About the adventure

There are many things you may have expected to find in the greatest library of the realm, but your party now finds itself racing against the clock to prevent a barnyard cult's scheme. A janitor's death, poorly named cultists, and adventure await you! Will you make it in time? The Candlekeep Mysteries are 17 short adventures that allow your adventuring party to play detective and solve unsolved crimes, right past wrongs, and prevent fiendish plots! Candlekeep attracts scholars like a flame attracts moths. Historians, sages, and others who crave knowledge flock to this library fortress to peruse its vast collection of books, scribbled into which are the answers to the mysteries that bedevil them. Many of these books contain their own mysteries—each one a doorway to adventure. Dare you cross that threshold?

Additional Details

How to prepare

1. A mic and Discord account will be needed to join the server in which we will be running the game. I will have my webcam on, but you are not required to have yours on. Roleplaying is encouraged, but not expected. Play how you want and have fun. Dice rolls can be made however you feel comfortable (Dndbeyond, Discord, Google, physical dice). If you don't care about what character you play, I can have characters available for you to play. 2. We will also be using Owlbear Rodeo as a Virtual Tabletop, so being able to open it up in a browser will be needed. If you are playing on a mobile device, or can not easily access the browser for some reason I will be streaming my screen via Discord. There is no account needed for Owlbear Rodeo. You just click the link I send you , and BOOM you see the map and can move around your token!

What I provide

Virtual character sheets, maps, and story related visuals.

Gameplay details

Each adventure in this anthology embraces one of the following narrative conceits: The characters discover a book in the library that contains a mystery. Getting to the bottom of this mystery requires embarking on an adventure. Safety Tools: Before the game, we will establish Lines and Veils for the limits the group feels comfortable with. Content Warning: Everyone has different thresholds for what they feel comfortable with. The mysteries have varying degrees of violence, and by discussing with the table I make sure to use levels of detail that everyone feels comfortable with. Players are always free to let me know if adjustments need to be made. During play, players can call for a script change, The characters come to Candlekeep on a quest for information, perhaps to solve a crisis elsewhere in the world. During their research, they uncover a book and the mystery it contains, which leads to adventure. These short adventures work best with players who like mysteries and discovering their secrets. That said, each adventure contains opportunities for exploration, roleplaying, and combat, to appeal to players of all persuasions.
