Dungeon Civ takes place inside a stereotypical RPG Dungeon.You are a race of Slimes living on the 55th floor of the Dungeon. Floor 55 is a Ruined City which grants defensive bonuses. The most recent Dungeon God has granted all the creatures on your Floor sentience and the ability to grow beyond their initial parameters. You were a mid level boss named Kulnarth (the all consuming) a Royal Slime.You have made several special types of Slime, met another Boss, acquired a Fire Mage named Ash, leveled her up into Water Mage by accident, and have cleared the nearest zone to yours the Ruined Slums.>StatsBreeding determines how quickly your race spawns and respawns, and the Floor unit cap for your race.Melee determines how well you fight with Melee weapons, and the maximum level of Melee weapons your race can equip. Also determines your base defense against Melee attacks.Ranged works like Melee, but for Ranged weapons. Ranged weapons do less damage than Melee weapons on average. Also determines defense against Ranged attacks.Magic determines what type of Magic you can equip. Equipping a type of magic will often change your type conferring bonuses and weaknesses. Also determines the strength of your magic and defense against magic.(Some magic will require a Melee or Ranged roll)Technology is useful for building and detecting traps, and determines the best equipment your race naturally produces. Also effects accessory limits.Diplomacy affects party size, trade, and your diplomatic interaction with other races. Also determines whether or not you can accept a certain race into your Hero's Party.Many of these can be improved or modified.>HeroesA hero is a unit well above the average for its race. Some Dungeon Races generate Heroes naturally, others have to work towards them. Heroes are allowed to equip special equipment and act independently of their racial holdings.Sometimes a group of Heroes will descend into the Dungeon from the Outside. These are almost always powerful beings hoping to challenge the Dungeon God. It is not unheard of for such Heroes to annihilate entire Floors.>FloorThe Floor is your world, but that doesn't mean you know all its secrets. Becoming the dominant Race on a floor can allow you to increase its Level.Floor 55 has recently become a level 2 Floor.>StrongholdThe Stronghold is the center of your Race's power. Heroes will rest here when not on assignment or questing. And the items of fallen Adventurers and Heroes will be stored here. If your Stronghold is destroyed all of your basic racial units on that floor will die immediately leaving only your Hero units. Your Stronghold is the Ruined Baths zone next to the Floor starting area.>DiceAll rolls are 1d20 best of three. Your roll will be modified by magic, equipment, accessories, racial bonuses, and other modifiers as deemed necessary.
>>1423125>LAST POST OF OLD THREADUnder your careful supervision three more Slimes are chosen to get Skellies. The first one seems to be going well until,"The power! The height! The awe inspiring TALLNESS!! Nothing can stop me now, nothing can sate my desire for conque-"SMACK."Ahhh my head!"Hmmm that's probably a coincidence right? On to the next one."Oh you foolish fools! How you laughed at me when I was short, but who will now laugh the last laugh from atop the Legs of Superiority? Bow to your new-"SMACK."How can this be?"Maybe they're all like that? Only one way to find out."hehehe."What?"Muahaha. Muahahahaha! HAHAHAHAHA-"SMACK."Ow."Hmmm these Bone Slimes are uppity. If only you were taller, that would keep them in their place for good. Not that they'll soon forget the lessons you taught them today, but still.Legs might be nice.The change to a Level 2 floor is amazing! Floor 55 has been Level 1 since you first spawned! Time to level up your self, your Slimes, everyone!Huh!? There's a prompt. How rare.>Level 2 can be unlocked by building Stronghold lvl 2.Wuah! Surging into your Throne room on a tide of excitement you inspect the Stronghold.Hmm. Ah here it is!>Stronghold (Ruined Baths) lvl 2. Requires: Temple of Undine, Temple of Zephyr, Forge, Expanded Baths (1/3)Booo so much work! Slimes flee in every direction like droplets as you jump around in rage!Your Bone Slimes give each other snide looks, but are wise enough to keep their jaws shut.You send Ash off to commune with Undine while you try to figure out this Forge thing.Hmmmm you do have some Fire Wands, perhaps they could help?Ash spends this time communing with Undine.She seems upset about it, but develops a new spell.>Learned Tidal Wave 1Water 1, Plus 1 additional target.

