As dawn breaks over the red and white tent, the ringmaster prepares his opening speech.
"Allow me to welcome you all here tonight. All of us have been preparing for this, and you are the ones who help to make our dreams come true." The ringmaster, perfectly comfortable inside his role, takes off his hat and bows, nearly knocking his assistant down. "All of our ranks are comprised of the fringes, the rejects and the scum, the unneeded and unwanted" he intones. "We all have settled into our place on the fringes, building the uptopian dystopia you see before you. We, as the fringes, have not attempted to assimilate ourselves into your groups. We instead inhabit our own domain, making it so attractive so that others, you, are drawn to us. Indeed we may he the fringes, but we make ourselves the central area. So welcome to the fringes. Welcome to the sights and scenes. Welcome," he says, an evil smile dancing across his face, "to the Freaks."
