You decide you could use a giant hat, and take it from the sleeping guard. He doesn’t seem to notice.

Now you have a Giant Guard Hat. It’s big enough for you to fit your entire body in, but it’s also a pretty conspicuous object. In the right environment it could certainly be of some use. Like as a stepstool or somethin’.

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.

“What’s this a statue of?”

The slime jumps in surprise. “OH! oh hi, I didn’t know you were there,” it eyes your hat nervously, “I’m not causing any trouble, I was just, I’m, goodnight,” and it begins to scoot away.

“I’m new to this area. What can you tell me about the statue?”

“Oh," it perks up, "this isn’t a statue. Or, well, it WASN’T a statue. When the earth was whole it was protected by these mighty slime titans. They stood against any who would seek to upset the balance of nature.

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.”

Something stirs in you, maybe anger, maybe guilt.. perhaps once you see the doctor you’ll be able to remember more and process your emotions properly.

“So, the Void are pretty bad then, yeah?”

“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. I guess, the worst thing about it is that it’s harder to get around because the world is broken, but like, everyone else seems pretty cool with them.

Laugh mischievously and tell your glowy new friend this, then climb the statue and poke the core.

And put that hat on top of the statue. It's the perfect crime.

Assure the poor slime that you're only wearing the hat because its a nice hat, not because you're a guard.

No. 1005053 ID: 2aa5f0

ask what the void guard is. Then when he questions you about the hat tell him that you found it on the ground outside of town and thought it looked neat and decided to wear it. You would have asked the guard outside of town about it be you didn't want to wake him as you felt that would be rude.

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?

Short term: Make friends with as many slimes as we can, make an army of friends and family.

Longer term: Find your slime dragon fragments. Hunt them down. Make them part of us once more.

Very long term: Awaken the slime titans and have our VENGEANCE! MAKE THE VOID RETRURN FROM WHENCE IT CAME! MAKE THE VOID KING SUFFER FOR EVERY ATTOSECOND WE WEREN'T WHOLE!!!

No. 1005071 ID: c09f5e

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.

Touch the core only when no one is looking.

“Rad,” you say, and begin climbing up the titan.

The core is a vibrant, softly pulsing red. You can almost hear, or rather feel, a low hum coming from it.

You reach out to grab it.

You wake up on the dirt, the statue looming over you. Your hat is a short distance away, like it rolled off when you hit the ground.

“What did you see?” the slime hangs over you, looking concerned.

“I saw the Void crawling all over my body, digging into it. That was horrible!”

“Yeah, those were the last moments of this titan. I don’t want to think about what any of the others went through…”

You had vaguely considered trying to eat the core, but if touching it threw you on the ground, maybe eating it would also be a poor choice.

Which reminds you..

“Cool, thank you! And one last thing,” you point at the impaled core floating inside you, “I got hurt bad, and the guard said there was a doctor I could see, do you know where they are?”

“They’re near the edge, across from the gondola. If you don’t mind waiting til morning, I can show you? It’s not really a great idea to wander around at night, unless you’re a guard or have a sword, or somethin’.”

old name is fine.

Also can't help but wonder if the Titian is actually dead and it's core is just filled with it's last moments or if it's still alive and trapped in place. Oh well nothing we can really do about it. Go get some food and then you can see the doctor in the morning... Also uh, what do they use for money around here because I'm pretty sure you don't have any.

/hits accept without looking at name entry

We leave now and there's a chance the guards might not let us back in the morning, if only because of the hat. OTOH, we secure a homebase (or just a rest couch) and potential allies if we go with him.
Just ditch the hat when you leave, where the guard was posted. He'll take the blame for "reporting it stolen after losing it".

What's his hive like? Are they accepting new members?

Explain that you used to be a Grand Slime and you had your own hive. But then some jerk came and stabbed your core and left you severely weakened. You don’t know how long you were gone, but it must’ve been a really long time, since your hive had disappeared when you finally woke up.
