Paladin Compendium


The Paladin Compendium is a collection of 25 uniquely crafted subclass options for the Paladin Player Class for the 5th edition of the world’s greatest roleplaying game within a Forgotten Realms setting. The archetypes included in this supplement are flavored after 25 Gods and Goddesses from the realms that embody Lawful Good/Neutral/Evil alignments.


The intent is to provide Paladin players more uniquely flavored and tailored options for roleplaying, combat, and exploration, centered on their chosen God or Goddess. A further goal of the product was to provide such options in a manner that fit snugly within the established lore and mythos of the Forgotten Realms as a method to increase a player’s sense of immersion.


This product proved to be a particularly fun addition to official modules such as The Curse of Strahd and Baldur’s Gate: Descent into Avernus, where the Paladin class tends to shine. However, make no mistake this supplement is fun and balanced for any table set within the Forgotten Realms. I hope you have as much fun playing these Paladin’s as I had creating them.

This is a phenomenal supplement. The description doesn't do justice to the astounding creativity it must have taken to come up with these 25 different subclasses that inventively take the usual stereotypes of paladins and turn them on their head. Obviously this is a fantastic resource for players but I think it would be even more useful for a DM as there are a number of evil options such as the Oath of the Chromatic Dragon that would make for awesome servants to some BBEG (Or even the BBEG him/herself!).

Love this product! Gives such a great variety of Paladins from lawful evil to lawful good. The artwork on each page compliments the work well. Love it!

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
