The book of exalted deeds, detailing the behaviour of 'exalted' characters is not a requirement for being a Paladin. Exalted is basically a "super good" alignment. Lawful Good covers a wide range of alignments. It is a broad category. Not everyone will consider killing evil people, or killing in self defence to be a non good act, and a Paladin doesn't have ...

However there are only 4 good reasons to use a polearm for any class: Polearm Momentum for control. You should not have the 15 Dex for this, but even so, you do not have enough pushing and sliding powers. ...

Yes, you can add a property to the weapon from any bonus, assuming it is already magical. The main restriction here is stated in your question: If the weapon is not magical, at least a +1 enhancement bonus must be added before any other properties can be added. This implies that any of the +1 bonuses could be converted to a property, except in the ...

You should read up on Hellknights more. They are the epitome of law - but there are LE, LN, and LG Hellknights. To quote, Regardless of their severity, Hellknights are not an evil group. Although there are doubtlessly numerous evil members—particularly among the upper echelons of power—the majority of the orders are impartial arbiters and enforcers of ...
