Addendum-XXXX-1: O5 & ethics committee regarding SCP-XXXX**

During a joint meeting between the ethics committee and O5 command SCP-XXXX was one of the topic discussed. Below is a transcript of the relevant part of that meeting.

2 august 1914

Today the germans sent an ultimatum to the belgian government, ordering us to allow them passage true our country.
The government hasn't responded yet, but I assume they will refuse and conflict will occur.

I am currently writing from a train, which is bringing us to a secret military base.

After I was drafted, I assume Albert told them about my experience with ghosts and phantoms, because they told me I and Sam were part of the paranormal division of the army.
I assumed it was a joke at first, but the serious look on their face and the fact they made sure no one else was around convinced me otherwise.
Together with a number of other people we were put on a train, apparently we were going to get a better explanation later.

On the train I met Walter, an Antwerpan who's family has been studying the paranormal for generations. He's a pretty funny guy, and Sam, I, Walter and some other guy who's name I forgot talked the whole day.
At one point a bunch of blinds closed over the windows, and we couldn't see the outside anymore.
A big guy with lots of medals on his uniform entered the cabin we were all in, and explained what I most already knew: every one was here because they know of, and have experience with, the paranormal.

He told us we were all going to a secret military base where we were going to get an explanation on what the belgian anomalous division does, and what our job was. He also gave us a badge for us to put on our uniform, Idk.

I will delete this later, and move it to DoOwlsExist2

2 august 1914

Today the germans sent an ultimatum to the belgian government, ordering us allow passage true our country.
The government hasn't responded yet, but I assume they will refuse and conflict will occur.

I am currently writing from a train, which is bringing us to a secret military base.

I'll go line by line:

-Item # and Object class arent bolded, but that's a minor thing.

`SCP-XXXX is incredibly dangerous‘`
This really isn’t necessary, as the fact that it's keter already implies that.

`and is to be contained in a 4 by 4 by 4 meter room.`
X by X by X rooms are a major cliche stemming from Series I, that a lot of people resent.
A general room of thumb for this kind of thing is "If the room is *5* by 4 by 4, will the creature escape and kill everyone? if no, that line really isnt needed.

(also you should spilt the contaimnet procedures into some paragraphs for better readability)

`SCP-XXXX is only to be involved in tests with the authorization of two (2) 05 Council Members`
O5s are really over-the-top here class-4 or even class-3 personell would work just fine here, O5 are usually reserved for extremely important matters.

`and staff should avoid SCP-XXXX’s containment as much as possible‘
I’m not sure if this is a typing error, and assuming this is meant 'SCP-XXXX containment cell' this is still pretty redundant.

`SCP-XXXX is referred to as “Dukkha” (death) by staff due to the words often written by SCP-XXXX‘
This shouldn’t be the first line of the description, but rather somewhere towards the bottom, as it is is additional info instead of a direct description.

`SCP-XXXX has an unknown appearance, weighs roughly 155 kilograms, and possesses [redacted] cognitive abilities ‘
this redaction isn’t really necessary, as it doesn't add much to the article. Just tell us what it can do.

(also here some paragraphs would be good)

`When MTF Epsilon-9 ("Fire Eaters") arrived, Epsilon-9 lost ███ men before succeeding in containing SCP-XXXX.‘
Why exactly did MTF-Epsilon-9 come to SCP-XXXX? They seem to appear out of nowhere here. What exactly alerted the foundation of SCP-XXXX’s existance?

Addendum-XXXX-A:
You should use the interview template here (http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-style-resource)

`Background: Interview with ███████████, henceforth to be known as POI-194389.`

Seeing as the name is redacted, we don't know that this is the Researcher who survived right away, which can cause confusion.

The Interview itself is pretty decent imo, though I would have him ramble on some more on just how terrible it was.

