Well, I guess you can flank while invisible...

But do two weirds make a wight?

Hmmm... Perhaps, this may be a question best suited for the PFS?

Dear <Poster. Name. Here.>,

Everything you say and everything you think is wrong. I disagree with you about these rules. Please stop saying wrong things, and have a wonderful day.

Sincerely,

Kobold Cleaver

P.S. You are a bad person for believing these things, and you are incorrect about paladins in a way that makes you even more bad.

Sczarni

That's a little harsh.

At least (he? she? it?) was willing to ask the hard questions that even we regulars are afraid to ask.

It shows good character.

Even if (they?) were wrong in (their?) conclusions.

Does anyone else hear the sound of one hand clapping?

Maybe we should FAQ this 'til the cows come home.

I think Gary Larson gave the last word on this, but I cannot find the cartoon.

Well I'm the OP. No idea what happened lol. This is what I wanted to know:

If there were a Paladin standing directly next to the rogue, on the side of the cleric, would he get flanking with the fighter?

No. He would not. To get diagonal flanking , the two flankers must be diametrically opposed. What you describe is "just off."

I suspect you managed to delete your initial post, thus leaving a thread with no posts.

The specific rule is that a center-to-center line between any square you occupy and any square your ally occupies has to pass through opposite sides of the opponent's entire base. (Not a single square.) The edges of those lines count (making diagonal flanks possible). However, you have to pass through the edges of the entire base, so to diagonally flank, you must be diametrically opposed to your ally, as RD has said.

The rule is not very realistic though. On the street, I have have two people charge at me one on the left and one on the right, the don't have to have centre to centre line between their squares to flank me, because the moment I turn to one, the other will attack, depends of my stance, eventually I will leave one side open for their attacks. So to solve this, I had to move around one and use that person to block the other and out punch that person before I take down the next. I guess it will be hard to play against if flanking become more realistic though.

There is a lot about the rules that isn't realistic.

And just as a note, you are responding to a 2 and a half year old dead thread. I almost said the same thing to Jokem ("I don't think the poster has been waiting 2 years for someone to find the thing"), until I realized he was responding to himself. Hopefully he didn't spend all this time looking...
