SCP-914 Experiment Log Sandbox

Note: This page will be purged every week. If your log is rejected or doesn't adhere to the correct format, make sure to save a copy yourself if you want to try again.

Guidelines for future entries can be found here.


Note to all contributors:

Please include your name on all records, along with the date and the total number of items "refined."

Test Log Format:
All test logs should be written in this form:

**Name:**
**Date:** DD/MM/YYYY
**Total Items:**

**Input:**
**Setting:**
**Output:**


If you want to add a note to a log that has already been ported over, copy that log to the bottom of this page and use this template:

REMINDERS TO CONTRIBUTORS: SCP-914 does not create or destroy matter, nor does it change anything on the atomic level. All outputs should contain all and only the matter included in the input. Some grandfathered entries break this rule, but new entries should never do so.

Additional reminder: 914 is a cheeky little bugger. It's unpredictable and apparently kinda snarky. If the output is exactly what you'd expect from the input, or if 914 has just obligingly improved everything you put in, the entry is out-of-character.

  • LeveritasLeveritas (me) will regularly check this page, selecting logs that are of sufficient quality to add to the log and port them over.
  • Tests that fail to adhere to the proper format (date, etc.) will not be ported until fixed.
  • You can place notes at the end of tests, and feel free to be creative when doing so. It can give some interesting insight into dynamics within the Foundation. Having said that, don't make Foundation personnel look like idiots/psychopaths/juvenile/a combination of those. It's a professional research organisation, not a fraternity ward or a death cult.
  • Not too direct. 914 doesn't talk to researchers directly, it ruins the mystery and it's not clear if the machine is sentient or not. If you put in a note, you don't get a response, you might get something that might be a response if you interpret it a certain way, but it also might be random. Or something else entirely.
If you're not comfortable with your in-universe name being used, politely request a change or come to me about it.

Notice: On another note, changing these notices will result in disciplinary actions, meaning Site banning, not just this log.

Some of you might have noticed that I'm being harsher on notes and logs that I deem too LOLFoundation. To illustrate my point, I'm going to use an example from part IV:

I actually edited the note. This is what it originally was:

This is a very small difference, but it makes a world of difference in tone. The first entry works a lot better because it's not a researcher scolding the machine outright like a kid would. It's implying (read, show don't tell) that the researcher became so fed up with the result that he outright left. Wacky entries work well if it's against the cold professionalism that signifies the Foundation, and it doesn't work if it looks like the employees are acting just as unprofessional.

Conversation about Experiment Log 914 and help for your entries can be found at the 914 Discord server.


Added Logs

Please delete yours as soon as you see it. Thanks! (Logs that have been moved here for more than a day have been shortened to save a little space.)


Denied Logs

Denied or equivalent by mod, as well as drafts that have not been touched for a long time. (Will be deleted after a day without activity.)

General Notes

Notices for everyone.

1. Have you had enough sleep? Because if you didn't, it's still NOT an excuse for low-quality tests.
2. If you didn't bother reading the above division of obviously important text, click here!
3. Part XVI is up and running! Find your tests here.
4. New log-writers, please do not use other writers' characters without asking. It is generally seen as bad form. If you want to use someone's character, most of the writers can be contacted via Wikidot PM or, for a quicker response, the 914 Discord server.
5. Everyone is invited to join the above Discord server. This also facilitates easier communication with the mod. If you notice something wrong with a particular test in Experiment Log 914, you can either point it out in the server or do so below.

Name: Junior Researcher Reimer
Date: 20/06/2020
Total Items: Three Pickelhauben used by Prussian infantry, three APS Stechkin Automatic Pistols (not loaded)

Do you want to add a parenthetical to "Picklehaube" to say what it is, colloquially (helmet). Also, are the pistols loaded or unloaded? - Grrrnet

Input: A Prussian Pickelhaube
Setting: 1:1
Output: A Pickelhaube, used by the Bavarian military.

Input: An APS
Setting: 1:1
Output: An M1911

Input: A Prussian Pickelhaube
Setting: 1:1
Output: A flexible Pickelhaube with Pan-European and Victorian markings. Unfolding it yields a map of Europe which shows the alliance systems of the "Imperial League" and the "European Commonwealth", the former of which corresponds to all nations whose royal families are tied to Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom and King Christian IX of Denmark.

This is a little hard to parse — are the families that are tied to King Christian IX the Imperial League or are they the Commonwealth? - Grrrnet

"The former of which" should be clear enough. It's the Imperial League. - Cleve

Input: An APS
Setting: Fine
Output: A Glock 17, with the extra mass used for spare magazines.

I think Reimer would specify which extra parts showed up (or maybe just one of them?) given the general technical tone? But maybe not. -Grrrnet

Input: A Prussian Pickelhaube, an APS
Setting: Very Fine
Output: Two items:

  1. A Pickelhaube, similar in design to those used in the Russian Empire, but with the spike folded into the form of an "ahoge".
  2. A recolored but otherwise unchanged APS.

When using the output APS pistol while wearing the output Pickelhaube, the user is anomalously compelled to move in such a manner that would maximize effectiveness. Using any other APS pistol while wearing the Pickelhaube would not trigger the effects.

