Looks back to normal, almost. At least 30ish survivors inside and there are 4 survivors in the NE corner, none in the other corners i beleive. No lights, light cades all the way around. --IBlank12 02:37, 26 July 2011 (BST)

May 25, 2011

The place was ruined when I checked. There were two zeds in both northern corners, and the southern corners were empty. The nearby cemetery has 20+ zeds waiting for a revive, including myself (I died by infection looking for a hospital). Treviabot92 04:47, 26 May 2011 (BST)

April 8, 2011

Mall is unpowered due to recent zombie attack, in which they've left various survivors infected, destroyed any present generators, radios and ruined the Sixtus General Hospital nearby in order to cut off medical supplies. Barricades in the mall are back up, however, no corner is ruined. Only free running will get you in here. Sixtus General Hospital has four zombies outside, two inside, could be easily cleared out if we had more men.

March 7, 2011

Mall is unpowered but full of survivors. Frequent PKing has been witnessed. Survivors suggest not sleeping in the houses around the malls. Zombies advise eating BRA!NS of sleeping survivors.

March 3, 2011

Mall is empty of survivors. A couple of zombies inside and several small groups in the surrounding neighborhood.

December 22, 2010

Around 100 survivors inside. Join us for caroling every night!!!

March 20, 2010

Mall has at least 5 survivors in every single corner. So far, so good. --Jesant13 17:35, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

February 15, 2010

Mall is ruined, with thin layer of dust upon the debris. It is inhabited by ≈30 zombies. VHB, HB and two corners wide open. - Motown Defector

November 2, 2009

Taking advantage of the carnage generated by the Samhain Slaughter, zombie forces spearheaded by The Gray have ruined the Northwestern and Southeastern corners of the mall. The other corners fell soon after, leaving the mall in zombie hands. ZARHRAHZ! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ben the devourer (talkcontribs) 15:50, 2 November 2009 (UTC).

November 1, 2009

After a large buildup of PKers in the area lasting approximately one week, it appears that the third annual Samhain Slaughter has struck the mall. - Subotei's Crotch 06:54, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

October 29, 2009

Mall is heavily occupied and growing. All occupants seem to be hunkering down for a siege as the hoarde moves east. Personally I have been on a fighting retreat since October 14 when Caiger fell. I ended up at the battle for both Ackland and Stickling malls, now I'm here. Rest assured the hoarde wont be far behind, hopefully here we'll be much more prepared for them.--Brad Pirie 23:33, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

September 04, 09

Survivors inside the mall was unable to clear out the zombie beachhead fast enough. In the end, more zombies poured in and ruined the entire mall. -- Kittithaj 21:17, 4 September 2009 (BST)

September 03, 09

There was a breach at the Northwest corner of the mall by 3 zombie. However, slow survivors response caused more zombies to come in, establishing a beachhead Currently there are about fifteen zombies inside. The whole mall is powerless. -- Kittithaj 21:06, 3 September 2009 (BST)

September 01, 09

Rumours of the Militant Order of Barhah coming to town are increasing. So far the Mall is powered and EHB, some GKer activity inside, but a mob of Zeds is slowly advancing from the south. The Dewes Building NT is under siege, with more than 30 Zeds outside, and Mall denizens are trying to hold it up. All survivors in the area are encouraged to take cover inside the Mall, and prepare themselves for the action. -- LokkenJP 10:47, 1 September 2009 (CEST)

August 16, 09

The Dead Bunnies left. Local survivors quickly repaired the mall. It is still under construction, and power is still out in some parts. Despite this minor inconvenience, all shoppers are welcomed. -- Kittithaj 06:44, 16 August 2009 (BST)

UPDATE: The whole mall is powered now, although a certain GKer is causing some trouble smashing generators up. -- Kittithaj 06:26, 17 August 2009 (BST)

July 15, 09

Less than a week since its last reconstruction, the mall was completely destroyed once again. -- Kittithaj 18:12, 16 July 2009 (BST)

July 10, 09

After the Dead Bunnies zeds attack last week, the mall is recovered and in human hands, set to EHB in all corners. Heytown entry point: enter The Syms Museum to Club Hesse entry point. (Malgahara 11:54, 10 July 2009 (BST))

April 22, 09

3 parts of the mall are fixed, but there are still 15 or 10 zeds still inside the one ruined part of the mall.--Truezombieboy 03:37, 23 April 2009 (BST)

January 27th, 09

Currentlly in zombie hands but once mall tour 09 moves on it will be easier to retake.--Jerrel Yokotory 16:56, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

January 23rd, 09

Currently, the NW and NE sectors are in Zombie hands, while the SE corner is being contested for, and the SW unmolested. As having two characters in the situation (one as a human in the SW corner and the other in the SE, [zombie] duking it out with the humans), I would say in my opinion, Dowdney Mall is lost. I'm sorry, but the latest numbers were: 64 in NW corner, 56 in NE corner, 13 in SE and SW 0. Pull out. By the Asian Correspondent, John Petrov.

