Ravenloft II: The House on Gryphon Hill
A traveling show and carnival, the Pinwheel Circus wanders from place to place entertaining and delighting the masses. The circus employs magical performers, jugglers, acrobats, beast-tamers, jesters and freaks in its show, with Alistor Pinwheel – the show’s founder and namesake – as the charismatic ringmaster.
The carnival recently pitched camp just outside Mordentshire. While they are still setting up and have yet to put on any shows, it is already drawing a great deal of attention from the locals. With the attitude in town being so bleak, many find the circus a welcome sight and are eager to go to a show, while other are leery of such an out-of-place festive display in their midst.
Meanwhile, fliers have begun to appear on walls and lampposts all around Mordentshire, urging the townsfolk to “abandon their cares and go for a spin at the Pinwheel Circus! It’s an experience that you and your loved ones will never forget!”
