Hmm. This admittedly does seem like SCP-1845 (Animal Kingdom) but with only lemurs. And I guess sort of SCP-1732 (Septimius Leo), in that there's an animal occupying a high rank in a kingdom.

the SCP possesses cognitohazardous effects that cause those affected to have a general distaste for the night and white ruffed lemurs, as well as spend more time in direct sunlight

This seems kind of unnecessary.

Hmm. If you really want to pursue this, maybe think up some further worldbuilding? You'd need something unique to be able to match the development of the aforementioned articles.

What happens if a lap is completed on the track without being tackled?

This gave me a good idea, maybe the only way to stop the track from churning out pursuers is to complete a lap without being overtaken. Then if you don't you simply have to evade them from that point on.

Also I dont know if the Foundation could create a track with these properties. I would rather write it as a running track which isn't really near to anything and was only discovered by a group of high school students who decided to run on it. And maybe the things only come out when someone runs on it because the track is somewhat sapient and can sense people on it and maybe wants to "test" them or compete with them.

Execution is key here, and right now I have a bunch of jumbled ideas in my head about this, but thanks for the response man.

When it was still intact it changed the sea level on Earth according to how fill the jug was with water.

How would the Foundation figure this out if the jug is already broken? Keep in mind that as the author, you know the entire story, but the Foundation needs to have discovered what it knows about the SCP object through observation and experimentation. You'll need to convince your reader that someone with no prior knowledge whatsoever of the anomaly managed to somehow figure out (not magically know!) all the information you've got in the article.

Since 71% of the world consists of water then 71% of the pieces must be submerged in water while the other 29% are in vacuum tight containment.

Surface covering doesn't necessarily correspond to sea level though? Sea level is related to depth, which is partially related to how the land itself (I think tectonic plates?) moves.

Analysis of all the pieces showed that there are missing shards to the jugs which aren't in the foundations possession and since that a droplet of water on a shard could raise the sea level several meters

This admittedly feels like unnecessary stakes raising to inflate the drama.

it is important to contain all shards.

The Foundation will contain all anomalous things, regardless of if there's a huge corresponding threat or not.

However only the inner lining of the jug effects the sea level percentage not the outer layer.

How would anyone be able to test this? It's not like sea level is super easy to measure across the entire world.

I don't know about this, personally. It seems like an absurdly powerful item with a bunch of specific mechanics that the Foundation wouldn't really be able to figure out just by looking at the object.

Sooner or later, the characters realize they are in a game and try to escape from the computer through network cards, spreading the game files to other systems as a result. I was inspired by DDLC and other visual novels I played.

Yeah, this seems pretty derivative (also, I believe you meant "sapient" and not "sentient", since lobsters are considered sentient).

The reason why these characters are sentient is because their voice actresses disappeared in a flight across the Sea of Japan.

This might be workable, maybe as tale content. I admit that I'm not super certain if this would work as an SCP article since the primary anomaly isn't that unique on its own; a tale about the investigation of the anomaly would probably draw in more reader attention.

This, I hope, is so it implies that the studio intentionally killed the actresses for publicity or for some dark ritual which forced their souls to be trapped in the game.

I admittedly don't know about this, since I'm guessing there's more than one copy of the game in existence? Or did the studio only intend to produce one copy? Also, if the souls were trapped in the game as a means to cut corners and not need to write dialogue, wouldn't that just make it impossible to playtest the game because then all the responses would be different, and the characters might react badly to people who happen to approach them incorrectly? I don't know if that would necessarily be a selling point, even if money was technically saved by not needing to pay writers.

I think you misunderstood my question. My question was asking if opposing runners dive at the person in first place during the race at actual track meets. If that's not a thing that athletes would need to deal with, why would that manifest here? There's no point in training at a track that purposely puts extra obstacles in that don't help the athlete train.

Understood, but I don't know what the clay runners should do to the person once they have caught up with them other than just dive. They could attack them, but then its just like "HURRR DURRRR ZOMBIES OH NO!!!" and that would be cliche. Also yes, I think I answer your question by saying that the track is completely useless to run on because its just an anomalous running track. In my draft, it was discovered after a group of teens found it near the woods and decided to race on it and that's when they were chased.

You'll have a tough time making this appeal to the readers then, if this is basically just zombies that feed a track that should have been demolished since it's useless for training and spectating.

I fully understand, but how do I make a series of clay zombies seem appealing to the reader. They're just objects that rise from the track itself and run after the person on the track. I could go in the direction of "To cease the anomalous effects of this SCP, you must complete a full lap on the track without being overtaken" and then that could make the track have some sort of purpose I guess because it seems to want to compete against you.

