BALANCE OF MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT


______________________________________________________________________________________

OVERVIEW

imageDescription
The Sentaari guild is a monastery nestled in the forestal city of Duiran, focused on achieving balance in all things. Do not be fooled by their outward tranquil and calm appearance, however, for the Sentaari are a group of highly disciplined monks, with their bodies, minds and even spirits honed to preserve the ways of Life. Using the skill of Tekura, they study martial arts, mastering a variety of deadly and precise kicks and punches. Their training in Kaido teaches their minds to push their bodies to stunning levels of physical effort, while they can even use their meditative studies to tap into Telepathy, a powerful skill which can be used to heal and soothe allies, or to harm those who disrupt the balance in Sapience.

 
Combat
Monk combat focuses almost exclusively on limb attacks, with rotating damage done to the target's arms, legs, head and torso stacking up to create an overwhelming combination of broken bones. These attacks are augmented by telepathic attacks and the use of kai, which grants the Sentaari kai energy when they are hit - this energy can then be unleashed for powerful abilities. Monks provide good support to teams, with their abilities to attack from afar, and can even use their minds to wrench enemies to their location. While some of this may sound complicated, monks are actually very easy to learn for newcomers.

Roleplay
Sentaari have ties to the natural world, due to their place in Duiran, but can be just as comfortable in a city. Members are varied, from the outgoing to the reserved, the shy to the boisterous, while the guild itself focuses on achieving serenity and enlightenment - expect calm reflection and philosophical discussions alongside the rigours of physical training! The skill of Telepathy allows a lot of unique roleplay opportunities, with monks able to project illusions directly into the minds of others, opening the door to some very creative interaction possibilities.

ALIGNMENT

Tether: Spirit
Starting City: Duiran
Outlook: Sentaari are focused on seeking balance and harmony in the land, and they view the Undead as anathema to this goal. Some may take a zealous stance on this, but it's far more common for the monks to have a more gentle hand, leading those who have fallen into darkness back to the side of Spirit to find peace.

SKILLSETS

Kaido: A stunning study in discipline, Kaido trains monks mastery over their body itself, allowing them to achieve impressive feats of self-control beyond the scope of most mortals. Many utility and defensive skills can be found in this skillset, such as abilities to regenerate health, clot bleeding, resist damage and heal limbs through force of will. Kaido also gives access to a unique mechanic called kai - the more a monk is hit, the more kai he generates, which can then be spent on powerful abilities such as self-heals, remotely choking a foe's windpipe, or even the power to banish someone from the current timestream.

Tekura: The core of a monk's skills, Tekura teaches monks a vast array of punches and kicks. Abilities such as the hammerfist, roundhouse and even a flying jumpkick can all be combined for deadly use against a foe. Various stances, such as the rat, phoenix and tiger, give different benefits, opening the door to tactical choices not only in limb strikes, but in combat stance, while the lessons themselves follow a traditional martial arts progression of demonstration for a superior to earn belts.

Telepathy: A result of honing their minds themselves into weapons, monks can telepathically assault or assist others, even over a distance. Once a mindlock has been formed, a monk can perform a variety of actions on their target, such as healing them, moving them, forcing afflictions onto them, or even completely destroying them in a radiant, deadly strike.  This skillset is excellent for ranged situations, making the monk an asset in a team combat situation, both for harming or helping others.
