      Spellbee's Summer(-ish) Competition 2017

      Missed the signups but still want to join? Post in the sign up thread here to join for the second week.

      The competition begins on Friday, September 1st, at 8 PM YOUR time (wherever you are.)
      The competition will end on Sunday, September 17th, at 8 PM.


      Track the competition score LIVE, and see your personal stats here: Live Scoresheet
      Please PM me if you need a scoring correction or notice any bugs.

      Rules:
      • Honor system: Be honest and trust others to be honest.
      • Lucid dreams must be posted in your dream journal on DV with link posted here to count. If it’s short, you can put it in your post in a spoiler. If you don't want to post it because of sensitive matters or anything like that, then you can PM it to me.
      • Dreams must be lucid for Tasks and Goals to score points.
      • Don't abuse the point system - No spamming. Spamming means intentionally finding loopholes and using sneaky tactics to get ahead of other members, rather than earning points the normal ways. If you have a plan and think it might be spamming, PM me to ask. Any points achieved via spamming will be automatically disqualified. Please play fair and remember that this is a casual competition with friends. Encourage others and celebrate their successes as well as your own!
      • If you have any questions or need clarification to any rules, please PM me instead of posting them in this thread. I will update the OP if anything in particular needs extra clarification.

      ---------------------------------
      ANNOUNCEMENT!!
      ---------------------------------

      I surround all important competition announcements in a big, bold announcement block like this one. Even if you don't read the rest of the posts in the thread, please at least skim the thread for these blocks - they contain incredibly important information regarding the competition. They're huge and should stick out pretty easily.

      IMPORTANT! If you have not posted in this thread at all after the first 7 nights of the competition, you will be dropped from the competition and suspended from the following competition. Even if you aren’t scoring any points, please post it in the thread so I know you are participating, as failure to do so will result in your ejection from the competition. Also, if you know you will be unavailable for a period of time, please post something to let us know, or PM me (spellbee2) so you aren’t dropped.

      In light of this, at the half-way mark of the competition, if the lack of participation of some competitors has significantly thrown off the balance of the competition, I reserve the right to restructure the teams to restore a fair balance. This will only occur if the discrepancy is due to lack of participation, and any changes will be made at random, uninfluenced by individual/team scores at the time, and (as much as possible) performed with permission of the individuals affected.


      POINTS

      Induction and Recall
      In order for you to get points for an LD, you need to write it in your DJ on DV and post the link here.

      • Remember a Non-Lucid Fragment - point
      If you think more than 2 fragments are from the same dream, count them as 1 Full Dream instead.

      • Remember a Full Non-Lucid Dream - 1 point

      • First DILD of the Night - 10 points
      • Subsequent DILDs - 5 points

      • First WILD of the Night - 10 points
      • Subsequent WILDs - 5 points
      Note: DEILD after a non-lucid dream counts as a WILD

      • Chain a Lucid Dream - 2 points (Max. 10 points)
      Return to a lucid dream after a brief awakening mid-LD. A DEILD chain is over once you are awake long enough to write down the dream.

      • WBTB (success or failure) - 2 points (Only counts once per night)


      Dream Control Tasks

      IMPORTANT! - Points no longer stack for completing a single task that falls in multiple categories (i.e. Normal Dream Control, Task of the Month/Year, Personal Goal, etc.). Instead, it counts for the highest-scoring category. If you complete the same task multiple times, then it can count for the additional categories, but each category can only be scored once per task per night. For example, if you complete a weekly challenge involving full transformation, it only counts for the 20 points for the Weekly Challenge, and not an additional 10 for the advanced control task of full transformation. However, if you were to complete the transformation a second time in the same dream, you would then score those 10 points. Note that this rule does not apply to 3-Step Tasks, as those have always been purposely stackable.

      Each task can be completed once per dream/chain.
      Advanced versions of tasks earn points instead of basic versions, not in addition.

      Basic Tasks

      • Reality Check / Stabilization - 1 point

      • Interact with a Dream Character - 2 points

      +5 points if it is a fictional character from a book/movie/TV show/anime or Dream Guide

      • Advanced Unsummoning/Banishing - 10 points (make something/someone disappear right in your direct view / unsummon something larger than human-size)

      • Mass Telekinesis - 10 points (use telekinesis on 5+ objects at the same time, or one enormous object - something that can't be lifted in waking life)

      • Advanced Object/DC Changing - 10 points (change enormous object/DC into different object/DC, or many objects/DCs at the same time)

      • Time Control - 10 points (speeding up/slowing down/stopping time intentionally)

      DreamViews Extra Tasks[/COLOR]

      Each unique task can only be completed once during the competition.
      You can complete more than one Task of the Month per dream. As per official Task of the Year rules, those tasks must be completed in separate dreams to count.
      Tasks include:

      Task of the Month (September 2017)- 15 points/task (beginner tasks not included)

      Task of the Year (2017) - 20 points/task


      Dream Themes (Beginner and Intermediate only)
      Each week, a different theme will be given. If your dream (lucid or non-lucid) matches the theme, you earn an additional 5 points. Points for each theme can only be claimed once per night. Some themes may be open to slight interpretation (just keep in mind the Honor System).

