YMMV / Rusty Quill Gaming

Go To

  • Acting for Dozens: As the Dungeon Master, Alex plays a wide variety of NPC roles.
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: For Liliana. Whether she's a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing or a victim of her circumstances depends largely on whether you believe that Gideon is manipulating her in the same way that he did Hamid.
  • Archive Panic: Over 140 episodes and counting, clocking in at 40 minutes to 1 hour each, just in the main canon, as well as regular special non-canon episodes.

  • Friendly Fandoms: With The Magnus Archives — unsurprising, given that they're two of the Rusty Quill's biggest shows. All of Rusty Quill Gaming's players have featured as voice actors in The Magnus Archives and many of The Magnus Archives's voice actors have been guest players in Rusty Quill Gaming's specials.
  • Idiosyncratic Ship Naming: Several.
    • Aphroguedite for Azu/Sasha, as a combination of "rogue" (Sasha's class) and "Aphrodite" (Azu's god).
    • Palapals for Azu/Grizzop, the group's two paladins.
    • Riverbank for Zolf/Hamid, as a nod to Zolf's connections with Poseidon and the al-Tahan Family Business.
  • Launcher of a Thousand Ships: It's hard to find a notable male character that hasn't been shipped with Oscar Wilde.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • "But we respect his craft" every time Alex twists the story in an even darker direction.
    • Describing Mooks as "lads and/or blokes."

  • One-Scene Wonder: Both Grag and The Channel Tunnel Train Driver provided surprisingly long-lasting memes, to the point that both KEEEEEESH and DOOOOOOOM (their respective Signature Quotes) can be found on official merchandise.
  • Portmanteau Couple Name: Loads. Notable examples include Zamid (Zolf/Hamid), Zilde (Zolf/Wilde), Sazu (Sasha/Azu), Hazu (Hamid/Azu), Wildezop (Wilde/Grizzop) and the surprisingly creative Amstahan (Grizzop/Hamid.)
  • Shipping: Almost every combination of any of the player characters has a ship associated with it... even characters who haven't met.
