Anthony DeMinico, better known at conventions as “The NPC” or by his forum/Twitter handle “LibrariaNPC”, is truly a jack of all trades, master of a few.
Armed with a master’s degree in Library and Information Science, a bachelor’s degree in English, a year of studying in Japan, countless years of game mastering RPGs, a growing block of playtester credit, and a handful of blacksmithing classes, he’s well equipped and prepared to bring you a cornucopia of posts based on conventions, books, films, anime, manga, blacksmithing, and his favorite passion: Tabletop RPGs.
Outside of setting up shop at a library in West Virginia, you can find Anthony at various RPG tables (usually behind a GM screen), in his mantle as The NPC at scattered conventions including Tekko, Sangawa, and CharCon, or donning medieval garb at local SCA events and Renaissance Faires.
