Roftwood is a suburb of Malton located just east of the city center. It contains Hildebrand Mall as well as plenty of Tactical Resource Points (TRPs).
It lies within District SE-2. Its proximity to Ridleybank, immediately northwest, can make it hostile territory for survivors.
But the presence of Hildebrand Mall, Woodroffe Mall in Tollyton to the south, Tynte Mall north in Pimbank, and Nichols Mall in Stanbury Village to the west, make it easy to defend and rebuild during and after zombie incursions.

Visitor's Guide

AquaCompass.jpg

Welcome to Roftwood!

Greetings visitor, Roftwood has much to offer and we hope you enjoy your visit and hope you stay with us!

The bulk of the activity in Roftwood takes place at and around Hildebrand Mall. There you can find vital supplies such as firearms, ammunition, first-aid kits and generators. You can also socialize with fellow survivors over an ice-cold beer.

If you are injured, you are advised to go to either Eligius General Hospital (65,54) or St. Ethelbert's Hospital (66,50), where you'll receive medical care from the doctors and surgeons there. Scientists will be able to manufacture revivification syringes, access the NecroTech database and find other useful NecroTech equipment inside both the Herbert Building and the Greenhow Building. Due to the large number of buildings in Roftwood, every resource building is accessible via a free-running lane.

Generators are best found at Hildebrand Mall's hardware store but there are also four factories in the Roftwood that may be searched. Fuel and spray cans are more readily available at the four auto repair shops, the main one of which is Maiden Auto Repair, located just one block northwest of the Herbert Building. Flak jackets and ammunition can be found at Rawlins Row Police Dept, adjacent to the southeast corner of the mall.

If you prefer somewhere quieter than the bustle of Hildebrand Mall and its surrounding complex then you should visit western Roftwood. Western Roftwood serves as Roftwood's defense line due to the three police departments located there, which are optimally spaced from each other. Western Roftwood also has The Greenhow Building (an NT facility) and has an easy access to Nichols Mall in the adjacent suburb of Stanbury Village. Note that the area is usually heavily barricaded and can only be accessed by free running and via specific safehouses and entryways/entry points (EPs) such as Blunden Row School (61,50) and the Whale Building (60,53).

Connecting western Roftwood to the mall complex are the Summer Building (64,55), the Wrench Hotel (64,56) and factory (63,55). The Summer Building holds Roftwood's mobile phone mast and therefore is always kept Extremely Heavily Barricaded, however the factory serves as an entryway and should always be accessible by survivors. The Wrench Hotel is the only hotel in Roftwood. It is close to the major buildings in the suburb (only two steps away from Hildebrand Mall and Eligius General Hospital). But since it is not a Tactical Resource Point, it is a low-priority target for zombies, and thus a safe and convenient place in which to spend the night.

Revive Points

AquaReviv.jpg

Roftwood has two NecroTech (NT) facilities, the Herbert NT Building (32,51) in the northwest of the suburb and the Greenhow NT Building (68,54) in the east.

Revive.gif Revivification Requests
Undead? Want to breathe again?
Make a Revivification Request!

Roftwood doesn't have any cemeteries within its boundaries. There are two monitored revive points (RPs) in Roftwood: Turpin Road (61,51), which is one block west of the Greenhow NT Building, and Swansborough Park (68,53), one block north of the Herbert NT facility. Swansborough is generally where the quickest revives may be had.

Radio and Cell Phone

AquaRadio.jpg
Cell Service. The transmitter for the Maltel cell-phone network is located in the Summer Building, which should be kept powered and at EHB at all times.

Roftwood Radio. Survivors in Roftwood are welcome and encouraged to use radio to transmit information of importance to survivor welfare. Typical topics include (but are not limited to): the whereabouts of zeds, locations where break-ins have occurred, and the location of victims requiring first aid assistance. The frequency to tune to when in Roftwood are 26.03MHz Keeping radio transmitters operational in the district is a priority due to the instability in the region (because of the regular attacks from the zed capital to the northwest, Ridleybank).

