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 1: The Abyssal Archive: Episode 01

Ever wondered what goes into writing a Penance RPG adaptation?
This time, from the ground up, we've got you covered.

We present ARCHIVE! A new companion series where Nikoli & Amy sit down and discuss the DM notes for each episode of Abyss as it happens.
This will include recaps of the previous Abyss episode, Nikoli's outline for the next episode and some details of how this compares to what the source material originally planned.

Hopefully Archive will satisfy the "behind the scenes" cravings we know some fans have for our DM notes and reasoning behind what we changed and why.

However, this will be the only episode of Archive we will be releasing on Libsyn, the rest will be released each week to our $3+ Patreon supporters. If you enjoy it, consider joining our Patreon!
