I ran a game of Candlewick Manor at Gencon 2009 for 7 lucky players including my co-host Tom Church. In short, bad things happen to weird children. The new orphans of Candlewick find themselves confronted with a lake monster, the strange residents of Candlewick township and more! What a tangled web we weave…
After defeating the lich Numeides, the Water Barons find themselves embroiled in a number of intrigues and mysteries. Their agendas often collide, leading to deception and distrust.

Find out what schemes are unfolded in this episode. Thanks to Violet for the art, (which has nothing to do with this episode but it looks cool).
A group of unwary party goers finds themselves caught in a forgotten nuclear fallout bunker from the Cold War.

Enjoy!
Designed as the ultimate daycare center, Las Vegas’ Sucrose Park looks after thousands of kids while their parents gamble away their college tuition in nearby casinos. A corporate wonderland of rides, ball pits, arcades and the mascot CoolRat await. Too bad the owner of the park never wants anyone to leave. Ever. Instead, when the parents come to pick up their kids, a robot duplicate is given to them and few parents notice the difference. After all, they’re too concerned with how much money they just lost. The players discover that the owner is a monster who decided that it couldn’t be friends with just one kid, it had to be friends with all children. All the neon lights and laser tag arenas can’t hide the fact that Sucrose Park is a prison. It’s time to break out.
