My name is Mary.I own and operate a dungeon.This wasn’t a deliberate choice, mind you. I was forced into this when the previous owner placed a curse on me after I tried to get him to pony up the money he owed my boss. Now I'm the ruler of this place and my boss fired me for having two jobs. So I’m stuck here for the foreseeable future.At least there’s a spa...Right now I’ve turned in after a long day of dealing with adventurers, and sponsorships for the dungeon.
>>1325070Or at least I would be if someone hadn’t just set off the most obnoxious alarm I’ve ever heard!DA NA NA NA NAAAAA!It’s four in the morning! What could possibly be happening at four in the morning?!DA NA NA NA NAAAAA!Nope, just ignoring it.DA NA NA NA NAAAA!DA NA NA NA NAAAA!DA NA NA NA NAAAA!DA NA NA NA NAAAA!“Mary, are you awake? We may have a tiny problem.”That sounds like the archiver. She said she’d keep an eye out for people vandalizing the entrance tonight since she’d be up late anyway doing I don’t care what.
>>1325079“Oh thank goodness, Mary, you’re awake,” the Archiver says, sounding relieved as you come out of your room in bathrobe and crown.“Believe me that was in no way a willing arrangement on my part. Why is this alarm going off.”“Somebody sighted Silent Protagonists in the area. All the dungeons around here are going on high alert,” the librarian explains.I don’t know if I want to ask what those are.
>>1325089They are crazed lunatics that like to steal from people's bedrooms, break earthenware, and walk into people without saying excuse me.
>>1325089Is it the Tali Alert?Mary, have all available view screens target the silent protagonist, maybe we can get a look at them before they start trashing our shit.
a silent protagonist never says anything other then maybe a grunt of exertion or pain. in exchange they are incredibly powerful. they can answer yes or no questions with the shake of their head but otherwise don't communicate.
>>1325102And suck at puzzles. Let's saitch the dungeon to puzzle mode! Where you can pay to make the puzzles easier!
>>1325089Does that mean they speak exclusively in screams, like that one asshole in green tights? If so, watch out for hookshots.
>>1325110Oh, we can go full Freemium, and give the Hero an Energy Limit that he can pay for more of as well as special paid boosts.
>>1325110what? no they are amazing at puzzles. Link is a WIZ at puzzles. mostly because he never gives up, ever.
>>1325116They just keep going until they get it and are worthless without a fairy helper.
>>1325089Silent Protagonists are said to be unbeatable. You'll have to go all out with to not lose.
>>1325089LIAR! THE PROTAGONIST CAN CLEARLY TALK!
>>1325155Dude, just play to their weaknesses.Make a bunch of social challenges. Scrap most of the fighting.
>>1325070>>1325102>>1325106>>1325155The Archiver confirms most of what you guys said. Though she adds that they're basically normal adventurers who never stop adventuring, so they tend to be super strong and have a lot of skills and special equipment. Also they have a tendency to just take anything that's laying around or ignore the damage they do in fights.>>1325110>>1325161I'm not sure we have time t-Now the invader alarm is going off. I should probably check on that. 1/4
>>1325168Hey I recognize that blocky guy!
>>1325168Holy crap there are actually adventurers showing up at this hour. Are those the Silent Protagonists?Where's all that light coming from? It's 4AM! 2/4
>>1325178AHHHHH! Reveal them!
>>1325178Ah, it looks like the Carpenter dropped one of his construction lights. He did say he was going to be up all night getting ready to renovate the exterior.3/4
>>1325187Ah, that explains it!
>>1325187Okay, that's better. Huh. They don't look like much.Wait.. crap that's a title card.Okay guys. Apparently Silent Protagonists automatically put us into raid mode. The Archiver says there are some extra functions added but we don't have time to figure those out.Anything we should change for the entrance? The store is close right now. Dungeoneer must still be asleep.
>>1325196That adventurer on the left looks dumb. Where's her fedora?
>>1325196ALL THE SLIMES! Basically have the entrance full of if many one rune water slimes as it can get. And tell our lovely Miss Bloops to get out there and hide in the closed shop. Have your human minion put on a catkini and attend the shop wearing a sign that says "NPC".
>>1325196Yeah.Bar the entrance until they have the ten MacGuffins.
>>1325196Oh look, a goat.
>>1325196Throw lesbian slimes at them
>>1325196Summon the explody's.
Have the moat of comfy slimes rise up to greet them all at once.
>>1325196Basically use as many enemies as you can throw at them in raid mode and make things super hard. Anything less will be a waste.
>>1325196...no seriously, though get Ms. Bloops the FUCK out. These guys are basically Punch Wizard on roids.
>>1325196>>1325214>>1325296Alright, I threw all the runes we had into one rune slimes.>>1325269I'm not sure how that'd help. I don't think I can set preference either.>>1325270Good idea, it's getting kinda cramped in the entryway but I'll throw some in the back.What's the wizard one doing?1/?
>>1325319SWARM THE WIZARD ONE
>>1325319Well... shit.>>1325214>>1325303Well at least Ms. Bloops should still be in her-
>>1325319Have the slimes throw each other or pieces of each other at the wizard.
>>1325325GEEK THE MAGE FIRST
>>1325332WHY?Ugh. No one would attack a sleeping slime like that right?3/5?
>>1325343Silent Adventurers would.
>>1325343Tell bloops to wake up before she dies!
>>1325343Right?What's that weird floating thing?
>>1325355LOOT THE BLOOPS!
>>1325319Don't go easy on them, on contrady go as hard as you can because they will destroy everything and steal everything.
