I've recently re-visited Circus, an old part of my frpg Fabula. It is all about being a budding circus-performer in a fantasy world, doing circus tricks of magical nature, touring the country-side and trying your best to better your special-act for the all important test to be admitted to the Circus-university in the capital. The land is ruled by circus-performers, so there is a great future waiting for the one who succeed. Playing Circus Fabula is fun and challenging, and there is not a dull moment to it.
And it is a totally different way of doing a fantasy-world.
Do you know of other ways of doing fantasy? Something magic outside of being a powerful spell-caster? Care to share with us?
