Vast majority of Crooketon is in ruins. Lack of human presence has given the undead population free-range over the majority of the buildings. Buildings that are repaired are ruined shortly there-after. It's a losing battle. -- TheBardofOld 16:29, 2 May 2012 (BST)

Most of the buildings in the central area are in ruins, including the hospitals, the fire station and the phone mast Theobald building, where somebody has spraypainted Happy Halloween on a wall. Groups of zombies are drifting around and are inside or outside most buildings, and few if any survivors can be found.

CrooketonScoutReport.png

NecroWatch reported in from The Antell Building. There were 5 zombies within scouting range, none posing any real threat except to the survivors who were loitering outside. 2 at Jefferson Sq, 1 @ Methodius General & one at The Theobald Building. There was also a zombie and survivor out front of Kirby's Auto.--Dr Mycroft Chris 22:59, 2 May 2009 (BST)

January

January 29th

The suburb seems mostly repaired, many buildings are powered and zombie presence is very sparse. Most buildings remain devoid of life, though. Crooketon is now a tidy ghost suburb, instead of a ruined ghost suburb. --Doc Groucho 00:58, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

January 24th

The northern side is mostly repaired, though a few zombie groups are attacking the northern Dewberry Building, Margaret General and Matheos General Hospital.--Doc Groucho 13:28, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

January 14th

Zombies seem to be coordinating to sleep one in each ruined building, hampering any reconstruction effort. A great commitment of a few heavy-duty survivors is required to reclaim each building. --Doc Groucho 15:51, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

January 12th

St. Dorotheus Church, one of the few safehouses in the area, was lost over night, after some clever zombies figured out where the people was coming from. The amount of ruins and lack of a regularly working hospital is making life harder for infected survivors. This morning a couple more zombies were seen standing at the revive point. Antheros General Hospital was recovered by midday, though it isn't expected to last. --Doc Groucho 15:17, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Update: It didn't last.

The status in SE Crooketon is grey. Repair work is progressing slowly. --Doc Groucho 22:00, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

January 8th

Update: Mores is EHB, unlit, and empty, and the hospital next door (Methodius) is lit, EHB, and also empty. The immediate area is somewhat well caded, though breakins are frequent. --BobBoberton 02:41, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Mores Lane PD is lost. Hungry stragglers are strafing all kinds of buildings, making the suburb unsuitable for anybody that doesn't sleep with one eye open and the backpack on. Finding a peaceful neighborhood requires some walking and tools for repairing shelters are a must. --Doc Groucho 15:56, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

January 7th

Update: Almost all buildings have zombies outside, and there are at least six groups of five or more zombies. Overall zombie count is likely to be over 60, which is quite a feat for this ghost version of a forgotten suburb. It seems that any interesting building will be ruined, again, in a couple days.

Damage at the center of Crooketon is speeding up as a combined mob of twenty zombies pushes against a couple survivor pockets. Margaret General Hospital was ruined during the night. Scouting found one dead corpse, possibly from a victim, though the facility has been kept empty most of the time. As the sun set the 6th, the local revive point was still occupied by five standing zombies. Shortage of generators and transmitters is keeping the suburb silent, dark and cold, just a bit more than usual --Doc Groucho 03:53, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

January 6th

Margaret hospital has been up and powered for several days, and zombies from the surrounding area have gathered outside of it and are trying to shut it down. Although survivor resistance is dauntingly small, their skill and experience have prevented the fall of the suburb into complete ruin. --Doc Groucho 15:06, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

January 4th

The northern factory and the surrounding buildings have been overrun and the remaining survivors are leaving the last safehouse. Most buildings were empty and few casualties are expected. --Doc Groucho 20:35, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

January 1st

Feral zombies are slowly ravaging the center of Crooketon. It looks like what ever survivor presence that was here has vanished. Within a week this suburb is probably gonna fall back into ghosttown status. If you are gonna sleep here, check your surroundings. The break ins are slow, but they do happen.--Slavic 22:07, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

December 28th

Zombies are slowly laying waste to the northeastern quarter of the suburb. Resistance from a handful of survivors is barely enough to slow their progress. --Doc Groucho 20:30, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

December 26th

There are few ruins in the northern side, and the factory there is powered, but survivor presence there is extremely scarce. A group of five zombies is attacking the Dewberry building. Even though it's still a ghost suburb, sleeping safely is possible if you check what's going on outside and keep barricades up. --Doc Groucho 14:10, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