>>1325355Shit. I guess this is a rescue mission now.Okay, damage control. Comfy moat next. What do we do? I can't rune those frozen slimes until they dethaw.
>>1325365See if you can get that floating censored dong to shoot syrup at Lambknight.
>>1325355Activate NIGHTMARE MODE!
>>1325365Have Curi constantly multiply and send slimesThe toughest she canNonstop zerg rush
...the FUCK. Okay, okay. Comfy moat probably won't do much. It's a bit early to state, but honestly? Knight/Lily might get ganked if they try to do their intro/solo thing again. We and they should be ready for it. In the meantime, business as usual, but ratchet up the HP and difficulty. We still need more detail on how they fight before we can really get things tailored well.Remember, annoying as they are...they are STILL paying customers.Remain professional, powerful, if with haste.
>>1325380>Nightmare ModeYou mean active SUPER ULTRA MS. BLOOPS MODE TURBO HYPER FIGHTING EDITION: THE NEW CHALLENGERS!
Seriously, guys, I don't want to lose Bloops any more than you do, but we need to tightrope walk this. We do have a rep we want to build up, especially with sluthorns probably watching our every move.
>>1325389They are high level if we don't go NIGHYMARE MODE on them the dungeon will just be too easy. Is basically Punch Wizard x10. A easy dungeon is a bad dungeon for them. They aren't beginners.Oh and make sure the Bosses drop loot and that they need to give Miss Bloops back to get a key.
>>1325411I'm not saying to give them an EASY dungeon. In fact I explicity recognized up >>1325303 that they're Punch Wizard on roids.What I'm saying is that although we DO need to push things, we need to keep it just shy of unfair. Which, vindictive as we can be, is often a hard line to determine.
>>1325425They can easily beat one rune monsters. And we need to get Miss Bloops back. Offering to trade a key for her works so does having way too many enemies. And is our human minion attending the shop with that NPC sign yet?
>>1325365>>1325380>>1325391It's already in Raid Mode SP! I don't know about any other modes! I didn't know about THIS mode!>>1325454I sent Archiver to wake Alex up but it'll be a bit before she can get in position. I"m having her wake everyone up actually. Apparently that alarm only goes off in my room. We'll be fixing that.>>1325374I don't know what that thing is.>>1325387Curi's spawnss have to stay near her.>>1325411>>1325454That key idea is good. I'll talk to the Carpenter and Dungeoneer to see what we can whip up.>>1325389>Lambknight tries to jump across on the rope and immediately falls to her doom.Uh... I think that's the first time in a while that anyone's actually died in this room...>Larromage conjures a forcefield and a magic bridge to carry her across the moat. The panel to stop this pops up and immediately breaks. Larromage smiles like she knew that was coming.Well.. I guess that's one way to get around the no flying thing. Fixing that panel is going to be so expensive...>Larromage turns around and looks into the pit expectantly after dismissing her magic.Why is she? Her friend is dead right? Why am I not getting the "hero killed" alert?>After a minute a dark fluffy shape rises out of the pit followed by what looks like all the comfy slimes pushing and fighting to cuddle it and thus pushing her out of the pit.Is she... covered in black fluff? Why is she covered in black fluff? Can she grow it at will.>Larromage takes out an electric shaver and hands it over to Lambknight who begins to shave off all the fluff.I guess this is as good a time as any to go over the functions for Raid SP-Mode.1/2
>>1325606Did.. did Lambknight out-comfy the comfy slimes?
>>1325606Next time that lamb uses fluff, set it in fire.
>>1325633I think she did. I kinda want to feel it now.>>1325635I'll make a note to see if we can do that.>>1325606So apparently since SPs are so strong most adventurers have a bit of a grudge against them. Or they just want to fight them. Either way when Raid SP Mode is engaged we can temporarily hire available adventurers to add to the dungeon as mobs. They lose nothing if they die, but if they win and the dungeon wins they get paid.We're out of gold though. We'll have to convince people who'd want to fight SPs for a cut of the loot from the SPs or who just want to fight, period.Also, it's still 4AM. There's only one hero on the radar... I can try calling others but it'll take time for them to arrive and I might need to wait for them to wake up.Should I change anything in the labyrinth before they go in. Right now it's just got wandering explodeys in it and oil everywhere.
>>1325652Who can we hire? This is important!
>>1325652Buff Metal Slime. Make him a Platinum King Jewel Slime. That'll show 'em.
>>1325652Flood that bitch with oil and lava and explody, let's see her out fluff them when the fluff is on fire.
>>1325687Hire them to take care of this menace!
>>1325652Golem and psychic. Basically anybody who was pretty chill and also dangerous as fuck.
>>1325687Hire her. She is the best
>>1325687Oh geeez...well its a start. Bring her in and see who else you can bring in for extra muscle
>>1325687Sure. We could use all the bodies we can throw at these two right now.Replace the oil in the room with oil slimes and move the explodeys to the next room. Make sure the oil slimes scream in really loud agony when they're ignited.
>>1325687Doesn't she have contacts with a whole bunch of other adventurers?
>>1325652Say she gets first pick of the loot and an anual spa pass! But don't offer her more than half the loot.
>>1325762>fan slimeI GET IT
>>1325762>>1325786Geisha slime, for all your tea ceremony related needs. We tried to add the mske up but she is a slime, it didn't stick!
>>1325762Cute. Maybe she's a visiting dignitary from that slime kingdom in the far east!
>>1325862Fancy/Law? She is a dignitary, after all.
