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.

Comedy, horror and heart it has all

I love playing alongside my fabulous co-stars and DM. This group of fabulous people have great talent, comedy and ideas that make my week, every session. You should check them out!

AJ-PWD ,

Curse of Penance, Surprisingly Curse-Free

Really enjoying the new adaptation of 'Curse of Strahd'. The cast gel well together, it's funny, spooky, and different.

Mawdrigen ,

Mayhem and Burning Temples

While the group may be obsessed with rocks, curtains, and a cultist called Alphonso this podcast is an enjoyable harking back to the old days of D&D where bands of adventurers caused mayhem where ever they roamed. Mayhem is definitely caused but also comedy and good roleplaying, stick with it and be rewarded!
