Subject: WFRP: Another career...

Well, those of you out there in awe of my creativity...(there is someone out there...right?) I am afraid I'm going to let you down. This is a new career, but it seems to have an uncanny connection to another career. I bet you never guess...


(figured it out yet...) Elven Basic Ranger Career

Elven communities are spread out throughout the forests. To maintain communication, every elven outpost and community relies upon a network of messengers. Spread along the border outposts and in the communities, these Forestrunners carry messages back and forth. Warnings of danger, fire, invasion, summoning healers, and all other purposes. Their roles are similar to that of the town criers in the cities. They typically nimble young elves play an important part in keeping elven safety and solidarity strong.


  • Conceal Rural
  • Dodge Blow
  • Flee!
  • Fleet footed
  • Follow Trail
  • Orientation
  • Silent Move Rural
  • Any ideas? Please don't suggest running shoes, loose fitting clothes or a headband

Career Exits: Beastfriend, Scout, Wardancer (yikes!)

Notes: Yes, I know that the career looks suspiciously like you know what. However, the entire advance sheme is different and the skills are based on a logical assumption, and some are different also. I feel, that this is a much more realistic career for elves, than say a R****r is for the D****s. I picture a heavily armed group of dwarfs moving down those tunnels. Dwarfs live a long time, and would hate to admit that something as minor as a goblin invasion is going to make them run for help. I still use the R****r, but I also think that this is a logical career for elves. I.proud to say, even if they never published the R****r career, I hope I would have thought it up!

If this variation seems rational to you, please respond. If you think I'm an uncreative thief, respond as well.
