Lucidity Challenge 42—Winner: Wyvern!

Eterna, I’ve added those points in and updated the scores.

The next task goes up tomorrow!

A lucid moment and a long LD: [

The reason why this dream is “long” compared to the previous “medium” LD is difficult to explain. It felt long, and a large part of it was related to physical feelings in my dream body, sound, and the way those worked together. It is very hard to describe with words. The dream was also so good in itself that I chose not to do challenge stuff.

^ I’ve added the points for these dreams and updated the scores. I’m happy to see so many LDs from everybody!

[color=#F781F3]I had several short ld chains. The ld’s themselves only lasted like a minute or so though, but I kept waking up, then going back to sleep into them…

But like last time all I really did was fly around through houses… but i guess this time i did kind of have a goal of my own, ad that was that i wanted to find unique people. i asked some people to tell me where a blue haired girl was. I did manage to find one girl that was sleeping, though the details are fuzzy… that got me to remember… look for my sister! so I did… and I found a couple of people that had red hair like her, but they were not her at all. they just had red hair… other than that i completely forgot about the LC.[/color]

Had a long LD 2 nights ago. Was a struggle to remember, but I definitely do remember watching Hockey. Unfortunately didn’t remember the Traveler incubation correctly or the members. Scipio was there but he’s on the Shapeshifting team. XD

/me will return if he manages to remember last night’s dream… which he’s pretty sure he did tasks. bah

EDIT: Just realized the sport had to be strength based. Disregard. There wasn’t even a fight in the hockey game. :razz:

Loah, I’ve added a short LD and chaining to your score.

Wyvern, that’s a shame. I mean, if you had gone to a fight and a hockey game broke out, I’d award the points. :tongue:

Gonna claim this before I get to work at least (for the sake of my team. :razz:). Will write out when I get back home…
Was between medium and long, but I’ll just say medium LD.

  • Did an exercise
  • Did tug-of-war with Letaali
  • Watched a fight with Ian1, martial arts were involved, but they were kinda amateurish. XD

My recall is still awfully sketchy… I wonder if I can get it up and running again. Soon, that is.

[color=#F781F3]I had a dream with ld4all members! lots of them.

Ld4all Flagship!

it was just an ND, and unfortunately i don’t think i made any points in it, but i wanted to share it.[/color]

I’ve added in Wyvern’s points. As of right now, the scores are:1. Lucidis (735)

  1. Wyvern (715)
  2. Scipio Xaos (400)
  3. Rhewin (395)
  4. drd (390)
  5. Siiw (325)
  6. Eterna (280)
  7. Loah (260)
  8. HeadInTheClouds (160)
  9. demented (120)
  10. ian1 (50)
  11. Koharo (40)
  12. Letaali, James_UK2008, Hodge_Podge (20)
  13. paual (5)
  14. Yev, mr_Block, Oleg (0)
    The Action team averaged 1.38 Task 2 subtasks per member and will get to do the Travelers’ Task 3 40-point subtask for full credit instead of half as a reward. The Shapeshifter team averaged 1.33 and the Traveler team managed 0.38. My condolences to Scipio Xaos, who very nearly carried his team to victory by himself.

Task 3 will be in the next post!


[title]Task 3: Obligatory LC Eating Task[/title]

You spent last week toning your body; now it’s time to let loose and indulge! I counted at least ten instances of eating and tasting things as prior LC tasks, and there’s a good reason this theme shows up so often. Dream food is the best food, and the best part is that it doesn’t contain a single calorie… unless you want it to. This task shows up in many LCs, so some of the subtasks will feel familiar. However, other LCs don’t have three teams to which to cater, so prepare to tackle this task in a new way!* In the words of the great Bart Simpson, “Eat my shorts!” Take a bite from an article of clothing and swallow it: [color=green]20 points[/color]

  • [color=red]LC eating tasks usually end up with a bunch of point claims from eating the nearest object in sight once lucid. Let’s change it up a bit. Eat junk food (snacks, desserts, or fast food that’s not from the health menu):[/color] [color=green]20 points[/color]
  • [color=#7030C0]Visit a setting based around gigantic food (e.g., a habitable gingerbread house or a world made of huge desserts):[/color] [color=green]40 points[/color] (Action team gets full credit as well for winning Task 2)
  • [color=#7030C0]Even Travelers need an occasional pit stop. Go someplace that serves fast food and/or desserts:[/color] [color=green]30 points[/color]
  • [color=blue]Can you overindulge in lucid dreams? Experience being fat and heavy, and spend some time moving your mass around:[/color] [color=green]30 points[/color] (I will not accept any self-deprecation via saying you’re already fat; if you feel this is actually the case, become comically so for the dream)
    Excluding Team Dreams and team rewards, there are 430 points available so far for the Action team, 435 for the Travelers, and 415 for the Shapeshifters. Remember that by the end of Task 6, all teams will have the same amount of points available given the aforementioned exclusions.

