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!

Yes!! We are going to get new powers and abilities with each piece!

And we didn't get a lot from Humphrey partly because they didn't have a lot of powers on their own, and partly because both the Queen and Humphrey sacrificed half their flesh, making them both less capable. Joined together they broke even.

We can glow now, I did forget to mention that, and that probably becomes brighter with another piece connected.

This is actually a great time to ask, what would you LIKE to be able to do? I'm writing up the patch notes for QH's new abilities and want to include more than "Stronger" and "Taller" and "Shapeshift Better". What would be a neat/fun/useful power/quality to have in the story?

Hold more stuff in our slime. I'm kinda worried about people jumping in our goop and stabbing our core. Maybe we should hold sharp things inside the slime like flechette? Maybe wear armor?

Splitting on purpose. Camouflage. Regeneration. Armor plating. Extendo-limbs. "Connection" sensitivity, like psychic powers. Fruit flavored slime. Sticky slime, oily slime, combustible slime.

The ability to be able to split into multiple slimes based off how many cores we've merged. (so as of now we'd be able to split into three different slimes, Humphrey, the queen, and angry for example) while still being linked to each other so they know what the the other slimes know even if they're not in the same place. Useful for multitasking and giving the slime core personalities more screen time for shenanigans.

Other thoughts would be since our new core piece could make mushrooms maybe some kind of summoning power.

Do you want mushroom powers? <w< there's room for it in the narrative, but I'm also fine with not having them around. I did write down some buffs and debuffs preemptively, just in case, but if people don't want a big mushroom hat, then I won't include it.

For real though wouldn't mind we we could summon a mushroom to do a thing. Could be fun.

Will there potentially be cool transformations associated with some of these powers as they're invoked? Think Humphrey-tail slime power = a more Humphrey shape, a dragon-slime power = a dragon shape and a heart-stabbed slime power = the 'regular' adventurer/knight shape.

As for powers themselves... eh. Got nothing immediately great, but I'll spitball some ideas. Seems more like generalizations of potential strengths, though.

'Void heart' slime - This slime-piece feels like the 'adventurous' one, poking at stuff, questioning things, getting into and outta trouble. Void powers are an obvious 'un to explore, but feels like they'd best come by way of interaction with void beings or stuff.

'Humphrey' slime - is bounce-most and glowy. Something jumping or movement related? Double jump, mighty jump? DOUBLE BOUNCE, BIG BOUNCE, etc. He's also the 'pretty' one, and with the glowing something charisma-relevant would fit. Like, HYPNOTIC TAIL WAG or PERSUASIVE POSE-STERIOR, hee.

'Dragon' slime - Could potential pull out some mushroom powers due to her association with the titan (and maybe with the aid of Godrender who now has all the titan's memories), so that's definitely on the table. Millenia of sadfeels and the titan connection can also have made her powers something darker or at least significantly different than the other two's.

On top of this, powers stemming from 'combos' of parts has some potential, I think! Was always a big fan of the Chrono Trigger combo attacks, and combo powers being developed and explored during the course of the quest sounds like it could be fun. What would a Void-Titan-Slime power look like, I wonder?

I’m sure she kissed a lot of cuties in her time, but any crushes would probably be long long gone at this point. Probably.

You lnow how octopuses can fit into almost all spaces, with the limitations being their beaks? Can the same be said with Queen Humphrey? Can she fit through tiny cracks with the limitations being if her core can fit through said cracks?

Can slimes wear armor?

Can a slime eat another slime, or is that taboo?
>>
No. 137627 ID: 4ef090

>>137573

As long as they can get their core to fit, Queen can get their body through just about any opening.

Slimes can wear armor! Though they generally prefer to keep it easy breezey with lighter garments that let them move naturally and fluidly.

Cannibalism is generally frowned upon in slime culture. Not that it's especially harmful, it's just rude.

if a slime were to step on a grate would they be solid enough to be able to walk on it or would they slip through the gaps?

>How much food do we need to eat to grow mass? Can we use our slime to heal?

I could have explained it better, but for brevity's sake I omitted the details. There are a number of factors that play into growth and regeneration.
Slime Hives are safe places that naturally energize slime healing. There's plenty of food, and the space is safe and comfy. Slimes heal and grow well in a hive, sometimes taking no more than a day to be restored.

Healing in the wild is much much harder. Cuts can heal over within a couple hours. Losing mass is much more dangerous. Slime cores on their own produce a much less potent natural energy than what radiates through hives, so it takes a lot more work. It can take multiple days to return to full size. And if something damages the core, that process can turn into weeks, months, decades, millenia, etc.

Also, there's an upper limit to how big a slime can get. The energy of a core keeps a slime together through a fairly tough surface tension. But the more slime there is to hold together, the weaker that tension becomes. Anything extra will just wash off until they return to a manageable size.

Which leads nicely into:
>if a slime were to step on a grate would they be solid enough to be able to walk on it or would they slip through the gaps?

It depends on what the slime wants to do, and how large the gap is or thin the bars. For the most part, slime tension allows them to stand firm on stuff like metal grates. If they wanted to phase through a mesh, as long as they can fit the core through, they can do it. They can also reach through meshes without necessarily traveling through them.

So does this mean if we go back to the hive the queen would get bigger since both she and Humphrey both lost a lot of slime to help out the bug girl? Or would she stay her current size?
>>

She'd probably get a little bigger, but not too much. Their tail would certainly get thicker for sure.

Oooooh. A proper sword handle is a good idea. Increases the swinging range, and the handle within the blade could be used to leverage attacks or better brace against them. We should find a smith in quest later.

Unless is Godrender capable of self modifying his sword body? Is there any way we can upgrade him? Slimes can grow in mass by eating things, but I'm unsure if the same stands for Slime Titans or their sentient weapons.

Just an idea, as the core is just about the most important part of a slime. If most slimes don't like wearing armor, what if we simply covered our cores in a layer of armor?

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