December 25th

The center of the suburb isn't ruined, though it remains unpopulated. Feral Survivors have powered up the SE factory and the phone mast. The radio transceiver at Bees Building is still operative. Most zombies are solitary wanderers. --Doc Groucho 16:02, 25 December 2008 (UTC)

December 24th

Southern Crooketon is recovering and looks a bit less like a ghost town. Jefferson Square revivification point is clear. A radio station is running and broadcasting information in the district frequency (26.12). Methodius General Hospital and Mores Lane Police Department have been barricaded and powered during the last days, despite the efforts of 6-10 local zombies. There aren't news from the northern side of the suburb yet. --Doc Groucho 13:24, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

December 23rd

Very small pockets of daring survivors are working in the area while dodging a roughly equal number of zombies. Power and other services are very patchy. Nobody should sleep in a building without checking how many zombies are outside. --Doc Groucho 21:10, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

December 20th

Traveling through the western part of the suburb most of the buildings encountered are in ruin. I've yet to travel east to see if any of the resource buildings are up and manned. The zombie population seems to be just a sporadic amount of ferals, nothing to series; that is of course in the west. Scarbrow's report is accurate.--Slavic 07:04, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Most of the suburb is still ruined, but there are pockets of resistance here and there. Testing the Revive Point. This could be the spear point to retake the Northern Western section of Malton, that is almost completely taken by Extinction. Scarbrow 12:47, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

At least 31 zombies on the streets. Breakdown of the Tactical Resource Points:

  • 1 Police dept & 4 hospitals: ruined.
  • 2 factories: 1 ruined, 1 without power.
  • 3 auto repairs: 1 ruined, 2 without power.

Much of the suburb is in ruins, although there are a few signs of survivor occupation. As there are no powered TRPs, and most are ruined, upgraded to Dangerous. --Funt Solo QT Scotland flag.JPG 19:59, 5 October 2008 (BST)

Thanks to efforts by local survivors and the Malton Rangers Crooketon is largely restored. Most resource buildings are in survivor hands and very few ruins remain in the suburb, zed numbers are also relatively low. Not such a bad place at the moment.--Lord Wulfgar 06:51, 4 September 2008 (BST)

The suburb was safe and quiet during this month. Probably too quiet, because no one had ever reported anything.

May

May 20th

It appears that most zed forces have moved on. The lone surviving stragglers and those that came into the suburb to help rebuild have been able to repair most of the ransacked buildings and regain operational control over most resource buildings. There are still a few zeds roaming around but things are quiet...for now.

April 11th

A very preliminary scout revealed a genuine survivor presence in the north and central regions. A number of TRPs have been claimed, and most buildings are barricaded. However, most of the buildings scouted were VSB or lower. Danger level adjusted to Dangerous for the moment: this suburb is not a Ghost Town, but neither is it Safe, as some recent reports have suggested. Further investigation is encouraged! --WanYao 13:40, 11 April 2008 (BST)

I'd say there are more than 40 zombies here. My zombie alt just cracked open a school, infected and ate the half-dead survivor inside, and ruined the place. Most of the buildings are ruined, and the ones that are not have at most 3 survivors inside based on previous break-ins. There's more life here than there is in the south, but the living are still outnumbered. --TerminalFailure 13:23, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

This suburb is emptier than grigg heights, no more than 40 zombies in total, thats for sure. The man 19:01, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

Februrary 26th

Common, this suburb is directly south of a horde of 1000 zombies and it lacks any NTs. I'm upgrading this to VeryDanger. The man 10:01, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Thats a bad reason to upgrade the danger level, upgrade when it is on that level, not when you expect it migth become becuase of zombies in the nearby. Then greater ridleybank area should be all red... -- Wisuguya 22:52 26 february 2008 (UTC)

February 23rd

Almost all buildings are in ruin a few are Very Heavily and Heavily barricaded there is not much hope here... all police buildings are in ruins around 100 zombies scattered and in groups around the street also alot of them are in buildings i barricaded some buildings that survivors can get in 6/10 are already taken down Also i recruit people for the Crooketon Combat Squad we need to rebuild Crooketon and get the zombies away! - Ralazo 09:50, 23 February 2008

An up-to-date External Military report seems to contradict the above post. It reads: "... Crooketon is still active, maybe fifty on the streets ... mostly just small groups ... a lot of buildings with lights on ... infrastructure looks intact ..." Not quiet, but not "hopeless" for survuvors by any means. Anyone else wanna pipe in with some information? --WanYao 11:27, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

