Regarding the next Mall Tour.. I was gravely disapointed to find that just as my Zed character reached the vaguely respectable level 10.. The Mall Tour was just coming to an end.. The second, plans come around for the new wave of destruction to cover the malls of Malton, let us all know!! Awaiting the next plague spreading adventure..

Caigar Mall and ZOMBAGEDDON

Welcome Pilgrims! Your pilgrimage across Malton has been inspirational and have turned many sinners into the Chosen of God. Your vision to create a new promised land out of the four suburbs around Caiger Mall is truly the will of our Lord and savory savior. I am current preaching at the warehouse above the North East Corner (it is a mall entry point and the barricades are only very strong, about 40 sinners inside), I invite you to come to a sermon and partake in the divine sacrament of the flesh and blood of the Son of Man, and perform the Holy cranium cleansing rituals on the heathens who have foolishly spurned the mercy of Sweet Zombie Jesus. --Jack-Swithun 18:00, 29 Jan 2006 (GMT)

The light of the lord is now shining straight through multiple bullet wounds in the late Mr. Swithun. Let me know if you get revived, we can do it again. --Zaruthustra 21:27, 1 Feb 2006 (GMT)

Is this really smart? I mean, you guys have a hard enough time defending one ridleybank. This will just spread your already outnumbered tour among an area and drive any remaining holdouts to the sweet bossom of our fortress. Or perhaps you just didn't feel up to the task? You'd probably be better off mounting the final attack while you still have an interested and cohesive horde. --Zaruthustra 20:22, 30 Jan 2006 (GMT)

Ars Requiem welcomes you to our humble home of East Becktown. Feel free to use our Local Dining Map to find the best dining spots. We'll be doing our part to keep the cuisine fresh, confused and unsuspecting. Enjoy your stay! --John Ember 22:39, 30 Jan 2006 (GMT)

That's a nice map there! - Serpico

Perhaps the rot has liquified the collective spine of the mall tour? Or maybe this is a cunning strategy to bore the Caiger Mall defense team into submission? We're all still there while you mince around East Becktown breaking into nearly abandoned pubs. Your tactic of attacking every building except the one that we're staying in is befuddling to say the least. Perhaps you could let me in on the logic behind spreading out your forces and stalling your attack until everybody gets bored and goes home. --Zaruthustra 21:25, 1 Feb 2006 (GMT)

This is the Mall Tour, not 'Make The Harmanz Happy Tour'. We'll do what we want, and when we want. To be honest, I couldn't give a damn about survivors being bored or not. I was bored last time I was here, and so were the rest of The Scourge, The RRF, The MotA, The CotR, and the Ferals that camped outside Caigers doors for two weeks.

This is our payback for last time, and if we don't take your mall, we'll take everything in the 4 suburbs around it, and you can carry on sitting there as the bodies stack up outside. --Xyu 15:31, 3 Feb 2006 (GMT)

Your mini-tracker is out-dated. The NT building two blocks south is back in fleshy hands. :P --TheTeeHeeMonster 17:35, 4 Feb 2006 (GMT)

Truly, history will remember the glorious day zombie kind took... well.. you know... that library five blocks away from the mall? --Zaruthustra 20:49, 5 Feb 2006 (GMT)

That library five blocks from the mall? More like the entire 4 'burb area, that's 396 blocks. Even if the mall doesn't fall, how can you be proud you defended 4 blocks and lost nearly 400? It's like the king who hides in his castle whilst his entire country is raised to the ground. -BauulBen 14:31, 6 Feb 2006 (GMT)

I won't stop you. Its just not that cool. All those survivors will be up again in a week, and we'll just fan out and reoccupy as soon as you leave. Since theres no win condition, all these battles are about are bragging rights basically. Can a mob of 200 zombies crack pub after pub and wipe them? Yea, but who cares? --Zaruthustra 17:17, 6 Feb 2006 (GMT)

Thing is, we ain't goin' nowhere. We're here to stay. You seem to think we're here as a stop on the tour. We're not- we're here as conquerors, and like all conquered populations, you have only assimilation to look forward to. Norton 18:32, 9 Feb 2006 (GMT)

I consider every tasty brain I eat a "win." If you're so indifferent, why don't you step outside the mall for a spell? >:) --John Ember 17:39, 6 Feb 2006 (GMT)

I frequently do. I take merry jaunts around the pagram library area stabbing ex-people in the face with syringes. Jolly good fun that. As for sticking around? Well I guess you'll just have to be quicker on your stiff feet. --Zaruthustra 17:51, 6 Feb 2006 (GMT)

