Age of Worms
The bane of travelers these folk are generally ragged, dirty, and of low moral character. Bandits are outlaws and get what they want or need by waylaying travelers they perceive as being rich or weak. Unfortunately, since the destruction wrought by the Greyhawk wars, banditry has become far too common on the roads of the Flanaess. Fortunately most bandits are craven at heart and when intimidation and threats are met with stern martial responses, these cowards attempt to flee if they suffer losses.
