      We need your help with suggestions for The Task Of The Year 2022

      With 2021 just around the corner. Actually, in few months until the next Year! We need your help with suggestions for the TOTY 2022.

      I know that people are busy with their personal lives but, if we somehow work together for what we truly want to see in "Tasks of the Year" tasks, then now is time to do so.

      Suggest 6-7 tasks, all of which share a common theme. You can choose whatever theme you desire, no need to follow the theme from other users, but keep your 6-7 tasks within a theme/topic.

      Each task should be a bit more involved than normal Tasks of the Month - they should each be a few steps/actions long, and demonstrate a strong awareness and control of the dream. For inspiration, you can check some of our previous TOTY's I recommend looking at some of the previous TOTY's.

      We're looking for something more like this. : https://www.dreamviews.com/tasks-mon...ar-2017-a.html

      I thought I would do this early so if people who want to put in their suggestions for great TOTY, they can and not miss out on the experience.

      Thinking out of the box here. I wonder if it could work having a set of tasks that we as a group could accomplish together? So instead of a set of tasks for each individual person to complete on their own, we work together to try accomplish a list of tasks with the aim to complete them all by the end of the year. So for example we could have the task: As a group, letís visit every country on earth in a lucid dream by the end of the year. Then itís up for grabs who wants to visit each country and gradually we tick them all off the list? Itís a step away from the traditional kind of tasks but it could be fun. Do you think TOTY could work this way?

      While it does sound like something I'd be more than willing to try, there are some concerns:

      1. Such an arrangement would require participants to sign up early. This wouldn't give much opportunities for any newer players to join at a later date.
      2. Even if there were arrangements to allow such, this would still prove a less flexible system than an opt-in system as we currently run.
      3. Speaking of flexibility, a year is quite some time. There would no doubt arise situations in which current participants would have trouble, if not zero capability, to continue the game. That's not even to say anything about motivation, a very fickle matter indeed.


      We'd need to seriously hash out such details, among others, and determine whether we'll, at the very least, not lose any enjoyability that the current rules may provide.

      Perhaps I didnít explain it quite right as I believe the opposite is true. I would imagine the tasks would be like a buffet. You can come at any time throughout the year and have a go at a task and try to complete it. We wouldnít need people to opt in and decide whose doing the tasks before hand. Also, I agree about motivation coming and going which is why I think a group effort may work well. Looking at this years tasks I believe the furthest anyone has got is task 4. With a team effort it means we can come and go as we please and the ďgameĒ continues even if you decide to take a break from it and pursue a TOTM or personal dream goal.

      The biggest problem I could see would be how we keep track of each tasks completion. I would imagine the admin would need to cross each off the list as the year progresses so any new players could keep track. It certainly will take thought and planning and Iím not sure if itís even possible for it to be done this way on the forum?

      I like the idea of a cooperative TOTY rather than competitive. I am a very competitive person but we already have TOTM for this. I always feel like I can't decide if I want to do TOTY or TOTM. So it would make sense to go the cooperative route, to make it different. Or at least to try it, for one year, as a unique experiment.
      The reason why I like to do tasks is mostly social for me - my social life is very limited at the moment and this allows me to practice LDing while at the same time to connect with other people and compare my experiences with them. For this, it doesn't matter much if the tasks are competitive or cooperative.
      On the other hand, I think that cooperative tasks would need to be more than just a list to tick items off. There would need to be some strong theme to it, maybe even something story-like, to connect the tasks and to give it more of the team-effort feeling.

      Here is some of the suggestion that we had last year. Please don't over analysis, We only have a few months left before we can vote for these theme tasks.

      Yeah, lucid dreaming can be quite a solitary subject at times which is why I enjoy the interaction and support you get with the tasks. Thatís why I think a team effort could work well.

