Penance RPG

Penance RPG is a homebrew style of RPG podcast created out of the belief that actual play storytelling should allow for not only free player choice for any and every decision but equal consequences to these decisions. We believe this allows for an organic style of storytelling rarely seen anywhere else whilst still retaining a deep love for fantastical tales of castles and characters. As all bard’s tales should, we work to not only tell our own tales of heroism and heretics, but also blend our own ideas with tales that have passed around the fires many times over to create fresh blood for older stories, telling them in such a manner that breathes new life and a different style to a tale that some of you may have heard more than 956877 times before.... We offer lovable characters, dastardly villains, dangerous scenery and chaotic situations all in an attempt to bring you something different from your standard dungeon crawl.


episode 40: 40. The Tale Of Snakes & Ladders

Between reptiles and vermin, they make their stand...
Caught in the darkness, with a ladder in hand...

This week, the party learn about the importance of ladders in everyday life...
Why was Rivane on those wanted posters?
Will the party agree to help the village?
How much does Belry truly love Tensho?
What is making that hissing noise?
And how do you "writhe invitingly?"

Also this week: someone upsets a wizard, Tensho takes a leap not the darkness and Belry learns about beetles.

All this, and more, as we ascend to greater heights using the power of ladders and unveil our latest offering - The Tale Of Snakes & Ladders!
