It's an original fantasy manga loosely based on the author's campaign. It's not the usual videogamey isekai schlock, but instead based in a consistent, well-thought-out classic fantasy universe rooted in tabletop RPGs. If you can stand manga at all and like /tg/ stuff, it's extremely recommended.
>>
>>77697948
Instead of doing chapter dumps like usual we are now supposed to have constant dual threads on /a/ and /tg/ at the same time for some reason.
>>
>>77697948
>an anime using vague knowledge from video games
It's a manga that features various monsters from mythologies, often with some info about their ecologies (which at times greatly subvert tropes).
I don't think it draws directly from any one ttrpg system or video game.

It's a pretty solid read, which is why new chapters releases always appear on /tg/.

Has anybody ever looked into doing a Dungeon Meshi game? What system would work best for it?
>>
>>77698361
Don't worry, you'll be less new eventually.
>>
>>77698428
Just about any fantasy system would probably work, just add some skills related to cooking and figuring out which parts of the monster are good to eat
>>
>>77698460
Use whatever generic fantasy settings but gather in the kitchen to cook a meal (with suitably substitute ingredients) each session.
>>
>>77698460

Also, try and get some more exotic ingredients in there. Zebra is awesome, btw.

It's very much based on Wizardry, a Japanese TTRPG.
>>
>>77698460
As the Laius profile says, Meshi does put a lot of emphasis on non-combat aspects of dungeon exploration -- mainly cooking, but also stuff like finding places to rest, knowledge of monster habits, navigation and such. I wonder what system is best suited for that.

It actually avoids being 'video gamey'. The only thing vaguely video gamey is that spells require magical energy, and even that is abstract and woven in well.
The author does a good job of addressing how the ecology and various creatures work to form a working ecosystem within the dungeon.

That depends on if they are saying halflings live to be 60 as an average expectancy or a fringe limit.

Sure humans can live to be about 110+ doesn't mean more than a rare few will, most will live to be about 80, so if comparing that to halfligns living to be about 60 means Chil' is likely 35-40 region at best.

The nearest "Video game concept" is that people can be raised from the dead, but rather than a RPG mechanic where death is meaningless, explains it as the dungeon effectively imprisoning souls within it, so if you can get to the body within a few days regular healing magic can still jumpstart them back to life so long as you don't remove the body from the dungeon.

Wizardry's American, but it's the most influential fantasy RPG in Japan.

>Wizardry began as a simple dungeon crawl by Andrew C. Greenberg and Robert Woodhead. It was written when they were students at Cornell University and published by Sir-Tech. The game was influenced by earlier games from the PLATO system, most notably Oubliette. The earliest installments of Wizardry were very successful, as they were the first graphically-rich incarnations of Dungeons & Dragons-type gameplay for home computers. The release of the first version coincided with the height of Dungeons & Dragons' popularity in North America.

from the first paragraph in 'development' on the wikipedia page.

So Laios is like Roy Greenhilt, too many points in int for a fighter. No wonder he wouldnt hesistate to forage off monsters for food though it comes at the cost of having no charisma and willpower/wisdom.

Not really, it's pretty easy spin. Farlyn made friends and learned extremely lucrative talents at magic school, something that couldn't have happened if she stayed in that frozen-turd peasant land where everyone local thinks she's a necromancer.

In her father's mind, he was probably trying to protect Farlyn by sending her out into the world, and protect Laius by doing to the exact opposite.

He's good at fighting. You're judging his worth as a personal friend in the modern world where the most you usually expect from a friend is a friendly ear and a shoulder to cry on. Shuro is more suited to a culture where you expect your friends to suit up and defend your honor.

She was pretty much confirmed to have a human father way back in the Nightmare chapter, we just had years of fucking retards insisting she was a 20 year old pureblooded elf that aged like a human. Kui slowly and systemically proving them wrong on all 3 counts because they're short bussers who need everything bluntly written out for them verbatim, even when they get handed softballs like Marcille jokingly calling Chil a child at 29.

