Cirque Du Gothique

Welcome to my circus... don't mind the bodies, I swear I found them that way. Let me introduce myself: I am Ringmaster, the captain of this mad troupe. Won't you join our traveling chaos?

Step Right Up

There are eight mentors who will help you find a job suited to your talents. Which mentor you get is in the shaky hands of fate, and some are very selective. If you answer their questions wrong, you'll still collect a reward-- you just won't be that star of the show.

Everyone's A Winner

I never send a performer away empty-handed. Even if your act falls flat, I'll make it worth your time with a Cash Shop favorite, valuable rarity or exclusive item from my personal collection.

How it's played

When a player purchases a Cirque du Gothique, they meet with the Ringmaster, and by pressing "Enter", he would direct the player to a trainer. They will then be asked questions by the trainer and have to answer questions correctly, the wrong response would cause them to fail and receive a item from that trainer that was considered a failure.

As a soldier in the war on tax fraud, I've got my share of enemies. Underground ferret breeders, knock-off lava lamp dealers and fake charities all know my name. But what really gets to me are traveling circuses-- no respect for tax law and never in one place for long. Grrr!

The worst of the bunch is the Cirque du Gothique. Run by the lunatic Ringmaster, this crowd of misfits and troublemakers rambles from town to town, spreading mischief and never paying their taxes. Together with his eight captains, the Ringmaster is always looking for new recruits to perform in his mad show.

If you join the Cirque du Gothique you'll be randomly assigned one of those eight degenerates as your mentor. Through a series of questions they'll find the right job for your skills--though I would hardly call them "jobs"--from balancing on the high wire to running the concession stand. The Ringmaster's pay system is as chaotic as his show, so no matter your assignment you'll be sure to walk away with a Cash Shop favorite, valuable rarity or something from his creepy collection. Of course, you'll have to live with the shame of cheating the GRS of its share of your paycheck, but that's up to you.

ou can roll the bones with the Cirque du Gothique at the Cash Shop, or pick up a bundle to save some Cash.

The Cirque do Gothique is about to leave town, so if you haven't gotten a chance to work for the Ringmaster and earn his strange rewards, this is your last chance! Good riddance, I say-- these carny types do nothing but disrupt the social fabric of a solid tax-collecting system.

Whatever position the Ringmaster assigns you in his mad show, you'll be sure to get some kind of prize-- even carnivals have to abide fair labor laws. Work for the Cirque du Gothique and you'll walk away with a Cash Shop favorite, valuable rarity or one of these exclusive items:


Ready to spin the wheel of fortune at the Cirque du Gothique? Head on over to the Cash Shop for your shot at fame and fortune in the big top, or save some Cash with a bundle. But hurry: Cirque du Gothique is leaving the Cash Shop on Friday, October 8!
