Heh. Paladins don't lie out of greed or selfishness though. They generally only lie to protect the innocent.

Dante seems to be in very good spirits for somebody who just became an assasination target.

"Hich..."
Could be an another class... Because not lying is part of not acting with honor. But you are right about the gm. (But In this world,there not just one. Of Gosh... Imagine a really bad gm. They could be... What happen when two adventure groups fight each other ?does their dm fight also?

I find that odd. Many paladins would consider preserving the honor of another to be more important than telling the truth, depending on the circumstances.

Most paladins would not disclose that lord Goodfather died while hanging himself from a doorknob to get off. Usually, they would say he died in an accident. This only really works for personal faults, not crimes.

You play with a better class of paladins than I do, most i've met take the calling to mean they can murder steal victimize and torture whoever they want and get away with it because their god told them to.

They should be turned into fighters without bonus feats (and tower shield proficiency) for that.

While certain acts can be justified by the "It's part of my faith" argument. Most of the things you have listed fall into a category of things that need a bit more than that.

A paladin of the god of Death would have no qualms with killing people, but, their code of honor still requires that the person deserve it first.

Torture can only be justified under the most extreme circumstances, and even then, it should require them to think really hard, and act conflicted about it.

Taking advantage of the weak is right out. There is no way to justify that under the standard Paladin code of honor.

This is of course, assuming that we are talking about the typical Lawful Good paladin.

DUST - the only definition I can find is angel dust, AKA PCP.
VWP means either "Very Well Played" or "Very Well Put"
