Objects

Some physical objects have been sought as a potential hindrance to the Slender Man while others stand as records of its nebulous attributes. Still others are the last traces of victims’ transient existence in this world.

Original Mythos

  • Found Photographs: these concern a missing teenagers incident, an elementary school fire, a crime scene, a dilapidated house, the death of Hilary Foster and disappearance of her daughter and two friends, a photographer’s disappearance, a Slender Man appearance in an open field, an appearance among children, and an old building.
    • Indeed, abandoned cameras and photographs are ubiquitous enough for one poster in the Original Mythos Meta to posit that “it looks like the best way to avoid being attacked by Slenderman is to avoid cameras. In the vast majority of attacks (outside of victims wandering into creepy forests) Slenderman seems to leave some sort of photographic evidence. Of course now with cellphones and security cameras everywhere, there's almost nowhere in the world you could go that would really be safe.”
  • Garbage Bags: these have been known to contain victims’ organs in the Steinmen Woods, Optic Nerve, Missing Family, and Mr. Sanderson cases. One poster in the Original Mythos Meta even asked “are they really plastic or something that the slender man makes naturally from his body?”
  • Journals: these figure into the accounts of Der Großmann, From the Journal of Dr. Jeffrey Scripter, Optic Nerve, Patient of Dr. Bronn, Miscellaneous Journal Entries, Small Findings, Dorothy Birch, Remains of Missing Camper, Superstition, Delgado and the Abandoned Journal.
  • Drawings: adults’ drawings of the Slender Man can be seen in the Optic Nerve, Henry Coe, Small Findings, Jessica Samson, and Original Mythos Images accounts while children’s can be seen in the Jake Greenwood, Small Findings, Appalachian Trail Incident, Psychologist’s Notes, and Josef Franz accounts.
  • Tapes: known to show or reference the Slender Man in the Henderson Horse Farm, Optic Nerve, Transcript 21, Disappearance of Boy, Deadly House Fire, Marble Hornets Preamble, Found Footage, Recorded Witness Hearing, Seance, and Windsor Pines accounts.
  • Pipes: found to contain frozen blood after the disappearance of 308 staff of [REDACTED] Institute in one of the Stirling City Incidents.
  • Receipts: during the Stirling City Incidents, one was found in the pocket of then-unresponsive Dr. [REDACTED], the only surviving subject from the institute; retrieved December 23, 2003, its date of January 4, 2004 corresponds to the date of his death by internal hemorrhaging with Katrina Elkins’ finger lodged in his appendix. Another dated June 15, 1997 is the one potential identifier of an unresponsive patient sent to the Hamilton Psychiatric Hospital.
  • Chest: an entry from the Journal of Dr. Jeffrey Scripter calls it “the only item of psychological interest” to Douglas Reynolds, an unresponsive patient who would eventually rouse the entire catatonic ward into screaming and suddenly die. The journal ends before Scripter can verify if the chest of Reynolds’ late grandfather’s possessions contains any answers.
  • Der Ritter Woodcuts: two danse macabre woodcuts by artist Hans Freckenberg in the 1540s. His disappearance in 1543 coincided with a mysterious plague in the Halstberg castle and nearby village the same year.
  • Rosary: one grandmother puts rosary beads under the pillow of her grandchild, who continues to do so following her death in an attempt to protect against Fear Dubh.
  • Jozef’s Picture: image of the Slender Man which becomes the object of the maddened Jozef’s obsession before his untimely death and which his great-grandson ultimately discovers, relating it to his own childhood encounter with the Slender Man.
  • Detector Images: records of how technology responds to the Slender Man.
  • Small Findings: physical objects among these include the embroidered napkin of a psychiatric ward inmate, mountaineering journals, books of LIFE magazine photos, an adult’s drawing from their psychiatric evaluation, a child’s drawing found in a day care parking lot, and a drawing left on a forum user’s windshield wiper as a warning.
  • Three Ages of Woman and Death: Renaissance painting by Hans Baldung Grien, a contemporary of Hans Freckenberg; X-Ray analysis has revealed extra limbs on the figure of Death.
