About the adventure

👗A stunning new dress at the world's greatest exhibition👗 💀A stunning turn of events as the model collapses into bones and ichor 💀 🔍A stunning adventure as YOU enter the scene🔍 Critical Role's newest TTRPG promises adventures of mystery, intrigue, drama, chicanery, and maybe a little bit of tomfoolery. Enter a Victorian era supernatural organization, uncover clues, and fight evils. This is a one-shot intended to teach new players how the simple Candela Obscura system works and flex the system before its full release. Come try out some storytime with yours truly, a professional improviser, as we delve into the most Obscura of Candelas. Or something like that.
