(Original Concept by Elginn Lightbringer)

Primary Class: Monk.

Secondary Class: Sorcerer.

Alignment: Any.

Hit Dice: d8.

Bonus Skills and Ranks: The mystic striker may select three sorcerer skills to add to her class skills in addition to the normal monk class skills. The mystic striker gains a number of ranks at each level equal to 2 + Int modifier.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: The mystic striker is proficient with all simple weapons, plus kama, nunchaku, sai, shortspear, short sword, shuriken, siangham, and temple sword*. The mystic striker is not proficient with any armor or shields. When wearing armor, using a shield, or carrying a medium or heavy load, a mystic striker loses her AC bonus, fast movement, and flurry of blows abilities, as well as interfering with her bloodline arcanum. (*Advanced Player’s Guide)

Bloodline: A mystic striker gains the sorcerer bloodline class ability and may choose from any of the bloodlines listed in the Core Rulebook, Advanced Players Guide, Ultimate Magic, or any other Pathfinder source. She adds the skill listed in her bloodline to her class skills, and also gains her first bloodline power and each subsequent power at the indicated level, as shown on Table: Mystic Striker.

At 4th level, the mystic striker adds her first bloodline spell to her list of mystic arcanum spells as a 1st-level spell. At 8th level she adds her second bloodline spell as a 2nd-level mystic arcanum spell. At 12th level she adds her third bloodline spell as a 3rd-level mystic arcanum spell. At 16th level she adds her fourth bloodline spell as a 4th-level mystic arcanum spell. At 20th level she adds her fifth bloodline spell as a 5th-level mystic arcanum spell.

The mystic striker does not gain her bloodline arcana. She does not gain her bloodline bonus feats, but she can select any feat listed in her bloodline feats as a normal feat gained due to level advancement, even if she does not qualify for it. This ability replaces the bonus feat gained at 1st level, maneuver training, still mind, slow fall, high jump, wholeness of body, abundant step, diamond body, diamond soul, quivering palm, empty body, tongue of the sun and the moon, and perfect self.
