Christmas Slime!

Slimes are a fun addition to Christmas Day on 3K. Every December 25th, beginning at 12:01 AM mud time, a magic tree blooms in the center of town. Healing potions for all players of 3k can be plucked from the limbs of this tree and enjoyed for a full 24 hours. After your first few sips, whether you needed the healing or simply enjoy the flavor, a slime will fall into your inventory and begin to bombard you with slime related details. Like the potion, the slime will only stay with you for Christmas day, but anything it learns while it is with you, it will retain the information from one year to the next. Simply bring it with you when you enter combat and it will begin to gain experience. It will need to be fed corpses and items to satisfy its ravenous appetite. Additionally, it can be harmed if you fight anything that does fire damage, so be careful!

A pet slime -
A small glob of slime sits in the palm of your hand. It seems to study you and utters every now and then a content gurgle. The slime is completely translucent and fairly unremarkable except that it seems to have a will of its own and an innate infatuation with its creator. You could 'slime nudge' it gently if you wanted its attention.
You'll most likely herniate a disc lifting this.


Where to get it

  1. Find 'A Large Green Christmas Tree' in the Center of Town.
    This is an enormous, beautiful Christmas tree. It stands here shimmering in the light that reflects off the snow around it. Hanging in the tree you see hundreds, maybe THOUSANDS of shiny flasks. You could probably 'snatch a flask' off of this tree. But likely only once.
    You are not sure how heavy it is.
  2. <snatch a flask>
    You snatch a potion from the tree!
    Potion of XMas Healing (used 0 HP, 0 SP) -
    This is an XMas potion of healing. It has infinite capacity to heal.
    It looks light.
  3. <drink potion>
  4. Repeat the previous step until you see a slime spawn.
    As you go to drink the flask, a small slimey creature oozes out and slides down your face, around your neck, and into your backpack where it feasts on years worth of old cheetos and stale fritos and grows to twenty times its original size. It sure is cute though.
    If you don't like this slime you can squish it.


    [Slime Event] Locrian got slimed!
  5. You now have access to the slime chatline <slime chat> as well. Remember to stay away from fire damage to keep your slime longer (which includes damage by you and done to you).

Slime's Hit Point Bar


~{S}~ Health:100/100 Slime:100/100 P: Fullness:0% Happy:65% XP:Some Can raise

Hit Point Bar explained:

~{S}~

S is for Slime.

Health:100/100

How much health your Slime currently has.
Using <slime short>, your Health will be shortened as follows -
~{S}~ H:100/100 S:88/100 P:L F:92% H:65% XP:Some A while

<slime train health>
Health will increase by 6 points with each increase up to Health level 4.
Health will increase by 12 points with each increase from Health level 5 to unknown.

Slime:100/100

Slime is how much power your Slime currently has.
Using <slime short>, your Slime will be shortened as follows -
~{S}~ H:100/100 S:88/100 P:L F:92% H:65% XP:Some A while

When using powers, such as 'Light', Slime will decrease by 4 points per round until it reaches zero and then the power used will stop.

Once used, Slime will regenerate approximately 2 Slime points per round until it reaches 100% again.

P:

P stands for Power. When you use a power, like 'Light' <slime light>, the hit point bar will look like this -
~{S}~ H:100/100 S:88/100 P:L F:92% H:65% XP:Some A while

Notice the P:L which indicates the use of Light.

Fullness:92%

Fullness is how hungry your slime is.
Using <slime short>, your Fullness will be shortened as follows -
~{S}~ H:100/100 S:88/100 P:L F:92% H:65% XP:Some A while

Your slime will eat weapons, armours and corpses. It will not eat 'junk' items.

Example:
<slime feed glasses>
Aeolian chomps down on glasses. Yummy!
<slime feed t-shirt>
Aeolian turns its "nose" up at your offering. It only eats weapons, armours and corpses.

Happy:65%

Happy is how happy your slime is.
Using <slime short>, your slimes Happiness will be shortened as follows -
~{S}~ H:100/100 S:88/100 P:L F:92% H:65% XP:Some A while

XP:Some

XP is how much experience points your slime is earning that round (it will range between 'Minimal/Some/Plenty').

Can raise

The last part of the hit point bar relates to which skill you may be watching (it will range from 'A while/Almost!/Can raise').

