Description

Monk.png

Fast and deadly, the monk strives to achieve physical perfection. Monks can harness Jin, an internal power source, to achieve extraordinary feats in and out of combat. Monks are able to join one of three martial schools, each with its own unique abilities. Choose the raw power of the dragon master, frustrate opponents as a drunken master, or choose the subtle and deceptive power of harmonious body mastery. Monks wear medium armor and prefer martial style weapons, including martial swords, staves, and hand to hand weapons.


Jin Points

The Monk generates an inner force within himself through many of his attacks, each increasing the points of Jin that powers his more powerful abilities. Certain stances can also generate Jin even outside of combat.
