WELCOME TO THE SCP FOUNDATION




Welcome
SCP artifacts pose a significant threat to global security. Various agencies from around the world operate to maintain human independence from extra-terrestrial, extra-dimensional, and extra-universal threat. In the past humankind has been at the whim of these bizarre artifacts and similar phenomena, but we have now reached a point in history where we can begin to control and contain these defiances of natural law.

You are now working for the SCP Foundation. You have no need to understand how or why we operate. What you do need to understand is how vital your mission is.

Our Goals

    Observe preternatural phenomena and develop new theories of science based on their observable behavior.
    Contain potentially dangerous phenomena.
    Develop safety procedures for dealing with all future phenomena.
    Observe, detain, and destroy any one or any thing preventing us from accomplishing the above-stated goals.

Quote from: The Administrator
    Mankind in its present state has been around for a quarter of a million years, yet only the last 4,000 have been of any significance. So, what did we do for nearly 250,000 years? We huddled in caves and around small fires, fearful of the things that we didn't understand. It was more than explaining why the sun came up, it was the mystery of enormous birds with heads of men, and rocks that came to life. So we called them 'gods' and 'demons,' and begged them to spare us and prayed for salvation.

    In time, their numbers dwindled and our numbers rose. The world began to make more sense when there were less things to fear. Yet, the unexplained can never truly go away, as if the universe demands the absurd and impossible.

    Mankind must not go back to hiding in fear. No one else will protect us, we must stand up for ourselves.

    While the rest of mankind dwell in the light, we must stand in the darkness to combat it, contain it, and shield it from the eyes of the public, so that others may live in a sane, normal world.

    We secure. We contain. We protect.

While this massive creepy pasta would make an amazing roleplay it would probably scares the shit out of me. I may be a creeper and watch it go down though. After my excursion with the Slenderman last summer (i read everything slender related and watched all of marble hornets and spent the rest of my summer paranoid out of my mind) I want to stay out of being included in anything freaky. But but but! I would really love to follow this.

The plot will have you all as agents trying to collect an SCP artifact, one of my choosing to make things fun.

Distinguishing marks include: Tattoos, scars, beauty marks, etc.

Then you know what to expect.

Everyone will be playing a human agent sent to collect an SCP together.  You may not survive.

SCP Field Agent Application

Name: Halden Amsheim
Age: 31 (November 8, 1980)
Gender: Male
Basic Physical Description:
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Height: 182 centimeter
Weight: 72 kilograms
Body: Athletic
Hair color: Black
Eye color: Blue
Distinguishing Marks: A scar on his right arm, where he was bitten by a turtle.


Psychological Profile:
- Adventurous
- Calculated
- Confident
- Curious nature
- Paranoid
- Smokes cigarettes when he's nervous
Phobias: Cacti, Clowns, Food past its expiration date, Mobile phones with an antenna (without antenna is fine), Turtles.
Religious Beliefs: Atheist
Brief Personal History:
Halden is the descendant of an ancient German bloodline. He was born and raised in Beatrice, Nebraska. As a child, he was an adventurous, inquisitive boy, who wondered what made the world tick. When he was nine years old his mother disappeared under suspicious circumstances. Two locals swore they had seen an alien spaceship abduct her, but no evidence was found to support their claims.

In later life, his adventurous and inquisitive nature urged him to become a biologist, more specifically, an exobiologist, with a minor in microbiology. Due to his drive to leave no stone uncovered, he became an expert in his field and was contacted by Special Agent Fox Mulder from the FBI on more than one occasion.

Special Agent Mulder always told him that “The Truth is out there,” and though Halden presumed his mother to be dead, he had vain hopes that the X Files project could help him uncover the truth. Inspired by Special Agent Mulder, Halden joined the FBI, where he worked as a field agent on his own cases of the X Files.

Recently, Halden learned more details about the SCP Foundation. Throughout the years he had come into contact with their agents on several occasions, and even worked alongside them on one specific case, involving flying turtles, where he gave them detailed notes of his findings. The organization recovered the creatures and left without leaving a trace. At the time Halden hadn't known that it was the SCP Foundation who was involved, since they had led him to believe that they were a capture and retrieve team from the FBI. Intrigued by his recent discoveries, he decided to apply to the SCP Foundation for a job.


