The building would be large if one saw what they expected, however ascribed within the beams and fences of this establishment is a series of ancient seals that were thought to be lost to the old Journeyman Order which was recently revived. The actual area is quite expansive, covering miles of terrain but it is housed on less than an acre of property. You see, it is larger on the inside than it is on the outside.
There is a total of five distinct biomes as well as an administrative office:
The Administrative Office:
The administrative office is a small, rather neat place that serves as an entrance into the honeycomb-like bimoes beyond. The most interesting fact is what is housed beneath the administrative office, a secret room hidden behind a bookshelf that travels to a level below ground where the Ranger Armory exists. This specific area is strictly forbidden to outsiders of this Order although they have allowed Oracles on occasion to study and catalog their artifacts but only in their presence. The armory seals upon entry or exit and only Rangers have the key, so while rare and potentially unwise this can also serve as an impromptu prison for difficult subjects. Please note, the absence of a key does not make this place invulnerable to entry or exit, rather the fact that it is a 'secret' is its greatest defense of all.

The Desert Biome
It would seem almost redundant to have a desert biome well... within a desert. However, this biome is probably the most important one for the rangers to experience as it is akin to their home terrain. This area is controlled so people are not placed in harm's way during training and it is not unusual for Rangers to collect (or request a collection of) Sandworm eggs as well as other dangerous Wind Country carnivores that they allow to roam freely here just to add a potential chance of misfortune for those training here.
A large field covered with waist-high grass. This type of terrain can be found along the coastline of Wind Country where the climate is more temperate. The biome is speckled with the rare, occasional tree and lazy sloping hills. This is considered the calmest and possibly safest biome but the most challenging for a stealth user and hence a preferred setting for such. The lack of variants in terrain and the limited hiding places (being mostly the high grass) stealthy Rangers relish the challenge this biome offers.
An area of dense foliage, this is a place where one can easily hide. The darkness from the tree canopy and the thick brush underfoot make vision and travel difficult. This is an excellent place for combat training against surprise attacks, ambushes or against a stealthy opponent. Mastering the art of finding and surviving is paramount for a Ranger. Foreign wildlife can also be found here -- birds, small animals, some large carnivorous game as well as worthy opponents. It is rumored that the Rangers capture some mercenaries, nukeins and other petty criminals and set them loose in here so that they have something to hunt. It is just a rumor however, you will have to ask a real Ranger if you wish to know the truth.
A frozen wasteland that might remind some of Kirigakure. This is a place of perpetual cold, the area is nothing but rocks and ice and the elements alone are enough to risk one's life. Survival skills are put to the real test here as nature itself is your true enemy. With limited resources and a world in and of itself that attempts to reject all life, those that train in here are truly putting their lives in their hands. It is important to consider supplies and a method to seek and obtain assistance if you venture into here. The difficult terrain has taken a great numbers of lives in the past and just might take yours.
The rarest and most precious resource in Wind Country and it can be found here in abundance. It is said that this water was obtained from the Undersea beneath the Toraono Dojo. This is a large body of water that is approximately 100 feet deep and one mile in diameter. Some fight on the water, underneath, others test their stamina attempting to see how long they can hold their breath and still others just like to hang out near their own personal giant pool.
