By the power of geek!
So if the chowderclef page is canon, and Dr. Clef's things were infected with the fanfic virus, does that mean they never killed/coma'd all thise reality warpers?
Look at me still talking when there's science to do

What's the point of being grown up if you can't act childish?
couldn't give you a number, but this may be a good place to start
Some subset of those, yes. "Safe" is what they classify anything easy to contain and control, even if it's an orbiting kill sat from another dimension with a "keter" setting...
Safe defines items with known properties, which can be handled in a controlled fashion. They can be as dangerous as a Keter object if the proper procedures are not followed, but they both too well known to be Euclid and too unlikely to actively harm living things/humans/the universe to be Keter.

Just discovered SCP #579. It's an SCP with it's entire description left out. Holy shit.
Discover the rest as the game progresses.
That one is not well liked, mostly because its all "This thing is really bad. We won't tell you what it is. But it's bad. Oh, also, one of the first SCPs created on the site, and one of the most interesting, must be destroyed immediately. No, we can't tell you why."

Recall that SCP #004 leads to several alternate dimensions depending on what key is used. One of the keys leads to a dimension where there lives an Eldritch Abomination so large that its body extends beyond the horizon.

Given that one of the actions to be taken if things get out of hand is destroying SCP #004, I'd say the item has something to do with said Eldritch Abomination.

I wish I had paid more attention to SCP foundation when I first found it. The archive binge would be a little less painful xD The thing that intrigued me the most was the card game that is being made! I would CERTAINLY get that!
Trying to be better than I was before

Wait, I thought Chowderclef was now debatable canon after everyone wanted their Mary Sue back?

The entire SCP archive is a Multiple-Choice Past.If you are wondering which interpretation is right, none of them are. If you wonder what articles are a lie, all of them are.

An SCP foundation point and click adventure game would be awesome. It would be like you are a new guy in the facility and you explore the place and interact with the personel and the SC Ps (a lot leading to gratuitious death sequence], and perhaps SCP-683 escapes and you gotta track it down or smomething. Thing is, it has potential to be a neat game.

I was imagining it more in the artsyle of Monkey Island than in Live action. With the human characters looking somewhat cartoony but most SCP looking more realistic to emphasize their otherness and alien nature. Too bad I don't know how to program a game.

One of the NPC's must be the guy who was permanently set on fire by the octopus doll SCP. He's not important or anything, he's just... on fire. All the time.

Bumping this thread.

Apparently SCP-682 does not like "Imagine".

Anyone who doesn't look dangerous is dangerous and sneaky.

So, funny story. I was walking home from the grocery store, glanced off to my right, and happened to see SCP-596 in someone's front yard. I'm not kidding. There was no fucking mistaking it!

Needless to say, I booked it the rest of the way home.
I was going to join the foundation, but I never got around to it. Here's an entry I was writing, if you want.


Classification: Safe

Security Containment Procedure: SCP-____ is to be kept in a small cell room and seated on a 4-legged steel chair bolted to the floor. The suit's wrists are to be bound to the chair arms with steel bands, and the box is to be situated a meter away. SCP-___-2's heart-rate is to be observed through a remote monitor; any signs of an increase are to be met immediately with a ____ decibel shock. A microphone unit is installed within the helmet to record anything SCP-____-2 chooses to say.

All testing is to take place in SCP-____'s cell. Chemical testing on SCP-____'s contents may only be allowed if previously tested in a similar manner on Class-D personal and found non-lethal. Any interviews with SCP-___-2 are perfectly acceptable, provided that the interviewer does not mention the National Aeronautics and Space Association, rockets, [DATA EXPUNGED], or Mars.

