Protect the innocent and uphold the law - these are the basic tenets and the core definition of a paladin, one of the hardest character classes to role-play, as they follow a straight and all-too-narrow path in the course of their adventuring lives. Defending truth and justice against the endless attempts of evil to subvert or destroy them, the paladin stands at the gate, holding the bridge… and none shall pass.
With the help of this sourcebook, any player choosing the paladin class will find many alternatives and options expanding his range of abilities. Prestige classes offer paladins roads that further explore their divine inspiration and absolute dedication to their cause. New feats will hone the paladin's fighting prowess, as well as give him new ways to use his divine abilities. New weapons, armour and equipment give any paladin more tools with which to battle evil, while he can learn new tactics to exploit the strength of his faith, his sword arm and his mission. The paladin's sacred tools are also given more detail: from options for his faithful mount to the power of holy weapons that unlock that power only for a noble heart.
