Description: Paladins take their adventures seriously, and even a mundane mission is, in the heart of the paladin, a personal test - an opportunity to demonstrate bravery, to learn tactics, and to do good in the world. Divine power protects these warriors of virtue, warding off harm, protecting them from disease, healing them and their allies, and guarding against fear. Divine power also guides their sword arms, making them among the most effective warriors against undead and evil outsiders. Many of the paladin's special abilities also benefit from a high Charisma score.
Alignment restrictions: lawful good only
Hit die: d10
Base attack bonus: +1/level
|1st level spells||2nd level spells||3rd level spells||4th level spells|
Note: The spells Protection from good and Circle of Protection vs Good have been removed from Edonite Paladins. Protection from Evil and Circle of Protection vs Evil remain. Restoration has been added to the level four spellbook.
Paladins receive bonus spells based on their wisdom ability modifier. A paladin with wisdom 11 has a modifier of 0 and gets no bonus spells, so level 1 spells won't become available until class level 6. A paladin with wisdom 12 or higher will receive bonus level 1 spells starting at class level 4. Wisdom 14 or higher will grant bonus level 2 spells starting at class level 8, and so on.

Epic paladin level progressionEdit
Prestige class tipsEdit
- The Divine Champion prestige class improves upon the paladin's already considerable melee and defensive abilities.
Types of PaladinsEdit
- Improved critical (whip) can be taken as epic paladin bonus feat (most likely a bug).
- A single level of paladin is used in some charisma-based bard (this is, however, impossible without an alignment change) and sorcerer character builds. In addition to improving all saving throws with divine grace, the paladin's weapon and armor proficiencies can be helpful. Sorcerers sometimes take a level in paladin very late in order to maximize the discipline skill as it is a cross class skill for sorcerers. (Maximizing disciple skill is a common practice in character building which allows the player to decrease the likelyhood of being victim of knockdown during combat.)
