||The town is allied closely with Wu Tze Lee. About 80% of the
male population leaves with the fishing fleet to go to Wu Tze Lee. They arrive at Wu Tze
Lee on days seven and eight. Those that arrive on day eight are destroyed before they can
land. Of the junks that arrive at Wu Tze Lee on day seven about 50% escape and return to
Hiao Jaio on day seventeen. Only two percent of the men that left, return.
||Most shops in Hiao Jaio will be shut. The port has not
closed down. The last of the junks left for Wu Tze Lee on day two.
||Unless the players tell them, the locals will not know of
the defeat of Wu Tze Lee by Hel Churl until day 27 when a messenger arrives overland from
Wing Ting Mai. The town will then go into a state of shock and mourning from which it will
never recover. A lot of the people leave to live in other towns.
||In the village are all the things you would expect: temples
to Buddhism and Taoism, Government departments, shops, except that most are closed. The
Taoists are running the town. They will be only too happy to side with the Tang's
(especially if they helped with the defence of Wu Tze Lee). If the party mention that they
were on the side of Hel Churl they will be shunned and told to leave.
||The players will be able to get their passports stamped at
the customs office, which is running on a skeleton staff. There in no police force
operating in the town as all the men capable of fighting have gone to Wu Tze Lee.
||The locals know/believe the following:
|They are on the side of Wu Tze Lee. |
|That Prince Hei Ho Bang is the most evil man in the world. |
|The town leader is Yu Wu Shi. |
|The Taoists are in charge of running the town until the new leader returns or a new
leader is chosen.|
After day 27:
|The Prince lost the war but the treacherous Hel Churlians defeated their forces. There
is a general bitter hatred to all Hel Churlians, Heis and Mings. |
|The Taoists will choose a new leader in three months, at the next equinox.|
