  • RQG – Goodbye for Now 3:01

    Hey everyone, Alex here. If you're listening to this message then that means you have made it through all of the content on this Rusty Quill Gaming Podcast feed!


    All. The whole kit and caboodle! That means you probably quite like what we do, or you're just really, really stubborn. Either way, I'm impressed. Good job. This does mean, though, that we are no longer going to be releasing regular content on this podcast feed for the foreseeable future.


    Don't fret, all the episodes will be left online for everyone to enjoy for as long as its possible for us to keep them available. Which should be ages.


    That said, if you want more content featuring the characters and players your love, and haven't already checked it out, we recommend you visit patreon.com/rustyquill where you can access all kinds of RQG bonus materials, including full side quests. We are exploring further plans for Rusty Quill Gaming in the future too, and will make sure anything new is announced in this feed.


    In the mean time though, if you are on the hunt for more tabletop podcast fun times that scratch that Rusty Quill Gaming itch, then by sure to bounce across to our shiny new show: Chapter and Multiverse. This weekly actual-play show uses multiple game systems of different genres to explore the city of Chapter. Every new campaign is set in the same city, but in an alternate universe. One season, its a medieval fantasy town with monarchs, magic and monsters, the next, its a gritty neon-punk metropolis ruled by greedy mega-corps. Sometimes, maybe even both at once. If you've enjoyed Rusty Quill Gaming, you'll definitely get a kick out of Chapter and Multiverse, as it features some of your favourite performers from RQG and our other shows, along side some fresh new faces.


    And, as with Rusty Quill Gaming, you can get early access to new episodes, along side bonus materials via our Patreon.


    On top of all that, we are also celebrating the end of Rusty Quill Gaming with a special merch drop of two commemorative dice sets: one set of custom polyhedral dice, and an extra special set encased in metal with an engraved presentation box. Pre-orders go live to public on Wednesday, 4th of May 2022 so be sure to follow the link in the show notes (http://thedicedungeon.co.uk/) to place your order, or head over to the dice dungeon dot co dot UK for more info.


    That's everything for now then, apart from a personal thank you to all of you. When we first started this podcast, we never dared hope it would reach the scale it has. Through equipment failures, makeshift studios, asbestos goblins, and even a global pandemic, you've all stood by us and supported us, helping us to make something really special. And for that, we will always be grateful. We really hope you have enjoyed the games we have played together, and we cant wait to show you all the new content we have coming out thanks to your ongoing support.


    But for now, from all the cast and crew of Rusty Quill Gaming, thank you. Look after yourselves, and we'll see you again soon.

  • Announcement: Seasons Greetings 2020 1:47

    Hi everyone, Alex here, I just wanted to take a moment to wish you all a happy and safe holiday season and give thanks to all of you who helped us get to where we are this year.  


    Obviously 2020 has been wild ride for everyone and we have all had to adapt and adopt new ways of working and living. Yet despite all these extreme circumstances Rusty Quill has managed to stand tall and we wanted to say thank you to everyone who has made this possible.


    Here at Rusty Towers, we started the year hoping for convention appearances and maybe some international travel; instead, we pivoted to fully remote working to keep all your favourite shows ticking along safely and launched new online content like the Enthusigasm podcast and our Twitch live streams. Not only that, we have continued donating towards the Covid Relief Fund every month and with your additional help through Gaming and Giving we have raised more than £55,000 pounds to charity this year. That is astounding.


    We are incredibly grateful to have such a skilled and dedicated team working with us and persevering through this year. But we never would have been able to make it anywhere near this far without the direct support of you, the listeners. 


    You’ve trusted us through thick and thin and thanks to you, we’ve managed to not only weather this year but even keep growing and start spinning up a load of new and exciting projects that you can look forward to in 2021. Your support has sustained the livelihoods of everyone here at Rusty Towers despite so much hardship and I know I speak for everyone here when I say that we will never forget your generosity and will continue to work to uphold the faith you show in us.


    As always, we have special holiday content running throughout the festive period to help put a spring in your step and even have a complete music album for Stellar Firma fans being released to public from the 25th of December through to the New Year’s Eve.


    We hope you and all your loved ones are happy and healthy this holiday. You are all amazing, truly amazing, and you all deserve the best new year possible.  


    Thank you so much, and happy holidays.

  • Announcement: Rusty Quill Gaming and Giving 2020 1:04

    Hey everyone!

    Mike here, Rusty Quill’s video guy and I’m pleased to announce that Rusty Quill’s Gaming and Giving will be back this year and we’re going digital!

    Come join in as we go live at 11am GMT on the 12th December on Twitch.tv with 24 hours of videogames, board games and general fun and frolics. Yes, that’s right, I said 24 hours.

    We’ve made a few changes to the show this year, one of which is that we’ll be raising money for three charities: Mind, Action Aid and the Black, African and Asian Therapy Network and anything we raise this year will be split evenly across all three of them.

    Last year, we managed to raise just over £10,000 in 12 hours and I’m confident that, with your support, we’ll raise even more this year! Plus, let’s just say there may be some... creative incentives for our viewers who donate.

    So tune in to www.twitch.tv/rusty_quill on Saturday 12th December at 11am GMT to help us kick off Gaming and Giving 2020 and let’s send this year off with a bang!


    This year, Rusty Quill Gaming and Giving 2020 will be raising money to support:

    Mind - https://www.mind.org.uk/

    Action Aid - https://actionaid.org/

    BAATN (Black, African and Asian Therapy Network) - https://www.baatn.org.uk/
