      Lol, don't say I didn't warn you! MSPaint skills, ho! Just kidding. It's actually GIMP.

      Spoiler for Beacon and Globe, plus person icon for scale:

      Hm, how high were the cliffs? I'm guessing the blocky things around the beacon are the stone-carved buildings and such that you described in your dream? While the faraway buildings are the bay-side city?

      Even with these questions, there's already plenty of details here, so I'll start on something simple I think.

      I'd say sea level was roughly 300ft. below the cliffs. And yep, those blocky things are said buildings. There's also supposed to be a bunch of walkways, bridges, benches, statues, and stone gardens, but those kind of details are well beyond my grasp, lol! I really can't stress enough how the site is one broad, continuous, seemingly endless complex, of which encompasses even those megabuildings in the background. Said buildings were not part of some distant city, and unlike as they are (unintentionally) depicted above, weren't modern office towers; that was merely my initial assessment when I first saw their silhouettes in the background.

      Hopefully, any (totally not terrible!) future drawings from my part won't be as confusing!

      Okay, thanks for the clarifications! So, the tall buildings in the distance would be thematically related to the lower site around the beacon? I'll have to keep that in mind too.

      For now, this is what I made in about an hour as a quick thing about/around the beacon thing. Artistic license and all that, since, I'm not inside your head and all.

      Wow, that’s so cool! It really captures what was in my imagination as well. Your sketches were helpful too Relic. Can’t wait to finally visit this place!

      Got lucid last night, my goal to find the beacon but I forgot! Maybe next time.

      I'd like to do a different one that integrates both of your completed tasks in one thing, if I could find time to do it. Doing the art was a good way to get me really motivated/thinking about the lucid objectives before sleep... Except, of course, I couldn't think of which locations would be valid, and had poor sleep with little time to even recall dreams in the morning anyway.

      Nice about getting lucid again Tiktaalik.

      MoonageDaydream, I was wondering, is there a way that we might know what the outside of the base would look like or is this up to each dreamer? I guess I wondered if all the rooms are necessarily part of one building or not as I don't think this aspect regarding the exterior was mentioned in your original post. So, can they be loosely connected, i.e. via a garden space or something, so long as it leads to an existing (completed challenge) area?

      Great question.

      It can be one, under the "Your Ideas Here" section. I would call it "Outer Perimeter". Anyone is welcome to attempt this. If, you would rather attempt a different section, make sure to describe the outer perimeter if you do.

      Dark, I saw your drawing and was like "Holy shit!"

      I'm excited for this TOTY. I want to have a go at the training room. My dream guide and I can try to leave it in a good state for others to practice dream control in!

      TOTY 2022 - Task 17 - Training room - Success

      After an annoying 3 week dry spell I had a great lucid and found the training room!

      Spoiler for Task 17 - Training room - Success:


      I really wanted to re-create RelicWraiths vision of the exterior with the globe beacon but the dream just wasn’t playing ball. That said there were elements like the post which was clearly my minds attempt to re-create it. It was a cool location though and I saw it as an alternative version of the base. Perhaps that’s what we should expect going forward that the base will be influenced by each other’s dreams but will inevitably become our own unique version of it.

      Awesome! I've just managed my first LD in quite a while recently, didn't think about TOTM/Y though!

      I'm jealous of LDers who can converse (however randomly) with their DCs: mine just sort of look at me with big moony sad eyes and either utter gibberish phrases or simple one-word responses.
      "I'm allergic to ducks!" would be a huge improvement!

      I think we can expect that every dreamer will have their own interpretation of the base, otherwise it would become impossible to make progress on new rooms if the existing structures have to be "verified" first in the dream.

      Awesome, congrats. I find I have to drill my goal into my skull before bed to remember it.

      Most of the time I get blank looks and one word answers from my DCs so you’re not alone. It’s only occasionally I get a full sentence.

      I did make an attempt last night to find the base, but, only managed to find some random kitchen. And my mom was inside. I ate a blueberry muffin. Calling it a fail.

      I tried teleporting to my own room in the base in a lucid recently. I failed because I wasn't wearing my Robes of Anarak which is the only way I know how to teleport.

      I almost made it to the base last night. I saw a beautiful clearing above a cliff and I was flying straight for it.... unfortunately, didn't make it before waking up. Next time.

      I found myself in the Dream Views base spontaneously in a lucid today! I discovered the alter room where magick rituals can be done!
