^Halfling Martial Monk 5/Psi-Ranger 15 w/ Solitary Hunter, Arcane Hunter, Skilled City-Dweller (switch (Ranger's) Ride for Tumble) and Spell Reflection.

Arcane Hunter = Complete Mage
Martial Monk = Dragon #310
Psi-Ranger = DSP SRD
Skilled City-Dweller = Cityscape Web Enhancement 1
Solitary Hunter = Dragon #347
Spell Reflection = Complete Mage

Apparently, Psi-Ranger ML is equal to his class levels since it's not stated to be half like the standard ranger. That's cool. Tashalatora is also cool. Martial Monk for Shock Trooper and Weapon Supremacy! Full attack w/ TWF (fists) and claws (Claws of the Beast). You may also consider Beast Strike (Dragon #355). Expansion it up. Physical Acceleration also available. I haven't done any math but if you have enough feats, you could get Intuitive Attack, maybe Nemesis (arcanist) and Yondalla's Sense. Of the top of my head.

Not sure if someone else has mentioned this yet, but Power Attack specifically lists unarmed and natural attacks as an exception to the "no bonus for light weapons" rule.

I'm sure it's like this, i did read this rule many times.

Anyway hello, i'm an user, i'll waste my first post asking a quite stupid question about the S.S. healer in the first page of the topic.

The quest is: despite the build seems to be wrong (you can't take Tashalatora at the 6° level with those skills), is the Tashalatora feat worthy? You've got only 2 level as Psywar, are those levels enough to justify that choose?

Thx for the answer.
Yea i know, i'm quite noob, but who cares, i'm here for learning.

looks like the autohypnosis 5 ranks were forgotten. the usual reason for taking tashalatora is to minimize the levels of monk that are needed while still getting progression in flurry and such. really depends on the build. while the wording implies that it can only be used with base classes, it is only a tiny stretch to allow it to work with prestige.

Thanks for the answer, but i already knew those stuff: Tashalatora it's one of my fav feats ever xD. The quest was related to the build itself: only 2 level as Psywar, Tasha here it's quite useless imo, it helps for sure, but not so much as it should.

As master i allow Tashalatora's working with psionic PrCs, some nice builds Monk/Swordsage/Warmind are a pleasure to be mastered.

Has anyone mentioned Ancestral Relic or Item Familiar yet? Because being a monk that can body-slam his way across the battlefield (speed/throwing/distance) could be lots of fun, and it'd take care of so many problems with the monk. Travel 100' as an attack action, and take 6+ attack actions per turn with Flurry/TWF/Snap Kick/Speed?

It'd also let you do ranged things, which are some of the monk's bigger weaknesses. Jump in, flurry attack, and jump out. It sure beats the hell out of Spring Attack.

I dare anyone to find a hole in that logic.

I get the image of real life Dwarf Tossing in my head.

And then a Dwarf tossing himself ... crossed with
a part of Fight Club where he's fighting himself, near the end of the flick.

Don't throw me!
 :lmao
I threw me !!

k, i'll bite. i can't figure it from memory, and i'm too lazy to look it up. may i humbly ask how that works converting the monk to ranged?

By selecting himself as the Relic, he can enchant his attacks and add the Throwing/Returning properties.

Except he can't since Ancestral Relic only works towards improving masterwork items.

See: warforged.

See also: dragonborn warforged.

See also: the monk's unarmed strike is treated as a manufactured weapon. Spend 300 gp upon character creation to make yourself masterwork from the get-go.

In this case the monk's parents used special fertility medicine to "make" the masterwork monk.

Assuming most people have 0 ranks in Craft (baby) and take 10, and the DC is also 10...

Progress of 1 week = 10gp.
9 month crafting time = 38 weeks.
Baby = 380gp.

Therefore, crafting a masterwork baby would take almost twice as long. Conversely, a 20th-level character with 36 Int, Skill Focus and masterwork tools could make a baby in under a week.

I assume that would count as raw materials, since aid another would have to be done repeatedly throughout the process.

There is a feat in the Planar Handbook called Acheron Flurry that is an unarmed feat that you missed. Unfortunately, it's crap, but you should probably include it for the sake of completeness.
