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

The Dwyer Monument

Description

The 'Doves of Peace'.

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

"You are at the Dwyer Monument, an abstract concrete sculpture at the top of a low flight of steps."

History

A much-loved local landmark, the monument appears abstract at first glance but actually incorporates the figures of birds, with the sky appearing through.

'Buffy' Dwyer.

The Monument commemorates local war hero Egbert 'Buffy' Dwyer, who flew a fighter plane built at the local factories (the Fyfhyde Flyer Mk I) and became the first Battle of the Atlantic fighter ace from Malton. Dwyer dedicated the rest of his life to the causes of peace and pipe-smoking, and died in his beloved home village just a short walk from where the Monument now stands.
