Looking down at the worn and tattered handbill your heart beats with flurried excitement. The carnival is in town and it opens tonight....
Ladies and Gentlemen, step right up, get your tickets here. A slight man with sunken cheeks and greased back hair greets you as you slowly step up to the window. His boney hand reaches out to snatch up the crinkled mass of dollar bills you have to offer and he motions with a quick jerk of his head for you to enter. Crossing over the threshold you begin to notice that this carnival is not quite what you had expected. No bright lights, cotton candy hawkers or boisterous crowds are there to greet you. No shrill cries of excitement and delight to startle you. You hear only the tinkering whistle of the Calliope playing somewhere in the background as it sends its soft eerie song into the tar black night sky. But still you are intrigued, so you continue on.
As you walk down the midway you feel the warm summer breeze as it blows the heady scent of smoke and deep musk into your nose, permeating your senses. Look now to the edges of the light. Past the dilapidated tents, toothless carnies and broken down Ferris wheel. Into the shadows, the back alleys, the darkness.
You are drawn to the macabre not the merry. You are in the right place. Come, I'll show you something I know you will enjoy. A show like nothing you have seen before. Pull back the curtain. Go ahead, take a look.
For this swap you will create/purchase/pull out of your hat or manifest out of thin air the following:
That is it. Have fun. Go on a crafting spree. Ask questions. Slowly slip into madness.
