The AntiClaus has risen! He has already done away with Halloween, and is now working to destroy Christmas! Your goal, dear mapper, is to not let that happen.
Since gaining access to Slipgate technology, AntiClaus has brokered a deal with Shub-Ngurath to deliver weapons of unfathomable power to all of the Black Goat's minions across any dimension he can get his corrupted sleigh to. So again, it falls upon the venerable Slipgate Warrior - you - to slay every last living thing in all worlds AntiClaus has access to. Otherwise, it's coal for all the good kids in every dimension!

This jam hopes to bridge the gap between this year's missing Halloween and Christmas jams, allowing mappers to pick and choose their favourite theme. You have a little over a month to create a map using the latest 1.8 version of the Arcane Dimensions mod. You are free to utilize new and existing assets, remix older projects or finish up unfinished maps.

@sock is there some flag or trick to make zombies lying on the floor unchoppable? I mean unchoppable with Shadow Axe. A wicked player can ruin the whole ambush by chopping my dear zombies while they're lying helpless on the floor

PS. I did read the documentation. Not lazy and did my homework. I know that
The primary benefit of the new axe is against zombies, one hit will often knock them down to the ground and another will deal with them on the ground.
This also applies to all bodies lying on the floor, so observant players can preempt traps by dealing with bodies on the floor first.
But maybe there's a workaround?
