Bandit Stat Block

While Bandits are listed in several of the random encounter tables. There is no entry in the Monster Listings for the bandit.

Is this published somewhere other than the core rulebook?

It’s a legacy from BX. Bandit encounters should be treated as NPC Party encounters where all of the NPCs are thieves. This is explained nowhere whatsoever in the rules. The responsible parties have been hurled from the Palatine Hill.

Thanks for clearing that up for me.

Archon’s reply is obviously the official answer for ACKS. An alternative option is to go with AD&D, where Bandits and Brigands are nearly identical, with the main difference simply being that Bandits are Neutral and Brigands are Chaotic (Evil).
