6/23/15 - SCP276, “Time Schooner”

SCP-276 has a variable shape, size, and mass, but always appears to be a nautical vessel of make and model relevant to whatever era it exists in. Currently, it takes the form of a large sailing schooner, 92.93 m (304.9 ft) in length and weighing 1360 metric tonnes. Under normal conditions, SCP-276 operates as a standard sailing vessel, capable of achieving 16.2 knots at optimal conditions, regardless of its current manifestation.

On SCP-276’s bridge, near the wheel of the ship, is a throttle labeled “Forward”, “Back”, and “Back Again”. Usage of any of these functions will activate SCP-276’s ability to travel through time, while taking anyone currently on the vessel as well. This ability is only limited by the requirement that the era in question possesses some form of boat. Attempts made to travel before the emergence of human life have failed, as well as trips made into the far future. The throttle will act in relation to the current era, with the exception of “Back Again” which will return SCP-276 to modern time. It is unknown if operation of SCP-276 can fundamentally alter history, due to the retroactive nature of time. Any changes made would have already taken effect, and all current research into SCP-276 is related to making sure that any possible manipulation of the time line does not occur.

The Mausoleum of Tughluq Temür, Almaliq, Xinjiang (East Turkestan)

The Mausoleum of Tughluq Temür is located in Huocheng, a town in the upper Ili River Valley of northern Xinjiang, near the border with Kazakhstan. It was ostensibly built in 1363 upon the death of Tughluq Temür Khan (1359-1363), the last descendant of Genghis Khan in the Chagatayid line. Tughluq Temür ruled in Mogholistan, beyond the Syr Darya River, and sieged Huocheng between 1360 and 1362 in his quest to establish Chagatai rule in the region. With his death in 1363, the Khanate crumbled and Tamerlane who was a vassal under Temur incorporated the region into the kingdom he established at Samarkand.

Tughluq Temür’s mausoleum resembles tombs in Bukhara and further west, with its exclusive use of arches and domes. The brick mausoleum is about eleven meters wide and sixteen meters deep with a monumental entry arch. A brick dome, plastered white on the exterior, rises from the center of the tomb to an apex of fourteen meters. A balcony runs along its inner rim. Inside are two cenotaphs marking the graves of Tughluq Temür and his son.

In contrast with the whitewashed exterior walls, which are modestly adorned with shallow niches, the front elevation of the mausoleum is richly detailed with a mosaic of primarily blue and white tiles. The arched portal recess is bordered with inscriptive bands and its surfaces are covered with interlaced stars and floral patterns composed of green, blue, purple brown, black and white on tile mosaic. The tympanum of the arch is decorated in blue and white tiles with the word “Allah” in Kufic script. The lower portion is, likewise uniquely tiled, although the tilework around the wooden door is no longer intact.

Beside the mausoleum is an identical yet smaller building, decorated simply with a brick cornice. This subsidiary building is said to contain the tomb of Tughluq Temür’s daughter.
