Introduction

You thought you were rid of me? Hah! Rhewin the Great and Powerful has returned to host yet another Lucidity Challenge (LC)***.

I'll just start by saying that I believe the LC is one of the most helpful tools for any aspiring lucid dreamer. If this is your first LC, you can expect to work for the challenges, but the reward is a lot bigger than just points. This is a chance to stretch your legs and really see what you can do in a dream.

In the spirit of competition, I'll be trying to balance the scoring as much as possible. As you can see below, I've kept the team system introduced in LC 42, but with a few twists. The teams will have equal points every week this time around, though due to the nature of some tasks, the difficulty may vary.

One relatively major change: this LC will consist of five (5) tasks rather than seven. A while back, tasks were only 3 days long. During this time, the LC only ran a few weeks. Extending the task time was a good idea, but the LC simply runs a long, long time. Participation tends to dry out near the end, so I hope to counter this with a shorter LC.

***OK, so I didn't win LC 42, but apparently first and second place were rather busy. I still had third place. Bronze is still good, right? Guys?

Teams (new!.. but not quite as new as last time!)

The idea of group work started as a behind-the-scenes activity during LC 37, was introduced into the LC proper in LC 39, was revised again for LCs 40, 41, and finally culminated in LC 42. The teams give you a chance to personalize your LC experience.

This is a new LC, so it's time for three new teams! Read each description and pick the one that interests you!


  • The Creation team is all about making something new. Does this mean you'll have to constantly summon up new DCs or items? Not at all. You could create a work of art, or design a new building that defies logic. Maybe you'll make a new form of life, or perhaps you'll pave a new way to visit the astral plane. If you don't see what you want, you make it.
  • The Investigation team is about learning what makes the dream tick. Sure, you might travel to new areas and explore new dreamscapes, but there's more. Why is that DC smacking a penguin on a piano? Where did they grow up? Do they know you're dreaming? How that rock suddenly turn into a jellyfish? You want to know why things happen in your dreams.
  • The Transformation team is all about change. Don't like the color of that DC's shirt? Change it. Wish it was sunny instead of raining? Change it. Want to be a giant, fire-breathing octopus with lazer tentacles? Change yourself. Rather than have to create something new, you'd rather change the world (or yourself) to fit your imagination.
You can choose your team based on your skills, based on what you want to improve, based on what you've never tried, based on the stated difficulty level, or whatever metric you desire; you get to decide your LC experience! Remember that you will get full credit for your team's subtasks and for generic subtasks but will only get half credit for subtasks belonging to other teams, and remember that you can't change your team later, although I may make exceptions to this if participants start disappearing and teams become weighed down by inactive members.

Each team will have its own special sub-task that I create. You're also allowed to create your own sub-task in addition to mine. The teams are responsible for choosing their sub-tasks within 48 hours after I post the main task. You can communicate however you wish, but if you miss the deadline your entire team will forfeit those points. Remember, you can always PM me if you don't see me online.

REVISION


After talking to some participants, I realized that the team advantage did help people with their incubations. I will go ahead and reinstate that. In this case, the reward will be an extra sub-task worth 40 pts. Here's the catch: this must be a team-incubated sub-task. That means that you have to agree on it with your team members and do the task with a team member.

The advantage is based on which team has the highest participation rate for the current task. Participation is based on the number of sub-tasks completed by individual members divided by the number of members on the team. That includes team incubations!

People have won and lost over less that 40 points in the past, so make sure you motivate your team members to focus on the current task.


Sign-Ups

This LC will start after we have at least 10 participants.

When signing up, please quote the sign-up list from the most recent post containing it and add your entry to the bottom of the list. Your sign up should include your username your desired team, and your personal goal worth 100 points when completed. After the list, you should (but are not required to) say a bit about your motivations for lucid dreaming and your dream desires; if you want Team Dreams to fit your desires and motivations, then you need to be clear about what those are!

I do not require you to tell me the time your average LD takes. Just tell me if it is short, medium, or long.

Here are our current sign-ups:

When it comes to my luck with LC tasks, making things typically isn't a problem. I've even seen success with going places and talking to DCs. However, my control over the dream has been waning when it comes to changing things or changing myself, so I want to get that back even if my difficulty costs me victory in the LC.

So, I have barely been having any lucid dreams lately, as could be seen by the previous LC. I said back then that I needed to take a break, and I still do, but I can't resist. I think I might just have an ace up my sleeve that will allow me to get more lucids during this LC.

As for my personal goal, I have to become Iron Man, Thor and two of the following: Black Widow, Hawkeye, Wolverine, Spiderman. It doesn't have to be in the same dream. I've already been The Hulk a couple times, as well as Captain America. My goal is to become the Avengers from the movie, but Black Widow and Hawkeye are kind of boring to me, so I decided that I could also become Wolverine or Spiderman instead. If there's any issue with this personal goal, let me know.

Lately I managed to actually get lucid from LC hype, despite me not even being in the LC! I'm ready(I'm L@DY!) for some serious hype!
DDR Dream Mix is basically the name I give any Dance Dance Revolution games that appear in my dreams. I actually have more than just playing the game planned for this task in order to feel like I've really done it. I want to remember specific details and do other stuff. I feel like it will be a moderately challenging and fulfilling goal for me.

  5. En'enra - Investigation - Explore a different planet and meet aliens


This will be my first LC. I'd like to participate because it sounds like a lot of fun, and I'm sure it would be very useful in my quest for lucidity. Transformation is what I do best, but I figured that I don't have to practice that (and, well, three people already applied for that), and since Creation is what I'm worst at, I chose the middle. I have many exciting locations and weird DCs in my dreams, but I've never visited another planet, or met aliens, besides in combat. I hope that's an adequate goal. I'll try to fit in, but please forgive me in advance if I become confused :3

  6. Letaali - Investigation - Visit the Frozen Planet


In the last LC I did improve on my frequency of realizing I'm dreaming, but the lucid dreams didn't last long enough for me to do even one of the tasks lucid. I'll have to make them last longer. Reaching the frozen planet has been my goal for a long time. I want to go there to investigate the town inside the mountain. There are also a lot of superhuman abilities and stuff I would like to study to find out how they work in my dreams. In the last LC I had several dream where I got to study how different abilities work and feel in dreams. Some DCs even helped me with this. I'll hopefully continue this studying and I think it fits the team.

I didn't know if I should sign up or not, since it is summer and vacation is around the corner, but now that it will only last for 5 weeks, it will be OK! And I couldn't resist a creation team.

#8: Oleg - Investigation - Fly off into space

Acceptable? I sure hope so. :> As for why I chose 'investigation', it's because, while the action-oriented tasks were quite easy, they felt a bit underwhelming. So I'm going with something different now.

My LDs are short on average. In lucid dreaming, and dreaming in general, I'm looking for some adventure, and to try things which are otherwise out of reach in real life. In addition to my personal goal, I'd certainly like to try transforming something into something else.
