Hi! Welcome to the 55th Lucidity Challenge.
I , DTDownUnder, will be your host. This is my first time hosting so I might not be a perfect, and I’m not going to try to be. I will do my best.
The Lucidity Challenge (LC for short) is a game that is intended to provide some additional motivation for people who are trying to have lucid dreams. Each week there will be new challenge tasks posted in this forum thread, and you score points for having a dream (lucid or non-lucid) in which you do one or more challenge tasks. Lucid dreams score more points: the details of the scoring system are described later in this post.
At the end, the person with the highest score is given the option of hosting the next challenge; if they don’t want to do it, the option to host passes on the second place scorer, and so on. Apart from that, there are no prizes; the goal is to have fun, both doing the challenge tasks and by having other lucid dreams using the skills you’ve learned from attempting the challenges.
If you feel uncomfortable about any of the tasks (e.g. you find it frightening, or embarrassing), feel free to skip it. There’s no pressure to do all the tasks, and no prizes apart from the getting to write the next one.
Participants in the LC usually post a description of their dreams in the Dream Journal forum, and post in this thread a short post describing which task they think they’ve completed, hyperlinking to the full description of the dream in their dream journal. If you don’t want to post all your dreams, feel free to leave some of them out. It’s also OK to leave out parts of dreams, and just post the bit where you did the task, leaving out the more embarrassing elements.

Lucid Dreams and Induction Methods
You wonder if you are dreaming but do not become lucid - 5 points
A “short” lucid dream - 20 points
A “medium” length lucid dream - 30 points
A “long” lucid dream - 40 points
Your longest ever lucid dream - 50 points
Your first ever lucid dream - 75 points
Completing one or more of a week’s tasks in the same dream as a task from a different week - 20 points
Completing the LD4all Monthly Quest while lucid - 75 points
Personal goal while lucid - 100 points
Personal goal in a non-lucid dream - 20 points
Dream lengths are subjective estimates (you can’t measure how long the dream really was, at least not without using an EEG machine or similar) and “short” is relative to how long your lucid dreams usually last. If you haven’t had a lucid dream before, use short <= 1 minute < medium <= 5 minutes < long.
If you achieve your personal goal twice, lucid and non-lucid, you only get the 100 points for the lucid.
As usual, we will need a total of 10 participants before we start. To sign up, post a message in this thread, copying the current list of sign ups and adding your own name at the end. Please use this format:
e.g. 1. DTDownUnder - Jump off a Cliff
Your sign-up can include a personal goal you want to achieve while lucid.
PLEASE ALSO INCLUDE a picture or description of how you would like other LC participants to see you in their dreams (we will (probably) have a “summon another LC participant” task). This doesn’t have to be how you look in waking life, though something human or at least humanoid would make life easier for other participants.
One Last thing

Sign-ups start today, but the LC will not begin for a few weeks. I have decided that it is better to have a longer sign-up period than to be absent during the LC. I will be 99% offgrid from the 3rd of July until the 25thh of July.(my emergency sat phone is the 1%) I will then be back in range and can start the LC.
