Kind of a shock, I always played a Chaotic Good, Human, Fighter. But, Ranger??? Seriously?
I didn't know politician was an option for a ranger's targeted ire? Didn't know that putting a
corrupt regime and its supporters to the sword could align you as lawful or good either.
I've been known to play a paladin, never thought I'd actually be aligned with em. Learn something
new everyday. As far as the Fighter v Ranger bit. Well. I have spent more time in the wilderness
than carousing in the bars and taverns. Honing a craft in practice rather than in battle I suppose
could make one a ranger rather than a fighter.
I Am A: Lawful Good Human Ranger (4th Level)
Lawful Good A lawful good character acts as a good person is expected or required to act.
He combines a commitment to oppose evil with the discipline to fight relentlessly.
He tells the truth, keeps his word, helps those in need, and speaks out against injustice.
A lawful good character hates to see the guilty go unpunished. Lawful good is the best
alignment you can be because it combines honor and compassion. However, lawful good
can be a dangerous alignment when it restricts freedom and criminalizes self-interest.
Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant
for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often
unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.
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. A ranger's Wisdom score should
be high, as this determines the maximum spell level that he can cast.
