                                                                                                                                                                       At last, in beautifully turned out print we have the follow-up to last year's very successful TWAS Gamebook: The glorious  rules-lite multiplayer RPG version, lavishly illustrated in full-colour by me!! 

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

That is until Krampus the Christmas Devil turns up and abducts Santa Claus, even as he is delivering presents to the sleeping household. But as the old goat is trussing him up in a sack, Saint Nick draws upon the magic of Christmas to bring a group of Toys to life.

Charged with rescuing the jolly old elf, the party sets out to save Santa before Christmas Day dawns and the cruel, birch-wielding demon usurps his position – taking his place forever!

What follows is an epic quest, as the Toys battle their way through first the house, and then a wintry wilderness, before finally facing off against Krampus and his minions at the heart of Father Christmas’s weaponised polar workshop.

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

 In this game the players each play one of the toys magically animated to save Santa. All the illos from the original Gamebook are reused (but this time in full colour) and there are many new illos created especially for this game showing the toys themselves and the terrifying monsters they will encounter in their quest! Springing as it does from the oddly disquieting pen of author Jon Green, I had great fun illustrating this spooky, quirky adventure. Here's a few examples of what's in store!!