      Week 1 Theme - 5 points: Apocalypse - The end of the world, or the Marvel supervillain (can’t let DC have all the fun this comp), take your pick.
      Week 2 Theme - 5 points: TBA at the end of Week 1


      Challenge Tasks

      There will be one Challenge Task each week. Each task must be completed during the assigned week.
      The second task will be announced at the end of Week 1.
      Points for each challenge can only be claimed once.

      Week 1 Challenge - 20 points

      Beginner: Draw a picture in the sand at a beach.

      Intermediate: Wear the costume of your team’s superhero.

      Expert: Fight and defeat The Joker (Team Batman) or Lex Luthor (Superman).


      Week 2 Challenge - 20 points - TBA at the end of Week 1

      Beginner:

      Intermediate:

      Expert:



      Three-Step Tasks

      Choose 3 different Dream Control Tasks from the Basic and Advanced Dream Control tasks above, excluding RC/Stabilization. DV Extra Tasks, Challenge Tasks, and Team/Enemy tasks can not be declared for the Three-Step tasks.

      Beginner: Pick any of the Basic or Advanced Dream Control Tasks

      Intermediate: At least 1 of the 3 must be Advanced Dream Control Tasks

      Expert: All 3 must be Advanced Dream Control Tasks

      Tasks must be completed in order.
      Multiple tasks can be completed in one dream, but they can also be completed in separate dreams.
      You may change tasks at any time, even if you are on task 2 or 3, as long as your updated task choices are posted before the night you complete them.
      If you choose to include an Unspecified Dream Control task, describe your task here in advance.
      In addition to receiving points for the Dream Control task, you will also receive bonus points:

      • Complete first chosen task - 5 points

      • Complete second chosen task - 10 points

      • Complete third chosen task - 15 points

      If you complete all 3 tasks during the first week, you may pick 3 more tasks to complete in Week 2. The same difficulty requirements from above apply.


      Team Tasks
      Asterisks* indicate that points can only be claimed for these tasks once during the competition.

      • Meet a teammate - 7 points (once per dream/chain)
      Each additional teammate in the same dream/chain - 3 points

      • Show your teammate a previous dream (in-dream)* - 10 points

      • Have a teammate take you somewhere from a previous dream of theirs* - 10 points

      • Have a teammate teach you something* - 10 points


      Enemy Tasks
      Note: "Enemy" refers to a member of the competition on a different team than you.
      Asterisks* indicate that points can only be claimed for these tasks once during the competition.

      • Meet an enemy - 5 points (once per dream/chain)
      Each additional enemy in the same dream/chain - 3 points

      • Fight an enemy* - 10 points

      • Fight one or more enemies with your teammate(s)* - 20 points

      • Convert your enemy to an ally* - 10 points (enemy must start out hostile)

      • Convert multiple enemies to allies in the same dream/chain* 20 points (enemies must start out hostile)


      Personal Goals

      Choose your own goals to complete in a lucid dream.
      Unlimited additional goals can be selected, but only ONE per night can be claimed for points.
      Each goal can only be scored once per competition.
      Goals must be different from other tasks in the competition, eg. "telekinesis" is not acceptable. More specific/unique versions may be okay, eg. "use telekinesis on a DC" - ask if you're not sure whether it's too similar to another task.
      Goals must require some degree of thought, not just things you might accidentally do in a dream anyway.
      You can find some ideas in the Lucid Dares thread under "Anyone Dares".
      Post your intended goals in this thread (wrap in spoilers if the list is long). Goals will only be awarded points if they are posted in advance.

      • Complete a NEW Personal Goal - 15 points (something that you have never done before in a lucid dream.)

      • Complete an OLD Personal Goal - 10 points (something that you have already done in any previous lucid dream, including outside of the competition.)


      Dream Journal Points

      Points will be awarded at the end of the competition for posting comments in other contestants' Dream Journals. Only DJ entries containing dreams from the competition are included.
      Only one comment per DJ entry will earn points (a conversation on the same entry will still count as one.)
      Add these to your posts as you go. Include how many DJ comments you made each day in your scoring posts, and I will add them to the scoresheet.

      1 point will be awarded for every 3 DJ comments.

