The Love Building is a small outlandishly painted and 1960s-era designed building located in the suburb of Pescodside notable for its funky exterior design. Inside the building's marble foyer, like in many of its other rooms, it is decorated in Leopard-skin furnishings, pink satin curtains, and internal doors reinforced in padded black leather. On both sides of the main entrance are 6-foot tall lava lamps and even when powered the lighting throughout the building is low and subtle. Candles adorn every surface and a juke box positioned next to the reception desk plays a selection Barry White songs.

The Love Building was once a failed biotech company called NecroLove whose goal was to develop a method by which dead loved ones, human or pet, could be revived. The process, codenamed "Project Eternal Love" met with failure after failure in the years that followed and eventually the company went bankrupt after investor funding dried up. Scientists at NecroLove associated blame not to their own work, but rather to corporate sabotage and headhunting as several scientists working on Project Eternal Love quit to instead work at NecroTech (at much higher salaries).

In 2001 the current owner, an ex-hippie and one-time museum curator Abram Dhurst, bought the derelict building and without renovating the complex managed to successfully turn it into residential apartments. The suites were massively popular, but unfortunately this popularity was short lived as only a few years the "Malton Incident" occurred. On several occasions the Groser Crescent PD were publicly known to be involved in a series of criminal investigations of the building, however after several years no charges were brought against the owner. Still rumors abounded of nefarious illegal connections between the Love Building and Groser Cresent PD, leading several federal agencies to eventually be called in. If not for the "Malton Incident" one wonders where the investigation might have led.

Noted NecroTech scientist, Caleb Usher, did visit the Love Building out of curiosity, but found the decor to be abhorrent to his personal taste. In his own words, "It was like someone fed Valentine's Day too much chocolate and it vomited all over the place. I'm not a big fan of pink... everything."

The Love Building is a PEACEFUL commune and welcomes all peoples, both living and dead, with open arms. Its inhabitants actively encourage a policy of free love. No "pulse" discrimination is made within the building's walls and both survivors and zombies alike are encouraged to "get along" in the best possible terms. If you have it, bring a bottle of wine or beer. Peace out man!

Barricade Policy

Despite the communes peaceful nature it actively recognizes that there are many "squares" are out there who are like, totally bogus man. For this reason 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

March 5th-10th, 2007 - The Grove stopped over at the Love Building during their stay in the suburb. Their opinion of the building was reported as, "Its decor may not be to our liking, but it's surely different...". After a short, but sweet, visit from a member of the Burchell Arms Regulars the group decided that the BAR's pub would be the perfect place for their next stop, and also to stock up on more booze again.

March 4th, 2007 - Man this place is freaking me out... the Grove is coming to Pescodside! Many new survivor groups have also joined them in their publicized "Tour of Malton". If any survivor groups in the suburb hear this, well, YOU GOT VISITORS!!! And new "not so old" art and music!

January 11th, 2007 - Peace out citizens of Malton! Despite all the totally bogus hatred going on in the most-heinous city, we hope that the Love Building will be a shining beacon for Zombie-survivor relations. If anyone can get them, "medicinal herbs" are available from any nearby Necrotech Building (just mix the red with the blue herbs). Bring them along with your favorite hot zombie and a bottle of beer and relax to some chillin' Barry White (so long as someone brings a generator and petrol).

January 6th, 2007 - Remember Wednesdays are Karaoke nights. We'll also have live bands playing classic Bob Marley and the end sequence of 2001 will be looping continuously in the downstairs theatre. Survivors are asked not to forget to bring their own munchies, that the phones don't work, and pizza/kebabs/beer CANNOT be delivered. Floor 6 will be caftans only.

April 17th, 2006 - It's only love that can take a human being and turn him inside out. Oh, and apparently so can zombies. No surprise then that the inhabitants of the Love Building were annihilated by the Dead Animals on this day.
