How To Summon The Grimm Troupe

Grimm Troupe Corpse Location

In order to start the quest the Player 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 Player must return to the previous room, 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 the Player must return to Dirtmouth, where two tents will now have appeared, with the biggest one containing Grimm.

Grimm Troupe start

The Corpse of a large bug

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 will cause it to disappear.
