Lucidity Challenge 37: Winner - Scipio Xaos! Congrats!

I hope I am not too late to sign up…
15.GigaByte, 2 minutes, see the future and save the present

I had a lucid moment last night, no magic and no flight.

Oh. Wait. Are there any points awarded for False Lucids? I had one of those a few days ago. :razz:

A Disappointing False Lucid

Welcome GigaByte to the LC. We still have room for 5 more people.

I don’t consider FLD to be part of the point system. However, they do seem similar to wondering if you’re dreaming, seeing as though it seems that you are “aware” on some level that you’re in a dream. I am willing to alter the point system to include +5 pts for each FLD; however, I will leave it up to you guys as to whether you would like this added to LC 37. Post here or PM me your vote as to whether FLD should be included. If no one votes, then it won’t be added, and if there is a tie, then I will make the decision myself. The deadline for voting is when I post the third task on Sunday night. PM me if you have any questions about this.

squoak i think my average time is like 5-10 minutes but i’m not sure, and my goal is change where I am via spinning around and being there

Hi squoak, you’ve been added. We still have room for 4 more people if anyone wants to join.

As I have gotten some PM votes from people not in the LC, I thought it best to also announce that the voting is only open to those in LC 37, as they are the ones affected by the change. If you want to add it to future LC, then win the challenge so you can be the TM. Thanks for the interest though to those who wanted to vote. :smile:

Well I’ll just vote in here. Seems simplest. :razz: I wouldn’t mind FLDs counting for five points. It does have some relevance to lucid dreams and almost having them.

HeadInTheClouds:

Well actualy I’ve done the task in reality. And in reality I’ve already flown on an airplane, so it counts for task 3… So I wasn’t lucid, I wasn’t even dreaming actually… I wonder if it would count thought…

Hi Cyclonic,
The task must be accomplished in a dream, whether lucid or not, in order to count for points. Things done IRL don’t count. My understanding is that you have not flown in your dreams during the LC, so you have yet to score any points. If I am misunderstanding something, then please PM me so we can clear it up.

I randomly saw a glimpse of you in sort of like a window, like the forum avatar. You had long dirty blonde hair. Either you had green or blue eyes, can’t recall now. But you were just smiling and slighly wobbling around. Your username was right below the window. :tongue:

Thanks to someone, Thorn I was reminded that task related NDs can be qualified for points. :razz:

I had a dream in which I drank some sort of fluid that transformed me into a raven. DCs tried to kill me but I managed to escape by busting through a ceiling and flying off.

[spoiler]A more detailed version. In the dream I found a neat ol’ looking glass bottle filled with a clear liquid. I drank some and suddenly the remaining liquid in the bottle turned into a golden honey like colour which glowed brightly. Not long after my body lifts off the ground and glows golden/transparent-y with twinkles of light dancing around. It took a bit, but my body transformed into the body of a large raven, this happens with a bunch of awestruck DCs standing around.

Once my transformation was complete, the DCs took out their guns and shot at me. In confusion and fear I hopped around and managed to walk on the ceilings backwards avoiding the bullets. Eventually I broke through the garage and flew freely with my wings, and occasionlly perching on houses. :razz:[/spoiler]

Does ski jumping count as flying?

  18. demented, under a minute, get a decent LD

another late registration ;3

demented, generally average would be under a minute :confused:, get a decent LD (a dream, that I would consider I am fully satisfied with, enough for me to want to wake up on my own will.)
also if possible a mini personal goal, remember to drink a levander potion (whatever it is) that i think fixato once gave me like half a year ago.

Hi StarryGwee,
Was that a way that you’ve never flown before? If so, I can give you points for #2 of task 1. You already completed #1 and #3 for that task, so the only way to continue earning points from flying is to do it in ways you have never done before.

Again, here is my definition of flying. If in your opinion, after reading the definition you believe you were flying, then yes it counts. If you believe you have met the definition of flying, then let me know if it is a way that you have done before in a dream.

As the dictionary on my computer put it: Fly - move through the air under control.

Welcome demented :welcome:
If and when you complete your first goal, you can PM me this mini personal goal as a second personal task and you will then be able to earn points for it.

I’m a bit confused here, as I planned my Task 1 under the belief that it did not work like this. Your first post states:

Because of this, I planned my first task dream assuming that I needed to switch flight methods mid-dream to earn both the 40 and the 20 points; doing them in two separate dreams would be two instances of the 40 points and thus would only count once. I remember being sad that in order to maximize points, I needed to minimize time spent enjoying any one flight method. Is it actually individual parts of tasks that only count the best attempt?

Hi Thorn,
I’m sorry for any confusion. There are 4 parts to Task 1. The first time that you fly in a way that you’ve never flown before, you complete part 1 and gain 40 pts. When you fly in another way that you’ve never flown before (it has to be different than the way you flew in part 1), you will complete part 2 and gain 20 pts. Part 3 is completed as soon as you fly in a dream, as long as that flight does not fulfill part 1 or part 2. Part 3 grants 10 pts. When the first three parts are completed, then every time you fly in a unique way, you gain an extra 5 pts, thereby repeatedly completing part 4 of the task. Part 1, 2, and 3 can only be completed once, while you can continually rack up points every time you fly uniquely with part 4.