December 24th, 08

Just went into the mall and to my knowledge there are only two zombies inside. The mall is pretty safe. However, with the MOB growing in strength and increasing activity, I would not assume this to last for long. Nemesis645 08:41, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Update. Only 1 zombie is in the mall now. Rebarricading and repopulation would be good to do now. Nemesis645 13:27, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
Final update for today. Mall is now completely clear of undead. Nemesis645 18:57, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

December 14, 08

Very few zombies are to be found inside or out. It is fairly safe. --MTRemick 00:18, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

November 20, 08

The mighty power of the Militant Order of Barhah has squashed one quadrant of the Mall as the rest of Santlerville turns into ruins --TouchingVirus 17:48, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

all four corners are ransacked, over 200 zombies inside, the mall is gone. we have won.--Destor 04:59, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

November 14, 08

The MOB have officially announced that Santlerville is their next target...But at the moment, there are few zombie breakins. --Angusburger 08:08, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

November 2nd, 08

We have 120 survivors in the NE corner, 35 in the NW corner, 73 in the SW corner, and 45 in the SE corner (counting me) --Zeebie 04:17, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

October 26th, 08

Seems somebody took out the Generator in the NW section of the mall, got some random PKing in the SE section. Other than that, we're all fine down here. Anikal 05:54, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

October 23rd, 08

All four corners at EHB and NW, NE, SW corners are lit. The SE corner's generator is out of fuel, and Club Hesse is in darkness. One or two zombies here and there, couple of dead bodies. Mall is still safe, though. Anikal 03:58, 24 October 2008 (BST)

September 3rd, 08

Mall is still at EHB and all corners are lit. Very few, if any zeds around - I only saw one, in Heytown, so the mall seems to be 100% safe for now. Anarchy-X

July 31, 2008

Mall is still lit and barricaded, zombies closing in. Firnagzen

April 26, 2008

Mall is lit and barricaded. Enjoy.--Marcel Swann

March 30, 2008

the mall is gone, survivors are fleeing the suburb left and right. zombies now have complete control of the suburb.- puma6374

March 30, 2008

Over 300 Zombies inside the mall. Survivor attempts to repel the zombies have failed.--The Dead 02:15, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

March 29, 2008

South-east corner has been breached with 22 zambahz inside. All four corners un-powered.--Major Dick 15:12, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

The situation is dire. The SE corner is ransacked with 146 zombies inside. The SW corner has 136 inside, though is still occupied by some survivors. All Generators (and thus radios) are down. Survivors should evacuate to the suburbs directly north and west of Santlerville. Smoked 22:55, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

March 28, 2008

The situation is worse. Antony and Dewes are gone and the SE corner is busted open and there are about 18-20 zombies inside now. - Jonas Blood / warp0

March 28, 2008

The situation is bad at: 01:42 the antony building is as good as gone cades are down and peaople so desprateas to call for trenchcots for help, I did my best to find out what i could but with my action points dwindling i retreted to downdy although unverified as many as 200+ zeds could be outside each coner and i can only pray for help.---B1139

March 27, 2008

After a brief zombie occupation, the Dewes NT building has been retaken, but a horde of 221 zombies (not including bodies) is outside it now. 61 zombies outside the southeast corner, with a horde of around 20 attacking the Anthony Building. Looks like this horde is targeting the supply lines first.

mall standing strong NE corner 1 zed SE corner 60 zeds surrounding buildings mostly safe we would like some backup

March 26, 2008

Relative calm in the mall, all corners lit and EHB, except for a short disruption by a survivor ran around screaming "The Dewes Building is falling, they need backup NOW, plz broadcast". It appears zombies were successful in breaching the barricades of the nearest NT building, its still unclear if the building will fall but the horde of 90 suggest it will!--Rioting pacifist 13:30, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

March 25, 2008

The Mall and the Adjacent NT Building (Dewes Building) are still occupied and barricaded to an EHB level. However, A horde of 50 zombies is attacking Dewes and dozens more are attacking the entry point (The Anthony Building) of the mall to the Northeast as well as Sixtus hospital to the Southwest. Nearly every block around the mall has 1-3 zombies, and there are reports of half a dozen hordes of 20-50 zombies in the surrounding Area. The mall is on the verge of an all out battle.Smoked 20:47, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

