2024 Character Creation Challenge Day 28

31 DAY CHARACTER CREATION CHALLENGE

You can read more about the challenge here and here.

Dedicated to Niko whom once lamented “man you have SW in the scene for like 10 or more years and you cannot get a supplement with pregens.”

The challenge is almost over and we are coming to Rangers, second to last class available in the Swords & Wizardry Complete rulebook. Rangers gain many impressive abilities, but not Fighters' benefits of STR improving to-hit and damage. Most importantly, they begin with 2d8 at first level, which is massive. Here are attributes rolled 3d6 in order:
