A Sack of Potatoes




A good question to consider is "if I took the violence/sexual abuse away, would there be ANYTHING interesting left?" It's by no means universal, but sometimes it helps prod ideas

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Classification Pending

Special Containment Procedures: Following Expedition XXXX-█-1 (See Addendum B), under no circumstances are O5 members permitted within 50 kilometers of ███████ Island. Disclosure of information on SCP-XXXX is permitted only to level 4 personnel. Accessing SCP-XXXX requires the approval of Dr. Elisa. The island that SCP-XXXX resides on is to be made to be a nature reserve, patrolled by MTF-Papa-94 ("The Curators"), and off-limits to civilians. SCP-XXXX-1 is to be kept on Dr. Elisa's person, SCP-XXXX-2 is to be kept to the main researcher working under Dr. Elisa, should SCP-XXXX-2 find it's way into the hands of any O5 member it is to be confiscated immediately.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a structure composed of industrial grade concrete measuring 5m X 6m X 3m, located on ███████ Island off the Antarctic continent. A single locking mechanism with a hexagonal depression fitting SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2 is located on a solid steel door.

The exterior of the building and the surrounding area demonstrate no anomalous properties; however, the interior of the structure is estimated to span more than 60m on the first level alone.

The interior of SCP-XXXX is composed of several levels. The composition of the floors consists of 10m2 waxed patterns of several species of expensive and exotic woods. No two patterns have been recognized as exactly the same, though all patterns are Icovellavna with the exception of the main landing of each level, which is filled with a compass rose of the same woods. The walls and ceilings of each level are consistent in composition and design with the floors.

Each explored level of SCP-XXXX contains up to three collections of doors dedicated to titled exhibitions styled after a museum. Each door features a title of its own, and an engraved symbol:

  • Circumpunct
  • Fragmented Circle
  • Quarter Crossed Circle

Doors in exhibits have been observed connecting to a freestanding doorframe in a separate physical location and time. Multiple expeditions have been conducted to explore the other side of these doors. (see Addendum SCP-XXXX-B).

SCP-XXXX first came to the attention of the Foundation via an envelope found on Site-██, addressed to O5-██ by personal name and their O5 digit. The envelope was screened for potentially hazardous materials, and found to be made of an unknown synthetic polymer; the contents were scanned and sent to Dr. Elisa (see Addendum SCP-XXXX-A). The envelope contained two electronic brass keys of an indiscernible make; the keys contain synthetic diamonds that held a consistent charge of two volts. Following attempts to breach the structure by force, it became clear that these keys were the only known items that could grant access to SCP-XXXX. These keys have been labeled SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2 respectively.
