"Gosh..." you feel at a loss for words. You didn't expect Cali would actually have an answer for you, and now you feel a bit overwhelmed by their story. "I'm sorry that happened to you. I guess we've both got a lot of questions for the Vodiking whenever we finally meet him, huh."

"I'm gonna kick his ass until he explains himself, and I Mean That," Mirrow says quietly. Cali snorts with laughter, and the mood somehow feels a bit lighter the rest of the ride.
No. 1070729 ID: 5fd272

So, Voidkin describe their purpose so often as a "song," and the crystal smith said before that the three of you were Cali's "king," so to speak. Does Cali hear a song from you three (well, two at the moment)? What does it sound like?

Mirrow has the right idea, better get nemo back to avoid violence

Mirrow: Plan your epic combo. Maybe a slide kick into an uppercut and cornerlock with Godrender until max meter then hit him with the ol' Mushroom Soup
Humphrey: Take a snoozypoo
Nemo: Be dead
Mystery Piece: ???

Sounds like the voidking didn't want to fight in the first place. Think they were forced or tricked into going to war?
No. 1070751 ID: 7695ec

I wonder if the Trickster is the one behind the war, and VK rebeled, that note of hurt and kill seems rather familiar, with this being what the known Trickster influenced Red-eye void of present, and what the memories of that one Titan had, a darkness with red stars, spooky stuff!

Hold up, can we get a "Mean while" moment? Nothing serious or anything. I just feel like, it'd be good to see something else happen in the Slime Quest world for one small bit, related or not to the current slime quest.

One hot minute. Nemo was Voidking's waifu / focus of his affection, and he feels super bad about stabbing his GF, but had to for some contrived reason so people think Nemo is dead where in reality she's still alive. As a means to protect her....by stabbing her....damn love is something strong amerite?

Rain pours heavily around you as you hike through the trees. The thin pine branches do little to shelter you from the downpour. Your clothes are soaked through to the skin. You're miserable, cold, hungry, and lost. The waystone you used got damaged and sent you so far off course that you have no idea now where you are now. You're starting to wonder if running away was really a good idea after all.

You see a plume of smoke over a line of trees and can just make out the warm light of what seems to be a small building. Your hopes rise as you approach, desiring nothing more than to be inside where it's safe and dry. You can't be certain, but you feel like something has been following you for some time. You shiver at the thought of being jumped by wild void and dragged away to die in the rain. If you had to die in a fight you at least hope you could be dry.

You open the door to a small inn and step inside. There's a fire lit inside, a few tables and chairs, a bar counter, and some stairs that lead up. It feels a little small, but it's not crowded at least, with only a handful of patrons and the innkeeper inside.

Before you do anything, you try to quickly think up a cover story just in case anyone asks about you.

Who are you? And what are you going to do next?
No. 1071454 ID: c290f0

If anyone needs a name keep it simple, lets go with "Bea".
You were trying to get to the next town over looking for a job but got a little lost; rain didn't help your cheap map much. You just need some guidance and a place to dry your soaked bones for a spell.
No. 1071458 ID: e754f9

You're looking for a friend who is in another town because they had a cool rock to show you. Yes. That is a good lie.
But what is the truth...?
No. 1071459 ID: 7b65e9

You need food, new clothes, anything valuable that could be traded.
Survival first, everything else second.

Not a suggestion HOLY FUCK look at that fucking nerd to the left lol what a point dexter
No. 1071461 ID: 8ab08b

You're name Is Soaking Wet Stephen, and you are Soaking Wet. Ask the barkeeper where in sam hell you are. Dry yourself off and get a room for the night.
No. 1071462 ID: 14b8a5

Somethin simple like "Sam" maybe

As for a backstory? Maybe they're trying to learn more about themself and had to leave home in order to get a new environment for some introspection. These folks seem nice enough, but you can't be too safe, keep as much information as you can to yourself until you're sure they're not gonna turn you in or anything
No. 1071463 ID: 9c66d2

Best keep it simple. You’re Sam or Alex or whatever and you were on your way to visit a friend when you got horribly, horribly lost in the storm. You need directions, a chance to dry off, and maybe a bite to eat.
No. 1071464 ID: d344dc

Watch who you calling poindexter. ;3
As for a suggestion, we need a simple name and a simple request, as this is an inn, perhaps they can accommodate with a private room for the time.
No. 1071485 ID: cd48aa

I like this name.

And obviously what you should do next is something incredibly silly.

You're an adventure from a little farm outta some place not really important. You got tired of doing nothing and decided "hey! I want to adventure!" well here you are!

Sam Bea is a more generic name. Hopefully that will allow you to blend more into your surroundings.

As for backstory? Share little. You're on your way to a town you're not going to for personal business.

Now scan the cilentele, shiftey eyes like. Become aware of all of the danger in the room. Act as Eastwood-like as you can.

