Sulphuric_Glue's Sandbox

Item #: SCP-3XXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-3XXX is to be contained in a thick bulletproof glass container at Site-20. The container must have vents to ensure a flow of fresh air. SCP-3XXX is to be in darkness from 21:00 to 07:00.
Guards are authorised to use lethal force to keep SCP-3XXX-1 within the container in the event of a breach of SCP-3XXX's container.

Description: SCP-3XXX is a miniature landscape, 6 metres long, 3.5 metres wide and 1.5 metres deep, which is populated by miniature flora and fauna as well as SCP-3XXX-1. The landscape of SCP-3XXX is made up of multiple layers, with soil at the top and progressively harder layers of rock beneath.

SCP-3XXX-1 are miniature humans, approximately 2.5 cm tall. Individually, they have a much lower IQ than humans, but collectives can advance at an extremely fast rate. They give birth 2-3 days after conception and their lifespan is approximately 2 weeks. Collectives of SCP-3XXX-1 are generally aggressive towards each other.

SCP-3XXX will be gradually populated and developed over many months by SCP-3XXX-1 until two or more SCP-3XXX-1 collectives engage in a large-scale conflict which wipes out the entire SCP-3XXX-1 population. SCP-3XXX will then change its landscape and a new SCP-3XXX-1 population will appear after 2-3 days. The average cycle takes 6 months, with the shortest on record being 2 months (see "Hostile Test").

SCP-3XXX was contained in 1998 after the owner of a large board game table in ███████, England noticed that the landscape was changing itself and the models were moving and talking. The owner was administered Class-A amnestics.

Addendum SCP-3XXX-1: SCP-3XXX-1 will often mistake staff (which they perceive to be extremely large) as deities and form religions around them. SCP-3XXX-1 collectives who are dedicated to different deities are invariably hostile to each other.

Note from Dr Marlowe: Foundation staff are NOT permitted to portray themselves to SCP-3XXX-1 as deities, especially Dr Fulton, who is forbidden from bringing any costume into Foundation grounds regardless of how convincing his reason is.

Note #2 from Dr Marlowe: Foundation staff are NOT permitted to bet on which SCP-3XXX-1 community they think will "win". Gambling goes against Foundation regulations, and no community has ever been observed "winning" anyway.