      This is just a little kick to get people posting in Dream Journals. I feel a lot better about writing in a DJ knowing that people are going to read and comment on it; I am sure others feel like I do. It isn't worth many points because this is a dreaming competition, but it could add a few bonus points to your final score.
      When posting comments in a DJ, it is helpful to "like" the entry so that the member will get a notification on DV. You should also "like" any comments on your DJ when you read/respond to them, so that people know you have seen it.
      Make sure you read the dreams so you can make a comment with some substance (more than a quick one-word comment.)

      Tier Bonus
      The top scorers in the Intermediate and Beginner leagues earn a bonus for their team based on their position.

      • 1st - 100 points
      • 2nd - 50 points


      Now what?

      Post your task choices for the following:
      - Three-Step Tasks
      - Personal Goals

      Keep track of your nightly scores and post your updates/subtotals here when you can.

      Have fun everyone, and good luck!

      Edits (all times Eastern):
      9/2/17 11:41a - Added a missing competitor (sorry).
      9/3/17 5:58p - Added scoresheet link.

      I knew it as soon as I signed up I was immediately scheduled for the interview

      So since I'll be stressed until at least half way thru, I want to request the theme of "You find yourself in an interview" and will set one of my new tasks to be like "I will answer a question in a Lucid Interview"

      since no doubt that is what I'll be dreaming about. I am going to set my mantra to "If I'm in an interview, I'm dreaming" and hope in the actual interview I don't do too much reality checking, or try to fly!

      meanwhile I will begin my two nights of practicing sleep disruption, setting my alarm for every hour on the hour, hopefully this time my S+ sleep tracker won't fail and I will get the Disrupted Pattern Hypnogram I was looking forward to last time

      Sure LUCID DREAMS are all fun and games until someone loses a third eye.

      Going to be late on Night 1 is a sure-fire way to do terrible, but I'm feeling optimistic at least.

      3-step:
      1) Flying
      2) Telekinesis
      3) Partial Transformation

      Personal Goals:
      New: Transform into a werewolf.

      Gonna try something different this comp. Usually I have a butt-ton of goals and never accomplish any of them. So I'm just gonna declare one so I can focus my efforts solely on that one.

      Been thinking about my goals and whatnot a lot more this time. So here goes...

      3ST:
      Partial Transformation
      Element Manipulation
      Advanced Flying

      Personal goals:
      [NEW] After transforming at least my hands/arms to Ryuuko, take a good and detailed look at them, take notes
      [NEW] After a full Ryuuko transformation, focus on my body and feel as much of it as possible, take notes
      [NEW] Use plasma breath - Extends Element Manipulation
      [NEW] Try to establish a different weight/mass ratio and experiment with how it feels
      [NEW] When flying, dive-bomb into something, or someone if there's an adequately unfortunate target
      [NEW] Cross arms and grab something with auxilliary appendages instead

      Another personal goal for this competition, albeit not one with separate points is gonna be at least 1 more WILD, considering my last, and also first WILD is still just a couple days ago and I'm getting a feeling for the transition phases.
      I'm creating animated Fractals!: HexaChronos
      Personal Records so far: Max lucids per day: 2 | Max lucids per week: 4 | Max lucids per month: 8 | Max dreams recalled in one night: 17
      Longest lucid dream: ~35min | Highest flight: zoomed out of common existence [WTF?] | Fastest speed: FTL | DILD/EILD/DEILD [X] | WILD/VILD [X] | MILD/FILD/HILD [ ]
      Interested to know how I got 17 dreams in one single night? And how I think I still could Improve? Check out my new and improved Dream Recall Compendium: The Dream Recall Compendium

      Night 1

      4 Nonlucid dreams. I want to avoid a 3500 word entry for nonlucids like what happened in the last comp, so I only summarized these dreams. Also a WBTB if you could call it that.

      Spoiler for dreams:

      I was some kind of model of robot or android that was undergoing testing in my high school gymnasium. My android body looked like me although I was non-lucid. This other guy came up to me and attacked me. When I punched him, his face broke apart to reveal he was an android too.

      A scientist came in and announced that I, the 6000 model android, had managed to beat a model 5777 android and I had passed testing. I went and talked to my friend S and the dream scene changed to the basement of my old house.

      -+-

      I was going back to college. I walked around this very long building made up of classrooms, study lounges and stores along one hallway. I was trying to find the room that my class on spirituality and meditation would be in, but I couldn't find them. I managed to run into the professor and ask him the question I had about the first assignment. I then walked back and went outside with a group of students. Some guys were trailing me and one of them looked like the android from the previous dream.

      As we walked over a high metal truss bridge the guys picked me up, and before I could realize what was happening they threw me over the edge. (Somebody else must have realized what was happening because somebody; I couldn't see who in the dark; was taking pictures as evidence for the police). I was completely nonlucid as I fell over the side, and started thinking about how it would feel when I hit the rocks in the river below below and more than likely died. I mentally prepared myself for a very painful impact but I instead woke up.


