You become a fallen paladin when your reputation gets too low (below 6 I believe). I know just adding Viconia to your party will drop your reputation by 2, so that could've been what did it (although she'd still have to have done some other 'bad' stuff to get down to a 6).

Personally, I've never experimented with losing/regaining paladin-hood. My understanding is you can regain it by completing all the paladin stronghold quests ... but you say she may've messed those up, in which case I have no idea if it's still possible.

One thing I know for sure is you can go to any temple and donate some money to get your reputation back up - there's a table in the manual that shows how much you need. (Or you can kick Viconia back out to get 2 rep back). I would think getting your reputation back above 6 would be required.

IIRC, once you've fallen, you stay fallen. You can bring your reputation back up, but you've still fallen.

It's "Reload an earlier save" time if you become Fallen.

Playing a Paladin, you should try to keep your Reputation above 10 at all times. And generally, I personally try to actually play like a Paladin - in other words, no lying, thieving, killing without being attacked first, etc., etc.

SPOILER

Have you gone to Windspear Hills. I think once you go there and kill the monsters (paladins) you lose your status. It is recovered via rescuing Garren's child.

Whoops, I'd forgotten about that plot point. Okay - if you become Fallen any time apart from that, then reload. ;)

Is there any way to CLUA back into status?
Or Import A diffrent Character?

I have no idea if you can CLUA the status back, but creating a new character is certainly possible. The only trick is it has to be a multi-player game. If it's not already, that simply means copying it from the save folder to the mpsave folder.

When you load a multi-player game, it gives you the screen where you select which characters to control. From there, you can click on the character name to delete them and create a new one in their place.

Just make sure you drop everything you're carrying and save it that way first though - otherwise you'll lose it all when you delete your character!

According to at least one walkthrough, if you're fallen and you successfully complete the third step of the paladin stronghold quest, you regain paladinhood. You said that you screwed up those quests, and I don't know if that means you can't get to the 3rd step now, but it seemed relevant so I thought I'd let you know.

If the Paladin Stronghold quest is stuffed - this is the one where the PC is redeemed back to a Paladin after falling - then you need to reload. Importing another PC (if playing multiplayer) will not fix the quest, and it will still be stuffed.

You need to reload prior to falling. And then don't let Viconia join unless your Reputation is really high. :)

Yes, importing a new character will not fix the quest - but it will 'restore' your paladin-hood (since the new character never lost it).

Copy your game to the mpsave folder, load the savegame in multiplayer and change the character. Then save again and copy back to the single player save folder and load that edited savegame.

Just use shadow keeper and change the characters kit back to Inquistor and add alittle extra reputation for safe keeping.
