Bandits are the ruffians of the world of Avendar. They specialize in the use of brute force in acquiring material goods. Unlike a thief, a bandit prides himself not on stealth, but rather the swift brutality of a highwayman. Scorning the elegant solution, the bandit uses whatever tools he has at hand to acquire what he wishes. Do to their somewhat brutish tempers, bandits tend not to be noted for obedience to any formal notion of law, and consequently often roam the roads of Avendar.

Bandits in general specialize in the mace and unarmed attacks. Their common skills— jab, pummel, and so on— can be used with either of these weapon choices. These skills, in particular, are intended to chain with one another to build up to using uppercut for the knockout. That includes the use of jab, pummel, headbutt, and so on. While each of these skills has beneficial effects alone, this is designed to encourage people to try out all of them when fighting until they find the combination that works best for them.

Brawling block is unique among defense skills, as it functions as shield block, but also has expanded capability. When wielding no weapon or being without a shield, the bandit receives the chance to block other unarmed attacks against him. This should allow him to use dual wield when fighting most mobiles without losing significant defense, as well as gain further benefit from disarming his foes. Counterwise, shield slam allows the bandit to deal some damage with a shield he is using. This grants him one additional extra attack per round with the shield in question.

Knockout with waylay or uppercut lead to obvious skill chains with steal, bind, gag, and ambush.
