The Wraiths/Archive

This is the Group Archive for old information pertaining to The Wraiths. We needed to put this stuff here because our main group page was getting ridiculously cluttered.

February 2006 - The Wraiths are formed at the beginning of the month, and around February 10th enter Roachtown and set up a temporary headquarters. The group stages regular raids into Ridleybank from here, serving as long-range tactical support for The Gingerbread Men during Operation Candyland. The Wraiths successfully infiltrated the Ridleybank Resistance Front as part of their end of the operation.

March 2006 - With Ridleybank back in zombie hands for the time being, and many of the Wraiths' Gingerbread allies turning zed, The Wraiths move on, heading east at first and winding up, through sheer blind luck more than anything else, at Tynte Mall during the RRF's siege. The Wraiths lost fully half their number in what turned out to be their first major defeat, and quickly withdrew to Randallbank to regroup (helping to put down a minor zombie attack on a hospital during their stay there, which worked to get the unit's morale back up to appropriate levels). The Wraiths then split into three tactical teams, deploying to Tollyton, Millen Hills and Ketchelbank simultaneously.

April 2006 - Since our operations during the month of April are still ongoing, we're not at liberty to discuss some of them in detail here. However, here's a brief overview of what's happened so far:

The Wraiths' tac team in Ketchelbank -- the largest team the group has ever fielded -- splits in half, with one team staying in the north to keep an eye on things around the City Zoo, and the other moving south to stage guerrilla raids into Barrville.

The Millen Hills team also splits, sending two Wraith operatives into the besieged suburb of Yagoton to aid the survivors under attack by The Shining Ones there. This turns out to be the worst defeat The Wraiths have ever suffered, resulting in the loss of all the Yagoton team's members. Ops in Millen Hills continue as normal, with the exception of a slightly increased focus on covert operations that, for obvious reasons, won't be discussed in detail here.

The Zoo task force is present for an assault on the Zoo and neighboring Necrotech Building by the Eastonwood Ferals. The losses of our Medic and science officer hindered Wraith operations in the area, but they still killed many zombies in the effort to reclaim the Zoo. Now that the team is fully operational again, we expect it will only be a matter of time before the Zoo standoff ends in a survivor victory. The Wraiths are working very closely with The Malton Zookeepers to drive off the horde.

May 2006 - May has seen very little change so far from last month... Millen Hills is still relatively safe from zombies but has several human threats that need to be dealt with, and the standoff at the Zoo is still ongoing.

June 2006 - With the Zoo relatively safe now, and no notable increase in activity in Millen Hills, the Wraiths have expanded into Brooke Hills and Yagoton, and have increased their focus on black ops (specifically, targeting the RRF zerg/spy group Malton DEA).

July 2006 - The Wraiths have gone on the move again, extending their operations into Shearbank as well as sending aid to Barrville. This is partly due to the human efforts to reclaim those suburbs, and partly due to a decision that mobility is in our best interest after recent encounters with PKers.

August 2006 - The Wraiths expand again, sending a tac team to Rhodenbank, which will help defend the suburb when The Big Bash inevitably comes knocking. The Barrville and Shearbank teams saw action in Ridleybank in August, helping to reclaim and barricade the suburb and making friends of our former enemies, The Knights of the Temple of the Shrike. All Wraith allies are instructed not to attack KTS members, as they have proven to be a tremendous help in Ridleybank.

September 2006 - After getting our asses handed to us in Ridleybank and Rhodenbank, the Wraiths went right back into the fight against the zombies by dispatching a team to Santlerville. We are currently helping to hold Dowdney Mall against the Bash, and trying to keep our mechanic's solvent out of the coffee. Other Wraith teams are still active in Barrville (helping our new allies The Rebellion) and Ketchelbank (helping seed the suburb with traps for the Bash -- if only we could lay mines).

October 2006 - After losing our entire team at Dowdney Mall (it may have been the coffee rather than the zeds), the Wraiths move on yet again, implementing Operation Rebel Stand, an ongoing effort to aid forces of The Rebellion in Barrville.

October update: The Wraiths still have some zombie operatives in Barrville, but the high level of zed activity has caused us to pull our living agents out. In other news, efforts to reclaim Ketchelbank from the Bash are underway, and the Wraiths are participating in order to give ourselves a staging area for the 5th of November. Operatives have also been sent to Caiger Mall to assist in the siege there, and Yagoton (the Bash's next projected target) to implement the ultra-top-secret Operation Screeching Cat Running In Front Of The Camera.

