      Lucid Dreaming D20

      In the world of fiction, dreaming is a very tricky thing to explain. Especially lucid dreaming. So many misconceptions, subjective perspectives, and flat-out myths. Now, the most brilliant, and by that I mean sexually depraved and nerdy, minds of DV will come together to make...Lucid Dreaming D20! A d20 rpg that is all about lucid dreaming and stuff. Go on quests and whatnot in your dreams and level up and do whatever rpgers do!

      Since it's d20, I'm going to be borrowing a very large amount of info from the original Modern D20 reference guide. Begin discussing while I regularly post with updates.

      This has a slight slight resemblance to the DV Bar thread from long long ago haha.

      (Okay so far I've managed to get a "Lucid Dreaming" Skill going, but I'll be working on more soon. Tell me what you think.)

      Lucid Dreaming (Wisdom)

      Check: The character can perform reality checks to attain lucidity, ground their lucidity once they have obtained it, and can generate FX abilities and alter their vital statistics within that dream.

      Reality Check- With a successful Lucid Dreaming check (DC 5), the character can determine whether or not they are in true reality or in a dream. If the character is in a dream, they will become lucid, therefore allowing them to have access to other "Lucid Dreaming" skill checks.

      Ground Lucidity- With a successful Lucid Dreaming check (DC 10), the character can stabilize their dream rather than be forced to make Reality Check checks every 15 minutes.

      Generate FX Ability- With a successful Lucid Dreaming check (DC 10 + FX Ability Level), the character can generate an FX Ability of the appropriate level within a dream without consuming energy of any kind.

      Alter Vital Statistics- With a successful Lucid Dreaming check (DC 10 + Total Amount of Stats Altered), a character may alter their Vital Statistics, including Ability Scores, Saves, Attack and Defense Bonuses, Hit Points, etc. (excluding Class Levels) for the remainder of the dream or until they lose lucidity or perform a forced "Reality Check" check.

      Try Again?: Yes, but for every attempt to redo a failed Lucid Dreaming check, the DC is increased by 2.

      Special: If a character attains lucidity while in a dream and does not stabilize their dream with a Ground Lucidity check, they are forced to make a Lucid Dreaming check (DC 15) every 15 minutes within a dream. Success means they remain lucid, while a failure results in a loss of lucidity.

      A character cannot take 10 or take 20 while performing a Lucid Dreaming check within a dream. However a character can take 10 while performing a Lucid Dreaming check outside of a dream, but cannot take 20.

      Time: Reality Check- 1 round

      Ground Lucidity- 1 + 1d4 Rounds

      Generate FX Ability- 1 round, unless otherwise noted in the FX Ability description.

      Alter Vital Statistics- 1 round

      This thread is for anyone willing to put info in here pertaining to LDing in the world of D20. Other people can just come in here and give suggestions, put their own ideas, and offer criticism/advice. This thread should just be a sandbox for people who are interested in D20 w/ Lucid Dreaming.

      Oh, btw, I might come out with feats soon, so keep your eyes open for them.

      EDIT: Also, for people who need info to help out...here's a great wiki-esque site for DND and D20. DNDWIKI

      And on with the feats:

      Adept Dreaming

      Benefit: The character gets a +4 bonus on all Lucid Dream checks.


      Dream Control Mastery

      The character has found more effective ways to alter the content of their dreams, making them more skilled at dream control.

      Prerequisite: Lucid Dream 4 ranks

      Benefit: The character may also add their Charisma modifier to any Lucid Dreaming checks.

      Normal: Without this feat, characters may only add their Wisdom modifier to Lucid Dreaming checks as well as other miscellaneous modifiers.


      Dream Learning

      The character has used their dreaming experiences to aid them in learning new skills and reinforcing old skills.

      Prerequisite: Character level 8th+, Ranks in the Lucid Dreaming skill

      Benefit: The character may now add their Wisdom modifier each time they reach a new character level to determine how many skill points they will have. For all other purposes these skill points should be treated as regular skill points.

      Normal: Without this feat, characters must learn skills by combining their Intelligence modifier to the respect class modifier for each level they gain in that class.
