Map of Laos, 1964. Bombing areas in red. Most of the area in white is now part of SCP-XXXX.

Item #: SCP-XXXX**

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: An armed perimeter has been erected around SCP-XXXX.

Confrontation with SCP-XXXX-1 instances is to be avoided if possible. Lethal force remains the only known means of subduing SCP-XXXX-1 instances. 51 specimens are stored for research at Site-41 in Indonesia.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an approximately 200000 km2 area in Southeast Asia. SCP-XXXX occupies most of the land formerly claimed by the Kingdom of Laos as well as small portions of the neighboring Kingdom of Cambodia and Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam). SCP-XXXX exhibits numerous biological, spatial, temporal, and cognitohazardous anomalies. The number of survivors of the SCP-XXXX event, if any, is unknown.

Direct observation of the inside of SCP-XXXX is limited due to a thick omnipresent haze enveloping the area. Analysis of the gas reveals high concentrations of dioxins and several unidentified benzene derivatives. Radar imaging reveals a significant amount of damage to manmade structures and the absence of all plant life.

SCP-XXXX-1 designates a currently unknown number of anomalous, vaguely humanoid entities currently within SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX-1 instances are highly reclusive and make no attempt to leave the boundaries of SCP-XXXX, and meet attempts to remove them with extreme hostility. SCP-XXXX-1 instances exhibit the following anatomical traits:

  • A variable number of external orifices, ranging from 1 to 20.
  • A variable number of fleshy extremities, ranging from 1 to 50.
  • Highly distorted skeletal structure.
  • The presence of bulbous, tumor-like growths covering up to 90% of observable tissue.
  • Behavior indicative of extremely low intellect.

Addendum XXXX-1: Due to the current global geopolitical situation, information on the circumstances of the formation of SCP-XXXX is limited. The SCP Foundation has had no presence in the Kingdom of Laos since 1959.

It is believed that SCP-XXXX came into existence between 1966 to 1973, and that the event was a gradual process. During this time period, the United States of America established a significant military presence in Southeast Asia during the ongoing intervention in the Second Indochina War, commonly known as the Vietnam War. Since 1964, the U.S has conducted extensive bombing campaigns on the Kingdom of Laos as a response to the North Vietnamese logistical system located there, informally known as the Hồ Chí Minh trail.

It is of note that the U.S is one of five states recognized by the SCP Foundation to have in possession anomalous weapons of mass destruction (AWMDs).

Addendum XXXX-2: On 1968-12-24, from 12:00 to 3:00 AM GMT, guards reported hearing vocalizations resembling weeping emanating from the inside of SCP-XXXX. Thermal imaging revealed all observable SCP-XXXX-1 instances in prostrate positions.

Since 1968, this event has repeated itself on a yearly basis.
