The Monitor[edit]

In time...even the sun will die. Until then...I will content myself with your demise

Kuo-Toans are a depressing group to hang with at the best of times. Their relentless downbeat attitude can turn even the most festive of occasions into a dirge. But perhaps the most depressing of all Kuo-Toa are the Monitors. These monks of Kuo-Toa society are dedicated to a strict regimen of martial training and meditation on the complete futility of all things. Discussions with Monitors have been known to drive even other Kuo-Toa to suicide.

Becoming a Monitor[edit]

Monitors are not happy people. They are utterly depressed, and the only thing that keeps most of them from lashing out at the world is their complete ambivalance towards it. One who can be roused to action, though, is someone to be feared.

Class Features[edit]

All of the following are class features of the Monitor.

Fighting Style (Su): The Monitor gains a Fighting Style as a Monk (DnD Class) at first level.

Armored in Life (Ex): Levels of Monitor stack with levels in Monk (DnD Class) for the purposes of the Monk's Armored in Life ability.

Powerful Observation (Ex): A Monitor adds his class level as a bonus to his Spot and Sense Motive checks.

Strike the Intangible (Su): At 2nd level, a Monitor gains the ability to strike the invisible creatures he can see. His natural weapon attacks can hurt incorporeal and ethereal targets without a miss chance related to intangibility

Master Fighting Style (Su): At 3rd, 5th, and 7th level a Monitor gains a Master Fighting Style, as a Monk (DnD Class)

Wait For Death (Su): A Monitor looks forward only to death, but this can be a very long wait indeed. A Monitor of 4th level does not age, sleep, need nutrition, or breathe. Furthermore, a Monitor of 4th level no longer loses hit points when he has 0 hit points or less

Depressing Monologue (Su): Any creature that speaks to a 6th level Monitor for more than five minutes must make a Willpower Save (DC 10 + ½ hit dice + Charisma Modifier) or be affected by abject despair and curse of crumbling conviction.

Sticky Hands (Ex): A Monitor of 8th level makes great use of sticky Kuo-Toa secretions and gains a +4 bonus on Disarm tests, whether he is the attacker or the defender.

Apathy (Su): At 8th level, a Monitor is able to draw upon supernatural reserves of ennui and ambivalence, rendering him immune to mind affecting effects.

Grandmaster Fighting Style (Su): At 9th level, a Monitor gains a Grand Master Fighting Style as a Monk.
