Spellcasting Rangers in the Age of Mortals

The spellcasting ability of rangers is granted by the gods, which means a ranger must be devoted to a god in order to access the spellcasting abilities of the class. However, for nearly four decades after the Chaos War, the gods were gone, and rangers were without their patrons. Mystics replaced clerics as the main sources of divine magic, but this left rangers without one of their tools.

As a variant to allow spellcasting rangers during the time of the gods’ absence in the Age of Mortals, rangers can be considered to draw their spellcasting power through mysticism rather than directly from a god. With this variant, ranger spellcasting abilities are changed slightly. They no longer need to prepare spells, instead casting their spells from a list of spells they know, similar to a mystic. The following tables show how many spells rangers know and how many they can cast every day, per level.
