View Full Version : Santa Claus

2009-12-25, 04:57 PM
I need to brew up some stats on Santa Claus. Anyone done this, and any advice? He's obviously not an elf, but he has the 'counts as an elf' special ability for activating items and stuff. What elks?

Isn't there some dire elk that we can use as reindeer?

I think Wizards did santa stats. He was a Druid

Obviously, he needs a magical sleigh that gives any reindeer pulling it a fly speed equal to their base land speed. It also has many magical compartments built into it that function as bags of holding, so that Santa can store huge amounts of presents in it. ^_^

A druid? Well that'd explain his affinity with animals. But wouldn't artificer make more sense. :smallbiggrin: *shrugs*

Not to toot my own horn but I did one yesterday here, and yes with dire elk.

Oh yeah and someone linked from there to the Druid WoTC Santa as well if you want to see it.

He was apparently given stats in either the first or second edition, because the conversion section of http://www.enworld.org/cc/ has him (he's a native outsider, according to these stats). His section also includes two artifacts (Santa's bag and Santa's sleigh), stats for Magic Reindeer, and racial traits for Santa's elves.

EDIT: These stats aren't official, and its for third edition.

There's a pdf file over at WotC with stats for Santa (Nicholas the Gift Giver):
http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/dnd/20011222x. You can download it there and at the bottom of the page are links for his Northern Palace and such. It's rather nifty.

Munchkin also did stats for him in one of the two Monster Manuals.

I'd consider him an epic fey or native outsider, if not a minor deity.

Also teleportation, scry combined some kind of psychic omniscience and quantum entanglement projection at will. That way he can be in multiple places at once, anywhere at any time, and see you when you're sleeping.
