    Teleport Practice - Spring Competition Night 2

    by , 03-04-2023 at 02:26 AM (321 Views)
    I decided to include other notes from the night and also some bits of my PR lore this time. For the lucid, see the red part.

    Lights off - a little bit before 4 am
    Falling asleep - quickly, a little bit after 4 am

    Awakenings and recall
    7:02 - several fragments
    some awake time because of the cat
    9:13 - 1 fragment
    10:39 - 1 long chunk of the dream (almost getting lucid) and 1 shorter fragment
    a little bit of WBTB time
    11:54 - 1 fragment
    12:35 - 1 fragment (again almost getting lucid)
    13:45 - final waking - quite a lot of non-lucid content but very chaotic, three dream plots mixing together, then getting lucid

    Lucid (DILD)
    Chaotic non-lucid. Slowly getting semi-lucid (understanding that I have powers and wanting to practice them). I also believed I had investiture from Brandon Sanderson's Cosmere. I was running, feeling the energy, and then I decided to practice teleporting.
    During my first attempt, my mum was talking to me and I had to start again.
    I was standing in a kind of portico of a house or a garden gazebo with several steps leading down. I decided to use Welsh for a spell phrase - "Llwybr allan", meaning a path out. Obviously lucid at that point, I remembered Mzzkc's dream control advice from the day before and added the emotion of how it should feel to teleport away and stopped overthinking the schematic part, I simply stepped through with the intention of a movement somewhere else (nothing specific, just a significantly different location).
    I closed my eyes to make it easier and walked the steps down. I could actually feel something like a shaky barrier.
    When I opened my eyes, I was standing on a street in a city looking like Prague*. The portal behind me changed to a solid wooden door of a townhouse.
    There was a tram stop, so I tried to find out where I was. The sign was "Pencil Square". I was thinking about how to get back to my friends and wanted to check the tram timetables but then I decided to try the teleport again, thinking that it could "remember" the way back.
    I went to the door but two people approached me, a man and a woman, looking aggressive. They wanted me to go with them, acting like a sort of dream police. I hesitated and the woman pulled out a knife, telling me: "If you want to resist, I have this." I wanted to say that I can resist that too and was trying to think of some good dream control idea. Unfortunately, I woke up.

    *If I stick with my PR lore, this was Dream Prague, a place where I staged most of my efforts against the Dark Lord (persistent evil DC, but he isn't limited to the Dream Prague realm, he is a traveler, or a realm-hopper, as most powerful DCs are).
    But if I want to see it that way, who were the two people who tried to arrest me and what is going on there? I haven't been there for quite a long time and was doing different goals, mostly ignoring the Dark Lord. But I was told in a different dream that he plans something.

      First of all, I'm jealous of your sick points total from this night. Second of all, I love Brandon Sanderson! Good to know there is another fan on here!! Have you read the Brandon's Dark One series? Maybe your Dark Lord is related! Also, what does PR stand for? Doubting it is public relations lore. Also also, I love the idea of using Midjourney to generate dream art...might start doing this myself. I love the book-chapter-art looking style you've gotten with it.

      I haven't but I'll look into it.
      I think my Dark Lord is mostly inspired by the Faceless Man from the Peter Grant/Rivers of London series by Ben Aaronovitch. He isn't a high fantasy evil overlord, he is an urban fantasy-style villain, looking like a middle-aged charismatic businessman.

      PR is a persistent realm. Although mine is a very imperfect and loose type of PR, and it can take place in both lucids and non-lucids. I work with the concept that all my dreams happen in the PR, which is a dream world multiverse. And I pick what I want to see more of or develop into a continuous story and I do quite o lot of incubation for it. Art is a part of that too, I originally wanted to draw my persistent/recurring places and characters and I sometimes do but I often use AI too.

      In Midjourney, I like to do drawing-like illustrations and concept art that look like pen line art colored with markers or watercolors because I use these media when I draw. And I sometimes use AI for references. I am also doing a worldbuilding project with it because I enjoy generating and drawing imaginary architecture and places. My idea behind it is something like urban sketching but from a non-existing fantasy world. I'll probably incubate something of it into my dreams eventually too.

      One of my goals is to have a dream palace that is persistent. Sort of like a lucid dreaming home base. I guess that qualifies as a PR. Thanks for the info! I'll check out Ben Aaronovitch.