  • Rodzby Incident Envelope: slipped under the door of forum user Rodzby at 4:00 AM, this water-stained envelope contains a mobile phone with two Slender Man pictures on it, insect eggs, and a note indicating that its sender reveres the Slender Man (“I’ve seen things you cannot concieve of. And I am thankful for his instruction”). The phone reportedly rings without a SIM card, and the user’s only other post after that point was an image of his neighborhood in which a corpse can be seen on the bottom right and the Slender Man at the top right.
  • Radios: both the Derek and Comment Chain pages involve these crackling and cutting out in the Slender Man’s presence.
  • The Observations: a grimoire written by one Nathaniel V describing the unpredictable nature of the “Transformed Man”.
  • Atlantic Historical Review: a passage of Dr. Bernard Thompson’s thesis on “The Diffusion of Gallic Archetypes into Roman Society” is the only lead on his disappearance.
  • Water Pail: the only trace of Lily, a girl whose disappearance was recounted in Ghost Stories of the American South.
  • Rock: the weapon unwittingly used by Dorothy Birch, under the Slender Man’s compulsion, to kill her sister.
  • Safety Deposit Box: source of Lieutenant Henry Louis Marshall’s final letter.
  • Grady Sizemore Louisville Slugger: baseball bat used by the young Jimmy in a vain attempt to save his Little Brother Chris from the Slender Man.
  • Shoebox: Carlos, a deceased young anthropologist studying Mayan legends about Ceiba Trees, left behind a shoe box containing corn seeds and troubling photographs from his research.

Marble Hornets

  • Cameras: the instrument of Jay and Alex’s paranoia as exposure to the Operator convinces them to film constantly. One of Jay’s breaks after an encounter with it while another lasts long enough for Tim to take it up after Jay’s death.
    • Chest-Mounted Camera: once a possession of Alex’s with a special case and external hard drive revealing Alex’s murder of a stranger in the Rosswood Park tunnel, Jay steals it from his car and wears it before and after the Operator erases his memory. Tim wears it through the Ark twice, the second time being what breaks it.
  • DV Tapes: the primary records of events before their contents are uploaded to the Marble Hornets channel online. Alex and Brian (as the hooded man) have been known to hide lone tapes of significant events, although only the latter intends for them to be found.
    • Alex’s Tapes: “upwards of a hundred” unlabeled and unordered tapes from 2006 that Alex gave to Jay in plastic bags. Most stand as a record of Alex’s paranoia rather than his progress on the Marble Hornets student film for which they were intended, and the most significant became Entries on the Marble Hornets channel.
    • Jay’s Tapes: taken from April 21, 2010 through November 22, 2010, these inform Jay of everything that occurred during the seven months he cannot remember.
    • Tim’s Tapes: behind-the-scenes footage of the Marble Hornets student film which Tim gives to Jay in 2012, not remembering the footage they contain of Alex attacking him nor of the event itself.
    • Burnt Tapes: hidden by Alex in a hole by the red tower primarily because they involved Amy, unlike any of the tapes he gave to Jay.
  • Masks: worn semi-voluntarily by some especially vulnerable to the Operator’s influence.
    • Tim’s Mask: white porcelain mask that is black around the eyes, lips, and rim. Tim ultimately disposes of it before leaving the downtown area for good.
    • Brian’s Mask: black cloth mask with eyes and a frown composed of orange cloth; attached to a tan hoodie and worn with black gloves to hide his entire body.
    • Skull Mask: mask shown only once on a tape that Alex sends to Jay, which would become “Entry #26”. Its wearer, if any, remains unknown.
  • Pills: the one known weakness of the Operator due its reliance on victims’ mental vulnerability. Brian, as the hooded man, frequently steals them from Tim.
  • Alex’s Drawings: hastily and obsessively created charcoal drawings featuring trees, the Operator, the Operator symbol, brief paranoid phrases, and, in one case, crossed-out names of the Marble Hornets cast and crew.
  • Jay’s Knife: weapon lost in Jay’s first encounter with the masked man, which Tim uses as the masked man to attack Alex in April 2010 and as himself to kill Alex in their final fight.
  • Bullet Casing: found by Jay in the abandoned house and subsequently stolen from his apartment by the masked man.
  • Operator Doll: long-limbed white cloth doll found by Jay in the abandoned house on two occasions, the latter of which shows its position shifting along with the house’s layout. Three years later, the hooded man leaves it for him to find alongside Tim’s medical documents in the hospital maintenance tunnel.
