Rangers in the world of Terra A.D. are very similar to their counterparts in the Ancient world. They are tough wilderness warriors, living at the fringes of tribal areas. They train to survive in wilderness areas and act as guides to those crossing dangerous regions. They excel at martial combat against their favored enemies, and have a keen expertise in stealth and survival.
Archery expert ranger path: When firing into melee, the ranger can ignore the 50% chance to hit an ally engaged in the fight. In addition, the ranger can perform Mighty Deeds of Arms as a DCC warrior when fighting with a blowgun, sling, shortbow, or longbow.
Two-weapon expert ranger path: The ranger can fight with two one-handed weapons as though their Agility was 16 (although staff and spear are one-handed weapons, the ranger can only effectively wield one weapon of such size at a time; the second weapon must be smaller, such as a dagger or club). The ranger can perform Mighty Deeds of Arms as a DCC warrior when fighting with two weapons.
Wilderness skills: Rangers train to survive in both hostile natural environments and the very hostile, very un-natural environment of the ruins of ancient cities. Although their skills are still mostly only relevant out-of-doors, they function as well amidst Ancient ruins as they do in the wastelands. For example, rangers can climb sky-scraping ancient buildings as easily as they climb other steep cliffs, find water dripping from the tap of abandoned plumbing just as they find natural springs, and hide in alleyways as easily as they do behind natural outcroppings.
Rangers are considered trained in the following skills, and receive a bonus to skill checks equal to their class level plus their ability score modifier: Climb (Agility), Find and neutralize natural/Ancient traps (Agility), Sneak and hide (Agility), Strider (Agility), Survival (Personality).
Favored enemies: At 1st level, the ranger must choose one type of favored enemy from the following list: androids, cyborgs, devils, holograms, manimals, mutants, plantients, robots, slimes, horrors (creatures with a mutation check bonus special property). At 3rd, 6th, and 9th levels, the ranger can choose another favored enemy, so long as they've fought that enemy before.
Darwinian luck: Pure strain humans are very lucky as a species. Rangers regenerate spent Luck at the rate of 1 point for each 24 hour period.
AI recognition: Because of their close resemblance to the Ancient Ones, all pure strain humans (including rangers) gain a natural +2 to AI recognition rolls.
Archaic alignment: Rangers may begin as members of either The Clan of Cog or The Curators alignments.
Artifact check bonus: Rangers have a natural affinity for understanding the artifacts of the ancients, resulting in an added bonus to their artifact checks. Rangers use the artifact check bonus recommended for DCC clerics and thieves. Lvl 1-2 ACB +3, Lvl 3-4 ACB +5, Lvl 5-7 ACB +7, Lvl 8-9 ACB +9, Lvl 10 ACB +10
