“What does moving sand have to do with kicking ass?”
“By the time you have finished, you will understand.”
The Harbinger has introduced the Monk to an old master who has accepted him as a pupil. Their training is brutal, but effective. Weeks of driving his hands into piles of sand has hardened them into frightful weapons.
The Monk is capable of catching swords by the blade and does not fear spiked armor. Further, the attacks of their hardened hands are truly deadly.
Passive, always in effect. Unarmed attacks will do +2 more damage and the target's Armor is Fully Effective. Brawn cannot be used as Armor against your unarmed attacks.
You may never take damage from attacking a dangerous surface (e.g. spiked armor, acidic hide, etc.), and you may parry attacks from melee weapons as you would an unarmed attacker.
