• Nobles of Null is a forum based roleplay site where sci-fi and magic collide. Here, Earth remains fractured and divided despite humanity reaching out to the stars. Worse still, the trans-human slaves of one major power have escaped, only to establish their own Empire, seething with resentment at abuses of the past. Even the discovery of aliens, though medieval in development, has failed to rally these squabbling children of Earth together with its far darker implications. Worse still, is the discovery of the impossible - magic. Practiced by the alien locals, nearly depleted and therefore rare, its reality warping abilities remains abstract and distant to the general populace. All the while, unseen in the darkness of space, forces from without threaten to press in. For those with eyes opened by insight, it is clear that an era is about to end, and that a new age will dawn.

Ranger

"A force is only as good as its supporting infrastructure" - Somnya Srilin
Rangers traditionally live off the land and patrol large areas. The Ranger class of starships operates similarly to their ancient counterparts. Rangers traditionally carry a small crew, powerful engines, and ample weapon systems. Their compact size affords them great maneuverability and acceleration so they can get the most out of their weapon systems.

The drawback of their small size is their correspondingly small amount of carried supplies, living space, and reaction mass. This dramatically limits the range of the ship, requiring it to 'live off the land' by returning to motherships, space stations, or other facilities.

The Ranger makes for an excellent type of ship to employ in orbit-guard or other defensive duties inside of space that is already well developed. Rangers are far more cost effective than larger ships for the same kinds of missions when living space and supplies can be left at home.
