This forum is awesome, it is way more active than any forum I have been on before. Anyway, what do you guys think about the Tonfa being introduced as a Monk weapon? Personally, I think that they are great.
The problem is pugilist is another title that's a bit to narrow in it's implications. It's basically the same problem as monk, just moved to a different place on the venn diagram.
We need a name that is broader.
The more I think, the more "Mystic" doesn't seem so terrible. Not really a caster, but someone that does weird supernatural stuff, and even base monk has a lot of that.
"Mystic" isn't a bad choice, but doesn't really reference the martial arts aspect. Perhaps "Mystic Fist" would be better.
