'TWAS - The Roleplaying Game Before Christmas

Tuesday, 1 January 2019

'TWAS - The Krampus Night Before Christmas, is now live on Kickstarter!

'TWAS - The Krampus Night Before Christmas is a brand new adventure gamebook (a multi-path book, very much in the style of Choose Your Own Adventure or Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks), inspired by the poem A Visit From Saint Nicholas, by Clement Clarke Moore. And the Kickstarter to fund it is now live!

'TWAS - The Krampus Night Before Christmas is a darkly festive fantasy adventure in which YOU, the reader, must battle the anti-Santa Krampus to save Father Christmas, and the festive season itself. Along the way you will take part in a dramatic sleigh ride and encounter various mythological Yuletide entities, before finally battling your way through Santa's workshop at the North Pole - if you make it that far!

From sentient snowmen to lethal toys, this gamebook has it all, and the icing on the cake is Tony Hough's fantastically dark artwork. Rewards on offer to backers include signed hardbacks, ARU game rolls, custom dice and playing cards, and a Stuffed Stocking reward, limited to 100 backers, which includes rewards worth over £100 for only £80.

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse...

And then the clock strikes thirteen and you wake to hear a thud downstairs. Investigating, you discover that your home has been invaded by two red-cloaked, and bearded, strangers.

Before you know what is happening, Krampus the Christmas Devil has abducted Santa Claus, and it's up to you to save Saint Nick before Christmas Day dawns and the cruel, birch-wielding, goat-leggéd one usurps his position and takes his place forever.

He knows if you've been good or bad, so be good for goodness sake...

There's a sackful of add-ons as well, everything from custom dice and playing cards to ARU dice trays and game rolls.
