Welcome to LC #34! I, elnaureth, will be your host this round. I hope this challenge will be fun and exciting for everyone, and will help you all bring your skills to the next level!


The LC is a method that has been carried out in order to motivate participants in their quests for lucidity and provide them with short-term goals that will hopefully be interesting and enjoyable. It is an opportunity for lucid dreamers to improve their dream-skills and creativity, while also competing with other dreamers for the chance to host the next LC.

The following are the rules.


LD Points

You get these just for having an LD! You do not have to complete a task to get these, so post any and every lucid experience!

Points awarded for each dream:
- You wonder if you're dreaming. + 5pts
- You become lucid but wake up shortly after or lose lucidity very quickly (generally 30 seconds or less for most dreamers). + 10pts
- Short LD: You have whatever you would consider to be short according to typical LD's you've had in the past. + 20pts
- Medium/Average LD: You have what you would consider a medium length LD. This should be the average length of most of your dreams up to this point. + 30pts
- Long LD: You have what you would consider a long LD. + 40pts

Everybody is to provide an average length on signup (unless you have never had an LD before), and point calculating will be done accordingly.

For those who have never had a lucid dream before, there will be no short LD option. Dreams over 30 seconds and less than 5 minutes will be considered medium length, and dreams over 5 minutes will be considered long LDs.

A dream is considered a single one until you get out of bed and/or write down your dreams.

If you have your first lucid dream while the Challenge is running you will get +75 points!

If you become lucid through a technique you never succeeded with before, I will also award +50 bonus points to you. If you're about to try a new technique, or are simply new to lucid dreaming and want to find out which technique suits you best, this is your chance. However, these extra points are not awarded for your first ever lucid dream. (Please be clear about this when you report your dream, because I don't want an extra entry in the signup form for each technique succeeded with so far.)

As you can see, this scoring system is very subjective. This is because different people have different average lengths for lucid dreams. What one person may consider short (5 minutes) may be someone else's medium, and so on. This is so people can work on improving their own personal bests. It encourages the more advanced LD'ers to work hard too. To help you get a definite idea of what your usual duration is, you must post your average (or medium) LD time when you sign up.

Chaining and regaining lucidity: Every time you chain or get back your lucidity from having lost it, you are awarded 5 points. However, the new LD is counted as a continuation of the previous one; so, for example, you can have a medium LD, then chain and raise the LD score to that of a long one.


Task Points

These are the points you are awarded for attempting, and completing, the various tasks. You do not have to be lucid to complete a task, but you will earn the most points while lucid. Each task will have different ways of rewarding points, and they will be explained as each task is posted.

You will earn points for completing the tasks as they are set, but you might earn more points if you do it in your personal style or as part of achieving one of your own goals. I can also award bonus points for outstanding creativity or spectacular solutions, but no more than 10 points per night and person.

Any task can be attempted any number of times; however, the scores are not cumulative among the same task. Only the best score is awarded for each one. (Example: You earn 50 points on first attempt but only 20 on the second. You will only earn points from the first.)

For each task, the following bonuses can be awarded:
+30 lucid points (for any task accomplished while lucid; this is separate from LD points)
+20 early points (for completing the last task active when you go to sleep)
+10 creativity points (for using creative solutions in your LDs)



Base idea for awarding points in each task:
Generally, points for each task will be assigned as follows:

1. Completing the basic task. (30-50 pts)
2. Completing secondary tasks. (10-50 pts)
3. Points earned per action or variation. (5-20 pts per tick)


Quest Points

The monthly Quest counts as a task, and awards 50 points for completion.


Personal Goal/Task

When you sign up, also give your personal task(s). That is, a task that is one of your goals for LD'ing. I will award up to 120 points in total per person for completing your tasks.

If you submit one personal goal, you will earn 120 points for completing it. This cannot be repeated. If you submit several goals, you will get 120 points divided by the number of tasks you submit for each one that you complete. For example, if you have five goals, completing one will award you 24 points.

Be careful, personal goals and average LD lengths cannot be changed while the challenge runs.


Deadlines and Calculation

New tasks will be posted Tuesday 8:00 PM EDT, or Wednesday at midnight GMT. I will accept entries as late as exactly one day after the next task is posted for early points. The reason for this is the variation in time zones between LD4all members.

If you have any questions about deadlines, please PM me.

You have two options for the point calculation process:
You either write whole dreams here or post a link to your online DJ.
Or you can just specify which basic task and secondary tasks and repetitions you completed, and your points will be calculated accordingly. However, by doing this, you will lose your chance of getting creativity bonus points.

Don't worry about the point calculations, I will be calculating all the scores. (It is required, given the possibility of bonus points.)

If you feel I made an error in points, please PM me immediately and I will either explain or correct. We are here to have fun, so if you and I disagree on how many points you have earned, please do not make a scene. If you don't like how I award points, then win the LC so you can make up your own rules!

As per tradition, the Challenge will be open to up to 20 participants with a minimum of 10. When the minimum amount is reached, the first task will be posted on the soonest Tuesday.

This challenge will last for six weeks, one task per week.

I'll allow signups after the first task is posted, but not if this means we reach more than 20 participants.

A couple of people from the #ld4all chat wish to join this, but something has gone wrong with their forum registration. Could you wait with closing it until those two have their accounts in order?

Signups won't be closed until the number of participants reaches 20, so I think they're probably safe.

ok hopefully i can do this one, the last two LC's i ve gotten a LD the night i sign up for it- ending my dry streak

#25:  Author: Ysim PostPosted: Wed 14 Mar, 2012

Off to a quick start. Just woke from a nap, with a short LD. I was John Carter, on Mars. Once I became lucid, I got into a huge fight with the locals and ultimately killed the Therns and wound up celebrating in an alien bar.