>>1325652Demonologist calls the Warrior and starts the summoning process."Hello?""Hello, I'm the Demonologist calling on behalf of Slimecrown Citadel. I'm calling to offer you a chance to win a year long pass to our signature spas as well as serveral other glorious prizes."Oh jees."WOW! Alright, sign me up. Whatever it takes I want it. What do I have to do?" the warrior answers.I always thought people were exaggerating about people who fall for phone scams, but here we are. We didn't even have to haggle.The Warrior is summoned. After this dungeon run her memories will be altered by the SP Mode to reflect the proper world view. I'm having Demo try and call Golem and Psion but they haven't answered so far."Yeah, most adventurers won't get up until at least dawn. I was just up to max my gains!" the warrior tells you.Should I dispatch her to the labyrinth now? She has friendly fire disabled so nothing in our dungeon will hurt her too badly.1/2
>>1325890Fancy+Water+FanFan Slime, servant sent as a present to the Queen slime from a distant Kingdom in the middle east. Some say she is a spy but she makes delicious tea and is very polite and formal.
>>1325911Hmmm. Something to keep in mind, I think.
>>1325910Have her team up with a Boss? Her alone can't beat those two.
>>1325910Which she'll probably need since I just released Mirelle and the magma slimes into the labyrinth. >The oil-runed room immediately explodes into burning flames turning the entire maze into a labyrinth straight from the depths of hell.Not that that's slowing the SPs down. Larromage appears to be casting some kind of channeled spell that grants them fire immunity. If we can disrupt it they should get burned! >Lambknight gets tired of this maze and just starts punching down wallsThat... Those are hardened walls! How is she doing that?Should I send the warrior in to help or just let Mirelle and the magma slimes handle it?
>>1325910put her with a boss.Suprised I caught this in action
>>1325929MAQ and the other Audit quest are also running.
>>1325927Because we didn't buy the unbreakable wall upgrade since we keep changing the dungeon. Most classic dungeons have unbreakable walls but changing anything in them besides monsters items and chests is a pain.
>>1325927Yes. Warrior, do something so incredibly dumb - I mean, brilliant - that the Larromage is distracted and catches fire.Can we enchant those walls to cause damage when she punches them? Stuff them with explodeys, make them grow spikes, etc.
>>1325943Anode can die for all I care and what other Audit quest?
>>1325996the "cannon" one>>1325188
>>1326014was lurking it in already, I tend to pop up when I see something I know/can commit on
>>1325996>Anode can die for all I careWho?
>>1325927>Warrior runs into the maze and immediately attacks the first person she sees."Victory!" she shouts....I think Lambknight just punched her so hard that most of her armor flew off. Aaand now her head is stuck in one of my viewing portals...>Warrior has died!Demo says she'll respawn in a little while like any dungeon mob. For now it looks like the spell Larromage was using wasn't channeled after all. She's still fireproof.>Lambknight ignitesOh she was channeling it for her friend, that makes sense. Should I have Mirelle and the magma slimes pressure them further? I think the mage is about to cast something again.
>>1326058MHK is running right now. Anode is the protagonist and the GM mentioned he can die at any moment if the players mess up or get a low roll.
>>1326133KILL THE LAMB AND DISTRACT THE MAGE! ALL THE FIRE ON THE LAMB, ROASTED LAMB TASTES GOOD!Ehh sorry. As a general rule is better to take out the mage first but the Lambknight is way too strong.
>>1326133Distract Larromage with his one weakness: Saber Figures!Then we can beat him!
Pressure on. Spread out to avoid AOE/chain attacks.
>>1326133So is this an April the first joke or what?
>>1326253Nah man, this is a legit quest. Look up Audit Quest on suptg.
>>1326253Nope, this is totally 1000% canon.
>>1326263>>1326269>>1326272So Mary had a little Lamb?
>>1326286I here it has a nice fleece...
>>1326286You just had to go and say it.
>>1326133Alright, I've sent the Dungeoneer and Carpenter to see if they can make something that'll force them to give up Ms. Bloops. It'll be in the slime challenge room>Mirelle and the magma slimes rush toward Larromage and Lambknight being careful not to group up too closely. They do what they can to distract her but with her fire resistance prevents them from damaging her.>Larromage casts a spell to lower all the nearby temperatures to comfy 90 degrees.1/2
>>1326383>This kills the magma slimesWell, at least we managed to burn the knight somewhat. Warrior isn't respawned yet so I can't think of anything else to throw at them here. Should we disable Cleric Plant's healing? Anything else we should modify?
>>1326414Make healing more costly, to drain them of money.
>>1326414no, just ramp up the price of cleric plant healing to the limits that the dungeon will allow.
>>1325927Okay waltzing through the challenges is one thing, but breaking terrain? That's just rude.It's time.Operation: BULLYINGBegin harassing Larromage over the loudspeaker."Your costume sucks and is terrible!""Your spells are bland.""You're cheating a challenging dungeon, you're not even playing a game, you may as well just be watching a cutscene you scrub.""your art sucks!""did your mom stitch that robe for you? either way, you should probably toss it into the magma, and save yourself both shame and dishonor."
>>1326414Disable healing and put a sign that says "NIGHTMARE MODE ON!"
>>1326422call their waifu's shit!
>>1326383Just make a box that says 'Insert Bloops, Receive Key.'>>1326414Set Cleric Plant's healing to 'Undead' mode so it deals damage. It's time for Cleric Plant's boss mode to come out again!
>>1326456Nope Cleric plant won't do nothing to these guys. Just tell her to go to the Spa.Yes in the Box.
>>1326486If Cleric Plant isn't capable of doing anything to these guys, then we should just fucking forfeit now. Did you SEE him in action? And that was with one less rune than now!
>>1326515Did you see these guys in action? They would tear away the shop for stuff!
