Among The Dragon Lines
The Drunken Monkey
The Drunken Monkey doesn’t look particularly interesting, but the fact that it’s hugely popular with Hong Kong’s expatriate mercenary community makes it a hot spot for shadowrunners. Just inland from the beach, the Drunken Monkey is an unassuming pub constructed of visible wood beams and filled with tables carved from large pieces of driftwood and old wooden boat hulls. The woodwork is intentionally sturdy and inexpensive; brawls and bar fights are all too common here. Even the bartenders here—most of whom are orks—could easily pass for pirates, and likely were earlier in their careers. The selection of food is limited and simple, mostly variations of rice and fish, but most of the patrons come here for the wider selection of Chinese beers and strong rice wines.
For shadowrunners, this is the kind of place to find mercenary or pirate work or to hire last-minute muscle for a job. Be careful, though; since the mercenary outfit Combat Inc moved to Macao, the selection here tends to be risky. Be careful about turning your back on whomever you hire—they might
just decide to “renegotiate.”
