They know why they're searching for those gems, or whatever?

Could you - or someone you know - teach someone else void magic?

Are all voidkin black, or do they ever come in other colors?

Ask the voidkin if they're single. Or if they know any single void guys. Asking for a friend.

Ask the voidkin where everyone's getting those super cool scarves. You want to be cool and popular and fit in, because PEER PRESSURE.

“Oh, sure, go for it,” they say down to you. They’re easily three or four times your height, absolutely towering over you. Small dark droplets slowly drip upwards, vanishing in the air when they get too far away.

“What exactly are you looking for?” you ask, “One of your guys said something about a gem, or parts of a gem?”

They pause for a moment, their large eye staring straight through you, before responding, “Yeah, I remember us telling you that. Not much else to say about it. Void King wants the parts of some kind of weird gem. Has been looking high and low for it. ‘Could be anywhere’, they said,” the voidkin shrugs, “So we’re out looking for it. Don’t know why, other than Void King wants it.”

“Can you do magic? Can you teach me magic?”

“You’re…. not… quite void,” they seem to study you harder, as tho noticing you for the the first time, “Not…. yet… but soon, maybe.” Another pause, and then suddenly they lean forward, stabilizing themselves on all fours. Several soft voices echo out of them, all speaking in unison, “We wonder… Will you march in lockstep, or find your own rhythm?”

They blink. It’s really weird to see that giant eye move.

“How about this,” they say suddenly standing upright again, speaking in their original voice, “So, we found some weird mushrooms, strange stuff, different from the glowing ones you all eat. Uh, some of our kin got kinda messed up by it. It’s a whole thing. We’re taking care of them in the tent, don’t worry, but uh, there are a couple of us that are still missing. You’re not like obligated to assist us in anyway,” they pull out a small bottle filled with a strange dark-glowing fluid inside, “But if you DO happen to find them down there, and they’re messed up, can you give this to them and point them back to the surface? Do that, and we’ll write down some void runes for you to get started on.”
>>
No. 1014708 ID: 629f2e

That seems totally reasonable, and even if you aren't sure how to feel about these guys yet you probably don't want 'em being messed up. Agree to take the bottle and help any you meet.
>>
No. 1014709 ID: c92a02

What if their idea of 'messed up' is actually a good thing though? Like partially un-corrupted by void because it wore off, or something. Take potion and sniff it.

Hmm, having multiple bodies like that could be pretty fun; could go out with a new one every day to keep things fresh hehe

Anyway, the bottle. Lips suddenly feel very dry~

Accept the request and ask what's in the bottle.

We should also try to avoid those mushrooms. Since we’ve got that void sword fused to our core, interacting with those mushrooms might also mess with us!

Agree to help them.

“Sure, we’ll keep an eye out for them,” you say as you accept the bottle, “What is this stuff?”

“Medicine. Flushes invasive entities from the body and reestablishes a connection to the Void King. Hopefully you won’t have to use it at all.”

“What are you doing stop it,” they say as you uncork the bottle and sniff at the contents, “You’re not infected, please don’t use it on yourself.”
It smells … sweet and spicy, like some kind of pepper candy. You pop the cork back in.

The voidkin leaves you be as the two of you steel yourselves in the mouth of the mines. The lanterns hung inside provide a dim light that fades quickly into darkness the deeper you look.

Nothing to it but to do it. If your core is in there, you won’t find it standing in the door. You step forward and enter the Old Crystal Mines of the Lesser Hyther Orbital Edge Town.

It gets dark very quickly. You follow the lanterns down the tunnel, slowly descending until you pass them. Humphrey’s body gives off a soft light, bright enough to see where you’re going. Even so, it begins to feel oppressively dark as the lights from the surface grow dim behind you. There are old carts, picks and shovels, piles of rock and other minerals. Here and there you catch the glint of small crystals growing out of the walls.

You continue following the tracks as they open out into a larger cavern, and eventually come to a sharp drop. The tracks hang just over the edge. It’s too dark to see how deep it is from where you stand. There are a couple of tunnels branching off from this room, a cool breeze gently wafting through one of them. More piles of mining junk litter the place.
>>
No. 1015497 ID: 96c896

How well can you climb? If you jumped down there could you climb back up? Also could you survive the fall?

Maybe we should go down a tunnel first though. Acquire shovel.
>>
No. 1015500 ID: ce39da

That track used to lead somewhere, but trying to reach where it starts back up would be folly without a better light source.

Equip yourself with a shovel or pickax or something, then head down... I'd say the tunnel with the breeze. If it cuts back up to the surface, that's one path explored. Do we need to keep a mental map, by the way?
>>
No. 1015505 ID: 279c23

Do you have anything to mark the paths you have taken? It can be pretty easy to get lost in a mine if you don’t know where you’re going.

Anyways I see two passages behind you, might as well see if they will lead you down.
>>
No. 1015508 ID: 53560f

Wow, that looks like a humongous health and safety violation. Good thing you aren’t a safety inspector.
Follow the breeze and make sure shout out to see if anyone can hear you every now and then.
>>
No. 1015512 ID: ab862d

Wait, why is Humphrey coming with us? It never said that it was going to help or follow us forever... sus~

Check the non-breezy tunnel first because it's probably a dead end. Get that completionist achievement.

You grab a shovel from one of the piles. It’s an average sized shovel, but still bigger than you. Holding it makes you feel a little better equipped to handle a scary dark cave.

(You put the Shovel in your inventory.
“A sturdy old tool. A little unwieldy for your size, but it’s better than nothing.”)

Humphrey looks mildly distraught seeing you eat crystals off the ground, but now you know that you can make crystals glow. You grab a few for the road.

(You put some Crystals in your inventory.
“Tastes like stale bitter salt. Not much of a meal, but they glow when broken.”)

“Let’s go this way,” you say to Humphrey, pointing down the breezy tunnel. You crack a crystal by the entrance, and the two of you head down that way. Daylight seems to be ahead, and sure enough you turn the corner to an interesting sight.

The cave continues down, but the wall on the left is completely gone. You can see clouds and sky outside of the dirt and rock around you. Across the way there’s another island, it’s side a little rough, but strangely clean for a break. It sits a little lower than you, but is too far away to jump down to. You can see tunnels and caves exposed to the air on its side, as well as some crystals that must have grown out from the wall since the break. It looks like there used to be wooden bridges connecting the two halves, but those have since broken and now simply hang down the sides of the island.

“That’s the other half of the mines,” pipes up Humphrey, “The voidkin said they haven’t been over there yet, probably because it’s not easy to get over there.”

The tunnel continues back into the island. Looks like it keeps going down.
>>
No. 1015920 ID: ab862d

I don't suppose you could extend yourself to reach the end of the wooden bridge on our half, could you? If not, then go back to the other tunnel branch.
>>
No. 1015921 ID: ce39da

Note the hole above you, but proceed down that tunnel for now - we still have voidlings to find.
>>
No. 1015927 ID: 96c896

Continue down this path until we reach the end. The missing voidkin are most likely deep in the mines, so there's no point backtracking just yet.
>>
No. 1015982 ID: 3e0315

Attempt to construct a crude trebuchet from the remnants of the bridge above you, then leave it behind as an artwork to commemorate your glorious presence at this place.
