"Life is Pain" Painkiller now in stock.

Fighting Monsters and Language since 2016.

2 Brief encounters with the supernatural, 2 severed heads and 4 critical success on difficult throws and the whole gang has leaved for Morocco, dodging the entire adventure and thereby triggering an end of the world scenario.

Because that is something that happens. If horror comes knocking, someone has a credit card and easy access to an airport, that is one way to dodge cosmic horror.

Anyone up to write that story?

I ran a heavenly home-brewed "Call of Cthulhu" on Sunday (One-shot and my first time playing anything other than ether "Full Home-Brew (Rules? What are rules?)" or "ADnD [V2, the OLD stuff]").

Made the monsters myself and set the game on a time limit.

My players were… surprisingly susceptible to my methods. They would avoid my monsters and even the environment if it got to spooky.

They were dragged into a plot of the "Hoffmann Stifftung" (Hoffnung = Hope, Stifftung = Foundation) that broke protocol by trying to optimize and weaponize Lovecraftian horror.

One player died in an epic car crash, one lost his arm and the guy playing the Irish farmer got through it without taking damage from any monster (only time he took damage was when car-crash guy lost his sanity to the point where he started to shoot his companions with a semi-automatic-pistol).

In the end the 2 surviving characters were stuck in an underground bunker and got (more or less willingly) mind bleached. They don't remember anything, but are stuck with a dead, liquefied doctor in an underground bunker while above ground the horror just broke free and is currently fighting its way out of the surrounded city.

All in all, early Sunday morning well spent (5 hours in total). Everyone had fun and i was task to make another adventure for next week.

So, much to [Cosmic Horror (Very much speakable)].

thank you for your answer, I just want to let you know that the date 1912 is in the report and it seems you haven't seen it…

The object was recovered by the SCP Foundation during an archaeological excavation in Siberia in 1912 in an extremely remote area of that country.

Thank you for the proposal of "shadow" but I am obliged to refuse it. It's nothing against you but just a desire to get away with it alone, but thank you very much for your suggestion.

edit : it seems you mixed a lot of things together, it doesn't matter.

edit *2: I realized that after the fact, I slipped a date error. The date of 1950 was the old date of the assault but I had changed it to 1970.

Just making my way through the appendixes. Most things i found so fare are spelling mistakes.

Than i reached appendix B.

In there you say base 028 was first opened in 1960. But according to the report the thing closed down after a raid in 1950. Than you mention its shutdown in 1970.

In 1970 at midnight

Without a date the "at midnight" dose not fit."Surprise midnight assault" would fit better, but is still not ideal.

increased in 1986 before ending at 2430 at 5:14 a.m.

do you mean increased to? When you say "in 1986" it sounds like there were victims dying from the encounter in the year 1986. (Could be confused for "sequelae" (apparently that is a word) i would have called it "delayed-damage" if i had translated the German word i wished to use ("Folgeschäden") by its components)

massacre

is one sided. It therefor dose not seem appropriate here (both sides lose).

58 years ago

Was the mask found in 1912? I think that should be in the report.

??? #1

"Person 1" would fit better, i believe. Or is there a possibility that they are not persons? If so it should be made clear beforehand. Also we even have there names, so no placeholders necessary.

Appendix C

  • 4 doors -> one key
  • 8 guards no one looks doors 2, 3 and 4 after they see suspicious activity at door 1
  • It takes 5 hours to unlock a cell (no back-ports, master-keys or a general key)

I also read Appendix D.


There are some spelling mistakes i have not mentioned here, but i think i might compile them for you in another "Shadow" or something of that caliber.

This strikes me as intensely propagandistic, dishonest, and deeply hypocritical for the Insurgency to do.

So obviously, I love it.


The world must be in a state of constant, ceaseless, revolution. If mankind settles, we shall be forgotten in due time, like so much clay in the Burgess shale, static preservation of the long-dead. Order is Tyranny, we are Revolution.

thanks for your answer.

concerning the term "reversing situation" it was of course not a reference to manipulation of time but rather to the fact that it alone is capable of changing the outcome of a battle (within a certain limit).
I have an idea about the fact that the foundation hasn't attacked yet, I'll update it right away.


J'ai deux nouvelles, une mauvaise et une bonne
La mauvaise nouvelle c'est que je ne peux pas forcer les gens à m'accepter ou à m'aimer

according to Shanalick

This means that she makes the claim. Perhaps the words "according to" are not the optimal once. Sadly i don't know what else you could have meant.

The Foundation had over 60 years to prep, specialists unaffected by hallucinations, several automated traps and the once sacrificed hundreds of people to contain a stationary rock. Once they know the anomaly needs a host to do anything they will use that information. Since the masks must have changed hosts a lot over that time we can assume that they have that information. By now they have the mask. Please do not underestimate the Foundation. Ether the incident must be far more recent or there must be another reason why they have not managed to get the mask by now.

reversing situations

Since when dose the thing manipulate time? Do you mean that it can "turn the tide of battle" or something in that direction?

Nothing

So whether a subject is dead or alive dose not matter? Since the mask kills it host i had thought there was a necessity to kill. If it is just an unfortunate side effect i think it could be treatable. Especially with 60+ years to figure that part out.

I'll go back and check out the updates.


