Pure Steam Ahead!

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  15 May 2019 It is no small secret that I absolutely love the concept of steampunk, and will jump at an opportunity to read in on a steampunk setting. When I met the guys behind Pure Steam at CharCon earlier this month, we got to talking and they were kind enough... Continue Reading →

All-In-One for the GM-To-Go?

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  24 July 2019 Conventions are the best and worst places for me to explore. It’s the worst as I’m always spending more money than planned, but it’s the best as I get to see new things before they are officially out and can sometimes swing the finances for them for review....

Marching Along The Dawnline

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  10 July 2019 As an anime fan in the 90s, I couldn’t resist the siren song of titles such as Darkstalkers or Vampire Hunter D, and while the former was terrible, the latter heavily impacted my view of using vampires for more than just horror elements, leading me to find ways...

Make The Stars Wrong in Fate of Cthulhu

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  26 June 2019 There is a great deal of love and admiration of the Cthulhu Mythos among gamers and horror fans.

That’s my feeling every time I hear about something coming out with The Princess Bride name and branding. I never say “The movie was better than the book,” but this film has... Continue Reading →

Other times, it either becomes unplayably boring (as the scales are just... Continue Reading →

Life Between Two Worlds : Liminal

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  15 May 2019 Urban Fantasy is a genre of RPG I’ve reviewed on this site multiple times over the years, and for good reason: it’s an interesting premise, especially when done right, doubly so because it’s familiar. I’m sure we were all raised with hearing ghost stories, seeing horror movies set... Continue Reading →

Over the Top, or Over the Edge?

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  01 May 2019 Over the last few years, we’ve seen a number of RPGs getting the “new edition” treatment, and a large number of them were released or had Kickstarters over the course of the last year. I have a number of reviews of these books already, and there are many... Continue Reading →
