"Nathanael Cole (better known as the ol' NPC) is returning to his new favorite convention for the third time. NPC is a ridiculously motivated podcaster of geek-centric media, hosting on podcasts such as Have Movies Will Game, Bikers Dice & Bars, and the new HAMMERCRAWL! podcast - the latter two of which are produced by his own Breakfast Puppies production company. When not podcasting, he rides his motorcycles throughout the great Pacific Northwest, and somehow finds time to work on producing small-press role-playing games such as Cannibal Contagion, Motobushido, and the upcoming Gattaibushido:FUSION! He'll be at the convention morning to nightfall and beyond, and is excited to be back for more Wagoncon awesomeness."
