Yes, and possibly, depending on the troupe and how you see your character “fitting in”.
First, you need to agree on the nature of your troupe: the reason your Adventurers find yourselves in the company of one another, likely the motivation for the activities you will pursue together, and perhaps influencing how you interact with the campaign world.
The suggestions you’ve made so far are (in physical order of posting):
o A Silk Road campaign, in a caravan, trading our own accounts
o Like the Black Company, our own mercenary band at the platoon level
o A ruffians troupe
o The denizens of a small keep (on the borderlands?)
o A circus troupe that puts on performances as a cover for larceny/espionage.
o Decadent sons and daughters of aristocrats looking for adventures to relieve their boredom.
o Heretics of the state religion one step ahead of the religious authorities.
o Guardians of a sacred artifact trying to protect it from the many groups that want it.
o A frontier style game, either a “New World” (lost world?) sort of thing, or a more Western-style, new frontier or gold rush sort of situation.
You can continue to make suggestions to one another, or highlight the opportunities you see for a particular troupe concept.
Then, perhaps you can each list your first three preferences, so we can look for intersections of interests and make a selection.