February 2nd, 2008

The Dowdney Mall inhabitants can expect a visit from the Second Big Bash soon... It will be a good idea to stock up on ammunition while you can before those zombies start the next Mall Siege....--Chaplain Drakon Macar 03:53, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Jaunuary 30th, 2008

Mall is safe low activity tho pkrs running around time from time. Pazzini


December 10th, 2007

Zombie Activity very low. Known GKers/Greifers Madlatvian and Richard Leaper have been in area for a several days, greifing and gking. Known PKers/Greifers Avenger and Bibelo have been witnessed PKing and greifing. --RayCross 01:09, 11 December 2007 (UTC)


November 24th, 2007

NW/SE sections of the Mall unlit - generators out of fuel. Around 240 survivors inside, all sections EHB as usual. --Lh778 05:38, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

November 16th, 2007

50% of the Mall lit; unlit squares most likely due to GKers. All sections EHB and few zombies outside.

For the moment. --Lh778 14:34, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

November 11th, 2007

The MoB's push yesterday was repelled. Mall is currently lit and cades are high. Expect a harder MoB attack soon. Survivors are advised to hug as many zombies as possible before pushing the zombies back outside. The MoB needs love too.--Sexy Rexy Grossman 00:43, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

November 9th, 2007

It seems the MOB have been knocking on the mall's door as of late. --evilbob 14:47, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

The Militant Order of Barhah has announced their intentions to attack Dowdney Mall. --Sexy Rexy Grossman 23:17, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

August 28th, 2007

Quick scout of the area finds a few Mrh? Cows in the area's revive points. The mall itself has about 400 survivors, mostly in the Eastern half. All four corners EHB+Lit. Most of the buildings have no zeds outside, and are EHB+Lit. The entry points were all VSB when I went by. Looks good. It's been quiet. Almost too quiet...      Ekashp wuz here (aht harman bra!nz!)        01:05, 29 August 2007 (BST)

August 20th, 2007

Although the area is relatively safe, more and more zeds have been popping up nearby in groups of about 5. Staples11 10:00, 20 August 2007 (BST)

August 13th, 2007

Dowdney Mall's pretty clear.. no zeds within a couple of blocks, if you're looking for a fight you should probably look to northern Santlerville there's still a residual feral problem... unless you're a bounty hunter. We got a few griefers hanging around, Madlatavian being the only one I've seen in action--Alex the Red 12:35, 13 August 2007 (PT)

August 7th, 2007

Earlier today, all four corners of the mall once again contained zombies and were ransacked, although the numbers were small in 3 of the corners (only 1 zombie in the NE corner when I left), so it looks like we've lost some ground.--Miss Hap 21:35, 7 August 2007 (BST)

August 2nd, 2007

Dowdney Mall remains under LUE control, as it has been for two days.--Karekmaps?! 10:38, 2 August 2007 (BST)

Additional Information - Two corners of the mall are now barricaded, a third may soon be aswell. Still over 70 zombies inside but a small coordinated force could possibly take back even that corner, the real question is are there enough survivors in the area, do they care, and are they coordinated enough to be able to do anything if the first two answers are yes.--Karekmaps?! 18:23, 2 August 2007 (BST)

July 30th, 2007

Another concentrated strike from LUE has ransacked the NW quadrant, and has seen a continued zombie attack on the remaining survivors. Close to 200 zombies inside, human numbers unknown but likely similar. Each side holds two quadrants of the mall. Folks both alive and dead, if you're in the area and looking for a fight, this is the place to be.--Panthera 01:30, 31 July 2007 (BST)

Additional Information-Zombie numbers are far closer to 160 than 200. But it is still insanely impressive. After 24 hours the survivor:zombie ratio is now near 8:10(that is to say there are still over 100 survivors) in zombies favor and only 2 corners are ransacked, although the third(SW quad) is slowly on it's way the revive queue look small at all three local revive points and both of the Necrotechs are still functioning, as is most of the rest of the suburb.--Karekmaps?! 01:40, 31 July 2007 (BST)
SW corner has been ransacked. Also while there is only 160 zombies in the mall, theres still about 50~80 zombies laying on the floor outside the mall waiting to stand up. --TheNeoianOne 01:47, 31 July 2007 (BST)
Some of those could be survivors who haven't logged in to find themselves dead from Sunday's attack. There may be other smaller zombie groups who have yet to attack as well. --Sexy Rexy Grossman 02:49, 31 July 2007 (BST)

With less than 50 survivors remaining in the NE quadrant and over 200 zombies inside it seems unlikely the mall will last very much longer.--Shaggy123

