Photograph of SCP-XXXX

First Edit(s): Fixed grammar and description.


Object Class: Safe

Special containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in an isolated containment locker. No materials or living entities are to be brought within 1 m of SCP-XXXX. Any tests involving SCP-XXXX must be performed in an environment where no non-test related objects are within a horizontal area of 20 m of SCP-XXXX. Update: As of 08/29/20██ SCP-XXXX now requires a documented and exact procedure for usage which must then approved by at least two (2) Level Two or higher personnel (See Addendum A-2).

Description: SCP-XXXX is a gold coin measuring 8 cm in diameter with its origins traced to ancient [REDACTED]. One side of the coin is decorated with the image of a sheep, the other side features a small rectangular hole, with several elevations inside said hole. Upon inspection of SCP-XXXX from a short distance it exhibits no extraordinary qualities. Any entity viewing SCP-XXXX while being within one meter of the artifact while it is not in possession of another individual will find themselves with a strong urge to take and keep the artifact on their person (whether this is a natural response or a result of SCP-XXXX is still being researched). While in the possession of an individual SCP-XXXX will activate. During the active state any entities within a 20 m2 area surrounding the carrier (from hereon to be referred to as SCP-XXXX-1) appear to have a drastically increased probability of potentially lethal events which can only be explained by inexplicable coincidence. SCP-XXXX-1 does not appear to be subject to SCP-XXXX's effects. Further testing has revealed that prolonged exposure will result in SCP-XXXX-1 being the primary focus of SCP-XXXX's effects. (See Addendum A-1)

Addendum A-1: During testing of SCP-XXXX it has been revealed that extended use of SCP-XXXX lasting longer than twenty-four hours will result in a reversal effect. During this period any events that may have occurred in the area surrounding SCP-XXXX-1 are instead directly focused toward SCP-XXXX-1 with the intention of killing SCP-XXXX-1. Further study for the cause of this is as of 11/06/20██ is ongoing.

Addendum A-2: In light of recent events (see Incident Report XXXX-B) security for the use, and testing of SCP-XXXX has been increased.
