It seems that since I've decided to become the BEST MIMIC EVER I've been surrounded by nothing but trouble.
This time I even find myself in jail.Well... Treasury. But that's like jail for a mimic I guess.... I already ate all the gold here.
Mimic the trouble!
We need some context, here.
Your back! We thought you were dead!
>>19114069Close but not quite.>>19114054Well here's what happened...We basically got arrested on false charges.Well... Silver did at least. I was just shoved in here cause they thought I was a treasure chest that they couldn't open. The king found out about us finding out about his little plot and had us brought in. I've been in here about an hour and the door's locked soooo,I'm stuck.
>>19114110Right, is there an archive of all this somewhere?
>>19114119http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Mimic%20Quest this is all of it so far
>>19114110Well silver has thus far been pretty capable.But on the other hand, if we rescue her, we can prove we are deserving of more respect and riding in the cart next time.So what else is in this cell? Do we have our crossbow or any of our items.
Wait, when did this come back to /tg/ ?!?!
Is it red because of our darkvision or something? Also, examine the crack in the wall. You probably can pry it open, but you can probably see what's on the other side.
attack that crack in the wall! try to pull loose stones or hit it really hard.
well, looks like we're gonna kill a kinginvestigate the crack in the wall!
>>19114153Never left it hahahahaha.>>19114144Well yeah, course I'm gonna rescue the girl. She's too valuable to lose now. Anyway the good thing about being able to pretend to be a chest is that I get to keep all my cool shit unlike others who get locked away.Most of it may be a bit useless though. Still got it.1 Magic Crossbow of Infinite Bolts1 Flint and Steel154,003 Gold1 Dagger1 Healing Potion
>>19114208>>19114214>>19114221It is unusually red isn't it? There, fixed.As for the crack.. It's a simply matter to widen it a little with my AWESOME DAGGER.Hmm... That's as far as it'll go.I can see light from the other side and... Gold!?
>>19114208Shit, meant to say CAN'T pry it open.>Esterla MassstabCaptcha, are you trying to suggest something? 'Cause I'm feeling a tad uncomfortable with the implications.
use dagger on the gaps between stones around the crack. pry them loose.
>>19114240>That goldWell I suppose we'll be getting more upgrades soonCheck that crack! And we can potentially bribe guards with that gold as well.And what happened to our crown?
>>19114246More gold? Well this arrested thing was a boon not a curse!
>>19114246Okay, I know we like gold and all, but let's not get greedy! ...Aw, who am I kidding, being a bit greedy is in our nature, isn't? So, yeah, try to tone back on the greed, because for all we know, it's a trap. Of course, it's like we can get to it in the first place, not unless we have one of them fancy explosive makers around in us. Or maybe a wand. And I doubt we can wittle away at the wall with our magic crossbow.
>>19114265We're wearin' our pimpin' crown.
go to the other side of the room and ram into the crack with a corner of your chest at fullspeed
Well you see bribing the guards would mean letting them no I exist. That might not be...>>19114345sure, why not. Nothing else to-HOLY SHIT IT WORKED.
>>19114396Hmm... Seems like it's a similar enough room. Nice pile of gold there.>"The hell was that..?"Ah damn.. Someone heard that. I can hear them coming this way
>>19114413Aspect of chest! They'll open the door and potentially give you a means of escape.And they won't suspect a chest of being anything sinister.
wait until they enter the room and then pop out and rapid fire shoot them a bunch.
go to the corner of the room first so we don't stand infront of the hole and fire up on them when their backs are turned
>>19114413Play "innocent." Once you ascertain that they're unarmed, or relatively harmless, kill them and devour them. Or vice versa.
>Alalia moves to a corner and waits for someone to enter the room. They look around and once she has a good shot she hits them with a bolt. They bleed around a bit then die.>Alalia eats his soul.All right that was easy enough..Should I just wheel on outta here?
>>19114505Gold:The Eating, followed by Jail:The Finding
>>19114505Loot his body for anything shiny. Then, take a peek out the door to make sure if anyone's coming. If it's clear, then yeah, get outta there. Though, I should hope he has the keys and map to Silver's cell.
take the pile of gold, look through the dead guys stuff then get out of the room or bait more people and kill em
>>19114505How long can you exist outside of your chest?
>After taking the guys things (1 Iron Helm) then eats the gold (24,347). He also had Keys and a Map on him. She checks to see if the coast is clear then heads out into the hallway.All right, it seems the prison cell isn't too far from here..>She goes to where Silver is locked up and opens the ulocked.>The cell is empty.>>19114609Uhm... An hour maybe?Anyway where the heck is that girl?
>>19114624Head.further into the cell, there may be clues. Perhaps she already.escaped, or is being tortured or maybe she's hiding in the cell ready to attack anyone who comes in.
prison break. let all the prisoners out. and then rampage with them to the king's chambers and demand he tell you where she is.
>>19114652HAHAHAHA PERFECT>Alalia releases all the prisoners, most of them are various monsters/demons and has them march to the upper chambers where the king resides.>Few guards get in their way and the ones that do are slaughtered.>After a few moments she arrives at the King's Chambers. The man sits on his throne and examines the group of monsters Alalia has rounded up.>"Hmm. Impressive. I didn't expect a mimic at all. Well, now what? Are you going to just kill me? You're a demon, a monster. You kill me and everyone will hunt you forever.""Killing you isn't my main plan right now. Just tell me where Silver is.">"The girl?"
