Divine bard fluff is postponed for this breaking news:
Monks don't use Ki.
In fact, Ki may not even be a power source any more.
And samurai? Not even a class anymore.
WHATS GOING ON!?!?
On the plus side, you can use the magic item ritual on your fists. YES. On your fists. I also created a new term: "minor psudo-class" for those feat-only multiclass options that they put into dragon magazine, such as the "bravo" and all of the gladiator weapon feats.
I glanced over the playtest for the monk, it seems interesting, but I require more research...
Also, could this be a hint at new classes in PHB3?
"Does it make sense to group witches, knights, jesters, and friars into one power source?"