July 29th, 2007

The Reanimations' leader destroys all the generators of Dowdney Mall and the Dewes Building. This was in part for paaaaablo's killing of myself. He claims to be a "Dewes Meatshield" so killing him seemed counterproductive. --Secruss 19:16, 29 July 2007 (BST)

Round, and Round, and Round LUE goes, where we stop...Oh hey Dowdney! Took us 35 minutes, but the SE quad has been ransacked. --I3lckdeth 00:41, 30 July 2007 (BST)

Only 30 minutes according to my watch.. but I don't think my watch has been working since I've been dead.----TheNeoianOne 00:46, 30 July 2007 (BST)
That was so much fun! You LUEsers know how to show a Quarterback a good time. Twice! :) --Sexy Rexy Grossman 01:04, 30 July 2007 (BST)

20th July 2007

In July of 2007, the Dribbling Beavers of Santlerville decided to move the principal revive point to St. Emelia's Church. --Private Damage 14:46, 20 July 2007 (BST)

17th July 2007

Since the fall of Giddings many survivors have been flocking to Dowdney Mall to compose themselves. Along with regular survivors, some of the Giddings PKing riff-raff have come to Dowdney as well. Jason the Axe Man has already been spotted and Taken out in the mall, and many more are to follow...

Giddings has sent us a list of their DNR (Do Not Revive) PKers They are: Jason The Axe Man, Lud Lum, MisterHat, Shammie, madscience, Mr Socio, Ulysses Black

If you see these individuals KOS (Kill on Sight)!

16th July 2007

Barhah Betty, the voice of the LUE Horde, announced intentions to visit Dowdney Mall this evening, in order to secure copies of the newest Harry Potter book. Somebody tried to spoil the ending to the LUEsers (OMG SNAPE KILLS VOLDEMORT) but it did not deter them. With not enough copies of the book for zombie and survivor, the Dowdney Mall residents have organized a specialized defense plan to counter LUE's en masse attack style. --Sexy Rexy Grossman 15:51, 16 July 2007 (BST)

2nd July 2007

The Mall is really quite safe, with the horde gone the only thing the shoppers need to worry about now is whether they can still search and find the newly released iPhone at the Apple Store (since there are so many people here), that and the occasional PK'ers that come in, hoping to hide amongst the vast numbers of survivors. Please keep an eye out for PK'ers.--Sunil 09:54, 2 July 2007 (BST)

26th May 07

The RRF has sent an official concession of defeat:

" Quote: After having been on Excursion for five months, determined to find a tanning bed, the zombies of Ridleybank stared up at the May sunlight and down at their rotting flesh and realized that they had already gotten a tan.

For the past seven weeks the RRF has viciously fought in Santlerville and the surrounding area to take down a powerful and well organized survivor resistance. Now has come the time to admit defeat.

I was going to prepare a nice, long speech congratulating the survivors, but I realized that nothing I could say would surpass the words of Papa Petro after the First Siege of Caiger Mall.

Quote: Let none take away from what you have done here, and let none steal the credit for the valor of your defense. You have done what was thought to be impossible, for you have turned away the horde.

In the name of the [Santlerville] Survivors and all humankind: BARHAH!

Let me also add that we very sorely underestimated you.

To the RRF and other zombies. There is no shame in defeat. We put up one hell of a fight, but in the end we were outnumbered, outgunned and out-organized by numerous cunning survivor groups including the Dribbling Beavers, the Cannonball Crew and Upper Left Corner. At times it looked like things were going to go our way; the few days when Dewes kept going back and forth between zombies and survivors, the injection of valued allies like the Feral Undead, Eastonwood Ferals, Killer Zombie Tomatoes, The Minions of the Apocalypse, Lebende Tote, /b/ and others. However, each time we made an advance the survivors adjusted and turned us back.

I want our defeat not to be a bitter one. The vast majority of the harmanz were honorable foes. Accounts of zergers were minuscule, the infamous spy was of little consequence, there was no evidence of bots, and the malice of the trenchcoats was more than counteracted by the valor of harmanz who would be our friends if it weren’t for their beating hearts and breathing lungs. It is in that spirit that I call on the zombies of Ridleybank to mass upon Club Birch [77, 22] this Sunday, tear open the barricades and DANCE. Gesture to the sky, gesture to fellow zombies, gesture to honorable harmanz, rattle compliments and the words to your favorite songs or limericks.

