Summary: The RPG Circus is normally a three ring act. Each act being run by one of our moderators. The RPG Circus covers the wide range of Role-playing Game topics. Topics can include but are not limited to game reviews, product reviews, player advice, GM advice, observations, game theory, current RPG debates, and just about anything we can think about that can be considered Role-playing Game related. We hope that you join us and will listen to us.
