1. Must have a Deity in Deity field.
2. Multiclassing Restriction:
The following table lists other known holy orders of paladins, the
deity they hold as a patron, and the character classes open to paladins
of that order for the purpose of multiclassing freely (orders of
paladins that do not allow multiclassing freely, such as the Swords of
the High One -paladins of Azuth- are not listed.) Some deities have more
than one associated order of paladins; these are listed sequentially.
Not all paladins have to be associated with an order, but only those
that are part of an order can multiclass freely. Other lawful good,
lawful neutral, and neutral good deities that are not listed here can
have paladins, but there are no known paladin orders for those faiths
(in effect, paladins of those faiths are uncommon enough that rarely are
there enough to band together and form an order). To play an actual
member of any official order requires DM approval: these are simply multi-class guidelines.
Paladins of other gods may not multi-class back and forth between
Paladin and any other class.
