I knew I would find some sort of action in Havercroft. Nice to see you guys are still around!

Well, to quote The Godfather of Heavy Metal "Time to play the game"... --Schiz0 09:28, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

abfgsdfhytrmn...Heh, its been so long since someone said anything here that now that its time to reply I'm somewhat at a loss for words. A year or so ago, you might have gotten some response to the tune of "NOT playing the game is what got you in this mess..." etc, etc. Its a different time now though, so I'll just say, have fun with it and good luck, Schiz0. ~Vsig.png 23:49, 17 February 2014 (UTC)


It should be very easy this time around guys, There is no group that can match our pugnacity. --RaddoX 20:29, 21 October 2011 (BST)

Never was. Never will be. I expect this group to carry on the tradition of excellence established by our predecessor. --Hibernaculum 21:22, 21 October 2011 (BST)


love what you guys have doing. great to see you back in malton.--User:Sexualharrison00:49, 10 November 2011 (bst)


That's an impressive number of kills you guys have got, but you really oughtta start taking screenshots. You know, just for the record... ~~ Chief Seagull ~~ talk 17:42, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

We have each and every scalp lovingly put on display in the FOD forum trophy room should the need arise for such proof. You'll understand if we'd rather not put the actual 'witness' shot here, lest undesirable elements glean important information from them. Once upon a time, I would edit these shots with the appropriate cropping and blacking out of information but I can't be arsed to do it anymore and our Director of Marketing, one Rob Oppenheimer finds it unnecessarily tedious. --Hibernaculum 18:28, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
Cobra always had good experience with keeping all its screenies out into the open. If that is too hardcore for you, consider collecting the evidence in monthly threads, and then moving it into public every two months or so. -- Spiderzed 19:32, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
I nearly giggled at the idea of anything being 'too hardcore' for the FoD. But my humorless nature stopped me at the last millisecond. It was a close thing, though.
Why do people always give the FoD a hard time if they don't provide pictures of their kills, and yet apparently assume that whatever kills the PK actually report to the wiki are legit despite us having almost no pictures whatsoever? Is there some way that the FoD would benefit from kill pictures that doesn't apply to other groups? What is this strange double standard? Or do the FoD seem more likely to lie? Because if they reported that they'd killed my entire group all at once tomorrow, I'd log in on the assumption that I'd need a revive and some aspirin. --DTPraise KnowledgePK 22:08, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
Should anyone wish to dispute any of our kills they are welcome to request we release the evidence and we will do so happily. I see no reason to clog the wiki with images of the final moments of all 101 victims we have taken within the last 43 days. I believe our kill list already provides more information than many groups are willing to share regarding their targets. Anyway, I do feel obliged to add...You ain't seen nothing yet.

If you FoD guys want, here is a script that will hide HP, AP, and Inventory before making a Dumbwit report. --Klexur 03:55, 23 June 2012 (BST)
Thanks. You should probably know that AP, HP and Inventory are only part of what most players want to keep secret. It's mostly details that could help others pinpoint their location that people want left out from screenshots. I very much like the idea of a script that hides information in screenshots and we'd be willing to give more input on this and other scripts. There aren't enough PKer conscience scripts for UD, unfortunately. ~Vsig.png 08:21, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
Technically hiding your location shoudn't even be an issue. RG has a two week deadline for reports (although RG has some can bypass the deadline by submitting timestamp-less reports...). Just hold your reports for a few days before reporting. By the time you submit it, you'll most likely be long gone. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 14:10, 23 June 2012 (BST)
Yes, but not everyone does that. You see blacked out screenshots on RG daily. Everyone has their own method. And to be clear, FoD does not report to RG. We've developed our own private system of payback independent from RG. We aren't likely to start including screenshots in our public kills list either, but that doesn't mean I don't see value in Klexur's script. ~Vsig.png 17:04, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
I'll be working on a better version of the one above that will replace the info after the witness report as soon as I get the time. Thanks for the feedback, too. --Klexur 16:42, 23 June 2012 (BST)
No problem. BTW, say "hello" to the folks at Jillard NT for me Wink. ~Vsig.png 17:04, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
Uploaded a new version of UD Dumbwit Privacy that will return your HP, AP, and Inventory after making a Dumbwit report. Link on my page. As soon as Aichon updates Barrista with IDs, I'll be able to better stream-line my own code. And Vapor, I'll do that next time I'm in Kempsterbank. Wink --Klexur 21:14, 24 June 2012 (BST)

100 Abandoned Heads

Flowerofd.png Be-a-uuuutiful. Well done! ~Vsig.png 14:31, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

