The Motley Folk, also known as "the strolling players", is a loyal group of strolling entertainers who live and perform together to the public.

OverviewModify the text

The Motley Folk travels between Lombrica and Argenta, the two principalities of the Inkworld, led by their own Black Prince. The Motley Folk consists of conjurors, tightrope-walkers, fire-eaters, and knife-throwers.