"compelled to move in such a manner that would maximize damage and evasive abilities" maybe there's a better way to say this? If it gives you anomalous combat skills, you should maybe just say that. - Grrrnet

No. There are no anomalous combat skills involved. - Cleve

In that case, I have no idea what it means - Grrrnet

I changed every "Picklehaube" to "Pickelhaube" as that is both the correct spelling of the German word, and the word I found in my copy of Oxford's dictionary. - Nitsche

Thanks for pointing out the wrong spelling. I'll fix the rest. - Cleve


Name: Intern Blackwood
Date: 30/06/2020
Total Items: Five pairs of khaki pants

Note: I’d like to test with the same materials again. Hopefully this could provide some insight into 914’s reactions. -Intern Blackwood

Input: One pair of khaki pants
Setting: Rough
Output: A pile of fine dust later confirmed to be a combination of cotton fabric and metal shavings. The powder was accidentally disturbed during retrieval and proved highly inflammable. Intern Blackwood was treated for 2nd degree burns on his face, arms, and chest.

Note: Lesson learned. Use caution and a D-Class when retrieving any output. -Intern Blackwood

Input: One pair of khaki pants
Setting: Coarse
Output: A roll of khaki fabric around a thin metal tube. The fabric was bound tightly to the tube by brown thread.

Input: One pair of khaki pants
Setting: 1:1
Output: A khaki skirt with intricate clockwork-esque designs woven into it with thin metal thread.

Input: One pair of khaki pants
Setting: Fine
Output: One pair of khaki pants with the anomalous property of forcing the wearer to dance uncontrollably. The wearer only stops dancing if the pants are removed or the wearer collapses from exhaustion.

Input: One pair of khaki pants
Setting: Very Fine
Output: An unchanged pair of pants. As soon as Intern Blackwood turned around the pants leapt around his neck and began strangling him. Blackwood was saved with moderate damage to his trachea due to quick action from the security staff. The object was found to anomalously locate and attempt to strangle Blackwood whenever his back was turned. Incinerated with some difficulties. Ashes do not display any anomalous properties.

Note: That was painful. I’m going to refrain from testing for a while due to health concerns. - Intern Blackwood

How is this an improvement? - Mod

I see this as 914 getting "fed up". Or, at least, as fed up as a questionably sentient object can be. It's outputted questionable things for very fine tests before. -Blackwood


Name: R. Miniwa
Date: 02/07/2020
Total Items: One 100cm x 10cm x 10cm rectangular prism of Polyethylene (plastic)

Note: Going to be testing what happens if we put the same item in on Fine multiple times. - R. Miniwa

Input: Above item
Setting: Fine
Output: When output booth was opened, a whoosh of air from the surrounding room went inside, as if the air pressure inside the booth was less than the air pressure outside the booth. Polyethylene box is measured to be slightly larger - 100cm x 11cm x 11cm - though no other changes detected.

Note: It's possible that the air is now inside the box, but measuring that would require a far more precise measuring scale than I had available. - R. Miniwa

OOC: I wrote this before calculating, but the air actually constitutes 16 kilograms of mass (in the input booth). Even if we consider it's only a woosh (not a BOOM like a perfect vacuum), and only 1% of the air goes into the polyethylene, that's still a difference of +160 grams. Should I change this? - Miniwa

Input: Above output
Setting: Fine
Output: When output booth was opened, a whoosh of air from the surrounding room went inside, as in the previous test. Polyethylene is now shaped like a baguette, but is still colored like ordinary polyethylene.

Addendum: D-class turning key admitted that they would like to eat a baguette.

Input: Above output
Setting: Fine
Output: When output booth was opened, a whoosh of air from the surrounding room went inside, as in the previous two tests. Additionally, a pile of objects visually identical to a baguette sat in the middle of the cell. D-class asked to eat one baguette states that it tastes like an ordinary baguette. Burning one baguette has shown similar results to burning an ordinary baguette. No anomalous properties have surfaced, both on the baguettes and on the D-class which ate a baguette.

Note: Testing cancelled. The properties of the baguette have shown to be too similar to regular, biological baguettes. Further testing would likely be in violation of the "no biological testing" rule. - R. Miniwa

Note: Intern Beauvillier was sanctioned for stealing a D-Class standard outfit.

Note: I just wanted to taste the baguette… - Intern Beauvillier


Name: Researcher Darvis
Date: 03/07/2020
Total Items: 1 introduction note, 5 ███████ brand chocolate bunnies, 1 pocket watch

Note: Hey, guys, just visiting and thought I would do a test of two, and saw a test from a while back to try. - Researcher Darvis

Input: 1 note
Setting: 1:1
Output: 1 burning note. Setting was triple-checked to make sure it was not on Rough.

Note: Not sure I like how this is going… - Researcher Darvis

Uncharacteristic of 1:1. There must be a link between the input and the output. - Intern Beauvillier

Input: 5 ███████ brand chocolate bunnies, 1 pocket watch
Setting: Fine
Output: One small, ornate glass jar containing a black marble. The glass is extremely resistant to all damage.

Addendum: Based on several external scans, it appears the jar is anomalous containing a miniature black hole. All attempts at breaking the glass are to stop to prevent large scale destruction and loss of life in the surrounding area.

1. How do you get a black hole from chocolate bunnies and a pocket watch? The glass jar is too big for it to be made only from the glass of the match. And let's say the ornament on the glass is somehow made of the metal from the watch… Where's the chocolate?
2. Breaking the glass won't result in anything dangerous. A miniature black hole this size would last less than a few seconds.
You might need to rewrite your test. - Intern Beauvillier

Thanks for the input; I don't really know how to get it to work the way I want, and it would certainly be strange. I had a good idea for another test, but it probably wouldn't work. Ill just think of a different result for now. - Researcher Darvis

Note: And I was going to ask to keep it…. Put it in some sort of safe storage before I am on the list of people chewed by Veritas for excessive deaths. I'm going to stay far away from 914 for a while… - Researcher Darvis

It's fine if you deny this, or mess with the notes; I just have the black hole because I have a really great idea for a follow-up. - Darvis
