A draconian who has eschewed the study of weaponry and magic in order to train in the art of unarmed combat. Its scaly fists, well-thewed legs, and mighty tail rain down blows upon its opponents.

“Trogdor was a man!
I mean, he was a dragon-man!
Or... maybe he was just a dragon.
And the Trogdor comes in the night!”
-The Brothers Chaps, “Trogdor”. 2003.

Useful Info

Draconian monks are lightly armored combatants that fight with their fists. And feet. And tails! Despite their lack of weapons, they're still capable of causing serious injury. They are common in the Realm of Zot. Randomly generated monks are green draconians, who spit out a Poisonous Cloud.

Tips & Tricks

Although by no means harmless, their complete lack of spells renders draconian monks one of the least dangerous draconian professionals you can encounter. Low AC characters should still be careful around them, of course, but make them a lower priority than any of the draconian casters. Just keep an eye out for any dangerous breath weapons they might have.

They have high EV, so use your most accurate attacks, and be prepared for a long fight if you choose to go mano-a-mano with them. However, their aforementioned lack of spells makes it easy to walk away from them.