>>1423224>reposting without formatting errors and with picLeaving your snickering Skelly Slimes behind you turn to the one true source of Slime power.Undine has been called Mother of all Slimes. Even if Human and Elven Adventurers deny this you know it to be true. She will help. You know she will!Taking your place in front of the massive statue of Undine you reach out with reverent pseudopod to touch the cool metal.Immediately your core is flooded with the presence of the Mother!GREETINGS KULNARTH MY DEVOTED CHILD.Woah, loud. You just wanted to see if you could say Hi.YOUR PROGRESS HAS PLEASED ME. I HAVE PREPARED GIFTS FOR YOU. EXPAND MY DOMAIN AND THEY WILL BE YOURS. HERE IS THE FIRST OF MANY>+ 12 xp!!!>Turn Kulnarth into a level 2 Hero>Turn Ash into a Level 3 Hero>bank them for later.Several hours later you awaken from your divine stupor to find you have ordered a Shrine built. The statue has been carefully moved from the main pool into an attached Temple full of waterfalls and fountains. Decorative channels in the marble floor allow streams to trickle along. It is probably a nicer room than yours! > -150 GpDeciding not to waste any more time you order your Slimes to expand the Pools even further.With their natural Water magic and Ash's help this proves to be utterly simple. The second the pool is complete a sense of euphoric accomplishment washes over you.>+ 6 Xp>A medium Water Elemental now guards the Shrine of Undine, and can be commanded by you.Your rapidly progressing towards a level two Stronghold.

>>1423273It's high time you put all the naysayers and Skelly Slimes in their places! Time for you to remind everyone on this Floor who the Boss is! Seizing hold of twelve glowing Xp tokens from the Horde you tilt your face back and drop them into your open maw.Unadulterated power surges through you as you grow in strength and freedom.You are no longer bound by the level of your Stronghold and may Level as a Hero.Kulnarth Lvl 2 Slime Knight!Skills>RoyalAdds +1 to all damage, and +5 to HP.

They might as well be made of jelly!Haha!Ash shows up at the sound of your maniacal laughter and seems shocked."Kulnarth? Is that you?"Of course it is, can't she see the Crown?"Oh. I didn't know Slimes could be Heroes"It's a new age! Down with the oppressive standards of the past!"Alright then. Congratulations!"That's right you wanted her advice.Engulfing her hand in yours you drag her towards the Horde picking up a nascent Slime core along the way.Using the Combine action you merge ALL your flame Wands into one.>Staff of Inferno createdWhat would happen if you merged this with a Core?"W-well I'm not an expert on combining but-"LETS FIND OUT FOR SLIENCE!"Kulnarth, what's Slience?"THIS IS SLIENCE!!Using the Combine action you merge the Staff of Inferno and the Slime Core.Blistering heat radiates off of the Combination. Your hand instantly melts and both Ash and yourself are forced to retreat.>Inferno Slime requires Stronghold Level 3Despite that message the Slime core seems to remain near molten in its intensity.It's breaking the floor.Maybe you can build a Forge around it? Until then you'll just put up ropes.Outside your Slime patrols report a single blighted Skaven has approached, he seems to be waiting with a quest marker above his head. What could he want?

