Followers, idealists, and fanatics of the deity Skanþan, which is what the region of Skanþinawiô owes its name to. Both male and females in Thulê can become Rangers, but female characters must remain as virgins.
Rangers are protectors of the fauna and flora in Thulê against the misuse of man, which can be both native and foreign, though it is more likely to be foreign. They regard the elm, yew, and the willow as sacred trees. They also regard (especially) the (female) bear, the deer, the bee, the crow, and the toad as sacred, as well as the colours dark green, dark brown, and silver. They belong to a very loosely organised and leaderless "organisation" called "The Rangers", which is a part of "The Temple of the Source".
Rangers get an alignment based on their favourite deity, which is always Skanþan. Their alignment is known as "Artemisian". Artemisian characters are contemplative, harmonic, materialistic and unsympathetic.
Rangers start with 11 Character Role Skills! These are: - Acrobatics - Foraging - Healing - Missile - Navigation - Poetry - Religious Tradition - Stamina - Stealth - Swimming - Tracking
These skills make them great support characters, and given melee as a Trained Skill, they become even more useful.
