Ranger

Part of the calling of the ranger is the Meandering Wanderlust deep within their souls. Thus they rarely choose to settle in one place for too long. Although there are rare cases of Rangers will take up residence in a small to medium sized territories, choosing to become the guardian of nature there.

Rangers live simple lives and feel little need for wealth although they will use what is found for helping the land. Those that chose to take up residence in a forest or a large wood will build their homes from the land around them using only fallen trees and natural materials. They will never harm a natural creature unless forced to defend themselves. Again a ranger simply cannot bring themselves to harm the land or its creatures.

A ranger will occasionally venture forth into the cities due to their curiosity and wander lust. They will spend only the required time there to get what they need or to visit with friends and allies.

The ranger, at start must choose a particular race that they find unbearable. Usually through the witnessing of some injustice being done, or any other act they do not favor they will plant a seed of hatred for that race. As they grow, so will the fury inside them toward that race.

Some find the ranger to be aloof and difficult to deal with in a group. Always trudging ahead insisting on tracking, searching and exploring. It is sometimes difficult to work with one in a large group, but that is solely based on the specific personality of the ranger.