And since she wants Pools, Pools is what she will have!Your Slimes are directed to use their Water spells to fill in the last dried pool in the Baths while you look for your three most sneaky Slimes.You stuff them in Thieves Vests and order them to train until they learn something new.>Gained 3 thief Slimes >Undine is pleased> +6 Xp> gained Summoning Orb (Undine) single use>Your Water Elemental is now a Level 2 creature sustained by UndineSeeing that things are going well you stride confidently out to meet the old scarred Rat thing.As you pass through the Main hallway you see an uninspected hourglass.What could it hurt, the old rat will wait.>This is a statue of Alteric Lamp-Eyes former leader of a race of Mer-People who called these Baths Home. The statue has toppled and shattered. At its base can be read the following: "All glory to Dungeon God Radick whose might and mercies allow us dominion of 10 Floors! May he Reign for all Turns!"Intriguing.Outside the Rat-Man waits patiently for your arrival.Well, what does it want? It had better not be wasting your Royal time."Greetings Kulnarth Slime-thing I am Skathak Sicktwitch Plague-Maker of the Skaven on this floor. I come in regards to Tethys Skitterclaw Boss of the Skaven."Huh? What about her?"Surely your Royal smart-bigness has noticed that she seems... unSkaven of late."Well... she talk oddly now."Yessssss [phlegmy snorting noises followed by a small popping] she does. Ever since she donned this "Ninja" job she has done nothing pleasing to the Filth Eater. Rather she obsesses over small figurines and raw fish. If I hear one more utterance of kah-waee I will DROWN this wretched Floor in pestilence! Something must be done. You will murder-help. I will survive-lead. In return you may have part of our sewers for your Spawning."The Skaven Plague Mage lifts hands turned claw like in rage toward you. You are not sure if this is begging for help or threat."The two of us can strike her down with eassssse.

Some creature types are naturally immune.You readily agree to Sicktwitch's brilliant plan. You never liked the other Bosses, and Tethys has been strange recently.But you want her body.The frail Plague Mage grins like a maniac before agreeing whole heartedly."Come then quick-slick like we will do it now."No, you need more things first."What? Hurry, Hurry! Slay the she-Rat-bitch! Restore the Filth Eater! Remove Weeb!!"If he wants it done, he can wait till it's done right."You have no heels to drag-stall!" He shrieks."Filth Eater will rage at this, my curse-words assure it is so!"Who is this Filth Eater to you? Why should you care?"The Filth Eater is a great Beast born from a Dungeon God of old. Wretched light-weak Gods needed somewhere to throw all their crap-garbage. Made Dungeon, threw in Crap-Garbage. Dungeon filled up, spilled over. Big Mess! Gods didn't like it so they made Filth Eater out of Dungeon God and made him eat and eat and eat. All bad, all rotten, all sick things he eats. Then one day Filth Eater has to crap. Too much foul-sick. Eight days and eight nights he does, and in the end out crawls first Skaven."What a repulsive origin."Phah, Slime-king no better. All things crap-garbage compared to Gods."Undine loves you, she has proven it. But you won't argue his mad points.

>>1424575>>press onward and kill Gozur (Fell Fist)Well, this should end well. On the other hand, I am going to make the argument that the Skaven who has joined us is almost certainly going to betray us at the first opportunity. Like as soon as he is leader. I say we double backstab him in the near future instead. Or have the Rogue Slimes do it, they literally just learned the skill

Some freak premonition of danger causes you to flatten yourself quite literally to the floor. You drag the protesting Plague Mage with you. As he sputters and coughs foulness onto the floor you feel the wind of a massive axe passing above you at core height. There is a thunderous cracking sound as the axe buries itself four feet deep into the stone wall behind you.

>>1424742Can we take over the Guild hall? Like using it for more slime pits? Or is there some reason we cannot, like its too dry for slime pits, we don't have someone to run it, or we're giving that over to the Skaven for some reason?

