Volgi’s Christmas Tree

The Volgi has created the first Christmas Golem. He will be the first to tell you that the first golem was not the clay golem of Jewish folklore, but rather the wood golem, constructed of Lebanese Cedar wood by the mysterious Hasanak, Vizier of the Seljuq Empire (c. 11th century). Confucius chose to create his own wood golem this year, and clan Volgi assisted him with decorating. Dr. J. was informed that  Confucius worked his eldrich ways upon the golem such that it will awaken if one of the little Volgi shake their presents under the ‘tree.’

Ho ho ho, indeed!

About Dr. J.

Dr. J. was born the son of a New Atlantean sharecropper who cornered the market on notoriously delicious seaweed Himanthalia elongata (popularly known as Thongweed). With his newly minted seaweed fortune, Mr. J. the Elder sent his son to attend the Academy of Sorcery, Alchemy and Surgery where the good doctor apprenticed with the finest sorcerer surgeons in New Atlantis. Dr. J.'s areas of expertise grew to include bleeding, cutting for stone, trephination, medical divination with outstanding spatial and temporal resolution, cybernetic sorcery and medicinal alchemy. When King Orin of Atlantis fell ill with the Ick, Dr. J. stepped in with an elixir he devised from a combination of minerals, herbs and saps. Curing the king, Dr. J. gained significant notoriety which afforded him the luxury of time to devote himself to his side hobbies which include porpoise racing, the study of supply-side economics, cooking and raising his lovely merchildren alongside his lovely bride the archconservative Mrs. Dr. J.