Previous Employment: FBI (X Files)
Experience with the Supernatural (if applicable):
Beatrice – Nebraska, January 2, 1990. Halden's mother was abducted by aliens. Apart from two eye-witnesses, no evidence was found to support this claim.
Beatrice – Nebraska, March 9, 1996. Halden witnessed a clown turning into a giant black cockroach, after which it fled into the sewer system. On closer inspection the clown outfit turned out to be a disguise.
Princeton University – New Jersey, September 23, 2000. The mobile phone from a friend became 'alive' while he was calling, and its 'liquid' antenna penetrated his friend's eardrum, killing him in the process.
Desert – Arizona, July 28, 2002. Halden witnessed a cactus vibrate in the desert, after which it shot poisonous needles in all directions. The vibrations stopped after the cactus lost all of its needles.
Beach – Abaco Island, December 1, 2005. While Halden was on vacation on a tropical island, he witnessed a group of turtles spurting wings, after which the carnivorous creatures hunted after men and animals alike.
Lincolnia – Maryland, February 18, 2010. While on an assignment, Halden witnessed four ethereal squirrels rape a pack of rats in an abandoned mansion. No offspring was produced.
Next of Kin:
Father: Henry (June 9, 1948 – Current)
Mother: Samantha (August 4, 1951 – Missing, presumed deceased)
Sister: Rachel (May 28, 1983 – Current)

I hope this is okay, I had to do quite a bit of research on SCP, their writing-style and how to create a psychological profile.

At least it should make for an interesting read. :)

Until today I was completely unfamiliar with this as well, but it's pretty straight forward. The cases encountered are entertaining to read about and I don't think it poses a lot of challenge for a seasoned role player to emulate the style of SCP Foundation.

I'm also hoping to see more people interested in this game. One thing I'm curious about though; what kind of SCP's make people paranoid? I only read about 5 of them so far, and though I thought them to be very well done, none were of the level that they made me look over my shoulder. :o

Approximately 4, though more may be included if I want to ramp up the difficulty/nightmare fuel.

FFFFFFFFFFFF SCP-173 is nightmare fuel alone. It's also the basis for the SCP freeware game at the moment. They are working on other cases as well, but I heard of this from my room mate. I'm going to give it a go reading some of the case files tonight, and make a profile because I've decided to be a manly woman. X3

O.o

I read about SCP-173 and I really don't see what's so scary about it... Just don't blink!

I also read about SCP-087 and though I found it originally scary, it merely became interesting as I kept reading. It reminded me of a similar story I once read where a boy and girl where locked up in a similar staircase and they had to keep going down in order to prevent an evil from destroying them. I believe they were locked up in a tessaract. Since their staircase was also desintegrating around them, and since their journey took them several days, 087 was kind of mild compared to all of that. Although they didn't have a faceless face hunting after them, or a crying girl at the bottom.

This will probably be quite the interesting game hehe, my agent might freak my co-workers out more than some of the SCP's we're going to encounter. :P

I'll read about the other two SCP's later today. ^_^

I also want to add how much I freaking love SCPs.  Some of them are absolutely brilliant, and most of them make me sit back and really think about it.  It's a brilliant fusion of cold, analytical horror and science thought games.

Also, SCP-914 is my personal favorite.  Throw something in, and see what comes out!  Just don't use it on people.  Or meat.  Or anything alive.   ...or was alive.

Name: Agent Brooks
Date: ██/██/20██
Total Items: One (1) cup of coffee in a ceramic mug

Input: One (1) cup of coffee in a ceramic mug
Setting: Very Fine
Output: A cylinder of roughly equal size to that of the mug. When Agent Brooks approached it, it fired a large arc of energy, hitting him in the face. Agent Brooks was thrown backwards against the far wall, but sustained only superficial injuries. The cylinder was later determined to be made of the same ceramic material as the mug and had no apparent means of generating the energy blast. Notably, Agent Brooks has reported an inability to sleep since the incident, and is beginning to suffer the effects of extended sleep deprivation.
Apparently it doesn't end up being the delicious coffee I envisioned... I suppose it's better to let D-class personnel test the coffee first before I take a sip of it myself.

Aye true, or a battery operated soldier toy. It might end up being an artificial intelligent mini soldier that wants to rule the world! ^_^

I also wonder what happens if we'd insert plants in it, especially carnivorous plants. That could be interesting... ;)
