Other times your best option is a heavy Tulwar. Here's hoping you can find a dagger in the dungeon).
For what it's worth, one of 4.2.3's changes is leaving off the Word of Recall from the starting kit if playing with the no recall option.

Since the starting kit is specified by class, it would be easy to leave off the food (or reduce its amount) for rangers.
