I thought this was a fantastic ability, even if the blade of the sword-saint doesn't actually have it (easy errata fix for this, just go to Special Qualities and select 'Monk'). I wanted to be able to do this to anything, though.

Going by what a blade of the sword-saint otherwise is, the ability is either a +1 cost plus 3,000gp, or a straight 25,000 gp; that can be a point of debate, but I've decided on just a straight +1 cost. I hunted around some to try to find something that added an ability onto a weapon, then mucked around with it a bit, and I seem to have succeeded. Made me so happy I hereby offer to the community the Monk weapon item power:

Code:
  <thing id="ipMonkWeap" name="Monk" description="This weapon in the hands of a monk becomes an instrument of deadly utility.

    <fieldval field="iPrice" value="1"/>
    <usesource source="TWO"/>
    <tag group="PowerReq" tag="Melee"/>
    <tag group="PowerType" tag="Weapon"/>
    <eval phase="First" priority="1000"><![CDATA[      
      if (parent.tagis[component.BaseWep] <> 0) then
      perform parent.assign[wSpecial.Monk]
          endif]]></eval>
    </thing>
By all means copy and use, post here if you have an issue with it (price, error, whatever). Just please keep the "TWO" (The Wyrm Ouroboros) source tag on it.
