      Objective Of The Competition

      Explore your dreams and in the process of that, explore yourself! Discover who you are. The points run the same as the last competition. There is a fighting chance for non-lucid dreams, just so they can have some fun too but their standard tasks are capped at 1.0 and advanced at 2.0 (except for the reality check which will only apply for successful lucids), that way, performances by lucid dreamers aren't threatened and if you keep the lucids going, you'll win anyway. But remember, with me, it's all about the fun and improving the general quality of your dreams, including recall. As I have more experience, there will also be some specific team tasks which will have a set high number for lucid dreams and will be capped at 5.0 for non-lucid dreams.



      Non-lucid only aspects:
      - Recall a full non-lucid dream (1.0)

      - Recall a non-lucid fragment (0.5)

      - Recall any non-lucid dream over 3 consecutive nights - Can't skip a night or the chain will be broken (an additional 3.0)

      - Recall any non-lucid dream over 5 consecutive nights - Can't skip a night or the chain will be broken (an additional 5.0)

      - Recall any non-lucid dream over 7 consecutive nights - Can't skip a night or the chain will be broken (an additional 7.0)
      NOTE: Once you have completed the 7 night chain, you will have to start your chain again. So the 7 chain would be an expected maximum of 4 times.

      Lucid only aspects:
      - Recall your first lucid dream of the night (10.0)

      - Was introduced via DILD (an additional 5.0)

      - Was introduced via WILD (an additional 5.0)

      - Was introduced via WBTB (an additional 2.0)

      - Subsequent lucid dreams: all methods (5.0)

      - Recall a lucid dream over 3 consecutive nights - Can't skip a night or the chain will be broken (an additional 9.0)

      - Recall a lucid dream over 5 consecutive nights - Can't skip a night or the chain will be broken (an additional 12.0)

      - Recall a lucid dream over 7 consecutive nights - Can't skip a night or the chain will be broken (an additional 15.0)
      NOTE: Once you have completed the 7 night chain, you will have to start your chain again. So the 7 chain would be an expected maximum of 4 times.

      Help With Points
      Example Scenario:

      ___Non-Lucid
      The sky was grey, a bird was swooping down viciously towards me. I thought he was going to peck my eyes out. I cried "Help! I'm not invincible!". My dream guide appeared and acted as a barrier between me and the bird. The bird hit her but nothing of hers was affected, she was indeed invincible. She then took me to the city and pointed to a homeless man sitting in front of the book store, I decided to give him $10. After that, I met Lisa in the cafe, who is my DV comp team member in real life. Just as another DV team member Grace was walking in, the dream ended.

      Full NL dream = 1.0
      Summon DG = 1.0
      Help someone in need = 1.0
      Meet a team-mate = 1.0 for Lisa, 0.5 for Grace = 1.5
      TOTAL POINTS = 4.5

      ___Lucid
      The sky was grey, a bird was coming down towards me in slow motion. "I'm dead", I thought until I looked down at my fingers and noticed six of them. "Hang on... it's a dream!", I said to myself. I had control now, I breathed the element of Earth which repelled the bird away in the opposite direction. The dream then took me to the city. I could explore but I knew there was more potential, so I summoned my dream guide to ask her what I should do. She appeared and pointed to a homeless man sitting in-front of the book store, I decided to give him $10. After that, I met Lisa in the cafe, who is my DV comp team member in real life. Just as another DV team member Grace was walking in, the dream ended.

      First lucid of the night = 10.0
      DILD method = 5.0
      Breathe an element = 6.0
      Summon a dream guide = 10.0
      Help someone in need = 4.0
      Meet a team-mate (Lisa) = 7.0
      Additional team-mate (Grace) = 3.0
      TOTAL POINTS = 45.0

      Once you are in the competition, please specify your personal goals.

      I was on the ocean riding a sea lion and the scene changed to me riding piggyback on a young lady through a mall, at which point I became lucid. I asked her if she wanted to make out but she said she didn't have time. I kissed her a couple of times and let her go. I tried to summon another young lady but summoned a young man.

      DILD - 5 points

      DJ Link



      Also....I hope I didn't do it wrong....my one dream I remember was non lucid except for the very end....so I counted that as a non-lucid fragment and a DILD lucid dream. Also there seemed to be two things that said for a personal goal and one was worth 10 points and the other was worth 15 points...


      Personal Goals:
      -Fly
      -Freeze the World
      -Teleport
      -Reverse gravity
      -Stop and think about actually BEING in a lucid dream--purpose is to use this to increase lucidity and dream control

      competition total-21 points

      dream-I was in the kitchen of my dad's house during breakfast. I gathered an assortment of little breakfast appetizers that were available to eat. I was concerned about getting to school on time. I woke up in a bedroom and looked at a clock that was in front of me. Then I woke up for real.

      Spoiler for dreams:
      NLD-I was on a golf course, playing golf. I was on a fairway trying to hit a shot into a green. People starting crowding around me. I had to shoo some people away so I wouldn't hit them with the club during my swing. They refused to move, so I continued doing this until the dream ended.

      LD-I was walking down a street and entered some sort of industrial workplace, where I became lucid. I summoned a lady and asked her if she wanted to make out. She said no. I asked her if she wanted to hug. She said okay. We hugged until the dream ended.

      Morning of 12-8:
      1 NL = +1 => 9 (total)

      Spoiler for dream:
      Long, vivid nonlucid with DCs from several points in my past. Starts at a convention center where I get coffee with a few of them, end up moving to a campus where I skateboard really unstably (sensations [movement, wind, gravity, those crunchy vibrations you get through your feet when the skateboard wheels roll over pebbly concrete] were very intense) down a hill after going to one of their dorms. Later end up at a competitor to my WL employer with a coworker, we're sneaking around although we don't have bad intentions, end up getting caught and one of our phones starts playing an embarassing video.

