Lucidity Challenge 42—Winner: Wyvern!

[color=olive]…V2 will take a bit to update, but the LC has had a tendency to get me a fired up, and there are things to get done on the other side.
With that said…

Koharo - 5min - Action - *Pt1. Train Thorn in the art of fire Pt2. Successfully use the fire element

*My first goal is a two part goal to be completed in order. It can be completed in separate dreams, but must be in that order to get credit for my first goal.[/color]

^ Considering some naturals are competing this time, I think you’ll find tougher competition than that from your last time in the LC. Best of luck!

Had a pretty good night last night. Well, morning this morning, but I digress.

One long LD. I was checking my phone for the time when [LD] I realized I must still be in bed. I jumped out and immediately began rubbing my hands. Unlike normal, as soon as I was outside of my room, my apartment was nearly identical to RL.

I made my way past the cat, who looked amazingly uninterested in the dream, and walked outside.

Instead of seeing my normal balcony, I had a stone staircase covered in ivy. As I walked down them, I found my dream apartment was apparently several stories up. When I looked up from the bottom, I was apparently at the bottom of a stone tower.

I checked my phone and saw the date (4/23, which was the night before), and estimated that in one week it would be 4/30.

I hit myself on some kind of overhang[/LD] EDIT: I hit the overhang because I had changed the size of my head to make it larger. I ended up making it mostly wider, though I still felt the height.[LD] as I walked out and tried to think of other tasks. I remembered I should find a fortune teller and walked out. While the back of my apartment had the right lawn, the building itself looked like castle ruins.

I kept walking forward, clapping my hands and telling myself to stay in the dream. I saw a girl running toward a hedge and thought she might be a fortune teller, but she was gone before I could catch her.

The dream began to fade, but I kept it by looking at my hands. I found myself on an average street at sunset.

I then tried to do my team’s incubation by calling Wyvern. I told myself he’d be there when I turned around, but I saw nothing.

A black van sped past me. I willed the driver to stop and turn around. He pulled into a driveway and backed out, facing me. I was going to use the van to try to regenerate.

It sped toward me, but as it was about to hit me, it dodged out of my way. I was so frustrated.[/LD] I woke up.

I also had two short LD’s. In both of them, I WILD’ed in the same method as before. In both, I lost the dream but saved it by rubbing my hands. I actually did that 4 times in the second, but as I understand the scoring, losing and regaining only counts once.

And that’s it.

Edit tldr: 1 long LD, guessed the date, made my head larger, and two short LDs, both with losing and regaining.

^ Got it. The scores are updated.

I had been kind of lazy/distracted/busy the past few days, but today I managed to get my dream journal caught back up again. [

In that time, I had medium length lucid dream where DEILD was involved, another medium length lucid dream, and two long lucid dreams. In the most recent lucid, I visited the astral plane and visited a fortune teller named Magnia. Unfortunately I forgot to bring an LC teammate with me. I did learn and experience a bunch of new things though. It was a great trip.

12 * 12 = 144. In remainder of those ~2 mins i failed to remember any other task. As well as I was unable to remember right after woke up and tried to deild… i gotta suspicion that im gonna deild soon :3

Okay, I’ve updated everybody’s scores. I intend to put Task 2 up in about 12 hours, so if you wake up from an amazing dream before then and want to get it counted for your team, be sure to make a quick post saying what you did even if you don’t get the entire dream posted.

Since the last visit:

-I have had 1 medium LD, 1 short LD and 1 lucid moment. No chaining.

I haven’t had access to LD4all in the past days and might have gotten some of the tasks wrong, but my mind has been very persistent with this and LC related things have seeped into more than half of my remembered dreams this week:

-I have calculated the date in 1 week while lucid. Not spoken to DCs about it
-I have calculated three multiplication problems while lucid, no help from DCs though
-I have communicated telepathically with a DC, while lucid. I couldn’t hear hos thoughts, so I don’t know if it counts.
-I have shapeshifted to an Elf, who is said to have telepathic power, while lucid.
-I have moved a car by using the power of thought to “animate” it, while lucid. This is very familiar to my dreams and should probably not count.

