[CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE END OF ‘CRYSTAL KINGDOM’]
“What?!” I hear you cry, looking wildly at his post, “There’s another recipe?! Already?! But how?!”
I know, I know - I’m as surprised as you all are, trust me. I’m not usually this ardently productive, especially when the fate of the world isn’t even at stake or anything. But I found inspiration from all of my fans and your fabulous support of my work!
Also, I’m, like, a really really good chef. But we knew that.
I’ll admit, finding the inspiration to crank out another platinum record award winning culinary chart topper took a bit of doing. I wanted to keep this fantasy Michelin star shower going, but nothing was coming to me. It sucked!
But then that moment of terrible frustration and annoyance at unsolved puzzles reminded me of something - my adventures! Specifically, mine (and Magnus and Merle’s) heroic and arduously long jaunt through Lucas Miller’s crystalline hell lab. Which reminded me of the second least awful moment in there (second only to my tentacle hentai spectacular ft The Actual Grim Reaper). And what better way to…mmm…crystalize…this wonderful moment than to share it all with you in the form of a far less deadly recipe! That’s right folks, today’s dish is…
Glutton’s Fork Special - The Philosopher's Stone
I’ll go ahead and throw a disclaimer on this one right now and cut off that frantic message you’re about to send me - don’t worry, this is only one version of this dish. There will be a vegetarian friendly version, The Falafeler’s Stone, at some later date. Probably also a version of The Philosopher’s Scone. Because if a single moment can produce multiple Merle-level puns, then on my honor as an adventurer and a celebrity chef, I’m pretty obligated to make all of them.
This one is a bit more complex than the last, so I hope you’ve gotten a chance to level up and throw some more points towards your wis modifier, so keep up.
worthless idiot mistake of the day: forgetting that hot coffee goes in a paper not plastic cup and causing a customer to get mad about it being poisonous and then leave without buying any coffee because she didn’t have time to wait for me to make her another fancy latte in the right cup
also i was off by 50¢ on the cash register compared to 28¢ yesterday and my manager’s advice is the same: try to give every customer the correct change. it reminds me of like, the part in a video game where walkthroughs and puzzle solutions can’t help you because you’re just not skilled enough to do the thing
this arrange of Merry the Magician gave me some serious Professor Layton vibes, so. here. hifuus solving mysteries AND puzzles. Renko would totally go “This reminds me of a puzzle!” every 5 minutes like Layton does and Merry’s just like “renko pls”
