Earlier I made a review that seemed to have had some misinformaiton:

I am freshly starting on D&D 5e and wasn't aware that Wizard of the Coast have created a "revised" version of the ranger, and therefore I did believed that this product was using house rules which was incorrect.

So it is following both the visuals and the rules of D&D 5e.

Hello Søren, Thank you for taking the time to review my product. You’re right that this version of the Ranger class cannot be found in the original ‘core rules’ as published in the Player’s Handbook by Wizards of the Coast in 2014. However, this is because the original Ranger class, from the core rules, is actually considered to be weaker than the other classes - and I quote Wizards of the Coast themselves: “(…) the ranger (…) ranking as D&D’s weakest class by a significant margin.” Therefore, Wizards of the Coast released a new version of the Ranger class in 2016 on their official website called ‘The Ranger, Revised’: http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/features/unearthed-arcana-ranger-revised. The Revised Ranger was intended to be more fun to play and to be stronger during combat. I used the revised rules to create this Ranger character because I think they are more ‘fair’ for everybody around your table, especially new players. I can assure you that I did not ‘house rule’ anything in a deliberate way. You can message me directly if you happen to come across other (possible) errors. Thanks in advance and good luck playing the Lost Mine of Phandelver! Rinse

It's an Elven Ranger. I presume it's rolled up as per the rules. Great. It looks just like the character sheets for the other pre-gens for Lost Mine of Phandelver. Also great. But the beauty of the LMoP pre-gens is that they all interact with the plot in certain ways. While this character's background gives a (rather unjustified) rationale for starting the adventure, it doesn't, as the other characters' backgrounds do, give the character incentive to advance the plot of the adventure. The only reason to (optionally) pay for a character sheet for this adventure is if the creator had put as much thought into creating a Personal Goal for the character that made as much sense as the ones for the included characters. That is not the case here. Plus, there are a couple of typos and awkward wordings that make the quality not match the product it's trying to fit into.
