Banner Saga Wiki


Kragsmen are reclusive and hostile human clans encountered in the second part of The Banner Saga. They are the denizens of Swartbog, a swampy area in the south-east, but have apparently moved also to northern regions of the world.

Kragsmen are frequently encountered in the company of battle-trained Warbears.
