Ninja are secretive warriors from feudal Japan. Trained to be agile and dexterous these warriors have no problem moving around the battlefield and surprising opponents with different techniques and tricks to secure the kill. Claimed by many to be dishonourable, the Ninja follow their own code, to do their job by any means necessary. What is frowned at by others for dishonourable conduct, would be forgiven in the Ninja way if it was the only way to get the Job done.

You can roll a d4 in place of the normal damage of your unarmed strike or monk weapon. This die changes to a d6 at level 4 and a d8 at level 8, . When you use the Attack action with an unarmed strike or a martial weapon on your turn, you can make one unarmed strike as a bonus action.

The summoned animal will help you in battle and there's not many differences between the two. They will have +2 from all of your abilities, skills, proficiencies and AC but +10 of your current hit points. The summoned animals will have 3d8 bludgeoning damage.

Rapid Escape[edit]

Once combat begins, that creature will become confused (see homebrew condition "Confused") for 1d6 hours.

Pit Lord[edit]

At level 20 you become the devil's own weapon of destruction. Now, at will, you may choose to spend an action to turn into a Pit Fiend for 1d6 minutes.
