http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=SCP%20Foundation Previous threads here.A forewarning: I do not follow the meta-setting of SCP, outlined in the wiki's story entries. Also, some SCP numbers will be changed, removed, etc, to keep things fresh. Expect the unexpected.Character sheets available on request. You are Agent James.You work for the SCP foundation. As an Agent, you are tasked with the retrieval of anomalous items, and the masking of their presence from the world of the unaware. Currently, you have no assignment, but you are being called into the Sub-Overseer's office with Gerald and Kelly for breifing. Seeing as your track record is so clean, you've been allowed to select your mission, usually, from a series of possibilities.The Sub-Overseer is a tall, thin man, with features that remind you of a hawk. His eyes are sharp behind his glasses, and his suit and jacket are a deep, thick red. The tie has a tie-pin of the Foundation logo, with a ruby set in its center. Sub-Overseers are paid well, and each runs a single Containment Facility. There are four Overseers, as far as you know, and each controls a quarter of the Sub-Overseers. Finally, the Overseers decide sweeping legislation across the CFs by committee.The Sub-Overseer relaxes in his chair. "Agents. I've called you in for three assignments..."Continued in following post.
>>26527989"First of all, we have heard reports that an abandoned building has been found in the ice beneath the north pole.""Like an ancient ruin?" Gerald asks. "Actually no. The construction and the architecture seem to be from this century, if not newer.""...How can you get newer than now?" Kelly asks."I forget how green you are, sometimes, Agent Kelly." the Sub says, and she flushes. "In any case, we also have heard from reports near Japan that one of their smaller islands has literally sunk into the ocean. We are currently stymieing news reports, but would like to get to the bottom of the matter as soon as possible."Finally, we have lost all contact, visual, radio, internet, all contact with a high school in Washington." "...How?" you ask, and he slides you a photograph - a hill road leading to what appears to be a black sphere. "The area is cordoned off for now, but this is a very visible issue." he says. "It's up to you which of these problems you deal with, agents. But please make your decision quickly."
I'm still a bit sad about no beach...
>>26527995Well, lets try and go for the Japanese islands.BEACH EPISOOOOOODE
You folded for something as inconsequential as that? Disgusting. I believe you lack the fortitude to drive this game.
>>26527995#3 sounfs to be the most urgent.
I'll vote for 3, but I hope 1 is still available after (if) we survive this mission.
>>265279953 is tempting, but I'd like to go with 1.
>>26527995the high school, let's do some good
>>26527995North pole sounds like some Cthulu-esque shit, could be good, or fatal.Japan is probably getting attacked by tentacle monsters that seek revenge for all the bad porn. They deserve it.and>highschool episode Nah, just nah.Let's go for the North pole.
>>26527995Let's go to glorious nippon.
>>26527995>The construction and the architecture seem to be from this century, if not newerTime traveling SCP?>First Choice all the way
"It seems the high school is the most urgent. Who knows what's happening to those kids." The Sub nods, handing you the file, such as it is - it happened a few hours ago. "Good luck and godspeed." he says. What will you take with you? What transit will you use? What particular questions will you investigate while in the CF regarding the case?
>>26528168a personal aircraft, an old propeller type deal, and a rental car would be the best transport I thinkTake Kelly and Gerald, but Kelly only so far as the plan ride, and make sure to take our sword
>>26528168"Does the sphere absorb all forms of light waves?"
OP, you should make a post telling people that the vote is closed, it helps keep things flowing smoothly
>>26528168>What will you take with you?The regular equipment from last threadOur awesome sword thingSome better communication devices (preferably sealed from magic or such if that is available)A deployable flying camera drone (I don't want to fucking walk into the black dome of doom)A totally inconspicuous minivan with surveillance equipment and some bigger device to contain whatever we find.Some grunts to order into the meatgrinder.That would be all.
ah, so sad I don'y have time for quests on tgI like SCP but can't sped time to followe it.Good luck on containing Agents.
>>26528168Standard equipment, our new sword, the usual firepower, a strong electromagnet (Call it a hunch), and some flare guns.Take the van.>Has anybody ventured into the sphere yet?>Has anybody returned?>Were any odd happenings noticed before the event occurred?>Was there anything particularly unusual happening at the school today?>Any technological disturbances in the area around the sphere?
>>26528230>>26528281Combo of these.
