    I plan to make a fan film, based/taken from the first book, Ruins of Gorlan.

    So far, I have made part of a "Ranger's Apprentice" map on Minetest, and have gotten a few player skins together.

    I was wondering if anyone out there would be interested in this project.

    If you are, please comment below. I will need voice actors, ingame actors, and builders.

    Thanks! (Also if this is not the place to ask, please let me know.)

    In Ranger's Apprentice John Flanagan wrote many times about how either Will, Horace hate dried meat and I think that is John Flangan's personal hatred of Beef Jerky.

    What do you guys think?

    Uh,hi.I don't visit the wiki much but I had this idea,and I normally don't post them.Just a note,I did not like the death of Alyss,therefore I am pretending she did not die.If I had one wish it would be That this was canon.

    Well,not THIS,since I'm not good at writing,but I mean her still being alive.I think you knew that...uh...ok,so this is it.I call it Stepping Stones,but that may change.

    Note: One of the reasons Maddy was Will's apprentice was to cheer him up,and since Alyss is alive I sort of left her out.Hahaha....sorry?

    Stepping Stones

    Prologue Will smiled.Alyss smiled.she passed him the bundle in her arms.“What will we call her?"she asked him.

    “Anything you want."

    “That's a strange name,"she teased him.If he had been smiling e…

    I love all the characters except Gilan. The story is amazing. The action is endless. There is too much romance(I hate romance). And each book is always worth waiting for to come out and read.

    Though I bet you guys are already tired of my posts, here is another, I have created a wiki in of which you can make a character and explore the world of John Flanagan. I need editors and players for this wiki for it to thrive, if you have any questions just visit my talk page. Here is the link.

    Hello guys, I am writing this short blog post to tell you all that after exhausting the Google search bar numerous times with searches such as 'Rangers Apprentice game' I have finally found a game set in a world not unlike Rangers Apprentice. 'Settlers- Rise of an Empire' is an originally European game where you construct cities and build armies. Though this is not first person, it is a very good game.

    Hey guys, this is Khan Tonto, I'm trying to create a wiki where people can write short stories and novellas about the map above, and I'm hoping it will catch on. Basically, I have created the above map for an outline, it is supposed to be based off of Medieval Europe, much like Ranger's Apprentice. Take Talasholm for example, it is both based off of the United Kingdom and also Araluen, it is a small island nation off the coast of a larger mainland. The name of this land I have created is called 'Aurasa', sounding much like 'Eurasia', which is a word that refers to both Europe and Asia. Like the Ranger's Apprentice series (excluding the Wargals), this land doesn't have any fantasy creatures, not even Wargals. Its only inhabitants are humans…

    The fanfiction guidelines require a rating for all fanfics.                                                                                   Rating: G

    Tahir Ibn Mustafa, captain of the Arridi guard, observed the sacked village, he slowly made his way across the village's square, broken pottery crunching underfoot. The village had been raided the night before, likely by desert bandits of sorts, they had come quickly, slaughtered the residents or ran them off, then took what they could before officials like Tahir could confront them. Tahir's second in command, Kareem, motioned Tahir over to a motionless corpse, the body was of a man's, he was dressed in a simple keffiyeh and a long traditional robe worn by most Arridi men. It was not the man…

    Hey everyone who reads this and already knows me,

    It's been so long since I last checked on this Wiki. Waaaay too long...

    What happened? Why have I been away so long? And what the heck, everything has improved so much since I last checked this Wiki out!

    I suppose it's my schoolwork which has kept me off Wikia. And, perhaps, I even sort-of forgot about this place... Forgot the fun I've had.

    But now, I am back. I've got Summer Holidays and I really, really plan to spend more time here. I promise :3

    Feel free to comment ;)

  • Jumbofluff

    Wow. Let me just say some stuff.

    1. Please don't create more pages!

    This is an important one. It sounds silly because it is. STOP CREATING EXTRA PAGES UNLESS YOU'RE GOING TO PUT EFFORT INTO IT. 3 words- or three sentences is NOT ENOUGH. At least 10 good sentences should be made to start a page off.

