Here's how I would write up Arelith's current custom Monk content.

Differences from base NWN Monk.

- Spot and Perform added as class skills.

- Tongue of the Sun and Moon: Each Monk level counts as 2 Lore ranks when it comes to understanding an unlearned language.

- Monk Weapon Proficiency: This feat allows effective use of club, dagger, handaxe, light crossbow, heavy crossbow, quarterstaff, shuriken, kama, katana, and sling. In addition, the club, quarterstaff, shuriken, and kama benefit from the monk unarmed base attack bonus (UBAB).
