Happy New Year Of The Monkey

It’s New Year in the Chinese Zodiac, and year of the Monkey. The monkey is a major feature in Chinese mythology, not least the anti-hero of Journey To The West, which to a certain generation in the UK was the basis for MONKEY and a long-term influence on us.

Like the Horse and unlike the Sheep last year, the role of monkeys in Chinese culture can suggest a variety of adventure hooks - monkeys who can speak or take human form, creatures that look like moneys to deceive.
