Circus Performers

While some are content to plow fields or shape metal, circus performers prefer a life on the move. Troupes are made up from 20 to 50 performers, and oftentimes include a small cast of exotic animals. They rove from town to town, city to city, keeping an exhausting schedule of constant performance. But you won’t hear complaining; in a performer’s eyes, this is the only life for them.

Working in a circus troupe provides the performers with a loving family, a range of skills and crafts to perfect, a place to live, and a source of income. They get to visit some of the largest cities on the continent, and have the privilege of seeing far off destinations that others could only hope to experience one day.

In order to make ends meet, some troupes will sell their unique skill sets to whoever will pay. Many performers take up learning secondary trades like leather-working, trapping, or even bounty hunting.