The work of Barhah! never ceases, though. Come next week, the horde will move forward, hungry for victory. Be sure to check out the Ridleybank Resistance Front forum for future plans and be ready to show survivors all over Malton the true meaning of Barhah! "

But the battle is still on, just the main group has now conceded. Nalikill 15:55, 26 May 2007 (BST)

23rd May 07

The Mall and surrounding buildings are virtually devoid of zombies since they are at present, launching a massive attack on The Hall Building NT Facility. The Mall is safe until that building falls and they turn their attention South.--Sunil 23:28, 23 May 2007 (BST)

19th May 07

51 zombies standing outside SW corner of Dowdney at this time. 4 standing outside NE corner. --Psiuk

18th May 07

36 zombies standing outside SW corner of Dowdney at this time. Dewes has 80 dead bodies outside but no standing zeds. --Sexy Rexy Grossman 15:53, 18 May 2007 (BST)

17th May 07

Reports indicate that the zed attack in the SW corner has been repelled. A nice showing by both sides of the conflict. --Sexy Rexy Grossman 01:35, 18 May 2007 (BST)

As many as 65 brain hungry zeds broke through the barricades of the SW corner devouring many of the cowering residents. Perhaps not enough to end the siege, but a wake up call for those inside regardless. --DonTickles 22:43, 17 May 2007 (BST)

Mall has been breached, 50 zombies inside south west corner.20 zeds in SW corner, cades up. Help! - Rib15

Small zombie groups breech the mall on occasion, causing little damage. PKer and GKers move through and do their thing. Most of the occupants still focus on defending the local NecroTech buildings: The Dewes Building and the Hall Building. --Sexy Rexy Grossman 19:32, 17 May 2007 (BST)

South East Corner breached. But there are only about 30z's left inside.

Looks like those promised RRF reinforcements are here at last. Further, the Hall building's entry point is overrun. --Incroym 19:54, 17 May 2007 (EST)

11th May 07

Fewer and fewer zombies remain standing outside the Dewes Building. With more confirmed zombie groups entering the area, most veteran mall defenders know this is a lull in the action to fool humans into thinking the siege is over. With over 250 dead bodies only one block away from the west side of the mall, Dowdney is still in danger. --Sexy Rexy Grossman 15:32, 11 May 2007 (BST)

Bodies are pilling up around the mall and RDF has made it clear that they are waiting for z reinforcements. The mall will come under major attack within the next few days.

bardockfloyd left the mall to make his way to a fort and was killed so if u plan on leaveing then get your skills higher and he max ap -bardockfloyd

10th May 07

24 zombies outside Dewes. 1 out side the mall. The siege has ended.--Nimrod1 talk-DDF- 17:11, 10 May 2007 (BST)

That is incorrect -- the siege is definitely not over. There are 255 dead bodies laying outside Dewes; most of whom will be ready to jump up at a moments notice to attack the cades. More zombie groups are coming in from the northwest and the south through Heytown. Mall Defenders are encouraged to load their guns and grab FAKs for the upcoming battle, which may prove to be the final bout of the siege. --Sexy Rexy Grossman 20:01, 10 May 2007 (BST)

Late in the night: 20 or less standing at Dewes; 240 laying down outside. Mall's holding, and it and surroundings are very populated. Nalikill 23:43, 10 May 2007 (BST)

9th May 07

142 survivors inside the mall itself. Zombies outside the Dewes building starting to not stand up in as great numbers or as quickly. Siege still going on. Nalikill 17:56, 9 May 2007 (BST)

Up above is wrong there is actually over 600 Survivors in the mall and 100 in Dewes, Zombies = on average 70 to 100 outside Dewes. It's almost like there are no zombies. -Fables Desire Faith-4:38 EST

Okay. Sorry. I must have misinterpreted what I saw. Thanks for correcting me; I just wanted to give a current report as best as I knew. I hate seeing "unknown" on malls. Nalikill 00:20, 10 May 2007 (BST)

29th April 07

Survivors this afternoon were startled by the sound of cavalry bugles. The Loose Cannons and the Cannonball Crew have arrived to aid in the defense of the mall.--Koppie 21:56, 29 April 2007 (BST)

The number of zombies outside has gone from 130 to 80 in the space of about 8 hours. Wow.

28th April 07

The horde of the undead continues to batter away at the barricades, survivors continue to stack them back up and fire away at the undead as they come through in small groups. Using Zambah commando tactics the living dead breached the SW corner of the mall to discover 116 hambargarz inside, will the survivors be able to defend on all fronts? Will the zombies continue these probing attacks? The rotting deathless veterans of the mall tour are unbending in their desire for brains and Ranzag. I'm sure the terrified breathers inside would like to keep breathing as well. Who will prevail? --Electrasol 22:46, 28 April 2007 (BST)

The mall is currently not the setting of a soap opera. This is a serious battle!!! The living are dying and the undead are beginning to breath again!

