I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

Again, that's really a separate question.

The flurry of blows ki power is also an unarmed attack, which depending on ruling you'd need a free hand for. A separate question is the best place to go into the object interaction/versatile can of worms.

See rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/47259/… for a separate question on versatile weapons and monks in 5e.

Yes, you must be unarmed to make an unarmed strike, there is no exception in the rules for monks. An unarmed strike is basically a one-handed simple melee weapon.

comment Falling Damage and water
There are some pretty good Pathfinder rules specific answers to this question, by the way, so I'd suggest tagging as Pathfinder, saying you want a way to rule this, and get your question answered.

comment Do any studies exist that show what the most popular RPG setting genres are?
Please do not answer this question unless you have a real answer to this question.

comment Falling Damage and water
That's not how it's done here. And it makes no sense. Do you want a FATE answer to falling damage with a dead ogre? OK, "use a fate point to tag yourself with the 'embedded in an ogre like he's a tauntaun' aspect and then narratively blee blee."

Magic weapons/items are NOT a given in 5e.

comment Falling Damage and water
Me too. This doesn't make sense as system agnostic. You don't have to want RAW, but you should probably tag as Pathfinder and ask how one might rule it given existing rules.

comment What is the meaning of 'permanent' in description of True Polymorph?
Welcome to "save or die," a tradition in pre-4e Dungeons & Dragons.
