So the storybook states that each Candlepoint mission is a preview of what the Saints will face in the upcoming Chapters.

And it's suggested you start with "Shirts and Skins" AKA "Enter Here", since that is obviously the preview for the included Skinwalkers chapter.

I haven't really studied the Candlepoint missions in depth (since I like to be seeing missions new when I play them), but does anyone know the correlation between which Candlepoint mission ties to what upcoming chapter?

I think I'd probably like to play the ones first that match up with whatever the first expansion (The Flesh?) to hit retail will be.

Thanks for any info.
Dave

From the KS page, we know that ...

The Flesh (Box 2) contains Deathless, Fae, Golems, and Physicians
The Devil (Box 3) contains Animus, Damned, Dreamers, and Serpents

If you look at the Candlepoint Missions, and the Masters/Minions ...

Spoiler (click to reveal)
... you might notice that:
Taking the Plunge: Wendigo is Deathless
In Cold Blood: Vital Fluid is Physicians
Detox: Kudzu is Animus
The Finish Line: EMT is Physicians
The Best of All Festivals: {no clear mapping}
Faust Company: Crystal Mephistopheles is Damned
Shirts and Skins: The Mancubs are Skinwalker
No Way Out: Hay Man and Dust Bunny are Dreamer
Christmas in Candlepoint: Gryla, Yule Cat, Yule Lads are Fae

You might "cross off the list" those with exactly one mapping, then think the other missions might preview a chapter's mechanics/theme (not just keyword).

That's how I see it. For now, anyway!

Actually...

Spoiler (click to reveal)
I do believe that In Cold Blood represents the Serpents chapter with the cultists

And the Best of All Festivals is a Golem chapter with the Wardriver being after all the partiers.

They just seem a little more obscure references without knowing details about the particular stories each book offers. That also gives one teaser for each upcoming Book.
