Class notice Edit

This class is not available at character creation and must be unlocked by meeting special requirements, listed below. This class has 29 available levels.

You become a Long Death monk by using the 'Monk Prestige Classes' feat all monk characters get at level 1. Through the conversation that opens you may select progression in an available prestige class whenever you level-up as a monk. You can also disable further progression in a prestige class through this menu.

Long Death Monk substitution levels do not progress the monk flurry and ki-fist feats.

Description Edit

Longdeathmonk
Scattered across Faerûn, the monks of the long death are members of a macabre, secretive order of scholars seeking to understand the true nature of death.

They do not care about the soul or the afterlife—only about the actual process of death, specifically its effects on living tissue. Their organization is strongest in Thay, but outposts are scattered throughout Faerûn, even in the Silver Marches.

Monks make up the majority of the candidates for this prestige class, but clerics of the dark gods of death (such as Kiaransalee and Myrkul) are fairly common as well. Necromancers, assassins, and other characters who are fascinated with death round out the order’s numbers.

The candidate is inducted into the monks of the long death via a secret ceremony consisting of various morbid and hideous acts designed to test his resolve.
