====Class Features====
 
====Class Features====
   
All of the following are class features of the Mage Breaker.
+
All of the following are [[SRD:Class|class]] features of the monk.
   
'''{{Anchor|Ability Bonus}} ([[Ex]]):'''At Level 1, The Mage Breaker gains a +1 Untyped Bonus to an Ability Score, At Level 4, the Mage Breaker Gets an Additional +2 to the ability Score he chose at first level and a +1 Bonus to a different Ability Score. At level 8, His previous Bonuses Increase to +3/+2, and he gets a +1 bonus to a Third Ability Score, At Level 12, His previous Bonuses increase to +4/+3/+2, and he gets an additional +1 bonus to a Fourth Ability Score. At Level 16, His previous Bonuses increase to +5/+4/+3/+2, and he gets an additional +1 bonus to a fifth Ability Score. At Level 20, His previous Bonuses increase to +6/+5/+4/+3/+2, and he gets an additional +1 bonus to a sixth Ability Score. Ate Epic Level the Mage Breaker Gets +1 Bonus to all Abilities for every Four Levels.
+
'''Weapon and Armor Proficiency:''' Monks are proficient with [[SRD:Club|club]], crossbow ([[SRD:Light Crossbow|light]] or [[SRD:Heavy Crossbow|heavy]]), [[SRD:Dagger|dagger]], [[SRD:Handaxe|handaxe]], [[SRD:Javelin|javelin]], [[SRD:Kama|kama]], [[SRD:Nunchaku|nunchaku]], [[SRD:Quarterstaff|quarterstaff]], [[SRD:Sai|sai]], [[SRD:Shuriken|shuriken]], [[SRD:Siangham|siangham]], and [[SRD:Sling|sling]].
   
'''{{Anchor|Fast Healing}} ([[Su]]):'''Mage Breakers regain hit points at an Accelerated rate. They gain [[SRD:Fast Healing|Fast Healing]] 1 at level 1, [[SRD:Fast Healing|Fast Healing]] 2 at level 5, and [[SRD:Fast Healing|Fast Healing]] 3 at level 9.
+
Monks are not proficient with any armor or shields.
   
'''{{Anchor|Deny Magic}}:''' In addition to the inability to use any Spells, Spell-Like abilities, or magic items, The Mage Breaker must also refuse magical aid. If a Beneficial spell (such as a Buff or Heal spell) has a save that negates it's effect, the Mage Breaker MUST make a save against it if it is cast upon him. For Example, Cure spells only half effective if the Mage Breaker makes his save and all ally are always subject to SR.
+
When wearing armor, using a shield, or carrying a medium or heavy load, a monk loses her [[#AC Bonus|AC bonus]], as well as her [[#Fast Movement|fast movement]] and [[#Flurry of Blows|flurry of blows]] abilities.
   
'''{{Anchor|Spell Resistance}} ([[Ex]]):''' At first level, the Mage Breaker gains [[SRD:Spell Resistance and Spell Immunity|Spell Resistance]] equal to 15 + Class Level. The Mage Breaker has special rules dealing with Stacking Spell Resistance. If the Mage Breaker has Spell Resistance from another source that is 10 + x or 15 + x, He may add 10 or 15 to his Total SR (Depending on Whether or not the SR was 10 or 15). He does not, however, add any extra boosts to his SR. So a Drow + Mage Breaker 10 Has an SR of 36, Not 46 (remember, just add the base bonus not the level increment).
+
'''{{Anchor|AC Bonus}} ([[SRD:Special Abilities Overview#Extraordinary|Ex]]):''' When unarmored and unencumbered, the monk adds her [[SRD:Wisdom|Wisdom]] bonus (if any) to her [[SRD:AC|AC]]. In addition, a monk gains a +1 bonus to [[SRD:AC|AC]] at 5th level. This bonus increases by 1 for every five monk levels thereafter (+2 at 10th, +3 at 15th, and +4 at 20th level).
   
