Driven, like the wild animals, to the waste places of the Earth
"Driven, like the wild animals, to the waste places of the Earth" A quote, from somewhere, Google returns nothing. Wild humans were, and are, generally nomads. Cast out from some Babylon, they wander, and thrive, in the wilderness.
"The five families of the Tribe have always existed. They were there before the lords and the clans. They go back to a time when magic was greater than strength of arms, and the gods still walked the earth. When the clans sprang up, and men formed allegiances based on might, the Tribe did not join any of them. To preserve their gifts, they took to the roads and became travelers, actors and acrobats, peddlers and magicians.”
