Monks are practitioners of ancient martial arts which allows them to be
lethal adversaries without the benefit of cumbersome weaponry. Their hands
and feet are deadly weapons in themselves, and monks are trained to use
their body in harmony with their minds to destroy their enemies. Monks are
required to be strong and nimble of body as well as very quick witted to
successfully practice their art. In addition to being formidable opponents
in hand-to-hand combat, monks have also mastered the ability to use certain
specialized "chants" in and out of battle. Their chants further enhance the
monk's abilities in and out of battle.
Monks are a remort class attainable only after proving themselves as
Clerics first by achieving 1000 epics, and offering 5,000 platinum
to the teacher Dada, for him to accept and train you as his new pupil.
Be careful choosing your race as a cleric, the teacher has been known to be
racists to some. Also their hitpoints are atrocious, so be careful when
picking a Gnome.
==Allowable Remort races==
Monks fall under a unique set of restrictions for equipment. Since monks rely
on using their bodies as their weapons, they cannot afford to have any part of
them weighted down by cumbersome armor or clothing. Therefore anything worn by
monks must be light. However, strong Monks can wear slightly heavier garments.
Monks usually favor very light warrior equipment to assist them in combat.