  • Chunk of Cement: makeshift weapon used in 2010 by Alex to break Tim’s leg, Tim as the masked man to hurt Alex, and Alex to finish off a stranger he strangles in Rosswood Park’s tunnel. The unknown cameraman of the “noentry” file discovers it beside the man’s bloodstained white shirt.
  • Key: spare key to Alex’s front door, which Jay steals on his first break-in attempt and uses to steal a tape on his second. Jay rediscovers it after losing his memory and learns of its purpose by watching the tapes.
  • Safe: provision of the hotel whose combination to unlock Jay’s tapes is the last four digits of Jessica’s phone number, “1102”; a note he finds in her ransacked room provides it due to his memory loss.
  • Baby Doll: prop used for totheark video “Indicator” with a phone key for zero (Operator) in its burnt-out eye socket, later reappearing in the abandoned shack at Rosswood Park.
  • Alex’s Gun: weapon Alex uses on multiple occasions, once stolen by the hooded man but ultimately used by Alex to kill Jay.
  • Paintings: among other items in the antique store, Jay draws attention to one of these for the fact that “the person in the center has a weird face. It's just two circles and a nose. But the rest of the picture is so detailed.”
  • Medical Documents: left for Jay by the hooded man in the hospital maintenance tunnel in a folder labeled “LiAr”, these heavily-redacted documents entail how Tim was admitted to the hospital as a child for mental illness related to the Operator.

Just Another Fool

  • Logan’s Watch: a gift to Logan for graduating high school but received after his sophomore year of college, this watch displaying 2:37 in the first post alerted players to the right time to call him following his descent into madness.
  • Journal of Matthew Selby: a Moleskine journal Logan gave to Matt for his Iraq service, which he filled with Slender Man imagery after encountering it and developing PTSD. Logan receives it and writes in it while going mad from the revelation it provides him, prompting his friend Joshua to send it to player Dav Flamerock on UnFiction for examination.
  • Journal of Logan Renault: Logan sends player Tetsuyabh on UnFiction this Moleskine journal (the lined one he originally intended to give Matt) claiming that he is temporarily immortal and understands the Slender Man’s true nature. Each dated entry is listed as 2:37 PM.
    • “Conscious Beings” Pages: players DavFlamerock, zygotesix, and R. Erbs on UnFiction all received pages from Logan’s journal confirming them as instances of the “only Nine Truly Conscious Beings” in existence, Joshua’s page warning that he was next. The journal itself includes pages for Logan, the Slender Man, and two unidentified people: you, and the child born to replace Matt.

Everyman HYBRID

  • White Cloth Doll: “souvenir” allegedly given to Evan by a little girl but actually, like the drawing mannequin in the background of the fitness videos, part of the “fake Slender Man” joke before it goes awry.
  • Mouse Doll: toy that says “I like you”; shown for laughs in an early fitness video but later turning up burnt with its audio in reverse by the “shrine” of photographs.
  • Knives: notable as Evan’s weapon of choice, to the point that he collects them.
  • Purple Duct Tape: considered a calling card for HABIT, as is the color purple in general, due to its presence on and near hidden boxes and other clues.
  • Stephanie’s Art: as an art student at Princeton, Stephanie’s drawings and paintings sometimes relate to the Slender Man or include a rabbit motif, as seen here.
  • Wristbands: purple rubber wristbands reading “EverymanHYBRID”; the boys planned on distributing them to viewers but, due to technical difficulties, could only send one to stormoftara (SA) for winning the promotion contest.
  • First Hidden Box: one of seven, discovered by TheGreenFeathers on UnFiction. The wooden box has several ominous phrases carved into it and contains a page that reads “Consider this a place of refuge, not from the waters, but from damnation.”
    • Defaced Photographs: originally found as a “shrine” with purple duct tape in Evan’s basement and later turning up in the box, these photographs of the group’s Baldpate Mountain trip have been burnt and scribbled over.
    • Coordinates: the boys received one half of the note with the Princeton, New Jersey coordinates on the same day as Stephanie received the other. In a later livestream, Vince attempts to show their note to viewers and brings back hers without noticing the discrepancy.