Combat Revives seem pretty pointless to me, especially when you've got Ankle Grab and a mob of a few hundred zombies next door willing to kill you again. You're basically just giving us more tasty brains. --Bob the Mediocre 22:22, 6 Feb 2006 (GMT)
You know, if they're outside I'm fairly sure it's not a combat revive. For all you know they could want one. I don't get you zombies. On one hand, you call every revive that isn't at a designated point a "combat revive" and on the other you whine about how the revive points are stupid and out of genre. --TheTeeHeeMonster 02:05, 9 Feb 2006 (GMT)
I'm not whining. I may not have been clear, but I agree with the guy down in the Brain Rot section who called it a "valid, if dumb" idea. I just don't see the use. --Bob the Mediocre 19:14, 11 Feb 2006 (GMT)

The Zmobageddon area map is off by one column on the left side in comparison to the mini-tracker. Velkrin 08:46, 10 Feb 2006 (GMT)

The area map has a box exactly 5 walking spaces from the mall. The number 5 was most likely picked because a char could wake up, spend 5 AP walking to an NT building, spend 40 AP making needles, then 5 more to walk back to the mall, in a single few minutes online. (all assuming that there's a fueled generator in the building) More than 5 blocks, and the char will be sleeping outside the mall for at least an hour; definitely not something to be pondered lightly. The radius of travel-ability shrinks to 4 squares if the building is not equipped with a running genny. So, the area map is marked right, it's the mini-tracker that is off by a row of blocks - Serpico 02:58, 14 Feb 2006 (GMT)

Has Caiger fallen yet? It has been forever already. As I live in other parts of Malton, I think it is great that so many zombies are located in one burb that is not mine. Stay as long as you like. But I am hoping Caiger does fall, because the last thing we need is more whiney zombies getting more new skills thay don't need. -SomeGuy 2:25am 24 Feb 2006

Better coordination

Especially with Pagram Library! The other day we breached it but only a handful of zombies entered before it was barricaded again. Those that entered were in turn slaughtered I believe. (Got killed only a few minutes in). Around 500 zombies have been trying to breach it for the past week and they haven't been sucessful. What's wrong with this picture?

My guess is that survivors never sleep there, but come over from the mall to barricade it in shifts or something. I was inside briefly a few days ago, and there weren't more than 20 people in there. Probably less, my memory isn't that good as a zombie. Anyway, it's a clever tactic, and since it's well coordinated, the zombies will need to be equally well coordinated. Perhaps spraypainting attack times a few hours in advance and telling zombies to save ap for then would help? --Bob the Mediocre 21:09, 13 Feb 2006 (GMT)

The ZMOBAGEDDON Mini-Tracker

The ZMOBAGEDDON Mini-Tracker on this page is inaccurate, I'm afraid. At least of this date. At least two buildings I checked out marked as conquered on the map are in fact solidly occupied by survivors. --Brasswatchman 03:33, 13 Feb 2006 (GMT)

Yep, I've been wandering around and haven't found a single building occupied by zombies yet. The mini-tracker should be taken with a pinch of salt. --PeteDotNu 23:40, 15 Feb 2006 (GMT)
Make that six. --Brasswatchman 01:35, 17 Feb 2006 (GMT)

The Mini-Tracker just shows what we've cleaned out at least once, not if it remained that way. We don't have nearly enough intel coming in to tell us which have been reoccupied. -- Revolutionist 20:20, 17 February 2006 (GMT)

To be honest, I think the Mini-Tracker is pretty much pure fiction at this point, and I don't think it serves any purpose. I scouted 20+ buildings yesterday, and every single one was barricaded and occupied by survivors. Many had power. Only one had a zombie in it. (And it really was one zombie. And it was a revive point.) Arthur Cottle 23:41, 22 February 2006 (GMT)

Upper Left Corner

Hey Zmobies. As some of you might have noticed, we have a little subgroup of the CMS. It's the Upper Left Corner. We're all in the Upper Left Corner of Caigar Mall having a pretty darn good time. Well today, a big group of zmobies broke through our defenses and chilled with us in that corner. That made me realize something. The Upper Left Corner has been exclusive to humans thus far. It's obvious that there are some zmobies out there who want to have a fun time in that corner too. Well now we're opening up our door to you (at least figuratively). Feel free to join the fun and sign up for a royal appointment on our wiki page: Upper_Left_Corner. After all, there is both an outside and an inside to the Upper Left Corner! It's where the action's at. - Queep 03:45, 14 Feb 2006 (GMT)

Dispassionate Appeal from a fallen Calvert Mall Defender

Give this guy a fucking medal, he's a good sport. MaulMachine 17:11, 21 February 2006 (GMT)

Good job, zmobies!

