Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: A lot of these abilities would on their own make a powerful feat. An extra 50% ki points, extra unarmed damage, etc. This needs serious balancing.

You can help D&D Wiki by better balancing the mechanics of this page. When the mechanics have been changed so that this template is no longer applicable please remove this template. If you do not understand balance please leave comments on this page's talk page before making any edits.

Expansion of the Body

Prerequisites: Constitution 15, Wisdom 15
Upon gaining this feat, you further your understanding of Ki.

  • The amount of ki points you gain is equal to half your overall level, rounded up. Your ki save is 8 + your proficiency bonus + your wisdom modifier. If you have a monk ability requiring a save already, you gain no change to your save.
  • Tampering with your body's limits has caused your unarmed strikes to increase its damage by one damage die.[1d2>1d4>1d6>1d8>1d10>1d12>2d8](if you already have a damage die for unarmed strike, it is increased by one further.)
  • If you are a monk, you make an additional unarmed strike on your action turn if you choose to attack. This feature adds to the extra attack feat, but only if all attacks on that action are made with unarmed strikes.
  • Monks may also add another attack roll on fury of blows at the cost of gaining a level of exhaustion, due to pushing your body's limits.
  • If you are not a monk, your unarmed strike is 1d6 and you may choose one feature from each list:

1. Deflect Missiles, Stunning Strike, Slow Fall. (Due to 'slow fall' being focused on monk level, this feat will be based on 1/2 your character level rounded down.)

2.Unarmored Defense, Evasion. (If your character already has Evasion from another class, the effect does not stack and you must choose Unarmored Defense. Unarmored Defense is equal to 10 + your Dexterity modifier + your Wisdom modifier.)
