Paladin Orders

This is a non-exhaustive list of paladin orders in the Realms. Feel free to add Orders that are not yet listed here.

Rather than gaining levels as paladins throughout their career, the rare paladins of the High One are more likely to spend some time progressing in that class and then learn wizardry full-time.

Azuth's paladins cannot multiclass freely.

Field Guardians

Paladins of the Grain Goddess are rare. They value compassion as much as courage, and spend much time helping common folk in rural areas. They may multiclass freely as clerics, divine champions, and divine disciples.

Vigilant Eyes of the Deity

Paladins of the Watcher prefer to guard against evil or slay it outright rather than work to heal its damages. They seem rigid and uninterested in helping others.

They may multiclass freely as fighters, clerics, divine champions, and Knights-Errant.

Companions of the Noble Heart

The Companions of the Noble Heart are an aggressive order dedicated to seeking out and destroying those who value cruelty over mercy. As such, their greatest enemy are the church of Loviatar.

Noble Heart paladins may multiclass freely as fighters and divine champions.

Holy Warriors of Suffering

This holy order of warriors and paladins are dedicated to fighting monsters - and particularly fiends. Based out of a fortress in Tethyr, they have a long history of fighting crusades against evil (and sometimes amongst their own church).

In the modern age, most Holy Warriors are fighters and divine champions rather than paladins.

Order of the Golden Cup

The counterparts to the Noble Heart, the Golden Cup are devoted to the healing and defense of the innocent, the weak, the sick, and others who cannot protect themselves. They prefer to help than to crusade, but do not hesitate to fight for those they protect.

Golden Cup paladins may multiclass freely as clerics, divine disciples, and hierophants.

Order of the Lambent Rose

This order is very evangelical and, some Ilmateri think, mercenary. It offers service for just causes throughout Faerûn in exchange for various favors. The favor could be anything from simply supplying food and basic medicinal supplies, to building monasteries or even conversion. The order tends to operate in areas with little or no other Ilmateri presence.

Lambent Rose paladins may multiclass freely as fighters, clerics, and divine champions.

Knights of the Eternal Order

Paladins of the Lord of the Dead devote themselves to hunting and killing undead. Some develop as paladins for their entire career, others begin as paladins but leave that path, to progress as rangers and clerics.

They cannot multiclass freely.

Order of the Aster

Also known as the Soldiers of Light, the Order of the Aster are mostly known for defending shrines, temples, and other holy sites. Otherwise, they are well known for wandering the realms promoting the faith and doing good deeds in Lathander's name. Paladins of Lathander are known to be more conservative and by-the-book than clerics.

Paladins may multiclass freely as clerics, divine champions, divine disciples, hierophants, and Knights-Errant.

The Soul Forger has few paladins, but the dwarves who choose this path often act as champions of the entire dwarven pantheon, blending the virtues of all the dwarven gods.

They may multiclass freely as clerics, fighters, divine champions, and dwarven defenders.

Order of the Ruby Rose

Members of this order include paladins, bards, and fighters. Their primary mission is to guard Sunite temples and holy sites, and occasionally accompany clerics doing good works or questing for something important to the church. They are particularly adept at destroying undead.

They may multiclass freely as divine champions.

Order of the Golden Lion

Established in 1358 DR, members of this order guard temples of deities the Tormish had persecuted during the Time of Troubles. This act of aiding other faiths is called the Penance of Duty. As part of this, members have to fulfil the Debt of Dereliction by doing all their can to eliminate cults of Cyric and Bane, and the Debt of Destruction in which they must locate and record areas of dead/wild magic and help to repair the Weave.

Paladins are permitted to train and advance freely in one other area.

Knights of Samular

The knights of Samular are focused on the supremacy of Law and are famed for having brought order to the North.

They may multiclass freely as clerics, fighters, and divine champions.
