Bands (social group)

Bands are groups of nomadic humanoid wanderers who tend to exist by scavenging, theft, trade or killing, often acting as outlaws and raiders. They typically number 5-30 members, about three quarters of whom are males. Females will fight as formidably as males. There are rarely any children in bands - at most, there will be one child, always belonging to the band leader and his female. Female band leaders who might give birth to a child will not keep it.

Bands are encountered along rivers and trails, preferring established routes. Very rarely, bands are still considered members of a tribe in the region of their birth. More often they are outcasts. They are sometimes employed as adventurers or skirmishers. Very few will be seeking a place to settle.

Bands will often use animals for travel, particularly in desert regions. They will have a single dog with them only 1 chance in 6. They prefer short bows and spears in combat.
