must add the whole star wars thing in your dream does suit me and i really like the spell thing, you brought some cool ideas from that dream
Lucid dream, medium duration.
No tasks done. This dream was in almost complete darkness, a bit scary, a bit confusing, and I didn’t manage to achieve much. (The scene where the heroine walks down a dark passageway carrying a lighted firebrand is kind of a gothic horror classic, so there’s that, even if it doesn’t get me any points).
This is probably too late to get in before the end of the challenge. Oh well, never mind.
I didn’t quite manage 37 lucid dreams s … and you guys would probably have beaten me on points even if I had.
i need to get less points!
read on chaining, staying still as you wake up to flow back lucid into the dream? more or less. seems i used it for the first time without reading about it, then sea-dove started the whole discussion about the points so i checked.
i believe the - “Futuristic - Hunted” + “A follow up from the above? - a corrupt council” + “Desert world - Alien tribe” from the last entry in my Journal would be considered as chaining.
though since you label it as a technique and its the first time i used it (even though i just did it naturally without knowing about it…) wouldnt it count as some points for using a LD technique for the first time? ^^
I had a short LD this morning with no tasks, posted here. I would have done tasks if I had known that everybody is still posting dreams; I was under the impression that the LC was over.
I’m still under that impression, so I’m not claiming any points anymore.
Had an LD here this morning which at around 1-2 minutes long makes it a short one for me.
This was posted on Tuesday, so like Thorn and Letaali I’m assuming nothing after Tuesday 11.59pm counts and haven’t bothered posting. We’re just waiting until Rhewin has a chance to confirm the tasks/points earned before that, and an update of the scores.
using a FILD technique does require you not to move… so was i chaining was i not?
old Rhewin i leave this to you.
It’s been a week since the LC ended and twenty days since the last score update, so I’ve tried my hardest to sift through the topic to get speculative scores up until the time Rhewin said points could no longer be posted. These are not official; I am not Rhewin. They do show the score calculations to the best of my ability, though, and I’ve hosted four LCs before, so I know how scoring works. Hopefully this saves Rhewin some time and gives the competitors a rough idea of their placement.
The following things may make these scores slightly inaccurate or make them seem odd compared to how things were scored until the last update:
- sea-dove lost her 5 “regaining lucidity” points after stating they were all DEILDs on page 10.
- obfusc8 posted on page 11 saying something probably isn’t vampire-y enough for task points, so it was not counted.
- Awe’s most recent post about FILDs and chaining being unclear to him could remove some of his points. FILD was mentioned in quite a lot of his dreams, so this could affect a large number of points.
- sea-dove posted on page 12 saying she tried to eat something inedible but failed; I am unsure if the thing must actually be swallowed and thus didn’t add in these points. She also said she accused somebody of being a vampire but doesn’t mention actually revealing him/her as the task asks for. She further claimed 3 LDs but says the latter two (short) had no awakening, so I counted a long LD with a 5 point lucidity regain bonus instead of two short LDs.
- Awe wants Rhewin to decide on a dream fitting the “sneak into a building” task, which I did not mark in the scores.
- On page 13, Susan_Y claimed her personal goal in a non-lucid dream. Personal goals must be done while lucid, so I did not add points.
Hopefully this score prediction helps somebody out despite the inaccuracies. For example, I’m pretty sure obfusc8 can start planning LC 49 if he plans to host it. I hope to see the official results soon!
so, i had 8 dreams that night, didnt say anything about all of them being FILD, some were i mentioned who in my journal and also the lengths.
im not counting the monthly.
and i was not sure about the sneaking, i did write about it in my journal so its for Rhewin to decide if it fits since i didnt do it on purpose.
the other person did not have a lightsaber, just me.
^ Okay, I see. It was a post saying that you were going to post points in a future post. Got it. Any thoughts on if you got those “physical results” you said you needed for your second personal goal? It’s currently marked as if you got it. EDIT: Unmarked in accordance with the next post. How about if any LDs were chains, since you were unsure about that? If you didn’t move much and re-entered a lucid dream, then it gets counted as a chain that lengthens the previous LD instead of a new dream.
