It’s that time of year again! The holiday season returns back to the Death By Mage blog for our 3rd annual Santa Claus D&D build. Around early November, I begin polling for our next version of Santa Claus using a class from the D&D 5th Edition ruleset.

Our first Santa Claus in 2015 (click here) was a warrior Bard inspired by Santa from the movie Rise of the Guardians.

Our second Santa Claus in 2016 returned as a powerful toymaking, toy soldier leading Wizard (click here).

So this year’s poll ended with a tight race which ultimately leads to our declared victor.

Since the D&D community wanted a Warlock Santa Claus I decided on some unique Warlock pacts and so I give you two versions of Santa Claus! One who made a pact with the Spirit of Christmas (the Giver) and other with Krampus (the Fallen). Some new Artifacts of Christmas this time around too.

I want to thank all the fans and people who continue to enjoy this little bit of holiday fun with me every year. Have a wonderful holiday season!

If you wish for PDFs of these Santa Clauses, they will be made available to my patrons on Patreon on December 1st, along with exclusive holiday Warlock Pacts to go with them.
