Basic Info:

  • A Street is a city block containing no buildings or monuments. There are a variety of other names besides Street including Alley, Avenue, Boulevard, Drive, Grove, Lane, Row, Square, Walk, Place, etc.
  • This is an empty block, and cannot be barricaded.

This street is home to one of the two billboards in Pegton.

Description

A wide street, whose houses are hemmed in by stone cliffs on both sides; a billboard stands on the lip of the western escarpment. The billboard originally drew attention to the geological wonders of the area, but is now usually tagged with messages that can be obscene, obscure, obfuscatory or simply obvious.

In-game description

Humans and zombies alike will see the following (permanent) description when standing in Lakey Way:

"You are at Lakey Way.

An advertising billboard has been obliterated with missing-person signs."

Such a description is always followed by a description of what has been spraypainted on the billboard there, but since that description is never permanent and always subject to change, it is redundant to include it here as well.

History

Lakey Way has the distinction of being the place in the country where the Earth's crust is thinnest, as it lies at the lowest point of Malton's Great Rift Valley, several dozen metres below sea level. Only the eastern escarpment's rock prevents it being inundated by Dentonside's swamps.

Lakey plays glove puppets with two priceless skulls.

The area hit the headlines in the 1960s, when anthropologist Professor Richard Lakey and his team discovered humanoid bones which conclusively proved the homo pegtoniens and homo dentoniens were in fact separate species. Controversially, tool records indicated that h.pegtoniens was the dominant species, and kept a domesticated breed of h.dentoniens as a kind of slave tribe.

To prevent vandalism and sabotage of the precious dig sites by irate Dentonians, security guards were posted at Parkhouse Towers, and the finds - including ancient pottery - were secured at The Linney Museum.
