      Task of the Month for October 2013


      Introduction:
      This topic is for the Lucid Tasks that are assigned by the Lucid Task Club and the On-Topic Administrator. Please attempt any or all of these tasks throughout the month.

      Report back in this thread, even if you didn't successfully accomplish the task. Your efforts should make interesting reading! This is required in order to get credit, it is no longer sufficient just to say that you did it.

      When you complete a task: go to your control panel, then to permission groups, and request to be in the group that applies to the task that you've done: either a basic or an advanced or both (specify in the description field if it was the bonus task). Of course you still need to post the dream here because we check.


      Whoever completes any of these tasks gets the following goodies until the end of the month:
      • Your name will be displayed in ORANGE in the online members list at the bottom of the main forum page.
      • You will receive a special title and badge.
      • You will receive access to the "Lucid Task Club" which is a limited access forum for people that complete a lucid task each month. Members of this club can submit suggestions for the next month's tasks.

      Tasks for this month:

      Basic Task i - Scare a kid. Describe their reaction.
      Basic Task ii - Eat a piece of Halloween candy (advanced if it was poisoned).

      Advanced Task i - Have a witch cast a spell (good or bad) on you. Describe the effects.
      Advanced Task ii - Confront or be confronted by a Yūrei/Onryō. Another reference.

      BONUS TASK!! - Have surgery performed on yourself while still conscious (or perform it yourself). Examples: amputation, -ectomy, transplant, C-section, face-lift.. use your imagination!

      An interesting read about the onryo. I may enjoy seeing if I can create such a distinct DC. Thanks for the link and the idea.

      Wowie, No easy ones for me in there........

      I'll change that to, I know some witches but they just sell witchy artifacts in seedy second hand stores and give witchy advice... I never saw one cast a spell and if they did i'm not sure what it might cost me..

      I opened the first link of the second advanced task and now I'm sure I'll have a nightmare.

      But interesting tasks, I'll try to scare a kid!

      Oh, Man! I'm so easily frightened in the dream world...I suck at summoning. I'm not sure if I can even get a piece of candy to appear, but I'm willing to see what happens. I love candy corn, so my goal is to shout, "CANDY CORN APPEAR!" In the hopes that I can make it rain candy corn....with my luck it will turn into a candy corn monster and I will scare myself awake!

      Now that you've mentioned it, that's probably what's going to happen to me too.

      I totally know about the LD fear thing, been there myself. I still TO THIS DAY haven't ever gone in the water in a lucid dream. I did manage to overcome my fear of the portal to hell, but it took a few tries. It also took me daydreaming about the task. Like I would tell myself "Ok, when you get to that portal and see all the fire and hear all the screaming, you will remind yourself that it's a dream and your body is safe in bed." I would also take it step by step in my mind during the day. For instance, I would imagine the portal forming (which I made by pressing my face through the floor, phasing in essence), then once I saw it, I would imagine a rope and climbing down etc. The point is, focusing on the steps I needed to accomplish that task (go to hell, drink a beer with the devil), made it less scary. SO less scary in fact, that the subsequent times I made it to hell, there were no more demons or fire.

      I believe truly, that our feelings fuel the dream. When I was scared in the LD, what happened ended up extra scary. Then when I went at it rationally and with a plan, it diffused the scary stuff. I want to find a happy balance though, because if things get too diffused, then I can't finish the task there either. I'm just climbing down a tunnel and I'm too brave and nothing appears lol. But I'm hoping that we'll all be able to tackle these issues, one way or another, with this month's spooky tasks!

      Good Luck Everybody!!

      Thanks OB!

      I will try my best to do just what you explained...it doesn't sound that bad when you put it like this. I will just practice during the day of what I need to do and get the damn job done! "CANDY CORN...NOW!"

      The onryo sounds interesting! I'd love to come across one in a dream and help them get the vengeance that they seek! Bonus task seems terrifying though One of my fears is going into surgery but still being conscious due to a mess-up from the anesthesiologist... (shivers)

      Okay I read these tasks last night, and I thought they were a bit lame at first. I then had a lucid dream where I cast a spell on a DC, instead of a witch on me. I made the DC fall asleep in a recliner chair, did a few things I forgot, then I came back to reverse the spell to wake him up. I mostly forgot about him, except the FBI was snooping around as he was reported missing. I woke him up, and he looked at me and ran off, yelling that I was the devil! I then watched harry potter a bit on the TV, and woke up. I'm now excited to work on some of the other tasks, and hopefully I won't mess ups Adv. 2.

      I sort of attempted Advanced Task II last night. What I mean by sort of, is that it just came unexpectedly and it wasn't an actual face to face encounter with the ghost.

      It was a false awakening dream and I was just browsing my laptop as usual, then a random video footage came up with the female Onryo. It didn't seem scary at first because it looked like she was just talking like a normal person who's doing a video blog, until out of nowhere she screamed, which caused me to close my laptop lid immediately. I opened the lid back up to see if she was gone, she was staring at me with a creepy smile and then screamed again.

      I didn't know how to close down the video because I was kind of panicking a bit. It took me about 3 mins just to find the red x button to close the web browser.

      You gonna scare some kids with a sex change?

      edit: Finally posted it, got basic I early this morning!

      I opened my dream eyes, and was in bed again, and it was pretty dark. I thought about the basic I task all I needed to do was eat a piece of Halloween candy. I can do that right here in bed haha. So I slowly reached over and imagined a piece of candy would be right there on my nightstand. Of course as I'm reaching over, that old childhood fear of something under my bed grabbing me popped in my head. Sure enough, some small animal or creature jumped up and locked its jaws on the side of my hand. It kinda hurt, but not enough to stop me. I continued to reach for the table, with this thing dangling off my hand. I felt on the table and there was a little piece of candy wrapped in cellophane. Yay! I brought both the candy and the creature into bed with me, and just shook the creature off my hand and it vanished. It was a bit lighter now, and before the creature vanished, I could see that it looked a little like a deranged prairie dog lol. Anyway, I opened the candy and it was a tiny square of blue gum. I popped it in my mouth and chewed, and it tasted like blueberry!

      I decided maybe now the dream was stable enough that I could get out of bed, and I did easily. I managed to go out of the room and down the hall a bit. At some point I woke up, can't recall exactly. Fortunately, I DEILDed right back into the dream, back in my bed. So I decided to do the same thing (because if I could convince my subC that the candy was poisoned, I'd get advanced wings too!). I reached over, got the same little attacker, and shook it away again. This time the candy was a little red square of gum and tasted like cherries. I got up, went down the hall and into the bathroom. I wanted to see in the mirror if the gum was poisoned and what it would do to me. I'm telling you, I willed the SHIT out of that gum to be poisoned, but nothing happened. I stuck my tongue out and the gum had stained it green. I thought to myself "I guess in dream land, blue and red candy makes green!"
      Whole Dream.

      Some good tasks in here this month! Perhaps a self-lobotomy is in order.

      My first fail..

      10/02
      4:00pm I was dreaming in a nap and was in the parking lot of a store where I was going to get candy for the task when a lavender dragon raised up above the market scaring the crap out of everyone and even though I knew it was a dream I didn't make any advances (she was really big) and she gave us a message we were not to wish for things we could not have or borrow and a couple other weird sayings then the train woke me up.....