      I agree, the tasks would have to have some kind of theme or story to them. For example, with the superhero tasks this year we could have had a scenario where a bunch of super villains have escaped prison and we need to each take one on in a lucid dream, using our own unique powers to defeat them and save the world! Or maybe weíre searching lucid dreams for the infinity stones, each one having its own set of obstacles to overcome to attain it. Maybe at the end with all the stones we then unlock a final task for us all to beat the big bad guy and itís up for grabs who can do it first. I certainly think it could work and would be lots of fun.

      That said, I know weíre limited on time and I donít know how it would work technically from a forum/ admin point of view? Maybe trialling it with a TOTM sometime instead would make sense?

      Iíve enjoyed Moonagedaydreams story driven tasks this year. I havenít got far into them sadly (need to up my game!) but I think the structure worked well. Iíd be happy to do any of these other tasks you suggested last year on this thread:

      https://www.dreamviews.com/tasks-mon...task-year.html

      My favourites are:

      -Wonders of the world
      -School of magic
      -Time Hero

      I also like Occipitalredís:
      -School of dreamcraft.

      I actually have an idea for the cooperative version, if we ever decide to go that route, and it would only work as that, otherwise it would be too many tasks.
      Spoiler for over analysis:


      For the standard format, I think that many suggestions from the previous year are really good.
      I will think about it too but I would be perfectly happy with one of them.

      Well, we could always look at some of the LD Competitions from yesterday on how to organize and manage such a system. Although competitive by design (it's in the name!), they also included co-operative facts by virtue of being team-based events. As for tracking things, Spellbee2, as an example host, used a system of excel sheets. If nothing else, the proposed TOTY wouldn't have scoring anywhere near as granular as the other contests, so it should be pretty easy to keep a checklist/tally board running somewhere.

      Ah cool! Never thought about using this section. Perhaps we should move the co-op talk over there and discuss some ideas.

      Iím working on a couple of regular TOTY ideas in the meantime as well which Iíll post this week. : )

      Great!! that said, LET's Keep things on topic. Any other discussion about whether or not the Task The Month and The Task Of The Year is appropriate please post your questions or concerns in the Talk with the staff.
      Any other deliberate interruption of a thread will result in a warning.

      Thanks for understanding

      LUCID TRAVELLING

      Summary: Take a back packing trip in your lucid dreams and enjoy a range of activities. For each task you must first identify what country/ city youíre in and work with it. If you happen to find yourself in your home town or country donít worry, you can try teleport to a new location or just pretend youíre somewhere new and hopefully the dream will accommodate. Have fun and see what countries you find yourself in.

      Task 1: Go sight seeing
      Look around and explore the city/ location youíre in. View the sights, if you donít know where they are ask for directions. See if you can locate at least one main attraction. It could be a statue, building or a natural wonder.

      Task 2: Try the food
      Find a restaurant, cafe, market or eat at someoneís house. Try the local cuisine and sample any food of your choosing. What does it smell, look and taste like?

      Task 3: Speak with the locals
      Walk around and get to know the locals. Talk to a street entertainer, a native tribe or just a man on his way to work. See if you can figure out their language, ask for a tour and engage in a conversation.

      Task 4: Visit a Museum.
      Locate and wander around a museum or an art gallery. Look at the paintings, the statues and artefacts. Whatís there?

      Task 5: Take a scenic journey
      Board a plane or helicopter, or maybe a speed boat or jet ski. Why not an elephant or a horse? Explore and take in the beauty of the destination.

      Task 6: Do an exciting activity
      Find an adventure activity to participate in. Are you near the sea? Maybe scuba diving. In a city? Maybe bungee jump from the tallest building. A mountain? Try paragliding!

      Task 7: Go to a festival
      Last task, time to celebrate. Head to a local festival or party. Maybe itís a concert, a religious ceremony, a carnival or New year celebration. Have fun and go wild!

      Here is my first attempt so far a theme. Working on another one too.

      This is still a work in progress. May edit and change things in the future. Feel free to make suggestions.


