Delicious in Dungeon Plot

At the beginning of the game, Laios, Marcille, and Chilchuck are members of a big dungeon exploration party that meets a dragon—unfortunate but inevitable—and their adventures continue from there.

Though the dragon eventually devoured Laios’ sister, Falin, she was instrumental in the group’s escape. As they cling to what little they have left—clothes and weapons—Laios persuades Marcille and Chilchuck to return to the dungeon in search of the dragon, with the hope of reanimating Falin.

Unfortunately, the three won’t have any supplies, so they’ll have to make do with what they discover in the dungeon. This may include eating plants, insects, wild animals, and monsters. Their disillusionment with the offer is soon alleviated when they encounter Senshi, a dwarf fighter and “gourmet” dungeon chef.
