Warrior Monk/Nun

Monks start the game with 2 additional levels in the alertness, athletics, concentration, dodge, and find weakness skills, and 1 additional level in the healing, literacy, and stealth. Also, further levels in these skills are less expensive than normal. Typical starting items for a monk are: clothes, a quarterstaff, and leather boots (this varies depending on race). Unlike most other melee classes monks do not start with any weapon skills, even in unarmed combat.

Unarmed attacks initially deal 1d5, 1d6, 1d9 damage for small, medium, and large creatures respectively. The damage die increases by 1 every level. Monks gain +1% critical chance with unarmed attacks every 3rd level. Monks get +1 to their unarmed damage every 4th level. At every even numbered level monks gain +1 to speed. At every odd numbered level monks gain +1 to unarmed attack power. Monks gain +1 DV at every level except at levels 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, etc. Monks lose their bonuses to DV and speed while burdened or more encumbered, using a shield, or when using armor other than clothing, rags, loincloths, or elven chain mail. Monks suffer no penalties from using weapons and can still use unarmed attacks while wielding a weapon via the kick command. Below is the table of unarmed combat bonuses for the first 20 levels.
