The NecroTech logo glows gently above the front desk, and doors open onto a number of brightly-lit laboratories and computer rooms.
The Sealey Building is a NecroTech facility located in the suburb of Scarletwood. Though a faceless corporate structure to the uninitiated, this facility acts as the heart of R&D for NecroTech within the suburb. Founded in 1801, the Sealey Institute has been home to some of the greatest scientific minds in the history of Malton. Some of the distinguished researchers who have been a part of the Institute (and the years during which they did thier work here) include Albert J. Malton (1801-1822), Victor Von Frakenstien (1818-1824), Henry Jekyll (1886-1887), Emmett Lathrop Brown (1965-1978), Michael Hfuhruhurr (1983-1989) and Liam Degen (1990-2007). The institute was founded in Honor of Archimedes, whose ideals the institute holds dear and whose endeavors we strive to continue. His bust can be seen prominently displayed on the landing of the first stairwell in the Great Hall, it was a gift from the Dutchess of York in 1942.
During World War I and II, the Sealey Institute was recognized for its efforts in thrawting the evils of the Nazi regime through science. Many influential inventions of that era originated here and were used by the Allies in their campaign against fascism. To honor the memory of these brave scientists, the Institute has endowed a fellowship for researchers whose projects show promise of futhering the pursuit of democracy in the world. Then in 1990, the Institute joined forces with the global corporation NecroTech. Working under the umbrella of NecroTech has allowed access to many resources, both financial and otherwise, that would otherwise have been unavailable even to such a prestigous institution as Sealey. We are therefore grateful to NecroTech for their continued support even in times of crisis, and we look forward to a long and prosperous relationship in spite of the mistakes that have been made.
The Institute continues to be home to promising research from all across Malton, although atmittedly the Intitute's global impact has been diminished by the current crisis. Due to the Intitute's inability to make contact with the outside world, they are able to send and recieve information on a local scale only. This has not dampened their efforts, however, to drive the edge of human knowledge forward; they continue to strive for excellence in all areas of science. Since the Outbreak, scientists at the Sealey Institute have redoubled thier efforts to determine the cause and nature of this terrible affliction. Great strides have been made- most notably the development of the Mark III revivification syringe and the recent discovery of Zombie Dementia. The Institute continues to work to make life better for everyone! The Sealey Institute welcomes all medical researchers interested in furthering thier scientific endeavors. Those at the institute have a special arrangement for visiting physicians through the League of Malton Physicians
This facility is one of three NecroTech facilities found in the suburb. Members of project NecroWatch renovated 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 Sealey Building feel certain that they can crack the mystery surrounding the spread of the virus as well as help monitor aberrant zombie activity within Scarletwood.
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 Sealey 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).
July 9th, 2007 - The Sealey Building is currently barricaded to EHB. --Vigoda 16:16, 9 July 2007 (MST)
Unknown Date - The following was found recently in the basement archives of the Sealey Building. It is written in some ancient, and as yet undecipherable text- yet we believe it is the original building dedication. We have posted it here as a matter of public record.
'This point is one of the many necrotech buildings, i suggest that zombies who want to be be revived and don't have brain rot should come on over and wait at the cemetery to the north of the building.'
