Basic Info:

  • Office buildings owned by the company often associated with the zombie outbreak. From the outside, they are indistinguishable from other buildings, but characters with the NecroTech Employment skill are able to recognise them.
  • Among the internal descriptions found in NecroTech Buildings:
    The NecroTech logo is set in the wall behind the front desk, and doors open onto powered-down computer rooms and laboratories."
  • If a generator is running inside the building:
    "The NecroTech logo glows gently above the front desk, and doors open onto a number of brightly-lit laboratories and computer rooms."
  • NecroTech offices are tall enough for survivors to commit suicide from. They also provide a vantage point from which binoculars can be used.
  • Necrotech Buildings can be barricaded normally.

The Crampton Building is a NecroTech facility located in the suburb of Dunningwood It is one of three such NecroTech buildings in the suburb.

Noted NecroTech scientist, Caleb Usher, instructed the staff at the Crampton Building via radio communications on how to properly install their NecroNet tracking sensors. After confirming that the sensors had been successfully installed and calibrated properly he gave the operation a "thumbs up" before breaking communications. Since that day no one has seen, nor heard, from Caleb again. In the months, and years, following the "Malton Incident" survivors have done their best to make use of the resources abandoned by NecroTech Industries to help in their fight against the zombie hordes.

Members of project NecroWatch renovated the facility in recent months, as they installed sensor eyes for A.L.I.C.E. throughout the building and uploaded NecroNet 2.0 into the facility's system terminals.


NecroTech staff continue to follow directive 42-A, issued by the head office on January 19th 2006, with the activation and manufacture of MK-II revivification syringes. While the cost in time and effort are currently high the certainty provided by being able to manufacture a constant stream of syringes has mitigated early concerns.

The activation of NecroNet with all NecroTech buildings has also allowed scientists to apply the DNA tracking research they have gathered to date. The field research staff stationed at the Crampton Building feel certain that they can crack the mystery surrounding the spread of the virus as well as help monitor aberrant zombie activity within Dunningwood.

Barricade Policy

This building should be Extremely Heavily barricaded at all times. This is in accordance with the mutually agreed-upon Dunningwood Barricade Plan set forth by local survivor groups, who routinely work together to monitor that the barricades for this building are at the aforementioned level. This building is meant to serve as a safehouse for Malton's veteran survivors.

Survivors who find the building's barricades below their assigned level are asked to assist in raising them back up in order to help ensure the safety of all the survivors staying inside the building. Any survivor found lowering the barricades may be directly "put to the question" by any vigilante-minded survivor who catches the culprit in the act. If this happens the accused survivor must present a valid reason for their actions or be labeled a zombie spy/death cultist and be judged accordingly. So always be cautious lest you find yourself summarily executed for crimes against humanity.

NecroNet Reports

Zombie tracking reports are a free service provided by the NecroTech corporation to all its staff and local survivors in order to help facilitate quicker response times when managing zombie threats and to build a greater awareness of zombie migration patterns within the 9x9 block region around the Crampton Building. As a cautious reminder, only those zombies tagged with the DNA Extractor will appear on these scans, so actual numbers may vary when dealing with older zombies (i.e. Brain Rot).

Current Events

September 20th, 2009 - At least, one can assume some level of safety when there's only one zombie knocking on the door, a plaintive "Mrh?" coming from his decaying lips. When the NecroTechnician walked in the front door of the building, he realized things weren't as peaceful as they might seem. A little work, and he brought up the barricades to VSB, hopeful this would be sufficient to keep the other occupants safe at their lab benches and computer terminals. --BLusk 00:24, 20 September 2009 (BST)


News older than one month should be moved here, newest one on top.

May 16th, 2007 - Survivors have been in control for a while now, but zombies have been gathering in recent days. Non-dedicated defense by the survivors inside might lead to Crampton falling within the next few days. Anyone who hears this warning is encouraged to come and lend some strength to our numbers.

March 30th, 2007 - Zombies have taken over again, overruning the building's barricades and killing those inside. Help is needed if we are to reclaim the facility.

March 29th, 2007 - NecroNet researcher Nostradamuz cleared the building of all the zombies that were found wandering inside. He then proceeded to barricade the building. Since then he has looked for other survivors to assist him in the building's continued defense.
