The Shadows from Hell's Kitchen
Places To See
New York City is wild, wonderful, and extremely dangerous – all rolled up into one mega-experience. The Big Apple is not the ideal place for green ShadowRunners – beginning your Shadowrunning career in The Big Bad City is very much like playing russian roulette with a .45 ACP. Almost always terminal, but with some incredible luck some few 0.1% manage to survive to (eventually) make it. Having good contacts and excellent mentors can increase this survival percentage somewhat, but you can only do so much for a newbie in The Concrete Jungle, I’m afraid.
Nightclubs, Bars, Hideaways, Restaurants, Casinos, Taverns, Road houses, Saloons, Speakeasies, Cafes and other Night Spots all figure into the average ShadowRunner’s list of favorite meeting places. Besides being chock full of interesting diversions, they are incredibly hard to spy on someone who can manage to casually employ these places’ environments to counter those attempts.
As a side note, it is often times a crapshoot, but these places can also (rarely) become really hot investments – not your usual take in the ShadowRun environment. Yet it does happen, occasionally, much to the fascination of the Shadows. Invest at your own risk, Chummer, charlatans exist everywhere…