>>26528201It seems so. No matter what form of wave or matter is sent in, it doesn't come back. There has yet to be testing with individuals, however - humans have not been sent in at all, though this is pending report from the local CF and their D-class.You decide to take a private plane, old-fashioned, but capable of holding a lot - and you take with you your old loadout as well as your new weapon. Going with you is a few D-class, an officer to contain them, and Gerald and Kelly with their own equipment. Kelly, interestingly, has brought with her chemical testing equipment, first-aid, three mindkills, and even a Panacea, though you doubt it's necessity. You land, and immediately arrange for a minivan, driving to the locale with your equipment and team.>>26528281No known disturbances before the event - or oddly, afterwards. People ignored it while being escorted out, or, if need be, eliminated. The most unusual event at the school was a planned skip day by the kids. No known tech was malfunctioning.The Event ground zero is the school grounds, and the surrounding area. The school is on a hill, surrounded with very tall trees. Beneath the school, at the base of the hill, is a small shopping center, and a spit. (A small land bridge over a large body of water. Thank you, Gerald.)When you stop, Gerald quickly begins to assess the area for occult activity. Kelly moves to test the chemicals in the nearby water.
>>26528332Alright, lets ask our people what they think.
>>26528332Shit, that may render communications inside impossible. I wonder if it absorbs ALL waves, or just the light spectrum?If we're just twiddling our thumbs while Gerald and Kelly make themselves useful, I suggest we find out how much area the sphere takes of the grounds and possibly a map of the school. I have a feeling we are going to be in complete darkness when we enter.
Sounds to me like a non gravitational black hole, we may be dealing with a universe cross over, we need to chart the area and search for anomolies outside of the sphere
>>26528413I think it's everything. They probably already tried sending something in that sends back and got nothing. So it absorbs at least a bigger part of the electromagnetic spectrum>>26528428I second this. Let's not just go straight in. Search the area, then send in some D-class. We should go in last, if at all.
>>26528457>then send in some D-classI think we should poke it with a stick first. Or at least have someone poke it with a stick.
>>26528413You do a quick estimation - the grounds are average size for a school, and the sphere seems to cover them all. Though you do notice something unusual as you're charting the area - the trees within the bubble, but poking out the top, are much, much taller than they've any right to be. At least twice the size of their brothers outside it. This makes you frown, as you continue your work. A map is not hard to acquire, but you doubt it will be much use - the school itself is small, simply laid out, and easy to navigate. Gerald reports no findings. Kelly looks uncertain. There's water runoff from the school, but it seems... odd. "It's very strange. Almost alien. I need time to analyze it properly."
>>26528457Send a camera first, then a D.
>>26528477That someone being a D-class, and then he goes in. D-class are our equivalent of sticks.
>>26528477I was thinking a rock on the end of a string, and tug it back
>>26528483Kelly, quarantine it and experiment, have a D-Class drink it in somewhere contained.>>26528492Do this combined with >>26528499
>>26528483"Alright, get on that, I'm going to try sending a camera in."We bought a flying camera drone, right? Let's get that up and running.
>>26528491It absorbs light. We would just see ADVANCED DARKNESS.>>26528499I thought that was moot since it absorbs all matter
>>26528332Skip day, hm?I think we should find the one who was organising that. He might have planned this to provide a reason to ditch.
>>26528531we would find out whether or not we can pull the rock back out, whether it sticks, or if it shears off
>>26528483So the stuff is not gone, good to know.>the trees within the bubble, but poking out the top, are much, much taller than they've any right to be>There's water runoff from the school, but it seems... oddOh great, a giant bubble that secretes Sonic hedgehog, not the character, the growth protein.Yes, there is a growth protein called Sonic hedgehog, and yes it is very important.
>>26528531We know that it absorbs light. We don't know if it absorbs cameras.And since it does absorb light, there's a good chance that the "inside", wherever it is, is well lit.
