I have a game "night" on 12/22. The plan is to play Roll Player, and then take them on a journey to "War in Christmas Village". I WELCOME ANY/ALL IDEAS AS TO WHAT TO DO. I thought I'd have fortune teller tell them to follow the white rabbit (ala Neo and the matrix and Jefferson Airplane). Then there is a bunny ("Cotton") with a gun belt slung over one shoulder. I'll have him running by saying "We're late!" over and over and "Come on! Come on then." here and there while waving his six shooter over his head. They have to follow or we can just start drinking. They'll get into a sheltered glen. The bunny then will say something like "Thank you for coming, but I have a feeling you're going to be sorry you did. By the way, I hope you like snow." Then the portal zips them to the north pole.
The 50,000 foot level premise is that there is a Krampus like woman named (a little help here). She was beautiful and popular once, but has since been transformed into an evil creature by a warlock that she spurned. So now she's determined to wipe out happiness in the world, and what a better start than to destroy Christmas from the inside out. She cast a spell over Christmas Village. She has Santa believing all children are not nice. Instead of giving toys that would be loved, he's got the elves developing deadly toys. Note: The elves are happy to oblige, as they are tired of making toys for kids and then seeing them ignored because it's not an electronic device. So far they've created evil toys like Chuckie, treent Christmas trees, and mimic presents. The reindeer are also affected by the spell. Rudolf has started turning into a zombie, and Blitzen has taken to walking on 2 legs, drinking, shooting, and smoking Camels.
Anyhoo, Mrs Claus sees the changes in her husband (and elves, reindeer, et.al.) but can't convince him that what he's doing is wrong. Others like her (of strong constitution), have been quietly banding together to figure out what's going on and try to fix the problem. The Easter Bunny and Burl Ives Snowman are allies of Mrs Claus. The snowman has some magic ability of his own, and creates a portal for the Easter Bunny to bring heros to help save Christmas.
Note: When Santa flies off on Christmas eve, if the house is inhabited by Michigan fans that never went to the school (aka Walverines), he's to put lumps of coal in their stockings and bludgeon any children found inside with the coal sock. Madam Krampus may be evil and all, but if she's going to eat children, it might as be little Walverines. The world would be a better place less of them strutting around.
I have the Christmas Treent (how evil are your branches) and packages, fighting elves, and these. The top link I have in my hot little hands (where bunny ideas came from), but the bottom two have to ship yet. They say the 12th for ship date, but I live about 10 miles from a distribution center, and sometimes I get lucky and things ship fast if the items are in that distribution center and another deliver is going to my street. So bear that in mind when making suggestions.
I'll post more pictures as I take them. The elves are done, and the evil toy is close to being done.
