Shrieking bandits are hostile to the player, should they get too close, as well as berserkers. They can be found in The Shrieking Forest and in the NW region of The Cannibal Plains. As their name implies, they are unintelligible, likely due to chronic malnutrition and reduced mental capacity. However, the player can vocalize with some leaders in a series of grunts and gestures, possibly avoiding conflict. They do not wear clothes and travel in packs from 3 to 15 bandits.
