And then some adjustments to children attributes, to be in effect in the next patch.
          Previously children NPCs didn't differ all that much from the adults, but now their physical and mental attributes have been checked and adjusted. In general children are now weaker and more vulnerable to physical harm. But even if they lack the strength and endurance of the adults the level of some attributes eg. dexterity and agility can surprise sometimes.
          Children may sometimes choose to participate in fights if their village is threatened, but in general children are now more eager to flee upon serious danger. Boys are often slightly more eager to fight than girls who wisely rather run to alarm adults, and even the neighbouring villages if need be.
          Combat skills of the children have been also checked and adjusted to quite inferior level. The lack of strength is now seen especially with their unarmed combat skills. If they land a kick or punch there's not much power in it. Armed with a knife or so they may cause some proper wounds, but in general children rarely pose a real threat anymore.

Will they become part of the other villages, or will they return to their empty village to putter about?

I don't know actually :)
People escaping from villages, and alarming the neighbouring villages, is not a new feature but has been around for quite some time. I only never checked in detail how such NPCs are handled when they leave the village. The most plausible guess is that they lose themselves in the wilderness, endlessly escaping further and further away.

Where did mom and dad both go on Lonely Settler? We need to contact Pinerton Detective agency!
