Although it would be impossible for me to choose my favourite Discworld book or character, The Monastery of Oi Dong has to be my favourite place, and I am with Wen completely on what constitutes a perfect day!

So when the MTS monthly theme was announced as Fantasy I knew JUST what I wanted to create!
I present to you my version of the Monastery of Oi Dong, complete with cherry trees, procrastinators and mandalas;
Here you will find The Great Hall with the Procrastinators; Dojos with training dummies and board breakers; Qu's classrooms for technical experiments; The Mandala Hall; the Abbot's Quarters [and rooms for the other monks, and a room for Lu Tze]; The Garden of Five Elements, the Cherry Trees that are always in blossom, and, of course, ..... the Garden of Five Surprises!

All ready for you to CAS your own set of History Monks, including Wen the Eternally Surprised, Qu and, of course, everybody's favourite History Monk, Lu Tze [not just a sweeper]!

I had such fun making this [all from my own imagination since I couldn't find a Josh Kirby [or Paul Kidby] illustration of Oi Dong anywhere!] and hope you have fun playing with it in your game.

The rooves are all a bit quirky [without getting silly] since all the rooves in Discworld are, to say the least, unique!

For those of you from Roundworld who are unfamiliar with Oi Dong, for your edification I include the following [click buttons to read]:

Lot Size: 6x6
Lot price furnished 198,947
Lot price unfurnished 152,192

The download includes two patterns and some terrain paints [*see below for details].
No other custom content is included in the download.

This download does NOT include Lisen801's Buddha.
It can be found here on MTS []
You will need to download it yourself if you wish to place it in your shrine room.

The following items can be downloaded separately:
- Procrastinators
- Bonsai Mountains
- Discworld pictures
They can be found here:

The following store items are FREE, but they are not included in the download so you will need to download these from
- Belle of the Parade [bronze? statue] click here
- Mask of Mystique click here

Fast Lane Stuff pack is only required for the flags in the Garden of Five Elements.
If you do not have this stuff pack you may still download this lot, the only difference will be that you have no flags to represent 'air'.

Thank you for looking