      Been short on sleep lately. Will have lots of sleep tonight and tomorrow morning, so I have a good feeling I'll get lucid then. Congrats on everyone's lucids so far!

      NLD-I was on a practice area of a golf course. I was called up to the first tee, where there was a group of golfers that were waiting to play and the manager that tells which groups to go out and when. I was told by the manager I could go out on the course ahead of the group waiting, but to be sure that I called out for help if I needed it.

      LD-I woke up and could hear some music coming from an alarm clock. I tried to sink into the bed as an RC and it worked. I decided to fly up and away from the house. I lowered myself towards the ground and tried to transform into a dolphin but couldn't.

      Deck The Halls December Competition - Night 4 & 5

      Spoiler for Not much. All but one were fragments:

      In a hotel at night. I take a shower, but realize too late that I left my towel elsewhere.

      Fragment involving the Flash and a woman that brings bad luck.

      Watching nephew play a Donald Duck platformer game, which then warped into an off-brand Super Mario game.

      Full dream. A woman chases around and violently abuses some guy that she just met. I command shadows to forn an orb around her and trap her. Cut. I'm flying over a city. I wake up before I realized it.

      Watching an altered version of Lean on Me. The ending was a lot more tragic for the protagonists.

      In a communal yard between apartment buildings. Mom was there. Mosquitos were rampant.


      Dream Fragments (6) - 3 points
      Non-LD - 1 point

      Command DC/Object (Command Shadows) (Non-LD) - 1 point
      Flight (Non-LD) - 1 point

      Spoiler for :
      Still no lucids for this competition...actually it's the longest I've gone without a lucid for a while now. But after reflecting on it, it's not really getting me down. I started reading over my past lucids and realized that I was kind of taking them for granted -- these are amazing experiences that most people don't have after all. So for now I'm focusing on appreciating the dreams I have every night, and getting ready for my next lucid.

      Spoiler for dreams:
      fragment-I saw my grandpa in his bedroom watching poker on tv while resting in bed.

      LD-I noticed an unusual amount of green color behind my eyelids, so I tried to enter a dream by making the color more intense. I turned the color white, before it dissolved into white specks against a black background, as if they were stars in space. However, a voice said these white specks were actually bubbles. Realizing I was underwater, I tried to transform into a dolphin. I could feel a dolphin body. When I tried to see my body, I saw that the body I was feeling and moving was in third-person perspective. I tried to get the image of my body back into first-person perspective, but woke up.

      Spoiler for dreams:

      12-12
      Dream #1: Fridge: long dream in a supermarket/mall area, yellow lighting, I'm in a meeting/convention room with several others. I leave to go to a stainless steel fridge's freezer on the underneath levels. I see in the back some frozen bags of peas, bell peppers, and onions from the Farmer's Market that my parents used to have; I also see a small mostly frozen bottle of Jack Daniel's (I thought in the dream, "I don't think they make them that small" and also "that shouldn't be frozen" but didn't get lucid). I remember the feeling of the dream and that it went on for a good while before and after, but this is the main segment I can pull up to the surface at the moment. Highly influenced by the movie we watched last night (Wicker Park).
      Dream #2: Bathroom: yellow lighting, small square tiles on floor, beige stall doors that have no room to close, don't want to touch the locks on the doors, unsure if women or men's room, both are coming in, conversation with other bathroomgoer.
      Dream #3: Troll Nightmare: in a large house ascending the levels, it's open like a bungalow I guess? It's daylight/blue lighting. Reminds me a bit of the garage sale house at F.L., but a teensy bit more millionaire mansion-ish. I'm accompanied by someone (homeowner?) when out of the corner of my eye on a lower level I see a black (not as in brown skin, actual grey/black) troll thing. At first it looks cute, has huge ears and a huge face, kind of shaped like a chinese dragon or where the wild things are kind of face. But I'm still sort of avoiding letting it see me or my companion, and I think the dream picks up on this. The creature gets a little taller and is now carrying a very cool and dangerous looking spear and is running angrily up the structure towards us. We flee and I wake up.
      Lost a dream here that I remembered earlier in the night.
      Fragment #1: 9 backyard: walking along the fence?
      Fragment #2: 9 living room: my sister is videotaping, we finish the main event and reenter the room and she says "watch out, it's still recording!"
      Dream #4: Suicidal dad writing his suicide note on his shirt and tie with a felt tip pen. My mom is absent or dead? It's Christmas or another vague holiday and he was cooking some canned carrots on the stovetop. He let them burn. I grab the tie and slap him in the face with it, smudging it, and tell him he needs to snap out of it, etc. He just starts writing it on his face and arms now. We struggle and eventually I leave and let him do his thing. We both return to the living room and walk past the camera on the tripod. My sister runs in angrily and says "It's still recording!"


      Good news, the troll and his spear may have been successful dream incubation (albeit on a small scale)! I've been focusing on incubating small elements or themes of dreams instead of entire scenes. Last night before bed, I didn't do any MILD or other induction techniques, just thought and focused on the idea of "fantasy elements", i.e. creatures, settings, armor, weapons, etc. and visualized/meditated on this for a while before bed. I only think this was incubation because as an adult, I rarely ever dream of fantasy elements, it's usually very plain jane with boring WL scenarios. Will try this again for the next few days to see if it works.

      Follow-up: does anyone know any good, in-depth methods/tutorials/guides for dream incubation? It seems like the one thing that doesn't have a solid guide on this site or others, or at least doesn't seem like a structured thing in the same way as induction techniques or dream control methods. Thanks!
