The Quartly Study Group The literates and librarians encourage the Higher-Learning sacred ground policy and the peaceful discussion of differences. The Quartly Librarians welcome the living and the dead into the Library, believing that even zombies with the rot may have something to contribute.


Back in July of two-thousand-and-six, several literates from the Rotwood region decided that a zombie apocalypse was a terrible reason to allow library texts to go missing. With the goal of securing all of the Quartly's library books at any cost necessary, a handful of scholars descended upon the uneducated and illiterate hordes of Malton. Finding library books abused and torn by the unwashed masses cowering in the malls, and also by the rotting hordes dining on flesh in the streets, the desperate members of the Quartly Study Group decided upon desperate measures... they needed both living and undead Librarians to solve this problem. In February of 2008 the QSG established a branch in Monroeville

"Overdue library books require overactive librarians."

The Quartly Study Group is a multi-layered organization. Each division has different responsibilities, and membership in any one is based on the individual's talents and gifts.

The divisions are:

  • The Library Council: These educated warriors are most often located at the homestead and are the last line of defense against misconception and illiteracy.
  • Literary Critics: The Librarians have noticed that in a war-torn world it is necessary to recover literature at any cost. These dedicated critics are well-trained and well-armed for the unfortunate necessity of violence and retribution.
  • Librarians The glorious educated populace which makes up the Study Group. They may be living or undead, brainrotted humans or seasoned professionals, new to Malton or long-term residents... but the Librarians are all pacifists and skilled orators.

The Quartly Study Group has several operations. They are ongoing and loosely organized with communication happening in person or through the forum.

Reference Desk

  • Help the living find books.
  • Help the dead understand polysyllabic words.
  • Keep the reference desk open at all costs.

Guest Speakers

  • Contact career zombies with an interest in education.
  • Arrange for the revivification of guest speakers.
  • Providing Tea & Biscuits at all costs.

Literary Criticism

  • Identify authors of repute.
  • Antagonize illiterates in the region.
  • Seek vengeance upon those who would befoul our library.

Share the Literacy

  • Pro-actively securing possible future late fees.
  • Lecture upon topics of undeath and demonology.

Survival Protocols

If Terrified Then Barricade Everything - When the library books are just plain lost, when your library card lamination has peeled allowing moisture to spoil the ink, or when a member of the Nauseating Legion won't let you keep your Reader's Digest condensed books, just repeat this simple phrase "Keep 'em off me, please God keep 'em off me."

Overrun by Horde, Safe House Immediately Threatened - When you wake up with your Library torn asunder, all your fellow survivors are corpses on the floor, or your favorite copy of The Hobbit is destroyed, it is understandable that you forget the proper training and panic. In the heat of the moment, a specific explanation, like suburb danger levels, is time consuming and exposes you to dangerous, adult-oriented situations. Just call for support from fellow Librarians with an O.H.S.H.I.T. and one of the Literate should come to your aid. While waiting, it is advised that you begin the I.T.T.B.E. protocol. Someone will come for your library books eventually.


Further Revives Immediately After Revivification - Sometimes the only way to make a difference is by sacrificing your literate self for the greater good. In hopes of recovering as many lost Tomes as possible, we of the QSG suggest carrying out as many revives as possible. Fulfilling the maximum number of revivifications will leave you asleep in a cemetery, but if one survivor returns her lost copy of The Fountainhead, then your efforts will be repaid with interest.