>>1424748You can raze it to the ground and build something in its place, but the Guild Hall belongs to Bandits and will only ever belong to bandits
>>1424763can we become defacto bandit lord?
>>1424762That's still an option, but at present you guys voted to farm Bandits, all the Bandits were dead and gone so you had the option to face Gozur. You chose to. This is still that same turn.Quests don't expire unless something forces them to. You will always have the option of murdering Tethys for Skathak. And she will probably offer you a quest to murder Skathak for her.Such is Skaven politics.
>>1424763Ah, burn it then. For the glory of... the empire of the ruined baths? We need an empire name once we conquer this area
>>1424766Unfortunately not.You might be able to make the components of Thief Slimes in this Stronghold though since it will retain some of its present feeling.
Oh, also ROLL 1d20
Rolled 5 (1d20)>>1424779
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>1424775then we burn it to the ground.is it just the bandits themselves that we can't assimilate, or is the system such that we can't assimilate any other races (i.e skaven etc)

Rolled 7 (1d20)>>1424779
>>1424792>form alliancesSo we could theoretically turn the skaven into a subservient client group, by maybe getting Tethys close to death, then killing Skathak and having her obey us in exchange for her life?
>>1424796Sure, but Skaven as a race are less trustworthy than you'd like.Still Tethys might be more Honorable. Depends on which manga she's been reading.Skathak will act in the interest of his own survival.
>>1424805As an aside>Use it?>Y/N?

>>1424817You advance on the center of the Stronghold. It glows in your sight with an obvious if ethereal light. A locked chest seemingly overflowing with coins and other ill gotten loot. It's defenders gone all it will take is a few well placed attacks."If you are going to crash-wreck this place then do it and let us be gone-scampering."Skathak seems impatient for you to finish your bargain.You begin smashing away at the Strongholds core. By the tenth hit there is a small entirely to fragile sound as glowing cracks radiate across the surface of the chest. It bursts into dozens of perfectly flat shards of light that slowly drift upwards. As they fade from sight the Guild Hall disappears into nothingness leaving a very large and obviously empty space in the City Slums.A job well done, you've turned out to be quite the Hero!Turning to head back-Wait.Why are the Baths on fire?Rushing home you are greeted with a nightmare. The exterior patrols have been slain with some kind of Fire blast. The scorch marks are still evident on the grounds. The battle signs haven't faded, that means someone is still fighting!Dragging Skathak along despite his protests you race into the Ruined Baths. Everywhere you look Slimes have been boiled away into thick stains on the elegant marble.Rushing past the main Spawning Pool you see a small group of Imps fighting the Large Water Elemental that guards Undine's shrine. But Deeper inside from the Throne room you also hear fighting.>kill the Imps>Continue to the throne room
>>1424836>kill the ImpsProtect Undine
>>1424836>>Continue to the throne roomA water elemental can handle some measly imps, we got a mage to save
>>1424849You can hear them long before you reach the Throne Room."Is this really it? Level TWO? Pathetic, utterly pathetic.""Please, stop. I'm begging you to stop"Ash's voice, she's alive at least.Amber light flares bright in the hallway ahead as you hear laughter accompanying the unmistakable sound of a slime flash burning."Lord Eviscorax said to slay ALL this places defenders, and I intend to do just that Ash."You pass the broken remnants of Ash's wand sliced cleanly into three pieces before the doors of the Royal Pool. The doors themselves look to have been blasted into kindling.Inside the Throne room itself Ash is kneeling in the status of Critical Condition behind the piled Skelly bits of three dead Bone Slimes.The man responsible for this destruction stands amid the corpses of at least a dozen Imps unconcerned that he is alone. Clad head to toe in black armor and wielding a cruel looking long sword the man reaches down with his gauntleted hand to grab Ash by the neck."Frederick plea-"Her words are choked off by pressure as he squeezes."They are monsters Ash, nothing more. They exist to die so we can get stronger. Even "Lord Eviscorax" is nothing more to me than a stepping stone. And once he thinks Godhood in his grasp, I will take what was always meant to be mine!"Ash's eyes go wide as she sees you In the door.Frederick notices and tosses her forcefully towards the Forge before turning to face you."Speaking of exterminating monsters, the main course has arrived. Come on then your Highness you've kept me waiting quite a while. I'm going to enjoy watching you-""DIE!"Huh?"What?"Ash holds aloft the Orb of Ifrit and commands in as powerful a voice as she can, "Come forth Lord Ifrit by my command!"Her battered body immediately disappears in a flash as a portal to Ifrit's Floor tears itself into being and a portion of the Great Beasts power enters this Floor.Ifrit uses Hellfire InfernoThe heat is so intense you can barely withstand it even from outside the room.When the summon ends Frederick is kneeling parts of his armor melted or still flowing molten down his form.>weaknessHovers above his head.The fusion with Ifrit seems to have damaged Ash as well for when her body reappears it is ina pose of unconsciousness.Frederick is in critical condition, Ash is out of the fight.>actions?