…I have also had several dreams about doing colour coded tasks, having my brain scanned, my thoughts being exposed to the public, calculating train tables, etc.

I haven’t managed to visit a fortune teller or the astral plane. I’ll try to copy the fractal eclipse.

The dreams are here.

I have explained to you in private how I wasn’t completely honest about my motives for signing up. You are of course free to remove me from the competition. Even if I signed up because I wanted so much to host, this has at least tripled my LD frequency, so maybe I can follow the tasks without being a potential winner/host? My computer time will still be limited, possibly up to 1.may.

Siiw, I’m not going to remove you from the competition just because you want to host. Most LC participants want to host the next LC. Fact. I had no plans to bring up our private talks in here and will not be judging you based on the contents of them, but since you’ve brought them up, I remember that some of it related to favoritism toward certain people. Removing you or limiting your ability to host would be favoring others, and I would never do that.

I can’t count your points for telepathy, as the subtask specifically asked for hearing the thoughts of others. I will also not count the “animation” per your request. Everything else is fine.

With Task 2 about to go up, I feel that I should provide a list of scores for anybody who can’t see the scoreboard. If you need the scores in text like this, please tell me, and I will make it in future weeks. If not, then I will let the scoreboard do the talking.1. Lucidis (605)

  1. Rhewin (395)
  2. Wyvern (380)
  3. Siiw (210)
  4. Scipio Xaos (130)
  5. demented (100)
  6. Eterna (80)
  7. ian1 (30)
  8. Letaali (20)
  9. James_UK2008 (20)
  10. paual (5)
  11. Yev, mr_Block, HeadInTheClouds, Loah, drd, Koharo (0)
    The Action team averaged 2.67 Task 1 subtasks per member and will get a bonus subtask in the next post. The Traveler team averaged 1.75 and the Shapeshifter team managed 0.33.

I’ll put up Task 2 shortly! Congratulations to everybody who has scored so far!

Task 2: Brawn

You worked your brain last week; now you’ll work your body. Strength is theoretically unlimited in dreams, but can you break your mental schema of what your own limitations are?* Perform an exercise: 20 points

  • Smash something sturdy with pure strength: 20 points
  • Lift/move something heavy that is anchored to the ground, e.g., a tree or a building, via physical contact: 40 points
  • (Bonus for winning Task 1) Try to stay inbounds! Compete in something won by moving an opponent out of bounds (e.g., tug-of-war or sumo wrestling): 40 points
  • View or compete in a sporting event based on strength (boxing, wrestling, sumo wrestling, etc.): 40 points
  • Grow visible muscles throughout your entire body (i.e., not just in one or two body parts) or transform into a strong creature: 30 points
  • Sci-fi films, horror movies, and even Major League Baseball teach that the fastest way to gain strength or supernatural powers is an injection (sanity not guaranteed in the former two settings). Use an injection to initiate a transformation for any other subtask in this LC: 10 points
    Not counting Team Dreams and not counting the bonus for the Action team, which was up for anybody to grab and doesn’t factor into my calculation, there are now 340 total task points for the Action team and 320 for the other teams. One of the teams will catch up to the Action team next week, and remember that by Task 6, everybody will be even in terms of available points.

Lastly, here are the Team Dream requirements for the week.* Action: Decide on something heavy and anchored to the ground to lift/move with a teammate or decide on a sport to compete in that is won or lost based on staying inbounds.

  • Traveler: Decide on a strength-based sporting event to view with a teammate.
  • Shapeshifter: Decide whether you’ll grow muscles via injection or transform into a stronger creature with a teammate. If the latter, specify what creature and remember that you cannot use this creature for points for any other task.
    The winning team this week will have the highest-scoring subtask from an opposing team next week (which will be worth 40 points) also count as its own, effectively avoiding the half-credit stipulation for that task. Remember, only subtasks and Team Dreams from this week will count for this; going back to Task 1 is fine for individual points but will not help the team. As always, best of luck to everybody!

Siiw, if i win ill make you hostess. ^^

had some nice zombie movie dream. again… have no idea why i get those relatively often…

Had a ld this morning that lasted about 5 minutes.

