Welcome to The Crimson Clan wiki pages. This front page is made primarily for giving a brief introduction to us, and for recruitment information. If you're looking for more specific information, please have a look on the above subpages navigator.

Who are we?

The Crimson Clan is a survivor group, based in and around the suburb of Havercroft in central Malton. The Clan has declared the area surrounding Ackland Mall its domain, and intends to make life difficult for the local PKers and ferals. Due to the varying numbers of prey in central Clan domain, some squads are occasionally seen far into hostile territory.

We are divided into three divisions - the Marines, Home Guard, and Militia. The different divisions are organized very differently to work as efficiently as possible. Our doctors and NecroTechies are able to provide revives and heals whenever needed, while our soldiers bring swift death to the infected or corrupted.

The Crimson Clan has an official radio frequency of 27.50 MHz, and a forum for communications. Many Clan members make use of X:00 tactics.

Both veterans and newbies are welcome to join our ranks.

Why join us?

  • If you're new to the game, we'll help you become a high-level player through our Boot Camp.
  • If you're already a veteran, you'll get to play Urban Dead in a new way, in co-operation with many other players.
  • Our numbers are constantly rising. Not so very long ago, we were only a small, non-influential group. Now, The Crimson Clan is one of the more powerful groups in Malton.

As a Militia member

  • Very little metagaming: If you don't like forums, the Militia is the place for you.
  • No officers: Do whatever you want to, as long as it kinda benefits the Clan.
  • But still: You are part of a great survivor group, you have the opportunity to participate in competitions and operations, you have a "hometown", you have other players watching your barricades while you sleep, and you'll learn of the zombie hordes approaching before they strike. Also, don't forget to carry a radio tuned to 27.50 MHz!

As a Marine (Foxtrot squad)

  • Take a challenge: We expect you to become one of the finest and most disciplined soldiers in Malton.
  • Join Clan competitions: Every now and then, competitions are held in the Clan. We hold an annual bounty-hunting competition, which is normally good fun. This is just one of our range of games & competitions.
  • See Malton: The Marines are not only stationed in the Clan domain, but are also sent on missions far into hostile territory.
  • Metagaming: You need to check the forums at least every 1-2 days, although of course, you're free to be more active as you wish.
  • X:00 tactics: Several players logging on at the same time means a good opportunity for cooperation, plus a devastating effect in combat.
  • Meet new friends: The close cooperation of the Marines gives you the opportunity to make new friends.



NB - If you would like to join us, post a link to your UD profile here, and change your UD profile group tag to The Crimson Clan. Due to a newly-imposed rule, you must be active (ie. be in the Marines) or you may not join up. This is due to a problem we've found, in that new members default to militia membership and because they then have less reason to check the forum regularly, we never hear of them again!

General news

October 10th, '09

  • Foxtrot are now in the last few days of the afore-mentioned mission, known as Operation Talpidus Ridge, and information is now being released. It was to Molebank and the objectives were to repair & cade as many buildings as possible, leave the RP empty and generally aid the previously struggling locals. The mission has been very successful, with all the aims well within our range. Our new recruits also enjoyed their first official operation and have gained much useful experience in the process.

ErrorMaker still rules the Clan wisely, overcoming the hurdles placed in his path (don't tell him it was us who were trying to trip him up). Only very few days ago, there was an appalling spate of vandalism on the forums, in which an Admin's account was used to delete much of the forum and ban several members. It is not yet clear whether it was the Admin himself or whether someone else got access to his account. The incident is being investigated, however, and we hope to come to a satisfactory conclusion very soon. The forum has been repaired and the unpleasant event even managed to attract us some more publicity, leading to more members joining us - an eventuality I'm sure the said vandal hadn't anticipated! Anyway, it is time to sign off again, and remember please, if you're looking for a home away from home, where all is peaceful, calm and quiet... Don't come to us! Thanks and goodbye. --Jsrbrunty 22:44, 10 October 2009 (BST)

  • As Hyena resigns his successful post as commander, ErrorMaker is elected unanimously by the Leadership Team, who, due to the amount of unfinished leadership terms and elections recently, decided to vote only within the Team itself this time so as not to unsettle things again. May his reign be long and triumphant, may he not make any errors, and above all, may his famous harassment from the Typo Devil cease. Ackland Mall's resident groaning devils seem to be sleeping at present (please don't make any loud noises in the area) and the world-renowned shopping centre is safely barricaded and lit up. Foxtrot are currently resting there temporarily before setting out on another dangerous mission into unsettled territory. Information about the upcoming mission is guarded jealously, but sources say that it is likely to be towards one of the now few red suburbs on the map. Good luck to all involved, and please remember to be very quiet on the way out, as we don't want to wake the dead from their current slumber. --Jsrbrunty 22:56, 19 September 2009 (BST)

August 14th, '09

  • So far, Hyena has done a good job as deputy commander, in OJF's prolonged absence. He has just begun a new campaign to promote increased activity on the forum, and is also making several fundamental changes to the forum and the way the Clan works. The changes that affect the UD side of things are as follows:
  • Foxtrot & Novo are being merged. The feeling is that the 2 squads can work much more effectively as 1 unit than separately, and so this is how they will work, in the future. The resulting squad (the 2 former squads merged)'s name has not been decided yet.
  • The squad will need to be active. We've had a rule stating this before now, but now we intend to strictly inforce it.
  • The Militia will be closed to recruitment, and so you must be in the Marines (Foxtrot) or you may not join our group. This is due to a problem we've found, in that new members default to militia membership and because they then have less reason to check the forum regularly, we never hear of them again! We call it the 'black hole effect'.

Anyway, that's more or less it for now. Good luck and happy hunting! --Jsrbrunty 20:00, 14 August 2009 (BST)

August 7th, '09

  • Unfortunately, OJF's term as commander has not gotten off to a good start. Of all the times his internet could have chosen to stop working, it has chosen now. We do not blame OJF for this, and hope he will be back with us very soon, but have been forced to appoint a temporary commander for the duration of his absense. Hyena has been elected by the leadership team to take up the mantle - until OJF's net decides to work on a regular basis. The Clan's squads Foxtrot & Novo have recently been off on a mission called "Operation Colt Trooper", which started in Tollyton and moved on as Tollyton became safe.

July 22nd, '09

  • Due to reasons in his real life, Commander Legend has decided that it is necessary for him to step down from his newly-acquired post. Unfortunately, he feels he can no longer contribute a sufficient amount of time to the Clan to benefit the Clan. OJF has been promoted in his place. --Jsrbrunty 16:19, 22 July 2009 (BST)
