What happens when you combine Dungeons & Dragons, other medievil fantasy stories, and cooking series? Why, you get the intriguing series known as Delicious in Dungeon. Let's take a look at the first chapter!

Our tale begins with this narration:

It began in a tiny village. One day, the floor of the catacombs caved in with a small rumble, and a man emerged from the depths.

The man said he was the king of a golden country that had fallen a thousand years ago. The once-splendid country had been sealed deep beneath the earth by a lunatic magician and there it remained.

"I bestow my entire kingdom upon the one who defeats the magician." With those final words, the man turned to dust and vanished."

With that intro out of the way, we meet a small group of adventurers led by a man named Laios. He and his crew are wiped out by a dragon deep in the dungeon, one reason due to a lack of food after losing most of their supplies along the way. Laios' sister, Falin, manages to teleport everyone out... but she's eaten by the dragon. With no supplies, money, food, and very little in the way of equipment, the team finds themselves screwed, two members even leaving.

However, Laios, the mage Marcille, and the thief Chilchuck all decided to venture back into the dungeon and rescue Falin with just the equipment on their back. But... what about rations you may ask?



On their way in, Laios slays a walking mushroom and scorpion, deciding to use these for food.





The warrior guy helps them cook a bit, even using some of the plants on this floor to help spice up their food. Marcille gets mad and yells at him for desecrating foliage around there. However, as she yells...



From here, we learn a bit more about how slimes operate, their biology, and how you can cook & dry them. The mysterious warrior even discusses his history, saying he's researching and cooking monsters in the dungeon for over a decade, happy to see others like him now.

Eventually, the meal is finished...






The chapter ends with the team preceding into the dungeon, Senshi thinking about how best it would be the cook the dragon when they eventually defeat it.

And that's the first chapter of Delicious in Dungeon. What did you think? I frankly loved it, having bought the first volume. I hope what you saw here encourages you to check out the series as well. You won't be disappointed I feel.

D&D mixed with food porn?! What madness is this?!

Seriously though, this looks pretty interesting, I should look into this series.

Cooking a red dragon? Dream big, dwarf chef guy. Dream big.

Though are the dragons in this setting sapient? I don't think I'd like eating something that was self-aware.

To be fair, the dragon started it.

Another thing, are they as immune to fire as in D&D? Because then the menu might have to veer into sushi territory.

You could use an acidic agent to chemically cook the meat, ceviche-style. Maybe use the extract of a black dragon's acid gland if vinegar or citrus juice can't do the trick.

Funny story, I am actually running a Pathfinder campaign based on this very concept.

Basically the heroes are working for an adventurer who also runs a restaurant where he sells food based on monsters. Right now they are involved in a hex crawl hunting monster birds to sell as carny food at a Crusaders tourney.

Ok, that looks darn fun. I'd seen it in the stores but not picked it up.

This looks great :D

There is something I don't understand, though. At one point, the girl mentions that she was killed by a slime. So, how does death work exactly in this setting?

So, it's impossible to die of disease then? Or pretty much anything that doesn't completely destroy your body? Just let it kill you and be revived good as new?

In regular D&D setting at least you'd also have to have cure disease cast on you as well as raise dead/resurrection. Otherwise you'd come back to life, yes, but you'd still be diseased. Dunno if it works exactly same in this setting, though.

The resurrection only work if you die in the Dungeon.
Outside you stay dead.

I really like this manga.It's really slow to update right now. :-/

I'm digging this. Be cool if there was a cartoon or game made on it.

Kill monsters and cook them for benefits. Isn't that Breath of the Wild?

Kind of? I like the specifics, though -- BotW is "dump a bunch of stuff in a standard pan and it either meshes or doesn't."

Fair enough. A more robust cooking mini-game would be a great addition to a dungeon crawler.

This is so going to happen in one of my D&D campaigns. My players are already beasts about power components, this will just add to it.
