Warehouse 8, 63


A derelict yellow-stone building surrounded by burnt-out cars. Inside, hundreds of cardboard boxes are piled to the ceiling.


Herman Square Warehouse in its "Yellow Box" days.

Before the Incident, this warehouse served as the primary storage facility for the surrounding area. One of it's main uses was as a unit to store pieces for the nearby Shenton Museum, while they were not on display. Back in more prosperous times, the warehouse was used frequently, but, in the decade before the outbreak, a bungling economy led to it becoming disused and it's eventual transformation in to a "yellow box" storage warehouse.

For many, this is considered to be the sad end to the story of the Herman Square Warehouse, and these people believe that the Warehouse has no further notability beyond this. These people are wrong. In 2003, a mere two years before the outbreak, the "Yellow box" company was forced to make cutbacks. They abandoned the warehouse, and anyone who left their belongings uncollected was destined to have their lost secrets piled in the warehouse for all time. In the meantime, the Warehouse saw another change in its role, which brought with it a grim fortitude that revived the warehouse.

On the 3rd December, 2003, James Connel Doherty purchased the warehouse from the "Yellow Box" company, who were all too keen to sell off their old property for some extra money. Instead of storage for a new business, as Doherty led Yellow Box to believe, the warehouse was now to serve as his eternal graveyard. Doherty, a serial killer, had recently begun killing in the Crooketon area, and needed a place to store the bodies. Unfortunately for Doherty, his collection of several bodies in one place led to chaos after the Incident, which, in a bizarre twist of irony, saw Doherty's former victims rise and tear him apart.

From now on, the Herman Square Warehouse lies abandoned on the East border of Crooketon, used occassionally by survivors of the outbreak as a safehouse, and stacked full of the discarded belongings of the previous depositors, and the fetid stench left by Doherty's insane killings.
