Report: Message sent through sock puppet email account. Spread through forums shortly before moderator interception.


“While the mysterious forum messages are not inherently of a classified nature, we are keeping this under wraps because we don’t even understand what it is. The other researchers are itching to make an entity or object page, but it's not even clear if today's incident was related to the Backrooms at all.

All we know is that something breached the community forums without needing to be reviewed by moderators and sent this message. I suggest we wait and see what its next move is.”

Message two:

DO YOU THINK WE ARE PRETTY?

Report: Message uploaded on forums and then quickly deleted by poster. Recovered with internet archiver.


"The moderators found that the first and second post were both made by separate sock puppet accounts, created within an hour of each other. They had no other previous activity.

An IP address couldn't be tracked, but that's usually the case with posters who come from within the Backrooms. I don't think this is a cause for alarm, but instead a general nuisance that the mods will have to deal with. Let's keep this classified and off the database for now and keep archiving whatever posts they make. Maybe it'll bring up something interesting?"

Message three:

Montgomery's still getting ready for the trip. Everyone else is waiting on the bus while he packs his bag. Hopefully we can get out on the road soon.

A storm's brewing, too. Gonna have to dodge that if we want to get to the stadium on time.

I got a letter from Mom. She's proud of me.

NOBODY CAN REMEMBER ANYMORE.

Report: Message posted anonymously, but traced to a newly-made third account. Posted on forums for roughly three minutes before being taken down by moderation.


"A story is obviously starting to develop here, but I'm not sure I can tell where it's heading. I have a small team of people trying to track down the origins of the first two photos… I think there's a real-life connection, but it's too early to tell.

At the very least, we need to help the mods stop these accounts from posting this stuff. It's obnoxious."

-Doctor Bierre


Message four:

DO WE LOOK NICE PLAYING THE BALL GAME? ARE YOU ENTERTAINED? PLEASE SAY YOU ARE WATCHING.

YOU ARE SO CLOSE TO FINDING US, DOCTOR. NOBODY ELSE GOT THIS FAR.

Report: Photo and message sent directly to Doctor Bierre's personal messages through a previous sock puppet account.


"They're aware of us, at least partially. This one wasn't posted to the forums, so it's likely that they're trying to send a message instead of bothering the moderators.

The team found the first photo, the one that started this little investigation. It's a photo of a college-league baseball team that went missing on a bus trip back in the 40's. We couldn't trace the second photo."

-Doctor Bierre


Message five:

Driving through this storm has been cruel as hell. We're all freezing, and the gear is starting to break. The driver doesn't know how many more miles are left, either. Can't see any semblance of civilization at all, just empty fields of crops.

We gotta make it to the game, I guess. The contract won't let us back out of it now. The road's icy and the fog is bearing down on us, but it'll be worth it if we can get to the stadium.

YOU FOUND US, DOCTOR.

NOW IT'S OUR TURN.

WE'RE COMING FOR YOU, DOCTOR. WE WANT TO TAKE YOU TO THE BALLGAME.

Report: Message sent directly to Doctor Bierre's personal messages through second sock puppet account. A corrupt video file was attached, which could not be recovered. The video file was titled "HOMERUN."


"I'll be in the office tonight, on Level 1. Don't contact me.

We shouldn't have researched this damned thing in the first place."

Final message:

WE'VE GOT A NEW FRIEND AT THE BALLGAME. HE'S A FINE WATERBOY, BUT HE DOESN'T SELL AS MUCH AS THE LAST ONE. STILL, HE LOVES THE GAME AS MUCH AS WE DO.

PLEASE PLEASE LET LET US US OUT OUT

Report: Unknown


Doctor Bierre has yet to reappear, but his office was found to be completely vandalized. All files on "The Homerunners" are to be archived and only accessed with express permission.

Forum posts from the accounts have stopped appearing. It seems as though they got what they wanted.

END TRANSMISSION


Things are worse than they ever have been. Bus fell straight through a dark part of the road and is sticking out the other end. I can't see anything on the other side. The door's jammed, and we wouldn't get very far in this hurricane even if it wasn't.

If there is a God, let's hope he'll save us.

Please.

THAT NIGHT, WE FOUND OUT THERE WAS A GOD.

IT IS US.
