Hin and I have reached the town just as dusk is falling. We ended up making good time traveling from my dungeon but we need to hurry or we'll be locked out.

I mourn for your loss, Deem, but you still have family. Us. Your denizens. Your monsters. If you seek revenge, so be it, but there is something else you should consider. What if you're not unique? There may yet be other dungeons in the world. We still have not reached out to the dungeon association. Your brothers and sisters might still be alive. Sleeping, or not.

Ah, a slip of the tongue, another secrets shakes loose.

If your siblings are lost, maybe your motherly nature can be of benefit. You might be a humble delving right now but once you are a might labyrinth, full of treasure and secret, who knows if you could maybe make more of your kind, and nurture them back from the edge of extinction.

But just so you know, we are going to continue to tease you mercilessly no matter how many times you get angry and snap at us.

>Of course we are going to churn the earth. Deem is angry, it has to happen.
You tempt me not to, purely out of spite but no my mood demands this.

I feel my stockpiled mana moving to use great magic. The hectic pace makes the ragged edges of my Heart sting coldly where my mana bleeds away.

I need mana and gold! I need to make use of my dungeon's environment and I need more and stronger monsters. The only real opposition is the frogs now the devil bear's gone. I pour away my precious, stockpiled mana to set the land thrumming, slowly intensifying. The earth will give up its treasures to those ready to claim them!

What's gone is gone.

I sway. I'm lost in mazy thoughts for a moment and then I know because I know that I cannot know that I know. I feel hollow. I'm still angry, there's things I need to do.

"You doing alright, Deem?" Hin says.

I blink. "I'm fine." I say. I should drink more for the pitiful sliver of mana my golem body will give me from it, if nothing else. "I was lost in thinking." I raise my cup. "Can you top it up?"

"OK, but if it's getting too much just tell me, OK?"

"Yeah gimme a refill too." Kallia says. "And one for Centaur to hold and me to maybe drink."

"Centaur?" I ask.

"Well she's half horse."

"I haven't done enough!" I suddenly announce to Hin and Kallia, and her golem too. "We haven't done enough."


The restless earth-pulse spurs me on. "This is a night out. We need to drink more at a bar, and dance, and talk, and get in fights, and rob that bank!"

"I'm down with most of that." Kallia says.

>And if we're being overdramatic about symbolism, you'd best tear the manacles off of that clay doll of yours. We've got a sky to tear down, and chains will only get in our way.
Do you think I didn't know that I knew? But I need a change! "And I should take off these rocks!"

The earth-pulse runs wild!

Delve: Labyrinthine ways. Instantly digs a large dungeon room or up to three smaller ones. Alternatively, can be used to reorder and rearrange rooms in the dungeon.

Empower Catalyst: Treasure to entice. It enhance useful qualities out of raw materials to be used in magic item creation or training of the dungeon's minions. It also can be used to upgrade an existing catalyst or transmute small amounts of copper, silver, gold or platinum into orichalcum, mithril, chrysadamant or adamantium.

Churn the Earth: Stoke the raging earth. Until a month passes, monsters are more aggressive and rarer types will be spawned. Monster growth is accelerated. Gold is much more likely to be found by digging rooms, exploring the area and defeating monsters.

Bestow Investiture: A gift of power! Instill strength, insight and mutations into a willing recipient with raw dungeon magic.

Terra Shift: Geomantic undertakings. Exaggerate or modify the surrounding terrain towards a different type. It can be made more or less suitable for different monster and resource types.

Verdant Chamber: Dungeon overgrowth. Upgrade an existing dungeon room to empower its functions and gain additional utility from it.

Pull back before you blow a gasket. Your entrance and main boss room is already a bit of a mess. Think of your denizens. They must be confused as to what’s going on.

Deem, doing two of these upgrades in a row can't be good for you or your denizens. You might end up fracturing your heart even more or you might end up injuring your denizens when the dungeon rearranges its layout.

Imagine her! Imagine her FACE!

She has been steadfast but neglected, I owe it to her. We need tools and treasures to bait the Labyrinth Game. Things to be desired. Things to be sacrificed and to make sacrifices for to obtain from the mazes beneath the earth.

The withered and ancient power I have demands no less. I must grow, my dungeon must become more. I summon my meager mana to the task, plummeting past when I would normally limit myself as the earth-pulse pounds around me and pouring it into the shape of a spell. I don't care! I need it now!

Verdant Forge - Curio Bud: Whenever a magic item is created, there's a high chance a weaker item with some related attributes will be created.

>Deem, you need to stop. We can see your core's brain-matrix bleeding from here. Any further and you might, I dunno, risk permanent brain damage as your core cracks from literal pressure?!
I don't have a brain.

What was I doing? I was so angry. I feel weak and weary and broken from the power that has passed out of me. My little hoard comforts me but my mana is disastrously depleted. It isn't enough, I need to do, do something.

The focus medallion is burning hot against my golem body's clay skin. It's attempts to restrict and stabilise the mana channels in my golem body are clearly failing. I feel ragged.

>Arha wants more suggestions
Centaur should carry Kallia around (while surreptitiously trying to absorb her golem clothes), like a proper workhorse golem.

Hin should hit up a snack stand and reach new heights of, uh, heightery. At one point she will grab some shrubbery and pretend to be a tree giant, since everyone else is doing it and she at least has the height advantage to do so.

Deem ends up in a drink-off with the shopkeep, who's out on town and surprisingly good at holding her liquor or at least faking drinking it. Deem descends into sad drunk semi-catatonia from her apparent loss (and also mana deficiency).

Kallia wants to impress (?) her acquaintances / drinking buddies about town, so takes the gang barhopping to show off her new looks and also Centaur which she totally made herself with only a liiiittle bit of dungeon magic (fingers crossed for a free round or two from all the silly stuff she's had to deal with - and hey, it's at least a little bit of advertisement for the Dungeon). She later wakes up in her bed, squished between Centaur and Deem, apparently the only thing preventing their renewed fusion.

Hin wakes up in a stable, because no way was she fitting back in through the door and into a bed anywhere sensible.

You have used too much mana, maybe you could do something less taxing.

It could be a great idea to ask Hin to write a letter for you to your companions and send centaur to send it to your dungeon. You can inform them of all the nice things that are happening today:
- Turns out that you are an expert drinker
- You get out with Kallia and Hin and kissed Kallia
- You churned the earth (maybe they should prepare)
- You are in war against the wretched sky now
- The bank is easy to steal so you may try a heist
- You miss them very much and you all have to get out sometime.
- You can end the letter with a drawing of you and your minions to show that you have them in consideration.

Centaur have now the power of two golems so it shouldn't have any problem to go to the dungeon and back in half the time. And for all I heard sending letters drunk is a good idea (I think).

No. 981845 ID: fba229

With the help of a giant artisan and a skilled golemeter, it should be possible to rig up some pillars as arms and legs and sculpt a bit of a face and torso, onto the Sky Temple. It doesn't need to be a useful golem that can actually walk and such, it just needs enough anatomy for the magic to stick and make it technically a golem, so that Centaur can eat it.
Hopefully that will given Centaur enough material that it willingly release Pony. Unless Pony is happy as a gestalt and wants to stay like that, in which case you can guilt them into making a golem child for you to adopt. Or just watch the giant clay-absorbing abomination automaton go on a rampage...

Go to Hin's old forge and reminisce about her past there, and maybe, if she is drunk enough, her past before that, and maybe your own past too.
