Explorer Ranger

An explorer is a far-ranging traveller, but he never wanders.

He strikes out purposefully into the great unknown by land or sea, set to expand the boundaries of the known and to bring back the secret routes that lead the way to glory.

Explorer Spells

Explorers gain a special selection of spells. You gain access to these spells at the levels specified. Once you gain access to an explorer spell, you always have it prepared. Explorer spells don’t count against the number of spells you can prepare each day. If you gain an explorer spell that doesn’t appear on the ranger spell list, the spell is nonetheless a ranger spell for you.
