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).
[See https://nwn.fandom.com/wiki/Unarmed_base_attack_bonus for UBAB progression.]

Lvl 2: gains feat - Weapon Focus: Unarmed

Lvl 7: gains feat - Wholeness of Body (10 min CD; heals damage = Monk lvl x WIS Mod; removes debuffs per Restoration spell)
Lvl 10: begins Unarmed Combat Mastery progression [See chart below]
Lvl 12: gains feat - Uncanny Dodge

Lvl 20: gains feat - Whirlwind Attack
Lvl 20: begins Armed Combat Mastery progression [See chart below]
Lvl 25: gains feat - Improved Whirlwind Attack

Unarmed Combat Mastery [Grants scaling Unarmed AB & Damage bonuses]
Lvl 10 -> AB = 0; Damage = 1
Lvl 13 --> AB = 1; Damage = 1
Lvl 16 --> AB = 1; Damage = 2
Lvl 18 --> AB = 2; Damage = 2
Lvl 20 --> AB = 2; Damage = 3
Lvl 24 --> AB = 3; Damage = 3
Lvl 28 --> AB = 5; Damage = 6

Armed Combat Mastery [Grants scaling Monk Weapon Damage bonus]
Lvl 20 --> Damage = 1
Lvl 24 --> Damage = 2
Lvl 28 --> Damage = 3

Additional Selectable Feats:
Ki Strike +4 = grants an additional +2 damage to Unarmed attacks
Ki Strike +5 = grants an additional +2 damage to Unarmed attacks
Weapon Focus: Katana = grants an AB bonus that stacks with equipment at lvls 23 = +1; 25 = +2; 28 = +3

I'm not trying to give trouble or anything but simply curious.

"Additional Selectable Feats" Does it mean it's free feat provided or you may select it before Epics?

The only reason why i asked is because these Feats are already in the Epic selectable feats for Monk in the first place in NWN. Hence, just confirming if there's any special reason that it's highlighting again here.

I believe its to display the effects provided by the feats, perhaps it could be renamed to Additional Feat Effects to clarify?
