Fist of Unbroken Air says that it targets a creature. As it doesn't specify that it only works on creatures of size category X or larger/smaller, it applies to all creatures of any size. Also since it targets a creature, as per RAW, you can't use it to blow out a hole in a cave or avalanche or blow back a thrown weapon. Note though that monks get the ...

Just to have a null default answer: No, there are no such variants. Every member of the monk class always has Wis-to-AC. This statement is based on the Alternative Class Features handbook, the most up-to-date version of that guide to my knowledge, as well as Chet Eretz’s base class index, which occasionally has things the ACF handbook does not. None ...

No. From the PhB (which system? Both. Well, the CRB from Pathfinder, to be technical): "A monk’s unarmed strike is treated both as a manufactured weapon and a natural weapon for the purpose of spells and effects that enhance or improve either manufactured weapons or natural weapons." Id, Craft Magic Arms and Armor: "The weapon, armor, or shield to be ...

Well, if you don't mind making a pact with some powerful entity, you could get 2 levels of warlock. This will give you access to a few spells, some of which perhaps being interesting both stats- and flavor-wise for your character. But most of all, this will give you access to 2 invocations. One of these invocations should be Devil's Sight, which grants you ...

Area of effect attacks may or may not be affected. There are also forms of "vision" that this spell doesn't stop (Blindsight, etc) so if a character could get that, they could attack within the darkness without suffering the disadvantage of being "blinded". I'm not sure a roving cloud of darkness would work, especially if the monk can't see out of it ...

The Darkness spell creates a 30 foot diameter sphere of darkness anywhere within 60 feet that is line of sight of the caster. While not a physical barrier it is a barrier to vision. It provides some of the effects of total cover by blocking line of sight. Anything in the rule that relies on Line of Setting like ranged attacks, etc will be effective. Now 30 ...

A DM acts as referee and makes interpretations of the rules. If playing with a group that enjoys surreal and irreverent humor, then go with it. If a DM is running a serious setting, then the interpretation is to disallow things that seem outside of a characters abilities in the genre, even if they are covered by an overly literal interpretation of the rules. ...

In the RAW yes. But after throwing it, they would have to go pick it up again as well. The hand would literally be thrown, not some sort of Ki blast. If you wish, as the GM however, you can always house-rule it in and reward them for their creativity.

This gives a new meaning to unarmed attack, but doesn't seem particularly useful. First, the unarmed strike: When you make a weapon attack such as a melee basic attack, you can use the monk unarmed strike, which is a weapon in the unarmed weapon group. This weapon has the off-hand weapon property and a +3 proficiency bonus, and it deals 1d8 damage. You ...
