D&D: Tales from Candlekeep

2 Minute Read
Sep 7 2017

Tales from Candlekeep is a turn based dungeon crawl/board game that brings you into Chult.

The Dungeons and Dragons Adventure System board games–so Wrath of Ashardalon, Castle Ravenloft, et al. are a bunch of games that take adventures/dungeon crawls and translate them into a board game that you can play with your friends or alone. Each game uses pregenerated characters and encounters with familiar monsters to thrust adventure upon you.


And now Wizards has announced a digital version of one of those games, with Tales from Candlekeep: Tomb of Annihilation. Based on the adventure system board games, Tales from Candlekeep will take players through Chult. They’ll take command of an adventuring party tasked with tackling the ever-present Death Curse that has been levied against the Realms. Only the brave will survive the danger that lies in wait in the jungle-haunted ruins of Chult.
