Hospitaler Paladin or Crypt Breaker Alchemist for Carrion?


Carrion Crown


In a three man party so far consisting of a Human Inquisitor and Dhampir Hungry Ghost Monk, what would you recommend for the third man; A Human Hospitaler Paladin, or a Human Crypt Breaker Alchemist?

We'll be starting Carrion Crown in a couple of weeks, and wanted to try to cover bases while still remaining true to the feel of the campaign.

Thoughts?

The alchemist will fit the best. Alot of people (me included) want to play paladins in CC because they are practically guaranteed to be able to use all of their class abilities, but the game is hard on them RP-wise. You will not regret being an alchemist.

What do you mean? (assuming by RP-wise you mean "roleplay wise") Are they penalized for being super holy, or tempted to break faith?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Basically yes. There are a fair number of morally ambiguous situations, or ones involving choices between lesser evils. While the adventure paths certainly allow for this possibility, it is more restrictive, roleplaying and options wise, to play a "kill all the evil all the time!" paladin. Though the powers are certainly useful.
