Houserule: Spell-less Ranger Variant This ranger variant incorporates a few class features from the fighter and barbarian classes, but no longer has access to spells.

Houserule: Vision and Light Variant This houserule reduces the effects of less-than-optimal lighting, having darkness penalties apply only in pitch black conditions.
