Put the weapon away and just go and talk up the guards (from a stab-safe distance), what's their names, their stories, what are they guarding there anyway?

>Go Outside.
Image
You go outside.
>Grab Book.
Image
You grab the Book of Riddles.
>Carpet a guard.
Image
You throw the carpet on top of the guard. He's all tangled up! The other guy is too surprised to move. He didn't think you would actually try something violent.
>Shoot said guard.
Image
You shoot the guard wrapped up in carpet while the other one readys his weapon.

You gain a level! You are now at level 2. Your boon is a pair of RAD SHADES that grant you +1% bonus success on any action you take so long as RULE OF COOL is in effect.
>Throw book at other guard.
Image
You toss the heavy book at the other guy, breaking one of his horns and stopping him in his tracks. Now's your chance to do something meaningful!
>STEAL the other guard's weapon and stab him back.
Image
To stab someone back would imply someone has already stabbed you, which they haven't. Which is to say you're just going to stab them pre-emptively instead. You attempt to grab the other guard's weapon but it's all tangled up in carpet!

Image
Wow you suck at this.

Try Again?
>Yes

You are a Dungeon Crawler, and you have just crawled the shit out of this dungeon. All that stands between you and the Treasure now are these dudes in tacky armour. What do you do?

Okay, you do all that bullshit with getting the book and throwing the carpet again, but this time you do a backflip before the guy can stab you. You try and fail to make it slo-mo. Slo-mo just aint yo show, bro. Also your backflip sucks and you accidentally kick the guard in the face, knocking him out cold. You gain 19 Experience Points, 1 away from a level up.

Image
You enter the treasure room, only to find some giant... thing. It's some gizmos with levers and a big platform. Looks like all the settings for it are some sort of default, except for the control panel in front of you which has three options, and a prompt on a small screen telling you to CHOOSE ONE:

>MITOSE
>MIDAS
>MY DOSE
>Mitose.
Image
You hit MITOSE and then hop up on the platform so you can reach the START button.
->
Image
You are hit with a powerful laser beam that causes you to undergo rapid MITOSIS, essentially cloning you. Except, neither of you is the clone... or rather, you're both the clone? The distinction hardly matters, if there even is one.

You write down "How many times have we done this", referring to your recent cloning of course, and put down one tally mark on the wall. There are now two tally marks on the wall.

Unfortunately the only thing you had to write with was the blood of the fallen. You should probably be careful with that stuff, blood is notorious for getting all over stuff if you don't clean it up right away. It's not worth the trouble unless you have some baking soda handy.

You two begin arguing over who should start blowing who for drugs and sex. Neither of you wants to be the person doing the blowing, so your plan goes nowhere. Ideally though if one of you could take one for the team you could blow a drug dealer for money, then give the drugs to a hooker for some time with them. Seems like a lot of effort, and will definitely not result in a happily ever after.

Crit on deception and pretend to be a dungeon inspector, here to, well, inspect the dungeon. You'll have to have access to all rooms though, so it'd be nice if they let you through so you could do your job.

You go somewhere more private. You mentioned earlier that you weren't sure what gender you were, but you guess you're about to find out.

You have lost your INNOCENCE. Your will to live has decreased by 100 points. Your risk of SUICIDE increases by 10 points.

You walk over to Level 2. The physical location, not the character growth kind. You have a feeling that since you beat Level 1, you can now go on to play Level 2! You love dungeon crawling so much, the joy of a new dungeon abates the SUICIDE DEBUFF by a significant margin.

Suddenly, almost as if by contrivance, the Spirit of the Mountain curses one of the clones with unfathomable Pimplust. It's like bloodlust, but you take it out in a way emulating the archetype of a pimp. Weird condition to be afflicted with.

You kill the clone and begin heading back to town.

You Level Up to Level 3 for slaying your clone. Your boon is a better gun, with 2 bullets instead of one! The first thing you do with your newly heightened mental state is begin pointing your gun at some hooker back in town. It's all their fault you lost your innocence sort of, therefore it's justified for you to assault them.

