Way of the Forgiven[edit]

Monk Subclass

People find themselves dedicated to monastic traditions through a variety of means. Some seek it out as a means to achieve perfection of body or purity of thought. Others seek to master secret fighting techniques. Others are forced into monasteries through orphanages or even selection from a lottery. The very rare enter the tradition seeking absolution, and of those, only a few emerge as the Forgiven.

The Forgiven are at peace with who and what they are. They have accepted themselves and their place within the multiverse. While not always forgiven by society, the Forgiven have achieved absolution from the most critical of judges: themselves. Because of this, they have mastered mindfulness of themselves, and, in very advanced students, of others.

Ripples on the Water

When you pick this Monastic Tradition at 3rd level, you are able to sense thoughts, and quell them. You may use 2 ki to cast the calm emotions or detect thoughts, using Wisdom as your spellcasting ability.


Your kind soul has brought you closer to understanding others. At 6th level, you permanently have advantage on Insight checks.


At 11th level, while you are affecting a creature with either of the spells granted by Ripples on the Water, if they try to target you or another creature of your choice with a harmful effect, they must make a Wisdom saving throw versus your Ki Save DC, or the attack fails instantly. If they have been attacked by you or one of these creatures you chose, this does not take effect.

Oneness With The Universe

At 17th level, you can use an action, and spend 2 ki points. You gain a flight speed equal to your walking speed, immunity to piercing, slashing, and bludgeoning damage from non-magical weapons, and you can freely move through objects and creatures without penalty. However, this has to be maintained, and at the start of your turn while you can still do this, you lose 2 ki points, until you end it as an action.
