Skystrike Monk (Monk/Oracle)

By gazing at the sky and using it as a map to enlightenment and spiritual power, the skystrike monk learns to loosen his bonds with the earth and defy gravity itself. By transcending the power of his chosen mystery, this airborne combatant can channel the powers of the skies above as a means of gaining true spiritual power. (Original Concept by Tyrannical)

Primary Class: Monk.

Secondary Class: Oracle.

Alignment: Any lawful.

Hit Dice: d8.

Bonus Skills and Ranks: The skystrike monk selects three oracle skills to add to his class skills in addition to the normal monk class skills. The skystrike monk gains a number of ranks at each level equal to 4 + Int modifier.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: The skystrike monk is proficient with the chakram, dagger, dart, dart, flying talon, heavy crossbow, kunai, kyoketsu shoge, light crossbow, longbow, lungchuan tamo, rope dart, shortbow, shortspear, shuriken, starknife, tube arrow shooter, and wushu dart. The skystrike monk is not proficient with any armor or shields. When wearing armor, using a shield, or carrying a medium or heavy load, a skystrike monk loses his AC bonus, as well as his fast movement and flurry of blows abilities.

High Jump (Ex): The skystrike monk gains this ability at level 1 rather than level 5 as regular Monks do.

Sky Mystery: Through consistent meditation, the skystrike monk gains the use of a mystery linked to the forces unbound to the earth. He may pick the dark tapestry, heavens, lunar, solar, or wind mystery. A skystrike monk who becomes nonlawful loses all abilities tied to his mystery and cannot gain new levels as a skystrike monk, but retains all monk abilities.

Revelation: At 1st level, a skystrike monk gains the oracle’s revelation ability. At 1st level and again at 3rd level and every four levels thereafter, the skystrike monk may select a revelation from her chosen mystery, but is restricted from choosing the wings of darkness (dark tapestry mystery), lure of the heavens (heavens mystery), or the wings of air (wind mystery) revelations. This ability replaces still mind, purity of body, wholeness of body, diamond body, diamond soul, and timeless body.

Flurry of Blows (Ex): This is exactly like the monk ability of the same name, except that the skystrike monk uses the weapons she is proficient with instead of the normal monk weapons. This allows the skystrike monk to make a flurry of blows with ranged attacks, but muse focus on either ranged or melee combat each turn.

Bonus Feats: This is exactly like the monk ability of the same name, except that the skystrike monk must select his bonus feats from the following list: Combat Reflexes, Death From Above, Deflect Arrows, Dodge, Point Blank Shot, Precise Shot, Throw Anything.
