Nice addition with the B.R.A.I.L. protocol. -Sarah tonin 07:10, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

The study group has been joined by a Ranger; reuniting the literate with a bastard. Everyone say 'Hullo' to Mr.Quickfoot, he had my back in a tight spot before... If you see him and me at Turpin Crescent, revive him first. I await hopeful that the recent addition of veterans is a trend which shall continue.
Bad news about the McCloud's Pub based in the Dalley library. The brave Pub, who'd been the recent target of PKers, fought wave after wave of zombies to defend the Library. Today they had a series of break-ins and had their defenses devistated. None of our interns were officially posted there, but we feel a kinship. If any of them pass through, give 'em a drink in the faculty lounge. Sir Fred of Etruria 00:58, 5 November

I'm using Firefox and it works just fine... that's really weird, I don't know what it could be.  :( --Sweetirony 12:06, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Does anyone else use Firefox? I know I've asked about this in the game, but i still can't figure it out. I can't seem to get my characters to move, they can search, attack, graff, do everything else proper,... actually I can even move around inside a mall, I just can't seem to move to adjacent squares. I've tried restarting, dumping cookies and the like, re-installing Firefox, and swearing quite a bit; nothing seems to work. Any ideas? -Sarah tonin 13:35, 2 November 2006 (UTC)
P.S. - Hello to Nathan and Marina, also our friends from the Pub *raises glass* Here's to a lit Roftwood.

Everyone welcome the visitors to our fine archives. We salute the courage of the Literate and boysterous Nathan Wild and the daring of the recently revivified Ridleytown defender, Marina. The brave Mr.Nathan should be added to our friends of the Quartly roster, while the death-defying Marina needs the special care of a powered revivification center. Sir Fred of Etruria 17:51, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

In Celebration of Halloween, the Pope ran into Ridley to visit Margery avenue our old hangout. The Pontiff performed the arts of ressurection upon two of the three sinners before seeking a safe and literate haven for the evening. 01:02, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

'Slaughter the dead to get you your book.', is that correct? Sorry if anyone has fallen due to lighting up the generator, it's just so hard to read at night without it and the Apoc have yet to stumble over it. I've been doing a lot of ingame talking in The Zombie Lexicon, it's fun and a challenge all literates should tackle. Anyone up for attempting a Rotter Revive in the Herbert? Why not? Im interested in the Apoc reaction. -Sarah tonin 01:49, 27 October 2006 (BST)

Sir Fred... you came up with it, shouldn't you know what it means?  ;P --Sweetirony 12:44, 25 October 2006 (BST)

With some input from a learned man I've come up with a new motto:
Caedes silenti etc impetro vos vestri libri. Does it mean what I think it does ? Sir Fred of Etruria 04:55, 25 October 2006 (BST)

The Pope has performed a daring rescue of the Good Doctor, but alas... the strain of administering the ressurection exhausted our aged pontiff. Tonight he sleeps outside, beneath the stars, like in the days before the apocalypse. Pope Corpse XVIII 05:32, 24 October 2006 (BST)

As of this morning the Quartly is back up,... for now. As are a few neighboring buildings,... depending on what time of day it is. Hooray for our strong core of Literates who stuck by and helped the Apocalypse Horde Slow Readers Group finish Michel Foucault's Madness and Civilization, just a 300 page paper back, but it seemed to take them months. I also say Pegton's hospitality is fantastic, let us not forget about the good people of the Pitneybank area also. SweetIrony, thanks for the needle, Operation Reference Desk would be a wash without everyones attention to B.R.H.a.R. -Sarah tonin 16:32, 22 October 2006 (BST)

Well, the Pegton branch of the Book-tour is doing well, but one question... can we get an easier to understand motto ? Seriously, it is a bitch to translate. As always, the interns need some FAKs and I've got the syringes. See you on Turpin Crescent 22 October Sir Fred of Etruria

It seems as though there is quite a few dedicated literate undead in Roftwood, they have heard the good word and formed the 'Apocalypse Horde Slow Readers Group'. After trying to entertain the group with some organized banter in the Quartly Library, i was brutally attacked and killed by some non-descript first level zeds with no sense of humor. What's a woman to do? ... I also am in support of a safer place to prepare my lectures to the Apoc SLG. -Sarah tonin 00:49, 20 October 2006 (BST)

I've been striving to clean up our old revive point at Turpin Crescent, but damn the Apocalot seems to have disclosed our gameplan on the Roftwood site. I'll try to rescue those left in our home suburb, but I advise a safer place to read. Perchance the Macaulay Library.

