Way of the Clouds[edit]

"I am the wind... And the wind, you cannot kill."

Monks of the Way of the Clouds learn techniques from gazing at the heavens and seeking to translate the beauty of a cloud-filled sky into a deadly art.

Cloud Lance Technique

Starting when you choose this tradition at 3rd level, you learn how to gather the power of the winds and use them to blast your enemies. At the start of your turn, you may spend 1 ki point to perform the cloud lance technique. When you do so, the reach of your unarmed strikes and monk weapons increases by 10 feet, and your unarmed strikes and monk weapons deal 1d6 additional wind damage on a hit.

Leap of the Clouds

Light as a cloud, you are able to make awe-inspiring leaps. Beginning at 3rd level, you gain a jumping speed equal to your walking speed.

Gentle Barrier of Wind

At 6th level, you gain the ability to passively deflect arrows, bullets, and other ballistae. You have resistance to damage from ranged attacks. If you use your Patient Defense, you become immune to damage from nonmagical ranged attacks until the start of your next turn.

Greater Cloud Lance Technique

At 11th level, your cloud lance technique becomes drastically more powerful. When you use it, the reach of your unarmed strikes and monk weapons increases by 15 additional feet (25 feet total), and the amount of bonus wind damage increases to 2d6.

Cloud Castle

Once you reach 17th level, you gain the ability to make solid clouds which can fly or hover at your command and bear the weight of many individuals. As an action, you can spend 5 ki points to create a 60-foot radius cloud which moves according to your mental directions, flying at a speed of 60 feet. The cloud remains for 1 hour or until you dismiss it as a bonus action. As a bonus action, you can command the cloud to pour rain in a 60-foot radius cylinder directly underneath it, or order it to stop raining. The rain is clean, drinkable water and doesn't go bad; you can produce up to 1,131 cubic inches of rain per round, which amounts to 1 inch of rainfall per minute. Such a quantity of rain would leave the area heavily obscured for the duration.
