Once Upon a Slime is a novice quest during which the player helps Peter get rid of the King Slime who is, once again, terrorising Rimmington.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Return of the king[edit | edit source]

Talk to Peter near the well in Rimmington. He informs you that King Slime has returned to Rimmington and is once more terrorising the place, as illustrated by a cut scene. Peter has come up with a solution to get rid of King Slime--creating a Queen Slime. As you are expressing how ridiculous his plan is, Queen Slime also shows up in Rimmington. Peter explains that if King Slime and Queen Slime are happy together, then neither will threaten the village. To set them up together, Peter suggests that King Slime needs a top hat to seduce Queen Slime. To obtain this top hat, he directs you to Thessalia in her clothes shop in Varrock.

Top hat shenanigans[edit | edit source]

Talk to Thessalia in her store in Varrock for a giant top hat. Return to Peter in Rimmington. He admonishes you that the top hat is too big, and asks you to return to Thessalia to get a regular-sized top hat instead. Return to Thessalia in Varrock and update her. Unfortunately, she only specialises in giant top hats, but says that Eva may help. Visit Eva, who is in the building north-west of Aubury's Rune Shop in south-eastern Varrock. She agrees to let you be the first user of her Shrinking Machine. To use the machine you first need to configure it. The options are shown sequentially; answering one question prompts the next one. The first letters of the correct answers put together spell SHRINK.

Question/machine part Correct option

Adjust Control Lever 1. KSL

The machine successfully changes the giant top hat into a regular-sized top hat. Return to Peter in Rimmington, who tells you to put the top hat on King Slime. A cut scene is shown in which Queen Slime seems to be disinterested in King Slime despite his new accessory.

Gloop gloop gloop[edit | edit source]

Talk to Peter, whose next idea is poking Queen Slime to figure out what exactly she is attracted to. When you poke her you get pink goop. Talk to Peter again; he will then give you a regular bucket. You can use the pink goop to locate the source of Queen Slime's distraction, which turns out to be the contents of Hetty's cauldron in the house directly east of the well in Rimmington. Use the bucket on the cauldron to receive a bucket of purple goop. Peter suggests using the purple goop on King Slime like cologne. Use the bucket of purple goop on the King Slime and a cut scene ensues, during which Queen Slime consumes and combines with King Slime, leaving Peter and you in shock. The couple leaves Rimmington, hopefully for good this time. Finish the quest by talking to Peter one last time. He keeps the top hat while you keep the pink goop, which is revealed to be a sentient entity.