Addendum-XXXX-B:

This is a part I quite like, and I feel as thought there should be more focus on this part, an maybe also adding some more of the obstacle courses SCP-XXXX set up

Addendum-XXXX-C:

This goes against the earlier line that SCP-XXXX was created in a laboratory

Addendum-XXXX-D:

The Foundation doesn't really attempt to terminate SCPs, that is more of a GOC thing.
It would be cool to have this as a test rather and maybe to have SCP-XXXX set up an obstacle course right there. Seeing as SCP-XXXX enjoys suffering, why would he kill them? It's way more gruesome for it to torture it until they were exhausted.

Addendum-XXXX-E:

`and a new containment with a class 4 electromagnetic induction device and seismometers is being erected to contain SCP-XXXX more effectively.‘
Shouldn’t this be in the Special Containment Procedures?

The SCP-XXXX-1 seems completely irrelevant to the rest of the article, and it seems odd to introduce a new element so far into the document.

As for the contents of the article, It currently is just a dangerous shadow being that tortures people and is really strong, which is something that would probably get downvoted as there aren't really any really interesting aspects to it.

The SCP-682 vs. SCP-5875 log is also something a lot of people on the wiki won't like, as SCP-682 is very over-saturated, and many people are really tired of seeing it everywhere.
Currently it seems as though Addendum-5875-C is only there to show that SCP-5875 is as strong, or stronger than SCP-682, which can be shown in a different way that won't tire some people.

The tone of your article is pretty good, It stays consistent and feels like an actual SCP article.

I recommend you add a different element to the article to add more intrigue, fix some of the formatting, and read up on http://www.scp-wiki.net/what-not-to-do as you do something of those things.

@Kixiron#4911 i have some minor critisisms

-usually in a sandbox you’re supossed to use ‘SCP-XXXX’ as a placeholder for the final name, as giving it a number will confuse it with the actual SCP with that number, even i fit doesn’t exist yet.

-a very minor thing, but the Item # and Object class are usually bolded
(check http://www.scp-wiki.net/how-to-write-an-scp under the ‘Templates’ tab, theres also an interview template there)

-you dont have to always put “ three (3) “ whenever a number i mentioned, its usually only in the Containment Procedures or when the exact number is very important

-Avoid using black boxes to much, Instead of condtantly redacting the name of the guy who escaped SCP-5875, do something like:

“One researcher survived, ███████████, Classified as POI-25793257”
and then refer to the researcher as POI-25793257 from then on.

-I recommend you put the addenda in collabsibles, thought that is not required, I just personally prefer when it’s like that.

TEST-XXXX-04
Purpose: Clearly observing what happens when an anomaly disappears because of SCP-XXXX, as Incident-███-ED1 has no clear records.


Method: In 2016 Belgium and The Netherlands agreed to swap 16 hectares of land to make it follow the river Meuse,which had changed since to last border agreement. The border swap became official 1st of January 2018. SCP-XXXX researchers took advantage of this by building a room 130 meters below the area that was to be transferred from The Netherlands to Belgium. Anomalous Item #50304 was chosen, for the easy measurability of its anomalous effect.

Details: Anomalous Item was placed above a white as possible material. A very accurate color sensor detected

Classification plant specimen(s) Absorption (time for 1kg to be absorbed) Reappearance (time until) Reappearance (type of anomalous effects) Current owner Notes

Item #: SCP-3422

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: all possible SCP-3422s are kept in Site-XX
SCP-3422-A1,A2,A3,A5 and SCP-3422-B are kept in a standard large room, with 1,5 meter of soil at the bottom, and are to be given constant access to water. SCP-3422-F and SCP-3422-G are kept in standard medium rooms, made into (idk what words to use here)
They are all to be given access to artificial sunlight and fresh air at all times, and taken care of by Dr. XXXXXXX.
SCP-3422-H and SCP-3422-I are kept in standard small rooms.

All Possible SCP-3422s are to be checked on daily by staff D-class and new objects are to be taken from the area and examined.

SCP-3422-1 to (x) are kept in the storage room of the SCP-3422 area in seperate lockers.

SCP-3422-0 is to be monitored by 4 cameras at all times, and checked every two weeks by field agents for anomalous objects.

Experiments on possible SCP-3422s only with permission of a level 4 or Dr. XXXXXX or Dr. XXXXXX.

