    I don't think so. having played Rangers for years that would fly in
    the face of the rational expressed for the "Species Enemy" bonus. The
    rational is as follows; (this is paraphrasing(sp)BTW) Rangers spend a
    great deal of time learning the fighting styile physiology(sp) and
    habits of their species enemy. They study thier weapons and armor to a
    fanatical level learning all the strenghts and weaknesses of that race,
    thus gaining the bonus. An individual might conform to the above,
    pyshiology obviously, but wouldn't be worth the rangers time to study to
    that degree. A class would be much the same as an idividual though it
    might be possible if your gm allowed it. There is some rational behind
    say a wizard slayer in a barbarian culture (Vos, perhaps) but over all
    I'd say that race is the best determination of the species enemy. Oh and
    I wouldn't use race in the sense of khinasi, Vos, etc. I would say
    human, elf, goblin etc. when speaking of race or rather species. (Boy
    that was a lousy sentence).

    I think that the key factor in the ranger's options is that the
    species enemy is easily recognizable for what it is. Thus the specific race
    could be a choice, but neither alignment nor class should be chosen for the
    species enemy because you can not tell just by looking what a persons class
    or alignment is (unless we're dealing with stereotyped characters).

    Quick Question

    Could a Ranger choose a specific person for his enemy?
    How bout a certian alignement and class (eveil thief for example)
    How 'bout just that person's class (thief for example)
    How bout thier race?


    This goes in order (from top to bottom) of the specificity I'd like.

    Got the PHB in front of me and it says "must select a species enemy"
    That would include race without much of a strain. A specific class is
    reaching a bit. But a align/class or just one person? I would have to
    say that it would be too narrow for the way I read the rules. This
    sounds like a great question for your DM.

    Just my 2 ep worth,
    AmS.

    Race only, and then only with DM's (perhaps drunken)
    permission. I could see an Elven ranger with Human as
    species enemy...

    No, but I'd allow it. Do you really hate this guy so much you want to
    waste your lovely specail ability on him alone? Actually, I've allowed
    rangers to take _organizations_ as their species enemy.

    > How bout a certian alignement and class (eveil thief for example)
    > How 'bout just that person's class (thief for example)

    A gray area, since these things can be very hard to determine for the
    character. And thief in particular is not a good choice; thief is an
    urban creature, too lazy to be a threat to nature, and therefore of no
    concern to a ranger.


    > How bout thier race?

    Sure. But a ranger with a PC race for species enemy is going to have a
    problem. What race is that evil thief you have a grudge agaisnt anyway?
    :)

    Quick Question

    Okay, I am the DM and I was looking to see if anyone had any very
    specific info from a book.
    My PCs will meet a bunch of elves (an Archer [Fighter kit], a Forest
    Runner [Ranger kit, goal is to stop currupt or evil powerful people.
    Regents], and a basic Enchanter) who are trying to stop my sadistic and
    I HAVE TO BE REALLY EVIL charachter (evil thief regent of guilds). My
    other regnt, a good thief, and a domain ruler is planning to give the
    Aevlinwode back to the elves upon conquering Anuire. So if he can tell
    the elves this they will help him but at the same time will be watching
    my eveil thief and all other people of power.

    For the Forest Runner's species enemy the Complete Ranger's Handbook
    says, "A forest runner's species enemy must have some associastion with
    the regime he opposes."

    I was just pondering the PC race enemy thought (although bandits are
    listed as a good species enemy)till I learn what other animals he (the
    thief) likes, besides a ferret that is.



    "ooooooohhh! I get a +4 to hit and to damage against an animal a first
    level wizard could kill without spells."

    Yes, the Forest Runner. It says in the book that the Runner will get
    a personal nemesis after reaching 4th level, but I don't think he
    will have any specific bonuses against this person.

    Anyway, as Rasmus Juul Wagner said, if a ranger is going to use a +4
    to-hit bonus on one single person instead pf an entire race, well, by
    all means let him. (At last, a player who isn't min/maxing.)

    Isn┬┤t there a kitin the Complete Book of Rangers that does something like
    this?
    I think it┬┤s a Robin Hood type of ranger.
