The monk is the silent warrior of martial arts. With his hands alone, he is able to harm his enemies using ancient techniques of fighting known only to his order. Very few weapons, however, are made specifically for monks in order for them to fight creatures of a magical nature. To regain his Strength, a monk may enter a meditative trance while fighting. A monk may also concentrate to focus his mental energy on his opponent. This makes him hit his targets easier. At higher levels, his power is such that he may touch his enemy, sending mystic vibrations throughout his target's body. This can severely damage and even fatally wound his opponent. The monks of Derlith owe allegiance to no one, wandering the land with the soul purpose of seeking enlightenment.

Abilities: Meditate, Focus, Touch of Death, Kick
