Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: The complex surrounding SCP-XXXX is to be closed to the public on the sixth of the month for maintenance. A long-term surveillance drone has been deployed into SCP-XXXX-1 to monitor the situation, and elements of MTF Epsilon-9 ("Fire Eaters") will be deployed if a breach appears imminent.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the chapel of the Alamo Mission in San Antonio, Texas. Between 6:30 and 9 AM on the sixth of the month, any subject present in SCP-XXXX is transported to a dimension referred to as SCP-XXXX-1. This dimension matches historical records of the Alamo Mission shortly after the final assault, with the chapel roof missing and the doors to the barracks destroyed by cannon fire. Thousands of tally marks have been carved into the exterior walls of the chapel. The terrain outside the complex is flat with no landmarks within sight.

Currently, twenty-two humans inhabit SCP-XXXX-1. Seven are Texian soldiers matching records of defenders of the Alamo while the rest are Mexican soldiers or missing persons from the city of San Antonio. The leader has worked with Foundation personnel to maintain containment and has been designated SCP-XXXX-1-A.

SCP-XXXX-1-A has reported nightly attacks by humanoids, designated SCP-XXXX, and has described them as pale men with skin stretched taut over their bodies. These humanoids move quickly on four elongated legs and can scale the ten foot compound wall with ease. SCP-XXXX-2 instances are resistant to conventional weaponry, but are incinerated in seconds if set alight. This process leaves no remains except ash, precluding an autopsy.

The supplies stored in SCP-XXXX-1 are restocked every morning, including black powder and oil. The inhabitants use these supplies to set traps baited with livestock or horses. This tactic is effective, but SCP-XXXX-1-A has noticed an upward trend in SCP-XXXX-2 numbers; recent attacks consist of seven or eight instances at once. SCP-XXXX-1-A estimates that the supplies in the complex can reliably defeat nine instances. Action may be necessary if this trend continues.

SCP-XXXX came to the Foundation's attention in 1982 after multiple transients went missing within an hours walk of the mission. A Class-D sent into SCP-XXXX-1 returned two hours later with a copy of the Bible and a note from SCP-XXXX-1-A. Currently, SCP-XXXX-1-A is cooperating with the Foundation to combat SCP-XXXX-2 and prevent the inhabitants of SCP-XXXX-1 from leaving.
