Just a minor thing, and i may just be ignorant, but why does the part about gold nuggets and molting require level 3 clearance? Why not just an addendum?
Also your page still says access denied instead of the title on the mainlist at time of writing.
I haven't add a nickname for the SCP on the mainlist yet. I will get to that when I pass the "12-hour test".1
EDIT: Okay, you got a point and I've altered the last addendum as a result.
I like this. It's a unique and creative way to look at the myths of golden cities (which were, conveniently, always "Just over that other hill… Far away from our tribe over by those jerks we don't like!"). A nice, solid SCP that keeps to itself and simply does what it does. +1
Eh. Competently written from a technical standpoint, but my eyes glazed over while reading it and it failed to keep my interest. -1
I see… Which aspect of the article ultimately sent your interest crashing down?
Well it's more a personal preference, but I'm not a fan of science-y SCPs, as I have a hard time understanding STEM stuff.
SCP-2955 refers to a collection of granular particles,1 capable of autonomous movement. Individual instances of SCP-2955 have a measured diameter of 15 mm on average. Samples taken indicate that SCP-2955 is composed of a mixture of tumbaga2 and silica.
This sort of put me to sleep.
Again, this is a personal preference and I'm not suggesting you change it, but this kind of Scip just isn't for me.
Ironically, the context of said SCP is out of mythology and folklore. Prefacing it with a scientific outlook would be, in my opinion, how the Foundation would perceive it and treat the subject-matter as such.
The Foundation is technically a scientific organisation, after all.
Interesting concept, good follow-through. Not amazing, but it's okay. No-vote.
Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury you!
I've written a tale upvoted by Djoric, Bright, Echo, Yoric, Moose, VAE and Voct, fite me irl if you don't respect
I really enjoyed this one. I find it interesting that many of the larger SCPs tend to cluster in South America. Guess they're the Texas of Anomalies?
One question: Is the mainlist title supposed to be "Every Wandering City" or "Ever Wandering City?"
Either way, +1 for the lost city(ies) of gold!
Edit: I meant the larger (as in size, not density) items tend to be on or near the southern continent (SCP-455, 169, 1986). Maybe it's just the order I read them in, but I see a subjective trend towards massive sites.
Hmm… if we look at the SCP map, I would argue that most anomalies tend to cluster along the US East Coast instead.
And yes, it is "Every Wandering…". It offers the implication that every city of gold known in South American legends refer to the same thing. I won't call it "Ever Wandering…" since it only started wandering when Conquistadors tore down other members of its kind for spare gold.
