The Iron Dragon Monastery
The Iron Monastery is a secret Buddhist monastery hidden high on Mount Cho Oyu. Abbot Iron is the master of the temple, and currently, it’s only awakened member. However, the Monastery is home to many acolytes and monks, all of whom are masters of mediation and martial arts.
It has been Abbot Iron’s duty to protect the sleeping dragon that is the temple’s namesake since the time of the 4 Kingdoms. Fucanglong, the dragon, slumbers within the mountain, and exudes a powerful meditative trance. The dreams of the dragon accrete as sticks of sacred incense, the burning of which aids meditation and helps monks plumb the deeper mysteries of existence. It’s not uncommon for the monks of the Iron Monastery to drink Ash Tea to further aid their meditative focus.
