Default [DF] Christmas Elves

Christmas Elves
20 points


The story of the Christmas Elves is a sad one. They were the greatest artificers of the Elves - their magical rings, enchanted swords and light-as-silk mail helped adventurers everywhere kill goblinoids and other evil creatures. But the great Demon Lord Klaas conquered them and set them to work for him in his frozen lands in the extreme north. Now they spend their time making cheap toys and gaudy jewellery for the Demon Lord to curse and send forth to corrupt the minds of the young.

Advantages: Artificer 2 [20]; Gifted Artist 2 [10]; Magery 0 [5]; Musical Ability 1 [5]
Disadvantages: Social Stigma (Subjugated) [-20]
Features: Bronze or steel gray hair

Personally, I would declare Christmas Elves to be a kind of gnome.

If I had mad video editing talents and more patience that I'll ever have I would make an "Elrond vs. Santa Claus" video.

I think Klaas is a hell-infused gnome that rose through power by selling his brown, carbonated mind-control drink... :)

Because they're short and chubby? That's because Santa is big into child-labor.

This thread has the potential to be F-ing awesome.

Who's going to make the "reindeer?" The malicious elf-made golem "toys" (some of which are Frankensteinian horrors)?

Mrs. Klaas needs to be a hawt succubus with a whip. I love succubi. Also, I've been a bad boy. XD

I was did a fun one-shot where Santa was a demented slave master who insisted on calling his enslaved Gnome tinkerers "Elves". Plenty of gimmick weapons (candy cane hook-staff, throwing tree-stars, etc.) and and critters (both gingerbread and snow golems, reindeer using the stats for Nightmares). Good ol holiday fun.

Santa, his elves and even his reindeer are part of my Tir Afon setting. That helps explain why Arctic explorers have never found Santa's workshop...it exists in the Beyond World.

Nah, they're related to the Baking Elves, aka the Keeblers.

Who I'd also classify as gnomes.

Consider this idea officially stolen by a veteran YTPer. Oh, wait, I don't have any videos of Elrond or Santa Claus. Never mind.