'''{{Anchor|Incribing Weapons}} ([[Ex]]):''' At Level 2, the Mage Breaker must choose up to 3 Masterwork Weapons (Or Masterwork Bracers/Handwraps if he wishes to have his unarmed strike as one of his Incribing Weapons.) to serve as his Incribing Weapons. These Incribing Weapons are treated as Natural Weapons, but only for the Mage Breaker they are attuned to. If he does not have any of his Incribing Weapons on his person, the Mage Breaker can't use their ''Anti-Magic Strike'', ''Vicious Strike'', ''Spellfire Destruction'', ''Natural Weapons'' and ''Spell Shatter'' Abilities. Also, at Levels 2, 4, 6, 8, and every even levels, the Mage Breaker gains an Enhancement Bonus to attack or damage rolls with his Incribing Weapons equal to 1/2 his Mage Breaker Level, rounded down, note that if you select + 1 for damage and your next bonus +2 will be +1 to hit. Finally it means that a +10 weapon will be +5 to damage and hit, for the sake of Feats such as from the Weapon Focus Tree, the Mage Breaker may choose "Incribing Weapons". So if a Mage Breaker took Weapon Focus (Incribing Weapons), he would receive a +1 Bonus to his attack rolls with All three of his Incribing Weapons. If the Mage Breaker loses one of his Incribing Weapons, he may select a new Masterwork Weapon to serve as his inscribing weapon by inscribing with it for one hour. In case of a dual-wielding Mage Braker if you use 2 similar weapons (2 daggers, a pair of claws, 2 axes, Handwraps) both count as 1 for the number of weapon that the Mage Breaker can attune. Any inscribed have the same propeties and benefits of an enchanted weapon of same level, for example a level 1, 2 or 3 will have the same porpeties of a level 1 bonus enchanted weap while a +8 or +9 inscribed is like a +4 enchanted to determine which level of enchante the inscribed weapon have just divide the Incribing Weapons Bonus by two and round down.
+
These bonuses to [[SRD:AC|AC]] apply even against [[SRD:Touch Attack|touch attacks]] or when the monk is [[SRD:Flat-Footed|flat-footed]]. She loses these bonuses when she is immobilized or [[SRD:Helpless|helpless]], when she wears any armor, when she carries a shield, or when she carries a medium or heavy load.
   
'''{{Anchor|Damage Reduction}} ([[Ex]]): ''' At Second level, the Mage Breaker gains [[SRD:Damage Reduction|Damage Reduction]] 1/-.The mage breaker get +1/- DR for every two levels.
+
'''{{Anchor|Flurry of Blows}} ([[SRD:Special Abilities Overview#Extraordinary|Ex]]):''' When unarmored, a monk may strike with a flurry of blows at the expense of accuracy. When doing so, she may make one extra attack in a [[SRD:Round|round]] at her highest [[SRD:Base Attack Bonus|base attack bonus]], but this attack takes a –2 penalty, as does each other attack made that [[SRD:Round|round]]. The resulting modified base attack bonuses are shown in the Flurry of Blows Attack Bonus column on [[#Table: The Monk|Table: The Monk]]. This penalty applies for 1 [[SRD:Round|round]], so it also affects [[SRD:Attack of Opportunity|attacks of opportunity]] the monk might make before her next action. When a monk reaches 5th level, the penalty lessens to –1, and at 9th level it disappears. A monk must use a full attack action to strike with a flurry of blows.
   
'''{{Anchor|Energy Resistance}} ([[Ex]]): ''' At Second level, the Mage Breaker gains [[SRD:Energy Resistance|Energy Resistance]] 2 to all types of Energy (fire, cold, acid, sonic and Electricity). The mage breaker get +2 Energy Resistance for every two levels.
+
When using flurry of blows, a monk may attack only with unarmed strikes or with special monk weapons (kama, nunchaku, quarterstaff, sai, shuriken, and siangham). She may attack with unarmed strikes and special monk weapons interchangeably as desired. When using weapons as part of a flurry of blows, a monk applies her [[SRD:Strength|Strength]] bonus (not [[SRD:Strength|Str]] bonus &times; 1-1/2 or &times;1/2) to her [[SRD:Attack Damage|damage rolls]] for all successful attacks, whether she wields a weapon in one or both hands. The monk can’t use any weapon other than a special monk weapon as part of a flurry of blows.
   
