Special Abilities
AC Bonus +1 The Monk adds his Wisdom bonus to AC and CMD, more at higher levels.
Back to Back +2 to AC vs flanking foes if adj to ally with this feat.
Boulder Toss Kata (Su) You hurl a boulder at the target up to 30’. Make a ranged attack roll. If you hit the target, you deal 4d8+3 damage and the target is subjected to a bull rush attack. If you fail to bull rush target, you are not subject to any reactive rolls or effects. You gain a bonus on this bull rush attempt equal to your chakra level (+2).
Chakra Elemental Masters strengthen their connection to their Element
Child of the Rock (Su) You gain a +2 circumstance bonus on kata damage when feet touching earth.
Earth Catapult Kata (Su) As a standard action and at a range of 20’, you violently thrust up the earth beneath someone's feet in a 5’ area, sending them flying into another square of your choice up to 10 feet away in any direction (including up). The targeted square becomes difficult terrain. Affected subjects may make a reflex save to not be affected or take falling damage as normal.
Earth Prison Kata (Su) A giant hand of earth comes out of the ground and holds an opponent in place. Escaping from this ensnarement requires either a Grapple check or Escape Artist check (DC 17).
Earth Walker Kata (Su) You can move through the earth at a rate of 40 ft. per round. In doing so, you create a 5’ square tunnel that you can either leave open (for allies to use) or collapse behind you.
Earthbender (Su) range 40', You fire a blast of gravel earth at your opponent inflicting 4d6+3 points of non-lethal physical damage. This is a ranged attack roll, no saving throw to resist this damage, though armor and other forms of physical damage resistance apply. If the target of this attack is not wearing eye protection he must also make a Fortitude saving throw (DC 17) be blinded for a number of rounds equal to one-half your chakra level. Although you can use this power with multi-attack, you cannot attack the same target with this power more than once per round.
Earthsight Kata (Su) You gain Tremorsense 60’ and become sensitive to vibrations in the ground and can automatically pinpoint the location of anything that is in contact with the ground as long as you stand on a solid material. Loose material, such as sand, halves your tremor sense distance.
Evasion (Ex) If you succeed at a Reflex save for half damage, you take none instead.
Flurry of Blows +8/+8/+3 (Ex) Make Flurry of Blows attack as a full rd action.
Free Spirit You embody the independent spirit of the River Kingdoms and do best when sailing under your own flag, in every sense. You gain a +2 trait bonus on Will saves to avoid charm and compulsion effects.
Improved Unarmed Strike Unarmed strikes don't cause attacks of opportunity, and can be lethal.
Ki Pool (Su) You have a ki pool equal to 1/2 your monk level + your Wisdom modifier.
Shape Earth Kata: You manipulate the basic shape of packed earth, crystal or rock to look like something else (such as a sculpture) or create hand holds to climb gaining a +8, though specific detail is very hard. The Craft skill determines the exact quality of the object created. Simple sculpture that can be created with a Craft check of 10 or less can be made with a full-round action; however, for every 5 points the Craft DC increases, this form requires one additional round to activate. Sculpted rock has 10 Hardness and 20 Hit Points per inch of thickness. Sculpted clay has 5 Hardness and 35 Hit Points per inch. Craft (Weaponsmithing) can be used with Shape Earth to make weaponry and ammunition out of rock. This weaponry functions precisely as the base item, and can even be enchanted; one 5-ft cube creates material for eight medium-sized weapons, or up to four hundred pieces of ammunition.

Appropriately sized earth creatures such as elementals can be altered with use of this kata, though it does not hinder them in any way.
Unarmed Strike (Element Master) (1d8) (Ex) The Monk does lethal damage with his unarmed strikes.
Ustalavic Noble +1 trait bonus on Diplomacy and Knowledge (nobility) checks.
Magic Headstone +2 Wisdom and Headband of Ki Focus
Headband of Ki Focus Whenever the wearer spends ki points to make an additional attack, that attack roll gains a +1 insight bonus (+2 if the wearer is using a ki focus weapon with that attack). Furthermore, the wearer of a headband of ki focus is immune to the ninja’s ki block trick or similar effects that block the wearer from using ki points.

Ki pool uses:
By spending 1 point from his ki pool, a monk can do one of the following:

-Make one additional attack at his highest attack bonus when making a flurry of blows attack,
-Increase her speed by 20 feet for 1 round, or
-Give herself a +4 dodge bonus to AC for 1 round.

As long as she has at least 1 point in his ki pool, he can make a ki strike.
-At 4th level, ki strike allows her unarmed attacks to be treated as magic weapons for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.
-At 7th level, ki strike allows her unarmed attacks are also treated as cold iron and silver for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.

Each of these powers is activated as a swift action.

The ki pool is replenished each morning after 8 hours of rest or meditation; these hours do not need to be consecutive.

young Terra's story:

General Backstory so far:

Terra is the Daughter of a military general with political connections.

She only recently relocated to Swampwood looking for a quiet life as her father is soon ready to retire.

Currently her father spends a lot of time away, so most of her upbringing falls on her mother.

Her mother is a strict disciplinarian and a bit over protective and restrictive.