An offer

I come from a group that deeply values education and knowledge, as well as priortizing libraries for barricading. If you're interested in some sort of alliance, or formal agreement of peace, contact me for details.--Leo417 05:11, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

I was reading the c4nt archives and found this little link. It took me back... Sir Fred

I would like to thank darwins beagle for the revive. The Irish Templars always remember those that help our members in need. We have heard of the troubles you have had in Roftwood and have mobilzed a few of our members in to Roftwood to help. The Irish Templars find your cause worthy and offer our help to you. Anytime you are in need let us know and we will help. --Ropes McGurk of Irish Templars 08:45, 12 November 2006

Hey, Sarah tonin, about the problem you're having with UDToolbar and Firefox, take a look at this post for some assistance. -- Running scared 22:13, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

I think it's great idea of yours to contact the groups of Roftwood, and we would love to help get Roftwood back. Most of the Apocalypse Horde is in the mall, and the surrounding buildings. They're going out into the suburb every day and destroying buildings that get barricaded overnight. Reviving will be the key to victory, so securing the Herbert Building is a great plan. I think we should also try to secure Rawlins Row Police Dept[68, 56]. Our HQ at Neil Cinema has been holding well, because no one has really tried to destroy it because no one knows it's there. It might make a good rally point in Roftwood before we take back the Herbert building. I'll send my other account over to the libraries in Ridleybank to figure a better plan with you all. See you there! --TsakaH of RKER 23:52, 13 September 2006 (BST)

Im so glad to hear that your group is trying to retake the mall our group has been trying to do that for about a fortnight now with very limited success. Of course we will help reclaim the mall our base is in the wooton building and we have taken the NT building beside it but our area is becoming increasingly dangerous so we may decide to stay in your safehouse soon Blazefire 06:33, 22 September 2006 (BST)

Revives in Ridley

I heard that one of your fellows (Pope something?) found poor YRC operative 'Darrien Creek' in Ridleybank and helped him return his rather overdue copy of Grey's Anatomy. Thanks! The savvy folks from C4NT will need our field agent's help...and I could use that book now that he's finally returned it! --MorthBabid 18:02, 15 August 2006 (BST)

You guys wouldn't happen to have anyone operating in the Ridleybank area, would you? We're probably going to have some casualties on our hands soon- and everyone knows how much members of the Channel 4 News Team love a leather bound book. Why, we've even been tanning zombie hides, of late. --Ron Burgundy 00:46, 16 August 2006 (BST)

A good thing going...

You all have a good thing going here...I'm somewhat dismayed to see that you have yet to aquire any reference books on cooking or explosives...both would come in handy. Perhaps once you recover your footing me and one of your more lexically inclinded members can have a punning contest on our fourm PadreRomero 00:28, 24 September 2006 (BST)

Cracky Gets In A Pissfight

the other day I was hunting down someone who had shot me in the middle of my own base for no reason and I noticed that he had joined your group CRACKY MCSPARECHANGE EXPLAIN YOURSELF NOW YOU DO NOT WANT TO MEET ME DOWN A DARK ALLY AND BELIEVE ME IVE BEEN WATCHING YOU. this is just to let you know that if he doesnt have a danm good explanation I will shoot him. Nothing against your group --Blazefire 07:50, 3 September 2006 (BST)

  • Cracky is an Intern and is currently trying to mend his bookburning ways. If you have proof of his wrongs (i.e. a screenshot) and send it to the e-mail address, no one will fault you for taking revenge, blood for blood is only proper. The Head Librarian believes in second chances and so do we, however we do not support bookburning. Please accept our apologies on his behalf. --Doctor Fallout 14:27, 3 September 2006 (BST)

If he contacts me personally and apologises then I might let him off. If he doesn't.....Well Ill try not to get blood on your books. I dont have a screenshot but would two witnesses be considered proof? Blazefire 06:48, 4 September 2006 (BST)

  • Email, screenshots, proof ? These things are mythical in a zombie apocalypse. Vengeance is fine, just don't kill us all because of some Canadian. Sir Fred of Etruria
  • I am just a humble librarian; I have never taken up arms against my fellow man. We are all stuck in this god aweful mess together, why fight amongst ourselves? I would like to thank my good friends at QSG for their support on this matter, all those of course except Sir Fred. It is clear to me he knows nothing of loyalty to his comrades. I have heard of a "Crackie McSparechange" who has been known to murder people in their sleep. You have most likely mistaken me for that brute. You don't need to appologize, no harm done.Cracky McSparechange

