Barricades are the last defense of a humanity under siege by the forces of darkness. Barricading will stop Vampires and Zombies from entering a particular building. However, do take note that if a building is barricaded beyond Barricaded, other Humans will need to take 10 AP to enter. If a building is barricaded beyond Heavily Barricaded, other Humans will need to take 5 AP to leave.

Only Humans can build barricade, destroy barricade efficiently, climb in and out of barricaded buildings. Climbing in and Climbing out do not need doors to be opened.

Construction of BarricadesEdit

The construction of barricades can only be accomplished by humans.

A chance of successfully constructing barricade on usable (ruin's level 0) is 80% (no light).

When players successfully construct a level 10 barricade, there will be a message "You look around and find something to help barricade. It looks as if the barricade is almost too strong to easily let in other human beings". telling that the next upgrade will make barricade become heavily barricade.

Message Levels of barricade
No barricade 0
Lightly barricade 1-5
Barricade 6-10
Heavily barricade 11-15
Extremely heavily barricade 16-20

Sense Presence can be used on barricades from level 0 to 14.

Demolishing Barricades/ Fences/ Televisions/ GeneratorsEdit

Whereas only humans can put up barricades, all of residents can tear them down whether with tools or by tooth and claw. However, Humans can buy the Demolition skill, which greatly aids in the taking down of barricades.

NPCs can randomly destroy barricades.

Successful chances are not affected by darkness penalty or players' HP.
