Way of the Shackled Beast: Monastic Tradition of Eberron


Channel the beast within with this monastic tradition made by the shifters of Eberron!

During the 50-year purge of lycanthropy by the Church of the Silver Flame, a shifter monk named Zev Jhaxos was wrongly accused and sentenced to months in an Aundarian purification camp. Scrawled into the walls of his cell was found the doctrine of his way.

Monks of the Way of the Shackled Beast learn to manipulate the beast bound within themselves and within others until no bonds may hold them.

Mechanically, the subclass adds jumping benefits to the already superior mobility of the monk class, along with some unique options suited to those with shifters in the parties of their Eberron campaign.

Class Features

Beast Strike - Use the tactics of a wolf to increase the damage of your unarmed strikes and knock opponents to the ground.

Disrupting Strike - Punch the werewolf out of them! Use your stunning strike to end shapeshifting abilities and spells on your target.

Fierce Mind - Call on the ferocity of the beast within to end fear effects on you or your allies.

Fear No Bonds - Mastery of your physical form lets you escape grapples and shackles with ease.

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.
