Bodhidharma - the Kung Fu Monk
Bodhidharma was the 28th Patriarch from Budda and the 1st Patriarch in China. He arrived in China circa 520 CE and met with Emperor Wu. Credited with teaching the Shaolin monastery monks the art of kung fu, he supposedly cut off his eyelids so he could meditate longer, and from them the tea plant was created.
Bodhidharma is a Buddhist hero, you need a Buddhist Pagoda to get him to your city.
Bodhidharma halves the cost of:
- Tea Curing Shed and tea bushes
- Tea Shop
Bodhidharma can bless:
- Tea Curing Shed: the shed once produces 4 loads instead of one. Another blessing is needed if you want another 4 loads.
- Watchtower: the tower evolves without the needed desirability and stays evolved for 6 months, after that it will devolve again if the desirability of the area isn't high enough.
Bodhidharma acts like a:
- Buddhist monk
- Adds 1 unit of tea to the houses he passes
Bodhidharma also gives these benefits:
- He will satisfy tea requests by non-player cities: you still have to dispatch the goods yourself like normal, but the tea won't be taken from your warehouses.
- He fights enemies, only at home, not abroad.
The following monuments are associated with Bodhidharma:
- Temple Complex
- Grand Pagoda
