The Ranger - A Dungeon World Playbook

Watermarked PDF

The core package of the ranger is hunting, trapping, and familiarity with the things that grow and live in the wilderness. Tracking is automatic, no roll, as it will probably come up rare enough that we didn't want you to fumble on such a key skill. Setting traps is riskier, mostly that there's a chance the trap won't work, or won't work as good as you hoped, but the move is also simple, relying largely on player creativity.

You also can use Wisdom in place of Intelligence for wilderness-related lore checks, gain a damage bonus against beasts, and after the kill you can attempt to harvest the remains for food and other materials, which you can sell, or use to create tools, armor, possibly alchemical or magic items depending on what you get.

As you level up you can build on what you know, or expand your repertoire: gain an animal companion (and even a monstrous one), learn strategies against large creatures (to avoid being splattered all over the place before you can topple them), hone your skills with ranged weapons (aside from likely having a good Dexterity you don't start out with any inherent advantage with them), and even draw upon the primal energies that ebb and flow throughout the land.

This product contains three files.

The first is a letter-sized character sheet that uses our new character sheet layout (so we could fit all of the advanced moves on the back).

The other two are digest-sized PDFs, one in color, the other in black and white to make it easier to print at home. They both contain:

  • The ranger class (which includes 29 advanced moves)
  • New weapons, armor, and dungeon gear
  • A Director's Cut with questions to ask yourself when rolling up a ranger, explanations/clarifications for some of the moves, nine more advanced moves we couldn't fit on the sheet (including stuff for dual-wielding in case you want to evoke a classic ranger), a fourth background we also couldn't fit on the sheet, guidelines for basing rangers on terrain types, and alternative rules for healing, poisons (including some example poisons), and traveling

the way this version of the Ranger was written it allows for a lot of different ranger tropes to be played out with one character sheet, nicely done and well laid out. [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
