Special Traits

  • Amphibious. The loran monk can breathe air and water.
  • Evasion. If the loran monk is subjected to an effect that allows it to make a Dexterity saving throw to take only half damage, the loran monk instead takes no damage if it succeeds on the saving throw, and only half damage if it fails.


  • Multiattack. The loran monk makes three unarmed strikes or three dart attacks.
  • Unarmed Strike. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d8 + 3) bludgeoning damage. If the target is a creature, the target must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or be stunned until the end of the loran monk’s next turn.
  • Dart. Ranged Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, range 20/60 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d4+3) piercing damage.


Lorans claim both the ancient patrons deities of the sea and the genie race of marids as their progenitors. When these protean creators foresaw a need for disciplined, loyal aquatic allies, they enlisted genie and elemental-touched mortal volunteers to help shape a new race of agents to guard against the return of their dark and destructive powers of the sea.

Lorans appear as beautiful humanoids, though reserved in their demeanor.

Guardians of Ancient Knowledge. While not every loran chooses to pursue a monastic lifestyle, many have endured centuries guarding the memories and relics of the Patrons since the disappearance of the old races and often the cataclysmic devastation of their worlds thereafter. Their discipline as unyielding as the coral ruins they live in, their mission controlled their culture, including career, lifespan, mating, and reproduction. They meditated on the history and teachings of their immortal patrons, passing principles down from generation to generation. They also maintained constant readiness from outside threats, knowing one day an enemy would come to shatter their walls and lives in search of domination.
