Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Description: SCP-XXXX refers to an area in which local reality is highly unstable. SCP-XXXX is located within SCP-XXXX-1; a large ruins in the Chinese province of Hebei. SCP-XXXX is roughly spherical, with an average radius of 2.7 kilometres. SCP-XXXX-1 is located in a large valley close to the Eight Gorges of Taihang. Its construction style bears many resemblances to late Daevite1 colonial architecture and is estimated to have housed over 30,000 Daevite civilians and soldiers alongside a sizeable but unknown number of slaves. SCP-XXXX-1 has suffered extensive damage due to flooding, age and geometric reconfiguration.

SCP-XXXX renders exploration of SCP-XXXX-1 difficult. While observers outside of SCP-XXXX's range can safely view SCP-XXXX-1, individuals who enter the region are randomly subject to disorientation, teleportation, spatial warping, bodily inversion, disappearance, transformation into base elements and/or spontaneous combustion, among other effects. Automated drones suffer progressive internal damage upon entering SCP-XXXX and will rapidly lose functionality.

Excavation carried out beneath SCP-XXXX-1 has uncovered a large, irregular labyrinth constructed under the city, extending several hundred metres underground. The upper levels of this labyrinth are mostly sewers and body pits. Examination of both human and Daevite corpses found near the outskirts of the complex - beyond the reach of SCP-XXXX - has dated the city's habitation back to the late 1800s, apparently contradicting the fact that the Daeva Empire was destroyed in the early 13th century. The lower levels are closer to the centre of SCP-XXXX and are therefore currently inaccessible.
