Nobody seems to remember that Shiva even exists! I get dumb looks when i ask for her. She isn’t in any of the bedrooms, and nobody can remember letting her out…i slowly realise where she is.

The door to the food storage room in the basement is nailed shut because alcohol has been disappearing from it. I call for Shiva, and hear scratching from behind the door! I know that the house owners will probably think i am the alcohol thief, but the cat needs to get out, and i end up using a fire axe. I summoned the axe as in a lucid dream: “there will be a fire axe on the wall of the other room”, but didn’t realise it.

We finally drive to the station. The train is already in the station when we arrive, and i grab Shiva and run! It is no use, the train speeds away from me. I run after it to the end of the platform and fall down, exhausted and desperate.

It was past 11 and i needed to get up anyway… :roll: [/spoiler]

Video-gamer gets 20 points, the gate does not give you points, you have to open it :tongue:

[spoiler]1. (after doing WBTB) I felt myself drifting into my dream, sorta a WILD type thing, and i rubbed my dream hands (i was still lying in bed in my dream) i got out of bed, went out my bedroom door and upstairs, and to my refrigerator. it was morning, and i heard a garbage truck outside. i opened the fridge, telling myself i would find “dream drinks” (like to increase lucidity, grow, shrink, transform, develop 360 vision, etc…) but unfortunately the only abnormal thing was a pizza box with some stale cheese pizza in it. i put it back and checked the pantry to see if i could find anything of use in there, but the most useful thing was mustard. (mustard helps with dream recall and vividness) i opened the mustard bottle and was about to squirt some in my mouth when i woke up.
2. i fell asleep after the previous dream pretty quickly, doing the WILD thing again. i got out of my bed, went upstairs, and noticed that the front door was hanging wide open. i was about to go outside when i noticed i was much taller than the top of the door frame. just for the sake of experimentation, i tried to imagine myself growing even taller, becoming a giant. unfortunately, i woke up because i was just standing there concentrating on trying to get bigger.
3. i was sitting in the parking lot of my old high school in a truck. i had a gun in my hand, i was on watch duty while my partner in crime robbed the school or whatever he was doing. the principal came out of the school, i pocketed the gun quickly but not fast enough. the principal’s eyes went wide and he reached into his pocket and grabbed his cell phone. i jumped out of the truck and ran into the school in search of a good hiding place. at this point my dream skipped to me already being caught. there were three or four cops and the principal of the school standing around talking to me, reprimanding me. at this point i realized i was dreaming because i should have been going to jail at least, not just this stern warning. my partner was standing next to me, he said “don’t let it happen again.” i mumbled some reply like “sure sure whatever” but i was already concentrating on my dream goals. i walked through the halls of the school, trying to find someone interesting to talk to, but for some reason i had trouble with getting my feet to touch the ground. it was like i was standing on pillows of air. suddenly i started spinning around on my axis, but i couldn’t get the friction from my feet so i could stop spinning. i thought, well, at least spinning prolongs dreams! finally i managed to reach the ground with my toes and stop myself from spinning. back to the quest of finding an interesting person! i came by a couple people who i’d gone to high school with, then finally a beautiful girl about my age. she was talking with a friend, and i was about to interrupt their conversation. i remembered that it’s very difficult to stay in a dream about sex, so i decided just to hold hands with her and talk, see if she had any deep insights for me. unfortunately i woke up.[/spoiler]

Nice dreams :tongue: I give you 95 points (5 feel, 90 for 3 LD’s :cool_laugh:)

I liked the dream where you tried to become a giant, but woke up :puh:

sorry to confuse you but i think that the second one only deserved 20 pts, i don’t think it was more than 10 seconds.

