I’d suggest that my current players stay away from it as it will Spoil the Surprise(s).
A Broken Candle combines rules similar to those of Immergleich with a setting not unlike Beyond the Forest — 14th century Britain with modernised norms and fantastical elements. The most powerful influences are medieval history, folk horror films, action-horror video games like Bloodborne, and OSR/Post-OSR/ArtPunk D&D. There will be of course be meat, and there will of course be liquids.
Ahead of the first test session this week, here are key documents for A Broken Candle:
- The player-facing rules (live version on Google Docs)
- A Broken Candle chargen guide v1
- A Broken Candle char sheet v3
I have also started a Pinterest board to set the tone.
