Basic Info:

  • Factories have no internal descriptions.
  • Factories can be barricaded normally.



This is a factory located in the suburb of Pescodside alongside the border with nearby Rolt Heights to the west. The factory was well known to residents of Pescodside before the "Malton Incident" as it was the "Happy-Happy Fun-Fun Sugar Mill". The sugar mill was opened in 1956 and helped supply large quantities of raw sugar to various food industries throughout Malton, but it became infamous when children from miles around began to travel to the sugar mill in order to take its daily factory tour, not so much for its educational value, but rather the free samples of raw sugar handed out at the tour's end. Old folks would say that on a good day you could spot over a dozen children running laps around the outskirts of the entire factory or performing other pointless hyper activities as they burned off their near spasm-inducing sugar rush.

By 1962 the lines of children visiting the factory drew the wary attention of parents for even with all their running around many local children had become somewhat obese. Realizing the sugar was to blame parents protested until the factory was obligated not to provide free sugar to children. Of course by then the children had become fixated to their daily sugar rush and it was not long before a plot was hatched by a group of children to get the sugar they desired. One night in June 1963 the children managed to sneak onto the factory grounds. To this day no one knows for sure how they accomplished the task, but police later learned they managed to break inside Sugar Processing Facility 02, which was no doubt unfamiliar to them as it was not a part of the original tour. Even so they finally located what they had sought after, a mountain of raw sugar that filled one the facility's large processing vats. With no other way to reach the sugar they craved the children had no other choice but to leap into the vat from an adjoining catwalk.
HH-Brand Sugar, a raw red sugar only produced by the "Happy-Happy Fun-Fun Sugar Mill" in Pescodside. (WARNING: No artificial food coloring added...)

No one doubts the children must have gorged themselves on as much sugar as they could stomach before they attempted to leave, only then to discover that the loose sugar alongside the walls of the vat provided no way for them to scale their way back out. All of the children had become trapped inside the processing vat and no one was within earshot to hear their cries for help. Even with so much sugar in their bodies in the passing hours the children must have fallen sound asleep by the next morning when technicians started the vat's massive mixer blades...

Survivors who sleep overnight at the factory rarely do so in Sugar Processing Facility 02, as rumor has it that some of the survivors who did were awoken late at night to the sounds of screaming children, cut short by the sudden grinding of metal blades. Those that speak of the event are usually so unnerved they never return to the factory ever again.

Noted NecroTech scientist, Caleb Usher has never visited the haunted factory, but is reported to take his coffee with five packets of Happy-Happy Fun-Fun Sugar from the local mill. He's known to have quite a sweet tooth and a taste for that particular brand of odd red sugar.

Barricade Policy

This building should be Extremely Heavily 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 location. This location is meant to serve as a safehouse for Malton's veteran survivors, and thus requires the Free Running skill to be properly utilized.

Survivors who find the location'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 this location. Any survivor found 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 must present a valid reason for their actions or be labeled a zombie spy/death cultist and be judged accordingly.

Current Events

May 13th, 2010 - The Burchell Arms Regulars confirmed that the factory was Extremely Heavily (EHB) barricaded, powered, and has a working radio transmitter. All the comforts of home and no zombies inside or outside. What more could you ask for? --Mobius

March 20th, 2010 - The Burchell Arms Regulars reported that the factory was Extremely Heavily (EHB) barricaded with no zombies inside or outside. The factory is also lit-up with a generator, but no radio. --Mobius

December 20th, 2008 - The Burchell Arms Regulars have decreed that the factory's barricade level will henceforth be raised from Very Strongly (VS+2) barricaded to Extremely Heavily (EHB) barricaded. This change was made concurrently with a downgrade in the barricade level of a nearby junkyard. The rundown junkyard will now serve as a new entry-point in place of the factory (now deemed a valuable resource location).

December 13th, 2008 - The Burchell Arms Regulars reported that the factory was zombie-free. The building was also powered and Extrememly Heavily barricaded at the time, as talks were underway to determine whether the factory should be maintained at this new barricade level while another less important building selected as a new entry-point.

November 19th, 2008 - The Burchell Arms Regulars have reported that while the factory is still doing well, in terms of barricades and lack of zombies eating people inside it, the situation could be better. As such, survivors interested in camping out at a location where they can expect the barricades to be maintained at Very Strongly (VS+2) are encouraged to stay here. The BAR plans to work towards keeping the building open as an entry-point.

November 18th, 2008 - Nick Crandell, of the Burchell Arms Regulars, helped fortify the barricades to Very Strongly and fueled the factory's generator. The BAR is working to maintain the building as one of its entry-points to the group's headquarters, namely the Burch'.

November 15th, 2008 - The Burchell Arms Regulars have recaptured the factory after the recent zombie assault against the suburb left many buildings in ruins. Actually there are still zombies in the area. At this time the building is Very Heavily barricaded.

October 6th, 2008 - The Burchell Arms Regulars reclaimed the factory in the name of the B.A.R. and all that is good. So to speak. The building has since been cleared of zombies and was Extremely Heavily barricaded.

August 12th, 2007 - The Undeadites stopped by to sample your HH-Brand Red Sugar, as well as all of the mill's employees. Delicious....we give it 4 cortexes! --Creeping Crud U 19:47, 12 August 2007 (BST)
