For questions, comments, discussion, and general jibber jabber about the Slime Quest story, world, characters, etc etc.

Setting this up to make it easier to read through suggestions on the main board.

Also, there are some things I may not be able to answer in the format of the story. Ask about that stuff here! I can't reveal everything, but there's still some stuff I'd love to elaborate on/clarify.

Keep it friendly, please!

Godrender is modifiable! We'll run into something or someone that can do the job shortly.

I suppose that could be possible yes! Having a sort of mesh armor allows the slime and core to stay connected, while also providing extra defense. So yes! Some slimes probably do have Armored Cores. :3c

It's a secret I forget the answer to every time I think about it.
They manifest around/from crystals, which channel natural slime energy from the earth.

>>137933
>what IS at that purple dude(ett)s camp?

Garland the Slime is there, and so is Wreathe the Doll. They each have a bag of tools, food, and offerings. Knowing the mountain better than anyone, they don't need to carry much, tho Wreathe gets themselves into enough trouble to warrant Garland carrying an assortment of woodworking tools to mend them with.

>Is there anything stopping Queen from using her sword to try and summon(/ give purpose too) voidkin?

Queen doesn't know how to do that, and it's not exactly something one can stumble through. But someone in the world has spent multiple lives studying void and would know a thing or two about it. Maybe we'll meet them and they can school us in the ways of the void!

well, seeing how the first interaction between the two parties went I'm sure it's going to end with one party in a casket while the other moves on. I mean charging at someone with a blade with intent to kill only to get knocked down a freaking mountain and left for dead probably made it so both sides don't really have much to say to each other.

>what color even IS Queen, as far is I can tell/remember, they've always been drawn with a background color

Short answer:
Queen is purple/blue, Humphrey is yellow, Mirrow is cyan, and Godrender is pink. I considered making it so that as they find more pieces the colors would mix but i feel like that would start to look gross by end game.

Long Answer:
It changes from panel to panel as an artistic choice, not necessarily a literal translation of their color. I like to do all kinds of different colors to fit whatever gradient I'm using for a scene. Some panels would look weird if the colors were the same, at least to my eyes.
If something does have a specific color, such as the voidkin red, I like to try to stay true to it, but I've broken that rule several times just with Soot and Godrender, so really it's a matter of how much effort I'm willing to put into each panel to keep those colors consistent.

Golly, im flattered as hell that anyone would look at my work and say "i wanna do that too"

i think that would be pretty neat and I'd love to see the sorts of things people made!! Despite what it says on my twitter, I'm not the authority on slimes or void or.. anything, so you don't need my permission to make a slime person with a big sword and a crystal heart lol.

Also, there's a lot of lore that hasn't been explained in canon yet, and some of it might not be revealed for a while. But if you still wanted to make something related to my setting, or unrelated but still inspired by it, I would be just so honored and humbled to know about it!

Not sure if it would be better to make a separate dis-thread for fan creations, or just post them here, but I guess we'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

There's a lot of stuff, story beats and characters that I'm eager to gush about. Some of it exists in the world but might not even fit into the story
In no particular order tho, here's stuff I'm dying to talk about, but can't yet:

the Voidking's history
Slime/Void technology (soon)
the Afterlife and those who run it
the goddess as a person
Who Killed the Goddess
the rebuilding of the world
Slime University
Slime evolution
the "elsekin"
the "Primordial Slimes (or Worms)"
what slime magic is and who Mage Candyfloss was (soon)
Robots
The Evercraft
a certain bird's relationship with the void
a certain slime's origin
What Ever Happened to Vuota
Slime Queen's new final form (this is becoming less of a secret because I keep drawing and sharing art of what I expect her to look like by end game)

The in character reason is that the queen's cores are new and different people, and that affects her ultimate form when they reconnect.

The out of character reason is I forgot what the original form was and ended up making something cooler for her to turn into.

I think i glossed over it when they fused as just being a blur of rememberies shared between the two of them, but Humphrey's canon first memory is waking up in the hive. Their core was found somewhere in the mines XXXX years after the world broke and brought back to grow in the hive. Sometime later, Humphrey's core grew a new body!

We'll be entering combat again soon, and I'm not sure how I want to do it. What are some good suggestions for queuing actions and rolling dice? Preferably something that doesn't involve too much math homework

My initial thought was to do it similar to Thread Quest where I roll a d6 for every action suggested (based on majority for multiple conflicting suggestions) and build a battle plan based off of that.

Does that sound like a good idea? Is there a better way to do this?

How do interspecies relationships work. I mean it looks like slimes don’t really have genders and apparently don’t have offspring the way most other species do and if I had to guess voidkin are in a similar boat. So do romances work between species normally or do they just go up to really good friends and stay there?

>>138508

I've had a lot of different ideas about slime reproduction and such, and I've never really seemed to settle on one clear answer.

A few thoughts have remained consistent, and are as follows:

•The earth is full of primordial slime

•some of this earth slime crystalizes in chunks on the surface

•crystals resonate a natural power that draws more slime out of the earth and creates a simple slime

•simple slimes have no thoughts or souls, and wander about like jellyfish, mindlessly eating whatever tiny critters they roll over

•sometimes a bit of crystal breaks off in a simple slime and forms a tiny core. This coalesces over time, becoming larger and stronger, until eventually the slime gains sentience

•from here the slime continues to grow and become stronger, eventually growing strong enough to form limbs. These are called "upright slimes" until I can think of a better title

•upright slimes typically stop getting stronger at this point, but some can continue to become bigger and stronger, and eventually they become "Awakened"

•Awakened slimes begin to grow new features such as horns or teeth or hair, and usually some variation of genitals. Their bodies gradually grow larger and stronger until they discover a powerful truth about themselves, literally shaking them to the core, and causing them to become "Ascended Slimes"

•Ascended slimes begin to take on more and more features unlike those associated with slime, so much so that they can become entirely unrecognizable as slime. Things like bones and organs and such. From there they just keep getting stronger and stronger until their core can no longer support them, and they return to the earth


Grand and Elder slimes are not on the evolutionary path, nor are man-made slimekin or Titans, as they are all beings of creation rather than evolution.

The span of time between evolutionary steps can vary anywhere from decades to centuries.


TL;DR, slimes manifest from the earth asexually, grow up big and strong, and then return to the earth.


DATING???

All the funny peoples can date each other if they want to and are old enough, I'm not sure what else to say about it lol. Not all of them can reproduce with each other, but that doesn't mean they can't love one another. It's not like slime and void explode when they touch.

Absolutely! Color is often determined by the minerals nearby, but slimes can change it if they so desire. It's probably not instantaneous, but they do have some control over it.

Tricky is small and adorable, so their smoochability is pretty high up there.

I drew this for thanksgiving as a goof but it applies to Christmas too

Nemo and voidking have to sit at the kids table and it’s awkward cuz they did kill Nemo, but they’re acting pretty chill about the whole thing.
Holidays with the family am I right???

oh, yeah I guess so! Tho the Voidking isn't technically registered as a contact, but if we can get that info we could call them!
