With the annual tradition of survivors attempting to drive zombies out of the legendary zombie homeland occuring next month, survivors and zombies alike may want to start preparing and planning now. The official location for planning on both sides is on NecroConnect --Jerran1 NecroConnect Creator/Admin 22:59, 9 October 2015 (UTC)

After partying their way around Havercroft the RRF is wrapping up its 10 year reunion at the location of its original founding - Moggridge_Place_Police_Department - with plenty of z!ng!ng an danz!ng led by former papa Murray Jay Suskind and many other storied zetheren who have come out of retirement to join the festivities. Habbah reunion RRF! --Rick Dulton (talk) 04:50, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

August 9, 2015

Ridleybank continues to be occupied by the RRF. Survivor activity is sparse and primarily barricade strafing or so it seems to the zombie on the street. The area should generally be considered a less than ideal sleeping location for survivors and less than stellar dining opportunity for zombies. -- Pete (RRF)

Survivors continue to apply pressure to Ridleybank with many critical TRP's changing hands on a daily basis. Over the last week, survivors have been pushed back from consistently maintaining 75%+ of Ridleybank (Feb 28 - Mar 7, 2011) to currently keeping 35%-50% of the suburb repaired and secure at any given time. --Bad Attitude BarbieSDN 03:37, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Summary report, RRF targeting TRPs. Adalbert, St. Mark's, St. Jude's, and St. Luke's Hospitals are all occupied by DoHS. All Ridleybank factories and both Moggridge and Blomfield PDs are ruined and occupied. In Stanbury Village Nichols Mall is down. --Wraith 18:29, 29 August 2010 (BST)

Since the RRF was away, multiple survivor groups see it as a good chance to invade the suburb and capture the Blackmore Building. Now the RRF has returned in full force, immediately making the suburb Very Dangerous. Thus, another epic and historic siege is going on once again at this prominent building. -- Kittithaj 13:53, 28 August 2010 (BST)

There seems to be a cat and mouse game playing out in Ridleybank. A small group of devoted survivors has about half the suburb cade strafed. They're moving around a lot between buildings to avoid break ins. None of the resource buildings are repaired. Just bars and train stations and the like.--Ronny Billcraft 21:29, 9 April 2010 (BST)

The Ridleybank Reclamation Army, initiated by the AZS marches into Ridleybank to protest annihilate the RRF's unfair policies. Vigorously. The RRA launches an assault on the Blackmore Building, managing to hold it up for half a day under massive RRF assault. --Penguinpyro 02:24, 7 April 2010 (BST)

March 22nd

After days of break-ins and fighting the Blackmore Building has fallen. The survivors holding the building, including several documented zergers, were either killed or fled. The combined zombie forces, made up of ferals and members of the Department of Homeland Security's Praetorian Guard, claimed that the occupants had been violating Order 1.1 of the local barricade plan and thus merited forceful eviction. Survivors still hold several surrounding buildings. -- Papa Jadkor (RRF) (MotA) (MT11) 02:00, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

March 18th

NecroWatch reported in from the Blackmore Building today. A recent NecroNet scan revealed that there were 69 zombies within scanning range of the facility. Of these numbers, 12 zombies were at the Blackmore facility itself, 9 zombies were at Blomfield Grove PD, while 4 zombies were at both Margaret General Hospital and St. George's Hospital. The remaining detected zombies numbered 3 or fewer at any other given location. --Mobius 12:31, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Ridleybank is as safe as I have ever seen it, with most buildings repaired and caded, including many of the hospitals and other resource buildings.

February 16th

Sent in a zed alt to have a look around-maybe 6 buildings lit, 14 repaired, and the rest wrecked, with zeds everywhere. Buildings with lights on are surrounded by zeds. Found some idiot who APed out outside and had a feast. Even without the RRF officially wrecking the place, the ferals can keep Ridleybank in ruins

The battle of whack-a-mole continues as the DHPD and RRF home guard continue to duke it out in a fight worth grabbing your popcorn for. If you've got UDBrain, now would be a good time to use it as the play by play is extremely compelling; however only one side can emerge victorious.


Highlights:
Blackmore is still down, however the buildings on the periphery of the complex are repaired and the suburb is in contention. A quick sweep of the suburb determines small pockets of resistance from both zombie and survivor parties fighting each other for every inch of the area.

