Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Scales awfully. Gains a fighting style, darkvision, and unrestricted third casting all at 3rd level. Then, magical darkvision and EXPANDED CRIT RANGE. Then you get EK weapon bonding which deals slightly more damage, and then an 11th level monk feature. Features should be trimmed, moved, or otherwise replaced.

At level 3, you also gain dark vision out to 90 ft.

Embrace of shadows

At level 9, you gain the ability to see in all darkness, whether magical or mundane out to 90 ft. Also at level 9 your weapon attacks score a critical hit on a roll of 19 or 20.

Shadow Weapon

At level 13, you may bond a weapon to yourself, through a 1 hour long ritual. As a bonus action, you can summon the weapon from the shadows and dismiss it as a free action.

A weapon bonded to yourself in this manner also deals 1d10 psychic damage to a target on a hit.
