This is a tale of sorrow and woe, waiting only for you to tell it.
The Dreadful Secrets of Candlewick Manor sees doleful foundlings with murky pasts in a great, dreary orphanage filled with dangerous truths. Players together face the monstrous dangers of their new home and uncover their own forgotten secrets.
Can you learn the truth of your own sad history? And can you make friends with the monster at the bottom of the well? How about the one in the rickety old mill? Or the one in the cave by the sea? Or the one. . . .
The Dreadful Secrets of Candlewick Manor is a sourcebook for the roleplaying game Monsters and Other Childish Things, written by Benjamin Baugh and illustrated by Rob Mansperger. It features ghouish humor, grin-worthy chills, and innovative guidelines for creating storylines and characters all loaded with mystery.
Ennie Award nominee for Best Setting.
While reading "Candlewick
my girlfriend checked on me repeatedly. Why?
On at least one occasion I was laughing so hard
I couldn't breathe, on others I was described
as producing "Wicked cackling," and "Unsettling
'Oohing' noises." — RPG.net
"Dreadful Secrets of Candlewick Manor" is a delight! . . . [It] should be in every GM's library, if for no other reason than for the creative juices it brings to the surface while being read. — Prism, the magazine of the British Fantasy Society
If you enjoyed "Monsters"
but weren’t quite sure what to do with
it then "Candlewick" clearly shows you. For
childish adventure with a strong dose of creep
factor thrown in for good measure you can’t
beat "Candlewick." — RPG.net
