The NecroTech logo glows gently above the front desk, and doors open onto a number of brightly-lit laboratories and computer rooms.
The Wicksted Building is a NecroTech facility located in the suburb of Wyke Hills. Though a faceless corporate structure to the uninitiated, this facility acts as the heart of R&D for NecroTech within the suburb and the South Office of Rotter's Relief. Staff at this building commonly revive Brain-Rotted zombies inside and, as such, require that the facility is powered and open at all times. This facility is one of four NecroTech facilities found in the suburb. The building is located eight blocks away from Buckley Mall.
Members of project NecroWatch renovated the facility in recent months with full co-operation from Rotter's Relief. They installed sensor eyes for A.L.I.C.E. throughout the building and uploaded NecroNet 2.0 into the facility's system terminals.
Those that chose to rest here often complain of crows living in nearby Owens Park stealing food or making such noise as to disrupt sleep. Some, however, have trained them to relay messages between here and Buckley Mall. These birds tend to only carry a few dozen before being killed by an uninformed, hungry Mall goer.
Operation of the building as a rot revive clinic has been actively opposed by Rotter's Relief=PKer's Relief in its war against Rotter's Relief.
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. While the cost in time and effort are currently high the certainty provided by being able to manufacture a constant stream of syringes has mitigated early concerns.
The activation of NecroNet with all NecroTech buildings has also allowed scientists to apply the DNA tracking research they have gathered to date. The field research staff stationed at the Wicksted Building feel certain that they can crack the mystery surrounding the spread of the virus as well as help monitor aberrant zombie activity within Wyke Hills.
This building is a designated Revive Clinic for Brain-Rotted zombies. Rotter's Relief, Wulves, and Rotter's Relief=PKer's Relief have agreed to maintain Wickstead NT as either VSB and dark, or EHB and lit. When a rotter shows up outside, they are DNA scanned. If they are not zerg listed or a PKer they are allowed in for a revive. If they are either, then the building stays EHB and dark until they leave.
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 Wicksted 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).