27th April 07

Ferocious fighting over the Dewes building continues. Twenty some odd survivors huddle inside, facing down a handful of Zombies at a time, with a mass of almost two hundred bodies rotting outside the building and about a hundred standing zombies. The battle nears a tipping point, once the Dewes building falls the mall is doomed and the survivors will be man ham. --Electrasol 05:16, 28 April 2007 (BST)

The barricades briefly dropped at Dewes, allowing 14 zombies to gain access before the breach was sealed. The fighting is extremely intense, with survivors being attacked mere seconds after leaving buildings. The horde of zombies has swelled to over 130 strong, although this number fluctuates. The area is not under the control of any group, and lone players/zombies are quickly cut down in the general chaos.--Rightylefty 03:50, 28 April 2007 (BST)

25th April 07

Barricade is down at Sixtus Hector Gladwell 01:24, 27 April 2007 (BST)

There are currently about 100 standing zeds and 140 bodies outside Dewes. It remains EHB and powered at this time.--Dingo 08:34, 26 April 2007 (BST)

Fierce fighting continues to rage in and around Dowdney, packs of the ravenous undead are attacking the Dewes building in waves, despite this human resistance has been extremely intense, this battle will continue until the first survivors start to panic. --Electrasol 00:24, 26 April 2007 (BST)

Dewes NT continues to be hotly contested. Zombie strike forces gain hold of the building, only to have human counterattacks reclaim the building. All corners of Dowdney are being probed for weaknesses; at noon EDT, several zombies entered the NW corner of the mall, perhaps for a sip from the newly-established ULC fountain. Mall Defenders are encouraged to sleep in the corner with the least amount of survivors, or to defend Dewes. More members of the Killer Zombie Tomatoes and the Feral Undead make their way to the battlegrounds. --Sexy Rexy Grossman 21:16, 25 April 2007 (BST)

Six zombies and no 'cades in Dewes right now, still plenty of survivors though. 20:46 EST

24th April 07

The Necrotech has fallen, all survivors are encouraged to counterattack or we will lose the siege. -Officer Conrad

20th April 07

Bad news, the mall tour after party is going to take place at your mall. I'll redirect the people I was reserving at Giddings to you guys, and good luck. -Officer Conrad

19th April 07

Lots of survivors in all corners. However there was a breakin by 7 zeds in the sw corner of the mall. All generators were destroyed.

10th April 07

3 Zeds and no power in the South-West corner. Only had 1AP entering South-East so had to retreat back to Club Hesse before I could check out the 'cade level there. There's massive piles of corpses outside Sixtus and the PD in Heytown so i'm expecting the situation to get worse before it gets better--User:Dan Fransisco 10:40, 10 April 2007 (BST)

Can someone post the mall's radio frequency. --User:Longshot7 12:53, 10 April 2007 (MST)

Same as Santlerville's: 26.06 Mhz. --Sexy Rexy Grossman 01:40, 21 April 2007 (BST)

9th April 07

Some of the zombies seen congregating south of Dowdney Mall appear to be members of the Ridleybank Resistance Front. Residents of Dowdney Mall have organized their defenses to counteract the threat. Due to the siege, Sixtus General Hospital's barricade level should be EHB. --Sexy Rexy Grossman 01:04, 10 April 2007 (BST)

7th April 07

Multiple members of the RRF Gore Corps spotted in and around the mall, graffiti indicating imminent RRF invasion. Two corners unpowered on account of lack of fuel.

26th March 07

A few sporadic breakins have occurred at Sixtus General Hospital. Such breakins are quenched quickly and casualties are low. However, the population there has dwindled as survivors head for safer buildings.

15th March 07

No zombies outside the mall. The NW corner was at VSB but I fixed that.

1st March 07

The mall has stayed in survivor hands for several days. Zombies have refocused their efforts on the NE corner. At the time of this report there were 29 standing zombies, with 19 standing outside the Dewes building. All four corners of the mall were powered and EHB. --Sexy Rexy Grossman 22:00, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

27th February 07

The mall is back in survivor hands with less than 20 survivors inside the mall. The hold on the mall is tedious, but with all 4 corners barricaded and generators running in most sections of the mall survivor numbers are expected to increase.

25th February 07

There are Zombies in all four corners of the mall, the NW and SW corners are devoid of survivors and the survivors in the NE corner are outnumbered. Dowdney has all but fallen at this point.

