We present to you the winter-time incarnation of a tongue-in-cheek campaign based on some real-world holidays, complete with tropes and references in-game. These multi-table special events can be played in any order throughout the year and rewards from one can be carried over to other events in the campaign.
‘Twas the night before Nick’s Day, and all through the town
Not a child was stirring, they'd all hunkered down.
The windows were shut and the doors locked with care
For fear that the Jingleblade soon would be there.
The children all peered out from under their beds
While regrets for the year's bad deeds danced in their heads.
And mama in her chainmail, and dad with his axe,
Tensed at the sound of the rooftop ‘click-clacks.’
Then out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
And there stood old Nick—there was no fey man fatter.
The parents all wept for their bad girls and boys
Who would be magicked off and transformed into toys.
With the children all gone, there spoke not a soul;
Left behind in their places, there was naught but coal,
Which sat a memento, enshrining their plight,
As Nick’s dire reindeer flew off in the night.
