This Comic's Cast:

Presumably the elves work for gingerbread and candy canes. Maybe also toy soldiers.

Probably free housing as well, although it's possible Santa makes them work for incredibly low wages just to pay the minimum amount of debt for the housing a food, but never enough to cover the interest and additional "fees".

Santa's kind of a dick.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
