Task 1 – Juggling

LC 40 is now officially open! Welcome everyone to task 1. This week, we shall begin our adventure with a seemingly simple task. Yet, sometimes thing are not as simple as they appear to be. This week’s task looks to find you juggling in your dreams. Most people associate juggling with something like balls or perhaps something requiring more skill that you might find in a circus. This is a dream, though, and anything is possible! I can’t wait to see how everyone will decide to pursue this task smile . Without further ado, below is the breakdown of points for task 1.

1. Juggle (can be anything) – 50 pts
2. Juggle Something Impossible to Juggle in Real Life – 30 pts
3. Every Other Instance of Juggling – 5 pts/tick


Group incubation information is posted below this post. Everyone is eligible for creativity points, but whomever I like the most will get an extra bonus of creativity pts, just like it says in the rules.

Also, for this task, there are a couple extra things that can earn points. If you can manage to combine this task with your desired action, setting, or form, I will award 5 extra pts. You are eligible for the extra points once for each desired combination; namely action + task 1, setting + task 1, and form + task1. This means you can earn a total of 15 extra points this round, but each 5 pt bonus must be accomplished in a separate dream from the other 5 pt bonuses. These extra bonus pts are exclusive to this task, and may or may not appear in other tasks. If for some reason you believe that it is impossible to combine your desired action, setting, or form with task 1, then you may use someone else’s action, setting, or form, but you must make it clear in your post that this is what you're doing and also include that you believe it impossible to combine your action, setting, or form with task 1.

All that’s left to say is good luck and have fun! Make sure to read my post below on group incubation. If anyone has questions, please ask here or PM me :D.

Group Incubation


Similar to last time, I am going to allow people to pair up for this LC. These pairings must be chosen by the beginning of week 2. When you have confirmed with your partner that you want to work together, post here or PM me. Once I get the first confirmation, I will make a post that I will continue to update that shows the pairings.

You are not required to choose a LC partner, but if you want one, it must be before task 2. I’m also going to allow teams consisting of up to 4 people, although this may make it harder to gain the points that will come from tasks involving your LC partner/team than just pairing with one person. For those who want a partner or team and can’t find one, they will be able to use me to fill in the gap. For those who simply refuse to partner up, I will try to provide an alternative, but you may end up sacrificing pts that could be earned if no alternative is feasible. Those who have questions can PM me or post here, as always ^^ .

Group incubation will work slightly different this time around. You will work with your LC partner or team members to create a group incubation. You will have approximately 48 hours to decide on what you want it to be, meaning that it must be posted in this forum by 2:00 pm PST/ 5:00 pm EST (GMT - 8:00 ) assuming I post the task sometime on Sunday afternoon. If I am late in posting a task, it will be extended accordingly. Each task may be worth a different amount of pts for group incubation. With the exception of this week, group incubation pts will be placed in the main post. If the group incubation is sufficiently hard enough, I may tack on extra pts. This week’s group incubation is worth 30 pts, 15 for attempting it but failing at the juggling, with the other 15 added if you succeed in juggling. Depending on the complexity of each group’s incubation, this can be changed, but for now it is how the pts will break down for this task.

As no one has chosen a partner or team yet, I will allow posting of people’s group incubations until Thursday evening. If you refuse to have a partner or be part of a team, then you will not be eligible for group incubation points. If for some reason you can’t find someone, then I’ll be your partner. PM me and we will figure something out. However, this is only to happen if you simply can’t find anyone to pair with or any team to join. It should also be noted that group incubation pts will be worth half of their value once a new task is posted, which means that when task 2 is posted, task 1's group incubation pts will be 7.5 pts + 7.5 pts for a total of 15 pts. If this is confusing, please post here or PM me.

Gotta be honest, I don't see how you can group incubate juggling or how you could make it different from self incubation. Is it over what you juggle in particular?

I've talked to Wyvern and ian, and Wyvern's talked to Rhewin, and we're going to attempt to be a four-man team. We're tentatively going to juggle each other for the group incubation, as Wyvern likes to play with his food :D, but we haven't had the chance to say much with Rhewin, so that may not be finalized.

Sorry, James, but I talked to those guys before I realized that you signed up late. sadblauw Same thing to Scipio — I know your personal goal is based on something I tried with you in the past, but the thought didn't occur to me until it was too late.

Welcome james_uk2008 and KauaiDreamer!

I realized something may have not been clear in the task description. Parts 1, 2, & 3 must all be accomplished separately, although they can be in the same dream. For instance, if you juggle three bulldozers, it won't count for both part 1 and 2 at the same time. In a case like that, if you hadn't scored for part 1, I would initially count it for part 1 and if you juggled again, then I would move it to part 2. Basically, I will always award the most pts you are eligible for. I know I probably didn't explain that very well, so if you have questions, please ask.

@Rhewin
Well, it seems like your team was able to come up with a fun group incubation. For those who may be wondering, my suggestions would have been to think of something like having to juggle in a certain setting or environment, perhaps underwater. However, your team's tentative incubation is another great example in my opinion on how this can be incubated by a group.

