Nature Path Monk

The Nature Path Monks are one of the most unique types of Monks. In part because they need to have True Spellcasting ability (the ability to sense or see magic) to take this. Without that they can’t make use of this classes abilities. Unlike all other spellcasters however, they directly effect magical energy rather than forming it into proper spells. This has lead to some heated debates with other kinds of True Spellcasters who feel these monks ‘do it wrong’.

Abilities

  • Level 3
    • Nature Blast
      • As a standard action, the Monk can unleash a blast of energy or matter at a single target up to a range of 30 feet. They must have at least one hand free to aim the blast (or one prehensile appendage, if they don’t have hands). When you take this you select the element which the attack uses, which decides it’s damage type. Nature Path Elements lists these types. Damage is 2d6 + Con Modifier. This is treated like a Cantrip in that it can be used once per round and doesn’t require any limited resource to use, however it’s instant and so treated like a normal melee or ranged attack rather than a spell.
    • Natural Defense
      • You gain a ability which mirrors a shield in function though is composed of the element of your choice from the Nature Blast ability. It applies +2 to your AC just like a shield and can be used as a shield for your reaction. It also provides disadvantage against ranged attacks as it is composed of a swirl of energy or force around you.
