You too Selkie.

I'm on a high from having offed Morgoth with a half-elven blackguard last week.

Merry Christmas to you all

Merry Christmas! 'D'


The nasssty elvesses will attack you unprovoked; Father Christmas doesn't seem to attack at all. What a jolly old soul! He was helpful to me for target practice because I didn't yet realize you find the average damage/round for missile weapons by looking at their ammo details, not at the weapon details. ; ) So I used him as a big red pincushion, then left him some rations as a thank you.

The elves seemed to show up more frequently (25%?) than Father Christmas (10%?)--but going down to the first floor of the dungeon and popping right back out seemed to give them another chance to appear.

In the reading of Tolkien's "Father Christmas" letters that I listened to on YouTube, he all but maybe twice refers to his elves as "red," so I suppose that's why these are "red-hatted" (he once refers to other assistant elves, "green elves," distinct from the red ones). (Mostly though he was assisted by his sometimes bumbling yet good-hearted polar bear, named "Polar Bear.")

Yes, I just ran in to Father Christmas and his elves just the other day earlier this week.
