Light-Guardians, Grey-Knights, and Dark-Force Monks. 3 Monk subclasses of Force Users for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition


A Long Time Ago, in a Realm Far Far away...

Light, Grey, and Dark. Followers of these monastic traditions believe that Ki is a living energy they refer to as The Ki-Force or simply, The Force. Three monastic traditions and orders have formed around this practice, aach using The Force in different ways.

The three traditions take on three different approaches to how a Monk interacts with the Force. When a Monk commits to the code of their order, they are employing the training, techniques and morals taught to them by many masters who have come before them.

These 3 monk subclasses allow your characters to make their own versions of force-wielding monks. They tie in a characters's alignment and choices to follow the code of their order, in a way similar way to a Paladin's Oath. As their character progresses they can choose to deviate from the teachings of their order to adopt skills and abilities which befits the character as they grow. A Light-Guardian Monk can be seduced to the Dark power of the Force, and vice versa. 

Also Includes 3 new feats, to improve your force-wielding characters even further!

Still reading through, but the Force Choke description is missing, it just has a title and the level it's gained at. Also, I don't think reading alignment is very 5e friendly. No other class or spell can determine an alignment.

Also, Lingering Soul is a little op. Why bother with death saves if you can't die? There has to be a big negative to failing death saves and still coming back to life. If I use this document, I'll have to rework that one for sure.

Hi Darren, thanks for the feedback, sorry for the delay in reply. I have re-formatted the document to show the Force Choke, and also reworded the Sense Aura to make it more in-line with an insight check. Finally for Lingering soul I agree it does invalidate the death saves, I have extended the time to return to the body into weeks rather than hours, with a penalty to what that body would actually look like. I was going for the effect seen in later films so hopefully this ties in closer to that. Let me know what you think!

Thanks for fixing that. I'd change my star rating to a 4 if it would allow me. (I just tried)

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.
