Candlekeep, Dungeons & Dragons, Mystery

Candlekeep Mysteries

Standing atop a rocky crag overlooking the Sea of Swords, the massive citadel of Candlekeep has endured the elements for centuries and defied the degradation of time. Visible for miles around, Candlekeep has an eye-catching silhouette: a high wall interspersed with towers. This wall encloses a large space from which more towers rise. Those who behold the edifice say it looks nothing so much as a cake decorated with an overabundance of candles.

A Book of Books

Candlekeep Mysteriesis an anthology of short, mystery-themed adventures written by members of the Dungeons & Dragons community. Each tale begins with a book found in Candlekeep—an enormous library located on the Sword Coast in the Forgotten Realms setting—but who knows where they may lead.

This book includes at least one adventure for characters of every D&D level from one to sixteen. Easy to run and playable in one to two sessions, they can be enjoyed individually or used as intriguing additions to a longer campaign.

Art included with Candlekeep Adventure

From the fabled Emerald Door to the deepest catacombs, Candlekeep contains wonders for those with the patience to find them.

Great Books Hide Their Secrets Well

Secret staircases, forgotten doorways, soaring shelves—this book provides Dungeon Masters with detailed descriptions of everything there is to explore and discover in the massive library fortress.

Familiarize yourself with every spire and cloistered corner with the included poster map. This foldout map provides full, isometric view of Candlekeep's Inner Ward—from the Great Library to the high-walled citadel known as Exaltation.

It seems silent and still, here in the heart of the forest. But to anyone who knows the forest well, that silence can be misleading. When you are ready to proceed, turn the page.

Seventeen Flavors of Mystery

Investigate mysterious murders, discover a hidden treasure map, or track down the secret behind an eerie rhyme. Every adventure in this book contains its own, unique flavor of mystery—quirky, classic, or even creepy.
