    Things you hate that players do in RPGs (pet peeves)

    Personally for me, I hate the following. 1. People who clown around too much, especially in serious situations. 2. People asking me what’s my class and abilities in game. ( learn what I am and what I do in game....that is, if I so choose to show or tell you, either way, let’s role play it out )...

    A Paladin’s obituary

    To begin this, I would first like to say that I am unfamiliar to you all, being that I am new to these forums and know not if this would be the place for such things, thus, please forgive my ignorance in this. Now with that said, I continue on..... I wish to speak of a character that has passed...

    A question: What's the difference between Paladins and Clerics? (D&D5e or just all D&D in general )

    Something I was wondering, and have been asked about, "What is the difference between the Paladin and a Cleric?" A Life Domain Cleric can wear Heavy Armor and use Simple Weapons. So they can still wade into battle to heal and support the frontline fighters. What makes a heavy-armored Cleric...

    The Paladin Challenge

    Design the most outrageous scenario you can for a way a Palladin could behave without losing their powers. WITHOUT violating a fairly strict interpretation of BOTH Lawful and Good. I'll give it a start: Owning, and Renting Out, Slaves: In a land where Slavery is legal, what's a Paladin to do...

    This is the thread to create two kinds of Aligment Shift AU characters - Heroic AU versions of Villain characters, and Villain versions of Hero characters. Inspired from this thread The goddamn Batman...as an antagonist...

    [5e] So how does the Paladin compare to the Fighter/Ranger/Barbarian

    For those who have the book, which is the strongest melee class in combat: Paladin, Fighter, Ranger or Barbarian? Furthermore, how do they all compare with each other, i.e. how does the Barbarian compare to the Fighter in terms of combat power? Finally, is it true the Paladin can alphastrike...

    [Discussion] The Point of Paladins

    I'll skip the prelude and get to the point (I'll release a prequel in like 10 years that explains how I got here): I was wondering what the point of the paladin is when we have Clerics. In my eyes, paladins and clerics are both: Heavily armoured Divine casters Warriors of the church I...

    Paladins in name only

    There is this certain archetype of character, or rather player, which seems to pop up all to frequently, the paladin in name only. So, a player makes a paladin as a character in a vaguely D&D-esque setting. The type usually associated with being honorable, standing up for justice, defending...

    [4E] Paladins

    I'm new to 4E, been a 3E and Pathfinder player a long while. I'm looking to play a paladin in a campaign coming up soon. Can someone give me a primer on what abilities work off of each other? Not really looking for a min-max build, just something that works reasonably. (Or my options...

    Interesting ways to flesh out Paladins?

    Paladins are often shown to be the stereotypical slayers of evil, while being humourless, cold-hearted, rigid, and unwilling to make any sort of compromise or tolerate any sort of failings on the part of their companions or other people around them. Alternately, they are incredibly naive idiots...

    What is a paladin to you?

    So, this morning I was thinking about a discussion that occurs around here from time to time, where we talked about which fictional characters would be paladins. And I couldn't find the thread, but they all follow a similar trajectory. Somebody usually names Superman right away and Captain...

    Character Creation Etiquette?

    My group mixes up the games we play, but at heart I'm a D&D 3.5 player, it was my first and will always be my favorite. I make a point not to complain about playing other games (after all, I DO enjoy playing them all, just not as much.), but I'm always super psyched to go back to D&D. I'm also...

    This thread is fluffy and tastes like Paladins...

    This week I will begin playing my first Paladin, and while I have a fair idea of how I will play the character, I thought I'd start a thread for general ideas to inspire the players of Paladins. Pictures, quotes, song lyrics, pointing out that a certain character is a lot like a cross-genre...

    The Legacy of [Lawful Stupid]!

    Ah, ye' old Lawful Good. So poorly abused by many players (especially Paladins) as an excuse to shaft the party and act like an ass. It gave birth to term who know today as Lawful Stupid. But was it Stupid? Due to 4E defanging the alignment system Lawful Good doesn't carry the same impact it...

    Sneaky Paladin, D&D 3.5

Now Im thinking of the Code the paladin follows and wehter the use of sneak and hide might violate the code. If...

    [4e] 18/14 or 16/16

    So, pretty much as the title says - assuming the standard array and the Human's single +2, am I better off with 16 in my main and my secondary attributes, or 18 in the main and 14 in the secondary? The character is a paladin, taking the Ardent options from Complete Divine. The primary is...

    Paladins who don't suck

    Need some help here. Long standing argument with my wife over the value of the Paladin-type character. She argues that all paladin-types in literature/movies are incompetent and boring. In her words, paladins are "goody-goody whiney-bitch wusses" and evil is always much more interesting...

    Loss of Paladinhood...?

    Here's a question that came up between older gamers in a conversation, concerning a sideplot one was planning for the party's paladin. The game in question is 2E: Skills and Powers Forgotten Realms; but I imagine the answer would be the same for any edition: Would a Paladin, suffering from...

    [4e] So...no more Detect Evil?

    I was doing a little plotting and started accounting for the Paladin's Detect Evil before I realized...it's gone, as an at-will class ability, anyway. Is it a ritual now, or...anything? Is it in Divine Power? I haven't decided how I feel about this. It certainly saves me a little work (see...
