Way of the Shackled Beast

To unleash the beast within is to lose your soul to fury and make yourself a slave. A creature is only free when it understands itself. The beast must not be unleashed but rather set free. So it shall be with our people. Our salvation lies inward. To break your shackles without, you must shackle the beast within, The shackles of our enemy become our weapons against them. Those who seek to bind us do so not out of mastery but out of fear. These shackles are a symbol of our people’s power feared by the others. When you shackle the beast within, you tie your soul to it. When you and the beast are one the struggle is ended and both you and the beast become free at last.

Shackled Beast Technique

Starting when you choose this tradition at 3rd level, you can endure as much pain as you deal out, you are learning to master your inner rage. Whenever you hit a creature with one of the attacks granted by your Flurry of Blows, you gain one of the following effects…

• You have advantage on Strength checks and Strength saving throws until the end of your next turn.
• When you make your first attack on your turn, you can decide to attack recklessly. Doing so gives you advantage on melee monk weapon attack rolls during this turn, but attack rolls against you have advantage until your next turn.
• You have resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and
slashing damage until the end of your next turn.

Savage Pursuit

At 6th level, you gain the ability to savagely advance on their enemies. When you hit a creature with an opportunity attack, you can move up to half your speed immediately after the attack and as part of the same reaction. This movement doesn’t provoke opportunity attacks.

Intimidating Presence

Beginning at 11th level, you can use your action to frighten someone with your menacing presence. When you do so, choose one creature that you can see within 30 feet of you. If the creature can see or hear you, it must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw (DC equal to 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier) or be frightened of you until the end of your next turn. On subsequent turns, you can use your action to extend the duration of this effect on the frightened creature until the end of your next turn. This effect ends if the creature ends its turn out of the line of sight or more than 60 feet away from you. If the creature succeeds on its saving throw, you can’t use this feature on that creature again for 24 hours.

Retaliation

At 17th level, when you take damage from a creature that is within 5 feet of you. you can use your reaction to make a melee weapon attack against that creature.
