Rise of the Dragons
Wood Elf Ranger
“Once I choose my prey, I never lose the trail or miss my mark. The hunt is all.”
The last remaining member of your tribe, you are the epitome of the rugged individualist. You know better than to ascribe qualities such as mercy or bounty to the forests of your youth. There are a thousand ways to die in the wilderness, and you have survived through muscle, wits, and will.
You grew up in the wilds, far from civilization and the comforts of town and technology. The wilds are in your blood. Even in places where you don’t know the specific features of the terrain, you know the way of the wild.
Wanderer You have an excellent memory for maps and geography, and you can always recall the general layout of terrain, settlements, and other features around you. In addition, you can find food and fresh water for yourself and up to five other people each day, provided that the land offers berries, small game, water, and so forth.
Personality Trait I once ran twentyfive miles without stopping to warn my clan of an approaching orc horde. I’d do it again if I had to.
Ideal Life is like the seasons, in constant change, and we must change with it.
Bond I am the last of my tribe, and it is up to me to ensure their names enter legend.
Flaw There’s no room for caution in a life lived to the fullest.
