<Monk Subclass

Some Monks choose to walk the Way of the Blitz, a difficult path of intense physical and mental training. The end result of this training is an unrivaled ability to utilize one's own Ki energy into immense attacks capable of devastating foes. These seemingly magical attacks are known as, “Blitz’s” and each one requires a great deal of study to understand and even more training to be able to execute. The way how these are described to be seen by others is a red and orange aura forming around the person dealing these fierce blows.


Blitz of Might At 3rd level you gain the ability to execute attacks as a Blitz, when you do this you channel Ki energy into mighty blows which deal massive damage. These are the two that you learn at level 3:

Raging Fist: Whenever you use the Flurry of Blows attack you may do an additional unarmed strike.

Aura Cannon: Using two Ki points, you can unleash an immense beam of Ki energy from your palms. This beam has a range of 40ft and the target must succeed a DEX save against your Ki save DC or they are hit by the beam and take 10d4+WIS force damage. This can be increased by a d4 for every additional Ki point used, up to your wisdom modifier.

Blitz of Fire At 6th level you gain the ability to execute two more types of Blitz’s, along with receiving a permanent +4 maximum Ki.

Meteor Strike: Using the power of Ki you can essentially perform a hyper powerful suplex upon your foe. This ability costs 3 Ki to perform and requires you to make a successful melee attack on the enemy. When you do this you lift the target up high into the air before bringing them down with great force, causing them to take 8d6+DEX or STR modifier. This can be increased by a d6 for every additional Ki point used, up to your wisdom modifier.

Rising Phoenix: Unleashing the inner Phoenix inside of you allows you to use Ki energy to burn your enemies with a cleansing fire. For 3 Ki points you can release an intense fire from your palms in a 30ft cone in front of you. This fire does not affect allies however, and every hostile must succeed a DEX save against your Ki ability modifier or they take 5d6+WIS modifier fire damage. On a success they take half damage. This can be increased by a d6 for every additional Ki point used, up to your wisdom modifier.

Blitz of Soul At 11th level you learn two new Blitz’s and receive another +4 to your maximum Ki points.

Chakra: At the cost of 4 Ki points you can release the energy of your Chakras and use it to give strength to those fighting with you. Up to your Wisdom Modifier +1 (minimum 1) allies you can see heal health equal to half your current hit points.

Razor Gale: By unleashing a mighty wave of Ki energy from your fists you can create cutting winds which tear your enemies to shreds. At the cost of 4 Ki points all enemies within sight line must make a CON saving throw against your Ki save DC or take 4d6+WIS modifier magic damage. On a success they take half damage, only on a natural 20 do they avoid damage entirely.

Blitz of Power At 17th level your Blitz abilities reach their peak, with the ability to use Ki energy to rushdown opponents and crush them in combat using the energy residing inside yourself. You learn the ultimate Blitz technique and add +2 to your maximum Ki points.

Phantom Rush: Using 6 points of Ki energy you can move to attack an enemy so fast that it appears as though you have clones yourself and are attacking from all sides. Make 2d6+WIS modifier unarmed melee attacks that all count both as magical and ignore magic resistances. This is the Ultimate Blitz Technique that can be learned.
