paladins

So where do the adventuring paladins come from in a RPG?

In NPCs, the only paladin we see become one is directly, divinely appointed.  But that would throw most games off. (Besides, he's an NPC.0:)

And in Order of the Stick, though they even know they are in a game, the paladins who've taken center stage have belonged to an order with a mission.  (And the far-faring paladin is one they send on missions.)

Even in Rusty and Co., Madeline the Paladin goes on missions from some kind of church -- since Derek the Cleric gives her prophecies to direct her.

The random adventurer paladin would really interesting to world-build, even if possible.

  • not quite normal NaNoWriMo

    So I have concluded my NaNoWri adventure. Both stories are complete for a total of 35,154 words. One small whoot.

  • NaNoWriMo news

    The first novella's first draft is done. At 21,400 words. Hmm. I see a small problem if the second one turns out the same, even not taking the time…

  • NaNoWriMo

    Going sluggishly. Did write something every day, so there is hope in sight.
