    The Tattooed Monk

    Okay, then. I think this is ready for a trial run, if anyone is interested. Let me know if you have any other ideas or thoughts on the class or the tattoos of power.

    EDIT: The revised version is a few posts down.

    I still need some help or advice on the fluff, such as where these guys originated in the Flaness (or if they originated in the Flaness), their monastaries, etc, etc. So any suggestions or advice you fellows may have will be most welcome.

    Thanks to everyone on the Greytalk chat last who provided some assistance with the tattoos themself. And I would more than welcome any critiques or criticisms.

    Sigh. Left one Tier 2 tattoo of power out.

    Chameleon: Two times per day, a character with the chameleon tattoo may become invisible, as per the spell.

    I think that is the ony one I left out.

    Well, here is the revised version that incorporates everyone's suggestions to date. Let me if you see anything that I need to fix--and thank you for all your help! I do hope that you enjoy it.

    Tattooed Monk

    Adorned across his body with dozens of colorful and fearsome tattoos, the tattooed monk is a martial character able to perform feats of magic and skill beyond the ken of most mortals. No two tattooed monks have the exact range of powers and abilities: versatility is the watchword of this class.

    Alignment: Any lawful.

    BAB: Medium.

    Hit Die: d8.

    Saves: All good.

    Class Skills: Acrobatics (Dex), Climb (Str), Craft (Int), Diplomacy (Cha), Escape Artist (Dex), Intimidate (Cha), Knowledge (History) (Int), Knowledge (Religion) (Int), Perception (Wis), Perform (Cha), Profession (Wis), Ride (Dex), Sense Motive (Wis), Stealth (Dex), and Swim (Str).

    Skill Ranks per Level: 4 + Int modifier.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Tattooed monks are proficient with the club, crossbow (light or heavy), dagger, handaxe, javelin, kama, quarterstaff, sai, shortspear, short sword, shuriken, siangham, sling, and spear.
    Tattooed monks are not proficient with any armor or shields.
    When wearing armor, wielding or otherwise equipping a shield, or carrying a medium or heavy load, a tattooed monk loses his AC bonus, as well as his flurry of blows ability.

    AC Bonus (Ex): When unarmored and unencumbered, the tattooed monk adds his Wisdom bonus (if any) to his AC and his CMD. In addition, a tattooed monk gains a +1 bonus to AC and CMD at 4th level. This bonus increases by 1 for every four tattooed monk levels thereafter.
    These bonuses to AC apply even against touch attacks or when the tattooed monk is flat-footed. He loses these bonuses when he is immobilized or helpless, when he wears any armor, when he wields or other equips a shield, or when he carries a medium or heavy load.

    Flurry of Blows (Ex): Starting at 1st level, a tattooed monk can make a flurry of blows as a full-attack action. When doing so he may make one additional attack using any combination of unarmed strikes or attacks with a special monk weapon (kama, nunchaku, quarterstaff, sai, shuriken, and siangham) as if using the Two-Weapon Fighting feat (even if the tattooed monk does not meet the prerequisites for the feat). For the purpose of these attacks, a tattooed monk’s base attack bonus is equal to his tattooed monk level. For all other purposes, such as qualifying for a feat or prestige class, the tattooed monk uses his normal base attack bonus.
    At 8th level, the tattooed monk can make two additional attacks when he uses flurry of blows, as if using Improved Two-Weapon Fighting (even if the tattooed monk does not meet the prerequisites for the feat).
    At 15th level, the tattooed monk can make three additional attacks using flurry of blows, as if using Greater Two-Weapon Fighting (even if the tattooed monk does not meet the perquisites for the feat).
    A tattooed monk applies his full Strength bonus to his damage rolls for all successful attacks made with flurry of blows, whether the attacks are made with an off-hand or with a weapon wielded in both hands. A tattooed monk may substitute disarm, sunder, and trip combat maneuvers for unarmed attacks as part of a flurry of blows. A monk cannot use any weapon other than an unarmed strike or a special monk weapon as part of a flurry of blows. A monk with natural weapons cannot use such weapons as part of a flurry of blows, nor can he make natural attacks in addition to his flurry of blows attacks.