'''{{Anchor|Anti-Magic Strike}} ([[Su]]):''' When attacking a Creature or Object, the Mage Breaker can choose to reduce his damage by half to duplicate the effects of a Targeted [[SRD:Dispel Magic|Dispel Magic]]. Instead of making a Caster level check Vs DC 1D20 + Spellcaster's Level (max. +10), the Mage Breaker makes an Attack Roll. If his attack roll (with all relevant modifiers) meets or exceeds the DC of the Dispel Check, then the Target is subjected to the Effects of a Targeted Dispel Magic, however the Mage Braker must dispel each effect in a target, if you target have many spells on it, such Cat's Grace, Bull's Strength and Haste you must use one Atack with Anti-Magic per spell. You can all dispell static spells such as firewall and any spell that is affected by dispell magic including magic items.
+
In the case of the quarterstaff, each end counts as a separate weapon for the purpose of using the flurry of blows ability. Even though the quarterstaff requires two hands to use, a monk may still intersperse unarmed strikes with quarterstaff strikes, assuming that she has enough attacks in her flurry of blows routine to do so.
   
'''{{Anchor|Evasion}} ([[Ex]]):''' At 3rd level, the Mage Breaker gains the use of the [[SRD:Evasion and Improved Evasion|Evasion]] Ability. At 9th Level, the Mage Breaker Gains use of the [[SRD:Evasion and Improved Evasion|Improved Evasion]] Ability.
+
When a monk reaches 11th level, her flurry of blows ability improves. In addition to the standard single extra attack she gets from flurry of blows, she gets a second extra attack at her full [[SRD:Base Attack Bonus|base attack bonus]].
   
'''{{Anchor|Vicious Strike (Magic)}} ([[Ex]]):''' At 3rd level, any Signature Weapon the Mage Breaker wields is treated as a Natural Weapon with the Magic Property. At level 7, they also gain the Silver Property. At level 11, they gain the Cold Iron Property At level 15, they gain the Adamantine Property and At level 19, they gain the Incorporeal Property, allowing the Mage Breaker hit as having the Ghost Touch Property. At Epic level you get the Epic Property at level 23.
+
'''{{Anchor|Unarmed Strike}}:''' At 1st level, a monk gains [[SRD:Improved Unarmed Strike|Improved Unarmed Strike]] as a bonus [[SRD:Feats|feat]]. A monk’s attacks may be with either fist interchangeably or even from elbows, knees, and feet. This means that a monk may even make unarmed strikes with her hands full. There is no such thing as an off-hand attack for a monk striking unarmed. A monk may thus apply her full [[SRD:Strength|Strength]] bonus on [[SRD:Attack Damage|damage rolls]] for all her unarmed strikes.
   
'''{{Anchor|Tough Defense}} ([[Ex]]):''' At 3rd Level, the Mage Breaker gains a Natural Armor bonus equal to his [[Constitution]] Modifier (Minimum 1).
+
Usually a monk’s unarmed strikes deal lethal damage, but she can choose to deal [[SRD:Nonlethal Damage|nonlethal damage]] instead with no penalty on her [[SRD:Attack Roll|attack roll]]. She has the same choice to deal lethal or [[SRD:Nonlethal Damage|nonlethal damage]] while [[SRD:Grappling|grappling]].
   
'''{{Anchor|Spellfire Destruction}} ([[Ex]]):''' On an Attack, a Mage Breaker may choose to deal no damage to his Target. If the Target is a spellcaster, or has any [[Supernatural]] or [[SRD:Special Abilities Overview|Spell-Like Abilities]], they are suppressed for 1d4 + X Modifier Rounds (Where X equals the Ability score used to make the Attack. Thus a Mage Breaker with Weapon Finesse would Use Dexterity, whereas a Mage Breaker with Zen Archery would use Wisdom) unless they make a [[Fortitude]] Save equal to (10 + 1/2 the Mage Breaker's Character Level + Mage Breaker's X Modifier).
+
A monk’s [[SRD:Unarmed Strike|unarmed strike]] is treated both as a manufactured weapon and a [[SRD:Natural Weapon|natural weapon]] for the purpose of spells and effects that enhance or improve either manufactured weapons or [[SRD:Natural Weapon|natural weapons]].
   