It's not bad writing, it's getting filtered by entry level foreshadowing because it doesn't agree with your preconceived notions.
>>
>>77716337
My preconceived notions about her being an elf came from the story telling me she was an elf and OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHG SHE's only HALF elf GOD that's a fucking TWIIIIIST was such a flagrantly stupid thing to make a big deal out of that it didn't seem like this author would go for it

No one made a big deal out it and you were told many chapters ago if you weren't dense as fuck. The team was more concerned about Marcille being a dark elf than a half-elf.
>>
>>77716361
It's not a twist, you moron, it's a character detail. Not everything you didn't realize was concealed from you for some conspiracy to be stupid. Sometimes the stupid one is you.

Not really, it would make complete sense for her to have the same motivation as an elf. Nobody challenged that she was afraid of her friends dying before her, the only thing challenged was that this necessitated her being a half-elf. It could be that since she lives among humans, she was just more aware of the difference between lifespans.
I say the evidence was vague, and it could be either way at the time of the segments, and I will die on that hill. The half-elf proponents may have been right in terms of facts, but they were wrong in terms of evaluating the possibilities based on evidence.
I guess I just dislike that tone like everybody who had a different opinion on the subject was retarded or something. Whereas either option was a reasonable conclusion.
But whatever, this argument is dead in the water. We know for sure now who Marcille is.

Sure, general fellow feeling is possible but abnormally altruistic (in a culture which has living members who call others "lesser races") where death in the family universally causes grief. Fat ears and lifespan obsession always made pure breeding possible but less likely.

You fucking idiot.
>>
>>77716848
And she has never been the part of that culture since they live in human lands. Her parents can only affect her so much. And we only knew about "lesser races" stuff for sure in this Bible (though that one was pretty heavily implied, what with elves explaining nothing about the dungeon at the time).
But this is probably a valid point in favor that was valid even then. It's just a matter of "is this enough for a conclusion", which is subjective.
>>77716941
All possibly because of a difference in culture. Probably still the main reason, honestly. This isn't a good argument, it's not like elves have the fear of forbidden magic in their blood and it's just her human half that is influencing her.
She was a very unusual elf, that much became obvious once we saw the Canaries. But this probably isn't entirely because of her lineage but mostly her environment.
>>

>a very unusual elf

Honestly the one thing that really bothers me is that it isn't needed. It's just an unnecessary amount of drama. Wanting to bridge the gap between her and other races lifespan was enough motivation. This doesn't add anything.

Yes, his powerful fighting skills. Laius mentions that the intact party's strategy against dragons was for him and Namari to engage and wear it down to set it up for Shuro's finishing blow (incidentally the Samurai's particular ability in the Wizardry games; a percentile instakill attack ability IIRC).

No, that was added by Kui. I mean, that's the actual topic of the manga, the Wizardry stuff is just used as the backdrop/setting base, probably because it's very recognizable to Jappos.
>>
>>77716941
Tbh it's pretty clear that Kui originally conceived of Marcille as an elf and only decided the half-elf thing after awhile, the comic does call her an elf and the first other elf we see (the noob adventurer in the forest whose friend gets poisoned by a basilisk) has ears like Marcille's. I'm pretty sure the half-elf thing was only conceived of during Kui's development for the second arc. She's great at what she does but if you pay attention you can see many details changed from the original arc. How dungeons work is one of the more obvious ones.

Pretty much any elf in the earliest chapters had the same round ears, including Marcilles mother. Yeah, I think too she decided on that a bit later. Or left it purposely vague until she was sure to do this twist.

Kabru livre with pure elves. Chances are in elven cities being a mule is an unspoken taboo so he never had the chance to see one.
Marcille after all was born in a tall men city (court).

Technically that's Chilchack. He's tall for his people, and also I think he may have been taller than Laius when he was briefly Human.

