Street Magician

Street Magician

Street magicians perform minor feats of magic for the entertainment of others. Some travel with carnivals, delighting in new venues. Others work the same stage or street corner every day, performing to earn enough coin for their dinner and a bed. The only real similarity between individual street magicians is that they excel in combining real magic with the illusion of magic through misdirection.

A street magician may be any alignment. Good street magicians often travel with carnivals or a circus, perhaps paying special attention to entertaining children or the downtrodden. Neutral street magicians usually perform mostly for the money and to avoid the pedestrian work of a laborer or farm hand. Evil street magicians want to showcase their talents, more often than not, and prove themselves better than other magicians, if only in the public eye. Unscrupulous street magicians will often use their fascinate ability to grab a crowd’s attention while their allies rob move among the affected and rob them blind.
