Sorry, been a little preoccupied lately with a new game. PRAISE THE SUN!

Lemme tell you a little story about Kurok, the nephew of Saint Klaus. Kurok is a kender, raised by his uncle, who is king of the snow elves.

Yes, I did tell the other players that santa is a kender. Yes, there was much anger that day.

That is bizarrely specific for a race.

It's very complicated. They have a tendency to pick up "lost" things to return when they find an owner. Lost can be cutlery and plates lying on the main dining table in a castle just before a meal is due to be served, or a ring that's been left on a dressing table.

Add to this their terrible memory for where they picked things up, they're wanderlust, and their tendency to pick up anything that looks important or valuable "to return later", and you can see why their entire homeworld views them as thieves...

They are also very unpopular among players, due to having poor racial abilities and terrible reputations. Also, the fact they're very roleplay heavy plays no small part.

Why do people bother playing tabletop RPGs if they don't want to role play?

Because tactical combat is fun, seeing exactly how many different by the book threats your Shadowcraftmage/Incantrix monstrosity can destroy before finally making a mistake or watching a WhirlPounce barbarian deal quintuple digit damage to creatures designed to tank a d10 for 3 or 4 rounds at most. Basicly think Conan "to crush my enemies, see them driven before me and to hear the lamentations of their women"

Fighting. That, and seeing how badly they can break a class. It's what keeps me playing. I love nothing more then creating a PC who is waaaay more powerful then they should be.

Aren't Kender immune to fear as well? Or is that just a Dragonlance thing?

"Saved Santa"

There was the time we ran a one shot 4th edition game where Jack Frost hired Krampus to attack Santa's village, then sent a giant army of snowman constructs to lay siege to it. So Santa flew us to Jack Frost's lair with Krampus' sack that held a special weapon. We snuck through, killing a few of his ice-yeti goons, before we found him. Then we opened the sack and the pixie started the giant model train with 3 cars full of alchemists' fire. The train flew out of the sack and crashed into Jack, causing all three cars to explode. Jack took a ridiculous amount of damage and died immediately, while the pixie managed to survive because he gave himself some relatively good fire resistance and because the damage came in a barrage of smaller attacks, rather than one big one. In the end, after using as much healing as possible during the meltdown, he survived with a single hit point.

And that's how three of us saved Christmas at level 3.

""Skyfall""

So we were playing a 4e Eberron campaign, and Sinter Klaus turned out to be a kidnapping old man who lived on a floating island with his band of elite reindeer warriors. Every year he would take the naughtiest child in the city of Sharn and bring him to his sky-island to work in his factory till death. We were charged with recovering the child by his mother. Of course we forgot to ask her for any specifics about her son, such as a name, or description... Anyway, we went to the magebreeders, who happened to have an escaped reindeer named Randolph for hire. The reindeer were kind of like hengeyokais. Anyway, Randolph, a bitter, sarcastic slave, begrudgingly flew us up to the sky-island, where we entered a gladitorial contest to become magically transformed into Sinter Klaus' next reindeer. We had to fight each other and finally, after much silliness and roleplaying, we were brought into the castle. We fought through the reindeer elite, and were faced between grabbing the kid first or facing Sinter Klaus. We decided on the boss fight first, because we were all itching to take him down. The fight went well, but killing Sinter Klaus caused the magic holding the island in the sky to fail, so we rushed as fast as we could to retrieve the child. After getting him, we looked out the window and say we were about a mile and a half up still (apparently we were REALLY high up). So we decided that our crane hengeyokai rogue/assassin could make it on her own, but the drop ranger and my bugbear cleric would try to hold onto the war forged wizard while he used his fly spell. Well, we jump out the window as the wizard casts the spell, and for about one round the ranger and my cleric hold on. But we begin to slip, and I fall off his neck, grabbing his leg. The ranger loses grip completely, as do I , and we plummet down. The wizard teleports below us, and I grab on again, but the ranger fails, and the wizard uses another spell to teleport below again. This time, the ranger and I both miss the grab, and the wizard uses his last teleportation ability to get below us, but we both fail and fall about 350 feet to the ground. I splat instantly, but the ranger still had enough hp left from earlier to survive unconscious, but is buried under falling rubble from the sky-island falling on top pf Sharn. The wizard and hengeyokai start digging furiously, but one turn before they reach him, the ranger failed his last saving throw and passed away... So ended half our party, and there were many tears. But! we saved the kid, and no more naughty children would be kidnapped in the future! My next character I played in the campaign was- you guessed it- the kid we saved. I made him a paladin :)

I'll have one next week. So far all my AD&D group's monthly games have been holiday-themed...
I do have a moderately cheesed half-Giant Lich santa burning a hole in my notebook, lest I should ever need an epic-level encounter in 3.5 or Pathfinder on short notice.

"World War X"

I actually came up with this story idea and encourage anybody interested to use it if they want to make a silly campaign for Christmas.

Christmas is a wonderful time of year, but it can also be awful if you haven't been on your best behavior. We all know and love the jolly man Santa Claus, but far fewer of us recognize the terror that is Krampus. Krampus wants everyone to be naughty so he can give the world coal and whip all the naughty boys and girls to his shriveled heart's content. People who don't believe in Christmas, or do but are still unpleasant, are secretly agents of Father Krampus bent on bringing their sadistic master's dream into reality. Cue up the heroes! Your mission, should you choose to accept it! Battle the Agents of Krampus and their spreading of hate by spreading love and joy and giving gifts to those you love and people you don't even know!
Throw in a mini-boss battle with a Hobo Overlord and grant the players a Present Cannon and you'll have yourself a pretty fun night.

Remember: Bitches love cannons!

"Before you start"

"Oh yes, Alucard, I'd love to know why you shot, and killed, FATHER CHRISTMAS!"
"He startled me."

Alucard in HUA is much like many Roleplayers I've known.
