The preceding video includes a group of players fighting Krampus and his "Naughty Brat" minions in his base of operations.

Krampus is one of several seasonal boss monsters that players can encounter in Shroud of the Avatar. Each seasonal boss monster is available for two months and then goes dormant, although their bases of operations remain populated by their respective minions all year long. In some cases, players can stumble into a random encounter near a seasonal monster's base which will include that boss and their minions.

The Krampus and his minions are typically fought in their home of Krampusgarten, and small village in the East Sanctus Forest that Keith created specifically for this purpose. It includes abandoned viking-themed buildings, harvestable coal resources (a signature gift from the Krampus), and, of course, waves of enemies. The Krampus draws power from his Naughty Brats, so clever players will eliminate these minions to help them defeat this boss monster. Optionally, players may also run into these foes in a Snowy Mountains random encounter variant, which was also created by Keith.

Keith created the conversations for all related creatures as well as the quest that directs players to confront the Krampus. The quest is optional; at any time, players can fight these enemies in their base or associated ranom encounter. Players who defeat Krampus while following the quest will get a special reward.