You approach the counter. The innkeeper looks up from her sweeping. "Oh goodness, you're a bit of a mess aren't you? How'd you get caught out on an awful night like this?

"Bit of a long story, I won't bore you with the details," you say evasively, "I was just doing some uhh, spiritual reflection, and I got a bit turned around. You know how it is haha." That's true enough to make for a convincing lie.

She seems surprised when you mention getting lost. "Hon, it's a miracle you managed to find your way here. Don't you know how dangerous it is to stray from the lights out here?"

"Oh, No? Is it?"

"You're in the heart of Froasting, hon. No better place to get lost or lose yourself than here in the trees. Lucky of you to stumble on my little inn!" She chuckles with an air of relief and pulls out a small notebook from her apron. "Not meaning to pressure you, but you probably want a nice warm room to dry off in, miss uhhh.....? Is it Miss?"

"Miss Sam," you say, "And that would be wonderful." You try to subtly glance around the room. The folks in here don't seem very dangerous, probably just passing through on their own business. You kick yourself for not realizing it sooner. Of course you're in Froasting. It's one of those places He told you about. The dense forestry and dark tangle of plants are home to all manner of vicious creatures. The wild void especially favor the darkness of the trees. An old crystal-lit path winds through Froasting, connecting the Grand Station to Yawn, providing a modicum of safety to travelers, but those who stray from the safety of the light are rarely seen again.

"Alright, I've got something upstairs for you, Miss Sam," the Innkeeper says as she pockets her notebook. "Don't worry about paying it up right now, I'll collect it before you leave. Just go on up and rest. If you leave your wet things in the basket outside the door I'll get them nice and dry for you in the morning."

You sit mostly undressed on the bed in your tiny room, your belongings all laid out to dry. It's not much, a small embroidered purse with some money, a knife, your thread kit, and the broken waystone that got you here. On the table is a small meal the innkeeper brought up to you, just a quick soup she whipped up and some bread.

If the Oracle were here she would probably say some nonsense about how the Goddess' Will protected you. And if He were here He would probably scold you for being so reckless. But they're not here.

You're definitely all alone. Even tho Crestal Sea Spire and the Oracle are geographically close to you (if you recall the maps He drilled into your head correctly) they're not directly connected, and as far as you know there's no way for anyone to trace you here. You're safe. You're alone.

So alone. Tears drip down your cheeks. You used to believe that the Goddess was alive, that her warmth and her will embraced you always. Hours ago you were excited to finally come of age and take on the mantle of Oracle, to finally, finally get to see the Goddess, to hear her voice. Hours ago you learned the truth. You ran away to escape the lies, but now you feel so lost and directionless. You want to pray out of habit, but knowing now that your prayers have nowhere to go...

Do you pray anyway?
No. 1072083 ID: a39c57

pray to... something, *anything* that can hear your lone voice in the maelstrom.
No. 1072084 ID: 5fd272

Prayers are still a way of expressing yourself, of airing your thoughts. Even if they won't be heard, aren't they still a good way to process what you've been through?
No. 1072085 ID: e5709d

It depends. Do you believe in anything? You can pray to that if you want.
No. 1072087 ID: c290f0


You don't need to pray if your hearts not in it, what's the point otherwise?

Things are clearly way worse off then just being wet and lost; so in lieu of "praying" just talk to yourself. Give yourself a pep talk and take solace in the fact that at least now you've technically have nothing holding you back.

In fact this could be the start to a new chapter of your life, "Sam". Let's roll up those sleeves, tighten that belt bucket, get pumped, and say "I'm still alive, I've got skills, and what ever I do next I'm certain to succeed cause "SAM" has never failed once!"
No. 1072089 ID: 8f9bc4

Who's lying about the Goddess being alive? That's so cruel! And dangerous too! Do they not know of the wild void? The fall of the Grand Slimes? Statues of frozen Titans all over the land. None of that exists according to them?

What you need now is not prayer but purpose. Answers.
No. 1072091 ID: d6d4cd

The routine might help you feel some semblance of normal. Who knows, you might find a way to change them slightly for who they're for to suit your situation. Even if it's just for you.
No. 1072092 ID: cd48aa

Pray. It can't possibly make anything worse. And even if the Goddess is gone, maybe someone else will hear?
No. 1072093 ID: 273c18

Pray. But not to a being you know is dead. Reach out with your powers and see if you can find anything else.
No. 1072102 ID: fa3034

Maybe the habit will be comforting. Give it one last hurrah, yeah?

Say a few words in your mind about what you're feeling. It's not a prayer, exactly, but it's a lot closer to one than you'd generally admit
No. 1072278 ID: 6f11f5


No. 1072280 ID: 7edfcd

Why pray to nothing? If you truely wanted to embrace this lie then you wouldn't have fled home.
Reflect instead, who were you? What did you leave behind?

Whatever you do, do not pray to Todd Howard. He will take you money!
