We'll be playing our next session of Brian's Pathfinder game next Sunday. At the end of the last session, there were a few questions by the other players about how I was playing my Paladin.
Specifically, when we were given our offer of employment by the sage, in a brothel, the sage mentioned that he had paid for the room for the night, and any of us that wished could stay. My PC was the only one who did. Of course, while he was enjoying himself, he also used the opportunity to gather information from the lovely ladies there.
What can I say, I'm modeling his personality on Elwood Blues and Johnny Cash, and he's a Paladin of Myrlund, who is a fantasy Cowboy. It seemed to be an action perfectly in character, and Brian agreed with my logic.
Now, this is not a post to get into the inherent morality or ethicality of prostitution. What it is a post about is to show that one can be a Paladin without being a stick-in-the-mud, or an overzealous moron. The last thing I want to do in a game is play Lawful Stupid and ruin everyone else's fun by forcing them to play along to some overly restrictive moral code.
Anyway, here's a good post I found today about how Paladins should really be played, found via the Hitting Dirtside blog.
