Captain Kirby's Sandbox

End Of Story Scenario Work

Logs recorded before 1900 were originally recovered from the German Anomalous Matters Examination Agency (GAMEA), who originally maintained the security and secrecy of SCP-XXXX.

Date of Event: December 16, 1873

Objects Recovered: Four men wearing wet english sailor apparel, 44.13 liters of sea water, and 14 crates of tea.

Responses: Medical examination of the men noted that their respiratory system had ceased functioning due to an inundation of water. When confronted about this, the men claimed to not have any trouble breathing. When questioned about events that took place before the Shatter Event, all men recalled being confronted by a "mermaid".

The men were detained in nearby GAMEA holding cells, and have yet to expire. The tea was stored at the same location for later analysis1

Date of Event: November 9, 1899

Objects Recovered: 14 heads of unidentified individuals, and three cakes.

Response: All but one of recovered heads would adequately answer questions in interviews due to mental trauma from having lost the rest of their bodies. The remaining head recalled a woman had taken the basket the heads had been stored in, and tossed them out of a window.

The heads are stored together in a single containment chamber. Analysis of the cakes showed no anomalous properties, thus the cakes were discarded.

Date of Event: January 6, 2018

Objects Recovered: Three individuals of Russian decent suffering from malnutrition, and 156 paper pamphlets splattered with blood.

Response: The individuals claimed to have been saved by an angel, and demanded to be returned to Russia, mentioning a need to exact revenge. Analysis of the pamphlets determined that they were anomalous copies of The Junius Pamphlet, by Vladimir Lenin. The individuals remain detained in standard humanoid containment cells. The pamphlets are stored at the same site, despite requests from the detainees that they be kept "as far away as possible."


Abandoned Skips

These are my works that I'm proud of, but don't really work on the site. So I'll just put them here. Hopefully I'll get back to them some day.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Webcrawler Upsilon-5 (“DLC”) will monitor Steam, Microsoft Store, Apple App Store, and any other digital distribution platforms for SCP-XXXX. Any manifestations of SCP-XXXX are to be removed immediately. Physical video game stores must also be monitored for instances of SCP-XXXX, and manifestations are to be treated in an analogous manner.

Civilians who have acquired copies of SCP-XXXX must be detained, and all evidence of SCP-XXXX confiscated. If they are playing SCP-XXXX upon discovery, they are to be commanded to continue playing SCP-XXXX, as Foundation personnel move the player and their console to a nearby Foundation Site.

MTF Lambda-5 (“White Rabbits”) is to regularly play SCP-XXXX, find all civilians playing SCP-XXXX, and evacuate them. If possible, Lambda-5 should collect personal information of all civilians evacuated to facilitate amnestic administration operations.

If a civilian is safely retrieved from SCP-XXXX, they should be amnestized and returned to society. If not, then their next of kin should be informed of their death using a suitable cover story.

Further attempts by MTF Mu-4 ("Debuggers") to interact with SCP-XXXX's servers are to be suspended indefinitely. Outside attempts to connect to SCP-XXXX's main servers are to be monitored, and stopped when possible.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the massively multiplayer online role-playing game “Open Horizon”, produced by Something About Online Games. First reports of SCP-XXXX manifesting in physical and online video game stores date back to 8/10/2017. Physical discs of the game work on most modern systems19.

When an individual plays SCP-XXXX, they lapse into a hallucinatory state where their senses are overridden with the sensory input from their in-game character20. Only extreme sensory inputs (such as pain and loud noises) from outside the game will be perceived during this state. Additionally, the in-game character will echo anything said by the player.

Players can still move their own bodies, but generally are disoriented, as movement in the real world does not translate to their character (which is still controlled via the game controller). There is no tutorial for the game, as the controls adapt to what the user believes to be the most intuitive way to control their character.

Players' senses remain altered until they exit the game. The game can only be exited when a player is at a “Save Point”, which are located throughout the game. Attempts to exit the game in other locations result in an error. Attempts to turn off consoles playing SCP-XXXX have failed. Removing the power source from the console does not stop gameplay either.

