Class feats[edit]

Level 1[edit]

  • Aura of Good (passive): Grants +1 bonus to AC and +1 bonus to saving throws to all characters within range.
  • Religious Lore (passive): This feat grants represents your knowledge of religion. This feat is received once for every paladin level.
  • Smite Evil (active): When activated, this feat triggers a special melee attack against Evil creatures. The Paladin adds his/her Charisma modifier x 2 (if any) to his/her attack roll and deals extra damage based on his/her paladin level. The extra damage done is 7+3*level. For instance, a 6th level paladin does 7+(3*6) (or 25) extra damage on a successful smite. If the paladin accidentally smites a creature that is not evil, or is not in range, the smite has no effect, but the ability is still used up. Paladins get one base use of this ability at level one, plus one more at level five and every five levels after 5th (at 10th, 15th and 20th, for a maximum of 5 uses). Smite Evil recharges at a rate of 1 every 90 seconds, and all uses return after any rest period.

Level 2[edit]

Level 3[edit]

Level 4[edit]

  • Gain the ability to cast Paladin spells. Your effective caster level is equal to your Paladin level, contrary to PnP (thus, the starting duration for a Bless spell is 4 minutes).
  • Turn Undead (active and passive): This feat allows the character to turn or at higher levels destroy undead creatures. The character can do this (3 + their charisma modifier) times per day. While turning undead is an active skill, this feat is passive as it adds to the total amount of turns per day. While enhancements from both Cleric and Paladin stack, as far as number and power of turns, the base number of turns do not stack with each other.

  • Smite evil (active): Paladins can use this ability one additional time per rest period. You can now Smite evil 2 times per rest. Smite evil also recharges at a rate of 1 every 90 seconds.

Level 6[edit]

  • Remove Disease (active): At 6th level, a paladin can produce a remove disease effect, as the spell, once per rest period. It can use this ability one additional time per rest period for every three levels after 6th (twice per rest at 9th level).

Level 9[edit]

Level 10[edit]

  • Smite evil (active): Paladins can use this ability one additional time per rest period. You can now Smite evil 3 times per rest. Smite evil also recharges at a rate of 1 every 90 seconds.
