Celebrations run rampant throughout the Hollow Earth. Balloons, piñatas, candies, and joy have wormed their way through every inch of the World Tree. Even the Stationmaster himself noted the joyous atmosphere in his own way when the Immaculate Machine began to prepare for the education protocol.
However, not all was well. A week passed. Gaia excretes her treats.
Will you help the Stationmaster? Will you guide Gaia’s loyal worker, her kindly Sisyphus?
This is merely the beginning, sweetlings. There is more to come.
Our wisdom flows so sweet. Taste and see…

Animated Angst is an ARG set within Secret World Legends and is primarily player-run. Nevertheless, it is highly suggested people explore and experience it!
Much like the Twitterverse Experiments of old conducted by Funcom through various NPCs through Twitter, this is both a series of puzzles and a roleplay experience with Twitter utilized to better engage players.
Twitter is not required to solve the puzzles once they have been initiated; however, it would be wise to watch the Stationmaster and interact with him.
On June 19th 2018, strange things started happening with the Stationmaster’s messages and befuddled him, but thanks to the aid of a few helpful players, the #AnimatedAngst message has been received and the hidden meanings began to be seen. Legends began to be learned.
It was not long after that a strange, silver guardian was found lost and lingering on a shuttered platform. Not to leave him in the dark on, a kind player informed the Stationmaster of the unfortunate fellow. Ever since, he has kept his watch on the wayward ward.
While all seemed quiet, on June 26th 2019, the Buzzing began a scan. Eleven pulse.
Just a day later on June 27th 2019, the Stationmaster found himself beset with a curious cipher with a meaning unknown. With help, the Conductor’s refrain was initiated.
By October 11th 2019, Kaspu Nasiru was keyed up.
The Stationmaster became increasingly worried when, on June 24th 2020, he attempted to share a photograph of the golem only to see the film riddled with unusual artifacts. It was but a day later that Kaspu Nasiru dashed off. And so Kaspu Nasiru waits.
On July 15th 2021, the Stationmaster made further note of Kaspu Nasiru’s mercurial nature when the quick silver guardian golem raced off during his rounds.
Going forward, any future developments will be tagged by the #AnimatedAngst hashtag, whether they be from the Stationmaster himself or others.
When discussing Animated Angst or any plot developments over Twitter or when you wish to notify the Stationmaster of anything, please utilize the #AnimatedAngst hashtag as well.
As part of the Anniversary and MEGAversary community initiative, Animated Angst will run throughout the duration of the Anniversary and MEGAversary events and beyond.
Those who solve or help solve each puzzle will receive honeyed goods. Wisdom flows so sweet.
Initiate the reward protocol. Good things come to those who help.
