Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in an opaque case kept in Site-164's Fragile Anomalous Objects storage sector. Site-113's Reality-Bending Inanimate Objects containment unit, in a chamber in the effective range of no less than two Scranton Reality Anchors and at least 7 meters away from other SCP objects.

Realistically corrupt spaces created by Rondnoir-Arcanum Events are to be sealed inside a Safe-class storage chamber and are not to be tested on.

Testing with SCP-XXXX has been suspended indefinitely.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a pair of reading glasses with a brass frame and 1.1 cm thick glass lenses. If used as typical prescription glasses, SCP-XXXX will bestow an anomalous level of visual clarity upon the user during use; subjects using SCP-XXXX have been found to have perfect vision extending to a range of approximately 3 km, regardless of the user's current optical health conditions1.

If used to read2 certain parts of an article3, however, SCP-XXXX will then activate its primary anomalous effect, which triggers a Rondnoir event.

Rondnoir events are categorized into three four groups:

  • Rondnoir-Falchion Event: Rondnoir-Falchion events are characterized by the main character4, hereafter referred to as SCP-XXXX-1, of the article manifesting itself in the sapient being nearest to SCP-XXXX. If no such being exists within a 1km radius of SCP-XXXX, a Rondnoir-Falchion event will not occur.

Once an SCP-XXXX-1 instance manifests within a subject, that subject will immediately begin to exhibit the characteristics that the SCP-XXXX-1 instance had in the article. This state will persist until SCP-XXXX breaks visual contact with the page in which the SCP-XXXX-1 instance was introduced, the possessed subject is killed, or a possessed subject travels more than 1 kilometre away from SCP-XXXX.

The effects of a Rondnoir-Falchion event are gradual, first changing the subject on a mental level to match that of the SCP-XXXX-1 instance, overwriting memories, altering behaviour and thought processes of the subject until they are identical, both subconsciously and psychosomatically. This phase finishes approximately 20 minutes after initial possession. 25 minutes after possession, the subject will begin to change on a physical level, with their appearance changing to match that of the SCP-XXXX-1 instance. This has been known to affect hair colour, skin colour, height, weight, birthmarks and scars (if any), body parts associated with gender, such as genitalia, along with numerous other bodily aspects. This phase typically ends 1 hour and 30 minutes post-possession.

Individuals possessed by SCP-XXXX-1 instances generally exhibit extreme nausea after SCP-XXXX-1 leaves their bodies, and always have no recollection of what happened to them during the event. While mental effects dissipate immediately after SCP-XXXX-1 leaves its host body, it should be noted that physical changes are irreversible and will persist even in the absence of the SCP-XXXX-1 instance.

Rondnoir-Falchion events are known to occur when the main character(s) in the article is first introduced5. If SCP-XXXX-1 are introduced at different points in the story, all SCP-XXXX-1 instances, even those introduced at later times, will manifest themselves the first time an SCP-XXXX-1 is introduced.

  • Rondnoir-Myosotis Event: Rondnoir-Myosotis events are characterized by the instantaneous materialization of a small paper note near the currently read article that can read a variety of different messages, known as instances of SCP-XXXX-2. It should be noted that instances of SCP-XXXX-2 do not possess any anomalous effects themselves, but may contain infohazardous content. A list of known messages can be found below.

Along with SCP-XXXX-2A came a document written wholly in SCP-3027, SCP-XXXX-2B. Translation is currently ongoing, but so far has been found to be a User Manual detailing the general functions of SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX-2E also contains maintenance instructions, a lengthy chapter on "product safety" and a list of other products sold by VOX Co. Although SCP-XXXX-2E is written in SCP-3027, its contents have not been observed to change since acquisition. A complete, translated copy of SCP-XXXX-2E will be made available to all staff assigned to SCP-XXXX when translation is complete.

Rondnoir-Myosotis events were first thought to occur when an article was read from beginning to end using SCP-XXXX. This was later found to be only partially true, as Rondnoir-Myosotis events were actually Rondnoir-Anathema events failing to manifest.

