I was not aware of this! I've not paid much attention to Dragon+, since there's no easy mechanism to download the articles to pdf and the one time I tried the copy/paste routine it was a formatting nightmare.

And I am now calling it Christmas season, and doing my annual resurrection of this thread. The links have been checked and are still good, and I've stickied this thread again, until after Christmas.

I guess we are still waiting?

to be nurtured like a precious flower, for it is the most precious
thing we have. Wherefore guard the word written and heed
words unwritten and set them down ere they fade . . . Learn
then, well, the arts of reading, writing, and listening true, and they
will lead you to the greatest art of all: understanding."

It is Thanksgiving in the US, which marks the traditional start of the Christmas season... Which means it's time for my annual thread necromancy, for those DMs inclined to run Christmas-themed sessions for their groups.

I have confirmed that the links for the 3.x and 5E content are all good.

Enjoy whatever seasons you celebrate this time of year!

Master Rupert,

Thanks for posting this. I forgot to mention: a belated Happy Thanksgiving to you. I hope you and yours had a fantastic holiday, and an equally amazing Christmas and New Years!

Best regards,

Christmas-themed campaigns in FR are fun! In 1997, one of our players made an adorable cartoon of festive Storm Silverhand wearing an elf helper outfit trying to fit crotchety Elminster into a Santa output. He is grimacing and wincing, all the while smoking his pipe.

I sorely regret not making a color photograph of that cartoon!

Decided to go a bit early, this year... Doing my annual thread necromancy and re-stickying this topic.

All the links in the first post (at least, the ones not lined through) are good; I just checked. We have "Nicholas the Gift Giver", his Palace, and his gnomes, in 3.x and 5E versions.

To those celebrating tomorrow: Happy Thanksgiving!
