Entertainers make their livings by providing live shows in the cities, villages, and palaces of the Old World. They travel widely, either in small bands or alone, performing wherever they think there is a chance of earning some money or even as little as a free meal or a bed for the night. A very few become sufficiently famous to attract the patronage of the nobility, but the rest live more or less as vagabonds, performing when and where they can before being moved on by suspicious town watchmen.