February 11th

The police station next door has been taken down too. I have no AP at all, only enough to get away to Nixbank. I counted 5 zombies inside. - Ken Hodgkins 10:02, 11 February 2008

February 11th

I have explored the area and I have counted at least 30 but probably 40 roam the area. There are some ruined buildings, 2 which I have repaired and barricaded. Most buildings have no lights. This is very close to becoming dangerous. I will leave it at moderate for now. --ChiaPet 23:38, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

February 10th

The Methodious General hospital barricade has been taken down, and they are currently 5 zombies in the building - Ken Hodgkins 23:45 (CMT)

January 2nd

Suburb almost entirely secure with a healthy balance of VSB and EHB buildings throughout. Survivor presence is low but slowly increasing. Few Zombies still seen in the streets in no greater groups then 3 although there have been no break ins for several days. The only visible survivor group is the Malton Defense Corporation. Consider downgrading to Safe or Ghost town in near future. User: Template:Valantine 19:29 (GMT)

December

December 30th

Almost no survivor presence seen, occasional zeds. no large crowds.

December 18th

Slowly the West of the suburb is being retaken almost single handedly by the Malton Defense Corporation. Antheros General Hospital is powered and several buildings are at EHB with a couple of VSB points for lower levellers. The zombie presence is quite low although they still remain a considerable threat and are regularly breaching safehouses. --User:Valantine 17:12 (GMT)

External Military: "... Crooketon is still active, maybe fifty on the streets ... mostly just small groups ... no lights on down there ... most of the buildings are ruined ..." --LH779 02:31, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

December 11th

Scouted around Crooktown with my zombie alt and found that almost every building, including all resource points, have been ruined and those buildings that are not ruined have been found to be empty. The only places I could find that were barricaded were three buildings in the last row in the south of the suburb. Unless I am missing something this suburb should have it's danger level upgraded to very dangerous as most buildings have been left wide open.--Srg Shawn 05:04, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

November

November 15th

Mores Lane Police Department has fallen and is wrecked, and neighbouring Methodius General Hospital has been broken into by a horde and is about to collapse as well. Interestingly, many of the zeds I saw there before I left were level one, so you can draw your own conclusions from this.

00:24, 15 November 2007 (GMT)

Due to this; the suburb's Danger Level has been updated from 'Moderate' to 'Dangerous'. Stoj 06:27, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

November 14th

Mores Lane Police Department has been attacked again and again. There are significant survivor casualties. Barricades don't stay up for long. There are about 12 zombies outside the station as of this moment. Madmonkey24Talk CPM User ProfileMadmonkeyavatar-1.jpg 00:31, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

November 13th

Zombies continue to break into Mores Lane Police Department, and the barricades are not holding up for long after they are built. Number of zombies inside the Police Department fluctuates as more are either killed or break in. Assistance in clearing the police station is needed. Madmonkey24Talk CPM User ProfileMadmonkeyavatar-1.jpg 00:41, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

November 12th

Zombie presence felt, not overwhelming however. Zombies have broken into Mores Lane Police Department, but the barricades were set up behind them and they are being dealt with. Have not seen rest of suburb, please complete report if you have extra information. Madmonkey24Talk CPM User ProfileMadmonkeyavatar-1.jpg 22:03, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

November 10th

Buildings are barricaded, though survivors don't seem to have increased as much as the amount of barricaded buildings. Feral zombies roam around as usual, breaking into buildings every now and then. It's not completely safe, but the suburb is far from being reasonably dangerous. Stoj 02:27, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

November 2nd

The suburb is fairly safe, especially in the more populated regions. Small groups of feral zombies have been spotted at the hospitals towards the north (Antheros, Margaret), and the adjacent ruined buildings show that their intentions aren't friendly. There are quite a few barricaded, yet empty buildings. - Stoj 04:50, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

October 11th

After a relatively long period of quiet, small groups of feral zeds are making their presence known by breaking in to some of the resource buildings in the suburb. Due to these break-ins and wreckings the suburb level is back to Moderate. That having been said, they present little more than a nuisance for the moment, and their current levels are managable for now. --Vladimir Kosenko 22:53, 11th October 2007 (BST)

September

September 16th

Survivors have regained most of the suburb but there are still a fair number of ferals out on the streets. For zombies who wish to be revived be advised that the Antell Building is not a revive point and they risk being mistaken for hostile zeds and shot. Instead proceed to the recognised RP at Jefferson Square and wait for the next available Necro-tech employee. --Rober e killer 11:43, 16 September 2007 (BST)

September 13th

Survivour groups have increased alot, and zombies seemed to have left... Except for the odd ferals that occupy the few ruined buildings and streets. Suburb status should be changed from 'orange' to 'yellow'.

