Tweaking Yesterday's Paladin Variant

Thinking about it more, the Paladin in my variants yesterday didn't seem sufficiently different from the normal cleric. I've tweaked it to look like this:

Paladin (Cleric Variant). The Paladin is like a Cleric in every respect except as follows. In weaponry they are limited to swords (one or two-handed), daggers and lances. They turn undead as a cleric one level lower (i.e., at first level they cannot turn at all), but they are entitled to one more first-level Cleric spell per day than normal Clerics, which they receive at first level. The Paladin must be Lawful in alignment.


  1. This is reprehensible! A blatant attempt of getting a reaction by inflammatory changes! This will not do! I blame the fluoride in the water for posts like this!

  2. I like this one too! I might add a healing touch ability that they can use in place of a spell (ala 3rd edition) but yes, I like this.

    1. Thanks for the suggestion -- that's a good idea.
