Seems to me a Paladin is whatever they want to be as long as they can keep their faith in the Light.

Whatever "Light" they maintain their faith in.

Being a Paladin is not about Law... not about Light... sometimes not even about Good. For Laws can sometimes be written by evil hands, the gifts of the Light can be twisted to obey those full of arrogance and malice, and even what is believed to be Good can be a mask for the corrupt to work their plots unseen.

It is about Justice, about protecting the weak, uplifting the downfallen, punishing the wicked. Justice above all - that is the code of the 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.

So evil magic "read necromancy ~=~ Necro" is okay as long as it's used to bring Paladin things back from the dead? Hypocrisy at it's finest.

I am a Bloodknight. I still view us as "darker" paladins even though the end of BC and WoD seem to try to make us more like "normal" paladins.

They corrupt and slaughter our people and we fall back. They corrupt entire worlds and we fall back. Not again. The line must be drawn here! This far, no further! And *I* will make them pay for what they've done!

Watch out, pallies. This thread is so full of self-love you're all gonna be hairy and blind soon. Don't your laws say something about that too?

JK, you guys are alright. Pretty in pink and whatnot.

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.
