View Full Version : [3.5] Kensai=FUN!

2010-04-13, 04:02 PM
I just thought I'd open a thread for the fun things you can do with the Kensai class.
Ideas are welcome, plans are good, and full builds are encouraged.
Don't feel limited by the bounds of traditional roleplaying: minmaxing, roleplaying, stupidity, and theoretical builds are all welcome.

My favorites:
1) ROCKET FIST!- You can enchant your unarmed strikes with the Throwing enhancement.
2) Beard-fu!- As a monk, your unarmed strikes can be made with any part of your body. So give yourself a Flaming Beard.
3) Other "bodily enhancements"- For a more mature game, as a female character, you could enchant your breasts, one with a "stunning" and one with a "dazing" enhancement, and call them "Shock" and "Awe."
4) Improvised Weapon Madness!- Give a fish the Holy enhancement. 'Nuff said.

I'm hoping for some true Spartan madness here, don't hold back, Playgrounders!

As a Monk, your entire body is your weapon. Make your body Brilliant Energy, then convince your DM this means you can walk through walls.

Enchant yourself with Fleshgrinding, and proceed to jump on an enemy and start eating them?

Enchant yourself with Masterslaying, so, if someone uses Magic Jar on you, you can kill yourself?

Distance so you can jump farther, Morphing so you can change size, or you can get vorpral fingernails.

Enchant yourself with morphing and sizing. Change your name to Megatron.

Yeah, Kensai is weird like that. Best thing? Use Throwing and Returning on your head, plus flaming if you can. Then wear a hat of disguise, to make it look like a pumpkin. Congrats, you're now the headless horseman.

How about Vorpal? Decapitating hands!

I've got one for you: Morphing. What happens? Can you turn yourself into a gauntlet? Or just your hands?

I raise you a decapitating head.

Make your entire body acidic. Then grapple people.

Knockback is good as well. Do it while screaming "Falcon Punch!"

Enervating would be pretty nasty. Take away levels on critical hits. Combine with Keen for added effectiveness. You could also add on vampiric, allowing you to suck up your enemy's HP with every hit.

Vicious = punch a wall until you pass out from blood loss.

Dancing Head.

Dancing body? Does that mean your entire body attacks on your own, while you can also attack with the rest of your body? :smallbiggrin:

Give your unarmed strike Sizing, and become anything from colossal to fine at will.

You just know where this is going to end up goind :smalltongue:

Increasing the size of your hands, so you can carry more treasure? [/fake innocence]

Make your body an aptitude weapon.

2010-04-13, 06:06 PM
But I dislike it if everyone uses me, just because they can!

2010-04-13, 06:37 PM
You just know where this is going to end up goind :smalltongue:

But you could only enchant one part of your body. Can you say:

"Power-pole, EXTEND!!!!"

Would that cause Knockback as well, since your fist/foot/whatever expands to occupy extra space?

Also, Dancing Buttocks ftw.

Edit: Laughs for the above.
