So, a couple years ago, I took it upon myself to revise the ranger class, as I wasn’t satisfied with the way it was presented in the Player’s Handbook. Mike Mearls and the D&D team felt the same, and have taken a couple stabs at revising the class on their own. In fact, all over the blogosphere, writers and designers were tackling the ranger.
My first attempt was…less than successful. It was strange, had multiple mechanics that didn’t quite jive with each other, and just didn’t quite match the concept that I wanted to convey. I tried again, but only provided six levels of class and never updated that version.
And then, not too long ago, I got a message from a reader who wanted to know if I’ve done any updates since posting version 2.2 of the class.
Well, the version I present to you today is version 5.2.
There have been a lot of changes. I think that they’ve been for the better, and hopefully you’ll agree.
So, without further ado, I present The Ranger.
