So I have 4 levels of combat ability: Non-Lucid | Lucid Level 1 | Lucid Level 2 (Limit Release 1) | & Lucid Level 3 (Limit Release 2)
In non-lucid dreams, I tend to follow the script. Even when I know it's a dream,
it's usually more fun to roleplay. In these cases, the most I'll use is flight, basic creation, or telekinesis.
Moving into a lucid state is more a matter of choice, limit releases though are difficult.
I only attempt them if the situation demands it. However, it can happen unconsciously due to
heightened emotions (which is usually how it happens).
I use flight pretty much every night, and since getting hurt has a chance of ejecting me
from the dream, I've become more of a ranged run-and-gun type girl.
I use a lot of firearms and Adaptive Magic, making it up as I go along.
As my lucid level increases, I uhh tend to get violent. Listen I'm not proud of it ok?
Thanks to my resurrection ability, my style shifts to a "kill first, ask questions later" kinda deal.
I'm just a character on their stage, and sometimes, when I'm off-script,
they'll force me to experience their intended dream (usually to learn a lesson).
The example I always go to is the time I was forced to drown in icy water
(the lesson was not to go out on frozen sea walls during the winter). Dream Instability
Sometimes I just can't stay asleep. Aside from grounding, I haven't found a sustainable solution to this. Focus & Fatigue
Especially applicable to flight, I need to concentrate for any sustained actions.
Lucid combat can be mentally exhausting. It's often intense, fast-paced, and unrelenting.
Over time, my ability tapers off and I have to get more and more inventive to
counteract the weariness. After particularly challenging fights, I often wake up
more tired than when I went to sleep.
"There Is No Spoon"
Essentially, if I don't believe it will happen, it won't. Flight & telekinesis are the only ones I can force.

My dreams can sometimes be indistinguishable from real life. Being forced into
life-or-death situations during them sucks. Killing and fighting feel different
when you think they're real (what I'm most worried about though
is that recently I've been getting used to it).
In these dreams, I often don't have pain negation.
Last February someone was strangling me, and without pain negation,
it hurt and I felt really panicked. Intense acute pain, say having an arm cut off,
can wake me up on rare occasions and leave me with phantom pain for a bit.
Because of this I acquired pain negation and enhanced self-resurrection to
help me stay in the dream, but they can't help if they're taken away.
As for Death, it's a weird experience. I'm not really sure how to describe it yet.
I know that last bit was dark, but usually, lucid dreaming is a ton of fun.