  • Rondnoir-Anathema Event: Rondnoir-Anathema events are characterized by the instantaneous teleportation of SCP-XXXX and all sapient beings in a 2m radius of SCP-XXXX to an SCP-XXXX-3 instance. SCP-XXXX-3 instances are separate, 'hyper-real' realities created by SCP-XXXX.

All SCP-XXXX-3 instances share these characteristics in common:

  • The instance will always resemble the universe the article SCP-XXXX had read about was set in. This encompasses all aspects of that article; The environment will perfectly match as much as is described in the article. If an article is unclear about the specifications of an area, the instance will create its own specifications, generating building heights, wildlife, and populations to as close as would make sense in the article. If an article fails to mention the appearance of an area within its universe, the area then defaults to a lake, sea or other body of water, if in a natural environment, a decrepit cul-de-sac, mall or business district if within an urban environment and a simple void with stars and planets if in outer space.

Though SCP-XXXX-3 instances are perfect recreations of the worlds SCP-XXXX has read about in articles, it should be noted that there are never any characters with any plot significance in that article that appear in its respective SCP-XXXX-3 instance.

  • All SCP-XXXX-3 instances have incredibly high Hume levels, ranging from 921.53hm/sq. m. - 3277.04hm/sq. m.
  • Nothing within an SCP-XXXX-3 instance can be physically interacted with. People and animals will walk directly through subjects within the instance, who can also walk directly through buildings and mountains, and over gaps, such as canyons or descending stairs, as if the entirety of the instance were on a level floor that cannot be ascended or descended.

Rondnoir-Anathema Events occur when SCP-XXXX has read an article containing text from the first page of an article containing text, to the last page of an article containing text7.

SCP-XXXX requires a short period of time after finishing an article to cause a Rondnoir-Anathema Event, taking anywhere from 3 minutes to 17 minutes, with the average being 5 minutes.

Approximately 2 minutes before a Rondnoir-Anathema Event, SCP-XXXX appears to 'overheat', increasing its exterior temperature to over 120℃ in a matter of seconds, then immediately cooling down after teleportation to an SCP-XXXX-3 instance. This process repeats when returning from an SCP-XXXX-3 instance. This process is also known to cause significant physical damage to SCP-XXXX, and unnecessarily triggering this Event is inadvisable.

Approximately 3 hours after a Rondnoir-Anathema Event occurs, all subjects transported to an SCP-XXXX-3 instance are returned to baseline reality, with no memory of their time inside the instance.

UPDATE 2/2/2018: Due to the events of Incident Log 1/28/2018|XXXX, a new Rondnoir Event has been categorized and documented below. This is the only Rondnoir event that is not triggered by reading an article.

Rondnoir-Arcanum Event: Rondnoir-Arcanum Events are characterized by multiple localized low-effect CK-Class Reality Restructuring Scenarios occurring in the general vicinity of SCP-XXXX. The area affected by a Rondnoir-Arcanum Event is transformed into a realistically corrupt space8, which cannot be entered without dematerializing prior to exit from the area.

The one constant of an area affected by a Rondnoir-Arcanum Event is that SCP-XXXX will always stay where it was at the conception of the Event, unless physically acted upon by a subject entering from outside of the Event.

It is currently unknown why or how Rondnoir-Arcanum Events occur. It is theorized that they occur primarily from the great amount of physical damage SCP-XXXX has undergone, causing SCP-XXXX to "malfunction" and cause a Rondnoir-Arcanum Event.

Realistically corrupt spaces cannot be recovered or ameliorated after a Rondnoir-Arcanum Event, even with the use of multiple reality-restabilizing technologies (See Experiment Log XXXX-11). The manifestation of a Rondnoir-Arcanum Event, however, can be nullified entirely with the use of multiple Scranton Reality Anchors9 (See updated containment procedures).
