Msg event.pngPiracy in Palembang

The city has been abandoned by the collapsed Majapahit kingdom and for decades has been plagued by Chinese pirates who use the port as a base for their smuggling operations. When Admiral Zheng He weighed anchor in the city during his expeditions, he drove out the pirates and appointed Shi Jinqing to rule the city. But Zheng He and Shi Jinqing are now dead, and the pirates have to begun to gather once again. Left unchecked they will surely attempt to retake seize the city.
