Rangers are the vanguard of civilization. They seek to subdue nature, to blunt its harmful energies while protecting it from the ravages of civilization. Rangers are instrumental in charting new paths and roads through great forests, discovering new mountain passes, and delving into the great wastelands to find lost wonders and forgotten dangers. These explorers are at home in the wild, able to cook their own game and to build campsites to live in nature. Rangers possess many skills of the martial arts which are unknown to city-trained warriors.
