Paladins are holy warriors that are dedicated to their gods and to bring
good to the world. The must remain good at all times, otherwise they fall from
grace and become a regular warrior.

Although they themselves are hearty fighters, they prefer to rally the
forces around them and lead them into battle. As a reward for their virtue
and chivalry, they are granted limited clerical powers, which includes the
ability to heal. Paladins gain to-hit and damage bonuses with wielding two-
handed swords.

Paladins receive a considerable XP bonus for slaying evil race beings, and an
immense XP penalty for slaying those of good alignment.

Although they are less skilled than a pure Warrior, they are by far the best
horsemen in the world. They have an innate bonus to all saving throws and always
detect evil and good. The gods grant Paladins the power to lay hands that heals
the target. As the Paladin gains level, the amount of healing increases.

With their innate Paladin auras, they are also able to bestow beneficial
effects on everyone in their group.

Once they reach their 50th level, Paladins are also able to Ascend and follow
the path of the Avenger or Lightbringer.

==Equipment usage==
