Seas of Felis
The Bands Sands is a land and not necessarily an actual faction. These lands are not controlled by any centralized government; however there are villages and areas that have their own individual government (many cases being that the most powerful inhabitant is a self-proclaimed ruler). The land is mostly desert, formed from the tops of plateaus and the like after the flood. Being hard to inhabit for extended periods of time without certain magic and/or supply routes, it has become essentially a land comprised of lawlessness. A mix of people that do not fall under a particular government; generally guns for hire, mercenaries, and criminals. The Coalition has worked with various people from the Bandit Sands; they have some allies in this region as well as some go-to-guys that can help out for the right price. Those that go here must be careful. While you may be going to see someone that is friendly to you, getting there could be a whole different issue as not everyone is indifferent to outsiders.
