Fun character idea: a ~mystical martial arts monk~, but based on Western Christian monks instead of spiritually-vague Eastern monks, and with just as little grasp on what the religion's actually like

I've been working on a monk class based on medieval Jewish scholars, plus a healthy misinterpretation of "wrestling with G-d"

@DialMforMara PLEASE TELL ME IT IS LITERAL WRESTLING, I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE @cryptovexillologist

@mithriltabby @hafnia @cryptovexillologist no; Jews representing this community are prohibited from covering their faces, as the result of extensive rabbinic debate regarding the passage in Genesis where Laban tricks Jacob into marrying Leah by having her wear a veil. However, kippah clips were invented specifically for this martial art, lest the symbol of your faith fall off during combat
