Item #: SCP-PRNT

Object Class: Safe/Atelis1

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-PRNT is kept in Containment Cell#PRNT at Site-15 unplugged at all times. Paper and ink cartridges are provided for testing purposes within Containment Cell#PRNT. Requests for paper an are to be sent to SCP-PRNT's project manager Junior Researcher Fadeem. Tests may be initiated by Level 2 personnel. Tests and SCP-PRNT-1 instances are to be documented in Experiment Log #PRNT.

Description: SCP-PRNT is a standard ████ brand printer, with no discrepancies between non-anomalous printers of the same brand, aside from slight wear due to age. SCP-PRNT will not function when connected to a computer; will only function when disconnected. SCP-PRNT's anomalous capabilities are present when standard ink cartridges and paper are inserted and SCP-PRNT is plugged in and the "PRINT" button is pressed. SCP-PRNT will print a document2 ranging from unknown variables. SCP-PRNT has initially printed SCP-PRNT-1 instances consisting of historical events and personal experiences of James ██████3, all written in essay format. As of ██/██/████, SCP-PRNT-1 instances commonly consist of information pertaining to Foundation-format documents.4 SCP-PRNT has no indication of sentience, and it is unknown how SCP-PRNT is able to create SCP-PRNT-1 instances relating to Foundation information.

Researcher Note: One theory created is that SCP-PRNT creates SCP-PRNT-1 instances relating to the individuals using SCP-PRNT, or the setting of SCP-PRNT. Further research of PoI-PRNT shows his attendance at █████████ High School, which would explain the essay format and topic of previous SCP-PRNT-1 instances. He was probably trying to make a quick A on his essays.

Discovery: SCP-PRNT was discovered in possession of William ███████ after Foundation Web-Crawlers were alerted of a series of IRC messages relating to SCP-PRNT and it's location.5

Interview with William ███████ reveals he had no knowledge of SCP-PRNT's anomalous nature.

Interviewer: Junior Researcher Fadeem
Between: William ███████
Recorded: █/██/2016

Fadeem: Hello William, how are you today?
███████: Could be better. Also, why are we doing this again?
Fadeem: Of your possession of SCP-PRNT.
███████: SC-what? Oh, that printer.
███████: What do you want to know about it.
Fadeem: Where did you originally acquire SCP-PRNT?
███████: Found it near some trash cans at someone's house, forgot exactly where. I thought it was at great condition at the time, will all the cables with it. Didn't know why somebody would just throw it out.
