Welcome to the outlands, settlers, the land of the godless.

Only demons reside here...

And they hunger for war.

Raise your blades.

–-Band of Bones assaulting an outpost

Band of Bones are the generic members of the Band of Bones faction. They can be found roaming the regions of Bonefields, High Bonefields, Shem, Shun, Spider Plains, The Hook, and The Swamp in groups of 4 to 8. If Tora the Fearless is not alive however, these groups are reduced to 2 to 4 members.

They live in the Exile Camp but if Big Gray and Big Grim are not alive while Tora is, they take over Grayflayer Village and may make that their new headquarters.

They will raid the player outpost if it is in range with a sizeable force.

They wear [Shoddy] armour (15% chance of [Standard]) and have weapons manufactured by Ancient.

The Statistics here are taken from FCS. Skills will be multiplied by the racial multiplier. Players should also be aware that non-player characters also level up while fighting.


If a Band of Bones warrior is found in a non-shek biome, they may challenge the player to a battle, which the player can decline. Accepting or insulting them will cause a normal fight.
