Susie’s Diner, though much abandoned today used to be a local hot-spot for eating and early morning socialization. Even though this well known landmark in Kingsmouth recently succumbed to zombie infestation many residents still remember the diner fondly. If you don’t mind clearing out a few un-dead, it is actually still a decent place to rest for a while and gather non-perishables should you be in dire need.
The lights are still lit up, the place still has a decent atmosphere and wasn’t looted too badly. It’s one of those places that can bring back a bit of nostalgia even in a town that has gone bottom’s up in this crazy world. Even just looking at it from the outside can remind you of what small town life used to be like. Family owned diners and seafood shacks being among a common sight you’d see.
The damage to Susie’s hasn’t been to bad and I’m sure any rising entrepreneur would do the town a service by reopening and making it more secure with zombie proofing and wards. It isn’t very far from the mining museum which seems to have avoided being hit by any of the zombie or Draug in the area and people could visit the museum then stop in at the diner after for a quick meal. Once the beaches are cleaned up, this could be a good place to patronize once again.
Kingsmouth’s economy took a dive once the fog rolled in. Zombies killed a lot of the population and drove companies elsewhere if not completely destroying them. Most of us know how to use handguns by now and the filth beings in this area tend to be particularly susceptible to damage. If we all made an effort to clear wherever streets we go through as we travel eventually the zombies would be eradicated and things could go back to the way they were. This town used to be lovely. A little maintenance could help put it right and we could all enjoy the quaint charm this village has to offer.
If you have the ability, help when you can. This town is one we can reclaim and build up again. Restore to it’s former glory. Bad things happened here. Even in it’s founding bad things happened. Let’s end that cycle and start good things happening here.
