rating: 0+x

アイテム番号: SCP-4846

オブジェクトクラス: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-4846 instances are to be organized into climate-controlled containers and collectively stored in a standard hermetic vault. Each instance is to be professionally maintained by a researcher with field experience in paleontology. Access permissions for SCP-4846 may be waived on request by personnel with at least Level 2 security clearance; recurrent access may be granted should SCP-4846 instances respond well to designated personnel.
特別収容プロトコル: SCP-4846実体達は環境制御式コンテナ内に整理され、標準的な密閉容器内に纏めて保管されます。各実体は、古生物学の実地調査経験を有する1名の研究員によって専門的にメンテナンスされなければなりません。SCP-4846への接触許可は、レベル2以上のセキュリティクリアランスを有する職員により却下される場合があります。SCP-4846実体が指定された職員に対し好反応を示した場合は、継続的な接触が承認されます。

A designated fund is to be maintained by the research team overseeing the acquisition of new SCP-4846 instances. The fund is to be budgeted in accordance with Foundation fiscal policy to fulfill any SCP-4846-related restoration projects. When seeking and establishing caretakers or proprietors for locations pertaining to SCP-4846 manifestations, the SCP-4846 research team is to maintain a list of retired Foundation personnel who are amenable to settling in remote areas, and communicate with them as necessary.

Donations to high-profile charities involving wildlife preservation are to be closely monitored. Possible owners of uncontained instances of SCP-4846 are to be identified and if prudent, investigated.

Description: SCP-4846 refers to a collection of anomalous fossils (see log excerpt below), with each instance possessing unique autonomous movement and interactive capabilities. When within the presence of unfamiliar individuals, SCP-4846 instances typically remain stationary and appear non-anomalous. SCP-4846 that are accompanied by stone bases are capable of removing themselves from said stone, and will return to the stone bases when verbally prompted.
説明: SCP-4846は異常な化石コレクション(下記ログ抄録を参照)に与えられた呼称であり、各実体が固有の自律運動能力と意思疎通能力を有しています。面識のない人物と遭遇した際、SCP-4846実体は概して静止状態を保ち、非異常物であるかのように振る舞います。石中に包蔵されたSCP-4846実体は、石から出ることが可能であり、口頭で促されると石中に戻ります。

SCP-4846 individuals are typically discovered at or near archaeologically or historically significant landmarks, after an act of charity is performed, to the benefit of the location or individuals who staff organizations in the area. Of note, most Foundation-witnessed SCP-4846 manifestations have occurred in national parks. Upon manifestation, instances of SCP-4846 are accompanied by a messily scrawled handwritten note. Said notes consistently follows an internalized format, as seen below:

You found fossil friend #4!

Jim here loves to hang out with friends! He also loves █████████ ████'█, which is a great place to have a drink and just kick back with your best buds. I would know, I made it a weekly tradition back in my crazier years!

Good luck on your quest to explore the past! Your next friend can be found at [coordinates provided, varies between notes].


このジム君は、友達と一緒にいるのが大好きなのさ!それに、█████████ ████'█も大好き!相棒と一緒に一杯やりながら寛げる素敵なところなんだよ。私だってその場所を知っていれば、イカした日々に戻るのを毎週の習慣にしてただろうになぁ。


SCP-4846 first came to Foundation attention following the reported disappearance of a large cache of fossil specimens from the █████ Museum. Foundation field agents dispatched to investigate the apparent theft were informed that the purchase had been arranged with a Mr. Elijah ███ (tentatively designated PoI-4846), who had offered his personal collection to the museum for an unusually low price. The alleged theft was stated to have occurred after Mr. ███ had a disagreement with the museum curators involving placement of the fossils; of note, the missing fossils appeared to have been broken out from the inside of the glass display cases they were stored in.

Foundation personnel were sent to examine the museum, and discovered a trail of debris that led to a nearby archaeological dig site that was currently in process to be demolished and urbanized. Approximately 24 hours after the Foundation secured the location for further investigation, thereby halting the demolition, the first recorded instance of SCP-4846 manifested and was contained.

