      Task of the Year 2018

      The Challenge:
      This year's theme is fictional tales from historical literature. You'll be taking part in each of the stories, and hopefully adding some extra dream-based plot development as well. Plus, you'll receive the coveted rainbow wings if you manage to complete them all in 2018. Good luck!


      The Rules:
      - You must complete each task in a separate lucid dream; you can't do more than one in the same dream.
      - DEILD and L-DEILD are only permitted for a single ToTY (meaning, only one ToTY per chain of dreams.) You must record your dream in your preferred dream journal (you do not need to come here) before you can work on another ToTY.
      - You may do more than one Task per night, as long as the previous dream task is already recorded.


      And here are the tasks!
      The Sorcerer's Apprentice - A old poem that was popularised by the Disney Movie Fantasia. One night, a young apprentice takes his master's magickal hat without permission and uses its powers to animate a broom that will do his chores. But the untrained apprentice loses control over the hat's power and things go horribly awry before the master returns and sets things right. Find the sorcerer's magick hat and make any inanimate object perform your chores.

      Faust - This story is about a jaded, world-weary intellectual named Faust. Seeking a more exciting lifestyle, Faust sold his soul to the devil's agent, Mephistopheles, in exchange for unlimited knowledge and frivolous pleasures.
      - Play the role of Faust - sell your soul to Mephistopheles for the thing you desire most, then get dragged into the underworld.
      or
      - Play the role of Mephistopheles - grant a DC what he or she desires most, and then take their soul.

      Moonfleet - A popular British children's book about treasure and smugglers. The story begins with a young boy named John Trenchard seeking out a diamond said to be stolen by the late pirate Blackbeard, whose ghost is said to wander about the lands. John eventually learns that Blackbeard's diamond is hidden deep within a well of Carisbrooke Castle. Go to Carisbrooke Castle, recover the diamond, and give it to Blackbeard's ghost. Describe his reaction.

      The Lady with the Lantern - Over the coast of Sourthern England, an ill-starred ship struck a rock at night. Among the rescued survivors was a young lady and a child. During the rescue, however, the child fell from her arms and was lost at sea. Overcome with grief, the woman died shortly after. It is said that from her grave, the woman's ghost wanders about at night, carrying a lantern, searching for her child. Find the woman's child and reunite them. Describe their reactions.

      Jack the Giant Killer - Not to be confused with Jack and the Beanstalk. In medival times, there was a brutish giant that would terrorise villages, feeding off the crops and cattle. Eventually, a young man named Jack went to the giant's den whilst he was asleep, lured him out with a horn, and struck the giant atop the head with a pickaxe, killing him instantly. As reward for killing the giant, the villagers gave Jack many gifts, one of which was a beautiful sword. Take Jack's place in the story, dispose of the giant by any means, then recieve a reward from the villagers. Specify said reward.

      The Boggart - In a house in Yorkshire, a mischievous spirit called a Boggart took residence and began to terrorise the family living in the house with with all kinds of cruel pranks. The Boggart's mischief had become so harrowing that eventually the family decided to leave the house and move elsewhere. Take part in this story and get back at the Boggart with your own special prank.

      The Fairy Thieves - One day, a man in Hampshire was dismayed to find that his barn had been mysteriously robbed. Everything was a mess, despite the door being locked. After another robbery, the man resolved to catch the culprit, and within his barn hid himself under a pile of straw. Come night time, tiny fairies flew into the barn through the keyhole and began to steal the farmer's crops. In a fit of anger, the farmer burst from his hiding place, yowling at the fairies. Frightened, the fairies fled the barn and never disturbed it again. Play the role of the farmer and catch one of the fairies it in a bottle.


      Good luck:

      Sivason and I were discussing that the Faust task may be a little bit concerning for some individuals, and as such we have added a new, slightly tamer option for fulfilling the task. Either option is acceptable, but completing both still only counts as one task.

      I was actually just reading that and thinking about how I wouldn't be able to do the first one, nice to see the edit. I'll have to decide if I want to do these. They are all pretty interesting.
      I will be on hiatus again, if you have any questions, then read these threads and PM me after.
