The Rangers of Arden are a forces based in the Forest of Arden at Castle Arden. it is one of several hereditary forces, specifically recruiting the children of members. As most Amber forces, the unit is sexually mixed. The Rangers however encourage marriage and relations between members. Children born to members automatically gain thousands of unofficial uncles.

The Rangers have long had a working relationship and friendship with the Amber Fea. Many of the Fea have served in the Rangers and there is a tradition of intermarriage and breeding.

Trained to the highest levels, Rangers are often graduates of Benedict Personal Military Course
