I find this disturbingly easy to fap to.
/joke

No seriously. I cant understand much more than a few snippets of the whisperyness: I've never been good at understanding things through any type of distortion. All I can hear is gratuitous wet lip smacking and whispering which sounds both oddly seductive and creepy as heck to me. I'll wait for somebody to transcribe that.

I know there was something about why Milo commited suicide and stuff. The one liners in this entry were great by the way; the one observer line about his "language, mr. maxell!" made me giggle, as well as "And your tall friend too!" however much that also made me shake my head in sorrow at the hopelessness.

The recap of all the files in the library was pretty awesome, and I'd love the BLIND DEAF AND DUMB picture as a desktop, cause that thing was so psychedelic.

In summary: INTERESTING. Verrrry interesting.

EDIT:
Somebody on Unfiction has been so kind as to have already transcribed it
"Slendery on UF":
 

I fookin love the Allegory of the Cave references. Absolutely amazing job on the whole thing, Hats off to everybody involved in T12 for this one. I love it.

I have the exact same problem with understanding distorted speech Vivi, thanks for adding the transcript here! ... Er, apaprently it's in the video description now as well, but I saw it here first, so my "thank you" stands =P

Gotta say, this video alone made me love this series as a whole even more. Really digging the use of technology here... makes the Observer seem more Earthly in a way, but I like that. Gives me a bit of hope that he might be defeated someday. I mean, he won't, but a girl can hope, right?? It's a nice contrast to the constant "you can never defeat Him, you can only prolong the inevitable" theme that's so prominent in the mythos.

This video also cements the Observer as my favorite proxy in all the vlogs. He actually has a sense of humor and a personality (er, many personalities together if he's a hive mind, I guess), and I find that awesome. Might be a bit biased because I like snippy villains, though.

So yeah. I do wish the Observer's speech was a bit easier to understand, but that's probably more due to my issue with speech comprehension than anything. Can't wait for the next video =3

And a bit off topic, but you have a nice voice Adam. You should definitely do a narration of "Go the Fuck to Sleep" sometime -w-

Interesting, you know, i thought when the message was playing that it wasn't a recording but that the device was being used as a sort of communication device. I mean, it has bit a mic and a speaker. I am hopin the next enry will be him going to the trail with the journal...whatever that is...

Welp. I'm pretty sure that the speech was being made by a woman. The clearest voice other than the deep creepy distorted one was definately female, and I'm not sure there are any effects that can do it that well.

As somebody who often gets called "sir" on the phone, as well as "miss" dependant entirely on my mood(and where my vocal register is), I can say with certainty that means nothing. Maybe its because of the whispering, but its a voice on a pretty fine line I wouldn't feel comfortable assigning any gender, to be honest.

Even putting aside who was the actual physical body that projected the voice we heard, It has been said previously that the observer is many personalities/identities, so it may very well be only one of several voices of the observer.

TBH, I think the voice sounded like a mix of a male and a female voice together. I think it's supposed to hint at the Observer's lack of gender.

Another brilliant video, really pushing on the creepy tones again.

Already worried for the next entry though. He's made it clear in this video that he's gonna be searching his house for more evidence. This leads to two problems:

A: Just WHAT is he going to end up finding?

B: How annoyed is The Observer going to be at Noah not following his instructions again. What is the backlash going to be?

I mean Noah's clearly pushing back against The Observer and all this crap he's got to deal with. Surely Observer is going to push back harder?

Ever since the Observer entered the story I have picked up on very strange and creepy science vibe.

Observer mentions the eyes like they are actually a representation of some paranormal existence. That's what I love so much. The show draws me in so well that I feel guilty for wanting Noah to just go and give himself up to Slendy so the mysteries behind it can be revealed.

The voice sounded like it had a lisp, but one caused by having to many or to large teeth, just like that thing with the one eye in the center of its forehead had. The thing about the voice recording was that it knew when Noah was cursing, I think it wasn't a recording when he first listened to it. The observer must have more bugs in hi house and knew exactly when he was going to plug it in then started speaking to him. Through some technological bullshit, as the Observer was speaking it recorded onto the device and had the date of being created change to the week Noah was out for.