*lets down the tailgate* Aye. We be loaded to the brim with corpses of the abandoned. *watches as a few bodies tumble onto the pavement* Let's see who we got here. *rolls one of the bodies over and laughs to himself* Unrecognizable!--RaddoX 23:31, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

Lt Christopher

You might wanna see this --Radio 23:33, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Oh, don't presume that we haven't already noticed. You can sleep well knowing that the "good" doctor's decaying corpse will soon be inhumed along side the various and sundry detritus we encounter. Perhaps he will even have the honor of being the catalyst which brings doom to the Templars. They are on borrowed time already, I can assure you. ~Vsig.png 04:22, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Nothing "Brings Doom" to the Templars, we've barely even noticed your latest PKing spree against us. -Facial Hair Is Cool 11:09, 10 June 12 (EST)

Sure. So why are you here? --Hibernaculum 17:09, 10 June 2012 (BST)
I really like how your user page says "Killer Scarecrow hunting" when you personally have yet to even injure one of us. Is that how all of you hunt? --RadicalWhig 08:46, 11 June 2012 (BST)
Pst. Hey Flowers. I believe if you ask Cobra's own Julie Marsh, I'm sure she can tell you that these so-called Knights took roughly two months to retaliate against her. ;) --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 14:23, 11 June 2012 (BST)
Check it, gotee. That's you twice since you introduced yourself. Scared of replying? Don't worry, we're only very slightly more likely to kill chatty flotsam. :) --RadicalWhig 10:10, 13 June 2012 (BST)
BOOM SHAKALAKA! --Pvt christopher 23:05, 15 June 2012 (BST)
Badasses six, Gotee zero. Better catch up :) --RadicalWhig 03:26, 17 June 2012 (BST)

Thank You

I was looking for targets to kill. I don't hunt by RG standards, see, nor do I kill by groups. I kill by my own eyewitness testimonies. It was getting pretty dull not witnessing anything for days. So this here puts you guys on my map. Also, being one who reports everything to RG, including my own kills for my own personal reasons, despite not following their list, sadly, you're reducing my bounty count, so even more reasons to kill you. Targets a target, I guess. --Clair "Lightning" Farron

And thank you for finding ol' Mick. We thought we'd lost him. Good to see he's still tending to the garden of Malton. We'll be sure to add you to our roster of culled flotsam. Good luck in your hunt. You'll most asuredly need it. I hear additional IP hits are cheap. ~Vsig.png 16:18, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Luck? Fate? I don't need either of 'em. I control my fate. It's not a question of can or can't. Some things in life you just do. --Claire "Lightning" Farron

Just FYI: I'm dropping my warrant on Mick only 'cause Carrie asked me to. So you've got her to thank for me deciding not to kill Mick if I ever see him. --Claire "Lightning" Farron

Ah, whoops. Sorry, ma'am, I slept through the part where I was gonna give a shit.--RadicalWhig 07:22, 30 July 2012 (BST)

PHOBIA Seal of Approval

PHOBIA recognizes the murder and mayhem that Flowers of Decay spreads across the city of Malton and not only condones this behavior, but would like to present this:

TSI Seal of Approval

Sinq.jpg Well!
The droopy Flowers certainly didn't expect some sort of Spanish Inquisition!

For the record, seeing as you have difficulty counting as well as reading: TSI 26, FODs 12. Not bad for a handful of smelly, defrocked priests. Amen!--Mallrat The Spanish Inquisition TSI The Kilt Store TKS Clubbed to Death CTD 04:04, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

I'm confused. I don't recall ever actually hunting you guys. If we are at war and we don't even know it, I guess your chief weapon really is surprise...or one of chief weapons is surprise. surprise... and an almost fanatical devotion to boasting about imagined victory. This looks to me like you were collateral damage 12 times and you have only gotten us 26 times with a concerted effort. Might have sent an initiate or two your way but I think most of us were doing other things. Congrats on the "win" though.--~
It's a little memento of the FODs' summer sojourn in Vinetown, as Vapor and his radical poodle have memory issues. Far from being concerted, the efforts of our priests were divided between the droopy blooms and the local griefer/zerger population, as well as looking after the cathedral, hospital and other local amenities. By the way, respect due to JR 'Bob' Dobbs, he was a worthy opponent.--Mallrat The Spanish Inquisition TSI The Kilt Store TKS Clubbed to Death CTD 07:15, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
I'm sorry but I have no idea who you are. Have we crossed paths before? --Hibernaculum 16:00, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
Wow, we normally only get this level of uwaaaah from random trenchies. Why yes, I'd love some whine with my Sacrament, priestie. --RadicalWhig 07:34, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

Kill Em All

Everything is proceeding exactly as I have foreseen.

