SCP-XXXX-A, recorded from a dreaming D-class research subject.


Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is currently uncontained, and has a high probability of escalating into a Class-1 Veil Breakdown scenario due to its random and widespread nature. Should such a scenario occur, Mobile Task Force Gamma-5 ("Red Herrings") will initiate Protocol AEGIS OF MINERVA, involving media suppression and dispersion of LONDON-class compound amnestics.1

Research and containment teams for SCP-XXXX have been consolidated into Research Task Force 14-Mercury, and a dedicated research office has been assigned at Site-76. Any personnel who encounter SCP-XXXX are asked to report their experiences to the RTF immediately. As the phenomenon occurs randomly, personnel who are exposed will not be subject to discipline or investigation, though interviews may be requested in order to clarify reports.

Research Objectives: Determine source of anomaly; determine method of reducing or eliminating public exposure; study long-term effects and reassess threat level; monitor anomaly via oneironautic agents.

An Omicron-Rho agent attempting to enter SCP-XXXX while in a controlled-lucidity dream state.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a complex oneiric construct which manifests from SCP-XXXX-A, an anomalous high-amplitude delta wave pattern. SCP-XXXX-A occurs at random during REM sleep; no pattern has been identified in affected subjects, though attempts to artificially induce the dream state have been successful with trained oneironautic agents.

Descriptions of SCP-XXXX have been generally consistent between research subjects, suggesting that the phenomenon exists independently of individual perceptions. The construct is invariably described as the interior of a shopping mall, with a vast complex of stores, entertainment venues and other consumer attractions. Although populated by many other people, most subjects describe the crowds as incongruously small compared to the immense size of the structure.2


Addendum XXXX.1 - Selected Reports


Note from the HRC: Since we started looking into this phenomenon, we've collected dozens of accounts from various subjects. As a supplement to the description, I've attached some of the reports that were more detailed or relevant to our research. Feel free to contact me if you feel like reading the full list.

Task Force Mission Transcript

Date: 08.14.2019
Subject: SCP-XXXX

Exploration Team: MTF Omicron-Rho "The Dream Team"

  • ο-ρ "Morpheus" - Team Lead
  • ο-ρ "Bluepill"

Archivist Note: Much of this log was recorded using the experimental Wilson-Schulman 'thought transcription' (mWSCT) system, and has been edited for maximum readability. Original files are available on request.


Recording begins. All members of the task force are unconscious, and SCP-XXXX-A is being induced and stabilized. The mWSCT activates as they enter a shared lucid dream and manifest within SCP-XXXX.
