The Bandit Wars refers to a series of raids in the Goldwood started in 296 PI before finally culminating in 291 PI that were carried out by Otlandic knights. Before 292, Hamerstoc was responsible for most of the attacks but in the spring of 291 the Crown of Otland began launching their own raids.

The plan called for a class war, to rid the Otlandic borders of peasant population, and the strengthening of the border to protect against any bandits coming south. The knights sought out anyone who was a bandit, related to the bandits or who could possibly become bandits. However, House Routronia was never able to launch a full-scale invasion of the Goldwood so they resorted to conducting small raids into the southern sections.