I updated the speculative score sheet and you’re still in second place even with those 240 mistaken points removed. Again, none of what I’m doing is official since i’m not the TM; it’s just to provide some feedback to people that have been waiting.
what? me posting points? huh?
my second personal task which was to cause physical change through a lucid dream was not accomplished if thats what you asked.
it was another dream, but i see what you mean. i didnt move much, but the FILD technique itself requires you not to move as you wake up in the middle of the night so you will stay sleepy enough to preform it. i see how that can contradict with Chaining thats why i leave it up to Rhewin.
its good that you went through it and ask the questions, it will cut some work for Rhewin when he comes around.
The task was it was supposed to be something “uneatable” and mine was . I couldn’t eat it no matter how hard I tried lol. Yeah I probably wont get the points as I couldn’t eat it.
"The task says "Co-op Task
Reveal someone else to be a vampire/wolf: accusation is the name of the game in wolfgame! Accuse someone of being a vampire or a wolf and then prove it! Proof could come from things like causing them to transform, making them confess, or doing it the WG/VG way (a hanging). However you can think of, really. Bonus pts for accusing someone else in the LC. 30/30pts. "
Im not sure how you’ve come to conclusion I didnt meet the task with
I guess I should of said fangs and not teeth. They were vampire teeth though so that was he revealed himself. He revealed it when he bared his teeth cause I’d accused him.
Im going through my lucid dreams as I’ve become aware I’ve been confusing in some of how I’ve tried to explain them and may of been taken wrongly. eg for one I said I wasn’t trying to WILD… which would of been confusing and I assume due to the way I put it I would of confused. I meant by that I wasn’t trying hard to WILD as I was tired, I wasn’t doing my normal methods… rather I tried to go to sleep while thinking I wanted to WILD (to of cause hopefully cause one) which then actually did cause me to have a WILD and go straight into a LD. Being focused on wanting to WILD as one goes into a sleep and then causing an LD immediately due to this is a WILD.
But yeah at least one of my LDs was a DEILD eg lady one and not a WILD. (any way Im going through them cause I think I explain things in ways which can confuse and may of been taken wrong).
(are DELIDs and WILD worth different points? I’ll have to check that up).
one lot of my 3 dream runs/chains whatever one wants to call them had no awakenings in between just drop outs while asleep … the other episode of 3 dreams close together were completely different to the other as I was completely being awake between the drop outs where I opened eyes, moved etc I like to get comfortable if I wake fully up.
So when it comes to points they should be under different catagories… one lot of LDs from complete wake state each time and the other lot from dropouts where I didn’t wake up between.
oh are new techniques worth more.
I’d best check that out as that was how I started to get my WILDS again, cause I went to using a new technique with it… using a tulpa… I started that after the first two weeks of this challenge not having a LD and then started having nightly LDs when I tried to WILD due to the tulpas aid… I then stopped using the tulpa and I stopped having LDs again. I’ve now gone back to using the tupla and are having them again.
it’s something I’d always wanted to try but cause I usually don’t have too much trouble with my WILDs I’d never needed to go and try it.
I know this website has a guide on this but they don’t call it tulpas or something else and its viewed as a different technique.
I’ve also tonight realised when going through all my LDs during this challenge, I realise one of them is missing (Im not sure if I had it immediately after this challenged stopped or just before, so need to go through my notes by my bed (a huge pile of paper stuff) and see if I can find it and when it was. I’ts a LD I didn’t do any tasks in but happened about I think a week back. I didn’t think much of it as I was only in it for a very short time before I dropped out so didn’t get to do anything.
During that one though, I was experiementing with a brand new technique I’ve come up with using noise and the loss of a certain noise to bring one into a lucid state and it actually worked. (I want to get a few different people to try this before I start telling people about it). I’ll post a guide here on it if it also works for others.
^ I’m sorry; I didn’t see the part where the vampire admitted it. I worked fairly quickly and was not trying to deny points to anybody. In any case, obfusc8 has won by hundreds of points and I don’t doubt that he’ll host, so that’s what really matters.
Thanks Thorn for doing the unenviable task of sorting out the scores. We’re seemingly stuck in limbo at the moment and while i don’t want to stomp on any toes I dont think people want to wait indefinitely for a conclusion to this. I’ve started preparations to host the next challenge.
So how do people feel about me posting sign ups at the weekend?
Sign ups this weekend sound good
Sign ups this weekend sound good to me
This week end sounds perfect!
