Basic Information

The Elson Building Caretakers are a group of survivors who maintain the Elson Building (25,3) and keep it at constant EHB to maintain the local mobile phone network. To support this effort, the Caretakers have expanded their area of operation to include the Elson Environs - a total of six buildings and a cemetary in the Elson area. These locations are:

Because this area may be larger than the small group of caretakers can handle when times get tough, the buildings are placed in the order that the caretakers will use to prioritize support. As the group grows, so will support.

Note also that the Caretakers will lend a hand to all within the surrounding area. Thus, while The Milnerr Building is outside our support area, we never the less provide barricading and electrical services whenever possible.

Pay it forward

This group supports the idea of "paying int forward" (check out Pay It Forward). In other words when we stand up from a revive, we will try to revive at least one other person waiting in the revive queue. This allows a single revive to ripple through the queue, greatly increasing the numbers of revives that can be performed and reducing the time to wait for a revive.

In addition, we encourage all low-level characters to carry lots of FAKS. First aid kits are the fastest way for a low-level character to gain XP. We encourage supporting low-level characters by asking for FAKS and reporting seriously injured characters to anyone who does not have Diagnosis. On the other hand, we do not want infections running through an area - everyone should always carry at least 2 FAKS to help cure an infection if they get one. Sid1138 19:04, 29 May 2008 (BST)

May 22nd

Elson and the surrounding area has finally been taken back by survivors and is recovering its former glory. The lights are turning on, the zombie menance is under control and we have had a chance to regroup. Next comes cleaning up the area and recruiting people to the cause of caring for Elson and the surrounding blocks.

So far, the end of spring is looking better than the beginning. -- Sid1138 04:23, 23 May 2008 (BST)

March 24th

Some say March comes in like a lion. I say March comes in like a zombie. March was a difficult month for the Caretakers, but the end of the month is looking better. We have recovered Elson and the surrounding areas of interest. Elson is currently powered and there is no one at the revive point.

The question is -how long can these quiet times last? -- Sid1138

Unfortunately MoB took over the building during their raid of Quarlesbank, currently the caretakers are regrouping and preparing to take the building back while re-populating the suburb. Anyone wishing to help is advised to sign up and join in the fun! Acoustic Pie 19:56, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

February 23rd

The Building is back in the caretaker's hands! Hurray, but Extinction seem as though they are going to be determined to take back the suburb as their 'cornerstone' of the Extinction zone. The caretakers are not willing to see this happen and will do everything in their power to stop it. For now though, humans are in control. Acoustic Pie 17:05, 23 February 2008 (UTC)
