The Steel Palace is the main base of the Shi, Chinese inhabitants of San Francisco. It is a small, reinforced structure allegedly constructed out of metal salvaged from the Shi-huang-ti submarine they arrived in during the nuclear firestorm of 2077. Inside, protected by heavily armed guards (H&K G11s and Gauss rifles are common), lies the Shi Emperor mainframe (also a relic from the submarine) that records and analyzes the factions history, advising Ken Lee. In addition, biological, chemical and physical research labs are present in the complex, giving the Shi a substantial edge in the technological race in the wasteland.
The palace itself is divided in mostly labs, though there is the room with the Shi Emperor.
There are a lot of quests that can be completed/gained here:
- Get Chip's spleen from Dr. Wong
- The Shi/Hubologists need Enclave's vertibird plans from Navarro
- Kill AHS-9/Shi Emperor
- Transfer the fuel from Shi Emperor to PMV Valdez
