I played one in 4th edition, back then it was an own premade profession, but you can easily make one in 5th by combining the skills of a guard with those of a hunter and then reduce some skills.
Mine was of nivesian ancestry and a magic dilletant with a limited number of spells. He used to help bring groups over the border mountains to the shadowlands to infiltrate those.
Ok thanks, that's helpful. What would the english translation of these Grenzreiter be? Also, does every nation have them?
Does any German 5e book (like Compendium II) have these as an archtype or profession, so we can see an example of a 'typical' ranger type character?
Aside from the ones employed by provinces or rulers are there any independent ranger types out and about in the wilds?
@Hex the Dark
Is there a 'typical ' profession for Order of the Ram given anywhere, or a Fighting Style?