November 2006: The Wraiths enter Ridleybank November 2nd to lay the groundwork for the 5th of November. By November 5th, there are more than 10 Wraith operatives in the suburb, although nearly half of these are zombies. Currently (as of November 6th), three Wraiths remain alive in Ridleybank, and are helping several other groups hold almost every building in the suburb. The Wraiths have contributed more than 20 zombie kills to the campaign.

Elsewhere, The Wraiths were attacked by PKers during The Halloween Hootenanny of Horror... members of the PKer groups involved, The Junkyard Bandits and A More Sinister Clan, should be killed on sight. Codename V isn't the only one who knows how to hold a vendetta.

December 2006: After Ridleybank fell back into survivor hands, all of The Wraiths' human operatives were pulled out, leaving only the zombies who are embedded with the RRF. The Wraiths' leader has chosen to go zed for the duration of the continuing operations in Ridleybank, acting like the famous spy he's named after. A running battle in northern Brooke Hills with several dozen feral zombies ended up in the enemy's favor when the Eastonwood Ferals and a small contingent from Shacknews intervened on the zombies' behalf. However, the defeat allowed us to insert an undercover operative into the EF. In the besieged suburb of Yagoton, Operation Screeching Cat Running In Front Of The Camera had its intended effect of surprising the hell out of the zombies. Survivors quickly reclaimed the southern portion of the suburb as the enemy lost unit cohesion, but the north is still contested heavily to this day. In other news, a small Wraith force was present at the siege of Stickling Mall, which lasted as long as it did partly due to our persistent healing and barricading efforts. All Wraiths involved in the siege have since been revived and reassigned as needed.

January 2007: The Wraiths have recently expanded into the northeast (Dulston) and south central (Hollomstown) areas of the city. We are currently in the process of prepping and fortifying Treweeke Mall for what we view as an inevitable visit from Mall Tour '07. Speaking of the Mall Tour, The Wraiths are currently in a pitched battle with them at the siege of Bale Mall in Yagoton. The Eastonwood Ferals have put in an appearance, so it should be interesting. January's been busy in other areas as well... we're preparing for a top-secret mission in Ridleybank, and are also still busily defending Zootown (Ketchelbank, Brooke Hills and Richmond Hills). In our brand-new southern outpost, we're working on strengthening diplomatic relations with our newest allies, Independent Malton Militia, and are hoping to pitch in with the defense of Theophan General Hospital ASAP.

As of January 24th, the cease-fire order is lifted for members of Knights of the Temple of the Shrike. Since they've reverted back to their old PKing, English-butchering ways, they once again have targets on their backs. Members of Wraith tac teams in Ketchelbank, Brooke Hills, Yagoton, and Shearbank (all suburbs where these griefers have been sighted) are advised to kill KTS members on sight.

February 2007: This promises to be a busy month for The Wraiths. Plans are underway for a top-secret mission in mid-February, and in the meantime The Wraiths are on Safari with Malton Tours Inc. in Ketchelbank, competing to see how many Knights of the Temple of the Shrike we can kill. We are also busy establishing our new radio channel, 27.69.

February 12, 2007: The Wraiths are pulling out of Dulston in response to ungrateful residents of the suburb killing our operatives who were trying to rid Treweeke Mall of PKers. We have better things to do than get PKed by people who don't know enough to mind their own business, and are therefore leaving the residents of Dulston to their own devices. Mall Tour '07, feel free to make Treweeke your next target and eliminate some scum from the surface of the gene pool.

April 2007: The Wraiths mysteriously disappeared from the city of Malton this month. Nobody knows what happened to them, but they were gone for a full three years before returning with greater numbers and new tricks.

April 2010

After a prolonged and mysterious (of course it's mysterious, we're the Wraiths!) absence from Malton, Wraith operatives are starting to pop back up. These include some new faces, as well as whatever old operatives we could dredge up from the depths. It's unclear what the Wraiths are up to at this point (naturally), but unsubstantiated reports suggest that they are once again converging on the City Zoo.

Also, the Wraiths' Radio frequency has changed. Wraith Radio, once we get a kriffing transmitter up anyway, is now on 27.22 MHZ.

Update: The radio transmitter is up now, and The Wraiths are broadcasting. Well, sort of. Since most of the group's information is relayed privately via private messages on the forum or Mobile Phone messages in-game, we don't use the radio feature as much as less paranoid groups do.

April 16, 2010: The Wraiths are now in Yagoton as well, and have launched Operation Extreme Prejudice there. The operation's goal is to kill ToTalk, the griefer and suspected zerger, so many times that he finally leaves the suburb. We are willing to collaborate with other groups on this op, and will be awarding a prize -- to be specified later -- to whoever kills ToTalk the most times.