      I woke up here. Figured I'd use the fouled up dream as an opportunity WBTB.

      I must have been thinking about my lightsaber fight goal because at some point I was in the Jedi temple with the blue shoto-lightsaber a dream about a week and a new full length orange one. Yoda was there and told me that these were dangerous weapons and that I should be careful. I then remember going to a training room where flying drones shot at me with nonlethal lasers and I would try to block them.

      -+-

      I false awoke sometime later, failed an RC, and got my laptop. I was typing up the first 3 dreams on dreamviews when I woke up.

      Hey Spellbee, you forgot to add my name though I signed up.

      Here's my first night:
      NLD: 3 (3pts)
      DILD: 1 (10pts)
      Stabilization: 1pt
      Interact with dream character: 2pts
      Night total: 16pts
      Comp total: 16pts

      Spellbee Summer Comp - Day 1 - Murderer's Mercy

      Spoiler for Dreams:


      First Sleep

      Dream 1.

      A murderer is in the house and the occupants are hiding, some have already been killed. The murderer catches me in the living room. I plea for mercy and negotiate another chance at hiding. He lets me go. I run once around the floor and see him again, eating cheerios from a toilet in the kitchen. I am scared if he sees me, he will target me, but I can't resist calling him out for being so weird "What the heck are you doing?!" I shout at him, before opening the door to the basement and running down the stairs. I am surprised to see that there is a whole underground city below the house and the stairs are lighted by torches so my roommates can see when the murderer will come down this way. I find all the others eating around a large table near the staircase having a five course meal. I sit among them; the threat is gone.

      Dream 2.
      Hair cut, with my family around, talking.

      Dream 3.
      With coworkers in a park on Saturday playing games and chilling in different locations. Our boss tells us "if this wasn't the weekend, I would be going crazy watching you all wasting your time!"

      Wake up for the bathroom. Go back to sleep with intention of lucid dreaming.

      Dream 4.
      I fell asleep faster than expected. I believe I am mentally revisiting an old dream (which parallels my first dream) except, I'm really dreaming. In the dream, myself and other nomads are being targeted by a monkey murderer in the wild near a river (Somehow, in the dream, it feels as though monkeys are the dominating race at the moment). I get caught but I plea for mercy and ask to be given another chance. It is granted. I run along the path but until now, the dream was very low visual quality and was more mental. As I run on the path, it becomes quite vivid for a short bit. I mistakenly believe that I am WILDing; I thought I was thinking before, not dreaming. I keep running on the path to stabilize the dream, focusing on the visual and the feeling of the path on my feet. The dream stabilizes, the path merges into the sidewalk of a small town. There is a small fallen tree in the way. I hear my mom calling me to wake up from what I think is the real world but I focus on the dream instead of waking life (but really, I'm really just focusing on this dream versus a false awakening). I jump over a branch and crouch below another, touching and feeling the ground. There are people on the sidewalk. I touch them as I pass them and say things like "hello there!" and I am aware my very real voice is only booming in the dream but not real life. I walk into a house were people are having dinner. Someone is tied up as a chandelier. I meet a few people but I am now looking from outside my dream body. I am transiently aware that I am outside my dream body, and I am starting to be very passive in the dream, losing awareness. I am reunited with my royal family as I somehow rescued my brother the king from the group in the house. Other people give him gifts for his return. I hold him at the temples and tell him that the challenge is not to accept the gifts but to embrace becoming happy. My wisdom is physically transported from my hand to his head via bright artifices.




      I didn't set my goals yet so here they are:
      3 steps:
      1. Fully phase
      2. Advanced summoning
      3. Change gravity

      Personal goals:
      1. Go to mental temple
      2. Crew a pirate ship

      Night 1:
      2NLD: 2 points
      1 fragment: 0.5 point
      WBTB: 2 points

      Total: 4.5 points

      I think I either couldn't be aware upon waking or didn't have DEILD on my mind. I know I can do it tough, I got it on the first night I tried it.

      Whoopsie, don't know how I did that. It's fixed now.

      Night 1:

      2 NLDs - 2
      1 Fragment - 0.5
      WBTB - 2
      DILD - 10
      Flying + 1st Step - 5+5 = 10

      Spoiler for DILD:
      I'm in this forest-like area when I realize I'm dreaming. I immediately think of my first step to start flying. Instead of taking off immediately, I instead decide to calmly make myself float upwards. As my feet leave the ground, the trees around me start flickering in and out of existence, like holograms glitching out. I get a few feet up when the dream fully destabilizes.


      Night 1 - 24.5 pts

      I think I had another 2 lucids, but my recall was pretty terrible so I don't remember anything about them.