>>26528537Yes, quite odd. Lets go have a visit, shall we?>>26528555 >No matter what form of wave or matter is sent in, it doesn't come back>>26528546Could be spatial displacement on the trees. Not sure about the mutant water though
>>26528519She nods and scurries off to do more tests while Gerald watches you assemble the drone. "That shit ain't gonna work." he says. "It doesn't have to. It's just going to answer a few things for us." you say, as you start it up. As soon as you fly it into the anomaly, the signal cuts out, dead - at least you think, initially. But something about the video distortion right at the end makes you think. When these things normally die out, they go black instantly. What you got was a scrambled image, then it went black. "See?" "No, this is good." you say. "There is no failed experiments. Only data." you take the video onto a disk, and squirrel it away for later. Interesting. Visiting the kid who organized the skip day yeilds only a shrug and an explanation that it's traditional. Even his mother's class did it. You can't spot the discrepency here. Something, you think, is obvious, sitting just outside your scope.
Send in a couple of D-class, wait, and if nothing happens cram the damn thing into a box and get it in a bigger concrete box.Sound good?
>>26528667seriously, rope and rock, how does something halfway into the field react?
>>26528667>You can't spot the discrepency here. Something, you think, is obvious, sitting just outside your scope.Damn it, this is a hint isn't. What does "outside our scope" mean anons? I'm a dense motherfucker.>>26528698Might as well try this to seem useful.
>>26528698Substitute the rock for a D-class. A rock can't talk.
>>26528667See: >>26528515Have a D-Class walk into there.Shouting every so often with a rope tied around him.
>>26528730Oh and have some armed personnel stay outside where he went in, for dealing with what comes back out.
>>26528725>Damn it, this is a hint isn't. What does "outside our scope" mean anons?I have no idea either, but I bet its something obvious. Something that if we ignore it will have bad consequences.Think anons, think.
You assign a D-class with walking in, rope tied around his waist tightly. When he enters, the rope goes slack, and when you pull it out, it emerges around a very, very, very bleached set of bones. Gerald stares. "Well. That's a result." he says. "Nothing else comin' out?""Nothing. Not even what we sent him in in." you mutter. "..." he frowns. "This is weird as hell." "...Yes?" "No, I mean, it's weird for an SCP. Most of these things ain't so fuckin' passive." he grumbles, picking up a long stick and waving it through the anomaly. What he gets back slackens in his hand and falls to the ground like so much ooze. "I mean, what the fuck?"
>>26528817Oh.Yeah, accelerated time. Hence the trees.
>>26528817>he rope goes slack, and when you pull it out, it emerges around a very, very, very bleached set of bones.>The trees are taller than they should beThe field accelerates time within its boundry
Shut up, EGO
Quickcheck if the trees are in the same placeThis is super accelerated time, those aren't bleached bones they're aerial fossils
>>26528832>>26528839What the fuck are we going to DO against it?Maybe it needs energy to keep doing that, hence the light absorption.Does it go slower at night?
>>26528667>skip day is traditional>anomaly appears on skip day>people in the town don't appear to notice anything odd about the anomaly or care about itWe can do a thorough search of the town's historical records, yes?
>>26528832>>26528839Next question: Can it be moved?
I don't even know what we can do about this, but we'll probably need a large amount of goldIs there an SCP that can mass produce gold?
>>26528667If the anomaly does accelerate time, then the last image we received might actually be an immense amount of compressed video.
>>26528909Gold? Why gold?
>>26528909the vending machine?
>>26528924yeah,, we should see about uncompressing it. get the IT guys on it
>>26528924Fucking BRILLIANT!But I don't think an ordinary 30dps camera can be slowed down enought to see anything.Get another drone with a high speed camera.>>26528870Also this.
>>26528817Isn't that a good thing Gerald?If this thing started moving we'd be bleached bones.Lets go back to the video and play it in 10000x slowmo.
>>26528924Ah nice! lets go decompress that footage.>>26528909Why? Gold foil hazmat suit? Mad Dosh?
>>26528926Gold doesn't react. You let it sit for a million years and nothing really happens to it, so it's the only thing that won't need to be immediately replaced upon touching the anomaly, or maybe just as coatings
It's probably a good idea to try and figure out the rate of time passage inside.Pocket watch on a stick?
>>26528937>>26528951That's not how cameras work.>>26528962But that's not going to help us, like at all.
