TACTICS

Before Combat The paladin casts delay poison and resist energy (fire).

During Combat The paladin fights from horseback with his lance, positioning himself where he can attack the enemy leader using Spirited Charge. He uses Improved Overrun and Trample to pass and crush creatures in his way. If he is unhorsed and mounting again is dangerous or impractical, he casts holy sword on his mace and fights on foot.
