Make the favored class Paladin and you're set. Two favored classes or a choice is too flexible for how you described them.

I would toss on an LA +1.

Nah. Slower speed, detect evil once a week... it's actually pretty nerfed, except for the double +2's.

That seems like too many stat bonuses for a -2 dex. Beyond that it's pretty nice.

The Hobgoblin from the MM:
Medium Human (Goblinoid).
+2 Dex, +2 Con.
Base speed: 30 ft.
+4 racial bonus on Move Silently checks.
Automatic Languages: Common, Goblin. Bonus Languages: Draconic, Dwarven, Infernal, Giant, Orc.
Favoured Class: Fighter.
Level Adjustment: +1.

Why are your dwarf people immune to Unholy Blight and Blasphemy? Those are powerful spells and that's pretty much a unique ability.

Maybe +2 to all saves against spells and spell-like abilities with the [evil] descriptor? Detect evil 1/day
then it would be a +1 Lv adjustment

Or remove the immunity to those evil spells completly to keep it at lv adjustment +0

I'm trying to keep it at LA +0. Other wise it sounds pretty good with the +2 saves for spells and spell like abilites.

Personally I think they seem a bit weak... I might at a +2 con or something... Dexterity seems a lot more vital a stat than wisdom or charisma, and additionaly it has a slow basespeed. Either that or I'd just knock it up to regular 30ft and call it even.

It seems pretty balanced as is though. The Con bonus would be too much.

Its an interesting race.

You know what... I take that back... Its a pretty boring race....

I say this only because they are pretty much super lawful good race (and with the racial abilities to cover being a pladin well). One of the major criticisms about this is that you've pretty much created a race with a major class in mind. The only other base class this race is good for is cleric. Druid doesn't use charisma and could really use the dex with their low armor. Ranger really needs the dex. Fighter has almost no need for the wis or cha.

besides flavor problems, it is balanced, if a little short on abilities. You know Dwarfs get +2 on all saves against magic, right?

so are they Humanoid, or native outsiders? Making them native outsiders would probably make them balanced.

and i agree with High-chancellor. Give them 30 foot base speed.

Alright I'll change the base speed

I am to assume the Native Outsider is 3.5 because I have no clue what you talking about and they aren't dwarf.

They could make good... rogues if your playing the old fashioned Charismatic rogue that run at the first sign of combat.

But most rogues like to be able to sneak and pick locks, disable traps... stuff like that.

I was onlt saying that for the the sake of arguing.

I mean that their +2 on saves against evil spells pretty much pales in comparison to a dwarf's +2 bonus on all magic.

And with that logic, they would probably make better bards than rogues. The bonus on gather information and diplomacy could make them better bards than half-elves.

Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
