    May your holidays be merry & bright, one and all.

    Been brainstorming for several years of what would need to be included in the design of a playable Xmas scenario/mod. The big stumbling block has always been figuring out a reasonable number of factions - using existing units. Santa, Krampus, maybe some rebellious elves, & that's about it. Although there is also potential for the Mouse King's army. Oh, and - given all the Christmas invasions - maybe possibly a Dr. Who themed faction (although why the Daleks would be helping him is a mystery).

    Every year I spend some time searching out old seasonal traditional. This year while trying to track down recipes and customs for Twelfth Night came across this illustration. It's part of a "fortune-telling" party game specifically designed for dinner parties on Epiphany.



    Be sure to read the description on the linked page for an explanation of why a 19th c. aeronef is delivering Twelfth Cakes. Slim as it is, there's now justification for a steampunk faction in a Xmas scenario.

    Ogedei - would you please post a translation of the text on your beautiful "card". That's got to be far too many characters for a simple "Season's Greetings" :D

    It's nothing special as much of my Mandarin skills have fallen into atrophy over the years - just "Happy Christmas" and "Happy New Year."
