Overview

Basics

Ranger.jpg

Description: Rangers are skilled stalkers and hunters who make their home in the woods. Their martial skill is nearly the equal of the fighter, but they lack the latter's dedication to the craft of fighting. Instead, the ranger focuses his skills and training on a specific enemy - a type of creature he bears a vengeful grudge against and hunts above all others. Rangers often accept the role of protector, aiding those who live in or travel through the woods. His skills allow him to move quietly and stick to the shadows, especially in natural settings ,and he also has special knowledge of certain types of creatures. Finally, an experienced ranger has such a tie to nature that he can actually draw on natural power to cast divine spells, much as a druid does, and like a druid he is often accompanied by animal companions.

Notes

  • When reaching Ranger levels with bonus Favoured Enemy feats at epic character levels (not just epic ranger levels), an Epic Feat may be chosen from the Epic Ranger Bonus list instead of the usual Favored Enemy.
  • A good example of using one level of Ranger in epic levels is with a caster type. With just one level of Ranger in epic levels you can take Improved Combat Casting ( provided you already have the prereqs for the feat) instead of your first favored enemy as well as pickup discipline or some other useful skills that may not be available to your caster class, and usually most pure casters can get away with losing one level to their caster level.
