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

Christie's bust is a fine sight.

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

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

A bronze bust of Dame Alberta Christie, on a plinth.

History

Dame Alberta, reading The Stanbury Clarion.

The Christie Monument commemorates detective fiction author Alberta Christie, who stayed at Stanbury Village's Dann Hotel several times in the 50s and 60s, and used it as the basis for her Miss Marble novel, At Tristram's Hotel.
