LC 64 - Winner: Obliverum

Introduction
Welcome, everyone, to the Lucidity Challenge 64!!

The purpose of the Lucidity Challenge (LC) in its current form is to serve as a motivator for good lucid dream practices, to create an atmosphere of both competition and cooperation, to create a challenge for lucid dreamers of all levels, and to provide fun to all participants. I hope that everybody gets to experience all of these while participating!

I imagine most everyone is familiar with the LC, but for those who might not be here's a few pieces of important information about the contest:

    The LC is a, usually, 4-5 week test of lucid dreaming skills and general dreaming abilities. A Task Master, that's me, provides various challenges or "tasks" to competitors, that's you, each week. Competitors then aim to complete those tasks in dreams and report their successes here in order to gain points.

    A Dream Journal is not required, but is highly recommended. Keeping a DJ helps one with their dream recall and lucidity as well as provides the Task Master (and others) with a way to learn more about the interesting dreams you have! You can claim tasks without submitting a Dream Journal entry, if you'd like, but I will not be able to point out any potential task claims that you may have overlooked if you do!

    I believe that it is the responsibility of the Task Master to read the DJ entries of the contestants, but it is equally the responsibility of the contestants to supply DJ entries. I will not go and look through everyone's DJ for dreams eligible, but I will read all dream entries posted or linked in this thread. (Please enclose entries posted in this thread in spoiler tags.)

Logistics
LC 64 signups are, as of now, officially open! You may sign up by quoting the latest signup post below and adding your name to the list. I have posted the blank template below so that the first person may do so easily.

LC 64 will have 4 tasks and be 4 weeks long. It will begin the first Friday morning that we have 10 participants signed up or on Friday, March 15th. Whichever comes first.

Tasks and updates shall be posted Friday mornings at 0900 Eastern Time. This should give most folks half a day or so to prep for the big weekend dreams. Likewise, the competition shall end at this time four weeks from its start date, but 24 hours shall be provided for last minute claims.

Scores can be tracked here, at this Google Docs Spreadsheet.

Scoring
The scoring of this LC shall be different and slightly simplified compared to previous LCs. Several scoring options have been removed and the points in general have been scaled down.

As usual, lucid dream lengths are subjective and based on personal bests. If you have not had any lucid dreams before participating in this challenge please consider any lucid dream length of less than a minute to be short, greater than a minute but less than three minutes to be medium, and greater than three minutes to be long.

Point Summary

Additionally, advanced LDers / naturals may find the tasks too easy and there a lack of competition. In order to curb this, several optional handicaps are available to choose from. Please mention in your signup post if you wish to take a handicap, and remember there is no pressure to do so!

Hopefully I do better this time. My dream recall last time was pretty awful.

"Whichever comes first" that's an interesting rule change. We've had difficulty getting enough signups recently, so we might end up starting with fewerpeople. I think it's a good idea. Thete's a risk more people will drop out if the start is delayed too long.

P.S. thanks for agreeing to host this one!

Each subtask has a certain point value ascribed to it, all of which are even numbers. Please note whether or not you were lucid when you completed a subtask as subtasks completed while not lucid are worth half as many points as those completed while lucid.

Susan_Y: Yea.. I was trying to figure out a way to keep the ball rolling as fast as possible with the LCs. It'd be nice to not have 2-3 month intermissions anymore. I'm kinda hoping the short signup period would encourage people to join a little faster than normal, but we may end up starting with less than 10 people, sadly. People are still free to join after the competition has began, though!

Majah: Just trying out something new. Maybe I felt a bit guilty about getting so many points in NLDs.

Obliverum: I'm excited for everyone to participate! :D

So nice taking part in a LC again smile


GenghisKhan - Ask A. to help me with a personal matter - Handicap: no lucid points from WILD. DILD max points = short LD


I am struggling with a specific personal matter in real life
A is directly involved in this and I wish to attempt relieving some stress by asking her help during an LD
I am very curious on how this can affect my waking life

I keep the DILD points to a minimum to motivate myself in recognizing the dream state

Welcome aboard, GenghisKhan! Just be sure to let me know which lucids you want counted so I can add them to the scoreboard as needed. wink5 Also, to the next person to signup, please quote this message so you can get the full list above!

Welcome, Koal and Majah! I've been without internet for a few days so I haven't been able to respond here.

Reminder to everyone else that the LC starts this Friday! Make sure you sign up before then to be able to have maximum amount of time to work on tasks. wink5

  6. Susan_Y - See a musical instrument - No handicaps


I'l try and play some music too, but I'll consider it a success if I just do the first step of acquiring a musical instrument.

I'm going to be bit busy this month, so I'm probably going to achieve fewer tasks than last time.
