Guardian Variant[edit]

Guardians are specialized and dedicated rangers that focus on their favored terrain and on destroying its favored enemies.
Their life is usually very alone, rarely visiting civilization. No guardian has spent more than a few years of his life in civilization, making they lack manners and presenting qualities that are usually looked down upon by city folk. Unknown to them, he makes up for it in knowledge and skill in combat.
