The Slime Pool has a very weak magical aura. This is infusing into the materials around it and imbuing them with magical power. Perhaps if the Slime Pool increases in power, so too will its ability to influence the area around it and imbue materials. But hmm, what is the use of this?
If the Slime Pool has this effect, there may be other fonts of magical energy in the world too...
..Nom Nom Nom, dirt...
huh, what's that weird sparkly sound?
Lime has summoned the Glyph of Magic!
Would you like to absorb the Glyph of Magic and become a Magic Slime?
Since the Glyph of Magic was summoned into the Slime Pool, the glyph will be absorbed by the pool in a few turns if Lime doesn't absorb it..
@Scarescrow Lime absorbs the Glyph of Magic and becomes the first Magical Slime! Magical Slimes have a natural affinity towards the arcane energies of the world and are thusly the mages of Slime-kind. They are a little smaller then other slimes, though.
The Slime Pool turns deep blue as it assimilates the Power of Magic! Any grey Slime may be reborn as a Magical Slime and future slimes now have the option to spawn as a Magical Slime.
(Dancing Slimes will need to submerge themselves in the Slime Pool in order to emerge as a Magical Slime.)
@Scarecrow Lime's arcane energies are coalescing. Lime's first spell will emerge in 3 turns based on Lime's actions within the world so far. (0/3)
Lime absorbs material: Dirt!
Lime's Mass 4/12 - 2 - Infused Dirt 2 - Dirt
Lime grows in size from all this absorbing work.
@The Elvenqueen Wibble absorbs some dirt while it waits! The soil here tastes charred and gritty.
>Cube makes a deposit in the ATM slime pool: Drop the seeds into the slime pool. >Attempt to become dirt with all the dirt inside >If the identity crisis fails, try to increase mass with dirt >If inventory expansion fails, engage in an attempt of architectural might and make a statue of Cube with the dirt.
Gruel clambers through the moss and splashes into the water. Gruel slurps his way up the pillar.
Gruel has has discovered the Glyph of Curiousity!
Would you like to - SLURP!
Mmm, delicious. Tastes like adventure.
Gruel has absorbed the Glyph of Curiousity and has become the first Curious Slime! Curious Slimes do best exploring the wilderness or uncovering secrets in dungeons. They are a little smaller then other slimes, but what they lack in size they make up for in gumption.
The Slime Pool turns golden as it assimilates the Wonders of Curiousity! Any grey Slime may be reborn as a Curious Slime immediately, if they choose, and future slimes now have the option to spawn as a Curious Slime.
(Dancing Slimes and Magical Slimes will need to submerge themselves in the Slime Pool in order to re-emerge as a Curious Slime.)
Gruel sits on his pillar.
@The Elvenqueen Might as well get going! The surface world seems pretty safe right now.
More importantly, can you turn into a giant cube of Dirt?!
Cube attempts to understand the concept of Dirt on an intrinsic level. Luckily, Dirt is a resource not too difficult to understand. Other materials, and sentient creatures, may require more effort.
Analysis success! Cube understands how to, theoretically, turn into a big ol' cube of dirt.
Cube attempts to turn into a Cube of dirt. Other resources or sentient creatures may be more difficult to metamorphose, but in this case...
Due to the non sentient nature of Dirt, Cube will retain all of Cube's Grey Slime abilities while in this form. Cube gains no notable new abilities from being dirt. Cube is still a Grey Slime, just one that happens to look, feel and smell like a block of dirt. Note: Some Magical Doorways may dislike Forms...
If Cube spends 2 turns in this form, Cube will permanently unlock the skill Form: Dirt Cube. This will allow Cube to turn into a Dirt Cube whenever Cube wishes, without requiring a full inventory of dirt.
Phew! Cube has learnt a lot about being a slime, but perhaps there is more to learn? Taking similar actions in future will result in a Discovery being made. (1/2...?)
Oh! What about those seeds? Well, they're in the Slime Pool right now. It's hard to tell if something is happening yet or not.
Cube's Mass 10/10: 9 - Dirt ~1 - 1 Ash, 1 Flint, (5x Petrified? Seeds - in the Pool), 1x Pebble
>Shit yeah. I immediately,motherfucking, manipulate my matter motto from gruel to bear gruels and start evicing my evacuation point from the pedestal and enter the bad lands of fatty sands over to the other gateway.
> With no eyes, ears, or a sense of touch, Lime have no idea about the change in its current habitat. But, without much of a brain, it continued it previous work, absorb the dirt beneath the pool. With one exception, it drank the transformed liquid of the Slime Pool in the process. (Cotinue to absorb dirt with the yellow water from the Slime Pool in the process)
