The bandits who roam the Pomarj came here to find a new way of life. Since the orcs were pushed away, this served
as a place to lose your past and earn some illegal coin. The first bandit camps were set up near the eastern border with Ulek, and the bandits there raided unwary traders moving about the roads.
With the colonization of the Pomarj, the bandits were pushed eastward, but now they have a whole new set of targets to ply their trade against. Several colonization attempts from various kingdoms have failed due to the bandits ransacking their outposts.
The Staglord seems to be the de facto leader of the bandits in the Pomarj, though there are some splinter groups who operate independently.
