      Ideas for Dark Tasks

      This thread is to determine which Dark Tasks will be chosen for each month.
      Do not suggest new ideas for tasks here. New ideas for Dark Tasks should be proposed in the original thread, here.
      If you like one or more these tasks of these tasks, say so in your post.
      Do not post spam in this thread.
      I will determine which four are the most popular, and they will be organized into a new thread every month, as in the regular tasks of the month.

      Credit goes to Captain Frapo for the idea of Dark Tasks, Delphinus who will be largely involved with the editing of this thread, and Shift for putting the first order to the whole thing. Also, there are others, who are too numerous to name.




      To or By Yourself:

      1. Kill yourself by conventional methods*, i.e. bullet to the brain, jumping from a high building, slit your own throat, etc.
      2. Allow yourself to be eaten, i.e. by a wolf, horde of locusts, cannibals, etc.
      3. Cut off your own emotions.
      4. Clone yourself and fight the clone.
      5. Eat your own body.
      6. Be a super villain.
      7. Test dark magic spells.
      8. Make a tornado and try to control it with your mind.
      9. Die and return as a zombie.



      Interaction with DCs:

      1. Killing a Dream Character in conventional* ways, i.e. cut him in half with sword, etc.
      2. Psychologically test a dream character with no ethical boundaries.
      3. Vivisect a living dream character.
      3. Possess a DC.
      4. Eat a DC's head.
      5. Amputate loads of DC's limbs and use them to create a mutant.
      6. Meet Hitler.
      7. Find five, new, inventive, ways to make DCs scream.
      8. Cut off someone elses emotions.
      9. Reconfigure someone else's mind, and use them in whatever way you want.
      10. Snipe or assassinate a political figure
      11. Allow someone to beat you up without fighting back
      12. Eat a baby
      13. Nail a baby to a dog.
      14. Punch a DC so hard that it changes gender
      15. Summon dark and malevolent creatures, and release them from your control as the dream creator.
      16. Go to war with God, and defeat him.
      17. Run at hyper speed and then give a DC a flying kick into the face, or balls.
      18. Eat a soul.
      19. Bring a corpse to life and have it create more "friends," if you know what I mean.
      20. Steal candy from children and eat it.
      21. Tie down a DC, and make him eat himself, in small pieces, starting with the toes, and make an amplifier so that when he screams, it bursts his own eardrums, and the blood running down his face makes him choke, while you are mincing up his best friend alive and force feeding it down his nostrils, and at the same time, you are smashing baby's skulls, and adding the mashed baby brains to the minced DC.
      22. Rip out a DC's heart.
      23. Rip out a DC's spine and use it to beat him to death.



      To the Earth/a major city:

      1. Destroy the planet.
      2. Make your personal Silent Hill.
      3. Invade a planet.
      4. Raise the level of the ocean.
      5. Call down a meteor.
      6. Become a huge monster and then destroy a city or fight another huge monster.
      7. Summon the legions of Hell and unleash them on the DC's.
      8. Dictate a worldwide nuclear war.
      9. Harness the power of lightning and wreak havoc in one of the world's major cities.
      10. Sabotage a nuclear power plant
      11. Use your own bare hands to rip down a famous land mark.
      12. Go into space, and then use your mind to fire the moon at the earth.
      13. Be a terrorist and bomb the country of your choice.
      14. Make all the patients in a hospital develop a flesh eating virus which kills them slowly, and horribly painfully.
      15. Spread a fatal disease around the world.
      16. Blow up a hospital.
      17. Become world dictator.
      18. Make it rain... fire.



      Traditional "Horror" Ideas:

      1. Survive an exorcism.
      2. Taste a witch’s brew.
      3. Fly on a broom.
      4. Dying and being revived by a witch doctor as a zombie.
      5. Exorcize the Exorcism girl.
      6. Sell your soul to the Devil, what will he give you for it?
      7. Raise a graveyard.
      8. Find a vampire and stake it.
      9. Become a vampire, turn a DC.
      10. Be the leader of a smart-zombie apocalypse.
      11. Creating the traditional Zombie Apocalypse.
      12. Visit your favorite horror movie.
      13. Focus on the darker side of shapeshifting (pain? grotesqueness? all the details you never bother with in a lighter dream. Also holds for regeneration of flesh, if a death fails.)
      14. Summon a demon, let it kill you.
      15. Become a nightmare.
      16. Be Death.



      General Ideas:

      1. Crash a car.
      2. Light a building on fire.
      3. Fight a giant Hollywood monster with your bare hands.
      4. Pit Godzilla and those ugly things from Cloverfield against each other.
      5. Go back in time with a modern/future weapon, and break things.
      6. Get the gravity hammer from Halo, and then smash the hell out of everything.



      Action Moviesque:

      1. Rob a Bank
      2. Take on the world with a gun of choice.
      3. Go on an epic police chase on a motorbike.
      4. Get in an extreme shooutout
      5. Have a one-on-one shootout, but whilst flying.





      Notes:
      1. By conventional, I mean things which are generally possible in real life.
      2. Remember, this thread is only for voting for these ideas. I will announce the details when four have been chosen.

      I'll go with: - Make a tornado and try to control it with your mind.
      - Get the gravity hammer from Halo, and then smash the hell out of everything.
      - Have a one-on-one shootout, but whilst flying.
      - Go on an epic police chase on a motorbike.

      Admitfully, all the one's I picked were the ones I suggested , but who wouldn't want to get the gravity hammer from halo? Anyone who's played halo will know what it's capable of, and i've got this vision in my head of me playing golf with cars - giving them a good smash and watching them fly into buildings.

