Shadoweagles Twisted Christmas
A christmas gift to my fellow citadelians, made in my favourite medium. Of course, you all know what my gifts are like. But hey, Christmas is a time of giving!

Seated in this small wooden chair, in the basement of the Tavern, I think. The smell of commotion and taste of grog in the air cling to me as i sit in this darkness, pondering how I might give something back to this Citadel. After all, in eight days, I will have been a resident in this place for a year - though it feels a lifetime - and it is time to stop taking and start giving to those who have housed me and fed my twisted thoughts.
Of course, this time is the time of festivities, friendship and giving - though all three of those curl my tongue in distate, a debt must be repaid.
'Drinks all 'round!' shouts a garbled, penguinesque voice from above the thick floorboards in the tavern.
Hmmm, yes. Giving, is how I shall repay them.
Laughter? Oh, its my own laughter. 'How I shall repay them', how amusing - sounds more like a threat than a gesture of kindness.

Well, the pendants are crafted: Three hundred amulets of metallic christmas trees - a burned look to them and twisted slightly - was probably too many, but any that I do not give away, I will throw into the portal out of here - people in other worlds might benefit from them.
Tonight, I shall enchant these amulets with a charm of generosity - those who wear these items will feel the need to give to others. Yes, such a thing will bring that so-called 'christmas cheer' into the citadel! AH! But we cannot have people taking these pendants off to remove the effect before christmas! I should implement something to prevent that...
I shall dispense these amulets throughout the citadel tomorrow.
This ought to give people a smile after that recent unfortunate attack...
Oops, it seems Shadoweagle 'accidentally' slipped in casting the enchantments in these pendants. Indeed, they DO give the wearer an intense sensation of generosity and compassion - to the extent that they will not even be able to take the life of someone attacking them - and once someone places one of these pendants upon himself, it is bonded to the person, until 11:59pm of Christmas day when the bond is released. The bond is released until the new year, where it will take effect once more, if it's still worn.
The 'oops' factor of these items, is that from 12:01am on Christmas day, the properties of the pendant is reversed, and an intense sensation of greed overwhelms whoever wears them. :) Merry Christmas everyone.
Ps. Several hundred of these items will be thrown through the portal leaving the Citadel nexus, into random worlds (even non-magic worlds). The effect is the same, except if that world doesnt have a 'christmas', any day of holiday can be substituted. The bond is always released the day after the holiday and day of greed.

A fairly safe item, considering I made it, but greed can do a lot of things :)
I posted this early because Im going away on holidays from the 16th and might not get on to post.
Have a good christmas, everyone.
So, I think we should get more generous with writng, aye? Posts away! *wheeeeeeze* *thump*
Tis a time for giving, and a time for cheer, a time to bury the citadel in plots, postings, and grog or beer! Festive and twistedly fun my black robed friend.
The generosity has me in it's cold, cold grip. 5/5

It is the greatest of shames that the black-robed one is so seldom seem in the Citadel any longer. This post is worthy

Christmas, again. Bringing this forth as it is now almost a tradition. Merry Christmas to you all!... And a happy new year!
Merry Christmas to the Citadel and a very Happy New Year!
Woah. Old school. Nifty, though it could have a bit more to it methinks.
A Merry Christmas to ye merry Gentlemen. I wish ye all the very best in all corners of the world. True to the tradition I will bring this one forth again;)

Sincerely yours. -Mike
Nice Christmas themed sub. Perfect for the generous angel, and Grinch in all of us. 5/5

Merry Christmas...for some reason the computer won't let me give this a Golden vote. :(
Out upon merry Christmas! What's Christmas time to you but a time for paying bills without money; a time for finding yourself a year older, but not an hour richer...? If I could work my will," said Scrooge indignantly, "every idiot who goes about with 'Merry Christmas' upon his lips should be boiled with his won pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. He should!"
Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
A Merry Christmas in 2010 to ye merry Gentlemen.
Merry Christmas and a Golden vote for you.
Why isn't this in the hall of hounor yet? It's too awesome not to be.
Merry X-Mas everebody.
PREEMPTIVE HOLIDAY SPIRT!!!
Of course, it isn't preemptive if you consider the time people start selling/advertising Christmas stuff.
Going by the time the stores around here have started playing christmas carols, you're late by about 2 weeks :p But Hurrah anyway!
This got a far higher score than it deserved :p oh well.
have a great Christmas, one and all!
Ho ho ho.