  • Hamsa: a hand symbol often used in jewelry as a ward against evil, most commonly in Middle Eastern Judaism. Jeff gives a hamsa necklace to Jessa, and Stephanie considers hanging up hamsa charms in the hopes of bringing Jessa home. Finding the necklace in Centralia finally convinces Jeff of her death, so he buries it for HABIT’s Trial One (Vince buries a limited edition copy of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Evan buries one of his knives, and Alex buries a shotgun shell).
  • Garbage Bags: again shown to contain remains of the Slender Man’s victims, most notably Steph’s family and Alex. The boys’ first discovery of some in the woods was preceded by Evan’s nightmare of finding them after a series of child disappearances.
  • Second Hidden Box: one of seven, discovered by Quiddler on Something Awful. The wooden sliding box contains a defaced EverymanHYBRID business card, a pendant with a bird on one side and “HABIT” on another, and a note reading “Time and space flee every which way, disregarding your beloved logic.”
    • Coordinates: Stephanie finds a box with purple duct tape outside her door, containing a pendant and the coordinates to Mercer County Park, New Jersey.
  • House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski: a copy of the book has appeared in the background of several videos and, most importantly, in Jeff’s room following his temporary disappearance with a passage circled (“Why did god create a dual universe?”)
  • USB Drives: one from Jeff’s room contains the “78of76.avi” and “77of76.avi” videos, footage of the Baldpate Mountain trip that seemingly contradicts the reality of known events. Another, sent to Evan, shows surveillance footage of Alex after being attacked by the Rake. Yet another from Jeff’s room has a video of Alex describing his occasional inability to upload videos.
  • Corenthal Letters: written by Dr. James Corenthal between 1971 and 1995, Jeff finds a limited selection of these in his burnt-out elementary school detailing previous lives of himself and his friends. His copies are later destroyed –apparently by the Rake, although he blames rodents.
  • Postcard: one reading “Greetings from the Land of Ashen Waste” was sent to Jeff by HABIT (based on his name in the lower left corner) as a potential lead on Jessa’s disappearance that actually directed them to Centralia, Pennsylvania.
  • Linnie Notes: the boys find one note from Linnie to an unknown recipient (“the sight of its black eyes, those markings”) in the elementary school and another whose recipient’s name is smeared out in blood (“someone else knows about the doctor”) in her body’s hand.
  • Third Hidden Box: one of seven, discovered by FlyingWarhorse on UnFiction. The box is a hollow book containing three defaced photographs, a page of coded writing (“The good doctor is not so lucky as to be dead. Just dealing with some old habits”), the Corenthal letter dated November 17, 1971, and a note reading “There is no veiling your perception as anything more than an illusion.”
  • The Bag: discovered by ladymatsuyah on UnFiction. The bag contains a Powerade bottle, a note to Linnie from William (“I hope this letter reaches you before you reach that group”), and the Corenthal letter dated May 11, 1971.
    • Coordinates: an EverymanHYBRID business card at the end of a paper trail in Alex’s closet showed coordinates to Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania.
  • Centralia Note: paper divided into four pieces, one of which Jeff found in Centralia beside Jessa’s necklace; all of them combined read “shade’s password to the unreliable narrator”, a reference to a passage of Pale Fire by Vladimir Nabokov wherein the password is “pity”.
  • VII Letter: received by evilcactus on UnFiction. The envelope reads “YOU LET US IN.” and “RK. A DAY IN TH”, while the Corenthal letter dated October 27, 1981 is covered in “VII” in reference to a dream described by DixieWolf (UF).
  • Corenthal Christmas Letter: received by bebravenow on UnFiction. The envelope reads “can youx/ion./AND RUN./not from ti/I'M NOT ONE TO SLASH” and contains the Corenthal letter dated December 26, 1976.
    • Toy Soldier: a Christmas ornament made by Jeffrey of the Mining Town Four and his father prior to the latter’s murders and suicide, later included in the envelope.
  • “Hidden Videos” CD: compilation of hidden videos by player CoffeeCollie, sent to the HYBRID group with the intention that they could see the videos rather than experience past life regression while staring at a screen of static (which is what actually happened).
