Troupers is the story of a group of traveling entertainers who are more than they appear. They work as couriers for a secret group that’s trying to return the rightful King to power. They also handle other tasks on the side, mainly to keep the coffers full. But sometimes just to help out someone who’s in a jam.
Troupers is a fantasy story in the tradition of Tolkien’s The Hobbit — but with more than a little humor. So it’s not really like The Hobbit — except for the elves.
