You don't exist yet.

This guy wants you to exist even though he thinks he'll do a bad job creating you. From there you'll have some sort of adventure and hopefully start to look better. Things might even get... saucy.

Anyway.

What are you?
If you're something complicated it's likely you'll come out especially weird, but he's ready to take the plunge.

Yeah being able to talk back would be nice. You're very curious about what these voices are like. The only other creatures you've encountered have all been very boring and you don't remember most of them very clearly.

Except for rats. Adorable squeaks which also feel extra fun from the inside. But you haven't seen any rats in a while.

Okay. Need to talk. Just focus on... talking... Thinking about those voices, thinking about recreating that somehow...
Okay, got it. Think this will do it!

...what should I say? Maybe I should practice or something, then try to talk to something!?

GUMPDATE

>CURRENT ABILITIES
>Vocalize! Lv.1
Produce sounds that let you communicate with similarly intelligent beings. Based on being able to hear speech and synthesize it over time.

---

>AVAILABLE GUMPTION: 0
>ABILITY [GUMP COST] | DESCRIPTION
Engulferate [1] | Given sufficient force, push something through your membrane while keeping bodily integrity. You can already do this to small things, like delicious rats, but your membrane makes larger things dangerous at the moment.

Opacity Slider [1] | Alter your membrane and biomass to let more light through, meaning you become much more transparent. Your membrane is a lot thicker and thus more visible, but in a space you can completely encompass this is negligible.

"Seen Enough Hentai..." Lv. 1 [1] | Produce thin dexterous fine manipulators. Maximum circumference of around an inch, strength similar to a human child, number of tendrils dependent on available biomass.

New!Vocalize! Lv.2 [1] | Produce sounds that let you communicate with just about anything that can do so. The amount of listening and synthesizing time required varies with complexity (animals with complex vocal communication vs. animals with simple sounds vs. electronics, and the like)

Eyes on the Outside [2] | Form visual sensory organs on the surface of your membrane when you feel like it.

Membranous Integrity Lv.1 [2] | Increase your membrane's elasticity and toughness to avoid leaking any precious biomass when under stress and strain.

Splitsville [4] | Separate yourself into multiple functioning entities. Risk of philosophical terror.

"Mother fucker do you hear me? I hear you takin' a shit or whatever that nasty schlorping is! MUST I remind you that I have a FUCKING GUN!?"

That voice feels very interesting. It's always got that high pitched screechy sound, but the changes in volume are pretty fun. And how certain parts of it just seem more important without being louder or something.

You're really learning a lot about having a fucking gun!
(You're not 100% sure what a fucking gun is but the voice sure cares a lot.)

You love this feeling, all the thoughts flooding in and bubbling up! The little vibrations in the stringy/dangly parts are so weird, but you can't help but tingle with enjoyment as they work their way up your (?)throat(?) and pass through your (?)lips(?).

There's three of us down here!? Well ravish my cunt with a fucking cactus! And a gun is the most badass of weapons, capable of blasting a tiny fireball through a urethra at mop 7!"

>>943467
>"HELLOOOOOO FRIIEEEEENDO DO GUNS SCHLOOORP!??!"

"Quit yelling! You're not the one with the gun! And the way you talk sounds like 'schlorp', not this baby!"

You feel a fairly quiet noise from around the corner. A low humming that slowly gets louder, more intense, and higher pitched until you can't really hear it anymore. Weird! Sorta makes you think of the metal cave in a way you're not sure about.

>>943488
>"Hello, yes! I hear you have a gun! Who is fucking?"

"Oh somebody's fucking alright! It's me, taking a week's worth of my boner tabs and fucking your skull!"

You realize that hum before never really went away. You must have gotten used to it or something. It definitely goes away when the whole cave goes crazy!

The first thing you feel is your innards getting sloshed around along with the loudest noise you've ever heard! It's like you were hearing something move above you but it wasn't touching anything. Then another really loud noise from around the corner! Then tons of echoes!

"Ow my fucking ears!"

That hum starts to build up again, but suddenly goes away before it can keep going.

The idea of something piercing your membrane isn't necessarily worrisome, but with the amount of sloshing you're certainly scared of something like that actually hitting you. Good thing it didn't!
...something about that is embarrassing again...

>>943601
>"seconding the time to leave while he is dazed by his own gunshot."
This thought gives you some pause for reasons you can't really articulate. Might be... off somehow. Kinda weird! Maybe you can... ask someone sometime! You're going to be able to learn so much.

>>943625
Interesting. You'd never really thought about being really loud. You've kind of figured out how to change how the air comes out of you but had just chosen the amount of air kinda at random.