>>26528871How the hell would you move it?>>26528842The trees are in the same place, of course. But then you notice something else - while they are taller, they aren't growing at the rate skelefication would suggest. They're just bigger. Gerald hums 'let's do the time warp again', then chuckles. "Interesting." You rub your chin as Kelly comes back. "I know why the water's weird.""It's from the future?" you ask. "Yes? How..." You point at the skeleton. "Oh." she says. "Well, that's the odd thing, the water is about ten years further along. I think. It's hard to be accurate with something so fiddly as this." >Get another drone with a high speed camera.You order one right away. Something about this assumption of simple time acceleration is bothering you.
>>26528947at the same time, we could get SOMETHING out of it>>26528976Au contrare, it will confirm our beleifs about it being and temporal accelerant (tm)
>>26528985SCP is choosing humanoids more than anyone else.
>>26528962The only way this could be used in this research is making gold chains to make sure they don't decay after whatever is exposed to the anomaly stays there for prolonged periods of time.
>>26528976if you made a clock out of gold you could stick it in and pull it out to gauge the time without serious deteriorating, but carbon dating would work better most likely
>>26528985It's odd that the sphere is solid black if the anomaly just accelerates time. Light should be able to pass through.
>>26528963It moves VERY fast, that D-class was in there for a few seconds and his clothes decomposed, since they are probalby cheap and made of large quantities of plastic.Better look at this bones and analyze via carbon dating.
>>26529012it is passing through. its just not reflecting
>>26529012If the sphere affects the passage of time, it also affects the speed of light. I don't know if it should be entirely black, but I don't think you should be able to watch what's behind it normally, either.
>>26529027Didn't see that post fast enough >>26528985Disregard what I said.Let's wait for the drones results.
Anyone know about how long it takes for light to decay outside of the visible range?
>>26528985Maybe it's not a time acceleration field, but a segment of the future superimposed on our time?If that's the case, putting something into the field would cause it to instantly become it's future self, rather than just accelerating it.Do we have a camera that we think would last ten years?
>>26529012What if it's in fact emitting intense radiation and the wavelength is just too short to see because it's blueshifted?
>>26529051That's an idea.
>>26529051we would never be able to power it for that long in such a short span of time
>>26529012It's possible that time accelerates faster to infinity the farther in you get, hence the light never travels back out past a certain point.Might be why we can get cameras to record a little way in.>>26529051Future overlaying the present brings up a lot of odd things, like the possibility of time loops.Things happen in/because of the sphere because the sphere appeared there X years ago?
>>26529049~5 billion light years of travel , starting at high intensity blue. (Light doesn't experiece time). This is clearly not what is happening here.>>26529067Then we'd be cooked. Trust me, you would notice.
>>26528985>>How the hell would you move it?With a fan.Have we found out if air goes through it or moves the sphere yet?
>>26529075If the camera is becoming its future self, it doesn't necessarily have to be powered for an entire decade just to be powered ten years from now.
>>26529075if we have a generator and a cabel long enough
It's SCP, it doesn't have to make sense.We need to figure out a way to either do:1) Kill it2) Move itIf failing both of these we should contact the overseer.
>>26529121How about c) make it less noticeable (e.g. shrink it) and contain it on-site?
>>26529051>Maybe it's not a time acceleration field, but a segment of the future superimposed on our time?!This... Seems more likely. You stand up, staring at the sphere. "Ten years of growth for the trees. Ten years of starvation for our friend here." you tap the bones with your foot. "Ten years for the camera. Ten years for the stick. And the water runoff." you say, nodding. "It makes sense. But why was it ignored?" "That's a damn good question." Gerald mutters. "Unless there's a memetic virus attatched? Or the Foundation is trying a new gas." he adds lamely, "And didn't fucking tell anyone. It's happened." "But what do we DO with it?" Kelly says. "And what about those kids?" "Anyone who goes in there isn't coming out for at least ten years by their own reckoning." you say, "And I don't think anyone but D-class want that."
>>26529151Well, if you've got any ideas on how to......
>>26529158Alright, lets give in a quick report and ask for some advise.
>>26529164Throw all caution to the wind, load the van with supplies, go in like the U.S. marshal and his three daughters, look for whatever defines the sphere's radius and fiddle with it?
>>26529164build a building around it, claim its a weapons testing facility
Well, theoretically, if we just contain the site for ten years, we'll catch up with the future and will be able to work on it when it's not a murderhole, thus causing a time paradox and then we win! right?
>>26529181Yeah, let's report back. At least now we know how it works.
