Monk of the Hidden Continent (Monk; Ursaren)

Lovers of food and revelry, the ursaren monks of the hidden continent are no strangers to adversity. For ages, they lived as slaves, until one amongst them rose up against their oppressors and taught his people how to stand up for themselves.

Class Features

A monk of the hidden continent has the following class features:

Vital Strike (Ex)

Each monk of the hidden continent begins play with Vital Strike as a bonus feat, but can only apply that feat using the attack action to make an unarmed strike.

Starting at 6th level, the monk gains Improved Vital Strike with the same restriction. At 11th level, he gains Greater Vital Strike with the same restriction.

This replaces stunning fist and the bonus feats gained at 1st, 6th, and 10th levels.

Acrobatic Roll (Ex)

At 3rd level, a monk of the hidden continent can move at full speed when using Acrobatics to move through a threatened area or an enemy’s space without increasing the DC. He also gains a +2 bonus on Acrobatics checks to move through a threatened area or enemy’s space. This bonus increases to +4 at 9th level and +6 at 15th level.

This replaces the monk’s fast movement increases at 3rd, 9th, and 15th level.

Wholeness of Body (Su)

At 4th level, a monk of the hidden continent gains wholeness of body. At 7th level, he can use a full-round action to heal a creature he touches for half the amount healed by wholeness of body instead.

This replaces the monk’s ability to make one additional attack when using flurry of blows.

Focused Lightning (Sp)

At 14th level or higher, a monk of the hidden continent can cast lightning bolt. Using this ability is a standard action that consumes 2 points from his ki pool. His caster level is equal to half his monk level. He can target only one creature within range of this ability. A creature that fails its save against focused lightning treats the squares between it and the monk as difficult terrain until the start of the monk’s next turn.

This replaces the bonus feat gained at 14th level.

Resurrection (Sp)

At 19th level or higher, a monk of the hidden continent can cast resurrection. Using this ability is consumes 3 points from the monk’s ki pool. The monk must still provide a diamond worth at least 10,000 gp to use this ability.
