October 4th, 2009 - Mall has been repeatedly ruined by the Ridleybank Resistance Front. --Papa Johnny 17:55, 6 October 2009 (BST)

July 21, 2009 Mall is under continual attack, though not exactly under siege. The Undeadites continue their siege on the area, and aren't targetting the mall as much as they are the resource buildings - this may mean they're pulling out the supports before fully attacking the mall. Currently, there are occasional breakins by groups of around ten, but they've been held back so far. --Thorgold 17:33, 21 July 2009 (BST)

July 2009

July 15, 2009 Safe by definition, but then again, maybe not. 5 zeds busted in, but the barricades were repaired quite quickly and they're currently locked inside. One zed is outside, as well as quite a few zeds in the surrounding area - too tired to count now, but estimate is around two dozen spread in a 7x7 square around the building - a feeding call might make things ugly if they all respond. --Thorgold 07:53, 16 July 2009 (BST)

June 21, 2009

Updated to "safe". Fairly large number of survivors inside. Scarce zombies around the area. EHB+ on all sides. -- User:Captain Rhodes II 16:58, 21 June 2009 (GMT)

Zombies now outnumber breathers inside the mall. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem!

Feberuary 14, 2009 All survivors have fled or died all four corners are ruined. -Barroom Hero 22:13, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Feberuary 12, 2009 Apparently hundreds of survivors in other corners couldn't spare their time to defend the south-east corner. 15 zombies inside to, still, hundreds of survivors, so we'll see. --Major Dick 06:37, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

November 2008

November 18th

Shoppers looking for sales in the SW corner have been shocked to find that the Sears has been completely ruined, and the Hot Topic is even more ransacked than normal. Zombies with RRF and AU10 written on them seem to be milling about mumbling about bananas. --DonTickles 18:48, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

September 20th

Hello this is trainee Miker of the Gotch Plaza Police transmitting on 28.00mhz. We are staying at VSB so we are a good entry point to the mall. We have many officers here so if the zombies attack we will be able to defend. --Miker 20:41, 20 September 2008 (BST)

The Militant Order of Barhah have ruined the south-west of the mall too. Survivors fight valiantly but as of yet they are losing the battle --TouchingVirus 19:55, 15 July 2008 (BST)

July 14th, 2008 After the surprise attack by the Militant Order of Barhah earlier today, the south east corner has been repaired and now stands with some very heavy barricades --TouchingVirus 17:30, 14 July 2008 (BST)

There are 14 zombies in the Southeast corner and 1 human. Doors have been secure but we need assistance in the southeast corner of Marven Mall.
Currently there is a group zombies in the South-East Quad, which is ruined with doors opened onto the street. Remember, try to keep the news POV Neutral (Not easy, I'm sure you'll find my own POV here and there over the next few days ) but there's no need not to sign your comments =) --TouchingVirus 21:27, 14 July 2008 (BST)

July 3, 2008 Over two hundred survivors hanging about. The author of this update is worried that the hazeldine's 21 may prove to be a threat.--Pistolieer 22:58, 3 July 2008 (BST)

June 11th

Mall is well-lit and caded. On the way here, I bumped into a group of 11 zeds in the Nich Building, and it has fallen into Zombie hands. John Ibans 13:18, 11 June 2008 (BST)

April 2008

April 18th

3/4ths of the mall has been ruined and only a few survivors are in the NE corner. This mall is definitely ransacked, but I didn't count how many were in it, so I won't call it "In Zombie hands" yet. --Silas Morth 16:51, 19 April 2008 (EST)

April 9th

The mall is caded and powered. Looks safe. Oh, and the museum 4 blocks NW has a zombie inside with a flak jacket.--Pistolieer 23:55, 9 April 2008 (BST)

April 1st

The mall is controlled by suvivors. Large suvivor garthering. Listen to 28.17 for broadcasts from MMS.--Grle94 02:59, 1 April 2008 (BST)

March 23rd

The mall is still in zombie hands and every attempt at reclaiming it is met with resistance from the zombies in the area. Until the Old Navy store reopens or the zombies clear out this mall is best left deserted. --DCC 19:52, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

March 16, 2008

Some harmanz caded and unruined the building. Needless to say, it ended in failure with a light snack for the mall'a undead shoppers. My zombie showed up in time to ruin 2 corners, finish 2 humans off and take down the last of the cades from the SE corner. RIP Marven. Saromu Sucks

March 8, 2008 - All your bra!nz are belong to us.... Creeping Crud U 20:26, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Woke up after not playing for a few weeks to find myself surrounded by 48 zombies. All of N. and S. Blythewille are gone. I have a feeling today is going to suck. --Matt the harper 23:31, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

March 7, 2008 It's probably safe to assume Marven Mall is down. ULC is wide open, has 120 zeds and 1 human left standing. Mall is unpowered, i didn't see any radios, entry point seems down as well. - Yeeth 15:11, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

March 7, 2008 Cades went up but are back down. ULC has more zeds (88) than harmanz. PD retaken, alt entry point is ruined. -Yeeth 13:58, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

March 7, 2008 Cades are down in the ULC and 25 or so zombies are in, with more following. --The Old Professor 02:00 (EST), 7 March 2008

