Talking Red-Hatted elf

Just came back to the town for supplies and I see several drunk "Red-hatted elves"! (attached screenshot) Awesome christmas easter egg, caught me entirely by surprise. Can't find any reference to them anywhere online so not sure if they pop up for everyone?

Now... should I embrace the yuletide sprit or just slaughter them all? Decisions... decisions...

If you're really good, they might have a friend.

I deliberately didn't include them in the changes file so it would be a surprise They pop up for everyone. Some people hate them, but you can comment them out easily enough if so.

I'm new to version 4...I've played a grand total of four games. I had just started a new human priest character in the wee hours of the morning this Christmas day. When I saw the "h" running toward me in town, right at the very beginning of the game, I thought, "Oh goodie! Farmer Maggot showed up right away so I can get a good item, right at the start." I thought the red coloring was just a change in the new version. Yep, good ol' Farmer Maggot...

Imagine my surprise when the red-hatted elf killed my priest before I even had a chance to do anything. I tried to flee, really I did, but it was to no avail. Darned red-hatted elf.

I'm going to go drown my sorrows in egg nog now...

Saw several drunk red-hatted elves yesterday but no other special visitor in several visits to town. Perhaps because my Ranger killed the first red-hatted elf he came across?

Is there really supposed to be another character? I only saw the elves before they accidentally (and repeatedly) met my trident....

I saw him two years ago (he's still in my monster memory) but not last or this year.
