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...

Getting In On The Monster Slaughter

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  12 December 2018 I don’t normally review board games, but when I saw Monster Slaughter last year...I had to make an exception.

On Becoming A God: Part-Time Gods 2E

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  31 October 2018 If you read my post about Scion: Origin two weeks ago, then you’ll already know why I like the idea of playing a human thrust into the world of myths in which the gods walk among the mortal populace, with hijinks ensuing as your own character slowly becomes...

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...

Mink the Satyr’s Take on Tohru!

Photography by A Peace of Light What is a “Tohru” and why did you cosplay her? Tohru is from an anime called Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid.  I first caught wind of it in 2017 when I noticed all the folks at conventions were wearing maid outfits with giant tails.  I didn’t think too much of...
