May 3rd, 2008 - The Dulston Dispatch goes public! Previously it was just handed out in the back alley of the Trood Building, but now that it has gained more writers, the Dispatch is being produced on a weekly basis. Check it out today! (the link is on the bar at the top)

May 2nd, 2008 - Today there was much celebration and drunken debauchery at Alliance HQ, as two veteran groups were welcomed into the alliance: the Gibsonton Defense Alliance and Rolt Heights Vigilante Patrol. A new age is beginning in the northeast, and with the recent attack by the Dead rebuffed by the brave defenders in the Whitlock Building (aka "The Fortress of Science"), we can be sure it won't be a short one.

April 23rd, 2008 - Zombies... zombies everywhere. Not only does Dulston suffer from infestation problems, but now it also suffers from the lack of great leaders. Mobius (aka, noted NecroTech scientist "Caleb Usher"), figurehead and spokesperson of the Alliance, has stepped down. Although it was expected eventually, it had come at perhaps the worst time. The Alliance wishes Mobius the best of luck in his future endeavors, and hopes that, if he returns, he returns with truckloads of high yield explosives.

In other news, after much deliberation the Alliance has finally upgraded a Non-Aggression pact with The Imperium of Man to a Support Accord. The Alliance hopes that this treaty will further strengthen bonds with our ever supportive allies.

March 31st, 2008 - The tactical situation at Treweeke Mall has been rated as "not so good". But that's okay, it's all part of the secret plan for dealing with the Dead. What plan? The secret one. Alliance operatives are advised to keep abreast of all operations currently underway for the betterment and survival of every non-zombie in Malton.

March 27th, 2008 - It turns out the the truce with Red Rum was in fact too good to be true. Only seven days after declaring a temporary truce with the Alliance, Red Rum broke it by murdering several survivors at the Whitlock Building and Treweeke Mall. Upon learning of this event the Alliance revoked the truce and responded in kind by executing several criminals. Sources indicate the temporary truce was in fact their idea of an April Fools joke, but Red Rum was forced to act early when the Dead threatened to kill them before they could put their plan in motion. As such, popular opinion has it that the joke fell flat, lacking the classic punchline that makes a joke great. In the meantime Alliance operatives are advised to continue hunting all criminals still lingering in the area.

March 19th, 2008 - At this time Friends of the Featherstone Library announced that they will be leaving the Dulston Alliance effective immediately. The group's representative and well-known bounty hunter, Shotgun Ed, had this to say:

"The Friends of the Featherstone Library (FotFL) were one of the first groups to join the Dulston Alliance almost two years ago. During that time we have helped defend the greater Dulston area against three huge zombie mall crawls and numerous well planned and organized PKer events. We have rightfully earned out reputation as relentless PKer hunters in defense of not only our own group but the Dulston Alliance as well as the general population of northeastern Malton.

"The FotFL always heeded the call of any group in the Alliance or group that was allied with the Dulston Alliance. We never have, nor will we ever, back down from a fight.

"We wish the Dulston Alliance groups, new and old, the best of luck and thank them for their service alongside FotFL."

The Alliance wishes the Friends of the Featherstone Library the best of luck in all their new endevors and have no doubts that they will continue to protect Pescodside in the days ahead.

March 17th, 2008 - As truces come, this one is a bit of a whopper. The recent problem with the multitude of zombies which comprise the aptly named horde known as The Dead have pushed the infamous assassin group Red Rum to seek a temporary alliance with our organization. After several days of intense deliberations the final verdict was to sign a temporary truce. Even so, member groups like the Friends of the Featherstone Library are the least comfortable with their current bedfellows as the very notion of working with criminals goes against the grain for many of them. Still, the hope is that this truce will secure the safety of survivors in all four Alliance suburbs and help to provide a unified front against the encroaching zombie hordes. Only time will tell if this arrangement is mutually beneficial in what some view as the livings' "final days of Malton". Of course we're more optimistic about our odds.

March 10th, 2008 - After confirming, and reconfirming, recon reports the Alliance has finally determined that the Flustered Brethren are to be considered for all intensive purposes to be disbanded. Ever since November 26th, when the group's popular leader Flustered Fred departed Malton, the group had begun a gradual descent into obscurity. Possibly drunken obscurity. While the Flubbers were not with the Alliance for long, their "get up and get drunk" attitude will be sorely missed. The Alliance salutes them and wishes them well in Beer Valhalla.

March 5th, 2008 - After weeks of epic struggle against the shambling hordes their hold on Dulston has finally been broken and the suburb has once more become safe. Zombies are no doubt on the run (elsewhere) and life has returned back to normal in the northeastern corner of Malton. In addition, threat assessments for Rhodenbank, Rolt Heights, and Pescodside have indicated decreased zombie activity to the point where some, or all, of these suburbs may be considered safe as well. Of course further recon of each suburb's safehouses is still required before an updated safety analysis can be formally issued. Until then, survivors can count on relative safety and the protection of the Alliance.

March 1st, 2008 - Zerg Hunt I, supported locally by classy freelance bounty hunter Druboo, has the unified support of the Alliance. Operatives who are interested in hunting clones are encouraged to confirm who is on their list, while those who are not interested in hunting, but are interested in helping, should report any known zerger locations so those that are hunting them can deal with them more efficiently.

On that note, the connection between SweetHikari (DITPS) and the dangerous criminal Dirty Rockstar really is a confusingly horrific mess. For the long story hunters are requested to contact Caleb Usher or Druboo for the details prior to any executions. For the short story it is recommended that you only hunt Dirty Rockstar (as regardless of the situation she is still a wanted fugitive on the Black List).

February 27th, 2008 - Today marks the celebration of the 2nd Anniversary of the Dulston Alliance's foundation in Malton. For some it is hard to imagine what life would be like in northeast Malton without our dedicated survivor organization around to help protect local survivors and beat down the unrepentant zombie masses. Sigh. Good times. As the recent struggle against the zombie hordes, mere remnants of the Second Big Bash has taken a positive upswing for survivors locals have the opportunity to join us in celebration. So grab a beer and help us ring in another year of Alliance good will.

February 19th, 2008 - Reconstruction efforts continue in Pescodside with several key resource buildings secured and firmly in survivor hands. Efforts also continue to strengthen Alliance presence in southern Dulston.

In other news, the D.I.T.P.S are fighting hard to hold St. Anacletus's Hospital against the zombie mob beating on their doors. While most the Alliance efforts to reclaim the northeast have concentrated in Pescodside, members of the D.I.T.P.S prefer to stay in the very heart of the conflict and provide much needed assistance to stranded survivors in zombie-infested Dulston. Good on them! The Alliance, as always, wishes them the best of luck in their current endeavor.

February 11th, 2008 - While Operation: Let the Zombies Win might have in essence been considered a theoretical victory, tactically speaking it lacked many of the key "pro-positive" results usually associated with a successful operation. As such, efforts are being made to recapture several key buildings along Dulston's southern border. At this time operatives are advised to revive, regroup, and assist with reclamation operations already underway in Pescodside.

February 4th, 2008 - The hounds of war are barking yet again as the Alliance marches off to do battle again with the Big Bash. Operatives, some of whom were already in Santlerville in wait of the zombie horde, were quick to relay recon reports back to local HQs. The only factor staying full Alliance support up until now were matters of diplomacy, of which a major factor had recently been put to rest as an agreement was reached with our classy ally, the Dribbling Beavers who have pledged mutual support in the coming weeks in return for the swift sword of the Alliance cutting down the zombie rabble besieging their fair suburb.