The Tourists are so giddy by their successful raid, they are performing massive choreographed dance routines. The survivors left are amazed by the graceful tap-dancing of several hundred zeds over a mountain of skulls. --Sexy Rexy Grossman 21:48, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

24th February 07

As part of operation Rotting Thunder the Mall Tour has been able to smash into and ransack the NW corner of Dowdney in seemingly record time. The local survivor population has started fighting back fiercely but as of this writing there are 60 undead monsters inside the NW corner and one can imagine that the hundreds of feral zombies who've been following the mall tour are shambling towards the mall. There are unconfirmed reports of survivor panic and flight from the mall at this time. --Electrasol 01:27, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Mall Tour is there and the NW corner is nearly empty and ransacked. 20 35 zeds inside. --Zawa o' Draugr 21:38, 24 February 2007 (UTC

46 Zeds in NW corner, but over 100 humans still in the other corners. --Sexy Rexy Grossman 23:12, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
Zombie numbers continue to climb, 89 inside the northwestern corner at the time of this update. --Bassander 04:15, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

26th January 07

The Big Bash leaders hung around Dowdney for a few weeks and when the rest of the horde failed to show up, they gave up. However, the scuttlebutt is that the Mall Tour 07 has Dowdney in their sights when they get done with Stickling. - AquilaUng

5th Janurary 07

The mall has beein in human control for 27 days, all corners are still EHB, the area inside and out has low threat to anyone with a building to hide in nearby. --Sapwood2 22:29, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

31th December 06

The mall is fully in human control, with over 300 survivors inside. All corners are at EHB and no zombies are inside or out.--54sr

8th December 06

The Mall is clear of Zeds, and has all 4 corners powered and waiting for the Holiday rush. 79 survivors hold the NE corner where the Zed siege was finally broken. Get in the Mall now!

7th December 06

The last report from the mall was that there were 25 zeds and apparently no survivors. You are not advised to sleep anywhere near it.

16th November 06

The mall has become over run, the doors have been opened and are only secured. There's a horde of 46 zombies and rising in the upper right sector. All human life has been eradicated As far as I have seen. Avoid, unless you are heading in to clean up.

15th November 06

Sizeable human group around 10 zombies in the NW corner, around 90 zombies on the outside on the SE some higher level zombies keep entering and slaughtering humans --Stanley nickarz 06:38, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

7th November 06

Mall is very empty, except for a group of 8 zombies swaying in the SW corner; otherwise, this place is deserted. --Winnan 17:19, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

30th October 06

Well, my time at least. Breaking in, the local zombies find the inhabitants of the Mall to be both nutritious and delicious. The gathering hordes have a foothold in the Mall and are feeding heartily.--J Muller 06:09, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

29th October 06

Dowdney Mall is currently zombie-free, with strong barricades in all but one corner but without survivor support. Most survivors seems to occasionally pop in to clear out zombies and then retreat to safehouses. --Dimmswick 07:05, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

17th October 06

Dowdney Mall has fallen once again.--Shiakou 12:57, 17 October 2006 (BST)

16th October 06

The zombies have focused their attacks on the southwest corner of the mall, breaking in frequently and dragging the survivors outside to their deaths. At this moment, there are no survivors left in that corner of the mall and the zombies are slowly moving into the other corners.

10th October 06

Barricades are going up and the mall is slowly being retaken, but for now it's not advisable to sleep there. There have been multiple serious break ins and the nearby Dewes Necrotech building is still not secure. Anyone who can clear and barricade in the area who are able to help secure the mall and outlying resource buidings would be appreciated.

2nd October 06

The Mall has been overrun completely. Any remaining survivors in the vicinity are advised to evacuate the area immediately. --Ashnazg 15:59, 2 October 2006 (GMT)

1st October 06

The Mall is almost completely in Zombie hands. At last count, there were a total of 90 humans, all in the SE and SW corners. This is down from over 200 on September 30th, and more on the 29th. It is unlikely this mall will last for two more hours. After enduring a sub-siege, most likely from The Shining Ones, an advance element of The Big Bash for approximately a week, mall defence has crumbled, coinciding with the arrival of the rest of the Bash. With constant pressure having been applied to the NW Corner of the mall, along with lack of reinforcement from other corners of the mall, breaches have occured and over 100 Zombies are now inside. Any survivors remaining should immediately seek shelter in a safer suburb.

27th September 06

The Loose Cannons have opened up a new forum so everyone can join forces. The only way we'll win this is if we work together. You don't even need to sign up!
The NW corner has 107 zombies outside of it. ALL other corners have 0 zombies. As far as I know, there have been NO break-ins anywhere but in the NW corner. Do swap corners accordingly.

25th September 06

Sleeping in the Dewes Building is a VERY bad idea. There are break-ins there on the hour, and we cannot afford to lose anymore personnel. Stay in the mall, skip over to clear it out and rebarricade, then get back to the mall. Just keep it clear of zombies.