Description: SCP-3422 is a creature or object that generates anomalous objects in its surroundings, on average one per week. It is currently unknown which creature, object or combination thereof is SCP-3422.

The Search has been narrowed down to the following:

SCP-3422-A1,A2, A3 and A5: Quercus robur (common oak)
SCP-3422-B: (a tree, idk what one)
SCP-3422-F: a bird's nest and 4 birds that live in it
SCP-3422-G1: Sciurus vulgaris (European red squirrel)
SCP-3422-H: A wooden park bench
SCP-3422-I: A trash bin

SCP-3422 first came into the attention of The Foundation when webcrawlers found a post of someone selling anomalous objects on ████.com. The Foundation outbid all other interested, and thanks to cooperation with the owners of ████.com. Agents were able to get the address of the seller, and brought them to Site-XX

Interviewed: (J A)

Interviewer: Dr. XXXXXX

<Begin Log>

JA: What is this? Is it some kind of government agency that investigates supernatural stuff?

Dr. XXXX: As far as you should know, yes. I assume you know what we brought you here for?
JA: That box, the dress and the plastic bag I sold?
DR.XXXXX: Exactly. Where did you find them?

JA: In a park , in ██████, Belgium. Right next to the lake.

** Dr. XXXXX:** Could you point to the location of this area on a satellite map?

JA: Yes.

JA is given a satellite map of the region, and points to a spot south of a lake

Dr. XXXXX: Have other objects appeared in this area before?

JA: Im fairly sure, yes. But I'm not the only person interested in that area.

Dr. XXXXXX: Please elaborate.

JA: A bunch of crazy people and conspiracy theorists, they look around there sometimes.

Dr. XXXX: Have you ever interacted with any of them?

JA: Uhm… Look, I recommend you guys just don't bother with them, not worth it.

Dr. XXXXX: Are they dangerous?

JA: Well, no… I don't think so.

Dr. XXXXX: Are the objects you sold the only ones you have, or have interacted with?

JA: Yes.

Dr. XXXXX: Did you contact the authorities at any point?

JA: I have, they didn't believe me and hung up on me.

<End Log>

Closing Statement: After the interview, JA was administerd amnestics and brought back to their home.

Field agents were dispatched to the area, under the premise of an approaching storm, the park was closed and the agents started searching the area.
The following objects were found:

-A cardboard box, similar to the one sold by JA, with the same anomalous property
-A broken pen, when discovered, agents remarked being curious about astronomy.
-A damaged office chair, missing it's front legs, and pat of it's back.
-A xylophone, that when played, changed the hair color of Agent-IDK to blue

All of these objects were found in the same general area, now classified as SCP-3422-0.

The area was stripped of all plants and objects, who were categorized as the following:

SCP-3422-A1 to A5

Addendum: [Optional additional paragraphs]

A oak tree
B pine tree
C Ground soil
D pond water
E XM of iron fence painted dark green

Discovery: SCP-3422 came into interest of the foundation when webcrawlers discovered an individual selling anomalous items on ██████.com, Thanks to cooperation with ██████.com, agents were able to track down the seller.

After interviewing them (see addendum-3423-a), they revealed they had found the objects in a park in ███████, Belgium. Agents were dispatched.

The agents searched the area and found a number of anomalous objects (see addendum-3422-b) in the same general area. This area was stripped of plants and objects, and classified as SCP-3422-0.

The items found and classified, not yet mentioned are:

SCP-3422-C: 120 m² of soil and grass.
SCP-3422-D: 68 000 litres of water from the pond nearby.
SCP-3422-E: A dead tree of the species
SCP-3422-I: 23 m of dark green fence.
SCP-3422-J: A rock from the middle of the pond.

All items taken were replaced with replicas. Security cameras were installed to monitor the area, but no anomalous items have been found in over 3 months, making it safe to conclude SCP-3422 was removed from the area.

Addendums:
To avoid confusion with the many labeled objects, addendums are numbered with lowercase letters and experiments and incidents with roman numerals.
