So, You Wanna be a Reporter for the BBC?

If you fancy taking a less fully armed approach to UD, but with all the action, then the BBC is for you.

Ideal for Experienced Players, the BBC asks candidates to make a fresh alt from scratch with a clean identity. We ask this as, although most of the time in game you may be DEM, LUE, RR, ETC, the BBC is an impartial group, and therefore requires players with the contacts for stories, but without the baggage of reputation. Regular alt names will not be released to the general public, unless the player specifically asks for recognition.

A role with the BBC is for players that wish a change from the typical role playing styles of UD. You could be reporting on the DEM's efforts to bring order to Malton, you could be roaming with a large zombie pack or you could be following the devastation of a PKA attack. You could also be there on the front lines with a survivor group making a last stand...or you could be doing interviews. The opportunities are many within the BBC.

Your BBC Journalist will not take a hands on approach to UD. We don't go out of our to campaign against Zombies, Survivors or PKers, nor do we lend any direct assistance to any group, regardless of pulse. However, we have to make the XP somehow as well as defend ourselves as necessary, thus some 'kills' may be unavoidable. The preferred means of gaining XP are heals, revives and scans with Necrotech DNA extractors.

Your duties will involve using your contacts to allow your BBC Journalist to liaise with groups so we can follow stories and get interviews! You will then report your story to the BBC for the reading pleasure of our wiki readers or our radio audience.

You will also be working with other Journalists on stories, and in the event of War Correspondence, could be working in groups to get the best quality of coverage.

If you are interested, please talk leave us a message on our talk page and state your intent to pursue a career with the BBC! You will be required to provide the UDID of the character you will be using as your reporter.


The BBC seeks a non aggression pact with whoever we encounter. Being a non hostile group that depends on our ability to sift between groups without fear of reprisals to bring the news, we cannot afford to engage in either hostile or supportive roles for any group. We simply seek to be able to talk to you all, have fun, and report.

As of 29th of October, the BBC has it's first Non Aggression Pact!

  1. The Revolution - Viva La Revolution, and Viva La Freedom of Speech! The Revolution have stepped up as our first group of friends, and may it be the first of many!
  2. Red Rum - Well, it's not much of a pact, but they've assured us that they won't shoot us that much. Apparently, the gun still accidentally goes off occasionally, but I think that's about as close as we're gonna get. Cheers guys!
  3. DEM - We're currently in the process of obtaining a NAP, but we can't see it being a huge problem, seeing as they are the DEM, and we're a bunch of journalists who's most frightening asset is a clunky typewriter.
  4. PKA - After getting tipped off about the Samhain Slaughter, the BBC covered the large PKA event as our first major story. As a result, PKA members have agreed not to shoot reporters for now.
  5. Playing God - BBC Journalists can now go about their duties safer than before, as PK group Playing God have agreed (mostly) to not shoot our reporters.
  6. Flowers of Disease - The FOD have agreed to leave the BBC Reporters alone to do their work.

Ok, we don't have any Undead supporters yet, but it's early days. However, it is rumoured that the undead are in fact not dead at all, they are just ITV viewers. More on that story as it develops.
