- Hello all.

I spent some time over at the Sixth World Wiki before coming here, but I wasn't able to find anything too substantial. In short, I'm looking for basic info on the status of Southeast Asia generally, and the Philippines specifically, in around 2070. ( I'm writing a short SR4 campaign which will be taking the players to the Philipines, as well as possibly Thailand and or Cambodia.)

If it so happens that there ISN'T any official info on that part of the world, would people be willing to weigh in with their best guesses and / or neat ideas?

"Cyberpirates" has about 30+ pages about the situation in the Philippines in 2059. It deals most with the rebel organisation HUK and its fight against the japanese occupation which is also described.

"Dragons of the sixth world" has a short update about the Philippines early 2063 (about 2-3 pages). Since the great eastern dragon Masaru is involved with HUK.

I dont recall if there are any mention about the Philippines other than these. I dont think we have had an update about the area in 2070, but i might be wrong ofc.

Shadows of Asia has a ten pages covering the situation in philippines in 2064. That's the newest info that I can find.

Shadows of Asia gives you about 9 pages of information about the island nation - it's pre-Crash 2.0, but that's the most actual info on the area so far.

In SR4 (corporate havens)it mentions the Japs leaving the Phillipenes and going back home at the behest of the Emperor.

There was a line or two about Masaru possibly getting his clavs dirty into the clash somewher in one of the Sota books, sorry but there's almost nothing post-crash.

I imagine we'll see something when the Sixth World Almanac is released.

Yup, page 162 of State of the Art 2064. There's about news report a third of a page long describing four days of rioting kicking off as the Huk's revolution kicks into high gear as they try to storm Subic Bay. Also a mention and couple of shadowtalk comments making it fairly obvious that Ares and Yamatetsu are backing the Huk. The only other mention of Masaru is on page 29 about how the female dragon Bai Zhenzhu has been hosting get togethers at her mansion on Hainan island for a range of people including Lung and Ryumyo, sometimes at the same time, and that Masaru has started attending some of them.
