The SCP Foundation. Secure Contain Protect. A group that is made to protect against artifacts which threaten the world at large.
Then again, you already know this right? It was why you were selected in the first place. You also probably know you don't really have the ability to refuse us either. It's more or less a choice if you want to do a job you're qualified for such as being an agent (or for some of you, researchers) or one you're overqualified for... being a test subject.
Anyway, here's your sign up sheet. Get it done quick we have an orientation to get done.
Gender (can end up changing)-
Job (Agent, Researcher)-
[Agents work on the secure and protect side of the equation. Many of you come from backgrounds in special-ops, with a few exceptions of course. Expect to be primarily hunting down SCP artifacts, helping to contain SCP atrifacts as needed, and... doing occasional "clean up"...
Researchers primarily will be working in the labs. You all probably need even less encouragement than the agents. You probably get off to figuring out how these artifacts fit into the frame work at large. Between reality benders and machines that do the impossible, we'll leave you to your fun]
Appearance (there is a given chance that things may happen to change your appearance. A description, and maybe even a picture, may be of use if you want your face back)
Skills (your three best characteristics in order of ability. Best on top, worst of your strengths at the bottom)
Background (What makes you an asset to the program in your own mind. We've seen your qualifications, but it helps to see how you view yourself)
(Note: Agents will start off as Level 1 clearance. Researchers will be at Level 3.
There are 5 levels, though don't expect to become level 5... an O5.)
The sheet is barebones as I plan the main events so sit tight. this is gonna take a little while, but I decided having your characters ready and open enough to make minor adjustments would give y'all a good start.
Edit 1: first of all, can't let you fur up for this RP... well not off the bat
. Just saying that just in case
second, realize you'll be dealing with the supernatural. guns won't necessarily save you. Just saying that cause of the fact firearms has been listed twice already
third: Very simple. Agents will be better at non-research related tasks. Researchers will be better at research related tasks.
fourth: Research WILL be important. Basic outline of how it works as of now is you ask questions about SCPs, and answering those questions has a time cost (considering implementing a D-Class cost also. Screw having cash to spend, you're gonna be spending human lives. heheh). If it falls under your skill set the cost will be significantly reduced. (If you can't tell time is valuable. Usually the amount of research time available will be given, but there can be... surprises)
This is pretty much the only "technical" thing I'm gonna put in this RP. Other things will be determined by how evil I'm feeling when I write up the next sequence of events.
fifth: Almost got the skeletal structure of RP events done. Probably will ask Shade or Buzz for some constructive criticism when I think it's good enough.
sixth: Expect SCPs you haven't seen yet. That said don't expect SCP-001.
More as it comes, tell me thoughts.
