 ‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all thru the mart, not a customer was stirring, despite discount Paul Blart.

*Note*

This scenario’s creation was based on a creepy pasta story  “My Uncle’s Bizarre Encounter in a US Intelligence Agency”.  At Gen Con I mentioned to Review Cultist of the Al Denta Rigamortis podcast that this pasta would make an excellent DG scenario.  This lead to us deciding to do a RPX / ADR crossover episode.  Be sure to swing by Al Dente Rigamortis to check out ADR Episode 233 ” My Uncle’s Bizarre Encounter in a US Intelligence Agency” in which Review Cultist and I discuss the twice mentioned creepy pasta story.  A great time was had by all.
