What does your group eat during or before gaming?

My opinion?

If your group doesn't eat exclusively fresh-baked bread and cheese at the game table, you might as well give up gaming.

If you serve chips you should kill yourself in a cave.

breads, cheeses, grapes, water, wines, and roasted meats master race. this is just the general foodset. makes things feel more authentic, although food often changes depending on the setting. if prisoner, bread and water. if feasting, gluttony consumes. different seasons of the year call for different seasons of food.

Bread and cheese is as far as I would go in terms of junk food. I usually fast on game days to compensate for how much I might eat, but I never really need to.

Dude, guys, Bread thread.

Bread was one of the most redicoulously important food stuffs before, during, and a little after medieval times.

Like, being a baker was a GOVERNMENT job and during the 13th century and onward the price and quality of bread was regulated and kept a careful eye on so that the people would have a reliable source of food.

Loaves of bread were stamped with seals just like money was as far back as roman empire times and if you were caught fucking with the bread, selling your issued flour, or any of that other sneaky shit you could get into some serious trouble.

That and the peasantry TOTALLY invented the technique of hollowing out stale bread and using them as soup bowls... before eating the bowl or feeding it to dogs/pigs.

That's largely on purpose, and comes from a long line of Military and Chocolate connections.

Basically, the American millitary was convinced that Chocolate could be made into a super-food, an emergency ration that was insanely high in calories while still palatable.

Millions upon millions went into chocolate research, in order to develop chocolate that would not melt in high temperature conditions, could still be eaten when frozen, and fifty other specifications.

Ultimately, somewhere down the line of research, it was decided to make the chocolate taste bad, in order to prevent soldiers from eating their emergency rations prematurely in non-emergency situations.

And that's why Hershey's chocolate tastes like ass.

I can't tell if you're joking, but that's wrong.

Hershey's tastes the way it does because of an early process that made it slow to spoil, so it could be mass produced cheaply in the early 20th century.

Romans and Greeks had some pretty decent rations all things considered: onions, flat bread (you were given a small bag and an allowance of flour to make this sort of pancake), cheese, dried beef, and they were allowed to eat and drink anything they found on the way there or at the battle they had looted.....

I didn't pass judgement on the taste one way or the other. Good to see American reading comprehension on 4chan is still at dismal lows.

In my opinion, Hershey's has an aquired taste. It contains butyric acid, which is also contained in parmesan cheese, and in vomit, so it makes sense that some people don't like it. I like it just fine, but I don't consider it to be "normal" chocolate, just like I don't consider parmesan to be normal cheese.

The only major problem with the American ones is that the amount of calories you get from them is downright insane at 2000 per(admittedly, it's made for 2 per day in combat zones).

I made it look like that to somebody with poor reading comprehension, maybe. Logically:


>And that's why Hershey's chocolate tastes like ass.
>that's wrong.
Means
>That's not why Hershey's chocolate tastes like ass.

It might seem as though I was saying:
>Hershey's chocolate doesn't taste like ass.

However, that isn't logically what I said, and as I went on to specifically explain the reason for the taste, and not defend the taste, a person with good reading comprehension would be able to understand what I was saying easily.

Actually, pale ales are really taking off here. Not to say that you cant find a particular type of beer though.
