You awaken alone in a field. Beneath you the ground is scorched. The grass around you is tall and wild. The wind is soft and warm.
You were once a Grand Slime, the queen bee of a hive of slimes. Now you’re barely a fraction of your old self.

The broken hilt of the sword that slew you is wedged in a small, heart-shaped fragment of your magical gem core. The other pieces don’t appear to be close by.
The blade is stuck pretty good, almost like it’s fused with the crystal. Right now you’re not sure if that’s a Good Thing or a Bad Thing, so you file that away under “Thing” for now.

As far as you can tell you’re currently all alone. You hear a stream nearby. In the distance you see some trees, and in another direction what might be a town. It’s different from how you remember, and your memories are still a little fuzzy, but you think you recall your hive being somewhere nearby.

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.”

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.

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.

You eventually spill out into a cavern with a different set of glowing mushrooms growing out of the floor, these ones green and blue, and much smaller than the yellow ones in the lobby.

“These are glowshrooms,” says Humphrey, “They’re safe to eat. Don't eat the yellow ones tho, those are sunshrooms and they’re not safe to eat.” They absorb some of the mushrooms and you see them start dissolving in their flesh.

It does sound like you want to get to at least one of the gem shards before them. If only to find out why they want them. That's going to be difficult, though. They have more manpower than you do... unless you were to take your place as the queen of this hive and direct the slimes to dig around for it while the void guards aren't here.

Ask Humphrey if all the void guard wear red. I'm guessing the Void King has a double triangle eye, not a single?
No. 1008345 ID: 9ce839

Go to sleep. If they've been searching for the gem for several months, then it's unlikely they'd find it tomorrow, so we're not in a hurry. It's more important to get whatever info we can and prepare ourselves, maybe even get healed, before we decide to go into the caves.

Her smile fades. "oh, that sounds terrible, I'm so sorry. Yes, I'll take a look."

She climbs out of the seating pit and sets herself on a stool to peer at your pierced heart.

"Hmm.. this is void stuff. Tricky to work with, deadly for most, but you're lucky; you're a slime." She puts her fingertips lightly on your chest. "May I?"

You nod. She gently presses her fingers into you, sinking her entire hands inside. Her fingers wrap carefully around your core, feeling the cracks splintering down from the sword. Weird soft jolts ripple through you as she carefully pulls at the hilt, before finally pulling her hands out of you.

"Well I have some good news and some bad news," she says as she wipes her hands off with a nearby towel, "the bad news is that for right now, that sword is stuck in there. It's fused with your core in a way that makes it more dangerous to remove than it would be to leave it alone.

"Thankfully there's a wealth of good news. It's not corrupting you, which to me says that your core was once much bigger and more powerful, strong enough to render the sword harmless. We still can't say for certain, but it's more likely than not that you are, or at least were, in fact a grand slime.

"Secondly, and this is especially exciting, that's a void sword. Since it's fused to you, it IS you. Right now that may not mean much, but over time you may come to learn some void magic, and this sword gives you the power to use it.

"Lastly, this one is sort of a mix of good and bad. The bad is that I can't do anything about your memories right now. This is a fragmented core, and it's missing a lot of its pieces. Without a whole core, some of your memories are permanently lost, etched on those lost pieces.

"But there's hope. If those fragments are still out there, and you can find them and put them back together, you should be able to get your full memory back."

"Can you do anything about my size? If I'm a grand slime I should be big like one so I can crush the dumb idiot who tried to kill me.”

She shakes her head. "Right now that core can only handle the slime flesh you have currently," she giggles, "pull yourself together a little bit first and then we'll talk about making you big again."

"Say, would those core pieces be capable of, well, being me, too? As in, walking around, talking, wondering what's up with their scattered memory."

I wonder if the pieces of your heart are the same crystals the void king is looking for? He's trying to make amends, for some reason, and finding your pieces for you would go a long way towards that.

First thing's first, tell your hive. If they're hiding any pieces from the void guard then you can recover them. After that, I suppose you can start gathering information on where else your pieces might've gone.

I guess ask if she has any idea how to put a core back together... and I guess take a shot in the dark and ask if she would have any idea how one would go about finding their missing shard pieces?
No. 1009910 ID: 988d40

and is there any way to find these pieces or am I gonna have to search for bits of myself spread across a field?

I don’t suppose you’d happen to know where I’d even begin to learn some void magic?

Thank her for being so helpful! Does she know any good way to start trying to find them?

I'm pretty sure that swords and slime cores shouldn't go together. Like a crystal, if your core would grow around the sword, it would just become imperfect and deformed. I doubt the gain in void magic would outweigh the loss of slime powers. What we need to do is find a way to melt this sword as only then could we properly absorb it. For now, I think only the titans would possess such info... we need to go back to the statue.

Ask the unicorn about the void magic and how to deal with void stuff.

And then go back to the titan statue.