    Unarmed Strike (Ex): At 1st level, a tattooed monk gains Improved Unarmed Strike as a bonus feat. A tattooed monk’s attacks may be with fists, elbows, knees, and feet. This means that a tattooed monk may make unarmed attacks with his hands full. There is no such thing as an off-hand attack for a tattooed monk striking unarmed. A tattooed monk may thus apply his full Strength bonus on damage rolls for all his unarmed strikes.
    Usually, a tattooed monk’s unarmed strikes deal lethal damage, but he can choose to deal nonlethal damage instead with no penalty on his attack roll. He has the same choice to deal lethal or nonlethal damage while grappling.
    A tattooed monk’s unarmed strike is treated as a both 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 tattooed monk also deals more damage with his unarmed strikes than a normal person would, as shown on Table 3-19 Monk. The unarmed damage values listed on Table 3-19 Monk is for Medium tattooed monks. A Small tattooed monk deals less damage than the amount given there with his unarmed strikes, while a Large monk deals more damage; see Table 3-20 Small or Large Monk Unarmed Damage for details.

    Bonus Feat: At 1st level, 2nd level, and every 4 levels thereafter, a tattooed monk may select a bonus feat. These feats must be taken from the following list: Catch Off-Guard, Combat Reflexes, Deflect Arrows, Dodge, Improved Grapple, Scorpion Style, and Throw Anything. At 6th level, the following feats are added to the list: Gorgon’s Fist, Improved Bull Rush, Improved Disarm, Improved Feint, Improved Trip, and Mobility. At 10th level, the following feats are added to the list: Improved Critical, Medusa’s Wrath, Snatch Arrows, and Spring Attack. A tattooed monk need not have any of the prerequisites normally required for these feats to select them.

    Stunning Fist (Ex): At 1st level, a tattooed monk gains Stunning Fist as a bonus feat, even if he does not meet the prerequisites. At 4th level, and every 4 levels thereafter, the tattooed monk gains the ability to apply a new condition to the target of his Stunning Fist. This condition replaces stunning the target for 1 round, and a successful saving throw still negates the effect. At 4th level, he can choose to make the target fatigued. At 8th level, he can make the target sickened for 1 minute. At 12th level, he can make the target staggered for 1d6+1 rounds. At 16th level, he can permanently blind or deafen the target. At 20th level, he can paralyze the target for 1d6+1 rounds. The tattooed monk must choose which condition will apply before the attack roll is made. These effects do not stack with themselves (a creature sickened by Stunning Fist cannot become nauseated if hit by Stunning Fist again), but additional hits do increase the duration.

    Tattoos of Power (Sp): A tattooed monk begins the game with his arms, legs, back, stomach, chest, and perhaps even his neck and face, covered with brilliantly colored exquisite tattoos. These tattoos have been inked onto the tattooed monk’s skin over the years that he spent in the monastery. As the tattooed monk grows in experience, he may select individual tattoos; this allows him to access their powers.
    Starting at 1st level, a tattooed monk possesses a single Tier 1 tattoo of power. At each additional level gained in this class thereafter, one of the dozens of tattoos that cover the character’s body gains a magic property. The monk can select any of the magic tattoos listed below, so long as he is of sufficient level to activate the selected tattoo. At 4th level, the tattooed monk gains access to Tier 2 tattoos, in addition to Tier 1. At 7th level, and every three levels gained thereafter, the tattooed monk can select tattoos from a progressively higher Tier, to a maximum of Tier 6 tattoos of power at 16th level.
    A magic tattoo must be activated in order to be used. Unless otherwise specified in the tattoo description below, each tattoo requires a standard action to activate. As a free action, the tattooed monk can spend 1 ki point from his ki pool (see below) in order to then activate a tattoo as a swift action.
    If the tattoo has an effect that requires an opponent to make a saving throw, the DC for that saving throw is 10 + the level of the Tattoo + the tattooed monk’s Wisdom modifier. Magic tattoos are considered spell-like abilities. The level of the tattooed monk is the effective caster level for any effects listed.
    A tattooed monk may not selected the same tattooed multiple times.

