Tribe Twelve
tt000.jpg

My YouTube channel for my project on The Twelve Tribes of Israel.
Update: The class project was canceled.
Update: This channel will now serve as a memorial for my late cousin, Milo Asher. RIP.
Update: This channel will document my investigation into my cousin's death and other odd occurrences.

The Tribe Twelve video account concerns one man in his attempts to resist the machinations of an otherworldly monster and its closer-to-home extensions. Indeed, the well-intentioned bystanders watching online cannot trust in the safety of his home, or anyone’s, or anywhere –because insanity and paranoia cannot be irrational in places where the nightmares are real.

  • November 6, 2010 – Noah tweets that “the panic attacks come in waves now. I'm close to having a mental breakdown”
    • November 11, 2010 – the Twitter is hijacked with gibberish, a coded message (“He took me to the dark place today. No light graces this place”), an image of a screen displaying 4:44 and 11:11, and an un-spaced string of ones and “hellothere” ending in “watchingwaitingforyou~”
    • Hijack video “HELLOTHERE” is a series of vivid imagery displayed in absolute black-and-white, addressing Noah with vague threats and warnings written in scratchy text
    • November 12, 2010 – Noah discovers the hijack and claims not to have posted any of it

    • November 26, 2010 – Sarah finds Noah covered in blood, laughing maniacally and charging at her with the knife

  • December 3, 2010 – Noah wakes up to a nosebleed and finds a letter with “Token” written on it upon returning home
    • December 4, 2010 – Noah opens the Token Letter, finding a drawing of the Administrator, a tissue and bag of pills with notes mocking Noah’s sickness, a dissected flash drive, broken key, leaves, and a fortune
    • December 5, 2010 – Noah watches “ULTIMATUM”, a video from the flash drive in the same style as “HELLOTHERE”; it instructs him to look deeper, so he searches the bottom of the box and finds a recurring symbol of two intersecting eyes
    • December 6, 2010 – once Noah posts all of these findings in “The Token Letter”, the prominence of the word “observing” among all the clues prompts everyone to dub his stalker “the Observer”
  • December 7, 2010 – on Twitter, Sarah notes that one of the clips from the flash drive video shows her house, so Noah acknowledges the possibility that the Observer was there

  • January 12, 2011– Noah calls Milo’s stepfather, John Fletcher, and learns that Mary Asher has been paranoid about a man called “Mr. Slim” for as long as John can remember and once confronted him with a knife, claiming that he was “working for him”

    • January 30, 2011 – Noah finally reviews the Thanksgiving footage, posting the first part February 2, 2011 and the second part the following day

    • February 19, 2011 – Noah finds a hidden folder called “ghostroot” containing malicious-looking files; opening one of them yields an error message from the Observer and deletes the entire folder, causing Noah to realize that the Token Letter’s flash drive has monitored him since December
  • March 13, 2011 – Noah returns to the Victor Park nature trail, finding notes from the Observer on the tower and encountering the Administrator; his tweets along the way get corrupted as the Observer takes him to “the dark place”
    • March 16, 2011 – Observer video “COMECLOSER” demands that Noah comply to the will of an unspecified “we”, himself included, so as to not be taken again
    • Over the next few days, the Observer hijacks Formspring with posts about how he has transcended humanity among others called the Collective, claiming not to be Milo but to have played a role in his death (“heisapartofusnow”); on Twitter, he has players answer a riddle and sends correct ones the file “tagebuch.jpg”, an image of a journal –the object of Karl’s to which the Observer alluded on Formspring
    • March 20, 2011 – Noah returns home, unable to remember his week-long disappearance or change his profile picture; the Observer has written “USELESS” on Noah’s knife and drawn the symbol on Noah’s hand
    • March 24, 2011 – as Noah uploads the “Nature Trail Visit” video, the Observer hijacks it with more messages about “playing” (an ability previously shown by his insertion of hidden frames into the videos)

    • June 12, 2011 – Noah records his parents telling him about the house fire from his childhood, in secret to ensure that they tell him the full truth; the Administrator was apparently there, just as it is in the background as they speak
    • June 16, 2011 – Noah receives an envelope marked with purple duct tape whose contents imply a connection between Milo and one “Dr. C”, the sender specifying that they are “NOT AN OBSERVER”
    • June 17, 2011 – Noah uploads “Summer Update”, “Secret Parent Interview”, and “The Envelope”, the last of which convinces viewers of the Everyman HYBRID channel that Noah has found a connection to them

  • August 2, 2011 – a three-tone beep interrupts Noah’s description of another nightmare about the boardwalk, so he eventually traces its source to a device planted by the Observer; he then follows the sound of yelling and thumping to the closet, finding it empty save for a rubber eyeball
    • Noah has his tech friend Edward analyze the device; it is composed of a speaker, pager, 9-volt battery, computer fan, solar panel, and USB cable, definitely meant to monitor him

