The Monk died at level 4, then again at level 7, and finally at level 13
The Guardian died at level 2, level 4, level 9, level 13, and level 19
The Monk's party died at level 8 and level 14
The Guardian's party died at level 2 and level 13.
I wonder why they kept dying at level 13? Does anyone have an answer for this?
Compare their equipment and special abilities to see if how each class stands against the other.

Alright, R3 has been uploaded!
What has been added:
How monks prepare their spells
Monk Guidelines
What has been fixed:
Instead of saying Release 1 it says Release 3

I plan on fixing the HD for Monk in R4... Anything that needs attention when I do come around to R4?

I always find weird monks being able to cast divine spells by meditation, maybe they should cast "Monk" spells, with their own list (maybe taking some MU's spells) and being granted thru spiritual enlightenment or with the connection with some high spirits...

The file says "Synergy" as if it should have some special meaning or mechanic attached rather that just being "at the same time" or "in combination".

Feel free to erase my r1 file from your post as now its obsolete.

Question : Would having their own Monk spells be changing what class they're based off of?

There are several sub-classes that have their own spell list, druids have their own spells also. They are still sub-classes.

The fey-mage and healer are both sub-classes with some twist on their spellcasting methods.

To me, a sub-class is more than the spell list it has access to or the mechanics its uses, is about the concept and niche.

Aaaand R4 has been uploaded!
What's new:
Changed Monk HD
Gave Monks a spell casting list (with some new spells in there)
What I am considering to change:
Removing either Chi Flow or both Earthen Guard and Light Movement now that monks have their own spell list. This is the main thing I wanted to discuss with you guys.
Adding a 4th ability to the guardian: Break, which has a chance to break a creature's bones and deal damage if done correctly
The Soul Search spell may need to be changed so people can actually understand what it does.

Also, could some one do the correct format for the spells and spell list? I still have no idea of the correct format...
