    I wasnt sure where to put this, it is some RP material that I thought might be fun in the run up to Christmas. Clearly there is no Christmas in Markshire, but who knows what else might happen during the dark winter months. Hope it is of interest.

    J├│lasveinarnir, The Yuletide Lads

    J├│lasveinar first appear in 17th century Scandinavia as the sons of Gr├Żla and Leppal├║├░i, who had appeared in the 13th century, and had a reputation for stealing and eating naughty children.

    The J├│lasveinar live in the mountains, and start to arrive in town, one a day, thirteen days before Christmas Eve, the last one arriving that morning. These 13 brothers are strange creatures, part troll and part prankster in human form.

    Thirteen of the most commonly accepted names of the J├│lasveinar are:

    Stekkjastaur – Enclosure Post
    Giljagaur – Crevice Imp
    St├║fur – Itty Bitty
    ├×v├Ârusleikir – Pot Scraper Licker
    Pottasleikir – Pot Licker
    Askasleikir – Bowl Licker
    Hur├░askellir – Door Slammer
    Skyrg├ímur – Skyr Gobbler
    (Skyr, an Icelandic yoghurt)
    Bj├║gnakr├Žkir – Sausage Snatcher
    Gluggag├Žgir – Window Peeper
    G├ítta├żefur – Doorway Sniffer
    Ketkr├│kur – Meat Hooker
    Kertasn├şkir – Candle Beggar

    That’s very cool B, but I think the name on this guy is wrong.

    Pretty sure it’s something like Steely-jahr McBeam-jahr.

    Yeah, that’s it, that’s the ticket.
