Carnival Member

Many caravans travel carry goods and wares across vast sections of land. But some of these caravans carry no real wares, but instead offer entertainment and merriment wherever they go. These carnivals offer stage shows, music, performance gymnastics, and a well of carnival games.

Depending on the kind of carnival, the mentality of the members can be more or less sinister. Most carnies look out for one another and not many others, having little patience for outsiders. They adhere to carny law above the law of the land, considering themselves to be removed from the world that disowned them.