>>1326414>Cleric plant bristles as the Silent Protagonists enter. She prepares to give them her best tentacle plant horror routine but before she can they practially teleport in front of her, eyes sparkling. Lambknight holds out a book and a pen."What?" Cleric plant asks. "Oh you want me to sign it? Um. I guess that's alright."What's going on?"No, I'm afraid I can't heal today, I'm supposed to- Oh I don't know. Let me ask.">Cleric plant sends a message asking if the spa is still openWhat the hell? How is she talking to them?>Cleric plant informs you that shopkeepers and NPCs who have to interact with SPs temporarily gain the ability to read the minds of the SPs when out of combat.
>>1326567>No healing, go to the spa.
>>1326567so there NOT asshole's. good to know. also yeah sure they can go to the spa.it's cute how they like our dungeon to.
>>1326567It's open, sure, why not?
>>1326567Well, they are fans. Spa is open for them.
>>1326567>Tell them to please don't break the walls. We cannot afford indestructible walls yet, too expensive.
>>1326567"Yes, the spa is open," Healer Plant tells them. "It's just over there. By the way, if you could please avoid damaging the walls we would appreciate it."Guys I just checked with the Carpenter. The walls in the maze are supposed to be nigh-unbreakable so we don't have to fix them every time an explodey goes off. I'm scared. I don't have to show up at the end of their run do I?The Archiver nods.Crap.>Lamb-tan heads for the spa. Larromage gestures a bit."Yes, Ruth's Batting Challenge is through that door.">More gestures."No, thank you. I hope you enjoy it. I'll send your friend along once she comes back."Okay it looks like Larromage is taking on Ruth's room next. Anything we should mix in? She looks kind of noodly.
>>1326715knuckle balls and sliders, the good shit.
>>1326715>Anything we should mix in? She looks kind of noodly.Meatballs. They go well with noodles.
>>1326715The noodle is a lie. Mix in anti-magic balls so she doesn't get to pull more wizard crap.
>>1326715>Add a "NO MAGIC!" rule. >Add a "Breaking walls reduces your chances of getting loot by 50% rule."
>>1326715Tell Ruth to go all out, no easy balls.
>>1326765No start easy to nightmare and go ten rounds.
>>1326715>Add a "NO QUESTING" rule.>Write off that room and its inhabitants on your taxes as a work expense.
>>1326715>Lily's bring her A-game. Which, it seems, was rather pointless because this girl is way too *ahem* magical to do anything resembling a sport, which baseball technically does.>After some time Larromage gives up and erects a magical barrier, then when the first anti-magic ball breaks it she raises and anti-anti-magic barrier followed by a magic barrier. >Ruth continues to hit balls at the mage to no avail while the mage begins to cast something that looks rather ominous"Archiver, can you tell what kind of magic that is?"The archiver checks the screens."I would guess necromancy. Though I can't tell what type.">Larromage has summoned the spirit of a great baseball player. Larro mage has been possessed by the spirit of a great baseball player.Uh... guys? Should I do something here or just let this roll?
>>1326918They seem to be going with the theme. Let it go.
>>1326918no.two legends shall face off and play baseball. that is all that needs to be done. watch and bask in the soon to be epic clash.
>>1326918We told you to add a "NO MAGIC RULE" Mary!
>>1326918Play dirty. Summon the spirit of Christopher Robin to possess Ruth.
>>1326918OK then, then if Larromage misses any 3 strikes she's out of here
>>1326918As long as they don't break any walls, either the dungeon's or those separating this reality from the neighboring ones, it should be fine.
>>1326918Add a "NO GHOSTS or NECROMANCY" rule.
>>1326973I agree with adding a "Breaking walls reduces your chances of getting loot by 50%" rule.And really you don't even need to beat Ruth to get three keys. Let's punish the necromancer! Specially since she used a Shaman spell since no dead body was nearby!
>>1327007Can we rune the bat? I'd like to rune the bat.
>>1326981>>1326946That has to be done BEFORE they enter the room and pick up a bat!>>1326961Death and taxes may be the only sure thing in this world but power over one does not give me power over the other.>>1326932>>1326940>>1326963>>1326973>What follows is the most exciting game of baseball to ever be played with two players in a room totally unequipped for properly playing the game. They do hit balls back and forth for quite a while in an entertaining fashion. >Thus it was more interesting than any baseball game ever. Which also made it slightly less entertaining than any other game which is referred to as a sport. A record best for the sport of baseball!>After finally tiring out Ruth gives Larro mage a hug and the key. Larromage appears to still be possessed by the ghost.By the way Warrior respawned while they were playing, and Lambknight is heading down from the spa soon.1/2
>>1327026To top it off Demonologist managed to get a hold of Psion."Well, I can't say I'm not interested, but I'm afraid I sent my magic hat out to be polished. I'd come but I wouldn't be able to do much more than provide color commentary. My hat gets back in a few hours if you're still running then."It looks like Lambknight and Larromage will be taking on the slime fighting room next. That's where the Ms. Bloops return thing was supposed to be installed. Anything I should change in there? The Warrior is up and ready to fight again."VICTORY!"She's actually getting kind of annoying. I want to let them gank her again.
>>1327016We already did.
>>1327026AND WE HAD A VOTE FOR THST YOU BLIND LAMB! HERE!>>1326758
>>1327062If you will look at the picture she is holding a bat.
>>1327067Necromancy is magic, she used magic. You are a blind Lamb.
>>1327026Tell Ruth to kiss themwe shall create superior magic ghost slimesportsmen
>>1327067Oh and she also used magic barriers. That's magic too.
