Kevin White is running The Battle of Christmas Eve using Savage Worlds. What do you think your old teddy bears and toy soldiers do at night when you’re asleep? Just lie there and wait for you to play with them in the morning? Well, you’re wrong. They wake up and fight a bitter war against global toy terrorism, led by Oswald bin-Toybox and his fearless Mujafuzzeen fighters. Yes kiddies, that’s right—Toyland is at war, and your playthings are the frontline. Intelligence reports have led the director of TIC-TOC to believe a Mujafuzzeen cell is planning a Christmas Eve raid on the house of little Emily Winters, with the intention of making her Christmas Day a massive disappointment. Naturally, such foul activity can’t be allowed to succeed, and a small team of agents is sent to her house to save the day.
And on the other end of the spectrum, for those of you who want ADULT ONLY, maturer games, we’ve got you covered as well with:
Matthew Barrowcliff running Stuff of Tales in his own 1001 Tales. You are the toys of a pair of twin children. Until yesterday the worst things you had to defend Sophia and Jackson from were the monsters under the bed. But now they have been kidnapped and the giants who care for them are panicking. It’s up to you to rescue them – before they stop believing in you.
And finally, Phil Harris will be running One Cold Night in a Homebrew system. “The word was on the street, the Pretchart would rise tonight and with them, the very sense of the eternal, be that life or death. Now’t to be scared of but the time. Just keep the watches close, or you’ll not keep the beat.” Then they went, with the Heart of Wingter amongst them. And watched, ready to bash the brains out of any Pretchart that rose. Clubs, wrapped in razorwire and covered in nails, a worthy weapon for the hunter. Yet as they watched, and waited until the Pretchart were fully revealed, they heard the dreaded Hundrel. Its gentle voice belaying what lay within. Death!