From a Caiger Mall defender - you've really been picking up the pace the last couple of days. I keep missing all of your raids, but one of these days... still, good to see you getting your game together. I like a good fight. --Brasswatchman 21:17, 23 February 2006 (GMT)

I must agree, when I heard you got 80 zombies in last night, I was damn proud. Queep 14:13, 26 February 2006 (GMT)

I'd like to offer my congratulations to all the zmobies who made life so exciting for us survivors these past months. You undead scum are really impressive. Otona 14:42, 22 March 2006 (GMT-8)

Hey all I feel alittle weird posting here but Shaft struck my groups pages as well. WHat did you guys do about him? nice song by the wayJeff Oneil 01:11, 2 March 2006 (GMT)

Jaunting Music Suggestions

Not being a member of the tour, I don't feel right editing the main wiki page. However, might I suggest the HorrorPops Walk Like A Zombie as an additional song? — g026r 22:45, 3 March 2006 (GMT)

Strategy Suggestion

I have an idea and i have no idea if it would work, but consider it. All of you attack an area and die. Keep getting more and more zeds killed in the one area until a massive pile of dead bodies are in one or two same spaces. Meanwhile, co-ordinate a time for all of you to rise at once. When that time comes, you all rise with 49 AP (if with Ankle Grab) and take the place. Just an idea. What do you think? - Anon

Been done, Anon, during the last siege. I'd like to suggest a strategy that doesn't involve the Tour killing me off when I'm outside reciting goth poetry. I'm just trying to give you guys a little culture, you know? And we have TONS of goth poetry books in the bookstore in the Mall that scream, "READ ME TO TEH ZMOBIES!" Can't you guys wait for me to finish?!?! McClaud 05:18, 10 March 2006 (GMT)

  • It's the material... not even the zeds can tolerate bad goth poetry. Really, they'd be much happier if you drag out the projector and share some of the Zombie Giraffe Porn. --Reverend Loki 04:37, 13 March 2006 (GMT)
  • Yeah, it probably was the material. My bad. McClaud 08:45, 22 March 2006 (GMT)

Perfect idea. Leave the Mall. Let them Claim victory. Then, pull a 180, and eat them while they are weak. Take Ciager. Then stay inside. Don't Leave. Kill any Barracades. They can have any mall. JUST NOT CIAGER!!! 343 08:29, 17 March 2006 (GMT)

  • Like I said before, they tried that during the first siege. I don't think many of the Caiger Mall people are going to leave the area. They already claimed disbanding, and I still count over 1,500 in the Mall. You are still welcome to try, but I'm not leaving anytime soon. McClaud 08:45, 22 March 2006 (GMT)


Do you guys give up yet? --Brasswatchman 01:50, 21 March 2006 (GMT)

Correcting page post-Tour-dissolution

I felt safe in editing the NPOV paragraph to a more neutral and historical tone (it was technically supposed to be like that anyway), but I'm not sure what to do about the group box and things like possibly removing the "current groups" catagory. Xyu? Throc? --Sindai 14:47, 21 March 2006 (GMT)

Go for it. As far as I can see, the best thing to do is to leave the page pretty much as it is - a snapshot of the tour as it ended preceded by a discussion of the tour from a neutral POV.--Throctukes 03:06, 4 April 2006 (BST)

Well done, Zmobies.

Well done, zmobies. It truly was a magnificent fight. Godspeed, you princes of Malton, you kings of Undeath. --Brasswatchman 05:12, 23 March 2006 (GMT)

CMS-Meta would like to salute the members of the Mall Tour for a well fought battle. Hope we can have a rematch next year, when the time comes for the Mall Tour '07 to be born. --Coco 19:42, 23 March 2006 (GMT)

As a member of the Upper Left Corner, I'd like to thank the Tour for getting all the survivors in one place so my collegues and I could entertain them between zombie break-ins. I'd say we both won for having such a good time. Thanks. -- McClaud 08:28, 24 March 2006 (GMT)

the main page...

did u ever notice the majority of the page is in the present tence, in other words as if its still happening. doesn't that seem odd for a dissolved group? i thinbk we shoudl fix just a bit so that it dosnt seem active with a historical template.--cody6 21:58, 27 October 2006 (BST)
