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!

>Why did you do Slime Quest over and not continue from the first try? Is the First Slime Quest Canon?

I just wanted a fresh start! I've had a lot of time since I first started SQ to think about the characters and the world they live in, and more concretely about the kind of story I want to tell. 1.0 feels disjointed and confusing, like I was trying to cobble together an RPG without any idea of what I was doing, which is true, because that's exactly what I was doing. 2.0 is softer, more focused on characters and feelings rather than numbers, and I like it a lot better that way.

The first SQ is not canon, at least, it doesn't matter in any way to the reboot. There's a couple jokes early on along the lines of "it feels like this has happened before" but those are just goofy references. SQ 2.0 is it's own thing.

>Would it be possible to combine Godkiller with our core, or the broken sword still in our core?

It's possible! But it would take more than just mashing the items together to make it work.

>Can we use Godkiller to kill small game to eat and grow bigger?

They probably wouldn't let you swing at anything less than a god, so probably not.

>Can we do magic?

Yes! But you need to learn some spells or runes first. Or you could try drawing something and see what happens.~

>can we still do attacks similar to the first Slime Quest, where we could absorb nails and spit them out as projectiles, or hold a arrow shaft inside and thrust it forward as a surprise attack?

Yes and no. You can still improvise with items for creative solutions, but I don't want to try and put too many numbers on things. It's more about the ideas and the feelings of things rather than the crunchy numbers of them.
Yes you can shoot nails out of your body. But should you?

>What's up with the voidkin? Are they good or bad? Neutral? As good or bad as any other individual? Are they a hivemind?

We still have a lot to learn about the voidkin in the story. It hasn't been established what their alignment is yet. Some people seem to fear them, others seem indifferent. We'll learn more as we get to know them!
Yes, they are a hivemind. The Void King is at the center of their unity, guiding them in a rhythmic flow called "Lockstep". We might learn more about that later.

>How is that cutie-foreman voidkin doing? The one that gave us the potion? Is he single and ready to mingle?

As far as we know, they're doing great! We'll get to see them again when we leave the mine.
They are not currently seeking a relationship outside of the Many, tho that may change as the story progresses.

>Whats our favorite food?

Currently, from best to worst, the ranking is:

1. Mushrooms from the Slime Hive
2. Grass
3. Glow Crystals

Queen Humphrey hasn't had a lot of options for food.

>If we disolve in water, what happens if we fall into liquids lighter or denser than water? What happens if we fall into oil, mercury, and so on?

I've scrapped the water weakness from 1.0. It seemed neat at the time, but I decided it would just be better to not deal with it in the reboot. You Can Get Wet in Slime Quest 2.0.
Slime is denser than water, so it sinks. I don't know what the relation to oil or mercury are, but I don't really foresee the story leading us to any large bodies of oil or mercury, so we'll probably be fine.

What's up with the titan statue, or is it the petrified corpse of a slime titan? Can we merge our core with what remains of it? Would Godrender know about them? Godrender looks like a weapon that would had belong to a titan.
If the sword of the slime titan can be unpetrified, can it be combined with Godrender?

Is it possible to reverse what happened to the slime titan, or is it 100% dead?
>>
No. 137444 ID: 2aa5f0

so when Humphrey and the queen's cores merged, were their cores both part of the original queen's core and they just slotted the broken pieces back into place or where they two completely different slimes that just have their cores merge into one new core?

Cause I'm still kind of confused if you were saying both cores were part of the old queen's core or if you were just saying slimes touching cores merge into one being?

Also when you had them merge did you plan from the beginning to have each core piece keep it's individuality or was that something you added after chat kind of freaked out a bit thinking they killed Humphrey?
>>
No. 137445 ID: 4ef090

>>137443

That's something we'll have to explore in the story!
The Titan is a petrified corpse, but it's also "Not Dead", but it's "Complicated". We'll learn more about the Titans as we travel further into the world.

>>137444

They are two pieces of a whole, but they are also their own people.

I had the plan to have each fragment be it's own personality from 1.0. It's a "core" part of the story that I want to tell. Even when together, these personalities will not be erased.

Most slimes can fuse together, but the How and Why of it is unknown currently, by which I mean that I know the answer, but Queen Humphrey does not yet understand. Maybe someone in the world who knows a lot about Slimes could Teach them?~

so how many races do you have in this world? I mean we've seen slimes, void kin, kobolds, bug people, a unicorn, maybe the mushrooms but I'm not sure they count.

>Can the queen make herself look like something else, like maybe the unicorn doctor, or a dog?

Basic shapeshifting allows them to alter their shape, but not their appearance. So they can take the shape of someone, but they'll still look like slime.


>so how many races do you have in this world? I mean we've seen slimes, void kin, kobolds, bug people, a unicorn, maybe the mushrooms but I'm not sure they count.

They've all had a very long time to mix together, so there are a lot of unique people in the world.

Animal-like people are considered "human". The bugs fall into this category.

Voidkin are darkness, typically branded with a large eye and bound with a garment of vibrant red.

Slimes range from small and jellyfish-like, to grand and vastly intelligent and powerful. The Queen used to be one of the most powerful slimes on the world.

The mushrooms are an artificial creature, and don't really fit into any of the above categories.

And there are a few others we'll encounter along the way.



>Do you know what a gun is?

Humphrey has occasionally seen people pass through town armed with guns, but doesn't know what they are or do yet.

How big are we now?

Can we tie a rope around the titan core and and use it as a kind of button to hold our neck cloak together?

Can we not combine the titan core to our core despite it being innert?

Are we combined with Godrender?

Can we combine Godrender with the sword remains of the slowly dying but petrified titan?
>>
No. 137502 ID: 4ef090

>How big are we now?

About two Godrender's tall, roughly. Taller if you pull the tail in!

>Can we tie a rope around the titan core and and use it as a kind of button to hold our neck cloak together?

It's a little big to use as a button, plus you don't have any rope on hand.

>Can we not combine the titan core to our core despite it being innert?

You can try! Slime cores and Titan cores are very different, so the reaction may be unstable, even in it's current state.

>Are we combined with Godrender?

You are not combined, but you are connected. This'll be elaborated on in the text.

>Can we combine Godrender with the sword remains of the slowly dying but petrified titan?

Not in a fusion sort of a way. If you can break the petrified sword out of the titan's grasp you might be able to affix it to Godrender in some fashion, but that's basically two swords taped together, and that's less useful than it seems.

so as we find our old parts and start to reform into our old self do we gain any new powers/abilities or is the only thing we gain while going small too big is basically being able to finally reach things on the top shelf?

Because nothing really seemed to change when we merged with Humphrey other then getting a chubbier tail and it's too soon to see if anything happened after merging with the sad angry slime dragon.

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.

>What would be a neat/fun/useful power/quality to have in the story?
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.
>>
No. 137513 ID: 4ef090

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.

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?

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?
