Tell us your DW Ranger stories!
I played the Ranger once in DW. It was a Warforged Ranger (their animal companion is robotic too and gets an additional strength because of it)
named RNGR-1. He was a crossbow-sniper and wilderness guide and really loyal to the group. He had a robot cat named RNGR-2. As it was a cat it had the stubborn weakness. It just made so much sense because
1. the programming was faulty
2. it is a freaking cat. Stubborn bastards…
The fun of the character came because of the voice i used. It was fairly emotionless and steely, maybe channeling HK-47 a bit too much he also used fairly mechanical and scientific description of things. Like:
“Warning! Arcane Phenomenon. Artificial miniature humanoids detected!
Idea! Use artificial miniature humanoids as distraction to engage gryphon beast!”
The stubborn cat showed it weakness by being completely unhelpful to RNGR-1s teammates. They had to bribe the cat with rations to get it to do anything. To RNGR it was more helpful. We treated it as a team ressource though and so everyone cared more about the stupid cat.
It was also build for stealth with quick reflexes stealthy and keen senses. So it was more used fictionaly to scout rooms instead of just being a damage boost.
How about you? What made the Rangers in your games great?
