I've just got to say, great minds think alike. I was this close to sending a group of 5th level PCs to Candyland, once. I might still do it, in the future.

Use this thread for reference on ideas. I rather like Twizzlor. I thought of him during work while it was slower than molasses and I was counting the candy in my drawer. I had a lot of twizzlers.

+1 to you sir

My mom is awesome: The guardians of Twizzlor's tower: Mike and Ike, jelly bean golems.

Props to your Mom.

Thinking about this a little makes me realize... [opinion] I'd rather have Mike & Ike around as bumbling NPCs. Basically like Hack & Slash the two henchmen employed by Megabyte in Reboot. [/opinion]

BUT I also brought Jelly Belly, the Jelly Bean Dragon who hoards jelly beans and has a different breath weapon depending upon the jelly bean Jelly Belly has eaten.


A grape-flavoured Gelatinous Cube, with pineapple chunks inside.

I have thought about trying something similiar ever since reading the first volume of the series The Stuff of Legend. The protagonists venture into a town that it an amalgam of board games and the mayor has the rulebook. It's a pretty fantastic read but in regards to the topic at hand a BBEG could still be a rulemaster overlord type that could be entirely insane a la Willy Wonka.

Willy Wonka would be a good BBEG.

Class: Alchemist (Goes by Confectionist)
Uses candies for extracts and mutagens, and molten molasses for bombs
Minions: Oompa-Loompas as Orange Derro as said by Voodoo Chili. Arm them with candy cane aklys and flasks of "confectionist's molasses"

Also this is the perfect time for oozes:
Black pudding, Ocre Jelly, Gelatinous Cubes. Now exactly what the name says.

Apparently, a similar discussion has occurred before. Here!!!!

Arazyr's suggestion of Vorpal Peeps is genius!


Perhaps one can draw inspiration from the upcoming live-action Candyland movie? I'm personally having trouble processing how such a film will be anything but amazingly terrible, but somehow it's going to happen. Link here

My favorite thing is that the producers "envision it as Lord of The Rings, but set in a world of candy.”

To anyone who still cares about this post:

after pitching Candeelande to a bunch of friends, I have decided that Candeelande is going to happen. It will be my summer project, and when it's done, I will put it online for downloads.

Those guys were awesome.

Other candy stuff could include sour power (maybe some kind of acid?) sour patch kids (who power their powers with sour power), and everlasting gob stoppers (which are like potions, but you can use them as many times as you want, although perhaps with a 1/day limit or something, and might have different effects every time).

There might be a war between the chocolates and the other candies.

Or the whole of candeelande might be in position to threaten the denizens of another demiplane, vegetalia or something like that.

good luck. In the vein of LOTR, I can see Candeelande facing an invasion by non-native Veggiepygmy hordes.

Happy to be of service. Also, this knowledge seemed like something I needed to share with other people. I'm hoping it will lessen my own suffering.

You kind of have to make this guy the King of Candeelande.

This can be his evil brother.

This could be a great intro module!


I just have two words: NERDs Swarm.

I was brainstorming a gingerbread house Baba Yaga type; I wanted candy monsters. Never did anything with it.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

A pimp called Sugar Daddy.

Candyman serial killer.

An evil dentist called the Tooth Fairy.

That Sugarman (?) from Age of Apocalypse who fought Generation NeXt.

What I meant (sry, had just medicated at that time, still feeling the pain) was as a way to intro younger kids into PF D&D. I did a pathetic 3.0 of Oz at a block party decade back for local kids that broke the local 'D&D is EVIL!' mind set. The parents were wandering in and out as 5 kids did the trip to the Emerald City. Loads of fun for them. Parents loved having the hellions quiet for better than an hour.

I read this whole thread to see if Sugardaddy had been suggested.

Don't forget the Sugarbabies either.

You could have candy beads on a rope and stat them up as constrictor snakes.

The party could equip Ring-Pops only to find out they're cursed.

TearJerker super-sour bubble gum could have a Hideous Laughter spell-like ability except it makes people cry instead of laugh.

The grisly scene of a bloodbath could be represented in Valentine hearts with creepy sayings, all covered in strawberry syrup. The sayings would be more like you'd expect on a tombstone than on a candy heart.

The map could be printed on a Fruit Roll-up, but oh no, it was a Fruit Roll-up Punch-Out and the X that marked the spot is gone!

The in-game currency would need to be chocolate coins, of course. But they'd be "evil" too in that keeping them too long would cause them to melt in your purse into a tiny brown ooze.

Some inspiration could be taken from Charlie the Unicorn too, with the candy seeming all sweet and cuddly, maybe even singing, before it tries to kill the party. "Charlieeeeee! We're going to Candy Mountain, Charlieeeee!"


I like the idea of an assassin simply named, "The Candyman" whose calling card is to leave candy hearts with his victims before he kills them.

GM: "You wake up the following morning to find something small resting on your forehead."

Player: "I check to see what it is."

GM: "It's a yellow candy heart, with the words "U R MINE" written upon it in blue."

Also, potions should totally be "Gushers."

And I just had the image of a PC picking up a piece of candy to eat it, and someone screaming "That's not candy! It's a pill!"

Thanks, grade school, for warning me that pills aren't candy!

The gunslinger with the candy cigarettes is a fun idea as well. I imagine him smoking them down to the filter, then folding them into his mouth, Ladykillers style.

I love almost everything in this post. Seriously. Will definitely use it.


If you need more inspiration, you could watch the "Strawberry Shortcake" series on Jaroo.

It's basically a 'kids in candy-land' cartoon.

Also, isn't there a candy called "the lemondrop kid"?

I think that one of these BBEG's needs guards who are all See's Candies.

That way, when the PC's arrive in his majestic hall, he can say in a loud, dramatic voice: "Seize Them!"

Hilarity ensues.
