The Armstead Library is a public library located in the suburb of Rolt Heights along the border with Pescodside to the east.

Situated in an old part of town, it was a respected place, with honest and hard working Librarians. Outside, it would appear to be rather plain looking, but once you stood inside, your lungs were filled with undisturbed air, and your eyes would widen at the vast collection of books, stacked neatly in shelf after shelf.

The book cases were lined around in a circle, horizontally pointing at each point of a star, made out of Sapphire encrusted Sunstone, in the very middle of the Library. The star sat in the middle of a circle with fountain, imprinted into the ground, around it. The library had two stories. When the sun stood in the middle of the sky, the circle was illuminated perfectly.

Until recent times, Armstead's inner glory was all but lost, with the star barely just shining. One day, however, a Bespectacled, spry Literature critic and enthusiast by the name of Mead Sheaffer happened to stumble by. Not impressed with the exterior, he decided to see how the inside looked. Amazed and heartbroken by the state of the Library, he set himself for months restoring the Library. Now, if your lucky, he might be sitting by a grandfather clock and a grand old fireplace, staring deeply into a book, hunched over, inhaling long fumes of a pipe with an odd, fizzing liquid.


None, it's a library. Go read a book! This is a no-PK zone. Anyone caught Pking will be added to the Burchell Arms Regulars Blacklist.

Barricade Policy

This building should be Very Strongly (VS+2) barricaded at all times. This is in accordance with the barricade plan set forth by the Burchell Arms Regulars, who routinely monitor the barricade level for this building. This building is meant to serve as a shelter for Malton's inexperienced survivors and entry point into other nearby fortified buildings.

Survivors who find the building's barricades below their assigned level are asked to assist in raising them back up in order to help ensure the safety of all the survivors staying inside the building. Any survivor found raising or lowering the barricades may be directly "put to the question" by any member of the B.A.R. present at that time. If this happens the accused survivor is required to present a valid reason for their actions or be labeled a zombie spy/death cultist and be judged accordingly.

Survivors are reminded that should any member of the B.A.R find the barricades raised higher that Very Strongly without any apparent danger to the building or area they have the authority to lower the barricades back down to Very Strongly in order to restore access to the building from the outside.
