Yamabushi (Unchained Monk Archetype)

Alignment: Any neutral

Casting: At first level a yamabushi may combine spheres and talents to create magical effects. A yamabushi is considered a Low-Caster and uses Wisdom as her casting ability modifier. (Note: All casters gain 2 bonus talents (which may also be used to select spheres) and may select a casting tradition the first time they gain the casting class feature.) This replaces the stunning fist class feature.

Spell Pool: A yamabushi at first level gains a small reservoir of energy she can call on to create truly wondrous effects, called a spell pool. This pool contains a number of spell points equal to her class level + her casting ability modifier (minimum: 1).

In addition, her spell pools may be spent as if they were ki points for all ki powers and class features, including the standard benefits usually available through a ki pool such as making extra attacks or improving one’s AC. This pool replenishes once per day after roughly 8 hours of rest. This replaces the ki pool gained at 3rd level.

Magic Talents: A yamabushi only gains a magic talent at 4th level and every 4 levels thereafter.

Woodsman: Yamabushi, in their search of enlightenment, often begin their study in the wilderness, sometimes never even leaving the harsh solitary lifestyle. At first level, a yamabushi gains the Nature sphere as a bonus sphere (If you already have the Nature sphere from another source, you may instead gain an additional talent from that sphere instead).

This replaces the bonus feat gained at 1st level.

Natural Self: At 20th level, a yamabushi is treated as a fey rather than as a humanoid (or whatever the yamabushi’s creature type was) for the purpose of spells and magical effects. He also gains DR 10/cold iron. Finally, the yamabushi gains the ability to enter a state of perfect calm. During this time, the yamabushi can take no actions, but he does regain spell points at the rate of 1 point per hour spent at calm. He cannot use this ability to gain an amount of spell points in excess of his maximum. This replaces perfect self gained at 20th.
