Lucidity Challenge 50—obfusc8 wins!

How mean. :tongue:

I’d like to change my character. I’ll think about it some more and update the description (and the pictures, if I manage to create them).

Transformation is really, really difficult for me. Even a simple one, like changing what I wear. I had the most luck with a changing my hairstyle, but that’s probably because I change it often irl.

So… here’s some surprise success for the first night of the LC! Not as much as Letaali, but still. :razz: I’m grouping any kind of “wondering if I were dreaming” under the category “Lucid Moments” even though they’re not actually lucid. If they were to continue under that level of thinking they would have led to lucidity and so the name I give them is as such. :razz:

A Suburban Scene ~ Short Lucid Dream
Laundry Burrito ~ Non-Lucid Dream ~ Lucid Moment

Stats so far:

[spoiler]NLDs: 1
Short LDs: 1
Medium LDs: 0
Long LDs: 0
Lucid Moments: 1

Task 1: ~ none ~

Meaner than you dreaming me up to be the evilest dragon around that attacked you and made you kill your family? Meaner than shrinking me and putting me in a pillowcase prison? I HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN! :razz:

I’ve updated the scores with Scipio’s dreams.

I thought I was forgiven. :crying: Your memory is great, though, I completely forgot about the pillowcase. :wiske:

Anyways, I updated my application post with a new character. Now that she’s wearing battle armor, she’s looking forward to host-related tasks. :grin:


Today, this entry.
A medium lucid (about 10 minutes long), and a tiny lucid FA. Low lucidity, no tasks.

Non-lucid dream in which I’m in a battle scene in a modern city. It had something of the look of 1950’s sci-fi comic about it. (Also apocalyptic anime like Akira or Neon Genesis Evangelion … and in parts a bit like the Israeli war documentary Waltz with Bashir).

Does this count for the “Wander round a city” subtask? (Even though people were shooting at the time).

I bet Thorn totally wants to see Anna from Frozen replacing Asuka as a mecha pilot in Neon Genesis Evangelion, but I wasn’t Anna in this dream.

Thorn wrote: “Fatten up from your food”.

I’m wondering if this task is one of the ones deliberately picked to be difficult to do as Anna… a Disney-style corset could a bit uncomfortable after eating too much :smile:

I had a short LD the other night. no tasks completed.

@Susan_Y: You tell me if it counts as wandering through a city. From what I saw in your DJ, you didn’t so much “wander” as leave one building and run across the street. Was there actual movement through the city for the sake of moving around the city?

Congrats to everybody who scored points last night. The scores are updated.

@Thorn. Well, there was movement from one building to another. Ok, it’s not enough to count for that subtask.

In every dream last night I was either riding my motorbike or driving a car, so that’s the drive a motor vehicle task done. :content:

I don’t know what this is. Medium LD? There was nothing important, though, just a bunch of feelings. :grrr:

Short lucid dream during a nap. I was in a city, started hearing music and wanted to run. I noticed that running didn’t feel normal. I became lucid and kept running. I heard a woman laughing behind me. She had long blond hair and was running too. Dream faded.

So…wandering in a city now done lucid?

obfusc8, I expected as much out of you.

En’enra, I’m sorry you had an unpleasant night. Try to look at the bright side, though. That “heavy” feeling you had? Try to apply it to a certain subtask for Week 1. :wink:

Letaali, yep, you’ve got the lucid bonus now.

The scores are updated. I’d like to point out that Letaali is leading the first leg with only one lucid dream by virtue of the tasks and bonuses he’s acquired. Focusing on the tasks is important!

CHALLENGER APPROACHES! (That may have been used already, but chat was talking about Smash Bros so oh well.)

Name: (Doesn’t have one yet)

Gender: Male
Appearance: Humonoid except for the pointed ears. Emerald eyes. Shoulder length brown hair, most often tied in a pony-tail. Usually wearing boots, an elbow-length, leather glove on left hand and wielding a collapsible metal staff. Has a tattoo on right inner bicep.
Height: Roughly 170cms. (Because I want to be tall :cry: )
Mindset: Tall, dark and quiet type. Just 'cause :woah:

Had a normal dream where I briefly explored a city. It was big enough to have a parking garage with several levels, so I’m pretty sure it counts.

Short LD last night, no tasks. (I misread/misremembered the task and thought working out was enough, but it clearly states in a gym. Bah! :meh: )

Non-lucid dream in which I am almost lucid – I could partly remember the tasks. I wasn’t lucid enough for me to count it as a lucid dream. I wasn’t transformed as Anna (I could remember an appearance transformation was required, but couldn’t remember what). I visited a library, and read a book which had something about a competition (the LC, I think…) and an illustration of Thorn in a pilot’s suit.

I think this counts for “Find a library and read a book”.

Mew, truly, the sign of a bustling metropolis is a large parking garage. :tongue:

obfusc8, yeah, most things are location-based for now. Location-based tasks are often people’s least favorite ones, so I’m getting them out of the way early. I see that you made it to a beach… you’re going to want to kill me when you finish reading this post.

Susan, I didn’t know I was famous enough to be in a book. I’m not arguing it, though. :smile:

The scores are updated, and it’s now time for some more story nonsense and a decision for all LC participants to make.

Pre-Week 2 Decision

[spoiler]You get a call on your cellphone as you wander around Elcedia. You answer the call and hear Thorn’s voice. “Hey, not to interrupt your fun, but I figured we’d explore the dreamscape around Elcedia once you’re comfortable in that new body of yours. It just became summer in reality for me, which means it just became winter on the other half of the globe… I’m thinking we can either go somewhere summer-like or winter-like. What do you think?”

You weren’t aware that Thorn had your cellphone number. You weren’t aware you even brought a cellphone into a dream world. You find yourself slightly confused.[/spoiler]
Next week will be a team week! Let me know in this topic if you’d prefer some fun in the sun or some cool snow. If you don’t post your decision before the Week 2 tasks are posted, I will assign you randomly.

Oh, snow! My goal is to use water magic, though. :cry: But I met that awesome almost-dream-guide in a snowy ld! :cry:


I choose summer fun.

I choose TEAM SUN! Or whatever it will be named :tongue:
