This is a list of paladin oaths and what they actually mean as most have ambiguous wording and reasonable ways to avoid them.

If a paladin tried to do something not allowed in their oath they must roll will, on a failure they are knocked prone for that round. If they don't take action when their oath says they should they must roll will, on a failure they are forced into action at the dm's discretion.

On this list will be the name of the oath, what that oath entails and what counts as breaking the oath.

Oath of Conquest[edit]

Douse the Flame of Hope: letting foes run/escape you. If you let them escape you take 1d6 fire damage.

Rule with an Iron Fist: if a creature succeeds against your intimidation or deception check they must be fought. If not you take 1d8 fire damage.

Strength Above All: if a creature succeeds against your persuasion check or challenges your rule/leadership you must challenge them to a duel. It may be a duel of blades, duel of wits, duel of magic but if you decline a duel you take 2d6 fire damage.
