Real Life D&D Menus

When one wants to recreate the medieval experience, many just think of the wardrobe or the weapons.  But everyone needs to eat, so why not a menu fit for your typical D&D campaign, or maybe just a low-key middle ages faire.  When we started Icygeek, we often highlighted articles on the net we found of interest to the geek crowd, and then posted our commentary to it.  We have gotten away from it, but why not try a return, thanks to this nifty article…

Anime Review: Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Episode 1

Continuing on our quest of anime reviews, we now go to one we’ve been meaning to watch since June of last year: Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?.  Being that we love RPGS as much as anime, we’ve been wanting to check this out.  so here is our review of the first episode,  Bell Cranel | Adventurer, where we find out that it isn’t that easy being a beginning adventurer.  Like always, we start with taking some potshots at it while we watch, and then we give our take.
