Upate: This playbook was previously listed as "The Mystic," the older name for Monks in roleplaying games. The name has been updated to "The Monk" to be recongizable to modern gamers. Also, the illustration on the new cover was made by Kaitlynn Peavler.

Nothing stays the same way forever. Everything changes with time. Do not get attached to what exists. Instead, strive to be free from all attachments. To do so is the only way to free oneself from pain and obtain a higher state of being.

The Monk is a new playbook for Dungeon World for those who wish to play a martial artists.

Monks do not use weapons, but, instead, form elaborate techniques of martial prowess by merging known tags together. Their years of physical training allow them to reduce the damage they take from strikes when unarmored and perform fantastic feats of acrobatics. Some may even dabble in the dark paths.

The training a monk endures is not just focused on the physical. Monks learn to see the universe in a new light and strive to uncover the mysteries of the world. They can learn to draw upon the inner energy known as Chi, free their mind from indecision and doubt, and master the gentle touch. Their wisdom may, one day, attract a student.

This playbook comes in two, nearly-identical packages: an "old school" and "new school" version. The difference between these packages are that they use different terms.

The "old school" version uses the terms alignment and race like the core DW classes.

The "new school" uses the terms drives and backgrounds (Styles, in this instance) as seen in many indie DW playbooks. Drives and backgrounds appeal to gamers who dislike the race/alignment restrictions in core DW playbooks.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