In the following years, many additional SCP-4846 instances were discovered by Foundation personnel, in various locations believed to hold personal significance to PoI-4846. A partial excerpt of the recorded instances of particular interest are as follows:


█████博物館に寄付された当初の、不活性標本状態のSCP-4846-4実体。(Instance SCP-4846-4 in its inert specimen form at time of initial donation to the █████ Museum.)

Instance #: 4 "Jim"

Discovery Location: █████████ ████'█, Saint Louis, Missouri. Handwritten note (as provided above) indicates that PoI-4846 once visited this bar weekly with close friends.

Instance Description: A miniature Tanystropheus (large land-dwelling reptile with an extremely long neck) skeleton. Instance measures approximately 2 meters long, and is capable of independent locomotion when a group of at least 3 well-acquainted individuals are seated within close proximity of the instance. The skeleton will perform simple party entertainment when prompted, including balancing assorted drinkware on its back, making small towers of sundries it is presented with, and performing a rudimentary tap dance if placed on a tabletop.

Notes - Instance emerged from wall and approached Foundation agents during an after-hours discussion between said agents and the proprietor of the establishment, who had previously expressed concern regarding the longevity of the bar. Foundation personnel provided the owner with a substantial anonymous donation towards keeping the bar running, as well as a list of contacts for live entertainment artists interested in performing at the location.

実体番号: 4 “ジム”

発見場所: ミズーリ州セントルイス市█████████ ████'█。(上述の)手書きメモは、PoI-4846がかつて親友と毎週のように当該バーに入店していたことを示す。

実体の概要: タニストロフェウス(極めて長い首を持つ大型の陸生爬虫類)のミニチュア骨格標本。実体は体長およそ2メートルで、良く見知った人物が3名以上いる集団が実体の付近に座っている時に独立して運動する能力を有する。当該骨格標本は周囲の鼓吹に応じ、各種の酒用容器を背中に積んでバランスを取る、自身に贈られた品々でタワーを作る、テーブルの上に載せられると初歩的なタップダンスを踊るといった、単純な宴会芸を披露する。

付記: 実体は財団エージェント達が業務時間外に議論を交わしている最中、壁から出現し、当該エージェントならびに件のバーの経営者に近づいた。経営者はかねてよりバーの存続について懸念の意を顕にしていたが、財団職員がバーの営業を継続させるために当該経営者に対し多額の匿名による寄付を行なうとともに、現地での演奏意欲を持つライブ演奏家の連絡先リストを提供した。


不活性標本状態のSCP-4846-6実体。█████博物館にて。(Instance SCP-4846-6 in its inert specimen form, at the █████ Museum.)

Instance #: 6 "Shelly"

Discovery Location: Channel Islands National Park, California. Handwritten note indicates that PoI-4846 and his significant other spent their honeymoon at this location.

Instance Description: An Icthyosaur (large finned marine reptile) skeleton partially encased in stone. Instance is capable of altering its size, including expanding to up to 4 meters long and shrinking to small enough to fit in a pocket. Instance functions as a self-propelling raft and is able to reliably carry up to two adult humans across shallow waters, moving at a slow pace.

Notes - Instance was recovered following the establishment of a monthly Foundation initiative to clear litter and other debris from the shorelines of the National Park. Personnel describe the initial encounter involving the skeleton rising from the incoming tide and floating to rest near the cleanup crew.

実体番号: 6 “シェリー”

発見場所: カリフォルニア州チャネル諸島国立公園。手書きのメモは、PoI-4846が当地で彼の伴侶とハネムーンを過ごしたことを示す。

実体の概要: 部分的に石中に包摂されたイクチオサウルス(有鰭の大型海棲爬虫類)の骨格標本。実体は自らの体躯を変化させ、体長4メートルまで大型化することも、ポケットに収まる程小さく縮小することも可能。実体は自走式の筏の様な機能を有し、2名の大人を載せて浅い水上をゆっくりと航行することが可能。

付記: 実体は、財団主導による国立公園内海岸線のゴミ・ガラクタ月例清掃運動の始動後に回収された。職員は最初の遭遇において当該骨格標本が上げ潮と共に浮上し、付近の別の清掃員の方へ浮動していったと述べている。


不活性標本状態のSCP-4846-8実体。█████博物館にて。(Instance SCP-4846-8 in its inert specimen form, at the █████ Museum.)