      Task of the Year Suggestion: The Knights Radiant

      (This theme is based off of the book series The Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson. However, none of these tasks require the participant to have read any of the books, although they are amazing and I highly recommend them. Also, there have been minor adaptations.)

      Background:
      Every person has inside them the potential for greatness. It is through our inner search, through our discovery of our core, our soul.. often at the price of extreme trauma and turmoil.. that we find this greatness. Those of us who have.. we are known as… The Knights Radiant.

      Task 1: Find your Spren.

      Not many people know about the Spren, but, some do. They lurk everywhere, mostly unseen. Some people think they’ve seen a leprechaun, a ghost, or a fairy. But really? It’s just a Spren. What’s a Spren? They are spirits of nature. Beings of pure energy. Not quite in our physical world, but not quite out of it, either.
      All Radiants have a Spren that is bonded to them. The Spren are attracted to specific traits, often virtuous, that the person exemplifies. Some examples include Honor, Unity, Honesty, Creation, Order, Universal Love, Respect, etc.
      The Spren’s bond to its Human gives the Radiant his or her powers.

      The task:
      Go into the dream world. Find your Spren. Bond with it [you may do this any way your dream sees fit]. Ask what kind of Spren it is, and its core virtue. Ask it why it chose you. What does it see in you? What is its name?
      Group Effort: Ask your Spren for a helpful message you can give to one DreamViews’ member: how can they find their Spren?

      Task 2: Find your Solace.
      *Note: this task not based on the books*
      Every Radiant has a place of peace they go to deep within their minds. It is a place of healing, a sanctuary, a safe haven. Usually found in nature, although it can be otherwise, every Radiants’ Solace is unique to themselves. Perhaps yours is an oceanic island. Perhaps it is a forest clearing with a clear blue-green spring. Perhaps it is a library full of people, a network of crystal-filled caves, or a mushroom forest on a strange alien world.

      The task: In the dream world, ask the dream to take you to your Solace / Safe Haven / Santuary. Explore the location, and describe the experience. Then, when ready, sit, relax, and meditate in your True Home.
      Group Effort: Ask for a helpful message you can give to one DreamViews’ member to help them find their Solace.

      Task 3: Say the Words.
      All Knight Radiants have to say a specific set of Words to become one of their Order. However, each order has a different set of Words associated with it. These Words do not come from a book. They do not come from another person, either. They come from within. They are personal.

      The task: Return to your Solace place in your dream (see previous task). Note: It is allowable to be different from the previous task, so long as it is also a place of deep peace for you. When there, announce your Words to the dream. The Words needs to come from within. They may be a deep Truth for you, a pearl of Wisdom that you embody, or an Oath that you will keep. They centered around your virtue, and when you think of these words, you are filled with a feeling of purpose. When finished, ask the dream if your words have been accepted. If so, congratulations, you are well on you way to becoming a Knight Radiant.
      Group Effort: Ask for a message to give to one other DV member on how to find their Words.

      Task 4: Summon your Shardblade.
      Every Radiant has a Shardblade. They are our bonded Spren, manifested into weapon form. They are highly magical. They are capable of slicing through rock and severing souls; to be used with the utmost care and discernment.

      The task:
      While in your place of peace (may be different from before), summon your Shardblade. How you do this is up to you. When summoned, describe your blade. What kind of weapon is it? What is it made of? What does it look like? Is it imbued with an element (ice, fire, etc.)? Then, practice with it (without harming innocent others). How does it feel?
      Group Effort: Ask for a message to give to one other DV member on how to find their Shardblade.

      Task 5: Find your Order.
      Every Radiant belongs to an orders within the Organization. Each order has unique abilities associated with it, and often relates to our core virtues. There are 10 standard orders (from the Books), however, perhaps you may find yourself belonging to a different order (dream-given) – this is also acceptable.

