A bit of self-critique; it could probably be a bit more formal. Anyways, while not my first attempt at writing up a draft, it is the first attempt I feel comfortable moving forward with. How is it?
There are a lot of written, compulsory, info-hazard, and cognition (or some mix of those) SCP's already like SCP-1098. Making this stand out is going to be hard.
I suck at grammar BTW so just because I didn't mention anything doesn't mean nothing's there.
Thank you for the response. Ironically, I had never read 1098, and I took notice of the similarity. There are two paths I could take, from what I can see: 1) Probably the better option, but I could scrap this draft altogether and create a new idea, or 2) Perhaps tie-in 1098 (if no one minds) to this Skip. Perhaps use one to cancel the other out? I dunno.
-I've removed the measurement and replaced it with the word 'standard' (because that's not an overused word at all).
-Shortened it to 'any known written language'
-Took the paragraphs that describe the progression of the skip and made them a bullet-list of Phases.
-Attempted to add in a transitional phase.
-Added an addendum with a 'roughly translated' document, attempting to provide a reason to the cult-like behavior. Not quite satisfied with it yet, so calling it a W.I.P.
