From The Urban Dead Wiki
Please note that the Randoms are not affiliated with The No Random Revive Policy, although we do abide by it
The Randoms are a Buttonville-based group of helpful, jovial and (dare we say) incredibly attractive survivors. While questionably effective as a tactical team, we've built a reputation of at least being tremendously entertaining to our foes.
They were formed by Cheeseman Muncher, former head of the Malton Cheese Shops Union (before it went into liquidation just before the outbreak).
History of the Randoms
Note: This History is a dramatization.
Buttonville, South West Malton. It was a cruel, harsh, unforgiving suburb. Then suddenly out of the mist to the East...ran a man carrying a bright yellow lunchbox, a golden badge gleaming in the sun. He was Cheeseman Muncher and he was here to save Buttonville from its fate.
Our philosophy and rules in a nutshell:
1. We are a survivor group aimed at helping others in need.
2. We are focused on keeping Urban Dead fun for everyone who plays. We don't take ourselves too seriously, and we avoid any appearance of being "trenchy."
3. We do our best to respect our enemies and friends alike. We like chatting it up with zombies and PKers, as long as they keep the hostility in-game.
4. We do not PK unless collecting bounties.
5. We do not spy in enemy forums.
6. We do not allow zergers, or known alt-abusers. Randoms can only have one character in Buttonville/Williamsville or any suburb where the group is currently active.
7. We don't combat revive (ie, revive a hostile or potentially hostile zombie instead of shooting it).
8. Pimp hat or no revive.
Fed up with all the serious business survivor groups that are springing up right now? Want to have a laugh instead of running around packing 20 odd shotguns and having a set of itchy army fatigues as your uniform? Then come join the Randoms! No only do we discourage trenchy behaviour, we also have an unlimited supply of free cheese! And we're also amazingly cool. Seriously, we are. And incredibly attractive too.
We accept all pro-survivor applications to the group (no PKers, griefers, etc.). Beginners are especially welcome. Several of our members started at level 1 and some of those members are now squad leaders. (In fact, some might argue that ALL of our members started at level 1.)
The Randoms have no squad structure as such, though there are a plenty religious cults, fascist sects and mad real estate gangs within the group to pledge your alliegiance to.
If you want to join go to our forums and after registering post in our join forum, including your profile link, name and location in-game.
For many years, all members of The Randoms have been provided with glorious refreshment in the form of Orange Julius. Well, apart from that time Delta seceded and we cut off their supply so they got scurvy and died.
The Randoms are the proud owners of the one and only pulp mobile and enjoy its wonders frequently along with doughnuts and far too much candy.
Posers may believe they have Orange Julius in their malls but we know the truth!

24th July-07: Again faced with the world-weary Militant Order of Barhah, The Randoms launch a public-service effort called Operation Sleepy Weasel. The goal is to help our zombie friends alleviate their grumpiness by getting more rest. Preferably out in the street.

10th September-07: The Randoms have found themselves in a heated (albeit quite entertaining) battle with the Ridleybank Resistance Front, including the group's diabolical and pantsless Gore Corps. Intrepid survivors continue to warn the zombie horde of impending doom -- from the FUTURE!
17th September-07: LUE has taken Buttonville, but The Randoms pledge to keep a firm grip on their manbagz. In other news, the Gore Corps reportedly has moved on after a lengthy donnybrook enjoyed by both sides.
19th September-07: LUE moves on; Randoms continue altercations with feral hangers-on for several days with relation to manbagz ownership, but insist in their deluded claim that they "frightened off" the invasion.
29th September through 5th October-07: Delta Squad rises up to avenge some imagined slight against Dudemeister, attacking so-called "heretics" in Echo Squad, egged on by frenzied rhetoric spewed from the frothing mouth of the zealot Krae. Violence spills into most of the other squads to greater or lesser extents before uncontested victory is claimed by all sides.
17th October-07: An elite team of Randoms is rushing around the Bash-thrashed suburbs of Galbraith Hills and Cockridge Heights. They were last seen armed with hammers, FAKs and foul language.

27 January 08: After Buttonville was beaten back to its normal green self after a few days, the Randoms went to aid the DRRP in Danversbank. A few stayed behind to guard the monastaric landscape we call home.
24 February 08: Delta Cult officially secedes from The Randoms and becomes the Soviet Empire of Delta Sector.
25 February 08 - 30 June 08: Various things happen. However, we were feeling lazy and didn't bother updating the wiki. So what we did shall remain a mystery. To be honest, I don't think that we remember...either way, news shall be updated soon. I think.
1 July 08: The Randoms invade Darvell Heights in Operation Picnic Liberation.
12 July 08: Delta Cult rejoins the Randoms.
15th Oct 2008: With unbridled optimism the Randoms boldy plan a tour of Malton which is to begin in Scarletwood.
19th Nov 2008: After a month of unbridled chaos, the expeditionary force is forced to retreat back to Buttonville never having gotten out of Scarletwood due to the Westward marching horde we ran smack into there.
20th Nov 2008: Operation Honey Toast strives to keep order in Buttonville and Williamsville in the face of a large zombie assault.
3rd January 2009: In our first proper news thingy in about 10 months, Operation Jolly Lights 2008 is a roaring success with virtually every building in the Butt decked out in trees and lights. Merry New Yearmas from the Randoms!!
Also operation Ghostly Grigg is forging new paths in the barren wasteland of Grigg Heights. This evolved into Operation Crooke All Inn.
February 2009: Operation Alien Probe is a success with many members of the M.O.B. forcibly probed and cataloged. Also, Echo is invited to a party in foxtrot
15th May 2009: Exactly 6 months have passed since Shinosa left us. To honour his passing, an open casket funeral will be held at Griffiths Park in Buttonville today. All Randoms, their allies, their enemies (except the CPM because they smell bad) and Buttonvillains alike are welcome to come pay their respects to the legend that is the Sage.
11th August 2009: The Randoms emerge from the chrysalis of change a beautiful butterfly!! (Albeit a very drunk and confused one.) Changes include the abolishment of geographical squads and we got rid of a lot of useless ranks and stuff too. Expect to see surges of cultish and/or just plain weird behaviour in the near future.
June 2010: Big Bash came to visit but unfortunately we all died too fast to really get started on Operation MAKIN' BACON. We shall now inflict this arousing yet disturbing operation upon the various ferals still hanging around, and then continue being really lazy. Or possibly start some more fights with each other instead.
13th September 2010: Someone has been impersonating Randoms members on the radio being racist and generally a dick. We do not advocate dickery and would appreciate any information about who's doing this so we can beat the crap out of them with sporting equipment.