      The 10 Standard Orders:
      1. Windrunners (“I will protect”)
      2. Skybreakers (“I will seek justice”)
      3. Dustbringers (“I will seek self-mastery”)
      4. Edgedancer (“I will remember those less fortunate”)
      5. Truthwatcher (“I will seek truth”)
      6. Lightweaver (“I will speak my truth”)
      7. Elsecaller (“I will reach my potential”)
      8. Willshaper (“I will seek freedom”)
      9. Stoneward (“I will be there when I’m needed”)
      10. Bondsmith (“I will unite”)

      The task: In the dream, find your place of Solace. When there, ask the dream to tell you which Order you belong to. It may be one of the 10 standard ones, or a dream-given Order not in the books. Either way, once you find the name of your order, ask about it. What else can you find out about your Order? What are they known for? What abilities do they have?
      Group Effort: Ask for a message to give to one other DV member on how to find their Order.

      Task 6: The Knights Radiant

      You are now ready to meet your fellow Knights. Surprise! They are other DreamViews' members.

      The task: Head to the "Dreamviews' Embassy" (see post here). It can be different from what is described. So long as it is a meeting place with other DV members, it is valid. Seek out other DV members. Converse with them. What kind of Radiant are they? What are their virtues, orders, shardblades like? Describe the experience.

      Congratulations, you are … a Knight Radiant!


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


      Optional Task 7: Explore Your Surgebinding Skills.

      *Would prefer this to not be required for wings* Decided to make this optional since it is a bit similar to the Superhero task from this year, Discovering Your Powers. Also, it's more for people who might already know the books well.

      Once your given your Order, you may know at least one power associated with it, known as Surgebinding. Here are some standard surges (from the books). However, you may have a different, dream-given, surge from your order – this is acceptable.

      The standard powers, and the Orders that use them:
      1. Gravitation (manipulation of gravity) Skybreakers, Windrunners
      2. Adhesion (manipulation of air pressure + vacuum) Windrunners, Bondsmiths
      3. Division (manipulation of destruction and decay) Skybreakers, Dustbringers
      4. Abrasion (manipulation of friction/lack there of) Dustbringers, Edgedancers
      5. Progression (manipulation of growth, healing) Edgedancers, Truthwatchers
      6. Illumination (manipulation of light, sound, illusions) Truthwatchers, Lightweavers
      7. Transformation (able to turn one object into another) Lightweavers, Elsecallers
      8. Cohesion (manipulation of the state of matter of objects) Willshapers, Stonewards
      9. Tension (???) Stonewards, Bondsmiths
      10. Transportation (manipulation of motion and transition) Elsecallers, Willshapers

      The task: Find out your surges based on your Order. Each Radiant has 2 surges. If you have a dream-given order, you may need to find your unique surge (simply ask the dream). Then, in the dream, practice your two surges. Explore the uses of their powers.
      Group Effort: Ask for a message to give to one other DV member on how to find their Surges.

      Because this is a separate theme and I don't want any confusion, I am going to go ahead and make a separate post. I apologize for the double post, and I hope that is okay?

      Task of the Year Suggestion: The Dreamviews Embassy

      With a lack of an ability to have our own Dreamviews’ convention or other gathering, I figure, why not meet and make merry in a lucid dreaming convention? Let's make a Home Base for our lucid dreaming operations.

      I want to give credit for this idea to OccipitalRed as it's really just another take on their idea from last year, as well as their Embassy group idea (post here).

      Task 1: Find the Embassy.

      In the dream, seek out the Dreamviews’ Embassy. It can be any place, so long as other DV members (real or otherwise) are there. Walk around and explore the grounds.Describe what it looks like. Describe any other members you see there. Anyone you recognize from the forums? Find your room. How you know it’s your room is up to you. You could ask someone, or even just “claim” an empty one. Then, once in, decorate it with things of meaning for you.

      Task 2: Visit the Art Gallery.

