A friend of mine will be starting a Dark Sun campaign soon. I've never played in that setting and I barely scraped the surface when it comes to psionics. What I'm looking for is a survivalist monk build. I'm nearly positive that the DM will stay true to the 'feel' of the setting and rarely give us magical gear though he might give us psionic gear, maybe. So another condition is that I should be as effective as possible without magic items. I'm currently leaning towards a Monk/Soul Knife build.

Assume:
- Low income from encounters.
- Level 20 build.
- Some books might be banned (I'll try to address this as we go).

Let's see what we can come up with. Thanks in advance.

Simple and to the point. Excellent.

Which feats, other than Tashalatora, would you recommend. The psychic warrior has many options.

The basic melee stuff, plus Linked Power. Possibly Psionic Meditation and Psionic Body as well...

And Psicrystal Affinity+Expanded KNowledge (Share Pain), of course...

A couple of water benders, a dike, a flaming arrow, and a few barrels of blasting jelly?

Sounds like the makings of a gay porn film.

for an Awesome Build .... try this:

Human
Monk 2/ Ardent 8/ Slayer 10

Feats:
Track
Monastic Training(Slayer)
Tashalatora(Slayer)
Practiced Manifester(Ardent)
Expanded Knowledge(Metamorphosis)
Metamorphic Transfer


far better in ALL respects .... Better Hp, BAB, 9th lvl Powers, WAY More PP

That's not too shabby. The down side is that I get less feats, but I can live with this. I have to see what my DM says about Tashalatora first because, from what I recall, it was in an Eberron book.

even without Tashalatora ... Monk 2/ Ardent 8/ Slayer 10 is a very strong Build(BAB +17) ... and if you only took these feats:

Practiced Manifester
Metamorphic Transfer

you will do just fine ....

If dragon magazine is allowed, the troll-blooded feat will give you regeneration 1.
