    Im currently making a monk kit based entirely on scripts to learn how to script better(funny in a way, isnt it?) And i need some ideas for special abilities, bonuses, disadvantages, etc. Im not looking to make as some people would put it ' a Super-Uber Powerkit', but a blanced class/kit. Already I have set up a self-upgrading cloak, but im welcome to any comments or suggestions.

    Okay, monks rule first of all. You need to make sure that he has magic resistance, and a low AC. I might suggest giving him higher HP in exchange for one of his other abilities. I doubt it is possible, but don't you think a backstabbin' monk would be awesome. That is my two cents, if you don't want them can I have them back.

    I dont think Backstabbing is possible, or at least not to my knowlage. More Hp, that can be done, infact quite easially. As for the AC and Magic resistance, monks already have that and this wont take it away(unless i want it to).

    The high HP would be incredibly useful, but don't you think a monk who could backstab would be the best, like a X5 multiplier, sweet! Peace, and have fun making the cool new monk.

    OK, I have a script that keeps track of the character's level through the use of Globals. The only problem is when I try to add effects to the character useing these globals, I cannot compile the script. Anyone who has any ideas about fixing this please reply.

    How about making a LN multiclassed monk-thief, an absolutely reliable spy? Well, that's what I want to do with my halfling 3e monk ...

    Be sure to get the Gauntlets of Crushing, the reward you get from King Ixilthetocal in Sahuagin City. No weapon equals the +4 thac0 and +4 damage, for a monk.

    Rags, you're starting your Eternal Halfling Monk-saga?

    Why the fuss about more Hp? Just roll for a high Constitution?! ;)
    With a new monk kit i'd like to see a Martial Monk, who gets bonuses not only with fists, but with Martial weapons such as Staffs and Nunchucks (you know what i mean).

    Maybe reduce the amount of damage/thac0 you get with fists for this? only up to +2 or something.

    I'd also like to see the racial holds removed, allowing you to play gnomish or halfling monks, though it wasnt possible when i tried it.

    if you do make it, send it into SP for us all to enjoy.

    with love,
    yappie

    I'd love to see a Divine monk. Who has the ability to cast some minor cleric spells.

    Not quite Deano. :p

    He may use fighter kits to do it, only he'll have to attach some effects hardcoded for original monk, plus edit the BALDUR or DPLAYER2 script to handle the limitations and advantages and especially removing weapons/items from list ordinary monk cannot use - a big job, but possible.

    But yeah Deano, putting them in the Monk class is impossible. just like Sorcerer or Barbarian Classes. Which are practically kits on their own.

    i was technically correct. It isn't possible through normal measures in any case.

    [​IMG] Hows about that when creating, you must pick a single super-proficient weapon such as staff, or maybe wakazashi(?), or ninja-to which, when equipped, gives huge bonuses and special abilities, but penalises when using anything else (pick like rangers racial)
    I dont know if thats possible, because Im not so into these things, but that would be nice, as monks are into these martial/oriental things
