12 Days of Christmas: Ho-Ho-Holy Smokes!

Christmas is coming! It’s almost here!
Christmas is coming, Santa! Get your rear into gear!

We’re back with our 12 Days of Christmas Collaboration, hosted by Kim over at Later Levels!

On the third day of Christmas Collab, Kim asked of me: You receive a call from Santa, as the elves desperately need a hand in the workshop getting all the toys ready. Which video game character would you recruit to help out?

This man. This man deserves a medal.

Give this man a few pieces of leather, some rocks, and a plant, and he can craft you an amazing longsword. Harritt from Dragon Age: Inquisition is the resident blacksmith of Haven and Skyhold, and it seems like there is no job too big or small for him, as long as you have a schematic. I originally wanted to bring in Wade from Dragon Age: Origins, but I think he’d be too busy with his “vision” to really get the toys made. But Harritt? You ask Harritt for some armor, and you get armor right then. It’s like magic, I swear.

As a bonus, I always think it’s cute when big strong men all of a sudden find their soft side, and so from a purely self-indulgent standpoint I like the idea of him sitting down at a workbench to make toys so little kids can be happy.

I can see the resemblance…

Anyway, I think with the speed that Harritt is able to craft complex armor and weaponry, he’d definitely be an asset when trying to produce the toys in an almost impossibly quick pace to have them ready for Santa’s big ride on the 24th. And the Inquisitor never had any of her equipment fail,  so his craftsmanship is great, too. All in all, I think if Santa’s elves needed backup, they wouldn’t go wrong with a call to Harritt.

Assuming the Inquisitor can part with him for a few days.

What do you think? Who would be the best asset for Santa and his elves as they try to reach their deadline? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I LOVE when big, “manly” men do sweet stuff like hold tiny kittens. You hit on one of my favorite tropes with that sentiment. I haven’t played Inquisition, but Haritt looks like he could handle any business thrown at him better than the person who’d done it before!

  2. Hopefully my Inquisitor will get to meet Harritt on Dec. 27th! 😀 I’m picturing Wade dreaming up with some grand toy design, instead of building toys, while Herren facepalms with Santa, haha.