Doesn't sound like a ghost town to me. Sounds like there's at least 50 zombies in the suburb, not a single safe house, and who knows how many zombies indoors. Quite clearly very dangerous. --Pyrranha 18:47, 10 June 2009 (BST)

After a short hiatus of some weeks or so, the struggle in Ridleybank has began to burst back in it's usual harsh motion. Small groups of scattered survivors jumps from a rebuild shelter to another, while the horde leaves a new fresh trail of ruins in it's chase.

Ridleybank is springing to life in the absence of its denizens, during their Culture Shock Tour. The Blackmore NT and St Simon's hospital are open for business, which admittedly is brisk given the number of zombies left behind having missed the 'tour bus'. A recent NT scan revealed that most zombies are scattered in numerous groups of 1-3. However, some larger groups have formed, viz.

Blackmore NT: 11; Margaret General Hospital: 14; Adalbert General Hospital: 4; Moggridge PD: 4.

Southern Ridleybank has few ruins, but caution is advised for adventure tourists who are visiting Ridleybank in lieu of Fallujah, Mogadishu or Compton. Estimated danger level: Dangerous. -- Mallrat 15:30, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

February 20th

I'm more preoccupied with not running out of AP, but it seems to be Very Dangerous. That is, very dangerous if you're sitting in the only repaired hospital in the suburb. Wide-open ruins seem to be fine. But they aren't asking can you stay alive, they're asking is almost every building ruined, which it is. Or looks that way. Some who isn't trying to stay alive should do a proper review of the suburb, a zombie. I'm leaving it as-is. In a zombie apocolypse, it's almost always better to err on the side of caution. In Ridleybank, it's always better to err on the side of caution.--Ryvyoli Y R 04:37, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

January 27th

It's Dangerous, though admittedly barely. The majority of TRPs are in survivor hands, but many are ruined. Same goes for non-descripts. A fair number of zombies in the suburb, but they're scattered -- but almost certainly enough to make the suburb Dangerous. --WanYao 06:36, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

The Blackmore building is gone with 14 dead bodies inside and only a handful of survivors holding out near by. There are several 6-10 man zed groups finishing what barricades still stand--Binlaggin 10:37, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

January 25th

After allot changing of the suburb color I did a quick scout myself. Lots of small zombie groups attacking buildings. Some buildings are ruined, like Blomfield PD but the majority of the TRP's are in survivor hands. Still, zombies are claiming their buildings fast and at this rate Ridleybank will be dead and orange in a few days, however the current situation does imply Moderate. Its not my fault the main RRF force is on excursion.--Thadeous Oakley 15:32, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Tired of seeing a lit suburb zombies from all over flooded into Ridleybank, zombie numbers have increased with around 50, however excursion of the RRF still strives on, so where these zombies comes from, no one knows. Anyway, Moggridge and blackmore has fallen and zombie numbers inside blackmore is around +20. Things are looking grim (;)) Praetorian Guard zambah 04:05, 23 january 2009 (UTC)

At least 92 zombies on the streets. Breakdown of the Tactical Resource Points:

  • 1 NecroTech: ruined.
  • 2 Police depts & 4 factories: without power.
  • 7 hospitals: 1 powered, 3 not, 3 ruined.

Additionally, a single powered building was seen, and many of the remaining buildings are in ruins. With less than half of the TRPs ruined, signs of power (i.e. conflict in the suburb) and apparently less than 150 zombies, this fits the given description of Dangerous. --Funt Solo QT Scotland flag.JPG 20:17, 12 October 2008 (BST)

September 21st

Approximately 37 zombies outdoors, with a further 11 counted indoors (10 in the Blackmore Building), makes for an estimated 48 zombies total in the suburb. Given the mass ruination of the area (only 2 hospitals out of the 14 Tactical Resource Points are not ruined), this appears to qualify as a Ghost Town, given the danger level descriptions. As such, and without any other evidence to go on, I'm changing the danger level. --Funt Solo QT Scotland flag.JPG 22:54, 21 September 2008 (BST)

