Stowell Towers

Five months before the outbreak.


It's windows are shattered, offices looted, walls vandalized, and occupants scattered to the winds, the Stowell Towers frequntly sits in silence. It is but a husk of a building, but survivors have made their way into the Stowell Towers to find some semblance of sanctuary from the chaos of the streets. Repeated vandalism and rampant zombie incursions have lead to survivors breaking out windows to take random pot-shots at the undead mobs or to drop filing cabinets onto their heads.


The Stowell Towers had been the center point for monumental business transactions in the past with sixty stories of floors, It's twin spires were an icon for the Lockettside Tech Center. Having once been home to several high-security companies, the building was relatively easy to secure in the days of zombies. Once a beacon of industry and commerce it now it rests in a shattered shadow if its former glory.

As of Oct 20, 2008, the Stowell Towers had become home to the survivor group known as HOPE (Humans Operating in Punative Extremes). Seeking to provide a safe house for fellow survivors, as well as patrolling the surrounding areas, HOPE sought to keep the events of Lockettside accounted for. They claimed occupancy for over a year following their establishment, but the group has since been silent for over a decade.

Much of the Stowell Towers history following the Zombie Incursion has been sordid and uninteresting. Zombies and survivors alike have found their way into and out of the Towers, none of which staying for any extended periods of time.

Barricade Policy

The current Barricade Policy for Stowell Towers is Extremely Heavily Barricaded (as per the Lockettside Barricade Plan). The neighboring Warehouse (25, 83) is the closest access point into the Towers, and is set to Very Strongly Barricaded (VSB).
