"The way of the Paladin:
To Learn
To Seek
To Do"

"The way of the Paladin is to seek to know that which truly is. The Paladin strives to learn his own inner nature and that of others. The Paladin does whatever needs to be done to bring light to the world. Not for glory, not for gain, the Paladin becomes a Paladin because it is his will." (Rakeesh)

A Paladin is a person of Honor. The more good deeds one accomplishes, the more abilities they have at their command - the most noticeable being a blue flame surrounding the blade of their weapon (which is traditionally a sword).

BackgroundEdit

The Paladin is the Goody-Two-Shoes of champions and the Dudley-Do-Right of defenders. This job is clearly not for everyone. If one is willing to be bold for no gold, risk their name without acclaim and campaign without gain, this could be the occupation for their emulation. A Paladin is a hero's hero (and he can have him). Frankly, Paladins constantly become involved in extremely dangerous quests like slaying Dragons, and rarely survive long enough (or earn enough) to purchase the all-important F.A.C.S. pamphlets.[1]

AbilitiesEdit

The Paladin has special abilities and spells. Some of these are automatic; they occur from the natural radiant goodness of the Paladin. Thus, the Paladin can Sense Danger (the third ability a Paladin gains) whenever it is present in the area.

Other abilities are more like spells, and must be consciously summoned from within by the Paladin's wishes.

As a Paladin attains Honor, he gains new abilities by his good nature. Paladin spells do not draw upon magical ability. Instead they use the Paladin's natural energy, thus drawing upon to charge the spell.

Also, if a Paladin gains the Heal ability (at 50 Paladin points) in Quest for Glory 3, he also gets 5 to his magic score and becomes able to learn spells, like Lightning Ball in Quest for Glory 3 and Glide, Frost Bite, and Aura in Quest for Glory 4.

Awe
Awe
The Awe spell lowers the attacker's morale, causing most opponents to flee or retreat. Only the fiercest of foes can resist this charm. This is the most powerful ability a Paladin can gain, and only the most honorable will ever attain it.
DestroyUndead
Destroy Undead
The Destroy Undead spell emits a sphere of light, directly damaging undead creatures.
Heal
Heal
This Paladin spell can be used on your Hero or an ally during combat. It draws upon Stamina, with the amount of healing proportional to the current Stamina value. This is the second ability a Paladin gains.
HolyStrength
Holy Strength
Holy Strength augments the Paladin's , increasing it proportionally to the current amount of Stamina points. This can greatly increase the Paladin's combat skill. Only a very honorable Paladin will achieve this ability.
HonorShield
Honor Shield
The Honor Shield creates a magical field which protects the Paladin from damage by the opponent's weapon. When invoked, it adds directly to your Hero's skill. This is the fourth ability a Paladin gains.
MagicWard
Magic Ward
The Magic Ward creates a barrier preventing magical offensive spells from affecting the Paladin. This spell must be invoked by the Paladin when in the presence of a Spellcaster or a magical trap. Each magical attack will lower the Paladin's Stamina while the Magic Ward is active.
PaladinSword
Paladin Sword
This flaming sword is an automatic ability for Paladins. When a Paladin Sword is wielded in battle by a character with this skill, it is surrounded by a field of magical flame that increases the damage inflicted by the sword. This is the first ability a Paladin gains.
Peace
Peace
The Paladin Peace spell relaxes everyone in the area. This effect prevents most opponents from attacking unless they are attacked or once the effect wears off. This ability is gained by a Paladin with high Honor. However, attacking beings under the influence of this spell is a dishonorable act.
SenseAura
Sense Aura
When a Paladin invokes Sense Aura on a person, he will receive a general impression of that person's feelings and thoughts. Though this ability requires very high Honor, it allows the Paladin to determine the trustworthiness of others.[2]

Other Definitions of a PaladinEdit

"The way of the Paladin is very difficult and lonely at times, for you must trust your own heart to know what is right, and not the judgment of others".  (Rakeesh)

"A Paladin must always listen not to others, but to his heart. Only by listening to his heart can the Paladin know what is right".  (Rakeesh)

"A Paladin travels where his consciense leads,

quietly helping others with their needs.

Not for glory, neither then for gain, good alone shall be the judge he heeds." (Omar)

"A Paladin goes whereever there is need, and obeys only true justice and goodnesss (JaA'far)

"A Paladin is one who lives with honor and courage throughout life". (Aziza )

Behind the scenesEdit

The Hero can become a Paladin at the end of QFG2 (all classes) and QFG3 (fighter only)

In QFG2 the hero is judged by his choices during the game. For this to happen, there are three factors determined by the end of the game:

  1. 75 Honor Points or more
  2. Gain Paladin Points out of 34 possible.
  3. Not doing one of the following dishonorable acts
Despite the common misbelief, using the X-Ray Glassess to peep at Zayishah changing clothes does not prevent the Hero from becoming a Paladin.

In QFG3, the rules for becoming a Paladin appear to be much less strict than in QFG2: once the fighter manages to arrange the peace conference between the Simbani and the Leopardmen, he automatically becomes a Paladin, even if he made any dishonorable deeds which do not result in death, like flirting with Jana or not helping Yesufu during the competition (in the latter case, the fighter must win the competition in order to continue the game). On the other hand, committing dishonorable deeds for any type of character may result in instant death, for instance: killing Manu, not helping Yesufu plus losing the competition, attempting to kill the Laibon or the chief of the Leopardmen while breaking into their huts.
