10 thoughts on “Under paladins quest, what does ‘suffer an enemy or creature to live’ mean?”

  1. Basically: you can’t allow an evil creature to live.

    The most famous usage of that phrasing is (I believe) from the King James Bible, Exodus 22:18: “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.”

  2. Just about anything related to: music, cars, sports, calculus, the geopolitics of South Asia, plumbing, programming, thousands of specific trades and crafts, art history, can I stop now?

  3. As a side note I love choosing this vow for paladins. Makes them chase after even the knowledge of evil creatures being around. I had a Ranger scout a suspicious-but-harmless lone zombie a decent way off their path, and the paladin announced that it must be destroyed despite the time sensitive quest going on. Fun stuff.