You take the opportunity to take in as much air as feels safe and then try your best to recreate that loud noise. A slimy version of it. It comes out more like someone yelling "BWOMP" instead of the actual BWOMP itself, which also had that crazy CRRRACK sound. Doesn't feel... impossible though.

You schlip on down through the [b]moderately spooky passageway of interesting things[/g] back to the right side with the deeper voice.
Not that you think it's deep. It's like the left voice is very... sharp? The closest thing you've heard was rat squeaks but it's not really a lot like that.

>"I'm back and here for fruitful dialogue!"
You try and fail to not sound too eager.

"Fruit... Full... I'm sorry I don't know fruits. I have never eaten fruits. I can't say a lot of things about fruits."

You start formulating your throat position when the voice continues,

"I am happy you are talking to me. Very happy. I'm alone down here, very alone. Please tell no one I said that."

>>944241
>"What is the prize?"

There is a much longer pause. Maybe the voice is having throat problems just like you! You're getting the hang of it though. Lots of little things to keep track of.

"I apologize. I don't have... much... much prize? There are a lot of prizes, but not in the hole. This hole. The ground's hole, not mine. One of mine. Oh no. Please let me start again."

Wow that embarrassing feeling is back, but this time it's like you're feeling it despite the voice saying it! That's weird. Cool weird!

"If you help me, I swear with my blood and my offspring's blood that I will give you a prize. Any prize I have. Or if you wait, a different prize. Maybe."

You realize that once the voice heard you, the deeper thumping started again! Slowly alternating like the last time you were nearby, but this time moving away from you, then back towards you, then away, then back, like that.

>"What are you?"

The alternating thumpings stop.

"What are... I? What am I?"

The voice pauses. Then it says something oddly. Since you've started synthesizing speech you are picking up on how things talk, and the next thing it said sounds like it had practiced it for a long time.

"I am Dez'Vort, daughter of Vort'Rav, Predominant Emissary of
the burial mounds."

>>944303
>>944306
>"Okay, I'll help you! How do I help?"

The alternating thumpings start again and move towards you until they stop almost directly below you. Then the voice is closer too.

"Help me leave this hole! Drop a rope, or ladder, or a large box I can stand on!"

They sound pretty worked up again. They really hate that hole!

>>944303
How far away... You're not sure! The thing you know the best is probably rats so you try to think how many rats it would take if they could climb on walls and stand on each others heads.

How absurd! You'd really like to see that. And then consume the rats.

Anyway, you would guess something like 20 rats. Maybe less than that.

>>944906
There's... a thing!

Wow.

What in the hell is that thing?!

It looks like it has eyes and a mouth but that's right about where things get freaky. You wonder why it's not looking up and just standing there. There's all this stuff to look at, how could you not just be looking all over the place?

Just standing there... and kinda growing and shrinking? Oh, you know this one. Breathing! The rats did this, they would do it very very fast when you caught them. Then they'd try to do it after you engulf them, but that just made it easy to get inside them and start digesting from the other end. Those were the days!

Anyways, I cannot stress enough how this thing is just crazy go nuts! How is it upright like that?

>>944420

It's stuck in there pretty good. Looks like it would have been in some kind of alcove but then you guess over time the rocks moved around until it couldn't get out.

That'd be kinda scary if you had all those bones and stuff, ha ha!

"wow, hey, git dat out, bug off dat. eye hex dat. eye hex dat bit. dat eat rat, eat rat. heh, not ire. was big 'aah!', not ire. you not eat dis rat. you hep guy.

Ah jeez. Looks like you spooked him a bit! You have never given a lot of thought to the things you consume being living, thinking things like you are now. You sure hope those other rats weren't like this one!

Also at the moment it's kinda hard to even push the edge of yourself up into the container. You'd have to give that a lot of thought to really figure out how to do it. It'd be nice if there were some helpful animated guides on how to do it!
Wowee. Hoo doggie, that embarrassment is hitting hard for some reason from that line of thinking. You plan on forgetting you thought that.
.
..
...
Done!

Looks like the rat calmed down.

"eye can hop gap and put paw, put paw zip zap, das end."

It picks up one paw and slides it down the wall of this container. The pads on it look really rough and definitely slide down slower, and those little claws can really dig in if it wants to. You suppose you could do things like that, maybe. Not right now. But it's good to have aspirations!

It's settling back down now, which is nice.

"try ask gob? she has gun, def has gun (laf!), but got lab tek too. she pal: dat good. she not pal: dat way bad. gun bad for rat!"

The way it does a little chittery noise is very pleasant. You make sure to practice that one so you can reproduce it when you want to hear it again. The rat looks very pleased!

"you laf too? you vex but you rad too. yak yak and laf. top fun.

You dare say you've made a friend!