This is not a ghost town. Shoppers from the newly opened Nichols Mall are moving into the area and making it look nice. Also, the group of zombies in and around Blackmore qualify as a horde. --Ronny Billcraft 01:38, 22 September 2008 (BST)

I've got a report to the same effect- the only building in town which isn't in great shape is St. George's Hospital, and the largest group of zombies is 17 strong (probably more like 30, once some of the 27 nearby bodies stand up). Downgrading to moderate.--FT MCI 06:36, 5 May 2008 (BST)

There are 13 zombies outside the Blackmore right now. Which means Ridely's technically not a ghost town... But that group outside the Blackmore is the only substantial mob in the whole suburb. In total I counted, still, just over 40 zombies in the streets. Meanwhile, though much of the south side is 'cade strafed or better, most of the north is ruined; in total, well over 1/2 the burb is ruined... --WanYao 03:21, 30 April 2008 (BST)

Despite the previous report, the Blackmore is powered and EHB and has been for a couple days, now. The kilt-wearing survivors inside have been exposing themselves at the handful of zombies that are in the area before opening fire. I'm not sure in what world 45 zombies in an entire suburb qualifies as "Very Dangerous," but despite the relatively low survivor presence, much of the southern half of the suburb is now barricaded to at least some degree or another. --Gregory 02:03, 28 April 2008 (BST)

Using that formula, I updated it to ghost town. There are fewer than sixty zombies, and the largest horde (outside the NT) is six. Very dangerous only applies to massive hordes and zombies occupying most resource buildings. --Goolina The Kilt Store 20:54, 28 April 2008 (BST)

Of these numbers, 107 zombies were detected assaulting the Blackmore facility directly, 10 zombies were at Blomfield Grove PD, 7 zombies were at Moggridge Place PD, and at 6 zombies were at St. Theodore's Church.

Z population has gone up since my last report, but the only major horde is the Blackmore. There are only 2 or 3 ruins I see. A scan from blackmore counts 100 at blackmore, and 2 other mobs in the teens, and about 20 other zeds(liberal count). It is truly a sad day for the RFF, when it's capital falls. I mantain my previous statement, as I sleep with no fear in Ridleybank tonight. BoboTalkClown 21:48, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
I'd like to point out that the RRF is somewhere else at this moment, leaving a bunch of uncoordinated zombies behind.-- Mordac the Refuser 00:30, 23 January 2008 (UTC)
Anyways, Blackmore has 105 survivors and 95 zombies, with 67 bodies outside. Nearby revive points are filled with career zombies and dead survivors alike.--Xshu 04:11, 23 January 2008 (UTC)


January 21, '08

Seeing the reports, this burb should be orange.I have been there myself and there is no horde above 150! A horde is a group of active zombies around the same area, not all dead (standing or lying) spread around a entire area. And even counting using Grims way I didn't come to 150. Also most buildings are barricaded and lit.--Nemesis Omega 20:23, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Ridleybank stays Red.
Link doenst work anymore, but I have seen it though and I doubt that most of those dead bodies ever stand up. After some much assaults on Blackmore, I think alot of those dead bodies are inactive. Show me a link where there are atleast 120 zeds standing. I doubt the survivors kill 80 zeds (amount of lying dead) in a day at Blackmore--Nemesis Omega 07:14, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Blackmore Powered, Fully Caded, not a ruin in sight. No zombies at all, but the 100+ at Blackmore. I suggest the suburb become orange, at least. BoboTalkClown 16:51, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
I agree with the change of the suburb danger level. After doing a tour, there is only one zombie horde that is over 50 - many buildings are back up and barricaded as well. --Ryiis 17:08, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

January 19, '08

Ridleybank is obscenely safe for the living at the moment with the RRF out of town. The only "horde" is the group attacking the Blackmore Building, and no ruins are in sight. In short, the zombie homeland looks like Trenchie central. That doesn't mean survivors should sleep outside, though. My zombie alt clawed one idiot to death and severely wounded another at Gaskell Lane. The second survivor is still asleep if anyone is peckish for a late night snack... --TerminalFailure

Blackmore held for day six. Powered, fully caded with 100+ zeds outside sporadically breaking in and quickly met with head shots and trips back outside. Most buildings around unruined and caded. Route to mall free and clear. ----UCSBrandon 21:30, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

A NecroNet report posted by NecroWatch from the Blackmore Building indicate that there are 149 zombies within scanning range. Of these numbers, and to no one's surprise, 113 zombies are shown assaulting the Blackmore facility itself. While most of the remaining zombies were scattered, there were 5 zombies at Buttery Row School and 8 zombies at Hollwey Street School. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mobius187 (talkcontribs) at 12:10, on 16 January 2008.