>>26529158give a class D ten years worth of rations send him in and tell him to immediately exit.for science
>>26529158We need a cold storage truck, extra clothes, and ten years worth of non decomposing food. Then someone could possibly make their way in/out of the bubble. Are there any insects coming out of the bubble or such?
>>26529213>ten years worth of rationsYeah no, you couldn't get that much in fast enough.
>>26529213>>26529213pretty sure the time pass is near instantaneous and not actually percieved, or the guy would have retreated and reported
>>26529158Well, if the effects are consistent with what we know, the kids are probably dead; Even if they had food inside, it probably wouldn't last 10 years, even if the time distortion just locks you inside instead of just effecting the time upon you.
>>26529158All we need now is a chronometer and a rig to pass it through the very edge of the sphere at different speeds.Then we will have confirmed that we still have no idea what to do about this.
>>26529248Maybe an apparatus inside is causing the anomaly, we need to send something inside to retrieve, deactivate or destroy it.
>>26529233The way I think it probably works is that once you're inside, the sphere becomes an impenetrable wall for ten years. Once those ten years are up, it turns into a portal to right now.
Fucking Christ. Let's just build a bigass concrete shelter around it, like they did with Chernobyl.
>>26529158Lets just report it to overseer. All we can do is secure the perimeter, contain the anomaly, and protect the public from it.
>>26529158"Alrighty, let's send a D Class in with a journal and instructions to write an entry every day. That would help us determine if the time is applied instantly, or perceived differently from within."
>>26529229If time inside isn't accelerated, but simply displaced, we don't need to dump them in all at once.
>>26529300And a nominal amount of rations, tell him it's enough to last him. We're not crue
>>26529307Well, that means we could go in normally, find the source and turn it off. Granted we do it before we die of hunger/thirst. We'd have a few days to find the problem, weeks if we take supplies.I say we do it, right after we did this >>26529300
>>26529338>Well, that means we could go in normally, find the source and turn it offWhat if it can't be done?
>>26529300I feel like this is an unethical way of gathering information
>>26529344Then we're fucking dead.Or we set up some farms, live a nice country life, bang our assistant and come out 10 years older and with 3 children.
>Magic bubble sends things 10 years forward>send in D class who would never live more than a year yet alone 10Send in someone who has more than 10 years to live
>>26529344plan bravo: contain and keep people out via>>26529191
>>26529357Welcome to the Foundation, enjoy your stay.
>>26529300We should also instruct him to investigate the center of the sphere. There has got to be a reason that it's spherical.
>>26529344Then we'll have to, I dunno, build a drone that can survive 10 years, and then direct it to turn off whatever the fuck is causing the field.
>>26529357No it's cool, D Class are gathered from death row.
>>26529357Ethics don't apply to D class personnel
>>26529366Just postpone his death sentence for a decade or two for good measure.
>>26529386Or so they tell you. Seems pretty fishy to me, what with the rate some SCPs burn through those guys.
I think the scope quip from earlier is important Bring in some advanced camera equient that can read the entirety of the EM spectrum try to find out what is going in and outMaybe that can give us a clue about the inside
>>26529300"Send in a D Class with nominal rations and a journal. He's to write every day." you say. "And when - or if - we pull him out, we find out the result, and possible future avenues." The others agree with you, and soon enough, you send him in. "Now the interesting part. How does he come out?" you ask. Gerald blinks, then swears, grabbing the both of you and handing you ammo. An arrow strikes the car he's pulled you behind, bouncing off, then another embeds into a tree just behind it. "Fucking hell, we shoulda known better!"
>>26529404We import them from China.
>>26529404There are a ton of SCP's that they use to clone them.
>>26529413"He's gone native?"
>>26529413See >>26528685"ID targets and drop 'em!"
>>26529413Oh great, he has plotted his revenge.
>>26529413"Lets see if our sword can do something with it's range..."
>>26529413Damn. We should have sent him in on chair with some science-looking bits glued on and told him that we'll fetch him with it after [est. time it takes for his rations to run out].
>>26529413tag him and bag himnonlethal if we can, but he's just a D Class
>>26529413He'll probably keep having shot at our afterimages or estimated positions or whatever until his rations ran out. Might be a good idea to move to another sector of the sphere, it seems unlikely that he shot everywhere.
>>26529438>"ID targets and drop 'em!""Can't see shit, sir. He's inside a black sphere, remember?"
