Well, this is my Sandbox. nothing here yet, I hope it's not against the rules to save this now? I guess not if its username based.

Currently, I have two ideas; one is already done in some ways (SCP-1248) though I believe my idea could be developed more so and thus made different (although the two SCPs could have a link? I'll have to reach out to the author of SCP-1248 for that). The other is the one I think I'm going to write first.

So, a sandstone structure is discovered in the West Egyptian Sahara, approximately 50 kilometres South West of the Dakhla Oasis. The statue is discovered in 5 pieces - 2 humanoids legs, approximately 10 metres tall, albeit both are broken at the knees, 1 torso connected to a right arm, approximately 10 metres long with the arm extended outwards, 1 left arm, broken from the torso and corroded, and 1 head, approximately 4 metres long and planted in the ground facing North.

Although the statue appears to be non-anomalous on inspection with external scanning equipment (such as Infrared and UV scans, tbc), civilians and Foundation personnel who have made physical contact with the statue's parts, especially the head, have elicited a measurable response. For example, the statue was brought to the attention of the Foundation when a loud droning noise was heard by an agent in the nearby town of the Dakhla Oasis. Foundation Personnel were deployed from Luxor to the origin point of the noise; however, members of the Egyptian military had already come across the statue independently. Furthermore, the recovery team observed a member of the military unit making contact with the statue's head, wherein the head's eyes and mouth opened, shining bright white light outwards, and emitting the droning sound heard earlier.

Both the recovery team and the Egyptian military unit attempted to remove contact between the member and the head, but within 20 seconds the member's skin had turned sand coloured and proceeded to collapse into dust. The eyes and mouth of the head then closed.

After more observations, it is discovered that the head is covered in Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. Foundation Translators are brought in, and successfully translate some of the writings. Their content includes;

  • Rhames (repeated numerous times across the 'crown' on the head of the statue)
  • Despair (present on the torso)
