The Monk

This monk, for AD&D 2nd Edition, is inspired by Hong Kong style kung fu movies and the excellent RPGs drawn from them. The AD&D monk has always been, to be fair, pretty lame. The selection of powers was fixed and uninteresting. This monk takes the spell-slot framework of a priest but replaces spells of faith with chi powers, powered by the monk's own discipline and inner fortitude. I think you'll like the result.