  • Fourth Hidden Box: one of seven, received by TheNightmareComplex on UnFiction. The scratched wooden box contains part of the Centralia Note (“shade’- pas- t-”) and the Corenthal letter dated February 27, 1975.
    • Alex’s Hat: contained in the same package, Alex was previously shown wearing this orange, fur-lined hat.
  • Fifth Hidden Box: one of seven, discovered by Lookbehindyou on UnFiction in Memory Town, Pennsylvania due to a phantom tweet. The treasure box contains coins, matchbox cars, tarot cards marked with names, a copy of the Everyman morality play (specially notated to describe the roles of Voyeur, Firebrand, and Guardian), and the Corenthal letter dated December 14, 1971.
  • Rocking Horse: item formerly belonging to the Mining Town Four, based on Corenthal’s reaction to placing it in storage during an apparent time loop. Surveillance footage later shows it rocking on its own, and at one point Jeff starts absentmindedly playing with it for upwards of an hour.
  • Black Box Device: previously unidentified object from the storage facility whose “rick-tick-ticketing” in the Slender Man’s presence and upon exposure to the blood of Vince, Evan, Jeff, and Steph (but not Alex) comes from its detection of Sigma radiation, hence the “Rick Tick Tick Goes the Man in the Woods” line from the first box.
  • Microfilm Canister: previously unidentified object from the storage facility that directs Jeff and Vince to the Microfilm Collection dating between 1984 and 2005.
  • Sock Puppet: an object Alex claims is his deceased dog, Sparky, due to an inability to accept her death. However, he later admits that it is not his dog.
  • Tribe Twelve Envelope: received by Noah Maxwell of Tribe Twelve. The envelope reads “ASHES ASHES/WE ALL FALL DOWN” and contains a postcard from one of his videos, a Polaroid picture of Milo and Mary Asher with Corenthal, a piece of the Centralia Note (“unrel- narra-”), and a burnt copy of the Corenthal letter dated July 22 and 23, 1995 (the full copies being discovered by players shortly afterwards).
  • Jester’s Prize: received by MyOrphanedMind on UnFiction, although originally intended for FullRoundAction (UF). The package reads “17th on the 14th, YET NOT THE/SIXTH/ENJOY YOURSELF ON YOUR SPECIAL DAY” and contains Evan’s Bioshock 2 shirt, a rabbit necklace, the undated letter from Corenthal’s colleague’s student, and the final piece of the Centralia Note (“-iable –ator”).
  • Scrap of Cloth: left behind on the Asher property by the Slender Man, this “cloth” made Corenthal “feel slightly ill” and was found to emit Sigma radiation when examined by the student whom Corenthal would later ask about building a device to detect it.
  • Noah Release 1: Corenthal letter dated December 14, 1990 from the storage facility.
  • Surveillance Cameras: HABIT has many tiny cameras planted in the boys’ homes and in the tree at Baldpate, hence surveillance footage in later hidden videos.
    • 500GB Wi-Fi Hard Drive: the boys eventually find this device connecting to all the cameras, apparently solving the problem.
  • Air Horn: Alex’s gift to Jeff, which he eventually uses in an attempt to ward off the Rake and which Vince finds in an amalgam of the group’s houses, hearing the by-then-deceased Alex’s voice along with it.
  • Sixth Hidden Box: one of seven, discovered by TheGreenFeathers on UnFiction. The sheathed knife contains the Corenthal letter dated November 12, 1990 and comes with an ink ribbon dated October 28, 1980.
  • Extra Innings: received by the remaining seven Rabbits. Each letter has a card with a rabbit stamp and the receiver’s Rabbit number on the outside and “think happy thoughts” on the inside, as well as another piece of the ink ribbon dated October 28, 1980.
  • Lady of the Light.pdf: letter discovered by Vince in the amalgam of his friends’ houses and the one at Baldpate, from whence Maryann Corenthal attempted to reach her husband on the other plane.
  • HABIT’s Weapons: in addition to Evan’s collection of knives, these have included chains, axes, and handcuffs.
    • Rex: listed on the EverymanHYBRID Wiki as a major character, “Rex is HABIT's chainsaw, as seen in ‘Breaking the lease’. It is named Rex, not Shaun, as clarified by HABIT to Vinny.”1
  • Old Book: Vince is off-put by finding it in a new bookstore due to the misdirection of “some jackass employee” –surely HABIT, as the book’s section on “Specific Entity Summoning” has new instructions written in that ultimately work because HABIT found them amusing.
