The one an only real play RPG podcast that you should listen to. If you like a good storyline and comedy with of course some peril and stuff associated with good stories this is highly recommended. Sterling work RQ team!

I started this series relatively late into it, and within 2 months I was completely caught up, eagerly awaiting each new episode. I find myself emotionally invested in all the characters, and vocally reacting at least once an episode. Between this, Magnus and Stella Firma, a lot of great stuff...Read full review »

Between this podcast and the magnus archive I couldn’t stop listening until it ended and I can’t wait to start any of the sister podcasts

Alexander J Newell once again ruins my emotions via incredible voice acting. Also I would die for Hamid.

I’ll admit, I only started this podcast when I was caught up on the Magnus Archives and wanted more from Rusty Quill, but this has become my all-time favorite podcast. At first I was a bit concerned as I am only familiar with DnD 5e and thought that the Pathfinder mechanics would be too...Read full review »

This is the only ap podcast to have made me cry. It's also the one that has made me laugh the most. I've yet to understand how they keep moving between tragedy and comedy so seamlessly but this has my absolute respect as a work of art.Read full review »

10/10 recommend it to all my nerd friends. I’ve been listening to this podcast for almost a year now and I love it so much! I came here from stellar firma with no role play or dnd experience. But I heard the space friends episode and I wanted to check it out. I now am in two different games and...Read full review »

Thank you. Thank you for the laughs. Thank you for the tears. This is, by fare, some of, if not THE best piece of ART I have ever had the honor of observing. There is no other way of putting it. And all i can do in return, is to thank you for everything.

Anything from Rusty Quill is brilliant and RQGaming is no exception. I came here originally from Magnus and then Stella Firma. I’ve never played a role-playing game before but I am addicted to this podcast, it really makes me want to give it a go. I’ve just finished season 1 in about two weeks...Read full review »

I genuinely do not have the words to describe how much I love this campaign. I listen to a lot of dnd podcasts, and they’re amazing. But they all feel like watching a cool show somewhere. This one feels like sitting in a room with friends, cheering on their game. Maybe it’s just because I’m from...Read full review »

As someone with approx zero actual RPG experience with dnd or any other variations, I’m enjoying this show immensely. I’m about 40 episodes in and started listening during the pandemic and I think I’ll look for a group when we can finally leave our houses again. Came to this show from The Magnus...Read full review »

Having started with Magnus Archives and worked my way into Rusty Quill’s other works, I had high expectations for production quality and acting work. My expectations were met and exceeded. Having never participated in a tabletop RPG I was still able to follow along with ease thanks to both the...Read full review »

I usually dislike podcasts, but after stumbling into Stellar Firma and loving that, I delved into RQG and I have been binging it all week. It is the perfect combination of witty, humorous, action with fantastic character development and role play. Alex is an evil genius in leading the content,...Read full review »

I'm actually amazed at how great of a story this turned out to be. Everyone involved is hilarious but also dedicated to making a good show. The plot is fantastic and all of the characters have such vibrant personalities. I love how much this campaign has surprised me. The one-shots are...Read full review »

This is a 5 star actual play podcast, hands down. I only just started listening from the beginning and my cat already won’t cuddle me when I listen because I laugh so much, and yet the play and story is so rich. If tabletops might be your thing, if an actual play with production grabs you, if you...Read full review »

I am officially all caught up, and I am officially sad. I’ve been listening to this for months when driving or at home and I feel lost. I did the same with Magnus and ended up here. Guess Stellar is next...
Courtney1)994;'d via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/17/20
this is currently my favorite podcast! the cast is delightfully fun to listen to, even when they’re rp-ing something that will inevitably break my heart. alex is an incredible gm, and the story itself is incredibly fascinating. i’m doing my second full listen through and having even more fun than...Read full review »

This podcast means so much to me ❤️ It’s what I listened to when I was having a really difficult time at uni, what I listened to during my daily lockdown walks, and it’s still what I listen to during this second lockdown 💕 The DM and the players are all absolutely amazing~ and their chemistry...Read full review »

This podcast is amazing and I love it so much. It has payed my emotions like a cat with a ball of yarn. Helen is a delight 💖
sleeping sharks via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/18/20
this podcast is everything you could ever want in an actual play podcast. perfect for anyone looking to get into actual play or just looking for an amazing story and compelling characters. the RQG team is lovely, and i’ve never laughed harder at a podcast
mira_cam via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/01/20
I recommend RQG to everyone I know. It’s my gold standard not just for actual play, but for podcasts. So happy I found it, because the care taken in creating a complex campaign, the character growth, the laughs and gaffs? It’s perfect. Thanks to the team ❤️
Katy the kitten via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/29/20
The Rusty Quill has a ton of amazing podcasts, but this, their flagship show, is definitely my favorite. Actual play using the Pathfinder RPG system that actually made me understand PF (except the rules for grappling which Alex constantly complains about but has never once used.)
GloriaJoy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/26/20
Work in a lab that’s in a basement alone, so this is great because not only is it funny and entertaining, but also makes me feel like I’m laughing with friends. Well crafted characters and story always a plus too, can’t wait to get caught up
newleavesinspring via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/25/20
Got here by way of Magnus Archives! I’m only perhaps halfway through (and loving it), but I hit an episode that started with a content warning. It wasn’t something particularly relevant to me, but I still appreciate the heads-up: it makes me feel like the creators value their listeners’ safety...Read full review »

This podcast is one of the best things I’ve experienced in a very long time. As an aspiring GM I’ve learned more about actual gameplay listening to the first thirty episodes than I did reading stacks of rule books. It’s also one of the funniest things I’ve listened to in my life, so there’s that....Read full review »

I work long 10-12 hour shifts on an assembly line, and after blowing through the entirety of The Magnus Archives in record time, I switched over to this one, and have run the risk of getting caught with my phone on the production floor from all the ugly laughter this podcast fills me with!

The players are all funny and fun, and the story is great. Everyone clearly puts in the work, and it’s seriously well-produced.

benarnaman via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/29/20
Manages to be funny and absurd while still maintaining enough forward momentum. It’s clear the players are good improvisers and it pays dividends. Love it!

But for real this podcast is amazing and I haven’t been able to think about anything else for months. It starts slow but speeds up dramatically as it goes and the quality of the humor is top-notch the whole way through. I love this podcast so much!!

The overtalk and interrupting can sometimes make it impossible to understand what’s going on upon the first listen (tho maybe that’s just bc of my ADHD), but it says a lot about the quality of this show that even with that problem, I’d rate it five stars :)

I really enjoyed this podcast - and yes I did binge all 150 hours in about two weeks. Came over from the Magnus Archives and have not regretted it, Rusty Quill consistently creates fantastic worlds and amazing characters. Thanks for all your hard work, guys!

alex is an evil little man and i love him for it. the setting and story is excellent, the players and player characters are great, the npcs are terrible and i love to hate them.
Janeyjames via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/01/20
I’ve been consuming a lot of ttrpg content in the past couple years but this is genuinely one of my faves out there. If you’re a fan of other Rusty Quill content or stuff like TAZ and CR and/or are down for a lot of emotions in your actual play content, it’s a very good podcast.
NymphOfNovels via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/26/20
Love you all from Louisiana in the states! One of the best pods I’ve listened to. DND/pathfinder related or not. Thanks for being so wonderful you sweet, sweet babies!
Randielynne via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/23/20
If you’re looking for good background listening while cleaning the house, playing your own games, or self-isolating, this is a solid choice.
