    So we were playing Dinners and Desserts, and one of my players is running peanut butter with honey.
    He managed to fall on the floor during last night's session, but recovered. But then he tries to pull BS that the three-second rule still applies because he's closed face with toasted bread, despite having fucking HONEY as his prestige condiment.
    I told him I was house-ruling that the PrC was misworded in the book and should count as sticky no matter what his bread build is.
    Was I wrong?

    Closed face reduce fall damage and doesn't have to roll on scatter, stop being so harsh on him now

    Besides, toasted makes him tougher to impact, you were a mean DM

    Technically, you were in the wrong. If he was going untoasted bread, then sticky applies, but toast takes precedence; any condiment combo that's below overthrow threshold gains 3-second rule from closed-face toast.

    So, RAW, you were wrong. But peanut butter with honey is such a munchkin combo (+37 to dry mouth, seriously?) that I encourage you to stick it to him any way you can.

    It's not that I'm against creative combos, but if he's running peanut butter with honey you know he's bullied someone into running straight Milk to cover his disadvantages, because the build just doesn't work without it. If he was running a reasonable sandwich build, then that guy could play what he wanted and enjoy the game more.

    Alternatively... Sandwich thread

    Oh don't even go there. The Carb-bases are built to work with sauces.

    Who would run a solo Carb build? It doesn't stack up to any other Class. You say it's overpowered to handle all sauce proficiencies but that's the Carb specialty mechanic.

    It's like saying Fruit classes are overpowered because they get too many ranks in juice.

    Guys, I got bullied into playing Ramen despite my strenuous objections. They said they wanted a fast-prep food in case we ran into College Students or Hungry Kids.

    The rest of my group is Creme Broulee, Filet Mignon, and a totally cheesed (pardon the pun) Linguine build.

    College students and hungry kids can't even pronounce this shit. What's the chances that we're actually gonna encounter them? Is there a way to salvage any build that's based off of Ramen?

    Chicken stock isn't such a great idea here, takes it too close to chicken noodle instead. Curry is way too complicated for a newbie. But a dash of Tabasco isn't a bad idea; then again, it's one of those secret ingredients that's usually misused but in the right hands can put a massive flavor multiplier on anything.

Even more galling, they then whine at YOU for putting them into a "Dieter falls" situation, as though it's your fault that they tried to abuse the system.

    A Weight Watchers player that actually maxes out their levels in WW can withstand anything you throw at them. Honestly?

    it would help us greatly if you would be so kind as to name the starting level of the character, lest we continue to dilly-dally over conjecture and unknown variables. If you would be beginning play at, say, level 6, for example, then >>7606086's suggestion of a Beef multiclass (preferably into the Mezze through the Balkan Master feat from page 97 of the The New Food Lover's Companion for a once-per-meal close burst 1 mark as a free action) and the Aubergine Expertise paragon feat from page 137 of Nourishing Traditions would be most advisable. At a lower starting level, however, you would not have the feat slots available for rendering this viable, though you could then consider Ground Lamb and Béchamel Sauce (for increasing your accuracy and thus your chances of gaining temporary hit points) rather than Tomato Sauce and Bread Crumbs.

    I love you.

    I love you so hard, it hurts, sometimes.
    Like flying spheres of bacon grease, shining in the morning light.

    That reminds me - Is bacon a crunchy or a soft subclass? The rules aren't really specific, and I need to know, to do this over-easy-egg combo I'm thinking of. The crunchy gives the yolk ++, which makes the yolk able to overcome the closed-face toast, by turning both those pluses into one + in a given category other than texture (see optional rules sidebar 12-3). By giving the egg 1+ in wetness, I could overcome toast's Dry 3, reducing it to a Dry 2, which allows me to add one more core ingredient - wait for it - Spam. Yeah, the 2 flavor, 2 moist, 4 ease core juggernaut. Because it's in the same class as bacon, the flavor points stack, BUT because toast (white) has NO flavor points, I can add one condiment of my choosing (Miracle Whip: flav. 2).
    All in all, a sandwich with added damage absorption from the toast, and the heavy Spam, with no drawbacks and a flavor of 7, and a body of 8. Of course, Presentation and Mess are in the gutters, but those were my dump stats to begin with (running a breakfast/midnight snack dualclass).

    I'd go with cinnamon, the raisin's +1 Nutr. Won't do you any good, and the cinnamon gives you better Flav. -AND- doesn't take any presentation points. And because it doesn't take up a Texture slot, you can add something for better Pres. - Which is vital for a dessert class. I'd recommend whipped cream - adds to present, and since it's softer than your core dish, it should stack.

    What flavor pudding are you thinking of - there are some that don't go well with spices, in which case you'd want to avoid cinnamon.

    That's it. I'm sick of all this "Masterwork Pasta" bullshit that's going on in the d20 system right now. Lasagnas deserve much better than that. Much, much better than that.

    I should know what I'm talking about. I myself commissioned a genuine lasagna in Italy for 27,000,000 lira (that's about $20,000) and have been practicing with it for almost 2 years now. I can even cut slabs of solid beef with my lasagna.

    Italian foodsmiths spend years working on a single lasagna and layer it up to a million times to produce the finest pasta known to mankind.

    Lasagnas are thrice as savory as American foods and thrice as delicious for that matter too. Anyone a steak can satisfy, a lasagna can satisfy better. I'm pretty sure a lasagna could easily fill up a fa/tg/uy wearing sweatpants with a single serving.

    Ever wonder why medieval Europe never bothered conquering Italy? That's right, they were too scared to fight the disciplined Chefs and their lasagnas of destruction. Even in World War II, American soldiers targeted the men with the lasagnas first because their cooking power was feared and respected.