I think the proxies are byproducts of what happens when you mix the paranormal with the technological.
As far as the Observer is concerned, I've always seen him/her as someone who was capable of utilizing both. Clearly with its previous skills in hacking Noah's accounts and computer. But also in this video with the creepy 'This may be a recording or me actually talking to you' type thing.
Also, I like to think of the "language, Mr. Maxwell" line is a great nod to all the cursing complaints he's been getting lately. Not just from this forum but from other places as well.

The voice is a moot point, becuase you can do essentially anything with a proper voice mod. It could be any gender, any age. I appreciate both the cursing joke, which made me laugh, and the actual limit on his cursing. He used it more sparingly and in the right places for release of tension, and comic effect. Well done sir.



Although I was initially slightly put off by the fact that the video became a radio drama halfway through, and it started feeling slightly stiff and unnatural, it actually grew on me after a bit. It was very well narrated, even if it isn't entirely natural.



The only complaint I could possibly have is the flimsy excuse to use a personal computer. I'm sure there is a place where you could plug that sucker in without endangering your own electronics. Go to a loud internet cafe, plug in headphones, or hell, use Ed's computer; he doesn't seem necessarily bright enough to protest. He's the the technical wizardy, but I'm not getting a real bright bulb vibe off of him.



whatever. I guess it was more asthetically pleasing for the story itself. Nevertheless, I applaude the improving effort, propwork and acting.

He doesn't want to get others involved though, he's trying to keep them safe so they won't have to deal with his shit as well.

But then why is he making a popular internet video series?



Ah, I'm just nitpicking, no biggie. Mostly, its just that if it were me, every poor sap in my general vacinity would be so damn screwed. I would wait until Ed left the room, Jack his computer and damn the consiquences XD

Well it just goes to show you, if you find out Slenderman exists: HE WILL HUNT YOU DOWN AND MAKE YOUR LIFE A LIVING HELL.

Also, good for Noah for being super-smart when plugging that device into the Library computer, you never know when he's going to give you some weird porno.... or one of his art films.

...Is it just me, or does that voice sound male, female, and neither at the same time?

I didn't understand anything except 'Language, Mr. Maxwell' until I read the transcription. Oh holy shit, that's a well written piece of villainy right there.

One thing's for sure, if I found that shit in my house, the word 'fuck' would be more overexposed than Party Rock Anthem on your local radio station.

Well played, TribeTwelve. Well played indeed.

Nice video, as always. Observer is as creepy as all hell. Also...

another little tacked on note. So far, from the last 6 videos(including this one), it says:

I must say, a really unique way to carry out a bit of cryptic exposition. The next video is obviously going to take place on the boardwalk, and when that video comes out, I'm sure something big is going to go down.
One thing I've been wondering about the Device, is that, I don't truly believe it was placed there to spy on Noah- even though there is proof that it does so- but with the beeping, and all of the information on the Device, I feel like its whole purpose was so Noah would find it.

I agree completely with DeHoed; the Observer knew that Noah would find it, knew when he would find it, and to top it all off he even knew when Noah was going to start swearing his head off.

...Maybe the Observer is the old fortune teller lady from the carnival that Noah forgot to tip when he was a kid.

I don't see why it couldn't have been meant both for spying and for him to find. It could have been used to spy on Noah until he found it and probably to get him to feel more paranoid by letting him know that they've been listening to him. And of course they wanted him to listen to the message and get those files as well, so I'm thinking it served a number of purposes.

I don't think Noah's going to be heading for the boardwalk quite yet. I'm thinking possibly we might find out what those files are. Or maybe something about that journal the Observer mentioned, since I believe this is the first time that's been brought up (unless I forgot something). But the boardwalk is where they've wanted him to go since the nature trail incident, and I don't think he's quite ready yet to just listen and do as they say.

XDD best be TROLLIN!



hey what can I say, I just wish tribes was meeting the potential it had when I first started watching it * shrug* but its been the same thing over and over again...

find a box Noah gets scared.

find an envelope, Noah gets scared.

find a recording, Noah gets scared.



actually "find" is not even really accurate... that would assume some exploration. Now that I think of it... everything Noah has received has been delivered to his home..



perhaps I'm wrong... maybe Noah isn't his own operator... maybe its Fed Ex! @____@
