Kong, Gorilla Psychic Monk from Dimension X

A psychic kung-fu fighting berserker ape . . . obviously!

Description:

The mysterious Kong arrives from Dimension X, wielding both physical and psychic martial arts.

Gorilla Psychic Monk class (with credit to a 5 year old game designer; Jeremy Deram [“People Them With Monsters”], whose excellent monk class design I’ve done terrible things to; and James Carpio, author of “Tales From the Fallen Empire” and creator of the Man-Ape class)

Hit Dice: d10

Requirements: None—There is only one in this dimension and his name is Kong.

Weapon and Armor Training: Psychic monks cannot use melee weapons of any sort; it is an insult to their training. They may use any range weapons, but they prefer ray-guns.

Unarmed Attacks: As a psychic monk becomes more experienced, he can deal more damage with these attacks.

Armor Bonus: Although monks cannot wear armor, they use the better of the following two methods to calculate their armor class:
AC=Personality Score
AC=10 + CL

Other Special Abilities: Whenever a psychic monk gains a level beyond the first, he gains a new special ability (these will be adapted from whatever weird cool idea my five year old dreams up.)