    2. Don't edit if you don't have anything to contribute.

    This is simple. DO NOT HIT THE EDIT BUTTON unless you have something useful to say. DO NOT TALK ON THE ARTICLE PAGES. You can do that on talk pages. That's why they're called talk pages. Think about it. If John Flanagan saw your edit, would he be impressed? If not, don't do it.

    3. Use good wiki-writing skills. Like they do at Wikipedia.

    Okay. If John Flanagan came across the Ranger's Apprentice W…

    New Deal

    December 26, 2013 by GeertHam

    I'm back, baby! No really, I'm back. I've read the last book, The Royal Ranger, and I'm determined to make this already-so-great wiki even beter, into the wiki these series deserve! I've thought of a new deal program, increasing the generaal awesomeness of all pages. This will have to happen on all pages. (Grammar) mistakes will be corrected, information will have to be added and layout will have to be adapted (to be more like actual Wikipedia articles). I've already started with countries (eg Iberion and Toscano, check hem out for and example) and I will continue this until all countries have been done. As I do this, I ask you all to edit eg characters and storylines. Now help with this New Deal, and make this the wiki these series deser…

    Wiki Maintenance

    August 23, 2013 by MiniMachine

    Hello Users!

    I would just like to reinforce the necessity of bringing maintenance to the attention of an administrator. I've come across duplicates of categories, categories that have nothing in them, and categories that do not pertain to the wiki. I've also been finding pages that are duplicates of other pages (e.g. the "Races" page and the "Species" page). The "Species" page has been deleted, along with many categories. I ask that if you are uncertain about whether or not something already exists, look in the searchbar; do not just make a new page. If you need to, ask an administrator and we will help you. We want this wiki to stay clean, reliable, and functional. If you accidentally mess something up, do not be afraid to speak to an admi…

    After reading the first chapter of The Royal Ranger, I have forbidden myself from opening the book. The end of the series for me was when Will and Alyss got married. Done.

    John Flanagan Q & A

    June 26, 2013 by Falcon31

    Okay, on facebook a day or so ago I found a post which said John Flanagan had answered numerous questions fired at him by various fans.  So, I thought I'd post it up here.

    Just to give you an idea of what is contained within, Flanagan reveals some interesting ideas he has for Gilan and has confirmed that there will be more Brotherband books.... just a teaser to make you click on the link ;-)

    One of my most favorite things about the Emperor of Nihon-ja is that they use San after their names, like Halto-San and Arris-San. Those are the names of Halt and Alyss in Book 10. On my profile page I put my real name as Emmi-San. And no, I'm not Japanese (I'm German/Czech!) I just thought that the San would make my name look cool. I'm sort of a nerd and like Japanese stuff like the San thing. I don't even say hello, I say Namaste! But I'm getting off topic. I just thought the San thing was interesting and I felt that it should be brought into discussion. Let me know what you think. Tokude wa naku taikutsu kore o yonde itadaki, arigato zaimasu!

    Random map.

    May 20, 2013 by GeertHam

    Whenever I am bored (which happens very often) I just start to draw random maps of things. This time I made a map of Hibernia and it actually became very nice :D. I think it looks a bit like a game (like Rome Total War or something like that :S) where you have to conquer Hibernia. What do you guys think about it? I would be happy to get some comments about it :)

    Hi. The Name's Sage. I'm from Salnum (I made it up) and I'm a Ranger.

    My father, King of Salnum, Decided I wasn't fit to rule on the throne. When I was six, my father took me to Araluen, who's king was Duncan's Grandfather. Now you see, the Salnu can control one or two of the elements. I can Control all four. My father said the night we arrived at castle Araluen that he wanted me to become a Ranger. He died that night.

    Right, so by now everyone probably knows that the Royal Ranger, the upcoming book in the RA series is coming out this year. 

    Just today I found a new summary which had been released on, different to the one released earlier, it's a slightly better description of the books main storyline: John Flanagan makes a spectacular return to the world of Ranger's Apprentice - but what has happened since you last saw Will and his friends might shock you!

    Will took an oath when he joined the Ranger Corps. Does it mean nothing to him now?

