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.

Not Your Average TTRPG Podcast

I love Penance RPG’s take on rpgs! Clever and unique homebrew ideas, creative twists on standard adventures and systems, unpredictable players and a DM who can and will roll with the chaos come together to create a podcast that separates itself from the others by taking the familiar and making it something entirely other. I listen to several ttrpg podcasts, and Penance is always the one to take me by surprise and keep me captivated.

Great stuff!

Great Cast and Great Story

Absolutely love these folks — they’re fun, funny and just as importantly an amazing part of the ttrpg community. Give them a listen, you won’t be disappointed.
