Where is the connection between Tyro and Cheeser? I only get "beginner" as translation or a reference to a greek (non-cheese) god if I google that.

The greek word for cheese is Tyros.

It isn't.

"tyro" from "tiro" means beginner or novice. A bit more poking around suggests that the word refers specifically to recruits. So a Tyromancer would be a Drill Sargent. :P
Alternatively, it's Lithuanian meaning "pure".
Latin for cheese is caesus, which (I think?) refers to any processed curd product. ( So butter & cheese would both fall under the domain of Caesomancer. And yes, it'd be pronounced like "queso". )

Ah! I see... Thanks for deflating the thing I said by sniping me. XD

A+ for research though.

I think some of the related words listed would make for good spells of the Tyromancer.

Quote
Tyrosis
...
3. Caseation or the process in which necrotic (dead) tissue is converted into a granular amorphous mass resembling cheese.

Quote
Tyrotoxicosis, cheese poisoning
Illness resulting from ingestion of tyrotoxicon (poisonous compound found in contaminated cheese and other milk products).
Symptoms are nausea, vomiting, dizziness, severe epigastral pain, dilated pupils, numbness of the limbs, prostration, and possible death.

Quote
Tyroglyphus
A genus of sarcoptoid mites commonly known as cheese mites which can cause scabies or itch in humans and mange and scab in other animals.

Has anyone here just searched for 'tyromancer?'  It's actually a real word.

Used to indicate divination through the results of fermenting cheese. While that is the common use, the literal definition [Magic based around cheese] is more broad and is technically correct for both.

The literal definition would be 'divination through cheese', but the literal definition of necromancy is 'divination through the dead', so...

That's a form of divination I had never heard of before.  Now I am curious how they read the cheese...

Best way would be to eat it with a slice of bread and tell you how good it was.

Check there. Describes the methods. I like the one about writing names of suitors on cheese and selecting the onr which grew mold first. Mold is just so romantic, after all.

"What portents does the cheese foretell, wise Seer?"

"Hmm, mmmm, it seems to indicate that my hunger will abate soon, and you will have less cheese than once you did."

It says my apprentice has brought me camembert when I explicitly called for cheddar!  How can I read the texture when it is basically just slime! The FOOL!

What's next? Brie when I ask for Parmegian?! Honestly, that boy has cheese for brains!

... Hmmmmm....
