|Navigation:||Main Page → Creatures → Factions → Raider gangs|
There exists a multitude of small gangs and groups of raiders across the Mazes. Although their sizes vary, all are very small and operate nearly exclusively in the Uncivilized Area.
Each gang is different and focuses on a wide variety of different activities, ranging from the benign (recreational use of drugs) to the dangerous (highway robbery, assault, rape, etc.)
Most require their members to "wear the colors" or "wear the uniform": wearing clothing featuring colors, symbols or insignia representing their particular gang. The vast majority of gangs impose initiation rituals on potential new members, typically a test of courage or strength in the form of a criminal act.
Although most gangs consider all others to be their enemies by principle, certain groups consider certain others to be particularly important rivals, spending most of their time fighting one another.