  • November 21
The Second Battle of Blackmore is entering a new phase. Survivors are losing people at an increasing rate and the zombies outside are organized into strike teams that are proving extremely effective, getting through the doors in groups as large as 30 while survivor numbers are too low to throw them out quickly. At least 50 survivors have been killed today alone and it's unclear how many will be revived before the zombies strike again tomorrow. There are currently 230 zombies outside Blackmore and 120 survivors- as well as 30 zombies- inside.
Also, the revive zone has been moved inside St. Theo's church, due to popular demand and general tactics which, given the above, will hopefully serve a purpose.
Update: As of this writing, the Blackmore Building has been cleared of survivors and ransacked.
  • November 18
The Battle of Blackmore intensifies. The last days have seen a significant rise in zombie numbers. This can be explained as the zombie presence outside Nichols Mall, in neighbouring Stanbury Village, has dropped to zero. Inside the Blackmore Building are now 209 survivors.

Despite the rumors of barricade strafing, most buildings in Ridleybank have survivors in them, while it is true that a majority of the 5/11 force is in the Blackmore Building. In other news, zombie numbers are rising as well.
Update: Survivors inside the Blackmore Building are down to 199, there are still 2 zombies present. The barricades are standing at lightly, today just may be the second fall of the Blackmore.
Another update: Any news on the current status of the Blackmore Building should be considered out of date as, as soon as it's posted, the situation has changed.

If you like exact numbers, There are 219 survivors inside the Blackmore Building, and several more throughout the area. Zombie numbers are un-known, however break-ins are extremely frequent, and I really don't recommend staying inside the building.

October 2006

  • October 31st 2006
The ever classy New Malton Collosus has moved into ridleybank, spearheaded by the malton rangers we aim to finally liberate ridleybank from its 'resistance front' and on this, surely its hallowed day.
  • October 26th, 2006
As November 5 draws ever nearer, zombies should start migrating toward Ridleybank.
  • October 14th, 2006
Sadly, I must confirm the fall of Blackmore. After a two-day trek from Giddings, I arrived to find no standing humans. Instead there were 189 zombies wandering around the lobby and cubicles smashing anything they could get their claws on. I high-tailed it out of there before they noticed me and I am now searching north for some survivors. It is with an extremely heavy heart that I bear this news...
PS- i too wandered north after the fall of Blackmore in search of more survivors. My search was motivated more by hunger and a desire for fresh brain than charity, and as for heart, well... it hasn't pumped in a week. Regardless, my point is that the north up to Roachtown appears (to me) to be just as devoured as Blackmore. But if you hold still reefmaster, i can take care of those guilt issues with a little undeadness!
  • October 13th, 2006
Note the date Blackmore fell, Friday the 13th!!!!!!
As of 17:20 GMT, all harman resistance in the Blackmore Building has ceased. The doors are open, the place is ransacked, all harmanz have left for less decaying pastures, and 200 zombies have taken up residence inside... i do not feel premature in calling this battle over. And yes, i can almost see the posts in two days about how wrong i am...
At 15:50 GMT, the Blackmore Building was ransacked.
By approximately 15:30 GMT, 150+ zombies are inside Blackmore with under 20 survivors still holding ground. Close to 300 zombies are outside the building as well. Looks like Friday the 13th has been an unlucky day for the survivors in blackmore.
By approximately 13:30 GMT, 123 zombies in Blackmore, 57 standing survivors remain. Horde of approximately 300 zombies outside.
By approximately 11:00 GMT, 61 zombies stand inside the Blackmore Building barricades, and at least 30 more survivors have been slaughtered.
As of this moment (8:26 GMT) the Blackmore Building has been breached by a mob of 31 zombies. It appears they struck when the fewest defenders were available, allowing them to force their way in and kill several survivors without suffering significant losses. 156 survivors currently defend the building.
  • October 12th, 2006
The Blackmore Building remains besieged, with around 200 survivors fending off increasingly common breakins by around 300 zombies. However, nearby buildings are reportedly also under attack, now: the Rogers Building northeast of Blackmore was attacked with more than 20 survivor casualties. This could suggest new coordination among the attacking hordes.
  • October 10th, 2006
The Ridleybank Resistance Front seems to have ceased organized opposition to the survivors in the Blackmore Building. Ferals continue to make many small break-ins, and the zombie pack outside Blackmore is near 300 again.
  • October 8th, 2006
As of this message time, there are 280 standing zeds outside of blackmore, 200 more on the ground, 50 in the revive point, and another 25 in the other 7 surrounding squares. Discontent and hunger among the hordes have led to widespread zombie on zombie combat.
  • October 5th, 2006
More than 300 zombies now stand outside the Blackmore Building, which is defended by almost 200 survivors holed up within. Barricade strength is highly variable, with small breakins occurring fairly frequently. The revive queues around the battle reportedly continue to lengthen, but the number of survivors defending Blackmore is apparently increasing, and a contingent from Caiger Mall is said to be arriving to help.
Over night the population has risen an additional 30 or 40 survivors to exactly 210 survivors inside Blackmore, and it would seem that the arrive200 and most of the BBB have been hard at work with zombies down just as many to 284 outside. The battle seems to only be heating up with nearly hourly breakins ranging from 2 to 10 zombies at each attempt but the survivors continue to valiently hold with no foreseeable end in sight for this historic seige, now being chronicled by the Channel 4 News Team as the Battle of Blackmore.
  • October 4th, 2006
Approximately 300 zombies stand outside the Blackmore Building, with 170+ survivors inside. At least 60 zombies are reportedly standing in review queues, while survivor reinforcements are rumored to be arriving from Caiger Mall and Tynte Mall.
  • October 3rd, 2006
A significant zombie incursion into Blackmore occurred this morning; reports put its strength at between 35 and 40 zombies. The break-in was repelled within a few hours; survivor numbers afterwards were, according to various reports, between 110 and 160. Approximately 260 zombies now stand outside Blackmore.