      Return to the Embassy. It’s OK if it looks different from last time, so long as the general feel is the same and DV members are present (real or otherwise). Once inside, find the Art Gallery. Explore dream-related art. Say hi to mosa199a and/or DarkestDarkness while they work on their art.

      Task 3: Visit the Library.

      Return to the Embassy. It’s OK if it looks different from last time, so long as the general feel is the same and DV members are present (real or otherwise). Once inside, find the library. Explore the books, tablets, scrolls, papers, etc. that you find. Visit Moon and the Book Club while there, and say hi.

      Task 4: Attend a Lecture.

      Return to the Embassy. It’s OK if it looks different from last time, so long as the general feel is the same and DV members are present (real or otherwise). Once inside, find the lecture hall. Find Sageous and listen to his lecture. Learn some fundamentals!

      Task 5: Meditate in the Garden.

      Return to the Embassy. It’s OK if it looks different from last time, so long as the general feel is the same and DV members are present (real or otherwise). Once inside, find the garden. Find Sivason and meditate with him and any others learning dream yoga techniques.

      Task 6: Training Room.

      Return to the Embassy. It’s OK if it looks different from last time, so long as the general feel is the same and DV members are present (real or otherwise). Once inside, find the training room. Find Humble and those training on the Tasks of the Month. Participate with them. Note: The tasks to do not have to have anything to do with the actual Tasks of the Month.

      Task 7: Feast with Friends.

      Return to the Embassy. It’s OK if it looks different from last time, so long as the general feel is the same and DV members are present (real or otherwise). Once inside, find feast hall. Enjoy a meal (you may have to summon it) with others. Then, have a fun party (music, dancing, joking, drinking are all options).

      Note: If you do not know the named members in the tasks, I recommend that you use expectation and/or summoning techniques to bring said person to the dream. They do not have to look like anything specific. Confirm their identity, then describe what the dream gives you.

      Playing around with a new structure for themes.

      Task of the Year Suggestion: Build our Dream Base

      For this theme, it will be structured a little differently. Members may complete any of the possible tasks below, earning wings for each one up to 7. Each time a task is completed by a member, that particular task is locked out (exception: your personal room). No one else may complete that task, however, you may complete other tasks not finished yet. If all tasks have been completed, members may still earn their wings by completing tasks with their own ideas for base pieces.

      Let’s work together to build our dream base. Below are 20 different task options. Each one is a “dream base piece”. For each task, the goal is the same: Create and explore the selected base piece. Make sure it is attached to the rest of the base already completed (if any). Describe with as much detail as you can your contribution to the base so that other members may have a good idea of what the base currently looks like. You may either create it directly, OR, you may let the dream create it and simply explore the new addition to our base.

      *Note: These do not have to be completed in order*

      1. Build the surroundings (what biome are we located in?)
      2. Kitchen
      3. Main hall
      4. Your personal room *May be completed by every member, regardless if it has already been completed by another member*
      5. Bathrooms / Bath hall
      6. Lecture hall
      7. Library
      8. Courtyard
      9. Garden
      10. Art gallery
      11. Swimming pool
      12. Game room
      13. Attic
      14. Basement
      15. Dining Hall
      16. Sitting room
      17. Training room
      18. Lake
      19. Dance hall
      20. Stairwell
      21. Upstairs hallway
      22. Storage room
      23. Patio / deck
      24. Balcony
      25. Meditation room
      26. Your ideas here, you may do something different of your own design. No same idea may be repeated.

      Re-posting this from last year, with modifications. Experience is the best teacher

      -----------------------------------------------------------------
      Task of the Year Suggestion: Lucid Dreaming School of Magic


      Welcome to the Lucid Dreaming School of Magic! Do you have what it takes to become a master lucid dreaming wizard? Master the six schools of magic, then, in a showcase of supreme power, combine aspects of all to defeat a mighty enemy!

