Yes this is another one of those contract threads, but this one is different. The greeks believed that when the waters of the river styx were invoked in an oath that oath could not be broken, even by a god. This attempts to draw on the powers of the oath to cause a lucid dream.

By the waters of the river styx I swear that I will have a lucid dream this night.

There now I win either way, either I have an LD, or I prove I'm more powerful than a god tounge1

I can't decide if you're being serious or if this is spam and should be locked.

Correct me if I wrong please because my memory of mythology has for the most part left me but, isn't the river Styx located in the under world? So if you use it in a modern context wouldn’t you be asking for help from a source that resides in hell whatsthat

Personally, I’m sticking to the wishing well. Seems safer to me wink

Isn't this just another form of MILD? Or you could call it a GILD (god invoked lucid dream). wink

And since when do MILDs count as a shortcut?

....but what will happen if you do?

Hell, as you conceive it is a modern idea. The ancient Greeks did not have the same conception. Hades was the world of the dead, not of damned souls. Damned souls is strictly a Christian concept.

Well, I tried it out two nights in a row and they didn't work for me, but I might as well try it one more time and put it in writing.
By the waters of the river Styx read I will have a lucid dream tonight! dark

Where are the other contract threads?

I must try this, when I was little, I and my friend, decided too believe in the Greek gods grin so I hope this works now.
So let's try it;

By the waters of the river Styx, I will have a long vivid LD tonight that I will remember.

Let's hope I'm not more powerful than a god tounge2



Current LD goal(s): Play chess on the moon :), transform into a guinea pig

You are both wrong.Greek mythology had a place for the "damned" souls,or at least for the people that insulted gods somehow.It was called Tartarus and the opposite of this one was called Elysian Fields.Hades was just the place that all the dead went by the time they died,and then it was decided where they were supposed to go.Enough of the greek mythology tounge2
I think it needs strong will so that you would believe that you are going to be in a lucid dream.I don't have that much will but then what do i have to lose..

[b][u]I give an oath to you,I shall dream tonight ,I will control that dream and i will remember it]

Ok if this works it means i have much more will than i believe tounge2 siiw

Good to see you have faith, Dawn'sDeath, but faith is dust without practice.

I suggest WBTB.
