You feel pretty hungry, so you grab a handful of tall grass and chow down. It’s bitter and hard to chew, but a slime can eat anything with enough time.

The grass doesn’t satisfy you, but it takes the edge off at least. You decide to stop for now, hoping to find something more hearty later.

If so, say that they have a cool hat. What's the symbol on it mean?

>I would have thought you came from the hive, but I guess you slimes are all over these days.
Your hive is still A Thing? How long has it been since the incident? Get the date today.

Still a good idea to see a doctor to diagnose your condition before you deal with any issues back at the hive, with the power vacuum and all. As you are now, I don't think anyone would take you seriously, much less believe you're their (former) queen.

Hopefully, your subjects and/or the fragments of your majestic self won't get into too much trouble without you...

>on account of... well, you know
No you don't know. This amnesia thing is why you need to see a doctor, you know.
Ask if you could see him in a tavern later, after the doctor, to share news and a meal (that he'd have to be pay for, so be cute). There may be better sources of news, but they don't have that hat.

You enter the town. With the sun nearly set by now it's pretty dark. A few houses among the pines have lights on. Directly ahead of you is a large weathered statue of -

You’re not actually sure what it’s a statue of. Looks like some kind of giant. The head is shaped like some sort of insect, the pincers pointed skyward. Strange grooves cut across its form like circuitry, and a large round gem is floating in a cutout in the center of the head. Vines have crept over it from years of neglect, and one of its arms appears to have fallen off long ago. The other arm is holding the hilt of a very large sword which appears to be sunken into the stone platform the creature is resting on.

There’s a glowing yellow slime near the statue, looking up at the being. They don’t seem to have noticed you yet.

Those were the lucky ones. The others were consumed by the Void and left behind like this. The core in some still shines out, but gradually they’re starting to fade out. It’s only a matter of time, and then that’s it. No more titans. Void officially inherits the world, or what’s left of it.”

“Oh, n-no, not exactly,” he looks very uncomfortable, “I mean, like, they did break the planet and kill the titans, but uh, I mean, things actually haven’t been so bad.

No. 1005056 ID: 24ae03

The core seems all glowy and slime-good, while the flesh looks all stoney and icky. The latter can't be doing anything good for the former. Try to rip out the core and maybe give it some slime to act as a starter-body. You can spare a chunk out of your butt, right?

Is it just you or is the core looking at you? Tempting you to eat it, maybe? Touch it first. See what happens.

You could remove the mark off your nice hat, but as a disguise it's pretty handy. Either way, nobody's taken it off you yet.

Also, you still don't know why your fellow slime is glowy. Does he know why he's glowy? Either way, let him know you're going to the doc. Invite him to your party.
