I do. Lawful at that.

It's a goddamn nightmare, there's innocents in peril and all we're doing is running in circles. Every little thing that seems to be a clue to solving that conundrum ends up being a dead end. I have no idea what the DM wants us to do.

On top of that the rest of the party seems pretty damn murder-prone. Good luck convincing the priest to listen to you about the wrongfully convicted "witches" when first thing that happens is a crossbow shot from our ranger. Not to mention despite having 17 Cha I keep rolling 2-8 on social skills. My own lack of them as a player is not helping. At least I got over being infatuated with our cute DM

And I can't just murder peasants to save some random women, but I can't let those women get murdered either!

I went from a cheerful, smiling, gay in both senses of the word elven paladin to pic related in like two or three sessions.

That's why I usually play reserved snipers or rogues.

Because women like to fantasise about emotions, as it is entertaining for them, the same way men like to fantasise about pretend combat or being a hero - both conform to the fundamental psychological archetypes of a man as a performer and doer and woman as an object of desire and focus for attention.

For most men, emotional engagement seems to be a matter of real investment, and violence or power as a causal everyday thing, whereas women treat emotions as everyday things and violence as a serious matter that upsets those emotions. Again, roots of this are evolutionary in psychology of humans, but they do not constitute a serious barrier to imagination and in a right setting, you can easily have female players do combat well or male players roleplay a romance with an NPC.

And this, kids, is why you smite first and detect evil later. If at all.

The sheer existence of half-orcs points to the failure of humans around in exterminating these beasts. Humanity will never be secure until those filthy monsters are put down and stopped from violating any more of humans.

Does a paladin fall if he commits cannibalism? Because extreme hunger, not for fun or curiosity.

Honestly? It's made me ashamed that I can't stop being edgy. I just want to really, truly try to be a lawful good paladin once, but it doesn't ever work out that way. Either the setting is too morally gray or my own tendencies creep in.

Damnit /tg/ you make me want to be a good person, and that's pretty fucking sad coming from a 4chan board

What things do you internally scream about, but know it's too trivial to make a fuss about?

>Players that throw their dice like it's got the plague.
It's their own dice, but it still bothers me seeing such mistreatment.

Christ almighty I'm enjoying playing a paladin but I swaer it's like every gm thinks they come up with masterful shakeups of the orc baby situation.

You fucking dumbass, you specifically told them not to metagame and the told them about these dreams.

They think telling the other party members about it is metagaming because why the fuck else would you mention the two so closely together, so now they'll refuse to unti you tell them it isn't metagaming to fucking discuss it.

You've literally made the associate meta gaming with the specific information from the dream.

My god this must be bait, no on is this stupid.

I ask the gm if there is room enough to charge
If so I charging smite the fucker for triple the normal smite damage(which considering he's a level 12 paladin is an extra 36 damage.

Also I ask if the villain has physically or magically attacked me recently

If yes, multiply said damage(spiked gauntlet because even Paladins like to cast FIST) by 4 because of my enchanted from the god of retribution and luck.

If he survives taking 164(on average) holy damage spiked gauntlet to the face, let the true battle begin.

Speaking hypothetically, if I were to reserect a dead dwarven goddess who turned out to be on good terms with other good gods, and now wants me to spread her good news if her reserection.

Up until this point I worshipped was the sun, and the concept of glorious sunlight, but now I have a dwarven goddess, who represents much of what I believe, and so far as I can tell genuinely is a good goddess.

So I bring this question to the council, as it troubles me greatly.
