I am not much of an anime watcher (Except for "Avatar: The Last Airbender"). I've never watched more than a handful of episodes from anything else. But Wolf sent me a link today to an anime series called "Delicious in Dungeon". It's like someone smushed together a stack of manga and the core rulebooks of Pathfinder or D&D. I'm only on episode one, but so far, the quest has been to rescue the main character's sister from the stomach of a dragon while the playe...characters eat every monster they come across to save money on supplies.

I'm on Episode Two. It's weird, man. But it also seems like it would be a hoot to have a campaign where the sole purpose of the quest is to find the best tasting things in a dungeon.

I have heard of this! It was pointed out to me by an online friend when it was still pretty new (or maybe still "Coming Soon"), but I'd forgotten all about it.

Although to be honest, I remember it as a manga, not an anime. But my brain is not very much good at rememberizing things sometimes, so I may be recalling incorrectly.

Do you recommend it?


"Here, have an ACT practice passage."
...
"It's No Change."
"It's not No Change."
"I will die on this hill. NO CHANGE."
"There's an apostrophe!"
"So?"
"It's supposed to be plural!"
"I'M SAYING NO CHANGE."

So that's how I watched a friendship deteriorate over an apostrophe. This is almost as bad as the Monterey Jack incident.


As it should be.


Monterey Jack incident?

Now I misread my own words as "Monkey Jack".

Lets hope that Monkey Santa doesn't go into cheese-making business...

I have been working on what monsters are edible and what aren't for my campaign setting for a few years now.

I had a halfling character when we were playing D&D Next (which dates it) who tried to cook every monster the party killed. If it helps, beholders, while they may be edible, apparently just dissolve when fried.

According to I, Tyrant, beholders are not very palatable. Their meat has to be ground, cleaned and then ground again, and then served as a meat pie or meat loaf.

They've so far shown to properly prepare green slime, a giant scorpion, basilisk (chicken in the front serpent in the back), a "big" bat, mandrake, and a couple of man-eating plants.

I think I would definitely do so. It's pure brain candy. It's fun and pretty ridiculous how much "screen time" they spend on the dishes they're making. They have to show how carve things, the right type of oil to cook the stuff in, what parts to throw away and what seasonings might be needed, etc. There were a few times I laughed right out loud, though. There are only five episodes (so far). The characters are ok; the fighter, brave and determined to rescue his sister from The Red Dragon (capitals theirs), the nervous and squeamish Elven Magic-User (yeah, they dragged that old chestnut out of storage), A Halfling (called a Half-Foot) master lockpick and trap disabler, and a Dwarven fighter(?) who lives in the dungeon and befriends them, offering to go along on their mission and discover new things to eat.

I've been waiting for the Dungeon Meshi anime for years. So glad I started it up at last anime night and got everyone hooked.

Last year, I started the tradition of giving the kids proofreading passages - just articles I found and inserted errors into for them to catch. One was from a recipe blog.

A group of girls came near to blows over whether or not Monterey Jack should be capitalized. A table was nearly flipped. I had to intervene by googling it, which started more arguing about cheddar.

Duh. Cheese is serious business. Well, at least real cheese (yes, American "cheese" I am looking at you).

Ok, now we have several data points indicating that Scintillae causes fights over things like apostrophes, quotation marks, and cheese... it's starting to look deliberate...

I'll watch a couple of 10 minute long YouTube videos about criminal profiling and become an expert on the subject, then go back and read Scintillae's posts again.

Cheddar should absolutely be capitalised. It's a place, in Somerset, SW England.


I freely admit American 'cheese' is great for hamburgers. That's about it, though.

"American cheese" as a pasteurized cheese product sucks.

There are lots of great cheeses made in the US. Both Vermont and Wisconsin are dairy capitals that produce great cheese, even for the mass market, leaving out the excellent small craft cheeses.

Sorry, I was referring to that bland, artificially colored stuff popularly known as American cheese. There are indeed some great cheeses made here in the States, but that one is just flavorless. And don't get me started on "processed cheese food".

That's also the place where they found the 9,000 year old remains of a neolithic man and named him for the city, right? As I recall there is a man there who has been determined via genetic testing to be his direct descendent. Ironically, the guy is a history teacher.

And they don't go around claiming to be American Cheese. A real cheese has its own name, like cheddar, gouda, brie, camembert, oscypek, or Monterey Jack.

It may amuse you to know that I can purchase "Polish Sausage" at just about any American supermarket.


We have Russian salad, which the Russians I have spoken to disavow all knowledge of.
We have Italian salad which I suspect would draw looks of horror from actual Italians.
Our Swedish meatballs are somewhat authentic, I guess.

Not that Americans might know that, from what I hear...

That's what I thought, but when I looked into it to verify, several sites did not capitalize it. Hence the argument.

For the record, as far as I can tell, what is sold in US as Polish Sausage, is likely one of a few variants of "Rural Sausage", which is somewhat coarsely ground and smoked.

But did he come back to life and help Helen Keller & Frankenstein’s monster fight things and solve mysteries? Dammit I need this!

Well, my first guess was “spicy Italian sausage”, but something about the name made me feel like that wasn’t Polish.

Chorizo can look similar on the outside to multiple kinds of Polish sausage, but it's Spanish/Portuguese.

I always assumed it was Mexican, but obviously the Spanish brought it over. Never really thought that much about it actually. Except for thinking that chorizo, eggs, cheese, and potatoes make a pretty good burrito.

And any time I hear "Dragula," what immediately pops into my head is when someone put it over clips of a live action Roald Dahl book.
