Kirai Monks In the World
Kirai Monks make excellent additions to any campaign that incorporates use of The Force. However, they can be suited to fit any campaign. Perhaps instead of the Force, they instead focus on attaining power through drawing magic from The Weave. Or perhaps they are traditional monks who have harnessed their Chi in different ways. Regardless, they can be adapted to almost any campaign setting.