September 9th

Theres not a lot of zombies... But the same can be said for survivors. Apart from the odd group or two, most buildings remain ruined, and unoccupied (even by zombies). This place is a ghost town.

September 1st

Most of the suburb remains ruined, though the zombie hordes have diminished in quite a few places.

August

August 28th

St. Matheos's and Margaret General Hospitals were both attacked and ruined today by advance squads of Extinction zombie troops on their way down from their recent mauling of Grigg Heights and its Merson NT. It is not known as yet whether this latest incursion by Extinction is the precursor to a long term presence in the suburb but residents are advised to batten down the hatches as a large number of feral zombies who have been following the organized horde's path of destruction since the aftermath of LUE's Caiger Mall rampage could follow shortly. --Zeug 16:21, 28 August 2007 (BST)

August 26th

The general synopsis is that although there are still a high number of zombies in the suburb, almost all of them are feral, and the situation seems a lot more stable than it has been in recent days.--Vladimir Kosenko 15:25, 17 July 2007 (BST)

August 19th

Passed through Crooketon today and saw a large number of resource buildings sacked. Jefferson Square had a queue of nine zombies. While there seem to be no large mobs (think the largest was of nine outside a hospital), the buildings in central Crooketon are pretty well trashed. Didn't check the inside of the buildings, but it's a fair bet there are zombies inside. As for the cemetary RP...given that the church and closest building (Dewberry Building) are both trashed, it might be inactive. This 'burb is no longer yellow. -- NeenerNeener 19 August 2007

August 7th

Drama Club staged a special performance of "Army of Darkness" for zombies at Coffin Park as part of their Border Tour of Malton. The group is traveling clockwise around the border suburbs of Malton with one show in each suburb. Today they performed for the 2 zombies and one very gutsy survivor here as part of this tour. See their group page for performing groups and schedules.

July

July 17th

The suburb is fairly safe, though there are the odd pairs (or small groups) of zombies wandering around. There are very few buildings at risk (Cherington Drive Fire Station, The Pasker Building and the Wenslydale Arms are a few exceptions). Other than that, most buildings are either VSB or higher, and the strategic Methodius General Hospital and it's surrounding buildings are free from turmoil or any sort of panic.

Danger level should be changed from 'Dangerous' to 'Moderate'. -- Stoja 06:22, 17 July 2007 (BST)

June

June 20th

The Methodius General Hosptial has been heavily barricaded. Multiple survivors and zombies are positioned outside.

June 13th

Increased zombie presence has been seen throughout the suburb. Danger level has been updated to reflect this.

June 4th

Not such a bad place, really. Barricades tend to stay up reasonably well even with survivors in short supply. C'mon down and visit.

May

May 8th

Crooketon is a ghost town. A few scattered survivors maintain safehouses, and lone zombies mill about the streets.

February

Goodness how the time flies. Dears, please do come for a cup of tea and some barricading at St Mattheos. a votre service, --LaDoc 19:38, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

October

October 26th

Methodeus Hospital now has 3 zeds in and 2 out. Noob humans holed up nearby awaiting APs.

September

September 24th

This area of Malton is very dangerous at this time. Almost every single safe house in the area has had its barricades completely or almost completely torn down, and for some reason, the ones that are barricaded are houseing zombies. It is possible that PKers might have swept the area and killed everyone, traveling by means of free running. (feel free to edit this to make it sound better, I'm not exactly a journalist)

July

July 12th

The coordinated attacks by the Dead on Arrival, Lebende Tote and the Crimson Crusaders have cleared the suburb of survivors. The (not quite so) Invisibles, fighting valiantly for almost 2 weeks, were forced to evacuate the suburb after the unrelenting mass of undead eventually washed over them.--Doc smith 13:10, 12 July 2006 (BST)

July 4th

The (not quite so) Invisibles are hunkering down and going for the long haul, with the fall of the Merson Building revives are now being saved for Invisibles members only for the time being. Those awaiting revives are regretfully informed of this and advised to head for safer climes to get revived. Currently The (not quite so) Invisible Academy remains mostly in our hands, and our Secondary and Tertiary HQ's are undiscovered.

