Set out to rescue their lost team member, a group of adventurers must sustain themselves by eating anything available throughout the journey. After losing all their provisions and money to a dragon attack, the party must find a way to survive without any resources. Laios, the young adventurer, has a clever idea: to eat the monsters they encounter in the dungeon. From slimes to basilisks, mimics, and even dragons, nothing is off-limits to these dungeon-crawling gourmands.
