Start Your Game, Fast: Minute RPG

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  6 February 2019 As a gamemaster that is always on the go, I’m a fan of anything that’ll make my life easier with running games. Portable dice trays, easy-to-carry kits, dungeon creation tools, and anything else that can keep the weight down while still doing its job is worth its weight... Continue Reading →

Journeying with Journey Away

by Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico, 8 January 2019 Journey Away crossed my radar when a few associates on Twitter began sharing it to signal boost it. Seeing it pitched as a “non-challenge based RPG”, I was intrigued, and seeing what seemed to be a lighthearted setting to go with it inspired me to drop the money... Continue Reading →

Living Your Legend In City of Mist

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  26 December 2018 When it comes to Apocalypse World, I haven’t had anything that really made me say “Wow,” outside of “Wow, I can’t believe I bought this book.” I picked up Dungeon World a few years back at the suggestion of a friend, and I just hated the way it...

The Beginning Of An Epic: Scion: Origin

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  17 October 2018 I frequently find myself gravitating to Scion and games like it (including The Dresden Files, Part-Time Gods, and City of Mist). There’s just something about playing someone gifted with powers beyond their imagination, often from a legendary being, and playing that growth from mere mortal to (possibly) becoming...
