Well, geeks, it’s that time of year again. Where we gather around the fire, telling stories, and sharing in the joy and cheer of being around those we love. Or, well, we would if it weren’t 2020. So in that spirit, I’ve put together a Dungeons & Dragons holiday adventure for you to play with whomever you can get on Roll20 or another VTT (or even around a table if you’re lucky enough to have folks with you to play).
Someone Save Santa!
In terms of what the module is about, I’m pretty proud of the cover copy and introduction synopsis:
Oh, no! Something’s wrong in the toy factory! Santa has been bamboozled, and his workshop is overrun with frosty foes, wintry wrongdoers, and North Pole ne’er-do-wells.
A team of Santa’s elves manage to escape the workshop warzone and recruit a party of adventurers to go take back toyland.
Can our heroes muster enough cheer and joy to make sure all the good girls and boys get their holiday gifts? Or will everyone forever get stockings full of coal…whether they’re on the Naughty List or Nice?
A Gift to the Whole World
How’s that for some egotistical self-aggrandizing, huh? But really, I originally conceived and wrote “Claus for Concern” as a holiday bonus for subscribers of the Geek to Geek Media Patreon as a companion to the holiday issue. But the further I got into it, I thought it was too much fun not to put on DMs Guild, too (as a Pay What You Want title, at that — even $0).
Now, this particular adventure is designed to be a stand-alone Christmas quest. But with a few tweaks here and there, it could very easily be incorporated as a side story into any arctic campaign you have going. And with the popularity of the Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frosmaiden campaign setting, “Claus for Concern” can be slotted into any of the Ten Towns.
Go Forth and Bring Merriment!
I hope you all enjoy the module and that maybe in one of the toughest years many of us have faced, we here at Geek to Geek could help spread just a little bit of cheer. So head out and get ready to smash some snowy bugbears, frazzle some frost elementals, and put some sprites and mephits on ice.
