Discussion of the RESCUE! Proposal

Hello, my name is Morgan Blair, a member of M.E.R.C.Y.. While we are currently serving The Bhore Monument revive point, I have suggested to my superior that we (M.E.R.C.Y.) ratify the use of the RESCUE! proposal in Vinetown.

In brief, adoption of this proposal would modify the UBP so as to designate all Churches to be left unbarricaded, with the interior to be used as the revive point. This serves a number of functions: having the undead come inside to wait for revives would keep those coming to their aid (as well as the newly living) out of sight from random passers-by, would prevent zombies waiting to be revived from hearing the lure of other zombies groaning in the distance, and would allow both revivers revived immediate "entry" via Free Running. The reason for using Churches (or in Vinetown's case, the Cathedral, is that they have no doors, and are not considered to be a tactical resource point.

However, M.E.R.C.Y. is sensitive to the possibility that the religious community may find this proposal undesirable, or that a historic preservation society might be similarly opposed, and we wish to communicate with all parties with specific interests in this location, before making any attempt to implement new policy which would consequently impact those interests. So please, if you have any comments, critique, or constructive criticism to contribute, it would be appreciated. Respectfully, --Morgan Blair 14:53, 26 August 2007 (BST)

Sister Rita, here. I'd like to support my colleague's comments here with some current information regarding the use of indoor Revive Points in the wake of the new ruin update. Short version: indoor revive points still save AP and are a viable option. Also, from a travel and support standpoint, St. John's is only 4 blocks away from the Maver NT in neighboring important consideration as Vinetown itself has no NT's. --Sister Rita 03:12, 28 August 2007 (BST)
I would be hesitant about using a Cathedral as an "indoor revive point" in any circumstances, but the current situation in Vinetown and throughout Malton absolutely forbids it. LUE decimated Vinetown in (what was then) record time. The Bhore Monument, which is where all of our efforts should constantly be directed, was so far past carrying capacity that many survivors (including myself) waited for nearly a month! I spent the last few days hanging around Bhore before being revivified by Sister Rita--but not before being killed again! While St John's might eventually make for an ideal location to test out the RESCUE! plan in Vinetown, I suggest we get the rest of our house in order. If M.E.R.C.Y. stays around for more than a few fortnights that could be a feasible goal. --Issachar 11:00, 28 July 2007 (EDT)
All I can add is that I was just PKed inside St. John's. The queue at the Bhore Monument is currently 24z, of which I'm unfortunately one. While I was inside St. John's, a zed attacked me first, but a human finished me off. That could've happened at an outdoor point, I admit, but having them indoors means one less bldg. available for survivors to sleep in. With the new rules, that's very important.

Small Changes

New pic, new history section for even more flavor. Issachar 01:13, 25 June 2007 (EDT)

Put up a pic for more flavor. Issachar 05:44, 24 June 2007 (EDT)

This page was pretty pitiful and disorganized, so I took the liberty of filling a few simple things in, and I also reorganized the history section to be uniform and more easy to read and follow. I'm no wiki expert, so if I've messed something up terribly feel free to yell at me. :) Though I doubt anyone can complain. It's pretty deserted here. Echo echo echo echo...