>>26529413Well at least now we know that it is livable inside.After he runs out of food, or we somehow kill him, we can see about sending in some more who are chained to a point outside the zone of effect, with a secondary chain/cord linked to a journal sent with them.We wait a bit, then pull both out.If we can't retrieve the D class, we might be able to communicate via sending in a chained journal with messages and pulling it back out again, making sure the materials are decently long-lasting.We could even try this if we are unable to kill the one in there now.
>>26529502right, use the sword then
>>26529432"Seems that way. God knows, what happened with..." he does some mental calculations, "Jesus christ, there's at least a thousand people in there, for fuck's sake. And plenty adults... Good lord." he mutters. "Imagine what he fucking told them, man?" "What... Gerald, what are you talking about?" "Call the fucking CF, we need some pants-shitting backup is what!" "But-" "This is a motherfucking emergency, goddamnit! There's a tiny army in there!" Kelly looks to be on the verge of panic. Gerald is approaching it.You, however, feel oddly calm.
>>26529577Remind me why we didn't chain him to a point outside the sphere?Hell, i would think at least having a retrieval chain would at least be standard procedure.
>>26529577drop an FAEB on the site. limited area like that there's no way they'd be able to avoid it
>>26529577"Wait, guys, lets just fall back and call in backup, no need to cause unnecessary casualties here."
>>26529577can we send an scp inside
>>26529577>backup>implyingDrop some 3-Quinuclidinyl benzilate in there. Doesn't decay, very persistend, very deadly.
>>26529577"Oh Christ, I get it. Okay, yeah, let's call in some backup. As far as I can tell, they aren't going to have any weaponry more advanced than bows and arrows, so we should be able to hold this back, but shit, there goes any chance of rescuing the populace. Not to mention, this is gonna be a huge cover up job."Call the CF"Situation has gone FUBAR, we need backup, right away."
>>26529628SCP cross-testing with one of them practically not understood? Sounds like a recipe for the kind of disaster that has a classification.
>>26529653>Mobile Task Force Nu-1 (aka "Cause and Effective"): Highly-trained experts on probability, chance, and event manipulation, specializing in using temporal anomalies, resolving time-travel paradoxes, and the understanding the laws of causality.
>>26529577So all the kids that were trapped there each time the sphere appeared in the past is in there? >>26529615I'd probably do that, but I don't know if the chemicals would stay potent after a decade
>>26529634It's not deadly, thought of the wrong thing. But it's still perfect for the situation. It incapacitates effectively and even if we send it forward 10 years it will work on contact.
>>26529695given a large enough amount, I bet it could kill
Let's say we gas them now.Who's going to fire those arrows?Or could he have fired them ten years in the "past", and the wall remembers their momentum? It did remember that the rope on the first D-Class was attached to something, after all.
>>26529669Get some of these guys armed with this>>26529695.That compound affects the nerves like a neurotoxin, so only large doses kill.
I think we need to call in one of those Mobile Task Forces
Just throwing this out there:>School temporal? anomaly>Building from the future in antarctica>Sunken Island (some islands slowly sink with time.)
>>26529740It also leaves people incapacitate for about 3 days and they very often can't remember what happened to them. It's perfect.Get some stab-proof body armor and go.
>>26529634>>26529695"3-Quinuclidinyl benzilate?" you ask Kelly, who recovers. "Yes. Yessss." she nods. "Get enough and you could knock the whole school on its ass for a while. Long enough for us to pull out and secure the area.""But if we gas them, who fired the-" Gerald punches out a strong, pale young man who mounts the car. "Those guys." he says. "They're coming out. They know it's safe to cross now." "Should we call in a task force?" "Something this big, they'll bring in Omega." he says. "You want that?" You look around at the small town around you. Between Kelly, and Gerald, and your phone.>Call in (Omega)>Call in (Chemical)>Call in (write in) >Defend>Fall back>Write in
>>26529756Might be worth to check out the size of the other two. Also: Three at the same day.Also also: >On this day people skipped school for generations.
>>26529773>Call in (Omega)call in the troops!
>>26529773> Call in Chemical. They need to be quick.> Calling in Omega as a low priority mission. If they have something more important to do, they should do that. Otherwise they should come.
