    Smite and Bandits. Are they evil?

    Hey guys my Paladin have a +3 CHA modifier at level 2. When I use smite on the bandits in the intro area and 1st area after the intro I do not get a +12 attack modifier..my base attack modifier is a +8 should it not be + 12 with smite on bandits??? Unless they are not an evil alignment in game..wish I had detect evil.

    We don't have Detect evil either, so we can't be sure. However, my pally has used Smite Evil on a number of targets, and it works, so I guess the bandits are not considered Evil in this game. Which might be a coding mistake.

    Bandits aren't evil. They're just misunderstood. :p

    Depend on the bandit. Most of them probably are Chaotic Neutral.

    BTW, with a Charisma modifier of +3 and an attack of +8, you should get a total of +11, not +12.

    Ya apparently I cannot add. I fought some mites and they were evil and I got the proper +11. I guess bandits are not considered evil. I

    This has been tossed out somewhere before, however.
    If you are a casting Paladin you'll have access to a spell named "Challenge Evil" which can only be casted (no red x) on an evil target.
    This acts as a poor mans Detect Evil

    Challenge Evil is never leaving my spell list. Great workaround.
