Has no one noticed that the Tribe Twelve symbol looks like the Chzo Mythos (from the quadrilogy of games created by Yahtzee, who does Zero Punctuation) symbol? The two mythoses share many similarities, like the fact that slender man and the tall man look very similar, so maybe it's a nod to Yahtzee's games?

REALLY interesting! When i first saw the observer symbol, I immediately thought it was a super simplified version of a common mandala pattern I've seen before.

Of course there are variations, but that's the best example I could find.

I wouldn't be surprised at all to find out that TT is inspired by such a thing, but if I'm remembering right, according to a conversation I once had with Adam/Nimbus/Noah, it isn't a mandala, and it was just created on a whim.

Still pretty interesting stuff in hindsight, though, especially your find, Slusho.

I doubt TT took anything from any other something.

It's just two eyes cross together, I feel it's the only symbol perfect for the Observer.

If the Chzo Mythos is a nod to the SlenderManMythos, then that would actually be pretty awesome to say he least. I noticed it when someone went off the handle and called Adam out, saying he "stole from Chzo and ripped off [Chzo and some other little known things/series/mythos/whatever]"

Spoiler:
 

Have you people ever wondered why the Tall Man from the Chzo Mythos is almost identical to Slendy?

Chzo came first, so it can't be referencing Slendy.

Yeah, the first game with the Tall Man came out three years before Slender Man was first posted.

Unless this Yahtzee guy was/still is stalked by him or have seen him and made this character that's allmost identical to him?
