Saviors of Rhillau
The elven Rangers are a near-legendary military force, dating back to the first vestiges of elven civilization. Initially, the Corps provided the elves’ primary defense in the woodlands that pervade their homeland. Over time, as elven civilization flourished, and the elves began to build magical cities, the Ranger Corps evolved to protect the people from within as well as without. Today, the Rangers still provide protection in the wilderness (both to travelers passing through and to the natural wildlife, as well), and also act as the nation’s network of spies and, it is rumored, assassins. Any clandestine operations the Parliament and King need carried out are done so by agents of the Ranger Corps.
This is not to say that the Rangers only cater to stealthy acts. In times of war, the Corps stands side by side with the Army, defending the homeland or striking out into enemy territory, swords flashing. In times of peace, the stalwart defenders of the elven people stand ready, constantly moving from city to city, ensuring peace and prosperity across the kingdom.
In game terms, the Ranger Corps is made up of classes such as Rangers, Druids, Rogues, and Monks. Any elf or half-elf in these classes, or classes with a similar focus, may start the game as a member of the Ranger Corps