  • Twine Dolls: objects Vince finds hanging from his basement’s ceiling sometime after escaping two years of confinement in an apartment. He says “HABIT didn’t do this” and when he touches one on video, footage shows (the now-deceased) Jeff.

Tribe Twelve

  • DV Tape: footage that Noah had taken of himself and Milo in 2008, eventually becoming the first videos Noah would upload to the Tribe Twelve channel after noticing Milo’s strange behavior and the Administrator upon re-watch.
  • Sudoku Rubik’s Cube: Noah owned this since a science fair in grade school and eventually broke it in frustration. Milo offers to fix it by taking it home at the end of his 2008 visit and eventually delivers it, “not solved, but fixed”, in the briefcase.
  • Journal of Milo Asher: lock-and-key diary given to Milo by Doctor Corenthal of Everyman HYBRID. Once Noah obtains it from the briefcase, he finds himself unable to open it with the appropriate key due to the Severance symbol drawn on it. It audibly whispers to him, alternating between abuse and reassurance, prior to his overwriting of the symbol to open it; when asked how it reacted, Noah responded “i dont want to talk about it”.
    • Noah summarizes its written contents as “a flesh token. a group of mad men. an unfortunate father. a relentless con man. a selfish woman. many a paradox. its taken a time to digest.”
  • Box: cardboard box wrapped in black rope, left on Noah’s porch after he follows a series of strange noises. He later finds the Severance symbol at the bottom.
    • Note: reads “N⨂AH” on one side and “THE TRUTH LIES WITHIN/THE RIVER'S FLOW IS WHERE/IT BEGINS/WHEN THE DAWN BREAKS/THE SOUL AWAKENS” on the other –actually a message from Firebrand, hence “He knows what I have done” in the video.
    • Cellphone: flip phone broken on one of its hinges. Its screen only displays glitches, but Noah still receives a call from the Collective on it and retrieves 36 images with a few involving the Administrator.
    • Unraveled DV Tape: once rewound, the damaged footage shows its cameraman exploring Victor Park at night and encountering the Administrator. The footage is the first time Noah sees the Observer.
    • Key: belonging to Noah’s garage.
    • Miscellaneous Electronic Parts: belonging to “various devices, including a VCR, a television, and a video camera”.
  • Knives: one of Noah’s is notable as the weapon he used under the Collective’s influence to kill Kat, while another is notable because the Observer wrote “USELESS” on it after bringing Noah back to the nature trail.
  • Kat’s Goggles: Kat wears these in the Thanksgiving videos and Noah is seen wearing them later, telling multiple lies on how he obtained them before ultimately remembering what the Collective made him do.
  • Token Letter: white envelope left in Noah’s door after the Thanksgiving trip, with “TOKEN” on one side and “OBEY” on the other.
    • Dissected Flash Drive: named “DEARNOAH”, it contains the “ULTIMATUM” video and hidden “ghostroot” folder, the latter of which Noah accidentally deletes by opening one of its executable files. Its real purpose was to track him.
    • Drawing: image of the Administrator at the end of a hallway with the words “WHO IS MORE FOOLISH/THE BOY THAT IS AFRAID OF THE DARK/OR THE MAN THAT IS AFRAID OF THE LIGHT? EXPECTING YOU”; the question mark is written in blood.
    • Tissue: reads “I THOUGHT YOU COULD USE THIS” as a mockery of Noah’s recent nosebleeds.
    • Pills: sixteen in a small plastic bag with the note, “TAKE THESE/YOU’LL FEEL BETTER”
    • Fortune: “The guilty one is not he who commits the sin, but the one who causes the darkness.”
    • Broken Key: purpose unknown.
    • Leaves: apparently taken from the boardwalk due to their resemblance to the ones that Noah would track into his house from warping there over four years later.
  • Journal of Sebastian Kraus: diary of a Nazi soldier containing information on the Administrator’s weakness, later obtained and hidden by Karl Maxwell. The Collective want Noah to give it to them, but it is ultimately what protects him as the renegade Firebrand.