Great. You had to choose a topic that for some reason has always made me a little queazy. cry I don't know why but in most of my floating-into-space dreams, my greatest fear is leaving the atmosphere and gravitational pull of earth and drifting in space forever. Of course in those dreams I don't think i've ever been fully lucid. Well, here's to overcoming my weakness! alien

medium ld for me, not related to task.

An ND where I met The Doctor (Time Lord, not human) while on the TARDIS. Not sure if we were flying trough space, though. Might have been, never left the ship so I cant tell.

i ended up having a ND about fighting Andross from StarFox 64, and i visited Pandora but it was not an LD....
But hey, im getting somewhere! i normally get a lucid dream once a month but im trying!! ^^

Scratch the previous ND (sorry Doctor). Last night was on a federation starship which flew from earth (was already on board) to another, forest planet. The inhabitants were quite tall. Some were reptilian, a few other more human in appearance. Interesting dream, its a shame I didn't become lucid as well.

I had a short LD this morning, but didn't leave the planet.

#33:  Author: ZRVera PostPosted: Thu 15 Mar, 2012
    ----
I was lucid for 5-6 minutes. I tried to fly just by flying at first, and that barely worked. I then remembered my thought to use minecraft blocks. I didn't end up with any, but still tried walking on air like walking on steps (which I've done before). I thought I was getting somewhere, then realized I was only about head height of the people around me in the air. The sky was light gray and cloudy, and I tried to continue my upward journey, but ran into my usual ceiling. I broke through the first, and ran into more ceilings. I tried imagining a new dreamscape in the darkness above one of the ceilings and tried to see stars appearing, but I probably either woke up or went into an FA.

Edit: Here's the link to my DJ post.

i had a medium length LD this morning which was followed by a FA so i forgot most of it sadblauw i may have been lucid for more than 3 minutes though i do remember that, i know i said that 3 minutes would be considered long, well 5 minutes would be long but i haven't gotten to that point yet idk. anyways i completed my personal goal of talking to a DC and asking them what part of my subconcious they are.

i don't remember how i became lucid, i was in a building with lots of rooms and offices. (a common thing in my dreams, but not in real life) i have been wanting to become lucid there as i see similar places to that often in my dreams and they look interesting, but i dont remember what i did then, half of the LD was forgotten, i only remember going down a hallway and somehow ending up in my own house (i didn't control this)

it was night, i only remembered two of my goals (only one would count for points because i forgot to submit the other) the goal i forgot to submit i have in my signature, i briefly thought about trying it and i was right near the bathroom where the mirror was i planned to use, but it was too dark and i was afraid of running out of time so i decided to do the other one. the light was on in the kitchen and i heard the clanking of pots and pans so i knew my mom would be in there, and since she would be a DC i decided to ask her. i went into the kitchen and started talking to her, i forgot most of what i asked, but i do know i was lucid. i wasn't as lucid as i had hoped though, i could have been more lucid but i didn't think about raising my awareness. she kept disappearing while i talked to her though, and i would turn around and she would be coming out of the laundry room so i went into the laundry room. it was back and forth for a while, she would disappear and i would go to the laundry room and she would be coming back into the kitchen. i remember asking her what part of my subconscious she represented, i forgot what she said though. i only remember one phrase she said which i wont tell because it is kinda personal. there was a lot of negative feelings (no surprise, we don't get along well lately IRL) i really wish i remembered if she told me what part of my subconcious she was, i think if i figured out what she represents in my dreams, i could figure somethings out in real life.

also right after talking to her, i began to rub my hands in hopes of that keeping me lucid, it only worked a little as i felt myself waking up. i didn't actually wake up though, i had a FA. im not sure but i think in this false awakening i even posted here about my dream! i dont remember anything else about the dream except i woke up and thought "what a cool LD i just had" and i was STILL dreaming --__--

so i completed this goal, but i am thinking of redoing it. i forgot most of the lucid dream and i wasn't as lucid as i wished, i would like to redo this and become more lucid, and hopefully not run into anything....negative.

but i will now set a secondary goal if thats ok, i read on another site how weird mirrors in dreams can be, what if i went through one? so my next goal is: go through a mirror.

i forgot about the Task i will try to remember, but remembering two goals is actually a lot. maybe i will try to do a WILD (for the first time) and complete the Task, now that would be awesome. also i remember being lucid for much longer than in the above post but i forgot it all except i vaguely remember the feeling of being lucid, i don't know what i did though.

I attempted to leave Earth again, and was rising away from Earth in space briefly before finding myself on a spaceship. I met two types of aliens. The lucid part was probably 4-5 minutes before the dream ended.

DreamSailor, personal tasks can't be added or changed after the challenge begins. (You can of course set other goals for yourself, but they won't give personal task points.)

Do you want this to count for the personal task points? It looks like you did complete it from what you said, but I can withhold the points until you get a more satisfactory answer if you'd like. smile

Ysim: That was quick! Let's see... |20 points| for your short LD, and |30 points for visiting Mars + 20 points for meeting aliens + 30 task while lucid + 20 early points = 100 task points|.

Rhewin: |30 points| for your medium LD, and |30 points for flying in space + 30 points for visiting another planet + 20 points for meeting aliens + 20 early points = 100 task points|.

skyglide: |30 points for visiting another planet + 20 points for meeting aliens + 20 early points = 70 points|. Keep trying and I'm sure you'll get a LD!

Siiw: |20 points| for your short LD.

