Among The Dragon Lines
May Day Field
Situated in the dense Eastern Jungles of Gansu is a smuggler’s den like no other. At one time this airstrip probably had another name, but now-a-days the locals call it “Mayday Field”. Part airport, part blackmarket bizarre and part post-apocalyptic fortress, the
outpost is a common way-point for Gansu warlords, Mega Corps & Mercenary groups to move goods in and out of the territory The centerpiece of the field is a makeshift compound built on (and out of) the carcass of an old USAF cargo plane that crashed here during the Repubulic Civil War in 2027. The plane remained hidden deep in the Jungle until it was 30 years later.
The Field is home to a loose coalition of veteran smugglers and black market merchants. At any given time, the Field supports a steady flow of air traffic. Often smugglers will stop at the port to refuel, offload their cargo or just lay low long enough to throw off any pursuit. Mayday Field has also become something of a trading post for the rabble that live in the surrounding villages. They travel to the Field to barter for supplies and often camp around the outskirts of the field or squat in the various abandoned hangers.
