The Nutcracker and the Mouse King is a new adventure for ’TWAS – The Roleplaying Game Before Christmas.

One Christmas Eve, at the stroke of twelve, the Mouse King and his rodent army emerge from behind the skirting board to threaten the very life of the child who lies asleep in bed, waiting for Christmas morning. But the child has a defender – a Nutcracker, and his band of brave followers.

An epic battle ensues, until an invidious curse strikes the child down. Can the Nutcracker and his friends find a way to reverse the evil spell and defeat the marauding mice, or will the Mouse King triumph, damning them all?

*             *             *

Inspired by E. T. A. Hoff man’s timeless classic, which was also the inspiration for Tchaikovsky’s seasonal ballet, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King comes complete with three new Scenes that you can use in your games of 'TWAS, along with a new Player Character, and a new villain.

A copy of ’TWAS – The Roleplaying Game Before Christmas is required to use the contents of this supplement.

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...

’TWAS – The Roleplaying Game Before Christmas is a rules-lite RPG for 2-7 Players, inspired by the legends and literature of Christmas.

It is ideal for a festive gaming session with an established group, or as an alternative to the games usually played on Christmas Day.

Do you have what it takes to save Santa and avert a Christmas catastrophe?

Format

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
