Cirque Mortum is a Dangan Ronpa based role playing group held on tumblr. It takes place in a carnival where eighteen students of Hopes' Peak are dropped off on a field trip. The doors swing shut behind the students as the last one files in, locking them forever. The only ways out of the carnival is to kill another student, and get away with it, not once, but twice! Will these talented students escape from the twisted circus together, or will they slowly succumb to despair?
There's all the time in the world for these students, so sit back with some peanuts and cracker jacks, and enjoy the carnival while it lasts.
