Rangers

Primary tabs

No cave is too dark, no pathway too treacherous for the Ranger to scout and scour and know.

Rangers are the long-ranged eyes and ears of most Dwarf settlements. They patrol far from the safety of the Hold, often spending long periods out in the wilderness, keeping watch on the Dwarfs' many enemies and tracking dangerous beasts. It is they who explore hidden valleys, push through collapsed sections of the Underway and scale the cliffsides in search of new pathways. Rangers will hunt down and dispose of lone monsters or ambush small mobs of Goblins, but when they confront larger creatures or enemy armies on the march, signals are sent to the nearest outposts to alert them of the encroaching danger. When dealing with large enemy forces, Rangers will first attempt to forewarn all Dwarfs in the invaders' path before trailing the foe, picking off stragglers and waiting for an opportunity to wreak havoc. In this way, when the foe finally confronts a Dwarf force, the Rangers will often be in position to outflank it, arriving behind enemy battle lines to destroy war machines, pincushion lone Wizards, or launch an attack to otherwise help the Dwarfs gain an advantage.