  • Observer’s Notes: the Observer has left Noah miscellaneous taunting notes on the nature trail, after the livestream, and at the hotel. One he left in Milo’s pocket upon his transformation into Mr. Scars reads “YOU HAVE 120 HOURS TO KILL YOUR MOTHER/OR WE WILL KILL YOU/NO FUNNY BUSINESS”.
  • Envelope: elaborating on the Everyman HYBRID example above, the postcard is a frame of the Administrator and a young boy from the unraveled DV tape’s video, with “We’re all just creatures of” in front and “NOT AN OBSERVER/just an old connection/yours,” in back.
  • Device: composed of a speaker, pager, 9-volt battery, computer fan, solar panel, and USB cable. Its rapid three-tone beep meant that Noah was supposed to find it for its files proving it was recording him, had been there since March, and contained a pre-recorded message in which the Observer anticipates what Noah does the first time around.
  • Rubber Eyeball: Noah finds this ball with “TROUBLE SLEEPING?” written on it in his closet the same night he discovers the device. Later, the Observer re-sends it to him in an envelope reading “DELIVER THIS FOR ME” (beside a letter from Kevin begging Noah to kill him to prevent the Observer’s possession) to ensure that Noah delivers it to himself via time travel.
  • Guns: Noah gets one at a pawn shop to fight the Administrator, but it fails and the Observer steals it. Milo, as Mr. Scars, uses one to kill Mary.
  • Pills: in addition to being the instrument of Milo’s alleged suicide, pills play a significant role in the February 14, 2012 livestream as Noah takes some without realizing that the Observer has replaced them with sedatives, encountering the Administrator while paralyzed.
  • 1985 East Coast Assembly Manifest, Page One: given to Noah by an independent investigator as evidence that Mary Asher in a cult called the Order. It also implicates Paul O’Connor, father of Noah’s friend Edward, and the Rainwood, Amsel, and McComber families as shown in Dark Harvest.
    • 1985 East Coast Assembly Manifest, Page Two: a second page of the original, which Scriniarii reveals to players, includes the name of Henka Visæ –the Archvassal who recruited Mary.
  • Karl’s Ammunition Box: where Karl hides Sebastian’s journal along with other items of interest.
    • Nazi Blade: noted by Firebrand as an item required for his plans to proceed. After Noah obtains it in an indeterminate future year, he slashes his 2015 self’s left palm with it and leaves a scar.
  • Mary’s Safe: noted by Firebrand as an item required for his plans to proceed.
  • Obituary Letter: the envelope has the black tape from Mary’s eyes as Cursor and contains the newspaper describing her body’s discovery, four photographs of the crime scene, and a note directing him to answer the door for the briefcase.
  • Mr. Scars’ Briefcase: Noah (at some indeterminate point in the future) delivers the locked briefcase to Milo as Mr. Scars with the gun to kill Mary, and Mr. Scars delivers it to Noah afterwards. Its number code is the upload date of the first video (“642010”) and it contains the Rubik’s Cube, Milo’s journal, and:
    • Shoes: previously given to Milo by Noah.
      • Journal Key: from the torn soles of Milo’s shoes.
      • DV Tape: from inside Milo’s shoes.
    • Fortunes: one from the soles of Milo’s shoes reads “Be cautious while walking into darkness alone”, another from the journal reads “Find the key, learn the lesson”, and one from the tape’s case reads “If you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will gaze into you.”
    • Letter: written to Noah through “the recent extraordinary circumstances of [Milo’s] current existence”.
    • Money Stacks: nearly $100,000 worth of hundred dollar bills. They were present when Mr. Scars initially received the briefcase.
  • HABIT’s Letter: the envelope with purple tape and a sprite of Haunter from Pokémon contains a mocking letter (in comic sans, even!) preceding HABIT’s warping of Noah to New Jersey for a meeting.
  • Fortunes: after the incident with HABIT, Noah starts finding fortune cookies all over his house that he attributes to Firebrand. Their messages lead him on his intended path up to the point of opening Milo’s journal.
  • Scriniarii Device: a small circuit board with a switch that plays a coded message, sent to a sensum delegate in an envelope marked by the Severance symbol.
  • Satchel: bag that Noah uses to carry Sebastian’s journal and the blade after obtaining them. One of Scriniarii’s puzzles to the sensum references its contents and serial number, “826277”.
