Poschengband Skillmaster: what skills would make a fun monk?

You decide what fun means, but explain where and why you’d place the other ten points!

5 archery
3 perception
1 create ammo
1 stone skin

5 demon
3 sorcery
clear mind
massacre

For an eventual demonlord monk. Heck if you don't play this I'll get round to having another go.

This sounds cool as hell. Never played with sorcery or demon magic. I’m at work now, can you give me an idea of how they’d help a monk?

Are you going to struggle from the lack of some other skills like speed / saving throw / magic device / whatever? (I haven't played Skillmaster)

One question, Retaliation seems like a huge portion of a Monk's damage, will you suffer severely from not having it?

pretty sure you get retaliation if you take 5 unarmed pips (in fact you do)

@Brouhaha - Demon gives ok-ish offense spells (who cares kick/punch everything), detects (eventually telepathy), nice resists & eventually demonform (book 3), demonlord form(book 4 & very nice, like *very nice*)
sorcery is just util, could be replaced by speed/device or hps by preference.
Massacre gives a whirlwind style atttack
clear mind is just a mana regen thing

So far I've found only ONE problem with Skillmasters. They don't start in town. Unless you pick Martial Arts or Stealth, there's a shockingly good chance you're going to die to an irate sparrow, town drunk, or novice anything before you can grab your first weapon or spellbook.

Wobbly, go crazy with your demon monk! Post your character and plenty of notes on the ladder. I think I'm going to try a Throwing Weapon guy. I wonder if you can do a thrown backstab with three points in stealth...