'''{{Anchor|Slippery Mind}} ([[Ex]]):''' At 6th level, the Mage Breaker gains use of the Slippery Mind ability. If he fails his saving throw vs. An Enchantment Spell, he may make another save one round later. He only gets one extra chance to succeed at his saving throw.
+
A monk also deals more damage with her unarmed strikes than a normal person would, as shown on [[#Table: The Monk|Table: The Monk]]. The unarmed damage on [[#Table: The Monk|Table: The Monk]] is for Medium monks. A Small monk deals less damage than the amount given there with her unarmed attacks, while a Large monk deals more damage; see [[#Table: Monk Unarmed Damage by Size|Table: Monk Unarmed Damage by Size]].
   
'''{{Anchor|Mettle}} ([[Ex]]):'''At 7th level, the Mage Breaker gains use of the Mettle Ability. If he is subject to a spell with Will or Fortitude save Partial, and he makes the save, he is unaffected by the spell. This also includes beneficial spells.

'''{{Anchor|Anti-Magic Field}} ([[Su]]):''' At Epic levels, the Mage Breaker is surrounded by an [[SRD:Antimagic Field|anti-magic field]] with a caster level equal to his Character Level. The Field becomes larger at higher levels as indicated by the chart above. This Anti-Magic field does not, however, affect the Mage Breaker's [[Supernatural]] Abilities (If any).
+
'''{{Anchor|Bonus Feat}}:''' At 1st level, a monk may select either [[SRD:Improved Grapple|Improved Grapple]] or [[SRD:Stunning Fist|Stunning Fist]] as a bonus [[SRD:Feats|feat]]. At 2nd level, she may select either [[SRD:Combat Reflexes|Combat Reflexes]] or [[SRD:Deflect Arrows|Deflect Arrows]] as a bonus [[SRD:Feats|feat]]. At 6th level, she may select either [[SRD:Improved Disarm|Improved Disarm]] or [[SRD:Improved Trip|Improved Trip]] as a bonus [[SRD:Feats|feat]]. A monk need not have any of the prerequisites normally required for these [[SRD:Feats|feats]] to select them.
   
===Campaign Information===
+
'''{{Anchor|Evasion}} ([[SRD:Special Abilities Overview#Extraordinary|Ex]]):''' At 2nd level or higher if a monk makes a successful [[SRD:Saving Throw|Reflex]] [[SRD:Saving Throw|saving throw]] against an attack that normally deals half damage on a successful save, she instead takes no damage. Evasion can be used only if a monk is wearing light armor or no armor. A [[SRD:Helpless|helpless]] monk does not gain the benefit of evasion.
   
====Playing a Mage Breaker====
+
'''{{Anchor|Fast Movement}} ([[SRD:Special Abilities Overview#Extraordinary|Ex]]):''' At 3rd level, a monk gains an enhancement bonus to her speed, as shown on [[#Table: The Monk|Table: The Monk]]. A monk in armor or carrying a medium or heavy load loses this extra speed.
   
'''Weapon and Armor Proficiency:''' The mage breaker are not proficient with any armor or shields.
+
'''{{Anchor|Still Mind}} ([[SRD:Special Abilities Overview#Extraordinary|Ex]]):''' A monk of 3rd level or higher gains a +2 bonus on [[SRD:Saving Throw|saving throws]] against spells and effects from the school of enchantment.
   
