Wonderful

One of the best rpg podcasts I have ever listened too. Magpies is notable not only for it’s high quality play but also for it’s dedication to inclusivity and social justice. Personally Minx one of the characters has deeply affected me and made me feel safer bringing my gender identity to game tables. This podcast brings great gameplay and great social compassion together and I love every episode.

Excellent storytelling and RP

The Magpies are an incredibly inclusive group fighting to make a broken game (and real) world a better place. Their RP is excellent, and they all care a great deal about having fully developed characters playing inside an immersive world. Excellent listen - highly recommended.

Highly Recommended

For all lovers of fine story-craft, you would be hard pressed to find a more lovingly wrought tale than that spun out by the gaming antics of The Magpies podcast crew. Pull up a chair, and have a listen. Though their world is dark and cold, the characters are well and truly alive and evoke laughter, tears, and a deep-felt compassion for the underdog that’s so hard to come by in today’s world.

I cannot recommend this enough.
