Learning Spells: The Ranger knows all Ranger spells of circles they have slots for.

Spell Preparation: Each dawn or dusk, if the Ranger did not prepare spells at the previous dusk or dawn, they may meditate for 30 minutes & make a Concentration check (DC 10 + 3x the highest {C} refreshed); the Ranger gains a +6 bonus on this check while in a natural setting, & a stacking +2 bonus for every additional 10 minutes they meditate. When complete, the Ranger refreshes their daily spell slots, then prepares a spell for each slot they have, up to that slot's circle.

Casting Spells: To cast a Ranger spell they have prepared, the Ranger must expend the spell's slot, also expending the action noted in the spell's Cast Time & providing its listed components.

Metamagic: While preparing spells, the Ranger may add the circle adjustment from a Metamagic feat they know to a spell's circle to determine the slot needed to prepare that spell; when casting a spell prepared this way, they apply the Metamagic feat's effects.

Swift Tracker:

The Ranger takes no penalty on Survival checks for overland movement.


The Ranger chooses Skirmish or Sneak Attack, & applies bonus damage dice equal to their Striker number on qualifying attacks.

Sudden Critical:

The Ranger may expend a swift action & choose a creature they are aware of; until their next turn, they increase their critical threat range by the listed value against that creature, & add that value to their confirmation rolls against it. If this feature is gained from another class, apply the aggregate of the bonuses.

Woodland Stride:

The Ranger may move though mundane plant growth at full speed, without suffering any damage or other impairment.

Trackless Step:

The Ranger may use the Stealth skill in natural terrain without having cover or concealment (though they must spend a turn action to modify their clothing to match a terrain type).

While beginning Initiative, the Ranger may expend a Surprise! immediate action to gain a move action. They move at ½ speed during this action. Creatures with a lower Initiative have disadvantage on Perception checks made during this movement.
