Basic Info:

  • A monument is a city block containing a statue or similar piece of public art, without a building in it. It is functionally equivalent to a street, except that players with the Tagging skill can gain 2 XP for writing graffiti on a monument.
  • This is, game-play wise, an empty block, and cannot be barricaded.
  • After the July 3, 2009 update, some monuments became tall and can be seen from a distance with binoculars

Humans and zombies alike will see the following (permanent) description when standing in front of the monument:

"You are at the Floyd Monument, a white marble statue of a 19th century figure surrounded by grass."

The Floyd Monument was a startling 40-foot tall stone monument located in the suburb of Rhodenbank. The monument is named after Sgt. Floyd Pepper the bass guitarist for the Muppet rock band, "Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem". Floyd's name refers to both Pink Floyd and to the Beatles album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. He first appeared in "The Muppet Show: Sex and Violence" and some of the songs he sang included: New York State of Mind and Ain't Misbehaving. Floyd has claimed to consider himself an excellent songwriter but, with no apparent contradiction, admitted that everyone hates his music. Not that he blamed them. "If I didn't know I was a genius," he once declared, "I wouldn't listen to the trash I write."

Of course placing the significance of the individual aside, survivors are left wondering the obvious question: Why build a 40-foot tall statue to a Muppet? Why indeed. While the entire notion itself transcends any sane line of thought a survivor has only to visit the other monuments located throughout the suburb to witness a general theme to them all... one of madness.