AKA Wizardry.
>>
>>77722827
Chilchuk's bio said he's pretty tall, and we see him being above all other short-men.
Laios is also pretty darn tall, if you check the other tall-men height you see they are around the average human height (173cm?).
Technically speaking Laios is a northern which resulted on him being pretty tall.
>>
I wonder if there are centaurs in Dungeon Meshi.
Imagine falling in love with one. That would be just crazy ha ha
>>
>>77717167
Who says he didn't? Being a half-elf isn't some kind of dark secret or anything, it just wasn't obvious to most of the non-elven characters, and none of the elves (or Kabru, who would probably know the difference) had any reason to mention or care about the distinction. People are giving way too much credence to the shitposting in the discussion threads compared to what we actually see in the manga.

What is kind of interesting is how their names seem made up of one feminine name, and one more masculine one, while they use the feminine ones as like nicknames.

Nah, he's a bit of a cunt, but I don't think you're meant to read him as a callous piece of shit monster guy, just frustrated by Laius' blockheadedness and a bit fucked up by his extremely privileged upbringing.
>>
>>77717176
The point is to complicate her seemingly "noble" goals. It's one thing to have a character wanting to equalize lifespans. It's another when it's spun off of a childhood trauma of watching their father die of old age while the rest of the family continued on. It directly casts old age, not just death in general, as her fear in a very personal way.

There are, of course, other avenues to pursue this. Some sort of childhood friend who is already old and decrepit while she's young and spry. But a specific motivation was chosen and it doesn't feel particularly pointless.
>>
>>77737048
I don't see him as a monster, I meant sociopath in the actual definition. While his frustrations with Laius is understandable that whole scene really shows that, ironically, it's Shuro who seems incapable of considering someone else's position.

>I meant sociopath in the actual definition.
So did I, a sociopath is the kind of person who strangles animals as a child. I think you've just got a wonky definition.

Wikipedia:
>The term sociopathy may have been first introduced in 1909 in Germany by biological psychiatrist Karl Birnbaum and in 1930 in the US by educational psychologist George E. Partridge, as an alternative to the concept of psychopathy. It was used to indicate that the defining feature is violation of social norms, or antisocial behavior, and may be social or biological in origin.
>Psychopathy, sometimes considered synonymous with sociopathy, is traditionally a personality disorder characterized by persistent antisocial behavior, impaired empathy and remorse, and bold, disinhibited, and egotistical traits.

For me it's choker tanline Marcille.

Perspective, she's in a halfling scale chair with halfling stuff around her.

God Senshi is such a giga chad.

Pretty sure that's the back of one of the Canaries.

Does anyone else think that my wife Namari is an incredibly underrated character? I personally think she'll be very important due to her role on the surface and connections to the (((gnomes)))

Well, she mostly functioned as a meatshield bodyguard for them. Last seen hanging out with their adopted kids at the bar. I don’t think she’s gonna be doing much until the epilogue, when the mayor and the gnomes will have to handle cleanup duty after team Laius and the Canaries do whatever.

>unfortunately her mind's eye is a bit nearsighted.
excellent turn of phrase

Holy shit, that's amazing. I had no idea. Honestly, this makes Meshi more /tg/ than most actual TTRPGs.

I like that Kui can actually draw "cute, but not extremely beautiful" as opposed to the standard anime samefaces.

That's some attractive people there

>Shuro seems like an actual sociopath.

No, he's a Noble. A subtle, but important, difference. You know how the internet loves lecturing people on their privilege? Well, he actually has it, so he genuinely was never trained to give a shit.

Yeah, but Halfling Semshi tho.
Man's a fucking carnival prize.

He *did* come back with a small army to try and rescue Farlyn from the dungeon. It wasn't like he just gave up and fucked off; he gathered up a bunch of capable people that he trusted to try and recover her.

He's just also spoiled rotten by his upbringing and has stunted social skills thanks to the people around him, so he doesn't understand you cant solve every problem by throwing bodies at it.