  +
'''{{Anchor|''Ki'' Strike}} ([[SRD:Special Abilities Overview#Supernatural|Su]]):''' At 4th level, a monk’s unarmed attacks are empowered with ''ki.'' Her unarmed attacks are treated as magic weapons for the purpose of dealing damage to creatures with damage reduction. ''Ki'' strike improves with the character’s monk level. At 10th level, her unarmed attacks are also treated as lawful weapons for the purpose of dealing damage to creatures with damage reduction. At 16th level, her unarmed attacks are treated as adamantine weapons for the purpose of dealing damage to creatures with damage reduction and bypassing hardness.
   
'''Features:''' The mage breaker are nomads and don't keep resisdence for too much time in a place they use travel around the world looking for evil mages and hunting them down.
+
'''{{Anchor|Slow Fall}} ([[SRD:Special Abilities Overview#Extraordinary|Ex]]):''' At 4th level or higher, a monk within arm’s reach of a wall can use it to slow her descent. When first using this ability, she takes damage as if the fall were 20 feet shorter than it actually is. The monk’s ability to slow her fall (that is, to reduce the effective distance of the fall when next to a wall) improves with her monk level until at 20th level she can use a nearby wall to slow her descent and fall any distance without harm.
   
'''Resources:''' Mage Breakers are not an organized group. However, they may assist fellow Mage Breakers of the Same Alignment.
+
'''{{Anchor|Purity of Body}} ([[SRD:Special Abilities Overview#Extraordinary|Ex]]):''' At 5th level, a monk gains immunity to all diseases except for supernatural and magical diseases.
   
====Mage Breakers in the World====
+
'''{{Anchor|Wholeness of Body}} ([[SRD:Special Abilities Overview#Supernatural|Su]]):''' At 7th level or higher, a monk can heal her own wounds. She can heal a number of [[SRD:Hit Points|hit points]] of damage equal to twice her current monk level each day, and she can spread this healing out among several uses.
   
{{quote|Yes, Elmister is dead, he was a good man, but leant the wrong profession.|src= Tygor, Human Mage Breaker}}
+
'''{{Anchor|Improved Evasion}} ([[SRD:Special Abilities Overview#Extraordinary|Ex]]):''' At 9th level, a monk’s evasion ability improves. She still takes no damage on a successful [[SRD:Saving Throw|Reflex]] [[SRD:Saving Throw|saving throw]] against attacks, but henceforth she takes only half damage on a failed save. A [[SRD:Helpless|helpless]] monk does not gain the benefit of improved evasion.
   
'''NPC Reactions:''' The Mage Breaker is a hero to the Common Folk, the kind of people who live simple lives and dislike magic in all it's forms.
+
'''{{Anchor|Diamond Body}} ([[SRD:Special Abilities Overview#Supernatural|Su]]):''' At 11th level, a monk gains immunity to poisons of all kinds.
   
====Mage Breaker Lore====
+
'''{{Anchor|Abundant Step}} ([[SRD:Special Abilities Overview#Supernatural|Su]]):''' At 12th level or higher, a monk can slip magically between spaces, as if using the spell ''[[SRD:Dimension Door|dimension door]]'', once per day. Her [[SRD:Caster Level|caster level]] for this effect is one-half her monk level (rounded down).
   
