    Dear /tg/

    Would it be too farfetched for a variant on monk to exist? Allow me to explain. My monk character will be Lawful Neutral and follow an old and ancient code as many do. But where as most martial artists follow sacred enlightened texts, he follows the path of GENTLEMANLINESS. So thus he seeks to go among the world of ruffians and train his pugilistic arts, possibly having many a kerfuffle.

    I see nothing wrong with this idea. In fact I find it most awesome. But remember, to take Combat Reflexes for additional attacks of opportunity, then take Combat Expertise and Dodge so you can take Karmic Strike. That way when you know your about to get hit you can 'CROSS COUNTER!'

    Assuming you mean Prestidigitation (it was called Cantrip in older editions): Use activated wonderous item, caster level 1, spell level 0 (treated as 0.5) = 1,000 GP for an item that lets you cast Prestidigitation at will.

    If you just want it to be useable at will and all it does is clean you and your clothes off, comb your hair for you, and straighten your mustache (or curl, as desired), then I'd call it a 500 GP item, myself, but by the book you can't do that.

    I'd use the Monk of the Empty Hand Archetype, and not stat his cane at all - just leave it as a cane, and treat it as an improvised weapon (which could also include his bolwer's hat, his monacle, pocketwatch and fob, or even a pair of gloves). This gives him the ability to use flurry of blows ith his 'weapons', magical empowerment of his 'weapons', and can also let him do his unarmed strike damage with his weapons as well. Take a vow of cleanliness (A tidy person is a person who lives an orderly life!) and a vow of truth (A Gentleman's WORD, my friends, is never in doubt!) to increase his ki pool.

    the swordsage monk ACF doesn't give him the monks martial weapons if i recall proper. Only his Unarmed Strike Progression. However, Swordsage monk is best monk. A funny trick would be to take Exotic weapons Master ( walking cane ) just a two level dip if you get my drift. And throw anything will lead to some hilarious situations.

    It was a crisp sunday morning, and Percival Winthrop Orrington was enjoying his the end of his brunch with a particularly well made cup of tea for this region, which he made strict note to ask the innkeeper what leaf was used and to leave a well deserved tip. As he sipped, his companion, a lecherous rogue finally awoke and descended the inn's stairs. A vulgar, if not useful, wretch if Percival had ever met one.

    "Oi, Percy, wot 'ave ye got there?"

    "Please refrain from calling me "Percy", if you would. And this is is a cup of tea, sir."

    "Wot ye drinkin' tea fer Percy? Ye ain't summun's mum fer cryin out...."

    Vulgar. Yet as the unclean man walked towards the door, a particularly large man stood up, with two others brandishing clubs.

    "We've been waiting for you, bastard! You slept with my daughter!"

    The rogue backed away slowly, hand on a shortsword at his hip. as the men in front of him tried to circle around him.

    This was twice that the rogue had disheveled a maiden's virtue whilst travelling together. And again, Percival stood up.

    "Gentlemen. I understand your feelings towards my companion, and you are certianly entitled to redeem the honor of your daughter. However, my companion would surely attempt to harm you further than the situation calls for. If I could intervene on his behalf, perhaps fisticuffs could satisfy you..."

    The tea would have to wait. For friends, even foul friends, must be protected.

From then on he went around making deals to get more different beers for his bar, and even got another bar. Our DM even gave him a golem after we managed to talk it onto our side and replace its hand with a mug.

    > alcoholic dwarven

    you can just say dwarf, the alcoholism is implied.

    I hope your bar was called the MineShaft

    because you could forge that sexual tension there into a very gay axe.

    SO nowdays monks turned from reference to disciplined and ascetic shaolin warriors to anyone who fights unarmed - martial artists, thugs, and drunken irish.

