"Captain."
"Sargent Stanford. What's the story here?"
"Grave robbing. The groundskeeper reported at first daylight, delirious about some kind of monster. Not sure what happened here, but this place is a mess. The grounds are all dug up. Bodies missing and there are body parts all over the place."
"What did the groundskeeper say?"
"He was kind of out of it, kept whispering about a large monster out to get him."
"Hm... Any sign of drugs?"
"Not that we could find, but the shack is filled with alcohol."

Emils and her "sibling" are red slimes but seeing as everything is in black and white maybe? This may also be a sewer slime or some other slime muscling in on our turf

>>829411
quick what do you know about predator slimes? How smart are they? Can they understand speech?
Try struggling a little less while talking to it.

Emils is only red because she ate a whole bunch of dragonblood. Her sibling was not given the same treatment.

Those are some really far-fetched theories. The way I see it, this is entirely in line with how Emils could act and fight.

I'll keep voting for Give up. And I suppose doing >>829423 wouldn't hurt to try.

As embarrassing as it was, that gave you a bit of time, if it's gotten through your boots there's no point in continuing to try and remove clothes.

Keep struggling, keep activating your beacon, hope help comes. Since it's gotten a solid hold on your feet, I think it's either hope for help, or unfortunately, remove your feet.

Fuck it, I'm not letting this thing take me.
I twist around, clawing at the ground trying to pull me away from the slime.
Predatory slimes are rare and hard to kill since they are immune to stabbing and magic, which is what I'm good at. Unfortunately. Best way to deal with a slime is to slice off chunks of them or to break their core, which I can't do either of.

I start yelling for help, building up mana into my legs, ready to freeze off the slime around my feet. Unfortunately without the same enchantments as my gloves, it would end up freezing my feet as well. That would be unpleasant.
I can hear sounds of yelling and running, people are coming. I don't know how long I can stay free as the slime's pull is getting stronger. If it gets a good grip on me, it can pull me off to who knows where until it completely digests me.

Let this slime take you back to its lair so you can find out where it's hiding.

Can't you cast the ice blades on your hands and use them like ice picks to pull yourself harder and faster out of the slimes grasp. Just jab them as deep in the ground as you can and drag yourself forward

>>829501
If you can re-manifest an ice blade and use it to hook into the ground, you might have enough leverage to drag yourself away, at the very least it'll make a good anchor.

If you hear someone coming then that should mean you don't need to hold out all that much longer. Keep trying to pull yourself away!

Make sure to use the freezing magic in your legs at the right moment to loosen its grip, you need to be ready to put the distance in when you do.

Freeze it.
You'll need a pyromancer to treat your legs for frostbite, or failing that a warm water bath (95f), but the ice should provide enough of a barrier between you and the slime and provide it less purchase.

No matter what, keep struggling.

Freeze your legs solid. That should lyze the creature's cells. Don't let that patrol die in vain and allow their sacrifices to be for nothing!

Keep dragging yourself along while yelling obscenities.
And get ready to frostbite those legs but only as a last resort.

I like the ice picks option. It can't drag you off like that.

Do the planned freeze. You can get your legs healed afterwards, so long as they're still attached.
Also watch the fuck out it's about to grab you.

I fire off ice spears ahead of me, using them to climb forwards, pulling myself away from the slime, feeling a burning sensation in my legs.
I build up the rest of my usable mana around my legs, I gritting my teeth as an additional burning sensation floods my lower body.
I can hear the voices get closer as I yell out for help, but the slime's pull gets stronger. I don't know if I can hold on before I start feeling weak from using too much mana.
I only have enough energy for one last action.

I've no idea what exploding mana is. You're not a pyromancer so it definitely wouldn't be a fiery explosion. So I guess it would just.. freeze you and stuff around you? A suicide that wouldn't accomplish anything heh.

Give up
It's the only option we haven't tried yet.

She's planning on creating a bunch of ice around her legs to force the slime to let go. This would also freeze her legs.
>>
No. 829780 ID: e8f4bd

>>829774
That's not what your "Blow that fucker up" suggestion implies tho. Anyway, I'll stick with my vote because, if I'm right, the slime already absorbed most of that mana out of the legs and the freezing will just fail.

Just give up, you know you aren't going to make it so you may as well go peacefully into whatever afterlife you believe in.
let your last thoughts be not of struggle and pain but rather the life you've led with it's ups and downs.

Freeze the fucker. Sorry about whatever happens to your legs, but if you're starting to feel weak I don't want to risk you getting dragged off before help gets here.

give up, you won't feel a thing as the slime numbs its way up your extremities. Maybe enjoy your last moments instead of screeching and shooting ice everywhere while your pants fall off?

To clarify, I'm voting for the explode mana option here. Don't give up! If this doesn't work then it'll be the same as giving up, but if it does they we're free (potentially sans legs but still).

Seeing as most of her spells are ice based, I think it's going to be an ice explosion focused on her legs that ends up flash freezing them and the slime.

A slime seems like it would be explosion resistant. What does mana explosion do? Is it a literal explosion? You expending your entire mana reserve in one go? Is it a suicidal tactic?

Barring better information, I'm inclined to keep up the struggle.

Shit! The slime has gotten enough leverage to pull me off the ground, quickly pulling me towards it!
I hope I've got enough mana not to kill myself,

My body flips, unable to properly re-orientate while in the grasp of the slime.
I feel my blood boiling as my mana burns in my veins.
I concentrate onto my legs and "Frost, heed my call and fire upon my foe, [Ice Spear]!"

The air around me freezes cracks as my mana runs wild.
My legs are frozen as ice bursts from my flesh and spears the slime, freezing parts of it with me.
The added weight causes the frozen slime to shatter and I fall, only able to block my head as I hit the ground hard.
"Captain!" I hear, but my vision is blurry. I can't see who it is, but I can hear people running towards me.
"Get a medic!" she yells, but I can feel my blood chill inside me, sapping my strength.
My breath mists as my vision darkens.
I am exhausted.

I kindof wish the captain went to talk to the information brokers or criminal groups. Would've made for some cool worldbuilding. As it stands all we really did was get her completely wrecked by a predator slime.
