The case of Candela Obscura Chapter 3 The Circle of Tide & Bone

Candela Obscura Chapter 2 featuring the Circle of Needle & Thread has only just concluded and already Critical Role is ready to show off the next Circle for Candela Obscura Chapter 3: The Circle of Tide & Bone. The first episode of Candela Obscura Chapter 3 will release on November 30th.

As with every new Chapter in the Candela Obscura series so far there's a full flip of the cast including the GM. Stepping in to replace Spenser Starke, GM of Chapter 2 and Designer of Candela Obscura, is Aabria Iyengar whose works previous include Exandria Unlimited Calamity and the DM of Burrow's End, the current Dimension 20 season.

The cast includes Critical Role founding members Sam Riegel and Liam O'Brian alongside Noshir Dalal, Gina Darling, and Ashly Burch. At this time we have no additional information on what Role or Speciality each cast member will be. The official press release does tease that the Circle of Tide & Bone "will grapple with their inner demons and confront ancient phenomena that seep from the foundations of Newfaire".