ZRVera: Congratulations on making it into space! |30 points for a medium LD + 20 points for a short LD = 50 LD points|, and |10 points for leaving Earth + 30 points for flying in space + 20 points for meeting aliens + 30 task while lucid + 20 early points = 110 task points|.

DreamSailor: Nice LD! |30 points| for your medium LD, and |120 points| for completing your personal task.

___________________________________



PS: Today, after 3 weeks, I've had my FIRST LD!!!! I've tried MILD, DILD and WILD, but I became lucid with DILD.
I was at school, in the computers room. Then a friend of mine entered by the door and gave us our assessment marks. The paper wasn't like others we got before. It was colourful. I was surprised! I remember I got a 3/10 in Spanish (I've never had failed before- I live in Spain ¬¬) so I decided to talk to my teacher. I said her that calculating my average mark I should get a 6.4 and then the text transformed into that mark! wow Then, I noticed I was dreaming. lucid

Everything became more vivid and clear, and I decided to say her I should have had 10/10. The text transformed again. I was happy. But suddenly, the scene started to fade out. I started to think about what happened and I came back to my dream. It occurred a few times and I finally gave up. neutral I think I was reentering the dream or something like that...

It was amazing! I though I wouldn't have so much control! I felt it to last 2 or 3 minutes long, but I don't know how long it was... whatsthat How can I know my dream's length?

However, it was the most amazing dream I ever had (although it wasn't very exciting). siiw

Yay! Your singing magically worked! My dry spell ended. I did a DEILD/WILD this morning and had a short LD. I remembered the task and tried to fly up to space..but from reading Vera's attempt, I found a ceiling in my way. meh It was painted like the sky and I slammed into it lolol. Spent a bit of the dream trying to will it to go away, but then lost lucidity. The dream continued with me turning into some mysterious dude trying to break through the ceiling. I'll post this in my DJ later ^^

@elnaureth

oh ok sorry about that i wasn't sure, i am thinking maybe i should just get the points for it now, i can always interview DCs anytime, but i think i will now try to concentrate on the Task which is to visit outer space since i forgot and it has a time limit, so if manage to interview any other characters it won't count for task points but thats ok.

i can't change it, but once i complete one personal task, i can't add another? i completed this one and i decided not to redo it for points, but can i add another task since the original one is finished or do i just do the weekly task (which is ok i don't mind) and will have no more personal tasks for points at least?

also if i can set another personal task after completing one, how long do i have to complete personal tasks? i know the deadline for the weekly one is a week, but does the personal tasks have a limit?

#42:  Author: elnaureth PostPosted: Sat 17 Mar, 2012
    ----
DreamSailor, no, there's 120 personal task points per person per challenge.

The Rules wrote:
If you submit one personal goal, you will earn 120 points for completing it. This cannot be repeated. If you submit several goals, you will get 120 points divided by the number of tasks you submit for each one that you complete. For example, if you have five goals, completing one will award you 24 points.

Be careful, personal goals and average LD lengths cannot be changed while the challenge runs.


You can complete the weekly tasks after the week is over, but you won't get early points for them.

ok i had a short LD not successful though but i tried. here is my DJ post

DreamSailing's Dream Journal


i did attempt to leave earth, i should get some points, but i would like to do this over. i did read the rules, i think that if i attempt it again and succeed i will get those points (just not early points because im sure by the time i have another LD it will be the next task) but what if i don't have an LD or attempt it again before the next task? will i still get the points i got now for attempting?

als @elnaureth ok i get it now, its ok i will just do the LC tasks, the less tasks i have to remember the more likely i am to remember it. i won't redo it, i will just concentrate on the LC tasks. also its good that i can still get points for the tasks after the week is up, i don't mind not getting early points. i am just hoping this challenge will help me become better at LDing which so far it has helped quite a lot smile

well i will kinda redo it, actually i plan to continue trying to interview DCs, but i will do that when i am better at LDing.

Today I tried many WBTB-like and DEILD-like WILD's and had a LD. Probably I was in a dreams for much longer, just didn't realized and kept trying to WILD in there. But finally, probably after many WILD's inside the WILD's, for like 5 secs I was aware of being in a dream and did nothing task related.

#48:  Author: Ysim PostPosted: Sat 17 Mar, 2012

Just a lucid moment last night. Maybe about 20 seconds or so before I lost it.

Had a short moment of lucidity, about a minute. Really low-lucid one though.

#50:  Author: elnaureth PostPosted: Sun 18 Mar, 2012

Zzz, sorry, I didn't read your post carefully enough. "Have a LD" is not really a good personal goal for the challenge, since, well, the challenge already rewards that. You should pick a goal that's something that you want to do while lucid (like flying, exploring, or whatever).

#51:  Author: elnaureth PostPosted: Sun 18 Mar, 2012
    ----
Ysim: |20 points for a short LD + 10 points for a lucid moment = 30 points|.

StarryGwee: |40 LD points| for two short LDs, and |10 points for trying to leave Earth + 20 early points + 30 task while lucid = 60 task points|. I'm sure you can get a better score for this task if you want to, though!

GnarGnar: I'll count that as a lucid moment, so |10 points| to you.

