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. 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 →

Super Powers For A SuperAge

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  29 May 2019 In my opinion, RPGs based around heroes are difficult to get right. Sometimes a game will come out tied to a specific comic line or one specific character, but it will fail for anything beyond it. 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 →

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.

Powering Up With Power Outage

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  17 April 2019 Games pitched to children have been a hit or a miss in my book. Usually, the mechanics are either so simplified that they become unplayable after a while (and often broken by older kids and adults), or they are just kid themed with a convoluted mechanic. That said,... Continue Reading →

Start Your Game, Fast: Minute RPG

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  6 February 2019 As a gamemaster that is always on the go, I’m a fan of anything that’ll make my life easier with running games. Portable dice trays, easy-to-carry kits, dungeon creation tools, and anything else that can keep the weight down while still doing its job is worth its weight... Continue Reading →

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...