2019

November 7th - The first organized effort by the Roftwood Coordination Center to reclaim Eligius General Hospital has ended in death and ruin. Initially, survivors were able to clear out the zombies, repair the devastation, and rebuild barricades. However within short time, the Ridleybank Resistance Front struck and shattered the hospital, killing all survivors inside and reducing the building back to ruin. --ZombGG (talk) 12:07, 8 November 2019 (UTC)
November 4th - Survivors are still recovering from the massive blow over Halloween night. As the Swansborough Park revive point clears, the Roftwood Coordination Center attempts a rebuilding effort and reports eerie graffiti inside many of the ruined buildings deeming the suburb "New Ridleybank". Survivor presence is low throughout the area and breaths are cut short by the Flowers of Decay. TRPs are being rebuilt, but not populated and are quickly returning to ruins by zombies from the Ridleybank Resistance Front. --ZombGG (talk) 21:37, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
November 1st - Overnight a lightning strike by combined zombie and PKer forces has devastated several key locations in Roftwood. Hildebrand Mall, The Herbert Building, Eligius General Hospital, Maiden Auto Repair and St Ethelbert's Hospital have all fallen, with fatalities now believed to number more than sixty. The Ridleybank Resistance Front. Flowers of Decay, Syg Nok, Red Rum and Creedy Guerrilla Raiders have all been sighted. It remains to be seen what response will come from Roftwood Coordination Center, but right now Roftwood is one of the most dangerous places in Malton. --LordMoloch (talk) 12:56, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
October 23rd - Suburb status updated to dangerous as nearly 20+ zombies largely from the Ridleybank Resistance Front horde have made their presence in Roftwood from Vere Cinema, to the Herbert Building, to outside the SE corner of Hildebrand Mall. The Roftwood Coordination Center is buzzing with activity as pro survivors prepare to defend against the undead. --ZombGG (talk) 01:01, 24 October 2019 (UTC)
September 15th - Roftwood remains under fierce contest. The Ridleybank Resistance Front and numerous feral zombies have been active all across the suburb from the Greenhow Building to St. Ethelbert's Hospital (Roftwood) to Hildebrand Mall, zombies and survivors battle for back and forth for control of numerous TRPs. Presently a heavy concentration of both survivors and zombies are standing off at Hildebrand Mall's SW corner. --ZombGG (talk) 18:09, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
August 29th - The Constables have ruined the north west corner of Hildebrand Mall. Survivors are clashing against the zombies inside. --ZombGG (talk) 01:06, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
August 23th - The Constables are spotted by the Roftwood Coordination Center. The eastern side of the suburb is a hotbed for GKing and zombie break ins. Today the Herbert Building has finally been rebuilt and barricaded after days of zombie occupation. The suburb status has been updated to moderately dangerous. --ZombGG (talk) 04:26, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
August 1st - July was a dark month for the pro survivors in Roftwood. Nearly everyday was dark due to a heavy haunting by the Ridleybank Resistance Front. Today eastern Roftwood has many powered and barricaded buildings. The west is still contested - no powered buildings spotted. There is no significant zombie presence at the moment. --ZombGG (talk) 16:00, 1 August 2019 (UTC)
April 19th - After a five day-long assault by the forces of the Ridleybank Resistance Front, The Scourge, Syg Nok , Flowers of Decay and other roaming killers, the once thriving suburb of Roftwood has been devastated. Almost every building has been ruined and survivors of the initial onslaught have retreated into the surrounding areas to regroup. Occasional efforts have been made to sally back into the suburb, but on the whole Roftwood is eerily quiet, but for occasional gunfire and zombie groans. The suburb is now to be classed as 'Very Dangerous'. --LordMoloch (talk) 19:24, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

2018

November 29th - After the departure of The Scourge, the suburb has come under sustained assault by the Ridleybank Resistance Front. Key resources, including Hildebrand Mall, Eligius General Hospital and the Herbert Building have consistently been ruined and/or occupied for over a week now. With ruins spreading across the suburb and into neighbouring Edgecombe, danger status has been updated to 'Dangerous'. --LordMoloch (talk) 19:56, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
November 1st - The Scourge are once more ravaging Roftwood. Yesterday they had a smashing appearance at the Herbert Building and today they have breached Hildebrand Mall. Both spots are heavily contested. Survivors bring your FAKs because these zombies are bitey. --ZombGG (talk) 15:11, 1 November 2018 (UTC)
September 15th - NecroTech stock has sky rocketed this summer as Roftwood survivors can't seem to get their hands on enough of those precious NecroTech Revivification Syringes. Lives are short lived as intense fighting between the Roftwood Coordination Center and the Ridleybank Resistance Front continues rocking the suburb and packing the local Swansborough Park RP. --ZombGG (talk) 14:51, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
August 30th - Suburb remains focus of heavy combat. RRF with Gore Corps spearhead support involved in fierce fighting. Herbert NT sacked as of 8/29.

