Wizards of the Coast has been slow in producing content for 5e, and other than the Forgotten Realms the pre-existing campaign settings for it have been barely supported, if at all. This includes the apocalyptic setting of Dark Sun. However, a fan of the setting named Kiel Chenier did us all a favor by…

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.
NOTE: we updated the review when we saw we published it before finishing it. Oops.
D&D Saturday: Love Lord Pact
Welcome back to D&D Saturday. Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. We had been planning for months for this day to be the day we debut the last of our Synn Plane pacts: the Lust pact. However, it has been impossible to decide which spells and what abilities would be appropriate to use for this pact, especially since we penguins believe in being a cut above the rest. Deciding what we would do instead, we instead chose to use the idea of love. Below is the Love Lord Pact
D&D Saturday: Penguinish Race for 5e (Crestian)

D&D Saturday: Finder’s Child Background
Welcome back to D&D Saturday. This past week we at Icygeek finished the last book of the Finder’s Stone trilogy, Song of the Saurials. It occurred to us that it is possible someone might want to play as a sister/brother of Alias. There, we present to you the new background: Finder’s Child.
D&D Saturday: Envy Pact

D&D Saturday: Santa Pact for Warlocks
Welcome back to D&D Saturday. Here at Icygeek we don’t get to do as much celebrating on Christmas as we would like: no room for a tree, no money for gifts, few people to give gifts too. But we do love the music and we do love the idea of gifting. Consider that the two big figures involving the holiday involve giving: Saint Nicholas giving presents to good boys and girls, and Jesus eventually giving his life for man’s sins. It is in that spirit that we present another new warlock pact for 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons: the Santa Pact. No, not a Santa Clause, but a Pact, heavily inspired by the book The Autobiography of Santa Claus.
D&D Special: Santa’s Villager Background
As a make good for having to skip D&D Saturday, this holiday weekend we are celebrating with three days of giftgiving. Today’s is a new backgroun: the Santa’s Villager
D&D Saturday: Greed Pact
Here on D&D Saturday we are indeed continuing our look at the warlocks of the Synn Planes. Today’s is the Greed Pact for Warlocks in 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons.
