I would love to join!! I would “quote” the list of people in front of me but it seems that we've kind of led astray from that.

Jer - Fly into outer space

Sorry for being a little late. I usually read these forums but I’ve never looked into the Lucid challenges until now. I would like to join because it sounds like a fun way to grow in my lucid journey.

Sorry for being quiet yesterday, I was at work most of the time. Anyone who asked to join is in the LC. I've divided the teams and will announce in just under two hours. Most people were able to get into their team of choice as we were able to do an 8/6 split with the late comers.

@Scipio: So, you noticed that, eh? I was wondering if anyone would. Clearly it was all a part of my plan to see if people picked a team based on its color or content >.>. Also, congrats on the first points! Scores... wait, I need a scoresheet. Right, I'll have one of those soon.

@Awe: Yes, give me a personal goal and if you complete it at any point in the LC, you get 100pts. As for the rest, check out the rules on the first post. Long story short, you get points for team challenges, points for individual challenges, and points for having LDs. Welcome to the LC!

@Oleg: I'll remind you if needed tounge2

@Jer: welcome to you as well! And don't worry, I'll fix the list tounge2

As far as teams go, I tried to get everyone on the team they wanted as best as I could. A couple of you could not fit on one, but don't worry, you can still do the other team's tasks as well. The only downside is you don't get as many points. Remember, though, most LC winners do tasks for all teams to score as much as possible.

Please remember this is kind of an experiment. I'm trying to make this work as much as I can, but we're bound to hit a few bumps. It happens any time the LC tries something new. PM me if you have questions, suggestions, or concerns.

No luck for me last night (I'm hoping it wont take me too long to get some points on board). I had two NDs and cant remember hardly a thing about one of them in which who knows could of had a castle in it. I was trying to find vampires but don't even remember the location till the end of the dream when I finally saw a person in a street carrying a vampire on her back. (I've been quite ill and its really affecting my ability to be able to get to my normal WILD state without giving up due to exhaustion.. so its not surprising I'm dreaming vampires when Im feeling like every ounce of my energy has been drained).
..
..
I had a pie turn up in the other ND (Im trying to do the beauty of the pie challenge) but didn't get lucid.

Task 1 Team Challenges

The Story
Click here to see the hidden message (It might contain spoilers)


The Magic Team
Thorn

sea-dove
drd
Oleg



The Science Team

demented
Scipio Xaos
Jer
Koal44

Magic Individual Tasks
White Magic: Use your powers to heal a wound or bring someone back to life. +20 pts

Alchemy: Change the properties of an object around you. Maybe turn lead to gold, or a piece of metal into water. It's fine if you transform the object in general, but the goal is to change at least one of its physical properties. +30 pts

Magic Team Task
Summon magic: Summon a creature into this world to fight for you. Like the mages of old, you must do some kind of ritual to summon the creature, not just make it appear. If you get someone from the magic team to help you, you get double points! +40/40 pts

Science Individual Tasks
Invention: Create a new invention using only objects found around you. MacGuyver tiiiime! +20 pts

Exploration: Find a new type of life form, whether plant, animal, or living toaster etc. Examine it in detail and report back. +30 pts

Science Team Task
Experimentation: Science can't get anywhere without experiments. Ethics? Psh. Who needs those? Find some poor soul and experiment on them. Give them cyborg implants, turn them into some horrid beast (*sigh*, yes you can interpret this as TF... but you'd better make the TF part of an experiment!), or maybe just see if you can cure their cancer (if they don't have cancer, this might be a two-step process). Experiment on another team member for added science! +40/40 pts

Versus Team Task
And now for something different! Whatever team you are on, find and defeat someone from the other team. Now, I won't be mean and say that they have to use their team's powers, but you do have to use the power of your team to help you defeat them. You can get help from other team members if you want, but there's no extra points for that. As you have to do this task with another person from the LC, there's no 40/40 split. +80 pts for defeating them with science or magic respectively.

List of loopholes you can't exploit and other useful info

Tasks do not have to be done in the middle ages.

"Defeat" in the Versus Team Task refers to a fight, not a competition like racing etc.

There is no team discussion area as there's no team-created task.

Tasks can be combined if you're creative enough, but you can't use science to do magical things and magic to do science...y things. For example, you can't invent a device to heal someone and then use that device to claim the first Magic Task. That's using a scientific instrument to heal, not your powers.

Transforming someone with dream powers is not an experiment. Transforming someone as the result of an experiment is fine. For example, you might make them drink potion you've just made.

The summoned creature does not have to fight anyone, that was just flavor text. Still, it would be more fun if it did.

You do not have to wear the clothes from the story. Both the magic stone and the mechanical suit can theoretically change your clothing to whatever you'd like

You can experiment on yourself, but you must be the one doing the experiment. You can't have your team mate or a DC experiment on you. You and your team mate can experiment on someone else, too, if you prefer, but you still must do the experiment.

