Travelers who wander from one place to the next. They are usually very experienced, and have seen places not many people dare to visit. They have various skills – some of them wield weapons, others gather and sell knowledge, some know the wilderness as the back of their hand; caravans hire them from time to time for no road is unknown to them.
The vagabonds who call themselves the Nomads usually travel in small groups, or even alone. They are rarely ever seen, and even more rarely heard; but they always bring news from faraway places, and they seem to travel before any other messenger. Every once in a while they all gather in some place for a short time; nobody is sure why, or how they find each other…
Truth behind the myth
Within the present world, vagabonds are considered true wanderers as the word vagabond is actually derived from the Latin word vagabundus, “inclined to wander.” There are various titles for this type of person such as drifter, squatter and tramp among others. The defining purpose of a vagabond is someone who wanders from place to place without ever having a true home. For many this term carries heavy negative implications, but those who live the vagabond lifestyle are perhaps attracted to it for the pure freedom of it… freedom from normal responsibilities the world suggests we maintain.
