It’s always a show when the circus comes to town. The colorful tents and banners, the smiling faces, and the expectation of crowds, spectacle… and blood! Bolsa’s Blood Circus is a gladiatorial troupe that brings with it a trail of mayhem and violence when its wagons set up near your campaign’s populated areas. Bringing the promise of entertainment, violent distraction, and gory display, Bolsa’s brawling champions will match steel against the best talents your party has to offer. But there’s always a catch.

A brief history of the Free City of Vadashar.
The Free City of Vadashar
The Free City of Vadashar includes a line of sourcebooks, adventure supplements, campaign guides, and extensive information about the unique setting of Vadashar, which was introduced in 1980 and combines a variety of fantasy elements: sword and sorcery evoking the worlds of Robert E. Howard’s Conan the Barbarian, Clark Ashton Smith’s Zothique cycle, the Sword and Soul fiction of Charles R. Saunders, the shared universe of Thieves’ World, the intrigue and derring do of Scott Lynch’s Gentleman Bastard sequence, the carefree swashbuckling of Fritz Leiber’s Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, and the modern film science fiction horror of the Alien and Prometheus franchise.
