This is a revised draft of the older version, originally wasn't a Dr.Wondertainment product, and I'm still not sure if it will remain one.

I just generally fleshed it out with more experiment logs/documentation, hopefully I didn't over-develop it. I'm still pretty wet behind the ears, so I would appreciate any critiques you guys have.

Either way, find it here, and enjoy!

I have to say, its very amusing how whimsically you go about… describing… a being being decapitated and left in a jar

I like the witticism used in describing a brutally violent scene in which an android getting decapitated.

Is this a thing with you, Conwell?

Thank you so much for your support. I hope it's going to be a success.

Otherworldly artifact containing an elder god is used by rulers of ancient kingdoms to rule with an iron fist. Artifact is sealed away in the Library to stop the wars over its possession. During a raid on the Library by the GOC, the artifact is sent through a Way to be recovered later. It is found by a paranormal detective, who discovers that the elder god’s imperfect sealing reduced it to a childlike mindset. The elder god asks if the detective can be their daddy and show it all the things in the books it had as sole company for so long. The detective accepts, on the condition that the elder god behaves and uses its powers to help him solve cases. Crime fighting and pulpy shenanigans ensue.

This doesn't make any sense to me at all, especially when it has AWCY looking like an 80's fashion company and (as others have mentioned) nobody being just the word "nobody."

The Foundation is a bland bureaucratic organizaiton, and the logos Greenwolf referenced (e.g., AIAD, Sitra Archa, and the departments) are all black and white, generally text-less, highly distinctive, and exist somewhere on the pictographic scale from bleedingly obvious to tangential but still symbolically relevant.

I'm not saying that I hate the art, but given that these icons neither fit Foundation style nor are they (all) the actual logos Field Agents would need to be familiar with which might be good to have in a briefing, I really don't see any in-universe justification for these.

Based on out of universe aesthetics alone… hit and miss?

(No opinion on the overall article, other than the spacing on the Nobody and OIRA entries is still wonky. Edit: I compared it with the old article. Both versions have issues; The old one severely lacked crosslinks, but the collapsibles, pictures, and sleek boxes actually make this one harder to navigate. No vote.)

My idea is an owl species that is invisible to the naked eye and appears to be made of some kind of ethereal energy. The owl registers on UV and infrared night vision devices but disappears entirely at dawn. Putting a captured instance/specimen under a blacklight reveals more detailed features. The species may appear as a shadow or silhouette under moonlight, but no other light source. The species is especially active during severe storms, and glimpses of it may be seen during lightning flashes. The species appears to hunt food normal for large owls, but its means of reproduction is unknown and there is no reliable method for determining sex. Objects or munitions launched or thrown at an instance will either bounce off or pass through, not harming the owl either way. Branches of trees can be seen being effected by owl's movement. The owl appears to be able to teleport over short distances, but not through solid matter. Has the ability to mimic other birds and sounds and may mimic human speech under captivity. Imitates other owl species in order to lure them in and eat them. May be captured by recording a certain vocalization on non-digital storage; playback allows instance to be "conjured", which erases the recording. If an instance dies, it materializes as a small pile of feathers.

The Dragon Sicilian Defense is the purest form of chess artistry. I may just be biased towards any opening with the word Dragon in it though. The St George defense is a close second for my favorite black openings.

This has a combination of elements that would probably turn me towards downvoting in some past articles, but ultimately I just like the story this one tells with them. Plus, it's a different spin on the original, which is nice.

+1

Edit: If I had any real complaint, it would be that it's kinda convenient that post-capture, she happens to make stuff that is specific to SCP personnel or SCPs. I know you said it's a partial list, but there's no indication otherwise or reasoning why.

Along the lines of A Vacuum, the bigger question is, what is this leading to? Is this going to end up in a tale, or…. what?

I only ask because generally speaking, new procedural lore doesn't succeed and get adopted onto the site because somebody proposed it. It gets adopted because it was included in a tale or SCP that people liked, and people found the detail interesting enough to copy and expand. Even the detail-heavy GOI formats were generally copied from successful articles or specifically invented for tales in the GOI contest.

If you want to write it up as something like the amnestics guide, I guess you could, but even that was a codification and expansion of existing practice intended as a piece of standalone fiction.

Re: Threat Scaling system by PetrogradPetrograd, 22 Jan 2017 09:08

I like the Idea i may incorporate the letters with the color syestem

Of course this list is no where near a final draft im going to work on this to hopefully shave it down to a less complicated list but a color coded threat level system just seemed like a simple solution to the lack of lore on how missions were prioritized all this is trying to do is add some extra depth to MTF tales and such

Not a snappy opening, but not devoid of enjoyment to some degree. Upvote withheld until I see where this series is going.

SCP-3125 is a five-dimensional anomalous metastasized mass of bad memes

Sounds like my Facebook feed.

In all seriousness, I just found this via 2111, and binged it. This is possibly my favorite tale series on the site. Take that as you will considering I'm not the most versed in the intricacies of the SCP lore, but I absolutely loved this.

Gonna cash in all your upvotes at The Money Store after this?

This is a skeleton of an article, I can see that you're not yet finished to this so I'll say that if you're going to be having a useful object like this it needs to have some more personality on its own. You don't have to go into the weeds on making it about the wizard or whomever who created it(unless you want to) but talking about what it looks like and maybe giving more detail to the location it was discovered. The test logs could also be a great place to give the object its own style.


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

Re: Another first SCP by RogetRoget, 22 Jan 2017 06:36

It's short and punchy, but it's also basically doing the same thing as 2165 but in tale form. The imagery in finding the universally recognized worst thing in a bathroom stall was well done, but the abbreviation hurts rather than helps here.

One of my least favorites of Beksiński's otherwise stellar output.

Either way, it shouldn't have been there. Deleted.