Characters with ranks in Knowledge (Arcana) can research Mage Breakers to learn more about them. When a character makes a skill check, read or paraphrase the following, including information from lower DCs.
+
'''{{Anchor|Diamond Soul}} ([[SRD:Special Abilities Overview#Extraordinary|Ex]]):''' At 13th level, a monk gains [[SRD:Spell Resistance and Spell Immunity#Spell Resistance (Ex)|spell resistance]] equal to her current monk level + 10. In order to affect the monk with a spell, a spellcaster must get a result on a [[SRD:Caster Level|caster level]] check (1d20 + [[SRD:Caster Level|caster level]]) that equals or exceeds the monk’s [[SRD:Spell Resistance|spell resistance]].
  +
  +
'''{{Anchor|Quivering Palm}} ([[SRD:Special Abilities Overview#Supernatural|Su]]):''' Starting at 15th level, a monk can set up vibrations within the body of another creature that can thereafter be fatal if the monk so desires. She can use this quivering palm attack once a week, and she must announce her intent before making her [[SRD:Attack Roll|attack roll]]. [[SRD:Construct Type|Constructs]], [[SRD:Ooze Type|oozes]], [[SRD:Plant Type|plants]], [[SRD:Undead Type|undead]], [[SRD:Incorporeal Subtype|incorporeal]] creatures, and creatures immune to [[SRD:Critical Hit|critical hits]] cannot be affected. Otherwise, if the monk strikes successfully and the target takes damage from the blow, the quivering palm attack succeeds. Thereafter the monk can try to slay the victim at any later time, as long as the attempt is made within a number of days equal to her monk level. To make such an attempt, the monk merely wills the target to die (a [[SRD:Free Actions|free action]]), and unless the target makes a [[SRD:Saving Throw|Fortitude]] [[SRD:Saving Throw|saving throw]] ([[SRD:DC|DC]] 10 + 1/2 the monk’s level + the monk’s [[SRD:Wisdom|Wis]] modifier), it dies. If the [[SRD:Saving Throw|saving throw]] is successful, the target is no longer in danger from that particular quivering palm attack, but it may still be affected by another one at a later time.
  +
  +
'''{{Anchor|Timeless Body}} ([[SRD:Special Abilities Overview#Extraordinary|Ex]]):''' Upon attaining 17th level, a monk no longer takes penalties to her ability scores for aging and cannot be magically aged. Any such penalties that she has already taken, however, remain in place. Bonuses still accrue, and the monk still dies of old age when her time is up.
  +
  +
'''{{Anchor|Tongue of the Sun and Moon}} ([[SRD:Special Abilities Overview#Extraordinary|Ex]]):''' A monk of 17th level or higher can speak with any living creature.
  +
  +
'''{{Anchor|Empty Body}} ([[SRD:Special Abilities Overview#Supernatural|Su]]):''' At 19th level, a monk gains the ability to assume an ethereal state for 1 [[SRD:Round|round]] per monk level per day, as though using the spell ''[[SRD:etherealness (Spell)|etherealness]]''. She may go ethereal on a number of different occasions during any single day, as long as the total number of rounds spent in an ethereal state does not exceed her monk level.
  +
  +
'''{{Anchor|Perfect Self}}:''' At 20th level, a monk becomes a magical creature. She is forevermore treated as an [[SRD:Outsider Type|outsider]] rather than as a [[SRD:Humanoid Type|humanoid]] (or whatever the monk’s creature type was) for the purpose of spells and magical effects. Additionally, the monk gains damage reduction 10/magic, which allows her to ignore the first 10 points of damage from any attack made by a nonmagical weapon or by any natural attack made by a creature that doesn’t have similar damage reduction. Unlike other [[SRD:Outsider Type|outsiders]], the monk can still be brought back from the [[SRD:Dead|dead]] as if she were a member of her previous creature type.
  +
  +
====Ex-Monks====
  +
  +
A monk who becomes nonlawful cannot gain new levels as a monk but retains all monk abilities.
  +
  +
Like a member of any other [[SRD:Class|class]], a monk may be a [[SRD:Multiclass Characters|multiclass]] character, but [[SRD:Multiclass Characters|multiclass]] monks face a special restriction. A monk who gains a new [[SRD:Class|class]] or (if already [[SRD:Multiclass Characters|multiclass]]) raises another [[SRD:Class|class]] by a level may never again raise her monk level, though she retains all her monk abilities.

Class FeaturesEdit

All of the following are class features of the monk.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Monks are proficient with club, crossbow (light or heavy), dagger, handaxe, javelin, kama, nunchaku, quarterstaff, sai, shuriken, siangham, and sling.

Monks are not proficient with any armor or shields.

When wearing armor, using a shield, or carrying a medium or heavy load, a monk loses her AC bonus, as well as her fast movement and flurry of blows abilities.

AC Bonus (Ex): When unarmored and unencumbered, the monk adds her Wisdom bonus (if any) to her AC. In addition, a monk gains a +1 bonus to AC at 5th level. This bonus increases by 1 for every five monk levels thereafter (+2 at 10th, +3 at 15th, and +4 at 20th level).