After an unforunate incident of Combat Reviving by a new(ish) member, all Invisibles are reminded of our No Combat Reviving policy.

Sorry DOA/Totes don't expect to see too many of us, except when you crack our safehouses.

We plan on waiting you out, not removing you by force (with the exception of certain sentimental buildings here and there.

Nicely done on killing off our abortive Griggs strike before it really started btw! --Jakeweber 14:14, 4 July 2006 (BST)

July 1st

Dead On Arrival Kicks off its campaign in the south by blitzing through a series of poorly defended safehouses. Sadly, the Invisibles live up to thier name and the rank and file of DDAR find only a few confused breathers to munch upon. -- Spritefire 11:07, 1 July 2006 (BST)

  • In a daring midnight raid, members of The (not quite so) Invisibles, ambushed several visiting tourist Lebende Tote. When asked for a sitrep, Carl Panzram stated the following "Right now we're all dead. The Invisibles hit us with our pants down." At this time, reports of Totes stumbling about Crooketon sans trousers have not been confirmed. --Doc smith 14:22, 1 July 2006 (BST)

June

June 30th

In a daring morning raid, 3 members of the Lebende Tote GMT/Alpha strike team found 3 members of The (not quite so) Invisibles resting in a cracked safehouse. A blaze of gunfire and gnashing of teeth left 2 Totes pumped and dumped, while 1 Invisible sacrificed himself in order for his comrades to escape. The Totes realized that they were not chewing on n00bs in Griggs anymore. Good show! Cheers! --Doc smith 13:23, 29 June 2006 (BST).

In a daring afternoon raid, 5 Members of the Lebende Tote EST/Alpha strike team found 2 members of The (not quite so) Invisibles resting in a cracked safehouse. A hot blaze of Doc's cursing followed. "Encouraged" by Doc's words, the Totes devoured both Invisibles. The Totes suffered several broken nails. --Doc smith 01:40, 30 June 2006 (BST)
In a daring evening raid, 2 members of the Lebende Tote EST/Bravo srike team found a member of The (not quite so) Invisibles resting in a cracked safehouse. The Invisible was quickly put out of his misery. Doc lurched over and watched. 2 EST/Bravo Totes missed the fun. One Tote was looking for a vest, the other Tote was graarrhing with a North Gunner. --Doc smith 06:18, 30 June 2006 (BST)

April

April 15th

The Bees Building in the southeast sector is currently being occupied by four zombies. The factory to the east of St. Dorotheus's (That is how it is spelled in-game, even know it is incorrect punctuation) church has only one zomb in currently and another factory directly two spaces to the first's south has three zombies.

February

February 24th

The St. Matheos and Margaret General Hospitals have groups of cca 5 zombies in front of them and only doors closed.

January

January 27th

The large hordes have moved on to suburbs further East and North. However, conditions remain quite dangerous as zombie numbers have climbed dramatically after the attacks and resource buildings and many surrounding buildings are occupied by at least one guard zombie. Experiments removing zombies and barricading the buildings has resulted in rapid, organized strikes by zombies from surrounding buildings that quickly remove the barricades and reestablish the zombie guard. It's recommended that you DO NOT sleep in resource buildings and set up safehouses at least a couple blocks away to avoid their attention. --Impetus 07:39, 13 Jan 2006 (GMT)

January 3rd

Methodius General Hospital (6,68) seems safe, no undead for a few blocks and none inside.

We warn fellow travelers to stock up on supplies and AP before venturing into the hot zone. We also suggest that travelers scout for multiple safe houses before bedding down. We strongly urge that travelers have the Free Running skill. If travelers have the construction skill, strengthen the current safehouse barricades to extremely heavily barricaded.
There are large coordinated zombie hordes in Crooketon. Members of MotA (confirmed sightings) and the Undying Scourge have parked 40 zombies inside Mores Lane Police Dept. 5, 68. Antheros General Hospital, Margaret General Hospital, Furneaux Square Fire Station and the Theobald Building (Mobile Phone Mast) have fallen to the zombie menace (confirmed).
The Undying Scourge has recently moved into the suburbs of Crooketon and Mornington causing much panic and devastation to primary structures in the area. --Impetus 00:24, 29 Dec 2005 (GMT)

January 2nd

The conditions at St. Matheos's Hospital (7,61) - Methodius General Hospital (6,68) - Cherington Drive Fire Station (0,68) are unknown and considered unsafe until scouted.
