How To Summon The Grimm Troupe

Grimm Troupe Corpse Location.PNG

In order to start the quest, the Knight must first travel to the Howling Cliffs and go through two breakable walls (marked by circles). Then find "The corpse of a large bug" by travelling to the end of a short corridor and through another small hidden gap to the room where it lies (marked with an arrow). Then after dream-nailing the corpse, the previous room must be returned to, where the torch should now be lit. By striking the brazier at the foot of the torch multiple times a small cutscene will trigger showcasing Nightmare Lantern Interlude. Afterwards, returning to Dirtmouth will show two tents that have appeared, with the larger one containing Grimm.

Finishing the ritual and using the Dream Nail on this corpse will give the line: "Master... my role... apart from you... apart from kin. It pains me so." Banishing the Grimm Troupe will cause the corpse to disappear.
