Basic Info:

  • Office buildings owned by the company often associated with the zombie outbreak. From the outside, they are indistinguishable from other buildings, but characters with the NecroTech Employment skill are able to recognise them.
  • Among the internal descriptions found in NecroTech Buildings:
    The NecroTech logo is set in the wall behind the front desk, and doors open onto powered-down computer rooms and laboratories."
  • If a generator is running inside the building:
    "The NecroTech logo glows gently above the front desk, and doors open onto a number of brightly-lit laboratories and computer rooms."
  • NecroTech offices are tall enough for survivors to commit suicide from. They also provide a vantage point from which binoculars can be used.
  • Necrotech Buildings can be barricaded normally.

The Browne Building is a NecroTech facility located in the suburb of Edgecombe. This NecroTech facility, an imposing grey-stone building flanked by trees, has slipped in and out of zombie clutches during the course of Malton's quarantine, usually somewhat reflecting the status of the suburb. Its history prior the outbreak has yet to be revealed, as it is rather hard to leaf through files while fighting off constant zombie attacks. Staff at this building commonly revive zombies at nearby revive points. The Browne Building is one of three NecroTech facilities found in the suburb. Members of project NecroWatch renovated the facility in recent months, as they installed sensor eyes for A.L.I.C.E. throughout the building and uploaded NecroNet 2.0 into the facility's system terminals.

The building's radio transmitter is commonly set to 26.70 MHz.


NecroTech staff continue to follow Directive 42-A, issued by the head office on January 19th 2006, with the activation and manufacture of MK-II revivification syringes. They have been charged with governing local revivification zones and seeing to the restoration of life to all zombies located therein.

The activation of NecroNet with all NecroTech buildings has also allowed scientists to apply the DNA tracking research they have gathered to date. Standard protocol dictates that all staff be equipped with a standard issue DNA Extractor to tag any zombies they come across during field research.

Barricade Policy

This building must always be Extremely Heavily (EH) barricaded. This barricade level has been set forth by local survivor groups as part of a strategic barricade policy that is enforced by locals. This building's purpose is to serve as safehouse for veteran survivors who possess the Free Running skill and a safe location for science staff to continue their experimentation. Visitors are requested to re-barricade if they discover the building's barricades are lowered.

NecroNet Reports

Zombie tracking reports are a free service provided by the NecroTech corporation to all its staff and local survivors in order to help facilitate quicker response times when managing zombie threats and to build a greater awareness of zombie migration patterns within the 9x9 block region around the Browne Building. As a cautious reminder, only those zombies tagged with the DNA Extractor will appear on these scans, so actual numbers may vary when dealing with older zombies (i.e. Brain Rot).