If you ask me a question or I make a decision to not grant points for a certain reason, I will post it here so there is as little confusion as possible.

I visited Ironforge last night in a non-lucid dream. A massive fortress built into a mountain. It has a king. I think it counts for a castle.

I also recall seeing a dream forming in front of me and I started to become lucid during it. I felt fear for reasons unknown and wanted to wake up. I'm happy with 5 points from that.

Hey Sea-dove! believe it or not but you can actually use your sickness to you advantage, especially if you keep waking up every few moments, it keeps you in the in-between state, the place where strangeness happens, its real fun. yesterday i found myself sleeping in a friends couch which was no near to comfortable, due to me flipping from side to side constantly i had three false awakening, it was extremely fun and funny!
one of them involving a mad barking fur ball dog which was not good enough to fool me i was not dreaming while in another one i found myself naked in the apartment actually wondering if im REALLY naked in the apartment or if this is another false awakening, when i found a DC i realized it cant be real since that person doesnt exist...

well yeah! fun times, had a few drinks before so they were all short and even though i upped my lucidity once it didnt make much change. but its not fair blaming the booze, i take full responsibility of my actions.

so use every moment to your advantage!

Wow.. I did not expect to make progress so quickly. Last night I really focused on the "explore a castle" subtask. I ended up having a Short LD where I went inside a castle. When I woke up I was so excited that I typed it up on the computer, in the middle of the night. Here is the LD . Sorry for the bad grammar/ awkward phrasing.

"There were many of us, and we were looking for people. They were “wanted” for something. We approached an area with a bunch of small mini huts, which surrounded a small stone fortress. Everyone was checking the small huts for the wanted people. I was drawn to the fortress for some reason. It was made of stone, but had unnatural colouring. It was neon blue, pink, yellow, etc. Something was special about the fortress… I couldn’t remember what. I saw a man move in the window of the fortress. I started jumping up and down, telling everyone that I saw the people we were looking for in the fortress. They just ignored me and continued looking through the huts. I was angry that they wouldn’t listen. None of this was making much sense; why were they ignoring me? What was with the castle? It was at this moment, I gained lucidity; I realized I was dreaming, and everything made sense. I walked back towards the people, this time with more confidence and thought, “this is my dream! They have to listen to me!” … when I got there I said “couldn’t we have checked the castle by now?”. Suddenly everyone listened to me and walked towards the fortress. They went inside in search of the “wanted people”. I went in after them all as well. I was walking down the main corridor... It was at this point, that everything started to collapse. But not like how you would expect a castle to collapse. The fortress sort of “deflated” like how a tent would fall after you pulled a peg out. During the collapse of the castle, I saw one of the wanted people in front of me. Their face looked pained, and in agony, as if their life was about to end. I slowly lost lucidity in the confusion, and the dream faded shortly after.// "

I used the word "fortress" and "castle" interchangeably in the DJ. Hopefully this can qualify for some points! draait
Best of luck!

No points from me today, sadly, but I did just notice that your post said Scipio scored the first points. What did I miss in my castle dream on the previous page that made it not qualify for the points? I've been having plenty of dreams themed after a tabletop RPG campaign in which I'm involved, so I'd like to know what exactly is needed so I don't post unnecessary dreams of castles.

oh I wish. Being so exhausted is causing me to sleep like the dead (and not remember dreams to top that off), that is when I'm finally getting to sleep. I usually have insomnia but being sicker is making the insomnia worst. The more exhausted I are, the more trouble I have in getting to sleep and I'm certainly not wanting to wake myself up in middle of night seeing I'm having issues with getting to sleep.

When I'm doing well with this stuff I can remember 7-9 dreams a night. Last night I couldn't remember any and its been that way most nights since I've got sicker. I got a few tricks up my sleeve which I haven't tried before to try to evoke a LD seeing I cant WILD currently (I'm about to go and it a daytime try, I used to be able to during the day but haven't done that for ages).

I used to have a tulpa who I've previously programmed to help me to LD but I never needed to use him for that, so I'm going to over the next week work on connecting with him and ask him to help me with my LD.

I wanted to do reasonably well with this challenge though I hadn't been working on LD for a while too much life stuff going on. (I may have to accept I'm not going to currently do well with it but who knows, if my LD ability hits back in I should do well with it).

Funny you say that as I once had a false awakening (I don't get many of those) with a mad barking furry dog in it too. I'd long forgot about it till you mentioned it as it was quite a time ago. I dreamed I'd been staying at a friends house and was sleeping on their couch and this barking woke me up.

Anyway.. off to bed for me to try for a daytime WILD.
