Return of the king[edit | edit source]
Talk to Peter near the well in Rimmington. He informs the player that King Slime has returned to Rimmington and is once more terrorising the town, as illustrated by a cutscene. Peter has come up with a solution to get rid of the King Slime by creating a Queen Slime. As the player expresses how ridiculous his plan is, the Queen Slime also shows up in Rimmington. Peter explains that if the King Slime and the Queen Slime are happy together, then neither will threaten the town. To set them up together, Peter suggests that the King Slime needs a top hat to seduce Queen Slime. To obtain the 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 the player that the top hat is too big, and asks the player 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 suggests that Eva may help.
Shrinking Machine[edit | edit source]
Visit Eva, who is in the building north-west of Aubury's Rune Shop in south-eastern Varrock. She agrees to let the player be the first user of her Shrinking Machine. To use the machine, it must 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|
|Button Panel One||1. Silver Button|
|Temperature Gauge||3. Hot|
|Button Panel Two||1. Red Button|
|Mode Of Functionality||2. Increase|
|Apply Voltage||2. No|
|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 suggests putting the top hat on the King Slime. A cut scene is shown in which the Queen Slime seems to be uninterested in King Slime despite his new accessory.
Gloop gloop gloop[edit | edit source]
Talk to Peter, whose next idea is poking the Queen Slime to figure out what exactly she is attracted to. Go up to the Queen Slime and poke her in order to receive pink goop. Talk to Peter again; he will then give the player a bucket. The pink goop can be used 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 an empty bucket on the cauldron to receive a bucket of purple goop. Peter suggests using the purple goop on the King Slime like cologne. Use the bucket of purple goop on the King Slime and a cut scene ensues, during which the Queen Slime consumes and combines with the King Slime, leaving Peter and the player 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.
