I ran around the market and ended up in a club called Lucky Money... Some Aussie chicks were sitting in front, waiting for some sucker to pay their entry fees, 40 credits in total... I was that sucker. (The worst part is that if you knock them out and loot them, they've actually got 100 credits each! Disgusting liars!) Once inside, when you talk to the blonde, you ask her to dance, and she says only if you buy her a drink. If you agree and talk to her again, you loop through the same conversation. Jeez, endless money hole for just a shitty dance, not even sex. Well, screw that. Four tattooed chicks on the side were much friendlier, and danced with me happily. At least the Aussie told me the name of the club's owner - Max Chen. Then, I talked to some dude and he told me this guy was actually running the Red Arrow Triad from inside this place. Nice! Then, some woman offered me a blonde companion named Ling, actually the sexiest female model I've encountered in the game so far... As sexy as 2000 3D graphics can be, of course. I refused, but asked her for Chen's location. She told me to ask at the bar.
The bar was on the second floor, and unexpectedly, I started a philosophical conversation with the guy behind the bar. JC, despite everything that's happened, is still a bit blue-pilled, as he started complaining about the "dictator" of China. The bar guy said better that than corporate rule, as is in the West. He was a wise guy, saying that a society which nurtures weakness will inevitably have that weakness float up to its leaders. Hong Kong seems like a nice place, the police armed and everywhere, but Triads still somehow warring in the shadows... Anyway, I was told the way to Chen was through a door behind the bar, which wasn't even closed. I went right in and talked to him. Apparently Tracer Tong is affiliated with the enemy Triad... I'd come to the wrong place to ask. Chen forgave my ignorance and told me to tell Luminous Path (Tong's Triad, apparently), that they must return the Dragon Fang.
I wandered around the bar a bit more and found a few interesting scenes, like VersaLife employees talking about sensitive matters, some Chinese middle-aged woman trying to persuade a guy whose in-game name was literally "Loser" to date her daughter... And four Russian sailors enjoying a table dance by some chick on the last floor. Nice! Anyway, I made my way out and, after exploring a bit, found some guy called Gordon Quick who was affiliated with the Luminous Path. He knew my brother, but wasn't willing to trust me before I proved myself... I was to find Maggie Chow, some woman who was responsible for the missing sword (that's what "Dragon Fang" was), and starting the war between the two Triads.
He told me where Chow lived, and I headed to her place. On the way, I met a cute schoolgirl (same model as Ling, different hair colour), who was talking about how her mother was telling her to stay in the neighbourhood because there were Triads fighting outside. Chow was in some big mansion, and after catching the elevator up I was not only able to get to her apartment, but I was also expected... Yeah, that isn't fishy at all. Her fat maid showed me around the place, and eventually led me to her. We talked and she seemed shocked learning that my brother had died... Told me to look at some police vault for evidence about the sword. Afterwards, I decided to snoop around the apartment, and her maid annoyingly followed me. When I started hacking the computer, the bitch whipped out a pistol and opened fire... I had no choice but to knock her out with the baton. The computer was connected to the Majestic-12 network... That said it all.
I then headed to the 7th floor via a service elevator, and found some junkie woman there... She wanted some money for a fix, but I told her she's so far into withdrawal she might as well try to shake the habit. She then hated me and told me she hoped I died soon... But I remained nice and made sure she didn't die in the battle with MJ-12 soldiers that ensured after I blew up a door nearby. There were 5 of them and one was equipped with something really powerful, temporarily blinding me on impact... But I soon realised how to defeat them - the good old gas grenades. I explored their place and it was apparently connected to Chow's place. How annoying! Nevertheless, I also found where the sword was hidden, and opened the vault it was in by hacking a nearby computer. I even saw a video message for Chow from Simons. Tracer Tong called me and instructed me to take the sword and show it to the Red Arrow boss, as proof for Chow's betrayal.
I talked to the Luminous Path dude again, and he was happy that I was successful with my mission. He told me to get back to him to let him know about Red Arrow's response. I headed to the club again, and showed the sword to Chen. He was really shocked that Chow had betrayed him, but decided to call a truce with Luminous Path until an investigation is complete. Just as we were talking, Majestic-12 troops attacked... And they were some mech-like commandos. Fortunately, the Red Arrow guys were much more numerous, and killed them off promptly (although a few died, as well as some of the club's customers who became collateral damage. My would-be companion Ling survived, though, as did the annoying Aussie girls). As I exited the club, annoyingly, there was another commando waiting outside, but the heroic Chinese police managed to kill him. I got back to the Luminous Path dude, he was happy, and told me how to get to Tracer Tong, the entrance to the Luminous Path place was apparently right there.
After running around the place a bit, I eventually met with Tracer Tong. Before that, however, some guys had told me that another American had arrived shortly before me. "Reyes made it," I thought with relief, but it was actually Jacobson, the computer guy. I found him and talked to him, he'd made it to Hong Kong with no problems. Hopefully, Reyes has, too, but I'm yet to find out. Tracer Tong managed to deactivate my killswitch, and it became clear I would use this place as a base kinda like UNATCO HQ before. I could heal myself and restock on ammo, etc. My next mission would be to infiltrate VersaLife's lab (the door to which I already encountered a couple of times on the way to that bar, but didn't have the code), and convince a manager there to assist me. Oh, and Jacobson told me that Daedalus isn't even a person, but some rogue AI or something... What? Oh, and the Tracer Tong network is called "Illuminati", with the pyramid logo and everything... Seriously now?