Instance #: 8 "Ray"

Discovery Location: Backcountry camping grounds, Everglades, Florida. Note indicates that PoI-4846 and his friends held annual camping trips at this location.

Instance Description: A Microraptor (small, four-winged paravian dinosaur) fossil measuring 1 meter long. During darkness hours, if left uncovered, the instance will open its mouth and emit a soft golden light, as well as increase in temperature to provide a warmth described as "pleasant" and "cozy".

Notes - Instance manifested spontaneously near Foundation staff aiding in wildlife conservation projects near the camping grounds. Personnel who had been stationed at a sanctuary for American crocodiles reported that the instance seemed to have "stepped out of" the glow of a lantern left on a table, and readily followed them back to the campsite where it was secured for transportation to the nearest Foundation site.

実体番号: 8 “レイ”

発見場所: フロリダ州エバーグレーズの山村のキャンプ場。メモは、PoI-4846が当地で友人と年に1度キャンプ旅行に来ていたことを示す。

実体の概要: 全長1メートルのミクロラプトル(4枚の翼を持つ小型の羽毛恐竜)の化石。日没後に露出状態にあると、実体は口を開けて金色の微光を放つと同時に、「心地よい」「ほっとする」と表現される熱を発し、気温を上昇させる。

付記: 実体は当該キャンプ場近辺における野生動物保護運動を援助していた財団スタッフの付近に自然発生的に出現した。アメリカンクロコダイルの保護区域に駐留していた職員は、当該実体がテーブル上に置かれたランタンの明かりから「飛び出してきた」ように見えたと報告した。実体はその後進んで職員の後に続き、近隣の財団サイトへの移送用に確保されていたキャンプ場に戻った。


不活性標本状態のSCP-4846-9実体。█████博物館にて。(Instance SCP-4846-9 in its inert specimen form, at the █████ Museum.)

Instance #: 9 "Alex"

Discovery Location: Grant Village Restaurant, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. Noted as the location PoI-4846 proposed to his wife.

Instance Description: A Longisquama (reptile possessing distinctive integumentary structures along its back) fossil. The large back structures will vibrate to produce melodic whistling sounds. Of note, this behavior is only observed when two nearby individuals who are at least on friendly terms sing together. If the sung duet possesses a romantic tone, the instance will accompany the singers with more complex harmonies.

Notes - To date, this instance's manifestation was the most time-intensive to initiate. Foundation personnel assigned to the SCP-4846 project attempted a series of strategies, including donating money directly to Yellowstone, assisting with cleanup initiatives, and helping regular tourist traffic during high-activity times. Eventually when the park's bottles-into-benches recycling initiative started and Foundation personnel contributed to the designs of the furniture made from discarded bottles and jars, the instance was spotted near the recycling receptacles. Several months later, the instance appeared sitting on one of the recycled material benches. This immediately followed the Foundation's donation of an antique piano to the Grant Village Restaurant in PoI-4846's wife's name. The piano was affixed with a small brass plaque bearing the names of PoI-4846 and his wife, as well as their anniversary date per the note accompanying SCP-4846 instance #6.

実体番号: 9 “アレックス”

発見場所: ワイオミング州イエローストーン国立公園内のグラント・ヴィレッジ・レストラン。メモは、PoI-4846が当地で夫人にプロポーズしたことを示す。

実体の概要: ロンギスクアマ(独特の外皮構造を背部一面に有する爬虫類)の化石。背部の大きな構造体は振動して口笛の様な音色を発する。特筆すべきは、この習性は付近に少なくとも共々に歌を歌える程度に親密な関係にある人物が2名存在する時にしか観察されない点である。デュエットが情熱的な声色で歌われると、実体はより複雑な和音で伴奏を行なう。

