Presented here for your holiday entertainment is a collection of Krampuses—a bundle of badness who are intent on leaving behind lumps of coal and teaching a few fear-inspired lessons for a trio of game systems! So, tell your players to be good, lest the Krampus come into play while on their watch!

The third Krampus in our collection has found a dark, dark place within the*AGE system. OH NOES!

Entangle: Krampus can perform a special entangle stunt for 2 SP after a successful attack with its chain whip. The target must make a successful TN 14 Dexterity (Acrobatics) test or become immobilized. Krampus can drag immobilized characters, dealing 1d6 extra damage per round. The target or an ally can free the victim by taking a major action and making a successful TN 15 Strength (Might) test. This is the only action an immobilized character can take until freed.

Tough Hide: Krampus’s tough hide grants it an AR of 3.
