Way of the Jeskai[edit]

The way of the Jeskai is a Monk subclass that focuses on the teachings of the great dragon Ojutai (this is based on the Magic The Gathering clan from the Tarkir block)

The Jeskai, above the rest in their mountain monasteries, serve as Tarkir's memory, keeping records of the tales, secrets, and truths that might otherwise pass into the tumult of history.

Ojutai's first lesson

The first thing Ojutai teaches you is how to fight properly, and with determination. Starting when you choose this subclass at 3rd level, you gain proficiency in all martial weapons that do not have the heavy quality. These weapons are now considered monk weapons. Alternatively, instead of all non-heavy martial weapons, you can choose any 4 martial weapons, heavy or not, with which to gain proficiency and consider monk weapons.

Ojutai's second lesson

Ojutai's second lesson is how to channel your Ki to use magic. At 6th level, you learn the Ray of frost & blade ward cantrips. See Chapter 10 of the Player's Handbook for rules of spellcasting. You use Wisdom as your spellcasting ability.

Ojutai's third lesson

Now that you have learned your magic, Ojutai begins the third lesson. After intense training, Ojutai bestows upon you the secret of flight. at 11th level you may spend 4 ki points to gain a flying speed equal to your most natural way of travel's speed for 1 hour. This is the walking speed for almost all player characters, but could be something else, such as your swimming speed if you play an aquatic race.

Ojutai's Final lesson

As your training draws to a close, the Great Dragon bestows upon you one final secret. At 17th level, whenever you hit with your unarmed strike or a monk weapon, you may spend 1 ki to deal additional cold damage equal to one martial arts die.
