Aedelric Posted October 4, 2012 Share Posted October 4, 2012 (edited) To stop derailing the other topic, we can discuss the pro and con's of the Monk class here. Personally I am completely against a stereotyped Asian kung-fu fighter with spiritual overtones. The archetype has been done over and over again, in many varying settings and in most cases when set within a high fantasy medieval world it often feels and looks out of place. How can this be addressed? In European culture monks traditional are peaceful, tend herb gardens and wear habits dedicating their lives to god. But the crusades changed that and we had the likes of Hospitilars, warrior monks who took vows to fight zealously for god and heal the wounded. A much more likeable monk archetype in my opinion. Are you for kung-fu monks or against? Edit - Good suggestion was flagellants. Edited October 4, 2012 by Aedelric 9 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
