Description

The Jewell Museum is a Contemporary Art museum located in the suburb of Pescodside. It is dedicated to maintaining the history of one of the worlds most glorious professional athletes. Once called the "greatest thing ever to hit British sports since Henry V made practicing the longbow compulsory" by the Sunday Times; Paul Jewell is the centerpiece for this historical museum which looks at the life and times of a professional footballer in the modern world. It hosts exhibits from Bradord City, which includes the famous Benito Carbone section, Liverpool, and Wigan, but focuses primarily on the man behind the myth.

Noted NecroTech scientist, Caleb Usher, has never visited the Jewell Museum. Even so, controversy stirs around comments Caleb may or may not have made about the validity of sports in a world where science is king. When tracked down and forced into a corner from which he could not slip by us, he turned on the offensive stating: "How do you people keep finding me!? What? Paul who? Look, unless this Paul fellow invented a retro-virus for the zombie epidemic or improved the syringe manufacturing process, I'm just not interested. Good day."

Building History

Paul Jewell was a much loved man in the city of Malton before the outbreak, with tens of thousands of people regularly attending the "International Jewell Parade" which was held every year at Huddlestone Square on the September 28th. It was due to this soaring popularity that the Jewell Museum was built in 1999 and which eventually led to the centerpiece of the exhibit, a 19-foot tall gold and diamond encrusted statue of Jewell as depicted from his Bradford City days. The statue was shipped to Malton from Tibet, where it had been smelted and worked by blind monks. Unfortunately the insanely expensive statue and its subsequent shipping from Tibet completely bankrupted the annual funding provided by the Malton city council to Pescodside. Not soon after the incompetent city councilor responsible for the debacle was fired and a subsequent delay was placed on the opening date for the new museum did rumors begin to fly as to the museum's possible permanent closure in favor of a better, or at least cheaper, building dedicated to fellow footballer Chris Kamara.

It was only several months in 2000 that the new local city councilor stepped forward to deny these claims, stating that, "No plans currently exist to shutdown the museum and it will remain in place for so long as football remains the most popular sport in Wigan". Newspapers commented on the odd nature of the councilor’s comment, and speculated conspiracy theories over exactly how much sway Wigan held over Pescodside's councilor. Of course these theories were dismissed when days later after the statement was released the museum was closed to the public with no plans to reopen in sight.

Barricade Policy

This building should be Extremely Heavily barricaded at all times. This is in accordance with the mutually agreed-upon Pescodside Barricade Plan set forth by local survivor groups and the Dulston Alliance, 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 member of the Dulston Alliance or a 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.

Current Events

August 19th, 2006 - A member of the Philosophe Knights visited the museum on a fact finding mission in order to catalog the Jewell Museum's collection. After completing their task the survivor moved on to Malton's other museums.

January 27th, 2006 - The building lies in disrepair. Inside the main hall the solid gold statue of Paul Jewell still stands with his arms open wide, however someone has put a pair of underpants over his head. Several burst sewage lines also seem to have flooded the ground floor.
