Christmas Morning.

The Paizo Offices are mostly empty and dark, save for those cubicles devoted to Organized Play. Those have been strewn with tinsel, and Compton’s gnomes have been hard at work helping sanction splatbooks and modules for Organized Play.

(And before you ask, OF COURSE they are gnomes not elves. What elf in his right mind would wear jingle hats and pointed curly shoes? What elf would spend all her time making treats for the good little Pathfinders around the world? What elf would think that shoveling out reindeer stables (for of course the Organized Play team keeps a herd of flying reindeer and a sleigh on hand at all times to get Tonya to all her conventions) and spending long hours working overnight in a workshop would be fun? For that matter... What elf would be this SHORT?)

In amongst the group of regular blue-shirted Paizo gnomes is a temporary worker hired just for the holiday season. Her name is Calpurnia Underhall Poshkettle, but all her friends call her Cup. Cup lays down presents for all the Organized Play staff. A gift certificate with a massage for Tonya. A little miniature leshy doll, complete with an acorn cap, for her fellow gnome, Linda. A Lego rocket ship for Thursty. And for the Compton, the bard himself, a song. She turns on the office web cams, and hits ‘record’ as she starts to sing.

I Gotta Feelin' (with apologies to the Black Eyed Peas)

[4x]
♫ I gotta feeling that tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good, good night

Tonight's the night
Let's live it up
I got my splatbooks
Let's game it up

Take out your flip mats
Let’s roll the dice
PFS’s where it’s at
Don’t tell me twice

I know that we'll have a ball
If we role play
Give it our all
And save the day ♫

Cup picks up Thursty’s picture, and starts making laser sounds in time to the music that sound remarkably like ‘pew-pew!’

♫ Let’s SFS out
I wanna let it go
Lets go way out spaced out
And losing all control

Go get our jet boots
Barathu boons
Our estex suits
Take off beyond the moons

Let's seek the station
Adventure found
Use our imagination
Yeah, we get around ♫

She gestures to all the other gnomes in their little blue shirts and they join in!

♫ Let's do it, let's do it,
Let's do it,
Let's do it, and do it, and do it,
Let's live it up
And do it, and do it, and do it, do it, do it,
Let's do it,
Let's do it,
Let's do it

'Cause...

[2x]
I gotta feeling (ooooo hoooo) that tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good, good night

Tonight's the night (hey!)
Let's live it up (let’s live it up)
I got my splatbooks (they’re so great)
Let's game it up (don’t hesitate)

Take out your flip mats (flip mats)
Let’s roll the dice (let’s roll the dice)
PFS’s where it’s at (c’mon)
Don’t tell me twice

Go get our jet boots (they’re kickin’)
Barathu boons (watch them combine)
Our estex suits (nice threads of mine)
Take off beyond the moons

Let's seek the station (seek the station)
Adventure found (adventure found)
Use our imagination
Yeah, we get around

Let's do it, let's do it,
Let's do it,
Let's do it, and do it, and do it,
Let's live it up
And do it, and do it, and do it, do it, do it,
Let's do it,
Let's do it,
Let's do it, do it, do it, do it

Here we come
Here we go
We gotta game (game, game, game, game)

Easy come
Easy go
Flyin’ to the top (top, top, top, top)

Get my stars
And novas too
Not gonna stop (stop, stop, stop, stop)

New factions
New XP too
Prestige and fame (fame, fame, fame, fame)

Monday, Tuesday,
Wednesday, and Thursday
Friday, Saturday
Saturday to Sunday

Get get get get get with us
You know what we say
Game it every day
Ga Ga Ga Game every day

And I'm feeling (ooooo hoooo)
That tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good good night

I gotta feeling (oooooo hoooo) that tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good good night

Ooooooo hooooo ♫

I’m glad you all enoyed my little holiday card to Organized Play. For those of you who celebrate it, happy Boxing Day. To the rest of you who are working today, welcome back!

Hugs,

I feel like there should be a special boon released today for brawlers.

I feel like there should be a special boon released today for catfolk, for who loves boxes more? We see one, and leap right in. It’s a genetic imperative.
