This bonus increases by 1 for every five monk levels thereafter (+2 at 10th, +3 at 15th, and +4 at 20th level). These bonuses to AC apply even against touch attacks or when the monk is flat-footed.

Weapons: Quarterstaff and H to H (everybody was Vash Dhar fighting, they were fast as lightening) The fighting style of Vash Dhar is unique to the “Temple, “ as it was co-developed with the monks of Dhar Koron from the Vashnian martial form Vashwi and the Dhar Koronian form Dhary. It is a very powerful presentiant style that strengthens the base styles. Only The Lucky or The Wise may teach. The Serene may provide insight as to how to slightly make corrections in stance as they are recognized as having base knowledge of the form.
