The Backstory: What is the Artie Task Force?

Once upon a time, in the chaotic world of Artie, a land riddled with chaos and countless bizarre inhabitants, two groups emerged to dominate the scene: the Chocotoys and the Junkyards. The Chocotoys were all about that party life, living it up with their boomboxes, laser guns, and radioactive cheese fries. They held dominion over the groovy places like the Disco Tech, Zenpire Records, and Mount Fetch. On the other hand, the Junkyards were goth, vampiric, and menacing, lurking in the shadows of places like the Museum of Cannibalism, Blood Falls, and Dishwater Park.

The leader of the Chocotoys was the charismatic Bosspaw, a conniving mastermind who could sell sawdust to a lumber mill. He led his ragtag crew of misfits, including the dreamy Dreamdust, the stoned jokester Wrocky, and the lovable retired hitman Unicorn, among others. Together, they defended their turf and their love for all things bright and loud.

The Junkyards were led by the terrifying Back Stabba, a trickster who reveled in confusion and paranoia. His crew consisted of the bloodthirsty Needles, the mischievous Slyquil, the destructive Lil’ Oozy, and more. They thrived on spreading chaos and fear throughout the world of Artie.

One fateful day, a mission presented itself: to uncover the secret of the Shadow World of Artie. Both groups were eager to claim this knowledge for themselves, and so the conflict began.

The Chocotoys, with their powerful arsenal of weapons like the lava bazooka, electrobow and arrow, and the pickle cannon, fought fiercely against the Junkyards and their own array of weapons like the laser gun, flea bomb, and killshot scrunchie.

Amidst this chaos, a new force emerged with a mission to unify the groups and stop the shadow realm from corrupting all dimensions: the Artie Task Force. Led by Granny 512 and driven by the desire to restore balance, a group of Artiezens rose up to combat the spreading shadows, and it is seeking new members from all corners of the realms to join — including yours.
