===Monk===
Description: Monks are the agile and graceful masters of their own bodies. Combining quick reflexes with intense study of the martial arts makes them a powerful and intimidating opponent. Although Monks may use weapons, most of their power and unique ability comes when they are completely unarmed. And since they depend so heavily on their agility, they will find themselves wearing only light cloth armors.

How to play: Either alone or in groups, the Monk is a dizzying class to play. Capable of more pure attacks than any other class, and loaded down with dozens of Monk-specific physical feats makes the Monk almost mage-like in complexity. In fact, the player who loathes worrying about staying up-to-date on equipment, but who enjoys the pure fight may be especially attracted to Monk.

Like all fighters, the Monk will gain experience principally through the vanquishing of foes. Although the armor restriction can seem daunting, the Monks extra dexterity bonus to armor, and the wide variety of attacks and defences makes them every bit as powerful (if not much more) than the other fighter classes.