 I was at my church in my hometown, it was night. Then I questioned if i was dreaming, and became lucid. I grabbed a signpost out of the ground and started hitting cars on the road like baseballs, they went flying. Walking down the sidewalk looking for stuff to smash, I started saying "turn the lights on!' to make the sun come out, and after a few times it finally worked. Not thinking the object I grabbed was big enough, I ripped a streetlight out of the ground, and tried to hit more cars, but it was took big. I grabbed the signpost again and hit a couple people. Next I walked into a building,  picked up three people using pk and then threw them. I then broke a window and went back outside. I found a dumpster and picked it up and threw it using pk. I heard someone say "you dont have much time left, the sun is out", I knew this was referring to the real world. 30 seconds later I woke up.

^ It sounds like you had fun. Congrats on getting part of the task done on the first night and for getting points from the previous task! I’ve updated the scores, and you’ve moved up to fourth place. :smile:

A question was raised last night about the Traveler subtask. If you participate in the event in question, you will still earn points unless you were somehow so blinded that you couldn’t view what was going on around you. I do stand by using the word “event”, though, so wrestling with a random DC will not be enough. I also made slight edits to the wording of two other subtasks; any sport won or lost based on going out of bounds will work for the Action team’s bonus subtask, and I clarified “throughout your entire body” for the Shapeshifter team’s first subtask.

Finally, the Shapeshifter team has settled on using another Pokémon for their Team Dream this week. You’ll earn Shapeshifter Team Dream credit for becoming a Machamp alongside a Shapeshifter team member. It’s worth 30 points if you’re on the team and 15 points if you’re not, and will of course get credit for the “strong creature” subtask as well.

Another LD! With another task! :biggrin: Let’s hope things keep up. :content:

Super Saiyan Scipio ~ Medium Lucid Dream ~ Task 2 Part 6 LUCID EARLY

Stats so far:

[spoiler]Short LDs: 1
Medium LDs: 1
Long LDs: 1
Chains: 1

Task 1:-E Did some date math.

^ It sounds like you had fun too. :smile: I expect that everybody will have fun with this, honestly, and I look forward to reading the dream journal entries. The scores are updated, and you’ve moved from sixth place to fifth place.

[color=#F781F3]I had a short ld where I looked around for something to pick up, and was near train tracks. I picked up the railroad block tower thing out of the ground (wow, it weighed as much as a foam bat, it seems. But then again, i have thrown a frozen sun across the galaxy!)

A train was coming down the tracks, so I swung it at the train. I don’t remember what happened to the train though… I think it just disappeared… There was a helicopter that came after me shortly after, in which I hit with it like a baseball… what are those train… stop… blocker things called… where the arm comes down to block the road.

I also asked someone to tell me where mordor was, and they just said “it’s north of here” but i didn’t go looking for it, because for some reason i felt like it didn’t exist… I should have looked though… does that still count as attempting?

Also… for some reason I had twin tails, like i do in my avatar…[/color]

Loah, I’m unsure from your post if you’re claiming points for smashing something sturdy with pure strength, so I haven’t marked those points unless you clarify. Your personal goal also says “simply walk into mordor!” rather than to ask where it is, so it doesn’t sound like you’ve done it; again, tell me if I’m wrong. I’ve updated the scores, and you’ve moved up to 7th place.

Had a long LD last night where I picked up a boulder and smashed a tree. Actually misremembered the picking up something heavy subtask and forgot it had to be anchored, but I did manage to smash something at least!

^ The scores are updated for this as well. You’re still trailing, though!

[color=#F781F3]I want to claim points for smashing a sturdy object. i just wasn’t sure if when you said “smash a sturdy object with pure strength” meant to include the use of something else. more so just your fist, or something… and i won’t claim points for attempting, since i didn’t actually try to walk in. I usually can’t really tell if somelthing qualifies for points or not unless they are straight forward. grey areas kind of confuse me, so maybe i was posting with the idea that you would decide that.

oh! maybe i misunderstood. i thought we got points for attempting our personal goal, but i’m not sure anymore. either way, i didn’t really attempt it anyway :tongue: [/color]
