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 →

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...

Storming The Castle: The Princess Bride RPG

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  12 June2019 There’s a shortage of perfect movies in this world. It’d be a pity to ruin this one.