>>1327076>>1327087the point is "before they enter the room"
>>1327093Lamd is a cheater who cheats. They entered the room by going by the spa option! Hence giving players no choice to change Ruth rules. So rigging the game because it was an op mague vs a baseball playing monster. There was no indication beforehand that the mage was going to not go to the spa. This is rigged to hell and back.
>>1327042Don't you have an older hat, Psion? come on, we know how much adventurers hoard this stuff.
>>1327076Guys, by all means keep voting if you'd like to do anything with heroes you're ordering and make changes for the coming room. I'm going to call it here for the night though as I'm suddenly quite drained. I'll start up again probably tomorrow at some point.
>>1327042After Bloops is returned, teleport her away and send in the key, inside a random minion. Have the slimes play keep away, and don't stop sending in slimes till I say so.
>>1327042Color commentary is fine.Also, she probably knows more about killing silent protagonists than us, so that would help a lot.
>>1327201...Is that the Dungeon God?
>>1327201Ok give warrior a key that Ms Bloops can use to let them into the basement and equip her with an army of Explodys. Now that Ruth has had her game we have no further use for them right?
>>1327201Starting again right as soon as I finish this post...
>>1333622>>1327300Alright, the Psion says she'll come down just as soon as she gets done telling her hat polisher where to send the hat when it's done being polished. She's not going to charge us for the "color commentary." She's never actually fought an SP before though.>>1327083>Ruth kisses the Larromage, and as expected the ghost rushed into the slime, whereupon she immediately collapsed into a particularly thick puddle because the ghost has no idea how to run a slime body.I'm not sure if this makes the problem worse or not.>Lamb-tan enters and upon seeing the glow in Ruth's eyes immediately unleashes dozens of punches."Ora ora ora oraoraoraoraoraoraora!">Mary looks at the Psion who has just arrived."Why did you do that?""It seemed appropriate."Well, despite all the holes the Lambknight punched into Ruth they all missed the core so she's still fine. Wait, why is the ghost floating away with a halo and angel wings."Oh, because the slime is made of only water runes."Ugh.1/2
>>1333691 Alright it looks like the SPs are making their way toward the slime fountain room now.>The invader alarm sounds again.Why is that going off again?>Mary checks the entrance view screens and sees someone entering."Hello? I was wondering if I could get a solo run in? Are you open again?"You guys will never guess who just showed up on the "hirable hero" list. Should I hire him or just have Alex send him home? What should I offer him?
>>1333694Limited edition smug lily figure. Hmm. Wonder if he could eat the ghost.
>>1333694Hire him. We need all the help possible
>>1333691>>1333767Okay, but I need some idea what to offer him. Maybe he'd just like fighting a silent protagonist? >>1333718Something we have. We don't have time to make new figures.Wait..."Dungeoneer, we don't have any limited edition Smug Lily figures do we?""No, but that's a great idea boss.">>1327215Oh hey it looks like the SPs figured out the fountain puzzle that dungeoneer and the carpenter set up. "How does that thing work anyway?" Mary asks."It's a weight switch. When they put Ms Bloops on it she gets sucked down through a pipe and the fight starts.">They examine the fountains for some time then has a prolonged gesturing match among them."They're disagreeing about putting Ms. Bloops on the fountain. Apparently they wanted to take her home," Psion explains."You speak Silent Protagonist?" "It's a standard skill for people who might join a Silent Protagonist's party.">Lambknight grudgingly puts Ms. Bloops on the fountain. The room rumbles and as Ms. Bloops is sucked away to a safe place the slimes in the room spawn.Okay guys I put the key inside one of the slimes you suggested, but I think I forgot how big the normal slime in this room was. How should I have them fight? The big slime heals all damage until the fountains are destroyed.>>1329742>As soon as Mary explains what the key was for the Warrior runs off to "avenge herself."Okay, so I'm expecting her to die any s-. There we go. She'll respawn in a bit. So I still need things to offer the Wizard. It looks like the hero list hasn't updated but hopefully demonologist will get a hold of golem soon
>>1333839Be ready to throw in other slimes to support.https://youtu.be/KnnHprUGKF0
>>1333839Can the big slime envelope the fountains? That way the only they have to wade through the slime and outdamage the healing process.
>>1333839The slime need to be very agresive. He can heal any damage.
>>1333839I mean, if you want nightmare mode for this slime boss, just have other random slimes gattai with him in sequence. Mud slime, Magic Slime, Plant Slime, Psion Slime. Bonus points if Mega Magic Slime has a fancy wizard hat.
>>1333839Whip up a whirlpool inside the giant slime, making attempts to wade in and secure the key futile, as well as deflecting attacks with centripetal energy. Uh, be sure to have a giant barf bag ready at the conclusion of the fight.
>>1333839>Without a word spoken the two protagonists split the task of the room between them. Lambknight immediately begins dealing with the little slimes.>>1333886Uh, guys I'm trying to get the little one to "gattai" with the big slime, but Lambknight keeps killing them.>>1333864I'm adding them as fast as I can but she just keeps splattering them! The lucky ones are making her swing twice!>>1333871>The big slime moves to cover one of the fountains. Larro mage cuts it in half with a laser.>Larromage looks pretty smug>The big slime begins healing.>Larromage casts something but nothing seems to happen.Did that spell do anything?
>>1334025Luckily there is a slime barrier on the outside, but that's it. I recommend funneling slimes through the fountains that are already feeding into the mega slime. That way, they get rapid fired into him. MAGIC MUST DEFEAT MAGIC!
>>1334025Envelop the Larromage? That way mages own attack will also strike them?
