Lucidity Challenge 43: Winner - drd!

I tamed a turtle in a dream, it wasn’t lucid though. Work has piled up on me, and i’ll hopefully be able to type up full dreams tonight, but can’t promise anything.

In a ND last night I composed a cover and mash-up of two songs that sounded different enough for me to consider it “original music”.

Had a medium ld last night, chained with a DEILD. I tried to build another robot and failed. I guess building robots is not my thing :,(. Also the DCs did anything I told them to do, and I tried to talk to my SC but failed. It seems my recall picked up a bit last night

Task 4 - Super Mystery Fun Task!

[center]Welcome, everyone, to the Super Mystery Fun Task!

Rhawin is pleased with your choice[/center]

The Transformation Team has won advantage and has picked to infli- I mean give the SUPER MYSTERY FUN PRIZE to themselves! Yay! Little did they know, they changed the entire Task! Basically, I shoved all of my ideas into a little box. Now three possible tasks have been dispersed among the teams. Oh… about the teams.


Forget those boring old teams! For this task only, the SUPER MYSTERY FUN PRIZE has changed your teams into something a little different.

Say hello to the new teams:

Super: what’s the point of having dream powers if you don’t use them? Go out there and be super!
Mystery: there’s a whole dream world of DCs. Who knows what secrets lurk in the shadows?

In addition to new teams and random tasks, members of the Fun Team can do any one (1) opposing team task without penalty.

Also, the two non-advantage teams must complete team-voted Tasks while wearing party hats :happy:

The Tasks

Open the SUPER MYSTERY FUN PRIZE in a dream 20pts
Wear a party hat 20pts

Become a super hero 30pts: I mean costumes and a defined set of powers!
Rescue (or distress) a citizen 40pts: hero of villain? Time to show your true colors. Also, does not have to be in your super hero form, but what’s the point of doing it otherwise?

Narrate your dream noir style 30pts:
just like the old detective movies of the 1930s.
Offer to solve a crime 40pts: you don’t have to actually solve it, but you know there’s potential for bonus points if you do!

Transform into an inanimate object 30pts: you’ve got some choices here. No moving!
Give yourself (and use) extra limbs 40pts: man-spider time!

[color=red]Due to technical difficulties the Team Tasks will be posted within the next 10 minutes[/color]

EDIT: Rhewin said Wyvern was too late, so meh, disregard. Yay victory!

@Wyvern: that was posted exactly at midnight. Missed the deadline, I’m afraid.

My apologies for the wait. The forum is crawling. I could barely edit the previous post.

Task 4 Team Tasks

Super: no hero is complete without a villain. Create your own super villain (or hero if you’re the villain). Figure out their name and powers and then confront them. You’re gonna need back up on this one!

Mystery: in addition to solving a mystery for a DC, you can create your own mystery to solve. Decide on the type of case it is (theft, murder, etc.) and give the case a classy name like in those old Noir shows. Don’t forget your side kick!

Fun: you know what? There haven’t been enough dragons in this LC. Pick a specific type of dragon (western, eastern, skeletal, etc.) to become, and a second type of dragon for your team mate to become. Do I hear combining points with a previous task? Why yes I do.

[color=blue][size=200]FUN TEAM ADVANTAGE

You know what? Come up with whatever randomness you want. You can pick anything that relates to any of the above three teams (Super, Mystery, Fun), or the previous teams (Creation, Investigation, Transformation). The only exception is you must include the following word for inspiration: COWBOY

Thorn: to address your concern, I truncate and/or round when posting. The pure equation is done without rounding, just one equation after another the calculator. I did appear to make an error, however the final corrected participation rate leaves the Transformation team in the lead at 13.9% (13.8% truncated).

Edit: I also will not delay an entire LC Task because someone posted right at deadline. Even 11:59 is a stretch, but the post in question was posted as I hit the submit button.

Long LD last night

Some task related stuff -

“Turn a DC into an animal” - the DC changed, but he didn’t shrink to a proper size, so don’t know if it counts.