>>1424891We kick his ass and plage him
>>1424891HE CAME INTO OUR HOME, KILLED OUR PEOPLE, AND HURT OUR MAGE! HE DIES! NO MERCY! Damn, wasn't expecting more adventurers to join up with monster races. Or one to attack us so soon. Its that kind of nice, forshadowed (Forseeable?) but unexpected twist that makes for good writing. I knew I enjoyed this for a reason. And if we can save the mage we can keep her, yay.

>>1424999Meh, its a king who sees his kingdom in flames, And I think Kulnarth is likely to forget that because hes more used to having Slimes spawn, be killed, and replaced by new spawns as I understand. Also, the rules have changed in the dungeon, so She might not. Hell, because she joined us she might be considered a monster now, and have a new non-hero water mage spawn in her place.
>>1424999As long as your Stronghold remains. Yes.FYI this was a victory for you guys. Even if it doesn't feel like it.Frederick has an advanced Job, meaning he had to advance another job to at least level ten before he could start it. He is probably the most dangerous thing on the Floor and he knew your capabilities before hand and planned for them.He didn't expect his old Adventuring acquaintance to help with defense. He wasted a lot of time on her disillusionment.
>>1425021what is a job?
>>1425009This is also possible. It depends how and where she dies and respawns.
>>1425025think of a job like a class.every time you level up you r job increases level as well.Like Ninja for Tethys, Water mage for Ash, Plague Mage for Skathak, and recently Knight for Kulnarth.jobs give access to special skills.backstab is an example.you can gain skills from your race, job, equipment, or an accessory

Why not decide here-now?"Because all of you are injured, and the winner will be weak enough for Eviscorax to slay with ease. Only together do you stand a chance. And today was proof of that.Skathak considers this before replying."Smart-good words, Skathak will let Kulnarth live until Eviscorax dies. But he will NOT live with this double-hated curse-slut!

>>1428005>>let Tethys join you as a Hero
Let Tethys join you. Clearly, the slime den needs better defenses and Tethys needs a place to go, unless we opt to kill Skathak. Alternatively if we are ultimately forced to kill one, we should try to kill Tethys. I'm more fearful of plague magic than ninjas.
>>1428059More fearful of plague magic so kill Tethys? If you're worried about the plague rat better to kill him sooner than later, before we help him gain power.
Honestly the weeb rat came to our rescue when we needed it.The other one is just rude amd demanding. Either way we need to make some plague slimes to replace all of our slime brethren. We need to make morebone slimes too. We have a lot of rebuilding to do before we think about continuing.

Dozens of options and scenarios play out in the mind of the Skaven rivals, but only one possibility occurs to mighty Kulnarth.Oh, well I guess you'll just have to join me then."nani wo iimashita ka?""Grah! Speak Dungeon you freak-weird!""... very well, why should I give up my place of power for this weakling? If he were meant to lead he would lead. Let HIM be cast out.

