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 Guiday Monument, a white marble obelisk at the top of a low flight of steps."

The Guiday Monument, a well-known location among local Australians for its poor spelling (G'day being the correct spelling), or "The 'Good Day' Monument" to non-Australians, is a large metal monument located in the suburb of Rhodenbank depicting soldiers during their moment of absolute victory. Unfortunately few details other than that appear to be common knowledge and efforts to glean more information from older residents of Rhodenbank are met with blank stares or warnings of "Watch it, or we'll do to you what we did to the Australians...". Even so, from what fragments of information can be gathered it would point to the vague possibility that at some point within the last three decades certain influential Rhodenbank citizens became very upset with Australia, or more likely a certain group of Australians. These citizens formed and financed a secret covert team of mercenaries, originally named "Team A" (or simply the "A-Team"), but later they opted for the name "Ye Olde Rhodenbank Rowdies", to exact their revenge. As to the goals of this private war nothing could be determined, but whatever the objective it appears to have been successful. Of course this assumption is based solely on the monument which serves as a tribute to the event rather than on any actual facts. Despite the vagueness of the monument Australians in Malton have started making pilgrimages to the area. Whether to support the only piece of "Australia" found in Malton, to protest its poor spelling, or more likely to express anger towards the anti-Australian locals is yet unclear.
