The Storm Monk functions by building energy with his rapid martial arts attacks. Each time his fists connect, he gains energy against a specific target. The storm monk sacrifices some weapon damage in the short term for energy points that can then be expended against that target. His accumulation of energy allows for a variety of finishing moves to be performed- some damaging, some movement based, and some that provide team utility.
