I am pleased to release an original and all new holiday adventure for Yuletide 2019, featuring the ancient folkloric demon known as Krampus and, making his first appearance in my holiday adventures, Jólfaðr the Yule Father.
SYNOPSIS: In this adventure your players will meet and help the inhabitants of the small seaside community of Taigh-Solais an Iar (which translates to South Lighthouse in Common) on a dark and snowy Midwinter’s Eve. The village is known far and wide for its eponymous lighthouse and its maritime treasures. It is normally a tranquil and peaceful place, but trouble has come to this once staid village...in the the form of the demon Krampus!
For unbeknownst to the human villagers, Krampus and a group of evil demi-humans have invaded their territory, and they are holed up in the ancient gnomish Thunderwhistle Mines in the mountains above the village. From there Krampus' shadow gnome and dark elf minons have struck at the village on Midwinter’s Eve, stealing all their children from out of their beds, cribs and basinets!
Stumbling upon this tragedy by happenstance, your players will be tasked with going after the invaders, defeating Krampus and his allies, and return the children safe and sound.
Only your players can save Yuletide!
This supplement contains a completely original ONE SHOT adventure, which was written in the same vein as the classic Old School dungeons of yore! Inside you will find great Old-school art, a dungeon map with keyed encounters for each area and a detailed Old School world map of Dùn Bhriste, with information for further exploration. This book also contains fiur new monsters and three new magic items for use in your home campaign.
The version of Krampus presented here first appeared in the module “SO5 Krampusnacht” (2017); he made another appearance in “SO12 Return of Krampus” (2018); and the beastie was also featured in a separate 2018 supplement, “SM1 Krampus for OSR”.
