    Riddle me this: How am I a frickin' paladin of all things when at least four or five of my answers were ones obviously related to arcane magic?

Your understanding is now +5, not +10.

    You can also be a shadow sun ninja ninja ninja spy ninja of the crescent moon.

    Hint: Not 50%.
    It's closer to 85%, I'm afraid. But that news might not have gotten widespread media coverage yet.

    Plus you need it for eyeshadow.

    The second in particular convinces me that the age of reason has ended, and pigs will soon sprout wings.

    I've never read about an [Ex] ability that imposes sleep. Though one of my high school teachers must've had such an ability.

Of course, we'll also have to deal with the horde of demonic Capybaras from the modded Summon Monster possibly blocking our line-of-sight as mentioned in section 9b, so I'll use Silent Image to draw them away. If Malack attempts to use Divine Favor for the second time, then Z will have to use his Crushing Despair which will have a 30% chance to nullify the relevant bonuses on account of the debuffs already in place. At this time, if we can take the stake, Malack will panic letting us dive for the Holy Wafers, assuming any haven't been eaten by the Capybaras..."

    But in the end, it's still worth it. Someone's going to catch that brick and put it back in its place. The tower will climb ever higher. Humanity is beautiful, if a bit stained. That's why I'm still Good.

    Humility doesn't make you think less of yourself, it helps you thinks less about yourself. There are other, valid things on which one can focus, things that are not "me".

    So shut up, you parasitic soul-snatcher, because you aren't alive and never will be. You don't understand life at all. You're a mirror to it, but mirrors get everything backwards.