One or multiple parts of the task can be completed in the same dream. Therefore, if you fly in a way you never have before, then switch to a different method of flying that you’ve never done before, and finally switch to a different way of flying, assuming that you have not completed any tasks yet, you would gain points for parts 1, 2, and 3. Additionally, because you completed more than one part of a task in the same dream, you get a combo bonus.

I think this answers your question, but if it doesn’t and you’re still confused, let me know. Hopefully this helps. Also, according to my scoring, you have completed part 1 and part 3 of the task. So, if you fly during this LC in a way you never have before, then you will also complete part 2 of task 1. Each time after that you will gain points for each time you fly in a way you never have before, but they will instead fulfill part 4 which allows for multiple completions, at a reduced rate of points. If you’ve flown in a way you never have before during the LC, regardless of whether you had met any other part of the task earlier in the dream, then please post it so I can add that to your score.

^ So if I’m understanding right, you’re treating each part of a task as the old LCs would treat an entire task, but some of the wording in the first page still talks about whole tasks instead of the parts simply because it’s been copy/pasted for 37 different LCs. That’s fine; I prefer what you’re doing over the old method! I just wish I’d known that before I thought I had to change flight methods repeatedly in one dream. I discussed as much with other LC participants in chat, and that’s why I had that sadness of not being allowed to enjoy any one method for long; I assumed that multiple LDs of a task didn’t stack in the way you actually are stacking them, provided the parts of the task are different.

Thank you for clearing that up.

@HeadInTheClouds, Yep, I’ve never flown as a raven before. I don’t know if I deserve points for that though, since it was only an ND~

This afternoon I had a mid-length LD. About 3-4 mins. I attempted the expecto patronum spell at least 5 times without success. I only managed a spark. I also flew a broomstick lol. (Never done that before).

[spoiler]Starting from the most interesting part of my ND… I was in some sort of huge mansion with plenty of DCs. We were all being chased by Jotunns/ Frost Giants (Result from watching Thor, till 2am with friends :razz:) These frost giants either killed or tried to convert us to their kind. They looked exactly how they were depicted in the movie, pale blue creatures with red eyes.

It was very chaotic. I was caught by one giant, he grasped my wrist looking at me with a smile and snarled. From where he touched me, a pale blue colour started to spread from the wrist to the rest of my arm. I managed to pull away and escape. Eventually the room began to clear up, there was only one giant left in the room chasing 2 other girls I recognized as my friends. Luckily, being petite, I was able to hide behind a pillar on the second floor of the mansion. I watched the giant chase my two friends on the first floor to another room. The giant briefly stopped to sniff around my hiding spot, but went back to chasing.

I decided to go after my friends, in hopes to help somehow. I followed their path, but was lost shortly after. I was in a dark narrow hallway heading to a semi-open door. I slowly poked my head through the crack of the door and checked left-right. It was just another hallway that was perpendicular to the one I was at.

From the far left there was a room with people. I quickly retracted my head fearing they might be the converted Jotunns. I peeked a couple more times and concluded they were not. I quickly ran into the room and waved my hands frantically telling them to be quiet.

In the room laid a little boy and girl on a sort of bed on the ground. They told me that they had authority over the Jotunns, but sometimes the Jotunns don’t listen to them. These little kids gave off a very special presence. They were very calm and I knew I was safe.

I stopped to perform my hand RC, counting one hand I find 10 fingers lol. Usually I have 6-7, so it was pretty epic. Realizing I was only dreaming made me so relieved. I rubbed my hands together to stabilize and got myself out of there, all around me was a patterned stained glass window. I shattered through it with outstretched arms to flap…but then thought…hey! I should fly a broom. With a command, I called out to a broom. Nearing the ground a broom comes just in time to catch me. I briefly zoomed around a farm-like pasture. I got myself to the ground and imagined up a wand and called out, “Expecto Patronum!” while flinging my wrist. Nothing happens. I do this about 2-3 more times. The best I got was a little silver/blue spark at the end of my wand. Suddenly Dumbledore appears out of nowhere along with another DC. He hands me a new wooden wand. He then teaches me how to perform the spell. I try a few more times but it just doesn’t work. He tells me to pronounce it correctly and quickly. He demonstrates flicking his wrist in an instant while saying the spell. The DC that appeared with him tried to learn the spell as well. I keep trying but eventually wake up. [/spoiler]

I had a short LD this morning, and realise that yesterday’s dream was half lucid. I did wonder if it was a dream. Since the LD broke a nightmare, I had no motivation to do any task apart from simply enjoying the peace.

last time i slept i flown on a horse D:. not sure if there was any flying through air, but it was through some interdimensional gateway portal thingy, or was it some time portal? anyway, at some point, or before that, this flying action was not on a horse, but in some flying device, maybe a bus or a car, dont remember.

it was a normal dream, i think this would count as two flying methods i never done before, if any.
