The Malton Civil Defense Unit is a group dedicated to protecting the survivors in Malton and maintaining order in the city. The MCDU is a member of the Department of Emergency Management.

Group Backstory

Once the city erupted in chaos, the frightened people of Malton had no one to turn to for help. Arson, looting, and mass hysteria made even the most level headed citizen dangerous. An outbreak of a deadly virus was turning the city's people into mindless, flesh eating zombies. As droves of people ran to escape the city, a few brave souls ran back in. They went to save lives and do what they could. These men and women have several titles...firemen, police officers, military personnel, and doctors. But it is their other title, the one of "volunteer" that makes them who they are. They know there is a chance they might lose their lives in the line of duty, but it is a chance they have to take. Heroes don't grow on trees, but sometimes you can find them right down the street. If you are a citizen of Malton, and you need help, please locate a member and they will assist you.

You are not alone. Help is on the way.

Group Goals

Since 2006, the MCDU has operated as a civil defense unit with the goal of protecting the citizens of Malton. As such we do not have an official home, and have operated in every suburb within the city. The group undertakes a variety of tasks in support of survivors: including but not limited to assaulting infested territory, defending suburbs, operating revive points, and rebuilding ruined areas.

As a civil defense unit, the MCDU accepts players of all walks of life. We are firefighters, engineers, veterans, college students, and musicians. All members receive top training in The Academy before moving on to an actual unit.


The MCDU currently hosts one squad consisting of 2 fireteams.

Each fireteam consists of 4-5 troopers, one of which serves as the fireteam's commander. These troopers work together in specialized roles to fulfill specific mission objectives assigned by the fireteam leader. Depending on the needs of the city, fireteams are capable of working independently, or together as part of their assigned squad. Squads consist of 2-3 fireteams, with a full time squad leader in charge of coordinating the fireteams.

MCDU Alt Character Policy

We fully support the DEM policy on alternate characters. MCDU members may not have any other characters in the DEM. Furthermore, MCDU members agree to a higher standard with regards to alternate characters. You may play any style of alt you wish; it is none of our business how you play them. However, the one exception is that your alts must be separated from each other by at least a suburb. Alts must lead a completely separate life from the MCDU and its whereabouts. Failure to comply to this is grounds for termination from the MCDU (subject to review by MCDU command).
