Next up in DM Panic: a last minute toolbox of NPCs to help spice up your next Christmas themed session. It’s basically if Christmas and Robin Hood met in the middle!
Our holly, jolly squad of NPCs have lived in the Feywild their entire lives, and I suggest having players sucked into the Feywild by whatever means you seem fit and then have them bump into Janus who should be adorable and charming. If the players are mention anything having to do with wealth then Janus mentions Claw, while Kringle should either attack or yell with concern for Janus, who is his friend.
Players then learn more about Claw Hammertime, an lawful-evil fey in league with Jack Frost the ice hag to expand their respective power. While Kringle and Janus have no hard proof, both are sure that the two are working together. Really, Jack Frost is just using Claw, but since Claw has an immediate payoff he thinks he’ll win in the end.
The main idea includes having Claw run a factory where all the elf orphans live and work and having that factory make something for Jack Frost. Ideally Kringle could know of a purer or good use for that same thing, or could turn the factory into one that makes toys and pays the elf children and provides them comfortable lives.
Here’s some brief information on our NPCs:
