Monastic Tradition

Way of the Mystic Force


You understand that ki is just one of many types of energy that permeate through the universe, and your control of your own ki allows you to tap into this all-encompassing force as well. You can manipulate this energy to various effects, such as levitating objects with telekinesis or even coallescing ki into blades of pure energy.

Mystical Arts

Starting when you choose this tradition at 3rd level, you gain proficiency in longswords and they are considered monk weapons for you.

Additionally, you gain the ability to finely manipulate the energy field that exists between all things, using your ki to create various effects. You can use an action to telekinetically manipulate an object, open an unlocked door or container, stow or retrieve an item from an open container, or pour the contents out of a vial. You can control an object within 30 feet of you in this way, and move it 30 feet at a time as part of your action. You can't manipulate objects weighing more than 10 pounds, and can only manipulate one object at a time. An object immediately falls when you stop controlling it.

Your control over ki also allows you to duplicate the effects of certain spells. As an action. you can spend ki points to cast catapult, detect thoughts, levitate, suggestion, or thunderwave without providing verbal or material components. The number of ki points you must spend to cast a spell is equal to the spell's level.

When you reach 5th level in this class, you can spend additional ki points to increase the level of a mystical art spell that you cast, provided that the spell has an enhanced effect at a higher level, as catapult does. The spell’s level increases by 1 for each additional ki point you spend. The maximum number of ki points (its base ki point cost plus any additional points) that you can spend on the spell is 2. This maximum increases to 3 at 9th level, 4 at 13th level, and 5 at 17th level.

Once you reach 17th level in this class you can also cast telekinesis as a mystical art spell.

Ki Sword

At 6th level, as an action you can spend 1 ki point to generate a longsword of luminous energy in your free hand. The weapon is a monk weapon for you, and it deals force damage in place of its normal damage.

Greater Discipline

At 11th level, when you use Mystical Arts to duplicate the effects of a spell, you can spend 1 or more ki points at the time you cast the spell to increase its range. The spell's range increases by 10 feet for each additional ki point spent. Additionally, while you are concentrating on a spell, before it would end as a result of reaching its max duration, you can spend a number of ki points equal to the spell's level to extend the duration. The additional duration is equal to the spell's normal duration.

Spending ki points with this feature counts against the maximum number of ki points you can spend on a spell for your level.



































Meditation

At 17th level, as an action you can spend a ki point to enter a meditative state. While in this trance you are incapacitated and restrained, though you remain aware of your surroundings as normal. You can remain in this state for as long as you wish.

Meditating in this way allows you to calm your mind and heal your body. You can spend 1 hit die to regain hit points for every minute you spend meditating in this way, without having to spend a short rest.

You can use a bonus action on subsequent turns to end the trance, ending the incapacitated and restrained conditions on yourself. When you do, you can spend 1 ki point to open yourself to the mystical energies of the cosmos. Until the end of your next turn, you are considered to be under the effects of the foresight spell. You can spend a ki point on subsequent turns to cause this effect to persist until the end of your next turn, up to a maximum number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier.

Once you use this feature, you can't do so again until you finish a long rest.
