February 2010

23rd February No Humans here at the moment, 5 Zombies.

20th February Team America decided to take a field trip and wanted to ride on some mall escalators so they headed down from Roftwood to take in the fun of Woodroffe Mall. However after entering the mall proper they made a most startling discovery, the survivors have been selling pants. The zombies immediately concluded that this was part of an anti-American conspiracy and have launched a boycott against the mall, the survivors have countered that these claims are nothing more then rambling from dead, rotten idiots. -- Papa Jadkor (RRF) (MotA) (MT11) 18:46, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

15th February Mall is safe, there is currently at least one mob attacking surrounding buildings but the mall proper is under control of the survivors.--Mishimagoodness 18:14, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

October 2009

21st October Nothing's going on inside the mall. All four corners EHBed and lighted, although NE corner is low on fuel. Saw zed hordes in Wray Height were seeping through 2-3 blocks north into Tollyton on my way here though, so keep alert people. --Ouchness! 6:58, 21 October 2009 (BST)

September 2009

December 2008

10 December Mall has been retaken few days ago by joint forces of The Fortress and USAI. All corners lit and the area around slowly creeping back to life. --Snakeingrass 11:50, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

October 2008

24 October Everyone's dead, but there's only a couple of zombies. One corner isn't ransacked.

21 October I just went by the mall, about 11 zeds now inside. I didn't want to check inside as I was getting low on AP, but I didn't see anyone actually "living" inside. outlaw2448

20 October Mall is currently rebuilding rather slowly, one zed still inside with about 8 survivors. At least one corner VSB others unknown. Mall's slow rebuild could be due to the rather long revive wait in the area.--Miltwan 00:40, 21 October 2008 (PST)

12 October Mall is secure, and rocking out with The Band Styx. Free T-shirts, and a severe boost in morale for survivors in the wake of some reprisal Pk's.--Shadow Kenshin 02:46, 13 October 2008 (BST)

10 October Mall is Secured, Powered and Survivor friendly.Come On Over(living only Thanks) Mousey

September 2008

15 September All 4 corners lit, but plenty of ruined buildings surrounding the mall. Still many injured. RisenJihad MEMS DORIS 18:37, 15 September 2008 (BST)

3 September The combination of survivor activity and zombies fanning out to other targets paved the way for the members of Bastion High to finish what everyone else started by eliminating the last zombie within the mall and getting the barricades up to VSB all around. Hardly secure yet though.--Panthera 07:38, 3 September 2008 (BST)

And then the RRF come back and ruin the place. It was fun for the handful of hours it lasted.--Panthera 02:14, 4 September 2008 (BST)

20 June 2008 No new news, the mall is idle, for now. --Jakio 00:08, 20 June 2008 (BST)

The northwest quad of the Mall was ruined in approximately 15 minutes by the LUE horde. The mall has lost all power and there's a great deal of dying, bleeding, and eating going on at the moment. --McTrout 01:14, 20 June 2008 (BST)

April 2008

January 2008

January 18th 2008 Out of respect for this bold challenge by several PKer groups, Especially the Sociopath Apostles and the Columbine Kids, Paradox is willing to taking a few bullets for the mallrats, and has joined the Woodroffe Wild West Days in an effort to make the mall and the suburb of Tollyton safer from random killings. http://z13.invisionfree.com/Paradox_Central/index.php?showtopic=1495&st=0#entry1632742 --Noobermenschen 20:23, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

January 13th 2008 As you all know, PKers have taken the mall. We would like this spot very much, especially with tea and possibly coffee... Oooo, hot chocolate if your a nice lot too.

It's pretty much the wild west at the moment, guns are going off by the dozen. Although lines like 'Oh crap! Sorry, thats not the water pistol!' and 'Dude, I really thought that was a FAK' are always heard after a shot... Weird. ----Ash  |  T  |  яя  | 00:05, 13 January 2008 (UTC)


October 2007

31 October, 2007 Around 15 zombies outside of SE corner. Cades at EHB for all corners and powered generators in each. Zombies keep knocking down the cades so get ready for some action in the SE corner. ----CO Max PD 04:59, 31 October 2007 (EST)

