Basic Info:

  • A monument is a city block containing a statue or similar piece of public art, without a building in it. It is functionally equivalent to a street, except that players with the Tagging skill can gain 2 XP for writing graffiti on a monument.
  • This is, game-play wise, an empty block, and cannot be barricaded.
  • After the July 3, 2009 update, some monuments became tall and can be seen from a distance with binoculars

Description

Humans and zombies alike will see the following (permanent) description when standing in front of the monument:

"You are at the Armastrong Monument, a white marble statue of a 19th century figure surrounded by grass."

The statue.

The monument consists of a large marble statue, surrounded by grass that for some reason still is both short and green five years after the Malton Incident.

History

The statue was erected in 1822 in memory of Sir Henry Armastrong, founder of the famous Armastrong noble family. He was knighted in 1818 by King George III for his services to the Crown, which consisted of pointing out to the king that his socks were inside out.

Sir Armastrong would spend the rest of his life in shame, as he perceived himself unworthy of such a title.