In other news, plans are underway to reinforce the barricades and manpower at the Whitlock Building, aka "The Fortress of Science", so as to aid in withstanding any zombie force thrown against it. Caleb Usher himself coordinated the effort from his secret facility outside Malton. If the zombies are looking for an easy victory, they certainly won't find it at Whitlock. If they doubt us, we ask them to prove us wrong.

February 3rd, 2008 - Once again the members of Electric Light Torchestra has proven themselves to be assets after this External Military report on 25.96 MHz: "... Dulston looks clear ... suburb's lit up like a Christmas tree ... infrastructure looks intact too ... Treweeke Mall has power ..." (2 hours and 1 minute ago). Without a doubt the ELT are the light of hope for the survivors of Dulston and the Alliance.

February 1st, 2008 - With the collapse of Pitneybank all Alliance operatives from the expeditionary force are being called back. As the next target of the Second Big Bash has been determined steps are now being taken to meet them in full force. Our strategists have weighed the odds, and after the leadership dismissed their negative opinions, it was concluded the Alliance could break the horde if it really wanted it badly enough. The Bash has grown fat and their newly overblown ego is their greatest weakness. The Alliance will exploit that weakness, and being the heroes of this epic tale, we are sure to win.

January 31st, 2008 - An urgent tactical report from the Alliance's Pitneybank expeditionary force revealed that the battle has taken an unfortunate turn for the worse. As Giddings Mall begins its gradual decline at the hands of the unwashed zombie masses known as the Second Big Bash operatives are encouraged to regroup at the Morrish Building where efforts are underway to launch renewed counter-insurgency assaults against the horde. In other news operatives reported that they would occasionally run into and kill members of Defective Swarm. We're glad to know that the Swarm are contributing to a worthy cause, namely getting shot down by our operatives. To that we salute them for a job well done.

January 30th, 2008 - A tactical report from Pitneybank from the Alliance's expeditionary forces have confirmed yet another major breach at Giddings Mall, but this time in the mall's southeast corner. The Alliance would like to remind all operatives to kill as many zombies as possible for the greater good.

January 29th, 2008 - Zombie numbers have continued to decline as the complete lack of organized zombie mobs within Dulston has forced ferals to flee for more accessible hunting grounds.

In other news, the Battle of Pitneybank continues to rage. Members of D.I.T.P.S stationed at Giddings Mall reported a major breach in the northwest corner of the mall. The was the longest recorded breach in the battle so far before survivors were able to push the zombies back out, and as such the Alliance has sent further reinforcements to assist with re-securing the mall.

January 20th, 2008 - Recon reports that all major conflicts within the four suburbs have ended, with only token zombie resistance currently in motion. Of course the Alliance would expect no less what with Defective Swarm off in Pitneybank. As a goodly portion of the Alliance's might has also descended on Pitneybank to assist survivors there many operatives expect that all of the real action will be away from Alliance territory.

January 11th, 2008 - In recent days word that the Big Bash has been stopped dead in its tracks in Pitneybank has drawn increasing attention among Alliance member groups that had, up until now, been preparing to face the horde in the northeast. As this is seen by many as the perfect chance to break the horde before it can proceed further north several Alliance groups have expressed an interest in heading south to join the defenders at the Morrish Building. If success can be met there than efforts will be made to forge alliances with those survivor groups who joined in the battle.

January 1st, 2008 - The Dulston Alliance wishes all of its operatives and allies a happy new year. Conversely it also wishes many deaths to its criminals and enemies, but in a festive way that belies the joy of the season.


December 26th, 2007 - Dulston is still a hotbed of activity as Alliance operatives and zombies duke it out over the holiday season. Resources buildings have both fallen and been reclaimed, with the northeast suffering the highest degree of "ownership trading". Even Whitlock, the mighty Fortress of Science, was overrun only to be reclaimed in recent days. Among Alliance allies it has been reported that the BAR have seen more then their fair share of action in the past 2-3 weeks, and their continued support is appreciated. Efforts continue to quell the zombie insurgency.

December 16th, 2007 - Things have definitely gone downhill. Most all of Dulston is in ruins, the Whitlock Building has fallen, and the MoB and the Swarm are pounding on the doors of Treweeke. All forces outside of Dulston, reconverge- we need the help.

December 7th, 2007 - A day later and reports indicate that Alliance and allied forces at the Clewett Building have held strong in the face of 5 breach attempts by zombies. This fact has no doubt constipated confounded the Militant Order of Barhah zombies, or "MOoBs" as we have come to refer to them. The Alliance of course doesn't expect the zombies to give up anytime soon in their attempt to overrun Clewett NT, so the Alliance expects even more glorious battles. Unless they do, in which case they're nothing more than undead surrender-monkeys.

In other news, Defective Swarm attacked Anne General Hospital, one of the HQs of the DITPS. The breach was rebuffed and the zombies involved dumped back out into the street.

December 5th-6th, 2007 - As of 12:29 AM (GMT) Alliance recon reported that with the combined joint military action of the PDA, FOXHOUND, KMA, Friends of the Featherstone Library, and the BAR a survivor victory was secured at the Clewett Building. At this time the facility was once more in survivor hands and the Militant Order of Barhah horde had been turned back for the time being.

Ottari, of the PDA and NecroWatch, also received information that survivors in Pescodside and from Rolt Heights had also reclaimed St. Ninian's Hospital, turned back a zombie break-in at the Waish Building, and reclaimed Youl Avenue Railway Station from the zombie menace nuisance. From these reports it appeared obvious that the Militant Order of Barhah had over-extended their reach and were being turned back on all fronts.

Update: In an effort not to appear sleeping on the job, the Militant Order of Barhah stood up their, for lack of a better word I'll say "lazy", forces and again threatened the Clewett Building. An Alliance tactical report made at 02:36 AM (GMT) indicated that 11 zombies had breached the building's primary defense perimeter (i.e. a wall of junk) and were inside causing trouble. Zombies, what can you do with them? The battle was intense and action-packed, but a survivor report issued at 12:25 PM (GMT) proved that the MoB had finally got served again when survivors were shown to be still holding the building this morning.

December 3rd, 2007 - The Dulston Alliance and the Northern Regiment stood before photographers at historic Treweeke Mall as they together signed a Non-Aggression Pact, thus furthering plans to bring additional allies into the ongoing struggle against zombies menacing the NE Corner. The Northern Regiment, a newly-minted mobile survivor group, is led by Blanemcc who is known for his bravery as a veteran survivor and as a former member of the Burchell Arms Regulars. An Alliance spokesman had this to say, "We stand united by our mutual goal, which put simply, is the complete annihilation of all zombies in the NE Corner. Only once the zombie menace has been put to task can true peace be restored to these suburbs."

December 2nd, 2007 - The Pescodside Defense Alliance (PDA) launched yet another tactical strike against zombies holding the Clewett Building, with some assistance from local survivors determined to retake the building from the Militant Order of Barhah. The operation began at 8:00 PM EST and ended approximately 15 minutes later. The tactical assets committed to the battle included 14 MoB zombies versus a 12-man PDA strike team. By the time the dust settled there were 8 confirmed zombie casualties and 0 PDA casualties. A final analysis shows that the building is still occupied with 6 zombies inside.

Further recon indicated that St. Ninian's Hospital may require further reinforcements as an estimated 25 MoB members are currently outside the building, well, as corpses, but dangerous corpses. The Burchell Arms Regulars have continued to fight alongside Alliance operatives in their efforts to reclaim Clewett from the clutches, or dare we say "evil" clutches, of the Militant Order. Success will no doubt be an inevitability in the days to come. Then many songs to the awesomeness of the Alliance will no doubt follow.

