Great Little Guideline, you truly capture what it means to be a True Paladin.I often find my self coming back to this thread when I need to find motivation to once again wield the light(play my Paladin).

Uh ? No, a Paladin is a warrior that fights in the name of a deity of good alignment. The law cannot be evil if it is written by a good god. That is the law Paladins obey.
And the judicial branch, while seperate from the legislative branch, is usually tasked with enforcing the legislative branch's decision as far as law making goes. So I don't really see how you can say "Paladins are about Justice, not law".
Anyway, you're confused about what Paladins adhere to, it's not the law code of men. Paladins are first and foremost warriors for a god.

Being a Paladin requires one of two things:
1) Being absolutely Self-righteous
2) Having a talking chandelier locked up in your basement
Option #1 allows sociopaths to operate as Paladins and murder people as they please, assuming they feel no guilt. See the Scarlet Crusade/Onslaught.
While I admire and respect your adamance in upholding your virtues and the ways of the Paladin, not all of us share your beliefs.
I am a Blood Knight. While you devoted your life and efforts to be blessed with the light, we kidnapped a god, chained it up in our basement and siphoned his sweet, delicious light for whatever the hell we want to use it for. Though, I still use the light to heal my wounded brethren (largely because I want to make sure they live long enough to kill all humans).
Still like this thread.
I am a Blood Knight. While you devoted your life and efforts to be blessed with the Light we were allowed to believe we kidnapped a powerful being of the Light, carried it to our capital as Velen and the Naaru planned, and although we believed we were stealing the Light from it the Naaru actually allowed this to happen to bring about the salvation of our people.
Fixed that for ya.
Blood Knights were a fun idea and all, but not nearly as "dark" as some like to believe. Post Sunwell Blood Knights are much like traditional Paladins.