    • August 5, 2011 – Noah plugs the device with its resoldered wires into a library computer, the hidden folder on it showing that it had been around since the nature trail incident (March 13) and had recorded him for 24 hours on August 1 and 2, 2011
  • August 29, 2011 – Noah holds a livestream that gets cut off by Observer video “INTERRUPTION”, which references assimilation in the midst of the usual taunts; Noah finds the video on his channel due to it not playing on his end, and finds a note reading “I’M WAITING” after the police search turns up nothing
  • September 16, 2011 – Noah arrives in New York, first to visit family and then to meet the EverymanHYBRID boys in New Jersey; there is an Administrator appearance on the plane that he cannot remember, and Karl does not let him in because “it is not the right time”
    • September 17, 2011 – Noah and the EverymanHYBRID boys (Vince, Evan, and Jeff) discuss the envelope, whose unburnt letter has since been discovered and shows that Doctor Corenthal (who has been a sort of past-life connection for the group) met Milo as a child after he leapt from a park ranger’s tower (“not his fault. Man made him do it”), giving him the same journal he was shown using in 2008; the envelope was sent by HABIT, a non-Collective entity that has manipulated the EverymanHYBRID group
    • September 23, 2011 – Noah returns home
  • October 20, 2011 – the Observer posts a Twitter image with “11-11-11” written on it

    • November 4, 2011 – Noah returns home

    • The Administrator appears in Noah’s hallway and the gun he bought proves useless, forcing him back to the hotel where he eventually goes to sleep
    • November 11, 2011 – Noah searches for the Observer after he pulls him out of bed, instead encountering a silhouetted figure with pinhole eyes and a smile; the Administrator and Collective take Noah again

    • November 13, 2011 – the Observer posts Twitter images of Noah struggling in the Administrator’s grasp as other silhouettes, presumably the Collective, stand by and watch
    • November 15, 2011 – Observer video “HAPPYBIRTHDAY” elaborates that Noah must take the “untouchable” journal to the boardwalk at dusk, the “incentive” being that he will reveal himself in the visage of “an old friend”; he also calls it Noah’s last birthday

    • November 18, 2011 – the Observer returns Noah to his hotel room with mocking writing on his body
    • November 19, 2011 – Noah is furious at the Observer, and then at players for letting him post the image; he later apologizes due to their good intentions and returns home, unable to remember why his gun is missing and only now revealing that he had one

  • December 18, 2011 – Noah tweets that his camera’s footage includes scenes of Kevin holding cue cards, and that he now remembers seeing the man with pinhole eyes without ever identifying him (the footage of that entire stretch of time having been difficult to recover)
  • January 6, 2012 – the “November 11th” video includes an Observer segment implicating Noah as an inevitable recruit to the Collective; the hidden frame identifies the man with pinhole eyes as Firebrand, and the scene of Kevin reveals his resemblance to the Observer
  • February 14, 2012 – the Observer interrupts Noah’s Valentine’s Day livestream with a series of tweets that establish the Administrator’s title and include images of relevant Collective members; Noah learns over the phone with his mother and Sarah, respectively, that John Fletcher and Kat were recently murdered –Sarah suspecting his involvement in the latter instance due to reports of a man with a torn shirt

  • August 17, 2012 – Noah recaps what has happened outside his YouTube channel, including that Sarah’s death by multiple stab wounds was ruled a suicide and that one of the “independent investigators” Noah has contacted has purportedly found an obscure organization’s manifest containing Mary’s name
  • August 20, 2012 – Sam, the conspiracy theorist investigator, shows Noah the 1985 Manifest with Mary’s name and informs him that Chris and Alex from the Dark Harvest channel would know about its cult of origin, the Order
    • August 24, 2012 – Noah goes to New Jersey and meets Daniel Shipman, the friend of Chris and Alex who has promised to drive Noah home
    • Noah meets Chris and Alex, who only agree to help him talk to the Order under the condition that he keep their involvement a secret and stay safe due to the cult’s violent nature; that night, he receives a note to get in from their ex-friend, Jesse
    • August 25, 2012 – Noah gleans few answers about Mary’s involvement in the cult from its Overseer (except that she was recruited by an elder named Henka Visæ), and being ambushed by other members causes him to give away Chris and Alex’s names; the Administrator appears first to attack the cultists, and then outside the car to warp Noah, Chris, and Alex away
    • August 29, 2012 – the group find themselves on a beach in daylight, which is where Chris and Alex leave Noah on account of his broken promise; Noah calls Daniel for a ride and learns that three days have passed
    • Noah apologizes to the Dark Harvest guys over Twitter and links to their video of events, uploading his own in September
  • October 11, 2012 – the Observer posts a Twitter image warning about November 11; Noah responds that he is not giving into the Observer’s demands and will hold a livestream that day, not taking note of the faint text in a different style reading “not if I can help it” in the image

  • November 9, 2012 – Noah receives an envelope from the Observer containing a note from Kevin (“Kill me I’m only a tool/He can’t use my body then”) and the same rubber eyeball Noah found in “The Device”