November 30th, 2007 - The Pescodside Defense Alliance (PDA) have once more rejoined the Dulston Alliance. This was a day for much celebrating as long have some of the Alliance's brothers-in-arms wondered why the PDA departed the Alliance in the first place so many months ago. But now the PDA have returned, their willingness to fight with the Alliance rekindled by several hard-fought battles alongside members of King Murek's Army and the Friends of the Featherstone Library during Operation: Earth is Round. It's said that it was then, covered in the blood and gore of many dead FES members, that Lemonhead7t7 learned the true meaning of Christmas. I ask you, what more could the Alliance ask for? Well... other than a Grisum skull mug, but in all respects that's a given.

November 27th, 2007 - The Defective Swarm have once again been playing hide-and-go-seek in the buildings of northern Dulston. After the fall of Clewett Alley PD, the Beale Building has also fallen. After several days of brave fighting for the greater good in Dulston, zombie numbers have been reduced to a meager handful in both buildings and we stand on the eve of the reclamation of the respective Allied Travelers Organisation and Flustered Brethren HQ's.

November 23rd, 2007 - A rather nasty party of our old Defective Swarm adversaries decided it would be a good idea to attack the Flustered Brethren (FLUB) HQ at Clewett Alley PD in Dulston's north. Unfortunately FLUB, who were engaged in their favorite pastime at the time of the attack, mistook the zombies for hangover victims and tried to help them get out of the cold. For the sake of FLUB and Dulston's beer supply, the citizens of Dulston must unite and help reclaim the building from the whimsical grasp of the soon to be disaffected Swarm.

November 18th, 2007 - As the ink still dried on the treaty today signaled the beginning of stronger mutual support relations between the Alliance and a new mobile survivor group, Evil Never Dies (E.N.D.). Present during this memorable occasion was former Alliance diplomat, Caleb Usher, and the leader of E.N.D., XxCannon FodderxX, who celebrated the Non-Aggression Pact as the first step of many that would lead towards the eventual elimination of zombies in the NE Corner, and perhaps one day, all of Malton.

November 17th, 2007 - The Defective Swarm have continued to rampage runaround Dulston. While there have been losses, such as the fall of the Trood Building, we are glad to point out that the Whitlock Building, aka the "Fortress of Science" stands tall. Its awe-inspiring awesomeness no doubt spreading fear and doubt into the hearts of zombies everywhere for miles around it. There's no doubt at all about that. An attempt earlier today to breach the Whitlock Building's defenses were rebuffed, even with heavy survivor losses. But they all died good deaths and shall swiftly return to shore-up the building's defenses yet again.

In other news, Operation: Earth is Round has continued unabated by those Alliance operatives working in Pescodside. Spearheading the operation was none other than the Alliance's most kick-ass son, Shotgun Ed. Among those Alliance groups who have so far engaged the Flat Earth Society, it was King Murek's Army that most recently taken up the cause. This came about when King Murek himself learned that the FES world-map apparently denied the existence of his beloved Finland. In response he has declared that KMA will not rest until the ignorance of FES has been abolished from the NE Corner.

November 12th, 2007 - At this point the Alliance is not sure which is more surprising, the fact that Defective Swarm actually managed to pull off a coordinated and successful attack, or the fact that their target was the southwest corner of Treweeke Mall, whose barricades they managed to breach. Truly astounding. Just when one was about to dismiss them as a real threat they manage to pull off an interesting assault for once. File photo footage shown here showcases the Alliance's favorite son, Kikashie of the ELT, as he blunted the zombies' charge by killing none other than their leader, Captain Grisum.

At this stage the Alliance was geared for a major conflict, but just when reinforcements were being called in the zombie attack was defeated and the mall's fallen southwest corner re-secured. The Alliance has only one question for Defective Swarm: "Why did all your sizzle suddenly turn into fizzle?". Why indeed.

November 10th, 2007 - It was has been termed "a great day of awesomeness", the Alliance has accepted the Flustered Brethren into its ranks. FLUB, as they like to be known, are situated in northeast Dulston and as such are helping to stabilize the area against zombie threats, as the northeast has notoriously remained one of the few havens inside Dulston where the beleaguered zombie masses stew. Now, with the support of FLUB, that stew will be cooked quite nicely. Flustered Fred announced the following over radio frequency 25.99 MHz:

"--know if I'm on? No? Yes? Well, crap or get off the pot, Forrest. You're the fix-it guy... Huh? I really AM on, Buster? Shoot. No, I mean, uh, cool. (*clears throat*) I am Flustered Fred, the president, founder, Grand Poobah and generally in-charge fella here at Clewett Alley Police Department, the base of operations of the Flustered Brethren. Which, I suppose, also makes me culpable for the recent problems we had with the Coke machine on the second floor, depending upon whom you believe, me or the Coke regional rep. I mean, who heard of a soda machine that didn't take coins? What are we using, the Mark of the Beast or something? Sorry. Um, anyway, uh, where was I? Oh, yeah. (*clears throat*) We have just received news that FLUB, as we sometimes call ourselves, has been accepted into the formidable power bloc known as the Dulston Alliance, a conglomeration of survivors looking to help others during the outbreak here in northeastern Malton. On behalf of this bunch of booze hounds (*snicker*), I mean, er, the Flustered Brethren, I wish to proffer, offer, hand out, and generously give my thanks. We've worked long and hard for the last, uh, while, to show that we're more than a bunch of heavily-armed bar flies."

"While our love continues to grow for martinis and lager thick enough to chew, our desire to provide material assistance and refreshment to the survivor population of Dulston has as well, perhaps moreso, especially with five police departments, a mall, and all those guns being, what, within seven blocks of one another? Yeah, seven. Lots of bullets, and Treweeke still has Guinness in the southeast corner. Life is good. Anyhoo, the Flustered Brethren have been dedicated to tapping kegs and shooting shamblers for a while now. With God's blessing -- and a fresh delivery from Anheuser-Busch -- all should go well."

"I will immediately celebrate the inclusion of my group into this alliance by personally throwing out the first dead body from the next zombie incursion into the Beale Building. Thanks to the Dulston Alliance for their support, and confidence, in our group. We hope to do all of you proud. Thank you for your time and consideration."

"A good, safe day, to all in Dulston, and by extension, Malton, the remainder of the region, nation and world. May we have peace on earth, and may Oktoberfest stretch through the other 11 months. Good-bye! (*pause*) Okay, can I go take a wazzer now? (*laughter*) What? The mic's still on? Turn it off, you imbecile! Yes, now, Buster! Pull the plug, you nimrod, or I'll shoot you right in your fat, chicken-nugget-guzzling a-"

Of course not everything is "sunshine and lollipops" here in Malton, as the Alliance has taken the time to honor its fallen comrades as well. In particular the Alliance commends the membership of the Palytoxin Gang who have recently been confirmed as MIA. While a handful of the group still remain alive and active their group representative, Mr Fosi, has confirmed that they no longer exist as a group. The Alliance bids this noble group farewell and glory in Valhalla... or some other religious afterlife location of their choosing.

November 8th, 2007 - A Non-Aggression Pact was signed today with the Allied Travellers Organisation in order to strengthen ties with the new survivor group which had only recently moved into Dulston. While initially the ATO had requested to join the Alliance as a new member group, the decision was made to wait until the ATO had established themselves within the suburb before granting them full membership. The ATO plans to begin its efforts be re-securing their chosen HQ and fighting against the recent zombie insurgency in northern Dulston.

November 6th, 2007 - Recon reports have shown that there have been several break-ins in northern Dulston. It has also been noted that while some of the zombies are feral, others appear to be associated with Defective Swarm. Operatives are asked that, for the time being, they suspend all other in-progress or staged operations in order to help resolve this situation. Alliance operatives are asked to please bring some Windex. After all, every ailment from psoriasis to poison ivy can be cured with Windex, so why not zombies too?

