31 DAY CHARACTER CREATION CHALLENGE

You can read more about the challenge here and here.

Dedicated to Niko whom once lamented “man you have SW in the scene for like 10 or more years and you cannot get a supplement with pregens.”

Paladins! Champions of Law! As before, unlike original edition, in Swords & Wizardry Complete there are no minimum attribute requirements for choosing a Paladin class. Only limitations are that character must have Human ancestry and be of Lawful alignment. Rolling 3d6 in order 20 times produced only one set that would be eligible using original rules:
