      Task of the Month for January 2018



      Do you have a Task of the Month suggestion that you would love to get chosen?
      Now you have the chance to suggest new tasks of the month by clicking the
      Future Task of the Month Suggestion Thread.
      If you complete a current TOTM, you will be able to vote on suggestions for the next month!


      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.

      How to get your wings

      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: one basic or both, one advanced or both, bonus or how many tasks of the year. Please note, that we now have wings for every task. Requesting to join the group will upon approval also grant you access to Lucid Task Club.

      Of course you still need to post the pertinent part of the dream here and link to your DJ entry.
      Format of your post:
      [Basic, Advanced...] -[Name of the Task] - [success or fail] - [pertinent part of a dream] - [link to dj]
      For example:
      Basic - Drive a car - success

      When you post about another successful attempt, please tell me if it was your first or second task from basic or advanced tasks, or first, second... seventh task from the task of the year. I need to know this so I know which wings to give you. If you only say "completed TOTY - flying car" , this doesn't tell me which wings with how many stars should I give you.

      Please, make sure you post here your attempts both failures and successes, this will make this post much more dynamic.

      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 vote for submitted suggestions for the next month's tasks. Access to the Lucid Task Club will also grant you early access to the next month's tasks, giving you a 2-3 day window to keep your wings for the following month.

      Tasks for this month:

      Basic Task i - Ask a DC, "Whose dream is this?" (Verre)
      Basic Task ii - While looking in a mirror, make your hair or facial hair longer/shorter.* (Xanous)
      *NyxCC pointed out during the voting process that "Mirrors and Reflections" is the theme for the March 2018 edition of Robert Waggoner's LD magazine, "Lucid Dreaming Experience". So if you complete this task, you may also wish to submit your dream to be potentially published in Waggoner's March edition. Check the LDE website here for more details.

      Advanced Task i - Find a boring highrise, pick it up, and drop it on the architect's foot. (Jacob46719)
      Advanced Task ii - Concentrate energy in your palms, forming a ball, make it as tense as you can. (Nefets)

      BONUS TASK!! - Find an advanced laboratory and invent the most futuristic thing you can think of. (Oktek)

      JANUARY'S BEGINNER TASKS: (Anybody feel free to have fun with these, but you'll get wings only if you are a beginner. Some will change each month!)

      1. Slow down, look around, describe what you see.
      2. Touch the ground. What is it? Grass, asphalt?
      3. Look at your body. What are you wearing?
      4. Look at the skies. Are there clouds, stars?
      5. Inhale for as long as you can, then exhale as long as you can.
      6. Find text you can read, then look at it again. Has it changed?
      7. Stomp your feet into the ground. Does it feel normal? Does it give way?

      Well, uh, as written, for those who already have both those features (ie, me! ), Basic ii's gonna be either way too easy, or outright impossible.

      So, what should it be? Should such hairy folk go for even longer hair/beard, or should it be the opposite?

      Good point, although you could always go with full wizard's length beard, unless you already have a wizard's beard/are a wizard. Either way, I updated the task so you can try for longer or for shorter hair.

      I feel like I MIGHT be able to do these; Basic 1 and Advance 2 seem intuitive enough. Key word being "might''. I'm a terrible procrastinator.

      First Attack! I got Advanced ii this morning.

      Spoiler for Advanced Task ii - Concentrate energy in your palms, forming a ball, make it as tense as you can:
      ...

      Thinking quick, I decided on the energy ball TOTM. This was a painful process of focusing heat between my unseen hands. Blue sparks formed, which orbited around an unseen point. Such energy howled as I condensed it further, and soon illuminated the void and my form. Suddenly, the ball had somehow changed into a green triangle, spinning hypnotically.

      ...

      This energy, should it be dense or tense?

      Still waiting for my first proper lucid for the year - not a very good start considering the maginificent plans and resolutions...