  • November 11, 2012 – Noah holds the livestream drunk, surviving 11:11 PM due to the interference of someone signing his tweets as “~F”; just as his annoyance at not dying is turned to grief and fear, Noah encounters himself staring back at him with the camera
    • The Observer interrupts the livestream with a message about Noah’s assimilation, which Firebrand intercepts with his own message about how he is protecting Noah and always has been through such hidden messages as the “river’s flow” quote from the box; some of his instructions to Noah are omitted due to the Administrator, and the Observer furiously takes back the video to demand that Noah disregard Firebrand’s advice
    • August 2, 2011 – due to Firebrand directing Noah away from the Collective’s realm to “elsewhere”, Noah leaves the rubber eyeball in his closet while locked inside and screaming to catch his past self’s attention

  • September 2, 2013 – Noah opens the briefcase with the code “642010”, finding the Sudoku Rubik’s Cube, a letter from Milo, Milo’s journal, a pair of shoes with a DV tape inside one of them, and nearly $100,000 in hundred dollar bills; a future version of Noah appears and says “it wasn’t easy, but you can thank me later”
    • September 8, 2013 – Chris calls Noah to ask for $1,000 because the murder of his and Alex’s families have forced them to live on the run; Noah is reluctant due to his distrust of the money (and Chris’ claim as it coincides with his discovery), so Chris offers to prove it by posting the video –which he ultimately does
    • September 15, 2013 – Noah tweets “at a crossroads. What would you do for a friend in need?”
    • November 3, 2013 – Noah calls Chris back to say that he will send $2,000, apologizing again for his meeting with the Order

    • September 29, 2013 – date displayed on Noah’s phone as he wanders unnaturally shifting streets in search of a bridge that Firebrand tells him to find via text; he meets Jeff there despite HABIT having murdered him, and HABIT reappears to say that Noah should disregard Jeff’s advice of suicide and instead “do what I asked… sorry, do what you want to do”

  • December 12, 2014 – beginning of eight months wherein the journal pressures Noah to open it and identifies the area under his desk as “the crawlspace”; he cannot bring himself to force the journal open or burn it when tempted, and on one night the Observer follows Noah with a knife

    • The Observer tricks Noah into climbing a watchtower’s now-infinite stairs and pushes him into an impossibly long fall after the journal tempts him to jump down for it; Kevin leads Noah to a building called “Museum of Medical History”, and he collapses shortly after returning to the boardwalk through its automatic doors
    • The Observer hijacks the Twitter to answer six viewer questions
    • At least two days into the Collective realm, Noah is chased by a giant spider; he later encounters a crazier future version of himself who shows him Sebastian’s journal and blade, slashes Noah’s hand with it (which leaves a scar), and provides him with a supernatural 100-sided die

    • September 17, 2015 – Noah tweets to confirm his return (“a week it says. but it was longer. a month. counted the days. saw things. dont even want to touch camera. i was in hell”)
  • October 31, 2015 – Firebrand video “DEATHTRAPEXODUS” addresses Noah about the lesson he has learned about the Collective realm, how he must now apply Severance to Milo’s journal, and how “the dark times” and “flood” will follow his opening of Sebastian’s journal; the Observer hijacks the video, more unstable than ever
  • November 11, 2015 – Noah opens Milo’s journal (“never been harder to turn a page. feels like dissecting a corpse. a solemn birthday”)

  • July 4, 2016 – Reddit user Scriniarii posts a message to /r/TribeTwelve about how “the sensum will take the keyword and submit it to the archive”; this would eventually get them banned after enough repetition in following months
    • September 26, 2016 – Firebrand video “SCRINIARII” reprimands players for their treatment of Scriniarii, actually an ally of his from the Collective; they solve an ensuing puzzle by discovering two unlisted videos, one of which shows a second page of the Order manifest, and Noah verifies on Twitter that he has never heard of Scriniarii
    • October 16, 2016 – Scriniarii, having given a vague non-answer to players’ vague non-question in a Reddit Q&A (“What info can you give us that Noah does not yet know, but needs to?”: “All of it”), provides another puzzle leading them to a text file; in it, he describes reliving his loved ones’ deaths because players (“Sensum”) fail not to act as individuals or understand “the loop”
    • October 22, 2016 – in a coded message, Scriniarii thanks the sensum for building a “Comprehensive Timeline”, as this protects the loop; a week later, he directs them to two YouTube videos about temporal paradoxes
  • November 11, 2016 – Noah starts his hosting of the Journal of Milo Asher on a blog called “Noah Maxwell's Archive”, which he protects using the Severance symbol; Scriniarii tells sensum to “protect the archive, protect the loop”

  • April 29, 2017 – Stan Frederick posts a video, “29. Neighbors” which briefly shows him outside Noah’s door asking to talk while Noah yells at him to leave; this prompts a back-and-forth on YouTube and Twitter
  • May 2, 2017 – Scriniarii provides conditions under which sensum may select five potential recipients of a “device”
