The Knight!

Knights, samurai, cavaliers, templars and paladins make mighty allies, dangerous foes and must heed their vows to the letter. These warriors of faith must stay unwavering in their oaths, lest they invite disaster upon themselves and to those who travel with them.”

As the inaugural article for the new and polished, I wrote up a paladin class for DCC.

This has been bumping around in my brainbox for about a year now, with the main question being “how to make the paladin be something besides a guy with lay on hands and a deed die”. After a bunch of mulling it over, old cartoons and a very fruitful discussion with Antti, this is what I came up with.

The class is modeled after both the Arthurian knights and the 12 paladins of Charlemagne, with a good bit of pop-cult and modern modification to the legends. I quite like it, I hope you do too.
