|The Gleeful Grognard|
I have a player that I am playing with that is playing a Paladin and is concerned that they won't be able to use Feint in combat because it uses the Deception skill.
Now, that is not the intent of Anathema, and we have convinced them of that. But I would still like to have the actual rules to back that up. So far all I can see is in Champion Code where it says that the Tenets are listed in order of importance.
I mean it is the intent if their god is against deception in general.
"You must act with honor, never taking advantage of others, lying, or cheating."
I would personally say feinting is borderline but entirely up to the player. It isn't called out in the examples, but it isn't exactly honourable either even if an argument of it being dishonourable could be just as easily rebuked.
I wouldn't if I were running/playing a paladin, but that would be a roleplaying choice. If a player were more interested in the mechanics of the class and not the RP thematics I would be more lenient on them than I would be on myself.
