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!

How is babby slime formed?
No. 138510 ID: 4e2df1

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?

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.


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.
No. 138512 ID: 4e2df1

So does that mean slimes and voidkin are basically the same with the only difference being slimes come from the earth and voidkin come from beyond it?

I would assume Humphery would know what Elder Slimes are? could you tell us?
No. 138517 ID: 2aa5f0

Radom and hopefully simple question. Slime color, can slimes chose what color they are or is it more like just being born with a certain color hair as in you're just born that way and have no real control over it? And speaking of hair, could a slime dye themselves if they wanted to?

No. 138630 ID: 02cfda

>Does Humphrey know about Elder Slimes?
Only one person in the story has heard anything about Elder Slimes, and it's not Humphrey.

>can slimes change their color?
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.

>Can Grand/Elder slimes awaken/ascend?
that's something we'll have to discover together

>can our MC fuse with other slimes?
kiiiiiiiinnnnd of. I don't want to spoil it, but it's definitely different from fusing with her own pieces.

>"Nice effect you put on the swords eye, just wanted to put that out there"
It's very subtle, but I'm glad someone noticed it hahaha

Sweet, now if we ever need to do something sneaky we can just turn our color, wear a wig, and slap on a fake mustache. We'd be a master at disguise.

How smoochable is Tricky?
No. 138702 ID: b01382

Is Nemo/Humphrrey melting because of its hot outside, or because we picked to activate the mushroom powers?
No. 138732 ID: 02cfda

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

We're melting because "boy it's hot, are you hot or is it just me? I just feel really hot all the time, like I can't get cool or comfortable, I just want to be like in a dark cave where it's cold and wet and dark, that would be great."

He's kind of an amalgamation of everything I love about video game clowns antagonists. Reckless desire for chaos, cool hat and robe, big hands for casting evil spells, bonus points if they are made of or are in control of a mysterious "Evil Fluid"
I hope that people love him as much as I do, the fucked up little freaky evil dude he is
No. 139095 ID: 0ba437

I've been waiting so long to reveal this character, you have NO idea. You also have no idea how much of this quest has been planned years in advance, and how much of it I've made up on the spot. It's been a wild ride. I hope it continues to be an exciting and enjoyable one.

Actually, on that note, I'd love to get some feedback! This is the longest I've ever worked on something, and I wanna make sure I'm doing it right. How do you feel about how things are going? Am I listening to suggestions and interacting with the audience well? How do you feel about the art style shifting so much? What sort of stuff would you like me to keep in consideration moving forward?

I'm having an absolute blast running this story, and I'm so happy that other people are enjoying it too. I've cried over Slime Quest several times in the process of writing and drawing it. Maybe that's a silly thing to do, but It's very special to me, and I want to tell it as well as I possibly can. I want other people to love my goofy characters and world.

Thank you for continuing to read Slime Quest. From the bottom of my heart to the top, Thank You. <3

What if we had waited for the Guild? Would they have recommended going into the lake?
No. 139103 ID: 0ba437

Nope, we probably would have just gone to Snowloaf. The guild was mentioned by the crystal smith to fill out the world a little bit more and give us more things to do outside of the main objective of recovering our pieces, but it was not the ""intended route"". It feels reductive to say "we didn't go where I meant for us to go" because this is an interactive medium. You tell me where you want to go and what you want to do, and in return I tell you a story. I think that's neat.

I'm like a GM furiously laying down tracks before the players as we chug along and im having a lot of fun building the world this way.

spoiler-free answer:
Don't Worry About It.

magic-spoiling answer:
Everything is laid out very loosely, until it's explicitly set in stone. Locations, items, people, all that stuff shifts around behind the scenes until it slots into place for the story. I have a general idea about the broader strokes of the story, such as key locations, what things are in them, pieces of history etc etc, but the details are fluid. Through exploring and talking to people we're solidifying all that information.
So the statue could have been anywhere, or if not the statue, information about the person in the statue. Some of this stuff is planned, some of it Just Feels Right come update day.
I started the story with a handful of key ideas, like a map with locations, but no roads drawn between them. We're forging those paths and discovering new places along the way.
I dunno. Maybe I'm revealing too much by saying this. Don't worry about it, the story is going to happen one way or another.

No. 139112 ID: 30b9f6

It's a legit fun cutesy-to-cutesely-serious story, you're doing fine, you're definitely not the only author who gets emotionally involved in they silly chars and That's Okay, as far as I can tell you're on the good end of listening to suggestions while still letting Plot Happen, the art style shifting Is Good And Fine And Even Kinda Expected, I have no particular considerations I'd want you to keep to, so... just carry on and have fun!

Void King. Death cat is unavailable, The Trickster is evil, and Tricky is too young.

Bit of an unfortunate coincidence that Tricky and The Trickster have such similar names.

Why is the sexy clown so evil? If we manage to collect all the slime parts, would we be strong enough to fight that sexy, sexy jester?
No. 139850 ID: 0ba437

the sexy clown is evil because all clowns are evil in their own special ways. <3 and I have a soft spot for the iconic bad guy clowns in video games (Dimentio, Joka, Javis, Jevil, Spamton, etc)

Getting our pieces back might make us strong enough to fight the Trickster! Or it might not. Who can say until it happens!

far be it for me to stop you from romancing the clown. If you can somehow become close enough friends to justify it, I will absolutely let you date them.

Should we be getting into the complex agendas of the Trickster, the Void King, death kitty and such, or do you just want a simple battle of good versus evil? Because people are saying they know stuff that they don't, and it would be absolutely delicious crow to eat if they turn out to be dead wrong, if that's the sort of story you like to tell. But they want it a certain way, and if you just want Nemo to battle the Trickster that's okay too.

I guess either way I shouldn't try to poke holes in their assumptions. If they're right then I'm just being annoying and overthinking it. If they're wrong then there's no reason to warn them about it.
No. 139901 ID: 0ba437

It's not as complicated as I think some people think that it is, it just seems that way because I haven't revealed all the info yet. We don't know what relationship/history the void king and trickster have with each other, so it's not clear who's to blame for what. I promise it'll start to clear up sooner than later.

But yeah, I do also kinda just want Nemo to fight the Trickster because I think that would look really cool and feel really good and be really fun to draw, I'll admit it lol.
No. 139912 ID: 8f9bc4

No. 140791 ID: 0ba437

i started writing a short answer/long answer, but it started getting poetic, so here's the Short Answer:
Normal elsekin just use them as extra eyes. Nothin' too special. They're generally more perceptive because of it but that's all.
Those that practice Goddess worship do have access to some sort of power they call "The Goddess' Will" that they channel through their extra eyes. The limits of this power are unknown, but recorded effects tend to range from small miracles such as healing, to greater ones like divination. Since they spend so much time with those eyes closed, they're extra sensitive to light. Often you can tell someone uses Will Magic because their upper eyes are covered.