I added you to my contacts at the time and I havnt seen you since. There is no mistake it was you alright I just went back and checked the spelling. Joining the hobos guild wont protect you either I noticed you changed your group on your profile. I cant waste time killing you now when my suburb and group are in trouble but be aware our special ops will be after you Blazefire 08:24, 10 September 2006 (BST) EDIT: the hobos guild doesn't exist ive checked and double checked to make sure there was no mistake. For Killing a member of the VDO and lying to the leader of the VDO I sentence you to execution Blazefire 08:28, 10 September 2006 (BST)
☃Blazy, Blazy, Blazy… Where to begin? 1st off, I never killed you. 2nd, I’ll kill you again if I see you. 3rd, Have a nice day.Cracky McSparechange

It's On

As of 9-15-06 the Hobo's Guild declares war on the QSG. All QSG members will be shot on sight. You can thank Sir Fred the Fearful for this.Cracky McSparechangeHOBO
To the QSG the hobos guild seems to have it in for the both of us now. I think we should work together. On behalf of the VDO I would like to offer an allegence Blazefire 10:22, 16 September 2006 (BST)
That's okay with us. His library card was revoked when we caught him filing the books in the Stuart Library with the hated Dewey Decimal System instead of the vastly superior Library of Congress System. The Head Librarian has instructed all Librarians and Interns to collect his Overdue Book Fees with extreme prejudice. --Doctor Fallout 15:05, 16 September 2006 (BST)


It figures that you would finally add something at the same time I was in the middle of making some major formatting changes. Plus, go to the refence desk and crack open a Strunk & White, or at least a dictionary. --Doctor Fallout 18:38, 19 August 2006 (BST)
Good show Librarian D.Fallout. It looks very fine and educational. We need to discuss troop rotation, distributed safe-houses, and what high-lighter color is official for the Quartly Study Group: lime-green or dayglo-yellow. --Sir Fred of Etruria 19 August 2006
The feared enemies of literacy, the Ridleybank Resistance Front are returning to Ridleybank from the horde activity. The Apocalypse Horde is destroying generators and slaughtering Literates as they sleep. As the Library is in the path of the storm, we need to send some interns to a safe library with our rare book collection. --Sir Fred of Etruria 21 August 2006
The Horde seems to like printing on the Roftwood page that the mall is about to fall, they've printed it several times this week alone. What a bunch of wankers.
Dale is of the opinion that the vault will keep the Tomes of Forbidden Knowledge safe from the rotters, so no need to send any of the books to the backup safehouse. He feels that if Librarian W. Clinton and I stay, we three plus Schef should be able to hold the fort. He's trying to recruit somebody else to aid in the Literacy campaign, too.


Weak,... but i know what you mean. To a lazy, meatshield pile of zed on the Mall who just seem to make sure they're standing, our resistance can do little. ...*sigh* ... The last few days i've been at Nichols Mall and it seems to be under fairly heavy attack by zed and the apoc, but is necessary for the Ridleybank fight, so there is significant action everyday, if it falls so does the blackmore... Perhaps a show of QSG wit/banter/kills and revives may stir up some support,... or at least amusement, ...and another shot at a sense of unease.Sarah tonin 07:23, 23 September 2006 (BST)

That's just Mummy Mum Muggy. He's a good mummy. I think we'll have to wait until the A-Horde jerkasses get bored with Hildebrand to retake it. In the meantime, Dale is going to be staying at Quartly, while I'm going to set up a base at the Stuart Library as an alternate home for us, closer to Nichols. I'll expect at least two other members of the Group to stay with me there for the time being. In the meantime, I'm trying to figure out the actual roster for the group. According to the stats page, we have 14 members, and I'm pretty sure I have a more or less complete list, but it doesn't include Oki. Please, please, please send an email to the official account (linked from the main page) so I can actually do a full census and start work on the yearbook. Speaking of which, when is Sir Fred going to send me those pictures he's promised. --Doctor Fallout 15:40, 23 September 2006 (BST)


Welcome to the wild world of Literary adventures. We appreciate all new members, please grab a DNA scanner and a dictionary, it's gonna be a bumpy ride.

  • My friends, join me in welcoming SweetIrony to the Library
  • And starting off in the traditional QSG way, does anyone have a syringe for SweetIrony ? Sir Fred of Etruria 05:18, 16 October 2006 (BST)
  • I'll be there in the morning- Sarah tonin 05:12, 17 October 2006 (BST)
  • Hello everyone! I've been thinking about how cool this group is since I first met Sir Fred, and I am very happy to have been allowed to join. You others should consider coming onto the NMC forum; it's a great place full of classy literates and quite an effective way to communicate. --Sweetirony 21:25, 20 October 2006 (BST)
