The Traveling Troupe
Whenever the Carriage of Marvelous Wonders rolls into the town square, folks know they are in for a day or two of fantastic entertainment. Twice a year, the painted wagon's appearance heralds the arrival of the Traveling Troupe - a group of talented performers that travel the Feywood bringing news of the outside world, hints of exotic, far-off people and places, and - most of all - a two-day break from the monotony of daily life.
There is no formal structure to this troupe of performers. Whenever a major decision is required, the entire troupe discusses and votes on a course of action. Most of the time, though, the troupe looks toward its founder, Andreas Highcastle, and often Elannia Altuliel as well, for wisdom and guidance.
Every member of the troupe is first and foremost an entertainer. Their main goal in life is to perform for crowds and have those crowds enjoy their efforts.
If the Traveling Troupe has any agenda at all, it is to bring entertainment... relief from boredom... the proverbial ray of sunshine... into the lives of those who dwell in the villages and towns along their route.
