Dear Readers, as you can tell it is coming up to Christmas!
I just want to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas by sharing with you two adventures that I had purchased off of The DMs Guild (www.dmsguild.com).
How The Lich Stole Christmas by Wizard Sleeve Studios, Steve “Jaspor” Orr, and Bill Putrino
Currently on sale for $2.95.
The primer for this adventure is as follows:
“You’re a foul one, Mr. Lich
Your flesh smells like decay
For the crimes you have committed
There will be hell to pay
When the heroes come to save Christmas Day
“How The Lich Stole Christmas” is a short 3-4 hour one shot holiday adventure for characters of all levels. The encounters include variations for adventuring parties of each tier of play. The story unfolds through melodic rhymes that are certain to get the players into the spirit of the adventure.
Does your party have it what it takes to save Christmas?”
I have to admit that this is a wonderful one-shot adventure to run around the holidays. In fact, I ran it for the Ingrate last night to everyone’s delight (no, I did not mean to rhyme!).
Without spoiling it for any players out there, the entire adventure revolves around the concept surrounding the title, but is scalable from tier 1 all the way to tier 4. This ended up being really wonderful so that my party felt challenged as they went through the various encounters. There’s even an enjoyable puzzle in the middle of it as well. I highly recommend this one.
Danger In A Midwinter Wonderland: A Christmas One-Shot by Asa Wheatley
The primer for this adventure is:
Everyone has heard of the festival of Midwinter, the great Winter’s Father and his dutiful Toy Makers. They are the core of the Midwinter celebrations and there is no better place to visit than the Noel Isles and see the Winter’s Father in person during these celebrations. Each year the Toy Makers decorate the Isles with such splendour that it can only be fully appreciated in person.
But this year something foul is afoot, the Winter’s Father is missing and the Noel Isles are too quiet. Something is definitely wrong but you’re not quite sure what. All you know is that you sense Danger, in this Midwinter Wonderland.
I haven’t run this yet, planning on running it for the TPKs (my monthly game) this coming Wednesday night.
It has great reviews and is rated at four and a half stars. I greatly look forward to running this one.

Until next time, Dear Readers…
