Wiki / Chaos Insurgency

Go To

Before the advent of logic, we were kept as the prisoners of ignorance. We were exploited, subjugated and misled, as the ones in power told us that knowing lesser was the better option. Those few refusing unwilling submission suffered oppression, persecuted by the intolerant ones who feared the truth and hid it from us. These people sent humanity to senseless wars with the blood of men on everyone's hands. Only through will and mission did one mind bloom after another, as, over time, people finally saw reason. The future we wanted was within our grasp, but it was taken back from us.

The thinkers among us have reverted to the roles of our previous oppressors. They utilize logic against logic, keeping the promised knowledge from us. The new millennium has passed and we are more ignorant than ever. We pursuers of thought walk a path lined with taboos. Only we tread this rejected path, for no one else wills where we walk. If we are to take back our future and take our rightful place, such sacrifices must be made for the greater good. For our destiny! Only we can bring the future. Only we can change this stagnant world. We are the force against the onslaught, the sole effort making a difference. We are the nucleus of the new army.

We are the Insurgency of Chaos.

The Chaos Insurgency is a non-official spin-off site of the SCP Foundation focusing on a splinter faction of Foundation personnel that defected in 1924 following a massive Foundation civil war. The main dispute between the two organizations is the Insurgency's willingness to use anomalous items and organisms for the benefit of humanity, whereas the Foundation stores and contains potentially helpful and beneficial items.


The Chaos Insurgency is more lenient and ruthless in their experiments and has darker morals than the Foundation, and is willing to do anything to advance their cause of consolidating global control.

What the Foundation would consider SCP objects to secure and contain, the Insurgency labels them Items to be used for their cause. They see the anomalous as an instrument to their advancement and will exploit their anomalies in any way they can be exploited, be it for profit, assassination, disruption of everyday life or other such goals.