DreamSailor: |20 points| for a short LD, and |10 points for trying to leave Earth + 20 early points + 30 task while lucid = 60 task points|. You can try the task again, and if you get a better score the next time, your score for this task will be replaced with the better score.

demented: |10 points| for a lucid moment. Keep trying and I'm sure you'll get a longer LD!

averaging about 1 LD per month and a half---- probably due to not writing down dreams meh

#53:  Author: DreamSailor PostPosted: Sun 18 Mar, 2012
    ----
for some reason attempting many WILDs apparently messes with my sleeping patterns as i find it hard to just go to sleep normally, and yet i had another LD this morning! this is the second morning in a row i had a LD, i had one three days ago too, if i can get to where i can have LDs almost every morning i am off to a pretty good start smile

however this time i was even further than last time in completing the goal, so i guess i will get no points. i remembered in this LD that i had to stabilize the dream, but i feel that stabilizing and prolonging my LDs should be something i work on the most now because my LDs are still very short, this one was about 30 seconds maybe a minute. i went outside, i tried to make that vehicle appear, the only thing that did appear was a pair of wings that were hovering across the street, but i didn't even notice them at first and when i did i felt i needed to stabilize the dream more. i tried rubbing my hands but i kept thinking about my sleeping body ( if you tell me not to think something the more i try not to the more my mind HAS to --__--) oh well, i didn't complete the task, but i learned i do need a good amount more skills than i first thought, first i must find a way to prolong a LD if i am to get anywhere. i haven't tried spinning yet, maybe that will work (and end me up in space hopefully tounge2 )

Still nothing on my end yet. It may take longer to bring my DR back to it's former level. The closest I had to ANY type of awareness last night was running through a hallway, seeing everything as a sort of blur, and thinking that I need to start paying more attention to my surroundings or my dreams will copy the way I see (or rather, don't see) things in WL.

Finally my first LD this month! woo
It was a DILD...i was kinda giving up on trying to LD so i figured that i could become Lucid if i stopped trying to for once.
At first it was not related to the task though it must've lasted a good 5 minutes. Then when i remembered my goal, i walked to a Launch Star like from Super Mario Galaxy and left the planet that way.
Unfortunately, that part of my lucidity didnt last long. Probably like 30 seconds or less. I did pass by two planets but i lost lucidity after that and ended up having a ND about star trek... shy2

Last month I got to space on accident by flying too fast unintentionally leaving earth . It kinda freaked me out. I went back to earth after afew failed attempts and tries flying fast again, but this time emphasizing my form staying parallel to the clouds to get to my desired destination. Unfortunately the same results,vision blurring, getting caught in an odd up draft, and ending up far in space looking down on the solar system or looking up at the solar system.

Just when I gave up trying to have a LD, I had one last night. I even started singing in it, musical style, before I remembered about the new task. It was probably about a 5 minute dream. In the middle of the dream I started chasing a DC down the street asking for more information about the problems the city is facing--in song form of course. It came out naturally, like a musical number.

In the middle of the song I remembered the task. I started counting the people we passed on the street hoping I could add them as "people who listened to my song." I counted 4 before I had to focus on catching up to the original person I was singing to. I don't remember the lyrics or the tune but it we completely made up, on the spot.

I just had the weirdest dream last night, I don't think it counts but it was so strange....

Last night I was waking up all throughout the night for lots of diffrent reasons, one of them was my my dog. So I decided to go take him out of my room so I got up walked him to the door and took him outside. I get back in bed and I hear my dog drinking out of the toilet >.< but it was from the bathroom that is in my room. So I guess I did a WILD in like 10 seconds just to take my dog out of my room hehe.

Need to post all my DJ posts... oops. Been keeping it at least.

Lucid moment last night, thinking "I should remember this is a dream for the sake of the story, since I know I won't ever reach the tallest roof." I lost that moment VERY quickly, and indeed never reached the tallest roof.

Later on, I was in a red room (so shoulda caught that, but it was an awesome dream anyway), and one of the gods was telling me (dream was centered around gods/goddesses, at least for most of it until the end) to play this piece. I played a violin piece (supposedly one I already know, if it was, I don't remember which one), and there were people watching, as it was a choreography with a dog.

The dog danced with me into various rooms and around some chairs/sections. It went great the first time, but I decided we should do it again just for practice. We ended up stopping halfway through going around the chairs and stuff in the last big room though. We ended up going to the beach then, so that part ended. o.O All of the music/dog/dance part was non-lucid, not related to the lucid moment in any way except for being later in the same dream.

Yey! I had a random short lucid this morning. I was looking out a window at night and noticed 2 moons, that's what triggered it tounge2 I forgot about the task though, I just flew through the window and around the sky, gazing at the stars happily. I don't remember anything after that.

Will post more in the morning, but I just woke from an epic of itself. ^^ A long WILD (roughly 2 hour) in which in which I traveled a lot through space, mostly in 4th dimensional wormholes, but also in the tardis after i met the doctor. grin I ran into a dalek and another alien enemy of his. While on the tardis, I first sang a song to it (which the doctor, rhewin, and some companion got to hear), then used its controls to synthesize a neat little techno song. There was also one other part I was singing to myself.

After that, I woke into SP and projected, which I will skip for now. I woke from it and found myself in a FA. I became lucid but didn't have any time to do anything and woke up from real.

*sigh* if keeping a DJ was part of a class i'd be failing at the moment.

i forgot to post but a few days ago i had a short 20 or 30 second LD, i didn't do anything but i finally figured out what RC works for me, its holding my nose to see if i can breathe. a lot of the other RCs are unreliable for me, looking at my hands does nothing and i cant seem to push my finger through my palm in dream, so holding my nose works best.

also this morning i went into SP and actually for the first time i didn't freak out and wake myself up lol. but unfortunately once the vibrations stopped i thought i could move but when i did i found i was awake anyways --__-- fail

i know, i don't expect to actually win, or get very far in this challenge, but i am just hoping it helps keep me on track, i am serious about getting better at Lucid dreaming, its just there has been a lot of distracting things going on lately making it hard to remember to do RCs.

btw i am kinda confused about the point system, you have my name and one of those lines (^^ out from it and another further from that, but there aren't any numbers...i dont get it, how does this work? how can i tell how much points i have and how many points others have so far?

