Welcome to the first of our updates, friends and neighbors! Thanks for sticking with us until opening, and hopefully none of you will be disappointed! First thing first, we've completed our first "official" adds! Please welcome our new members, who I'm sure will be posting their OOC intros shortly! We're delighted to have all of you, and we can't wait to play with you.
Specifically, the Cirque Nocturne will be appearing at dawn on May 1st on the outskirts of the small town, which lies just outside of Baton Rouge. Considering the small size of the town, houses are never too far away, but the circus has a nice, large plot of land all to itself. The location is forested on one side; the Village will be set up just inside the trees, away from the prying eyes of the guests. The immediate area of the Village is lighted by lanterns hung from the trees.
St. Francisville is home to Myrtles Plantation, one of the most haunted locations in the U.S., and is geographically very close to the city of Baton Rouge, Louisiana's capitol. By nightfall, word of the Cirque will have spread, and the city will have turned out a large crowd. The South's memory is very long, and it hasn't been too many years since the circus visited the area. All the locals remember it either with great fondness or a great sense of apprehension, considering both the fantastic spectacle or the serious uptake in ghostly activity during and immediately following the circus' stay.