>>1334025Larromage is trying to destroy the entire dungeon rather than face defeat. Duck and cover! Get under a table or something.
>>1334061I'm pretty sure that violates guild laws. Giant slime, pick up Larromage and throw them at the ceiling.
>>1334025Pray Mary. Pray.It was a meteor spell.
>>1334108>>1334079>>1334061SHE CAST A WHAT?! WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE!>>1334045NO THERE ISN'T! THAT WON'T BE INSTALLED UNTIL AFTER THE RENOVATIONS!>Larromage remembers that she promised Healer Plant she wouldn't break any more walls and cancels her spell in a huff.Is it over? Are we dead?"She must have cancelled the spell," Psion said, crawling out from under the desk with Mary.Oh thank my various gods.What now? Insert the slimes via the fountain? That should work. It'll clog the fountain for a bit, but it only really needs one for the heal buff.>A string slime is spawned directly inside the big slime."Oh, that may have been a mistake," Psion says, seeing what you're going for."Why?"1/3
>>1334192>The big slime feels the string slime within in it. Fusion begins.>The big slime trembles with unbridled power as its powers increase, the string slime dissolving within it to become a part of it. To create a greater slime then each would be individually.>THE BIG SLIME EVOLVESHuh... it looks kind of like a big ball of yarn."This isn't going to end well," the Psion comments.>The yarn slime is confused by its new form.>The yarn slime has discovered its string tentacles! Tentacle strings fly at the pouting Larromage. Larromage looks disheartened."Nooo!" Mary screams, "We're not an R-rated dungeon! We're going to lose our sponsorship!""I wouldn't worry about it. The yarn slime has a large weakness.""What?">All of the string tentacles are gathered in one grab.2/3
>>1334203"It's not as hard to grab and break as a pure water slime.">Lambknight carefully removes all the give from the strings in her hands.Wait, she isn't actually strong enough to->Lambknight starts swinging the yarn slime around like a giant hammer throw ball and chain. The yarn slime slams into pillars and fountains, destroying them and damaging itself.>Larromage can see where this is going and is preparing.Okay, I can see where this is going. We should prepare for the next phase. Are we still sending in the monk slime? "Ma'am?" Demonologist interrupts."I've been talking with the Punch Wizard. He's agreed to help us in exchange for a chance to fight the SPs.""Oh. Alright then. Good work Demonologist."Okay we also have the punch wizard now. Should I send him in with the monk slime? I think we've exhausted most of our basic slimes until they cool down. And the warrior's respawn timer is getting huge from being beaten so badly in such short amounts of time.
Yeah pair them up.
>>1334217Slow night tonight. Hold on to your pants this next part will take a bit.
>>1334293“If you’re going to attack them, I recommend you do it now,” Psion tells you, after you give the Wizard his marching order.“Why?”“They’re posing and triumphant. There guard will never be lower.”>Mary nods at the psion’s words. In the dungeon the SPs are indeed posing. Posing so hard they don’t even notice the two dark figures approaching them.1/many
>>1334530>In a flash both figures sweep past the heroes, snatching their hard won second key. >Larromage and Lambknight turn with murder in their eyes toward the monk slime and the punch wizard. >The monk holds up the key before absorbing it. >The two pairs of warriors lock gazes and in a moment divide the fights between them.>Larromage vs Monk Slime>Lambknight vs Punch Wizard>Larromage leaps into action, firing off bolts of destructive mana as she tries to put some distance between her and the monk slime.“Child’s play,” the monk slime burbles.>The monk slime swats down those mana bolts it can’t dodge and then in an instant closes with Larromage and stops her from casting anything more robust.“Tch,” Larromage clicks.“Are you both just going to translate like that the entire time?” Mary asks the Psion and Curi, who are both watching over her shoulder.“Did you want us to stop?”2/many
>>1334532Going to have to call it a night here. My hand hurts too much to continue and even if I did continue what I planned is too much to make you guys wait for tonight. I'll get back to this after I rest and resume tomorrow.Sorry, my inexperience with drawquests is showing because my inner drama queen demanded cool pictures.Thanks for hanging out guys.
>>1334540It's been worth it! These are adorable.
>>1334532Try and get a Royal Slime Jelly(the slime transformation potion Bulk Mage used against Curi) to Bulk mage, or to Warrior when she respawns.If you can get one to Bulk Mage, try and convince him to fuse with Monk Slime and let him pilot the resulting fusion.If Psion thinks she can counter her need for a helmet by fusing with multiple psionic slimes since they don't need one, give her a Royal Jelly and have her fuse with multiple psionic slimes.
>>1334540Is Mary later going to find lore theory videos about "why summonable allies are now enemies"?
