Basic Info:

  • Office buildings owned by the company often associated with the zombie outbreak. From the outside, they are indistinguishable from other buildings, but characters with the NecroTech Employment skill are able to recognise them.
  • Among the internal descriptions found in NecroTech Buildings:
    The NecroTech logo is set in the wall behind the front desk, and doors open onto powered-down computer rooms and laboratories."
  • If a generator is running inside the building:
    "The NecroTech logo glows gently above the front desk, and doors open onto a number of brightly-lit laboratories and computer rooms."
  • NecroTech offices are tall enough for survivors to commit suicide from. They also provide a vantage point from which binoculars can be used.
  • Necrotech Buildings can be barricaded normally.

The Dewes Building is a NecroTech facility located in the suburb of Santlerville. Staff at this building commonly revive zombies at nearby revive points. Being adjacent to Dowdney Mall ensures the Dewes Building has a plentiful supply of resources and survivors to maintain the building's equipment and facilities. It works in partnership with the only other NecroTech Facility in the suburb, The Hall Building and plays a key role in the revivification of unfortunate survivors recently turned into zombies. The building is actively maintained by ensuring a generator is installed in the building and it is fueled in order to allow NecroTech Syringes to be manufactured (or found) and to allow use of the NecroTech computer for a local view of the zombie population with NecroNet Access. Restocking and refueling the Dewes Building requires just a quick trip to the mall next door.

Reminder to all survivors: For zombies that do manage to get into the Dewes Building, whereupon they are quickly killed, be sure to dump their bodys outside after killing them.

Members of project NecroWatch renovated the facility in recent months, as they installed sensor eyes for A.L.I.C.E. throughout the building and uploaded NecroNet 2.0 into the facility's system terminals.


NecroTech staff continue to follow directive 42-A, issued by the head office on January 19th 2006, with the activation and manufacture of MK-II revivification syringes. While the cost in time and effort are currently high the certainty provided by being able to manufacture a constant stream of syringes has mitigated early concerns.

The activation of NecroNet with all NecroTech buildings has also allowed scientists to apply the DNA tracking research they have gathered to date. The field research staff stationed at the Dewes Building feel certain that they can crack the mystery surrounding the spread of the virus as well as help monitor aberrant zombie activity within Santlerville.

Revivification Policy

We are happy that you have chosen to return to life from the undead. The nearest revive point to the Dewes Building is 2N, 4E at [76, 24] at The Finch Monument. Please go there to be revived, zombies should not stand on the block for the Dewes Building as this is regarded as an attack on the building and will be dealt with accordingly.

In order to speed up your revivification, please do one of the following:

Please only submit a revive request once and don't forget to include your name and a link to your profile.

Please respect the sacred ground rules for revive points that zombies waiting to be revived and survivors (either passing or doing the reviving) will not attack each other on the monument block revive point. This revive point is watched and transgressions will not go unpunished. The newly revived are advised to make their way to St. Columbanus's Hospital to restock on medical supplies.

Rotter Policy

Unfortunately, the Dewes Building does not usually help zombies who have Brain Rot (also known as rotters). This is a rather severe state of degeneration that makes revivification using simply NecroTech Syringes impossible.

All Zombies stood at the Finch Monument revive point will be DNA scanned to ensure they do not have brain rot. Those found to have this condition will be killed without warning.

By making a special request to the Dribbling Beavers on their forum (no sign-up/account needed) in some circumstances, the Dewes Building may be used to revive zombies with the Brain Rot condition. Special co-ordination will be required as the said zombie and a survivor needs to be active at the same time and help (AP) will be required from both parties to bring the building barricades down from EHB to allow the zombie inside and then to bring the barricades back up to EHB after the revivification.

For obvious reasons, revivification of zombies with Brain Rot cannot be done unless the suburb is relatively peaceful and the Dewes Building is under no threat from attack from other zombies. You'd better have a very good reason to want to be revived if you are a zombie with Brain Rot.

Barricade Policy

As this location is a Rot Revive clinic it should at all times be kept unbarricaded and powered, allowing the necessary access for the undead, and acting as a guaranteed entry-point for survivors. This is in accordance with the barricade plans set forth by local survivors, who routinely monitor the barricade level for this building. This building is meant to serve as a Brain Rot clinic for Malton's veteran zombie survivors, and thus requires the Free Running skill to be properly utilized as an entry-point.

NecroNet Reports

Zombie tracking reports are a free service provided by the NecroTech corporation to all its staff and local survivors in order to help facilitate quicker response times when managing zombie threats and to build a greater awareness of zombie migration patterns within the 9x9 block region around the Dewes Building. As a cautious reminder, only those zombies tagged with the DNA Extractor will appear on these scans, so actual numbers may vary when dealing with older zombies (i.e. Brain Rot).

Current Events

September 4th, 2009 - After resisting the siege valiantly for 5 days, with zombies kept coming, and survivors kept dying, the building finally collapsed. -- Kittithaj 21:20, 4 September 2009 (BST)

September 3rd, 2009 - The building was breached and retaken like a bloody tug-of-war. At the end of the day, it remains in human hands, with barricades and power up. The number of zombies is growing everyday. And the fate of the building is still uncertain. -- Kittithaj 20:57, 3 September 2009 (BST)

September 2nd, 2009 - The building was broken into by a dozen zombie. After a bloody battle, finally they were driven out again. But with the main bulk of the MOB moving in, and with the dwindling number of defenders, the question is, how long can it resist the constant siege like this? -- Kittithaj 19:49, 2 September 2009 (BST)

August 31st, 2009 - The building was broken into by about 15 zombies, the MOB vanguard, around midnight, Malton time. It was even reported as ruined at one point. But at the end of the day, the building stayed in human hands. -- Kittithaj 17:05, 31 August 2009 (BST)

August 16th, 2009 - After the Dead Bunnies left Santlerville, local survivors quickly recaptured, repaired, re-barricaded, and re-powered the building. It is now operational. -- Kittithaj 05:30, 17 August 2009 (BST)


News older than one month should be moved here.

June 30th, 2009 - A new siege has happened. Dewes building gave up a good fight, but in the end they lost. The Dewes Building currently has 40 zombies inside, with dozens of survivors. The zombie don't appear to be attacking, as only the doors are open, there is no generator, and barricades are down. If local survivor groups would get to the Dewes Building and get rid of them, we should be safe. All People in Dewes that think the building is no longer a safe place, go to the Hall Building. It is enter-able, and well barricaded. DEATH TO THE DEAD BUNNIES! -- Justinbronze 01:27, 1 July 2009 (BST)

June 21st, 2009 - The bloody and prolonged siege was finally lifted. The zombies, numbering from 50-80 during the siege, were all scattered, probably to find an easier target. The bravery of all defending survivors who fought and die in this battle will be remembered for a long time. -- Kittithaj 17:27, 21 June 2009 (BST)

March 31st, 2008 - Sacked by an overwhelming force of zombies looking to cut off supplies of syringes to Dowdney mall. The survivors fought bravely, but they were quickly outnumbered 5:1. They never really had a chance. -- Nitro378 18:09, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
