Just popping in to say that this challenge is brilliant!
Here’s three NDs. No hats yet, but I’m aiming for Notch’s.
Can I still join? (I know it already started but I don’t mind being a few days behind)
Edit: I find it very hard to judge how long a dream is. I guess my average is about 3 minutes. My personal goal would be to bend the elements in a LD (so like shooting fire from my hand, make a wall of water, let air lift me up and easily throw boulders around.)
Ditto…Ive been off track lately.
Ansie, I can add you in, no problem. You can start with this first task, I’ll count anything you post after this as being towards it.
Koharo, just need a goal and average dream length, then I’ll add you in. Just try to get that to me before I announce the second task on Saturday.
After this though, no more new entries, I think 15 is a good number
Just under 40 hours left until I post the next task; tallying of scores will come shortly thereafter.
[color=green]I couldnt really calculate my LD time I’ll go out on a limb and say my average is 4-5 minutes.
My LD goal for this event is to shuffle (the dance). [/color]
I will do my best to find a hat this night then
I became lucid when I saw that my feet were highly distorted. Unfortunately, I got excited and woke up within just a few seconds.
I think this fits the description of “You become lucid but wake up shortly after or lose lucidity very quickly”
Two MOAR short lucids with the most recent being lost and saved twice.
Also, took some military guy’s hat in an ND, did not wear it though.
Only a fragment.
One long lucid and one medium lucid over the past two days
Only a Fragment and a ND here.
Ditto…but its better than when I was getting nothing at all…I’ll try again
Task 2 - Surfs Up
Summer’s nearly over (for most of us), so let’s give it one last hurrah and catch a few waves.
Acquire your surfboard - 5 pts
Find/Create waves to ride - 5 pts
Attempt to surf them, but fail - 5 pts
Successfully surf one - 10 pts
Successfully surf multiple - 20 pts Note: “One” or “Multiple” is an either or, not both.
Do some tricks - 5 pts each, up to 20 pts
Enjoy another adventure resulting from surfing - 5 pts
This task will close and the next will be posted next Saturday, around 18:00 GMT.
Scores coming soon.
Does it still make sense (point wise) to do the previous one?
^ Double post demon.
Here’s two NDs. No hats. No surfing…
I had a short lucid dream last night. (Length: 2 minutes.)
SPOILER - Click to view
[color=blue]A friend is showing me around some mansion, delivering this nonstop harangue about the lack of baby proofing. I’m surprised by how angry she is until we reach a second floor balcony that overlooks a huge courtyard with a fountain. Next to the railing is a strange device that invites a baby to crawl onto it and then extends over the edge of the railing to “give the baby a better view” by dangling them hazardously over the side.
Now that I’ve seen this dangerous contraption, I get why she’s so mad. Now I’m fuming too. But when I’m done whining and stop to study my surroundings again, I notice that I’m no longer in a mansion. I’m now alone on the second floor of a shopping mall. I don’t understand how I got there. Everything looks very real, though, so I decide I’m probably not dreaming. I reality check “just in case” and I’m astonished when it fails. I hit a second nose pinch. This also fails and I think, “No way. I just did it wrong.” Third try fails [/color][color=red]and now I’m finally lucid.
I’m shocked that this is a dream and my vision immediately goes black. I start rubbing my hands together, determined not to let this go. I test my dream body in a variety of ways to keep myself tethered to the dream: I rub my hands over my elbows, flick my teeth with my fingernail, lick my arm, flex and prod at my muscles, slap myself in the face. Everything works and I feel solidly locked in – I just can’t see anything. This goes on for quite some time and I’m having trouble staying calm.
Unsure what to do, I extend my right hand and plead for help. “I can’t see. Please, somebody help me.” Seconds later, someone grabs my hand, gives it a hard yank, and I stumble forward, my vision fully restored.
Of all people, my rescuer is Julia Roberts (an actress that I do not particularly like and haven’t thought of in years.) I suddenly feel like a jerk for not really liking her work.
We’re on a dilapidated pier by the seaside. I demand “Super high-def!” from the dream scene and everything sharpens nicely. I hear the creak of beams and the slap of seawater against the piers, as well as the distant cry of gulls. I know that I’m right on the water and think of getting to the Cretaceous seas!
Julia Roberts shouts at me that “You’re almost out of time!” and runs off down the pier. I run after her, searching for some way to get to the open water. Dream characters peer at me from stalls on the sides of the pier, murmuring incomprehensibly to one another as I pass. I keep running, wondering whether I need to try something drastic to change things in my favor. Soon [/color]the dream fades to black, this time for good.
I had an average LD on the last topic.
Time: about 5 minutes
Goal accomplished: To shuffle (the dance)
Objective: I recall suddenly wearing a hat, but I didnt take it.
