Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be housed in a secure storage locker within a 10"x12"x10" container fitted with a pressure-sensitive pad and GPS device. Container is to be bolted to a wall within a secure storage locker at a minimum of 20 50 meters distance from regular foot traffic. Level 2 security clearance or above is required for access. Level 3 security clearance or above is required for access. Level 2 access requires authorization and supervision by level 3 personnel. Supervising personnel must document all inputs and outputs.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a plain, white, leather-bound notebook, with a pen-pocket in the binding containing one plain black pen. Inscribed on the front in large block letters are the words "Instruction Manual." Inscribed on the back in fine-print is the phrase "Change Your Destiny." The notebook contains sixty-five blank white pages. 

When any writing apparatus is used to write inside the notebook, marks will fade and disappear completely within twenty-six seconds. When the pen provided in the pen-pocket is used to request instructions, detailed instructions form thirteen seconds after the last marking has disappeared. The request must be written out fully in the twenty-six seconds before the first word disappears for the instructions to manifest, but particular formatting is not required.

The instructions given by the notebook, when followed precisely, deliver the result as requested by the writer (hereafter referred to as 'subject'), and the instructions disappear immediately upon completion. If the instructions are not carried out precisely as written, abject failure resulting in injury or death usually result. If the subject does not carry out the instructions, the instructions disappear after 169 minutes. Upon either of these failure modes, the subject loses all memory related to the instructions, including any knowledge of the task from before contact with SCP-XXXX. This effect does not transfer to others who read the text.

Addendum XXXX-1: Knowledge of how to aquire SCP-XXXX, including methods of circumventing containment, seems to spontaneously form in the minds of nearby sapient beings. Investigation into how this occurs and how individuals are 'chosen' to come into possession of SCP-XXXX is ongoing. Due to this development, SCP-XXXX has been reclassified as "euclid." See incidents XXXX-D and XXXX-G.
