Sanctuaries for Burning Men

Item #: XXXX

Class: Euclid

Revision 41 to Dai-Foundation Mission Statement

Throughout the Foundation’s countless years dealing with the profoundly odd occurrences of this Earth and others, it has happened upon many promising opportunities to expand its abilities, reach, and understanding- this is one such opportunity.
- Site Manager, Samuel J. Richter

Given the Foundation’s changing relationship with SCP-XXXX-1, an address to the Foundation's jurisdictions within SCP-XXXX zones is necessary. Both extremely promising and necessitated changes to Foundation conduct and operations have been approved by O5 Council and all standing SCP-XXXX Executives. The Foundation and the SCP-XXXX have continued to benefit greatly from our joint collaboration since the "Sanctuaries'" conception. The Foundation intends to maintain this cooperation to the best of its ability for the prosperity of us both.

May the flame burn.

Containment Procedures:
Surrounding each SCP-XXXX instance, provisional sites are maintained to house personnel and facilitate Foundation operations while concealing all such SCP-XXXX from the public eye. At least a five-kilometer (3.1 mile) buffer shall be kept between the outermost borders of SCP-XXXX and civilian populations. This buffer zone is to be regularly patrolled by on-site security personnel as to prevent the distribution of SCP-XXXX-1 instances beyond their designated sites. Civilians are to be turned away by security personnel upon entering the buffer. Unauthorized observation of SCP-XXXX instances and related phenomena is grounds for immediate arrest and application of class A amnestics. Civilians are to released to the closest, major population center via standard Foundation-run taxi.

Due to the inhospitable heat and atmospheric conditions within SCP-XXXX sites, "Mk. 6 Devil's Jacket" exploratory gear is provided as standard when entering any such SCP-XXXX. Gear includes level 3+ heat-resistant mesh, high-volume (200m2+) air tanks, sulfuric-gas and sulfuric acid resistant finish, and GPS trackers. Special cases for thaumaturgical environmental-protection may be taken up with supervising security officers. Attachable HUD headsets come standard with domestic-communications systems, real-time translation software1, tinted headlamps, and video cameras. Arm pieces contain temperature, suit pressure, and air-tank gauges.

Description:
Spearheaded by Samuel J. Richter in 1996, SCP-XXXX act as Foundation-protected as places of refuge for SCP-XXXX-1. In line with their role, these communities were dubbed "Sanctuaries". The project is highly praised for its success in sustaining dense SCP-XXXX-1 populations and the project's contributions to the Foundation.

SCP-XXXX are a series of 4 anomalous communities of SCP-XXXX-1, located in Northern Minnesota and North Dakota. As of January 30, 2018, they encompass 9k2, 5.2k2 , 2.4k2, and unknownk2; the populations of which are estimated to be 41,246 , 23,836 , 10,997, and unknown; correlating to SCP-XXXX-A, -B, -C, and -D respectively. Air temperatures range from 101°c (214°f) to 206°c (402°f). Atmosphere is high in sulfuric gas. Simulated seasonal changes and weather systems are present and undergone as per "Weather Man Protocol". Environmental conditions are kept stable within the sites solely through the use of advanced containment fields, referred to as "containment membranes"2, and are necessary for the continued survival of all such ecology associated with SCP-XXXX.

SCP-XXXX-1 is the collective designation given to the plethora of biological vessels inhabited by SCP-XXXX-1A and SCP-XXXX-1B. SCP-XXXX-1A are a race of sapient beings native to the planet Húltir of dimension [REDACTED]. All SCP-XXXX-1A are descendants of SCP-XXXX-1B; a diminutive subset of the far-reaching, extra-dimensional, and incorporeal race known as Cónsbonun, or Mind without Body. An estimated 6,000 years ago, SCP-XXXX-1B began using SCP-XXXX-1 as vessels to interact with the Solid-State Plane3

SCP-XXXX-1 is the collective designation given to a plethora of biological vessels. These vessels house the consciousnesses of SCP-XXXX-1A, a diminutive subset of a far-reaching race of extra-dimensional, incorporeal beings. These beings traditionally use SCP-XXXX-1 simply as a medium through which to interact with the physical world. As of late, SCP-XXXX-1 serve as a refuge for SCP-XXXX-1A from the persecution they suffer in the dimension they shift into while in their incorporeal forms. SCP-XXXX-1B are a race of independent SCP-XXXX-1 which, by the means of their developed cognitive function, are sovereign entities.

Important information on common SCP-XXXX-1 clades:

Personnel visiting SCP-XXXX sites with Level 2 clearance or higher are strongly encouraged to read the following material and to contact their supervisors for supplementary information as necessary. Due to the transient nature of race and the ubiquitous inconsistency to SCP-XXXX-1 physiology, racial distinctions are arbitrary. Despite these facts, social movements continue to shape the populous. As certain movements rise and fall, so do the popularity of associated forms. While each SCP-XXXX-1 is a unique construct, many tend to adhere to a general body plan- such as those described here. There is no shortage of social complexities and long history present SCP-XXXX-1 culture. Personnel are reminded of that. Just like humans, no two SCP-XXXX-1 are the same.

The names provided are recommended for in-field usage and for clarity of communications. Names heard in the field by personnel other than those provided are assumed to be derogatory until proven otherwise by researchers. Names are provided in both Mneudaispk and English when applicable.
