Monk

Description: Monks are versatile warriors skilled at fighting without weapons or armor. Good-aligned monks serve as protectors of the people, while evil monks make ideal spies and assassins. Though they don't cast spells, monks channel a subtle energy, called ki. This energy allows them to perform amazing feats, such as healing themselves, catching arrows in flight, and dodging blows with lightning speed. Their mundane and ki-based abilities grow with experience, granting them more power over themselves and their environment. Monks suffer unique penalties to their abilities if they wear armor, as doing so violates their rigid oaths. A monk wearing armor loses their Wisdom and level based armor class bonuses, their movement speed, and their additional unarmed attacks per round.

Notes

  • The monk retains his unarmed attack bonus when fighting with a kama.
  • When you take Monk as a class you must take 5 levels of it before level 40.
  • Monks retain their unarmed attack bonus and can use Flurry of Blows when fighting with shurikens and quarterstaves.
  • Having any monk speed overrides the speed given from shifted shapes; this is mainly important for the Panther, but is likely true for other shapes that grant a speed boost.