October 31st, 2007 - The Alliance would like to officially wish all law-abiding NE Corner survivors a "Happy Halloween"! While there is little doubt that this holiday will bring about increased zombie activity in the area, Alliance operatives are reminded to turn this situation into a positive by bagging that extra zombie kill for the Halloween Zombie Bash.

In other news, the Flustered Brethren signed a Non-Aggression Pact with the Dulston Alliance at Treweeke Mall. Flustered Fred was reported to have been in good spirits during the signing as he dedicated his forces to furthering the survivor cause in Dulston in the days to come.

October 25th, 2007 - Once again Defective Swarm have shown a marked lack of zombie tactics when striking against Alliance operatives. We here at the Alliance believe it's high time Defective Swarm abandon this charade and admit that they are in fact no longer a zombie group. As a majority of their high-profile kills are only being accomplished through this underhanded method the writing already appears to be on the wall. If this persists the Alliance intends to draft a formal cease and desist being zombies request and pin it to Captain Grisum the next time he's killed. That or one the many Blazes oddly associated with their group.

October 19th, 2007 - A press release was issued by the Alliance in which the details of a recent vote were revealed. While it was originally planned for the Alliance vote to run for at least a week the overwhelming number of responses which favored the motion, which involved renaming the zombie group "Infected Swarm" to "Defective Swarm", appeared highly unlikely to face any real opposition within the Alliance. By the end a staggering 81.25% voted for the motion to pass. The general sentiment held by voters was that zombies after all had no rights and the suggested new name was deemed humorous enough to sway even the most fickle voter. As such, from this day henceforth the zombie group shall be referred to as Defective Swarm.

In other news, Operation: Earth is Round is proceeding as planned with several targets executed. Operatives interested in secondary objectives are advised that additional targets have made themselves available in connection with a local event scheduled by the target group later this month. While the Alliance has nothing against social gatherings, per say, it does when they involve killers. So as always, good hunting.

October 17th, 2007 - Alliance operatives interested in participating in counter-terrorist activities are requested to contact their group leader or representative and inquire about Operation: Earth is Round. Members are asked to act quickly though, as the early stages of this new operation are already underway. That is all.

October 16th, 2007 - In recent days there has been a flurry of activity at various Alliance safehouses across the NE Corner as a new politically-charged debate is just under way. At stake are the free rights of local zombies. Alliance members have been asked to vote on whether zombies really have a right to name their horde or whether the Alliance, as the de facto "people with brains", should instead arbitrarily rename zombie groups as they see fit. The first test of this new policy will be to decide whether Infected Swarm should officially be recognized henceforth as Defective Swarm.

When asked to comment noted NecroTech scientist Caleb Usher had this to say, "As a former diplomat for the Alliance I believe that the odds favor them mocking the Infected Swarm. A zombie group that relies heavily on radio threats... but then fails miserably to deliver on them deserves the moniker of 'Defective', wouldn't you agree?"

As voting is only in the early stages a final decision is still days away, but Alliance political pundits have already predicted the end result should be humorous.

October 14th, 2007 - With our section of the NE Corner now safe and "green" once more the Alliance has decided that we can all finally kick back and prepare for more festive events like the annual Halloween Zombie Bash on October 31st. Yes, nothing says Halloween quiet like hunting down notorious zombie leaders and beating them within an inch of their unlife. Some might call it mean-spirited, but all survivors consider it just good-natured fun. After all, they're just zombies.

October 5th, 2007 - What was predicted over a week ago has come to pass. The zombie war machine in Dulston has ground to a halt. This cannot be any truer than in the DITPS report that Anne General Hospital has finally gone an entire day without a single breach. ELT have reported a steady increase in powered buildings as now 83% of Dulston is powered (48/58 buildings). On the flip side, recon indicates that zombies have taken to striking weakly-defended buildings instead as it seems they lack the necessary numbers and coordination to siege primary resource targets. If anything, this certainly proves that the DDT is more "dead" than "undead" these days.

September 26th, 2007 - The ELT reported that 75% of Dulston is powered, with survivors listed as both safe and secure. It appears that the "great zombie menace" has passed as local feral zombies and other small-time zombie groups in the area are failing to make any real impact on survivor strongholds.

In other news, the DITPS continued to thwart renewed zombie efforts to overrun Anne General Hospital. How long this will last for has yet to be seen as 30+ zombies were last reported at their location, but for now DITPS members seemed to be enjoying a good laugh at the expense of the zombies outside.

September 21st, 2007 - In a honestly unsurprising turn of events, recent efforts by the RCDC to secure a temporary truce with the Leighton Kru in Rhodenbank turned out to be nothing more than a smoke screen. Also, since there was no longer a serious zombie threat to the suburb neither side saw any reason to continue talks. Bottom line, the RCDC/Leighton Kru war continues, and the Leighton Kru are still douchebags. So, no change really...

September 19th, 2007 - The fight against the zombie incursion into Dulston continues to proceed in our favor as recon reports indicate their numbers have dwindled since the initial suburb-wide invasion that culminated in the fall of Treweeke Mall. Since then Alliance personnel from the DITPS have been able to hold Anne General Hospital and St. Anacletus's Hospital, while the ELT reported that the Whitlock Building has managed to rebuff several attempted zombie break-ins, but the zombies will no doubt continue their siege. The mall itself remains a fortress since it recapture, proving without a doubt that there is nothing the zombies can take that we cannot take back.

In other news, Alliance scouts have reported that zombie activity in Pescodside has dropped significantly and the suburb's danger level has since been upgraded to a "safe" status.

September 15th, 2007 - With the recent zombie conflicts in the very heart of Alliance territory diplomatic missions to other survivors groups in the NE Corner have been few and far between. Even so, efforts by the Dribbling Beavers to assist in the defense and reclamation of Treweeke Mall did not go unnoticed by the Alliance leadership. As such, extra effort was made to establish diplomatic ties with the veteran survivor group from Santlerville and on this day that goal was finally achieved. In a treaty ceremony at an undisclosed location Evils Presley and Shotgun Ed signed a Non-Aggression Pact that cemented relations between the Dribbling Beavers and the Alliance.

Former diplomat, Caleb Usher, had this to say on this historic event, "The Dulston Alliance values the continued support of its newest ally, the Dribbling Beavers, who have already proven themselves as a force to be reckoned with when dealing with some of the most powerful zombie hordes in Malton. Compared to the relatively small zombie groups currently occupying Dulston it is only a matter of time before all zombie resistance in the northeast is crushed."

September 14th, 2007 - A recon report has 47 zombies now hanging around outside Treweeke Mall. Could this sudden increase in activity be in some way connected to zombies reading our news and rallying against us? We don't believe so, since zombies can't even spell "news", let alone read it. Regardless of the reason Alliance members are reminded to keep an eye on the mall's barricades.

September 11th, 2007 - As of 3:14PM (EDT) a recon from the ELT indicates that most of Dulston's buildings have been reclaimed. At this time only 11 buildings remain ruined/ransacked, while the rest have been recaptured and re-barricaded (all EHB, except for entry-points).

Of course the weakening of zombie forces in the area has culminated in their gathering outside the southwest corner of Treweeke Mall. Last count had 54 zombies milling about outside and attacking the barricades. No doubt they came after hearing the Alliance's rooftop heckles and general zombie insults. In all honestly, no matter what the final outcome, it was seriously funny. Zombie egos bruise like peaches... easily.

Update: In a surprising turn of events, rather than increasing the size of the zombie mob attacking the mall, the Alliance's taunts have apparently diminished their undead numbers. No doubt feelings were hurt. Where once there were 54 zombies outside there now stand only 39. Of course the Alliance isn't about to hold back now that the zombies are apparently on the (emotional) defensive. The plan is to continue belittling them from the mall's rooftop until the very last vestiges of whatever glory they obtained from toppling Treweeke Mall has evaporated. Failing that, Plan B involves hurling rotten vegetables, gathered from the mall's grocery store, down at the zombies below. It's gonna be sweeeet!

