Gaming and Giving 2021

Rusty Quill’s Gaming and Giving is back, and this year will be held on 4th-5th December. For 2021, we will stream the whole thing online, and following feedback have added a ticketed area that folks can hand out with cast, crew, and friends from all over the world! You can join us live on the RQ Streams Twitch channel for a full 24-hours of games, RPGs, chat, quizzes, fun and frolics. There will also be some incredible giveaways from the likes of Bungie, Czech Games, Grant Howitt and many more. Once again, we’re trying to raise £20,000 to split between our three chosen charities: • Mermaids, helping gender-diverse kids, young people and their families since 1995 • ActionAid, working internationally with women and girls living in poverty • Centrepoint, helping homeless young people Each charity will have a separate link on our Just Giving Page, so please try to give evenly to these three wonderful causes! Want to donate? Head over to Just Giving right now! In 2020, we smashed our target of £20,000 and we’re hoping to do just as well this year. As always, we have some creative incentives and stretch goals planned for our generous viewers who donate. Spread the word using #RQGG21 and share your favourite moments from the day!

Transcript Mini Update Four – 18th of October 2021

Hi there folks, Here is our fourth weekly transcript update. Update 18/10/2021: Enthusigasm continues to launch with transcripts, and we hope you like the new format! We’ve been impressed by how closely a single page matches approximately 1 minute of audio, like in a film or theatre script. This was a particular accessibility goal we had set, as this format can make it easier to follow and pick things back up if you stop reading in the middle of an episode. The transcripts of both episodes releasing this week are now complete, and the audio of two more episodes are already in the hands of the transcription company. We have 40 transcripts in our new house style completed for Rusty Quill Gaming so far, though they will need a review for quality before release. The transcript company seem to be making great progress towards completing all of the main series episodes in December, so we can aim for a planned January release. We will provide another update next week! We really appreciate your support, Rusty Quill Team

Transcript Mini Update Monday 11th of October 2021

Hello all! We recently committed to providing weekly updates on our progress creating transcripts, and we’re pleased to say that things continue to run well! Many thanks for your patience and support so far. Here is our third weekly update! Update 11/10/2021: Transcription of Rusty Quill Gaming is making great progress! We have now received and reviewed completed transcripts for many of the earliest and most difficult to transcribe episodes and we are confident that all episodes will be completed to the high standards of accuracy, quality, and accessibility that we wanted. The transcript company will keep us updated and we now estimate the completed transcription of the main campaign to be ready for release in January. Our latest show, Enthusigasm, launched with transcripts for both public episodes and the extended Patreon versions. We are working hard to make sure that we’ll have completed transcripts attached to all upcoming Enthusigasm releases. During the preparation of Enthusigasm transcripts we have been able to solidify our processes to ensure that all new RQ original shows will come with transcripts. Meanwhile we continue to work on reformatting our Stellar Firma and The Magnus Archives transcripts ready for public release and we will update soon. We will provide another update next week! Thanks again for your support, Rusty Quill Team

Announcing Rusty Fears 5 winners

The seasons are changing, pumpkin spice and a familiar sense of fear and trepidation is in the air… it must be October, the most frightful of months. As we prepare for Hallowe’en, there’s no better time to announce the winners for Rusty Fears 5. We asked writers across the world to send in their best, new, original short horror stories, inspired by one of five prompts: It came from below Hooked Out of place High stakes Spark of life These themes certainly provided the elements required to build horrifying tales and carefully crafted chronicles of creeping dread. Thank you to everyone who sent in stories – you certainly gave our panel of judges a difficult job, as the quality of submissions was extremely high. The judging panel this year consisted of: Hattie Quinlan Rhys Tirado Helen Gould However, after much deliberation and discussion, the judges finally selected five talented winners. CONGRATULATIONS are in order for: Matrim Tait for Inheritance Sarina H for Casting Line Josefin Berntsson for Derailing Cormack Baldwin for Final Sale of the Remaining Works of E. Cutler Jennifer Hunt for Tower These stories will now undergo the Rusty Quill treatment for a dramatic reading and broadcast.