    So what am I saying? Lasagnas are simply the best food that the world has ever seen, and thus, require better stats in the d20 system. Here is the stat block I propose for lasagnas:

    (One-Serving Exotic Pasta) 1d12 Hunger Damage 19-20 x4 Crit +2 to hit and damage Counts as Masterwork

    (Two-Serving Exotic Pasta) 2d10 Hunger Damage 17-20 x4 Crit +5 to hit and damage Counts as Masterwork

    Now that seems a lot more representative of the filling power of lasagnas in real life, don't you think?

    tl;dr = Lasagnas need to do more damage in d20, see my new stat block.

    You're missing out. Take another look at the Flavours of Empire chapter, it's got cuisines from all over the world in there. The bland traditional cooking's only a problem if you're stuck in a 1940s or 1950s setting.

    It's a sound plan, I'll give you that, but he took two things that kinda kill it out of the gate.

    The first one is... god, why can I never remember the name of it? The second one is Addiction, I know that much and the first one's the one where they don't want to, but they reason that it's just a little and it can't hurt, so they eat it anyway.

    You guys are missing out on a perfectly awesome idea! Hell's Kitchen meets Iron Chef meets the bizarre!

    Maybe the idea is just too EDGY and ORIGINAL for you mainstream fatties.

    Dude, gumbo (as a dish class) allows you to start with TWO spices (as long as they meet the spicy req.) and one sub-ingredient.

    Of course, it balances out, because you have to have to raise your presentation score higher than nearly any other starting dish to be taken seriously in the first course round.

    Why sub out? Just add some chicken stock. Yeah, you might get hit with some extra sodium penalties, but you should be able to wiggle around it.

    I was thinking of going basic Vanilla, but one of my fellow players said i should try it with EGG instead of going with the all milk build. She said it holds its own a lot better, and that min-maxing with just straight milk is just going to hurt me in the end due to the fact its HP is so low. Called it a "Glass Cannon.

    No, no, it was, ahh...

    Sinful Pleasure! That's the one. It looks horrible, is almost hard as a rock has little to no smell, but has an impossibly high taste.

    He says it counts as a spreadable too, though I don't know how considering how high its hardness is, so he pairs it with wheat crackers and thin rye toasts. The contrast just ends up being a boost to flavor too.

    That works! He has Heavy Whipping Cream, two kinds of dairy coffee creamers(I don't goddamn know), and milk all at once. A few lactose-intolerant vegans and he's gone.

    Though the fact that voiced his intent to play a mulled cider if I got rid of him, "unfairly," is kind of disconcerting. Thoughts?

    Damn... I'm going to have to postpone my combo until later then. I was planning on starting with Shrimp, Crab, and Crawfish. I thought it was the other way around, with two sub-ingredients. My group doesn't usually play low-level campaigns.

    The synergy with those three is wonderful. Packs a punch at first, then backs off until about halfway through, when the ongoing spice racks up. Drops high-end encounters like nothing.

    Of course! Sinful Pleasure! how could I forget. okay, you'll need to field one of the extremists then - a Michelin inspector should take him out. I know it's overkill to field such a high level critic, but it's the only thing I can think of that's absolutely requires high presentation to get defeat.. and they look like low level fatties unless the player get a critical hit.

    If he has Sinful Pleasure, not even vegans are guaranteed to work...
    Are you sure it's not Guilty Pleasure?
    Lactose Intolerants would def. work. Especially if you had them as reoccurring enemies.

    Start out with Ocra and Shrimp as your mains - the flavor doesn't synergy, but they both get the spice bonus (since they both have such a low flavor), and ocra shouldn't affect any combos you have later on.
    Starting with any other seafood as a main will just cripple your Prep and Value.
    The only trouble will be the decreasing Burn as time goes on, as opposed to the increasing, as your combo allows for - but this early in the game, it's definitely acceptable.

    It might be Guilty Pleasure. He was kinda androgynous about it, "It's a pleasure/comfort food build." It has nearly Paula Dean levels of butter in it too, nearly forgot.

    Looking it up, his Pres isn't nearly high enough for Sinful Pleasure, so it's got to stop at Guilty.

    Sup fa/tg/rillers. I need some help:

    My DM started us out in a Pan-Asian setting. No big deal, right? So my buddy decides to roll Miso Ramen (shit is SO cash >>7605460) with tofu AND chicken, my other buddy is going with the traditional Bibimbap with a side of Kimchi as a surprise, and I decided on the reliable General Tso's Chicken as the "lovable but naive outsider".

    The problem is with our other two party members. One's playing Bulgogi, but instead of doing something sensible like pork or squid, this fucker's doing up dog. DOG! As if that wasn't bad enough, the other guy? He rolled mother fucking Century Egg. CENTURY EGG! Should my buddies and I try and deal with it, kick them out, or find a new game?

    Make them change it. Bulgoki's a good choice if you can persuade him to use a reasonable meat like beef.

    The Century egg might not be bad for comic relief. Maybe this player just doesn't feel comfortable playing too serious a food.

    A little late with this advice but if you've got exotic food specialty, you can swap the shitty default broth out, equip fresh noodles, and add all kinds of toppings to it. I'd suggest tonkotsu broth until you can afford masterwork noodles and then switching to either miso or soy sauce broth to maximize the bonuses from your noodles. Check the ramen toppings table from the East Asian Street Food book if you have access to it.

    Only if you actually have the Long Pig ruleset in play. And since they recalled that splatbook and mulched all the copies well before the Internet Age, getting a hold of more than a few tattered scraps of it would be quite an achievement.
