This is also a place to chat!

Let's start things off with a question for you:


 


 


If you could be any Ranger-type character, from any genre, in any type of media (book/tv/movie/comic) - who would you be?


(pictures encouraged!)


 


 


Remember as you think of your answer, "Ranger" is a big concept!


 


It encompasses well-rounded characters and jacks of all trades that are strong, fast, agile, tough, smart and much more!

I'm Corinne.

I would love to join this group, get some accountability. 

I am at The Running Bard (http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/63635-the-running-bard/#entry1450086)
but I warn you, I have no clue how to use a forum so I am learning on the fly here

hope we can all work together!

Welcome Corinne! Muddydancer is correct, for starters you can look for some socializing threads, such as this one or the Campus tour mini challenges. If you have the time, browse the Challenge boards and try to find people that have similar goals as you or something about their threads that you enjoy, such as a specific theme that you like. Good luck on your first challenge!

Who would I be?  Well if we are going for the ideal, there is only one that comes to mind for me.

A classic choice. Can't go wrong with Drizzt.

My Ranger  :pride: Inspiration

But more built.

Not sure why my little dude under my avatar is different, anybody care to explain?

Probably because you've selected the Adventurers' sign  :pirate:

Interesting choice!

Strider would be my choice. I love Drizzt Do'Urden as well, and it was a hard choice but would definatly have to go with this Ranger of the North!

I would totally pick Strider too, if only he were a lady.

 

I'm going to have to go with my favorite genetically engineered super human (i dreamed about being her when I watched the show when I was like 12):

Hmm tough one. I find inspiration all over the place... 
Guess ranger appealed mostly to me because i don't specialize a lot. Workout is Crossfit and broad has always been the nature of my interests :)
 
My pick goes to .... Arrow / Oliver Queen atm

Driz'zt would definitely be up there for me, but I would also like some female role models!

Hey Rangers and rangers-to-be, can I join in? I'm still trying to find my ranger role model... I do like the idea of Max from Dark Angel though. Really enjoyed that show!

 

My current challenge focuses on running, yoga, and not eating everything in sight, which seems to point more towards scout or druid or something along those lines, but I feel like I aim to be pretty well-rounded in my routines. Once I get back into the swing of things, I intend do be doing varied bodyweight workouts and cardio to round out my regime as it stands. My goals are to max out my Stamina (running the entirety of a 5k), Dexterity (yoga and stretches for increased flexibility), Constitution with a dash of Strength (Abs work, push ups). Plus as life side quests I'm working on my Wisdom (taking control of finances, making sure I keep learning new things) and Charisma (finding self-confidence through therapy).

Hi there Rangers. I'm Honeybadger and I need help! I think this is where I belong. I am having a bit of an identity crisis as my goal is focused on running at the moment. That suggests I would be a scout. However, I tend to run slowly over short distances and focus more on strength and endurance rather than speed. If not for a shoulder injury (thanks Crossfit) my goals would be much more diverse. I guess Rangers just feel more like home...