DreamSailor: just highlight the "blank" portions with your cursor to reveal the points you got. They are otherwise hidden.

Oh, and nothing new to report on my end. I'd still like to try going to space even though we are done with the first task. It's that or the most recent LQ: find your true form.

A suprising lucid moment this morning. About, 2 mins.

In the dream my dad was unable to find something, so then I noticed it was a common dream issue and told him he was probably dreaming.. Then I realized the stupidity of that comment, & realized I was dreaming. Had some fun chasing bad guys and using powers. Only to find out my dad was the real enemy. :o

had a short LD about 20 seconds. i lost lucidity quickly though and didn't do anything quest or task related.

how am i in the lead? wow unless i am reading this wrong (or dreaming) it says i have 250 points while others have 130 or 150 points, i guess it was that personal task that did it lol, next time i will make sure to choose something harder though, but i didn't fully understand the rules then, now i do.

anyways in the LD i had, there was this bad guy who wanted to take over the dream world with his powers. he made everything turned gray and freeze as if freezing time, i began to freeze in place too and i wasn't lucid enough to know i could have changed this --__-- i had a FA after that in which it was on the news that the dream world had been taken over so no one could have anymore dreams when they sleep.

now my question is and was in the dream, why would you want to rule over a completely empty world? eh?

Rhewin: |10 points for a lucid moment + 20 points for a short LD = 30 points|.

GnarGnar: How long was your DJ dream? For now I'll assume it was medium. |20 points for a short LD + 10 chain points + 30 points for a medium LD + 20 points for a short LD = 80 LD points|. Also, did you make up your own song when you were rapping, and did you perform for anyone? I'll add those points if so, but for now, |30 points for making music + 30 task while lucid + 20 early points = 80 task points|.

Thorn: |30 points| for a medium LD.

Zzz: |30 points for a medium LD + 50 points for succeeding with a new technique = 80 points|.

Siiw: |40 points for a long LD + 40 points for another long LD + 5 chain points = 85 points|.

demented: |60 points for two medium LDs|, and |30 points for singing + 20 points for performing for DCs + 5 points for singing trololo + 30 task while lucid + 20 early points = 105 task points|.

skyglide: |30 points for playing an instrument + 20 points for performing for DCs + 20 early points = 70 task points|.

EyesWide: That's a really cool dream! |30 points for a medium LD|, and |30 points for singing + 20 points for performing for DCs + 20 points for making up a song + 30 task while lucid + 20 early points = 120 task points|. I'll also award |10 bonus points| for the creativity of a musical-style dream.

ZRVera: |10 points for a lucid moment|. If I'm reading this right, in the second dream you played a duet with your mother for a group of DCs, so |30 points for playing an instrument + 20 points for playing with a DC + 20 points for playing for DCs + 20 points for playing a made-up piece + 5 points for playing a second piece + 20 early points = 115 task points|.

StarryGwee: |40 points for two short LDs|.

Limitles: |20 points for a short LD|.

Ysim: |10 points for a lucid moment + 40 points for a long LD + 5 chain points = 55 LD points|.

Task 3: Explore Underwater!

Swimming in LDs can be amazing! Not only can you breathe underwater, but you can find all kinds of interesting places under the sea. Maybe you'll find a shipwreck, a sunken city, or a town full of merpeople. The only limit is your imagination!

Scoring

+30 Go underwater
+20 Meet some realistic sea creatures (e.g. fish, whales)
+20 Meet some fantastic sea creatures (e.g. merpeople, sea serpents)
+30 Explore an underwater location
+10 for each place you explore after the first

Short LD the other day in a nap. RCed to realize I was dreaming, but didn't even THINK of the LC because I was worried that a disembodied voice I'd heard in the dream had actually come from WL. I tried waking myself up and finally succeeded after two more (lucid) FAs. I'd say two-three minutes.

I had two considerably long to medium LDs in a row this morning!

ok i am pretty bad at measuring dream time, but it seemed like they lasted either 3 or 4 minutes, which is currently considered long to me. here is my DJ post

Aw, I didn't participate, but yesterday I read the title of this topic, and this morning I had an underwater related dream! Almost a LD as well. Here's how it went:

I was doing some LAN game with my brother, but it was in real life. We were both on a different boat and not really playing "the game" seriously.

Later we both fell into water and that's when we quickly tried to get on some land.

-Jump-

Later in the dream I was in my house, and the whole house was underwater (Without me finding it odd). So I swam to my room and tried to open my window quickly so I could get some air, and I wanted to go through quickly and close the window as well because I didn't want any fish to come into my room. lach1
I was now outside of my room but still underwater, and I was thinking like "Hey, I still don't have breathing problems... Actually, I can feel myself inhaling through my nose.... Ohh that must be my real life body! I don't actually need to get air in the dream ^^ "

^ I'd call that a FLD overspannen

Thanks to some certain one's distracting me in chat, some memories were lost. But they were spotty anyway...
I had 2 minutes LD. I consider I did part of first task - reached the open space (that for me is most difficult of all the given tasks so far). Even if it was just feeling of it, that probably lasted less than second.

Now I can focus on other tasks.

well last night was the closest ive ever gotten to completing the 3rd task...
I was an Assasin on a quest to find something when i fell from a bridge or a boat. Then i saw a huge whale come out of the water and land on me.... overspannen

I also dreampt that i was at school, where i met an old friend of mine from a swim team that i used to be in. Then i started to swim-fly. I wondered to myself why i had never done this before when I saw a book that was written by the LD4ALL community... i asked myself, "what if i'm really just dreaming?" I realized i was dreaming and i woke up..
So i was never lucid but hey, i guess i sorta made up my own dream check!

