Wild Wanderer (Ranger/Bard)
It is for reasons of faith, love of a nature spirit, or guardianship of the land that most rangers serve in their capacity as custodians of the wilderness. However, there are those who enjoy the simple pleasures of life, seek knowledge in all its forms, and hearken to the mystical call of the eternal song of the word itself. A wild wanderer is the keeper of outlandish lore and trusted custodian of the long forgotten woodsongs and spellchimes of ages past. It is these songs, fey rituals, and ancient lore that reflect the wild wanderer’s breadth of mystical and mundane talents. To the wild wanderer, the hoot of an owl, the sound of a fawn passing quietly through the undergrowth, or the deep and mystical places of the wild that serves as his greatest inspirations as he strives to become one with song of the world.
