    They're translucent, and deal Force damage. Using Ki, a monk can summon them for 10 minutes and start using them to attack immediately, without moving their body at all. Just stand 10 feet away and have them start hitting. At later levels you can summon a ghostly mask/face, and finally a full body, getting benefits from this as you go.

    Astral Self monks tend to have some sort of internal struggle with their identity, personality, and whatever else makes up their "self". My character in particular rolls a save every time she summons them to see if her highly protective alternate personality is going to come out and fight her friends.
    ...So, extra attacks and stuff if you make a save? Is the save thing just a flavor thing or is that the archetype in general?

    Ah, you are correct, I forgot to mention. It is a self-imposed complication. The class as normal, you can summon them with just a bonus action and some ki. With her I have her use her full turn of actions (besides movement) to summon them and then roll a save.

    But hey, I got an Inspiration point out of "going along" with the part of the story I practically took the steering wheel away from the DM for a moment with because I was so excited to make it happen

    Cool. I'm guessing it's one of the better archetypes? Though to be fair it can't be quite as bad as 3.5e; from what I've seen the gap between casters and martials is much smaller and everyone typically has nice things in general.

    It is pretty good. 1 ki point for 10 minutes of 2 magical attacks a round is quite strong, especially at lower levels when you wouldn't really be affecting nonmagic resistance as a monk until 6th level. But I think there may be stronger archetypes, or better ways to play this one (ik I'm not going to play it optimized, for the sake of RP). At the same time yes the gap is pretty small. Monks get a lot of nice things.

    I know it's not the best in the OOTS art style, but if she could be barefoot? Or if that doesn't work, having her feet be only just visible below the dress.

    Also, if the brown could be a bit lighter of a shade? Closer to olive.
    Here you go:
