Bonus Points: (Awarded at the end of each task)
Up to 30 points for quality of recall
For every normal dream recalled, you are awarded 10 points. A lucid dream will award you 15 points. You will be given 5 points for each fragment you recall.
Please put a link to your dream journal when you sign up. If you do not have a dream journal on LD4all, start one—it is a great habit. If you wish, you may create a temporary DJ in the Dream Journal forum for this challenge.
Only dreams that you have during the course of the challenge are eligible for points. If you join the challenge after the beginning of the first task, only dreams that you have after the time you join will count. It may be a good idea to make a comment in your DJ of where your first ND Challenge dream begins.
If you wake up from a dream, but immediately go back to sleep and see either the same dream or a different one, you will be granted 5 points. Points for chaining are cumulative, meaning you can get several points for chaining if you wake up, go to sleep, see a dream, wake up again and go to sleep, see another dream, and so on and so forth. The additional dreams will be counted separately from the first, and you will be awarded points on recall accordingly.
Every reality check you perform in a dream will net you 2 points, even if it does not get you lucid. Reality checks performed while lucid will not award points.
There will be five tasks, which will last seven days each. Completing the current task will get you 50 points. If you complete a previous task, you will get 25 points. You can complete multiple late tasks per dream.
You may also choose a personal goal, which will award 25 points upon completion. Please state your personal goal when you sign up. Once you have completed your goal, you may choose a new one.
Please note: As this challenge focuses on incubation, completing the task after becoming lucid will only award 20 points, your personal task will award 10 points, and a late task will award 10 points. This is not to penalize you for being lucid, but because the ND Challenge is about dream incubation, not lucidity.
If you feel you have completed a task or your personal goal, please state which task you have completed and when you completed it.
At the end of each task, I may give up to 30 bonus points to each participant, based on how well you recall your dreams, and the level of detail in your dream journal entries. This is meant to reward those who improve the quality of their dream recall, in addition to the number of dreams recalled.
