Magic Items for Monks


When I DM for Monk PCs, I feel like the core rulebooks don’t have a lot in the ways of rewards for Monks. This is, of course, partly because of the nature of monks who are not materially-minded, adhering to principles of self-denial, overcoming personal shortcomings, and looking within themselves for answers to their problems, rather than to magic items.  

With that in mind, I came up with the Ki Spirits, or Essences. They’re something only a monk would recognize the nature of, and be able to make use of. They may be found in faceted gemstones, or some other mundane object.

Also, I think it would be fun to play a more deviant kind of monk, with issues like Darth Vader, and powers like Akuma. I have named the Monk Archetype: The Way of Hatred. But, it could also be roleplayed as a more tragic figure, in which case, I prefer the name The Way of the Inner Demon.

Rules Edition(s)
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.
