Rangers of the Gnarley
The rangers of the Gnarley are some 200 strong, most of them born woodsmen, with a few Half-Elves among them. The oath is not very restrictive, involving promises to protect the integrity of the forest, to help good folk in need, and to revere a Power of Good (usually Ehlonna ).
Corustaith is the place where rangers, woodsmen of renown, Swanmay's, and agents of good know how to meet discreetly and among good fellowship. The rangers patrol, guard and adventure in and out of the forest.
