About Black Candle Games

Welcome to the Inner Circle

We are a small publisher focused on creating inspired, accessible, and evocative supplements for tabletop RPGs. We also develop our own games and currently have a few in the works. If you'd like to see some of our releases, check here.

Who Even Are You People?

Collectively, we have decades of experience creating and running games. We also have the experience of 5 ENnies under our belt, as well as multiple best-seller medals on DriveThruRPG.

We've worked with some of the biggest publishers in the RPG industry such as Wizards of the Coast, Schwalb Entertainment, Kobold Press, and more.
While it's been great to work with them on an individual basis, we needed a space to call our own, and so we here we are.

Why We Need Your Support

Being a small publisher means it's almost impossible to fund good art, freelancers, graphic designers, and other talented folks to help us ensure our releases are among the best small publishers have to offer. We're committed to our mission of creating content at dwarven craftsmanship levels - this means no clip art, no bad Photoshop, page XX faux pas, clean and professional layouts, consistent aesthetics, and just plain good content. Patreon will not only help us achieve this, but will also provide opportunities to grow closer to our community.

Where Your Money Goes

All funds earned via Patreon will 100% be poured back into our work. This means it mainly pays for art, layout, and editing. Also, a small portion of these funds will go to general costs of operation such as annual domain registration, web hosting space, and desktop publishing software. We're just here to make great content that looks professional, we're not trying to get rich.

Your Rewards

For giving us some of your hard earned money we have a host of rewards you can check out over to the right. You can pitch in just a buck to keep on the up and up, a bit more to get playtest materials and Discord chat, and a bit more than that and you'll be able to help contribute to our creations and more. Our Cultist tier supporters also earn some sweet merch like stickers, coasters, and pins if they so desire. 

Thank You From All Of Us!

We know there's a ton of Patreons out there that are way more awesome than ours, so thank you for even dropping by and taking a look at ours. Hail!

$46.80 of $50 per month
If we're able to reach $50 / month, we'll start a monthly podcast where we discuss what's going on behind the scenes, take questions from our patrons, interview game designers and artists within the industry, and aggregate the biggest news stories from the tabletop scene over the past month.
