Also..
Food for thought.
Having guilds with the Alpha Strike ability is a very bad idea.


Backstab is an alpha strike. Anyone wielding a dagger can do it too.

What people seem to forget is this.
The Rangers of Ithilien were just Gondorian soldiers.
And the Rangers of the North were Dunedain warriors uniting under their chieftain.
There was no magic and no special sneaking and backstabbing skills.
Straight up soldiers and warriors.

In fact only one of them ever displayed magic affinity and that was Aragorn.
More so that was elven magic.


Amberlee is right... The focus lies too much on defence, and the magical skills make no sense. Rangers should be coded as a real warrior guild.
But there must be some diversity between all the guilds in Genesis. I dont feel comfortable speaking about my idea' s on the forum, afraid of giving too much guildinfo (most old players know everything, but some dont).

Strider was a pussy, If Zingil and Xar had been in charge there only would have been 2 books.
Point being, the characters we create are pretty superhuman.
So it is safe to assume that there are thousands and thousands of boring plain npcs doing the other roles and we few are the special ones..

Rangers is such a unique and special guild in Gen that how to bring it up to date while still doing justice to the past is a real challenge.

I think the option of two branches soldier and ranger is the easiest way to do that.
If the soldiers feel a bit like knights, mercs, glads etc etc. Well that is kind of unavoidable and not all together bad. Plus at least they have their cross dressing secret lives to fall back on.

The Rangers are part Tolkien and part Elessar. We don't want to do away with either half.

How on earth is THAT relevant?
The important thing is that the guild is updated and thus becomming playable compared to the other guilds, not to keep something for someone that is no longer here.
Unless you meant the guild structure.
That I can understand but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be updated and preferably soon.
