Boon A battle monk can assist the PCs in a single fight (or send several initiates) if it serves the interest of her academy or her master. A battle monk could also introduce the PCs to the master of her academy or to a diplomat, merchant, or other NPC from the land where her martial art originated.

Editor's Note

We noted a few issues with this NPC:
1. The +4 monk bonus in the AC line is actually his Wisdom modifier. 
2.  HP do not account for max at 1st level.  Should be hp 36
3. The jumping modifier for acrobatics fails to account for both the speed modifier and monk's high jump ability.  The skill should read:
Acrobatics +10 (jumping +23)

GM's are encouraged to use these revised stats.
