Beastsoul Monk (Normal/Unchained Monk Archetype)
The Shapeshifter's Handbook

Bestial Feats: At 1st level, the beastsoul monk gains the Transformation feat as a bonus feat in place of the bonus feat granted at first level. At second level, the beastsoul monk adds Hybrid Transformation and Improved Transformation to her list of bonus feats. The beastsoul monk may take the Transformation feat more than once, selecting a different form each time.

This modifies monk bonus feats.

Natural Flurry: A beastsoul monk may use natural attacks in place of attacks granted by her flurry of blows class feature and may apply effects requiring an unarmed strike to her natural attacks. The beastsoul monk adds her Strength modifier to damage with any natural attack used as part of a flurry of blows. The beastsoul monk does not gain increased unarmed strike damage from her class levels.

This modifies furry of blows and unarmed strike.

Ki Shifting: A beastsoul monk may select the Alteration sphere or talents from that sphere for which she qualifies in place any of the following monk class abilities: slow fall (4th), high jump (5th), wholeness of body (7th), diamond body (11th), abundant step (12th), diamond soul (13th), quivering palm (15th), timeless body (17th), tongue of the sun and moon (17th), empty body (19th), and perfect self (20th).

This replaces the monk class ability the beastsoul monk gives up for this ki power.

An unchained beastsoul monk may take Alteration sphere talents in place of ki powers. The beastsoul monk treats her class levels as Low-Caster levels for the Alteration sphere and spends ki points in place of spell points for Alteration Sphere effects. This effective caster level only applies to the Alteration sphere, but stacks with caster levels from other sources. Caster levels gained from beastsoul monk levels would not stack with caster levels gained from those same levels via the advanced magical training feat.

The beastsoul monk neither gains the bonus talents for having the casting class feature nor counts her beastsoul monk levels as casting class levels, but, at the GM’s discretion, may gain a casting tradition.