Also yeah about the D Class I wont make a full log ill just say thats how the foundation gained more information about it.

Re: Athletics Track SCP by Mars959Mars959, 24 Mar 2019 06:47

Hello, I guess. I have been into the SCP Series for a while now and am exited to start making some. Hopefully with a bit of hard work and determination, I will get an SCP on to the list.

I have been made aware how overdone some of the tropes I used are but I am quite fond of my character and would prefer to maintain the basic premise all other parts are subject to change. Merlin

My first scp by NeetgeekNeetgeek, 24 Mar 2019 06:41

My name is Dr. MATT i will be reading and writing mostly. Thanks guys for making an amazing website.

Hi guys im going to be writhing some scps with you. My friend got me into this and we have been writing one for the past day. Thanks guys.

Thank you, Zyn.
We had a long conversation about the idea with Shimda in Ideas and Brainstorming (I&B), here: http://www.scp-wiki.net/forum/t-10407526/an-idea-about-a-space-submarine
So you say I should make a bullpoint list about the idea in I&B, right?
With the naming, the system tried four or five times to lock the draft meanwhile I wrote it, so that could be the problem. Dunno how to solve it, maybe I should rename it.
Again, thanks for the answer.

My first SCP! by Dr ThompsonsDr Thompsons, 24 Mar 2019 06:32

It should do, and I think that more of the clay runners should spawn as a result of that.

I think you misunderstood my question. My question was asking if opposing runners dive at the person in first place during the race at actual track meets. If that's not a thing that athletes would need to deal with, why would that manifest here? There's no point in training at a track that purposely puts extra obstacles in that don't help the athlete train.

I don't want to give the humanoids a personality or sapience at all. […] Maybe this could somehow feed the track and the runners are a hunting tool.

You'll have a tough time making this appeal to the readers then, if this is basically just zombies that feed a track that should have been demolished since it's useless for training and spectating.

Through testing on Class D personnel, I will write some test records to say as such.

Eh… you don't need a full test log to explain that the Foundation just used a D-Class.

Re: Athletics Track SCP by ZynZyn, 24 Mar 2019 06:31

Does this not happen at track meets: It should do, and I think that more of the clay runners should spawn as a result of that.

Again why?: I don't want to give the humanoids a personality or sapience at all. They are simply animate objects that pursue one person. Maybe if they're caught on the track the "clay zombies" (as I'll refer to them bc they're made out of the running track material) will sink back down into the track dragging the individual with them. Maybe this could somehow feed the track and the runners are a hunting tool.

How could anyone figure this out?: Through testing on Class D personnel, I will write some test records to say as such. Although I am probably gonna scrap this idea to make it a slow continuous stream of clay zombies.

Re: Athletics Track SCP by Mars959Mars959, 24 Mar 2019 06:08

I am new to the foundation. This is my first SCP idea.

SCP-XXXX is a snake skull of unknown origin. Anyone who touches the tip of any of the fangs will be injected with up to 15mm of venom. The venom corrupts blood cells and turns them into venom cells, causing the subject to have "The Blood of a Snake". This causes numbness, hallucinations, and eventually, Death. Level 3 Security.

I have made some major changes to my SCP article so I'm looking for any and all critique. Here is the sandbox link. The SCP is fourth tab, titled "Rohit, The Beast.

Thank you in advance!

I don't really have an argument for this. I guess all I can say is that they're designated different due to different reasons for being designated. -1 are still anomalies, while -A is just any random person who decides to get freaky. Styling them the same way would have made them too similar or something, I have no idea. Hell if I know.

Also, if you hate differing designation, I have another draft you are absolutely going to hate. Like, oh man that thing has so so many.

containment: will be kept in a standard humanoid-friendly containment cell.

description: a standard Caucasian male, 7 feet in height, 86kg in weight. suffers from Trypophobia (fear of irregular holes) and Trypanopobia (fear of needles). despite this fact, SCP has an irregular arrangement of holes in his back with blue blisters within him. If a blister is broken, a single needle will be produced from it. It is advised not to mention this to it as it will become distressed. Whats most strange about this SCP is its ability to come into contact with hostile SCPs and trigger no hostile responses.

I am of course welcome to any other ideas, this is only my rough idea. it will be more developed!

The "SCP Nurturer" by HogRoasterHogRoaster, 24 Mar 2019 05:42

This site must have seriously fucked up my sense of good taste, because the only thing about this that I truly, passionately object to is the fact that the sub-designations are -1 and -A. Just use 1 and 2 or A and B, consarn it!
