    They place my box in front of the dragons' cave and retreat to the top of the mountain. I hear loud footsteps and feel the ground beneath me shake as something large (it's the dragon) approaches.

    Can you get any more descriptive than "weird"?
    Is it a good weird or a bad weird?

    Just walk in to the local healer's place and lay her on an empty bed. THEN you can tell them she needs help.
    After that stay by her side. Nobody would dare attack you while you're standing vigil in a healer's place, and once Silver is healed she'll keep them away.

    Oh, and when she wakes up keep your story straight: You were knocked off the cliff, your box was broken, and she was hurt pretty bad. You didn't see the others, but she needed a healer so you couldn't spend time searching for them. You borrowed her armor to hold you till you could get a new box, and brought her back to town.

    It's pretty important to have allies, you know. I know demons are always saying blah blah blah demons shouldn't have friends blah blah blah going against tradition blah blah, but that's a bunch of horseshit. Other demons say things like that so others will isolate themselves and be vulnerable prey.

    Silver probably had at least that much on her, so you can cover her medical treatment with her own money.

    You may not be doing this because she's your friend, but you SHOULD be. The other two were jerks, but Silver was actually looking out for you. She made sure you had some protection for the dragon job, and when it went pear-shaped she rushed to help you instead of the others.
    Because of her you got out of that clusterfuck with only nominal damage instead of dead, dead, and head trauma. Ten to one says she'll get you a replacement box, too.

    Be her friend. If for no other reason than because people treat their friends better. Hug her when she wakes up and tell her you're glad she's ok.

    It'll be so fucking awesome!

    "That'd be nice."

    SO: "Well how do you plan on doing that?"

    Crossbow and some light reinforcement work done to the chest, not a lot though since we still need to move the thing around.

    Legs would be one hell of a bonus.

    Then again if we got some magical propulsion like that we could probably go full on tank mode. Then there's the matter of how we'll pay for the damn thing.

    If there's a thing that i learned on /tg/ is that Treads are better than Legs

    If the box has wheels can you control them directly? Even if not a box with wheels is a good idea, do that and a light crossbow. Start simple and then build on it. Thicker box, get better weapons and get better at them.

    Propulsion is indeed the trickiest part. We need something that can drag us uphill without failing, be easily controlled and can stand up to a fight.

    Looks about right.

    It's tricky if we're limited to nonmagical things. But we aren't. Enchanted wheels is a go.

    We'll need some sort of beast of burden to cart the box around. I vote corgies

    Yes of course... Treads... Crossbows... Ballistas!
    The possibilities are limitless... But for this I need money.

    "Money. First I need to get money. Lot's of money. And this isn't about being a mimic. I need it to accomplish things."

    CO: "A goal? Goals are good. I'll help you Alalia. You stick with me and we'll make lots of money together. Sound good?"

    "Sounds good."

    Hehehe... Alalia the Mimic Queen. Alalia the Battle Mimic..
    This is going to be awesome.