Tintin Slime Triggers

#act {~\{S\}~ Health:%1/%2 Slime:%3/%4 P: Fullness:%5\% Happy:%6\% XP:%7} {#if {%5 < 75} {unwrap corpse;slime feed corpse}}

Optional Juggernaut variant:
#act {~\{S\}~ Health:%1/%2 Slime:%3/%4 P: Fullness:%5\% Happy:%6\% XP:%7} {#if {%5 < 75} {get dagger from truck;slime feed dagger}}

Trigger explained:
  1. #act is short for #action (either #act or #action can be used).

  2. Then we open the command on what we want Tintin to look at by opening a bracket {
    #act {

  3. We need to comment out the { } that is surrounding the S in front so that Tintin does not try to interpret them as code within our regular expression (also known as regex).
    #act {~\{S\}~

  4. We begin to type out our hit point bar as is, but replace everything you want to capture with a %1, increasing the value by one each time we come across a new value to replace. We're essentially giving our numbers a name to be referenced in the regex later since they're not always the same throughout each round of combat.
    #act {~\{S\}~ Health:%1/%2 Slime:%3/%4 P: Fullness:%5\% Happy:%6\% XP:%7

  5. Once we're finished typing out our bar and made sure that all numbers have been replaced with a %#, we give a closing } to show that this is the end of what we want our regex to keep an eye out for.
    #act {~\{S\}~ Health:%1/%2 Slime:%3/%4 P: Fullness:%5\% Happy:%6\% XP:%7}

  6. Now we begin our command of what we want our regex to "do" with what we just asked it to keep an eye out for. To do this, we open another {
    #act {~\{S\}~ Health:%1/%2 Slime:%3/%4 P: Fullness:%5\% Happy:%6\% XP:%7} {

  7. We provide an if statement, and to do this, we need to make sure we put a # in front. #if will signify to regex that this is a command and not just a word.
    #act {~\{S\}~ Health:%1/%2 Slime:%3/%4 P: Fullness:%5\% Happy:%6\% XP:%7} {#if

  8. Indicate which value we're wanting to focus on. %5 is the number that is listed first for Fullness and this is what we want to control our action off of. Because we're referencing a value, we need to put this portion of code inside brackets.
    #act {~\{S\}~ Health:%1/%2 Slime:%3/%4 P: Fullness:%5\% Happy:%6\% XP:%7} {#if {%5

  9. What do we want to do with %5? Any time it drops less than 75, do something. The number 75 can be adjusted to any number you desire that is between the range of 1 and 100. Because these numbers need to be in their brackets, we're left with {%5 < 75}
    #act {~\{S\}~ Health:%1/%2 Slime:%3/%4 P: Fullness:%5\% Happy:%6\% XP:%7} {#if {%5 < 75}

  10. Now we have our regex looking to see if our fullness number is less than 75, we need to let it know what we want it to do once it IS less than 75. Using the first example above, we want to unwrap a corpse from our coffin, and immediately feed it to the slime. These are two seperate actions, and just like our values, we need to surround these actions in their own { }. {unwrap corpse;slime feed corpse} Notice the ; that is in the middle. This needs to included to let our expression know that unwrap corpse is one action, and slime feed corpse is a separate action. If we did not include the ; between the two, it would think we're asking it to complete one action that is unwrap corpse slime feed corpse. This would cause an error and you would receive a prompt on the mud that there is no reason to unwrap corpse slime feed corpse here.
    #act {~\{S\}~ Health:%1/%2 Slime:%3/%4 P: Fullness:%5\% Happy:%6\% XP:%7} {#if {%5 < 75} {unwrap corpse;slime feed corpse}

  11. Our last action is to close our entire if statement with a }. This means the entire command is complete. This code can be copy/pasted into your mud window and it will begin to keep track of your slimes fullness immediately. Once your connection to 3K is lost, this action will be forgotten. If you want this action to be recognized with each login, you'll need to paste it into a .txt file and then in your mud window, type #read name-of-file.txt.
    #act {~\{S\}~ Health:%1/%2 Slime:%3/%4 P: Fullness:%5\% Happy:%6\% XP:%7} {#if {%5 < 75} {unwrap corpse;slime feed corpse}}
