The Grand Circus
Welcome one and all, to the greatest show in the universe, The Grand Circus!

An Original Character Tournament currently on Round 2, housed at deviantArt and hosted by TheDemonSurfer.

The Grand Circus is the greatest circus to ever have existed. Millions flock to its gates every week to experience entertainment at its finest. There are miles of games to play, hundreds of thousands of foods to try from all over the universe, and rides that you wouldn't even think could exist. In the center of it all stands the Big Top, where spectacular shows play out every night to a captivated audience.

However, attendance has been slipping over the years, and the Circus is struggling to stay afloat. In desperation, the Ringmaster has arranged for a tournament to be staged. 16 individuals from all across the universe will battle it out within the Circus.

The winner of the tournament will be given a device that allows them to change the reality of the entire Grand Circus. And while the Ringmaster would prefer for the city to remain as a Circus, it will up to the winner to decide what the city and its natives become.

Note: The links might be broken, don't stress about that, I'll come to fix them later. -Artic
