Roll up, roll up!
Welcome to the carnival!
Enjoy the sweet smells of the cotton candy and candy apples. Listen to the calliope music as you wander among the many stalls, to the screams of children enjoying the various rides. It’s all been designed to take your money, but you already know that. What you are not aware of, however, are the strange goings-on of the carnival world after dark. Do the carnies want more than your money? Does the fortune teller know more than she tells you? Are some of the games more dangerous than others?
Explore your worst fears, and perhaps gain some new ones, in these twisted tales of what really goes on at the carnival after dark!
