"An existence unburdened by limitation demands harmony among body, spirit, and mind." -Cerul
Source: Psionic. Monks intense focus, constant training, and exceptional talent combine to allow them to harness the psionic power within themselves.
Role: Striker. Monks typically eschew weapons in favor of unarmed attacks, and they avoid armor in favor of maneuverability and agility. Few can match their speed and poise on the battlefield. Their powers are more than simple attacks; they are complex forms that allow them to strike and move with unmatched grace.
From high in forbidding mountains to deep in the alleys of a city's meanest district, the ascetic warriors known as monks practice their art. By focusing on their minds and bodies, honing both to near perfection, they master a psionic fighting art that allows them to deliver a punch with the force of a giant's club and to absorb attacks as easily as a heavily armored knight. Monks tap into the psionic potential that rests within themselves, turning that energy further inward to fortify their bodies and sharpen their minds.
Perhaps a monk set out on this path to put a dark past behind them. Or their village was victimized one time too many by an evil lord or marauding beasts, and they now seek justice. No matter what their motivation, the path of the monk transforms them into living weapons.
The road opens wide before a monk. With little more than a walking stick and perhaps a satchel of food , they are ready to take on whatever the world can throw at them. Their years of training taught them to turn their eye inward. Now it is time to look outward and test themselves against the world's dangers.
