Band of Bastards is the projected third DLC for Kingdom Come: Deliverance, following From the Ashes and The Amorous Adventures of Bold Sir Hans Capon, and preceding A Woman’s Lot. Not much is known about the DLC, but it is projected to be released in early February 2019.
Please note the following is largely speculation based off the announcements and releases by Warhorse Studios and is subject to error and change prior to the release date.
To be announced.
The Sasau Region is plagued by bandit marauders, and after the recent war, the local lords lack the manpower to combat the issue. To protect his people, Sir Radzig Kobyla has employed a mercenary captain by the name of Sir Kuno, Baron Rychwald, to lead his "band of bastards" on regular patrols throughout the area. They are tasked with protecting the people and ridding the area of the bandit scourge. However, they are former criminals, and known to be unpredictable, so they will need a guide - someone who knows the area, and can keep them in line. That guide, of course, is Henry.
Some time after Baptism of Fire, Henry arrives at the camp, where he meets The Stone, who does not speak a word, and then Jakey, who explains that The Stone had his tongue ripped out by the executioner. Jakey introduces Henry to the drunken Bearman brothers, then him to where Sir Kuno is overseeing the training of Stephen and Dangler. Kuno immediately puts Henry into the combat arena with Dangler to test him out. Once he has shown he can handle himself, Kuno wants Henry to ride out with them and guide them around the area.
Henry can learn more about the Band of Bastards, who all have their own unique stories about how they ended up in Kuno's mercenary gang, while they patrol the region in Bad Blood. First, you will notice smoke on the horizon and investigate a Burned-out Farm. The unarmed inhabitants of the farm have all been slaughtered, much to Henry's horror - and some of the Bastards seem more interested in looting what's left than finding out who is behind it.
After looking for clues, Henry discovers a note, and a distinctive shield. Kuno wants you to report to Sir Radzig, or you can decide to search for the raiders first. Follow the clues to the camp, then return to Kuno and tell him what you have found. The Bastards will immediately head off towards the camp to launch an attack. Once the bandits have been dispatched, Kuno orders you to return to Sir Radzig and tell him what has transpired, while they look for more loot - er, "clues".
Given the number of Unimplemented Quests that involve the Merhojed soldier's camp, and the burning of the nearby Kolben's farm (where Timmy hid during My Friend Timmy), it is possible that this DLC will pick up on some of those threads.
