3/27/15 - SCP341, “A Collection of Extra-Solar Orreries”

A collection of eleven brass and iron orreries found in a large storage room of a basement at Oxford comprise SCP-341.  Each orrery is a rough scale model of a different extra-solar star system, complete with planets, moons and one or more suns in the center.  A unique clockwork mechanism under each orrery allows the brass models of planets and moons to spin on axis and rotate around each model of its parent star(s).  Testing dates each machine to between 150-200 years old, but without any specific markings, researchers have been unable to determine who created them.

Why does the Foundation do what they do? I know it's to protect the world but why is the world worth saving to the Foundation? Humanity is slowly destroying itself while the Foundation are just containing an army of nightmares that are waiting patiently to take the world by storm. What's there to gain from holding the inevitable back? Is there some secret the SCP Foundation have to consider normality and the world worth keeping? Or... Is there some thing more?

Are… Are you asking why we’re trying to prevent the end of the world?

… Well, to paraphrase from Guardians of the Galaxy, because we’re the idiots who live in it.

SCP-354: The Red Pool

SCP-354 is a pool of red liquid located in northern Canada. The liquid is similar in consistency to human blood but is non-biological in nature. The density of the liquid increases proportionally with depth. Periodically, entities emerge from the pool and attempt to escape from the enclosure. Thusfar, nearly all creatures emerging from SCP-354 have been extremely hostile and highly dangerous. A log of entities which have emerged from SCP-354 can be found on the main article. One attempt at exploring the pool has been made. A log of the exploration can be found here.

The SCP Foundation is one of the biggest names in science and engineering now, catching up with the likes of Boeing, Lockheed, and Google. Barely a year after coming public with it’s mission and the company is already looking to expand through a new recruitment drive.

If you’re looking to develop your career, or even get a new start, there are many options there. Get in contact with a recruiter or check position listings at scp.so/careers.

The SCP Foundation: Secure. Contain. Protect.

Here’s the newest project I’m attempting. I’m working on the canon that the Foundation is now open to the public to apply to, and works with many of the multinational corporations. They have recruitment ads to hire new specialists.

I hope you all enjoy!

SCP-261: Pan-dimensional Vending

SCP-261 appears to be a large black vending machine with no glass panel and a keypad on the right side. It was found Yokohama, Japan and its origins are unknown. When money is placed into SCP-261 and a three-digit number is entered on the keypad, SCP-261 will vend a random item. The number entered on the keypad has no effect on the item vended, nor has any pattern been detected. Items are always some form of “snack food”, and typically have bright, attention-grabbing packaging. If SCP-261 is used several times in a short period of time, is used while unpowered, and/or large amounts of money are entered before an item is vended, SCP-261 will start to dispense bizarre items. While still “food”, their suitability for human consumption is often non-existent. A full log of objects vended can be found here.