The following is known about gameplay within SCP-XXXX:

  • Upon starting the game, players all spawn at the same location, which is a town usually inhabited by 500-1000 players at any given time.
  • Players spawn with arbitrary starting equipment.
  • SCP-XXXX has the following options of note in its settings menu:
    • Pain - Set to "None" by the vast majority of interviewed players.
    • Resolution - Set to "Human Eye". The game prevents players from selecting any of the other options.
  • Outside of the original spawn location, the only large player population resides in a city called Smendal.

All attempts to locate an employee of Something About Online Games have failed. IP tracking indicates that the servers are located on a small island in Indonesia, however searches of the location have been fruitless. SCP-XXXX's servers cannot be accessed due to an ectoencrypted firewall.

Attempts to use AICs to interact with SCP-XXXX have failed. These attempts result in the message: “Reality Interaction Error: No CNS Detected".

Incident SCP-XXXX-A: On 09/14/2017, ███ players under Foundation care expired whilst playing SCP-XXXX. These individuals suffered from cerebral death, so the heart and other criticals systems continued operation due signals sent from the brainstem. Six hours after the beginning of the incident, a D-Class was secured, and the environment for an experiment was set up.

Autopsy did elucidate the cause of D-5540's cessation of cerebral function. By the end of the autopsy all of D-5540's organs had become inert.

The cause of SCP-XXXX-1 and the resulting change in behavior of SCP-XXXX is unknown.

MTF Lambda-5 Exploration: One day after incident SCP-XXXX-A, MTF Lambda-5 ("White Rabbits") was briefed on SCP-XXXX, and entered the game. Below is the record of their exploration.

Addendum SCP-XXXX-B: Below are the game materials collected by Lambda-5 during their exploration of SCP-XXXX.

Addendum SCP-XXXX-C: Three days following Lambda-5's exploration of SCP-XXXX, Captain Hart was approached by an individual identifying as Jeremy (PoI-XXXX). Due to the unforeseen nature of the encounter, Hart was not able to conduct a proper interview. However, she did record the conversation:

Below is a transcript of the business card Hart received:

Jeremy, CEO and Founder of Something About Online Games, Champion of Zygothra, Defender of Herculoid, Xanax the Conquerer, and Universal Game Dev.

Interdimensional Phone: Burn two octopods, throw three origami cranes in acid, then dial 52.06-LK4-L@55
Email: lri.semagenilnotuobagnihtemos|namj#lri.semagenilnotuobagnihtemos|namj

Over the course of the two days following the interview, the majority of brain dead players in Foundation custody regained cerebral activity, the others having been either autopsied or disposed of after the morgues had been filled at certain sites. Recovery of PoI-XXXX is now considered a Level Five Priority.

Super Secret Plans

SCP-001: A Haven. It is the last normal place on earth. And the Foundation can never go there, or interfere, or else it will no longer be normal. Foundation has only able to observe it through outside communications.

It's just a normal island. It's uninhabited, but scientists go there on occasion to observe the local wildlife and fauna. Foundation realized that there was just… nothing there. Nothing strange was ever described, nothing has ever been observed there. Hell, it doesn't even get satellite signals, so you can't even figure out that the world has gone to shit. For some reason there's just… nothing there. It's the last haven. And they refuse to touch it.

Possible names:

  • Haven
  • A Normal Place
  • Restraint
  • Mission Accomplished
  • Perfectly Contained
  • No Action Required
  • A Boring Place
  • Sacrifice
  • The Meaning Of Containment
  • Ideal

Item #: SCP-001

Special Containment Procedures: No direct containment of SCP-001 is to be attempted. Observation is to take place solely through satellite imagining. All civilian reports of SCP-001 are to be compiled in Foundation archives, but not removed from the public. Foundation personnel are prohibited from traveling to SCP-001, as this could disrupt normalcy.

To discourage personnel from attempting travel to SCP-001 while maintaining morale, Foundation Sites are to disseminate Cover Story 001-C6 to all employees, preferably alongside a contract update and a slight pay raise:

Dear [NAME],

As you may have noted, part of your contract precludes you from ever visiting a Tetepare Island of the Solomon Islands. This is due to a number of factors, but the primary factor is a containment concern.

