About the Exalted Path Monastery
The Reservoir District stretches from the city-state’s eastern wall to the western wall. Most of the sprawl consists of tenement housing for free merchants, poor common artisans, and laborers, but it also boasts a few notable landmarks, such as the Exalted Path Monastery.
The monastic tradition of Nibenay has seen a resurgence in the last few cen turies. The monks teach austerity, physical readiness, psionic enlightenment, and the quiet acceptance of authority. The Exalted Path is the largest of the city- state’s monasteries, led by a frail old abbot named Thong Nal. Recently, a number ofyounger monks have rebelled against the centuries-old neutrality of the Exalted Path, and they have begun to speak out forcefully against the excesses of the nobility—and the Shadow King’s court.