September 2006

  • September 30th, 2006
The NMC has expanded its revive zone to include Margery Ave as well as Gunningham Walk [54, 49] and Phillips Road [55, 45]. The old system of having one revive zone has gone all to hell with rotters clogging it and people sacnning the whole stack for XP. This new system is effective immediately and will hopefully alleviate some of the stress on the Margery line, which is over 50 people long.
  • September 30th, 2006
There are 148 survivors inside Blackmore, 217 zombies outside, and 230 corpses, 9 of which have been revived. At Margery there are up to 2 survivors, 45 zombies, and 64 corpses, 56 of which have been revived. More than 700 combatants...
  • September 28th, 2006
There are 185 Classy survivors inside Blackmore, 230 zombies outside, and 30 survivors on line at Margery Ave, waiting for a revive. --Ron Burgundy 23:51, 28 September 2006 (BST)
  • September 27th, 2006
The Battle of Blackmore is getting at its height. It's more than five weeks now that the Blackmore Bastard Brigade has occupied the Blackmore Building, and there's a lot of fighting going on. The zombie numbers have risen sharply last days, and as I speak there's 228 zombies standing outside of the building. The survivors still hold, however, and show no sign of tiring nor of a bad mood.

  • September 21st, 2006
More than a month collecting late fees on behalf of the Quartly Library. It seems like the Goldrush nowadays, everybody acts like it's the wild west. I wish they'd go ahead and verify the new more dangerous level for suburbs, because I'd update Ridleybank to Uber-dangerous. Sir Fred of Etruria 04:44, 21 September 2006 (BST)
  • September 20th, 2006
A member of Disciples Of Jame Gumb is moving into the area with his van to see what the story is, and the skin texture is at the blackmore building and the surrounding buildings. You will all see him soon. It puts the lotion in the basket.Cineraryone 00:58, 21 September 2006 (BST)
  • September 16th, 2006
A short, colorful history of events in the Battle of Blackmore is now on the wiki. I'm sure most people will agree the fight is one for the history books- after all, if that were not the case, it wouldn't have made as much of a stir as it has- and now it's in them! The Battle of Blackmore is ongoing, so there will, no doubt, be frequent changes and updates are welcome.