Terra was brought up to be the perfect and proper noble lady, (in training) but it is starting to be evident that Terra is starting to hate this lifestyle. She wants to get out, be with her father, and learn to fight.

She spends her days being schooled in the various arts by private tutors, but in the evening she sneaks out to watch the estate guards practice. This has gotten her into trouble numerous times.

Despite her noble exterior, she is a tomboy at heart, and loves to "play in the dirt"
Terra believes that the earth is actually calling to her, but most adults brush that aside as childish fantasy.

Terra has bad eyesight, though not blind she sometimes has to squint or focus real hard to see what many others can see easily.

She tends to wear her hair long covering parts of her face, she does this to hide the marks of her mother’s “discipline” though the marks are barely noticeable, to her, they stand out for all to see.

It was one evening she managed to slip away to practice with her friend but was lured away by “The Piper”

backstory condensed version:

Valterra hates her life. Her parents are nobles and so she must behave as such. She dosen't openly rebel knowing that she won't be able to practice her magic if she does soemthing that displeases her parents. So she wears the dresses and her fake life as gracefully as she can with out erupting. She plans to run away one day whee she can forever be free of her stupid parent rules.

she goes by the nickname Terra


Valterra is respectful on the outside but on the inside she wants to rip off people heads. Her only vent for her anger is using her oracle abilities. It's the only way she's allowed to destroy things.

In the following story I inserted a character for interaction but intentionally left parts unfilled to added later. this is the place to provide a connection to another player. the other person's profession, name, etc are really just left blank to allow a tie-in.

more detailed story (a page of her life):

I sighed and simply said, “Yes Mother.” I stared down at my pillow while my mother continued.
“You cannot go running around every time you feel like it. You must act like a proper general’s daughter and stop acting like such a wimp!”

I tightened my hands into fists but continued to look down at the pillow my hair making a curtain over my face. “Yes Mother.” I whispered this time in a tighter voice.

I felt her hand grab my chin and jerk my head up. My hair fell away and I was looking into her dark brown eyes. I didn’t blink as she coldly said, “You’ll do as your told or trust me you’ll find that this recent punishment is nothing.”

I couldn’t stop my mouth. My stupid filter less mouth. “Like being in this hell hole isn’t punishment enough.” I mumbled.

I felt the sting on my cheek before my brain had registered what had happened. Have you ever watched tar trying to go down a hill? Even if it’s a really steep hill it takes awhile. That’s how my brain was. It took a minute to register the slap. I had been slapped before of course. Usually once or twice a week ever since I started roaming the streets at night. Something about this slap was different though. It felt as if there was some finality about it.

I closed my eyes deeply and felt my fists begin to shake. The pots in my ever so beautifully disgusting room started to quiver and I took a deep breath.

I opened my eyes to look into my smug mother’s face. She quickly humped and left through my door.

My mother had no idea the damage she was causing. each slap each punch to the face, I lost more and more of my vision. was it the punishment or the fact that I was going blind what got me angry, did I even care.

I felt a tear escaping from one of my eyes and quickly wiped it away. I went to the bathroom and changed out of the elaborate dress I had been wearing into loose pants and a matching loose shirt. I grabbed a cord from one of my drawers and put up my hair out of my face.

I moved my stuff out of my way then stood in the middle of my bedroom. I got into my fighting stance, the same stance I had been tuaght since I was old enough to walk and started breathing in and out very slowly. Suddenly I made all the pots in my room come flying toward me. I closed my eyes and shatered them all together while I ducked. The shards flew everywhere in my room and I made the pieces avoid hitting me. Next I looked at the wall in front of me and yelling in anger I hurled a block of stone ripped from the floor and blew it out. A servant outside stared at me wide eyed and scurried away down the hall. I slammed another stone block into the next wall. Now my room had shards all over the floor and two of my walls were condensed to rubble. I then screamed as the shards around me exploded in every direction impailing themselves in the remaining walls and shattering everything around me that I didn't destroy yet.

I pulled the cord out of my hair and let it fall around me. I grabbed a bag and stuck a few pairs of cloths in there. I walked out of my non-existent wall into a new room down the hall.

My room would be cleaned in a day or two. New walls pots and cloths included. Sadly I did this frequently. I flopped on the bed of the new room, and stared up at the ceiling. Suddenly I had the urge to runaway again. So what if my mother said I can’t. I-I just want to leave. Go someplace. Maybe even to the Lower districts this time. I quickly packed my clothes and some money into a backpack and changed into some used cloths that didn’t look as expensive. I left my room through the window and landed in the rose bush that sat under it. I winced as my face and arms got cut but moved around the bush.

I avoided the guards around the house and climbed over the high wall that surrounded my family’s house. I landed barefoot on the pavement. There were people all around me and some looked at me oddly as I jumped over the wall but then ignored me. I walked quickly not even noticing where I was going.

Hopefully Mother didn’t realize I was gone or at least I hope she won’t find out any time soon.

Okay I read this again and realized how much she sounded like Toph >< However awesome that would be no... she isn't like Toph. I don't know how to explain it really but it's diffrent.... she's more.... I don't know.... tame I guess. Inside she's terrified of the world and she's afraid someone will find out so she hides it by being destructive. Any lets continue...