Each relaxes their respective grip on weapons or spell gestures, and both have the decency to look a bit embarrassed.Before either of them can speak you bull ahead, certain that if you let them they will start fighting again soon enough.Tethys, even if you kill him someone else will take his place in opposing you. Why not come with me? You can command the their Slimes who are much nicer. And with all the fighting I plan on doing your bound to become super super strong. Plus you can read whatever you want! Tethys lets out a small sigh as she considers your offer. Her shoulders sag a bit as she frowns to herself. Just when you open your mouth to make a further argument she speaks."Gomen Nasai Kulnarth-Sama, it was rude of me to fight in your home. I- will graciously accept your kind offer.

As far as the stronghold goes, I'm a fan of the Black Market idea. Unique resources and NPC's.Have we found a use for a soul yet? I don't remember anyone using them.

Or at least you would have if someone weren't pounding viciously on your front door while issuing muffled hollering.How is a King supposed to relax with all of that noise?Traveling through the Corridors you see more and more Slimes gazing toward the front door. Even Ash has risen from her resting to look that way her face set in grim determination.You reach them and fling them open having mentally prepared yourself for a fight.Both you and the assembled Slimes are therefore shocked to find a short young looking blond Human girl with intense blue eyes wearing a short white dress. Of course the dress barely matters for the amount of potion bandolier she is adorned with. She also seems to be wearing some kind of symbol on a necklace. It looks like a door with a lock and portcullis made of platinum. You've never seen anything like it. While your still staring in mild shock trying to figure out how she was slamming the door that hard she begins speaking."Kulnarth right? King of Slimes, devourer of all, future ruler of Floor 55?"Well, yes you are all those things you think."Great! I'm Alchemist. I asked the Great Dungeon to shop me out to Slimes. I uh, I like you guys. So before we get down to business if you don't mind can I ask if Dungeon God Alcarmen still rules? I mean, no ones screaming so I guess not, but I have to check. Also, your the Boss so I need to check what you want me to sell. I can do potions from just about nothing, Hi-potions are a little hard on a Level 2 Floor, but I can manage pretty much all of the basics. Ooh antidotes are a personal specialty. But don't expect anything super fancy like a Level Up or Elixer.">what should Alchemist sell? Any reasonable requests are probably fine."Okay, yeah that's a pretty good idea Boss. I'll get right on that. Should be ready next turn. Anything I can do yknow, for you? I have to charge you because the Great Dungeon says so, but you get a really nice discount.">Would you like anything from Alchemist?"Alrighty, I'll get started.

