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!

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:

Slime Queen's Real Name
The nature and origin of the Void
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)

Noticing your post about fan content, my partner convinced me to share this doodle I drew the other night. I think I'm going to call them Clancy and am really enjoying thinking out a story for them! I hope it's alright for me to have attached a photo here, and thank you for being such a big inspiration.

>actually I'm kinda curious, why is slime queen's Final Form different now

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.

It's called "real life". The quest author probably has something going on irl and that's preventing them from working on the quest.

thread quest is coming i swears! it's just taken me a bit to work on it. I started it with the idea that it would be a side thing I could do around SQ updates, when I had the time and energy to do it, and I just haven't had the energy the past few weeks. Slime Quest is way more important to me personally, and gets significantly more of my attention. But I do have an update brewing, hopefully it's nice and people like it

They're gonna do a heckin smooch and maybe even a kiss.

Wanted to say, Slime Quest rocks, and also there's something I wanted to ask in the thread but the time for when it was most relevant has sort of passed and I imagine it'd be a bit awkward to work in to a conversation now, so I'll ask it here: What is Humphrey's earliest memory? Like, where and when does he remember first waking up?

I'm glad you're enjoying it! thanks so much for reading along ^^

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?
>>

it is a good idea I believe, you can't have us roll because we will average every time

Reproduction.
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.


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.
>>
No. 138512 ID: 4e2df1

>>138511
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?

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. 138521 ID: 15c72a

Can Grand (and Elder) Slimes become Awakened and/or Ascended?
