Did you call it right? Sure! It's your job to bend the rules or those you don't agree with to make it fun and enjoyable and reward clever tactics. Did you do precisely what the written rules dictate? No. Here is why: Divine Sense Until the end of your next turn, you know the location of any.....not behind total cover. You know the type of being ...

Yes, Divine Sense would counter Mirror Image for the paladin only. He can't even pass on the information to others as he would have to rely on sight to pass the information on. As far as the paladin is concerned, he could pinpoint it with "It's the one that sounds like chalk on a blackboard." or "It's the one that smells of a summer night after a brief ...

Yes The description of mirror image specifies that: A creature is unaffected by this spell if it can’t see, if it relies on senses other than sight, such as blindsight, or if it can perceive illusions as false, as with truesight. I would say that this also holds for divine sense. Furthermore, the goal of divine sense is to allow a paladin to detect ...

No Divine sense says: As an action, you can open your awareness to detect such forces. Until the end of your next turn, you know the location of any celestial, fiend, or undead within 60 feet of you that is not behind total cover. And Mirror Image says: Three illusory duplicates of yourself appear in your space. Until the spell ends, ...

One answer to this question I have seen implemented is that the gods will begrudgingly accept prayers at "foreign" shrines and altars, since there are simply too many deities to have a dedicated altar for every deity in the Forgotten Realms in every city's temple, or even in a temple to begin with! So your dwarven paladin would still give prayers to Haela, ...

In all my reading of Realms material over the years, I've never seen the “Roman” approach to other pantheons practiced or even referenced. Other pantheons are generally acknowledged as real, just foreign—a natural effect of living in a world where the individual gods regularly and undeniably manifest in person. Instead, what you tend to see mentioned while ...

Absolutely. The trigger for Sentinel is "When a creature within 5 feet of you makes an attack against a creature other than you". An attack is rolling a d20 to overcome AC - if someone does that then you can thump them. The reason for making the attack is irrelevant; its the fact of it that matters. Sentinel does not care if the attack was made as a result ...

Yes, the attack being caused by Sanctuary will not prevent it from triggering Sentinel. You've already quoted the important rule: When a creature within 5 feet of you makes an attack against a creature other than you (and that target doesn't have this feat) you can use your reaction to make a melee weapon attack against the attacking creature. There's ...

A paladin that takes a move action to use the special ability detect evil can focus either on a creature to get 3-rounds-worth of detect evil information about that creature or on an object to get 3-rounds-worth of detect evil information about that object.1 While the game usually makes no distinction between a creature and gear it attends, this is a rare ...

Items and equipment will only "ping" on Detect Alignment spells if they have a special aura that says so. Like a Nine Lives Stealer. has the power to draw the life force from an opponent. It can do this nine times before the ability is lost. At that point, the sword becomes a simple +2 longsword (with a faint evil aura). But even so, only after it has ...

It was not updated with the errata It is really hard to prove a negative, but the most recent official document (which insider is not) states that it was changed to no action. So the Insider is wrong, and a hybrid Paladin|Fighter makes sense now.
