Lucidity Challenge 51 - Winner: Thorn!

Introduction

Hello, and welcome to the 51st Lucidity Challenge! I will be your host/task maker, Jer!
The Lucidity Challenge (or LC for short) is a challenge that is meant to push lucid dreamers to their limits, and to motivate them to have Lucid Dreams while competing against, and working with fellow dreamers. Have some fun, make some new friends and dream hard!

Structure

LC 51 will be a 5 week challenge. Although the scoring may seem complicated at first glance, the concept itself is simple - Each week, new tasks will be revealed. Your goal is to complete as many of these tasks as you can, in order to earn points. You can complete them in either normal or lucid dreams; however, lucid dreams will score you more points. The participant with the most points at the end of week 5 wins. The prize for winning is that you get the opportunity to host the new LC, (or to pass it on to the person in 2nd place if the winner chooses not to host)

I will also be keeping up the tradition of telling a “story” each week that is related to the Lucidity Challenge and it’s participants. You can read it for some extra entertainment; however, you don’t have to read it if you so choose.

Scoring (lengthy, and indepth)

Teams

The idea of group work started as a behind-the-scenes activity during LC 37, was introduced into the LC proper in LC 39, and was continually revised until teams were introduced in LC 42.I will be going back to the original format of having teams throughout the entire LC. There will be only two main teams to choose from, essentially dividing the LC participants half and half. I know some people think it can get stale being on one team for 5 weeks.. so I will try my best to throw in random elements to keep the game fun and alive! Each week, the team with the most amount of points will get to collectively choose one advantage task that only they can complete. This gives them a slight advantage over the other team. Team points are calculated by the collective points of the team divided by how many players there are. Alright, so lets get into the teams! There are two main ideologies to choose from. Please include which team you would like to be on in your sign ups!

Team Past
“Team Past” is all about tasks that focus on going back in time. Take a step back to witness history in the making. If you like the middle ages, dinosaurs or the Roman empire this team is for you!

Team Future
“Team Future” is all about tasks that focus on the future of humanity. Take a step into the future, and witness innovation at its finest! If you like Robots, technology and space exploration, this team is for you!


Characters

I decided to keep in the idea of having a character, in LC 51. The concept was first introduced in LC 50 by thorn. If you are this character while doing a given task, you gain an extra 5 points. The point of this exercise it to transcend any limitations your waking body had, and gain more control by having an entirely different body. You will need to provide the following:

Sign-Ups

As usual, we will need a total of 10 participants before we start. Obviously, more than 10 participants are welcome, but I am drawing the line at 20. If we hit 15, we will start asap. When signing up, please be sure to include your name, along with your personal goal. I do not need the average length of your Lucid Dreams, I will assume that you will use your best judgement when deciding whether it was a short,medium or long LD.

Please follow the typical format of :
1. “Insert Name” - Team - Personal Goal
For example:
1. Jer - Team Past - Fly into outer space

Here is a list of those who have signed up so far:
1. Thorn - Team Future - Cast a spell
2. Eliatan - Team Future - Looking for a good man
3. Yanshuf - Team future - Summoning the dream guide

Let's go.

1. Thorn - Team Future - Cast a spell

Yeah, that's an incredibly generic goal, but it surprises me how hard it is for me. I can handle willpower and I can handle lucid pills, but to actually cast a spell and get an effect eludes me. Considering I'm playing my character as a sorcerer in my Pathfinder campaign, I find that depressing! Plus, the team themes are about time periods, not fantasy worlds, so I don't think I'm stepping on toes here. I look forward to throwing magic around on Team Future for anachronistic amusement. smile

For my character, I'll just put down my Pathfinder character to further my ambitions.


What's an LC without a dragon? I play a 7' dragonkin sorcerer in Pathfinder with an inability to cope with a party of people that seem to have Chaotic Stupid alignemt, so I look forward to dreaming of him alone. I openly admit that my height as a dragon seems to vary in dreams because bigger dragons are cooler, but Jer can decide if not being spot on with height hurts my point claims. tounge2

What's this?! A wild Eilatan?? In back to back LCs?!