      Edit: It might be easier to count which one is most popular if each one has a different number or number/letter combo.

      Well, I'll just say one in each category that I like the most:

      Yourself:
      4. Clone Yourself and Fight the Clone

      Interactions w/ DCs
      16. Go to war with God, and defeat him.

      To the Earth/a major city:
      6. Become a huge monster and then destroy a city or fight another huge monster.

      Traditional "Horror" Ideas:
      11. Creating the traditional Zombie Apocalypse.

      General Ideas:
      3. Fight a giant Hollywood monster with your bare hands.

      Action Moviesque:
      3. Go on an epic police chase on a motorbike.

      I also really like rob a bank. There should be a poll when you start to see which ones are the favorites.

      Is there meant to be a limit to how many tasks we can choose?

      Or are we just picking our favorites?

      If there's no limit, I need to edit :3

      There's no real limit, but try to keep it within reason.

      EDIT: I'll try to contact Ninja as to whether we can get the monthly four into the Task of the Month section.

      One question, Shift?
      Would you be able to make the GIFs for the tasks?

      I'm really not that creative, but I'll say yes now. Try to see if there's another person who can also do it, in case I suck too badly or in case I can't do it one month (the former seems most likely).

      Also, what if you just randomly sample, and have a poll for five or so choices to see which ones people want?
      You could ask people which their LEAST favorite is, and eliminate, rather than the other way around. Get rid of the ones people dislike the most?

      To or by yourself:
      9. Die and return as a zombie.

      Interaction with DCs:
      5. Amputate loads of DC's limbs and use them to create a mutant.
      13. Nail a baby to a dog. (Poor dog)
      19. Bring a corpse to life and have it create more "friends," if you know what I mean.

      To the Earth/a major city:
      8. Dictate a worldwide nuclear war.
      11. Use your own bare hands to rip down a famous land mark.
      12. Go into space, and then use your mind to fire the moon at the earth.

      Traditional "Horror" Ideas:
      4. Dying and being revived by a witch doctor as a zombie.
      5. Exorcize the Exorcism girl.
      9. Become a vampire, turn a DC.
      10. Be the leader of a smart-zombie apocalypse.

      General Ideas:
      4. Pit Godzilla and those ugly things from Cloverfield against each other.

      Action Moviesque:
      3. Go on an epic police chase on a motorbike.

      Note that I skipped the 2 ones about torture... unless you count illusions, in which case, done <.<
      Creating a new persistent realm, claiming it and breaking the last seal I made back in the beggining of my journey are my goals right now

      Ninja, they're not asking for this to be official.

      I'm all for it. More tasks, more motivation, more LDs.

      I love everything from the traditional "Horror" ideas, but the one I vote for is "Focus on the darker side of shapeshifting (pain? grotesqueness? all the details you never bother with in a lighter dream. Also holds for regeneration of flesh, if a death fails.)"

      I vote for:

      throw people into liquid nitrogen

      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      21. Tie down a DC, and make him eat himself, in small pieces, starting with the toes, and make an amplifier so that when he screams, it bursts his own eardrums, and the blood running down his face makes him choke, while you are mincing up his best friend alive and force feeding it down his nostrils, and at the same time, you are smashing baby's skulls, and adding the mashed baby brains to the minced DC.

      O__________________________O

      Too dark.

      I don't think ANYONE will be able to think of something like that or anything along those lines.

      I would be able to think of things like that. For example, you rip open a DCs chest and stuff their esophagus into their trachea, then force them to drink their own blood until they drown in it.

      My votes? Other than my own suggestions, here goes:
      1. Kill yourself by conventional methods, i.e. bullet to the brain, jumping from a high building, slit your own throat, etc.
      2. Allow yourself to be eaten, i.e. by a wolf, horde of locusts, cannibals, etc.
      9. Die and return as a zombie. (Is that mine? Mine was lich.)
      1. Killing a Dream Character in conventional* ways, i.e. cut him in half with sword, etc.
      3. Vivisect a living dream character.
      3. Posess a DC.
      5. Amputate loads of DC's limbs and use them to create a mutant.
      13. Nail a baby to a dog.
      17. Run at hyper speed and then give a DC a flying kick into the face, or balls.
      21. Tie down a DC, and make him eat himself, in small pieces, starting with the toes, and make an amplifier so that when he screams, it bursts his own eardrums, and the blood running down his face makes him choke, while you are mincing up his best friend alive and force feeding it down his nostrils, and at the same time, you are smashing baby's skulls, and adding the mashed baby brains to the minced DC.
      22. Rip out a DC's heart.
      23. Rip out a DC's spine and use it to beat him to death.
      4. Raise the level of the ocean.
      5. Call down a meteor.
      14. Make all the patients in a hospital develop a flesh eating virus which kills them slowly, and horribly painfully.
      15. Spread a fatal disease around the world. (That mine too? I can't tell when the phrasing is changed.)
      7. Raise a graveyard.
      13. Focus on the darker side of shapeshifting (pain? grotesqueness? all the details you never bother with in a lighter dream. Also holds for regeneration of flesh, if a death fails.)
      1. Crash a car.
      2. Light a building on fire.
      2. Take on the world with a gun of choice.
      4. Get in an extreme shooutout
      5. Have a one-on-one shootout, but whilst flying.

      Maybe a better idea would be to just choose a few of them randomly, say 6, and then from those random picks we would vote on which one we DIDN'T want (Like someone suggested earlier) I mean, it would surpass a lot of unnecessary voting, (You know, voting on what to vote for) especially if ideas are constantly being put into the pool.