September 8th, 2007 - Due to the heroic efforts of the Dulston Alliance, and key allied groups like the Dribbling Beavers, Treweeke Mall has been retaken! Every corner is powered, barricaded, and zombie-free (that's 100% less zombies than previously advertised). Here is the latest recon update, courtesy of the Electric Light Torchestra.

Treweeke Mall

NE corner- 30 survivors, 0 zombies (powered, radio, EHB), 0 zombies outside
NW corner- 23 survivors, 0 zombies (powered, radio, EHB), 3 zombies outside
SE corner- 55 survivors, 0 zombies (powered, radio, EHB), 3 zombies outside
SW corner- 19 survivors, 0 zombies (powered, radio, EHB), 9 zombies outside

The Whitlock Building

34 survivors, 8 zombies (no power, no radio, EHB), 50 zombies outside

Pegrum Place PD

6 survivors, 0 zombies (no power, no radio, HB), 37 zombies outside

September 6th, 2007 - After every axe was broken, and after every bullet fired, the dust settled around Treweeke Mall. The zombies had driven out the survivors. Those that made it out alive fell back to either The Whitlock Building or Pegrum Place PD. It has become apparent that we do not have the resources or manpower to secure the mall, but our top strategists are busy working on a daring plan to push back the zombie menace. Updates will follow shortly, and It is recommended that survivors in Dulston focus on reviving and healing for the time being. Remember, don't give up! Show the zombies that we will defend our home to the last man!

September 5th, 2007 - While the southwest corner of Treweeke Mall remains in zombie hands the Alliance and local survivors have managed to secure the other three corners of the mall and with assistance from the Electric Light Torchestra each location is now powered. As such, 75% of the mall is currently zombie free. Additional survivor reinforcements have been called in to assist with plans to further secure the mall and push ahead with a counter-offensive against the zombie invaders in the southwest corner.

In what some members of the Alliance consider a surprise, the Friends of the Featherstone Library have been assisting with the offensive against the zombies. The "surprise" here being that the FotFL almost exclusively hunt murderers these days. It just goes to show you that they really are team players when the chips are down.

September 4th, 2007 - Nothing quite like the smell of napalm in the morning. The battle for Treweeke Mall has been fierce, but it's now only a matter of time before the zombie forces yield to survivors as the only factor holding back resecuring the entire mall is a lack in survivor manpower caused by the initial attack against the mall and the associated casualties. Until those survivors are revived and rejoin the fight the battle will remain in a stalemate. At this time survivors control the northeast corner of the mall, while 34 or so zombie fester in the southwest corner. The northwest and southeast corner are currently in the midst of a tug-of-war as zombie overrun and survivors reclaim the two areas on an hourly basis. Neither side seems willing to give them up or powerful enough to hold them for long.

On the other hand both the Whitlock Building and Pegrum Place PD are secure and powered. With both of these resource buildings firmly secured it will no doubt speed along the reclamation process.

August 31st, 2007 - The Dribbling Beavers from Santlerville and the Burchell Arms Regulars from Rolt Heights have dispatched support forces to assist with reclaiming Treweeke Mall from the zombies infesting it.

August 28th, 2007 - Treweeke Mall, like a mighty football player, has been sacked. The current status of several buildings in the suburb can be seen below:

Treweeke Mall

NE corner - 20 zombie, 00 survivor - NO Generator/NO Barricades/Ransacked
NW corner - 08 zombie, 00 survivor - NO Generator/NO Barricades/Ransacked
SE corner - 00 zombie, 01 survivor - NO Generator/QSB Barricades/Ransacked
SW corner - 12 zombie, 00 survivor - NO Generator/NO Barricades/Ransacked

The Whitlock Building

51 zombies, 0 survivors - NO Generator/NO Barricades/Ransacked

August 26th, 2007 - Treweeke Mall is under attack. The current status of several key resource buildings in the suburb can be seen below:

Treweeke Mall

NE corner - 00 zombie, 110 survivor - NO Generator/EHB Barricades
NW corner - 00 zombie, 025 survivor - NO Generator/EHB Barricades
SE corner - 01 zombie, 042 survivor - NO Generator/EHB Barricades
SW corner - 68 zombie, 001 survivor - NO Generator/Barricades/Ransacked

Pegrum Place PD

0 zombies, 80 survivors - Powered Generator/EHB Barricades

The Whitlock Building

1 zombie, 78 survivors - Unpowered Generator/HB Barricades

August 24th, 2007 - Murders have skyrocketed over the past few days, but that was expected and doesn't come as a surprise given the recent DORIS and Red Rum activity in the area. Reports continue to come in from various bounty hunters and groups, like the Knight Watchmen, who are actively hunting these killers in an attempt to thin their numbers. The one bit of bright news is the sudden resurgence of Dead vs Blue, which Officer Murphy claimed was due to DvB's need to settle their score with the remnants of the once mighty DORIS. We wish them luck in this noble endeavor.

August 8th, 2007 - Stickling Mall over in Shearbank has been attacked and is being overrun by LUE. To this the Alliance gives a collective shrug. After Stickling Mall they may very well come back or meander off in some other direction. Much like a headless chicken LUE's course is hard to predict so the Alliance prefers to err on the side of caution whenever dealing with a deadly zombie horde and just watch out for them. On the plus side, they're not here right now.

In other news DORIS is apparently still hanging around waiting for their "big day", but that's hardly newsworthy. Eventually they'll claim some odd victory and disappear, as is their way. In the meantime efforts have been made to execute as many DORIS members as possible before they disappear into the woodwork yet again. No doubt this will also lead to further murder claims by Druboo on the Rogues Gallery as she protests her innocence as a simple bounty hunter, even while her group affiliation clearly shows "DORIS". We continue to find her claims humorous.

August 2nd, 2007 - Alliance frontline guards from recon outposts in Rolt Heights have reported that very large mobs of zombies have started to flood into the suburb. This is without a doubt the LUE horde, a horde whose tactics include telling you they're not coming... only to then alert you via radio that they actually are coming. We lack words to define this line of logic. New ones would have to be invented.

The Burchell Arms Regulars, allies of the Alliance, have been alerted to the LUE threat, but were already in the midst of preparing anti-LUE defenses so they should be on good terms should any zombies foolishly attack the Burch'. In advance of the outcome of this conflict the Alliance predicts that the DDT will claim this as some sort of victory. We can hope they have more class than to take credit for another horde's work, but we don't think so. The bets are in...

July 30th, 2007 - Word has it the LUE is coming for Treweeke Mall, having recently (almost) smashed Dowdney Mall over in nearby Santlerville. This zombie horde is well known for their many successes in overrunning malls and as we seriously doubt telling them to bugger off will keep them out of Alliance territory we have instead opted to officially announce: "BRING IT ON!".

This will no doubt be a glorious battle with many casualties and as LUE roughly outnumbers the Alliance membership 3-to-1 we highly recommend that each member kill at least 3 zombies for every time that they are killed in order to even things out, just don't ask us how.

July 26th, 2007 - Rumors have been flying around that Red Rum has teamed up with the remnants of DORIS to attack Dulston. Unfortunately as Dulston has always been a hub for murderous activity it is hard to gauge whether recent sightings are related to this rumored event. While the Dulston Alliance is somewhat busy dealing with the current zombie influx our spokesperson had this to say, "DORIS? Didn't they all die off or something? I heard their leader jumped off a cliff and the rest followed, lemming-style. Nah, I'm just pulling your leg. Odd to hear they're back though, as we keep tabs on most of those buried in our graveyard and none of them have stirred in ages. See, we have gravestones for Crotchshot, mpaturet, Mr Sheriff, Nagome, and a bunch of others. If they are back though I'm sure Shotgun Ed will be happy, he sure loved executing DORIS members. Always put a smile on his face."