April 21, 2010: The Wraiths deploy to Shackleville for the first time in history to deliver aid to The Malton Zookeepers in their time of need.

May 2010

May 1st, 2010: The Wraith occupations of Yagoton and Shackleville continue, with a pitched battle against zombies in eastern Shackleville and a still-ongoing PKer/GKer threat in Yagoton. A new team is also en route to Nixbank. Talk of a more secret operation in another suburb has occurred, but nothing has been done about it yet. Wraith operatives in Ketchelbank have had little to do except make radio broadcasts so far.

May 5th, 2010: Wraith operatives in Ketchelbank woke up dead thanks to a joint attack by two zombie groups -- The Dead Bunnies in the north near the City Zoo, and the RRF further south. We do not know at this point how closely coordinated -- or allied -- the two groups are; intelligence analysts are currently working on answering this question for us. At any rate, the Ketchelbank team can't complain of boredom anymore now that only one of them is alive. Happy kriffing Cinco de Mayo, I guess.

May 7th, 2010: Plans are now officially underway for an in-game Star Wars convention. If you would like to host it, please let us know. Otherwise, we'll pick a random hotel from a random Wraith-occupied suburb.

May 19th, 2010: The Wraiths are still actively involved in the standoff in Shackleville, a suburb which seems to be largely in survivor hands one day and then mostly in zombie hands the next. Neither side appears to actually be winning at the moment, but we're having quite a bit of fun harassing the zeds there nonetheless, and our lower-level members are gaining experience like crazy.

In Yagoton, a mass assault by the RRF's Gore Corps has caused many RRF members to be added to Operation Extreme Prejudice. Our oldest enemies appear to have gotten a lot more interesting since our last encounter with them.

May 23, 2010: Despite what it says on his profile, bev4pf is NOT a Wraith. He is, in fact, a known PKer and one of our primary targets in Operation Extreme Prejudice. Any attempt to remove this from our Wiki page will be reported as vandalism and met with banning.

May 31st, 2010: It appears we've chased the Gore Corps out of Yagoton. Though they came on strong at first, they were actually quite easily defeated. :P

Survivors appear to be gaining the upper hand in Shackleville as well, possibly due to the recent discovery by our group of the most powerful weapon in the game... the newspaper.

Ketchelbank and Nixbank are still fairly quiet. If you can call The Malton Zookeepers "quiet"... somehow the word doesn't seem to fit them.

June 2010

June 3rd, 2010: The Wraiths successfully defended Ryley Road Police Department in Brooke Hills from a surprisingly organized group of ferals (but not those ferals). It turned out to be a fairly lopsided victory in the survivors' favor, with The Wraiths accounting for four kills -- one by flare gun -- all by ourselves, so as long as the zeds don't regroup and storm the building again we're going to be getting drunk off our asses in celebration over the next few days.

In other news, Nixbank has finally gotten dangerous and Shackleville has finally gotten at least reasonably quiet. Yagoton is still a wretched hive of scum and villainy. Except for our allies, of course. They're good people.

June 5th, 2010: After an attack on a close Wraith ally by suspected zerger Alevins5, The Wraiths have officially declared war on Chocolate Thunder. For the moment this is an extension of the larger Operation Extreme Prejudice, but may become its own operation if the enemy proves to be better at fighting than they are at coming up with original names for alts.

Also, if anyone wants to make a template for Operation Extreme Prejudice then we'd be eternally grateful. We have no artistic skills of our own. Plus, we're lazy bastards.

August 2010

Some shit happened. We vaguely remember moving into Galbraith Hills, and we don't want to talk about what happened at Fort Creedy. We really need to not take the summer off anymore, because we're still recovering from our hangovers in...

January 2011

The war with Chocolate Thunder continues unabated. It has been a painful, but worthwhile victory... as long as their attention is on us, they don't have the AP to grief others.

We have also made diplomatic contact with the Galbraith Hills Police Department, who we hope to establish a strong alliance with. Operations in other areas continue as normal, with the exception of the City Zoo which became a hot zone early in the month as the Militant Order of Barhah passed through and ate everything in sight. Yagoton is now a contested suburb, presumably due to the MOB moving north, and we are among many survivor groups digging in and defending the area. Our team reports that the fact they're killing zeds instead of PKers is a refreshing change, and that they are enthusiastic about their chances.

January 22nd, 2011: The battle in Yagoton rages on, but it's looking pretty good for the survivors right now. The Wraiths haven't sustained a casualty in weeks. Efforts to reclaim the Zoo are also looking promising, though there's still more zed activity in Brooke Hills and Ketchelbank than we're used to seeing there.

