The Token Letter

The Token Letter

The Token Letter is the sixteenth video in the TribeTwelve series.


"Now I regret returning home even more."


[shot of the road through the windshield as Noah's driving]

I came home today after several days of living in my car on the highway. Uh, After I left Sarah's house the day after Thanksgiving.

[cut to the walkway up to the front door of Noah's house]

Um, when I got home, I found envelopes sticking out between my front doors. Um, it had no address information or, or any information at all on it besides the word 'Token' on the front, and 'obey' on the back, with an arrow.

[cut to Noah opening the letter on a wooden table]

Inside the envelope there was a bunch of strange shit.

[Noah pulls out a piece of paper from the envelope and examines a leaf that was also inside]

[Noah unfolds the paper to display the note, it shows a childlike drawing of a many-tentacled figure standing down a road]

First there was this note, uh, 'who is more foolish, the boy that is afraid of the dark, or the man that is afraid of the light?' and 'expecting you', this symbol-thing

[the symbol is the Rune Of Severance]

This drawing in the middle. Question mark. I don't know if that's blood or not.

[cut to the next piece of evidence from inside the envelope]

The second note is this piece of tissue paper with some shit written on it.

[The tissue says 'I THOUGHT YOU COULD USE THIS', it seems to be signed with a small Severance Rune in the bottom right corner]

This is, this is obviously making fun of my nosebleeds, mocking me.

[Noah holds up a small plastic baggie]

And then we have this, this little baggie of white pills, uh, there's, I counted there's sixteen pills and they- [audio distortion makes the audio and video skip for a couple of seconds] -have no idea what they are. And inside there's a little note. 'Take these, you'll feel better'. I'm not gonna take these. Fuck you.

[cut to next evidence]

There's a fortune from a fortune cookie in there too. Um, it says 'The guilty one is not he who commits the sin, but the one who causes the darkness.' I dunno if that has any meaning, significance, or whatever.

[cut to Noah holding a broken key]

There's also this key inside as well, uh, it's broken off at the neck and, uh, doesn't really look familiar to me at all.

[Noah drops the key on the table and moves the leaves in-frame]

Weirdly enough, there's a bunch of sticks and leaves inside. I don't even know what the hell I'm supposed to make of that.

[Last piece of evidence]

And uh, finally, we have this. Um, it's a flash drive, USB, and uh- at least the skeleton of one.

[cut to Noah demonstrating what he describes]

I plugged it into my computer to see if it worked and it did. It had this video file on it.

[close up of the computer screen, the file name reads 'ULTIMATUM'. The name of the flash drive can also be read, 'DEARNOAH']

This is what it was.

[cut to video]
[heavily distorted black and white images accompanied by a low humming sound. Behind the images, the words "WE OBSERVE" can be read]
[cut to a high-contrast shot of Milo Asher's grave marker, the word 'ALWAYS' appears to the left of it]
[a shot of what looks like underneath a car, with words on the bottom of the screen, "WE KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING"]
[an outside shot of a house, possibly Noah's, with the words "WHY ARE YOU STALLING" over it]
[a white background with a scratchy black '?']
[what looks like a car tire, possibly in motion, the words "FOLLOWING YOU"]
[footage from "The Unboxing", Noah removing the cassette and all its tape from the box, the words "YOU MUST LOOK" appear near Noah, which fade as the word "DEEPER" appears on the box, the card from the box has been edited to show only and the rune of severance]
[plain background with the words "WE HUNGER"]
[footage of a turkey struggling on the ground]
[footage of what appears to be meat extruded from a grinder, to the left are the words "ENJOY YOUR FEAST", to the right "BUT" appears]
["BUT" carries on into the next shot which appears to have been shot inside a building, portrays someone walking down a hall, making a left, and seeing someone who resembles Milo dead on the floor, looking up, and seeing the Slenderman, tentacles drawn]
[fades to a dark background with the words "WATCH YOUR BACK", the O has been turned into a Slenderman symbol. cryptic laughter accompanies]

[video file ends, cut back to Noah]

[audio is tinny] Uh, [audio loops] update before I was gonna post this video, on a hunch I decided to take another look in the box, the box that was left outside of my house about three months ago and um, there was an area I realized I hadn't looked in beforehand.

[cut to the inside of the box, seemingly empty]

The bottom of the box, it's made of two flaps that could be folded back if you force them hard enough.

[Noah folds back the flaps]

I found this.

[A giant Rune of Severance has been drawn on the bottom of the box]

And this, the symbol has been reoccurring in, in the letter, and the video, and flash drive. I've no fucking idea where it's from or what it means.

[Noah drops the box]

This is- This is really the first time I've been seeing it [he kicks the box aside]

[video cuts ahead]

Also, under the flaps there were two things, uh, another fortune. 'the deeper you look, the more you will find', and an old burnt picture of Milo and I.

[Milo's face is burnt out of the picture but Noah's is still visible]

Now, uh, I'd given Milo this picture as a file back in '06 before he shut his email account down, and um, I don't know how this fucker got ahold of it, but, but maybe he has some connection with Milo. I have no fucking idea.

[cut back to Noah's face]

Okay, um, I really don't know who the fuck this person is, but they're really fucking with me, and I don't appreciate being fucked with. So, if you could step the fuck off, that would be nice. I'm really stressed right now, and all this crazy shit is not helping. So, right now I am uh, gonna look through my Thanksgiving footage, and I'll post it after I mellow down some more. So... Noah, out.

[The secret frame is a distorted shot of Noah holding open the box to reveal the Rune of Severance]


  • The Slender Man appears during the video from the flash drive at about 3:43, behind the blinds. He can be difficult to see, but the tentacles are a bit more obvious.
  • The box with the Rune Of Severance is seen at the very last frame, only this time with the words "OBSERVING YOU".
  • If you join all the letters in bold of the first paper(the drawing), It will form the word "Milo".
  • The pills that Noah received could have been Milo's medication, or it might have been a trick for Noah to make him take it so it would kill him or make him woozy, so whoever sent them could lure him to the Slender Man.
