Unchained Monks of Porphyra


This book shows you the way of the monks of Porphyra. New options and themes for monks allow you as a player or as a GM to add flavor to your monastic characters.

This includes

7 monk archetypes:
-the descendant, who can use and control his ancestral powers.
-the firefall monk, bomb-throwing specialist.
-the flying monk, whose mobility is so great one could believe he is… flying.
-the martial virtuoso, a monk who decided to master many fighting styles and combine them efficiently.
-the naginata master, who masters reach weapons like no one.
-the pinyinist, who learned how to open his organs’ meridians for extraordinary benefits.
-the void monk, whose mind is the purest form of meditation.

2 prestige classes
-the grasshopper, a monk specialized in kicks to the extent that his whole fighting style revolves around jumping and kicking.
-the wild master, a druidic monk who mastered his body control while in bestial shape, so that he can perform martial arts while transformed.

7 new ki powers: Arsenal Mastery, Blood Ki, Ki Sight, Major Meridian, Meridian, Wall Runner and Weapon Specialization.
5 new styles, called imperial styles: The Forest style, the Sea Style, the Sky Style, the Sovereign Style and the Underworld Style, all usable by monks and other martial characters.
8 other feats designed for monks

These numerous options will please those who are in need of new ideas for their monk characters, and may even tempt players who don’t like monks with new twists or themes.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
