The circus stays nowhere long, but you're fairly certain you bring joy and delight wherever you go, pushing back the darkness just a little bit. When you arrive at the latest location it seems much like any other- a dusty field, adults and children who are just a little too thin, and crops struggling on their best days. There's an unmistakable darkness gathering around the big top though - can you push back something this despairing? And do you want to?
Beneath the midway lights of the Crossroads Carnival, you and your fellow performers are drawn into an aged battle between light and dark. You wander from one desperate town to the next, struggling to keep your humanity and save the souls of the rubes. But the cost is high, and personal deals with the darkness itself may be the only way to save others.
