The Hambidge Building
You are standing outside the Hambidge Building, a large white-stone building riddled with bullet holes. You recognise it as being owned by NecroTech. The building's doors have been left wide open, and you can see that the interior of the building has been ruined.

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 Hambidge Building is a NecroTech facility located in the suburb of Molebank. Though a faceless corporate structure to the uninitiated, this facility acts as back-up for any primary research projects within the suburb. It's because of this that the Hambidge Building is considered a satellite station of the more impressive Barstow Building. Prior to the outbreak, the Hambidge was built in an effort to provide additional staff who would take on some of lesser research projects that the staff at the Barstow Lab did not want to waste their time on. Not long into its operation the Hambidge Building jokingly became known as the "Rubbish Bin" by staff from the Barstow Lab and ever since then animosity has existed between NecroTech staff at both buildings. This facility is one of six NecroTech facilities found in the suburb. Staff at this building commonly revive zombies at nearby revive points.

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 Hambidge Building feel certain that they can crack the mystery surrounding the spread of the virus as well as help monitor aberrant zombie activity within Molebank.

Barricade Policy

This building should be Extremely Heavily (EH) barricaded at all times. This is in accordance with the barricade plans set forth by local survivors, who routinely monitor the barricade level for this building. This building is meant to serve as a safehouse for Malton's veteran survivors, and thus requires the Free Running skill to be properly utilized. 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 survivors present at that time. 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.

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 Hambidge 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).

Sept 2nd, 2009 - Building seems deserted but it was secured and powered and seemed to be operational. Kind of spooky being the only living soul in this building.

May 24th, 2007 - The building is EHB and powered.