These bonuses to AC apply even against touch attacks or when the monk is flat-footed. She loses these bonuses when she is immobilized or helpless, when she wears any armor, when she carries a shield, or when she carries a medium or heavy load.

Flurry of Blows (Ex): When unarmored, a monk may strike with a flurry of blows at the expense of accuracy. When doing so, she may make one extra attack in a round at her highest base attack bonus, but this attack takes a –2 penalty, as does each other attack made that round. The resulting modified base attack bonuses are shown in the Flurry of Blows Attack Bonus column on Table: The Monk. This penalty applies for 1 round, so it also affects attacks of opportunity the monk might make before her next action. When a monk reaches 5th level, the penalty lessens to –1, and at 9th level it disappears. A monk must use a full attack action to strike with a flurry of blows.

When using flurry of blows, a monk may attack only with unarmed strikes or with special monk weapons (kama, nunchaku, quarterstaff, sai, shuriken, and siangham). She may attack with unarmed strikes and special monk weapons interchangeably as desired. When using weapons as part of a flurry of blows, a monk applies her Strength bonus (not Str bonus × 1-1/2 or ×1/2) to her damage rolls for all successful attacks, whether she wields a weapon in one or both hands. The monk can’t use any weapon other than a special monk weapon as part of a flurry of blows.

In the case of the quarterstaff, each end counts as a separate weapon for the purpose of using the flurry of blows ability. Even though the quarterstaff requires two hands to use, a monk may still intersperse unarmed strikes with quarterstaff strikes, assuming that she has enough attacks in her flurry of blows routine to do so.

When a monk reaches 11th level, her flurry of blows ability improves. In addition to the standard single extra attack she gets from flurry of blows, she gets a second extra attack at her full base attack bonus.

Unarmed Strike: At 1st level, a monk gains Improved Unarmed Strike as a bonus feat. A monk’s attacks may be with either fist interchangeably or even from elbows, knees, and feet. This means that a monk may even make unarmed strikes with her hands full. There is no such thing as an off-hand attack for a monk striking unarmed. A monk may thus apply her full Strength bonus on damage rolls for all her unarmed strikes.

Usually a monk’s unarmed strikes deal lethal damage, but she can choose to deal nonlethal damage instead with no penalty on her attack roll. She has the same choice to deal lethal or nonlethal damage while grappling.

A monk’s unarmed strike is treated both as a manufactured weapon and a natural weapon for the purpose of spells and effects that enhance or improve either manufactured weapons or natural weapons.

A monk also deals more damage with her unarmed strikes than a normal person would, as shown on Table: The Monk. The unarmed damage on Table: The Monk is for Medium monks. A Small monk deals less damage than the amount given there with her unarmed attacks, while a Large monk deals more damage; see Table: Monk Unarmed Damage by Size.

Bonus Feat: At 1st level, a monk may select either Improved Grapple or Stunning Fist as a bonus feat. At 2nd level, she may select either Combat Reflexes or Deflect Arrows as a bonus feat. At 6th level, she may select either Improved Disarm or Improved Trip as a bonus feat. A monk need not have any of the prerequisites normally required for these feats to select them.

Evasion (Ex): At 2nd level or higher if a monk makes a successful Reflex saving throw against an attack that normally deals half damage on a successful save, she instead takes no damage. Evasion can be used only if a monk is wearing light armor or no armor. A helpless monk does not gain the benefit of evasion.

Fast Movement (Ex): At 3rd level, a monk gains an enhancement bonus to her speed, as shown on Table: The Monk. A monk in armor or carrying a medium or heavy load loses this extra speed.

Still Mind (Ex): A monk of 3rd level or higher gains a +2 bonus on saving throws against spells and effects from the school of enchantment.

