Description

A pirate station built on the largest asteroid in the asteroid field of the Herisiod System.

Entering


Upon trying to enter Zheng Shi for the first time one must Submit the password "Fuck You" or ask for help from the crew or run. Submitting the wrong password results to space battle. You can defeat all enemies or slip in. Losing leads to bad end.

  • The password can be obtained from Kiro after completing her distress call
  • Calling on Paige if she is a crewmate will cause her to insult and threaten the harbormaster causing them to grant you access

After entering Zheng Shi using the password Steele will be challenged by Urbolg. Losing once allows you to try land on the asteroid again and be challenged by him again but losing a second time results in him taking you as his pet (bad end). If the player uses the wrong password but by some miracle repels Zheng Shi's orbital defenses, Urbolg will not bother attacking the player since he believes that you have already proven yourself to be as strong or stronger than most of the pirates on the station.

Advance inside


It is considered a necessity for the player to interact with Overseer Maike at least once in order to recover the Zheng Shi Data Probe. This is because the probe is located in the The Scaffolds which by default is inaccessible. The only way to get there is to either obtain the Spacesuit Helmet from her, combine it with the incomplete Pirate Spacesuit to create the Pirate Spacesuit, and Spacewalk to repair the elevator to The Forge. Other space suits are currently not accepted.

Alternatively, the player can pretend to be a Slave and be sent to the Slave Pen where they may join a slave chain-gang, be picked out with Ardia by Agrosh, and taken to The Forge's break room. If the player doesn't take the opportunity to join the chain-gang the only option they will have at that point is to fight Overseer Maike and take the helmet by force. Losing leads to bad end.

NPCs

Hostiles

General Strategy: Most of the enemies found on Zheng Shi are roaming the mines and forge. It is, understandably, very hot and sweaty in these parts of the asteroid not to mention jerry-rigged machinery, and toxic chemicals are distributed all over to catalyze the mining and construction processes. So, the hostiles encountered have taken precautions to keep the cool in and the heat, electricity, and hazard materials out. With the exception of bosses and the Mining Robot, most of the enemies have Massive resistance to burning, electric, and corrosive attacks. But, homeostasis can be disrupted if the player takes advantage of cooling systems with freezing attacks. Just like on Tarkus mechanical enemies like the Mining Robot, the Excavation Robot, and Roz can be short circuit-ed using electrical attacks. The weapons that each enemy uses widely vary based on their own class.

Trivia

  • Zheng Shi is named after the English pronunciation of Ching Shih, one the most successful and mysterious Chinese Pirates of the 19th century.
  • If the character of the player goes to any direction of the Recreation Deck, in time it appears on the opposite side.
