Breaking Down Ghost Orbit

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  09 October 2019 I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with G. Michael Truran about game theory over the last year or two, and I have to admit that a lot has changed since I reviewed his ashcan game Plunderlight. This time around, I was requested to take a look at the... Continue Reading →

Refusing To Be Silent In John Silence

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  25 September 2019 Continuing along with the OSR bandwagon I found myself to be following on Kickstarter, we arrive to the book John Silence. While I ignored a large number of the tweets about it early on due to assuming it was “just another OSR,” some commentary from fellow gamers and... Continue Reading →

Getting Lost In The Black Void

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  11 September 2019 It is a rare occurrence when I cannot bring myself to finish a book after I get started. Sometimes the story doesn’t jive with me, the editing is bad, or, in the case of an RPG, the mechanics just aren’t there for me to effectively love it. So... Continue Reading →

You Have The Power In Warriors of Eternity

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  04 September 2019 During the 80’s and 90’s, there was something almost magical about being a kid on Saturday mornings. No school, no job, no major responsibilities; just a bowl of cereal and the amazing list of Saturday morning cartoons. If there was some way to bottle that and sell it,... Continue Reading →

Building Dungeons With Atmar’s Cardography

By Anthony "LibrariaNPC" DeMinico,  28 August 2019 Building a dungeon on the fly is a Dungeon Master’s dream, but having a coherent dungeon on short notice has always been one of my biggest headaches. I’ve been trying to find solutions to this problem for years, from pre-made dungeons to tweaks to various online generators, but... Continue Reading →

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. 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 →
