A Christmas-themed adventure? Definitely not my style. Or so I thought. This is a clever adventure with a great mix of humor, adventure, and challenge. It's not just a Grinch knock-off, it's not yet another edgy Krampus story. It's its own animal, and I really appreciate that.
The writing is top notch, the care that went into the design is readily apparent, and the sense of humor meshes great with my own. Is it fun? Absolutely. Is it worth the price? 100% Is it solid and standalone without taking itself too seriously? For sure. Is it slapstick and silly and super over the top whimsical? Nope. It's just right in tone and design so that it can fit into just about any game if the DM were so inclined to run it, Christmas or no. I appreciate that, too.
Christopher Walz is a talented creator that many of his peers could learn a thing or two from. I wouldn't normally want to play an adventure like this, but I gladly spent the few bucks to pick this one up because I enjoyed his other work (and you would, too), and I wasn't disappointed.
If you like fun, pick this one up. If you don't, you're a sad person and I feel bad for you, but pick it up anyways. Maybe you'll learn something useful.
