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 NecroTech logo glows gently above the front desk, and doors open onto a number of brightly-lit laboratories and computer rooms.

This Building is maintained as a rot revive clinic by Rotter's Relief and as such should have no barricades.

Resource buildings

This building often needs a generator. Closest places to find one are factories at 5,47 and 5,58. They can be easily accessed by moving to SE four times, entering a junkyard and then moving to one of the factories.

Fuel can be found at these factories, or at Waller Auto Repair two blocks to the north.




The Woodborne Building is a NecroTech facility located in the suburb of Owsleybank. Though a faceless corporate structure to the uninitiated, this facility acts as the heart of R&D for NecroTech within the suburb. Staff at this building commonly revive zombies at nearby revive points. This facility is one of two 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.


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 Woodborne Building feel certain that they can crack the mystery surrounding the spread of the virus as well as help monitor aberrant zombie activity within Owsleybank.

Barricade Policy

This building should be "OPEN", or unbarricaded, at all times. This is in accordance with the set forth by local survivors, who routinely monitor the barricade level for this building. This building is meant to serve as a Rot Revive clinic for zombies suffering Brain Rot. Survivors who find the building barricaded are asked to assist in lowering them back down in order to help ensure that zombies seeking revival are able to do so without difficulty.

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 Woodborne 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).

During late August, 2010 the survivor group ESCAPE invited all survivors into the bordering Elicott Railway to the south. ESCAPE utilized the Woodborne Building as it had always been used, as a brain rot revive clinic for those zombies who wished to participate in ESCAPE on June 1. ESCAPE was hoping for an action to be taken by the developer Kevan Davis. In the event no response was given it was suggested by a smaller element within ESCAPE that those seeking an ending take matters into their own hands and committ suicide collectively on June 2. Because it is an option to jump out of the windows of certain buildings, the Woodborne Building was chosen as the site of the Lemmings style event because of its eligibility and proximity to the Woodborne Building. Although many survivors died at the hands of the zombie group No Escape before they had a chance to jump, many survivors did manage to kill their characters off for good at the Woodborne Building.

Suicide Capital

The events on June 2, 2010 and afterwards have contributed to a rather large flow of players no longer wishing to continue their survivor characters' digital existance. As such the Woodborne Building has become the "Niagra Falls" or "Beachy Head" of Malton, a suicide hotspot partly because of its status as the site of the only signifigant mass suicide in Urban Dead history.