About 4 min LD this morning. I don't really remember how I got lucid though.. o_O, I just remember flipping a penny that read 1cent which turned too 2cents a lot, I kept checking, cause I didn't believe I was dreaming. Eventually I was sure and flew out of my house to the street. I remembered about the LC- flying to space. So I took off flapping my arms up to the sky, and a few times remembered to stabilize the dream by rubbing my hands together. It felt kind of long..but I finally saw black, I was in space. So once in space I remembered to visit some planet and meet some aliens. I looked around and spotted a weird looking planet, which was in the shape of a skull. I flew towards it, an orangey-black looking planet. I looked around but couldn't find any living lifeforms. That's all I could remember tounge2.

#109:  Author: ZRVera PostPosted: Mon 02 Apr, 2012
    ----
Short LD a few days ago and a five-minute LD last night where I remembered the task and dove in two pools. There were some people there, and when I first dove in the first one, I swam as deep as I could for a few seconds before I ended up getting lifted out of the pool. I felt too buoyant to stay in. I tried again at the second one, and made myself breathe underwater this time, as I'd held my breath before. Then I went looking for a lake or ocean or something, though it was nighttime. I do recall seeing it as I flew, but I don't remember if I actually made it to/in it.

Edit: Haven't been keeping my DJ the last several days. Have not been sleeping as I should lately, and I just woke up from 19 1/2 hours. I should start keeping it again tomorrow after work. I'm just lucky I did something task-related while lucid before it ended. meh

ZRVera: |40 points for two short LDs + 30 points for a medium LD = 70 LD points|, and |30 points for going underwater + 30 task while lucid + 20 early points = 80 task points|.

GnarGnar: I added |20 points| for making up your own song.

DreamSailor: If I read that right, you were lucid, had a FA, and regained lucidity, so that counts as one long LD with lucidity lost and regained. |40 points for a long LD + 5 regaining lucidity = 45 LD points|. Nice job!

demented: |30 points for a medium LD + 10 points for a lucid moment = 40 LD points|. You also beat your earlier score on task 1; your new score is |10 points for leaving Earth + 30 points for flying in space + 30 task while lucid = 70 points|. (Also, I seem to have made an error and left some of your points from last week out of my spreadsheet, so I'll rectify that.)

Siiw: |20 points for a short LD|, and |30 points for playing music + 20 points for playing with DCs + 20 points for playing an original piece = 70 points for task 2|. Did you perform for an audience in that dream?

Thorn: |40 points for a long LD + 20 points for a short LD = 60 points|.

Zzz: |30 points for your medium LD|. When you flew, did you fly among the clouds (your personal task)?

skyglide: |10 points for the lucid moment|. Did you actually go underwater in your ship dream?

Limitles: |30 points for your medium LD|.

The challenge is now half over! You've all been doing a great job, and I want to congratulate you all - especially the newer LDers - for what you've accomplished in the first half of this LC.

I also want to remind you all of your personal tasks and April's monthly quest. Only one person has completed their personal task so far, and it's worth a lot of points, so it's worthwhile to make that a priority.

Now on to...

Task 4: Epic Battle Scene!

Do you ever like to imagine that you're fighting in an epic battle like in your favorite book, movie, or video game? Your task this week is to choose your enemy and then fight them in a battle worthy of the dream history books!

Scoring

+10 if you decide who you want to fight before you go to sleep
+30 Fight your enemy
+20 if the battle lasts longer than a minute
+20 Use a fighting technique that is impossible in real life
+20 Win the battle
+5 for each additional category of impossible techniques you use (e.g. magic spells, summoning a weapon, supernatural martial arts moves)

Oooh! This looks fun! I do a lot of fighting in my dreams sometimes. Too bad Sunday's wouldn't count... ah well. That was an awesome one. XD

Let's see... since I haven't been keeping my DJ still... I had an FLD probably.. Tuesday night? I randomly remembered some guy sort of taunting me, and I grabbed his arm. He went "What are you gonna do?" and I flipped him over onto his back. I then proceeded to step on his throat.. at which point he gave up. It probably only lasted a minute though.

Didn't know of the task at that point.

Also, I seem to be ahead so far... I need to start paying attention again, now that I've calmed down from my bad weekend. This morning's DR was crap though, I don't remember anything now, even if I did earlier. meh

I could also use this chance to incorporate this task with my personal task as well.. Use the power in my battle.

a short lucid moment. I realized I was dreaming as a DO, then I realized..wait, why am I controlling a random DC.. So then from realizing that, the scene switched to me in bed, and I raised out of it and flew off. But can't remember what I did after that. hah. tounge2

I punched Rhewin in the face in a ND during a nap yesterday evening. Then this morning I had a short LD (about 2 mins), just enough time to jump out the window of class, find him, and punch him in the face (again), before waking up.

Does slowly whittling him down one dream at a time count as "epic battle"?

Task 5: Manipulate the Elements!

(The idea for this was shamelessly stolen from the ND challenge.)

A master magician has all four elements - water, air, earth, and fire - at their command. Show that you're the master of magic in your dreams by manipulating the four elements in ways that the world has never seen!

Scoring

+25 Manipulate water (e.g. create waves, shoot water out of your hand)
+25 Manipulate air (e.g. create wind, make a vacuum)
+25 Manipulate earth (e.g. make a hill appear, tunnel through dirt)
+25 Manipulate fire (e.g. shoot a fireball, make fire into shapes)
+20 Bring all four elements together and see what results

Technically, the slicing and absorbing both were part of the light powers. I was just describing how I used them. I'm not sure I should get additional points for those unless you're counting different types within a power set, which I sorta doubt.

