Lazy Saturday Photo


I've always wanted to run some type of game where the players were members of a traveling carnival.  Strange locations and people.  Strange traditions and folk laws.  I look at this picture and nod a little, thinking this would be my opening scene for the game.

  2. That idea has so much potential for a wealth of scenarios and sub plots. What are you waiting for? Do it!

  4. Erin Morgenstern's "The Night Circus" was one of my favorite reads this past year. You might find it an interesting read if you are serious about a carnival campaign.
