Hey all, I have something I would like you to review. My thought for a character I am making for an upcoming campaign was a monk/swordsage mix just like the Shadow Sun Ninja. Problem is however, that the fluff of the class really does not fit the concept I had in mind. I was looking for a something that relied on movement, bouncing around, and something befitting a personality that is easily distracted by bright shiny objects, not the dark, moody thing the SSN has going on. So, I ditched all the SSN class abilities and came up with this:

Monkey Paw Disciple (http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=pI5uqU19XVLC1lZ8PVltsVw)

My main question relates to balance - how does this compare to the Shadow Sun Ninja? That class is fine with my DM and I would like something relatively equal, just without all the fluff baggage.

(Apologies for not creating an in-post table, but my board-fu is sorely lacking.)
