This week, The Titor House lands in Nazca, Peru in the not-too-distant past, and the gang is ready for another zany mission in an exotic locale. However, when Mrs. Wells fails to turn up at breakfast and Freddie begins acting strangely civil, they soon discover that this will be an assignment like no other. It seems that Freddie has been here before, as the unwilling guest of an Adversarial wizard masquerading as a Peruvian drug lord, and after he was freed by a group of time travelers, he watched himself die. Knowing that their comrade is walking straight to his own demise, Dan, Malcolm, Patrick, Jack and Tyger do their best to mend fences and put their conflicts with Freddie in the past. But can they infiltrate a cartel stronghold and rescue Young Freddie without creating any grievous errors in the space-time continuum? Listen to find out!

NOTE: The Dreadful Secrets of Candlewick Manor is now on hiatus until further notice. As some of you may already be aware, Chris has been absent from our gaming circle for quite some time due to a prolonged illness. A few weeks ago, he was diagnosed with cancer. Thankfully, the prognosis is good, and he is currently undergoing treatment. We’ve decided to place this campaign on hold until he is once again able to resume his role as Cecil, as the unique tragicomedy of The Candlewick Home for the Unwanted and Unloved would not be the same without his jovial presence at the table. In the meantime, all of us at Rag-NERD-rok wish him a speedy and painless recovery.
Get well soon, buddy!
