  1. There’s an alternative Ranger called “The Hunter” that I believe came from Something Awful user Fenarisk. The big differences are replacing Race / Alignment with Drive / Background (which I much prefer), an extra Bond, a few new starting items, a few tweaked Advanced Moves, a rewritten “God Amidst the Wastes,” and an added 6-10 advanced move about improvising armor, weapons, and useful items out of your natural surroundings.

  2. There’s a slightly tweaked Ranger playbook in Perilous Wilds that makes some cool changes to the companion (and I think some moves involving travel, since this supplement changes the perilous journey move). However it shares many moves with the classic Ranger from the base game.

  3. What’s your purpose, Damian Jankowski? Like, just looking to see what options are out there? Trying to find one with a particular spin? Looking for inspiration?

  4. I know the original ranger playbook had some issues with the wording of the moves like with called shot and some others. Yea basically looking for experience of other players on which 3rd party ranger style books were really enjoyable.

  5. Gotcha.

    No experience with other 3rd party options, but here’s the ranger from Stonetop.

    There’s obviously some Stonetop-specific stuff in there, but I’ve got about 2 years of seeing this in play and I’m pretty happy with it.

    I’m currently thinking about tweaking Call the Shot to this, though:

    When you shoot at a target that isn’t defending itself, either deal your damage or name your target (knee, hand, pendant, etc.) and roll +DEX: on a 10+, deal your damage and pick 2; on a 7-9, deal your damage and pick 1:

    * Hit a weak spot; either ignore armor or deal +1d4 damage

    * Stun, hobble, or hinder your target

    * Make them drop whatever they’re holding

    * Don’t deal your damage after all