>>1334677I’m not sure it would be safe to have a person in slime jelly form fuse with another slime. Can he unfuse? Would it even have the same effects as slime fusions?Also that room isn’t rated for-“Demonologist how many runes would you say the punch wizard is when he’s in slime form using the royal jelly?”“At least three,” Demonologist answers, “Two water for the jelly and at least one for the wizard’s own skills.”Okay, not the room is not rated for a 6 rune monster being in it. These guys have done enough property damage already, but if you want to send it down we can try.>>1335048According to the Archiver most SPs are willing to ignore any enemy that doesn’t identify itself as a random mob with no lore background. Since the Warrior isn’t saying anything she’s probably going to be considered a random warrior enemy. As for the Punch Wizard…>>1334540The wizard and Lambknight stand off facing each other.“I have long looked forward to the day I’d get the chance to test myself again one of you so called ‘legendary’ heroes. Now it appears that day has finally come.”>Lambknight just looks bored. Mary looks at psion but the hero just shrugs.“She’s not saying anything.”>Punch wizard appears to becoming angry.“Are you so high above me that I am not even worthy of your acknowledgement? Then I will have to teach you, NOT TO LOOK DOWN ON OTHERS!”>The punch wizard casts his fist magics and rushes Lambknight.“STRONG LEFT!”“ILLUSIONARY UPPER!”>Lambknight blocks the giant left fist, but the right fist weaves around her guard and only becomes solid before it comes into contact with her chin. Lambknight rocks back with the punch but still says nothing, staring quietly at the wizard.“DON’T YOU LOOK DOWN ON ME!” he roars, “TASTE THIS! A TECHNIQUE PASSED DOWN FROM THE GREATEST PUNCH WIZARD OF ALL TIME! CONSECUTIVE NORMAL PUNCHES!”>The wizard throws out a combo that chains one punch into another so smoothly that the sound of the blows falling sounds like one loud sustained attack with no lulls or breaks. Lambknight appears unable to do anything but block what she can and take other hits.>Larromage is knocked into the air by monk slime and in midair magic circles drawn with unknowable symbols are drawn in the air.“Oh that’s bullshit,” psion cries out.>Mary looks at her.“You have to mentally draw each one of those, and if you lose your concentration they fall apart. How could she possibly draw accurate circles WHILE BEING HIT,” psion complains.“I thought you couldn’t use magic,” Mary says.“I have magic user friends. We get into arguments about who'd beat who in a fight,” the psion grumbles1/2
>>1336972“Old Slime, you are beginning to annoy me,” Psion translates for the Larromage.>Larromage’s circles fire and innacurate lasers strafe the room, slicing monk slime into pieces.“What would you know of annoyance, you child who plays at being a hero and knows nothing of our duty?” the monk slime burbles, pulling itself back together rapidly and still managing to keep the Larromage pressured in the process.>The Larromonk’s flight spell appears to run out and she slides along the ground away from the monk slime who is following close behind her.Huh, I think there’s a bug with the display.“Where’d the stars on her robe go? And her staff is different,” Dungeoneer comments.“You noticed that before her missing hat? It’s almost like- Oh crap she did an equipment change. She has an expanded inventory!” Psion yells.“So?”“She can swap equipment and access gear with just an instant to access it! She might have more than one class of abilities to use if she changes gear to match!”“Now feel the weight of duty! NINE PILLARS BUDDHA’S SLIMY PALM!” the monk slime burbles in rage.>Larromonk gives the scariest smile Mary has ever seen.“The only duty whose weight is worth bearing is THE DUTY TO CRUSH EVIL! RUYI JINGU BANG” Psion identifies what Larromonk is communicating to the monk.>The Larromonk’s staff extends explosively. >The monk slime tries to deflect the attack with his own, but it pierces through and then through his core and beyond.Okay, uh punch wizard definitely can’t handle them both at the same time. Did you want to try sending the royal jelly down or should we just prep the next room?
>>1336989You are right psion. That's bullshit
>>1336972>I’m not sure it would be safe to have a person in slime jelly form fuse with another slime. Can he unfuse? It's weird, you're not the first dungeonmaster to ask this. But the others didn't test it either...>“Oh that’s bullshit,” psion cries out.Everything about these two is bullshit, psion. Hopefully we'll still be able to beat them and prove cheaters never prosper.Prep the royal jelly!
>>1336989We could always try emptying out the rooms ahead of him and set a throne room with a trash mob and useless loot and hope he misses the rest of the real dungeon.
>>1336989Prep the next room.If we're gonna throw something big at them, it better be in a room that can unleash that power.
>>1336989>>1337066"Are you even going to fight back?! Is this all a legendary hero amounts to? SUPER SERIOU-">Punch Wizard regains conscious a second later. Midflight. With a fist shaped indentation in his chest."What?!">Punch Wizard hits the wall. Hard. Mary uses one of her Raid SP powers to teleport a fresh dose or Royal Jelly to punch wizard. The vial it's in is labelled with instructions on what to do."Grr. Fine.">The wizard crawls over to the rapidly dissolving remains of the monk slime. Lambknight is walking over to him sedately. He downs his potion and touches the goo. >Fusion begins.I hope this works guys. >>1337077>>1337123So we should just unlock the way to the boss room?It looks like they'll do "So You Think You Can Slime" next. Should we do something to it? It's pretty challenging as is."SPs tend to like minigames and challenges," Psion tells Mary, "After fighting loses any challenge they have to find fun where they can and minigames are the best place for that.
>>1337239Fun? Fuck 'em. Turn So you Think You Can Slime up to Ultraviolence Ironman. Miss a beat, start the song again. Also Explody groupies are mobbing the dance floor.
>>1337271they will still enjoy it like that i think.
>>1337271Why do you hate fun?
>>1337303You have a 'fun'ny way of spelling SP.
>>1337313Everyone should be allowed to have fun.
>>1337329No. I forbid you to have fun.
Considering Slime Knight and Lily can still fight fine when fused, and they have more than five runes Mage will probably not be too weak.I doubt he'll be as strong as he would in a boss room since Lily Slimeknight isn't as strong as Curi but he'll definitely be pretty strong.
>>1337347I'm having fun in another tab RIGHT NOW, and there is nothing you can do about it.
>>1337354How dare you. Reported.
>>1337367Not if I report you for killing fun first!
>>1337239Send in a small batch of distraction slimes and pull back our newly minted slime punch wizard to a new room, he's got to be at least miniboss tier now.
Started arting a while ago but didn't have any throwaways ready. Sorry.
