Stilton Armor... The flying city of Grana Padano... These are just a few of the ideas for an RPG being posted on Japan's major internet billboard, 2ch.
The title of the thread started out as little more than a musing, "Don't you think a lot of names of cheeses sound like they'd show up in an RPG?" (チーズの名前ってRPGでありそうなのが多くね？). The original poster started the random brainstorming session with the idea for the "Evil Lord Gorgonzola" and the other commenters just took it from there.
From items and cities like the Magic City of Camembert, the Legendary Sword Roquefort, or the Sunken City of Danablue, to individual characters such as the Pirate Captain Monterey Jack, or the travelling Performer Pecorino, things got pretty creative.
The Spirit Spear Parmesan, the Rod of Mimolette, Cantal the Moving Fortress, the spunky villager Ricotta, are just some of the more interesting ideas that were brought up.
If you think about it, a lot of cheeses DO have names that sound like they could show up in a fantasy RPG... Orda, Esrom, Brunost... You can almost see a game where the hero travels the Oscypek road from the ruins of L'ami du Chambertin to seek the aid of Provolone, the Mermaid of the West Sea in a quest to defeat Edam, the All-Creator... Somebody needs to make this game.
But would it age as well as some good cheeses?
