Oh god I've spent a lot of money on Arc Dream stuff ever since listening to RPPR. Whee!
-A Dirty World
-Every Monsters and Other Childish Things book. ALL OF THEM
-Kerberos Club (And by extension, Wild Talents: EE)
-Call of Cthulhu (Though I wanted it before listening to RPPR)
-Masks of Nyarlathotep
-Fiasco!
-The Laundry series
-A few Kickstarters here and there.
-Oh, and Esoterrorists, Fear Itself, and the Book of Unremitting Horrors. I will use Clooties in my game some day!

I've actually gotten in to gaming because of the podcast.

When I was in high school, I gave the 6d version of The Star Wars Role Playing Game a try, but none of us really knew what we were doing. After a couple of sessions, we called it quits. Flash forward to this year, and I downloaded the Slenderman actual plays while I was home sick. These sessions got me through three days of illness. I was hooked. I think you can attribute everything I've purchased so far to the RPPR podcast. And I'm itching to try out Fear Itself.

I can't remember if I posted this but I bought FTL and Dungeons of Dreadmor thanks to the Video game thread here on the forums. Oh and Killing Floor, also in somewhere either in the podcast or on the forums someone mentioned that you can consume the creators of Delta Green on Prototype. I bought it and loved playing it.

I watched the movie Rubber, and the show Black Books because of the Podcast.

I tried 4th Edition DnD after the New World campaign proved to me you could do a good story telling based game in the system.

The list is pretty substantial... seeing as I've listening for about 3 years now.
42.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
If you can't fix it with duck tape you haven't used enough.
I intend to live forever -- so far, so good.

It is pretty baller. It's also the first crowd funded game we've done an AP on it.

If i may add an additional, if slightly sobering, part to this thread - What have you bought AND played/ran because of the Podcast?

I only ask because since listening to the podcast back in 2009 I've bought-
  • Eclipse Phase (with kindle edition short stories)
  • Fear itself, Esoterrorists and Book of unremitting horror
  • Monsters and other childish things (Including Road trip and Curriculum of Conspiracy)
  • Fiasco
  • New World of Darkness (with assorted Hunters and Changeling core and source books)
  • DnD 4E (with assorted source books)
  • Wild Talents
  • Numerous Delta Green Fiction
  • And Backed Caleb's, Adam Scott Glancy's and all of Ross' Kickstarters

Of all of the above I have run/played -
  • A short Campaign of Dnd 4e
  • A few Fear itself and Call of Cthulhu One-shots

Tbh This is more of a cathartic exercise for me.

Edit - Tell a lie, Ross ran a Monsters Skype game a while ago for one of his kickstarters so that counts.

Just (as in 5 minutes ago) purchased the Quiet Year after listening to the podcast. I have always been a bit of a map nerd and some of the reason I think I run games is to make maps. This is far from an uncommon position in the gaming community so I think they will have a far bit of people interested. I also crave the communal storytelling aspect that a good RPG has which this game also very much seems to foster.

I did not see any info on their site about con schedules but I hope they make it GenCon and host some games.

I've bought:
- Eclipse Phase
- Call of Cthulhu
- Wild Talents
- World of Darkness
- and backed a few of Ross' Kickstarters

I've at least ran a single one shot of each game so I guess my purchases were worth it.  :P