March 7, 2008 The NW wing of the mall has been re-barricaded, and the Mall seems safe enough for now... More as it happens. -- Caketopus 16:35, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

March 6, 2008 Warning. The Dead is coming.--Anonymous 23:27, 6 March 2008 (EST)

March 6, 2008 Zeds continue a concentrated attack on the NW corner. A handful have made inside and are being beaten back. 1/2 the mall is now without power. Large numbers of survivors still in the mall. Looting of the gun stores and drug stores rampant as survivors stock up for the onslaught.--Timmyw 19:38, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

March 6, 2008 10 Zombies on the NW corner, and they're attacking the barricades from the outside, we must keep the 'cades up! --Blackened78 17:24, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

A few zombies have broken in a number of times today but the building is re-caded. Necropolis123 18:26, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

March 5, 2008 - 2:52PM (EST) All barricades are down! About 130 zeds outside of Gotch and all are about to make their way in. Would the people in Marven mall please help us!? static - Gotch Police Dept. Defender

Malachi 3:2 "But who can endure the day of Our coming? And who can stand when We appear? --Zambargh the Ravener 18:42, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

March 5, 2008 According to radio broadcast at 1:27PM Eastern Standard Time, neighboring building 'Gotch Police Department' 1W of NW corner, an entry point to the mall is under siege by at least 150 zombies. Hundreds more are being reported in the area, radio chatter resembles that of a war zone. The survivors in the mall needs to reinforce the Gotch Plaza PD.

March 5, 2008 It is late at night & all is quiet on the western front. Zombies still surround the mall & adjacent buildings, but there is no activity for now. . . All will begin again in the morning. Reinforcements are still needed. - Gotch Police Dept. Defender

March 5, 2008 Zed count outside adjacent Gotch Police Dept Building are increasing into the 30s. Reinforcements are needed at that building. Barricades are currently "very strong". Again, reinforcements are needed, anyone who could had training with weapons or medicine please assist.--Sgthastings 04:32, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

Match 5, 2008 Club Penfold barricades are down, they are getting inside. Requesting immediate reinforcements! They are co-*gunshots* static - First Sergeant Mason Banks

March 4, 2008 Gotch PD is currently secure and heavily barricaded. Club Penfold's barricades are down and zombies are entering the building. --The Old Professor 02:29, 5 March 2008 (UTC) 9:29PM (EST) March 4, 2008.

March 4, 2008 All surrounding buildings have been engulfed by zombies. About 20 on each building. Further reinforcement of Gotch Police Department & Club Penfold is suggested. DO NOT let them surround Marven Mall!--Sgthastings 02:01, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

March 4, 2008 80+ Zeds just NW of Marven Mall. Siege is imminent.--JohnBens 10:55AM (EST) March 4,2008

March 2, 2008 Survivors inside Marven Mall need to realign their defenses and prepare for a siege. That means people have to be spread equally throughout all four Mall quads, and people need to stop wasting ammunition and Action Points picking off random zombies outside the window.--Tarumigan 11:50AM (EST) March 2,2008

March 1, 2008 Marven Mall has been declared one of the regroup points for the 400 defenders of Ackland Mall that escaped the initial assault before the mall fell. All survivor groups link up here for safety if needed.--COM 5 11:10AM (EST) March 1,2008

Feburary 11, 2008 Lights on and barricaded to EHB, very few zombies in proximity. --Memoman 21:35, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

January 2, 2008 there is currently a good number of people pking with no good reason,like one person was killed for having a space between every letter in his name, also, i was just pked because i destroyed the christmas tree because christmas is long gon (by mr q) so don't do anythig even slightly rejectable, there are more people in the north west corner of the mall than any other places, so avoid there.--Jj the survivor 03:16, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

December 22nd' All is well. All corners EHB and powered. Looks like it will be a quiet Christmas. --Matt the harper 21:07, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

November 13th, 2007 About 45 zombies in Mall, upper left to lower right 3/3/1/36. Many zombies in the surrounding area and the adjencent suburb. Feels not good, looking for shelter ist hard due to a lot of ruined buildings. --Frunobulax 10:08, 13 November 2007 (UTC) - edit: just found the information that the suburb ist hit by the Second Big Bash, so no wonder about the state the neighborhood is in ... --Frunobulax 10:31, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

October 29th, 2007 Not sure when it happened, but the mall has been taken back by survivors. --Squibman 05:02, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

October 18th, 2007 Finally, after a long drawn out siege, Marven Mall has fallen into the blood soaked hands of LUE. I'd like to cordially thank our hosts for a well fought defense of the mall, as well as a succulent meal for their zed guests that lasted four days. Congratulations to my zed brethren! For glorious Barhah! --Malcalypse II 10:12am, 18 October 2007 (EST)

October 16th, 2007 Over a hundred brave, or foolish survivors huddle in the NW quadrant of the mall. The southern half of the mall is ruined and thirty or so Zeds are poised to pick off the remaining survivors one by one. --Electrasol 00:16, 17 October 2007 (BST)