Description: SCP-____ is a 6 foot tall pressurized, atmospheric suit. The item is composed of plates of various steel alloys, with the limbs covered in sheathes of a rubber-like polymer. A plexiglass bubble serves as the visor of the helmet unit, and contains a flight helmet and breath mask of the type generally used in 1956. Two rubber hoses connect respectively to the chest and back of the SCP-___. Closer examination of the synthetic parts of the suit reveal chips of meteorite of Martian origin. Sounds of mechanical activity can be clearly heard from within SCP-___, but the suit's leadlined interior prevented X-ray examination. The rubber hoses connect the suit to a 3 meter tall steel box. The item sits in a wooden chasis that rests upon 4 small stilts, and is considered part of SCP-___. The box is leadlined as well. Different materials circulate through the piping; the hose on the front of the suit passes oxygen and other respiratory gasses to the breathmask, while the rear hose transports liquid rich in nutrients, presumably to the digestive system of suit's occupant. Temperatures within the suit may vary between -12 degrees C and -9 degrees C.

SCP-___ houses the man SCP-___-2. SCP-___-2 is a 5'6" young old caucasian male of poor physical and mental condition. His physical features after the augmenting process are difficult to discern, as he will die if extracted for examination, and the helmet obscures many of them. SCP-___-2 legs are broken because of [DATA EXPUNGED], and he is therefore confined to a sitting position. SCP-___-2's bones and muscles have atrophied, and samples taken of his blood reveal signs of radiation poisoning and traces of antifreeze. The person shows limited signs of upper body movement, and often remains still unless spoken too. The man's heartrate is abnormally slow (30 beats per minute) and only raises by 10 beats per minute when he becomes aggressive. SCP-___'s voice is often noted to be raspy and low by people talking to him, and he speaks in a broken mix of Russian, English, and [DATA EXPUNGED]. Unusually, SCP-____-2 appears not to have aged at all, despite it being 55 years since he first entered SCP-____. Further research on this quality is pending.

Interview with SCP-___-2

Interviewer: Hello, ____-2. We, the foundation, would like to learn more about your former life before entering your suit.
SCP-____-2: привет.
Interviewer: Please, we know you can speak more English than that. Do not waste our time.
[SCP-___-2 remains silent at this]
Interviewer: We really just want to help you, ___-2.
SCP-___-2: раненый. Hurts. Water. Please.
Interviewer: We're sorry, ___-2, but-
[SCP-___-2 interrupts her]
SCP-___-2: It hurts! Crippled! Murder! ловушка!
Interviewer: Slow down, ___-2. We cannot administer a solution without knowing your problems. Firstů What was your job before entering service?
SCP-___-2: I teach. I teach and children watch.
Interviewer: Interesting. Could you tell us more about your employers?
SCP-___-2: I before speak good English and Russian. Now feel worse. Dying. Ill.
Interviewer: Yes, yes, and your employers?
SCP-___-2: They speak good lie. He tell me about money. Not about this.
Interviewer: And your first flight, what happened there?
[SCP-___-2's hearbeat raises 8 beats. Electroshock is applied.]
SCP-___-2: Why can't I die? It's because of him! It's because of the Red Planet! It's about [DATA EXPUNGED]!
[Interviewer leaves ]

....Is that a Doctor Who character. If so, you have good taste.
No, actually. It's based on a newspaper clipping picture that was suggested in the SCP chatroom. The picture is of a the described SCP, with the caption "Not a man from mars, but a man able to go to mars, according to the u.s. navy, who have developed this rubber pressure suit for pilots of supersonic, high-altitutde research aircraft such as the Douglas Skyrocket." It was obviously fake, but the picture is scary, and I got the idea that maybe the suit was a sort of hibernation device that malfunctioned on the trip there. Unfortunately, for some odd reason, the picture is resisting my attempts to convert it into a TV Tropes picture, and I can't find the photo online.

Here's another.


Classification: Euclid

Containment Procedure: A three meter tall electrified fence surrounds the perimeter of SCP-909, including gates for the nine entrances. The border fence is connected to one primary generator and eight redundant auxiliaries. Caution signs are posted at alternating 4 and 5 meter intervals around the fence, warning of potential consequences for civilian disobedience.