July 20th, 2007 - A press conference at Treweeke Mall was held to announce that King Murek's Army has as of today joined the Dulston Alliance and in doing so has shown their support for greater survivor unity within the NE Corner. As zombie troubles continue to stir within east-Pescodside their help and that of the Alliance will be needed in the days to come. Survivors are reminded to report zombie sightings and killers to the Alliance in order to help secure a safer tomorrow.

July 17th, 2007 - With Maris Viridis having only just disappeared from Dulston yesterday it now appears that DORIS may have returned. This rumor has been attributed to Canderous Ordo, a member of this infamous(ly crazy) group of killers. Not since the Dulston Alliance drove DORIS from the NE Corner have they been seen in any significant numbers as many of their original members are shown as retired/dead. Whether this is just "smoke and mirrors" has yet to be seen, but the Knight Watchmen and Dulston Alliance bounty hunters are keeping an eye out for them.

July 8th, 2007 - While many survivors celebrated Biertag over in Rolt Heights zombie troubles still brewed in Dulston and in a somber turn of events the Pescodside Defense Alliance (PDA) have decided to depart from the Dulston Alliance. Their reason was that they felt they could not afford to assist other suburbs when their own suffered from zombie attacks so often. Instead they intend to focus all their efforts on ridding Pescodside of its zombie menace. The Alliance, while disheartened to see a member group depart its ranks, wished them all the best on their great endeavor.

June 29th, 2007 - On this fateful day a new treaty was signed between the Dulston Alliance and The Abandoned. While the survivors aligned with The Abandoned are situated in Yagoton, as one of Malton's premiere survivor groups the Alliance believes it is in everyone's interests to establish diplomatic relations. As such, a Non-Aggression Pact was signed and in a surprising gesture The Abandoned even offered to assist the Alliance with its zombie "problem" once they had finished off the ones in their suburb. Now there's an offer that's hard to refuse.

June 22nd, 2007 - During the seven day bloodbath the Dulston Alliance and its allies, the Burchell Arms Regulars, achieved over 63 confirmed kills of St. Anastasius' Royal Guard clones. While the threat posed by the clones was minimal the response was a message to all survivors that such abominal tactics would never be permitted with Alliance territory. Now that Operation Cleansing Wave has ended members return to their regular duties.

June 19th, 2007 - The slaughter of St. Anastasius' Royal Guard clones has continued into its 4th day now with the execution count reaching 44 confirmed kills, and probably a dozen or so more unconfirmed kills. In a twist of fate, Maris Viridis has claimed they are not allies with SARG and in fact will assist with hunting down SARG clones. SARG in turn has declared that Maris Viridis is now its enemy. While the gang war with Maris Viridis has not ended the Dulston Alliance is more than happy to let both groups fight each other while it concentrates on SARG for the time being.

June 18th, 2007 - Coverage of the inept buffoonery now commonly associated with St. Anastasius' Royal Guard and the clean-up operation for what is now being called the Farbrother Farce was sidelined as the Alliance stepped forward to announce far more important news.

As of today it should be known that a Non-Aggression Pact was formally signed with The Grove. Members of the Alliance have always considered the Grove their friends ever since the days when they last visited the area during the Grove Tour. The Alliance looks forward to working together again in the near future.

June 17th, 2007 - Barely 3 days after the Farbrother War started it has been claimed that the war has ended. Unlike the level battlefield set by the PKer Alliance during the Rolt Heights War, the Farbrother War was marred by the controversial use of clones by St. Anastasius' Royal Guard who used these inexperienced mass-produced abominations to overwhelm several buildings in Pescodside. Thus proving that their so-called victories were nothing more than hollow lies. Maris Viridis was indicated as a supporter of SARG, but we can all only hope that they were unaware of their allies' underhanded tactics.

June 16th, 2007 - The so-called Farbrother War initiated by St. Anastasius' Royal Guard against the survivors of Pescodside has taken a turn for the lame. Where once this murderous killing spree was being treated as nothing more than another, in a long line of, terrorist cell nuisances, recent information has come to light proving that there is something far more sinister underway. Rumors abound that the members of SARG are in fact... clones! A recent sighting shows several "Kevin###" clones (Kevin001, Kevin003, Kevin014, Kevin015, Kevin016, ect) working alongside several other inexperienced clones. The Burchell Arms Regulars and the Dulston Alliance have both declared they will work together to deal with this menace once and for all, no matter what shady tactics the SARG chooses to employ. Also a formal report was issued against this incident.

June 14th, 2007 - After three weeks of intense negotiations, what started off as a simple renewal of old treaties between the Malton Fire Department, Malton Civil Defense Unit, and the Dulston Alliance ended with a Non-Aggression Pact being signed with the entire Department of Emergency Management. As such, on this very day, the Dulston Alliance and the DEM are formally considered allies in the struggle against zombies and murderers. What this alliance will have in store for the NE Corner has yet to be seen, but local survivors are optimistic that this is yet another nail in the coffin of their enemies.

June 13th, 2007 - While zombies continue to stumble around eastern Dulston at Treweeke Mall survivors gathered to witness a historic diplomatic ceremony as the Dulston Alliance and the U.S. Army Infantry signed an official Support Accord treaty. Exact details of the treaty are unclear, but what has been learned is that the USAI has committed an entire platoon to render aid to the Alliance should it be required and the Alliance in turn has promised to lend the support of its Joint Task Force to the USAI should they call for support. When asked to comment noted NecroTech scientist, Caleb Usher, had this to say, "I'm not saying this alliance will lead to the utter annihilation of all zombies in Northeast Malton, but I'm certainly not saying that it won't."

June 11th, 2007 - Ever since the Battle of Santlerville ended the Alliance has discussed expanding its influence beyond the NE Corner by forming a new mobile combat unit. As such, in order to meet alliance obligations and provide support to other survivor groups the Mobile Joint Task Force was created. This force is composed primarily of military personnel from Metal Fox and combat medics from DITPS, although other member groups have agreed to supply additional forces from their groups as required.

June 5th, 2007 - In what can now be termed "Classic Maris Viridis", the group of small-time killers have yet again handed out more laughs (at their expense) than kills. Recently a member of their group, Officer Mo, approached Metal Fox and requested to join them in an effort to avoid further persecution under Alliance Law. While the matter was being considered SgtBop, leader of Maris Viridis, learned of this and declared that... get this... the Alliance was "stealing" its members. Yes, apparently playground rules are in full force as far as this band of ruthless killers are concerned. As such, the Alliance has "called dibs on Dulston". This should now force Maris Viridis to leave the suburb or face further ridicule from the elementary school peers.

UPDATE: It has been learned that earlier claims that SgtBop was upset over the departure of Officer Mo have been denied. In truth the entire news post should be deleted, if not for the awesome wordsmithing that went into it. But for the official record, Officer Mo is leaving Maris Viridis, but SgtBop does not care. I mean, he plans on killing Officer Mo, but that's not really news when you think about it.

June 1st, 2007 - The Dulston Alliance gathered at Treweeke Mall for a somber occasion as they commemorate the end of an era for one of the Alliance's founding groups. The Dulston Defense Death Squad (DDDS) was granted full honors by the city council as the DDDS were recorded within Malton's Historical Archive so later generations could learn about them. Whether one agreed or disagreed with the DDDS' harsh anti-zombie policies, one had to respect them for what they had managed to accomplish in the suburb of Dulston. Let us not forget them.

