Absolutely nothing. The ranger class has no alignment requirements and no aligned class features. There is no such thing as an ex-ranger; they cannot “fall.” They aren’t even banned from using spells of conflicting alignments, the way clerics are.1 Using aligned spells is an aligned act, but in most cases a minor one and would only shift alignment over ...

Yes, a Ranger can gain additional spells added to their spell list in a Pathfinder only game. The following are only examples I could find, I'm sure there are more. Mystic Past Life (Samsaran Alternate Racial Trait, Advanced Race Guide) - Allows you to add 1 + your caster attribute modifier spells to your class's list, must be the same type i.e divine must ...

No, it is only spells listed on the Ranger spell list. A Ranger typically learns these spells in a manner similar to druids in that they are essentially communing with nature to gain influence over it. A Ranger's spell list is limited because casting spells is not their forte. They are first and foremost warriors and trackers. The spellcasting is ...

As BBlake said Ranger's Spell list is limited due to the Rangers main focus not being spells. Assuming you are not wanting to multi class the options below are useful. Thanks to Rob and GoBLiN for showing me some other options. I have added them below Traits Two World Magic: Lets you add one 0-level spell from a class that is not your own to your spell ...

There isn't much you can do to increase your beast companion's attacks. This is unfortunate, but the good news is that it's going to get better. At early levels, a beast companion's attack is going to stink. For whatever reason they gave it a static modifier that is going to put it way behind even the worst optimized characters meaning that probably from ...

Jeremy Crawford answered a tweet on this, actually: It means whatever max the DM sets in the given hp range. If the DM uses the average in the stat block, the max is 11. https://thesageadvice.wordpress.com/2014/09/23/ranger-companion-hp/ So this means if your DM uses the average hp for creatures, then you would use average for your companion. If she ...

This means that it can either have 13 HP, or you can roll 3d8 for its HP, just like any monster or NPC. Note that it is possible for it to have maximum HP of 24, but there is only a 1 in 512 chance of that happening. You should also note that the average of 3d8 is actually 13.5, so rolling is statistically a better choice. However, with a sample size of 1, ...

To spell it out explicitly, in general, a Ranger can only prepare and cast spells on the ranger list. There might be specific abilities or special rules that break this general rule. A ranger can activate a scroll, casting the spell from the scroll without having to have it prepared or using any spell slots, if the spell appears on the Ranger list. Rangers ...

Stealth and hidden are currently very much in the court of the DM. To some degree this ability takes some of the shakiness out of the current rules and gives you a measure of certainty. Right now, at least to me, the stealth, invisible and hidden rules indicate the following: If you are invisible but not hidden, your position is known, and you can be ...

As for a fox animal companion, I’d use the jackal stats. Foxes and jackals are extremely similar, in size and in niche, a result of convergent evolution. For the wild shape and giant fox, the panther seems like a good match, although the giant fox would be more reliant on hearing and scent than a cat of equal size. Also, you might want to consider using the ...
