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 Sheppard Building is a NecroTech facility located in the suburb of East Boundwood. Though a faceless corporate structure to the uninitiated, this facility acts as the heart of R&D for NecroTech within the suburb. Staff at this building commonly revive zombies at nearby revive points. This facility is the only NecroTech facility to be found in the entire suburb, which greatly increases its tactical significance to local survivors seeking to hold back the undead plague. 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 Sheppard Building feel certain that they can crack the mystery surrounding the spread of the virus as well as help monitor aberrant zombie activity within East Boundwood.

Barricade Policy

This building's entrance should be clear at all times. This is in accordance with the barricade plans set forth by Necro Tech employees who currently operate the equipment. This building is meant to serve as a revive point for Malton's fallen survivors, and thus requires the entrance to be accessible to the dead. Survivors who find the building's barricades intact are asked to assist in lowering them in order to help ensure that the unfortunate survivors are given a second chance inside the building. Survivors should be aware that the building is accessible to the dead, and in effect may be dangerous.

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 Sheppard 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).
