Way of the Subtle Force

Monks speak of a lone sensei who studied the forces of winds and momentum. Eventually, this lone sensei was able to tap into the source of magic that fuels spells such as magic missile and mage hand. For years they studied the many applications of force magic. The lone sensei observed the patterns of ki in these powerful magics and found a way to channel this form of ki into their strikes. Of those who sought out the lone sensei, only a handful were able to master the techniques. Those who attempt the Way of the Subtle Force are rare. Those who can survive the training to master the technique are even rarer.

Strike of the Extended Palm

Starting when you choose this tradition at 3rd level, you gain the ability to extend the range of your ki attacks up to your movement speed a number of times per day equal to your proficiency bonus.

These attacks can come from any direction, which can be changed at will with each strike.

You also gain the ability to cast the mage hand cantrip at will.

Darts of Force

At 6th level, you gain the ability to channel your ki into pummeling waves of energy. Immediately after you take the Attack action on your turn, you can spend 2 ki points to cast the Magic Missile spell as a bonus action.

You can spend additional ki points to cast Magic Missile as a higher-level spell. Each additional ki point you spend increases the spell’s level by 1. The maximum number of ki points (2 plus any additional points) that you can spend on the spell cannot exceed half your monk level rounded down.

Unstoppable Force

At 11th level, you gain the ability to channel momentum into your strikes. Upon striking a creature with the final blow of your attack, you can choose to move the target creature up to half your movement speed in the opposite direction of your attack.

Forceful Hand

At 17th level, your attacks are treated as if they were a Force effect in addition to Bludgeoning for the purposes of overcoming damage resistance or immunity. Among the normal effects of this, when you strike an inanimate object with your physical attacks, you ignore damage resistance and immunities of such objects and deal your full damage to them.