Some normal dream with "make music" task, where i performed with DC for an audience in tv studio, as well as the rest of the world(probably) watching. smile Actually DC was the performer, I just jumped on the stage and tagged along tounge2. I can't remember the piece performed, but it was unique, so it should count as "made up my own piece" too.
Oh, and I supposed there were at least 5 pieces performed, but I am not sure if I participated, so I take it as single one.

dunno if all this sums up to more points than my previous attempt for this task.

ok it has been forever since i posted here and haven't had any luck in completing any of the tasks so far. i really want to but sometimes i get distracted and dont have any LDs for a week or so, or i may have some but forget to post them here.

here is the basics, i had 4 LDs here are the times

4-7-12 short lucid moment, 15-20 seconds
4-11-12 long or medium LD of 3-4 minutes (visited the ocean, didnt go in)
4-13-12 medium LD 1-2 minutes
4-14-12 medium LD 2-3 minutes?

if anyone wants to know what happened you can read my DJ here:
http://ld4all.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=673644#673644

its very long because i haven't been updating in a while and had 4 LDs to write. also i asked for advice on something and wanted to see if it happens to anyone else. its about hitting a ceiling when flying into the sky, it happens in every LD that i try to fly i wonder what it means or how to get past it?

the current LC task its controlling elements? this couldn't have come at a better time as i just got through with the first season of Avatar the last Airbender! tounge2 and i am addicted to that show now lol. but of course i gotta be lucid first but i will definitely try this one, but i think i should deal with this sky barrier problem first, for some reason i just wont be content until i get past this obstacle, but if i remember maybe i will blast that barrier with some fire or earth bending tounge2 or maybe i could use the wind to help me fly through it (that worked once before, maybe i should try it again?)

or i could just imagine its not there at all? idk what i should do about it.

I had two NDs involving the first and the 4th task. In the first one I was on some kind of mission with a few others on a planet with a rainforest and floating rocks (Avatar). I don’t know what exactly was going on, but there was a lot of hectic, rush and panic, so I suppose it was a war. I’ve seen a lot of aliens of human size with big, elongate heads. During the second one I killed four men, I think they were monks, each of them accompanied by two little apes. Two of them were killed by a punch on the head after I jumped up in the air, the two others died after I stabbed them with a knife in the back/stomach. Huh. Sounds more violent than it was.

I had a LD 4-5 min where I WILD inside a dream into another dream LOOL. WILD-ception. Anyways, me and two other ld4allers IWL, created this checkpoint/meet up area, at the center of a city where a giant mirror/portal with numbers 1-100 will be. The numbers signify our dreamscapes.

Soos, basically I WILDed in the dream and got into the dreamscape by the HI I saw. Once in the dream, I quickly remembered about the mirror and flew out of this building I was in to the city. The mirror wasn't hard to find, it was really close nearby, I almost passed it. It laid ontop of a hill as I imagined, looking all whimsically awesomes. My goal was to look for demented with the mirror. On the right side of the mirror's edge I looked for a keypad of some sort, but only found this spinny thing.. with numbers 1-100. I spin it to number "87", and pressed the giant enter button. -here it gets fuzzy- I just remember dragging demented to the mirror through this dark room, and he seemed quite scared of me haha. I believe I woke after this..
Bad recall, since I went back to sleep after that.

ive had two music related NDs a few days ago where me and a friend of mine were trying to compose a song on the piano, and then another one where my friend grabs my guitar and starts playing "lamento boliviano" by "los enanitos verdes" in front of my teacher and friends....
It woke me up and then i couldnt go back to sleep because i had the song stuck in my head... angry

ok, got a bit accomplished here. First off, Friday night I had 1 long and 2 short LD's. The long one was a few different dreams chained together, so lost and regained lucidity twice.

In one of the dreams I was trying to play with energy but ended up bending reality around my hands. It looked and reacted a bit like air bending.

Also, in an ND I was exploring underwater in a submarine but didn't see any civilizations or even animals.

A medium LD and another one which I would define as a lucid moment since I don't remember anything else of it besides the moment I went lucid.

Oh crap, I've not been paying attention to anything at all... Hopefully my blackout curtains get here soon! Perhaps then I'll sleep/dream/LD better. ^_^

i had a dream last night in which i was lucid and i actually remembered a LC task for once, i remembered the one to control an element. i went to a sink in the basement and found it was full so i with much effort managed to manipulate some water a bit, nothing fancy just making it "grow" in a strand coming out of the sink.

so im a water bender now smile

*sigh* the challenge is almost over and there is no way with what little skill i have that i could pull off a party, especially one like the one in the task since i dont know many people here and dont know what they look like, i will go over the previous tasks and pick one...and hope i can do it before this challenge is over. if it ends oh well there is always the next challenge right? there will be another right? i hope so, i haven't done so good, but i am learning to be better at LDing now and because of the tasks i have learned many more possibilities that can be achieved in dreams. i will most certainly participate in the next LC, hopefully i will do better next time smile

im just happy i got one LC task done smile hopefully next time i can do more and with early points too smile

oh but i did have 6 LDs since my last post i just haven't been posting them. i haven't submitted DJ entries on my latest ones yet, i did post one of them though, i plan on posting the others tomorrow, but tonight its late. i didn't do any of the LC tasks in the others but i got better at my LD skills at least.

here are the LDs dates and lengths
4-17-12 short Lucid moment
4-17-12 medium LD (had two in one morning, the short one and the long one)
4-18-12 medium lenth to short LD
4-21-12 medium lenth LD
4-22-12 very short lucid moment. i managed to make a small orb of light appear
4-25-12 medium to long LD and i controlled water completing a LC task.

you can read my LD from April 17th here:
http://ld4all.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=673644

oh by the way this isn't a part of a task but, i finally managed to make food have a taste in my LDs! i had a donut it was delicious smile i tasted something in a LD for the first time.