Tetepare Island is occupied by an anomaly under precarious containment by the Foundation. While we have managed to limit its effects, this has resulted in the anomaly only affecting those with knowledge of the Foundation. Any further details regarding this anomaly are classified per orders of the O5 Counsel.

While you are contractually prohibited from traveling to Tetepare Island, let it also be known that persons who may have interacted with this anomaly will be terminated to prevent a large scale containment breach.

Congratulations on [INSERT ACHIEVEMENT].

The Administrator

Description: SCP-001 is Tetepare Island of the Solomon Islands. It is conjectured to be the last perfectly normal place on Earth. SCP-001 is devoid of anomalies, as well as individuals, media, information, or miscellaneous objects related to the anomalous. While no experimentation has taken place, it is believed that anomalous phenomena do not occur on SCP-001 as well.

All information regarding SCP-001 has been gathered from civilian accounts and satellite imagery, as neither Foundation personnel, nor GoI members have travelled to SCP-001. As of this writing, no information has implied the existence of anomalous activity at SCP-001.

There have been a number of instances where anomalous entities have arrived at SCP-001, however none have required Foundation action. Below is the current list of averted normalcy disruptions:

Anomalous Entity Initial Situation Contingency Plan Result
Are We Cool Yet? Anartist Geraldo Lupez declared that he would use a large portion of SCP-001 for an anart project involving tropical landscapes. Foundation agents are to infiltrate Lupez's private charter flight, and redirect it to a Foundation site where Lupez can be apprehended. Lupez was arrested at the Dullas International Airport for possession of illegal drugs. Charter flight was subsequently cancelled.
Dr. Wondertainment The corporation announced plans to expand its manufacturing capabilities, building a number new factories. SCP-001 was listed among possible locations for this expansion. A disinformation campaign would spread misinformation about SCP-001's environment, portraying it as an inadequate location for construction. Foundation personnel would infiltrate any subcontractors involved to sabotage the project. Due to an unexpected poor quarterly performance, Dr. Wondertainment cancelled expansion plans.
Marshall, Carter and Dark A meeting between Marshall, Carter and Dark executives and high profile clients was scheduled to take place at SCP-001 to avoid possible government inteference. Use information gathered about the clients to blackmail them into changing the meeting location. Marshall Carter and Dark changed the meeting location of their own accord for unknown reasons.
Church Of The Broken God Embedded agents in the Church Of The Broken God reported that members of the anomalous planned to travel to SCP-001 to recover a religious relic described in their holy text. Foundation Naval Units would be deployed around SCP-001 to prevent landfall. After further analysis of the text, it was decided that the relic resided on a neighboring island. Members of the GoI never ventured to SCP-001.

Addendum SCP-001-2: Tetepare Island was designated SCP-001 after a 9-4 vote of the O5 counsel. Afterwards, O5-13 released this statement:

After much debate and discussion, the O5 counsel has decided to designate Tetepare Island as SCP-001, despite its non-anomalous nature. This has occurred for two main reasons.

Firstly, documentation of containment procedures was deemed necessary to maintain normalcy at SCP-001.

Secondly, documentation of the true anomaly was deemed necessary, but unwieldy. The containment procedures are focussed around Tetepare Island, not the anomaly at hand.

However, it is most important that we acknowledge that SCP-001 is not anomalous. It is currently the only safe haven we know exists. The rest of the world is the anomaly. The rest of the world is what constantly teeters on the edge of "Baseline". The rest of the world is what needs containing.

Some may argue that Tetepare Island has anomalously avoided or repelled anomalous influence, and therefore our procedures are unnecessary and our description inaccurate, which invites further debate and experimentation. This option has been discussed, but rejected. If not being anomalous is considered an anomaly in and of itself, then what is the Foundation trying to achieve? It is a self-defeating definition.

We shall continue our work, and maintain normalcy. As of now, Tetepare Island has displayed no anomalous properties. We cannot risk interfering, and possibly destroying what we strive to achieve.

Even if we must give up our own normal days.

Secure. Contain. Protect.