September 2007

29 September, 2007 About 16 zombies gathering outside SE corner, a few in the surrounding areas. No real threat, but keeping an eye on it. IWitness link --Frunobulax 17:35, 29 September 2007 (EST)

27 September, 2007 69 zeds outside the southeast corner, with 4 inside. Cades at EHB, 3 corners powered. Survivor population robust, but most outlying buildings either overbarricaded or ruined, making it nearly impossible to find an entry point. --RevEngEspc 02:06, 28 September 2007 (BST)

20th September, 2007
Auxunit 10 members ransacked the Northwest corner of the mall and are currently waiting on reinforcements.-Trioxin 04:46PM, 20 September 2007(GMT)

5th September, 2007
LUE breached and ransacked the Northwest corner and now has 80+ zombies inside the mall. This does not include the feral mob that was sieging the mall for the last few days and remains outside the Southeast corner. - Brona 02:32, 5 September 2007 (BST)

My survivor just went to Woodroffe to restock and found the NW and SW ruined and full of LUE zombies, with a few survivors and zombies in the other quads. (iwitness.) Survivors still inside advised to clear out or be eaten. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 12:43, 5 September 2007 (BST)

7th August
Paradox has cleared the Mall once more from Zed presence --Theokrat 23:49, 8 August 2007 (BST)

5th August, 2007
The mall looks to have been overrun, one corner has it's doors left wide open, a few people were dragged onto the streets. About, 37 zombies outside, I think.

4th August, 2007

And the mall is back in human hands, but with only six people in it. All corners are barricaded.

3rd August, 2007

And the mall is back under zombie control and has been ransacked.--Necrophagous

July 2007

28th July, 2007

The mall is back under largely human control. Two zeds, along with about 30 humans, now occupy the mall. All four corners are barricaded to EHB and repaired. The bottom half is lit. Operation: Woodroffe Freedom is doing well. --Kell Tainer Sarkin, Malton Defense Corporation 20:29, 28 July 2007 (EST)

24th July, 2007 The Entire mall has been lost, with over 200 zombies inside, cades down, buildings ransacked. All the surrounding buildings have also been ransacked with hoards in them. We'll be needing some heavy clean up sqauds to retake this place. --54sr 13:21, 24 July 2007 (BST)

23rd July, 2007 Zombies are in! They broke through the NW corner in the past hour or so. currently 11 zed sin the NW corner, 3 in the NE, and 2 in the SW. Protect the mall! -- 12:45, 23 July 2007 (Taurrus)

NEW UPDATE: ZEDS EVERYWHERE! The tide of undead has swept into the mall, everyone is dying as I report this! Some say it's LUE. Either way, they are making very short work of everyone in the mall. The mall is most likely lost! Looked like almost 70-100 undead in the mall. . . . --Taurrus 01:42, 24 July 2007 (BST)
Hey everyone! We're back!~--TheNeoianOne 03:00, 24 July 2007 (BST)
Hey guys! Glad you stayed as nice and fresh for LUE like you were last time, this time.--HeavyDead 04:00, 24 July 2007 (BST)
The NW, SE, and SW Quadrants have all been ransacked due to an attack by LUE. Each quadrant contains 30+ zombies, only the NE quadrant contains those delicious dollar-menu-brains. -- --Waruv 04:42, 24 July 2007 (BST)
NE has been ransacked as well, well over 100 zombies inside.--Panthera 05:41, 24 July 2007 (BST)

21th July, 2007 Approx 100 zeds attacking, situation more serious for survivors. Break-ins more frequent and resulting in more deaths. KOS PKer SharkSkinMan in mall. -- 06:20, 21 July 2007 (BST)

15th July, 2007 Situation normal in the mall - NE corner still under attack, defenses holding. Zeds are well organised - break-ins are frequent and quickly result in multiple generator bashings. Survivors being driven to insanity by continual spam radio broadcasts about JP. Seriously, who cares? --Irritable Tom 09:05, 15 July 2007 (BST)

12th July, 2007 Plenty of survivors, but no generators. I wonder why. --DrBowman 14:13, 12 July 2007 (BST)

9th July, 2007 Only 3 Zeds left inside mall, in NW corner. NE and SW corners are barricaded. Mall is empty of survivors. --Irritable Tom 13:35, 9 July 2007 (BST)

5th July, 2007 Despite zombie presence inside the mall, the westen half of the mall is actually quite safe, with any zombies that stray west being dealt with quite quickly. If you're seeking to level up, come attack the zombies and heal some injured people, or even throw out one of the many corpses left in the east of the mall.