SPOILER - Click to view

There is a man dressed in a duck outfit and I decide to RC by attempting to turn him into a duck. It works! He turns yellow and fluffy like a duckling, arms turning into wings, orange beak protruding from his face. :hehe: He stays the same size though, like an enormous mutant duckling.

“Meet with the creator of your favourite music” - well it was more him chatting with me, I kind of disregarded him as I’d forgotten about tasks at the time. Lost the dream before I could get him to sing his favourite song though. :cry:

SPOILER - Click to view

At the door there is a bouncer. It’s ginger haired Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age. I’ve forgotten the lucid challenge and the tasks entirely, so my focus is on getting outside to go flying. He lets me pass but he follows me, asking questions, trying to convince me to sit down and have a beer with him. He asks me what the rush is and I explain that this is a dream. We get outside. He is skeptical, asking me why I think I’m dreaming, so I start to sky swim backwards, floating up into the air. He continues following me, also swimming up into the air, asking me to wait.

I point out to him that he’s flying too.
“Oh. Cool. Do you fly often?”
“As often as I can, yeah.”
After flying for about a minute, I remember the LC tasks and turn to Josh Homme, asking him to sing his favourite song, but my vision clouds over and I think I lose the dream.

Not sure how this one would count because of the FAs, but posting it anyway. It was either a long LD, or lots of short ones, with lots of RCs. I tried to do a task but failed.

Also, this new task sounds exciting ♪

Okay, so I had a short LD last night.

In the LD, I was able to grow Wolverine’s claws, albeit tinier versions. In a ND earlier in the night, I was Wolverine, but I never used my claws; I just got into a fight with some crazy dude who said I didn’t need armor because of my abilities and that’s why he decided to try to beat me up.

So how all that counts, I’m not sure. Claws seem like extra limbs to me, but maybe not? Also, I did become a superhero because I was Wolverine. And then, being Wolverine counts towards my personal goal. I’m not sure how this tallies up.

I had a medium-length lucid dream last night:


Still knocked out by work and a heat wave, but tomorrow if off if everything goes well and I’ll type up then.

Last night, I used a flower knife to enter IRC messages with…on a cola bottle. I think that counts as using technology in an unintended way? It wasn’t lucid, I just vaguely recognised this form of chat as something I had done before. Also, in the same dream, Soothsayer used a radio as a speech-to-text device.

In the first ND here, I stood on a beach facing the water and fought against a giant squid. They are not native to my area, so I’m claiming the “find an exotic animal in its habitat” points.

I tried to solve a crime in a ND this morning. I also narrated it but I’m not sure if that counts.

Had a short lucid moment yesterday, interrupted by my alarm turning on -_- Dreamt about being stalked in the ND. In the dream I thought I would get LC points because I was a victim. I discussed this on IRC in the dream… mixed up victim/villain. I noticed I felt very disorientated and after a few strange events I realized I was dreaming and jumped out of an open window still half conscious. Questioned myself again to make sure it wasn’t another FLD and flew above a beautiful area only to be awoken by my alarm shortly after. :sad:

Medium LD this morning. I had remembered the task wrong, and thought it was about superpowers. So I flew, and tore a hole in physical reality with my bare hands, but didn’t even think of a superhero or villain. :cool_raz:

I got lucid for a very brief period of time today, actually several times but the other times I got lucid after falling asleep in the previous dreams, believing that reality was the real life. (I could be wrong however, my recall isn’t the best, I do remember one of the LDs were extremely vivid, but it could have been a FLD, however I was totally aware of that I was laying in my bed sleeping)

Oh yeah, in one of the NDs I also used a computer to browse facebook!

Edit: In the LD posted earlier (page 12), I managed to fly several times, forgot to mention that!

I had a normal dream last night were I was in a MMORPG. I don’t know if it counts as entering the Internet, but I was the actual avatar in the game, as if I was living inside of the game. I wasn’t playing him from RL.
