Santa's Happy Workshop


Welcome to the GM's Day sale! From now through March 10th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our GM's Day sale page.

‘Santa’s Happy Workshop’ is a roleplaying game about a team of Christmas elves who work in Santa’s workshop. Santa is a tyrant, lording over an ultra-capitalistic dystopian-nightmare factory at the head of a multinational corporation, presented to the rest of the world as a happy place of fun and magic.

The player-characters are recruited into a specialist team, Santa's Little Helpers, to help Santa hunt down and destroy threats to his rule: communists, magical elves and traitors. The players are all of these things.

Unlike most other roleplaying games, this one is not about players working as a team to overcome adversity. It is about players screwing over other players, either to please Santa, or simply to stay alive.

The game is intended as a light-hearted and fun adventure for playing single-sessions, with three or more players, plus one player acting as the Game Master (GM).

Included are the rules in PDF form, which are suitable for printing, a printable character sheet, and an editable PDF character sheet for online play.

So, basically a holiday-themed homage to Paranoia.

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.
