Renowned throughout the ancient world, οἱ Σάτυροι σκηνικοί — the Satyrical dramatists — once travelled from land to land, purveying both the raucous and bawdy entertainment beloved by the crowded masses and the many subtly refined theatrical genres of the wealthy classes. References to sublime and even supernaturally inspiring performances by these creatures can be found in numerous surviving manuscripts.
These days, the Satyrs still venture forth from the wooded highlands and mountain valley pastures of the Lands of Arkas, but in much-reduced numbers. The world is no longer as interested in their abilities, nor are they celebrated in many nobles’ courts. Indeed, the world has turned them hard, and they have learned to take what they need from humans when they have no way to earn it. Not merely theatrical performers, Satyrs have found their talents make them excellent thieves.
