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.