@KauaiDreamer
I need you to provide a personal goal. It doesn't have to be anything special, but you still must have one. You can only have one desired action, so I'm going to remove the juggling one as it conflicts with the current task. For your desired form, I am going to need more information. It is acceptable assuming that you don't normally dream as yourself, but otherwise I need a different form, even if it is something as simple as you with a different hair color.

@Thorn
Alright, you, Wyvern, ian1, and Rhewin are the first confirmed team.

@Muccy
Awesome! This task should be right up your alley then.

And we're off! Juggling, eh? Looks interesting. Hopefully the compo can pull me out of the slump I've fallen into (recall and lucidity) the past week.

@ Thorn, don't worry about it. wink5

And good luck everyone!

Because of my competition, I'll be claiming all LD points this time around regardless if they include tasks.
So you should do the tasks, people. tounge2

2 LDs last night.

LD #2318 (short) I ran into a friend, Mohegan. He kept ranting about some kid whole was really annoying. He was ironically being annoying himself by ranting so long about it. We were walking down some field and headed towards a train station. Unfortunately he was so distracted with his rants - he'd stop every now and then to talk - that he missed his train. Mohegan then proceeded to blame the kid he was ranting about how he made him miss his train even though he wasn't there. Causing trouble in his absence too.
It felt like he just felt like being annoyed at something, but I felt rants irritating after a while. I told him I was headed to the Couch and then he started boasted how there was no way I could creep him out.
I said, "Yeah, probably not."
Not really caring, I shrunk him and stuck his head in my mouth like a lollypop, chewing on him for a while.


LD #2319 (medium) I traveled through a bit of a town and then to the field again. I messed around with some plant transformations. I transformed into a plant that had legs. It was more sunflower like. I then rooted my legs into the ground and caused my head to grow and arms to stretch. I turned into Audrey 2 quite quickly and successfully. I thought about scaring Rhewin... but figured I should use the form more creatively. I was then randomly shoved by a walking sunflower creature with teeth and no eyes that wanted to get my attention. I changed back and it just stared at me. Then it tried chasing me.
I threw things at it, shoved it, and then pushed it off a small cliff into a random pool of lava that was nearby, much like Minecraft. Killed it with fire.
I went to someplace called the Luvhouse. That's where I'd find The Couch. I went inside and sat on said Couch. It was big, red, and comfy (and self cleaning!). Rhewin was in the kitchen but Thorn and ian were nowhere to be found. Rhewin appeared to be so engaged with his laptop and he called me over to see. He then started going on about the legend of the killer sunflower. Oh.
He talked about the history, some experiment gone wrong, that there were more of them... the one I killed being 12 years old. The live until 100 or so. He said how that one was just a child.
"So you're not afraid of those things?" I asked.
"That's just a flower. Why would I be afraid of that?"
"Whatever man." tounge2
"Don't you dare turn into Audrey 2. That is not the same."
I kissed him but he seemed to want me to read more about the stupid flower. I browsed some website and there were all these profiles of important scientists and researchers involved with this thing. For whatever reason it also listed their religions. They got pretty strange and unique after a while, no longer being ones I recognized. Rhewin also showed me some webcomic pages that mentioned the sunflower. They were badly drawn.
I said I wanted to get something to eat. I went in the fridge and there was a ton of beer. Randomly on the counter there was a bowl of tomato sauce.
[something else happened here with some kid that I can't remember now]
I tasted some of the sauce and decided to make a pizza. I took out some ingredients and then went in the fridge. There was some beef broth thing. I added that in just for the hell of it and tasted the sauce. It tasted good so far. I went back to the counter with the bowl and added some spices.
I didn't have to complete my sauce because in the over was an already prepared pizza. I took the pizza out and tried a piece, the heat from the pan not being an issue in the dream. It was delicious and tasted like a great local pizza place nearby. Rhewin said something about it "Missing something... wink5" But I woke up.


No juggling yet, and I don't think I get any points for getting my form, location, and action there...
I'm kind of indifferent to those things because I don't know how to challenge myself in those areas. It was more for the sake of fun, I suppose.

Changing my desired form to Liquid.

I realized something was not clear in the instructions for this LC. Your desired action, setting, and form are like your personal goal. Once selected, they can't be changed; however, unlike your personal goal, when you complete your desired action, setting, or form, it stays as your desired action, setting, or form. It doesn't change throughout the competition, regardless of how many times you complete it. As this was not clear, I will allow people to change what their desired action, setting, and form is. You are stuck with your current ones until the end of task 1. You have until task 2 to submit a new desired action, setting, and/or form to replace your current one. Once task 2 is posted, all desired actions, settings, and forms will be finalized. I added the clarification in the rules in bold red text. As always, if you have any questions or objections, please post here or PM me smile .

@Wyvern
I'll be careful not to annoy you . Also, unless you say otherwise, I will change your desired form to liquid starting with the posting of task 2. Congratulations on posting the first LDs for LC 40!

Normal dream. Non-chalantly juggled a couple of pens while at work. Nothing else to speak of unless you count me yelling at a customer, which was amazingly satisfying since it thought it was RL XD

I had a short LD this morning that didn't manage any other points. I'm at a Christmas party right now, but I'll post the dream as soon as I can.

Everybody on our team has scored now while nobody else has. Go team!

EDIT: Dream posted.
