I had a long lucid dream in which I entered the picture I posted, completed my personal goal (yessss) and I'm not sure if seeing and controlling an animated room could count as dreaming in an animated style? Anyways, it was a lot of fun. ^^

Finishing strong for a change... Medium LD Shrank and explored a fish tank. Transformed into an aquatic animal (goldfish). Raced on a toy race track using a car then a hoverbike.

As for my dream locations are the top of the San Francisco/Radical Highway bridge and Gold Coast, Australia. Hopefully I can use a route throughSpeed Highway to get to the bridge. At this point I'll need a fairly decent portion luck to pull this off while lucid.






Current LD goal(s): A man in a white room, very long dreads, he resembles me..He knows somethin..

I had an ND where I visted the picture in my dreams. It was kind of a creepy abandoned road but at the same time It felt inspiring.

after that I WBTB and had the longest LD ever via WILD . I saw Thorn and Obfusc8, which helped me stay lucid. I did alot of things that weren't for tasks, but I wont bring them up because the dream was insanely long... I also did many things that were tasks while they were on my mind. I saw a full moon, that was huge in the sky. On top of that, later in the dream I tried to become a dragon. It took a lot of work (and frustration) but eventually I was able to become a colossal dragon inside a city. I actually did inside a building which ended up destroying the building from the inside out. The first thing I did when I was a dragon was let out a massive roar. and caused some more destruction

Summary:
- post pic, dream in it (10 points)
- Post only one pic (20 points)
- Early bonus (10 points)
*Different dream, wbtb
- Longest lucid dream (outbeating my previous from the Ld4small week)
- Witness full moon ( 20 points)
- Become a dragon (50 points)
- Do so in a city (40 points)
- Roar (40 points)
- Cause mass destruction (40 points)

Final Results
PostPosted: Sat 08 Aug, 2015  Reply with quote

En'enra, congrats on a strong final day! If Jer didn't post today, you'd've taken second place from him since you beat his total from yesterday by 10 points. So close! That said, third place is nothing to be sad about and you had an extremely strong performance all LC long, so I hope you're really proud of yourself and will stick with LDing and the LC in the future.

obfusc8, a strong finish indeed! You cleared 3000 points in the eleventh hour, which is an amazing feat! I'm still challenging you even if I'm impressed! Double-giant dragon will beat normal-giant, fire-breathing dragon! ROAR!

Koharo, nice job getting an LD at the end. smile

Jer, turning into a dragon and being larger than life is quite a nice way to end the LC! Congrats on getting your longest LD ever right at the end! You may not have first place, but you definitely know how to end on the right note!

It's finally time to conclude the LC! We finish up our story and check out the final scores!

Final Results
  1. obfusc8 (3050)
  2. Jer (2465)
  3. En'enra (2165)
  4. Koharo (1230)
  5. Scipio Xaos (1050)
  6. Susan_Y (945)
  7. Siiw (875)
  8. Eilatan (760)
  9. Mew151, drd (470)

  10. James_UK2008 (430)
  11. Letaali (300)
  12. Lumessence (280)
  13. Coasty (160)
  14. Zaibatsu (70)
  15. Yanshuf (60)
Here's the final score breakdown. A big congratulations to obfusc8 for his win! He can choose to host LC 51 or pass it on to Jer. The last time obfusc8 had the opportunity to host two LCs in a set of three consecutive ones, he passed, so while I can't guarantee what he'll do, I encourage Jer to start thinking of some LC ideas just in case.

Of course, significant things happen in LCs to people other than the winners.
  • En'enra had a very consistent performance all LC long that I hope she's very proud of.
  • Jer had a very impressive rally in the second half of the LC, moving from 9th place at the start of Week 7 all the way to 2nd place by the end. He had incredibly long LDs on several occasions, finished the LC with a really elegant colossal dragon transformation, and even won LC 1! (There's no LC 2 to host, though. ) It's been absolutely amazing watching his progress and I hope he continues to be a strong lucid dreamer and is proud of himself.
  • Scipio Xaos earned the most character points. If anybody's aiming to create a stable dream world, having a dream self for it that isn't just the waking life self is a great first step.
  • Thorn is just awesome. What? Why are you looking at me like that?
  • Eilatan, who used to not be into lucid dreaming much and would often talk of preferring normal dreams, had three lucid dreams this week and showed off incredible incubation skills. I hope she continues to develop both.
If you have any last-minute points to post, I'll definitely add them in. I simply put up the results because the top three had their final night of dreaming already and their finishing positions are all but guaranteed.