July 10th - Roftwood is still a battleground, with survivors facing overwhelming pressure from zombie forces, spearheaded by the Ridleybank Resistance Front. Groups associated with the Roftwood Coordination Center are fighting to recover ground, but with the Gore Corps bringing even more numbers into the suburb, the wave of destruction appears to be spreading out from Hildebrand Mall to the rest of the suburb. --LordMoloch (talk) 22:41, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
July 6th - Hildebrand Mall and the local resource buildings have come under sustained attack by zombie forces. The mall, Herbert NT and several other buildings have been sacked by the Ridleybank Resistance Front's Gore Corps. --LordMoloch (talk) 01:27, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
June 29th - 25.96 MHz: "... Roftwood is still active, about forty on the streets ... a horde of twenty or so outside the Herbert Building ... lights are on across the suburb ... some minor structural damage though ... Hildebrand Mall has power ..." --Emot-siren.gif LABIA on the INTERNET Emot-siren.gif Dunell Hills Corpseman The Malton Globetrotters#24 - You rated this wiki '1'! Great job, go hog wild!|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| TMG 06:32, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
February 23rd - The Northwest corner of Hildebrand Mall is presently under attack by a mob of 16 zombies. Intel gathered by the Roftwood Coordination Center concludes the mob is mostly feral, with a light mix of Ridleybank Resistance Front and The Scourge.
Aside from this action, Roftwood is enjoying peace after nearly four weeks of total war. It took the collective effort of local survivors, the Malton Medical Staff, the Roftwood Elite, ENVY, and the Malton Civil Defense Unit to keep The Scourge from dragging the suburb into complete ruin.
Today the suburb is powered, barricaded, and has a healthy survivor population. --ZombGG (talk) 18:04, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
February 3rd - Zombies again control all four corners of Hildebrand Mall. Survivors had briefly reclaimed the mall on the eve on January 31 in honor of the ten year anniversary of the famous Malton Medical Staff/Last Stand. They maintained authority until the later hours of last night. Tension had been building outside the SW corner for a couple days until finally a horde of ~25 zombies composed of both the Scourge and the Ridleybank Resistance Front busted in quickly laid ruin. The event has been the biggest of the new year for the suburb.
Never before in recent history have both zombie groups smashed the mall simultaneously nor have so many survivor groups banded together in defense of the SW corner of the mall. Both survivor and zombie factions had great turn out for what looks to be just another round in a series of ongoing "struggles for hildebrand mall". Records from this event are presently being compiled by the participants at the Roftwood Coordination Center, which is largely sponsored through the efforts of the Malton Medical Staff and Quartly Study Group, and will be released soon! --ZombGG (talk) 20:17, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
January 18th - Hildebrand Mall's north east and south west have been broken into and the doors have been ripped off, two zeds inside and much more outside. It seems they attacked from both sides as they have been reported in the masses outside Eligius General Hospital as well making me think that it will be there next building to fall in their conquest in Roftwood. Good luck survivors and allow strength of the gods be with you. Hildebrand Mall cannot fall!
January 17th - Roftwood is now unstable. From both the East and now the West there are zombies... Just overnight the famous long standing Herbert Building fell to the zombies spreading an increasing feel of distress within the district. With the regular raids in the East of Roftwood (mostly aimed at the hospitals) and now this new attack many of the residences have grown concerned for the numbers of zeds attacking in this area and whether there will be much more.
With Roftwood seemingly being attacked from both sides a great deal of the live population have found refuge in Hildebrand Mall because of it's high cades and resources... they know that they cannot allow it to fall they depend on it for food, shelter basic requirements as well as power.
Also today the Blackmore Bastard Brigade made their appearance on the Central Malton Radio statementing their intentions of pushing back the Ridleybank Resistance Front, which could give us some leeway here in Roftwood.
Catch you on Central Radio. --Tess Eks (talk) 11:47, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
January 11th - Roftwood has peace in the east and war in the west. Zombie leakage from the ruined neighboring suburb of Stanbury Village and it's Nichols Mall are causing chaos and destruction for western Roftwood, particularly centered around the Greenhow Building.
Survivors in the east are rallying at the Herbert Building and dutifully maintaining the revive point at Swansborough Park. The Hildebrand Mall has been under a minor siege since this past Christmas. Survivors are holding onto the mall making quick disposal of any zombie.
The Malton Medical Staff, Quartly Study Group, and Ridleybank Resistance Front are all quite active in Roftwood and are doing a wonderful job making this suburb a fun and interesting place to be.
This has been my monthly briefing. --ZombGG (talk) 00:32, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

Historical Events

AquaMonument.jpg

The Last Stand at St. Ethelbert's Hospital, January 10th 2008 - January 31st 2008 - The Last Stand of Roftwood was a battle between the Malton Medical Staff (MMS), Upper Left Corner (ULC), and the remaining survivors of Roftwood against the RRF and ferals. After systematically leveling the suburb building by building, the final building left was St. Ethelbert's Hospital, which came to be known as "That damn hospital that just won't fall". Though the battle was small in scope, the humourous conversation of the MMS and ULC made the event memorable.
Zombie Debates, November 15th 2006 - Mar 19th 2007 - In spacious Quartly Library, zombies and survivors debated matters such as zombie spies, strike teams and even love. After months of discussion, the zambahz had taught the harmanz about barhah, and fought for their safe-house like any survivor should.

Ricky Martin Concert, January 21st 2006 - The first ever Ricky Martin concert in Malton took place. The concert began on January 21st at Floyd Stadium in Barrville, according to several fliers and advertisements pasted on various buildings.

The Survivor Zone

Roftwood is an eastern district in the Survivor Security Zone (SSZ) and is one of the main suburbs within the Zone. The SSZ is an area incorporating most of central Malton. It was setup to ensure communication was established between groups of survivors living in the region. It was hoped that they might come together to coordinate plans of attack.

Additional Notable Locations

Barricade Plan

AquaBarricade.jpg

The Roftwood Barricade Plan is Uniform Barricading Policy (UBP) Compliant. It has a variety of VSB entry points and resource buildings, for easy access as well as new player spawning.