>>19114834>"She's dead. Killed her some time ago. Sorry you're too late."
>>19114840>"She's dead. Killed her some time ago. Sorry you're too late."...that's not how this is supposed to work. We're meant to save our friends. Isn't that what adventurers do?Maybe he's lying. If he's not, I would not like to be him.How did she die? Where's her body?
>>19114834...I'm not liking this. He's too calm for the situation he's in. Plus, he had MONSTERS locked up. Aren't they usually killed on site? Keyword "usually". Be on your toes, kid. And whatever his answer is, you most likely aren't going to like it.
>>19114840What a dick. Have all the monsters kill him, while you take out the wizard who's inevitably going to sneak up behind you.
this some old bullshit, ask questions and if they really suck we kill him and everyone in the castle then the town.hmm, maybe she's alive and he wants to show us to her as a monster or something. fuck
>>19114840>>19114871...A bit late on that. Sorry. May as well ask where her body is, kill his ass, and take the throne for yourself. I mean shit, you've already got a crown anyway.Depending on his answer, you should probably either give him a swift death or a rather painful one.
some time ago? we been here like an hour. he would of had to kill her instantly. demand he give you the body. and then leave. what the other demons do isn't your concern.
>>19114840>That single tearSo you did like silver as more than just someone who was useful.>>19114909>hmm, maybe she's alive and he wants to show us to her as a monster or something. fuckFor that to be true, he would have had to of known that we were a mimic and if that was the case, why store us in the treasury?
>>19114932ask questions like where her body and why he charged her and killed her then do what this guy said, kills him and we don't take any blame
"Why would you kill her you bastard!? She was my...">The king laughs.>"How touching. I killed her because I 'could' kill her. There's no real reason. I could have simply left her locked away.. Now, why don't you just give up little mimic. There's no way you and your small group can defeat my entire army and myself.">Alalia nods, ready to give up when the door opens behind her. She sees Silver come in dragging a knight in armor behind her.>"I'm not dead you ass. Your knights couldn't kill a fish in a barrel. Hey Alalia, sorry it took so long for me to get back.""Silver!">Alalia hears the king laughing again. When she turns to face him he vanishes.The hell..? Was it an illusion..?
>>19114950What if he's just improvising though?
the king IS the demons! use mimic powers! wish for sight beyond sight!
>>19115045That's more like it! I wonder how much of that she heard.Not to rain on the parade or anything, but if illusions are in play, can we be sure it is her?
sit on the throne briefly before ushering all the monsters and silver up for an escape
>>19115071Nah she's the real deal. At least her soul smells the same. So delicious..>>19115097I do sit on the throne..But why leave..? Silver here took out his army. The king ran away.I have an army of loyal monsters...I can take over this entire land.
>>19115237Define delicious, what does she smell off?And with regard to taking over the land, If we do that, people will try and kill us. We may be the mimic queen, but wasn't it more fun adventuring?
>>19115237holy fuck, that's a real option?!fuck yeah, become the mimic queen of this island, first off, make people love you.do something like a slightly lower tax rate.then recruit some soldiers and have them escort that caravan we were guarding in case we didn't finish that yet.finally and most importantly, issue a decree that the very very very worst criminals shall be sentenced to be eaten by the mimic girl.we'll transform or level up or whatever in no time
>>19115281Or we could make Silver the temporary queen until we've found somebody who actually wants the job.She'll listen to us anyway.
>>19115281Simple, we insert Silver as the queen. 'Cause hey, Paladins are natural leaders, right? We'll obviously be the ones with the real power, but we'll say we're "sharing" it with her. Or something like that. We'll have the monsters and demons be our "elite guards" or such. Or at least that's what we'll be passing them off as to the common folk, until we can get a wizard or something to change their appearance into something more pleasing to their eyes.If Silver complains, simply state that considering how much of a douche the king is, obviously his people are suffering and what not, and it is her duty to at least see that they get back on their feet.
>>19115281mimics love treasure right?what better way to get treasure than to become a queen?make silver our general or something like thatspread propaganda about the evil king while we're at it
I was adventuring to try and reach this exact moment!However you are right.. I can't become queen right now. People wouldn't like that. For now Silver shall be queen.. Also her soul smells like chocolate.But anyway she'll be the queen and I'll be... The Shadow Queen! HAHAHAHA IT'S PERFECT.She doesn't complain when I hand her my crown either, she knows that the last dude was a jerk.We'll tell the people how the king was a jerk and stuff and promise to lower their taxes (which I will do anyway cause why not) and then we can rule this land!!>Alalia looks at Silver as she wears her new crown.I'm really glad she's not dead.
>>19115461>Chapter 5 EndAwwww, already?
you can't just take money though, you gotta spend it and stuff. and maybe give that kingdom that was GOING to get that gift the real gift instead of robbing your own carriers. explain the kingdom is under new management and the old king was a douche. then take silver to the royal bed chambers and have fun ;)
The next course of action is to get people to work on adding flamethrowers to the chest. That will take a while so best to get crackin' early.
>>19115461Shadow queen has a ring to it, though you should be on the lookout for assassinsLoving the enderman in the background.
>>19115470Sorry, had other things come up. Chapter six will be up within the year
>Chapter six will be up within the year>within the year>year
>>19117085Given that this one took two months? Sounds about right.So I'm guessing September?
