[SCP is not a game or RP site]
The SCP Foundation is a creative writing website centered around pseudo-realistic supernatural reports. The site allows members to author entries in form of reports and documents focusing on entities referred to as SCPs, which are objects whose existence would be considered scientific anomalies and often pose a significant hazard to human health or society.
Many sources indicate that the SCP series started with a thread containing containing information regarding SCP-173 appeared on /x/ in 2007. The SCP-Wiki was founded in 2008 on an Editthis Wiki, and numerous similar articles were added to the database. The wiki later moved to Wikidot due to content and moderation restrictions. The database currently holds over 1000 entries of fictional anomalous objects. Anyone accepted to the site is capable of creating an SCP. However, the site’s community has a very strict set of standards, and deletes most articles that do not comply to the expectations of tone and quality.
In-universe, the SCP Foundation is an organization with a murky past. Run by 13 O5 commands, the Foundation has numerous doctors, researchers, and agents aiming to understand and catalog anomalous objects. D-Class personnel, recruited from death row inmates, are used for human testing in almost every aspect. The Foundation occasionally runs into other groups, such as the Global Occult Coalition and the Church of the Broken God. The Foundation collects and protects the SCPs from getting into the hands of others.
These objects are classified into three main categories of safety: Safe, for understood objects which can be left alone with no major consequences; Euclid, for not well-understood objects which may cause containment breaches if not actively watched; and Keter, for dangerous objects that will break containment and do harm unless they are surveyed 24/7, and may cause an end-of-the-world scenario. The articles then go on to describe the containment procedures for the objects, and then the objects themselves. Several SCPs have addendum such as audio-logs, interview transcripts, test logs, and several other means of expanding on the story and fear-factors of the objects.
SCP-173 was the first SCP object written and served as the inspiration for the project. SCP-173 is described to be a statue-like entity that cannot move while in direct eyesight, and will kill by breaking the neck of a victim if not observed. Similarities have been noted between the Weeping Angels and SCP-173, but research indicates that their origins are completely separate, and that SCP-173 was created nearly a year before the Doctor Who episode Blink aired. The original sculpture which the SCP was based upon was created by Japanese artist Izumi Kato. SCP-173 is the first SCP to be written, and the original author did not expect it to expand to the Foundation today.
SCP-682 is a sentient, indestructible and highly adaptive reptilian creature that the Foundation repeatedly try to destroy. SCP-682, accompanied with a picture dating back to a news article in 2006, is one of the most popular SCPs on the wiki. SCP-682 is resistant to almost any attempt to destroy him, and the Foundation test logs indicate that he grows immune to every attempt.
SCP-231-7 is described as a young girl rescued from a “Sex Cult” and impregnated with an unknown entity. The only way of suppressing the birth of the entity is through Procedure-110 Montauk, which is never described in detail, but heavily implied to involve some sort of sexual torture. The entry is famous for its heavy use of censorship regarding the girl, the procedure, and the effects of past failures with other objects of similar properties. Due to its employment of psychological fear, it remains one of the most popular SCPs on the site.
In addition, the site contains several derivative varieties of SCPs, including joke SCPs and decommissioned SCPs. The SCP Foundation website is also host to a variety of Foundation Tales based around the objects it contains. Foundation Tales are stories based on elements within the Foundation universe.
The large amount of tales and interviews sparked many Youtubers to create mockumentaries and video logs of SCP reports.
Readings of SCP reports and tales are also common.
Several games based on SCPs are under production, such as Area-34 or SCP-682. One of the most popular games is SCP: Containment Breach, developed by Regalis. The game revolves around a containment breach of SCP-173, and involves SCP-106 and SCP-914 among others. Another game, featuring the exploration of SCP-087, lets the player explore the seemingly endless stairs of SCP-087. Neither of these games are produced by or affiliated with the Wiki, but many members have shown support for their development.