Can a group please make a plan to keep NW corner powered, for the sake of supplying the last survivors in and around Marvin Mall with ammunition. It is a crucial responsibility someone needs to take on. DanceDanceRevolution 11:31, 17 October 2007 (BST)

October 15th, 2007

The SE corner remains ruined, with a handful of survivors in the SW, and a mass of 139 in the NW, the open ruined corner spells doom for the survivors if enough feral and any organized groups of zombies can get in during the night. How many of the survivors huddled in fear in the NW corner are brave enough to sleep exposed to the ravening undead? This night will tell the story. --Electrasol 02:50, 16 October 2007 (BST)

Both SW and SE corners ruined, 20+ in SE and 1 in SW. And for the literate survivors, there are at leased 2 different 'survivors' in each corner of the Marven Mall with LUE in both their name AND their group at one time. So please do us a favour and kill them, don't let them sit here and break out generators. And can a few people clear out the SW corner and repair it, there's 1 zed in there with 30 hp, it shouldnt be too hard. DanceDanceRevolution 07:56, 15 October 2007 (BST)

October 13th 2007

Marven Mall recovered quite quickly, and most survivors played by the rules. But there are a few bad apples in the way of zergers:


Tsk tsk. - Brona 15:48, 13 October 2007 (BST)

October 12th 2007

Update: SE corner regained but definitely needs more survivors. At least 10+ zeds outside that corner with only 4 survivors. Come help reinforce the SE corner! --VMDX 03:55, 13 October 2007 (BST)

As of 8:30pm(GMT-5:00) Marven Mall has been breeched and the southeast corner has been lost.

October 11th 2007

The rumours are that after their failed attack neigh a month ago, LUE are planning a revenge strike, possibly in the next few days! Currently their forces are centered in Dartside. Vigilance is advised.--Weekendwarrior 21:58, 11 October 2007 (BST)

September 20th, 2007 The Mall's as peaceful as a sleeping baby Jesus. 234 survivors in the upper left corner, all corners powered and EHB. Occasionally Lovelock or Gotch will experience a little turbulence but overall, Zack appears to be in hiding. I've been trekking out to Greentown or Tapton to do my hunting. Is there some way to encourage a siege? I'm getting bored. --OllieQueen 21:26, 20 September 2007 (BST)

August 23rd, 2007 Marven Mall benefits from a little zerging:

Here are three, all the same guy, and there is a fourth whose profile I don't have:

KineticAeris KineticAeros KineticR1

I mean, at least he could try to be a little less obvious:

* Riff Freelance killed a zombie. (7 minutes ago)
* KineticR1 injected a zombie with a syringe and it slumped to the floor. (6 minutes ago) ...and again. (5 minutes ago)
* Riff Freelance killed a zombie. (5 minutes ago)
* KineticAeris killed a zombie. (2 minutes ago) ...and another. (1 minute ago)

Lost the log I had of the other two doing the same damn thing. If you guys can take a minute out of trying to throw us out and do something about that, it'd be nice. He has almost as many alts as there are LUE members here. --Vito Mortis

Radio reports are coming in that the zombie horde could be at Marven within one day. There is also a small group to the Southeast that could be moving in to meet with the larger horde. Still unknown whether or not the horde intends to lay siege.

August 21st, 2007 It is rumored that a large zombie horde is currently en-route to South Blythville, Marven Mall specifically. No First hand experience has been forthcoming, but a Zombie force numbering in the 100's are supposed to be heading in Marven's Direction out of North Blythville. How much of this is a scare tactic over the radio, or truth, is as of yet unknown. Battle orders have been spray painted in all areas of the mall, and there has been a perceived increase in feral activity around the mall, although it may not be significant. PKs are still occurring, although this is not new. The general scent in the air of the mall is a mix of Fear, apprehension, and Stubbornness. One can assume that the mall is gearing up for a defensive war, whether the threat is real or not. --Kurisukun 06:02, 21 August 2007 (BST)

July 30th, 2007 The Mall is at EHB on all four corners, and I don't have Free Running. A few zombies loitering at marked revive points in the area.      Ekashp wuz here (aht harman bra!nz!)        03:46, 31 July 2007 (BST)
May 12, 2007 Team Zombie Hardcore Is relocating to Marven Mall to begin clearing out PKer groups who have recently attacked Team Zombie Hardcore, Olney Militie, and other unoffiliated survivors in North Blythville. Residents of Marven Mall are encouraged to have fun, be safe, and shout "BALLS TO THE WHALLS" from time to time to let the Hardcore Homies know that they are welcome. If anyone needs anything, contact me and I will relay messages to Team Zombie Hardcore. Thanks for having us Marven Mall. --Big Nixon 16:59, 13 May 2007 (BST)

April 23, 20007 Spearheaded by members of the Nine Unknown Men, the mall and surrounding areas have been cleared of zombies and barricaded heavily. Power will be restored imminently, while ancillary buildings will be redeveloped shortly.

April 2, 20007 Mall tour '07 is here! The 100 zombies shout barhah and wave bananas as survivors are dragged screaming from the building! All survivors should run or something because Marven's defences currently aren't that great. And someone move that February stuff to history or something, that stuff is OLD.

  • Done and Done. ;D
