The NecroTech logo glows gently above the front desk, and doors open onto a number of brightly-lit laboratories and computer rooms.
The Raymond Building is a NecroTech facility located in the suburb of Shackleville. Though a faceless corporate structure to the uninitiated, this facility acts as the heart of R&D for NecroTech within the suburb. Staff at this building commonly revive zombies at nearby revive points. This facility is the only NecroTech facility to be found in the entire suburb, which in drastically increases its strategic value to local survivors. Members of project NecroWatch rennovated 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 Raymond Building feel certain that they can crack the mystery surrounding the spread of the virus as well as help monitor aberrant zombie activity within Shackleville.
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.
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 Raymond 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).
April 21st, 2010 -This is KillRoy reporting from Raymond Building 55,66. Although Necronet scans are severely outdated, the building currently has 5 zeds in front, as well as 12+ in surrounding areas. Lights are on but barricades are weak. Assistance is needed if we want to restore Shackleville.-
October 26th, 2009 - During the battle for Shackleville, raging during October 2009, the Raymond building is the constant center of attention for both zombies and survivors. Having fallen several times in the early days of the struggle, it was reclaimed quickly each time, and during the recent days, contant survivor attention managed to keep the building a safe haven for the survivors seeking to replenish the sorely needed needle stockpiles. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Grungni (talk • contribs) 08:13, 26 October 2009 (UTC).
1st january 2010 - The fire station is fine and under the watch of Blackhawk Nation. News older than one month should be moved here, newest one on top.
November 27th, 2007 - The building has been repaired and is currently powered.
October 31st, 2007 - The building has been broken into by zombies and ruined.
August 18th, 2007 - The building is empty of zombies and back to VHB. It needs a rez doc. Thank you MHB!
August 10th, 2007 - The building is unbarricaded, ransacked, and still has 2 zombies inside. The Raymond obviously needs a generator and some people to help restore it. It's the only one in this area, do we really want to lose it?
August 5th, 2007 - Six zeds locked inside. Due to attack, the building is VHB now.
