Basic Info:

  • A monument is a city block containing a statue or similar piece of public art, without a building in it. It is functionally equivalent to a street, except that players with the Tagging skill can gain 2 XP for writing graffiti on a monument.
  • This is, game-play wise, an empty block, and cannot be barricaded.
  • After the July 3, 2009 update, some monuments became tall and can be seen from a distance with binoculars

Humans and zombies alike will see the following (permanent) description when standing in front of the monument:

"You are at the Rendell Monument, a metal statue of a soldier plastered with quarantine posters."

The Rendell Monument is composed of several metal human figures that together serve as a monument located in the suburb of Rhodenbank. Known also as the "Famine Monument" the statues depict one of the great strifes facing the world. The artist, whose name no one can seem to remember, had originally been commissioned to create a monument to tribute Governor Edward G. Rendell, Pennsylvania's 45th governor, but when the statues arrived and were welded in place it became obvious that either something had been miscommunicated or the artist had simply ignored the city councilor's request altogether. As no one could seem to get in touch with the artist and the monument had been paid for in advance the city was reluctant to discard it. In the end the monument was still named the Rendell Monument, but the original tribute was kept quiet for fear of offending the Pennsylvanian governor.

Of course leaving the significance of the monument's disturbing context aside, survivors are left wondering the obvious question: Who was the artist who created the monument and why pay an unknown artist in advance? Why indeed. While the entire notion itself transcends any sane line of thought a survivor has only to visit the other monuments located throughout the suburb to witness a general theme to them all... one of madness.
