Well, it’s not like ready-to-eat eringi just slide by when one needs them…

…so if one is determined to survive in the RPG universe, it pays to be flexible with one’s diet.

Thankfully, a recent manga series (tip of the hat to ANN for the news) stands ready to teach the starving dungeon-crawling masses such essential skills as preparing emergency rations out of slime and turning scorpions into a palatable dish.

I just hope the book comes with some great chocobo recipes. There’s got to be a better way of cooking those birds than instantly roasting them with a blast from a mage’s staff – tends to leave them too crispy you know…

  1. Huh, the concept sounds quite similar to that successfully funded Kickstarter game called Battle Chef Brigade.

    • Thanks for mentioning the game – I’ve just visited their website and it does seem rather interesting. I should keep an eye out for its eventual release.

      The shared themes are certainly there, and I wouldn’t be surprised if there were other projects of a similar nature floating around the interwebs even as I type this. The whole concept of turning fantasy-game critters into gourmet meals strikes me as the sort of idea that a lot of RPG fans have probably toyed with at some point or another – only a matter of time before it started gaining a foothold in reality.

  2. I am not too surprised – it is all about dungeons these days. There is an anime about a deep ethical dilemma: is it wrong to pick up girls in a dungeon?

    • Why yes, I do believe it IS wrong to pick up girls in a dungeon.

      On the other hand, inviting them to a civilised and completely chaste dinner over dragon stew and chocobo kebabs (with slime on the side of course) sounds perfectly right to me. (^_^)