Jer, Scipio, and I had a Skype talk about this LC, which you can listen to here. Even if you didn't get a chance to attend the Skype chat, please tell me everything on your mind about this LC. Whether it's what you liked about the new LC mechanics or what you disliked, your love for certain week themes and tasks or your hatred of them, your feelings on the four- or five-week LCs compared to the older style of seven weeks, or anything else, all of this information will help the next host. It's impossible for you to say too much, so say everything!

I want to thank all of you for your participation, and may whichever dragon hosts the next LC create the same competitive yet friendly atmosphere as this one had. With that said, this LD4all dragon wants his LDs back, so I'll join you guys on the participant side next time!




Current LD goal(s): Get back into good LDing habits

Congratulations, obfusc8 ! cheer

Thank you for the kind words, Thorn. smile Of course, I'm not sad about ending up in the third place at all. I consider this LC my greatest achievement so far, and the highlight of the year I spent here. There were so many precious and unforgettable dreams. I learned a lot about myself and lucid dreaming in general, even with all the frustration sometimes. Thank you for hosting it and thanks to the other participants, reading about their dreams was an absolute pleasure.

The tasks I enjoyed the most, hmmm... This will probably sound stupid, but I was so happy about getting to drive that bus in the first week. grin The stories I was retelling to my friends the most were about playing beach volleyball with zombies and eating in a castle restaurant. Of course, I enjoyed the Vampire/Dragon tasks immensely.

As I said in chat, there were two breakthroughs for me - transformation and teleportation. I need more practice with the first, but having an effective means of teleportation will make things a lot easier for me in the future. I'm really glad that the LC was set up to practice the things I wasn't good at.

Best of luck to the host of the next challenge. I'll have to skip it because I'll need to focus on other things in the following months, but I hope I'll do even better when I return to the LC. siiw

Congratulations to Obfusc8 for winning the 50th LC! :D

I would also like to say thank you to Thorn for hosting such a great competition. The LC really helps me grow as a lucid dreamer, and forces me to do my best in a competitive setting. I had some of my longest LD 's over the last couple weeks.. that wouldn't of been possible without you guys. Good luck to all you dreamers in the next LC!

Well I'm glad the forum was down for maintenance this morning when I was going to post my reply... I have stuff left over from my previous hosting that I couldn't fit in, knowing it was going to be a busy summer for me with work and personal projects meant making a quick 4 week challenge instead. So my intention if I won was to host, but now I know this, I'm passing to give Jer the opportunity.

(That and it'd be nice to get away on holiday before the end of the summer, so might take a few weeks off from the lucid practice anyway.)

Regarding feedback... week 7 was epic. :D You probably already gathered that I found those tasks really fun. Also the hoverbike week was awesome - any excuse to mess around on two wheels (even if they're hovering off the ground) gets my vote.

Bad stuff... honestly weeks 1-3 found my motivation dropping. There were only a couple of transformation tasks and flying ones that I was really interested in. You wouldn't catch me in a gym or a sewer in RL, let alone spending valuable lucid time there. I love the outdoors... why do a spin class in a gym when you can hop on a real bike and go for an adventure? But that's just me, and weeks 4-7 more than made up for it. ^^

En'enra really challenged me all the way through with impressive long lucids and dream control. Jer kept the pressure on at the end, forcing me to up my game and not slack off. So thanks to you both, and to Thorn for hosting. And thanks to all the other participants who shared their dreams, they were cool to read... beers or non-alcoholic beverages of your choice all round. bier

But… but…! Nooooooo… my dragons must keep dreaming!

That said, hosting is your decision, whether Jer wants to or not. I was just quoting what happened before, not saying you should or shouldn't host. smile

I agree! You won the LC, not me. You have every right to host if you so choose.