    This concept amuses me. I can see Dudley running around various games saying "gutta trash".
    >> Anonymous 07/05/11(Tue)07:34 No.15480098
    I propose that we use Dudley in the same way the WWE uses Stone Cold Steve Austin. Whenever the story runs flat, Dudley shows up and beats up everyone for not being gentlemanly enough, just like Stone Cold shows up and Stunners everyone.

    Dammit, add a gentlemanly outdoorsman (ranger) for a character I want to play if I ever play D&D again. The list of crazy characters just keep on growing. I've had the luchador even before I read about El Tiburon, then there's the vampire for 4th Edition, an artificer that makes guns out of everything and plenty of other ones I can't think of right now.

    Mr. Raffles is pretty much a D&D character and you know it.

    I would love to see the various effects a gentleman monk would have on the people he tries diplomacy on. Noble ladies being swept off their feet, common ladies being left feeling like nobles even though they didn't understand what was said. Ruffians getting offended by this highfalutin pansy-speak or possibly being humbled into wanting to mend their ways, at least just this once. Merchants yelling boisterously to their surrounding patrons and competitors about how fine his product is that it attracted such a fine man of upstanding bearing, or straight freaking the fuck out when they get called on the poor craftsmanship of their product.

    OP enjoy!

    This build is not optimized. Nor is it perfect but it's fucking GENTLEMANLINESS. I didn't think this PC should have anything Lower then a 12. So based on 32 points it's hard to Optimize it but I think I am in a good spot

    Cool shit with this build.

    You can use ANYTHING as a weapon, from a glove to a walking stick, to your Monocle. Doing so does 4d8+4+1d4 an attack. Not bad? You can take 5 attacks.

    You can THROW ANYTHING. Same as above.

    You can't get drunk unless you DRINK a shit load of booze.
    You grant you allies plus's to their charisma checks..because a GENTLEMEN inspires competence.
    You can gamble like a mother fucker.
    You don't Age
    You Can Speak to anything. ( no really anything )
    You can jump stupid high for no reason.

    I am the same dude who build the Swifthunter Lizard, the Buffing Bard, and the sword chucking Samurai and the worlds most useless DnD character, and an Archivist in the last couple of days. If you have any questions Let me know.
    >> Anonymous 07/05/11(Tue)11:16 No.15481182

    Blah I should mention that the first two levels are Marshell taking Negotiation and dodge ( or Greater endurence you need both for Drunken Master) The auras are Presence ( major ) and Motivate charisma. You get Skill focus Diplo for free. Then three levels of monk and your 6th level is Drunken master. After that straight monk.
    the other feats you can take in any order but I suggest, Sup. Unarmed Strike and Imp Natural Attack asap.

    You do no need Force of personality I just think it's cool for fluff. It does give you a 26 will save to most will based spells. Brutal throw was a choice I took because I wanted to be more STR based. Even though Dex and STR are the same after magic items.

    there are two.

    either 20 fighter who takes the best melee feats and uses a crossbow

    of 20 , 1 dips into 0 bab classes while using a crossbow. Both are equally as bad. the 0 bab class has a ton of skills making him better.

    Any ideas what would be the best way to make a gentlemanly character in Dungeons the Dragoning 40k?

    For example, what alignment would be best?
    >> Anonymous 07/05/11(Tue)18:19 No.15484793
    I don't know anything about that particular game, but any Lawful alignment would probably work. Y'know, since you follow a strict code of gentlemanliness.

    It occurs to me that the Henshin Mystic PrC would be quite thematically appropriate for a gentleman monk. A number of the class abilities are quite apt for one who abhors dirty fighting -- it gains Uncanny Dodge (not by that name, but it's the same effect), Diamond Body (faster than you can get it going full monk), Blind Fight (and, at higher levels, BlindSIGHT). Plus the PrC levels stack with your monk levels for your unarmed damage, flurry of blows, speed increases, and AC bonus (not like the last one's worth much of anything, but just throwing it out there). And improves your ki strike (also kind of a lolbenefit, but hey).
    And you could probably refluff it as pursuing an ideal of dapperness rather than divinity...
