I was in an old school when I suddenly thought that something wasn’t right and
did a RC(Counting my fingers, same as always). I pushed someone away, and
lost my lucidity directly after that.
Also I had just too much ND’s after that so I can’t recall more
I had a relatively pretty long LD, though it wasn’t very vivid. I saw a city which had an enormous skyscraper made of an odd clear glass. I would definitely call it grand for sure. Not a lot of other things happened, though. Just a lot of exploring. The DC’s weren’t feeling very talkative.
I had a medium-length LD here in which I decided to attempt the egg task Yoshi-style again, but couldn’t manage it because I wasn’t lucid enough to ignore waking-life morals with regards to consuming people.
I had a short LD last night. I completed the current LD4all quest. Specifically, I finished the LD4all Quest #6 Unfold Your Wings and Fly task by flying, which of course meets the requirements of the current LD4all quest. I also saw something inspiring, although it is hard to describe accurately. I traveled through a mirror, and when I got to the other side there was a wall in front of me that was a similar color to the background here on LD4all. There were stars on it, but they were supposed to be real stars and they moved around and twinkled. That’s probably the best that I can describe it.
For receiving points for completing the LD4all quest, do I have to post in the quest forum, or is this post sufficient?
[spoiler]Short LD: 3
–part 2 L & E
–part 3 L & E
Combo pts: 1
LD4all Quest: Completed [/spoiler]
Sorry for the delay in responding. I’ve been crazy busy lately. The sum of the LD that was chained was still short overall, not medium.
I’m not sure if I’m expected to keep the same definition of “grand” from one LD to the next, but I had a short LD here in which I saw my DCs spontaneously enact a coordinated dance number without any prior planning from me. I see that my biggest competitors also LDed this morning, so I’m going to need to do a lot more to stay competitive.
I completed the monthly Quest by finishing Quest 17 through a long LD. Now, in that Quest I looked up and saw the sky as an aquarium, which rocks, though I don’t know how to rate that on the current task . Either way, I didn’t earn any more points than last time, so LD points it is
Two short LD’s.
By some miracle, I think i actually pulled off the bonus task.
I’d say the wormhole was pretty grand during my ND, but also the binding in my LD was pretty uh… pretty. (grand it’s own way, i would say)
Well since the cat is out of the bag for those who frequent IRC I suppose I’ll let everyone in on more of the finer points of the details.
I was hoping to make this challenge a goal to improve the “quality” of ones LDs over the “quantity” thereof. I recall having very few out of my recorded LDs in which the detail was superb and the images lasting. There are a few, yes, and sure it all feels lifelike, but the detail of it all is lacking… or at least the recalled detail.
So, I’ve put together a series of tasks to try to alleviate that problem. Hopefully. But before you read the second task I’d advise you read the following:
SPOILER - Click to view
So… a heavy emphasis in all of the following tasks will be on the description you give to me of the event. The aim of this challenge is not to recall what happened in your LDs, but to recall HOW it happened. So, without further ado, here’s task two.
Task 2: Sound
Countless numbers of my DJ entries feature a line like the following:
“Don’t recall the exact wording.” Other sounds, among dialogue, are also equally blurred. We recall “hearing birds chirping” but after awaking we can’t recall how that chirp sounded.
This week’s task will charge you with listening to the world around you. You will need to report on the quality, intensity, and fidelity of a sound or sounds.
[b]1. Hear a Conversation or Dialogue + 15
Hear some Music or Singing + 20
Listen to the Silence + 40
In order to gain points for this task you have to report about the sound and not just that you heard it. For conversation I’m looking for exact wordings, and other details like tone of voice. For music, while song lyrics can be reported, details about the instrumental such as its tempo can be reported as well as if it sounded familiar.
For the last, part, however, you will most likely have to be lucid. You will need to find a quiet place to stop and listen, and report the various sounds you heard. For all the task parts, however, detail is key so please include as much detail as you can.
Great job on the previous bonus! More people completed it than I thought would. This week’s bonus…
* Find the recipe for a pizza sandwich!
Find any kind of recipe your mind comes up with (for a “pizza sandwich”). In order to earn bonus points for this task more than once the recipe will have to be found differently each time.
This task will run for one week until approximately 6 PM EST, Sunday, September 1, 2013. Good luck!
First, the creativity points go to… Thorn! for his “Yoshi” method of laying an egg. I thought that it was very clever…
And now, the scores!

You may have noticed my name at the end of the list. While I will not be competing “officially” nor will I be eligible for creativity points, under the suggestion of a friend I will, in my own words, “get in the LC” for the heck of it.
Under no circumstance will I be eligible to host the next LC. I’m just curious (and would like the competition boost very much) about participating again. If anyone has any problems about this let me know. I’ll “remove” myself from the public scoreboard.
Well now. Sound seems to be my most lacking of senses when it comes to recall, so this will be quite a challenge.
And I am actually not quite surprised at my score. Thorn, you may have been intimidated by my length and frequency of LDs, but as I had made mention of before, I do not have the discipline to complete goals and tasks.
I have a feeling I am going to fall behind rather quickly.
Also, with the way you explained it Scipio, I actually like what you’re doing here. Personally, it’s far more effective and beneficial for me than just simply trying to fly, or conjuring a giant candy cane.
Smell is the only sense that is lacking in my dreams and it’s my worst sense in waking life too. It might have been damaged, not sure. Sounds are present in many of my dreams and I recall often having conversations so this is a great task for me.
This morning’s DJ entry starts with a short LD that does not accomplish any tasks, then has an extremely vivid ND that has conversations, music, and singing. I wouldn’t recommend going through the awful sleep interruptions I had before these dreams just to get such dreams, as I woke up feeling like I was hit by a train.
Actually, the Task 2 Part 2 is “music OR singing”, so since my ND had me sing and then play music, I get credit twice, right? RIGHT?
/me is truited for asking when he knows the answer is “no”.