付記: 当該実体の出現には、観測された中で最も時間を要した。SCP-4846プロジェクトに割り当てられた財団職員は、イエローストーン国立公園に対する寄付の直送、清掃運動への援助、繁忙期の交通整理の補助といった、一連の方策を立案した。最終的に公園によるペットボトルリサイクル運動が始まり、財団職員が廃棄されたペットボトルや瓶から製造される家具のデザインに寄与したことで、実体はリサイクル回収容器の付近に出没するようになった。数か月後、実体はリサイクル素材のベンチの上に座っている様子で出現した。これは、財団がグラント・ヴィレッジ・レストランに年代物のピアノをPoI-4846の夫人の名義で寄贈した直後のことだった。当該ピアノにはPoI-4846と夫人の名、及びSCP-4846実体番号6に添えられていたメモの記載通りの記念日を銘じた真鍮の小さな飾り板が添えられた。


不活性標本状態のSCP-4846-10実体。█████博物館にて展示中。(Instance SCP-4846-10 in its inert specimen form, on display at the █████ Museum.)

Instance #: 10 "Buddy"

Discovery Location: Congaree National Park, South Carolina. Stated to be "where it all begun", where PoI-4846 and his former roommate went on the first backpacking trip of their lives. Of note, the documentation accompanying this instance did not possess the usual coordinates, but instead merely read, "that's all for now."

Instance Description: A Nothronychus (herbivorous dinosaur with a beak and four-toed feet) skeleton. Instance exhibits behaviors that are related to survival assistance, including foraging for edible plants to bring to its companions, directing attention to signs of nearby aggressive wildlife, and serving as a guide if directions are needed to clean water, human outposts, or areas to set up camp.

Notes - First instance that did not require additional Foundation action. When Foundation agents reached Congaree National Park, the instance was perched on top of the main signpost, as if awaiting their arrival.

実体番号: 10 “バディ”

発見場所: サウスカロライナ州コンガリー国立公園。「全ての始まりの地」との記載があり、PoI-4846がかつてのルームメイトと初めてのバックパック旅行で当地を訪れたことを示す。特筆すべきことに、当実体に添えられる文章は通常の座標を示さず、代わりに「今はただそれだけ。」とのみ記載されている。

実体の概要: ノトロニクス(嘴と4本趾の足を持つ草食恐竜)の骨格標本。実体はサバイバル補助に関連した振る舞いを示し、食用植物を仲間の元へ持って来たり、付近の攻撃的な野生動物の気配に対し注意を向けたりする他、道案内が必要な場合であれば、清潔な水や人間の集落やキャンプ設営に相応しい場所までのガイドの役割を果たす。

付記: 財団による追加措置の必要が無かった最初の実体。財団エージェントがコンガリー国立公園に到着した際、実体は彼等の到着を待っていたかのように、メインの道路案内掲示板の上に止まっていた。

On ██/██/████, a proposal was made to begin a roster listing Foundation retirees who may be assigned to SCP-4846 instances and their corresponding locations to better observe and maintain containment of the anomalies. Said proposal was approved the following week, with Researcher McNamara of the project team assigned as a preliminary trial subject to be the first designated caretaker of an SCP-4846 instance.

Shortly after, the SCP-4846 instance (Instance SCP-4846-10, "Buddy") assigned to Researcher McNamara was reported to have carried to him a scrap of paper in its mouth. The document recovered was an excerpt from Mr. Elijah ███'s last will and testament, which named McNamara as the recipient of a sizable collection of foreign currency. The collection was apparently amassed during Mr. ███'s travels, and kept in a safety deposit box at a nearby bank.

Researcher McNamara claimed the collection without incident; the currency was verified to be non-anomalous and is currently housed with the SCP-4846 instances awaiting caretaker assignment. It is noted that the SCP-4846 instance in McNamara's care has indicated interest in the inherited coin collection, often picking up individual coins and placing them into organized piles, as if mimicking behavior it may have observed previously.

The portion of Mr. Elijah ███'s will was found to be non-anomalous, with no unusual features save for a small winking "smiley-face" drawn in ballpoint pen on the back of the paper.
