Ruled by a sleeping, ancient Gold Dragon, his wishes are interpreted by the dreams of the wizards of Gongxi. Lhasa is also the home of the warrior monks of the Shaoshi temple. The lands are fertile and peaceful, and produce an abundance of rice, wheat and seafood - of which the Lhasians are famous for their culinary skills and exotic dishes.
