St. John's Church (Gatcombeton)

St. John's Church was built in the early 1900's, a pristine example of gothic architecture. For years, however, it maintained only a small congregation from the surrounding area, until the Zombie Outbreak. The military forces used St. John's as a temporary hospital for the quarantining of infected individuals, and it was no uncommon sight to see the mutilated bodies of numerous Zombies strung up from the church's bell tower by the soldiers defending it.

However, shortly afterwards, a military helicopter arrived to evacuate the military and medical personnel, leaving St. John's at the mercy of the rampaging Zombie hordes. Reverend Jan Payne remained inside St. John's to take care of the sick until the church's massive doors were at last broken open. Some of the trembling wounded made their way to the altar, where they were protected by others who had managed to acquire firearms left behind by the retreating military.

In the bloodbath that followed, all of the brave Survivors were massacred, and Rev. Payne vanished, some say into a secret passageway behind the altar, where he could escape a gruesome death at the hands of the attacking undead.

Today, the church has been fortified and barricaded by groups of passing Survivors; while the Zombies occasionally break through again and repeat the St. John's Massacre of 2005. Years of battle have not been kind to its previously-impressive interior, and despite the efforts of Survivors to repair it enough to hold up as a safe house, much of its pristine architecture has been severely damaged, and the floors are now choked with rubble, debris, and bloody corpses.
