Story Summary

In the years before the War of the Ring, a young Dunedain whose fondness of the Elven scripts began his service with the Rangers. He would keep notes and journals of his days, and over the years he had either written or acquired a large amount of writings.

These writings are presented and narrated (where noted) by Gilrenna, the niece of the Ranger Hanasian, who came to possess much of his collection of writings.

The overall format is one of a personal journal of the Ranger Hanasian, where writing may be a bit choppy, awkward, vague, detailed, and such as one may be able to write depending on conditions in the field.  Notes by Gilrenna will usually appear prefacing the writings or after their completion and will be italacized. This style was inspired in part by how Christopher Tolkien went through his fathers notes to write The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, and the History of Middle Earth books.

As Gilrenna works her way through compiling the vast amounts of scrolls, loose parchments, and books in various conditions, either written or collected by Hanasian, she will add chapters to this story. If an event she presents precedes any that have been already presented, It will take its place as an earlier numbered chapter. in an attempt to present the reader with a chronological reading.

The Recollections of a Dunedain Ranger makes mention of some of the major players and I think I tagged them. It is considered multi-age in the fact some of his writings were done in the years pre-War of the Ring, during the War of the Ring, the end of the 3rd Age, in the 4th Age. Dates will only be given if Hanasian had dated the writing himself, or if Gilrenna can determine the approximate date based on events mentioned in the writings.