    • Rag: item from the satchel that Noah's 2015 self uses to bandage his hand after his future self slashes at him.
  • Die: 100-sided die that Noah obtains in 2015 from his future self in the Collective’s realm. It seems to have reality-altering abilities, as one incorrect roll summons the giant spider.

Dark Harvest

  • Kind von der Ritter’s Notes: Kind von der Ritter delivered one reading “Mortem Obire” into Chris’ room at the beginning of events and another reading “THIS ISN’T THE END” with his ability to move through stopped time.
  • Newspapers: one left in Chris’ attic by Kind von der Ritter details the disappearance of Marc McComber in 2001 with months redacted while another Daniel finds digitally details how Heinrich Kaufmann II’s discovery of the Tablet was regarded as a hoax.
  • Garbage Bags: shown to contain organs in multiple instances of Gorr’Rylaehotep killing humans, Order members included.
  • The Black Book: also known as the Collective Knowledge, these words copied into an ordinary journal found by Chris and Alex comprise the Order’s religious text; a group of the cultists steal back this copy by breaking into Chris’ home and stabbing him, but other copies have existed since the 1930s. The first portion describes a Rift in scientific detail while the rest relate to the cult itself.
    • Department of Intelligence Document: a copy enclosed in the book details the technological failure of the Princeton Experiment’s first trial.
  • Tablet of Ancient Wisdom: Ancient Egyptian tablet on the Rite of Gorr’Rylaehotep, a summoning ritual. Heinrich Kaufmann II discovered it in 1906, and after being stolen from the British Museum in the 1930s it was used as the basis for the 1957 Princeton Experiment.
  • Chalkboard: Order diagram of cycles required to summon Gorr’Rylaehotep and spread its influence –as photographed by Chris and Alex in the Rainwood Day Camp and Learning Center.
  • Rainwood Photograph: last surviving record of the Rainwood Incident after a mysterious fire in the camp destroyed all others.
  • Masks: customary to wear in the Order (“upon your face you shall wear a mask, upon your body you shall wear dark clothing”), these have frequently been left behind upon Gorr’Rylaehotep’s killing of the cultists. Most are white, but there has been a red one worn by the Order’s executioner and black-and-white ones worn by Sixth Enclave members.
  • McComber Chest: McComber family heirloom that Chris notices at Heather’s garage sale due to the Order symbol painted onto it. Upon covertly opening it with a skeleton key and stealing the documents inside, he finds that they come from the Department of Defense and pertain to the Princeton Experiment.
  • The Construct: physical base of the Rift built for the Princeton Experiment; exact nature unknown.
  • Floppy Disks: retrieved from the Day Camp by Matt and given to Chris and Alex as potential leads on Greg’s death, ultimately introducing them to the unaired “Unsolved Conspiracies” pilot.
  • Greg’s Tapes: found in Greg’s closet by Jeff, these show Greg’s discovery of the Order, first encounter with Gorr’Rylaehotep, and induction into the Order.
    • Jesse’s Tape: found in Jesse’s room as Chris and Alex abducted him for interrogation, Greg took this footage at the time of his death.
  • Rainwood Papers: Chris, Alex, and Daniel find these in the crate of the Day Camp’s locked room as part of a clue trail from Kind von der Ritter that starts with the key given to Daniel.
  • Flagstone: a clue in the Brandt-Crater Cemetery with the Order symbol on top and a cemetery map on the bottom, which Daniel photographs on his phone before destroying it. Kind von der Ritter’s implication was that a conspiracy surrounded Lawrence Rainwood’s succession as Chief Overseer.
  • Guns: used by the Sixth Enclave to chase the group out of the cemetery and the wider Order to kill Chris and Alex’s families and attempt to kill Heather; also used by Chris and Alex on Matt and four other cultists.
  • Execution Tape: the Order sends Chris an envelope whose enclosed tape shows their execution of Jesse and warning against any more interference from “the Harbingers”.
  • Forged Birth Certificates: Matt gives these to Chris, Alex, and Heather after obtaining them from a friend who used to trade them on the online Silk Road.
  • Duffel Bag: after Daniel goes missing, his business associate Charlie McDowell leaves this cache of his information for Chris and Alex.