>>1337411>The light clears and a mighty figure steps forth. Graced with the shiniest head, and the fullest beard of all slimes. A halo marks its divinity As it steps forward an extra pair of arms grow from its back. "I see now. There's so much more to punching that I had believed. It's beautiful. No words to describe it. They should have sent Bruce Lee," the demigod slime burbles.1/2
>>1337505>Lambknight stops to consider her new opponent. For a moment Larromage, back in her robes and wizard hat, steps over to join but Lambknight waves her away."You should let her help you," the demigod slime burbles, "It is the only way you have a chance at victory. For you see, I am only half of this dungeon. And thus I'm only barely constrained by its rules. A boss room would only spell both of your dooms.">Lambknight taps her foot impatiently."So be it. I am absolved of guilt in this.">The slime launches four giant fist attacks. Lambknight's eyes widen slightly at the sight of them before she is picked up and bashed into the wall by them. Guys I hope these two drop a lot of money because that's going to be expensive to fix.>Lambknight has made a Lambknight shaped impression in the wall. Her head lolls forward and her helmet falls off, then imbeds itself in the ground as its ponderous weight becomes apparent.Wait, how heavy is that armor she's wearing?>Lambknight looks up at the Demigod of Punch and sighs."Alright then." Psion translates.Okay, I've opened all the doors between this room and the Boss Room. Should I have the Demigod Slime guide them there or just try to finish it here? Anything else I should do? It really does look like the Larromage plans to sit this out."The Wizard was Lambknight's opponent. Even if she wasn't into fighting him it probably rankles her pride to have to have her friend help beat him, even if he changed form," Warrior says.Wait, when did she respawn?
>>1337744>Lambknight discards her armor, every piece seems to sink deeper into the floor."STOP DAMAGING MY DUNGEON!" Mary screams."They can't hear you boss.""I KNOW IT MAKES ME FEEL BETTER!">Lambknight is completely divested of equipment, reduced to a tank top, the bandages supporting her arms, and her pants. She adopts a fighting pose facing the Demigod."Come." Psion translates."I got that, thanks." Mary replies."VERY WELL!" the demigod slime burbles.1/3
>>1337857FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT
>>1337857>The demigod moves to throw more giant fists when Lambknight blurs into existence right in front of and below it."What!?" it bubbles in surprise.>Lambknight's fist lashes out and the Demigod is launched skyward up and through the roof of the dungeon."Ho, you think I'm less dangerous here, you are mistaken!" the slime roars preparing to fire punches down back into the hole in the roof if Lambknight follows.>Lambknight kicks the slime back down toward the dungeon and in through the ceiling.>Mary is no longer responsive after seeing the damage and imagining the costs.>Lamb-tan lands next to the hole she punched into the boss room. She takes a knee and looks down into the hole. "Ready to give up now?" Psion translates for the people who aren't in a money related coma."NEVER!" burbles the slime, "If this is your full power than I shall merely have to triumph over IT as well!">Lambknight looks confused. She stands up and takes a pose."This isn't my full power," psion translates dutifully, "THIS IS MY FUL- OH SHIT EVERYONE GET D-"[ERROR TELEMETRY LOST- ATTEMPTING TO RESTORE CONNECTION...]2/3
>>1337927I SAW THAT, YOU CAN'T HIDE THE TRUTH FROM ME
>>1337942"Alright, walk me through what happened while I was out again," Mary says to the archiver."Well, after she destroyed the boss room and all the adjacent rooms, Lambknight met up with Larromage at the cafe. They argued about whether or not to continue, since, according to Psion, SPs can't stand the chance of losing so if they run into something stronger than they expected in a dungeon they'll typically retreat and grind more experience until they can beat the dungeon on their own terms. Apparently Lambknight still wanted to do "So you think you can slime" but Larromage felt they should come back after levelling. Larromage won the argument, they left a diamond worth 50kG in the tip jar and they teleported back to wherever they came from," Archiver explains."Okay. What happened to the diamond?""Well after most of the supporting walls were destroyed the dungeon was dangerously close to just collapsing in on itself, so we-""We?""Dungeoneer made the executive decision to hawk the diamond and make emergency repairs.""Which cost?""The entire value of the diamond minus enough to buy a cup of coffee and a hot cocoa."Mary nods."I'm going back to bed. Get into the records from today and delete them. If anyone ever speaks of this day or mentions the words Silent Protagonist to me again they are fired.""Um, what about the people we hired.""Pay them, mindwipe them, and send them home. Standard contract termination. Is the wizard still fused with the slime?""No, he respawned normally.""Good. Good night, Archiver.""G-good night Mary."
>>1338001>If anyone ever speaks of this day or mentions the words Silent Protagonist to me again they are fired."Hah, you can't fire me! I live on your head!
>>1338001Alright that's it. I'm done my hand hurts and my body hurts and I met all my goals. I hope you guys all had fun.I'll be back at my normal Rosaria Quest as soon as I forget the pain from the last couple days.
>>1338021"Out of a cannon. Into Jeffrey."
>>1338053Do you really want us controlling Jeffrey?You saw what the Demon King was like and that was probably 75% us.If we were stuck with Jeffrey it wouldn't be very long before one of use pointed out to him he that he could dig his way out of the room.
>>1338041It was good and I liked it.
>wasn't able to follow previous threads>came back and dungeon is even more beautifulI'm still happy that the name Jeffrey stuck for Mr. Adventure-Rapist in the basement
>>1355097Be advised, this is Lambs dungeon, not Larro/Mary's.
>>1355465>Lamb's dungeonWho dat?
>>1356010Somebody who stole Larro's pen to doodle this quest for April fool's.
