Ruins & Ronin - The Monk Class

Here is my monk class for the upcoming Ruins & Ronin supplement.

MONK

Monks are ascetics who belong to one of the many temples dotting the land. Their training is spiritual and hones the body and mind towards the path of enlightenment. They strive to achieve perfection in all they seek to accomplish. In their quest for physical perfection they become masters of both armed and unarmed combat. Their mental training grants them knowledge into the mysteries of the universe. They are not spell casters and cannot gain divine spells as Yamabushi, nor are they the greatest fighters, but they have special talents that set them apart from the other classes.

Hit Dice: 1d6, After 9 hit dice the Monk gains only +2 hit points per level.
Armor Permitted: None
Weapons Permitted" Jo, Bo, Yari, and Naginata
Prime Attribute (5% experience bonus): Wisdom 13+, Dexterity 13+

Fleet of Foot: Due to the immense physical training the Monk is faster than most characters. The monk's base move rate is 15, their move rate increases by +1 per each level of experience. (up to a maximum of 30).

Uncanny Climb: The monk has an almost mystical ability to climb sheer surfaces with no hand holds or ropes. The base chance is 14 in 20 (on a d20 roll) and increases every 2 levels (up to a maximum of 19 in 20 chance at 12th level).

Martial Arts: A monk can attack with lethal damage using martial arts, the initial damage is 1d4 from these attacks. This increases to 1d6 at 5th level, 1d8 at 10th level, and 1d10 at 15th level.
Dodge: A monk has no need of armor, his intense training has made him quick and agile on his feet making it hard to hit him in combat. A monk has a base AC (in addition to any dexterity mod) based on the Monk advancement table below.
