Getting Lost In Translation With Dialect

By Anthony “LibrariaNPC” DeMinico, 15 August 2018 Spend any prolonged amount of time with a group, and you’ll star to develop your own language. Inside jokes give new meanings to rather innocuous words, localized slang meshes together, and even foreign language words get blended together. Every group eventually develops their own language, but what happens…

On The Road With The Nomad Armory

By Anthony “LibrariaNPC” DeMinico, 18 July 2018 It’s no small secret that I’ve been trying to streamline my RPG kit over the years.

From The Shelf Of The NPC: Maelstrom Domesday

By Anthony “LibrariaNPC” DeMinico, 16 May 2018 One of the random things I’ve done after college was to grab any RPG I could get my hands on and read it, scouring it for useful information and ideas to utilize elsewhere.

Worldbuilding: It’s Not Just In Your Head

While a large chunk of my time lately has been spent editing and doing real-life tasks, I’ve been discussing with friends some of the materials I’m reading, reviewing, and editing, and many of these conversations lead to concerns about building a world. “I can never make something that cool,” I’ll hear. Or, “How can someone…

Tips For Surviving The Con Season

Dungeons: The Dragoning. No, Really.

A few months back, I was talking to a few friends about a hairbrained idea I had for a Fate hack that would take the off-the-wall nature of “It’s Not My Fault” and add another totally off-the-rails element to it.

From The Desk Of The NPC: Incoming Lag

This is something I’ve been putting off for some time now, but it looks like the world has finally caught up with me. For the foreseeable future, I will be reducing my reviews to every-other week instead of weekly. Additionally, there will not be another post from me for the month of January. This new…