I’m not sure if I’m posting this late or anything, but last night I had an LD:

SPOILER - Click to view

I was in a store and remembered the challenge, I walked into a room that was displaying furniture, and summoned a door and said “behind this door will be something great”, however when I opened the door, it was just another ‘display room’ with furniture, and I felt really disappointed because I was hoping to see something more meaningful, so I left the room and saw another door, a tiiiny door, the size of one of those cartoon holes in the wall where mice hide, and I was excited and tried to open it. The door broke apart and behind it was a mouse hole[spoiler]

30 points you get, and youre not late until day 16 :wink:

Good dream you had and sorry for the door :hug:

i know! i was so bummed out when i realized i didn’t open it, or couldn’t get it open. but at least i got lucid points. and i will again, for i had another LD! but i forgot about the challenge…

NOTE: i did WBTB before this.
1)i’m fighting dinosaurs at a service station :lol: . i know i’m dreaming and they are ganging up on me so i turn into an anklosaurus and knock them out.
i woke up but didn’t move so i fell asleep quickly.
2)i’m sitting in my bed about to go to sleep and i do the nose check (that was basically a repeat of the WBTB) and it proves i’m dreaming. then my Nintendo DS rings like a phone so i pick it up and i can see how different it looks. it also functions weirdly. then my phone vibrates so i do the clock RC with it and the time is 106.45. i put my phone and DS back on the bedside table. i sit there looking at my room and i notice that many of my things are broken in half and misplaced. also, the stuffed bear i got as a gift is talking! i look at my door and it’s ajar and i see shadows behind it. i fear that they could be anything, monster, murderer or whatever, because it’s nighttime (my nightmares tend to be at nighttime). then the bear says to me “Don’t be afraid, just don’t open the door.”(completely the opposite of what i should have done!) after that i get out of bed and jump around and float down. my dad comes in and sees what i’m doing so he doesn’t say anything and leaves. i wait for a bit then try spinning to a new scene because i don’t like the night. however my cat interrupts me, because i realize that she shouldn’t be here since she’s passed away. i miss her dearly and want to pat her but she’s swiping the air with her claws and i don’t want to get hurt by her. i decide to just fly out my window and fly into space. there are lots of galaxies and a womans voice is in my head saying things i can’t understand. the excitement of seeing such vivid colours and flying in space wakes me up.

i wish i had more control over dream 2. i need to find a way to change night to day

hi had a lucid dream last night!!!

any way here it is

[spoiler] i had too dreams and the first one wont get me any points but i have to say it to explain the second dream.

  1. i was in school in my homeroom/science teachers room it was early in the morning and we were talking about stuff (cant remember what) but i do remember that when i left he said meet me at school tomrrow morning, i said okay and left.
    this was when i woke up.
    i woke up at 3:00 AM<–(duh) i looked at my clock and fell back asleep.
  2. i was in a strange hallway the looked like one youed see on the enterprise in star trek. me and my friend Alex were standing around talking, suddenly we here an explosion and like 20 people run around a corner and away from us, this is when i said to myself “hey im on a giant spaceship with my friend with explosions and people running like crazy, i think im dreaming” of course i went lucid. i ran around the corner to see what all the DCs were screaming about, but i remembered the challenge, so i decided that there would be a door around the corner i went over and there was an unlocked door i said this, isnt very good so i turned around when i looked again the door said RESTRICTED AREA, and it had a large padlock i used my locker combo from school and the padlock opened inside the door was a guard who told us the place was restricted, i was about to say okaay and turn around when my friend alex kicked him… in places. We ran around him and down a hallway at the end of the hallway was my science teacher (again) he took me and my friend into an elevator and we went in a somewere. when we came out of the elevator we were in the classroom that i was in, in my earlier dream i was freaked out and woke up. :sad: [/spoiler]

I had a few lucid dreams last night, was good fun.
So in the dream i was standing, lucid, on the road outside my old old old house (the one I grew up in as a kid)
and i was next to the neghbour’s front door because that’s right next to the pavement. And i remembered this challenge, so i tried the front door and it was locked. (in the dream it was night and seemed to be quite late) i thought to myself that next time i tried the door, it would open and tried again. As i pushed it open, someone on the other side slammed it shut again (made me jump!) and i decided not to bother with that one. So i went up to my old old old house and tried the front door. I commanded it to be unlocked and then tried it and it opened.
Inside was the hallway of a very old run-down house, that looked nothing like it should do. It was completely dark inside and i kept trying to command it to be lighter but it wouldnt work. so i commanded my lucidity to increase so i would have more control and tried again. It still wouldnt work, i couldn’t see inside so i gave up that one as pointless. I tried to conjure a door in mid-air but this never works for me. So i decided to teleport to a hallway of doors, and open each of them in turn in an effort to get as many points as possible :tongue:
and i nearly teleported there, the hallway of doors was swimming in front of my vision and then i woke up. damn!
good task.