You decide those guys in armour look a bit too tough for you at such a low level, and leave the dungeon to go bulk up on McD's.

You let the previous owner still act as manager though. You need to keep the place running if you want a steady source of income. You also introduce rent to the arrangement, but he's not allowed upstairs where the actual bedrooms are he's to stay inside business-related areas. Because you're just a possessed scummy crime lord living with a drug-addicted prostitute in the worst part of town, the liquor store predictably goes to shit. More so than it was already was.

But that doesn't stop the money from coming in. It's booze after all. You and your wife begin fighting a lot.

"WHY IS IT THAT WHENEVER WE FIGHT, YOU ALWAYS RESORT TO BACK FLIPPING?" Your wife screams.

You have enough of her shit and force her to back flip face first onto the pavement below. You should probably deal with the corpse before cops arrive.

Refreshed from your meal at McDonald's you return to the dungeon with a fresh idea. You grab the book of riddles from the dungeon entrance on your way in, and write "Work Stuff" on the back. Then you walk up to the guard and simply explain that you are here for the dungeon inspection. They ask you why the title of your work notes is on the back of the book. You tell them it's written on both covers. They ask to see the front cover. You say no. They shrug and let you go wherever you want, with full Inspector authority.

You see the button that says MITOSE and due to your passive nature and its status as the first button in reading order, you decide it's the one you will press. Unsurprisingly, you undergo mitosis and are now two new individual consciousnesses. You have a strong case of Deja Vu right now.

One of the new best friends flips the switch and a hidden panel pulls back to reveal a small screen with a number pad. The number 24 is currently typed in. The MITOSE, MIDAS, and MY DOSE buttons become inactive.

You are transported into the past it seems. Or, at least some sort of alternate timeline where you tried to offer these guys a share of the treasure instead of pretending to be a dungeon inspector.

Quick recap:

The Dungeon Crawler (DC) tried and failed numerous times to get into the treasure room, sucking so hard that even the Creator of the game began chastising them. After a while they managed to engage in some shenanigans that allowed them entry into the Treasure Room, where they saw a large machine with a lot of different buttons. They cloned themself via Mitosis and ended up with two selves who were best bros. The best bros went into town in an effort to do drugs and have sex, but upon trying the latter on each other (who doesn't want to fuck themself???) they became grossed out and despondent.

To get their minds off the horrible act they just performed on each other the two clones walked to the Level 2 dungeon, but before they could even enter the Spirit of the Mountain used one of the clones' heightened emotional state to corrupt them, turning one of the DC's into an evil Pimp. The Pimp killed the DC and went into town to become a shitty landlord. Last we saw of them, they had just killed their wife via window backflip.

Meanwhile, the dead DC respawned like normal at the beginning of the game. After some tomfoolery involving a trip to McDonald's the DC managed to get into the Treasure room, where they were again drawn to Mitosing themself. This time they tried messing around with the Time function of the machine, and one of the DC's accidentally got sent "back in time" to page 24, where they and an alternate-past version of themself haven't entered the Treasure room yet.

So in short there are 4 Dungeon Crawlers across 3 Timelines:

The timeline with the Pimp.
The timeline with DC still in the Treasure room.
The timeline in the alternate-past with two DC's still in the hallway.

It's all so simple I don't know why I even bothered recapping.

You try to regain a bit of your conscience, but due to the brainwashing from the Spirit of the Mountain you are unable to feel any sort of non-sociopathic emotions. Some cops have arrived, and are beginning an investigation into the murder of the sad hooker lady.

Since you can't sell yourself if you want to be a successful pimp, you decide to make some more gold items to sell. The only thing you have in the room is yourself, so you hit MITOSE and MIDAS at the same time before putting your head into the template item slot. You hit start and make a bunch of golden golems, styled in your image. You realize instead of selling these things, you can just cut out the middlemen and use THEM as your thugs.

As they are merely Golems made in your image, and not literally you, their deaths will not incur a game over. They are mindless followers made of gold, imbued with the possession of the ancient pimp, and nothing more.