We're not beaten yet! --DrBowman 14:48, 5 July 2007 (BST)

No power remaining in the mall. By the time of this writing all survivors in the NE quad should be dead. Several survivors in the SE have died and several more appear to have fled, and an additional 10 or so zombies have entered the Mall.
--Vito Mortis
Indeed, the mall was not safe as zombies cleared the mall by morning.

4th July, 2007 The LUE horde swiftly closed in and ransacked the northwest corner of the Mall, after feinting an attack on the Herbert Building and Eligius General Hospital near Hildebrand Mall. The mall is breached with over 180 zombies inside and feeding on survivors in all four corners of the mall. --Vito Mortis

May 2007

3rd May, 2007 The Drama Club staged a performance of "Apocalypse Now" in the SE courner of Woodroffe Mall for the 59 survivors there as part of their Outward Spiral Tour of Malton. The group plans to travel in a counter-clockwise expanding spiral from the center of the town to the outer edges. See their group page for performing groups and schedules.

March 2007

20th March, 2007

SW corner is repaired, others are ransacked and contain from several to almost 20 zombies. Several survivors have gathered near the mall and are trying to recapture it, so the situation is slowly changing. If there are any survivors near this area, I should mention that volunteers are welcome! Malcolm 20:15, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

12th March, 2007

No survivors inside the mall, all the corners have been ransacked. Mall tour kicks ass again and we must thank Tollyton for giving us fine bra!nz and ham, so thanks! Zombies are moving to nearby buildings to finish the job. -- lazydoctor

11th March, 2007

In a display of decadence and degeneracy that would shock any, except the flesh hordes of the undead bursting through wide open doors into the mall, residents of Woodroffe mall had decorated the mall's interior with a grisly set of hman remains. That macarbe sentinel watches while zombies pour through the breach. Already outnumbering the defenders in the NE corner. Spraypainted on the wall "This place is gonna burn like tinder..." Prophetic. The slaughter and panic have begun. Filthy Jenkins said it best when he said "Barhah, Zombies, Fuck it all, i'm running to the hills". Filthy Jenkins Has been a reliable foreseer of mall destructions, so perhaps it may be best to take his advice.
174 Zombies outside the NE corner, barricades at Very Heavy, the siege begins in earnest tonight and tomorrow as the Zombies recover from their shambling across town. Already Woodroffe has defended itself better than the last two malls attacked by the tour. Developing... --Electrasol 23:03, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Update 32 Zombies have broken into the NE corner. Cade's still down, seems it might be lights out for yet another mall. -- FriedFish.ca

New Update Barricades at VHB. Although over 50 zombies are still in the NE corner of the mall.

Update Again NE corner has 70+ zombies inside, but cades are at heavily barricaded Less than 30 survivors in NE corner now.

Yet another update 11 harmans and 80+ zambahs in the NE corner of the mall, barricades are still down. The Woodroffe Mall food court is busy, very busy, tonight.--MmmBrainsss 04:25, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

10th March, 2007

The Horde is on the way and the Mall is soon to be wrested from the hands of the humans. I don't know about anyone else but I didn't need to wait for a revive but I still didn't even make it to the last two malls before they fell, let alone have time to find enough ammo to put up any worthwhile resistance. If the tour wants a decent fight and a chance to eat my brain, they need to slow down or I'm not gonna make it to this one either.


December 2006

30th December, 2006

The defenders of Woodroffe Mall, and the members of LCD in particular, are pleased to announce the successful defence of the mall. The mob of zombies in the SE corner, formerly number 100+, are now 0, with dozens of corpses piled up against the barricades. It is officially and firmly back in human hands.

28th December, 2006

Numbers of mall population raised, there are now about 60 people in SE corner (the one that has Z horde outside), numbers of these zeds outside dropped to 50 (+ 80 dead bodies). Break-ins still happen, but they are minor and not scary. In general the mall is safe. However there is a poblem: people were drinking a lot of rum for X-mass, there's almost nobody left sober. And then LCD chef, Bromhead, found a box of cuban cigars... A dangerous combination - alcohol and fire - but we hope for better.

