Elf on a Shelf Mission Description

Elf on a Shelf is Radio Broadcast Mission, when traveling in Colorado, you will receive the information you need via Radio.

This is Secondary Mission with recommended Level 16.

The story of this mission takes place in: Santa Workshop Map.

Mission Steps:

We received a radio call from a distressed 'elf' requesting help from a tyrannical Santa Claus.

Locate the distressed Elf at Santa's Workshop.

Time to investigate Santa's operation and locate the distressed elf who called us. Let's find out if Santa should be on our naughty list.

We located Sugarplum Mary, the woman who called us. She suggested we trick Santa into the kitchen so she can talk to us. He loves cookies

Find evidence that Santa is producing Brain Candy at his Workshop.

Sugarplum Mary told us that Santa's Workshop is a front for a slave-labor drug factory. She suggested we locate his recipe for Brain Candy in the shack out back for leverage.

Confront Santa in his Workshop.

We found a pile of dead elves in a shed. Blast marks covered their bodies.

With the Brain Candy recipe in hand, it's time to have a heart to heart with Santa.

Sugarplum Mary has explained that the elves can't leave the area until the computer that controls their explosive bells is deactivated.

What to do with Santa in Santa's Workshop in Elf on a Shelf Mission:

  • Banish Santa 6 Santa will go away and never come back without a fight or Kill Santa
    • then you can Free Elves
    • force Elves to work for you
    • force Elves to work for you and increase production 6
  • make deal with Santa, increase production by 200% 6, and direct delivery to Ranger HQ. In this situation, you cannot save the Elves
  • make deal with Santa, 6, and direct delivery to Ranger HQ. In this situation, you cannot save the Elves
  • Other options lead to a fight.

I personally chose the option that will allow me to save the elves, i.e. fight Santa, I offered to arrest him.

It is worth mentioning, however, that according to what the players write, there is a bug in the game (PC Version) and after the fight, when you want to free the Elves, the game freezes. So before you make a decision, save the game in a separate slot.
