Trivia / Tribe Twelve

  • Acting for Two: Adam Rosner, the creator of the series, and actor for Noah Maxwell, plays Milo Asher/ Mr. Scars in Milo's Tape, due to Milo's original actor leaving very early in the series.
  • Ad Lib: Almost the entirety of Severance was a huge improvised scene between Noah Maxwell and HABIT. Which is pretty awesome given what happened and what was explained during the video.
  • California Doubling: With the exception of the areas where Noah first teleports into HABITís realm and where he confronts both him and Jeff on the bridge, most of Bridge to Nowhere was shot at where the creator was living on campus at the University of Miami, Florida, despite the realm being located near Rutgers University, New Jersey.
  • Horror Comedy: Although the series as a whole is horror dominant, there's many comedic moments used to give viewers a breather and/or to break the tension of the series. Notable examples include Firebrand flipping of Slender Man in DEUS EX MACHINA (and Noah subsequently calling him "Daddy-Long Legs" in Obituary), Noah awkwardly stabbing some bushes in Night Recording, and pretty much anything Future Noah says or does.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: Noah Maxwell is an extremely vulgar person who slowly loses his mind over the course of the series, and interacts with fans less and less as he does so. His actor, Adam Rosner (and the creator of the series) is an introverted, but kind young man who loves his cat, fans of the series, and memes.
    • The Observer is shown to be The Dragon, who is utterly psychopathic in his speech and mannerisms, and looks visibly terrifying in Collective videos. In real life however, Rikki Dorian Audax is a pretty chill guy, who appears to love EDM, anime, and other forms of art, while embracing his role when given the chance.
    • Inverted with Milo's actor Kyle Malo, who criticized the series often, and ultimately severed ties with the creator for a very petty reason.
  • Old Shame: The creator has stated that he considers the early "Milo" entries to be this.
  • Red Skies Crossover: During his childhood, Milo Asher and his mother frequently came into contact with the Order, the secondary antagonists of Dark Harvest. That being said, Milo ends up committing suicide long before Chris and Alex created their YouTube channel, and Noah's brief stint with them only lasted one episode. Word of God confirms that any lore that Milo's journal reveals about the Order lines up with both Dark Harvest and this series.
  • Special Effects Failure: Has had quite a few of these in certain episodes.
    • An audible version of this trope occurs in The Order. It's pretty easy to hear that the "Observer's" laughter that plays as Noah is running from the aforementioned Order is clearly a woman laughing, especially once Pitfall was released.
    • The Live Stream Incident. Averted with the video mind you, but the livestream itself had a lot of errors. It was only recorded for 30 seconds, and while INTERCEPTION was broadcasted, only the audio from the video was present.
    • DEATHTRAPEXODUS has a scene where a nervous Kevin Haas is shown looking around a forest while Firebrand tells Noah he must kill Kevin in order to save him from the Observer's grasp. Due to a rendering error however, the text that says this is incredibly hard to see, leaving it frequently overlooked for first viewers.
    • During Crawlspace, Slender Man is shown to have white pants with a black jacket, due to the camera's infrared vision seeing the the jacket and pants as two different materials. Word of God states that he discovered the error too late in production and didn't have time to fix it, so he just kept it as is.
  • The Other Darrin: Mary Asher's character is actually portrayed by three different people all at once. Her voice comes from Marissa of the Tulpa Effect webseries, her body appearance in Milo's Tape is that of the creator's mother, and her picture in the Obituary newspaper is actually a mugshot of the late Mindy Mc Cready.
  • The Wiki Rule: Located here.
  • Throw It In!: During Noah's interrupted Livestream, he calls himself "Adam" (the actor's real name, Adam Rosner); when people in the stream notice, he explains that he's been calling the cops about disturbances so much he's had to start using fake names to get them to respond. Also, according to Word of God in the Media Meltdown video, the knocking itself is unscripted: a friend who lived nearby was watching the livestream and decided to play a practical joke.
    • Apparently Rikki Audax just decided that he wanted to smoke during the filming of DEATHTRAPEXODUS, which was kept in the video.
  • Troubled Production: As explained on Adam Rosner's Tumblr page here, we're not likely to see anything more than pre-recorded appearances of Milo anymore, thanks to a combination of his actor (Kyle Malo) being in retrospect a poor actor, always criticizing the series rather unfairly and then ultimately just severed ties with Adam over what amounts to nothing, far as we can tell.
  • What Could Have Been: Bridge to Nowhere was originally going to be a very short video, with Noah simply finding the bridge he encounters HABIT on the moment he teleports from the bathroom into the old building. The creator was ultimately unsatisfied with this however, and decided to add in the scenes where Firebrand texts Noah and where Noah explores the areas within HABITís spirit world.
    • There were originally going to be scenes filmed that expanded upon Miloís early life, but unfortunately couldnít happen due to Kyle Malo leaving the project and refusing to return. Instead, these scenes were touched upon in Milo's journal.
    • Future Noah was originally going to host his 2017 Veteran's Day livestream at the Boardwalk, but instead does it in the laundry room in his house. Word of God says this was due to the lighting at the Boardwalk being unfavorable for "the dark times" during the day, and that the bugs would make it impossible to film at night.
    • An entire video arc that the creator made up during his college years ended up getting shelved due to the arc being mostly filler content.
  • Word of God: Lots of this in these interviews Media Meltdown Interview and (See descriptions for why the other interview is unavailable for now).
    • The 11/11/12 livestream was supposed to play the INTERCEPTION video at 11:15PM, but due to technical difficulties that didn't happen. The video was then supposed to play when Noah was off-camera, but due to an error on the Livestream's side only the audio of the video played. Word of God has declared he'll use a different Livestream host from now on).