It's the most important thing to do in the Dungeon for Adventurers and Monsters alike. You first order your Slimes to build the Temple of Zephyr.Unlike with Undine the god of Winds and Air remains silent, but his temple is completed swiftly since you can use Undines as an example.There is a gentle sigh of wind through the Baths that carries a hint of lilacs when the temple is finished. The room is open to the Dungeon sky with tall pillars of bright white stone extending high into the air on both sides of the approach to the statue of Zephyr. Channels cut into the top positions of the pillars catch the wind to produce haunting whistling tunes. Pennants brightly colored drapes of cloth catch in the constant breeze and turn the Shrine into a riotous mass of shifting brightly colored shadows. With a rushing noise a living whirlwind swirls into existence and takes its place as Shrine guardian.>Large Air Elemental gainedEven as you admire your handiwork a profound change takes place in the Baths. You feel them grow half again as large as they were while elaborate slime motif frescoes adorn the walls, many of them featuring you. You feel private rooms for yourself and your other two heroes grow into existence and all of your Slimes grow a bit more powerful.>Stronghold Level 2>Base monster level increased to 2Hah! And your not even done yet!Descending into your Horde, which is now it's own room with a door and everything! You gather up 6 Xp tokens and eat them.>Kulnarth is now Lvl 3(I have reworked Xp costs for leveling. Levels 1&2 cost 3 Xp each, 3&4 cost 6Xp each and so on till it caps at 30 Xp for levels 19, 20, and everything afterwards. You are not being charged for levelin Kulnarth to reflect this change. You have 30 Xp left.)Gabbing six of the Xp tokens you carry them to Ash with their warm glow shining through your hand.Here, eat these."Oh, um if your sure. I- I probably could have done better if I had been higher Level I suppose"Ash takes the Xp tokens. They flash in her hand and vanish.>Ash is now Lvl 3 (water Mage)"Thank you Kulnarth."Your welcome Ash!"Kulnarth?" Hmm? "I don't think your a monster."Oh, okay. But you are after all a Boss monster. Maybe making yourself a hero changed that? Nah, your probably just both. You are awesome like that. She should go train up Water Magic with the new Slimes."I- yes Kulnarth I'll go do that."> Kulnarth and Ash healed by leveling>Ash learns Water 3>Slimes learn Water 3>Ash learns Tidal Wave 2Turning to the last project on your plate you pull the Demon Core from the Spawning Pool. this thing needs Souls to form, but how many?Too many and you won't have a Stronghold high enough to control it, like the Inferno Slime. Too few and it will be weak.>How many Souls will you feed the Core?
>>1432679Hi-potions4 Hi-potions5 souls
Rolled 14, 43, 26, 25, 61, 50, 84, 51, 99, 86 = 539 (10d100)>>1432684>Feed ONE (or up to 3 max) soul for now>Alchemist healing potions>And some freebie healing potions
>>1432679>what should Alchemist sell?Just regular potions and temporary stat boost and the like.>Would you like anything from AlchemistMaybe a couple potions, but I'm more interested in if you could help experiment with the slimes for new combinations and potions. You will be free to take whatever samples and ingredients from the slimes as long as you don't kill them.Is their anything I can do to help you?>How many Souls will you feed the Core?5
>24 expLet's level up ourselves and Ash again, and then get our new rat weeb (we can do that, right?) up to level 4 with us. That's all of our exp afaik.>AlchemistPerhaps a few potent poisons we could use to empower a slime core? Other than that what everyone else is saying>Souls5, but one at a time if possible
>>1432747I say we take a rank or to in undine cleric
Ah yeah that raises a good question. When we level up should we specify what class to level up? Do we have to do something special to gain access to another class?
>>1432812Most of the time access to a Job requires someone to train you in the basics. Slimes can use Disguise to mimic a Job using its starting equipment.This is all new to Kulnarth though.Some Jobs have special requirements.
>>1432747>>1432737>>1432715>>1432708>writing!Going to try for two more updates.
>>1432891Sorry guys work things came up unexpectedly.We resume Monday
The time has come. We must search for Lightning items to create THUNDERSLIMES!Bane of sword users and pot smashers! Also because when we have fire and water slimes, we need to cover other elemental bases like lightning, ice, dark and light.
>>1433460But we don't have fire slimes
>>1435297We have an inferno slime core, we just need to get to Stronghold level 3 to be able to use it. Speaking of which, what are the requirements for level 3?I agree though. Time for lightning slimes.We might also consider talking to this Filtheater, while we're still on good terms with the Skaven. I wouldn't be opposed to some fucknasty slimes, Dark Souls style. Just filth and goop made manifest.
>>1435853We should have the Inferno slime power the Forge. Also, we NEED superslime minions, yes.Like DarkSouls slimes meets FF-series Flans.Then let's have lightning slimes put on patrols in high locations. Easy Electro-sniping, and they can stick onto the sides of surfaces!
So like, we try to obtain lightning wands or something? I don't imagine there's a potion that would do it.
>>1436231Just a future goal is all, tazer slimes are just a fun concept. The fucknasty slimes we could do sooner than later though.
>>1436302It's about time we put Disguise to good use and use it to gank Adventurers and the like.Be like the Mimics in Prey and give those horrible humans a good spook.
Is this any good?
>>1436804It's a small but enjoyable thing, which isn't the other three dozen anime-theme quests and explores growth based on popularity.Plus the other quests don't have slime shenanigans
Hey guys finishing up the next post in a bit. Wanted to start earlier, but work and procrastination are perched on my shoulders like ravens.
>>1439224Take your time Teras :)