DILD, 1min. I suppose I reached the bottom of some "underwater". However, for starters I was swimming down in air, and when I reached ground\bottom I didn't had any senses that could indicate me either being in air or water. Gut tells me it was "water-thing", therefore, underwater part done.

#147:  Author: Leijona PostPosted: Sat 28 Apr, 2012

One long LD.

A medium LD, but i just went with the plot, because it was awesome tounge2

#149:  Author: Leijona PostPosted: Sun 29 Apr, 2012

Had a ND about the underwater task, in this one I was a mermaid myself. The sea/pond was surrounded by massive stone walls so I dived into the water until I reached the ground. The ground was at first very boring, only sand with a few stone bricks from the wall or the buildings. I swam around a bit and came across some coral reefs and fishes which were all pretty big, but didn’t look extraordinary. Later I meet other mermaids and we had captured an important guy of a royal family and planned on getting ransom for him. In the meantime I remembered that I saw an underwater cemetery with lots of graves and, most importantly, lots of golden burial objects which were all small enough to carry around. So I dived again, found the graves and stole every little golden thing I came across. In the very end though we were discovered and had to flee.

i had two LDs one very short LD and one low lucidity LD which was finally task related despite the fact i hadn't incubate this. here is the link

http://ld4all.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=674773#674773

basically i went underwater, i swam with Orcas, there was this other strange creature there too, i describe it in the post. it was very low lucidity though so i actually didn't even know about the LC task --__--

i had a very short LD earlier before the underwater one. i forgot what happened cause i didnt write it down immediately and instead went back to sleep.

well second LC task done smile

Had super awesome ND that turned into super awesome LD that turned into lucid challenge dream :D

Had a medium length LD.
Chained into a medium LD :

I'm sitting in my bed in the middle of a WILD and then poof, I remember to do the lucid challenge so I vibrate my way into the dream and then find elnaureth the eating chips and gwee wobbling around (she was a pengiun). I talk about... programming (elnaureth brought it up tounge1), something involving space needles and lasers and then I go talk to gwee but she was a pengiun so we just make random noises. Then I start flying around hehe

Long LD last night.

I was on my way to a party, but became lucid when I realized I was picking Rhewin up. After that we got a limo and road in style with CarpeSomnium, Wyvern, Marvin, Ansie, Eilatan, Siiw and FiXato. We went to an LD4all ball (because it was too fancy to be called a party wink5 ), met Q, moogle, GreenDragon, and drow there, as well as plenty of other members I don't quite recall. There was no shortage of good food, music, and dancing. ^^

Short, low uncertain lucidity moments in weird, barely formed, unstable dream.

#155:  Author: StarryGwee PostPosted: Tue 01 May, 2012

Shocking lucid moment, about 1-2 min I guess. I could only remember becoming very lucid, then everything faded, and I had this falling feeling, into the abyss. There I tried to make a dream form, imagining I was swimming in the ocean as a mermaid, which worked. Then I don't remember the rest .. sadblauw I kind of remember a long fun adventure, but it's just on the tip of my brain. Grr..

Sorry for my lack of presence recently - I've been busy. I'll close the challenge on Saturday, so you have a few more days left to attempt any tasks you haven't completed.

#157:  Author: Thorn PostPosted: Fri 04 May, 2012

Another medium LD this morning, where I had only the vaguest memory of the task I wanted to do and thus didn't do it correctly.

#158:  Author: Siiw PostPosted: Sat 05 May, 2012

no LD, but i had a dream last night about a camping/hiking trip with many LD4all members. Will post after work.

Medium LD involving the 5th task. I created five little fireballs on my fingertips and threw them on the wet ground. There was a thunder storm going on like the apocalypse was about to happen, and I wantched my little flames being eliminated by the water almost immediately (the lightening which reached the ground a few times was breathtaking btw ^^ ) and I caused a little earthquake by jumping.

I had a ND last night. I played the harp!
It was out of tune but I managed to play this song on it!

Sorry for not getting around to scoring this. The computer where I have the spreadsheet stopped working, and I haven't had time to fix it. Hopefully it will be fixed tonight.

Short LD this morning, ruined by a false awakening in which I jumped up and slammed the window shut to stop rain from coming through and wetting my laptop. If only I'd remembered that I sleep with the curtains closed. tounge2

Was at a party with friends, but Wyvern was there with us as well. He and I talked quite a bit throughout the night. IIRC, we were stuck watching a really boring movie another friend wanted to watch.

Also, short LD last night, nothing task related.

#167:  Author: Leijona PostPosted: Sun 13 May, 2012

The neatest thing happened last night...
I had a ND where i was teaching my brother how to play the Skyrim Theme Song on my keyboard. I woke up earlier than usual, so i got up and played the notes that I remembered i played in my dream. It wasn't exactly right, but it was surprisingly close for a dream! :D

#171:  Author: Rhewin PostPosted: Sat 02 Jun, 2012

Two medium and one long LD over the last few days...


Is this still going orrr...?

#172:  Author: demented PostPosted: Sat 02 Jun, 2012

I had a short LD a few nights ago while on vacation.

EDIT: I just had another short LD, but didn't want to double post, so, um... yeah. Two short LDs in this post.
