      With 2023 just around the corner. Actually, in weeks until the next Year! We need your help with suggestions for the TOTY 2023.

      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.

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

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

      The deadline will Dec 28 2022. 8:00pm.

      ~LANG.

      And you guys got this!!

      OK, this is just an idea that others could build on. It might need additional work to make it fit for a Task of the Year.

      I really liked the shared aspect of the Dream Base task, and I was thinking another team oriented thing would be fun. How about this?

      Theme: Mystery at the Mansion

      The idea is that we have another shared setting like the Dream Base thing. This time, it's a classic mystery of the Sherlock Holmes or Agatha Christie type - set in a big old mansion in the English countryside or some other classic setting. There can be several mysteries going on at once, and as detectives it's our job to investigate. So the tasks would be something like this:

      (1) Find the Mansion.

      (2) Meet or summon the owner of the mansion, and/or the head staff (butler or housekeeper).

      (3) Meet other suspects, who have reasonable-sounding excuses for being there...in other words, you can't just have your old boss or high school teacher pop up out of character for the theme. They should be a guest or staff or something (or at least claim that they are).

      (4) Find out what the mystery is. Like I said, it could be different for each person, or you could work on trying to solve a mystery that someone else uncovered.

      (5) Interview the suspects (DC's) and/or search the house for clues.

      (6) Discover and explore the secret passages

      (7) Solve the mystery (with some definite solution such as someone confessing, discovering the answer to the big secret, finding the lost family treasure, etc.)

      ^Haha!
      We probably need the:
      -Who. Who was the perpetrator.
      -When/where it took place.
      -How did they did it?
      -What or Why: is the motive to what they did what they did.
      -Feel what is like to do this kind of stuff.
      -Pay attaction the settle clues/ Relationship with the victims (Families/ Friends) Weird behaviors/ Weird habits/ traits that a normal -person may not pick up on? What is off with the DC? Weird pattens.

      ----
      You would probably using Detetive work to regain awareness, (before you can do the tasks anyways) it's going to be a little tough.

      There is more, I don't want to make it too hard.

      ------

      For those who posted their ideas last year, you can post them again here.

      Iíll put forward my two ideas from last year again. Think they could be good fun.


      CREATE YOUR OWN TOTY:

      Summary: Instead of the traditional set of pre-prepared tasks this is all about discovery. The tasks are deliberately vague to allow the dreaming mind to fill in the gaps with its own creativity, randomness and wisdom. The idea to create a set of personalised tasks that are unique to each dreamer. This could be anything, a search for a lost artefact or person, confronting a nightmare or shadow figure, going on a journey of self discovery or just having fun and saving the world from an evil villain. The possibilities are endless, the important part is that it has a clear plot/ theme across the tasks and that theyíre not decided by the dreamer but by the dream itself.

      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 for the duration of the tasks. Then find out what Task 2 entails.

      Tasks 2-6:

      Complete the task that you were set in the previous task. This can be achieved by any means but must have a satisfactory conclusion. After, find out what the next task is. To do this you may ask your guide again, the dream, a DC or find some kind of clue. If you fail to do both parts in 1 dream then thatís fine and you donít have to start all over again but both parts must be done to mark the task as complete.

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


      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 or world youíre in (both real and fictional) and work with it. If you happen to find yourself in your home town or country, you can try teleport to a new location or just pretend youíre somewhere new and hopefully the dream will accommodate. Have fun, explore and see where you end up.

      Task 1: Go sight seeing
      Look around and explore the 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, whatís the history?

      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!

      Theme: Mystery at the Mansion

      The idea is that we have another shared setting like the Dream Base thing. This time, it's a classic mystery of the Sherlock Holmes or Agatha Christie type - set in a big old mansion in the English countryside or some other classic setting. There can be several mysteries going on at once, and as detectives it's our job to investigate.
      I like this idea and could see it working. I think the issue is pinning it down to a specific location. This was one of the issues with the dream base. I spent more time trying to get back to the base than I did exploring it. I would instead broaden the scope and say a murder has happened within the dream world, which in this case we all have access too. Then it doesnít matter where we find ourselves we can still look for clues and suspects to investigate. Tasks could be:

      -Find the victim and investigate the scene
      -Talk to eye witnesses
      -Interview a police suspect
      -Find the murder weapon
      -Talk to the victims family.
      Etc.

      The conclusion would be capturing the murderer. It would be quite fun discussing the mystery on the forum and in doing so influencing each others dreams and the plot.

      Yeah, as if the dream world is a shared place everyone goes on a night, or something along those lines. I suppose ItĎs not really that much of an issue, itís just a way of explaining the Continuity issues we would encounter and giving us an excuse not to spend precious time looking for specific places. You want to go ďoh, Iím dreaming! What was my goal? Oh yes, interview a suspect! Hmm, that guy looks suspicious, letís interview himĒ.

      I like that idea.

      I have been pretty busy with Christmas and a conference that I had to prepare for and attend. Any updates on the TOTY?