In other news, we are now members of the New Malton Colossus. Here's hoping we don't embarrass them.

January 28, 2011: Our first operation with the New Malton Colossus was successful, and our mobile unit is now restocking for their next adventure.

In the north, a concerted effort has been made by Wraith operatives to reclaim Bale Mall and the surrounding buildings, with much early success but still enough zed activity to consider the area contested.

Increased PKer activity in Nixbank has led our team there to form a black ops division, and we are now actively hunting the suburb's known griefers.

February 2011

The Wraiths are planning to launch the 1st Annual Malton Star Wars Convention sometime in March. Updates can be found here or on our forum, keep an eye out. We are also on a recruitment drive, with an eye toward getting as many Star Wars canon characters, droids and creatures as possible on our team as well as generally shoring up our roster in areas where we have less operatives than others.

The battle for Bale Mall and surrounding buildings continues in northern Yagoton, with Operation Extreme Prejudice abandoned entirely until the zed threat is put down (or until Chocolate Thunder comes after us again, whichever comes first).

We're also moving operatives into Roftwood and Pimbank to assist our newest allies, the Local Roftwood Defense Complex. So far, all we've done in the new suburbs is heal and barricade... but this close to the RRF's territory, things will likely be very exciting for us there.

Ketchelbank is relatively safe, with the exception of some very persistent zeds trying to break into The Lion Enclosure. Maybe they're furries or something.

Our team in Galbraith Hills reports no change... buildings in their area are still changing hands with extreme randomness, and at least one member of the team needs revived each week.

Shackleville is mostly clear, but too close to the RRF's preferred stomping ground to really call safe.

March 2011

March 3rd, 2011: The battle for Bale Mall continues in northern Yagoton. Our task force there reports that currently all Wraiths in the area are operational, with nobody in need of revivification... however, as I write this three corners of the mall are ruined.

The persistent group of feral zombies attacking The Lion Enclosure got some unexpected help from the Feral Undead and the RRF, leading to the deaths of some of our team in the Zoo theater. Our other people in the area are working on getting the task force back up and running.

The South Central theater is still fairly quiet, with most of the zed activity in Central Malton further north of Shackleville and Tollyton. Joint ops with the Local Roftwood Defense Complex have been an unqualified success, and The Wraiths have entered into an alliance with them in order to better defend the northern border of the South Central Theater and give us a couple of suburbs along the Ridleybank border from which we can harass the RRF at our leisure. Petro's mom has made a resurgence in popularity among graffiti artists in Ridleybank... The Wraiths can neither confirm nor deny responsibility for this.

Our team in Nixbank reports very little zed activity in the area, and even the PKer activity has stopped.

The Mobile Commando Unit has now run four successful operations with the New Malton Colossus, and is currently in the middle of their fifth op.

March 24, 2011: All is quiet once again in Yagoton. Very quiet, since not only has the siege of Bale Mall ended, Chocolate Thunder appears to be well on its way to historical group status as well.

Nixbank and its surrounding suburbs got owned by the Militant Order of Barhah, although two Wraiths managed to survive the attack and get the other members of the team back up and running. Reclamation efforts are currently underway.

The First Annual Malton Star Wars Convention will kick off on April 4th in southern Brooke Hills just outside the limits of the City Zoo. Stay tuned for more information, but for now get your characters down to either The Joce Building, Wiles Cinema or The Lion Enclosure.

The Wraiths' work with the New Malton Colossus has taken us back into Ridleybank, where we're having a lot of fun reliving old times. The RRF are back on the offensive now after the initial surprise of our move into their territory wore off, but we hope to be able to claim a victory by the time we've moved on.

April 2011

April 2nd, 2011: Due to the hostile actions of a certain Ira Kaplan in Galbraith Hills, The Wraiths are now at Defcon 3 and preparing for war with the Caiger Mall Survivors. We'd appreciate an apology from you guys, and we'd also appreciate it if you took your Dual Nature Policy and shoved it up your asses.

In Brooke Hills, preparations for the Star Wars convention continue unabated despite increased RRF activity in nearby suburbs like Roachtown and Ketchelbank, leading some Wraiths to believe that the RRF might try to attack the convention in retaliation for The Wraiths' part in the NMC's reclamation of Ridleybank last month.

The Wraiths' team in Nixbank sent an expeditionary force south to extend reclamation efforts into Foulkes Village, in an effort to prevent any of our neighboring suburbs in the area from being colored red on the map. Cleanup operations are still ongoing.

The 5th of November

The Wraiths plan to participate in the raid on Ridleybank in November, and will show our support for the campaign by displaying the template on our group page.
