I would fight alongside Aragorn and Halbarad to the bitter end! I would join this Society. If you would honour me....

It appears ther are no objections to my joing therefore I shall just say that i think That tolkien didnt write enough about the Rangers.They were a cool bunch from what we know and I feel that LOTR would have been far cooler, even with just a small addition to it in its current form. But I spose that he did that to maintain the secretive, almost half-known nature of these men of the wild.
I wish i was one of the Rangers for real.....

I'm in, for they are my type of people! Dunedain of the North, and the stealth fighters of Ithilien!

I am Hanasian, a Ranger who rode south with Halbarad our captain, my other brethren, and the sons of Elrond.

I should probably put this elsewhere, but here is good enough....

===============

Just about everything mentioned about the Dunedain Rangers of the North in the books...

Quote:
"Few now remember them ... yet still some go wandering, sons of forgotten kings walking in loneliness, guarding from evil things folk that are heedless."

-Tom Bombadil … The Fellowship of the Ring- Fog on the Barrow-downs

Quote:
Rangers - The Dúnedain of the North after the fall of the North Kingdom, secret guardians of Eriador

-Unfinished Tales, index

Quote:
"…the Dúnedain of the North, ……..a strange people wandering secretly in the wild, and other men knew not their homes nor the purpose of their journeys, and save in Imladris, in the House of Elrond, their ancestry was forgotten.

-Silmarillion, Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age

Quote:
When the kingdom ended the Dúnedain passed into the shadows and became a secret and wandering people, and their deeds and labours were seldom sung or recorded. Little is now remembered of them since Elrond departed....

-Lord of the Rings, Appendix A

Quote:
In the wild lands beyond Bree there were mysterious wanderers. The Bree folk called them Rangers and knew nothing of their origin. They were taller and darker than the Men of Bree and were believed to have strange powers of sight and hearing, and to understand the language of beasts and birds. They roamed at will southwards and eastwards even as far as the Misty Mountains; but they were now few and rarely seen.

-Lord of the Rings, At the Sign of the Prancing Pony

Quote:
"I have thirty with me." said Halbarad "That is all of our kindred that could be gathered in haste."

-Lord of the Rings, The Passing of the Grey Company

When the Nazgul came to Sarn Ford and tried to enter the Shire:
Quote:
They came to Sarn Ford and the southernmost borders of the Shire. They found them guarded, for the Rangers barred their way.……some fled northward … Some still dared to bar the ford and held it while the day lasted.

-Unfinished Tales, The Hunt for the Ring

Aragorn speaks of some of their ways:
Quote:
"There is food in the wild,’ said Strider "berry, root and herb; and I have some skill as a hunter at need."

-Lord of the Rings, A Knife in the Dark

Aragorn is described as such:
Quote:
He wore high boots of supple leather that fitted him well……A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark green cloth was drawn closely about him……he wore a hood that overshadowed his face;……..a shaggy head flecked with grey, and in a pale, stern face a pair of keen grey eyes.

-Lord of the Rings, Strider

It's mentioned:
Quote:
Strider was content with a single cloak

-Lord of the Rings, A Knife in the Dark

When when the fellowship left Rivendell:
Quote:
Aragorn had Anduril, but no other weapon, and he went forth clad only in rusty green and brown, as a Ranger in the wilderness.

-Lord of the Rings, The Ring Goes South

A description of Halbarad's company of Rangers:
Quote:
A little apart the Rangers sat, silent, in an ordered company, armed with spear and bow and sword. They were clad in cloaks of dark grey, and their hoods were cast now over helm and head. Their horses were strong and of proud bearing, but rough-haired;…….There was no gleam of stone or gold, nor any fair thing in all their gear or harness; nor did their riders bear any badge or token, save only that each cloak was pinned upon the left shoulder by a brooch of silver shaped like a rayed star.

-Lord of the Rings, The Passing of the Grey Company

Rangers looked out for each other in the wild:
Quote:
’Rangers have been here lately. It is they who left the firewood behind.

-Lord of the Rings, A Knife in the Dark)

its something I put together with others on CoE, but it has fallen into the abyss of the site. I also posted this up in the misc. books forum.

here is an interesting bit to think about pertaining to the Dunedain Rangers.... When Arthedain fell and Aranarth took the title of 'Chieftain', he had younger brother or or possibly more brothers. The reference in Appendix A of the retreat from the defeat of Fornost mentions 'Sons of Arvedui, which would be Aranarth and at least one other. Consider the younger son or sons. They would have been a big part of the continued non-royal lines of the Dunedain of the north. Of course it's all speculation, but as a people to be able to field a cadre of Rangers through the centuries to Aragorn II, they had to of made some mighty men. I like to think that Halbarad was of the line of a younger son of Arvedui.
