D&D Saturday: Gluttony Pact

D&D LogoWelcome back to D&D Saturday. Here in the States we are soon to be celebrating one of our big holidays: Thanksgiving.  A holiday so big that even Facebook games based in Britain and Turkey know to have much to do about the day in their games.  Last week on D&D Saturday we gave a glimpse into our campaign world of the Synn Planes: seven interwoven “outer planes” each based on one of the seven classic deadly sins of lore.  Given the proximity to Thanksgiving, which sin to better to introduce today than Gluttony.  As each of the planes wish to corrupt those who travel within, each offers a warlock pact.  So for the plane of gluttony, we present to you a new pact for warlocks in 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons: the Gluttony Pact.

D&D Saturday: Ghost Legion Pact

D&D LogoWelcome back to D&D Saturday.  Today is Halloween, and while it is a little too late to start a D&D campaign for October, it is still October and thus the need for one more spooky addition to Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition.  So the question was: what to do for this special Halloween edition of D&D Saturday.  Well, our Antediluvian Vampire Pact was our most popular post ever, so obviously there is a need for new warlord pacts.  Also, in two weeks many countries celebrate November 11 as a national holiday, giving it various names but all celebrating veterans.  So, in the spirit of both, we present to you a new pact for warlocks in 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons: the Ghost Legion Pact.

D&D Saturday: Werewolf Kin Background

D&D LogoWelcome back to D&D Saturday.  (Well, the time I started writing this it’s still Saturday in Alaska).  Anyways, continuing with our October theme, we are introducing another new background.  This one is the Werewolf Kin.  Althro traditionally the legend was that werewolves created new werewolves by bite, newer interpretations have had it so werewolves are bred and form families, similar to packs.  This was seen in both Werewolf: the Apocalypse and Twilight.  So today we introduce the Werewolf Kin

D&D Saturday: Antediluvian Vampire Warlock Pact

D&D LogoWelcome back to D&D Saturday.  When trying to decide what to publish today, it was a struggle as we’d like to keep with the prestige classes, but the only one we can think of that would also fit into the October theme is a Ghostbuster PrC, and that was a little too looney.  But, having never really looked that hard at the warlock we noticed how well many of the warlock pacts would work well if one’s patron was an ancient vampire.  So, for D&D Saturday, we present to you a new pact for warlocks in 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons: the Antediluvian Vampire Pact.

D&D Saturday: Vampire Hunter Prestige Class

D&D LogoWelcome back to D&D Saturday.  As we mentioned yesterday, we are continuing our Halloween month theme and presenting one of the first new prestige classes for 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons.

Consider this a prototype of what prestige classes will look like in D&D 5e, as well as a nice addition to the Halloween theme for this month, as we debut the new Prestige Class  of … the Vampire Hunter.  Ever wanted to be Simon Belmont, Buffy, or Dr. Rudolph Van Richten?  Here’s your chance.

D&D 5th Edition Prestige Classes Manifesto

D&D LogoOn Monday this week, in the latest Unearthed Arcana on the Dungeons & Dragons side of WotC website, they released the first ever prestige class (PrC) for 5th Edition.  Many hated this, as they far preferred the Archetype mechanics instead of 5e.  Personally, we at Icygeek have been wishing to see PrCs added to the 5e game.

However, the Rune Scribe is a horrible first example of a 5e Prestige Class, what with all its new mechanics.  It is taking a lot of reading between the lines to figure out how to create more prestige classes.  These are the rules we at Icygeek are working with.  Some of this just repeats what was said in the original article, but it doesn’t hurt to list the specifics.