TZH "defeat"

Get over yourself chump. We never went anywhere, and if at any time the stats page didn't list TZH, its either because A) you read it wrong or B) the "dead" members had temporarily switched to HZT. We've ransacked your little frittata hospital at least 50 times since October. Don't get your panties in a bunch, we'll still kill you when we find you, assuming there isn't someone way more important to kill. Which their usually is. The Tulips of Shit generally rank pretty low, for me anyway. Get bent shit licker! BALLS TO THE WHALLS! --Dhavid Grohl 13:15, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

your kidding right?--User:Sexualharrison13:59, 15 January 2013
3 months later and that's the best you could come up with, Grohl? Your words sound like the mewling of a pregnant cat. Let's be honest, you gave up the hunt and just rolled over, dirtnapping until the big bad PKers went away. If ever there were clearer victory conditions, I'd like to see them. Of the 20 or so known TZH members we tracked, only Obi was standing on the day we claimed victory, and I understand he was nowhere near the conflict. TZH dropped off stats because they all idled out during their dirtnap. It wasn't until weeks later that any of you even attempted to stand up. We threw a huge party in Tarasius and later in Marven Mall to celebrate your exit from the game, temporary as it was. ~Vsig.png 15:22, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
Ahh, good old TZH. I noticed for all your 100% bullshit up there, you never objected to our very real assertions that it was a one-way slaughter as we mowed you down like grass before a nuclear explosion. I guess you're still capable of admitting to the truth on some level, no matter how much your ragequit-induced, ever-rising blood pressures have damaged your widdle brains.--RadicalWhig 20:02, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
You fucking rule Grohl. BTTW. A ZOMBIE ANT 02:32, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

as far as i know, the fellow has long since been silenced. good riddance. -- I'd rather die than live a lie. 12:09, 16 August 2013 (BST)
Sure. I'll give you enough rope to hang yourself. You've been unGagged at our forum and given Voice. Make good use of it. Wow. What a way to bump an old message and make an uncaffinated Vapor think its current. ~Vsig.png 17:20, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

UD Fark

Hello! I understand you've had encounters with the group UD Fark in the past, we are currently in a war against them, leading with 5 - 0. We would like to give them a nasty surprise, how would you feel about putting some extra pressure on them? Cheers! --Leiter 16:41, 28 August 2013 (BST)

Hi Leiter. Could you register on our forum and send more info? Or maybe ask Jerden since he's already registered? I'd say use PKA's forum but the last I checked, it was down for the long count. Just checked, and PKA's forum is no longer down. It is as quiet as ever, but if you'd prefer to PM me there, its an option. ~Vsig.png 17:54, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

Roftwood Block Party

I'd like to formally invite the FoD to participate in the Block Party scheduled for July 15 until August 15, 2014 in Roftwood. The event is open to everyone, where we will try to relive the glory days of UD and bring as many people together as possible to have an enjoyable time and make the flowers grow. This page will give you the run down, but there aren't really any specific goals other than fun. As a group, we hope the event will provide a recruiting opportunity, as well as, some excitement for your current members. If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the the event talk page or on my talk page. Thanks! --K 17:02, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

I've passed along word to the Flowers of Decay. We'll see what happens, but barring anything strange happening, it's likely that we'll be able to make it. --Keolah 00:15, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

Communication speculations

Hibernaculum, I'm sorry to see that you're acting coward as the rest of the crew. Dropping insults at me and then blocking me for an answer ? It seems typical now and daily routine. Anywho... this is what I answered and I didn't want you to miss it :

"Hib, not sure what's being said in your corner but let me clear that everything I've said needed answers while DoX played puppy eyes and is leading grief. I'm sorry you can't see it and I'm far from petty and wishing to hold grudges. They are not playing fair and I'm not gonna fold like a fool. You have no idea apparently about anything that's going on and I do wish you did. Thanks for trying though, it's much appreciated." --Murderess (talk) 21:05, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

New Blood, Wannabes, or Something Else?

Just curious, really, but seeing the Flowers jump up in the group rankings - after so many longtime, historical groups' names were "borrowed" by sus zombie groups recently - made me wonder if characters like these were new real blooms or cheap, plastic Flowers. Makes no nevermind to me in the end, but I've been following that faker saga from a distance.

- Ginormous (talk)

lmao no, those are part of some zergling group hanging around shearbank. They've got 7 or so characters using our tags in bad faith. Attached some others mobbing with the ones you posted.

Didn't think so! Can't help but wonder what would happen if Kevan quietly eliminated Free Running as a first level skill. I'd love to imagine the aneurysms. -Ginormous (talk)
