The Fraternity of Vagabonds
The 16th century was a dangerous place, kids. Con artists, knaves and robbers roamed the land, causing mischief. If the pamphlets Alasdair has uncovered are to be believed, there was a vast underground crime network with its own secret language. It was a lot a lot like the John Wick franchise. And, like the John Wick franchise, it’s a load of old nonsense.
Still, bit of fun, innit?
The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
