I was wondering something.

Hi, I am new to this game and I was wondering how come there aren't any Ranged Classes listed in the Classes?

All Estiah fights take place at range.  Or close in.  Either way.

Basically the class descriptions are for flavor.  So they don't "mean" anything.  You could think of any "sorcery" class as the ranged class.  If you want to.  Whatever makes you happy.  You could say their all chocolatiers for all that it matters.
slalderma / slickal / rebelscum / sukelywalker / badmotivator
berzerker / pyro / hierarch / deathknight / warden
Slyguy: Shortdeck is the answer to everything.

I was thinking more along the lines of a Ranger or an Archer or Sniper, classes that attack enemies from a distance.

Estiah combat has no concept of range in the way that you are thinking.  While charms exist that imply ranged combat (Telperion Crossbow, Barbed Throwing Axe, etc), they are mostly for flavor as no distinction is made between how the engine handles a crossbow and a sword.

Estiah 2 (heres a beta screenshot) will pay attention to player placement for aoe effects, but aside from some clever dungeon fights it probably wont worry about range in that way either.  Though its pretty early for me to say that with any kind of certainty.
Everythings easier in pseudocode!

According to the story, the lands of Estiah are affected by the terrible Curse that makes the use of weapons, spells and armors impossible. And Charms are a (temporary) workaround to the Curse.

so yes we don't have any weapon.. -.-a
so every class basically played in range ^^