>>26529773Call in Omega, preferably with large quantities of that stuff and fall back.>GET IN DA CHOP- uh VAN
We are talking about the "air support" kind of omega here, right? Not the "primordial vampire" kind of omega?
>>26529773Omega all the way. I want that class D's head on a pike by the evening.
there is a chance they went cannibal
>>26529756I was gonna say that the building in the sphere was in the North pole, but that seemed silly.>>26529773Going with >>26529771 >>26529740We need a team to deal with the current situation and help us figure out this temporal zone
>>26529851check the bones for any marks?
"Gerald, call in the chemical drop. We're getting the fuck out of here. Another team can secure the area, I'll call in details." He nods, and you all get aboard the van as you're pelted by arrows and other assaults, barely escaping them. "It's in." he says, as you hear a distant explosion. "That was the release of the stuff over a large area." he adds. "They'll cordon the area, naturalize the natives, and the like. We're credited for discovering the nature of things." he relaxes.Kelly is still shaking.
>>26529773Chemical weapons.There's no chance they're equipped to stave off a gas attack.
>>26530004try to cheer her up, call in to the sub-overseer for a quick debrief and make sure that our job is done before moving on to the next one
>>26530004Well shit. We should have handled that better.I don't think we'll be getting much credit for this.Whatever, let's see how it continues.
>>26530004We still don't know why the townspeople ignored the thing. There needs to be a full investigation here, really.Ask Kelly how she feels about field work.
>>26530004Pat her on the back"First time in a hostile contact? Don't worry your little head, Gerald and I deal with stuff like this all the time."
>>26530004>Kelly is still shaking.schedule him for a psych evaluation before his SAN plummets too far
>>26530074Let out that last sentence, we don't want to appear badass.Just comfort her and tell her she'll get used to it.
>>26530004I'd still like to note the significance of the date this happened. It was a day where traditionally the have been few students within the school for decades. Either the effect has its origin in the path or someone predicted this would happen and tried to reduce the causalities by creating this tradition.
>>26530004We did our job, a little bit of a problem but nothing too large for our organization to deal with.Kelly, you should feel a little better about yourself, you did a great job with that water, but if you feel this is too.........then I'll recommend you to another part of the branch if you so wish.
>>26530004"Calm down, Rookie. It gets easier.Can't say this mission went as planned, but it could have been a lot worse."
>>26530053na we did what we could
"It's alright, Kelly. Things like this happen on the job all the time. After we're done with paperwork, we'll get a drink in you." She nods, laying back into the seat. Gerald looks over at you as if to ask if she's worth keeping around as he pulls an arrow from his shoulder. "Arrows made from fucking anything they could find." he grumbles, tossing it down. "Muthafuckers. Good job, though. Most Agents on their third or fourth mission fucking lose it." he says with a laugh. "Remember Yan?" he asks me. "Yan?" "Exactly. I was on mindkill, but apparently he threw himself into an anomaly and got un-personed."
>>26530394"Sometimes you are just so full of shit, Gerald. Stop trying to scare the rookie with those crazy stories of yours."
>>26530394She may be in shock. Does she have a blanket? Make small talk, like what made her get into this line of work.
Oh Jeez, we have to toughen her up somehow.If she's so affected by this what would happen if we take her to that damn place in the Arctic?
>>26530409She smiles at the banter between you two. "No, but... seriously, kid. You did fine." Gerald softens a bit, patting her shoulder. "Not all of them spit out angry D-class-trained armies." he says with a chuckle. "Hell, my father was on the team that caught the eyepods." And so he spins the story - apparently they were found in an old-folks home, and wanted to be found by the Foundation. The securement was easy. Almost like they were recruited, not caught.
>>26530527The eyepods are double agents.MAXIMUM PARANOIA
>>26530497Rookies are like that. At least she didn't start screaming bloody murder and jeopardize the mission. I think sheer experience will harden her heart.>>26530527Heh, are we going to have some insight on when Gerald and James met? Mini flashback?
>>26530602And so you return to base and part ways. But not before your phone rings."Hey, hey, Foundation doggie." says a familiar voice. "How you doin'?"
>>26530783STOP CALLING ME CARL IT IS NOT FUN
>>26530783"Considering I just escaped about 1000 really angry people that think I was the reason they were trapped 10 years some highschool grounds I'm doing fine. How about you?"
