[center]Task 5 – Parallel Self[/center]
Welcome to task 5! This task is less focused than most, but I came up with a few things I thought would be interesting to do in a LD. The first two parts of the task have been adapted from previous LCs. They seemed to cool to pass up. I also wanted to add a couple other things to the task as well.
The main goal this week is to find a parallel version of you. You can do this anyway you please, as long as the person is a parallel version of you. They don’t even have to look like you; they could be some old werewolf version of you for all I care. Basically, what is essential is that you know that the DC is a parallel version of yourself.
The second part of this week’s task requires you to go to the moon and moonwalk (the dance move). The third part requires you to walk, run, or fly in the rain. For those who have never done this, you don’t know what you’re missing. Personally, being in the rain in my LDs is one of the funnest things to do. Although it seems simple and stupid, it can be quite fun. Same goes for the next part of the task, where you must feel the sun on your skin. The final part of the task requires you to transform a DC into something. It can be whatever you want as long as you transform a DC.
+10 pts creativity will be awarded to the person who comes up with the most interesting transformation for a DC. +5 pts creativity will be awarded for the person with the second most creative transformation. Additionally, if you use what I deem to be a creative method for finding your parallel self, then I will award you +5 pts.
Here is the breakdown for this task’s points:
- Find a parallel version of yourself – +40 pts
- Go to the moon and moonwalk – +20 pts
- Walk, run, or fly in the rain – +10 pts
- Feel the sun on your skin – +10 pts
- Transform a DC – +10 pts (+5 pts per tick each time thereafter)[/b]
To be clear, on part 5 of the task, you get +10 pts for the first time you complete it. Each time thereafter, you get +5 pts per tick. A helpful hint would be that you could score a combo bonus by finding your parallel self and then transforming that parallel DC.
Alright, I know this week is a hodgepodge of tasks, but hopefully everyone will find them fun. Trust me on parts 3 & 4, as those tasks can be surprisingly fun. We are nearing the end of the LC as there are only two more tasks left after this week. As I am going to be extremely busy over these last few weeks, I may need to extend one of the tasks for an extra week. If this is the case, then I will post around the same time I post the tasks and announce the extension, as well as a bonus task for that extended week. Scores and creativity points will be coming soon, but as I said, I am extremely busy, so it may take a few days.
