A paladin with a flight speed is fighting on a magical conveyor belt on top of a cliff. The paladin is knocked prone but has no other conditions when the conveyor belt throws them off the side of the cliff into midair. Does the paladin fall?

The answer is always yes.


Paladins no longer exist. They are extinct because all of them have already fallen. So your question is impossible to prove right or wrong.


How is the fly speed? winged of magical?


Could he be grappled by a succubus to avoid falling or would the succubus precipitate the paladin fall?
So many questions without an answer.

African or European paladin? Are they unladen?


Nah. He doesn't fall; he just wobbles a bit.

No. He hovers. But due to his flagrant disregard for gravity, he has broken the laws of physics.

Then he falls.

How many goblin babies did he land on?

Wasn't this proven on Mythbusters?

Forget Sandpoint, next campaign I run is going to start in the town of Paladin Falls.
Beautiful vistas.


Create pit always makes my Paladin fall.


Code of Conduct wrote:

A paladin must be of lawful good alignment and loses all class features except proficiencies if she ever willingly commits an evil act.

Additionally, a paladin's code requires that she respect legitimate authority, act with honor (not lying, not cheating, not using poison, and so forth), help those in need (provided they do not use the help for evil or chaotic ends), and punish those who harm or threaten innocents.

Associates: While she may adventure with good or neutral allies, a paladin avoids working with evil characters or with anyone who consistently offends her moral code. Under exceptional circumstances, a paladin can ally with evil associates, but only to defeat what she believes to be a greater evil. A paladin should seek an atonement spell periodically during such an unusual alliance, and should end the alliance immediately should she feel it is doing more harm than good. A paladin may accept only henchmen, followers, or cohorts who are lawful good.

RAW, the Paladin doesn't fall, because it hasn't broken its code of conduct. Honestly, I hope you didn't waste an action giving yourself a fly speed...

Like, five or six, my dude.


And how many squished goblins are needed to make him fall?
I mean, goblins breed all the time, don't they? Each day like zillions of them are born. I don't think gods can notice a few missing goblins, right? Right? Because some goblins around me might happen to have died... on... accident.