May 26th, 2007 - Word has reached Dulston that the Battle of Santlerville is finally over and it was a glorious victory for our survivor brethren! The RRF have declared their campaign against the suburb's defenders a loss and are retreating. The Alliance's expeditionary force to aid Santlerville, composed of elements from both Metal Fox and DITPS, intend to stay a few extra days to help clean-up any straggling zombies and confirm the declared defeat is not a clever zombie ruse. After that they will return to Dulston and assist with the growing zombie problem.

May 25th, 2007 - With all the paperwork properly filled out and filed by Caleb Usher the Dulston Alliance has officially declared war on Maris Viridis, a small-time group of murderers who hide in northern Dulston (i.e. the Perryn Building). The Black List has since been updated to include most, if not all, of the group's members. Interestingly, as an ironic twist of fate, most of Maris Viridis was wiped out back on May 7th in a Red Rum "hit" because at that time the group still professed themselves to be bounty hunters. Now that's what I call classic.

May 24th, 2007 - There are currently two zombie groups operating in Dulston at this time: The Infected Swarm and The Plague. The first group apparently plans to stay and considers the Dulston Alliance its enemy. To which the Alliance's official response is a sarcastic: "What, can't zombies and survivors just be friends?". The Plague, on the other hand, is only here to attack Treweeke Mall on the last leg of their own tour. They are a well-coordinated, but small, zombie group. Be on the look-out for them, but note that unlike the Infected Swarm they are not death cultists.

In other news Red Rum is apparently holding the Battle Royale in Dulston. Survivors should expect to see a lot of murderers and bounty hunters killing each other over the next while. Hopefully locals will not be dragged into this contest.

May 18th, 2007 - A single bugle played as the standard for The Last Stand lowered over Treweeke Mall from where it hung atop one of several flag poles among the other standards of the Dulston Alliance member groups. Jack Sorrows, former leader of the survivor group, was there to accept his group's standard and signal the end to an era. It was a sad day for Pescodside as another survivor group passed away into history. Those remaining members of The Last Stand, under private agreement, had joined with the Pescodside Defense Alliance so that they could continue the fight and aid the NE Corner even though their group was no more. Fight on brave soldiers, fight on.

May 9th, 2007 - With great fan-fair and much celebration, the Dulston Alliance today welcomed its newest member group, Metal Fox, into the Alliance. Known for their sudden rise to power, Metal Fox assisted survivors in both Rolt Heights and Pescodside. Designated spokesperson and noted NecroTech scientist, Caleb Usher, had this to say to those present at Treweeke Mall, "Today the Dulston Alliance has taken yet another step forward to securing peace and prosperity for all living, breathing humans in Northeast Malton. NecroTech welcomes all survivor alliances which strengthen the NE Corner of Malton." It should be noted that with the inclusion of Metal Fox the Dulston Alliance now holds a firm presence in Rolt Heights, where before it only deployed random patrols into the suburb.

May 7th, 2007 - The Dulston Destruction Tour continues to putter around... doing stuff no doubt. Actually they've helped alleviate some of the boredom the plagues Dulston more than any zombie menace ever could. Local survivors are encouraged to get out and enjoy a hearty round of "zombie hunting" without the need to wander countless blocks to "flush out" a zombie or two, at least while they last. Hopefully this will also mean fewer RP kills; as seriously, killing undead survivors is a serious social faux pas.

May 2nd, 2007 The Rolt Heights War has officially ended. As such, all Dulston Alliance members assisting in the clean-up should be ready to report back to their normal duties after a few days as any straggling murderers are taken care of by Alliance bounty hunters.

April 20th, 2007 - The so-called Dulston Destruction Tour has come to the attention of the Alliance. While only a minor threat, in and of itself, it does remind us that Mall Tour '07 has ended and zombies will be looking for trouble. The NE Corner has been very green (safe) for some time now and it is not impossible our suburbs may become the target of zombie mobs. As such plans are being made to counter, or at least mitigate the impact of, this looming threat.

April 18th, 2007 - The Alliance has come to the conclusion that this has gone on far enough. As such, RCDC, the Friends of the Featherstone Library, and most recently Dead vs Blue, have been mobilized to start counter-operations to deal with the PKer Alliance. This includes an alliance with the Burchell Arms Regulars. All murderers found during recon missions are to be reported and executed.

April 8th, 2007 - The PKer Alliance have started the Rolt Heights War in the suburb of the same name. The member groups of this murderous organization have been targeting all survivors in Rolt Heights regardless of group affiliation. The suburb's various survivor groups, in particular the Burchell Arms Regulars, have been fighting back. At this time the Alliance will do what it can to restrict the PKA's access to suburbs under our stewardship.

April 6th, 2007 - Times change and as new member groups joined the Dulston Alliance the matter of the Sacred Ground Policy was once again revisited. The policy, which the Alliance opposed ever since the "NT Massacre" last year, was voted on once more. This time though support for the policy was much stronger resulting in the policy being reinstated as standard group policy. As of this day Alliance members are advised to treat cemeteries as revive points.

March 9th, 2007 - As new member groups join the Alliance, so to do older groups pass on. Today local survivors spread the word that the survivor group, BLACKOUT, had been officially disbanded. While the group's heyday had long since passed and their membership had been in steady decline since, the members of the Alliance tip their collective hats to those survivors who had once been among their most loyal and bravest fighters.

March 8th, 2007 - The Dulston Alliance welcomes two new members groups into the Alliance. The Electric Light Torchestra and the Dulston Infection Treatment and Prevention Squad (D.I.T.P.S.) are recognized for the vital services they provided during the Mall Tour's siege of Dulston. Whether administering medical aid or maintaining powered generators at NecroTech facilities, both groups showed exemplary action. All members of the Alliance are asked to welcome its newest members with open arms and a renewed sense of purpose in our struggle against "zombie oppression".

March 2nd, 2007 - Thanks to the efforts of the Alliance members and local survivors Treweeke Mall has been retaken. Survivors are asked to return to the mall in order to help replenish the ranks of its defenders in order to prevent the possibility that another zombie group might try to take advantage of the mall's weakened state.

March 1st, 2007 - Mall Tour '07 has left the NE Corner and are moving onto their next mall target. At this time the primary goal is to revive the fallen and replenish survivor numbers in Dulston. Once this task in underway efforts will be made to re-secure the Whitlock Building, the Waish Building (in Pescodside), and Pegrum Place PD which fell into zombie hands yesterday. After that guerilla tactics will be used to reclaim Treweeke Mall.

This is the current occupancy at Treweeke Mall, according to recent radio broadcasts. These statistics will be updated from day to day as the situation develops (17:49 GMT, 1 March 2007):
8 Zombies
0 Survivors
15 Zombies
0 Survivors
13 Zombies
0 Survivors
8 Zombies
0 Survivors

February 26th, 2007 - Mall Tour '07 has assaulted Treweeke Mall with their unbridled full-force. All members of the Dulston Alliance are called on to defend the mall at all costs, but should the barricades be breached and all hope lost, do not die in vain. If Treweeke Mall is overwhelmed members are to fall back to the nearest standing NecroTech facility, with the Whitlock Building being the primary fall back point.

In order to help inspire camaraderie among his fellow survivors in these troubled times Caleb Usher created and distributed a new Alliance recruitment poster throughout the suburbs of the NE Corner. A copy of this poster can be found right here.

February 15th, 2007 - The Devenish Rangers have disbanded and thus departed from the Dulston Alliance. It is unclear at this time as to the reason for the group's disappearance, but there is hope that some of the group's members may join other survivor groups in the Alliance to shore-up its ranks again. This has been a public service announcement from noted NecroTech scientist, Caleb Usher.


