I actually have an adventure idea around the Ondonti:

A monastery of Eldathan monks (Disciples of the Yielding Way--I have developed them based on the water philosophy of Aikido) was established in Daggerdale to help bring peace to the region. They get a mission from the Church to rescue as many Ondonti from the Citadel of the Raven as possible. Since the monastery was established through a campaign, they call on their PC friends to help them (so that a balanced party can be used for the adventure). If successful, I could see the released ondonti either staying at the monastery or if too many were freed, a new settlement created for them somewhere (perhaps in the Snakewood, under the protection of Duskwood Dell).

If you want more information on the monastery, I can put that here. It's history, location, and other bits. For example, here are the level titles (I used the revised monk class as presented in Dragon #53) for the different monk ranks at the Monastery of the Three Streams:

Level Title
1 Novice
2 Initiate of the Rudiments
3 Initiate of the Elements
4 Initiate of the Principles
5 Brother
6 Disciple
7 Disciple of Secrets
8 Disciple of Mysteries
9 Immaculate
10 Master
11 Superior Master
12 Master of Mist
13 Master of Rain
14 Master of Snow
15 Master of Hail
16 Master of Springs
17 Master of Streams
18 Master of Rivers
19 Master of Lakes
20 Master of Oceans
21 Grand Master of the Waters

Senior Scribe TheIriaeban,

That is awesome! Thank you for sharing that. Though, I did notice something odd, and I was wondering if you may have an answer to it:

Why do you think the 12th title would be "Master of Mist", when that seems more Leiran? I mean, yeah, I get it: Eldath, water, etc. It just seems a little....comingled.

Best regards,

Master of Mist sounds better than Master of Drizzle or Master of Sprinkle. Monks are supposed to not have an ego but I couldn't really see subjecting someone with that much skill (a level 12 monk) with a title that even the Monks of the Yellow Rose would make fun of.

With Ondoti, along it being one of my favorites, others here might be interested that Eric L. Boyd and Thomas M. Costa, did a conversion of them for 3rd edition a long time ago:

Which can be converted to 5E.

As I understand it, there might be a 5E version in the works.
