Signal Rangers

The Signal Rangers are the messengers and protectors of “Old Orange,” our pennant. They lead Calamity Parades, give tours, and generally shine our colors far and wide.

The Signal Rangers lead our Banner ceremonies, and give New Ranger tours at MONSTRO CAMPS. They also team up with Conjure Guard members to form “Radiomancer” teams to broadcast “the signal” of Orders, instructions to Rangers in the field.
