A Day Out at the Circus

A Raging Swan Press Eventure

Edrin the Entertainer and His Fabulous Fourteen arrives at night, unloading and setting up shop before any authorities can think to stop them. Come morning, dozens of tents both big and small stand ready to entice visitors with all manner of entertainments. The circus is raucous and wild, with performers including an enslaved orc and goblin duo forced to be slapstick clowns, a falsely accused fire-eater on the run from the law, three acrobatic womanising con-artists and a blind juggler with a taste for blood. Due to some of the performers’ unusual proclivities, the circus tends leaves in quite a hurry. Understandably, Edrin tries not to visit the same place twice. Not, at least, until the rumours die down.

This eventure is suitable for any level PCs and can be used with any size group. It has also been designed to be easily adapted to virtually any GM’s campaign.

A Day Out at the Circus is set in the City of Languard but is easily adaptable to almost any fantasy city.


What’s an Eventure?

An eventure is akin to a normal adventure, but does not (normally) feature violence or physical challenges. Instead, an eventure focuses on the use of social skills and role-play to resolve the challenges, or events, therein. Most eventures take places in a settlement or on the road. Few occur in traditional adventure locales such as dungeons, ruined castles and so on.

Eventures are an excellent change of pace and can be used as filler between adventures or as situations in which PCs who have invested in social skills can shine. They are also perfect for players who enjoy role-playing.