  • September 5, 2006
Members of the Blackmore Bastard Brigade have taken to referring to the areas within Ridleybank under survivor control as Greater Blackmore.

  • September 3, 2006
There are 113 standing zombies sieging the the Blackmore Building and 137 survivors defending the building inside. A couple of rotters on the Margery Avenue has been sighted too. There is a very weak zombie presence in the other areas of the Suburb, mainly because of the Big Bash.
  • September 1, 2006
Outside the Blackmore Building stand 125 zombies. Inside wait 130 survivors. Survivor morale is stated to be high, as many inside the Blackmore have survived sieges with odds worse than they're facing right now. This is highlighted by the ten fold increase in survivors over the last few days.

August 2006

  • August 31, 2006
The survivors inside the Blackmore Building, now dubbed the Blackmore Bastard Brigade, are still holding the building. The Zombies are groaning in frustration outside the barricades. All survivors in the area are invited to this very classy party.

  • August 29, 2006
There are now a full 100 Zombies directly outside the Blackmore Building. Barricades are at full, but there are frequent break-ins.
  • August 27, 2006
Every C4NT member in the Blackmore Building was sentenced to death for not adhering to the "No Barricades" law in Ridleybank by a local RRF strike team. Proof would be everyone inside the Blackmore Building at the time that had Channel 4 News Team in their group affiliation was killed. Therefore all C4NT members in Blackmore Building were killed.
Over 80 zombies now siege the Blackmore building with the rest of the suburb relatively lightly threatened by scattered zombies.

June 2006

  • June 23, 2006
The CC operation was, according to The Cannonball Crew "in fact a trick to lure the RRF into defending Ridleybank instead of Barrville. Only a handful of Cannonballs ever entered the suburb, but along with unaffiliated survivors and a mystery group (who prefers not to be named), the humans were able to barricade a good portion of the suburb." Zombies have been seen tearing down the recently erected barricades and The Cannonball Crew has apparently withdrawn from their current operation.
  • June 13, 2006
The Cannonball Crew claims to have begun an invasion of Ridleybank. They initially faced some criticism because they claimed the Loose Cannons and the Ridleybank Assault Team had joined them. Although the Canonball Crew has invited these groups, it is unclear whether any members from either team chose to participate.

May 2006

  • May 29, 2006
Town is completely in zombah hands, though there are a few who are trying to spend the night by going in and barricading as much as possible.


April 2006

  • April 30, 2006
Ridleybank is found to be a complete ghost town following several changes in the game and the wildly successful RRF EXCURSION. The suburb is unquestionably in zombie hands- except for the occasional randomly spawned humans, it is difficult to find anyone alive in Ridleybank.
  • April 10, 2006
Since it hasn't been fixed yet: The Revivication Front was an April Fool's Joke. RRF is still eating brainz. Fixed on known groups.


March 2006

  • March 31, 2006
The Ridleybank Resistance Front is now the The Ridleybank Revivification Front. The Blackmore Building will be kept open as a revive point for brain rotted RRF members.
  • March 15, 2006
The streets of Ridleybank are emptied as The RRF begin their EXCURSION, and unite their entire force for an attack on Fort Creedy. Caution is still advised within the suburb.


February 2006

  • February 24, 2006
Zombie players report that Ridleybank is again "almost completely in zombie hands",with no survivor groups able to claim a permanent position in the suburb. The situation closely resembles that of mid-December 2005, where those survivors still operating against the RRF were forced to rely on guerrilla attacks via free-running channels from neighboring suburbs.
  • February 22, 2006
After the Gingerbread Men and other human survivor groups seem to have been largely cleared out (and some of the GBM have moved on to become the Gingerbraaains) , Paradox stages an assault on the suburb.
  • February 18, 2006
The RRF believe that they have mostly cleared the suburb, and state that "only zombies and spirits currently patrol the streets in Ridleybank."
  • February 16, 2006
Reports are recieved of a group known as The Last Crusade entering the suburb. Their aims are stated as "to force out the Infidels and reclaim the holy land." Various groups have committed men to this operation, it currently numbers 20-25 Crusaders.
  • February 14, 2006
A majority of control is still claimed by the Gingerbread Men, an assertion contested by The Ridleybank Resistance Front. No clear signs of progess show for either side, as the RRF report that upon removal of the barricades, many of the EHB buildings are found empty, only for the barricades to return within hours.
  • February 5, 2006
The Gingerbread Men controversially invade Ridleybank, barricading every building to Extremely Heavily Barricaded. They go on to claim control of the suburb, renaming it as The Candyland.
This claim is strongly disputed by the still firmly established Ridleybank Resistance Front - who maintain that the GBM are breaking prior agreements in relation to the nature of the attack - specifically that the GBM are not staying within the suburb.

