Written by Nicole on August 15, 2023
There is no rest for the wicked and thus no rest for Candela Obscura!
The fight against the otherworldly evils plaguing The Fairelands shall continue with a new three episode chapter that includes a new circle, a new gamemaster, and a whole new set of magickal foes.
On August 31st at 7pm Pacific, the Circle of Needle and Thread, will face off against a duplicitous threat wreaking havoc on the war-torn Fairelands. Our brave investigators will include Travis Willingham, Brennan Lee Mulligan, Zehra Fazal, Luis Carazo, and Marisha Ray, alongside our gamemaster and lead designer for Candela Obscura, Spenser Starke! Our trusted lightkeeper and co-creator Taliesin Jaffe will also continue to serve as the all-knowing steward for the audience.
While Chapter 2 is completely standalone and does not need previous knowledge of Chapter 1 to enjoy the story, we thought we’d include some helpful tips if this is your first time joining us!
What’s Candela Obscura & How Can You Play?
Candela Obscura is an ongoing monthly horror drama that follows an esoteric order of investigators as they use centuries of knowledge to fight back against a mysterious source of corruption and bleed. Leveraging gaming as a story mechanic, the series features the Candela Obscura tabletop roleplaying game from Darrington Press, which is built on the Illuminated Worlds system.
You can learn more about the Candela Obscura TTRPG by downloading our Candela Obscura Quickstart Guide and even find folks to play with over on our Darrington Press Discord. Be sure to also keep an eye out for the FULL Candela Obscura Rulebook by Darrington Press that will be releasing sometime at the end of 2023.
The entire first chapter of Candela Obscura is available to watch right now, along with some BTS videos of the character creation process and an in-depth interview from our inaugural gamemaster, Matthew Mercer, to give you insight into this whole new thrilling world.