December 26th, 2006 - The Alliance has swept aside most of the local zombie resistance. The battle in Dulston is now with groups of PKers such as DORIS, a new group that has sprung up called The Myrmidons, and a number of DORIS alts and sympathizers. There are still significantly more Dulston Alliance members than all these groups combined so they have not been able to gain a stable foothold in the Greater Dulston area. --Shotgun Ed 10:55am (CST)

November 14th, 2006 - The Alliance has kept Dulston and its surrounding suburbs extremely safe the past few weeks. They have also put aside their differences with the Shamblin' Crooners and now are looked at as a rare form of entertainment in Dulston. The only problems in the suburb at the moment are the occasional feral zombies and PKers. Or specifially the group known as DORIS. --Officer Murphy 07:12pm (CST)

November 5th, 2006 – The infamous, some might say "infamously insane", group of cold-blooded killers from DORIS have begun to stalk through Dulston murdering survivors at random. DORIS has made its typical crazy threatening demands, which as always simply serve as an excuse for them to kill people. The Dulston Alliance will not stand for this sort of nonsense (obviously). Hunting parties have been formed to recon and execute any DORIS members in the area.

October 5th, 2006Dulston is operating normally and break-ins are minimal, but the Shamblin' Crooners have returned to the suburb. Also the number of local survivors is nowhere near pre-Big Bash levels. As such, the Alliance is calling out to all Dulstonians to return home. Remember to contact members of the Alliance should anyone need a revive or some help. --JP 20:31, 5 October 2006 (BST)

September 26th, 2006 - Treweeke Mall has been retaken from the horde. Revives for Duport Avenue are just now getting back into full swing and the suburb is on its way back to restoring order under survivor control.

September 12th, 2006 - After a week of intense combat Treweeke Mall has finally fallen to the Big Bash! This was a tragic loss for the Alliance as most of its member groups were involved in this battle and suffered an 80-90% casualty rate once the mall fell. At this time the Alliance can only recoup its losses by recovering its lost forces. All remaining (live) members are asked to regroup at the secret rendezvous location. From there counter-insurgency plans will be launched.

September 4th, 2006 - The Big Bash zombie horde has finally arrived in Dulston! As the entire suburb moves into red alert status survivors were reminded to head to Treweeke Mall in an orderly fashion and follow the tactical plans laid forth by the Dulston Alliance. The mall will serve as the main headquarters for all Alliance groups as we fight the horde.

September 3rd, 2006 - As preparations are under way to fortify the area against the oncoming zombie horde, The Big Bash, some time was put aside to welcome a new member group to the Dulston Alliance. The Last Stand, a survivor group from Pescodside, has joined and will stand strong against the zombies when they invade.

July 27th, 2006 - The Dulston Alliance formally welcomes the Devenish Rangers as its newest member group. The Devenish Rangers, a survivor group situated two suburbs south in Dunningwood, will enable the Alliance to continue spreading its sphere of influence into other suburbs beyond Dulston. Perhaps, with enough members, the entire NE Corner may one day be secured.

July 4th, 2006 - Fighting was intense, but the RRF have started to pull out of Dulston. As their horde retreats word is spreading that they plan to move their battle of Rolt Heights. While the Dulston Alliance has no official claim to this suburb, as it has no member group stationed there, we have deemed it in the best interests of all survivors to send in support forces to aid them in their struggle against the RRF.

June 26th, 2006 - In the midst of the conflict a new survivor group, BLACKOUT, has joined with the Dulston Alliance in its fight to rid the area of the RRF. Once again the ranks of the Alliance swell as new blood joins to further the organizations goals of a survivor united NE Corner. Let us all take a moment from hacking zombies to welcome these brave soldiers into our ranks... there, now returning to slaughtering RRF zombies.

June 20th, 2006 - The RRF have invaded the NE Corner, and at this time are ransacking buildings along the northern edge of Dulston. The Dulston Alliance has rallied its forces and plans to meet the RRF with its own counter-insurgency force. Fighting has already started and will not stop until the Alliance has driven the RRF from the streets of Dulston.

June 11th, 2006 - Having marshaled its forces against them, the Dulston Alliance has shattered the zombie group, Dead Rain. Under constant attack from the Alliance, Dead Rain has disbanded and most of its former members have left Dulston in search of a more zombie infested suburb, bar those few remnants who are either feral zombies now or non-affiliated survivors. After the "NT Massacre" the Alliance will not forgive anyone who tries to raise the standard of Dead Rain ever again.

May 19th, 2006 - Less than a day after the public alert, Dead Rain has struck. Reports show they hid their members at Dulston's lone cemetery, commonly deemed an unofficial revive point, and thus were able to avoid notice. Both northeast NT buildings were overrun with 100% survivor casualty rate. Deemed a security risk from this day forward the Dulston Alliance no longer recognizes the Sacred Ground Policy and its members have the right to cleanse all cemeteries of zombies.

May 18th, 2006 - A new zombie group has been discovered in Dulston called Dead Rain. They are mainly a Brain Rot zombie group that uses zombie spies to confirm their targets and weaken a building's defenses from the inside. Dead Rain has been sighted at official revive points around Dulston, gathering their strength before attacking vital resource buildings. It's believed that Dead Rain is responsible for the deadly "Dulston Towers Attack" from a month ago. As such, all members are to be on their guard, especially in the northeast corner of the suburb.

April 8th, 2006 - Today the Friends of the Featherstone Library, a survivor group whose safehouse happens to be the Featherstone Library in Pescodside, have joined the ranks of the Dulston Alliance. With there excellent assassin hunting skills (honed from years of wargaming), thick (fake?) British accents, and booksmarts the zombies had better watch out! As a condition of membership though the Alliance had to agree to return any overdue books its members had checked out during or prior to the "Malton Incident".

March 8th, 2006 - The Dulston Alliance officially recognizes the Dulston Defense Death Squad (DDDS) and the local Malton Fire Department (MFD) contingent forces stationed in Dulston, as new member groups who have chosen to join the Alliance. That raises the Dulston Alliance to six member groups.

March 6th, 2006 - A new death cult calling itself The End has appeared within Dulston. Lead by Appleyard and co-leader Phish Dude, the cult has already declared open war on the Dulston Defense Death Squad. In response the DDDS has categorized the cultists as priority targets, meaning that they are to be eliminated on sight and without warning.

FOXHOUND, speaking on behalf of the Dulston Alliance, has openly stated that the Alliance will see to: "THE END of the End". All alliance members are hereby granted full clearance to kill these cultists on sight.

March 2nd, 2006 - As word of the Dulston Alliance spreads several groups have already stepped forward to join the newly-forged survivor organization. FOXHOUND, Special Air Service (SAS), and The Safety Patrol have pledged to uphold the ideals presented by the mutually beneficial alliance. Also the groundwork for a suburb-wide coordination of zombie hunting patrols may soon follow as Dead vs Blue works towards establishing its tactical operations center. Rumors have it the this joint patrol might extend beyond the borders of Dulston into neighboring Rhodenbank, Rolt Heights, and Pescodside in an effort to eliminate or contain zombie mobs outside Dulston before they can menace the suburb.

February 27th, 2006 - On this glorious day the survivor organization known as the Dulston Alliance is born by the hand of the survivor group, Dead vs Blue. Efforts begin in earnest to secure member groups from among Dulston's other local survivor groups. Together they will work towards securing peace and prosperity with the NE Corner. So let us raise up our axes so we may slaughter the undead, and take up our shovels that we may bury them once they're truly dead. For the Alliance foresees a day when the dead will stay buried, and on that day it will be by the hand of the Alliance that the zombie menace is halted once and for all.
