Item #: SCP-XXXX (The Void Key)

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be stored in a secure safe.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a key made of an unknown black material. The key fits into any door with a keyhole, regardless of the size of the lock. When a door is unlocked and opened using SCP-XXXX, instead of its normal location it opens into a seemingly endless black void, classified SCP-XXXX-1.

When the door is closed, time begins passing incredibly slowly within the room. All communication devices cease to function, although audio and video can still be recorded. Time dilation appears to correspond to 1 second inside = 1 hour outside.

If a person remains inside the room when the door is closed, they will begin hearing whispers, growling, and things moving through the darkness. The longer they remain in the room, the louder the sounds will become. Anything left in the room for more than 10 seconds after the door is closed vanishes completely, even after the door is opened.

The length of time a subject can remain in the room before vanishing appears to be linked to their mental state and psyche. Subjects with a history of ██████████ consistently vanish between 5-10 seconds, while others can remain for up to 20 seconds.
