    Monk Controversy: Medieval vs Martial Arts

    5e had an opportunity to put the Monk class back in its proper place, and Wotc blew it! Martial Arts monks clearly belong in the land of Kara Tur, and the Mendicant Monk would be a more period-appropriate sub-class of the Cleric. Fantasy atmosphere gets ruined with bare fist monks defeating platemail combatants. Other genre-busters like muskets or phasers are not too far a stretch when Monks are pounding away without having to spend a single gold piece on equipment... Gotta love that movie "Dorkness Rising"; it addresses the issue with awesome humor.