December 2005

  • December 23, 2005
Santa has brought an early present for the Ridleybank zombies as, for the first time in over a month, the balance of power in the suburb seems to favor the Dead.
According to the Cerberus Recon Squad, at the moment only about 10% of the buildings are under human control (Map). This contrast strongly with the recent situation in the region where, for instance, barricades reached an all-time high on December 5 when 50 out of 66 buildings were fortified. Therefore, for the time being, Ridleybank seems back into zombie claws but the future of the suburb as the "Land of the Dead" remain uncertain. - Carnivore
  • December 19, 2005
Petrosjko and many members of The Ridleybank Resistance Front travel one block south of Ridleybank to participate in the Stanstock! Protest Strike at Whetcombe Park after calling for a general strike saying that Enough is enough. Stanstock looks to become the biggest gathering of dead bodies ever to lie in Stanbury Village -- and perhaps all of Malton! Thousands of zombies and human survivors alike converge for peaceful protest, revelry, kumbarhahya'ing, and inactivity in Whetcombe Park. Speak Truth to Power, leave guns and whining at home, and Respect the fact that many of the bodies (formerly human or zombie) lying in Whetcombe Park have vowed never to stand up again until Zombies get a fair shake. In accordance with their agreement with the RRF of only killing and headshotting brain-rotted members of the RRF, the Gingerbread Men retreat from Ridleybank in order not to hurt the feral zombie population who are not going on strike.
  • December 14, 2005
As the zombie presence in Ridleybank increases, the death toll rises.
"Ridleybank is overrun, the northeast, northwest, and southeast quadrents contain at least one hundred zombies each. Southwest is a little better, but it's still nasty in there. Ridleybank is currently the most dangerous suberb in Malton. ...Abandon hope all ye who enter here..." - Crane 12:22, 14 Dec 2005 (GMT)
  • December 09, 2005
The Gingerbread Men's Ridleybank HQ (A Warehouse at [59,42]) is raided by the Ridleybank Resistance Front. Everyone inside is killed, including almost 60 Gingerbread Men.
  • December 01, 2005
The Ridleybank Resistance Front retreats from Caiger Mall, with new orders to return to Ridleybank in response to the arrival of The Gingerbread Men, the RLA and several other human groups who entered the suburb.
"As thieves in the night, the harmanz have assaulted our home while we were away. Unlike the Caigers, these scandalous cowards do not meet us in the field, and they deserve no honor, no justice, no mercy... Let us return to Ridleybank, our home, and let us kill them all." - Petrosjko - [13]
"The Ridleybank Liberation Army prepares its defenses and laughs at zombie presumptuousness." - Argus Blood of the the Ridleybank Liberation Army
"Ridleybank and vicinity have been completely overrun by zombies. Enter only if you have high AP." Axeman89 23:02, 8 Dec 2005 (GMT)


November 2005

  • Mid to Late November, 2005
With The Ridleybank Resistance Front largely occupied fighting survivors outside their home suburb, mostly at Caiger Mall, a movement to retake Ridleybank has formed. Enough survivors to make the suburb safe for habitation in spite of the few remaining zombies' best efforts moved in, and due to their extensive barricading the suburb is filled with safehouses and no longer particularly dangerous. However, most of the survivor forces responsible for the barricading do not expect to be able to hold once the RRF returns from Caiger Mall. More recently arrived and more organized survivor groups, most notably the outspoken Ridleybank Liberation Army, disagree and boldly trumpet their intention to hold Ridleybank against the returning RRF hordes.

October 2005

  • October 28th, 2005
