Candlekeep attracts scholars like a flame attracts moths. Historians, sages, and other seekers of knowledge flock to this library fortress for one reason: its vast collection of books. But great books hide their secrets well. None more so than the tomes catalogued in Candlekeep Mysteries, each one a doorway to adventure.

Candlekeep Mysteries is a collection of seventeen short, stand-alone D&D modules designed for characters of levels 1-16. Each tale begins with the discovery of a book, and each book is the key to a door behind which danger and glory await. Dare you cross that threshold?

Telling these glorious tales are a collection of seventeen D&D adventure authors and Dragon+ got a chance to chat with all of them. They reveal what it was like being called into action, the enigma of a good mystery, and how your clothes dryer can be an essential aid when it comes to mapmaking.

Candlekeep Mysteries is released March 16, 2021 with an MSRP of $49.95. Alongside its seventeen mystery-themed adventures, it contains a poster map of the library fortress and detailed descriptions of Candlekeep and its inhabitants.