Lots of people started glancing at a person behind me. I tried not to look back hoping whoever it was wasn’t one of the big body guard people my mom regularly sent to find me when I ran off. I heard a voice behind me and turned around.

"This is going to sound really weird, but shouldn't you be, you know...home? It's getting late and you look pretty young. I could take you back to your house if you want.”

I flinched at the sound and I recognized the face. Famous local kid. Hot attractive, had fan girls running after him frantically all the time.

Oh look I DON’T CARE!!!!!

Now I was really irritated. Apparently I still looked to rich or what ever it was that had made this boy (I couldn’t remember his name) offer to walk me home. I crouched down before I answered him and got as much dirt on my hands as possible then rubbed it roughly onto my face.

I now looked like I had rolled in mud.

Now, turning to the boy I glared fiercely at him. “First off, I don’t want to go home.” I held up one finger. “Second, I can take care of my self.” I ticked off another finger. “Third and last, buzz off.” I now held up three of my fingers and smirked at the boy in irritation. “Got it macho?”

"I'm not actually deaf," he replied, "and despite the fact that you seem to think I'm an idiot, I can understand what you're saying." he glared back at me fiercely, not willing to back down to any opponent, no matter that he wasn't in an arena or on some stage surrounded by thousands of fans.

I sighed and said, "I never said that I thought you were stupid. You wouldn't be so good at whatever it is that you do if you were." I took a deep breath trying to calm myself down. I tended to have some problems with filters. My mother had gotten mad at me allot. I hope she didn't get mad at me when I got home.....

I was shocked. I realized then that I wasn't going to go home. I wouldn't. I hadn't realized until now that that was what I was planing. I had just been trying to get away from them. Away from everything that my family imposed on me. A small smile lit my face up.

I started saying softly, "I'm not going back. I'm never going back." I was in complete and utter awe. The fact that I would make such a choice. I looked back up at the boy, I had completely forgotten about him.

"I-I..." I smiled at him and said, "Today is the happiest day of my life! Thank you so much! I'm never going home! Never again!" I started laughing hysterically and when water started coming out of the sky I tilted my head back to feel it on my face.

I had never been allowed to stand in the rain before, my mother had said 'It was bad for my hair.' Or something like that. I laughed again and started spinning in circles splashing through the small puddles that were all ready accumulating.

"I'm not going back. I'm not going back." I stated singing happily. I think this is how kids were supposed to feel.

Officially the BEST moment of my life!

Freedom? day 2:

I wandered the streets. always looking over my shoulder. Never knowing who was looking for me, if my mother was paying mercenaries this time around or not. There was one place I could go.

With some help I made my way across town to the estate of Geoffrey. It had been a while since I saw him last. Dad was friends with him for some time. even before, "she" was around.

The rain continued all day and night I was soaked by the time I arrived at his gates. I prayed to the gods that he was home, I hoped he would remember me.

Geoffrey! I called out pounding on the gates doubtful anyone heard me over the rain. I started to feel even more blind than usual, my feet soaking in a puddle the soft mud between my toes. the world seemed blurry.

There was no response, at least the rain would hide my tears. did I do the right thing? But there ws no turning back now, the punishment if I return now would be more than I could bear. I looked up at the sky letting the rainwater soak my face, my tears mixing with the rain.

Looking back down I pounded again, harder this time. Geoffrey, Its me, Terra! I called again, even louder.

Still no response. I steped to the side leaning aganst the stone wall around the estate. As my hand touched the wall, a vision flashed in my eyes. can I see again, like normal people?

No I could see beyond the wall. like the stone itself revealed what it could see. I saw a man coming to the gates. Geoffrey! I called a third time.

The gates opened and he saw me there. wet, battered, lost. he man took me in. gave me a towel and He lay my in the spare bed to rest. I closed my eyes.

i forgot, Geoffrey moved to cottage outside of town, the estate was now an Orphange. No matter I would be safe here for now.

New life - day 3, or was it 4:

The next morning I awoke and found new, clean clothes laid out for me. I changed and tied my hair up with a new green ribbon. I felt refreshed.

Geoffrey fed me. I was always pampered but not like this, there was something different about this time.

Good morning Terra. I sent word to your father that you are safe and with me

I stopped eating, a look of fear filled my blind eyes. My mother...is she? I began to ask. Geoffrey shook his head No. You talk in your sleep. and I listened. You are safe with me. Your father as ordered me to protect you. Geoffrey informed me.

I have a new lease on life, But what about father? I asked of him.

there is trouble brewing, he and I are needed.

You mean you serve under father? this news came as a shock, father never told me of this. I mean, I knew Geoffrey was an important man but I never knew he served under my father's command.

yes Geoffrey replied, But he believes you should remain here at the estate, help with the Orphnage. I think I could use your talents with me, If you want to come with me.

Geoffrey never elaborated more on this but I journeyed with him. I was dressed as a boy and given a uniform. I was in the army now. and servant to Colonel Geoffrey.

Mother would never find me here.
