The theme for the month of November was Instrument!

  • In SCP-3222 ("A Very Real Pencil"), by CannedBreadCannedBread, the Foundation learns of the man behind the pencil.
  • In SCP-926 ("Guqin"), by spikebrennanspikebrennan, the music plays. The war follows.
  • In SCP-1774 ("The Proof's Equipment"), by IhpIhp, the path of least resistance is outright ignored.

Editor's Choice

SCP-4901 - A blend of Hindu/Korean mythos and an exploration into dementia by a criminally underrated author, KindlyTurtleClemKindlyTurtleClem.

Who Wants to Live Forever - The start of something great, Uncle NicoliniUncle Nicolini and Gabriel JadeGabriel Jade manage to get some of the oldest characters on the site (Kain and Bright) and fuse them with one of the site's newest canons (End of Death). I await more.

You will notice little '📈' emojis besides some articles. That denotes SCP articles which were under 30 and tales which were under 20 when this edition of site news was posted. Give them a little love! Speaking from personal experience, the most frustrating thing that can happen to an article is not deletion, but stagnating below 20 without any comments. So try to read, vote, and comment on these articles! They're often hidden gems :)

Week of November 22nd:





In honor of the r/SCP subreddit reaching 150 thousand subscribers this month this section features artwork submissions to that subreddit.
We'll start with brand new Reddit poster u/AvocadoOfcourse's pastel depictions of SCP-610 infection:
SCP-610 Infecting a moose A drawing of SCP-610 i made

u/CryptidCookie_, like u/AvocadoOfcourse, is a brand new submitter of soft, warm, and pleasant high quality artwork to r/SCP:

Here are a few similarly well made one-offs from November:
Another shot at SCP-1826 by u/Redna_VanLee This commission by scp illustration is a medieval version of scp 2030. Tell me what you think of him... posted by u/Acekamz

In this month's newsletter we're featuring more 3D art than usual. Quite a lot was submitted to the subreddit this month:
MTF/SCP inspired artwork by u/SunBro-PraiseTheSun Larry goes sicko mode by u/scpdoge

Continuing with 3D art - u/GalagaMarine works in Garry's Mod and manages to extract a wide range of tones and moods from the fairly limited tools available to them:
SCP-173 is behaving strangely and is in a movie theater in the back... The Bright Hallway Initial Retrieval
A kind being during a breach. The Foundation speaks to Sovereign. Larry in the Snow.

And to conclude this 3D mini-feature we have u/aruspice_scp. They are one of the developers of SCP Containment Breach Unity, and have been showing off progress on the game's updates as well as other SCP 3D modelling work they have done:
MTF and SCP guard models for SCP Unity (More in comments!) WIP of the lower sublevel of Light Containment Zone in SCP Unity SCP 179 statue
They also shared a couple of videos this month:

u/Zhange000 (SCP-wiki art page) shared a detailed painting of the epic battle between SCP-3700-1 and SCP-3700-2:

Zoom in for the details of these drawings by u/Big_Country_:

Some more (more gruesome) u/Deadspace123 works this month:

After making 15 parts of an original comic (check September and October's newsletter or see their SCP-wiki art page for details on that) u/shinyjew22 has continued to draw Sarkic and Mekhanite characters:
GOC operative vs Sarkic cultist Recovered sarkic artwork: The Great Devourer Upon Us All The conception of a world. Recovered Mekhanite depiction. Depiction of the great undulator.

u/Aoneareyou60 (SCP-wiki art page) continues to impress with a staggering amount of new art posted month after month. Take a look at all their many November submissions.

  • r/DankMemesFromSite19 - the popular SCP meme subreddit, reached 40 thousand subscribers.

Wiki artwork pages that have had updates this month:

See the SCP Artwork Hub for a listing of nearly 70 artwork pages on this wiki.


Q: Can I replace a blurb that you wrote for one of my articles with my own? I'm not satisfied with it.

A: Absolutely. You will always have that option at any point.

Q: I noticed an error/typo/incorrect information and wish to correct it. May I?

A: Sure! If the changes are not limited to your own article(s) and/or are substantial changes across multiple entries, you should post in that month's discussion page and then make the changes.

Q: I wrote an article and it seems to have stuck. Can I send a blurb of mine to one of the frequent collaborators?

A: Yup! It's much easier if you come to us about it, and it gives you the control over what you want shown on the news page.
