You introduce yourself and Valley to King Slime.

...And after a moment of consideration, you take Valley aside. Your initial plan was to ask Valley how she feels about a potential threesome, however, Valley speaks up before you do--at a whisper, at least.

"So, like, she decided to look like that? She's, like, a shapeshifter?" Valley looks one way, then the other, before lowering her voice even further. "I'm not up on my how-to-dos with royalty... is it like treason if I ask if she can grow a dong?"

Okay. So Valley seems cool with it.

You very non-suspiciously clear your throat and turn back to King. You ask if she-- they? What is King's preferred pronoun...?

"She or they is fine," King clarifies. "I've yet to develop a preference, really."

You nod, and continue. You ask if they're familiar with the concept of victory sex.

King Slime gives you a quizzical look. "Victory... sex? As in... mating? I can't say I've heard of it! I know your kind engages in mating recreationally, but I thought it was only between familiar pairings... preferably married."

"Oh, wow," Valley mutters with a grin.

"Admittedly," King continues, "I only know what I've read in books... and my only books were dropped by fleeing travelers."

You ask King Slime if she'd like to... uhhh... engage in recreational mating.

"You... wish to..." If she could blush, she would probably start to. She places a hand over her mouth. "...With me? Why, I don't know... it's all so sudden. We've only just met! I have taken a very humanoid form, but... attempting to mate feels like such a tremendous step."

Since you're on the subject: whenever you had your hand in a slime earlier, there was a distinct burning sensation. Is that... normal? Is there a way to suppress that? It would definitely complicate your recreational mating.

King gives a few nods. "Indeed. Slimes eat and digest by absorption, thus... yes, my insides would be quite damaging to you! I believe this can be toned down with practice..." She casts a glance aside. "Practice I have not had. I suppose that does provide a quick and easy answer to your offer, as grateful as I am for the sentiment!"

You look at Valley, who still has a wide grin across her face. "You should like... start practicing. Y'know, just in case?"

King returns the smile. "Perhaps I shall! That is a brave new avenue to explore, and I will consider it."

You also ask if they have anywhere to sleep for the night.

"I typically sleep in my chair," King replies simply. "Your kind prefers beds, do they not? As much as I would like you to feel welcome in this place now that you've defended it, I do lack such a commodity."

You look for the two goblins that you knocked out during the fight--you see one of them as he's dragging himself out the door, the other already gone.

You turn your attention back to Valley. "It's totally dark by now, right? Probably? We still need to hit up the potion shop after dark at some point and, like, get you some disguise potions." Her grin returns. "Plus, y'know... do some recreational mating."

Now we can try open the doors, the one in the throneroom and the one in the before. With luck they have beds there. If not its still 2 more rooms to loot and prepare for the night and the next day.

Now for something different I repeat my question from before.
How about level up?
How does it work?
Which level are we at?
Distribute we points manually or automatically?
Is there a skilltree?

Seems good as do the questions but the "loot" probably belongs to King so maybe we should ask her about that first.

Find out why the goblins attacked, was it random or targeted?

The engineer guy(goblin) already said they left their base(the cave) and now they want it back.

Just a random thought, King said she gets all her infos from books, we should look into the next bookstore if they have the Kama Sutra ;)

I would like to +1 all of this but I would also suggest that we make that engineer come with us and build us shit. That should be part of the peace treaty. If we could have our own mech it won't matter so much that we suck at melee, we will be able to actually help Valley in a fight.

+1 to "Make the goblin Engineer build us cool toys."

I believe valley is hinting we go back to town. We still need those potions in order to leave town, and there might be a bed or something we can hit up.

Also, it might be a good thing to consider "performance enhancers". Considering that Valley was capable of breaking us out unintentionally in her orgasmic throes, we might need a boost so we don't get hurt when we get into it seriously.
