A couple of questions about the Monk class from the Wanderers expansion:
At 1st level, it says that they cannot carry weapons and armor. But they don’t get the Martial Artist benefit until 2nd level. So, for their entire 1st level, the monk suffers a -1D to all combat for fighting unarmed? I know 1st level doesn’t always last very long, but that seems kind of steep. Also, at 5th level, the Master ability states “When unarmed or when weilding a staff,”. If a monk cannot carry a weapon, how can he weild a staff?
What is the benefit of changing a nature descriptor then taking one of the vows? Most of the vows are pretty restricting, especially if the only change you can make so far is to Fasting. Short of using your Nature for…something…while Hungry and Thirsty, I see no benefit at all.