Any unauthorized humanoids entering and leaving SCP-909 are to be shot on-site, no exceptions. An armed guard is to be permanently stationed in a safehouse built by each entrance leading into SCP-909. The guards have to keep a nocturnal schedule from 17:00 hours to 8:00 hours, allowing for an appropriate period of sleep. Training for guard duty of SCP-909 involves psychological testing for excessive curiosity and queasiness, and also includes a mandatory surgical procedure that inserts remote explosives into the inner ear. Symptoms of epilepsy are automatic disqualifications for guard duty. The guards must keep constant radio contact when awake, and any reports of abnormal conversation or behavior in one of the men will be responded to with the detonation of that guard's implants. Any experiments involving the insertion of personal into the cornfield must be supervised by radio contact constantly and be authorized prior to testing. The SCP-909 region is a no-fly-over zone, and any pilot caught breaking this rule will be reported and detained for further questioning and punishment.

Description: SCP-909 is a cornfield of approximately 2224 acres in size, located near [REDACTED], Iowa. The corn plants do not die or visibly grow, and their height ranges between 1.5 meters to 2 meters tall. Experiments reveal that uprooted and destroyed stalks reappear as though unharmed in the exact same position they occupied previously. The replacement seems to only happen if the examples are not being observed visually. There are nine different trails leading into the cornfield, located at seemingly random points; the trails end in dead ends. Attempts to measure the distance and paths of the trails have failed, as they change randomly every day after the event. Hoofed animals seem to have a fear of SCP-909; in one notable case, a horse bucked off its own rider when ordered to proceed. The field has no recorded legal history, and no locals have laid claim to the land. Unusually, there were originally no reports of SCP-909 before September 9, 1999; many of the men and women interviewed even denied there being a cornfield there in the first place.

However, SCP-909 is mainly notable for its effects over a certain time period. Every night, at exactly 21:00 hours, a strange process occurs. All video and audio footage of the cornfield becomes extremely distorted, with flashing lights, changing gradients, high-pitched noises, and quick flashes to surreal images. Those looking at or listening to recordings often experience nausea and drowsiness. Outside visual observation confirms strange lights appearing and disappearing in the sky and among the corn stalks. People watching the events often feel a strange sense of curiosity to enter SCP-909, even if they know better. All human subjects within the field itself begin reporting hallucinations and visions of [DATA EXPUNGED] before eventually ceasing contact altogether. Although contact is sometimes reestablished, the only sounds heard after a successful reconnection are weeping and distorted electronic noises similar to a high-pitched humming. These unusual occurrences continue for the next nine hours.

After the incident, all people who were within the field during the event can be found unconscious and mutilated; more information on their typical medical conditions can be found in Medical Report D-909-A.

Medical Report D-909-A

Subject D-909-A is a young African-American male with above average intelligence and poor physical condition; prior to being assigned to SCP-909, the man participated in a University shooting, and was integrated into D-class personal instead of being put on death row. The subject is cationic, but has been constrained by steel bonds in case of reawakening or [DATA EXPUNGED]. However, Subject D-909-A has yet to react to any sort of stimuli, including electrical shocks. The subject's body temperature is only 35 degrees celsius, and his breathing and heartrate have also decreased. Subject D-909-A is covered in a variety of lacerations over his arms, face, and chest. All wounds are stitched shut with a reflective metal wire of unknown make and origin; attempts to cut the material with conventional tools have been unsuccessful. Authorization to use more advanced tools for testing on the wire has been approved, and will commence shortly after this report is written. The subject's eyes have been gouged out, although the eyelids are stitched shut with the same metal. Around his wrist is a small wire band with a labeled plastic tag on it; the only discernible symbol on the label is a single number 9. Scans of the language are being sent to Cipher Team for translation. X-ray analysis of Subject D-909-A reveals the replacement of several vital organs, including the brain, with [DATA EXPUNGED]. Vivisection of the test subject was denied approval by higher ups due to the high possibility of foreign objects causing a containment breach. Subject is to be terminated immediately by means of lethal injection. The cadaver will be cremated along with any internal contamination.