    Evasion (Ex): At 2nd level or higher, a tattooed monk can avoid damage from many area-effect attacks. If a tattooed monk makes a successful Reflex saving throw against an attack that normally deals half damage on a successful save, he instead takes no damage. Evasion can be used only if the tattooed monk is unarmored and unencumbered. A helpless tattooed monk does not gain the benefit of evasion.

    Maneuver Training (Ex): At 3rd level, a tattooed monk uses his tattooed monk level in place of his base attack bonus when calculating his Combat Maneuver Bonus. Base attack bonuses granted from other classes are unaffected and are added normally.

    Ki Pool (Su): At 4th level, a tattooed monk gains a pool of ki points, supernatural energy he can use to accomplish amazing feats. The number of points in a tattooed monk’s ki pool is equal to one-half his tattooed monk level + his Wisdom modifier. As long as he has at least 1 point his ki pool, he can make a ki strike. At 4th level, ki strike allows his unarmed attacks to be treated as magic weapons for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. Ki strike improves with the character’s tattooed monk level. At 10th level, his unarmed attacks are also treated as lawful weapons for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. At 16th level, his unarmed attacks are treated as adamantine weapons for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction and bypassing hardness.
    By spending 1 point from his ki pool, a tattooed monk can make one additional attack at his highest base attack bonus when making a flurry of blows attack. In addition, he can spend 1 point to increase his speed by 20 feet for 1 round. Finally, a tattooed monk can spend 1 kit point to gain a +4 dodge bonus to AC for 1 round. These bonuses (additional attack, extra speed, and dodge bonus) do not stack the bonuses provided by the spell haste, or similar effects and abilities.
    A tattooed monk may gain additional powers form his tattoos that consume ki points as he gains levels.
    The ki pool is replenished each morning after 8 hours of rest or meditation; these hours do not need to be consecutive.

    Quivering Palm (Su): Starting at 15th level, a tattooed monk can set up vibrations within the body of another creature that can thereafter be fatal if the tattooed monk so desires. He can use this quivering palm attack once per day, and he must announce his intent before making his attack roll. Creatures immune to critical hits cannot be affected. Otherwise, if the tattooed monk strikes successfully and the target takes damage from the blow, the quivering palm attack succeeds. Thereafter, the tattooed 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 his tattooed monk level. To make such an attempt, the tattooed monk merely wills the target to die (a free action), and unless the target makes a Fortitude saving throw (DC 10 + one-half the tattooed monk’s level + the tattooed monk’s Wisdom 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. A tattooed monk can have no more than 1 quivering palm in effect at one time. If a monk uses quivering palm while another is still in effect, the previous effect is negated.

He no longer accrues any penalties to his physical ability scores, but this tattoo does not remove penalties he has previously gained. In addition, the character needs only two hours of meditation each night (rather than 8 hours of sleep) to rest and regain his abilities, and he no longer requires food or water to survive.

After using plane shift, the tattooed monk instinctively knows which direction the closest town, village, or city lies, but not the distance.

    Shining Star: A character with the shining star tattoo becomes a magical creature. He is forevermore treated as an outsider rather than as a humanoid (or whatever the tattooed monk’s creature type was) for the purpose of spells and magical effects. Additionally, the tattooed monk gains damage reduction (DR/magic and chaotic) equal to one-half his tattooed monk class, which allows him to ignore the first 10 points of damage from any attack made by a nonmagical, nonchaotic weapon or by any natural attack made by a creature that doesn’t have similar damage reduction. Unlike other outsiders, the tattooed monk can still be brought back from the dead as if he were a member of his previous creature type. This tattoo is always active.

    Hi masterarminas. Not present for your Greychat discussions but addressing your "fluff" query, initially I assumed that the class derives from the Suhfeng, but going down the list made me wonder if Olman affiliated with Kulkulcan (Quetzacoatl) might similarly be well represented by it.

    Hi masterarminas. Not present for your Greychat discussions but addressing your "fluff" query, initially I assumed that the class derives from the Suhfeng, but going down the list made me wonder if Olman affiliated with Kulkulcan (Quetzacoatl) might similarly be well represented by it.


    Really had no idea where it would have hailed from. It is just something I wanted to do, and then fill in the fluff!