LC 51 Signups! [Name — Team — Personal Goal]
  1. Thorn — Team Future — Cast a spell
  2. Eilatan — Team Future — Looking for a good man.


Joining Team Future, because as Thorn said, they are about time periods and not fantasy worlds. Besides, I have had more dreams pertaining to technology than to dinosaurs and Romans. I am also hoping it will bring about more Doctor dreams. My character and goal are also the same ones I had last LC, but I will be clear that the goal is to find a specific DC, not just the Doctor. tounge2

Name: (Doesn't have one yet)
Species: Half-Elf
Gender: Male
Appearance: Humonoid except for the pointed ears. Emerald eyes. Shoulder length brown hair, either tied in a pony-tail or single plait. Usually bare foot or 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 180cms. (Fixed from last LC, because it was not tall enough)
Mindset: Looking to figure out what the Doctor has to do with his dreams. notify



Current LD goal(s): Meet my dream guide

Thorn : Glad to see you back in action! You're goal shouldn't interfere with tasks. Also, I understand the subjectivity of height in dreams, so I won't be too picky. As long as the changes aren't too drastic and your other characteristics still apply.

Elitan: Two Lucidity Challenges? Back to back? aww yes, you can never have enough LC's ^^ ! Looking forward to reading your DJ's

Yanshuf: Welcome to LC 51 ! It's okay if you don't have a character right away. As long as you have one designed before the start of Week 1 draait

wow! 3 members of team future! Hopefully the teams balance themselves up when more people sign up.

Ha!

4. Obfusc8 - Team Future - Talk to my clone.

Name: Obfuscate
Species: Anthropomorphic Martian biker-mouse
Gender: Male
Appearance: Tan coloured fur, mouse ears, tail, armored blue jeans, bike boots and black leather jacket.
Height: 6ft.
Mindset: I enjoy messing about on motorized vehicles, flying and transforming. I've been known to take many forms, including but not exclusively: Winged human, treant, insect, polar bear, incredible hulk, werewolf, colossal (fire-breathing tounge2) black dragon.

and my ride:
Name: Midnight
Species: ???
Gender: ???
Appearance: Most commonly a black sports bike but varies as much as it's owner. Occasionally takes the form of a black horse, giant dragon or a wide array of other motorcycles.
Height: Varies.
Mindset: Capable of independent movement and highly intelligent, Midnight is a reliable companion helping me to explore the dreamscape in style. siiw



I wish there was some kind of 'difficulty' mode for the veterans... The LC helps my motivation so much I need to take part but don't want to de-motivate others when I'm capable of many lucid dreams per week while others are new and might only get lucid a couple of times a month.

Anyway, I'm deliberately nerfing myself, on top of potentially being out of the country on holiday for a while, I'll only claim tasks done while lucid and only claim lucid dream points in which I complete a task.

obfusc8, you… actually made that reference. I don't have a reaction to it or anything; it was just expected a long time ago and never came, and now here it is. That said, what you mentioned is the difficulty mode for people who go above and beyond. Wyvern does it from time to time. My last checks with people about an actual difficulty mode basically came down to being told "don't be discriminatory, Thorn!"

Name: James (Ugh struggling with originality here)

James, when I play Pathfinder, I actually call my dragon character "Teehorn" (read: T. Horn) to tease the DM who said using "Thorn" was the same as using my real name. I am not original either!

Oh, my form and features still apply, heh. What's a dragon without occasional bigness, though? The changes do tend to get drastic. ^^ I had a character height requirement last LC not because I actually thought it'd interfere with tasks but because I didn't want people to earn Week 5 and Week 7 points just for being in character; I just had to lie a bit in the opening post to not give away upcoming tasks. smile obfusc8 also listed "colossal (fire-breathing tounge2) black dragon", so I guess it's not just me that tends to dominate the dreamscape!
I see what you did there, obfusc8! It's still on! Double giant > giant fire-breathing! This "feud" that'll probably just end in us getting giant beers isn't over yet!

let's say this - If you don't have a character designed before week 1, you will not be able to score any character points.. however you may score the regular task points.

@Scipio: The drawing looks like a person - are the cat ears hidden under the hat and the tail behind the body?
