Old Arkham is a suburb of Malton, located in the southwest of the city. Originally simply called Arkham, it served as a trading outpost during the 1800's and was a separate entity until Malton expanded and eventually engulfed Arkham. By the 1970s Malton expanded past Arkham's original borders - the area west was dubbed New Arkham, while the site of the original settlement became known as Old Arkham. Things were relatively quiet in Old Arkham up to the Outbreak. Zombies normally don't take much interest in Old Arkham because there simply aren't large amounts of survivors living here.

April 12th

The MOB has been through, but has moved on, and survivors have already reclaimed the suburb. All but a few darks plus two other bldgs are repaired; most TRPs are lit; and their is a good survivor presence. Not many zombies remain, though there are still many people waiting for revives in the RPs. --Solodog 20:48, 12 April 2011 (BST)


February 5th

The great suburb group massacre has been completed for this suburb. As such, Dr. schwan’s Research and Development Team, Miskatonic University Faculty, The Survivor's Republic, Betrayed and The Streltsy have been removed from the suburb listing. -- Spiderzed 14:36, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Recent Conditions in Old Arkham

  • Buildings: many buildings are barricaded in the range of VS-to-EHB; there are also a few buildings only secured by closed doors. To the eastern-most half of the suburb, particularly the south-eastern quarter, most buildings are ransacked or nearly unbarricaded. Staying overnight (logging off) in resource buildings is not advised as a general rule; in particular if there is no sustained maintenance from a group of dedicated survivors for the building in question.
Also, Miskatonic University has been reopened.
  • Zombie Activity: light-to-moderate, with small hordes of 5-6.
  • Survivor Strength: the suburb is currently categorized by small numbers of seemingly unaffiliated survivors strung throughout inhabitable buildings. The Reformed Old Arkham Republic (ROAR) is the largest and most organized survivor contingent active in the area. Those in need of assistance should contact ROAR.

Survivor specific information

Survivor groups

Note: inactive groups moved to Old Arkham - Inactive Groups. The information below can be POV.

Reformed Old Arkham Republic

The Reformed Old Arkham Republic (previously known as Old Arkham Republic, but under "new management") is dedicated to supporting survivors and eliminating zombies within the bounds of the suburb.

ROAR has never claimed ownership of any part of Malton, but has made Old Arkham its home -- in perpetuity. The Reformed Old Arkham Republic welcomes cooperation with other survivor groups, but asks that they respect the group's standing as the oldest and largest survivor organisation in the suburb.

The Damned

The Damned are a new group in Old Arkham. They are dedicated to making Old Arkham a safe place for zombie and survivor alike, and for rebuilding the infrastructure of the suburb.

Other survivor specific information

Revive Points

As of 22 August 2007, the Reformed Old Arkham Republic has adopted the use of indoor Revive Points. St Alda's Church (16, 96) and St. Neot's Church (13, 92) have been designated as Indoor Revive Points.

These buildings are to be left un-barricaded and are no-kill zones. Survivors and zombies alike are encouraged to assist in keeping these buildings barricade-free. Residents are also asked not to dump any bodies found inside these revive points, as these are likely to be revivified survivors. If you are seeking a revive and find yourself unable to enter a revive point, you may wait outside.

To request a NecroTech Technician's services, please make a request on the forum. Please know that ROAR members will be revived before non-members.

Zombie Groups

Note: inactive groups moved to Old Arkham - Inactive Groups. The information below can be POV.

Arkham Asylum Avengers

The Arkham Asylum Avengers are a zombie group comprised of former patients from the notorious Arkham Asylum, also known as St. Luke's Hospital (Old Arkham). Strongly drawn by indistinct yet compelling memories, the Arkham Asylum Avengers attempt, even in undeath, to return to their former "home".

New Zombham Armah

The New Zombham Armah was formed in August of 2007 for the purpose of creating a second zombie homeland in the New Arkham suburb.

Choosing the Mitchener Building as their HQ, the New Zombham Armah works to secure New Zombham (New Arkham) for future zombie kind. They also lay territorial claim to the Greater Zombham areas of Old Zombham (Old Arkham) and Shambles Village (Foulkes Village).

"You are lost in a maze of twisty passages, all alike...."

-- "Sorry, which St Daniel's Church was that, again?"

Sound familiar?

Finding your way in Old Arkham can be difficult sometimes. Some have speculated that time and space itself distort in Old Arkham. Most historians, however, note the suburb's long history of settlement and occupation as the reason for its sometimes disorientating urban physiognomy. Over the centuries, literally layers upon layers of architecture have been built here. Meanwhile, events such as floods, or the freakish Great Fire of 1912, destroyed large parts of Old Arkham. Many of these areas were later rebuilt. Old Arkham is a suburb whose ancient, dense, often contradictory and enigma-riddled history is reflected in its streets and its buildings.
