The Circus of Wonders and Shadows
It is 1930, post-show in the tents of the Circus of Wonders and Shadows. The public have all gone home, only those that make their living from the sawdust and the spangles remain. The Circus is set up outside yet another dirtball town somewhere in midwest America, but the Great Depression is beginning to tighten and the audiences are not what they once were. The circus folk are uneasy in the face of an uncertain future. The fairy tales told by those from the Old Country, tales of blood and sacrifice, are beginning to take root in people's minds. The wind that whips between the guy ropes is beginning to taste of dust and ashes. What can a few outcasts and outsiders desperate to keep the magic alive do in the face of an uncaring world?
The Circus of Wonders and Shadows is a game of dark fantasy and deception in a world that sits on that uneasy edge between magic and reality.

Hugs are awesome, feel free to ask for a hug at any time.
I'm pretty new to writing/GMing games but I've been playing Freeforms since 2008 or so.
For me, coming to Consequences is like coming home. It's where my family are. It's one of the most welcoming, friendly and loving environments ever and is full of wonderful people.
Alan & I bring and run the boardgames library at Consequences. We're happy to teach, play or lend boardgames at any time. We have a wide range from absolute beginner to genuine geek and all stops in between.
I also write, run and play freeforms.
Richard has been playing freeforms for a very long time. He started as a half- elf and developed into playing bad guys, after being misled by good friend.Now he plays space pilots and white hats, while mixing in a little romance here and there.
He was part of the writing & GM team for Siege of Troy and 2018 saw the debut of Shogun.
If you want to know about Roman gladiators please feel free to ask.
