SYNOPSIS:

Children have gone missing from a quiet Elven village!
You have been chosen to seek out the culprit.
Can you save the children and bring the fiend to justice?

In this adventure your players are asked to help an ancient elven community hidden in the mountains above a nation of humans. The adventure begins when the players stumble upon a magical portal to the elven village late one evening. Although the elven Yuletide festivities are at hand, sadness grips their kingdom. Someone broke through their formidable mystic defenses, entered the valley and absconded with several elven children.

The culprit is described as looking like a large satyr, with the upper body of a human and the lower body of a faun. Its rough skin and coarse fur are a purplish black. The large ram’s horns on its head and its hooves are a deep black. It wears a chain with bells around its waist and a woven basket on its back. It is a demonic being known as KRAMPUS, and each Yuletide it comes to the Prime Material Plane in search of naughty children to punish! As if that were not bad enough, KRAMPUS is served by vile-hearted dark elves!

The thieving beast also stole the elves’ sacred gem; its name translates roughly to Alfspark in the local human’s tongue. This is a large seed, the size of a man’s head, which is infused with the mystical power of the elven gods, which the elven seers use to keep their valley hidden and in an eternal spring-like state. Without it the portal to their valley is stuck open, the elves are unprotected, and unless it is recovered their valley will return, dramatically, to freezing conditions. It will mean the destruction of their community.

Your players are asked to find and return the captive children, defeat the evil fiends who took them, and find the Alfspark; all before the sun rises and the hidden elven village is exposed to the outside world!
