Doctor Victor von Doom, the on-and-off dictator of Latveria, hates Christmas. It gives people hope, encourages them to celebrate things that aren’t Doom himself, and takes attention away from the Latverian national holiday Doom-mas.
But one thing that intrigues Doom about the holiday is its mysterious symbol: Santa Claus. The man in the red and white suit, despite his bulging gut and annoying laugh, has somehow managed to unlock a secret of temporal control, allowing him to travel the entire world in a single night. And that’s not all! To Doom’s great mirth, Santa also seems to have an entire race of enslaved servitor elves to do his bidding! Just think of the Doom-bots that could be produced if Latveria controlled the North Pole factories!
This short one-act Event for the Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Game is designed to provide a short holiday break for you and your players and should be enough material to fill one gaming session. It is very loosely based on Scott Lobdell and John Byrne’s 1991 short comic entitled “I’ll Be Doom For Christmas,” and the art included is from that book.
If you and your MHRP players are ready to save Christmas, download the Event below! As always, please let us know how it goes! Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