    After a senseless tragedy destroys his life, Will is obsessed with punishing those responsible - even if it means leaving the Ranger Corps. His worried friends must find a way to stop him taking such a dark pa…

    Hello Everyone!

    The title of the last Ranger's Apprentice is soon going to be revealed on the Ranger's Apprentice Facebook page! 

    What We Know:

    • It takes place 15-20 years in the future.
    • Will is training his first apprentice.
    • It is the last book in the series.

    Do you have any theories about the plot of the last book? Do you think Will's apprentice will be male or female? Will Halt still be alive and active? Do Will and Alyss have any children of their own? Comment with your thoughts, and stay tuned!

    Map of Clonmel

    Hey everybody! A week ago I promised to make a map of Clonmel, as the English books lack them (the Dutch books have them though, so I just translated the names). Well, here it is:

    I am also going to do a map of Northern Nihon-Ja, as the Dutch books have one but the English ones don't. It should be up next week :)

    New Maps

    January 19, 2013 by GeertHam

    Hey everybody! I found out that the English versions of the books don't have all the maps included in the Dutch books. For instance, the Dutch books have maps of Clonmel and northern Nihon-Ja.

    As I am obsessed with maps, I got the idea to draw them over very neatly, scan them with my printer and post them on my page. Isn't that a good idea? (that was a retorical question, you don't really have to answer it.)

    I send an e-mail to mr. Flanagan himself, and he responded! I told him I really like this series and asked him about the setting of the new book, and he responded that it will be the last book in the series :( , the setting will be Araluen and it plays 16 years after the Lost Stories. I am so exited! Time for another nose smiley: :^)

    I am sooo excited about this. It was offically announced recently that John Flanagan is now working the twelfth book in the Ranger's Apprentice series *runs around shrieking with delight*

    Right, it's going to be set, apparently, a few years after the where the Lost Stories left off. It will be very interesting to see what direction John Flanagan is going to take with the series.

    Please leave any thoughts/plot theorys down below in the comment area.

    Wow! I lost power on Monday due to Hurricane Sandy, and it took UI six days to get my neighborhood back up. My street was one of the only areas in town that didn't have power! Now that my house is no longer 57 degrees, I can shower in my own home, and I have internet access, everything is back to normal. Living in the cold with nothing to do and flashlights for light made me think of the centuries before electricity. For example, Will and Halt lived all of their days the way I lived a measly six. I probably would have an emotional breakdown if I were sent back into a time period with no electricity. Man, I'm a wimp...

    Yeah, all right. Here's the truth, guys.

    • inhales* I'm not going to do a fanfic. Like, ever. For reasons the verge on 'I just don't wanna do one' and 'Can't be bothered.. too troublesome' but more realistically, 'I frankly don't have enough time'.

    I've got an underway project of my own (a manga I'm thinking of making) and also schoolwork.

    So yeah, this probably doesn't affect you in any way. But just to let you know why I wrote this is that I was looking on my previous blogs and I said that I was going to write one. And.. I haven't.

    So yeah, instead of fanfics, I'll be giving you concept art and descriptions for my characters instead. Hopefully you'll anticipate it more than my undone fanfics xD.

    August 22, 2012 by Kalkara15

    Hello people. How's the editing going? A few things. Firstly, just to reiterate my earlier but less widely visible ideas, the grammar, and spelling I have seen on some pages has been substandard. Merriam Webster has an online site, and its very useful. I have to use it all the time *laughs*. Aside from that, just make sure that you vary sentance structure and length. Hmmmmmm.... I'm starting to sound like an english teacher, aren't I? Uh-oh. Oh well. Good work people, keep it up.

    So I was browsing the internet as I do when I came across this on the Ranger's Apprentice facebook page, it said that John Flanagan, as well as publishing a Ranger's Apprentice book 12 is also planning two other books set prior to the main series.

    You can visit the page here: (you may have to scroll down a bit).

    I think it sounds fantastic, in all probilaty at least one will be centered around Halt and Crowley, maybe during the events after and leading up to the Hibernian from the Lost Stories. It would be interesting to have a book on how the Ranger corps came to be but that doesn't seem likely as I believe that John Flanagan will want to use the characters already included in the series.
