The Malton Forensics Unit is a core group of the Department of Emergency Management, an organization whose groups have a total of more than 15 . Historically dedicated to assisting the MPD in protecting the citizens of Malton through crime scene investigation and handling of forensic evidence, the MFU has been largely repurposed to reviving the undead, as well as curing the infected, tracking zombie movements, and fulfilling its traditional function of forensic science.

Membership in the Malton Forensics Unit is not restricted to scientist-class characters. Civilian and military revivers may apply if they have the starting skill for either of the scientist classes (i.e. NecroTech Employment or Diagnosis).

What We Do

The Malton Forensics Unit is a group dedicated to the support and survival of the defenders of Malton. While we see the need to sometimes use force on those that embrace their zombie state, our primary aim is to revive slain survivors and bring them back to the world of the living.

Members of the MFU usually work out of NT buildings or nearby safe houses, where the supplies they need to work are available. Their primary task is to provide revives and manage revivification points, other duties include DNA-scanning zombies and of course making regular reports on the activities in their area, including NecroNet printouts when available.

All new members receive rigorous survival and tactics training at The Academy before being assigned to regular work.

Goals and Guidelines

MFU logo.jpg

To achieve these short-term and long-term goals, the Malton Forensics Unit has set forward the following guidelines for units in the field:

  • Support each other and your fellow survivors.
  • Scout and report horde sightings and activity with situation reports.
  • Check for breaches in safehouses and TRPs in your area, particularly NecroTech buildings.
  • Adjust barricades according to the the appropriate barricade plan.
  • Respect Sacred Ground: We support the Sacred Ground Policy, and members must consider cemeteries functional RPs. While priority is given to those that have placed a revive request, zombies at these locations should not be attacked except in extraordinary circumstances.
  • Tag buildings with useful information (barricade level, location of closest revive point, etc.).
  • Community service announcements: Let your fellow survivors know of dangerous conditions, horde sightings, etc.. Educate less-experienced survivors, and direct them to entry points and functional TRPs.
  • Recruit, try not to be shy. Let people know you are with the Malton Forensics Unit. Encourage fellow revivers to join, provide the URL of this page. The more personnel the MFU has at its disposal, the more good we can do for the survivor cause!
  • Maintain the wiki, especially the List of Revivification Points.
  • Work with your community and assist any local groups and freelancers whose goals are congruent with DEM goals and policies. As a city-wide organization, we have the opportunity to help bring like-minded groups together on large-scale projects. Working as a team, we can accomplish great things.

All members of the MFU are held to high standards of civility and friendliness. Personal insults, especially if aimed at fellow MFU or DEM members, are not tolerated and have no place in our group, as does other questionable behavior. This ensures that within the group, a team spirit and a friendly, trusting, and open atmosphere exists.

  • Uniform Barricade Policy: (UBP) is designed to provide as secure a barricade plan as possible that still leaves resource buildings and sufficient safe shelters accessible for less experienced survivors and provides a wide range of entryways for those with Free Running.
Ubpicon1.gif Uniform Barricading Policy Supporter
This User or Group supports the Uniform Barricading Policy by actively maintaining barricades according to local plan or UBP standard.

  • River Tactics: are a broad range of strategies which seek to gain an advantage over zombie horde and mega-horde incursions through flexibility, redirection and avoidance. Borrowing heavily from concepts cultivated in Aikido, River Tactics do not directly conflict with the thrust of enemy strikes, instead exploiting the voids for survivor advantage.

  • PK Reporting: Have you been killed by another survivor (Player Killer)? Have you witnessed such a killing? Simply take a screenshot of the incident and report it to the Rouges Gallery. The Rogues Gallery allows bounty hunters and other players to see who the PKers are.

This User or Group supports PK Reporting. Don't let Player Killers get away with murder. Report them on the Rogues Gallery.

  • RESCUE: If possible, churches should be considered as indoor RPs, removing the need to step outside and back inside to perform revivification.
