Shanghai is a city in the Coastal Provinces.
Shanghai is a pirate haven, a 21st century version of the legendary pirate haven of Tortuga. Though there are some legitimate companies operating in the city, the real moneymaker is privateering. The pirates and privateers are able to walk the docks of Shanghai and conduct their business without fear of attack as there is an unwritten code that is observed while in the city, the pirates will not attack each other while in Shanghai. It is also a center of Triad activity, including the Red Dragons.
