Oh-ho! Apparently Dragonne Magazine has not finished yielding its precious secrets just yet. Here we have another article, this time dealing with a European-inspired alternative to the monk class.
The whole is based on the following quote by Gary on one of his Q&A’s back in the day:
What I was contemplating was a non-Oriental sort of Monk character to replace the clearly Eastern martial artist one featured. The class would likely have been a sort of dedicated warrior-spy with a few elements of the original Monk class, new abilities of more European sort to round it out. That way the Scarlet Brotherhood would not have had to lost its warrior-monk component.
And wouldn’t you know it? Such a thing actually appeared in the pages of our alternate-history Dragonne magazine from the 80’s. Enjoy!
