I could use a hand on this one. I've never been really interested in the creation of a Paladin, as I was seeing one mostly being a "stick in the mud". After reading the answer to this question, I'm considering the creation of a Dwarf Paladin of Torag.
This is my first time creating a Defender and a Paladin: is this combination any good?
Ideally, I want him to be able to keep as many enemies as possible unable to reach the other party members. The Prestige class Stalwart Defender seems to serve this purpose.
My question is:
- Which stats should I max?
- Which feats should I get?
to build an efficient Defender, a shield for his allies?
Bob was a member of the church of Torag. He was sent on an expedition to retrieve an ancient artifact of the Dwarves, but something went wrong. He had to choose between bringing back the artifact or saving his team, and did the second. In punition, he was banished by a higher member of the church and has to do something to honor Torag and regain his credibility.
Paladin is mainly for the fluff, but the features of healing and fighting the undead are appreciable advantages. I suppose it's not as optimized as a Fighter, but the two points previously mentioned would be great.
The campaign I'm currently engaged in will end probably around level 12. At the moment, we're close to level 4.
The campaign has Kingmaker aspects, taking place in the Rost. I don't know the name though.
The other players are: 2 knight, 1 wizard/healer, 1 priest/healer, 1 sorcerer/diplomat, 1 ranger and 1 monk.
