Where will the Christmas Eve Dragon Sighting take place?

What intrepid band of shadowrunners must deliver the Fruitcake of Alamais?

Who will be chatting mysterious chats in unknown nodes?

Will this year's Herrod find the right prostitute in London?

Why is Santa a jolly old elf? Why not a jolly old ork? Or troll?

Oh, and Merry Christmas, y'all.

Captain Chaos' Machine Ghost and FastJack, as well as the Chromed Accountant and all the other old hat boys.

Yes.

Because there's no such thing as an Immortal Ork or an Immortal Troll.

Yeah, but sometimes things get fragged and you need to lay low for two months.

They ate... The Fruitcake?

Not good. Very, very bad.

I hope their character fell on his own sword/ate his own gun before he could be tracked down.

Nah, it was 2062. I turned him into a drake. Surprised the Hell out of him. The other players were very jealous.

What does that mean? i remember this being in Planetary, where a civil servant tries to assassinate the new Baby Jesus and ends up being trapped by clone john Constantine in an invisible box until he dies of thirst. Did FanPro rip off that storyline?

Off topic I know, but would care to further enlighten us on this seemingly very poor storyline? I stopped reading Hellblaizer a long time ago, out of impending fear of such things. But the masocistic side of me wants to know more...

Warren Ellis used to write Hellblazer (he also did stints on Dr. Strange, Druid, Hellstorm, and a short series called Metalscream for Marvel 2099 with his old partner Disraeli). Anyway, Planetary is one of his babies, and as a send-up to the weird 80's UK-centric mostly Vertigo (or what would become Vertigo) comic characters, he did a short storyline featuring a fairly obvious rendition of Constantine (and other characters, like Etrigan, Swamp Thing, Animalman, the Metal Men, Death, Dream, etc.), who at the end morphed into a version of another Warren Ellis character, Spider Jerusalem.

Warren Ellis has also used some other psuedo-Constantines and Constantine references, something he really loved to pop into his Marvel occult-oriented title run (these are fairly recognizable as references rather than cannibalization; he does that too, but less often these days).

You mean White Sands?

It should all be in Aztlan, but SoNA mentioned some of it is in PCC in spite of the maps.

Damn. I was hoping that was the art from the Christmas card Wizard put in their issues like a decade ago--Christmas/Santa themes done by the big shots at Image. I still have the Jim Lee one somewhere of a hot-ass helper elf.

You know, speaking of elf porn and all.

Happy Holidays!

I was thinking who would be taking across the net in unknown nodes. My Dream Team for this...

1. Alice (the rouge ghost in the machine)
2. Eliohan (the dragon in the machine)
3. Leonardo (Net savy Elf)

or team Number 2

1. Damien Knight
2. Richard Villers
3. Loffwyr

or we can take it to team 3

1. Harelqueen
2. Frosty
3. Ethran the scribe

Those are my teams I dont know why the magic number was 3 on all of these but feel free to mix and match them for better or more dramatice conversations.

Did she survive the crash?

Personally I'd vote for team #3, being as that they are all at least not rumored to be dead.

I would have to agree with that. But it also depends on what kind of Elf Porn you like. I'll not mention what kind I prefer. ;)
