Basic Info:

  • Clubs are Dark buildings.
  • The usual internal description of a Club reads as follows:
    "…in the near-darkness of the main dancefloor."
  • When powered by a portable generator, the internal description changes to the following:
    "Coloured spotlights highlight an empty stage, and distorted music echoes over the speakers."
  • Clubs can be barricaded normally.

Description

Club Godfry was a jazz club located in the suburb of Pescodside. The club has been around since 1935 and has featured several big names in jazz. It was founded by Gordon "The Jazz Man" Skapopolus (who died in 1989) and was being run by his wife, Lorraine Skapopolus, right up until the "Malton Incident". When the jazz club originally opened it featured other forms of music, such as folk music and beat poetry. In Christmas 1949, "The Weavers" played here, but it has been known as the home of live jazz music since it switched to an all jazz policy in 1957.

Club Godfry, one of Malton's jazz music hotspots before the "Malton Incident".
Club Godfry's performance area is actually located in its basement. Patrons would walk through the red double doors and down a steep flight of steps in order to enter a surprisingly small, wedge-shaped room with a low ceiling, decorated with various jazz posters and antique instruments on the walls. The bandstand is at the point of the wedge, with tables spread outward. At the back of the club is a small bar and along the wall stage left is a raised banquette, the so-called "cheap seats". At the rear on the right is a passageway to the back rooms of the club, including a tiny area where musicians used to hang out. From there, if a person followed the painted red line through a warren of twists and turns, they could find the washrooms or become hopelessly lost. One or the other.

A typical engagement at Club Godfry lasted six nights with sets at 9:00 and 11:00 PM. On Saturday and occasional Fridays a third set is added at 12:30 AM. Monday nights were reserved for the Godfry Jazz Orchestra (formally known as the "Big Blue Band") who played Club Godfry every Monday since 1966... until 2004 when the "Malton Incident" ended this tradition.

Barricade Policy

This building should be Extremely Heavily barricaded at all times. This is in accordance with the mutually agreed-upon Pescodside Barricade Plan set forth by local survivor groups and the Dulston Alliance, who routinely work together to monitor that the barricades for this building are at the aforementioned level. This building is meant to serve as a safehouse for Malton's veteran survivors.

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 lowering the barricades may be directly "put to the question" by any member of the Dulston Alliance or a vigilante-minded survivor who catches the culprit in the act. If this happens the accused survivor must present a valid reason for their actions or be labeled a zombie spy/death cultist and be judged accordingly. So always be cautious lest you find yourself summarily executed for crimes against humanity.