Here are the Team Dream requirements for this week.* [color=red]Action: Agree on what delicious junk food to eat. You and at least one teammate must eat the agreed-upon junk food for points.[/color]

  • [color=#7030C0]Traveler: Decide whether to find gigantic food together or to meet at a fast food / dessert restaurant. You and a teammate must both eat to earn points.[/color]
  • [color=blue]Shapeshifter: Similar to prior weeks, decide whether you’ll simply become fat or transform into a fat creature with a teammate. If the former, give me a passive control method to use with your teammate. If the latter, remember that you cannot use the creature for points for any other task.[/color]
    The winning team this week gets to choose next week’s task theme from two choices: Spheres and Altitude. Place your votes alongside your Team Dream, and the winning team will get the majority vote put in place! If there is a tie vote on the winning team, the choice made by team members with the smaller amount of total points will win to give them a fighting chance. Be sure to think about what each task theme may mean for your team’s subtasks when voting! What does it mean to travel to something related to spheres or to altitude? What kind of shapeshifting might come into play? What sorts of things might the Action team do? Place your votes and try to win!


SC trolled me into giving up onto lucidity forever. Holding and pushing me back in all the ways possible to prevent me from doing any task or any activity of my choice. From “literal” - spikey-bushy getting into my clothes and not letting go, to mystic - hallways leading to same or wrong places, to personal - SC possessed a dc to annoy me with fake information, broken-stuck-record’ey speech (repeating from exact same microsecond and syllable whenever I try to re-ask a question), finally turning into my mom, making me smash her face in and wake up.

All this lasted like 3? 10? 5 minutes? It was long and annoying CLEARLY LUCID dream. I doubt I will ever use lucidity stuff for anything other than escaping and instantly waking up from nightmare.

Last night in a dream I was given the abilities of Dr. Manhattan. The abilities in the dream (not all of them are Dr. Manhattan’s) were flight, gravity manipulation, mind control, teleportation and matter manipulation. I managed use everything else but teleportation and mind control. I moved a heavy object with matter manipulation. I just pointed my hand at the object and “felt it moving” before it moved. Before that I tried to force it to move but the power didn’t work like that. I did see some junk food too but I don’t recall eating any.

Also, I can’t believe that I wasn’t lucid. I made choices and I learned how to use the abilities. Usually everything just works in NDs…this was different. My first time experiencing something like this. I was pretty happy in the dream though.

demented, you know that I don’t believe you should give up lucidity altogether, but this isn’t the place for me to argue. I’ll acknowledge your ragequit, give you the points for the long LD, and mark you as inactive on the scoresheet so that I know not to include you in any team averages.

Letaali, that sounded fun! Hopefully you keep that ability while lucid. :smile:

I’ve updated the scores.

Had an LD here. Not taking the rather amusing ND battle into account, the time whilst lucid was probably no more than 30 seconds.

This LD ties you with Koharo for 12th place. Sorry you didn’t get to space! I’ve updated the scores.

I had a short LD which was mostly spent on singing. No LC tasks done.

Had trouble sleeping last night, but eventually had three(!) medium LDs. :smile: (they weren’t chained or DEILDs).

In one dream I tried to eat a DCs top while she wasn’t looking (which was hilarious!) and in another I visited a McDonalds. In the third LD I tried to complete my personal task and fly competently. I got the hang of it in the end, but don’t feel that I done it well enough to say I completed the task. It felt awesome though, and I’m sure I’ll nail it the next time. :content:

I also had an ND where I used telekinesis on a small car, but since it’s old, and an action team task, and an ND I doubt it’s worth anything but just thought I’d mention it.

My dreams are steadily getting longer again… :peek:

Long LD last night where I was apparently an idiot and confused parts of a simple eating task, but I did my personal goal so at least I got that going for me.

If the teams had their group incubations set up, I could have done them all. A member from every team was present (Letaali, ian1, Scipio). I even lamented about this indream. :razz:
I also visited a garden with massive vegetable plants that towered a few inches over my head, but I don’t think that’s what you meant in visiting a setting based on gigantic food.

I had 3 LDs last night, 2 short, 1 medium.

I moved a heavy car around with my bare hands, which I thought was worth points in the dream, but I don’t think it actually is. Then, I smashed the car (I think using telekinesis) horizontally and found Wyvern standing around on a sidewalk. I then levitated the smashed car, which was huge, and started to play around with it. Then, I tried to throw it using my telekinesis towards Wyvern, but I had issues actually letting go and it kept rocking back and forth, swinging over my head. I eventually let go of it, but it didn’t fly very far.

Also, I don’t know if tasks done in a ND count anymore, but I did visit KFC and Chick-Fil-A last night and ate some fried chicken as well.
