    DAY 1

    ‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the village,
    No creature was stirring, to plunder and pillage;
    The Watford badge hung by the front door with care,
    In hopes that St. Elton John soon would be there;
    The townsfolk were nestled all snug in their beds,
    While visions of Troy Deeney danced in their heads;
    And Mazza in his 'kerchief decisions to make,
    Considered the benefits of a winter break,
    When suddenly noise on the village outskirts,
    Made the villagers rise in their replica shirts;
    Keen to feed on their meddling appetites,
    Into the square shone their annoying phone lights;
    The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
    Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
    When, what to their wondering eyes should appear,
    But a miniature sleigh, and two tiny Reindeer,
    2 tiny Reindeer...
    2... Rein...deer??
    More rapid than Werewolves, more sharper they rode,
    As they gnarled and snarled and pounded the road;
    "Now Seer! now Guardian! Elf village folk!
    Head for the high ground, the fiendish are woke;
    To the rookery, head, don't stumble or fall,
    Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!”
    Too late.. too late, the prophecy begun,
    The villagers cornered with nowhere to run,
    The warning foretelling that they would return,
    To plunder the village, to kill maim and burn;
    No escape for them now from the time of the horn;
    The terror will reign from the dusk to the dawn;
    A time of the darkness, their fates intertwined,
    The time of the Weredeer, the worst of their kind;
    Antlers like knifeblades, eyes fierce as hellfire,
    Hooves cracked like thunder and evil desire;
    Red bloodstained hides from their past raids' demise,
    The remnants of past villagers guts, lungs and eyes;
    A hunger for organs, A hunger for brains,
    A thirst for the blood, until no soul remains;
    Good vs evil, the day vs night,
    The eternal fight between darkness and light.
    Let the battle commence let the villagers fear,
    Let the last of the poor Elf folk shed their last tear.
    Let the history note that on this sacred land,
    The brave little dwarflings would make their last stand.......

    So the doors to the village awaken and part,
    The cast members set and the story can start.
    And villagers go 'bout their daily routines,
    Unsure what the unsettling quiet all means.
    Be wary, be sure, of who may be the "others",
    Your sisters or forum mates, friends or your brothers.
    Enjoy all the comfort and trust felt within,
    Before paranoia and lunacy win.
    A crack in the distance, the setting disturbed,
    The sound of the Weredeer too easily heard;
    A hauntingly eerily echoey cry,
    "You've all been quite good this year, now you will die!".

    My butcher's shop is open. Hopefully we can have some Venison in stock soon. Get your Christmas turkey orders in by the 15th please!

    Great opening Meh!

    So it seems our peace was short lived in the village. The only positive from this is that I'll be able to write about something more interesting than my last front page headline ("out of date pasty sold to young mum").
    I guess we now play the usual waiting game for the messages. In the meantime I'm suspicious of everyone, but especially you Diamond after last time ;)

    Sooty and Misty (named by the kids). Should I be worried that the butcher is taking such an interest in my dogs?!

    Another 2 weeks and the turkeys will be plump and ready.

    May need some help with the slaughter as I've named each one and now have a personal attachment to them.

    Since when has the pub not welcomed dogs? Not sure about this new landlord - after all, dogs tend to sniff out fellow canines....

    Early message please seer.

    Late messages don't help anyone. The longer we have to grapple with the messages, the better.

    Season's Greetings one and all, it's your professional Christmas cracker joke writer here. Here's your daily gag:

    What did the snowflake say to the fallen leaf?
    You are so last season.


    Quick question re gameplay - what time is the voting cut off? Will be at a pub quiz this evening and there are some proper nerds who get very uppity if people use mobiles so will have to vote before I go.

    I should have been more specific the snow has been cleared between my house to the pub, if your house is en route then that's good news for you.

    Since I took over. My pub, my rules.

    But there is a small garden out the back with heaters, beds, snacks and water bowls for the pets. Plus an obstacle course, lots of trees and pictures of cats, postmen and rabbits.

    Good to see you diamond.

    I'll be reading your messages more carefully this year! You often have some pretty good points to make at the start.

    Afternoon all, almost forgot we were starting today.

    My bet is that the evils are here, hiding in the shadows giving nothing away.

    The seer has either forgotten we are starting, or Meh! isn't around to post the message

    As we have seen in recent years hiding is a very good tactic for evil

    If the seer doesn't post today, can we please have some sort of seer renaissance?

    Lack of messages is giving evil an advantage.

    If we get no messages then I'm voting off a non contributor.

    Yep. Though, don't non-contributors get killed off unless they have a valid excuse?

    Anyways, day 1's are always like this until we get a couple of messages.

    Nothing.
