Monk – Way of the Moon Soul

The way of the moon soul moves in the shadows, deflecting the light of the moon into the minds of her opponents. She causes her target to become deranged, insane, touched by the moon; a lunatic.

Bonus Proficiencies

Beginning at 3rd level, you gain proficiency with the athletics and stealth skills.

Sickles of the Moon

Starting at 3rd level, you can use your action to create a moon soul sickle in both hands. These sickles have an ebony black haft and a curved blade that sheds a pale white light. The blades illuminate a 20-feet radius around you with dim light. You can suppress the light without having to spend an action.

These weapons count as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to nonmagical attacks and damage, but only while you wield them. They disappear if they are more than 5 feet away from you for 1 minute or more. They also disappear if you use this feature again, if you dismiss the weapons (no action required), or if you die. When you find a magical weapon that is not an artifact or a sentient weapon, you can perform a special ritual while you hold the weapon. You perform the ritual over the course of 1 hour, which can be done during a short rest. You can then dismiss the weapon, shunting it into an extradimensional space. While it is there, your sickles have the same properties as the weapon stored. The weapon ceases to confer its properties if you die, if you perform the 1-hour ritual on a different weapon, or if you use a 1-hour ritual to break your bond to it. The weapon appears at your feet if it is in the extradimensional space when the bond breaks. You can use these sickles instead of your unarmed strike attacks. Any feature of the Way of the Moon Soul that requires an attack requires you to use these sickles.

Way of the Moon Soul Techniques

At 3rd level, when you hit with one of your Flurry of Blow attacks, but never more than once on your turn, you can impose one of the following effects on your target:

  • You blind your target with the light of your sickles. It must make a Dexterity saving throw or be blinded until the start of you next round.
  • You pummel the hafts of your sickles into its vocal organ. It must make a Constitution saving throw or be silenced until the start of you next round.
  • You impose a visage of horror on its being. It must make a Wisdom saving throw or be frightened until the start of your next turn.


Starting at 6th level, on the first attack that hits on your turn, you can confuse your target. If it fails a Wisdom saving throw, it acts confused until the start of your next turn. If you choose to do so, you can do psychic damage instead of your normal damage with that hit.

On its turn, roll a D10 to see what your target will do:

1: The creature uses all its Movement to move in a random direction. To determine the direction, roll a d8 and assign a direction to each die face. The creature doesn’t take an action this turn.

2-6: The creature doesn’t move or take actions this turn.

7-8: The creature uses its action to make a melee Attack against a randomly determined creature within its reach. If there is no creature within its reach, the creature does nothing this turn.

9-10: The creature can act and move normally.

You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier (minimum of 1). You regain all uses of this feature after a long rest.

Pull of the Moon

At 11th level, the pull of the moon makes it so that gravity has a lesser hold on you. You gain the following benefits:

  • You can jump twice as far and high as normal.
  • You have a climb speed equal to your normal speed.
  • Your proficiency in athletics and stealth become expertise instead.

The pull of the moon also gives you an edge in combat:

  • You have advantage on initiative rolls.
  • On your first turn during combat, you have advantage on attack rolls against creatures that have not yet acted.


Finally, at 17th level, you can touch the mind of your quarries. After you have dealt psychic damage to a creature and within 1 minute of the attack that caused the damage, you can use an action to cast the spell Feeblemind on that creature. You regain the use of this feature after a long rest.
