what is your opinion on paladins that don't fall under lawful good? Do you think it's possible? would the class be fundamentally different, should they fall under neutral good or chaotic good?
My opinion? They are brothers and sisters who can offer a different perspective. It’s very possible. And yes, there would be differences, in philosophy, action, and methodology, but goal remains the same. Good triumphing while evil is cast down forever. And if that is impossible, then for the battle to be fought for the sake of others.
I am a Lawful Good traditionalist, but anything meant to last and grow needs new blood and soil to prosper in, which means alternatives given the opportunity to join. I am comfortable with my Oath of Devotion, and my adherence to virtue ethics, but I would rather they be tested to ensure they really are the right path by having equally benevolent choices for new paladins to undertake.