Ki Strike (Su): At 4th level, a monk’s unarmed attacks are empowered with ki. Her unarmed attacks are treated as magic weapons for the purpose of dealing damage to creatures with damage reduction. Ki strike improves with the character’s monk level. At 10th level, her unarmed attacks are also treated as lawful weapons for the purpose of dealing damage to creatures with damage reduction. At 16th level, her unarmed attacks are treated as adamantine weapons for the purpose of dealing damage to creatures with damage reduction and bypassing hardness.

Slow Fall (Ex): At 4th level or higher, a monk within arm’s reach of a wall can use it to slow her descent. When first using this ability, she takes damage as if the fall were 20 feet shorter than it actually is. The monk’s ability to slow her fall (that is, to reduce the effective distance of the fall when next to a wall) improves with her monk level until at 20th level she can use a nearby wall to slow her descent and fall any distance without harm.

Purity of Body (Ex): At 5th level, a monk gains immunity to all diseases except for supernatural and magical diseases.

Wholeness of Body (Su): At 7th level or higher, a monk can heal her own wounds. She can heal a number of hit points of damage equal to twice her current monk level each day, and she can spread this healing out among several uses.

Improved Evasion (Ex): At 9th level, a monk’s evasion ability improves. She still takes no damage on a successful Reflex saving throw against attacks, but henceforth she takes only half damage on a failed save. A helpless monk does not gain the benefit of improved evasion.

Diamond Body (Su): At 11th level, a monk gains immunity to poisons of all kinds.

Abundant Step (Su): At 12th level or higher, a monk can slip magically between spaces, as if using the spell dimension door, once per day. Her caster level for this effect is one-half her monk level (rounded down).

Diamond Soul (Ex): At 13th level, a monk gains spell resistance equal to her current monk level + 10. In order to affect the monk with a spell, a spellcaster must get a result on a caster level check (1d20 + caster level) that equals or exceeds the monk’s spell resistance.

Quivering Palm (Su): Starting at 15th level, a monk can set up vibrations within the body of another creature that can thereafter be fatal if the monk so desires. She can use this quivering palm attack once a week, and she must announce her intent before making her attack roll. Constructs, oozes, plants, undead, incorporeal creatures, and creatures immune to critical hits cannot be affected. Otherwise, if the monk strikes successfully and the target takes damage from the blow, the quivering palm attack succeeds. Thereafter the monk can try to slay the victim at any later time, as long as the attempt is made within a number of days equal to her monk level. To make such an attempt, the monk merely wills the target to die (a free action), and unless the target makes a Fortitude saving throw (DC 10 + 1/2 the monk’s level + the monk’s Wis modifier), it dies. If the saving throw is successful, the target is no longer in danger from that particular quivering palm attack, but it may still be affected by another one at a later time.

Timeless Body (Ex): Upon attaining 17th level, a monk no longer takes penalties to her ability scores for aging and cannot be magically aged. Any such penalties that she has already taken, however, remain in place. Bonuses still accrue, and the monk still dies of old age when her time is up.

Tongue of the Sun and Moon (Ex): A monk of 17th level or higher can speak with any living creature.

Empty Body (Su): At 19th level, a monk gains the ability to assume an ethereal state for 1 round per monk level per day, as though using the spell etherealness. She may go ethereal on a number of different occasions during any single day, as long as the total number of rounds spent in an ethereal state does not exceed her monk level.

Perfect Self: At 20th level, a monk becomes a magical creature. She is forevermore treated as an outsider rather than as a humanoid (or whatever the monk’s creature type was) for the purpose of spells and magical effects. Additionally, the monk gains damage reduction 10/magic, which allows her to ignore the first 10 points of damage from any attack made by a nonmagical weapon or by any natural attack made by a creature that doesn’t have similar damage reduction. Unlike other outsiders, the monk can still be brought back from the dead as if she were a member of her previous creature type.

Ex-MonksEdit

A monk who becomes nonlawful cannot gain new levels as a monk but retains all monk abilities.

Like a member of any other class, a monk may be a multiclass character, but multiclass monks face a special restriction. A monk who gains a new class or (if already multiclass) raises another class by a level may never again raise her monk level, though she retains all her monk abilities.