>>26530783"sorry I think you have the wrong number this is pizza hut"
>>26530853"Oh, I'm fine. Riding the lines, you know, running the wires. I thought I'd give you a ring. You know your old ex has your number, still?" he asks. That voice. "I remember how you said, what was it... Lots of rats, right? Well. Look at the CF."You look up, at the big white building. "Tick. Tick. Bang." All the lights go out. At once. "THE BROKEN HAND SLIPS FREE ITS BONDS, BITCH!"
>>26530783"Sigh, I thought I made it clear you wouldn't use my work phone" >>26530870No, this is Patrick
>>26530887oh god what did this asshole do now?
>>26530887THE DJ IS BACK!
>>26530907I thought we turned him in to swiss cheese
Rolled 11>>26530783"Look, stop fucking calling me Carl, I know its you and I did not fucking steal your lunch for the last time, I swear on all that is holy."We actually stole his lunch but Carl deserved it, Carl is a prick.
>>26527989Character sheets requested
>>26530926"I killed you.""You did, you did. Susan, too. I remember, oh, I remember. And now you're gonna die. Everything in that damn place is gonna walk right out. Over your dead fuckin' body." "...""You think we're stupid, dog? We free so many of these things. And so many of them are so grateful." "Djinnis often grant wishes, yes." Laughter. "I'm gonna haunt you, James. I'm gonna haunt you for fuckin' ever, and I'm gonna kill you. But first you should probably help your little prison."The line dies. End of ThreadTo be continued
>>26531023Time to play SCP: Containment Breach
>>26531023FfffffffffffuuuuckCan our sword cut ghosts?
>>26531023Looks like the Broken Hand implanted a mole into the ranks of our CF division and now a previous encounter we murked a while back has acquired an SCP that resurrects him into an omniscient entity.Well, fuck.
>>26531162I was just thinking that
>>26531070and some were deep in that place the player is running for his fucking life
>>26531162I think it can cut anything we can visualize cutting.So if he tries to appear as a ~Spooky~ ghost, we can chop his intangible ass in half, but if he just shows up as a disembodied voice, we cant do anything.Of course, we could be totally wrong about the sword and it just cuts like a normal blade, but it's fun to speculate.
This getting archived?
>>26531023Just wondering OP, were you frustrated a bit that we couldn't figure out the Black Sphere soon enough? You dropped a bunch of hints on us, so I figured as much.
>>26531315 You pretty much got it, by the end. It had a minor memetic effect caused by tradition, but you also guessed that anyway.
>>26531315I thought it went pretty well, really. The ideal is for the players to take a little while working things out, since it isn't fun if it's too obvious, but it also isn't fun if the players absolutely can't work it out.
>>26531365>>26531346Huh, didn't really see that till now. It seemed...enjoyable. Is this what a good quest is? Its been a while.>>26531284If no one wants to do it, I'll get it done
Wasn't the SCP only surrounding a school? How were there at least a thousand people in it? Have schools gotten that large?
>>26531433My first school had about 1100 students. It's considered mid-sized.My second one had about half that amount.So yeah, schools are pretty big nowadays
>>26531023What does he think we are, the fucking Cabin the Woods? There should be failsafes in place for power failures.
Archived here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/26527989/Pretty fun quest so far, just kinda confused of the few sages here and there. Until next time I guess.
>>26531551The original purpose of saging is just not bumping the discussion because your post adds little to it. It's not a downvote.
>>26531580I know that, but they didn't sound too happy>>26528056>>26528841
>>26531023I had to go halway through, we handled that ok.ish I think. Thanks for the quest, I was waiting for something new and good that is in a modern setting.Anyway, if you're still here >To be continuedRough time estimate when?
>>26531694You'll be notified. https://twitter.com/HowDoIShotTrip At least a day in advance. Not tomorrow.
>>26531729Alright. See ya.
>>26531537There are failsafes in place for everything. However, no failsafe is a complete defense when you're dealing with SCPs, particularly if there is a mole within the containment facility who can help things along by sabotaging critical components.
>>26531740Most of the containment cells are of physical nature. Without power the ton heavy gates just can't get lifted. However there is some stuff that needs energy to be contained.
>>26531777The Broken Hand's whole deal is freeing SCPs, so I wouldn't be surprised if they had means of bypassing or destroying physical containment measures.