24th December, 2006

All corners are still barricaded, and the survivor numbers are growing. Approximately 90 zombies have massed outside the SE corner, but the survivors, including a large squad of the Liberation of Crossman Department have managed to keep them at bay. More survivors are always welcome: Entry point is Wakely building, Revive Point directly south of the SE corner, very well serviced.

16th December, 2006

All corners are barricaded, free of zombies and working with generators. The only major problem seems to be a horde outside SE corner, made of about 70 zombies, but during the last days, there were few break ins. Surroundings are safe to sleep.

6th December, 2006

Woodruffe is under human hands. SE corner is Very Strongly Barricaded and with a generator. Surroundings are becoming less dangerous, but not safe enough to sleep in buildings less than VSB.

October 2006

October 11th, 2006

The mall is completely empty, no survivors, no zombies, nothing. 3 corners at EHB and 1 open, every corner ransacked. Z-man 14:08, 11 Oct 2006 (GMT)

September 2006

September 23rd, 2006

The mall is currently under a light but effective seige of 25 zombies and growing.The majority of the seige is is the south east corner where at the moment It is loosley baricaded and the baricades are going to fall soon The amount of people inside is currently unknown to the attackers.

September 10th, 2006

The mall is up in the air for the moment, with one human and one zombie in it at oposite corners. The mall looks like its ripe for the taking but the neighborhood remains pretty open with only a few hasitly thrown up barricades arround.

August 2006

11th August, 2006

The mall has fallen once again. A group of 20+ zeds overwhelmed and sacked the mall, wounding and killing many of the small number of defenders in the mall. As of right now, there are about 15-20 zombies inside the mall.

July 2006

21st July, 2006

Prepare yourselves! The Big Bash is coming your direction! Eight malls have already fallen, don't let the next one be you! Help out smaller buildings too, but with the size of the upcoming attack, many will flee to the mall for safety. Don't let them down!
Update: The mall has fallen. Three corners empty, two zombies munching on two survivors in SE corner. All of fifteen zombies in the general area around the mall - either the horde's moved on already or Woodroffe's defenders SUCK.

May 2006

15th May, 2006

The zombies has begun losing interest in the mall, with only about a dozen zombies at any time, most in the southwest corner of the mall. The zombies have begun to attack nearby TRPs in earnest, and are attacking zombies waiting for revives in the nearby cemetery, violating the Sacred Ground Policy.

1st May, 2006

Woodroffe Mall was razed by the RRF while on excursion.

March 2006

25 March, 2006

Woodroffe Mall has been completely overrun by the valiant zombies of Minions of the Apocalypse and Ridleybank Resistance Front. Members of Paradox who didn't immediately run away in tears were reportedly decapited, with their heads being used in what appears to be a rudimentary form of the sport 'curling' in the the mall's indoor ice skating rink.

February 2006

09:45, 6 Feb 2006 (GMT)

Woodroffe Mall has regained the status of safehouse, and is under the close protection of Paradox.

January 2006

19th Jan 2006

The senseless death of hundreds in the mall did nothing more than create hundreds of more zombies, The intelligent survivors withdrew as instructed and are STILL fighting a rear guard action. The mall is currently in human control, but is constantly under ongoing attack,

20:20, 9 Jan 2006 (GMT)

Woodroffe Mall has fallen to MALL TOUR '06. The valiant defence of the mall by relatively few survivors was praised by the leadership of the tour, and by many Mall Tourists.

09:30, 8 Jan 2006 (GMT)

the RRF and Mall Tour '06 is confirmed to be moving in the direction of Woodroffe Mall. Confirmed number of zombies stands at 172, with bodies bringing the total to nearly 400.
(Undated) Malton Defense Corporation wants all survivors in the mall to stay and hold the line. In the event that the mall falls, they order survivors to fall back to the surrounding buildings and continue the fight.


October 2005

Late October 2005

The mall and surrounding buildings came under attack from zombie groups including the Undying Scourge and the Hambargar Halparz. After several days of combat, all four quadrants of the mall were cleared of survivors. By mid-November, the mall remained empty, although zombie presence had considerably declined.
