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?~

>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.

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?

>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?

>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.

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?

>>
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.

>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?

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.

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.

>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:

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)

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.

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?

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.
