Society has always had a place for its unwanted, its mistakes, its outsiders. Whether asylum, pyre or merely banishment, for the good of the many, some have been set apart by fate or by design. There are skeletons in the closet of society stretching back millennia. But people are also fascinated by these freaks. Morbid curiosity drives people to stare and their appetite for the bizarre, the macabre, and the titillating has created outlets for this craving; from the Bacchinals of Ancient Greece, to the Circus Maximus of Rome, traveling Gypsy troupes, Commedia dell'arte, and now, in this age of super powered beings, comes the Circus of Light.
If you are one of these outcasts, the Ring Master may have a home for you. For those that he chooses there will be warm food and shelter. From the night and from those that do not tolerate the strange in their midst. Know ahead of time, however, that the members of the Circus are expected to perform and to fight, for the Ring Master is fighting a war.
((The Circus of Light is currently made up of alts of members of the Midnight Avengers. We currently only meet on Fridays at 8 pm pacific time on the Virtue server. The idea is to try to get as many people as possible to be on at the same time even though we are a small group, and for all of the characters to level up at the same pace. As of 10/14/06 the highest level characters are level 25. If we can interest some more people we would consider changing or even adding meeting days in order to accommodate differing schedules. I would say that we are moderate to heavy role-play. We try to act in character and indicate which comments and jokes are just the player talking. As you can tell from the description above, this circus is not all clowns, slapstick and silliness, but there is definitely room for that. The idea is to have fun after all.