Fighting Monsters and Language since 2016.

hey, I'm reviewing some of the passages, but I'd like to answer some of your questions.

tends to disintegrate to the point of making her unable to use her abnormal abilities again

self-destruct?
(me from the end again, question still valid)

we can consider it like that, the body that serves as shanalick's host disintegrates after each use of hallucinations.

four steel airlocks […] Each airlock entrance is monitored by four security personnel recording and monitoring all entries and exits into the cell

16 people to monitor something that maybe happens once every few months?

let's say that it's more to protect shanalick than to protect oneself, we're still talking about a very powerful object/entity capable of reversing situations. However, I have reduced the number of guards to two

The range of action of hallucinations/illusions varies according to Shanalick and the threat faced, as does their lethality.

Why do we need Shanalick's oppinion on this? Cant we just make that observation via a third party?

???, i don't understand. I never said that.

raid by the SCP Foundation on site 028.

They know where it is, what keeps them from getting the mask back? The foundation is not above raiding a memorial site if it means they get an anomaly out of it. They dont stop observation on places like that for at least 5 years after the last anomaly was removed from the area.

Maybe but let's think for a moment, you've just been beaten up by an entity that destroyed a large part of your raid. It has affected a large number of people psychologically, whether they are in high places or not, but you learn that the entity often goes to the accident site. Are you really going to risk another bloodbath by wanting to recover an entity?
personally, I don't think so, at least not right away.

strongly slow down the decomposition of the corpse thus allowing him to keep the same body for a long time.

What happens when the body is kept alive with medical equipment?

Nothing

This necessarily leads to an increased decomposition of Shanalick's body.

Is she affected by here own hallucinations? That was not mentioned before.

Nope

concerning chemical analysis this is quite normal, the mask is well before our current civilization. However, I made a mistake myself by quoting a material for the mask, either the mask seems to be made of iron but it is a completely different unknown material.

For the after-effects of hallucinations, we talk more about things similar to slight auditory or visual hallucinations, nothing mean. But this can sometimes be very disturbing to the person who can hear whispering in their ears or sometimes see shadows.


What do you think of the status report? I fixed a lot of things you showed. I hope you'll like reading the appendixes


J'ai deux nouvelles, une mauvaise et une bonne
La mauvaise nouvelle c'est que je ne peux pas forcer les gens à m'accepter ou à m'aimer
La bonne nouvelle c'est que j'en ai rien à foutre

Initial Impressions

I have not read the appendixes yet

the Guardian Forgotten

"Forgotten Guardian"

Mask from an old time

this ether needs to be specified (1724, 200 BC, predating the dinosaurs) or changed into "of unknown origin"
(me from the end of the report here, both suggested solutions are wrong, i now think just mask is enough)

tends to disintegrate to the point of making her unable to use her abnormal abilities again

self-destruct?
(me from the end again, question still valid)

numerous surveillance cameras

should be a number

four steel airlocks […] Each airlock entrance is monitored by four security personnel recording and monitoring all entries and exits into the cell

16 people to monitor something that maybe happens once every few months?

the door and walls are lined with talismans made by Shanalick and designed to keep her in her cell.

Is this a "we trust the monster to contain itself" or a "We let the magic thing make and keep potentially dangerous artifacts"? Both is bad.

Visits are <accepted> but must be monitored.

Why?

if the entity is to be transported urgently to a war zone, she must be sedated before any transport. During transport, a harness specially created using Dr. Maestro Hank's knowledge in the occult environment must be attached to the entity and six guards (sometimes accompanied by Dr. Maestro Hank) must be present during transport.
Shanalick is allowed, once every two months, to visit the former base 028 which has been converted as a memorial for former Chaos Insurgency members who were victims of the "Red Sea" accident, she must be accompanied by Dr. Maestro Hank and two armed guards.

  • If sedated we need 7 guards, why is this visit Ok with just 3?
  • Places that are frequented by anomalies usually attract other GOIs, why has this site not been blown up?

hallucinations are far too powerful, the victim may have severe sequelae that make him or her almost unfit for duty

Hallucinations of any kind, means that that person is no longer fit for duty, except if there job is to sit around and do nothing.
Also "sequelae". What is it?

has not yet been dated to date

has as of yet not been dated

despite chemical analyses

If you are refer to "Carbon Dating", it is a physics analysis, the limit on carbon dating is 50000 years, so your mask would predate this
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron#Development_of_iron_metallurgy according to this you just kicked humanity out of the pool of possible creators.

person (usually a woman) between

person (usually a woman) is between

strongly slow down the decomposition of the corpse thus allowing him to keep the same body for a long time.

What happens when the body is kept alive with medical equipment? My first though when i read it was "pacemakers could really get that thing out of left field (out of left field = phrase meaning to 'catch someone off guard')"

The range of action of hallucinations/illusions varies according to Shanalick and the threat faced, as does their lethality.

Why do we need Shanalick's opinion on this? Cant we just make that observation via a third party?

This necessarily leads to an increased decomposition of Shanalick's body.

Is she affected by here own hallucinations? That was not mentioned before.

be the highest and most dangerous to date,

that is currently known to the insurgency

In addition, sudden emotional changes suggest that Shanalick's abilities may have a memetic effect.

If it can spreed from person to person it is memetic. This dose not seem to be the case here.

classify it as Euclid

I have seen nothing in this report that suggest the mask can not be put in a warehouse and left unobserved indefinitely. The mask seems unable to act without a host, putting it firmly in the "Safe" category.

They know where it is, what keeps them from getting the mask back? The foundation is not above raiding a memorial site if it means they get an anomaly out of it. They don't stop observation on places like that for at least 5 years after the last anomaly was removed from the area.
