Those Dudes Credo
Those Dudes are without remorse
Those Dudes are generally against PK’ing (with notable exceptions)
Those Dudes are here to chew bubblegum and kick ass, and they’re all out of bubblegum
Those Dudes revive the undead
Those Dudes like a good joke
Those Dudes are literate and support the cause of literacy
Those Dudes carry guns
Those Dudes actually help barricade
Alts – Yes, alts are ok. (Please see Policies and Supports re: zerging, and don’t think it’s ok to house all your alts in the same burb, or building or whatever. I mean really, I’m still pretty new at this and I know better. Also note there are search and to-hit penalties assessed when guys are too close, so you're really screwing yourself.)
Those Dudes came into being when a tour bus of young professionals who were on their way to a Pantera reunion concert took a wrong turn and found themselves stranded in Malton almost a year after the outbreak. After trying to backtrack they discovered that the Malton perimeter had been repaired and the road was simply gone. They drove about the suburbs in their bus until it suddenly caught fire. Strangely enough, the bus appeared to have been almost entirely constructed by hippie tree huggers using recycled paper bags, cardboard and flash paper (which could have been a mistake in hindsight), and it literally burned to a pile of ashes in a matter of seconds. Rushing from the scene and the crowd of undead the burning bus was attracting, Those Dudes were scattered about the Malton Suburbs and lost contact with each other.
Being like-minded they quickly became informally known as Those Dudes. The typical usage went something like this, “Oh yeah, I’ve seen one of those dudes. Those dudes are assholes!”
Having become informally known as Those Dudes they slowly re-established contact with each other via mobile phone and tagging messages for each other they agreed that their informal group should formally adopt the name “Those Dudes”.
Since the formation of Those Dudes, additional like-minded, members have joined the group and are welcomed to participate in some of Those Dudes fun filled activities.

July 5th - - Big thank you to OfficerRuby for killing PKer slug02 inside Plummer Arms after slug PKed me with no provocation or justification. A tip of my hat to you, good sir. --Lurchy McGee 01:45, 6 July 2007 (BST)
- You're very welcome Lurchy, but it would be "miss" not "sir". :) --Ruby Tuesday 02:40, 10 July 2007 (BST)
July 15th - - DrZh, in living form, shot up the McZeds. SuzieLee was dumped outside and now can't get back in until revived. CommuneChris, Brandon Irons, and Howard Kimball were outside as well. There may be Todders inside now, either living or undead. Beware. Don't go back in until you can take care of them all. --Ruby Tuesday 21:52, 16 July 2007 (BST)
July 17th - -
Vinetown Hoards have taken over Vinetown and surrounding suburbs. Rotters are taking up space in Revive Points and disabling NT facilities. Malls are being targeted as well.
Mornington Those Dudes members in Mornington have teamed up with The Abandoned Warriors and their allies against PKer groups The End and Brotherhood of the Reckoning. slug02, member of The End, PKed Lurchy McGee (see news from 7-5) inside The Plummer Arms. When Lurchy was revenged, slug02 took it upon himself to name us and TAW as official targets. And since The End is allied with BotR, they're both after us. Members of both groups are now considered to be on the Black List, but its only necessary to engage them within Mornington. If you're elsewhere, we don't want you getting mixed up in their CRAP if you don't need to. --Ruby Tuesday 06:54, 18 July 2007 (BST)
August 4th - - Not a lot of updating around here. Thats because we're all talking over here That Board! All members of Those Dudes are welcome, as well as any current or prospective allies. You can see our public areas, but you must register and make your case to our moderator/owner Mrite to get the password(s) for our privileged areas. --Ruby Tuesday 09:33, 4 August 2007 (BST)
September 7th - - All discussion from non-dudes has been moved to the Talk Page. Please refrain from using this page for chit chat. Thanks! -Management
Where can I find Those Dudes?
Those Dudes are encouraged to include their locations on this page
Those Dudes tend to be widely distributed. Those Dudes are often found in resource buildings looting the gun stores and reading 18th century french poetry.
8 Bucks is the proprietor of the Vinetown McZeds franchise in the historic The Tynte Building (Vinetown). If he's not in the building remodeling or catering to his guests, he's actively scouring the area looking for those special touches that set the Vinetown McZeds apart from the average greasy spoon. Stop by and say "hi". Stay and have a bite of the tastiest zeds that money can buy.
SuzieLee is originally from Pescoside, but quickly became bored with that dump. She's joined the clean up crew at Vinetown McZeds. She likes it there, especially since the Bhore Monument next door is a RP.
This group accepts quality people of all skill levels, with the exception of serial Pkers, Gkers, and (of course), despicable Zed Spies.
1.Drop by our forum and register.
2. PUT your UD/PROFILE ID in the Recruiting Office Board, under NEW RECRUITS. Tell us what area you are in, and if you are applying for a certain position (see below). If you are low level or not particular about what you’d like to do in the group, just put ANY as your position.
3. After you’re cleared (we do a minor background check to make sure you are not listed in the DEM’s Rogue Gallery). It's not so much that we care about what you may have done in the past, but having a current bounty or bounties on your character can be a HUGE HASSLE to yourself and the group. Then, put “Those Dudes” (minus the quotation marks of course) in the “Group:” section of your profile.
PRIORITY VACANCIES to FILL!
Medics and Reviver's:
1. Medics should at least have, First Aide, Diagnosis, and Free Running to be effective at this position.
2. Career Reviver's should have, Necro Tech Employment, Lab Experience, NecroNet Access (not so much for syringe manufacturing or map scans, but rather the more important benefit of being able to revive a rotter with this skill), and Free Running, because most NT’s are heavily barricaded.
Probably the least glamorous and most overlooked position on the skill tree, yet vital to the maintenance and revitalization of our suburbs.
Construction Specialist, should have Free Running, Construction (of course), and be willing to tote a tool-box, carry generators and fuel, and maintain barricades. Construction Specialist also drink free at the Plummer Arms ;-)
Hit Squad/Combat Specialist:
When considering placement in either of these units you should at least have the basic survivor skills such as, Free Running, at least one (preferably both) of the weapons skills (Pistol Training, Shot Gun Training), Hand to Hand Combat(with Knife Combat and Axe Proficiency) is a nice bonus as is Diagnosis and Construction. In fact the more skilled you are, the better your chances of success in these fields.
Coordination for ALL our members will be done in the secure area of the forum, in our chat-room, or on our soon to be available irc channel.
Low Level Survivors:
Yes indeed, there is a place for you. In fact there is no better way to learn the game and level-up, than to be a member of an active group.
Low Level Survivors will be stationed outside (but near) the hot areas and will be given all the benefits of the more skilled members of the group by having access to the secure areas of the forum, the board chat-room, and the future irc channel. Plus, you become a part of our mentorship program, which allows you to XP Farm off of willing members (Mentors), in order to gain XP, and propel you up the skill tree.
