Here in the city, summer is full swing. The sun is shining, beating down on the concrete, but there is plenty to distract from the heat: a picnic in the park, a barbecue on the beach, or a day at Coney Island? Perhaps you've even been lucky enough to escape the humdrum of the everyday and spent a week away on a cruise or a tropical getaway.

Yet there's something dark happening in New York. You don't know just what it might be, but you sense something is not right... A feeling of being watched, spotting a shadow, a flash of movement out of the corner of your eye... then you turn to get a better look and it's gone!

You return home, to your safe haven among the city streets, going about your normal routine. You go to sleep, tucked into bed and unaware of the danger lurking within your home... Then, one night, that watching feeling never leaves you...

sign up

For this year's summer event, we've got a little surprise for you all, but the question is - are you daring enough to take the chance? If you'd like to take the plunge, you are volunteering one of your characters (which the staff will select at random) for our special mystery event. Who will it be? Well there's no way to tell! What is in store for them is uncertain, but one thing is for sure: things will never be the same.

If you would like to participate, simply post in this thread and you will be added to the roster. Sign ups will close Tuesday, July 21st so don't wait! After that, keep an eye out for updates here, and don't forget to watch your back...

Some time has passed since you heard of the last disappearance, and though none of the people missing have returned, you take this as a good sign... You let yourself fall into a sense of security, but little do you know that the watching hasn't stopped. Thinking you are safe and sound in your bed one night, you have hardly any warning before you're ripped from your bed by some unseen force.

what's next

The next clue to unfolding this event will actually be delivered to one of your characters. Through today and tomorrow, check your inboxes and you might find a rather unpleasant surprise waiting for them. The good news is, they're not alone. The bad news is, they're on the animated side of the portal - but just how did they get there? The Masked Man has left some clues in their inbox, but it will be up to you and your partner to decipher where exactly they are... and how to escape. Their only chance is to team up and work together, but keep in mind that the Darkness is always looming nearby.

Your next step is discuss with the member you've been paired with and thread out the prompt that has been sent to your character. Do a little plotting, decide who will start, and have at it! This event can be rapid fire if you and your partner would like to do so, but it is not necessary! Please PM Forest if you have concerns with the character that has been randomly picked for this event. If you have general questions, you can ask any of the staffers.

but that's not all

If you would still like to participate in Watch Your Back, there are plenty of ways in which you can. This event is meant to ripple through the animated community and really shake things up. No one is safe! For those characters that are a little more daring, they may try to find their friends on the animated side. Be warned it will be a dangerous journey for those who attempt to make it, and these characters could be hidden away anywhere - it's not likely that you will stumble across where they're being held.

For those still on the other side of the portal, remember that no one is safe. Your characters will continue to have that lurking suspicion that someone is following them... perhaps because someone is? These's no promise that this round of kidnappings is the last, and the threat should be felt by everyone who once called the animated realm home.
