    How all ye landlubbers doin this fine evening?! Santa Baar is ready to head back into Skull Island to continue celebrating yuletide! Before he leaves he has looked over all of your entries for the Holiday Companion contest and has picked the winners! We want to thank everyone for entering and wish we could give everyone a prize. Without further ado......
1st Place:
Crazy Ryan Upham
Companion Name: Big Red Nosed Moodolph
Info: The Big Red-Nosed Moodolph companion is a Musketeer. He uses his canon to shoot ornaments at the enemies. His ornament supplies are on his pants for quick access (It never runs out lol). Something special about him is that each color ornaments does different things too not just damage the enemies.
Red Ornament- Decreases enemies attack
Green Ornament- Steals enemies health
Blue Ornament- Decreases enemies defense
Yellow Ornament- Increase teammates' defense, attack, etc.  within range
One of his special talent is the "Skate Kick". Which can only be used at enemies within range. Does high damage. (Secretly a swashbuckler too)
Second Place:
Calamity Pixieshade
Companion Name: Sugar Yum Fairy
Info: The Sugar Yum Fairy is a Privateer Class companion and has a permanent ongoing ability "Yum, Yum, Yum"- (not one you have to select) - any allies ending their turn in the adjacent 8 squares next to the Sugar Yum Fairy will recover 10% of their health at the end of round.  (Unless defeated - sorry she can't bring people back from the dead.)
In addition to Mighty Charge  the Sugar Yum fairy has one additional epic ability called - Mischievous Pixie - The sugar yum fairy can target one opponent and move them to any square of her choosing.  (Bosses like Moo could be immune, but eh, I like this plan)
Third Place:
Loveable Flora
Companion Name: Morgan Snowfitte
Class: Swashbuckler
Some cool talents:
Frenzied Flurry
Bonus attack if you hit (60% chance), up to 5X per round
Infallible Master
+30 accuracy
+15 armor when attacked (50% chance), up to 3X for whole duel
Fourth Place:
Clever Jasmine
Companion Name: Snowball
Class: Privateer
Looks like the snowball pet from wizard101 but is bigger and is on your crew! Some of his special moves is to "snowball strike" into the enemies and it even has snow fall around it like the pet version. Another exclusive move this companion would have is "build a snowman" which summons 3 snowman minions in 3 spots on the board to help you fight.
Thank you everyone who entered! Big thanks to Kingsisle for letting us hold a contest this holiday season! Hope you all get what you want for Christmas. Stay safe and see you in the Spiral!