      Task 1: School of Magic - Illusion
      Welcome to Illusion Class! In this class, you will learn how to deceive friend and foe alike with a flick of your wrist! In order to pass this class… you must take this test:

      -Cast "Disguise" to look like someone else, then fool the others around you into believing your new persona. Then, cast "Invisibility", allowing yourself to go unseen by others. Lastly, cast "Mirage" to disorient people nearby, so that they see a totally new reality.


      Task 2: School of Magic - Restoration
      Welcome to School of Restoration! Mend the very bones of your brethren and stop the forces of evil with the pure intent of your heart! Only the purest souls need apply. Are you up for the challenge?

      -First, you will find an injured person and heal them by "Laying on Hands", OR if they are already dead, cast "Resurrection". Then, create a "Force Field" of pure divine energy. Finally, make your way into the heart of the danger, and cast "Exorcism" to rid the enemy of their evil heart!


      Task 3: School of Magic – Conjuration
      The world is your oyster… or at least it is if you are a conjurer! Welcome to the school of Conjuration. Bring every wish into fulfillment with the snap of your fingers! Overtake your enemies with your necromantic army! Take this test to prove your worth!

      -First, you will bring the dead back to life with a "Summon Zombie" or "Summon Skeleton" spell. With your new friends, go and defeat your enemies in battle! Tip the odds in your favor as you Summon an entire "Necromantic Army" (or at least a group of creatures!).


      Task 4: School of Magic – Alteration
      What is form but another illusion? With this knowledge, you can master the arts of the School of Alteration! Travel the world in any way you desire. Become anything and anyone! Change the very fabric of reality with the power of your knowledge!

      -Who needs doors? Walk through the walls as you "Phase" yourself into another location. Then. "Shape-Shift" yourself into a winged creature, and fly. Then, master of hardest of all… "Teleport" yourself to the top of a nearby mountain! This must be a true teleportation spell – no phasing, flying, or using guides! One point to the next, that's it!


      Task 5: School of Magic – Destruction
      Welcome to the School of Destruction Magic. Destroy your enemies with the power of pure arcane energy! Channel your rage in the form of the natural elements! Ice, fire, air, and earth at your fingertips! Take the test…

      -Cast "Ice Spikes" to show your mastery over the element of ice. Then, channel "Lightning" from the skies! Hurl a massive "Fireball" at a building and watch it burn! Lastly, split the Earth asunder with an "Earthquake" that rips through your foes!


      Task 6: School of Magic – Psionics
      Those with true power don’t need to do anything to show it! They use the School of Psionics! Bend the world to your will with your mind! Control the very thoughts of your enemies! Take true control as you possess them! Can you master the art..

      -First, you must send objects flying around the room with only your mind, with a "Telekinesis" spell. Then, converse with your dream companions using "Telepathy", and note their responses. Practice "Mind Control" on your fellow dreamers, having them do what you want.


      Task 7: Full Spectrum Wizard
      Congratulations. If you have made it this far, you are truly a master wizard. However… can you pass the final test? Do you have what it takes to be the Sorcerer Supreme?

      -To pass the final test, you will use your spells (any) to fight an ancient enemy, which could be a Balrog, Dragon, Giant, or Leviathan, or similar creature of legend.. Once completed, you must ask and receive your reward.. And at long last … you will be… the Ultimate Lucid Dreaming Wizard!!!

      Create your own TOTY:

      Task 1:
      Summon your dream guide and ask them what your TOTY should be about this year. Find a clear answer and path to follow then find out what Task 2 entails.

      Tasks 2-6:

      Complete the task that you were set in the previous task and find out what the next task is. To do this you may ask the dream, a DC or find some kind of clue.

      Task 7:
      Complete Task 7 and bring closure to the the set of tasks as a whole in what ever way seems right.

      I know this is sort of cheating and a bit basic as a concept but it could be interesting and fun to see all the unique and wonderful rabbit holes our dreams lead us down. :-)
