Candela Obscura (bestowed the hashtag #CandelaObscura) is a new tabletop roleplaying game that places you in the roles of investigators working for an esoteric order. In this game of gothic horror, individuals of varied talents are brought together under the organization Candela Obscura. You’ll pursue strange occurrences and encounter dangerous magicks, fighting back against a mysterious source of corruption and bleed. Candela Obscura is the first to use the Illuminated Worlds System, a newly designed system that uses 6-sided dice and lends itself to narrative, arc-driven play.
Candela Obscura is being showcased in a deeply atmospheric monthly actual play series from Critical Role! Tune in first on May 25th at 7pm Pacific on Critical Role’s Twitch and YouTube channels. Read more about the show in its announcement!
