Way of Mundanity

There are those who study the arcane as a means to change the world around them. There is a certain arrogance in that concept, so in order to maintain balance there exists a group dedicated to preservation of the natural and the mundane. Monks who follow the Way of Mundanity use both the study of magic and the mastery of their own internal energies to battle those who use the arcane.

Arcane Detection

3rd-level Way of Mundanity feature

You gain proficiency in the Arcana skill if you do not already have it. Additionally, you can spend 1 ki point to cast the detect magic spell as an action.

Spell Deflection

3rd-level Way of Mundanity feature

You can use your Deflect Missiles ability to reduce the damage you take from magical sources. When you take any magical damage that isn’t bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing, you can spend 1 ki point to reduce the damage taken as you would with Deflect Missiles. If you reduce the damage to 0, you can choose to cause your next melee attack to deal additional force damage equal to one roll of your Martial Arts die.

Suppressing Ki

6th-level Way of Mundanity feature

You’ve learned to use your ki to disrupt the magical nature of other creatures or objects. You can spend 3 ki points to cast counterspell, dispel magic, nondetection, or remove curse, using Wisdom as your spellcasting modifier.

Beginning at 17th level, you can spend 8 ki points to cast antimagic field. When you cast spells in this way, you ignore material components.

Magical Rending

11th-level Way of Mundanity feature

When you hit a creature that has the Magic Resistance trait with an unarmed strike, you can expend 2 ki points to nullify that trait until the end of your next turn.


17th-level Way of Mundanity feature

When you make a saving throw against a spell or other magical effect, you can use your reaction to gain advantage on the saving throw and resistance to damage from the spell. If the effect is a spell, you also regain a number of ki points equal to the level of the spell cast.

Once you have used this ability, you may not do so again until you finish a long rest.
