Who We Are

We are a small team dedicated to making delightfully dark, fresh, and fun content for your favorite tabletop RPGs with our primary focus being on Schwalb Entertainment’s Shadow of the Demon Lord. Our team consists of two dudes with beards that have a penchant for drinking beer and telling stories, and one lady dedicated to keeping them in line. When we’re not working on game material we’re lurking somewhere on the internet, mining for precious memes or playing video games.

Jerry is a seasoned freelance writer for tabletop RPGs, having worked for publishers such as Wizards of the Coast, Kobold Press, and of course Schwalb Entertainment. He is often grumpy.

Ben has been running and playing games for most of his life, crafting custom worlds and stories for his players. He rarely wears pants.

(yes we placed our names out of alphabetical order so you won’t make ice cream jokes at us)

Angela is a lifelong gamer and helps the team reign in their words and procrastination levels. She is always organized, and almost always cold.

What We Believe

Black Candle strives to create adventures and supplements for your games that not are not only evocative and unique, but are also accessible and quick to use. We’re all about that low-prep life for running games because being an adult is hard. We also aim to make an impact by leaving your mind alight with new ideas about where to take your players next after reading one of our adventures.
