When you're out in the middle of nowhere, it's just you, all by your lonesome right? Unfortunately wrong. In fiction, you can't go practically anywhere without running into trouble. So what sort of villain are you likely to run into in the vast, technically unsettled stretches of land beyond civilization? That's where And the Forty Thieves comes in. Whether it's a smallish band of thieving savages, a group of cattle rustlers, highwaymen, or their high seas equivalents, or even Robin Hood and his merry men: a lone traveler, or band of adventurers is almost guaranteed to be assailed by men looking to take his money or other valuables.