As for the mall, the NW corner needs assistance. We have a zombie, and a body inside, and we are at lightly barricaded +0. If you don't pick this message up within an hour or two, we've probablly fixed it, but it wouldn't hurt to check. (07:52 EST)

21st September 06

There has been some confusion about the buildings boardering the mall. The Dewes Building is a Necrotech building, and it under constant pressure - keep it EHB. The Anthony building is an entry point, which people are relying on to enter the mall - keep it VSB. There are nice places to rest south of the mall in Heytown that are less dangerous and can EHB.

20th September 06

I just want to say something to all the GKers and PKers that have been raiding the mall. For all your efforts, you fight an enemy that has nothing against you, and would readily accept you back if you were to give up your current nature. We are all human, and we should all be fighting the enemy that actually wants us dead. Even if you've let the zombies know you're on their side, the big bash is huge. At least one zombie is garunteed not to hear it. Anyways, once those barricades come down, the zombies won't care if you're PKer, GKer, or a Zombie Hunter. We're all equally edible.

So think of your fellow surivior, and help us against the zombies. And if you can't do that, at least don't work against us. And if you can't do that, then jump out of a window and fight fairly at least.

Zombies have began forming small groups outside the mall, no more than 10 or so per square.

18th September 06

Something's working at the cades in the NE corner, but as of now it's at very heavy. I wasn't able to tell how large the attacking group was, or if it was even a group outside at all. Keep the Cades up! If one falls, they all fall.

EDIT: Looking outside, there are two zombies. -_-

Also if anyone sees Raddacoin, kill him immediately, he is a PKer and GKer, and I personally I ahve seen him destroy two generators so far. This is not a major problem, we can find generators in the hardware store, but it is a nucience to go get fuel.

16th September 06

The Loose Cannons and The Cannonball Crew have rallied at the mall. All survivors are invited to join us through our forum. All groups in the area are also invited to contact us through the diplomacy section of our forum. If we work together we can win this! --Koppie 02:47, 17 September 2006 (BST)

Using my newly found binoculars, I took a peek out of the NE building in three directions. As far as I can tell, the largest gathering of zombies is a group of 12 at a hospital to the NW.

15th September 06

Survivor numbers are growing as news of the oncoming big bash reaches us. I took a headcount of 3/4 of the mall but fell asleep before I could count the NW corner. As of right now, 367 survivors poulate those three corners. We can hold them here!

EDIT: 93 more in the NW corner, bringing us up to... uhhh... 460!

12th September 06

Massive attack on the Dewes building, at least 15 people dead, revives are being requested at the finch monument.

11th September 06

5~ zombies killed in the Dewes building on the 10th, no activity since then. Survivor numbers in the hundreds

5th September, 2006

Nilloc97 is a zed spy. i witnessed him trash the geni and radio in the dowdney mall. I tried killing him but only got him down to 10 HP. hunt him down!

16th March 06

- All of the buildings adjacant to the mall are barricaded to heavily or above, trapping many survivors outside. Survivors at the mall are asked to be vigilant and maintain entry points.

3rd May 06

- Zombies waiting for revives at the Binning Monument are being headshot left and right. Please revive anyone not brain rotted, instead of shooting them all.

26th May 06

- The mall is extremely heavily barricaded on all 4 corners, with quite a few survivors inside, as well as running gennies. Plenty of safehouses nearby as well.

10th July 06


13th July 06

- Zeds are still storming the Mall and areas around it. The dewes building was hit as well as the hospital. Re-inforcements may be needed if the messages sent on the 9th-11th are correct. A horde of zeds is on its way to wipe out the mall and claim the area. Those within the mall must Check the cades, re-pair them even if zeds are inside.Dump any bodies outside. Heal Themselves and those around them before they even think about killing the zeds inside. Priority is to dig in for the long haul and hope they get bored and move on. Which is unlikely but so is the idea that you could ever keep back the undead hordes. We need more defenders however. Not just for the mall but for the hospital and the necrotech building.(R3)

-5:20PM UK time 4 more zeds attack the hospital Re-inforcements badly needed. i ran out of AP defending necrotech. Have none left to help the Hospital.The Mall itself is still under human control but by the looks of it its only a matter of days before a large enough horde arrives to really put us under pressure.(R3)

16th July 06

- Sixtus General and the Dewes Necrotech building continue to report break ins. Portions of the mall itself have been breached as well, especially the SE corner, but so far the invasions have been minor and quickly dealt with. The mall is still firmly in human hands.

3rd August 2006

- The Anthony Building is open to survivors at the moment. The mall itself has been extremely heavily barricaded. Although it is still in human hands, no one can enter without Free Running.
